Daytime Leather

Leather in the summer? No way. Fashion is not about breaking the rules. It’s about bending them to your advantage. If you have the urge to wear leather in the summer, do it! IFB’s Project# 106 inspired this post.

There is something alluring and badass about leather. I remember fantasizing about wearing a leather outfit in my Buffy days (see photo below) but I couldn’t pull it off cause I’m a “nice girl”. The look below changed my mind. There is an appropriate way to wear leather without feeling like you are wearing a costume and I am going to tell you how.

Rules for leather (in the summer):
1. Keep it classy, boo. Balance out the sexy aspect of leather with a casual piece. A chunky sweater works well in the Autumn. In the summer you want to turn to your favorite white tee. If you are showing your legs in a skirt or shorts, a simple top will keep the look classy. If you are wearing a leather peplum top then wearing a silky skirt will tone down the biker chick vibe. Unless that’s what you are going fo 😉

2. Color. Color. Color. Black leather can be a bit harsh for daytime. Trying mustard yellow or green gives leather a fun twist. If you are going the color route, don’t forget to keep accessories simple. You want your leather piece to be the focal point of your outfit.

3. Confidence is key. Leave the doubts at home and rock your leather outfit. You deserve to shine! If leather clothes is too much then start off with accessories!

Style Crush of the Week: Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba’s style can usually be described as bohemian chic. She wears the heck out of maxi skirts and never looks frumpy. I can’t remember the last time I wore a maxi skirt. This look is perfect for Spring. Carry a chunky sweater for the early morning breeze and chilly nights.

I’ve been a fan of Katie since her Dawson’s Creek days. I still can’t believe she ended up with Tom Cruise but that’s another story…Here, Katie is the epitome of cozy chic. I adore her long, navy coat and classic Dolce and Gabbana purse. I was never a fan of turtlenecks because they make me feel constricted. But here, I like the idea of being able to leave the coat open without risk of catching a cold. I’m going to start combining these neutral colors more often. Navy and Brown are classic but not boring.

It’s been freezing in New York lately.  I don’t usually wear jeans during the week so the weekend is a good opportunity to take out the basics.  This is my ideal weekend outfit for keeping warm in a chilly city.  I’m going shopping today so I need comfy boots and a warm coat.  A messenger bag is perfect for when I’m carrying lots of shopping bags.  I have a strict list in mind so I don’t spend unnecessarily.  =)
Have a good weekend!

Hello everyone!  I’m not dressing up for Halloween this year.  However, this would be my costume if I was going to.  I’ve always wanted to dress up as a Flapper.  Maybe because of this Charmed episode.  There’s something fun about dressing up as anything you want for a day and not worrying about being judged because it’s the norm for Halloween.  Have fun and experiment! =)

This sweater is great because you can wear it anywhere and look chic.  I love how grey goes well with every color.  Most of my wardrobe used to consist of grey and black mostly.  I guess it was because they go with everything.  It is now that I am incorporating more color into my closet.  Color is fun and a great way to experiment and create your own style.

Purple and mustard

I am loving this color combo.  Wendy Nguyen has great style.  Her looks are always fresh and polished.  Purple is my favorite color so this is a combo I need to try soon.
