In Events, Fashion, Trends, Updates on July 1, 2017 at 3:37 am

When a holiday like Independence Day comes around, you have got to prepare for the celebration! For foodies, it is the barbeques. For explosive enthusiasts, it is the fireworks. For fashion lovers, it is everything else. Bags to carry fireworks and a lipstick that a napkin cannot dab away.

In typical Florida fashion, there is a 50% chance of rain and partly cloudy at night this Independence Day but whether it’s rain boots or sunglasses, Tampa Bay Fashion Week has the must haves accessories that are going to help you bring in this 4th of July in style…rain or shine!

Keeping in mind that fashion is a lifestyle ~ one must first decide what they are going to do before they dress for the outing. If you plan on eating to (or over) your fill and then blasting fireworks into the night, here is what you are going to need:

Knapsacks recently emerged into the mainstream again as attractive, go-to bags to carry what we need. Their multiple pockets organize our stuff and prevent messy situations like lipsticks mixing lotions. It is also perfect for carrying the fiery goodies and to-go plates.

Lippies to keep in mind are Smashbox, Colour Pop Ultra Matte and Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red. Unless you rub your lips in virgin coconut oil and water, these lippies will not come off leaving you to eat, joke and laugh without a care.

Also, a cute cap works no matter the weather. It blocks the sun rays from your eyes and is your first line of defense from a scattered storm.

We don’t know what to expect weather wise this upcoming holiday but we do know with these accessory tips you will bring it in, in style.

Until next time folks,

Happy 4th of July!

Unintentionally Chic

In Designers, Fashion, Trends on November 11, 2010 at 5:03 am

I work in an office that likes to offer themed dress days as the holidays near.  Today happened to be ’80s day.  As I passed one of my co-workers in the hall, I could not help but turn to admire her ensemble.  While I am quite certain that her intention was to look as ridiculous as possible, she accomplished quite the opposite.  She was in fact, unintentionally chic.

Leopard print often bores me in traditional tan and black.  Green, however is a completely different story.  Over these fabulous leggings, she wore a denim mini and neon yellow top.  Her long brown hair was tied to the side, perfectly completing the theme.  All throughout the day, I could not help but think of her fabulous accident.  In fact, she looked as if she had stepped out of a Betsey Johnson ad.

My experience today has brought me to the conclusion that fashion is such a powerful and never-ending force, we may not always need to try as hard as we think.  This is certainly not to say that we should just close our eyes and put together whatever happens to fall out of our closet.  However, if we just loosen up a little, we may find new and exciting fashion possibilities beyond our wildest dreams.
