Make up : Contrast




Hi

I hope you're all enjoying this gloomy dark Sunday... Anyhow it's getting cold outside.. thus it's becoming hard to take pictures outside... I have to come up with something... but DO NOT worry genius Nelly will figure it out :)

so I did this makeup... will lots of blue glitter on my eyes and red lip stick... very simple to do...
I love make up because you can either go simple or super crazy... and I find that you can be whoever you want....it's almost like acting out...

so I used Lise Watier make up for my eyes and for my lips I use red Inglot

and obviously the typical... foundation... blush and eye brow master!!!

Look of the day: Gold Neck






Hello
Happy Wednesday... we are in the middle of the week almost halfway towards the weekend!!!

So these pictures were taken this past weekend and they were really unprepared and spontaneous... sometimes pictures that are taken without any precise thought come out being the most fabulous pictures... but not all the time :).... these ones are not that bad...

For that day I did a lot of layering and I felt like wearing a hat...I love this hat not only because it's an Italian vintage hat but also because it's very comfortable and casual.

I also wore of one my most recent purchases which is this beautiful gold necklace...I like that it's simple but it completes an outfit

HAT: Borselino
JACKET: Danier Leather
VEST: GAP
TOP: Birds of North America
PANTS: Mango
BOOTS: Blondo
NECKLACE: H&M

look book: Blue chic






So this is my first LOOK BOOK
basically this consist of a small photo shoot that I do with a close friend, family member or people I know
that have good taste for fashion...(very different from street look which are complete strangers...)

As for my first time I took my cousin...
She was wearing a very nice bleu marine mid length wool trench coat...
it had nice ruffles on the side and she was wearing it simply with a nice pair of leggings and high boots

what I like about this look is that with only one main focal point she created a very nice casual chic look...
I know I repeat myself but I will never get tired of saying that simplicity is hard to obtain but beautiful...

so don't try too hard to be fashionable... because simple is always good

COAT: french connection
BOOTS: lacoste

Look of the day: leaf me up






Hey!!!

So this week I wanted to do something with the fall theme OBVIOUSLY!... I wanted lots of leaves and lots of trees...

I love this season because it's cold enough to wear a nice light coat but not too cold for you to freeze your butt out :) I really love layering... I think it's part of the season and the best of it is that you can show it off... versus winter we are all covered underneath our big coats ...

I like to be very simple with what I wear... and always feel comfortable...
I really love this coat because it has a rocker style but it has the softness of genuine leather suede..
so it counter balances :)

Coat: Danier Leather
sweater : GAP
pants: GRG
Boots: Blondo

and this beautiful purse

Look of the day: Faux Fur...




This season FAUX FUR is totally IN...
I love faux fur... because you can look chic without the whole idea of actually torturing and killing animals for their furs...

I always believe in the idea of looking chic without paying the whole price... I think looking elegant shouldn't be draining out your account...I don't believe in the idea of buying designer's clothes to be in fashion...
I bought this piece at Vera Moda and for this type of vest it was very affordable...

Vest: Vera moda
tights: Change
Boots: Aldo
Bracelet: Jacob
