These thick soled shoes have resurfaced from the 1970s and are perfect for the spring time. Platforms come in a variety of styles such as sneakers, sandals, boots, and pumps. Platform shoes were all the rage in the 1970s and were primary worn for attention. These days, platform shoes are still worn to make fashion statements by bold fashionistas who wear them for their combination of added height, comfort, and trendy style. Check out how these ladies wore their platform shoes in the pictures below!

This spring, I am embracing the baseball cap as a sporty accessory that can be worn in style. Baseball caps are one of the coolest trends this season and they add a masculine touch to your outfit. You can create your sporty look with a baseball cap from Fanatics; the leading online retailer for everything sports, specializing in apparel. They have a wide selection of many MLB caps perfect for celebrating America’s pastime in style or just heading out somewhere! I created four “sports luxe” outfits with baseball caps from Fanatics based on the color scheme of the caps. The baseball caps from Fanatics are the perfect gear for devoted fans to show off team pride while hitting the gym, street, or field! There is a Fanatics baseball cap for every outfit, and they can work with just about anything. The link to their hat page will be at the end of the post.

Lupita Nyong’o impressed at the 87th Academy Awards in her custom designed Calvin Klein gown. The dress is truly amazing and is hands down one of my favorite gowns worn at the 2015 Oscars. The white color of the pearls stood out beautifully among her gorgeous dark complexion, and the jewelry she wore was the perfect amount. Who has not dreamed of wearing something dripping in this many pearls? Lupita practically looked like red carpet royalty. The strappy back of the gown was the cherry on top because it made the gown fit in with the contemporary style of dresses. I bet this gown will end up in a museum one day!

There are many tricks to making your eyes appear larger, and using white eyeliner to enhance your eyes is one of them. I have watched many beauty gurus on YouTube talk about the benefits of white eyeliner, so I decided to try it out. Besides lining the waterline, there are other makeup tricks with this liner as well. You can trace the inner “V” corner of your eyes, under the eyebrow, and above the cupid’s bow to brighten up those areas. Make sure to blend the white color properly when applying it to the skin.
As you can see from the picture below; my right eye looks bigger because of the white eyeliner on my waterline.
For a bold look that can be seen on runways, trace your whole eye, wing out the liner, or blend the liner into the crease of your eye.
What do you think of this makeup look?
Today I am doing a special post. I don’t usually do these kind of personal posts but I wanted to share some of my projects from the fashion class that I take at my school. The semester is over so I will not have this class next semester. One assignment in the class was to create a couture dress made only out of newspaper (we cheated a little by making some of the flowers of out napkins). I paired up with three girls to create this dress. We created the base from thick white paper. After that step, we layered the dress with a lot of newspaper. We all came up with the design of the dress, but each of us contributed in our own way to the dress. I think the final result of the dress was fantastic and that our hard work payed off. The picture below is a picture of me and the dress:
I also created a mood board along with three outfits inspired by the mood board. I named the mood board Afrochic because the clothing that I designed was inspired by different elements of the fashion and mood of Africa. (Please ignore my teacher’s writing on my second design)
Another project I did was a poster board showcasing five designs from my clothing line called Suspended Desert. The style of the clothing is modeled after the movement of the sand, as well as the different colors of the sand and the contrasting color of the sky.
I hope you liked them!

What is so amazing about Warby Parker is that for every pair sold, a pair of glasses is distributed to someone in need. Glasses allow people to see, to learn, to work, and yet lots of people do not have access to them. There have been a million pairs of glasses distributed to people in need because of Warby Parker.
Besides the fact of how great this company’s intentions are, their new spring collection has a variety of cool and stylish glasses inspired by the sea. Although it is still winter, before you know it, it’ll be spring, and Warby Parker is already diving right into the warm weather. Warby Parker is introducing eight new shapes and six new colors. The nautical design details include anchor-hued titanium blended with blue coral acetate, sandy shades modeled after the ocean floor, and more. These fresh frames go excellently with new spring trends and the pretty colors of spring. I especially love the clear colored glasses and how you can pair anything you want with them. With the variety of shapes and colors, you are bound to find a pair of glasses that you like. With that in mind, a bold way to wear your glasses if you are a girl is to pair them with bright pink or red lipstick and a cute hairstyle. Since glasses already make your face stand out, instantly make your eyes pop behind the lens by winging out your eyeliner and wearing an extra coat of mascara. On the other hand, men tend to wear very thin wire frames to try to make the glasses vanish off their face altogether. However, this is not the best look for every man’s face. Glasses are an expression of style and they become a part of one’s visual identity. But do not let your glasses completely define your style; keep them in their place. It is important to figure out what type of glasses suit your face shape and your style. Check out these awesome photos that Warby Parker sent me of these beautiful people modeling their new spring collection:
These lovely glasses, starting at the price of $95 are already available online, in stores, and in showrooms.

I love to sleep as much as possible, a girl has to have her beauty sleep right? I try to save myself time in the morning with these tips so that I can get out my door in half an hour.
1) Pick out your outfit the night before. You might even want to try on the outfit the night before to make sure you like how it looks. You don’t want to put on the outfit in the morning only to spend an extra seven minutes picking out a new outfit.
2) Decide if you will wear makeup that day the night before. This may sound silly, but mentally telling yourself if you will or put on makeup the night before will save you any time that you would have spent contemplating if you should apply makeup or not.
3) If it is necessary, straighten your hair the night before instead of in the morning. Curling your hair the night before is debatable because curls will often loose their bounciness overnight, however straight hair usually remains straight the next morning.
4) Shower the night before. If you can stand not taking a ten minute shower to wake yourself up in the morning then opt for a shower before you go to bed.
5) Know what the weather will be the entire week so that you can choose your outfits based on the forecast.
6) Organize your closet. Divide your closet by putting the pants, skirts, and tights in one area, shirts in the other, and so on. This way, you will find it much easier and much faster to find where certain pieces of clothing are located.

These sisters have been pulling off this stylish trend for quite a while now. Whether you like the trend or not, is a matter of preference, but I believe it is timeless and will never leave the fashion world. If you were keeping up with the sisters then you may have noticed the evolution of their style. They have been updating their style and keeping old trends like turtlenecks looking modern and fashionable. Kendall has been spotted sporting a cropped turtleneck sweater several times. I think she made the cropped turtleneck sweater look super cute and her outfit is easy to copy and recreate. The turtleneck is a simple piece and can be boring if not worn correctly, but the Kardashians turned it into a fashion statement. They paired the staple with bold items like leather, red lipstick, colorful skirts, and more. The turtleneck is one of Kim’s signature looks and she demonstrates that even while being completely covered up one can still look fabulous and sexy. Don’t forget that this classic staple has been worn by style icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Jackie O. The Kardashians have often took an example from Audrey Hepburn and styled her classic black turtleneck look in their own way. The Kardashians like everyone, have made their share of fashion mistakes but here are some examples of when they were fashionably on point in their turtleneck shirts.

Makeup by One Direction is sponsoring this review by providing me with free samples of their makeup! For those of you that love bold and colorful makeup then these makeup kits will impress you! The main colors of the makeup are blue, orange, pink, and yellow which express the band’s fun and happy music. The mascara is really cool because it comes in the three colors and can also be used as a hair highlighter! Colored mascara brings out the color in eyes just like eye shadow therefore it can make a subtle statement if you apply it to the tips of your lashes or to your entire lashes. Besides mascara there is also a lip gloss kit. Liguilights Glow Gloss is awesome because it is enriched with natural oils and vitamin E. Furthermore, if you go to a party at night for example, your lips will glow if you have the gloss on! My favorite is the nail polish kit which comes in really cute colors for girls such as pink and blue and all of the polishes include glitter. Makeup by One Direction just hit Macy’s, Dillards, Boscov’s, Stage Stores, Beauty Brands, and Lord & Taylor so you can look for all of these fabulous makeup kits there!
