The white behind the color.

I have friend, somewhat close that is always telling me that it’s too much white in my house, because of the walls which are white, most parts of the furniture and even the accessories have a white trace. No, my dear friend, it’s not a mental hospital and I don’t feel trapped in the terrifying hands of the world.

It’s just white, lots of simple white that goes perfect with all the colors of the rainbow. White walls waiting for me to add my fingerprint through the colors that represent and complete me.

In a very small way it’s like this dreamy place, that I’ve been admiring all morning. The perfect shapes, the combinations, the sweet and innocent white that absorbers the naughty red and mean blue.

Amazing place, with cool combinations that should somehow be everyone’s list when decorating a house, their house!

Fashion advice of the day!

Absorb the white; I know it’s very IN now for outfits and accessories but I’m talking about the one in your house, the one on the wall, or furniture, the one on your perfect bed embroidery or the tiny, tiny baby boys/girl garment.

Use it, it’s the most to the hear color and the simples that can state your worlds to the outside and the out there.  🙂

I know this sounds more melancholic and dramatic to your ears, but I have to say that it’s written with a lot of joy, because it’s just that close to hear that can be present more detached.

Neon green with ruffles.

I do have to admit that I’m a bit obsessed with this new bright green neon that’s been filling all the stores.

So, yesterday I went on a shopping spree for dresses and shirts that have this color, but unfortunately I couldn’t manage to find something nice, or even remotely acceptable to wear when going out.

What to do? What to do?

Well the easiest thing, from my part that is, I bought a bra! Well, not just any bra a dark blue, neon green and pink bra with ruffles. Yes, now I finally have something with this amazing color for which I was craving all this weeks!

Fashion advice of the day!

When you can’t find the color that you desire in dresses, pants or shirts, buy underwear!  Yes, sweet panties and chic bras that can be seen through see-through blouses and cute men camisoles. It’s a very sexy and easy thing to wear in various occasion and may I tell you, the feeling of having that very private thing seen just a bit, well it’s a new type of flirt! At least for me :))

Happy first of May to all.

Blue on the street!

I’m one of those persons for which color is a big part of her life, starting with clothes, wall paint, make-up to car color and even the Iphone cover needs to have some bright shades.

But to mix and match all this color is not an easy task and sometimes even the best can get it wrong.

So, in order to avoid big damages, its best to play a little trick: choose just one bold, bright color and wear it proud.  The rest of the outfit can be formed by just one/two colors, preferable pale. 🙂

Buy/wear an electric colored pair of shoes! If you don’t have one, now is the time to go shopping, the choices are countless and combinations can make even the simplest outfit an amazing get out and party ensemble. Don’t be afraid of electric color; just remember to wear one thing so bright the rest need to be kept simple and classy.

Don’t worry about the other accessories because with the perfect shoes the rest don’t event cont. Just walk bravely and all eyes will be on you, trust me!

I today, just did that with this all blue gorgeous pair of Pat Calvin lace-up shoe. In the middle of the day, I went for a glass of wine with dear friends and may I tell you what an impression the electric blue shoes made on everybody. 🙂

FUCHSIA FEVER

Another part of living based on the advices given by my best friends, took me yet to one more different decision, but this time regarding my lips.
For me lipstick has always meant lip salve, a way to regenerate and keep the natural color of my lips intact, even in the cold of winter.
But, a cool advert in a glossy magazine, has manage to make me take a step forward and tried a, may I say, crazy, really bold color of lipstick.
Exactly what it happened with the kitty cat glasses, this bold, strident pink shade, was turned my world upside down and in just a couple of minutes, I when from being a lip salve girl to wearing a fuchsia fever lipstick. Yes, you read well, fuchsia, an intense pink made my lips pop out and attract all the eyes that managed to interact with me. (I wasn’t on a man hunt, just trying to live differently and to were bold things without making me feel weird).

 
Fashion advice of the day!
Just do it! I know that most of you, just like me, have wondered how it would be to wear those bright colors that look perfect in the adverts on TV and then quickly change the thought because that type of color is available for just some women. Well, may I tell you, that’s not true!
I never wore even lipstick, what can I say about bright colors, which can be seen from a distance. LOOL
But, you should because it looks great! Yes you need to know what color suits you but that doesn’t mean hours of learning and trying, it just needs courage and a good advice from the sales person in the store.
So, till you decide to actually go in a store and try the bold colors, here some advice on what to keep in mind when buying a bright lipstick:
  • Choose the lipstick that essentially has vitamin, vitamin oils, and moisturizers that give your lips the much needed care. Since you apply it on your lips, you need to be very careful while you select the lipstick and ensure that you have the right components. This is because the skin of your lips is very sensitive and they might darken if you use a lipstick with wrong components. Lipstick without the moisturizers and necessary vitamin causes dry and chapped lips.
  • Select the right texture. You can find lipsticks with various textures: from light, glossy to thick and glossy. Different individuals have dissimilar likings and selecting the textures depends on ones comfort factor. Therefore, only go for that texture which will make you feel at ease.
  • Picking out the color.  A lot of women think that all the shades of pink or red look the same to them. My tip is to go to the drugstore or department store and just start picking out shades you like from the different lines you like. Once you have five colors that pique you, line them up next to each other. When shades are lined up you can see, “Oh, this is the more orange one, or this looks a touch cooler, plummier.” Understand? I never pick a makeup color (lip or otherwise) without lining it up against similar shades. Like my mom said, “We may not know what we like, but we definitely know what we don’t like.” Try it!
  • Brighter lip color is a responsibility. I like going out with a bold lip to wearing a white dress. You have to pay attention. Bold lips aren’t casual. If you want the wow factor, you have to pay for it . . . with attention. A pop-of-color lip look means you have to reapply (with a mirror) a few more times than you would a sheer gloss. The lines need to stay crisp to look the most striking. You can either look at this as a pain in the butt or as delicious, girly moments throughout the night. It’s well worth it. A bright lip is confident, sexy!
  • If shades of pink are not for you, red may come in handy. What color red is best for my skin tone? Here’s an easy guide: the paler you are, the bluer the red. The darker you are, the warmer the red. In a nutshell: if you are very pale, like Nicole Kidman, you want a cool-toned red. Midtoned gals like Jennifer Aniston should use a warmer red. The trick of having a red with a touch of gold is perfect for everyone, but especially midtoned gals who may have trouble eyeing a warm red. Deeper skin-toned gals, like Rosario Dawson, should err on the warm, orange-y side. A nice brick red would have the most flattering, cohesive effect.
And don’t forget, life is too short to get hung on small things, wear anything you might like and be proud of yourself.
I have to say, that the lipstick that I bought is called: Fuchsia fever from Maybelline.http://bit.ly/PH3Ok1

Bright B’day!

I’m still not comfortable to present myself, so I will continue with my short but to the point daily advices.
Today, is a really important day me, being my B’day, and I decided to dress simple at work, the flashy outfit is set for tonight. But, I like color and print, patterns and fabric, and I needed to manage a simple but funky combination that can go easy at work and out with friends, when it’s not your birthday. 🙂
 I been playing around with patterns for a very long time, from when my mother stopped dressing me and the models, the hard, complicated one always fascinate me, don’t even get me started with the colors, I have a light blue table in my living room with pink and grey chairs. To explain the color frenzies.
Fashion advice of the day!
Combine, I know you know to mix stuff, but sometimes the mixing is a bit too much, for just a simple day at work.
What to do then? Add just a bright/bold color, the rest can be simple, white, grey, blue; all of them go good with yellow, fuchsia or bold red.
Might seem I bit too low, no worries, patterns are here to help: http://kapitza.com/ – just a little preview of what patterns are and the multitude of shapes that they can give to everything from paper to clothes.
My choice of the day is this, bright yellow and flower patterns go perfect with the B’day happiness and also scare the winter away.
 
Have a great day, my dear fashion addicts.
