Black & White & Gone

Black and white photos, to me, have always been the most beautiful. There is something about nothing that gives me the chills and forces me to keep looking. Singer Sky Ferreira was featured on Elle in her own "pretty gone crazy" style that's making me go crazy. To be honest, I just watched a youtube video of her and she isn't that attractive. But her style really bumps her up a few notches.

The issue with shopping in the States is that you are truly limited to what is in style. I remember for a long period I was unable to go shopping because my style was not what was "in".

That is all changing this summer! Say hello to nude!

I love nude/brown because of how simple and organic the colors make your outfit. As much as I love beautiful clothes I still believe that clothes should NOT hide who you are but enhance what you are all about. Nude has always been put down because of nude "does not have a personality".

Quite to contrary, nude is elegant, simply, sexy, and timeless because it mimics being bare. That bareness allows you to express yourself instead of transforming you into a moving clothing rack.

This kind of sexy

White + flowers + drugged out= my favorite look

I have never been one to follow rules but I am definitely not a bad ass either. For me, seeing this simple, elegant, girly look tranformed into a sexy good girl gone crazy look is so mysterious.

Say yes to the pretty white dress and with black eye make up, bed hair with mousse, and dark nail polish.

I know what I love in fashion but I don't know anything more. So I did some googling work and found that I am obsessed with trends originating in the 50's. Although the styles might not be "super in" there are designers who also believe in high waste lines with natural flowing skirts. In the same decade, the hobble skirt was made more skin tight and inches shorter, creating the sexy pencil skirt.

I believe that it is important for me to identify what styles I am naturally drawn to. I want to resist confirming into what is fashionable and sticking with the style that I LOVE.

Inspired by Betty

This French fashion blogger, Betty inspires me. Not that I adore her style but her passion. In writing this blog, I can find myself trying to "be" like other fashion bloggers and like what other fashion bloggers like. Truthfully, I love the top on her but I don't love the top. To much "bling" on a shirt is gaudy and overwhelming. But reading her blog inspires me to believe in what I love & not to try to be someone else.

Tiny II

A personal note.

I titled my post about small purses as "Tiny" which is funny because that is how I am feeling about this blog and myself. I've spent the last few hours reading, admiring, and jealousing (aka hating) on the many established and amazing fashion bloggers. How can I compete with such greatness?

Self doubt always encourages passion- the secret ingredient missing in my blog. Can't you taste how bland it is?

Heres a bit of passion for a long time ago

Why hello sexy small bag. Thank you for entering my life again!

We used to love big purses because
1. we were told to love it
2. they were big and literally contained everything we owned

We now all LOVE SMALL purses because
1. no more shoulder bruising and dislocation
2. its just a really really big wallet that holds your phone & camera
3. who doesn't want to look like Nataliia (featured sexy model)?

Simply simple

The most attractive quality any girl can have is self confidence. Nothing screams 'I am beautiful' more than dressing casually. Mathilde Franchon was featured last week on Vogue's blog and she caught my eye because everything about her screams confidence. There is nothing sexier than a girl who can just wake up in the morning, throw on a loose shirt with a pair of simple jeans and sandals and look stunning. She does not over accessorize or wear too much make up. She is the essence of model perfection.

Black will always be the new black and I am IN LOVE with the prim and proper little black dress. And it seem that no one is doing it better than Giambattista Valli. Ester Adams from Vogue says that "Giambattista Valli is one of those designers who likes a woman to dress like a woman an unreconstructed, pre-sexual revolution, prim and proper vision but updated to resonate in the 21st century".
And who can argue with elegance with a hint of sexuality?

So you can imagine my excitement when I found this from PinkIce. For those of us who can not afford a Giambattista Valli dress, this piece gives me the same elegant, delicate, yet sexy modern feel. I like that the dress comes in at the waist line yet it still flows naturally. This is a practical and affordable approach to contemporary prim and proper.
