LookBook: Mini balloon-skirt dress with open back!

 I got this cutie at H&M Chicago a couple of weeks ago. So sad this kind of dresses never make it to the Indy stores, what's up with that?! Frustrations aside I'm happy I got it...not only it compliments the shades of my new hair style ;P but it goes a long way when changing the accessories and pulling the hair up in a bun. It's a special little dress for an even specialer price! This time I wore with a long tan leather belt (I love when the belt is long enough to tie at the end, it adds a little something something!!) from Ann Taylor and a pair of green textured leather heels from Ralph Lauren (both items are from past seasons, sorry!) but I also put it on with a deep brown…

LookBook: DVF Green Dress

Karina Reske to the rescue!!! Yes, that happens every time my BFF has an event such as a wedding or fashion show to attend, in fact that is the best part of our friendship -the fact that we are so good at different things it only compliments and strengthens our ties :) Don't ask me to do anything related to technology or design of business cards, websites and such - that's with her!!!Anyway, to the point: Kris had a wedding on Saturday and I did her make up and hair and offered tips on styling her amazing DVF green dress, and this is the result...For info on price and schedules available for hair and make up email me at  karinastylediaries@gmail.comBeijos,

Chi-Chi town in Hot Company!

Yesterday I went to Chicago, thanks to my dear friend Eutemia, who had to pick up her passport in the Brazilian Consulate. Of course any excuse is good enough to justify the trip, so there we went...lots of talk and philosophies (haha!), singing and venting we finally arrived and we were ready to shop! Quick resume of our day in the windy city - with lots of sunshine ;)

Couture with Biker Jacket

Good thing about my job is that I can come in wearing a piece of couture and people will find it fabulous rather than insane!! Ok, this Jean Paul Gaultier yellow plasticky dress was a gift from a special friend (Kiki) and I thought it was a good opportunity to wear since I went to a Midwest Fashion Week event that day.Photo Credit: Blair (Blaircontrare @ Instagram)Dress: Jean Paul Gaultier for Target, Leather jacket: Bebe, Chain bracelet: Target, Shoes: ZigiSohoBeijo,
