Eyeglasses

IMG_0910

I remember growing up as a child wearing glasses. One day in second grade, I couldn’t see the board, and I told my mom and dad, and two weeks later I had my first pair of glasses that were made by Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. I remember being one of the only kids in the class wearing them, being called four eyes, and always hating my glasses until I got contacts in seventh grade after begging my parents to let me have them. at that point I was apathetic to my glasses, but I was quite upset that they let my older sister who had discovered she had bad eyesight much later in life get contacts before me. These were the days when wearing glasses wasn’t fashionable.

Now people may think I disliked my glasses because of the name calling, and getting teased as a child, but that swan;t the case. Being called four eyes never bothered me simply because it was true. The thing that bothered me was that I felt I was at a disadvantage compared to the other kids because I couldn’t see as well as them. For some sporting events, going swimming, and a variety of other things as a kid, I couldn’t see clearly more than ten feet in front of me. I remember as a child going waterfall sliding, and taking my glasses of, getting out on the wrong side of the river, and getting lost because I couldn’t figure out how to get back to my parents all because I couldn’t see a thing. My glasses were in my mom’s purse. She watched me from the other side getting lost, and knew she couldn’t do anything except let me figure out how to get back over. Continue reading

Spring Florals

Florals are not just a pattern that are reserved for spring and summer anymore! They can be worn all year round and add just a nice Feminine softness to whatever outfit you are wearing that day. Great to pair with any basic colors, winter florals tend to appear with dark toned backgrounds such as maroon, grey, black, or navy and have flowers in shades of pale pinks, purples, reds, and grays. But, you can find them in so many more colors than that. What I love about a great winter floral is that it adds a nice feminine touch and a bright color that can seem to be severely lacking in all of the dark, snowy, cloudy weather that is winter.

By pairing florals with a black leather jacket, or some combat boots, a girl can still maintain a style that is still slightly rebellious and edgy. Or,  a girl can pair florals with some light brown accessories, a pair of riding boots, and some gold earrings to keep in the image of the extremely feminine. By paring a floral print with a denim shirt and a nice heeled boot, a girl can show off her girl next door style. Florals are extremely versatile and can be paired with a variety of different looks. Don’t get stuck in the classic romantic image of what florals are, even though they look great that way too, as shown by The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco. Make them what you want to make them. They can be worn almost any way you want! Ciao!

Celeb Style: Katy Perry

Yes, I am continuing with my theme of Grammy artists. I will be going through some of my musical artists and the fashion that they are sporting. Today is none other than the fabulous woman that is Katy Perry. Not only is she amazing at producing hit after catchy hit, she also has an amazing sense of style that is true to herself and her personality.

At the Grammy’s this star sported not one, but two fabulous dresses. One at the Grammy’s which was a cream and black Valentino Couture dress with a sheer top and a music note printed bottom (how appropriate), and the other at the the Universal Music Group after party. The second dress was a gorgeous Armani Privé sky blue dress with a sequined cover deep v that became an empire waisted ocean goddess dress. May I say that she looked stunning in both.

Now, moving on to Katy’s street Style. Not only was this fabulous woman on the cover of January’s issue of Marie Claire, but she also has be doing a lot of travel (which means extremely recent street style pictures are limited). With the release of John Mayer’s new Single, “Who You Love” the duo have been traveling a lot and doing interviews. Then we hit Awards season where all photos are of her in gorgeous dresses. So, basically, I will just be going through some of my favorite KP outfits from the past couple of months, like the jacket she is sporting in the photo with Mayer (above). Sporting a chic Black and grey striped coat, Perry pairs it with neutrals that contrast sharply with her usually bright performance style. 

Katy Perry Grammy Performance

Since photos of her street style are severely lacking at the moment, Let’s talk about her performance wardrobe. As always, Katy wouldn’t be Katy if her performance wear wasn’t a spectacle in itself. At the Grammys she sported a light up crucifix, flower crowns, or rhinestone covered leotards and sparkly jump ropes. Basically, the girl is not afraid to have some fun. She likes to take a theme, and role with it. At the Grammys, the woman took a witchy theme and took it to the next level. She sported a cape that came off to reveal the crucifix top, and then also wore a longer skirt on top of the skirt shown above. The girl loves creating a spectacle, and she succeeds at it. Bravo Katy! Keep the revolutionary, cutting edge fashion coming on all fronts!

Be Kind & Be Loving!
