I love monochramatic looks are all neutral colors with something crazy like a awesome pumps like these are a bold lip to pull the look together. For some reason I prefer prints to be on my feet? and love pieces that are unique but plain in color. I like to look for awesome shapes but like a beautiful bag or my shoes to do the talking so to speak! Just what I have always tend to gravitate too and the above is no exception.

Just a quick post on nice comparisons, a girl loves a deal!

All the more expensive items are from topshop and the cheaper versions are from forever 21. I know that forever 21 is fast fashion but you just can’t beat that they have some of the best prices. Not to mention they make descent look a likes in fashion. I typically aim to buy shoes and bags that will last longer. I noticed that I would buy whatever and get bored really quick not to mention the quality doesn’t always last. So I typically will spend more on jeans, shoes and bags. I don’t mind cheap (using that word loosely) clothes from smaller or bigger retail chains. I guess all in all what I am trying to say is I can appreciate the cheap and finer things in life.

Well until next time, XOXO Sophia

Oscars 2012

When I look at the oscar dresses I try my hardest to remain neutral and not choose something because everybody else does, I always think that they are way to hard when they judge these ladies but I will chose my favorite and least favorite of the night. I am going to put them in order from my favorite to least.

This weeks TOP 5

These are my top 5 picks of the week, they will mainly be fashion but not always and will be anything that I like or inspires me.

1.Pin Board is a virtual pinboard that let’s you organize things you love. I accidently came across it and since then have been back on every day looking for inspirational motivation and uplifting words. You have to send a request to be invited but after you do you can organize almost anything from food, fashion or inspirational words. You can always just search for what your looking for and browse without signing up.

2. Etsy.com, is a online shop that lets you buy or sell basically or almost anything handmade such as clothing and crafts. I love this website, they have so many unique one of a kind items that you will most likely not see any where else.

3.Heels.com is a online shoe retailer, that sells obviously heels, they carry a variety of brands but what I love about them is that they have a video of every shoe being worn/displayed with video. This can help you decide if you really want them since you can see what they look on feet.

4.BodyRock.tv this may not be new to many people but for those of you who haven’t heard of their online movement for at home fitness, I find it inspirational (just alone that they are superbly in shape) but they also seem to genuinley love what they do. I have tried their workouts and they are challenging but none the less are note worthy and work!

5. John Lennon’s song IMAGINE (What a wonderful concept) lately his works and message to the World has truly inspired me to not only educate myself but also to do more in this World and to live my life without boundries.

How to wear bright colors

With a wide range of colors available in clothing I find that sometimes a plethora of colors can at times be intimidating and challenging to put together. I have had a lot of people ask me how to wear certain colors together which is why I decided to give some examples on how to wear them. We maybe not to want to wear it because we don’t think we will look good in it or also it might be we are not sure of how to wear a certain color or piece. And lastly you might be afraid of running the risk of looking like barney or an easter egg in doing so. If you are one of those individuals who is afraid of wearing bright colors and appearing to loud there are ways to incorporate colors without being over the top, unless that’s your thing (as I do).

  1. By pairing a bright color with generally lighter colors you can create a beautiful color palette that looks effortless and beautiful.
  2. By choosing one piece with color as your focal point you can wear a range of colors without being over the top.
  3. My suggestion is that if you like your legs then chose to wear your jeans as the focal point or vise versa if you don’t want to highlight your legs you can choose a top as the focal point, hand bag or shoes.

Here are a few examples I came up with, all the outfits I found are from top shop.

Hope you guys enjoy, Cheers!

Fashion Trends Spring 2012

Spring is on the verge of arriving and while Fall is my favorite season, I must say I am extremely excited for Spring 2012 trends to arrive. From a range of beautiful colors, bold patterns and feminine details you will be as excited as me to see whats in store. I loved so many of the designers lines however if I had to choose my favorite it would be Givenchy, I loved the manipulation and use of fabrics with some of the designs but on the other hand they also managed a sleekness, simplicity and femininity in their tailoring. Hope you guys enjoy as I did!
