    Fresh White and Blue Summer Style Look 5

    Fresh White and Blue Summer Style Look 5 Fresh White and Blue Summer Style Look 5 is the best of the cold shoulder trend. The cold shoulder trend has been on the rise since 2016, but as with most major trends, it is mostly a remix of trends past. The cold shoulder hails from the mid-1800s, started by designer Charles Frederick Worth. It rose again in the 1960’s when actress Bridget Bardot wore it as more of an off- the-shoulder style, which is why you’ll see some looks called Bardot sleeves. Today, the trend has returned stronger than ever, in part due to changes in climate, nostalgia for the past,…

    Fresh White and Blue Summer Style, Look 4

    Fresh White and Blue Summer Style, Look 4 Fresh White and Blue Summer Style, Look 4 is casual summer style with just a touch of flair. I don’t know about where you are, but it has been extremely hot across the U.S. over the last few weeks. In the upper Midwest, we’ve been enjoying 90-degrees and up, along with several summer storms to go with the heat. When it’s this hot, denim jeans are the last thing you want to wear; but jeans are also a staple of casual summer style. I was surprised to find that these Zara jeans, which I picked up on sale a few weeks ago,…

    On Trend Summer 2017: Color Bright

    ON TREND SUMMER 2017: COLOR BRIGHT It’s a new month and June is all about the contrast between bright summer colors and toning it down with just a pop of color. In our On Trend Summer 2017 Color Bright Look, we start with bright contrast colors, then, reusing an element from the bright look, tone it down for a more neutral pop of summer color. Without further ado, today’s bright and bold look is so bubblegum school girl. This is a call back to the 90’s with the letterman style jacket and neon colors. The 90’s are back in fashion right now as millennials come of age and seek nostalgia…

    Wedding Guest Fashion Guide for the 21st Century Girl

    Wedding Guest Fashion Guide for the 21st Century Girl (edited) The rules for wedding attire are numerous: don’t wear white; don’t wear black; look nice, but not too nice; wear this style for a spring wedding; wear that style for a fall wedding. . .  By the time you’ve finished studying wedding attire etiquette, dressing for a wedding can feel beyond complicated. Worse still, even with all of the advice available to us for what to wear, much of it seems so last century, written for a 1950’s homogeneous audience of the Gidget variety. Weddings have evolved. There are destination weddings, adventure weddings, themed weddings. This is the 21st Century.…

    Short and Lacy

    Always Uttori Spring Shorts, Look 3. Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend. On today’s post, we’re continuing with the Always Uttori spring shorts looks. While it was really chilly when this photo was taken, we’ve finally, finally made it to warmer weather. Of course, Hong Kong boasts a subtropical climate, so shorts as a staple is a possibility, though I’ve rarely seen shorts on anyone but tourists and students. The great thing about this look is that it is minimalist and classic and can be dressed up with heels for an evening party, or be styled more casually with sandals for a fun beach look. Oh For Fashion’s Sake! Shirt:…
