Ladies the one thing we never leave home without is our PURSE! Some of us carry our lives in it. A purse has to be functional, comfortable to carry, complement your ensemble, and most important appropriate for the occasion. For nights out on the town and special occasions, the right clutch has the potential  to pull your whole look together.

Below are some new KocoSky clutches.

My personal favorite is the first one. I love the black/neutral color combo in the snake print. It will add texture and intrigue to any solid dress. You can also style these clutches with jeans, black blazer, white top, pendant necklace and pointy toe heels. Think versatility ladies!

ADD THAT POP and MAKE IT HOT!

You’ve got to ACCESSORIZE!

21 Jan

Accessories can make such an impact. This season, statement pieces are all the rage. I absolutely love versatile pieces that can be paired with casual outfits and added to dressy ones for a pop of extra LOVE. Yes…LOVE, because when you complete an ensemble with that perfect accessory, it becomes a vision of L.O.V.E!

This disk necklace below can be added to your everyday t-shirt and jeans look. It instantly adds a touch of chic without putting it over the top. It has a nice weight to it and can be adjusted to lay closer to your neck or just below your collar-bone.

This metal necklace features a scale like pattern made of half disks, linked together.

The gold tone has a rich warming effect that looks great against emerald-green, coral, and black and white. The silver has  a cool, crisp vibe that pairs well with blue tones, white, and of course black.

How would you style this necklace?

TOP 3 BLACK DRESSES ON THE RED CARPET

TOP 3 BLACK DRESSES ON THE RED CARPET by jaic on Polyvore

The 70th annual Golden Globes Red Carpet was a sight of glamour and beauty.  Stars lined the plush walkway adorned in breath-taking designer gowns and exquisite jewelry. While some donned pops of color others played it safe in the ever so elegant black.

Salma Hayek shimmered in a Gucci Première gown and blue-green Paraiba Tourmaline Cabochon earrings. This look channels old Hollywood. A touch of shimmer and a curve enhancing silhouette is the perfect marriage for Salma’s curvaceous figure.

Kate Hudson shined in an Alexander Mc Queen  gown,Jennifer Meyer jewelry and Roger Vivier clutch. This classy look steals the scene with a plunging front and embellished collar. The look was well-balanced and accessorized to compliment  Kate’s natural beauty. Truly a Red Carpet gown!

The elegant Nicole Kidman wore an Alexander McQueen gown as well. She looked svelte, draped in an embellished black gown. No high cuts or plunging necklines, just a well thought out design with lines and accents to emulate a long lean figure.

I love the classy designs of these gowns, truly appropriate for a classic event that honors the work of film makers and the starts that bring the screen to life.

What was your favorite look? Do you prefer color?

 

THE TRUTH ABOUT STRIPES

THE TRUTH ABOUT STRIPES

THE TRUTH ABOUT STRIPES by jaic featuring alice olivia dress

 

Who doesn’t love stripes? Designers use this timeless classic on tops, pants, dresses, accessories and shoes. This Spring, stripes will be big, making another fashionable statement for all those that love a vibrant pattern.

 

Horizontal stripes in general have a widening effect. Above, figure 1 has on a body skimming dress with a solid top and striped bottom. Note that the bottom stripes have a widening effect on her slim figure. Figure 2 is the same model but she has on thinner stripes with slimming solid side panels. The thin stripes blend together and work well on her thin figure.

 

Models 3 and 4 are clad in larger stripes. Model 3 has on a body skimming mini which works well for her since she’s slim but for fuller figures, a loosely draped fit with larger stripes( like model 4) will work best. A loose drape doesnt eliminate the widening effect but it won’t emphasize any rolls..if you have any.

 

Vertical and diagonal stripes have a slimming/lengthening effect. Model 5 has on a one shoulder dress with diagonal stripes which wrap around her curves, giving her a slim yet curvy silhouette. Model 6 has on vertical stripes which lengthen and slim.  The vertical lines carry your eyes up and down-thus slimming effect.

 

Model 6 is slim, not very curvaceous and has more of an athletic figure. She’s wearing a thin striped knit which works well for her. The thin stripes wrap around her, creating the illusion of curves. This stripes work well with petite/slim figures while thicker/loose-fitting stripes work better with full figures.

 

In the end…its really all about how you feel. If you can work those stripes with a full figure…work it! Be confident and flaunt those curves. It’s what makes us beautiful, feminine and WOMAN.

WORK IT LADIES!
