Trendsetter Go-getter: Photo Prints

2 Jun

Graphic tees aren’t anything new. We’re pretty sure you have at least one in your closet. This season, let’s give it a little twist. Most photo print tees incorporate fashion photos as their print, some designers use landscapes, art, sceneries, and also animals as the main design of their pieces.


TIP: If your print is loud enough, keep the accessories and other details of your outfit to a minimum. Photo prints usually look nice if paired with any black bottom or blazer. If you’re feeling experimental, try to mix and match with another color of your bottoms also present in the print of your tee.

Trendsetter Go-getter: Mustache Mania

20 May

Everywhere I go, everywhere I look, I always see people wearing mustache-inspired accessories and clothes so I decided to buy different items with mustache and take pictures of them to share with you! If ever you’re wondering where I got these very awesome and cute items, I bought them from Claire’s! 🙂

“I mustache (must ask) you a question.” I so love the statement in this iPhone 4/4s case!

This necklace has the most adorable charm. It’s a mustache-in-a-bottle charm!

A mustache detail adds a bit of fun to this mug. Take a sip for a silly look.

In need for a disguise? You can go undercover anytime with this cool necklace.

Is it a mustache or a necklace? It’s better than that. It’s both! Whether you’re look for the day is edgy or glam, you’re definitely gonna stand out!

It’s a classic comedy disguise for a cute nerd, complete with mustache. Wear these funny frames for a few good laughs.

Fashion Face-off

Sporting tousled waves, Emmy Rossum looked sensational wearing a Cynthia Rowley Spring 2012 dress on the ‘Conan’ show back in January when she promoted the 2nd season of ‘Shameless’. She wore the white lattice dress with a pair of electric blue pumps which added a pop of color to her fresh look.

Ariel Winter wore the same dress to the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards last month. The ‘Modern Family’ actress, who opted for a side-swept ponytail, looked super cute, but she let herself down by teaming her white dress with black Aldo wedges. Who do you think wore it better: Emmy or Ariel?

Oh My DIY: Denim + Lace Shirt

17 May

This season we’ve been loving demin mixed with lace! We decided to give this trend a try with a cute DIY top! Here’s how:

What you’ll need:

  • Denim or chambray button-up shirt
  • Lace
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Sewing pins

Steps:

  1. Cut out the back of the shirt. You’ll want to leave about 1/2 inch from the seam so that you can stitch the lace directly on the seam line.
  2. Using the back of the shirt as a pattern, cut out a new back in lace.
  3. Next, turn the shirt inside out, pin the lace where the original back was, and sew into place. Because you left a 1/2 inch of fabric, it’ll be easier for you to sew it to where the seams are in the inside.
  4. Once you’ve sewn it in place, hem the bottom of the lace.
  5. All done! The stitching shouldn’t be showing and will line up with the original seam!

Tip: Go slow and sew/pin each turn one at a time. This helps to keep the lines crisp!

Trendsetter Go-getter: Flatforms

17 May

“Huh? What on Earth are flatforms?”  They aren’t your typical platform heels that make you wonder how people could balance on them. Flatforms are more conventional since the heels on these comfy shoes are flat that can save you from all those “Oops!” moments trying to stand on sky-high heels. To all the girls out there having a hard time with heels, these are your ultimate lifesavers!

Wear them on a casual day running errands, or use it to pair your new LBD (Little Black Dress) for a semi-formal event. Flatforms are very versatile. Some of these shoes even have different patterns for the heels! Never get scared to sport this new trend!
