Hello Spring!

Hey everyone it’s been a while! Hope 2017 has been great for all of you! Mine has been insanely eventful. Starting a brand new school as a Fashion Merchandising and Management major at Berkeley College in Manhattan, having surgical consults for both of my knees, and a million other adventures. It sure has been crazy. Here in New York we had a crazy heat wave back in February. I was wearing shorts! Now however we just got rid of our latest snow storm. So needless to say everyone’s happy about the warmer weather arriving.

Lately I’ve been all about changing up my hair. I’ve been trying out bold blues and greens lately. Greens and blues are all over Pantone’s colors for the season (check out my post on all of them! ) . It’s so interesting because I’ve never done crazy colors to my hair before and I’ve received so many compliments! (The majority were from some really awesome older people; shocking right!)

This season is all about lines. Whether they’re stripes, silhouettes, waist lines, or shoulder designs; almost none of what we see this season is symmetrical!

every season brings about new things for me to try and embrace. Stripes were never my thing. I feared the saying stripes make you look bigger. Knowing that’s not true in most cases I can’t wait to rock some of the new styles this season.

Your Ultimate Guide to Black Friday

Oh god it’s that time of year again! The hustle and bustle of people looking to buy gifts for loved ones and people they really don’t care about. Such a magical season of love turns into near murder scenes on the line at your favorite store as it gets closer to the holidays.

Every year we hear crazy stories about Black Friday, where people are getting trampled and killed, and camping out for over 24 hours before completely missing Thanksgiving with their family.

On the brighter side Black Friday is the one day a year where people are running around in search for those fabulous deals on must have and very needed products.

 

 

While you’re busy running around the stores keep in mind some things are definitely worth buying on this crazy day, while others should definitely be skipped.

WORTH IT:

Game systems are a huge hit for Holiday presents for kids. Whether they’re a PlayStation kid, or an Xbox fan Black Friday is definitely the time to purchase.

Other electronics are also majorly discounted on Black Friday, Apple runs major sales on their products, while always pushing the newest models there are also huge deals on older models where you can get a phone for almost nothing. Cell phones, SmartWatches, TV’s and other electronics are definitely worth the cash.

Nowadays not many people buy CD’s and DVD’s with the always accessible internet where they can stream almost anything they want instantly. However if you still love a hard copy of your music CD’s are a good choice to buy on Black Friday.

Has your oven crapped out months ago or your microwave broke the other day? Maybe you’re renovating or just really want a new fridge, appliances are definitely the top seller almost every Black Friday, a lot of people binge shop on things they want, but a place to cook and store your food that’s kinda necessary. No matter you story appliances should definitely be one of the first things you look at this year.

The last thing that’s totally worth spending your money on this Black Friday can’t be found in stores, however it can be found at your dream vacation spot. Numerous agencies, and websites (give a look on CyberMonday!) give major discounts for a million different vacations. After all of that shopping you’ll definitely need some time to relax.

 

SKIP IT

Toys are the biggest seller for young children every year during holiday season, new dolls, toy trucks, and other fad toys out there. Retailers know this and the deals you think you’re getting really aren’t as substantial as the rest of the deals out there, best bet on toys is to buy before the season even starts, or after (which kinda defeats the purpose)

Everyone gets roped into the clothes sales on Black Friday however small purchases like clothing really aren’t worth the money, winter essentials and accessories are also something you should definitely skip on your shopping spree, as many stores run big sales after the holiday season to generate more business, during this time there are usually a huge slow down for retailers not making a lot of money, this is definitely something to take advantage of because even after Christmas there’s still a lot left of the cold weather. So save that cash for that new 60″ flat screen you’ve been craving all year.

Spring 2017 Fashion Trends

 

A little brightness to think about in these freezing months approaching. Everyone loves Spring, the snow melts you don’t have to wear 15 layers and 4 pairs of socks to go to the bathroom it’s just a magical time. Here’s a little hope to look forward to looking great once the temperatures start rising again.

80’s Influence

The 80’s are back! I love the 80’s so many colors and amazing rock music, on the runways this year there were many metallic rompers and dresses, as well as super mini lengths, and sequins.

Bright Florals

It’s not Spring without pretty floral designed everything. Transitioning from the darker small fall flower into bigger brighter patterns covering everything from dresses to shoes.

 

Bride Inspired

Flowey dresses in white hues, sheer fabrics and lace are huge this season, in different styles, long and short.

Athleticwear

Athletic wear has been a huge craze for so long now and its becoming incorporated in so many different styles and is becoming such a norm with todays growing love of exercising and being health conscious. Black and white which was a huge trend this past Spring and its following us again for another round being worked in with athleticwear and more.

Color Combos: What’s HOT and what’s really NOT

So here we are again with a new palette to work with. This year we’ve had fabulous colors. Yet the hardest decision isn’t always what to wear. It’s after finding something and figuring out what to wear with it.

Pantone-Fall-2016.jpg

Luckily we have Pantone here to help us. These are the top colors used for F/W 2016. There’s the ever fabulous grey (Sharkskin), taupe and olive green (Lush Meadow) As well as some lovely earth tones and pastels which are still gaining popularity.

Learning to style these colors can be hard. However that’s what I’m here for. Keep scrolling and learn how to look fabulous all season long.

Grey has definitely been a fan favorite for years, and why not it’s neutrality makes it perfect to wear with almost anything. As you can see below

Mustard is also a fall favorite check out these color combinations

Olive Green is definitely one of the easier ones. It’s almost like it’s black it looks good with so much!olive collage.jpg

Finally we have the color of all fall colors burgundy. It’s gone by many names over the last few years but the love is all the same. burgundy-collage

However there are a lot of color combo’s to definitely avoid.

Keep colors in the same family tree. Earth tones work well together, but bright colors don’t. Avoid looking like a rainbow puked and keep some neutrals around to keep balance! Complimentary colors look great in some art but you definitely don’t want to wear the exact opposites. Like bright red and green will make you look like a walking Christmas display but burgundy and olive rock!
