I love Jessica Alba’s style…simple yet chic. She definitely knows how to make a fashion statement.

I love the way that she paired this white mesh top and high waisted J Brand skinnies with this soft pink topper and carryall. Her tortoiseshell shades and pink skinny belt are the perfect accessories to complement her look. She topped it off perfectly with these grey Jenni Kayne’s D’Orsay flats*.
*Officially added to my wishlist.

How do you like this look? Yay or Nay?

Happy Friday!

2014 Color of the Year: Radiant Orchid!

20140125-155403.jpg

Pantone, Inc. is the world-renowned authority on color and this year, they have declared Radiant Orchid as “Color of the Year”.

20140125-155508.jpg
Radiant Orchid is the perfect harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones that exudes confidence, happiness, love and health.

It can easily be integrated into your life. In fashion, you can go bold with a dress or a trench coat or it can be as simple as adding a purse, shoes or jewelry. In home decor, you can focus on adding accent chairs, throws, cushions or lamps. In beauty, you can have fun with lips, nails, eyes and even hair accessories.

Need some ideas…

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show Recap!

Last night, one of the biggest and most anticipated fashion shows aired on television and some of the most “fierce” angels took the catwalk strutting an array of colours, crystals, feathers, over the top costumes and of course “angel wings”.

*Side note: Although I may not have the body of a supermodel, I am learning to love my curves…one body part at a time (work in progress). That is why I was able to watch this show with ease (somewhat) and appreciation of what God has blessed me with. #curvyisthenewskinny #backtothispost

Candice Swanepoel opened the show modelling this year’s $10 million dollar fantasy bra, the most expensive one yet.
