Hello Readers!

If your like me I really don’t really pay attention to trends; I used to spend hours glancing through glossy magazines trying my best to copy very trend I saw and in the end I was a Faşhion nightmare lol..So as I have grown I now am so comfortable with my style ( Kawaii, Candy coated, pastel, unicorn, horror movie, goth punk doll) I don’t really need trends as much as I used too. I will try something every now and then but my best “trends” have come from ME! I have stumbled across some new styles by just not having anything to wear like with the trend I am about to introduce you too..Wearing mini dresses over maxi dresses!

I couldn’t find any of my beloved leggings one day when the weather went crazy and went from 95 degrees to 57!( this is Nyc people!!) and I wanted to wear this black flows mini dress..I got so frustrated I yanked it off and put on a black flowy maxi dress on and put the mini back on over it..bam! Not only was I super comfy but It looked cool too! This I realized can work with any two dresses as long they are in the same silhouette ( think flowing dresses and body con dresses together) It especially looks good if u pair a sleeveless mini over a long sleeved maxi and just think in Summer with all those annoying strappy maxis you can throw a mini dress over that is sleeveless so you don’t have to worry what bra to wear! Below I have styled some looks for you and let me know what u think!

Hello readers,

I cant believe how fast January is leaving us; right around the corner is the sweetest holiday ever; Valentines Day! If your like me (a big ole sap who wears her heart on her sleeve) then you look forward to this day! Although I love watching my annual romantic movie fest (Original Sin is my all time fave); I  mostly look forward to scouring the web and stores for heart themed clothing and accessories to add to my vast clothing collection Because hearts can be worn everyday! You can choose in your face bold prints or more subtle hearts in a pattern that has a more abstract look; you can mix prints or wear a solid with it.. I have put together some outfit inspiration and in my next post I will cover accessories to go with these looks! Enjoy!

Oh does not own a jean jacket and now the darling of Americana fashion has been launched into other locations. Even men in London fashion week dorned the iconic piece. This year, the most unisex jacket got a make-under with distressed features such as paint splatter, and the usual features you see on the pant variety. FOR GUYS Look for military elements such belts, buckles and buttons as well as lighter colors and even longer lengths. In some cases, the jacket has become a full coat as seen in the above picture from White Mountain. FOR WOMEN Look for exaggerated details like full sleeves, cropped cuts and darker washes this season. We can also see the coat variety for women as well with the only difference being it is not as sport inspired and slightly longer. So another couple outfit from TFG. Yvette Estime

Hello readers,

I have seen so many trends dieing and coming back ( looking at you 90s everything) and that’s cool but what about alternative clothing trends? I have noticed that new Faşhion trends always pop up( mostly starting in Japan) but these trends have staying power ( Lolita and fairy kei are examples). So I was pleasantly surprised when recently Pixie Locks ( Jillian) came up with Partykei; in which she combined glitter, faux fur and party wear and it’s been gaining momentum ( per her facebook group page Party kei that has over 2500 members) so I thought to myself what does everyone already own that I can make a trend out of that would have staying power?.Pajamas or Lounge wear?! So I combined Kei ( system or style in Japanese) with Pajama..Pajama kei

Pajama Kei wardrobe can be cute; think fuzzy onesies, velour sweatshirts and sweatpants. Or sexy; think negligees that aren’t too see through, frilly night gowns, slip dresses and silk or satin pj sets. All accessories for Pajama Kei should include sleep masks worn ascew on the head like a headband, slippers with rubber soles ( so you can wear them outside), fluffy or feathery scrunchies, jewelry & handbags, stuffed animal backpacks and purses held in your arms like your going to sleep. The best part about my trend is there is no set color palette! You don’t have to worry about colors cuz you can find pajamas in any color palette you like; you can stick to pastels, black or go crazy rainbow neon.the sky’s the limit! Let me know if you would try this trend and I have included some outfit examples..

 

 

I know it is hard to think about spring with today’s icy forecast and if you are here in NYC, the misty rain, but fashion always shoulders foward.

So today we focus on too looks that were once not day time wear but all as changed as this Spring is all about rule breaking. We are talking about sequin and sheer clothing.

I always loved sheers and the new play on ruffles and light colors makes it easy for you to add it to your wardrobe. Here are some tips on utilizing the trend based on comfort level:

Level 1: Shy – Throw a shirt over and leggings underneath to just have enough sheer peek through.

Level 2: Lady – Okay, you want to show some stuff but leave a little to imagination. Wear a dress slightly shorter underneath and leave legs bare.

Level 3: Confident and Cautious – A simple slip underneath that is slightly sheer itself would make it more adventurous.

Level 4: Feminist – i.e. yes I am almost naked and you have no right steer. I love the idea of a lace bodysuit under sheers or a fancy bra and panty set. In the picture above, the model wears a bodysuit.

Slay all friyay,

We all heard the white pants suit resurfacing as the go to outfit for easy effortless boss bitch but alot more adventurous items have made it into 2018. Yep, we are talking about the 3 patterns of this year and how to wear them.

POPPY PRINTS

Artistic vibes inspired patterns are all the range this year with adverse colors thrown together in a somewhat advant garde way. Think pink and orange, green and blue as well as yellow and purple just to name a few.

OUTFIT TIP: A full on dress or jacket (for men) will really make you stand out but for a more subtle look try a bottom in the print and pair with a bright color or netural hued top.

VINTAGE FLORALS

This 70’s print is back in full force and we love the neural colors mixed with brights colors, making it the easiest pattern to add to your wardrobe.

OUTFIT TIP: This print is best worn long, think maxi skirts and dresses.

BLACK N WHITE

Two neutral colors in one pattern means effortless glam! The way these colors are intertwined thos year goes beyond stripes and polka dots for a more emersive pattern as seen in ss 2018 Balmain collection (above).

OUTFIT TIPS: Go beyond stripes and dots for advanr garde, pop culture or newsprint themed prints. Pair with Vegan Leather accents for a tough girl look!!

Happy Fri-yay!!

Hello readers

Winter is finally upon us and all though coats can be bulky and unflattering; I am happy to say that this year the staple every woman needs; the puffer coat/jacket has seen an update! I have noticed slimmer fit, less bulkiness and new finishes and colors. I really love the new metallic finish I saw all over the runways this past February at New York Faşhion Wk. The Winters are brutal in New York and I often find myself traipsing threw blizzards in the name of Faşhion; so it’s nice to have a stylish coat to keep me from turning into a popsicle..I do however have to find this style in a plus size version as I previously wrote about.  I tried to keep my finds under $230 as coats can be expensive and it’s nice to have multiple options as I own several styles for different temps and my Andrew Marc puffer coat is on her last trip before she heads to Poshmark.. (on a side note if you want to see what I wear and get a chance to buy it my Poshmark account is Evadivacutie and if you use my code which is also my user name you can get $5 off your first purchase and right now my closet is 30% off bundles!) ok so below are my fave picks! Enjoy and let us know if you chose any of the coats I picked!

 

hello readers

Its finally the time of year for that frosty bite to the air! I love this time of year the most and relish the chance to update my coat and jacket choices. I do own a collection of faux fur jackets and coats (10 and counting…don’t judge me!) but I am always looking for warmer and eye catching designs. This year saw faux fur patterns in bolder and much more vibrant colors. I love faux fur for its versatility( you can wear over just about any clothing combo you can think of ; or leave it as your statement piece) and for how easy to care for it is (real fur is a nightmare to keep clean). I have scoured the internet to bring you my fave picks hopefully you find something you love!

 

 

We can safely say that florals, sheers and artfully place cutouts have been the basic go-to designs for Spring for so long they are no longer a trend. So what is new? Based on the sign of the times, here are 3 trends we think will crop up at NYFW in the coming 2 weeks!! 

Colored Camouflage 

Everytime war seems on the horizon, camouflage comes back into the limelight. We sense that designers will switch it up by changing the green and brown hue to a kaleidoscope of color combinations and of course, add it to their Spring lineup.

Metallics

Opulent looks are so Fall but we think lame and other light weight shimmer and shine enducing fabrics will be on display this season. The love of the 70’s, the decade of rebellion as paired with our own return to public protest will be the catalyst for this trend.

Embellished Denim

Okay, it is no secret we Americans love jeans but the rip and torn trend may be replaced with a more opulent preference like sequin, embriodery or patches. We even may see some punk elements like studs and chain motifs. As Millenials get older, they still want to be youthful but want to appear more thoughtful on what they actually wear.

This has been a long week and so far we have 8 shows in the pipeline with 2 weeks left for invites. We are watching our inboxes!

Happy Friyay!!
