How to be Fall Look Appropriate: Beautiful Neutrals

October 5, 2016

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

It has been a while since last time we talked. Unfortunately, about 3 months ago, Matt got into an accident that caused 35 percent burnt on his body and seven surgeries in 40 days. Our home was room 824 at the burn center for a while, 48 days to be exact, so with that non-chosen lifestyle, writing a blog was impossible especially when my photographer was lying in bed. Thankfully those days are over and we are doing great. I found a new part-time job that I like a lot, and the hours work perfectly with my blog and school schedule. I must say life has been great since we are out of the hospital and super thankful for all those little things we used to take for granted.

Okay enough of him and I, Let’s talk about what we always love to talk about.

The first week of October is the hardest time of the season. We have to go through our wardrobe every day for hours to find the right outfit to wear. The sad part is that we are in the fall spirit, but our clothes are still too heavy to wear. Also, we like to minimize wearing very bright colors since it’s not Spring/ Summer anymore. I would say having some neutral colors in your wardrobe would go a long way with you. Go to your closet, separate the neutral colors from the bright ones, and start making different outfits with the basics you have on the neutral side.

  • NEUTRALS:

They include different shades of brown, Black, White, and gray. Neutral colors can blend in with other colors or match with all colors and color combinations. Therefore,you will find it easier to create several different outfits with them without extra thinking. If you are on a tight budget, I would suggest investing most of the money towards collecting good neutral garments. They tend to last longer in your closet and with current trends.

I have always admired fall. It really is a second spring with all the colorful leaves falling on the ground. They both are the revolutionary season; spring is a new beginning and autumn is a new start or last chance to be reformed. If you looking for a great fall vacation destination, I would recommend going to Colorado in October. It’s just magically beautiful. All you see is mountains full with different color trees. Well, now you know where I got my inspiration from for this look. I have become a big fan of this russet orange/ mustard orange color since last fall. It reminds me of maple leaves in fall. Mustard Orange is a very rich color with a strong foundation, so I prefer to stay with the neutral family and mix it with nude shoes and bag.

I like showing my midriff when I’m wearing high-waist pants or skirts, so if you are like me try to invest in some good quality neutral crop tops. I promise it will be one of those pieces that you always have something to wear with.

I have worn this A.L.C crop top all year around with all sort of pants and skirts. The same story with these pants, you name any kind of tops and I paired it with. Therefore, I wrapped up the look by layering some of my gold accessories.

I hope you enjoyed this look.

$ALE! The Best of The season

June 22, 2016

Wednesday…

Uhmm, I guess we all deserve some online shopping therapy rather than working considering we made it to this point of the week. After All it is the $ale Season, Ladies. It means go make those credit cards payments and start from scratch because we all love paying the 28% interest (But, seriously, Don’t listen to me because most of the time watching your money sitting in the bank is more satisfying than having some art pieces on your feet :|).

BUT,

If you’ve been saving up for this time of the year, and you like to add some good investment to your closet, I will be on the same boat with you Sister. Before I show You what I’ve been craving to buy, I would like to share some tips of $ALE SHOPPING. Don’t forget these are all from my personal experiences through eight years of working in this field, and I’m not trying to claim any expertise.

First:

I know it is a great season to shop, but my personal advise to you would be go on that vacation if you have to choose between shopping and traveling because there always be something that we need to buy and never ends. Summer has been known for its amazing vacations and adventures. Plus, to me, nothing will beat the education that You would gain when you’re traveling to a new place. Honestly, absorbing different cultures and the feeling of sun touching your skin on different sides of the world is way more rewarding than walking with the $2000 purse, which was purchased on Sale, around the neighborhood.

You know what I mean!

Serious Girl-to-Girl Talk…

Please, please don’t go and spend 80 percent of your paycheck on a pair of shoes just because X’s husband bought her a Saint Laurent Bag as an anniversary gift, and you just have to have it. Trust me, Safe to say as a Fashion Design student, who reads and watches all fashion history and documentaries on regular basis, and working with all sorts of clients, people can distinguish between a person who buys clothes because she genuinely loves them versus who just buys them to keep up with “The Rich Kids of Beverly Hills” although there is no money in her pockets after the big purchase. So, as I said before, Don’t shop for other people or even yourself, shop for your closet.

Second:

Before typing the store website on the tool bar, make sure you are paid all the bills that needed to be paid. Then, Set a certain budget due to your financial situation because if you don’t set it, you will end up filling up your shopping cart with all great items that would cost more than your yearly salary. It might sound funny, but I’ve seen people in this situation where they don’t have the money and they end up getting loan in order to buy the clothes. You know what I always compare this budget thing to? Have you guys ever heard of someone saying, “Never go grocery shopping Hungry”? Well, at least in my case, shopping without budget is very similar as when I go to the grocery store hungry; I grab all carbs and chocolate existed on the racks of the checkout line while I’m waiting in line to purchase my actual grocery.
As I’m walking towards the sales rack, I have a same feeling as if I am Five years old again walking to a toys store full of Barbies. YES, I wanted them all no matter how many Barbies or barbie’s house and furniture I owned. The obsession got to the point that when I was nine I made a pact with myself to marry a guy who owns a Barbie store when I grow up, after unboxing my original Pocahontas Barbie that I waited patiently for about 2 years to buy….
My first $ale stop is always the shoes. It is one of the categories that I can digest quickly to splurge a good amount of money on since I was a kid. After all “ Give a Girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Marilyn Monroe. Usually my budget would vary depending on the shoes style, but I would say it is around $500. I KNOW. I know that could be a lot of money for a pair of shoes on SALE, but some of these shoes that we consider as an investments were originally more than $1000. That is when I should emphasize again that please buy them for your wardrobe. Make Sure they go with different looks that you have in your closet.

Third:

If you are tight on money, but you are dying to have a great pair of nude heels, put them in your shopping cart but don’t buy them as soon as they go on sale because 25% off would not do much for you. Wait until it goes down to at least 50% OFF, then go ahead and purchase them. Well, if they’re gone, don’t go crazy and be angry at your life just because you couldn’t buy them. Remember, we live in a marketing world, and they will always be something cooler waiting for you.
From my experience working at two different luxury stores, the best time of shopping would be around 4th of July. Even though the sales start in May, usually the month of July is the last chance that people can put their hands on the items as Neiman Marcus calls “ The Last Call”. As it says briefly, it is the last call or final sale for who are bargain shoppers and enjoy going through all the racks for six hours straight without a lunch break. Well, It is a Shopping Marathon Month for god sakes.
My Second $ale stop would be The Handbag and accessories department. At this stage, if I don’t find any shoes that I need (rarely happens, uhhm just lied, never happens), I would set an average budget of $600 for handbags depending on the style. As far as accessories go, I like to not spend lots of money on them. For example, the maximum budget I have for a belt is around high $200 unless it’s an unique piece that goes with lots of garments in my closet.
