Plum Peplum

There's nothing I love more than an overly feminine ensemble! I celebrate being a woman, and I gladly embrace the power of femininity. Yesterday was our first day of spring-ish weather after a few days of rain and wind, so I put on something that was warm weather appropriate but that wouldn't look out of place in case it got cooler later that night.

Oliver Twist

In case you didn't know, androgyny is in!! I love the "act like a lady, but dress like a man" trend. I usually wear menswear inspired looks on dreary days, or days when I just can't get into my "pretty" mode.
The trend allows for more relaxed clothes, thicker materials (which is great for colder months), and usually more muted colors. With this look, I opted to keep a colorful palette, while keeping the overall feel of the outfit really relaxed. Paired with my new, shorter haircut, I felt a bit too boyish, so of course I added a little glam with some makeup and dramatic earrings.

Do You Dare??

Who are you wearing? One of the most asked questions on the red carpet. One of the most heard response is Guiseppe Zanotti (or simply Guiseppe, as young Hollywood celebs are referring to the hot designer).
Guiseppe is one of the most innovative and unique shoe designers out right now. His designs are constantly replicated in mainstream stores. From the coveted bow sandal, to the heeless wedges, his creations inspire so many companies.
The heeless wedge was one of the most replicated designs seen in fast fashions retailers like Forever21, ASOS, Jeffrey Campbell. I finally broke down and purchased a pair. I like them but I'm sure they will not be a staple piece in my wardrobe. This style will be here today and gone tomorrow, so I went the cheap route when I decided to join the heeless wedge bandwagon and purchased mine from Bakers.

What do you think about the sculptured heel/ heeless wedge trend? Has the market been saturated with this trend? Is it time to retire it? Do you dare to wear??

Model Behavior

From time to time, I dabble in some print work. This was one of those few occasions. I was approached by a family friend to do a photo shoot for her portfolio. It was a wonderful experience! I got to catch up with an old friend, meet some amazing people, and got a new hairstyle that I LOVE! Here is a little behind the scene footage of the prep and the shoot. Enjoy!
