Keeping it Basic

1 Apr

You know the same feeling you get when you buy a new purse, shoes or make-up, that’s goes for kitchen gadgets as well. I have been on a hunt for a silver tea stand and I finally found it at one of my favorite stores sur la table and this is what I wore while hunting for this gem. I also snagged some kitchen towels and the cutest porcelain strawberry basket. Anything to inspire me to keep my refrigerator clean and organized.

Happy Good Friday Lovelies

29 Mar

I hope most of you are off today and getting ready to start a nice weekend with the family. I saw the most amazing musical last night at the Music Hall down town Detroit, another hidden jewel in the D. The musical is called: The Cross and the Light, it was intense, empowering, and inspiring. The musical walked you through the final hours of Jesus Christ and his Resurrection what a great way to start this Easter weekend.

I am also glad to say that it’s finally starting to look like spring and I am looking forward to wearing spring and summer clothes in silk and chiffon soon. I am loving these flowy pretty pastels featured in InStyle. The accessories, and hair are kept subtle giving it an innocent yet romantic look, what are you loving this spring?

Until next time,

Spring is here, although it feels more like winter in Michigan. On a fashion note Bermuda shorts were big on the runway for spring 2013, will you be rocking the look?

I must admit they can be intimidating, but they are family friendly and perfect for the girl who is not into the cheek-baring cutoffs. Plus they are a nice alternative to a skirt. I am a fan of them and J.Crew has them in the best colors at great prices with some added stretch for comfort and flattering to the figure.

Or go for the black and white tuxedo look, like the last photo, you will get three trends in one, as we know by now that black and white is big this spring as are tuxedos, how can you go wrong with a black and white tuxedo?

Free People Starring Christopher Abbot

20 Mar

Have you seen the short film that embodies a short story taking place in the latest Free People catalog starring Christopher Abbot from the HBO series Girls and Spanish model Shelia Marquez?

Free People Presents “Roshambo” from FreePeople on Vimeo.

I guarantee will be seeing more of Christopher Abbot as he has proven he is very versatile as he stole the show in this short film.

Happy St. Paddy’s Day Weekend Beauties

15 Mar

St. Paddy’s Day always sets the mood for spring with its traditional green, and this year you should not have trouble finding something to wear in green as we all know by now that emerald has been proclaimed the color of the year according to pantone fashion. Try color-blocking in different shades to get the most of this vibrant color. Wearing spring colors may not help the weather get warmer, but it will definitely brighten your look, at least that is how I deal with the winter blues.

Hope you all have some great plans for this St. Paddy’s Day weekend. We have a couple of events, and we are hoping to sell some of our green jewelry, as that always adds a nice touch to your outfit if you don’t want to be as dramatic to wear green.

Until next time,
Monica

Lady in Pink

4 Mar

Four ways to redefine your look by keeping it polished and lady like, but with a contemporary take on it.

1. Smooth hair, whether straight or wavy.
2. Silk blouse or collared button down, preferably white.
3. Simple Black clutch.
4. Stilettos, preferably with little or no platform, or classic round toe like mine.

Take a peek….

Black White and Neon Yellow

27 Feb

My intention for my outfit posts on the blog is to keep track of what I have in my wardrobe so that I could get the best use out of it and only invest in essentials that I can wear from season to season which is why you see me styling my garments in different ways, like my favorite leggings which I also wore here.
