Get the Look!





It’s TIME for some Color.

Here is your chance to personalize your fashion. You make your very own fashion statement in a big way. And it’s extremely easy.

Adding a splash of color around your wrist is a mega trend write now. Watches and bracelets are found in every color of the rainbow. The more bold the color; the trendier it is.

Like my sunglasses, I like to switch up my watches day to day. And I am able to do this is a very inexpensive, personalized way.




So here’s what I did…

I bought a cheap leather watch from Wal-mart, and cut the straps off. I had ordered different colored nylon straps online and replaced the bland leather with trendy colors. Now the watch can match or not match every item and my closet. This has definitely protected me from getting sucked in by those shiteous shape bracelets.

If you don’t want to make it yourself, there are plenty of other cool watches in crazy colors to choose from. Be bold, and try something crazy.

Get The Look!

Try the geek look, and for cheap!




Geek it out.


It’s back to school time, well not for me anymore. But many students are getting ready to start hitting the books again. You know what that means… the mall and Wal-mart will be unbearably crowded for the next few weeks. Get ready to fight for the last pair of those buy-one-get one shoes.

But if you do venture out into the warzone, you might want to think about adding a new style to your wardrobe. Add a little bit of class… and nerd. Yes, it is officially cool to be a nerd, or at least look like one. “Nerd chic” has invaded Hollywood and the fashion industry.

The current must-have Hollywood accessory is a pair of thick-framed glasses. Everyone is wearing them. Celebs want to let you know that they can be nerds too (even though they ditched school to make their millions). The popularity of shows like The Office and Glee and the Apple takeover further propelled the geeky new trend.



Don’t worry; dressing in full geek to rock the trend is not required. But the addition of some plaid garments or a fedora hat (as previously mentioned) would take you to the sexy side. This look is pretty much for everyone. No astigmatism is required.

To Fedora or not to Fedora?


Since I’ve moved down to Miami (about 3 months ago), there is one trend that took over the beach faster than the cast of Jersey Shore. Amongst all the Ed Hardy, string bikinis and Ray Bans, one fashion trend is completely unavoidable. South Beach has been taken over by storm, and I’m not sure if I’m ready.


The original fedora hat has gotten makeover and it has become the hottest summer accessory. Made of straw-like material, the hat is perfect for the outdoors and of course the beach. But is it wearable for everyday attire? Does it only work in tropical places, like Miami?  As a new “Miami-an” these are the questions I can’t quite seem to answer… well not yet.

Of course the celeb world has eaten this trend all up. Justin, Britney, Crack-han, Gwen Stefani, Jessica Alba, Zefron, RiRi, Reese and pretty much every other tabloid darling has rocked a fedora over the past few months. But what works for them doesn’t always work for us real people.  

 


On a shopping trip this past weekend, I tried on my first straw fedora. And it wasn’t terrible. Actually, I kind of liked it. And, it was only about $10. I’m just not sure if I should take the leap of faith and make the purchase. I’m not sure if this is a look I can pull off. So I want to know what you think. How do you feel about this trend? Do you own one of these hats? Should I jump on this trend-wagon? Let me know what you think by answering the poll!

If you like this trend, check out the hat below!

Invasion of the Shape Bracelets!

Okay, so this blog is all about the latest trends in fashion and pop culture. But, there is a recent trend that needs to be addressed, and stopped ASAP. It's the invasion of the shape bracelets, and it's taking over the world quicker than Bieber Fever.

Perhaps you may have seen them; they come in all of the colors of the rainbow and in any shape imaginable. Birds, cats, dolphins, baseball hats, ice cream cones, deer, lips, palm trees, it's endless, really. They are little more than a curved color rubber band. But somehow they have taken over the fashion world.

 
Don't worry, that is not my hand.


So I'll let them slide when an 11 year-old-girl wears them, but when they appear at work (a top 20 ad agency) it is completely unacceptable. And yes, even guys wear them (convenient designs for your favorite football team).

Please, I beg you, (if you're reading this) resist the urge to put one of these hideous things on your wrist.  Save the $3 - $5 and buy a Cosmo or GQ or a McCafe. Please pass this post along, and hopefully we can preserve America's beauty.
