One of the greatest things that came from graduating college into a recession is it forced many of us to pursue our creative dreams from the get go. There weren’t many jobs, so we created our own. What I’ve seen along the way though are a lot of entrepreneurs who want success and want to take short cuts to get there. If there is one thing that I’ve learned in the last 6 years is that, there are no shortcuts to success.
Happy Friday! We spotted these beautiful pieces that are perfect for Spring 2018. We are lusting over clean geometric lines, soft fabrics, and loose fits for everything. Let us know in the comments how you would style these pieces! Would you match any of these together? Or have a piece in your wardrobe that would look great with something below? We want to hear how you like to mix and match.
Feel free to use this list to create your own style guide for spring! Link back to this page so we can see your ideas and styles as well.
Last year during New York Fashion Week, we saw a ton of cropped sweatshirts and sweaters coming down the runway. Take a look at how GCDC did the trend! Spring is finally around the corner where we can rock this new look. I’ve actually have been wearing cropped sweaters most of the winter paired with high waisted jeans. They are cute, fun, and give a flattering shape to the body when styled the right way. You don’t need to go super short if you don’t want to show your midriff. You can always go with high waisted skirts and pants to gap the difference and make the entire look super chic.
With the first really beautiful day of the new year, we can’t help but to dream about warmer weather and wearing the latest Spring Trends. Here is what will be popular this season with a few pieces from Revolve to demonstrate. I hope you enjoy! Let me know in the comments what trend you are most excited to rock this Spring.
DESIGNER STELLA NOLASCO RETURNED TO NEW YORK FASHION WEEK, IN SUPPORT OF PUERTO RICO AND WITH A MESSAGE OF EQUALITY
Fashion, feminism, and politics have always been heated territory. This year, amidst political upheaval, social strife, and natural devastation (globally, but also locally on the sunny Island of Puerto Rico) perhaps we can say that Mother Nature and Women have had it. For 2018, Stella wishes to highlight the one positive movement which has been gaining much strength: the new wave of women’s rights. Stella’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection aims to give power to the phrase “FEMINIST BUT FEMININE.”
A hobby of mine is casually browse Asos and making dream wishlists. This season, Asos is coming in strong with some of the most beautiful Spring pieces. From new satin Puma Shoes, to cute one pieces for that so needed getaway. I’ve even spotted the latest Spring trend, Color Blocking, in a multiple of cool sweatshirts. There are incredible jaw-dropping dresses to be worn for date night or a cocktail reception. Have any weddings to attend? There are even a few accessories to help you look your best. Want to recreate that infamous Kylie Jenner over-sized striped shirt look? There is even a nearly identical match below.
Take a look for yourself and let me know which ones are your favorite:
You know I am a sucker for a great purse. Especially ones that stray away from the expected. Currently, color block bags are trending and I am obsessed! These timeless yet fun designs are a great way to add a bit of excitement into your daily outfit. Choose a design with a pop of color, or stay monotone with neutrals. Designers such as Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, and even J. Crew are playing with the color block bag trend. Meaning there is a piece for everyone within everyone’s budget.
“We can all make a difference. We need to work hard. Believe in ourselves, never give up and take those opportunities for growth and change…”
Last week I attended the ECOSOC Youth Forum at the United Nations. ECOSOC stands for The Economic and Social Council at the UN where members from around the world come together to discuss innovative sustainability solutions, policy changes, and development goals.
The Youth Forum strives to “brings the voice of youth into the discussion of the Millennium Development Goals and post-2015 development agenda”- UN.org. One way in which they are striving to do this is through the 17 SDGs.
New York Fashion Week is notoriously fast-paced, and offers an abundance of opportunities to shoot compelling photos. Capturing the essence of Fashion Week can be tricky, but I’ve mastered a few foolproof ways to get those perfect shots with the help of Google’s Pixel 2. Here’s how I capture runway trends, backstage beauty, street style, and everything in between.
