think pink

13th November 2012

between being pretty in pale pink or fabulous in fun fuschia, there are so many ways to think pink && we are thinking neon, neon, neon!

pink is not just for wednesday’s anymore (sorry mean girls reference), anyway can be an opportunity to think pink, especially in trendy neon! with these bright cigarette pants && a slouchy matching sweater, i was able to make a fall worthy neon look that is bold, bright && beautiful while keeping it comfy && casual.
my matching bubble necklace helped complete this monochromatic look, while the bright blue shoes && spotted bag helped compliment my hot hues!

Shocking Pink

16th August 2012

Make jaws drop, when you strut your stuff in shocking pink!

Today we’re thinking pink by pairing the happy hue with neutrals to make it pop, lets take a peek…

I love to wear pink, it makes me feel pretty & girlie! But pale pink can be so predictable, so it’s nice to add some edge by trying on a shocking pink color!

To make this color even more shocking, try pairing it with blush, creme or champaign (as shown). I choose to go for a mostly monochromatic look with pops of pink for a harsh contrast! The color combo even carried over to my tights with nude fishnets. Nude fishnets that can be a great transitional tight, for when the weather is still too warm for traditional tights.

Pink Panache

31st July 2012

Panache: (Noun) person’s flamboyant spirit
It’s back… this outfit features one of my favorite tops once again, the fabulous kate spade francoise top from the 2012 ksny spring collection.

I always end up feeling too casual when I am just wearing something simple and sleeveless, but this sparkly number brings the bling to an otherwise borderline boring silhouette.  

Because I am so crazy for color, I try to stay away from all black outfits year around, especially in the summer where I try to celebrate the weather with bare legs and bright hues. Nevertheless, I broke my own rules today (and really, isn’t that what fashion is all about?) by being bold in all black!
Despite my disobedience, I kept it colorful with my current color crush: bright pink.
if you like this look, hype it!

as always, I would love to hear your feedback? was I successful in my attempt to take this top from spring to summer without fail? what about all the black? how did I do in making this dark & daring outfit summer appropriate?

fluorescent flow

25th July 2012

has the summer heat got you down? well don’t run from the sun, pull on your shades & face the weather head on. Today’s outfit will beat the heat by wearing hot pink!
neon & neutrals are always a good idea, especially for summer! These vibrant hues are the perfect way to spice up a hot summer day. 

As I have mentioned before, neons are huge for spring/summer. They pair perfectly with neutrals to breathe some bright light into otherwise basic outits. Here I really used a basic to make a statement by pairing the basic white tee with neon pieces.

high low skirts are also really big right now, they take the sophistication of a maxi & pair it with the whimsy of a mini. They are also perfect for summer, because they keep it nice and breezy! I switched mine up by turning it sideways. These skirts are usually worn high in the front & low and the back but with a quarter shift I was able to wear it a new way.

can’t get enough? enjoy some more neon-ness…

Pink Friday

13th July 2012

So my secret is out! I am completely smitten, simply head over heels in la-la-love with neon pink!

This happening hue will be spotted everywhere for seasons to come working it on the runway or brightening up a beautiful face.
So yes, neons are back and brighter than ever, but that does not mean we should repeat some of the blindingly bad fashion choices we saw in the eighties, oh yikes. Neon spandex, crazy too-bright eye shadows and & over-the-top neon-nonsess are all still big no-nos! To prevent falling into these florescence faux paws, introduce your neons to your neutrals; these compatible hues will live happily ever after.

Neon Nonsense

6th July 2012

As you may have noticed, neon’s were a crazy big trend for spring! 
I have to admit, I was not on board at first. It was so cold and dark here in San Francisco for so long, that neon’s seamed too bright.. even for me! But now that it’s warmed up, I too have warmed to this eye popping color trend.
For spring, we saw bright neon dresses & skirts, and enhanced looks with florescence accessories. So for this look I decided to dabble with these highlighter hues.
 So the key to wearing neon is to think “anti-eighties” this will keep away from looking cheap & help you strive towards looking chic! Think back, in the 80’s neon came in obnoxious fabrics and was often paired with other bright colors, crazy silhouettes and over-the-top accessories. You can avoid repeating these historic fashion distress this by pairing your neon with neutrals: try all whites with color pop accessories for summer, or blacks and denim for fall.
