What's your Inspiration?

Inspiration. That burst of creativity that forces a reaction within the self that you MUST do something! Creative Inspirations can come from anywhere in the world. In my world of fashion, I am constantly inspired by everything thing I see.
Lately, I find myself Inspired by the trend of tribal prints that are in season this spring. I recently went on a trip to our Native American Lands... A VERY spiritual and inspirational journey. On most days I think about that trip, and our American history.

Alongside that I think about modern fashion. I am constantly inspired by the looks I see on the runways and in magazines. I love a classic chic look, but I also enjoy a relaxed feel. I live a busy city lifestyle and I enjoy the challenge everyday to make the two worlds meet.

Inspiration comes from everywhere. I hope you find something this week that inspires you!

featuring fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi's creative inspiration.

Some days you just don't have the energy or strength to muster up a stylish outfit. When days like this happen to me I try to pick something comfortable and versatile.

My first step is everyones fav! A staple pair of leggings paired with a tunic or longer over sized top. Something big and Baggy! The bigger the Better!! This is look is very comforting for days when you just want to hop back in bed.

Another trick are BIG bellbottom dance pants. Try to find a pair made of really nice quality fabric that you could possibly pull off as trousers for a classic look. Wear with a longer top ( can be fitted or not). These days you catch me in this look quite often. I live in a colder climate so I love pairing these pants with a man's cashemere oversize sweater to keep me warm and fashionable all day long.

These options are both 100% comfortable and can be dressed up or down with the perfect accessories. Adjust shoes, hat, and accessories to whatever climate you live in. If worn correctly these outfits can be ideal for any occasion.

Music Festival Fashion

It’s that time of year again… Time for Music Festivals!!!

These epic outdoor events are always set up to be a good time. Filled with great music, good friends, strong drinks, delicious food, and plenty of sunshine. The perfect set up for fun but, one misstep in the fashion department could put a huge damper on your day!

Lucky for you I am here to give you tried and true fashion tips to make sure you stay cool and look even cooler at any and all musical festivities you attend!!!

First off you need a simple yet comfortable dress (or romper). This should be an item that is flowy, comfortable, and you don’t mind getting a little dirty. Preferably with something that has plenty of pockets so you don’t need to worry about bringing along a purse. Also, when selecting your fabulous outfit, pay extra attention to tan lines.

Dress the look up with a great pair of flats or boots. I would recommend wearing a closed toe shoes that covers your feet. The grounds at these events are filthy and by the end of the day, it is scary to see what exposed toes can look like.

Accessorize your look with the #1 fashion item for festivals: A Hat!! Perfect for keeping the sun off you face and keep you looking casually chic all day.

DON’T FORGET: Which brings me to possibly one of the most important tips. Sunscreen and water. Stay hydrated and protected from the sun all day to ensure you have a great time you will always remember!!!

Going Green

If u haven’t heard by now, going green is a huge trend. So today I propose the question: Is it time to detox your wardrobe?

When most people think eco chic they thing famed designer Stella Mccartney, but what most people don’t consider are used clothes. Some of my greatest finds have been discovered at vintage and second hand stores and what better way to support mother earth than reusing what we already have.

But If vintage isn’t your thing try to find organic cotton or clothing made of natural materials that have little or no impact on our envonment. Also, now a days its more common to find faux leather and faux fur almost anywhere you shop.

This April is 22 is Earth Day. Spend this month supporting and taking care of mother earth. I challenge you to find your own eco chic style in whatever you passion may be.
