Afterlight (Tommy Hilfiger series Part III) (Look 94)

Stripes are considered a classic pattern that never goes out of style. Lately I've been obsessing about the stripes on stripes trend. Although this may seem a little bit scary at first for some people, this trend has taken over the world this season.  

Here are a few tips to rock the "Stripe trend":

  1. Try to wear thinner lines on top and thicker on the bottom to create a more flattering look. 
  2. A simple striped tee looks great with a pair of jeans and topped with a striped jacket or coat. Simple things are better. 
  3. When using color, try to pair neutral colors with pastels.  In my opinion, bright colors and stripes from head to toe are not good friends. 
  4. Horizontal stripes will make your body look wider. Try to find vertical lines, this way your body will look longer and thinner.
  5. Take risks and don't be afraid to try something new.  I understand, stripes can or can't be your thing, but this doesn't mean you should not try at least to once. Take a chance.

Dia de Muertos with Veuve Clicquot

"Día de muertos" is a day to celebrate and remember our loved ones that have gone before us. The "day of the dead" is a long standing mexican celebration that began with the ancient Aztecs. Keeping true to this tradition a lot of mexican families make special altars and beautiful preparations with offerings like candy, food and meaningful things that were special to their loved ones. Of course, this includes the world famous "pan de muerto"
Día de muertos es un día para celebrar a nuestros antepasados y a personas importantes de nuestra vida que se fueron antes que nosotros. El Día de muertos es una celebración mexicana que iniciaron los aztecas hace muchísimos años. Y siguiendo la tradición muchísimas gente lo sigue celebrando hasta el día de hoy preparando altares y ofrendas con comida típica como el famoso pan de muerto y objetos que fueron significativos para nuestros seres queridos.

Afterlight (Tommy Hilfiger Series Part II) (Look 93)

There's something magical about light. Light has the power to change the way we look at things. It can change perspectives, places, things and can even affect our mood. It's a natural agent that stimulates sight and makes things visible. Believe it or not, light travels at 186,000 miles per SECOND. In other words the light you're seeing right now was still tucked away in the sun about eight minutes ago. Ok. Now you  have a better understanding of why I said there was something magical about light, right? 
I wanted to talk about this subject on this post because I truly believe that lighting is everything, especially when it comes to photography. 
 It's not easy to capture a beautiful soft glow, but personally I think that this series are a good example. 
Now you know, light takes twice as long to get from the sun to the Earth as it does to make a cup of coffee ; )

Lost without my Boy.friend

During NYFW I had the chance to meet my new Boy.Friend. Yes, my new boy period friend. An elegant elongated octagonal watch inspired by the bottle cap of the CHANEL No.5 perfume is my newest obsession. 
As you may have already seen, my style changes everyday. It really depends on my mood.  Sometimes I can be the most girly girl in the world and sometimes I really love to dress in a more androgynous way. This is one of the reasons I fell in love with my new Boy.Friend. 
It’s a timeless piece that you can rock with pretty much anything you want.

Mademoiselle Coco Chanel had herself a very androgynous yet sophisticated style. In fact she was the first woman to reject a lot of the feminine styles of her day and created a kind of boyish style which made her a rebel in the 1920s and 30s With a huge variety of adornments and straps, CHANEL offers this iconic piece with or without diamonds. Definitely a must for your collection.

Xx, Michelle
