Spring Mix and Match – White Pumps!March 18th, 2014

White PumpsClassic black pumps are being challenged with the clean and minimalist presence of white pumps. Besides being a simple neutral hue, white pumps give a little more contrast in color and character without an over-the- top design.  White pumps also provide the edgy look you need for a notice-me outfit.  Check out how the street fashionistas out there combine them according to their personal style.

A fabulous idea is pairing a matching suit with a pair of white pumps. This will give the impression of fun and chic, going beyond the look of boring office wear.  Want to look casual and chic? Throw on a pair of bright colored pants, a simple white t-shirt, and white pumps. Too cute! Want to play with the prints? Mix tropical prints with muted colors to help you celebrate spring and welcome summer. Then add white pumps to take your appearance to another level.

White pumps tend to have simple and clean designs, which makes these shoes easy to mix and match with different outfits, so have fun with it!

Must Have Winter Staple: CashmereJanuary 25th, 2014

cashmereAs the winter is getting colder and colder, dressing the part is definitely a no joke. Forget baggy sweatshirts or bulky sweaters; don’t let the bitter cold winter stop you from looking chic!  Consider a cashmere sweater; a remarkable piece that surely won’t score you the ugly sweater award at the holiday party.

A cashmere sweater is typically lightweight, very soft, thinner than most cotton or wool sweaters, yet extra warm. The price is definitely much more expensive than any other sweater because it is made from a fiber collected from the cashmere goat after winter. Cashmere goats naturally grow a layer of very fine hairs to withstand very low temperatures, so it is very warm.  Plus, it is a great investment piece that will last for years as long as you take care of it properly.

Nowadays, you can find cashmere beanies, gloves, scarves, and socks that will keep you toasty warm from head to toe.

Stay warm and stylish!

Look Chic at Your Holiday PartiesDecember 18th, 2013

The holiday season is approaching!

As always, towards the end of the year is usually filled with family dinner parties, office parties, and other holiday events. When going to parties, you are expected to look your best; sometimes you might also have to follow the theme decided by the host of the party. Here are several rules to remember before you choose what to wear.

1. Dress according to the theme of the party

If you are planning on attending a party, there may be a certain dress code required. Make sure to read the invitation carefully, or ask the party host what is appropriate to wear.

2. Dress age appropriate

Age group plays an important role in your dress code. In the case of a party with friends the same age, you have more freedom to express yourself. But if you go to a party where there will be people from your office, your boss and co-workers or older relatives at a family gathering; wear clothes that are not too revealing and not excessive. For this, you can always rely on a shift dress!

3. Dress according to the location of the party

If your invitation does not mention the specific dress code, you can judge the appropriate dress code from where the party is going to be held. For example, if the party is going to be held at a luxury hotel, you are allowed to wear a formal or semi-formal party dress. Likewise, if a party is going to be held at a home or more casual location, trousers and a sweater might be an option.

4. Avoid clothes that are too sexy

Do not to wear clothing that is too revealing, this creates an un-classy look.  Avoid clothes that accentuate your body to the extreme. The less skin you show, the more elegant you look!

5. Avoid excessive accessories

It’s best not to use too many accessories. Choose simple jewelry to make you look charming, and top it off with a gorgeous clutch and matching shoes.
