Next Train to Paris

I’ve decided that I’m going to do a series of posts about a certain city in the world, and choose one fashion piece that represents the city and all of its glory. Today, I’ve set my eyes on Paris, France. With majestic gardens, antique charm, and a nick name that has the word love in it, Paris is most certainly a charmingly girly city. So, I’ve chosen these Channel earrings to represent Paris.

Beautiful, aren’t they? They might be a slight splurge, but just see all of the outfits they go with! They remind me of Paris mostly because of their shape: the rose. Roses and Paris go will together considering they both are associated  most commonly with romance.

My first outfit was meant for the Louvre museum in Paris. I thought it was very classical, but also weirdly kind of modern: just like the Louvre. It is made up of the earrings, an Abercrombie dress, and Gucci heels.

Next, I made up an outfit for strolling through downtown Paris. It involves the new trend of solid red plus navy stripes. It’s breezy and casual, prefect for a day of sightseeing. It is made of a Hollister shirt, the earrings, Polyvore heels, and a Mod Cloth skirt.

Finally, I made an outfit for the highlight of The City of Love, the Eiffel Tower. It’s super classic and sophisticated the ideal outfit for this architectural wonder. It’s made up of a H&M blazer, H&M shoes, Joe’s jeans, and the earings.

Anyways, I hope you liked this post, and will check next week for the next destination: New York, New York.

Until next time…

Magnetic nail polish

Yes, they do make such a thing.

No, magnets don’t stick to your nails after you use it. Darn! That could have been so cool! Oh well, it still looks awesome! You can get it at Sephora for $16. That may seem expensive, but it’s well worth it! I had seen it in a magazine and thought it was an interesting concept, but didn’t think much of it. I was at the mall a couple days ago and it randomly poped into my head. I headed to Sephora and asked about it; the sales lady took me straight to it. She tested it on my nails while I stood there listening intently to what she was explaining to do. She instructed me to apply a light coat, let it dry slightly, then apply a heavy coat and position the magnet in the cap over my nail. She lifted up the magnet and gasped. It looked so cool!

This is what it looks like on,

Pretty cool huh? Also, you can customize it by operating the magnet different ways! Another bonus, it dries super fast and looks like a pro did it once it’s dry. It comes in a couple of different colors, but they’re all dark because of the iron.

I’m still kind of bummed that don’t attract magnets, but whatever.

Until next time…

Nautical breezes

Bright stripes, rope belts, boat shoes, and chinos are the new face of the spring/summer season. What’s great about this style is that it’s super versatile; with a couple of accessories the same shirt and pants can be a different outfit! I found a couple shirts that are the prefect example of this sailing sense of style:

Preppy navy stripes are a must for nautical style! Plus a bonus! All of these shirts are from H&M, so they won’t hurt your wallet.

Then, I went on a hunt to find the best accessories! I found the yellow boat shoes at Sperry’s, the espadrilles came from Rocket Dog, the anchor necklace from Tommy Hilfiger, the Fedora at Forever 21, the sandals from Rocket Dog, and the clutch at Rue 21.

Finally I set to work to create outfits with them!

Ta-da! I hope this gave you some inspiration, and got you in the mood for the warm weather right around the bend!

Great Pairs!

Some things just belong together! Usually they’re things you would never expect to go together that make the best pairs. There of lots of examples like this when it comes to fashion. Here are some of my favorite examples:

Pair 1

 Personally, this is one of my favorite combos. I always like to use light and dark colors to create contrast, so this outfit is perfect! Add dark jeans and cute boots to complete this awesome look!

Pair 2

 To me, black and white simply scream for vivid and interesting jewelry in crazy colors. I also love how versatile a little black dress can be. With a pair of soft colored heels it can be sophisticated, or with neon jewelry it can be fun!

Pair 3

I love stripes and glittery anything! Together they create a unique way to make a statement. Mix them up! A glitzy purse looks great with plaid shorts, or a sequin covered sweatshirt look great with a striped head-band.

Any ways, I hope you enjoyed these tips.

Until next time…
