Would You Wear This?

Fashion trends are so interesting.  Here are some common themes I've noticed with fashion trends:

-Ugly
-Comfortable
-Unique
-Blast from the past

Were leggings ever that "cute" to wear with a dress a few years ago?  Hmmm, at the time I thought I looked awesome running around NYC in my tunic dress or jean skirt paired with leggings.   As I sit on my couch right now-with my leggings on(it's 7am in CA), I cringe at the thought.

This picture is NOT of me.  I would at least wear a printed dress:)



My opinion is that anyone can pull off anything.   This is much better:

Here's a trend that I'm not sure I would personally ever partake in, but I think it's pretty cute and right in line with the Coachella and festival time of the year.  

Gold Leafs in the hair.  

I actually love when I see hair accessories, such a unique touch.

What about you?  Would you sport this trend?  What trends have you participated in the past that you are aren't so proud of?

How To Wear: Style Update

Hey there ladies and gents!  Are there any gentlemen reading out there?  If so, we're happy you're here, please stay!  Happy Friday!    

As the warmer months are approaching, new items are always acquired in the wardrobe.  I don't know about you but I don't want to spend a bunch of money on clothes, especially when my closet is over flowing already.  
1.  Pair a scarf with cut offs and a cute blouse you already have in your closet.  Pile on some bangles and you're ready to go!

2.  Buy one cute piece you really, really want that will go with multiple things.  I love buying a new printed kimono and I love adding blouses to my wardrobe.  I'll buy a variety that are cheaper and pricier, but I don't think I've ever bought anything over $100.  Before you purchase, really assess if this piece will work well with your wardrobe and how often you will wear it.  

3.  Make cut offs!  The ones in this picture are a little straggly and hand me downs from a friend, but I still love them.  If you have jeans or pants you don't wear too often, try making them into cut offs.  Remember to cut longer first then try on and see if you like how they look- you can always take away but you can't bring back the length-well unless your looking for a patched up look which might be fun.

4.  Play around with new silhouettes and buy pieces to reflect the new silhouettes in your wardrobe.  What does this mean?  If you usually wear skinny jeans and tight tops with cardigans, why not try a looser silhouette?  Try getting a loose drapey bohemian top and let it flow over your pants, and spice it up with a new sparkly heal or sandal.

What are you doing to update your look this spring?

What to wear this weekend

Ahhhh we are so close to the weekend...SOCLOSE!  What will you be wearing this weekend?  We're thinking something that ties this into a look:

Gold embellished strappy sandals with a printed scarf?  This is such an easy look and that anyone can wear. Pair these accessories with jeans, black pants, a skirt-anything goes!  Throw on some tortoise shades and your good to go.  

Hopefully your welcoming spring-ish weather this weekend wherever you are located.  The sun has been pretty good to us in California throughout the winter, but we are slowly welcoming longer days and warmer temperatures. We might be wearing this look sans a sweater in the next couple of days! 

Have a great weekend!!

FASHION 2 CENTS: ROCKING A COW PRINT

Wow, how can you not love animal prints?  Always and forever over here!  How do you feel about incorporating them in your weekly wardrobe options?  Animal prints can be a bit intimidating.  The key is to ease your way in, slowly but confidently.  ALWAYS wear something with confidence, don't wear it at all.  

Here are some tips for wearing leopard print.  But, what about a new print.  Say something you'd probably rather not be called by someone...





















COW PRINT!!! This print is great because it's black and white, so it can be worn in so many different ways.  One of the reasons leopard can be so tricky is because there's all those brown tones in it.  With a cow print, you can run with it and you can create so much variation.  Here are some options:

#1.  JEANS + CHARCOAL TOP + CONVERSE + THIS SCARF

#2.  BLACK CIGARETTE PANT + RED BLOUSE + THESE SHOES 


#3.  CAMOUFLAGE TOP + JEAN SHORTS + THIS ACCESSORY


Your turn!!  What do you think about cow print?  Are you wearing it?  Would you ever wear it? If so, how?
