She breaks out of her shell


Man! I’m lovin’ her shorts, her belt, her blouse… All in one package! And one thing I like about this look is she looks effortlessly cute!  She said to me one time that;

  • If you want to spice up your daily fashion then you need to find out what that style is.
  • Change up your look without completely changing your style, use accessories.  
  • Don’t be afraid of anything just because you’re shy. Plain simple is boring sometimes. 
  • Whatever style you like, wear it! You can change your style to whatever you want.
  • Test out different styles in fashion. But in the end, it all depends on how you carry yourself, on how you feel when you dress. If you feel good and confident in your wardrobes then you have the perfect ensemble on! Just don’t forget to wear your heart to complete the look.

These are just a ‘’few’’ tips I’ve got from this gal Gigi. I find my cousin a very good example of a classy type of persona. A simple yet elegant fashionista.

xoxo

My 2013 spring outfit


IMG_20130419_131850DSCN1017DSCN1019DSCN1046IMG_20130419_131441IMG_20130419_132122DSCN1021Spring is finally here in full potency and today has been the most exceedingly beautiful weather for us here in Tx. With 63 °F high, I said WOW! This will be a great time for me to experiment. I know I had to get away from wearing a lot of dark colors every day, so anything that will brighten up my wardrobe for spring and summer,  like bright colors, florals, stripes and patterns  never go out of style.  So, I pull out some of my favorite spring pieces that I have in my closet. I like to mix and match! And today, I wear my Elegant Light Pink Chiffon  Long Beach Dress and I accessorized my head with scarf that matches my belt and footwear. With this combination, I looked fairly nice today. For my kataladz out there, I have tips on matching your clothes.  First, find colors that look good on you, any pastel colored flats will work like pink, light blue with skinny jeans and anything  florals. And boots are fun too! Black and white outfits are also very springy this season so you might as well choose these types of shades. With clothes you’ve already got in your closets, you can look to see if a top and bottom have a certain color in common. So pull ‘em up and try ‘em on!

Essence Stay All Day Long-Lasting Eyeshadows


W H A T T I N A L O V E S

IMG_1981When I was done hoarding the eyeliners and lip liners (soon!) from Essence, I looked around for other stuff but aside from the liners, these cream eyeshadows caught my eye. I’m still very much into anything cream and it won’t go away anytime soon. However, affordable drugstore cream eyeshadows are so rare or don’t exist here. Maybelline counters here don’t carry the Eye Studio Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadows and I haven’t checked if L’Oreal counters sell the Infallible Shadows. You have to get it from online sellers at a premium. I haven’t even seen a local brand carry one too. Very odd.

01 Coppy Right – metallic taupe-brown

09 For Fairies – metallic pink

I couldn’t find this product in their website. I’m not sure if they discontinued it or what. I noticed that Essence change their colors every so often and you hardly have the same shades per collection…

Designer´s Monday // Anthropologie


kjandersen

Hello lovely and sunny Monday!

I have taken my Mac outside now to soak in the spring sun. With the appropriate attire, meaning a scarf and a thick jacket it feels more like summer.

Alongside my wonderful Sonas Denim offer, click here,I felt a longing for Anthropologie. 

This black maxi dress is on my wish list. I imagine myself away on some beach resort taking a stroll with it.

If you could pick one place, where would you travel?
