STYLING: SLIPDRESS

The major ’90s throwback piece has been making a comeback and I couldn’t be happier. The weightless dress is a great go-to clothing item for anything from a casual day out in the city to a date night. The silhouette created by a slip dress will truly make a statement if you style it right.SLIPDRESS

STYLING: HOODIES

I must admit that I have lately been embracing a more Normcore style. Choosing casual and plain looking jeans, hoodies and tops over flamboyant pieces. Now some shriek when they hear the word “Normcore” fearing that it would become an unfortunate fad, which it did. However, when you are a young individual on a budget and constantly on the go there is really no time to deliberate on ritzy getups. HOODIES

STYLING: WINTER WEATHER

Depending on where you live the winter weather will continue for a while longer, and unfortunately some of you may experience an over abundance of snow. If you want to enjoy the chilly temperature while keeping warm a faux fur coat can do the job. I have always been an advocate against the use of real animal fur, and will never agree with its use. Stella McCartney, who never fails to impress me, took the initiative a while back to introduce her ‘Fur-free-Fur’ creations, which offer an array faux fur coats. Hopefully this effort with help push other designers to join the faux fur bandwagon. WINTER BLIZZARD

Styling: New Year’s Eve Party

I am a firm believer that sparkly, sequin dresses are appropriate during a single occasion: New Year’s Eve. It is finally the time to bring out your radiating side in order to bring in the new year. However, you should avoid going over the top gaudy as it can cheapen your look. Happy Holidays, and may this new year bring you nothing less than the best.NYE PARTY

AUTUMN/WINTER FRAGRANCE: MY BURBERRY

An outfit inspired by a perfume. That is exactly what I did here with the My Burberry perfume by Burberry. The iconic fashion house is the epitome of British history and are best known for their trench coats and checkered patterns. The mesmerizing deep richness of the perfume has a strong, yet calming effect. Although it is a more mature scent, the floral tones keep it from being too overwhelming. The long lasting fragrance should surely be on the top of your list of winter fragrances.
