Trends: Full Skirt

Wearing: Top:Forever 21| Skirt:Thrfited| Sterling Silver Watch:Vintage

Today, I decided to wear my full skirt I purchased from Plato’s Closet in February . Full skirts are an easy transition into the Fall season. The color coral is definitely a go to color this season. It adds a color of pop to any outfit. The blue polkadot lsharedwith a sprinkle of color block catches the attention of many onlookers. Although fall is vastly upon us, the color coral is a go to color for this fall. When I am unable to find a casual dress to wear I resort to my full skirts. Full skirts can be easily paired with a solid/patterned top or cardigan for those wintery days ahead of us. Yes, pencil skirts are my first love for the office but if I want to appear put together for those last minute plans I can never go wrong with full skirts.

Reasons To Try It

Full skirts have so much versatility. You can wear it with almost anything from vintage pumps to those multi-colored flats. It really compliments those girls with curves.

How to Wear it

Full skirts helps emphasize the waist line. Pair it with a belt, blouse or soft 3/4 cardigan anytime throughout the year. What is your favorite way to style a full skirt.

Mara Hruby- Her Vintage Style


I have………

been writing about Mara Hruby for a couple of months now every since I read an article about her style on CurlyNikki.com. Her vintage style is one thing that stood out to me. Her style appears so chic yet effortless and it helps that I am a lover of all things vintage. Outside of incorporating Bruno Mars style(Ray Bans, Converse & Fedoras) in my wardrobe I started this year with incorporating vintage style in my wardrobe.

This year is focus on self-expression and breaking all the rules.  How different would you be if you was brave enough to dress like you wanted?  How much do we allow the media and fashion critics to play a role in our daily wardrobe?


her makeup is flawless

she makes her own accessories. love it!

1.Become aware of your thoughts

Through awareness alone, you can begin to transmute your reality and transform lies into truth. Actively acknowledge that there is no inherent truth in the belief that you need to change something about yourself in order to be attractive. Consider that you can start feeling beautiful immediately, in this moment, without changing a single thing.

2.Set an intention to see Beauty
Setting an intention is simple: intend to create a different reality for yourself. Here are some examples:
I intend to experience my inherent beauty. Or: I intend to see my beauty and perfection at all times.

3. Take a “Meditation Moment”
Meditation is the mental equivalent of brushing your teeth. This means that it is an essential and indispensable daily activity designed to help rest and rejuvenate your body, cleanse your psyche, awaken your spirit, and help you live a life that you love.

Nourish yourself with instant meditation moments throughout the day.

4. Your Body is Your Best Friend
Your human body is your truest ally. Befriend it and it will serve you tirelessly.Treat it as you would a dear friend:

Feed your body with healthy food, taking the time to give it proper nourishment. Remember to exercise, and make it enjoyable. Anything to get your body moving will do wonders. Relaxation is key. In our harried and hurried world, it is essential that you remember to relax and rejuvenate.

5.Create Meaningful Moments
Every day is filled with countless tasks and errands: going to work, talking with friends, picking up the kids, supporting your significant other, washing dishes, going to the gym, visiting the supermarket, shopping – on and one it goes.  Remember that you can imbue each moment with meaning. It can be as simple as smiling at everyone you meet, reacting with compassion and love instead of anger, or making sure to tell your friends and loved ones how much you care about them.

6.You’re Smoking Hot, Inside Out
Remember, you were born beautiful. Believing that you are unattractive is a learned habit. You can unlearn it and discover the Joy, Peace, and Love that are your natural state and birthright!

So that is it –  6 simple steps to start feeling beautiful, right now, in this moment. You don’t have to go anywhere or do anything to experience the Beauty that you already are

First Look Of 2012: All Things Vintage -Mara Hruby Inspired

yesterday, as i was getting dressed i convinced myself wearing sequins was the thing to wear since it is the celebration of the New Year, right?….. WRONG!…. although, i felt i  had a clear idea of what I wanted to wear:sequins, black, shimmer, all that good jazz-I felt the desperation to seek inspiration and i found a video: Mara Hruby- a songstress from California with a vintage flair i admired….which inspired me to fu@king dump the typical “new year style” and follow my heart: all things vintage.

as i continue to watch the video from beginning to the end, i began to cry..why? i have no idea but now i am more than convinced i have found my new found love: all things vintage….i love her hair, her style, her accessories, last but certainly not least, her voice.

never can go wrong with a pencil skirt and the color yellow

one thing I like most about vintage is the times when it seems there were worries…

a tailored attire, bobby-pin and roller set hair style and casual dating seem to have been the only concerns… vintage screams simplicity.

for me, 2012 represents a new discovery, a new journey..a new love…. and i am happy i was inspired by Mara Hruby for my New Year vintage inspired outfit……..


take a peek at her video and let me know what you think.
