Apps for the clothes-minded

Just recently I found another fashion app that I really enjoy. Honestly I have a ton of them but don't really use much except for a couple and since I'm kinda skeptical I wasn't so sure I wanted to download another one of those in my phone, but guess what?! This one is actually fun!!!http://www.clothapp.com/"Cloth is an app for iPhone and iPod touch that makes it easy to save, categorize, and share your favorite outfits. The app also lets you send your favorite outfits to this site, for us to post for the world to see."The cool thing about this app is that it uses your current weather when saving your pics so when you run out of ideas you can browse back and the app gives you choices of what to wear based…

Instagram is definitely one of the best inventions of this decade, along of course with the best technology made to use this awesome little app!

TrendReport: Wear your White Jeans Now and Into Fall!

That old rule about white jeans not being allowed after Labor Day is as out as any other rule, really!For one, white is a very strong color for fall 2012, along with coral and cobalt blue - usually colors you associate with spring. Well, I guess this fall will feel like spring ;) - at least in your eyes.Michael Michael Kors ad campaign is a prime example of the chic and crisp white pant transitioning from fall to winter...And he does it so well with the camel accessories (my favorite way to wear white)! What I love about the styling on this photoshoot is that the girl wears gold or silver accessories and looks great and on trend either way. Proving that you can do it too!!!Here's a video showing 10 different ways you…


My Style Diary: Betina Secchi

   I'm so so glad my sweet Brazilian friend agreed in being a part of my blog by sending us some pictures with her fall picks from her own wardrobe. I met Betina a few months ago in Indy through a friend in common (our "maluquinha" girl Eutemia) and she's just so spontaneous, relaxed and just really happy and full of energy (I mean really!) that we connected right away, it's as if we know each other for years.   Betina is an attorney, who's so much into having fun and playing hard that one couldn't imagine a girl so pretty, funny and witty can also be soooo freaking smart! She's definitely an inspiration to empower women to be true to themselves no matter what, in the end she's a girl's best friend who always…

LookBook: The high and low military look

   These pics were taken a few weeks ago without me knowing about the edgy trends...well I guess that's why I do what I do ;)   This idea is to mix the fancier fabrics with the military "worn-out" piece (in this case, a denim shirt). I like to cinch my waist so add a bold belt and finish the look with girly accessories. It adds a personal touch.   Keep in mind this outfit was worn during summer time, for fall I suggest a heavier dress made of wool or velvet to maintain the chic aesthetic and still be playful, even a thick pair of tights with ankle booties will do it!Gold mullet pleated dress, H&M; denim shirt, Ralph Lauren; gladiator military green heels, Shutz. Beijos,

TrendReport: From the runways to the streets…

   The fall runways are full of richness, whether is the color, fabric, textures or accessories they all scream LUXE! And being fall my fave season I can't wait to share some of my must-haves!   1. The Military; this trend comes and goes and it's a good idea to have a nice military inspired piece always around. I love the rough and the soft together and this trend is so easy to play with. The new fresh way to wear it is accompanied by very feminine and romantic pieces, such as ruffles and peplums! Burberry Prorsum had the best interpretation of this yet:Gotta love the bow belts!!   2. Baroque plus Gold; some baroque inspired prints have been around during summer but nothing translates the rich feel of it better than fall fabrics like velvets…

AccessoriZe: Silver time

As fashion related to clothes changes, fashion related to accessories and everything else in the "beauty" industry changes as well, and even though it's obviously GOLD time out there, it's also a great time to mix your metals and to explore them as well.

Beauty S.O.S: The Adele!

 As fall draws closer and closer (especially for me moving to Colorado in a week!!) our make-up gets darker and richer and right now the look that's making everyone turn their heads is the Adele look! I've always been a huge fan of the cat eye (Audrey's, Brigitte's, Angelina's and now Adele's!!). I think the difference is that the new cat eye is thicker and can be drawn on the upper and lower lid, for a bigger impact. I also love the big puffy hair and boy, let me tell you that's the best trick for bad hair days ;)The Adele look was seeing at a lot of runways:  No matter which part of the look you like (whether the hair or make up or both) you can play along and transform in your own…
