Black or Grey

It is either black or grey. No matter how much we love colors, winter does that to our wardrobe. And we do love it, especially when the texture is what makes the items pop.  Wearing the iconic Adidas Stan Smith’s while throwing in some dash of color makes us feel like we are taking the tennis courts to the streets!

A Man’s World

Most of our wardrobe is full of pieces that originally belonged to men. The most fast-rising fashion success stories belong to men. And sometimes we even dress for them. Yet matching outfits and dressing up is an exclusive female pursuit. Mixing up odd items like sneakers, leather leggings and tuxedo-like-gilet reminds us that we can take anything we are given, and make it perfectly work.

Poncho Flashback

Growing up in South America is something. Tropical weather, Caribbean tides, and the infinite days of sunshine that make people smile, instantly. But some places are actually cold, so cold that they were home to winter garments like the Poncho. Since last fall, it has been invading the runways and people have adopted this typical Hispanic large sheet of fabric to keep themselves warm without risking comfort or movement. Just the perfect layering potential. Sun or no sun, we couldn’t be happier!

Power Tights

Tights have the beauty of turning almost any item into a winter wardrobe. Some shorts, skirts and even dresses are kept at hand in our closets because we simply know that they can be transformed as colder days approach. Colors are no exception and how refreshing it is to find that popping top that keeps out the cold while reminding us of the sunnier summer days.

Confidence with a C

We live in a world of excess. The more the merrier. The more the prettier. Yet confidence, as important as we all know it is, always falls short on our priorities and barely makes it to the list of must-haves, resolutions or even wish lists.

And then you hope to come across the possibility of having something transformed into exactly what you want, so that you are not only buying the next best dress but also confidence, the kind of confidence you get by knowing that something was just perfectly made about you and for you. Atelier C by Cherine Khadra is that kind of place where clothes are customized to your like while taking into consideration your silhouette, your preferences but most importantly your personality. Last week, we had the chance to meet Cherine and discover how she manages to combine fine textiles, tailored cuts and classic designs to create unique pieces as timeless as confidence should be.

   

An artsy diet pepsi with Atelier C special design was also presented for the first time at the event.

No Resolutions

Tomorrow is the last day of this year. We’ve had our share of beautiful moments and some others that did not make it to our page of love, where we only talk about what heightens our spirits. For everything, we are thankful. We will not make resolutions. We have discovered that the best things we have accomplished, we didn’t even know we were accomplishing. We won’t set goals and judge our selves upon completion. The world is already busy doing that on our behalf. We will only hope that like this outfit, we get to experience a year of harmony between the good and the not so good that is prone to happen. The dark instants and the pink moments, we will embrace it all and make it look like it perfectly works. Happy New Year!

‘Tis the Season to be Shopping

There’s an art to Christmas shopping.  So many gifts in so little time need some sort of preparation and inspiration! So to make things easier, we wanted to share a list of beautiful things that we have tried or encountered online or in events for the past few months.  It ranges from distinctive jewelry to amazing beauty products, to cool accessories and home decoration.  It’s the thought that counts so make them beautiful ones!

Failing to Fall

Just when we think fall has taken control, the sun starts shining so bright that wearing your favorite shade of yellow is not only allowed but also encouraged. Warm-mornings and cool-nights definitely call for a coat at hand and a dash of color that will never fail to wow.

Sweet Grunge

Even before sneakers were having a fashion moment, we were avid lovers of the trend and would wear them all week and weekend long. Now that it has become a statement we couldn’t be happier!! No need to drop your skater skirt or look like you are heading to the gym, just pair them together and enjoy a sports -luxe look!

Let’s Bow

A bow tie is to fashion what salt is to cooking, the ingredient that can make all the difference! It is by far the most versatile accessory you can have in your closet and no matter what shape or color you decide to wear, it will always pop up as the central piece of your outfit. We particularly love how the black leather skirt and denim shirt are tastefully harmonized by the magic of this black bow!
