Leith Clark Collection for Warby Parker

I've wrote a post about Warby Parker sunglasses over a year ago the reason being I'm so passionate about their cause, story and product! "Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to create boutique-quality, classically crafted eyewear at a revolutionary price point." They inspire me to say the least but I'm not going to bore you with long lines, if you are not familiar with them and their prodigious work take a look at their website: warbyparker.com and if you don't remember my first post in which I was over the moon with excitement check it out: 9fd.9f9.myftpupload.com/accessorize-warby-parker/ This time around I'd like to share with you guys their newest collection designed by fashionista Leith Clark, the Canadian native who's the editor of British mag Lula  (founded by Leith…

Polka Dot with Stella and Dot

Polka dots are in once again, but are they ever out? Well perhaps not in my world ;) So to my joy I found this cute little sweater at J.Crew Factory store over the summer and have worn it a couple of times in different ways...and here they are: Dress it up with a cute leather skirt, studded belt and heels... This look is appropriate for work yet perfect for happy hour or a fun dinner date! ***For a more conservative work environment wear it with a longer skirt and less accessories*** [caption id="attachment_2705" align="alignnone" width="640"] All Saints cow hide funky heel shoe[/caption] [caption id="attachment_2707" align="alignnone" width="625"] Basic Cat Eye with pinkish lip makeup[/caption] Carry a good red lipstick for the after hours ;) [caption id="attachment_2709" align="alignnone" width="625"] Complete look: Polka dot and Leather![/caption]…

Trend Report: Fall 2013 Accessory Book

September is the month of trend reports and fashion shows, fashion night out and fall, with so many things to do to get ready for the new season I prepared an accessory report to narrow your search for the perfect little something down, so this TR comes with the pieces that will be a part of your wardrobe for the next few months...some even more! From romantic to punk rebellious style the accessory trend follows the same vibe as the garment industry. Let's take a quick look: Fur is also hot in the accessory market. Bags, scarves and everywhere else it's possible to have fur, it's on!

TrendReport: The September Issue

Yes ladies and gents, the September issues are out and even tough I have disappeared yet again (tons of visits in town!) I was taking the time to browse them all just for you! LIAR, it was much for me too :))) At work we have been receiving all the special goodies that are arriving for fall regardless of the crazy climbing temps out there, so I spied a ton of leather, not so much in the rough motorcycle way but rather feminine and edgy. Fur is also hot, hot, hot, literally. Prints and patterns especially the more classic such as animal print and stripes are also staying. And my fave the flippy skirts, think 50's Dior's New Look!! So before I get to much ahead of myself I'll give you an overview of…

TrendReport: Straight from the runways 2013 spring trends

   Bye-bye 2012, hello 2013! And with that we are now officially looking forward to the spring season and its fun and bright palettes, flowy silhouettes and what else?!   Well, well, well here I am ready to give you an overview of the top 7 spring trends...1.  Black & White! Yesssss, I'm so excited about this one since it's my favorite "color" combo (or alone really). I know it's a timeless combination but it's coming strong this season down the runways, some Karl should be excited and right on his comfort zone, huh?!Louis Vuitton, Chanel and Chloe...what else do we need again?!    2.  Mix of Geometric Shapes with Stripes . Another rush of excitement (yes, I do get excited quite easily!!) but what's cool about these is that the stripes come in a…

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…

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,
