Reasons You Should Wear The High Waisted Skirt

18 Apr

High waisted skirts can be styled in many different ways, but this spring they are especially hot to wear with crop tops. If you would like for me to go more in depth on that topic please let me know! But for now here are some reasons that you should invest in some quality high waisted skirts:

1) Creates a contrast against the drop waist

2) Defines your waist; sculpts, slims, and shapes your body with a single piece of clothing

3) Gives you an hourglass silhouette

4) Makes your legs appear longer

5) Thins your waist

6) Gives your posture a boost

7) Outfit, and skirt options are endless.

8) Good for all body types

9) Allows you to show some skin in a sexy, chic way that is still tasteful, appropriate, and trendy

10) Great replacement of a dress

11) Can be worn to many different types of events

Miley Cyrus In Marc Jacobs Ad Campaign

5 Apr

Miley Cyrus’s massive shift in image continues to pay off for her, because now she is able to score even high fashion modeling jobs. The shoot was for a spring 2014 ad campaign shot by David Sims and styled by Katie Grand. In the pictures Cyrus is on a deserted beach surrounded by zombie-like models. The edgy pictures that she posed in for Marc Jacob’s ads did not look as horrid as expected, with the freaky high fashion vibe and the cool clothing; however, having Cyrus model in a high fashion ad campaign is a bit of a spit in the fashion industry’s face. From one look at these photos I was able to determine that Miley Cyrus and high fashion do not go together. In fact, the in-house photographer Juergen Teller, refused to work with Cyrus and didn’t shoot the 2014 ads. Cyrus’s same pouted lips and distant eyes in every picture received a lot of agreeable negative critique, although I can fully appreciate how refreshing it is to see no tongue hanging out and actual clothing that covers her skin. My favorite picture is the very first one because I love the garments and how they are styled, but do not get me wrong, Cyrus is not able to sell the attire like the other models.

Girls: Catch On To The Timberland Trend!

16 Mar

As I was watching people walk by, a pair of yellow construction boots caught my attention. I noticed that guys seemed to be obsessed with these comfy classic shoes named “Timberland”. Nathan Sqartz began the Abington Shoe Company in South Boston, where he created one of the first waterproof leather boots. In the 1980s, Timberland became an icon in Europe, especially in Italy for the middle class group searching for the “Made In America” look. They were also  popular with the hip hop fans at college back in 1987. The boots may be ridiculously over priced, but the comfort and fashion statement you will be making could be worth it.  The shoe can be worn with anything and can help create a look.

I wouldn’t expect myself to like this boot, but to my surprise, I love its boyish and rugged outdoor appeal! Plus the original mustard-camel color is a bonus! In Europe, girls have already caught on to the trend  and are seen purchasing the yellow boots and rocking them with their outfits. Women celebrities in America like Rihanna and Rita Ora have also been spotted wearing Timberlands.

How do girls wear them? My tip is to start off with black leggings or jeans and a simple shirt, you will catch on from there!

Boys? Any type of jeans folded right above the boots.

Brilliant pair of shoes! Let me know if you own a pair, and if you do, comment on how you style them! :)

Best Dressed At 2014 Oscars

7 Mar

The Oscars was a beautiful sight this year; with the fabulous and bold dresses that actresses risked to wear. Hollywood’s sweetheart Lupita Nyong’o impressed as usual with her simple pale blue Prada dress. I especially appreciate the skirt of the dress along with her adorable accessories which gave her the look of princess Cinderella. Another lovely dress that I loved was Kristin Bell’s, she wore a white dress with a structured bodice and mermaid train that gave the dress a unique and exciting look. I became obsessed with the elegant royal blue that Sandra Bullock sported because it is so excellently designed and executed that it makes me wish that she would wear it to every event. Charlize Theron brought back memories of her role as the evil queen in her Dior Haute Couture gown. Black is a color that you can never go wrong with but a dress like this may be hard to pull off for just anyone because of its cool cut shape of the bodice. I cannot decide on which dress was my favorite from these amazing gowns so tell me by commenting which dress was your favorite! :)

Wake Up With Curls (No-Heat)

25 Feb

For those of you who use a curling iron, I assure you that with this no-heat curling method, you will toss your curler out the window. Not bluffing guys, this is what I’ve been doing with my hair for the past week or so and it works magic. I don’t like to share my beauty secrets with everyone but since all of my readers and followers are my best friends, I’ll let you in on the hair secret. :) A lot of people actually already know about this awesome hair curling method but if you don’t, here are the steps:

Step 1)

Shower or dampen your hair and take a headband that circles or goes all the way around your head and put it over your hair, hippy style.

Step 2: Take a section of hair, right underneath the headband in the front. Depending on how thick you want your curl to be, should be the thickness of the strand, so if you want big fat curls take a large chunk of hair.

Step 3:

Next take that strand of hair and loop it under the headband.

Step 4: Now you add on another section of hair and also loop it under. Continue wrapping the hair until you get to the back of your head.

 

Step 5: Do the same thing to the other side of your head until you reach the nape of your neck.

Step 6: Tuck in any lose strands, secure with bobby pins if needed and hit the hay! (I just had to put a picture of Sleeping Beauty).

Step 6: Wake up with cute bouncy curls that you can be proud of! Lock in with hair spray.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it helpful! Let me know if you have used it before or if you are planning on it!

Kendall Jenner Walks Marc Jacobs

15 Feb

A new teen model is on the rise in the fashion world. Kendall Jenner is pushing her fellow family members off the spotlight and is shining through and being accepted in the high fashion industry. The gorgeous brunette has been talking about her love for modelling since forever and now her dream is finally coming true! Kendall was barely recognizable backstage because her hair and makeup completely transformed her from being an 18 year old Californian to an awesome and superb looking model. As much as I would love to say cheers to her, it’s a little bit difficult considering that she really had everything handed to her on a silver platter in her career. It certainly doesn’t hurt that her crazy family has so many connections and can really get anything they want. Whereas, other people have to work really hard to be discovered or book shows. And sure the older Kardashians certainly have worked a lot in their lifetime, so maybe they deserve some of the things they get, but has Kendall really experienced everything that a regular hard working model has? Of course not! Do you think she has it too easy as well?

Kendall Jenner

Kendall walked the Marc Jacobs fashion show, sporting a short wig and severe makeup that made her eyebrows perform the disappearing act. Jenner walked the catwalk in a completely see-through long sleeve V-neck sweater, sans bra. I am personally not exactly a fan of Kendall’s outfit but it looks pretty cool with everything including the hair and makeup put together. The outfit is kind of awkward but that was probably the point, since it was a very uncomfortable show for the viewer to sit through in general, from everything to the music/creepy voicing to the set.There has been a lot of outrage and criticism over Kendall baring her chest, but honestly it does not bug me one single bit. I think we are all grown up and mature enough to handle a bare chest covered by see-through fabric on a high fashion runway. I would understand if 12 year olds were disgusted over this, but that’s because they don’t know better. Adults and teens who understand fashion however should be able to understand that Kendall did not pick out her own outfit. And she wouldn’t object to anything that the designer picked for her because a model’s job is to showcase anything that the designer chooses to put on them. I think she did an awesome job and she was a good sport, and her fans should be proud of her for being strong and confident. Maybe Kendall can even teach the other Kardashians, Kim especially, about beauty and self confidence. Go Kendall!

Hope you liked this post!

Blonde To Brunette

9 Feb

Hello lovely readers,

Before I start this post I would like to apologize for being late on my posts lately, unfortunately I have been quite busy with schoolwork and activities.

An extreme change in hair color can alter your entire look, however dying your hair from blond to brown is probably the best hair color change that there really is. Countless celebrities have gone through with this and they have shown that it looks fabulous on them. Even if it didn’t improve appearance, the brown hair certainly did not look worse. I have observed that brown hair can make people look more mature, intelligent, and can frame and thin your face. If you have dirty blond hair and dark brown hair this is a sign that you would look great with brown hair, but if you have very light hair (including your eyebrows and lashes) brown hair may be more difficult for you to pull off. Katy Perry and famous actress Leighten Meester, are my favorite blonde beauties that have gone to the dark side. They both have very delicate and pretty facial features so they can basically pull off any hair color, however the rich chocolate color truly does look awesome on them.
