TrendReport: Head over heels with skulls

Recently there's been a bit of an obsession with skulls in the fashion world, blame it on the zeit-geist (wars, European recession, etc..) but whatever the reason, I'm lovin' it! Especially when they come in girly and sparkled versions!! But if you're not the girly type there's enough options for the rock & roll girl as well ;)We Love Skulls! by karinastylediaries featuring skull tank topsThe scarf is a softer way to wear the trend if you are not into chunky jewelry.  Saks Fifth Avenue Indianapolis started to carry the "most wanted" McQueen scarves so you can stop by and get a feel for it!Hit me up if you'd like to reserve yours, they are going fast!! karinastylediaries@gmail.com Beijos,

Recently I discovered a great gal who makes the most intricate hair styles seem a breeze and since I get asked to do tutorials on my hair do's I think is a good idea to share my newest find with you all!!

LookBook: Neutro Total

Back from a break....again ;) Today's look is a basic neutral and a sophisticated yet soft sub from the black and white looks. Shades of gray paired with shades of nude always go well no matter the occasion. I adore this look not only because the dress was a birthday gift from my fashionista friend Isabela Paim but because the silhouette is so boho and flowy but it becomes instantly chic and put together with a tailored little blazer!   Ideas to try: 1.

I was meeting with a client but wasn't scheduled to work that day, so I could afford to wear more casual clothes but in a professional looking way. Think office casual, you want to wear your jeans but not look like it's the weekend  already. Keep the look pulled together pairing a cute tailored jacket. Accessorize, that's the ultimate wild card for spring! You can possibly wear the same outfit several times and keep the look fresh by accessorizing differently every time.Transform this look in an evening outfit by switching to heels and wearing stronger make up. Also unzip the bottom part of the jacket to make it…
