My Favorite Fall Trends!!

29 Aug

Hey everyone!

Here is a list of some really cute fashion trends I am loving this fall.

The first trend I am loving is all different types of mini skirts like pocket skirts, jean skirts, and high waisted skirts. These are awesome for showing off your legs and overall look really great paired with a sweater or crop top.

Another skirt trend I am loving is the pencil skirt. Pencil skirts of all kinds really do flatter all body types so this is a great trend for fall. While many pencil skirts are made out of thin fabric, many stores have started selling cozy knit ones that will keep your legs warm. Pencil skirts are also great because you can dress them up dress them down easily.

Boyfriend jeans are another very trendy item for fall. They look so laid back and cool and are super comfy!

My last favorite is the turtleneck crop top. This top is a little bit odd because its knit and sleeveless; therefore people normally don’t know how to wear it for days that are chilly. However, this problem is easily solved because it looks really cute under a cardigan or jacket! I prefer the long sleeve turtleneck crop top that looks amazing with anything that is high waisted.

Prom Dress Finds Under $200!!!

25 Apr

Hello lovelies,

It is that time of the year again; prom! Prom is when a girl is asked by a boy to a dance at her high school and gets to wear a beautiful dress and have her makeup, nails, and hair done. It can be difficult to find the perfect dress, but have no fear, I have found some gorgeous dresses that you might like!

I love this light pink dress because the minimal details make it look simple and polished yet the dress still looks appropriate for a fancy night like prom. This cute dress look great with jewelry and silver or nude heels.

This is also a simple dress but the back of it is what really makes the dress a unique one.

Clearly you are getting the point that I love when the back of a dress is interesting. This dress is perfect for a girly girl because of the giant bow which I think looks so awesome. People will definitely remember this fun dress.

This black dress is great for a girl who has edgy style. You don’t have to wear a colorful dress with sparkles. You can express yourself however you want and wear something that fits your personal style. I love the black color for this dress with the amazing back. Pull the look together with red lipstick and a pair of black heels.

Show Off Your Tan in Style!

7 Apr

Hellooo to all of you sun-kissed goddesses!

I just got back from my trip to Utah, Arizona, and Las Vegas and it was really warm there most of the time. So because I tan easily and don’t use much sunscreen, which I know is horrible, my skin got a little darker. I personally love a little bit of a tan on what was my pale winter skin, so I use clothes to make my skin look brighter, warmer, and darker. In the winter, white clothing tends to wash people out, however when you are tan, white is the best option to make your skin appear darker. Neon and pastel colors are also a great way to accentuate your tan because they provide a contrast to your skin color that will make your tan stand out. Coral is another trendy color that will make your complexion appear warmer and will bring out even the smallest amount of sun your skin has absorbed. If you are really tan, the color gold is a really great option because will look make you feel like a gorgeous tanned goddess! I hope you are all having a warm spring or are looking forward to a hot summer because I certainly am! Grab some inspiration for how to rock your tan from these pictures:

Spring Trend: Platform Shoes

8 Mar

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!

Five Fashion-Forward Ways to Wear a Baseball Cap

24 Feb

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.

The Actress that Wore 6,000 Pearls to the Oscars

23 Feb

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!

My Fashion Class Projects! (Paper Dress, Fashion Designs)

24 Jan

Hey lovelies!

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.
