Kim Kardashian in LAX, April 22, 2012

Kim loves the neon trend and was seen out in LAX wearing a Rachel Roy cardigan, she was also wearing leather pants: Elise Overland | Tank: Balmain | Shoes: Gianvito Rossi | Bag: Hermes Birkin | Vintage Sunglasses: Gianfranco Ferre :: GFF 16/S

Kourtney Kardashian out in New York, April 24, 2012

Kourtney looks so beautiful pregnant! She's totally glowing. I love that fringe tunic. It's twelfth street by Cynthia Vincent. She is also wearing Mason leather pants, Louboutin shoes and Celine bag.

New MAC makeup

I really love MAC makeup. Especially MAC lipsticks. This time I didn't get any lipsticks, but I got three other things that I have come to LOVE. I bought MAC stobe cream - I have used this every day since I bought it on my cheekbones. Gives such a nice glow. I also got MAC eyebrow pencil in Lingering and MAC eyeshadow in Satin Taupe.
I love all three products. Are any of you MAC lovers too?

Flowers Everywhere

Flowers Everywhere
(Click on photo for more information)

Floral prints are so very fresh, feminine, of-the-moment, and I simply cannot get enough of them. When I saw these two prints, I just knew that I had to create outfits around them.

I think that the first look would be very appropriate for the day. This is a great casual but stylish outfit that you could wear to lunch, shopping, or just running errands. 

The maxi dress is something that can be dressed up or down. I chose to dress it up slightly, making it appropriate for a summer dinner date. In the past a clutch has usually been thought of as evening appropriate only. Although clutches are making their presence known as 'day' wear, I still like the idea of one to take to dinner. Since the jewelry is simple (but still elegant), I decided to use a shoe with a bit of excitement. The stones on the heels of these sandals add a bit of elegance.

When wanting to dress this maxi down, I would put on a pair of flats, cinch the waist with a skinny leather belt, add a bright blue cardigan, and finally, a leather crossbody bag.

I hope you guys have a fantastic Friday and weekend!

Two Trends, One Look

Two Trends, One Look

As you know (especially if you have been reading my blog), the floral trend as well as the color trend have both been pretty popular for quite some time. I decided to put together an easy-to-wear look that subtly incorporates both trends. 

Since I am pretty much obsessed with blazers at the moment, I decided to start with a bright red one. If you don't own a blazer, it is a must (in my opinion) for your closet. You can get navy, black or camel as a basic (you will wear it forever), but then getting one or two blazers in bright colors will bring a little excitement to your wardrobe. Forever 21 has some great blazers here and here if you want some inexpensive options.

The little floral top works perfectly under the red blazer. I liked the idea of using two bright colors (the blazer and the sandal) to keep the look springy. Of course I had to throw in some distressed jeans to keep the look from becoming too formal. 

I hope you guys have a great day! Don't forget to like my facebook page!

Kim Kardashian out in NY, April 25, 2012

I always love a black and nude combo. So chic and so timeless. I love the waterfall front blazer Kim is wearing. - I need me one of these:) 

Kick Up Your Heels

Loft tank, Loft jeans, Topshop sandals, Unknown belt,
Charming Charlie ring and bracelet (a necklace worn as a bracelet), Essie's Status Symbol Polish

There is nothing better than a comfortable pair of jeans. Pair them with a cute striped tank and some casual flat sandals and you are good to go. I decided to throw in the red belt for a touch of color.

Anyone that knows me will understand that this last picture is a normal picture for me... I  just had to throw it in for fun. Have a great Wednesday!

DIY - Magazine Gift Wrap

I've always liked looking at the ads in my fashion magazines. I think there are some pretty interesting ones and I love to see new products from designers.

I always hang on to my magazines for a few months before getting rid of them. Before getting rid of a stack this weekend, I ripped out a few ads and decided to use them in an unusual way.

I started by ripping out ads that shared some of the same colors. All of these pages had some form of bright pink, which I found cheerful.

Next, I laid them out side by side and taped them together using double sided tape. (Since I ripped them from the magazines, I had to trim the edges so they would line up.)

Finally, I just used the newly formed single sheet and just wrapped a box like I normally would:

This was so simple y'all! It was fun and you can save some money by not having to purchase wrapping paper.

I also tried making a bow out of balled up ads:

I decided to wrap a small box in black and white ads as well:

This was such a fun project! I know I will be doing more of these in the future. Hope you guys have a great Tuesday and don't forget to like my facebook page!

Kim Kardashian's Tom Ford Federico sunglasses

I've been asked about the sunnies Kim wore in the airport last week. I finally found that they are the Tom Ford Federico sunglasses and you can get them here

Blazing Ahead

Zara blazer, F21 blouse, F21 shorts (similar style here), Michael Antonio wedges,
Tobi sunglasses

I'm loving these new pieces that I picked up a few weeks ago. The blouse is especially great because I got it for only $10. Who doesn't love a steal? The jersey blazer from Zara is so soft and comfortable. I know that it will be a staple piece in my closet. I couldn't find the exact color but I did find an off white version (also incredible) here.

As I might have mentioned before, the idea of wearing long sleeves with shorts used to bother me, but now it is something that I do quite often.

Get ready for an easy DIY project tomorrow that anyone can do! And if you haven't already done so, make sure you like my facebook page. Have a great week y'all!

What I got from Kim & Kourtney's ebay auction - April

I'm totally bummed today. First of all I got up at 4 to bid on some items from Kourtney and Kim's ebay auction, so I'm soo tired today. I got two things. The Smythe jacket and the Seven for All Mankind booties. YEAY.
I was bummed though that I didn't get to bid on the silk cape (because I fell asleep...) and the Haute Hippie dress, because someone bid over me in the last second. Don't you just hate it, when someone overbids you in the last minute?! Well, I'm happy with what I got. I just hope the shoes fit...The jacket I'm going to wear a lot I'm sure. I already have three other of Kim's jackets that I bought on one of her ebay auctions a couple of years ago.

Kim Kardashian out in NYC, April 21, 2012

Loving those Louboutins and the fringe top with the black waterfall blazer.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West out in NYC, April 21, 2012

There's a lot of speculation about these two, but I really don't care for that. It's their business. What I DO care about is Kim's outfit, which I LOVE. Again she's embrasing the sporty vs. chic look and it's my favorite trend of now. I really love that sweat. And those Louboutins - CUTE!
