Blue Dress in Tossed Hearts, Red Belt & White Shoes

  Sweet April showers do spring May flowers. Thomas Tusser.   It has been a while since I wrote my last blog post. Spring took me away spinning in the dance of its sounds, aromas and spirits. I have been doing lots of sports, mostly outdoor inline skating, and it made my Spring special. My go-to outfits became sports leggings, shorts, dri-fit tanks, long sleeve exercise tops, and sneakers. I enjoyed all things Spring could offer, and now is the time to share it all with you. So, when I finally took a small break from my outdoor...

Lace, Pearls and Taupe Booties

Lace, Pearls and Taupe Booties

“Lace – the invention of a goddess and the occupation of a queen.” Vinciolo.   Some fashion elements just never get boring. Lace and pearls – what can be more romantic and sensual? I paired a lace trim top with a pearl necklace, white jeans and taupe subtly embellished booties. The top is very versatile, and it adds a touch of elegance to a casual outfit. I also wore it with a skater skirt for a birthday party. Matching light brown hues with white is a pleasure in itself. This color combination is easy to perceive...

Inspiration from Nature: Red Cardinal vs Red Romper.

Inspiration from Nature: Red Cardinal vs Red Romper.

  “I’m very happy being me, although sometimes I’d love to be a bird so that I could fly”. Joy Fielding. Nature made it perfect: all creatures are wearing their own skins, furs or scales with fins. Except for humans. We cannot walk in our own skin. We love watching bright feathered birds, touching fluffy kittens and are amazed by the sleekness of dolphins when given a chance to touch them for the first time. Only human natural looks bring about a lot of controversy. It was not only about weather conditions that...

A Spoof on Graphic Tops.

Posted by on Aug 14, 2013 in Blog, Fashion, Featured | 0 comments

  “Good humor is one of the best articles of dress one can wear in society.” William Makepeace Thackeray. Nothings entertains me more than laughing. I can laugh at myself, I openly laugh at others if they don’t mind. When it comes to style and fashion, only bold people can apply humor to choosing their wardrobe. I sometimes would like to wear something provocative in a humorous way, but honestly, I am afraid to hurt other people. Nowadays with political correctness we are controlling ourselves so much that we think...

White Dress with Bright Accessories.

White Dress with Bright Accessories.

“The only rule is don’t be boring and dress cute wherever you go. Life is too short to blend in.” Paris Hilton. What girl has never been attracted to a white dress? The other question is whether she had courage to wear it! When I was seen in this immaculate white dress, I received a compliment that I had that courage! I rarely refuse adding some brightness to white clothes. I used to wear my white dress with rose gold shoes and a matching Michael Kors rose gold purse. For a classic look you may wear wooden or golden...

Unique Jewelry JÓIA by Yanira Ramirez.

“There is nothing new in art except talent.” Anton Chekhov. I would like to share with you my discovery of a talented jewelry maker, Yanira Ramirez. I met her at the local market in Wesley Chapel, and was impressed by her jewelry. She is a frequent vendor at St Pete Saturday Market throughout the Florida season (early October through late May). There are many talented craftsmen at local markets, and Yanira stood out of the crowd with her statement pieces. You might have sensed from my previous posts that I enjoy discovering local...

In the Rays of the Sun.

“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.” Helen Keller. Wearing bright colors often makes me feel good. I have a lot of bright tops and tees in my wardrobe. What can be better for summer? I paired this loose bright top with boyfriend vintage destroyed denim and high heels with spiked studs. For jewelry I chose a dark silver metal multi-strand cross charm necklace. Dark metal silver jewelry can go well with many colors of your clothes, so it is something to consider if you do not have one yet.    ...

Lounging in Red Wide Pants

“For those who are lost, there will always be cities that feel like home.” Simon Van Booy. I sometimes miss walking through the crowds typical of big cities. When we want to walk in Tampa Bay Area, we have a choice to walk in solitude around one’s community, drive to one of many beautiful beaches, like the one in St Pete, or to go to Downtown. Ybor City, a National Historic Landmark District in Tampa is one of such neighborhoods close to Downtown, where you can see people walking, not only driving. You can enjoy a lot of...

Adding Some Bloom to My Ears…

Earrings are an extension of your smile. Ahhh, what a wonderful life it is to see the blooming flowers and trees in May! Every fashionista would like to add some bloom to her wardrobe. With the latest trend, statement earrings, it is easy and affordable to do so. The choices are plenty! I could not resist either, and here is what I ended up with. I paired a white silk shirt with a printed pleat skirt, plus a yellow bright clutch to match yellow floral statement earrings. Since the color of the shirt is creamy white, I had to wear matching...

Floral Spring 2013.

Floral Spring 2013.

  You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming. Pablo Neruda.   This spring is just a few days away from being officially in. Some flowers are already blooming on the dresses, blouses, pants and shoes, thanks to this spring’s floral fashion trend. Spring is always special for me, as I was born in March. It is easy to please me with a simple bouquet of tulips on my Birthday. Most of all, I enjoy yellow flowers, and a combination of yellow and purple, like lilies and irises. I also love striking...
