It be for a casual day walking around or an evening out with friends, no longer should we look at overalls as a piece of garment that is only restricted to day time, and play dates as we did when we were kids. We’re older and wiser now, right? Therefore, think beyond pairing your overalls with a simple t-shirt and sneakers and dress it up. Continue reading “Denim Overalls Are Back.” »
I don’t think peplum tops get enough credit. This fashion trend hit us big last spring and after seeing the S/S’ 13 collections during New York Fashion Week, it looks as though we have a peplution on our hands people and you’re either with the peplum or against it, but why against?
For those who missed it, last week I hosted my first giveaway on romeostyle.com. The word was send out through the Youtube blow-horn for a come-one-come-all clicking session, giving you the opportunity to win a gift box filled with goodies worth $50! I could of easily put one fashionable item in the box valued at $50, but this was about showing how far one can stretch a dollar, and still look chic!
Thank you to all that participated and signed up. Check out the video for the winner and the must-have pieces I selected!
If you want any of these accessories plus more, all you have to do is hover hover hover!
I call these my fashion lego pieces. Beautiful empty boxes, some covered in leather, or suede others embroidered or bejeweled. Let’s continue with calling them minaudiere. Said out loud it sounds like” me-no-dare” which is a suiting name for these hard-case box clutches, the new must-have hand stuffers literally beating the oversized, soft envelope clutches we’ve been carrying throughout the summer months. Minaudiere clutches forces us to edit down only to the essentials we can fit into a 6″ box. Ohh the tough decisions we must make, the lipstick or the BB cream?
Now let’s play lego with some minaudieres that range in prices and looks.
What we carry in our handbags can give others more insight into our personality and what we do better than any resume or profile created on a dating website.
For my guest blogging gig, I asked a handful of friends to open their handbags, and share the goodies they can’t leave their houses without. After seeing what they carry, I think there should be a more chic definition of bag-ladies. Erykah Badu’s version has nothing on these gals!
The first official day of summer is June 20th 2012 and the past few days in New York City with temperatures over 80 degrees there will be no transition time just…. just nothing. I’m decided to start my Will Smith’s “Summertime” dance remix now. I’m doing it with small doses of pastels and neons, avoiding head-to-toe floral prints like it was the plague, overloading on the bangles so they feel like weights, rocking short like the boys, maxi skirts dragging like I’m walking the red carpet, and spikes to keep the bad ones three feet away. Those are just a few of my favorite things. Cue the music!
The first time I rocked a pleated garment was at the age of five. The fabric was a heavy cotton-polyester blend; the style, overalls; and the place, primary school in Trinidad and Tobago. I rocked the pleats for about seven years straight after my first time, so my relationship with the folds wasn’t one that I have fond memories of. Time heals all wounds, scars and my love hate history with extra fabric. I’ve found some ways to help me bring pleats back into my life so the second time around, pleats can give me happy memories. Let’s see if these ideas might help. Continue reading “Pleated Its Way Back Into My Life.” »
Wikipedia’s definition of a chokehold or choke is a general term for grappling hold that critically reduces or prevents either air (choking) or blood (strangling) from passing through the neck of an opponent.
My definition: A chokehold is a piece of fabric or material beautifully made to fit tightly around the neck. This chokehold, sometimes called choker, or artful neck-piece, may be so tight that it cuts off ones ability to speak, leaving this piece of art to do the talking for you. Just breathe lightly in and out your nose.
To love you should be ok with feeling pain. For me, the longer I’ve had that love in my life, depending on the situation, it makes it easier to let it go when the time comes. The memories, and the lessons learned shall help me move on easier, but what about the new found loves that come into your lives, and leave before they can stay a couple of nights in your house or your apt? You haven’t been able to show off your cute outfits for this love and see if it compliments your looks or not.
Not being model height nor fitting into the petite category has some disadvantages, especially if you work in fashion. They don’t call it sample sale for nothing. This comes into play sometimes when I want to wear my favorite length in skirts and dresses, the midi. I don’t want to always wear a pair of flats or outrageously high heels or platforms with every midi dress or skirt I plan on wearing this summer. I did have this question pop up a couple of time already, and since it’s one I can relate to all to well, just wanted to share some options, and styling tips that may help those inquiring minds.
