Philipp Plein 2017 Resort

Philipp Plein really made his recent Milan 2017 Resort Show, BAD-TO-THE-BONE! The intense styles are cutting edge and that 1950’s flair really takes you back in time. The theme was ‘50s greaser girls and it was very apparent with the bad ass pastel satin bomber jacket. The line was full of orangey-red flames decorated on the black leather jackets and pants. The strategically placed cutouts provided the right amount of sexy. The multicolored star-patched jeans are soft but loud and match so well with his star-studded motorcycle boots. I don't know what resort these looks  might be appropriate, but I could defiantly see some of these looks on the teen and tween crowds of Hollywood.

Balmain Fall 2016 ready-to-wear

Rousteing’s Balmain isn’t giving an inch on his super-glitz vision. And why should he?

 

Balmain produced a show that provokes love-it-or-hate-it reactions. Rousteing’s message for this fall is a decorated body full of pearls, lacy legs and beautiful beaded embroideries on velvet and sheer mesh. The looks are SEXY and the show was full of Kim Kardashian West inspirations. Her super gorgeous sister Kendall Jenner and the rest of Olivier Rousteing’s supermodel crew were certainly mirror images of Kim. Kendall was sporting blonde extensions and most of the looks were head-to-toe monochrome neutrals (icy gray, pale pink, and beige). The padded bubble miniskirts gave the models curves straight from the 18th century. Also, I loved the corsets with metallic waist-slimming belts which gave a look of a rounded and uplifted backside.

Valentino Spring 2016

Is it Goddess season or what? Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Picciolo created this divine Valentino Haute Couture collection. It is something out of a fairytale; long dresses with trains and earth tone colors that remind you of youthful simplicity. I can't believe the beauty that was captured in this collection. The collection is a paradox of majestic and fearless attributes, like the gold-medal serpents placed on the models soft flowing hair. It definitely leaves a lasting impression. The sheer bodices are revealing, but in a respectful manner reminding the audience of the elegance The Valentino House keeps consistent throughout designs. Each unique piece takes your breath away! This collection did not conform to the overwhelming 90's "Glunge" that seems to be coming back. But transcended you back in time, to reveal a exotic remembrance of early-20th-century romanticism. The soft lines that mimic moving water help you understand the many attributes that motivated the designers. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo PiccioloIt stayed true to The Valentino House! These designers have created modest plunging neck lines and transparent clothes that are always going to be memorable. Fashion is ART in this case!

Boost your mood!

Okay so it’s a new year, and I had lots of goals for myself. Then reality struck; I have no time to complete all of my goals. I was hard on myself at first, but I had to stop myself right away. I took a deep breath and wrote down every goal I wanted to accomplish for myself. I knew that all my goals are in reach, all I really needed was patience.


Now I feel so good and proud of myself again. I needed to organize my life and self reflect.


4 steps to CALM DOWN AND FEEL BETTER … its time.


Step 1 Take it easy

Feeling bad about yourself is a direct link to stress. If you are freaking out about something small, BREATHE! Once you feel confident with your choices, you are going to feel confident in your life.


Step 2 Do something for yourself

Take a break! Try a facial, or buy yourself something nice. Feel good with the cards you where dealt.


Step 3 Eat Breakfast

I’m not talking about a grease burrito. Try a banana and a bagel. Eating healthy in the morning increases your mental alertness.


Step 4 Workout

I am not saying to start a whole workout plan. The goal is not to over work yourself but to better yourself. Grab a fun partner to keep you motivated and on track. Working out 30 minutes a day activates the lymphatic system, while getting on track to be looking and feeling your best!

Givenchy Fall 2016

Riccardo Tisci has stolen my heart with his wonderful designs for fall 2016. His theme for the Givenchy line is FREEDOM! You can see the war he had with lights and darks in every piece. His strong designs represent confidence in my eyes.  For his men's wear, I'm diggin' the color palette. The coats are to die for; long black trench coats with some burgundy fur?! Ohhhhhbaby that screams sexy. And don't even get me started on that satin jacket. For the women's wear, you can see how he really made each look scream GODDESS! The draping was done beautifully & the sex appeal was turned up. I would expect to see Rihanna wearing the last look.

The Fashion Forecast For Spring 2016

More and more designers are coming out with lines for spring. I have seen a strong futuristic 90’s flair… it's really everything I have dreamed of. Raf Simons (artistic director of Christen Dior and one of my most favorite designers) designed a line that bottles up spring. REBORN. His mixture of soft and hard textures is beautiful. He knows what people are going to want and builds his line off of that, but still keeps the roots of the Dior fashion house in every one of his designs. In each look, you see the 90’s inspiration with a modern style. From high-waisted shorts and pants, to big sweaters and pastels...ugh I just can't deal with all the greatness from this line.

Gifts For Dudes

 

Can't figure out what to get that guy in your life? What do guys even like?  Some hard questions to deal with. For me, deciding what to get guys drives me crazy. I like to try to think of innovative gift ideas under $50, because no one is trying to break the bank. The first thing I came to understand is that men need simple, clean, fresh and something they are going to use everyday. I know exactly when my dad gets a gift he doesn’t like, because he will leave it in the closet and then give it to Goodwill within that same year.
