FashionBuzz: H&M Conscious – Sustainable Style Line

   So I got the email a few days ago ( might have been a week!) and I was AMAZED with H&M's  new line "Conscious - Sustainable", not only this is a great step to use up waste but also builds up consciousness in the youngsters (and oldies too) minds. Not to mention how absolutely fabulous the pieces look, seriously couture-ish like my friends and some prime material for the vintage look lovers, also one of them you can even categorize as avant-garde ;) no that's not all, the prices are also something to talk about, and most pieces are machine washable (if you're like me that means a lot!!!) CONSCIOUS - "Our vision is that business operations shall be run in a way that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable".Take a look at…

FashionBuzz: Duro Olowu for JCP

   Wow, I was blown away with this one! Against all odds being JCP not my top choice retailer when it comes to fashion forward items,  it seems like they're stepping up a notch ( or many, have you noticed the amazing commercials during the Oscars?) by bringing the Nigerian-born, London-based designer who's a master in the art of mixing prints and amazing bright colors to collaborate with their JCP Collection line. Better yet, the price point varies between $10-$90 dollars!   Take a look at some of the styles that will be offered and let them take on on a trip to Africa ;)      Besides the master skills on mixing prints Duro is giving  us the metallic sophistication with a gold/silver trench coat, summer dress, and a skirt. The line offers accessories as…

FashionNews: More Designer Collabs for ya!

   This month the fashion world is packed with designer collaborations. Starting with Narciso Rodriguez for Kohl's, a collection he created inspired by a trip to Istanbul, Turkey for the first time. "I wanted to merge the color of Istanbul with the graphic elements I use in my own collection to create something fresh", says the designer. Celebs rocking his designs for Kohl'sI love the color blocking and geometric patterns Narciso designs...very flattering in almost anyone!!    Karl Lagerfeld collab with cosmetics giant Shu Uemura comes with his drawing of the Mon Shu girl, a character he created to adorn the 17 piece makeup line! If like me, you don't know Karl has used Shu Uemura's eye shadows to color his sketches for over 20 years, not too surprised considering we're talking about the most…

Beauty Talk, Karina Style Travels, Local Stuff

ShopLocal: CosBar your beauty destination in the Rocky Mountains!

   Buying your goods from the the local shops is a way to keep them alive and going, besides the support of your community. That being said I know that's not always possible, maybe they don't have certain products or the shop really sucks... ouch!    So when I found this awesome beauty shop in the heart of the Vail Village I thought WOW I have access to all of this right here and didn't even know! So I felt the need to blog about such a place and let everyone know you have a beauty shop destination while on vacation!!!   I went in looking for an illuminator or highlighter and found a great little product from Chanel that is neither one of those but works just like one! Let me explain, it's the…

AccessoriZe: Warby Parker

   I'm so excited to share this with you!   Browsing on Pinterest the other day I came across these super cute pair of sunglasses - something I've been looking for forever but couldn't really find the right thing- and so I went to their website warbyparker.com to check it out  Let me tell you I'm NOT an online shopper (I like to try things on, smell it, feel it, etc..) so of course I wasn't thrilled to see this company is based in New York City, but to my surprise I found out they can send you up to 5 pairs of sunglasses gratis, so you can try them on in the comfort of your homey! You have 5 days to try and play with the glasses and return them with the pre-paid return…

FashionNews: Adele and Burberry, real or not real?!

   Fresh news this morning when yet another designer-celebrity collab is giving people something to talk about. Well, nobody has confirmed anything yet but the news are circulating all around UK and the rest of the world for that matter.   Adele has worn the label in many red carpet occasions and let's face it, both the singer and the label are so proud to be English that only something really sharp can come out of that mix. Rumor has it it Adele will design "custom-made" clothing for the women with curves! (very much needed, considering the teeny tiny Burberry numbers) And has been approached by nothing less than Christopher Bailey himself!!! So exciting ;) Adele wearing a Burberry gownAdele wearing Burberry ProrsumCan't wait to see what happens!Beijos,
