Fight the frost with this seductive black & red look


Some fashion experts say that black and red are the opposite and should not go together. Well, here I am again breaking the rules and loving my outfit. Black and red looks flat-footed and obvious during winter time, especially with all this snow.


The combination of these 2 colors mean a lot in a look, red always evokes a physical reaction,  representing stamina, lust, power.  The positive qualities of black are sophistication, glamour, and authority.


Combine those two colors together and you get seduction, you get the “look at me” outfit. I am wearing my favorite pair of leggings, (plain black) with a regular and simple top, my high knee boots and my handmade red scarf with a bright red hat.

I am a bodysuit lover, I have a few in my closet by this one is my favorite by far! Bodysuits are simultaneously sexy and conservative. They are the cure for blouses that won’t tuck in comfortably and t-shirts too boxy for our frames. It seems the ’80s trend is definitely making a comeback.

The best bottom to wear with bodysuits are jeans, boyfriend jeans or ripped jeans go great with this type of bodysuit; since I am on vacation I am wearing flat shoes, but if you are planning to go out, high heels with match perfect too. Jewelry is not too necessary because of the type of bodysuit, but a hat as an accessory makes the look more chic…

Fall Look: Boots and Dress…


A great pair of tall boots are a clothing staple that should be found in every woman’s closet. There are tons of different styles; flats, wedge, heel, over the knee, embellished, pointed toe, round toe and a lot more!


These boots are by far my favorite ones; not only because they are comfortable but also the 2 tones; black and brown – lets me match it with any type of clothing… I also love to wear black, it goes well for a casual or elegant look; In this occasion I chose a plane black weave pattern dress, a nice neckless and of course my favorite boots!

Zoe Saldana now a victim of fashion choice

Zoe Saldana is now coming to realize what being in the public eye can feel like on the negative side of the line. A simple fashion choice of hers has escalated into a controversy. It was ignited when she took the side of Dolce and Gabbana founders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, who drew the ire of same-sex supporters when they made comments against same-sex parenting.

“No! Not at all, that would be the stupidest thing if it affected my fashion choice.”

Zoe responded to the question.

Even though celebrities like Elton John and Ricky Martin have supported a boycott of Dolce and Gabbana, Zoe does not feel that it’s necessary to do so, citing that freedom of speech should not be reversed into a punishment for speaking one’s mind.

“People are allowed to their own opinion. However, I wouldn’t have chosen to be so public about something that’s such a personal thing.” – Zoe

Zoe, whose husband is Italian, and recent mother of twin boys finds the trend of persecuting people for a statement that veers a little from the center of accepted opinions.

“My husband [Marco Perego] is from Italy and if I judged him based on the words that he misuses in our English language, he wouldn’t be here today. It’s like look people, have a drink, relax, it’s OK.” – Zoe

Oscar de La Renta

RIP Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de La Renta
The fashion world has lost one of its greatest, the legendary fashion designer often described as “Sultan of Suave” Dominican born Oscar de la Renta. At the age of 82, he leaves the world with his fashion legacy to enjoy. The cause of his death is still unknown, he was diagnosed with cancer in 2006, but said last year he was “totally clean.”
The Latin fashion icon dressed every first lady since Jacqueline Kennedy, high profile celebrities and royalty stunning in haute couture. As well as making everyday women look elegant and fashionable in his designs.

“The only realities in life are that you are born, and that you die,” he told an audience at New York’s 92Y “Fashion Talks” series in June 2013. “We always think we are going to live forever. The dying aspect we will never accept. The one thing about having this kind of warning is how you appreciate every single day of life.”

Other favorite quotes from the fashion icon Oscar de la Renta.

“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself”

“We live in an era of globalization and the era of the woman. Never in the history of the world have women been more in control of their destiny.”

“The qualities I most admire in women are confidence and kindness.”

“We’re dealing with sophisticated customers. What’s most important to these women is individuality. I have to create things she’ll want to wear, no matter who she is.”

“Every season I am inspired by women.”
