Karl the King of Detail

CHA_2565.450x675 Paris fashion week is my favorite fashion week by far. Mostly because I have a love affair with Paris but also because some of the greatest fashion houses in the world are in Paris, including the one and only ChanelKarl Lagerfeld has been the designer of Chanel since before I was born, but if there is one thing that I love most about his design, it is his attention to detail. The recent collection for Fall 2013 RTW was a great example of his attention to details through the perfectly curated textiles, jewelry and accessories. When I saw the boots draped with chains, globe shaped bags and the fingerless spiked gloves I became giddy!  Karl is a genius, with that said  here are some of my favorite detail shots from this past week in Paris, hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  Continue reading

I had a request from a dear friend of mine Kyla, she asked if I would a post about what to wear to an interview. She wanted a professional yet still fashionable outfit. This is hard because it depends on several factors: what the job is, where you are, and the company. These pieces I put together are what I think are essentials for a work wardrobe. I think it is important to have color and pattern in your work attire so that it’s not the same black, grey and brown you normally see in the work place. You can add color by your shoe or a skirt or even with a lip color. Essentials to have are a watch, a cute work/laptop bag, and a good blazer. Below are some inspiration outfits! Continue reading


            Im sure most of you have seen the Gap “Be Bright” campaign. When I saw it I thought “oh thats cute and fun for spring but not so original”. Until today I saw one of my favorite magazines, Rue Magazine styled something for Gap and I HAD to see because I knew it would be great! I came to find that many of my favorite fashion websites and blogs styled a series for Gap called “Styld.by”. I was in love, even the title is clever! Such a great idea to appeal to an audience who is following style blogs for fashion inspiration. They are appealing to the new social media craze by making it easy to share the campaign on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest.  Two thumbs up Gap you hit the nail on the head with this one. I think I will now need to visit Gap tomorrow! Check out all of the Styld.by looks here.
