The Transparent Bag
The transparent bag has been an ongoing trend, and continues to do so. Transparency has been seen a lot lately in the past few years in clothing, accessories, and shoes. A transparent piece on an outfit can entice anyone who has a quick glance, like a statement piece, leaving anything out in the open when it comes to the transparent bag. The transparent bag has a sense of vulnerability when it comes to exposing your go-to bag items. Transparency shows a quick inside look about who you are and your personality, which some people might not feel comfortable putting out there. Trends like this are now letting you decide how comfortable you are with letting yourself be fully seen in the world. Which is bringing the transparent bag to another level. What's inside a woman's bag has always been secret and private, not to suddenly be looked through by anyone (even though most women have the same items in their bag as any other woman). The transparency look is simple, but can bring a look together and make it fun or interesting.
Valentines Day his and hers!!
With Valentines Day coming up, I gathered up a few ideas for gifts to get women. There are some simple beautiful gifts to give any women, like a friend, girlfriend, wife, or mother. The red and white booties are from Urban Outfitters and the black heeled boots are from Free People, the boots are stylish and can go with any outfit. The Nars liquid blush, Origins moisturizer, I’m Real face masks, skincare and Clinique gift set is a great gift to give for getting fresh looking and gleaming skin. I personally love the delicate gold earrings, which is minimal but gives a little touch to a look. The aromatherapy candles at Bath and Body Works is always a good idea and I wish to get a dozen of them, all of the candles are so relaxing and have incredible scents. I did find a little cute blue dress from Free People that can be used for upcoming spring and summertime. The Miss Dior perfume, the Chloé perfume, and Tory Burch perfume set all have lovely scents that lasts all day. Lastly I love coffee table books and if who ever you’re buying a gift for loves them too, it can be a thoughtful gift and also a start to a coffee table book collection.
Men can be simple at times to buy gifts for, but here are some simple yet stylish, urban, and even useful gifts to give. I found shoes from Steve Madden men and Reebok from Urban Outfitters, they are both on the slightly affordable side but the Reebok’s are more of a casual look that can be paired with an outfit, and the black/blue Steve Maddens can work for a casual but more amped up look. For tops I found a long sleeved tee from Kith in the color Baked Clay, a regular black tee from Diesel, a grey crew neck short sleeve tee from Stussy, a sweater in Military Green from Diesel as well, and a black sweater from a streetwear brand in New York called, Four C. These tops can be for men’s day to day street wear style or a casual urban outfit. Accessories for men are important too, so I have found sunglasses from Le Specs that are made in great condition but are also on the affordable side, another accessory find is the black nylon bracelet from Diesel, that is minimal but an extra component to an outfit. For whomever you’re buying a gift for if they like high quality skincare, body care and aftershave, I recommend the Origins male set and Aēsop hair products, body cleansers, and aftershave lotions.
My January favorites are tights and feathers(faux). For the winter season, some black sexy but yet classy tights are stylish for any simple outfit with a small black dress or mini skirt, tights can easily and simply pull a look together. I don't really wear feathers but lately I've been really loving a look with feathers that are incorporated. There is true beauty with the look of feathers and adding any piece with feathers can instantly give you a soft and angelic look.
My Favorite Met Gala Looks
The theme for the Met Gala this year was; "Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination." This theme was by far my favorite theme the Met Gala has done. The creations of the design were between fashion and masterworks of religious art. Religious art itself has so much meaning and beauty that with fashion and Catholic art, the imagination with the creation is limitless. Some guest really outdid themselves with the theme and followed it to the T, these looks were so complex and had so many beautiful details that the architecture of the outfits gave a live recreation of these paintings.
The Trends This Summer!!
The trends this summer when it comes to clothing is the simple white dress, and the 90's mini pattern dresses, which I adore. Whether it's a short or long white dress, it gives a touch of fresh air for the summer time and gives me such a romantic feeling. I could wear a mini 90's dress everyday, they're so comfy yet so stylish and fun.
Favorite Looks From Fashion Week
Out of all the shows in New York, London, Milan, and Paris, these shows and collections caught my eyes the most. The collections I have here are from: Saint Laurent, Alessandra Rich, Brandon Maxwell, Chloe, Maison francesco scognamiglio, Pamella Roland, Dolce&Gabbana, David Koma, Fendi, Philosophy, Jacquemus, Burberry, and Carolina Herrera. These looks either have amazing detailing, very refreshing and colorful pieces, elegant and simple night out looks, and an everyday ready-to -wear looks.
Statement pieces is an interesting or eye-catching piece from your outfit. I love statement pieces because it can pull a whole look together with simply colorful shoes, bold jewelry, or anything that pops out. A statement piece is supposed be something that someone first notices about you or draw their eyes to. I adore statement pieces because they can be so powerful for your look.
Blazers for Winter
Winter is approaching and I’m obsessed with the blazer look this year. I always like the business suit, oversized blazers, and blazers dresses and I think it’s a great pieces for the winter season. I especially adore plaid blazers (or anything plaid lately) but it goes well with the winter season!!!
Sustainable Fashion Brands
There is so much importance for sustainability brands and what they're doing for the environment. Sustainable fashion brands is a growing trend that is better for the environment than fast fashion. Fast fashion is produced in mass productions that are spread out around the world with large factories with many factory workers making low quality fabrics and exposed to dangerous chemicals. There have been many accidents that have ended in death due to mass production conditions. When it comes to sustainable fashion, recycled and eco friendly material; organic wool, silk, bamboo, linen, etc.
Here are some of the top sustainable fashion brands:
