Spring/Summer 2011 has been pretty interesting as far as prints go. My all time fav is Leopard animal print and this trend has been around for a while now. The popularity of Leopard prints seems to have really taken off since Fall 2010 and are going to be around through Summer 2011! Here are a few pieces I will be rockin this Season!
I found these Leopard Platform Pumps at a local boutique in L.A. for only $29 :)
I had already had this purse in my handbag collection.
As many of you know Denim is a major staple for Spring/Summer 2011...
AND I'm a major denim/jean junkie..lol! I LOVE jeans...In any way shape or form :)
So, when I came across this article in InStyle about jeans, I loved it and thought I would share it with you all!!
The Ultimate Jean Guide
There's no better way to show off your favorite stilettos than with a pair of slim-cut cropped jeans. Wear this polished style with a tailored jacket like Blake Lively's Smythe blazer or, for a dressier look, pair them with a pretty blouse like Cameron Diaz.
Eva Longoria and Penelope Cruzknow that a classic boot-cut jean is always in style. The flattering cut works on all body types. Wear them with other closet classics like a crisp oxford shirt or a slimming tuxedo jacket.
The freshest denim trend right now is crisp white jeans. Wear them with a floral top like Kate Bosworthor a blush colored top like Amanda Seyfried.
Play it like Jessica Alba and Kim Kardashian and add instant curves in jeans with a higher waistline. Highlight the style—and length to your legs—with a tucked-in top and bold belt.
Trouser jeans are the perfect combination of comfort and polish. Take a cue from Kelly Ripa and wear yours with a bright top and blazer. For a more casual look, try pairing them with a simple striped tank like Ashley Greene.
Bonus: the wider cut makes your legs look miles long!
Stovepipe jeans have become a closet classic thanks to versatility. This is the one style that works with, well, everything in your closet. Wear them during the day like Rachel Bilson or for a night out like Vanessa Hudgens.
We’ve always envied men for their comfortable clothes, but not anymore! Wear slouchy boyfriend jeans with heels and bold accessories for a style statement like Kim Kardashian and Gwen Stefani or keep it comfy, like Reese Witherspoon, with a tee and sneakers. The trick is to roll the bottoms several times for a cropped length that flatters the baggier style.
Colored denim offers a playful edge to your everyday pieces. For an edgy look, pair them with a leather jacket and platform heels like Khloe Kardashian. Or pair muted pink jeans with a structured beige blazer like Cameron Diaz for a classic and casual weekend outfit.
I first want to start by saying, Thank You! For all of the wonderful emails and comments that I've received asking where I've been and for all of your care and concern! You all are just so amazing!
I've been MIA for a while and for unfortunate health reasons!!
As many of you know if you follow me on my channel or here on my blog in the past I've had health issues for a while....Here's a short version of a long story...
Since about Thanksgiving 2010 I've been battling extreme chronic vertigo and I don't just mean dizzy I mean spinning, bedridden, can't drive, eyes blurred, bad bad vertigo!! I went to the Dr and they said I had had Acute Otitis Media(An infected painful red, bulging eardrum) This went on from November 2010-February 2011 and in February 2011 I was taken by ambulance to the ER. I couldn't breathe, I felt like I was having a heart attack and I was vomiting profusely! I was in the hospital for a while the Dr there said that I had Labyrinthitis(another severe inner ear disorder)
So, they put me on many different meds and sent me home to which I laid bedridden, not able to drive, couldn't focus my eyes on using the computer, and if I walked it was by the help of others, etc!!
Time went on and after many bouts of Antibiotics and many other meds my GP diagnosed me with Menieres Disease(a disorder of the inner ear that can affect hearing and balance. It is characterized by vertigo and tinnitus and progressive hearing loss.)
So, here I sit present day...I am able to focus my eyes a lil better to be able to write and hoping to be on the uphill of this disease! I still battle chronic vertigo every minute of every day. I believe my battle has just begun...I'm going to UCLA to seek specialists for this and still have to have MANY tests that I need done...an MRI, CT Scan, Lab work, and an EEG...etc!!
I miss blogging, I miss making vids, I miss talking to all of you. I have to say this has been quite a struggle for me. I'm very much a get up and go kind of person and this has been debilitating!!!
I'm going to start blogging again and making vids, slowly but surely.....
Thank you, all for your support, care and prayers!! PLEASE continue to keep me in yours, I need all I can get!!!
