A Timeless Piece

   Ray-Ban Wayfarers are the most recognizable style in sun wear. After their initial design in 1952, the Wayfarer was quickly visible on Hollywood filmmakers, celebrities, musicians and artists, solidifying its iconic status for years to come. The Wayfarer is available in just about any color nowadays, colorful designs are also an option when buying a pair. History, along with fresh colorful updates have made the Wayfarer a symbol of youth, fashion and creativity for over 50 years. Ray-Ban has done an excellent job of providing the public with such sunglasses. With new designs and styles that come out, you can see the trends somewhat incorporated in the newest designs of Wayfarers. They're a timeless piece that will always be a classic.
   As a classic go-to style, it's no wonder the shades are back in action. You can step out the door and see dozens of people with them on, pick up a magazine and see celebrities with them and even turn on the TV and you'll see someone wearing Wayfarers. They say history repeats itself, well so does fashion. With trends going in and out like the tides, embrace the Wayfarers while they're here and get yourself a pair. They're chic, simple and stylish- how could you say no?
Here comes the sun! Get on your Ray-Bans-

Be poppy-

Think Pink


   With every new season, comes new obsessions and on this season's list of obsessions the color pink landed itself a spot right on top. Pink is a rich, vibrant color that screams "turn it up". Pink isn’t just one color, it is a variety of different hues, and each can be worn with many other colors as well. As a color with such versatility, it's no wonder it's so stylish this spring. So when you're shopping, spring for something pink!

   What kind of pink is a la mode? Not just any pink! Honeysuckle pink, a bright, almost reddish hue, was voted the color of the year by Pantone. As far as fashion goes, it was visible everywhere on spring 2011 runways from Jil Sander to Valentino to DKNY. This tone of pink is perfectly matched up with colors such as aqua and orange. Pairing it with brights such as oranges and aquas offer bold contrasts rather than neutral colors like khaki and sand. Don't be afraid of color, make a statement.

   While flowers are blooming and growing, and so should your fashion sense. Don't be afraid to change things up! When the sun comes out, so should your inner fashionista. Wear bright colors, walk in stilettos, wear bags you normally wouldn't and be fabulous! But don't forget to be yourself. Experimentation is necessary in discovering new interests. So go out there, make a statement and be a style queen. Think pink, you won’t regret it!
And don't forget to wear your confidence!

TOMS: One for One

   You can kick your stilettos to the curb because fashion just got a bit more charitable. They've been around for a few years now, and I've been rocking them for a little over a year, but TOMS are really making a new for themselves now. With every pair purchased, a child living in poverty is given a pair of shoes. As a proud owner of two pairs, there's nothing I love about my TOMS more than the love and charity behind the shoe. As just a basic, slip on shoe, they come in many styles and designs and are also a king of comfort.
   In 2006, Blake Mycoskie founded TOMS shoes, inspired by a trip to Argentina when he witness extreme poverty and poor health conditions. But the one thing that caught his eye was children wandering the third world roads without any shoes on their feet. Mycoskie turned to the traditional Argentine alpargata shoe as a solution to the shoeless childrens' problem. He quickly set out to reinvent the alpargata for marketing in the United States. His objective for the project was to show how together, we can create a better tomorrow by taking compassionate action today.
   To set out his goals, Blake Mycoskie made a promise to match every pair of TOMS shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes to a child in need- One for One. “I was so overwhelmed by the spirit of the South American people, especially those who had so little,” Mycoskie said. “And I was instantly struck with the desire — the responsibility — to do more."
   A stylish shoe with an inspiring story behind it- this just screams fashion to me. Not only is it a trending item, but it's helping those less fortunate and that's the beauty of TOMS. To everyone that has a pair, you didn't only give a child a pair of shoes, but you gave them a smile and a reason to run like the wind. Join the TOMS movement. 
Charity never goes out of style.

Optimism & Organization

   Nothing stresses me out than packing for a vacation. When you're going away for ten days, what's NOT to bring? It's all about optimism and organization, you have to keep your cool when you stress over these little things. And staying organized when you pack is most important so you're bringing things essential to your trip. As I'm preparing for a ten day trip to Greece and Italy departing tomorrow, I've yet to pack anything. I have some kind of idea of what to bring, but I haven't gotten to the physical aspect of packing. I should practice what I preach and go organize..
Courtesy of sterlingstyle
   I've got shoes lined up, and eliminating unnecessary pairs that I don't think I should bring is close to impossible. Same with my fashion books- To bring them or not to bring them, that is the question. I'm opting out of carrying my books with me because I won't have time to read them or room to pack them. My suitcase is limited to 42 lbs. and I'm hoping that's enough for all of my clothes.
   I'm pathetic when it comes to this! But planning outfits for the next ten days isn't as easy as you'd think. Thank God for H&M, their clothes fold up so easily. Jeans that won't fold properly have come to be my newest pet peeve, I'll be leaving those at home. I've decided to relax and pack when I know what I want to take. You wouldn't think it would take me so long to figure this kind of thing out, but you're mistaken. 
   I'm so hyped up to travel and experience the fashion and culture of Europe! It'll be a wonderful experience, and with my best friend by my side there won't be a dull moment. But the fun won't start until I'm done packing! I should probably get to that right now. If I allow myself to stay optimistic and organized this packing will be done faster than I imagined!
Stressed out traveler {and I'm not even there yet..}

Spring, Sunshine and Stilettos

   Happy weekend, everyone! The sun is shining, the birds are chirping and the weather is finally warm enough to drink cold Starbucks frappuccinos. Sounds like a plan to me, how about you? This Sunday, I take off for Greece and Italy for ten days and I couldn't be more psyched. I'll get to experience the culture and fashion of Europeans and I'll have tons of pictures and fashion reports to blog about. By the time I get back, the grass will be green and the flowers will be in bloom. How can you say, "I love spring"?
Image via vogue and coffee
   Wondering how to welcome the fabulous spring weather this weekend? Louboutins and a khaki rain coat is one way to rock the new season. Step out with your friends and enjoy the beautiful weather. Whether you're stepping out in style or not, taking in the nature around you will encourage you to appreciate your surroundings and the changes that springtime brings. And it's finally warm enough for shorts! Paired with the right shirt, preferably long sleeved if you're looking to keep warm, your shorts will look great! If you've already gotten a slight tan like me, white shorts will help bring it out. And they'll look fabulous too! Spring clothes are a must have, the weather is heating up and so is the fashion.
   And what if April showers interfere with your weekend fun? If your rain coat is short and your heels are high, the weekend is already calling your name- and it's only Friday night! Pictured above, this is a great, timeless look. The style is simple yet stunning. It's definitely making a statement and anyone walking by in that outfit would turn heads. So enjoy yourself and take in the warm weather! And if it is raining, grab and umbrella and skip over the puddles. Happy weekend to all!
Strap on your stilettos and slip on your sunglasses!

The Icon Of All Icons... Ms. Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly in Blake Edwards's "Breakfast at Tiffany's"(1961).

   Drum roll please... She was one of fashion's finest, classiest women to ever walk this earth. Audrey Hepburn is a TRUE inspiration. As a trendsetter, a class act and a wonderful actress, Hepburn was nothing less than a fashion queen. She didn't "go with the flow", she went with her own flow; the flow that designers now base their looks off of, the look that girls everywhere try to emulate, the look that Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girl resembles in every episode. In her most famous film, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Hepburn portrays a New York socialite who falls in love with a young man that moves into her apartment building. In the flick, Audrey is a fashion lover and wears stunning clothing throughout the movie. Landing a spot on my favorite movie list, it will always be a classic- and so will Audrey Hepburn herself. I hope that her name lives on forever and she's never forgotten in the world of fashion.

"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and... I believe in miracles." -Audrey Hepburn

Classy is beautiful. Thank you, Audrey.

Sealed With a Kiss

   "Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick." Gwyneth Paltrow said it best, there's nothing better than bold lipstick! When a woman is wearing makeup, it's sexy when it's topped off with a bright lipstick or even a subtle pink. It highlights the lips and helps bring out other facial features. Not to mention it's hydrating and sometimes contains SPF to protect the lips! With fashion and health benefits, how could you say no? Simply gorgeous and completely feminine. Hello, lipstick.

When it matches the rest your outfit, lipstick can be super chic! There are so many shades and hues to experiment with, so try 'em all out! There's no harm in fashion experimentation, it's the only way to know if it's the color for you.
Pucker up!

D.I.Y: Burberry Trench

   Although spring fashion is filled with ladylike trends, offering us bright colors, neutral shades and floral sun dresses, our inner edge always seems to shine through. This spring, do it yourself (DIY)! Create your own Burberry trench! Erica Domesek of P.S. I Made This! The D.I.Y. guru gave us some amazing insight on how to create this spring must have. By following the easy directions below, you'll have yourself a studded trench that's a twin to Burberry's!
Courtesy of PS I Made This

INGREDIENTS:
-H&M Trench Coat ($60)
-Approximately 400 chopsticks or candy apple sticks
-Handsaw
-Gold spray paint
-Chalk
-Glue Gun

DIRECTIONS
Before you begin: if you're particularly good with a handsaw or know someone with a power table saw, proceed with Step 1. For those of you who don't have those tools handy, you can make an alternative version of this trench by purchasing and using gold studs instead. If you choose to do the latter, please refer to the second set of instructions and note that this project will get a bit pricier.

1. Cut down chopsticks or candy apple sticks to about an inch with a handsaw or ask someone with a power table saw to cut down for you. You should end up with 164 pointy ends for each sleeve.

2. Once you finished cutting the sticks, it's time to paint them! Make sure you're in a well-ventilated area and are working on a flat surface. We suggest protecting your workspace with old magazines or newspaper.

3. Apply a layer of gold spray paint to the pointy tips. Leave them on your workspace for approximately 15 minutes or until dry. Flip them over and spray the other side.

4. Before you apply the spikes to the jacket, use white chalk to outline a rectangle on each arm, starting at the shoulder and ending at the elbow. You want it to be large enough to fit approximately 24 rows and five columns, but this will vary depending on the size of your jacket and how many spikes you want on it.

5. Space the gold spikes evenly in each row and use dabs of hot glue or super glue to secure each spike onto the jacket.

6. Wait approximately 10 minutes or until the glue is completely dry before wearing the trench.

If you choose to use studs:

INGREDIENTS
- H&M Trench Coat ($60)
- 17 bags of Tree Spikes ($13/bag of 20) in Gold
-Leather hole punch or X-Acto knife
-Chalk

DIRECTIONS
1.Before you apply the studs to the jacket, use white chalk to outline a rectangle on each arm, starting at the shoulder and ending at the elbow. You want it to be large enough to fit approximately 24 rows and five columns, but this will vary depending on the size of your jacket and how many studs you want on it.

2. Create small holes using a leather hole punch or X-Acto knife where you would like each stud to go.

3. Press the post of the stud through the small hole and screw the back onto the post.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
   Good luck making your trenches, ladies! It's a fabulous and creative DIY and the time you spend making it will be time well spent. Satisfy your inner edge and use your creativity on this Burberry lookalike.
Fashion first!

The Spinning Wheels of Style

   Has an innovation ever inspired you? Inspired you to help conserve energy and look chic at the same time? I can say yes to both questions! Earlier today while I was casually glancing through an old kate spade catalog, I noticed quite a few stylish bicycles. I thought to myself, hmm maybe saving the Earth can be stylish! They were in colors of blue, red, green and pink and the models had flowers and designers on their bikes. Baskets, bows and all sorts of creative accessories were added. If you're living in an urban area and need to get somewhere fast, a bike could be your solution! On top of all the ecological benefits, you don't have to worry about parking or paying for gas. If you ask me, it's a win-win situation. If you're looking for a bike, there are a variety of chic ones online. If you search around, I guarantee you'll find a gem! Stay inspired by your surroundings and mix it up. After all, it is spring and a lovely time to be outside!

So hop on your bikes and make a fashion statement! Individualize your bike however you like, keep the air clean! Enjoy the fresh, spring air.
Ride away!

What Does Fashion Free You From?

   As I read through some feedback, I stumbled upon an interesting question, "What does fashion free you from at this stage in your life?" and I sat there for quite a while as a million thoughts raced through my head. How is fashion liberating? Why is self expression vital as we create a name for ourselves? I began to ponder questions such as these and then I reached out to my readers for their responses. 
   But I'd like to say that fashion frees me from the expectations of those surrounding me. Fashion shapes who we are, how we look and can change how we feel as individuals. It's not what you wear, but how you wear it; how you make it your own. When I'm told to wear something, I put my own twist on it. Fashion doesn't have limits, it doesn't have rules, fashion is meant to be personalized. As one searches within fashion, self expression becomes evident. When I'm able to express myself through fashion, I can give a representation of who I want to be through what I'm wearing. As many of us turn to fashion icons, you are who you pretend to be. If you're trying to be a fashionista, you can accomplish it. And by doing this, it boosts one's self esteem. When the world looks at you, they are immediately introduced to your fashion. As I stumble through this messy world, being original with style is a release from everyday routine. Just as every human being was created differently, our fashion should never emulate that of another. Fashion is liberating, fashion is creativity, fashion is originality, Fashion is Freedom.
   When I began to ask around and search for opinions within others, here are some of the responses I received:
       “As a designer I think that fashion and design is freeing because it allows you or your space to be creative, flexible, and evolve. A new day is a new look, a time to be expressive and a time to evolve and grow.” -Berry Brown of BB Jewels.
       “Fashion is very freeing to me, because as a fashion lover, it completely takes you into this wonderful and creative world, with no judgments of gender, race, color, or creed. It's all about the art.” -Irene Nesbitt
       “I would say that fashion frees an individual from misconceptions anyone has made about them, because I can create anyone I'd like to be, well, ideally creating myself. And fashion frees someone, especially a teenager, from their systematic and routine life. It can give a first impression without words. Self expression is huge. To me, it shows your full potential as a creative human being, and it really separates the normal from the thoughtful. I think the best form of self expression is when it has inspired others to do the same and to bring their inner self to the surface.” -Viki Panteleakis
       "Fashion frees me from reality because you can become a completely different person depending on which type of clothes you put on. Self expression boosts self esteem because your portraying an image to the world with your clothes and you’re doing it in a public way and not caring whether people accept or reject you." -Syra Aburto
       "I have to say, fashion frees me from preconceived notions about the kind of person I am. I can come up with great outfits that show the different personality traits I have, and it frees me from just being one of the crowd, like I have to be every day in my school uniform. A great outfit definitely boosts my self esteem. Being complimented on style is more important to me than say being complimented on athletic ability, because fashion is one of my major strengths as a teenage girl. Like I already said, expressing myself through my clothes gives off the vibes of what kind of person I want others to see me as, and without self expression I'm sure people would have different opinions of me than they do now!" -Ellie Donohue
       "Fashion is not only how you dress, but how you live. It gives a representation of oneself for the world to see. Fashion frees me from the expectations of others. It allows me to be my own person. Of course, there are always trends-what's "in" what's "out"-but only YOU have the freedom to put it together, make it your own, work it; it's all up to you. Color, pattern, texture, quality, it all adds to your outward projection of yourself, how you chose to express yourself to the world. This is truly a beautiful thing. Fashion, frees you from society, and helps to create the individual you are meant to be. Fashion IS freedom." -Stephanie Epstein
       "Fashion frees me to show someone my personality the best I can by just looking at me. Fashion is not everything, we can not be materialistic. We need to dress modest but with interest. My style is to make people think. Dress free, not just what people want to see." -Katharine Stamas
       "Fashion frees me from the negativity of daily life. It frees me from the materialistic world we live in. I don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on an outfit in order to look good. Fashion is what you make it, it's yours. It's not about the label or the price tag. Fashion frees me from repetition. I don't need to look like the models on the runway, I make my own fashion." -Paulina Patsios
   Fashion is liberating in so many ways, as you can tell from reading the responses from these lovely ladies. It allows us to be ourselves on the inside and display our originality on the outside as well. Fashion is art, and art is known to be a way of expressing freedom. Fashion is what we make of it, we can make it ours or we can be followers. Leaders in fashion will be leaders in life; if you know how to take something and make it your own, that comes in handy in many ways, not just styling. 
   Fashion can define an era in time, just as any other art form may define the ethics of certain people. It can help us see into a person's life; what they were feeling and/or what they wanted to portray. A person's style is a window into their originality and when someone's taste is evident within their clothes, you know they have style. Style isn't something we're born with, it must be earned. It doesn't come from reading books about fashion or picking up an issue of Harper's Bazaar, style evolves from love of fashion. 
   To find the style within yourself, you must build an appreciation for different trends. People with different interests may be categorized as "goths" or "preppy" or even "jocks" but that doesn't mean everyone in that stereotype dresses exactly the same. We must appreciate the style choices of other individuals to build up a fashion sense of our own. When style is born, it can never be hidden. One's style will always shine through!
   Fashion is most freeing in the sense that I know I can create it myself. Christian Dior doesn't create fashion, Dolce & Gabanna don't create fashion, Coco Chanel didn't create fashion- WE create fashion. They just helped the trends along. With these words, take risks and find the style within you. Learn to have diverse taste, accept others for their unique opinions and ALWAYS be yourself.


"Every thread that is sewn, every piece of fabric that is cut and every hem that is shortened contributes to the fashion revolution. As we watch trends unfold and styles become legendary, we create our own looks from our originality." -Zoe Malliaros


With style comes maturity; we learn to accept others for who they truly are.
Don't be afraid to express yourself, you'll always be you!
Fashion IS Freedom,

Etsy Find- Little Brown Pen

   As I was searching through guides to interior decorating, I came upon Cape 27, a creative blog, and I was amazed at these photos. She had written about Etsy, a popular website that offers stylish pieces for your interior, and these beautiful photos of Parisian coffee shops and city life caught my eye. The color schemes they're separated in helps them tell a story and relate to one another. Each color story has its own mood and it's own symbolism for its color.
   If you look here, there are even more colors to choose from. These pictures are perfect for a plain wall and can really bring life into your home. Mint green, lilac and blue are all refreshing colors that can illuminate a room. Just a suggestion if you're looking to add some "pizzaz" to your home!


Your interior is a representation of your home's mood!
Enjoy!

Hello Sunshine

   It never really landed a spot on my list of favorite colors until this season when it made a vibrant appeal. It's everywhere. Introducing.. Yellow! As a poppy spring color, yellow also falls under the category of neutral. Paired perfectly with black and/or white, it's an easy color to wear, and an even easier color to match! Dress it up, dress it down, add a little yellow into something and you'll be looking bright and fresh. Brighter colors such as yellows can put you in a better mood and help remind you that summer is indeed on its way!

   
   The usage of color is essential in the importance of fashion. A variety of colors means you're fashionably well rounded, and that's the best compliment a girl can get! Color adds vibrancy to the attire and differentiates it from "the norm". Colors like yellow will make you stand out, and in the fashion world, attention means you're doing something right. And who doesn't love a little attention?  
   The change of seasons also influences stylish colors and with warm weather on its way, let the sun shine with yellow. Prior to summer, lighter tones of yellow can be worn instead of brights and (God forbid) neons. It's great when women start to change around colors in their wardrobe when spring comes! Risk taking is wonderful in fashion, it shows us what we do and don't like. And without it, nobody would be unique.
   Also, adding yellow to the interior of your house can brighten things up! It's a vibrant, calming color that is known to fit well within houses. My house has a subtle yellow paint on the walls and it's a cool, relaxing tone. Let the cool spring breezes blow and welcome back the sun with warm tones of yellow!
Spring into new color schemes-

Prayers To Japan

After every shake, every aftershock and every power outage, we remain unharmed. But those in Japan are true heroes. They've endured so much devastation in the past month and now is our time to give some of what we have. The surviving, and even the deceased, people of northern Japan carry more courage with them than anyone else in the world right now. If Diane von Furstenberg and Kate Spade can raise awareness, so can we! It's the most tragic disaster Japan has ever faced, and they need the rest of the world to step in and lend a helping hand. With our busy everyday lives, we sometimes forget those in need and take our safety for granted. Here's a little reminder to please help Japan in any way possible! Raising awareness is the first step in our fight for a better world. 


   If you're looking to donate money, contact your nearest Red Cross. When thinking about donating money, food and water donations would be widely appreciated also. Because of nuclear energy leaks, water has been polluted and bottled water has become scarce. Let's make a positive experience out of a devastating earthquake- everyone please contribute to the relief of Japan!

Say a prayer for Japan! I know I will.
