#FF 90s Nostalgia

I am sure you have noticed by now that the 90s is making a comeback, from the sweaters and sweatsuits to the shoes, the 90s are definitely back! With that being said, of course a bunch of companies will be making some of their own products to stay in the know. Guess, Reebok, and Champion have all already been making it especially with the help of promoting by top celebrities.

Esprit, a brand that you may have overlooked at one point is definitely one to watch now:

Definitely loving the pastel colors and the stripes! How about you guys? What are your favorites?

#FF Supreme X MJ

sxmj

Now if at first thought, you thought of MJ like Michael Jackson than you are right! Looks like there are some teases that Supreme will be doing a collaboration with the great Michael Jackson! I did not know this but Supreme has done something like this before, like with Muhammed Ali.

The collection should include hoodies and tees! So far from what I have seen, looks like they are taking a few pics of MJ and are putting them in the center of their tees and hoodies. As soon as I find out more I will be updating you ladies and gents!

Art + Fashion = LV x JK

If you love art and you love fashion then you will love this new collab of Louis Vuitton and Jeff Koons called “Masters”. Jeff Koons is an artist who

“has brought imagery from his long-standing ‘Gazing Ball’ painting – a series of large-scale hand painted reproductions of works by the Old Masters – to a range of Louis Vuitton products”

fragonard

This collection features purses,, totes, and even book bags with Classical paintings such as the all-time famous Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci (c 1503-1506) , Wheatfield With Cypresses by Vincent Van Gogh (c 1889) , The Tiger Hunt by Peter Paul Rubens (c 1615-1616), Mars, Venus and Cupid by Titian (c 1546) , and Young Girl Playing With Her Dog by Jean-Honoré Fragonard (c 1770).

How much will one of these bags sent you back? Prices ranges from $585 to $4000.

Making it easy to shop for Coachella!

banner

Yes Coachella (short for Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival) is near and although I will not be attending I am excited for those that will be! The exact dates? First week is from April 14th-April 16th! + The second weekend is from April 21st-April 23rd! Where? At the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Cali.

You may have already heard some bad news like Queen Bey possibly opting out because of the twins of course! I mean she is an amazing performer but come on performing while holding two growing babies!? But there are also going to be other great artists/performers like Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga!

Hearing the words: music festival may mean different things to different people same goes for dressing for it! You ladies now that I am everything Fashion so I will be talking about different options of how to dress (makeup will be in another article) for the famous Coachella! TBH I cannot fit everything in one or even couple of articles because honestly the possibilities are endless! You can go for a “rocker look” or a “bohemian look” or a “sporty look.” Just like you are going to Coachella to have a great time, you should also have fun with your outfits!

I have gone to plenty of different music festivals myself but more of EDC festivals! [] I made sure to have fun while choosing an outfit because if you have been to any king of music festival before than you know that you can pretty much wear anything! Don’t believe me? Wait until you see for yourself lol

Firstly, I make sure that I am dressing for the weather. Since Coachella is being in California and its going to hit the 90s! (Yes I checked! Up to 92 in the first weekend and 89 the high in the second weekend.) I am sure you are going to want to ultimately stay cool. With these temps I would dress lightly. You can find great little dresses and outfits at Forever 21 (they have a great “Festival Shop“) and H&M. I’m not sure if you remember but I wrote about H&M’s campaign with Coachella? Well H&M still loves Coachella! You can find all their items by clicking here! Fashion Nova also has a great selection in their “Festival” menu. You also have another one of my favorite companies of all time: ASOS who have a “Festival Essentials” section just for you! A recent favorite for me, Boohoo also have a “Festival Accessories & Festival Fashion” section. Even GUESS has “The Festival Shop” with apparel and accessories that can satisfy any look you are going for!

I am sure you have been the mirrored lenses all over the net and on some celebrities. There have even been modern goggles on a few. Accessories such as these along with gypsy jewelry and chokers are all great additions to your Coachella outfit! In each of the links I have provided above you will be able to find these and even more ideas to make your outfit festival ready!

Ever wanted that SnapChat filter to take with you?!?! Urban Outfitters (can’t forget about this one!) actually has it! & for just $18 I don’t see why I can’t get one just to have it lol (click pic)scfilter

Just to throw even more ideas that you will definitely see all over:

DENIM | METALLIC VIBES | SHADES

#FF LV X SUPREME!

So the rumors were true! They debuted on the runway during its fall 2017 men’s runway show just yesterday!

lvxs

For those that have always followed Supreme,  it has become the IT streetwear and now to see that they are making it big with this collabo, its a great thing to watch! Kim Jones, creative director at Louis Vuitton, called Supreme “a massive global phenomenon” and rightfully so.

Below are a few teases, and yes I say teases because come on, who would not want these accessories?! Yes this LV X Supreme collabo seems to cater more to accessories than apparel for now anyway (you never know what else may come out 😉 ) Quote me if you want to but you will see these all over the internet and selling platforms because people are going to be losing their minds over them!

So the answer to the question that I know you are all asking, when are they releasing them?! Bad and good? We have to wait til this summer!  It is said to be dropping on Monday, July 17th so make sure to mark your calendars!

New Ways to wear your Hair *hair flip*

If you like to wear your hair up, grab a hair clip & no, not those regular ol hair clips but the new ones that have made their way on the runways (Adam Selman’s show) Chris Habana has changed the way you will be seeing them. First, he oversized them and made then neon metallic. On these models they just grabbed their hair, made knots in the front, and pinned these cool, bright accessories.

IMG_0735

Would you ladies also try these outspoken pins?

You can get this pair at AshleyWilliamsLondon.com for $79

You can actually make your own, worded however you want, with this customized site, click here! & of course also try to look up at Etsy, there are lots of overlooked talented people on Etsy!

If you’re like me you may be looking for other ways to wear your hair down other than the good old “wearing it down.” There are great accessories to wear like these below:

Unfortunately, I currently do not have long hair. I made a hair transformation for my birthday so I am currently rockin the lob haircut. But when my hair gets to the length I used to have it, I will definitely want to try these out even if people may stop wearing them! How versatile and chic are these belt hair ties!? Wearing these belt ties with straightened hair makes this look an even more sleeker one don’t ya think?

You can find these at Tibi.com for $65 each (they are actually selling fast!) but I will be looking up ones that look the same but in better prices! If you are interested in these just text me directly at the number below :) You can also try using the same belt that are in these pics, I think almost everyone must own one! Or if not & you want a smaller one try a kids size lol hey you know that Fashion takes experimenting 😉

#AccessoryTuesday Mini Bags

Remember how I started a thing with Tuesdays, the way I have #MakeupMondays or #ManicureMondays and #ThrowbackThursdays? Welll, I want to continue #AccessoryTuesday…

This Tuesday I want to remind you of the IT bag this summer! I don’t know about you ladies but unless I am on my way to the beach with a big tote back with all my things other than that I want to carry as little as possible. These cute mini bags are great just to carry along essentials without adding more heat to yourself!

First I will start with the high ends and then those that were inspired by them:

Recently I have been more into a white summer so first things first, look at this Python Small Lady Dior Bag by Christian Dior!
