Be Bold And Rock A Red Dress

Image
Red is one of those saturated colors that has a polarizing effect on people. It is the kind of color that can draw you in or have the total opposite effect and can be intimidating. I have always been drawn to the color when it comes to my art. I use a variation of the color in almost every single painting that I create but when it comes to wearing the color it has been a difficult journey to navigate. It took me until I was well into my thirties before I could even take the small step of wearing red lipstick for the first time but after finding the perfect shade for me it has become one of the lipsticks that I wear often. When it comes to wearing red clothing I have found that for me it is easier to rock a red dress instead of separates. Why? It is so much easier for me because I do not have to worry about trying to match shades and with a dress, I do not have that issue. So today, I am showcasing a few of my favorite red dresses this season.

Hollywood and Fashion Style Stars - Best Dressed 8/15/2018

Image
Okay, okay, okay!!! I know I haven't done one of these roundups in months but I think starting today I am going to try to feature my favorite Hollywood and fashion style stars on a more regular basis. I love to get inspired by what celebs and fashion insiders are wearing because they usually have access to clothing, brands, and designers that we average folks do not usually get a chance to see or wear. Sometimes it inspires me to save up for a lust worthy item and other times it sparks my creativity and I find a similar look for a whole lot cheaper. This week's ladies are showing us a variety of ways to make a look your own.










Birthday

Image
It's official I am 39 years old today. OMG ... 39? I still feel like a kid who is playing around at adulting but from what I hear from older folks you never outgrow that feeling. Honestly, I don't feel that I have changed much in the last year except that I am closer to 40 now. For some reason I feel like 40 will be the more monumental year than this year but who knows. Have I learned much over this past year? Not really, I guess I'm still trying to find out where's Waldo but I have been on that mission since I was 7 (I will keep you updated on my progress). I usually do a more profound post on my birthday but today I woke up and wasn't on that vibe, so I am going to be answering an assortment of random questions I have received over the years on my birthday.



Q:Do you feel any wiser? A: Nopeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! 
Q:Keke do you love me? A: Ummm ... I think you have the wrong girl but now you got me in my feelings. 
Q: More shots? A: Of course because I'm a f*cking lady.…

The Best Color Block Summer Accessories For Men & Women

Image
Color blocking is often described as taking opposites on the color wheel and pairing them together to make interesting color combinations. The most famous case of this is the artist Piet Mondrian's work featuring a color block pattern of red, white, blue, yellow, and black. Several decades later, fashion legend Yves Saint Laurent designed an iconic collection referencing Mondrian's work during the 1960s.



Fast forward to current times and the color block trend has come back in full force. A lot of designers have been referencing the iconic pattern in their collections for the past few seasons with a modern spin. Instead of just using opposing colors they are also now using hues from the same color family showcasing a softer take on the trend. 
Today I am featuring some of my favorite color block accessories for men and women. Why accessories? Personally, I have always felt that the easiest way to try out a bold trend is through accessories. Once you feel comfortable with that …

Giorgio Armani Showcases Classics With A Twist With His SS/2018 Collection

Image
Giorgio Armani is one of those designers and brands that are well known all across the world. He is most famous for his classic designs with a nod to the past. Any man who buys one of his suits knows how good of an investment it is. He designs the kind of suits that you can pull out of your closet year after year and look good and presentable. His clothes never look dated. That type of aesthetic can be good and bad. Good for the reasons stated above and bad because from a fashion standpoint it can become a bit repetitive and boring. Since he doesn't focus on trends as much there is nothing new to look at, so I usually do not highlight a lot of his collections on my blog because it would look like I am showcasing the same collection year after year, but this year he stepped out of his comfort zone and added a bit of color to his collection which he hardly ever does which is more on trend with what is going on currently in men's fashion.
