This Summer’s “It” Shoe

thissummersitshoes

It seems like just a season ago heels were the “it” shoe. From painfully beautiful stilettos to edgy platforms, these elongating creatures were the only shoes to be seen in. But attention fashionistas, flats have made their big comeback. Comfort is taking a front seat in the style goddess’ wardrobe with lace-up gladiators, slides, and espadrilles. Chic flats are the new heels, but better.

You may be thinking, how do I get that stunningly glamorous feeling without my favorite pair of heels? Well, the answer is easy. You just need to style your beloved flats exquisitely. What makes heels a fashionista’s best friend is its ability to lengthen her body within seconds. So the solution is to create a visual illusion of a taller, slimmer you with apparel. High wasted bottoms and maxi dresses are your new best friend in this case.

The truth of the matter is that if you are up for the scavenger hunt, you can certainly find flat shoes that are significantly more alluring than heels. Lace-up shoes are all the rage right now, these shoes are a must for the summer. With all the enchantment of heels, and none of the pain, these shoes are a winner in my eyes. And for those of you that don’t want to deal with the hassle of knee high laces, there are slides and espadrilles. Slides and espadrilles have been making a slow come back, but check any of your favorite fashionista’s Instagrams and you will definitely see one of these shoes.

Effortless is the key word of the summer,and flats meet that description flawlessly. These shoes take easy, breezy to a new level, making them the best option for the tranquility of summer. So put those backbreaking heels in the attic, and bring out those comfortable flats you have been dying to wear all year.

That moment when you can throw away all of your old school work because school is out..Unset your alarm clocks and unwind this summer with these resort wear fashion trends! This year, designers each set a mood for their 2016 collections. I’m here to present three moods to be in this summer:

1. Simple, Laid-Back Mood: Black & White

In the fashion world, these two colors met and it was love at first sight. If you’re looking to have a simple, stylish look this spring/summer, this is the direction to go in. Rebecaa Minkoff set a coo-girl mood with her collection full of fringe and wide legs:

The Perfect Summer Makeup

perfectsummermakeup

Finally, summer has arrived! School is out, no more going to class, no more homework, and no more worrying about finals! Now you can enjoy going out with family and friends. Depending on where you are from, wearing makeup can be difficult, especially when it is really hot. Living in Southern California, made me realize the struggle of dealing with the heat when I wear makeup. Sweating and makeup do not go well together, they are each other’s worst enemy. Here is my makeup routine that I do everyday during the summer!

Before I start putting on makeup, I cleanse my face using my Clearasil gentle cleanser. I have sensitive and combination skin so this cleanser is perfect! (Another cleanser I like to use is Simple Facial Cleanser Water). After I like to moisturize my face with a SPF moisturizer. A moisturizer with SPF is a must when the weather is really hot; this protects your face from the sun.

The primer I like to use is Benefit Porefessional, this primer helps minimize your pores and makes a smooth canvas for your foundation and concealer. Because of the hot weather, I don’t like putting on heavy foundation, so I opt for a tinted moisturizer or CC Cream. This makes the skin look really natural and less cake-y. For a little more coverage I like to use a light concealer to cover some blemishes.

For my eye makeup, I prime my eyelids with my favorite primer. This helps the eye shadow stay on and not crease. During the summer I like to keep it natural and just use a soft brown shade on my crease to give it a little definition. Then I put waterproof mascara. I usually skip using eyeliner over the summer because I like the natural and fresh look. The blush I use is coral; the flush on the cheeks pulls the makeup together.

I set my makeup with a translucent finishing powder and top it off with Urban Decay’s setting spray. The setting spray helps the makeup stay on longer and keeps the makeup from sliding off your face throughout the day. This is my makeup routine on those hot summer days!

But First, Let Me Take A Selfie!

selfie

Can you believe that the front-facing camera was introduced 5 years ago by Apple? Here we are in 2015 and selfies are dominating any and every social media. Look at Kim Kardashian. She released an entire novel of selfies which sold out of its limited edition in just a minute. Ellen Degeneres’ infamous Oscar’s selfie received over 3 million retweets, mainly because all of our favs were in the selfie, but that’s beside the point.  I want you to have the best selfie ever because, well, you deserve it! So, here’s a list of my favorite apps to use to get the perfect post.

Squaready:

Cost: FREE

If you’re an avid Instagram user, this is a must-have app. Sometimes you take an amazing selfie, but it doesn’t fit into Instagram’s size restraints for posts. This app fixes that problem and adds structure to your page with a border. What’s cool about the border is that you can change its color and move your photo wherever you like. This app also works for cropping videos into Instagram! Here’s an example of a selfie I used Squaready with:

VSCOcam:

VSCOcam is a very popular editing application for not only selfies, but photos in general. You can manipulate everything from contrast, shadows and highlights and add custom filters. It adds a special touch to your face with its skin tone editing tool. (Perfect for selfies!) There’s also this cool-people community a part of the app. People publish their best photos and there’s some really impressive work that gain well-deserved recognition from the app users. Maybe your selfie will cause some buzz!

Afterlight 

Cost: $0.99

Another quick way to polish up your selfies with this photo editing app. I know what you’re thinking. “Why does it cost?” The amount of filters on this bad boy is insane. 74 to be exact. They’re all very subtle so that you still post a selfie that looks like you and not some Photoshopped fake. That’s what I love about this app.

And that’s that! These three apps are the holy grail to selfie posts. Remember: You don’t have to edit so heavily. Your selfie is a picture of you, so it honestly is already flawless to begin with. However, don’t be afraid to spice up your pictures with some subtle changes that only enhance what already looks great. You can download these apps in your device’s app store.

Your Guide To The Perfect Concert Outfit

Your Guide To The Perfect Concert Outfit

Some of your favorite musicians (Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Drake, 5 Seconds of Summer) are headlining at an arena near you this summer. Get your tickets, memorize their songs and, most of all, pick out the perfect outfit! There’s nothing better than having a great time and looking good while doing it. Don’t know what to wear? Here’s some concert outfit ideas, along with beauty looks, for the sweet, the rebellious and the casual concert goer.

Angelic Aroma

If you like a clean look, go for all-white. On the left is a look for a fierce attitude! The cropped mesh top paired with the high waist shorts shows the right amount of skin. Paired with hightop studded Converses, silver chain and a blue-eyed small bag, you’re sure to stand out amongst the crowd. The look on the right says  “I’m the fresh air of the party!” The crisp, white dress paired with sandals is dainty, sweet and classic. Add some color with a fun accessory such as the watermelon Forever21 pouch pictured.

Ravishing Rebel 

Change the mood in an all-black get up. It’s a simple way to make a bold statement. If you’re easy-going, relaxed and headed to an outdoor festival, try the look on the left. A black romper paired with sandals. And, of course, some cute accessories! If you’re a little more daring, the look on the right is for you. A lace dress, paired with short ankle boots and a cool-girl hat is tough, stylish and has just the right amount of edge. The green bag adds a pop of color while the crescent moon ring adds a mystical element to this lovely look.

Spice Up Your Life

Fun is an understatement with these two looks! I love this hooded denim dress paired with the fuchsia sandals. It’s relaxed, athletic and, simply put, it just works. The orange satchel is bold, sophisticated and a great contrast to the shoes and dress. The high waisted green shorts and racerback cropped top is very ooh la la. Not to mention those amazingly printed sandals!

Perfect Prints

Always save the best for last: PRINTS! Loud, proud and standing out from the crowd. Try this black and white jumpsuit and pair it with colorful accessories. It’s modest, but fabulous! Go for a tropical look with this printed crop top and textured blue shorts. Throw it back to the late 90s with a jelly heel and let the music speak to you with some gold lip earrings.

Beauty Idea:

Concerts are long and, sometimes, it gets pretty hot and you might get a little sweaty! So, do a simple, natural look to go along with these lovely looks. Beyoncé put it best, “You wake up, flawless.”

South Korea- Couple Fashion

korea_couple_fashion

Have you ever worn the exact same outfit as somebody else on the same day? Some people may cringe at the thought of accidentally wearing the same shirt as somebody else, but in South Korea, this is definitely not the case. A current street fashion trend in Korea is wearing couple outfits, or dressing similar to your boyfriend or girlfriend, to express your affection towards each other. They carefully plan out their outfits together, using the pieces of clothing they have or bought and using it to coordinate with each other.Below is an example of a couple wearing a matching leather jacket. As you can see, they do not have the exact same outfit on, but do have similar color coordination. This is a look that is definitely for people who like to spice their outfits up and add a little bit of edge!

Having a hard time trying to find matching outfits in your closet with your boyfriend or girlfriend? No need to worry, in Korea there are stores that specifically specialize in the couple fashion, having matching clothing sold both for men and women.

There are also couple pajamas! Of course you probably wouldn’t wear this in public, but it’s still adorable to match with your boyfriend or girlfriend! Maybe if you have a sleepover you can have everyone wear the same pajamas… that might be a bit too outgoing though :)  I remember when I was younger, my family used to have matching pajama outfits! Speaking of families… this trend doesn’t just stop here! There are family couple outfits too! Now you can match up with your sister, brother, mom, or dad! How cute is that <3

How to pack efficiently!

howtopackefficiently

For someone who travels from San Francisco to Los Angeles or to Las Vegas frequently, packing can be a struggle. The hardest part about packing is trying not to over pack or under packing. I always tend to over pack because I’m always afraid of forgetting something or not having enough clothes for the trip. Then I realized that my way of packing is not efficient, I’m wasting time and luggage space. So I watched YouTube videos and read articles online on how to pack efficiently. Then I came up with a system that suited me best.

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 11.44.20 PM

Step 1

Before I start packing, I look at the weather of the destination I am going to. I have to know what kind of clothes to bring, for hot weather or chilly weather. Once I find out the weather, I rummage through my closet to see what outfits I want to wear throughout the trip.

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 11.46.23 PM

Step 2

When I think of what I want to wear, I put outfits together for each day I am on my trip so that I won’t over pack. This helps with not over packing because you don’t bring too much clothes that are not necessary. When putting outfits together, I also add jewelry and shoes. When picking shoes, I tend to choose one that will go with multiple outfits so that I won’t bring too many shoes.

Step 3

After picking out my outfits, I pack my make up and toiletries. I use little packs from target or the dollar store for my moisturizer, shampoo, conditioner, and facewash/bodywash so that I don’t have to bring the whole bottles. This helps with packing too so that I can just bring carry-on instead of checking in my luggage. I have a ton of makeup and would love to bring my whole collection but I know that can’t happen. So I get my small makeup bag and just bring the essentials, one eyeshadow palette, foundation, concealer, face powder, mascara, eyeliner, and lipstick and lip balm.

That’s it! Just three steps to help you pack. This method has made packing so much easier and fun! Making the outfits is my favorite part!

Airport looks

airport4

The semester is almost over and the summer holiday is about to start. Many of you are going home to spend time with your family, or going on a party trip with your friends or an adventurous vacation. How will you get there? Of course by plane! Do you want to look stylish while siting on the airport and waiting for hours? Of course you do! We gathered for you the best looks of our favorite fashion bloggers and have for you few tips what to wear.

airport1

The most important thing is to wear something comfortable! Plane rides can be very long and it won’t help if you wear something uncomfortable. Some of you who are traveling overseas might spend over 20 hours on the plane. Unless you are traveling in the first class, make sure to feel comfortable in your cloths. Some suggestions are leggings, sweaters or sweatshirts, jeans and t-shirts. As for the shoes, you want to wear some comfortable sneakers, flats or slip-ons that are easy to take off for the security check. Also, remember you might be walking a long distance to the gate.

airport2

Security checks are taking so long and you already want to be checking the duty free shops. If you are jewelry lover, try to wear minimum of it since it takes long time to remove it. Also, you should dress in layers. The air conditioning on planes is usually very cold and you don’t want to be freezing. I always wear a scarf with me that sometimes serve as a blanket. It keeps me warm when I need and it is a perfect accessory. If you don’t like wearing make up while traveling on the plane as me, wear a stylish hat that will cover your face. As for the bags, I would recommend to wear a shoulder bag that are comfortable to wear or a tote where you can put a lot of stuff. For the long plane rides, you should pack a sleeping mask. It helps to fall asleep and it looks stylish too.

Summer trends 2

We have more summer trends for you!  Don’t miss out this summer and be trendy wearing trench coat kimonos or culottes!

TRENCH COAT KIMONO

Kimonos are definitely in, but have you ever heard of the Kimono Trench Coat? This coat, unlike many other heavy coats built for winter weather, is nice and light and is perfect for a slight breeze in the summer. It’s casual but classy at the same time! Having a windy day? The kimono coat is perfect! It covers your arms to keep you warm and flows with the breeze!

The second look is a bit alternative with the mix and matching of the colors. I love how she used the coat to make the look more casual and wearable. The third outfit has her decked out from head to toe all in white while the kimono adds a difference in length to the outfit! Hey, I just noticed that they have almost the same shoes on!!!

CULOTTES

Tight jeans can be a bit uncomfortable when it is 80 degrees outside. So how about culottes? These are flowy pants that kind of look like a skirt and is an easy way to stay cool! The first outfit is nice for a causal work lunch. The culottes give an “office girl” look to this outfit (but I don’t think an off-shoulder top is very “office girl”). The second outfit is matchy-matchy with the white crop top and culottes. I love how she added a pop of color with the blue sunglasses! Give your outfit a cowgirl feel by wearing these brown suede culottes shown in the third outfit! It was really cool how the last outfit played with the patterns and had a patterned blue crop top and white culottes. By adding heels and sunnies, this definitely topped off the look!
