Spring 2017 Fashion Trends. What Colors To Wear This Spring?

Blue or green, red or orange, white or black? In case you’re wondering (and even if you’re not) what spring 2017 fashion trends and color trends are hot, I will tell you: all of them! Is that great or what? On one hand it’s great because it’s a safe ticket to getting it right if you are a trendy person, but on the other hand if you’re more of a fashion headless chicken (did somebody call me or something?) well then… welcome to the hell of all hells, also known as ‘too many options’. Let’s take a moment now to get over the panic. If there’s one thing that could sum up my fashion life up to now it’d be black. All black. All the time. And sometimes, when I’d feel slightly adventurous I’d pop in a dash of white, or maybe red on really…

2017 OSCARS Red Carpet: Best & Worst Dressed

Last night was one of the biggest and most eventful nights in Hollywood Oscars’s history. Viola Davis won her Oscar being the first black woman to win an Oscar, Emmy, and Tony award for acting.  Mahershala Ali won best supporting actor being the first muslim to win this award, La La Land won best picture. Oh, sorry, no, scratch that. It was Moonlight. That’s how it went down. Oh… and the red carpet seemed poor in ‘wow’s’ and stunning best dressed. I decided to not sugar coat anything. I’m already having major sweets craving, I don’t need such temptation in my life. So I will be direct and subjectively honest when it comes to 2017 Oscars red carpet. It was one of the worst red carpets. Yes, there were obviously best dressed actresses and those who were looked beyond amazing and stunning and my heart…

The Holy Trinity: 3 Accessories You Need Right Now

We all love things that come in threes, right? Men in three-piece suits. Cheese, tomato, and pepperoni on a pizza. Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Hmm… Destiny’s Child? The point is that three is a strong number, and this rule of awesome things coming in threes definitely applies to your accessories. Right now, we’re talking a fantastic trio of watch, necklace, and a pair of earrings (okay, that’s technically four things, but let’s quickly move on). These accessories can turn a good outfit into a great outfit – small touches that can complement your clothing in big ways. Bigger choices don’t always mean better, as often it’s simply about what works well with your chosen outfit. So, mix and match as much as you like, but just make sure you’ve got some good options to work with. And that’s why we’re here! Watches Let’s start with…

2017 Trend Alert: Monochromatic MAKEUP

Reads title. Goes and gets red lipstick. Applies it on lips, eyelids, and cheeks. Takes a selfie. Goes out. #SheSaidItsATrend What?! Right? Right. That’s actually one way to do the monochromatic makeup trend of 2017. But maybe you go for a more natural lipstick color. Unless of course you’re a model in a fashion editorial. Back in the 80s, my mom was not a model, but she did use this lipstick trick on her cheeks, I remember so well as I was just a little girl and would love to watch her do her makeup. Lips and cheeks were her thing and she actually rocked this monochromatic trend way before it was a massive Instagram trend. What is MONOCHROMATIC MAKEUP & why is it a trend in 2017? Monochromatic makeup means same tone makeup, and if the colors allow you even same per se color…

#LorenasTees Part II: PINK

Why do one post when you can do two, you know what I mean? Yesterday I was telling you about how rocknroll and 70s wild-child-wish-I-were-a-diva I felt for like a brief 20 minutes over the weekend when I wore Lorena Garoiu art on t-shirts pieces. What I didn’t tell you was that after my alter ego was done with the 70s situation (induced by this #LorenasTee) I too quickly slid into some pink mood, a little bit more girly if you will. Perhaps more glamorous ’cause of the shades, but still with a tiny edge. I was wearing the same things for God’s sake, changing in my closet, I mean car. Ain’t much of a difference there, OOTD wise. How did I do that, you may ask? I just switched t-shirts and wore #LorenasTee number 2, this light dusted pink piece that has printed her…

2017 Winter Trend: (Faux) Fur Coats

Once upon a time (faux) fur coats were quite a niche look: either super rich socialite, OR granny chic style you know. So if you secretly loved fur coats but were neither a grandma nor a rich socialite, and instead had a 9-5 job, a tube ride to work every day, and just a strong a penchant for fashion well then… too bad for you. Sometime circa 2013 though, fashion decided enough is enough! Everyone wants to look like a million bucks, and there are more gals out there who love luxe then those who don’t, and you really don’t need to wait until you make your first million, or reach the beautiful age of say 60 to be socially acceptable in a fur coat. Nope. So for the last 5 years or so fur coats have been the IT coats of winter, and 2017…

#ShoppingGuide: 5 Office Outfits For A Perfect Monday-Friday Style

You’re at your desk, sipping on the 3rd coffee, begging for inspiration & work motivation, procrastinating, daydreaming about last or next weekend, avoiding the work-agenda of the day and instead cheekily spending hours on your fave sites and adding to cart #ootds, food, shoes, books, gym wear, everything you need and more importantly don’t need. Does this sound familiar? Good. Since we’re all rowing the boat here why not actually get some good stuff out of it? Like shop for the perfect #OOTDs for each day of the week, for work? That way we’ll be actually indulging into a somewhat guilty pleasure but the same time we’ll be investing in our perfecto wardrobe AND do something for work. Motivate ourselves through perfect outfits of the days. YAS. (do people still use this phrase?) 1.MONDAY. #GloomyButPosh On the ‘worst’ day of the week wear black. And…

3 Pastel Outfits To Wear This Winter

Pastel will be the #1 trend this spring, if you didn’t know that now you know. From dusted pinks, to baby blues, to de-saturated greens and ice-cream 50’s colors, pastels were back on the runway for SS2017 collections and they will be invading retail shops soon as the damn winter is over. Truth is pastel was never really gone, and sartorials were picking light clothes over dark ones for sometime now. Hello nude trend, grey outfits, and white in winter. So why not step outta the comfort zone and try a little pastel adventure to better master this trend come spring, you know? It’s only light pinks and blues after all, right? Aside from the sheer panic I feel, that I’ll be super exposed and pajama-like draped in pastels, and that these colors don’t really compliment my not-so-fair-skin-tone… I LOVE this trend. I love it.…

#CherHair: Is Waist-Length Hair The New Look?

From now on you may call me Rapunzel. I’m not quite there yet, but I’m working on it. For the first time in a long time I feel like I’m a step ahead of a ‘trend’… My hair is growing, life is good. Who knew that my overuse of coconut oil and my unabated hate towards scissors would ever pay off sartorially. Ha. At this point me and Kim Kardashian could be besties. I’m growing my hair past my ego (I really hope it reaches my waist by this summer. #hairprayers), she’s rocking the Cher inspired hair all the time lately. So… if you chose not to acknowledge this relationship, that’s your problem. This post practically hit me in the face on Monday when I realized something. While having my coffee, and still struggling with a damn running nose, planning my week, working (I know.…

How To Increase Product Demand Among Customers?

“Don’t find customers for your products; find products for your customers.” ~ Seth Godin. When this American author, entrepreneur, marketer, and public speaker spoke on TED Talks, on How to Get Ideas to Spread, all the promotional marketers followed his advice carefully. The marketing guru added that to get what you want, or cause the change that you want, you need to find a way to spread your ideas to as many people as possible.
