SAG Awards Red Carpet Recap!

Tonight was another night of a red carpet event filled with well known celebrities and also some less known. Either way most of them really know how to kill it on the red carpet(probably thanks to their stylist.. or maybe they have a sense of fashion too). And just like with the Golden Globes, I now present to you my favorites of the night. Before I start I have to say that sometimes when you look at the coverage of the event on tv, some of the dresses look so gorgeous and perfect on the person, but when collecting pictures for a blog post, that same dress does not get photographed well and that is really sad.

And my favorites are.....

Fashion Trend/Statement #001: Bow Tie on Females

To be honest with you guys, I wasn't feeling this trend at all. But now I'm really digging bow ties as a way of accessorizing an outfit for females.

Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

This week I found myself looking at a lot of picture and footage of last year's Spring 2012 collections. I have to say that it is really hard or maybe even impossible to keep up with every single designer's runway show or presentation. But hey, if you're up for the challenge you can always try. I'm a huge fan of ready-to-wear collections. After looking at pictures of the Elie Saab Spring/Summer 2012 Collection (Paris), I decided to look up videos of the actual runway show... All I can say is that this show was Graciously Gracious!!

Nail Polish 101: Cherries In The Snow by Revlon

If you're really into nail polishes and you're dark skinned like me, often you come across this really amazing color, but it ends up not going well with your skin tone. I've had this dilemma for a while now with red-ish nail polishes. They end up being way to red for my skin tone or to bright. But a couple of weeks ago I was at a friend's house and I was trying a couple of her colors. Of course in order to see if the color really matches, you can't do just one nail, you'll have to do one hand full. I tried different colors until I came across the 270 Cherries In The Snow by Revlon. All I can say is: I'm hooked!! The following pictures are 100% true to the color.

Golden Globes Red Carpet Recap!

Today was the Golden Globes. Just like any other award show, I'm more interested in what everyone is wearing and how they look, shortly the red carpet event. Although most of the people walking the red carpet looked gorgeous, a few of them really stood out. Here follows pictures of my favorites of the night... Enjoy ;)

Favorite Fashion Creations #1: Hervé Léger by Max Azria!

We all have a list of expensive fashion items we dream of owning one day. Whether they are clothes, shoes, bags or sunglasses truth is most of us can not really afford them (yet).

For the past few months I've been really obsessed with bandage dresses from the Hervé Léger by Max Azria Collection. I don't know if it is the colors or the silhouette of the dresses, but truth is I love this collection. The colors are so bold, but still it doesn't take away the classy-ness of the dresses.

Here follows a brief history of the brand:

Celebrity Look Review: Fergie!

Hey dolls,

As I was telling you guys, one of my goals for this blog is to review celebrity looks and this is going to be my first time doing it. 

We are already entering the second week of the year, but I was looking at pictures of NYE parties and I couldn't help falling in love (although with mixed feelings) with the dress Fergie wore to the 1 Oak NYE Grand Opening in Vegas.
This dress is from Nicolas Jebran's Autumn Winter 11 Couture Collection. What I like most about it, is the mosaic details it has and how it shapes the body. I'm not a big fan of gold-ish anything, but the fact that she didn't over-do the dress with accessories was a major plus. She kept the gold theme going in a minimal way with the clutch combined with gold & silver shoes. 
Even though this dress looks pretty, I have my doubts about it being comfortable. But comfortable or not, Fergie looks A-mazing in it. What do you think about it?

Denim... And a pop of color (or not)!

Lately I've been really into denim shorts. I'm even turning a couple of old pair of jeans into shorts. Basically this look was inspired by the denim short. When wearing (really short) shorts, I always opt for a top that covers the majority of the upper body, like in this case with long sleeves if necessary. Having the upper body covered will make your outfit look classy instead of trashy. Looking for basic long sleeved shirt I found this denim shirt which was perfect!! The accessories just to make the outfit a little more Street Chic.

In the Spotlight: Nylon Magazine!

In November of 2011 I was traveling to the US, and one of the things I always do when I land there is buy me tons of magazines. It’s not that there are no magazines where I live, they are just (way) more expensive compared to the US price. For a couple of years already I’ve been a reader of Seventeen, Cosmopolitan and from time to time Vogue, Marie Claire & ELLE also.
I can’t remember how, but a couple of days before my flight I heard about Nylon Magazine and I decided I’ll buy the November issue (shown below) just to see what this magazine is all about. Well guys, I’ve been hooked ever since. I don’t know what it is about the magazine, but it is so different than other magazines I’ve been reading for the past years .What I like more about it is that even though it covers fashion and celebrities, it has this amazing down to earth feeling to it.
