Man-Up Monday: Ray-Ban Remix

“What’s up? I’m Justin.”

 

 

Wait one second, Man-Up Monday… I get to customize Ray-Ban sunglasses to my own personal style? Let’s take a moment of silence for this one… This new project isn’t just for the men; it’s for us all! First, you choose the style of frames. Next, options for color contrasting eye rims and temples are given. Would you like to really stand out? After changing the color of your lenses, why not add an engraving to the sides? Nice! Now, let’s go to the beach!

Here are a few more sunglasses I chose to customize:

“Hi, I’m the New Wayfarer!”
“Hello, my name is Aviator. I’m pleased to pink you.”
“Hey there, I’m the Original Wayfarer.”
“Hi, I’m Erika.”

 

Here is the YouTube link to Ray-Bans Remix project! Check it out!

Milan Fashion Week Fall 2014 kicked off with fierce shoes!

Designers played around with texture, color, and styles to make interesting yet beautiful boots, sleepers, pumps, and sandals. A few of my personal favorites included some of the gorgeous shoes by Bogetta Veneta, which included black and red pointed reptile skin booties, a black scarpin shoe that features a nude reptile skin print, and also an amazing yet feminine black, little high-heeled scarping shoes with three jagged peaks under each side of the ankle which just made me think “I have to have them!”. Roberto Cavalli has also caught my attention with his white and silver ankle strap shoe. Overall, the designer’s use of animal prints, reptile skins, stones, studs, and embroidery on the shoes has made a bold statement in the Italian Capital of Fashion during the Milan Fall Fashion Week 2014.

Celebrity Selfies

After the viral effect of Ellen’s selfie at the Oscars (which shut down Twitter), it’s evident that even celebrities are picking up on the “selfie” trend. Various publications and online journals have already tried to analyze it, wondering if these could be candid moments or staged photographs. Either way, fans are loving the experience of sharing such moments with their idols.

Don’t forget to add some tropical prints into your wardrobe as well! A great tropical floral pattern, or a palm tree print – like the clutch pictured below- would be perfect vacation wear! Not going on vacation any time soon? These prints will give you an instant mini vacation on  a daily basis! These are all great pieces to add to your wardrobe just for update rather than a total wardrobe overhaul!  I got all these great pieces off the Harpers Bazaar website, so many great ideas!

Emma Watson for Elle

Emma Watson April Cover

On Elle’s April issue, you can see a casual Emma Watson in a denim outfit, showcasing her down-to-earth personality. In the intimate interview, Emma reflects on her life and how much she wants to accomplish things outside of acting. Here’s one of those reflections: “I remember reading this thing that Elizbeth Taylor wrote. She had her first kiss in character. On a movie set. It really struck me. I don’t know how or why, but I had this sense that if I wasn’t really careful, that could be me,” she shares. “That my first kiss could be in somebody else’s clothes. And my experiences could all belong to someone else.”

Pastel and pale-colored handbags from Marc by Marc Jacobs

The pastel color is always associated with spring and summer. Let spring and summer come, you may find many girls flaunting their looks in pastel. But there is no way that you can not wear them in winter too. If you are crazy for fashion and want to follow a trend, do it with Pastel and pale-colored handbags from Marc by Marc Jacobs. They go along well as pastel gowns were big on the runway for the Oscars.

  • Pastel- pastel colors are a timeless trend. Spotted on spring runways every year , baby pink and light blue are always a good idea! Pastel shades are chic romantic and ever so feminine. A sweet color bag is a wardrobe must have since light colors and springtime will always go together.

 

  • Pale bags- ranging from ivory to blush, are the biggest trend going for spring by far. After what feels like season upon season of prints, neons, rococo embellishments and exotics, a simple swath of dove grey leather actually does feel pretty fresh, if perhaps a little tricky to keep clean under non-ideal circumstances.
