The Perfect Wrapping

13 Dec

Yep.  It’s that time of year ladies and gents.  This is one thing I love about winter time, scarves.  Not only does it keep you cozy and warm but it decorates the “tree” it’s on – you!  Even though I am in the land of stars and sun this holiday, it’s no excuse to leave out the essentials for the season.   If I can’t find an accessory piece to throw around my neck, the next best thing would have to be my scarves.  An impressive thing about scarves; they can be used for different variations of style.  For instance, head wraps, shaw-like covers, etc.  Make sure your wardrobe has the winter’s favorite and express yourself in many ways you see fit to wrap!

Gold Rush

26 Oct

Gold, gold and more gold!  The 2013 RTW (accessories) Paris fashion shows were topped up to the brim with gold accessories.  From earrings to handbags, and handbags to shoes, gold was definitely in stock.

Aurelie Bidermann makes me want to dress up like a royal Greek Goddess this Halloween!  Can you picture it? A head full of gold.  Yes, I can definitely picture it.  Aurelie Bidermann?  You mean, King Midas.  Because this season is all about turning things into gold.

Eddie Borgo has the capacity and eye when it comes to making engaging and alluring pieces.  Borgo’s  pieces are bold and alive with geometry.  I can see it now.  A whole raiment built around a rubik’s cube shaped necklace.  Nothing screams BOLD like having blocks around ones neck.

LANVIN!  Ah, my favorite.  On point I see…once again.  These handbags have to be my favorite, I must say.  OK, OK, I am a tad biased but can you blame me?  Each piece from his accessory line makes a statement in and of itself.  With these pieces, there is no need to dress up…you dress DOWN!  You make Lanvin front and center.  You are a canvas and Lanvin is your painter.  Pose.

Oh, Mr. McQueen.  It is never a dull moment when surfing through his collections.  Pure insanity, illusion and radical thoughts within his lines.  GENIUS.  A designer that needs no intro, for his pieces speak for himself.  A magnificent knuckle clutch that puts the badass in cute is something every girl with a little hint of daring needs.

The epitome of fine tailoring and structure, I present to you, Yves Saint Laurent.  With the simplicity of well crafted art, Laurent knows how to keep things elegant with a slight edge.  What’s so great about all four elements? You are able to group them together without going over board. Keep true to the Saint and paint yourself with the basics while piling on all the necessities!
