Your Boyfriend's Jeans

Greetings fashionistas!

Are you into the boyfriend jeans look? As a fashion stylist and fashionista, I find this look very cool. Yet, before I try this trend, I wanted to know more. 

Wearing a pair of your boyfriend's jeans might not fight you. Even with a nice belt, I don't think my petite stature could take the oversized jeans. So, when I found this illustration, I thought I would share this with you.

As you can see, this illustration also includes styling tips, which I like. Although, the jeans are borrowed from the men, our goal as a woman, is to make it our own. Feminity is key.

What do you think? How do you wear your boyfriend jeans? If you need help or have a question, please let me know.

Stay fabulous!

Jeans and Shoes: A Love Story Made in Fashion Heaven

Greetings fashionistas!

The weekend is here! If you are like me, you cannot wait to slip on those comfy jeans. But what shoes to wear? That is the question!

We have so many options out there for shoes. Booties, sneakers, stilletoes... And depending on the type of jeans your wear, the shoes choice could look strange.

So, when I found this illustration on Pinterest, I had to share with you. This will definitely help me this weekend. According to this picture, my shoe choice hasn't been too bad. Thankfully, it gives you two choices, depending on the weather and type of activity you will be doing.

Finally, be careful about the type of jeans you wear. Make sure they fit your silhouette. In a recent blog post, I share with you tips on finding your perfect denim jeans.

What do you think of this guide? If you have any questions, need help or advice, please let me know.

Your Beautiful Self!

Happy Monday!

Hope you had an fabulous weekend. As I was thinking and researching for this post, I thought how wonderful it is to feel and look confident in our clothes. 

For a long time, I have studied what looks good on my body type. For as far as I can remember, I thought my curvy thighs and derrière signified I possessed a pear-shape figure. Nothing wrong with that. But I was dressing my body the wrong way. I mesured myself and discovered, very recently, that I had an hourglass shape. 

When I found this picture on Pinterest, I was happy to share with you, and hope with all my heart that this will help you.

Black Tie Event: What to wear?

Happy Friday Fashionistas!

I love Black Tie events. They are the unique occasions for us to dress up and look our best. For most of us, we only get to wear that special dress or suit once a year at the office Christmas party.

The first formal event I attended, was a corporate(formal) Christmas/Holiday party. I had no idea what to wear. Then, I remembered seeing Coco Chanel's picture of her wearing a simple black dress and pearls. Inspired by that image, I went shopping for the party a whole two weeks before in order to find that perfect dress. After visiting many stores, I had found the perfect black dress. It was long, flowy and classic. I think Coco would have liked my outfit. With the dress, I wore some pearls stud earrings and shiny diamond bracelet, and finished the look with some comfortable black booty shoes. 

Of course, this party was back in 1998 and my fashion style has changed. Yet, the little black dress will always be a classic for me. 

Below, I share with you Pinterest pins for women and men I found very interesting. It includes ideas for different Black Tie events. 
As you may notice, accessories are very important. They complete the look.

For the women...

For the men...

Leggings: The Staple Piece for Every Girl's Closet

Happy Monday Fashionistas!

Hope you had an awesome weekend!  I started working from home eight months ago, and the transition from an office downtown to my kitchen table wasn't easy. It's a lot of planning and motivation. 

I've also noticed how much I work in my pyjamas. It's fun but after a while, it got me down, and honestly it got boring. My morale took a hit. So about a week ago, I started wearing a bit of makeup, some simple earrings and a pair of comfy leggings with a nice tank top.

Now I wonder: How can I look stylish and comfortable? That is the question!

So I searched the worldwide web for some inspiration and here what I have found.

Some inspiring looks for home...

Some stylish tunics...

My favorite weekend looks...

When wearing leggings, here are some styling tips every girl should follow to look their best.
1.  Leggings aren't pants, therefore please make sure the top falls at the hips and covers the derrière.
2. When going outside, wear layers. Scarves, cardigan, sweaters and jackets go well with leggings.
3. A great pair of boots or booties look awesome with leggings.
4. Buy at least 3 pairs of leggings. Charcoal grey, black and leather.
5. Invest in a good quality pair of leggings with a high and wide waistband.

Now, go rock those leggings, girls!

Stay fabulous!

Coco Chanel: My Fashion and Style Icon

Happy Friday!

Last week, on August 19th, was Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel's birthday. Thanks to this fabulous and stylish lady, women around the world has a LBD(the little black dress) in her closet.

Mademoiselle Chanel in her early years, starting making hats and sold them to the rich and famous. Then, with the help of her friend Etienne Balsan, opened her first shop in Paris. And the rest, is history.

For me, Chanel is a fashion and style icon. With her innovations, she changed the world of fashion and the way women dressed. No more corsets or conventionnal ways of dressing for women. Halleluia!

As for jewelry, Chanel is the queen of costume jewelry. Thanks to her, women from every social status could wear nice jewelry that looked expensive. Glass beads and pearls for example, are my favorites. 

What do you like about Coco Chanel? Let me know.

Starter Guide to Female Fashion

Happy Friday!

Since I was a teenage girl, I have loved fashion and style. Finding my own style was lots of fun and learning. Style is always redefined-- in my case anyway. I don't see myself wearing the same type of outfits I used to wear in my twenties. However, I do like mixing styles from the past with current trends. That's my ecclectic and unique style. I do keep things simple, feminine and classy. But I also like being unique in my own style.

When I found this guide on Pinterest, I had to share with you. It's the ultimate starter guide for female fashion. It helps you figure out which body type you are, finding the right fit for shirts, pants, shoes, and the color which suit you best. I think every girl and fashionista should have this guide.

If you have any questions or need advice, please let me know.
