I recently bought 3 amazing items from Zara. Oh Em Gee, I cannot get over my neon blazer!
I am sure this particular piece will be worn to death. Oh, and those heels I got, I cannot get over them either. They are very feminine, yet edgy. They are very sexy!

Take an advice from me, and run to Zara. They have the most amazing pieces for this summer!

From My Mind to You

I added a few more pieces to my Etsy store today! I am absolutely in love with them. 

I have been thinking about them and making them in my mind for a while now, I am so happy to finally have executed them, and now they are a finished complete product and just how I envisioned them!

I hope you are all having a great weekend. 

Now i have a few other crafty projects waiting for me on the kitchen table. Catch you in the next post!

Designer of the week: Dannijo

If you haven’t gotten the hint from my previous post, Dannijo is the designer of this week. It is founded by sisters Danielle and Jodie Snyder in 2008, and hand-made in New York! They have amazing designs that I am absolutely in love with. Their recent collection, Mr. Dannijo, a collaboration with Man Repeller, is definitely my favorite.

Bustier

A bustier is one of the many clothing articles you need to own, especially for this summer. It is everywhere!

I mean, what a better piece can a girl own? No matter how edgy the piece is, it screams feminine when put on, especially with a high waisted bottom!

Cruising..

A couple weeks more and the hubby and I will be on a cruise to the Bahamas. How exciting! All I could think of now is the sun, the beach, the sand, the sunny skies, the relaxation,  and the delicious food.

I am preparing my outfits now since it is getting closer and closer 😀

these few pieces will be great for lounging around and touring the tiny streets of the islands.

Gold Digger

I used to hate gold tone accessories. In a fact, I didn’t own any piece of jewelry in gold tone. I always thought it was for older women and never got to like it. However, for the past couple seasons, gold tones started attracting me more and more everyday.

Now, I am totally obsessed with gold tones. I do not wear silver toned jewelry as much anymore! Actually, many times I find myself not wearing my wedding band & engagement ring simply because it doesn’t match!

Since I have olive skin tone, I love how the gold accessories compliment my skin. Here are some beautiful pieces I came across. My wishlist keeps expanding everyday. My wallet and I are in a huge trouble!

2012 Spring Trends

We all can feel the spring approaching. As I was driving to work this morning, I noticed how it wasn’t as dark anymore. The sun actually came out earlier than what it had been doing for the past few months. This observation instantly drew a smile on my face and lifted my mood (I am sure we all can agree that driving to work, at 6am in the morning, is not the ideal thing to do!).

Spring is my favorite season of all, especially when you live in Virginia. Virginia has one of the worst winters (well not this year, at least we haven’t seen anything yet), and it has one of those nasty hot and sticky humid summers; therefore, spring and fall are the best seasons in this state. However, spring always wins!

Spring = bright sunny skies + a nice breeze + Easter + Blooms + Cherry Blossom in DC + My Birthday! On top of all that, this year Spring 2012 means Pastel colors + Neon colors+ A-symmetrical skirts + Spikes and studs + Chunky Chain Accessories + tiny jewelry pieces + Brogue shoes + loafers + and another trend that is going to help us transition from winter to Spring and stick with us for a while is the Ankle Boot!

Here are a few ankles boots that you can put your hands on. I have 1, 2, 3 as my favorites. I think they would look extra cute with a bodycon mini neon skirt, a flowy pastel sheer shirt, a couple layers of chain necklaces, a stackable rings, and finally a subtle eye look with a bold lip color!

Happy Spring!

I cannot help it but..

I cannot help it, but keep looking and searching for vibrant color clothing items. I guess its how they say, you wont know the meaning of something until you lose it. Same here, I think because its the winter season, you start to see less and less of those vibrant colors, you start noticing browns, blacks, and greys all around and surrounding you. Well I miss Color, I miss it so much and want it back in my life! Image
