Warby Parker Winter Collection 2014 Top Ten Faves

WPWC2014

Greetings Spiiirits!

Sending love & light to you all,

Today was the launch of Warby Parker’s 2014 Winter Collection! Warby Parker is a brand that seeks to provide affordable and stylish glasses. Their versatile selections offer a vast variety that caters to both fashion or prescription needs. And though I do not wear prescription lenses, I love fashion lenses and have a blood lust for stunning frames. (Not to mention the fact that Triiin has been in dire need of new prescription lenses, so we’re shopping around). Given Triin’s need & my blood lust, I could not resist picking my top ten fave selections from their newest collection!

Now for the Top Ten-sies…in no particular order

From this collection, I was predominately inspired by the earthen leopard-like prints and the cuts that featured heavy top frame with slender frames on the bottom.I really think that cut is very face flattering and the classic black in this style do not disappoint either. I love both the feminine and masculine variations on this style (for example the very feminine, cat-like cut of  #6, in contrast to the more unisex cut of #9). I’d say my top pick for eyeglasses would be #6 and for sunglasses would be #3 (and my guess is Triiin’s top fave would probably be #1 for eyeglasses and #3 for sunnies as well). 🙂

{P.S.: True to their belief that everyone has a right to see and their desire to make sure everyone who needs glasses can have access, Warby Parker works with non-profits like VisionSpring to make sure that for every pair of glasses sold a pair is distributed to someone in need. So when you buy their frames you can feel even better knowing you are lending someone else the gift of vision as well. Which is pretty Ah-mazing!}

Check out the eyeglasses and sunglasses in their new collection for yourself and tell me, which ones are your faves??

Good Morning Guys n Gals, I have some “Outfit of the Day”‘s to catch up on!

I think I nailed it, what do you guys think???

The Five S’s of Summer

Hey dolls ! I am here with the top 5 things a fashionista just can’t do without for the summer. Let’s get right to it !

The Sunnies

Image

Sunnies are the ultimate summer accessory! They shield your eyes from the blinding rays while making you look glam. Pick up a pair in a bright, fun color, cool shape or funky print, or go for the classic-style shade. Whatever suits your style!

The Summer Dress

Image

Dresses are ideal for summer time, especially the one with a flirty cut and tropical-esque floral print like the one above. Whether mini, midi, or maxi, when selecting a summer dress, make sure it is flattering to your figure and has breathable material and cut for the warm weather. The floral print blouson dress above is from Forever 21 and costs $24.80.

The Swim Wear

Image

C’mon, its summer! You gotta have a little fun in the sun, and that usually involves getting wet. Whether for a trip to the beach, or the neighborhood pool, you gotta be ready to pull out your swimsuit at a moments notice. There is a vast variety of cute popular swimsuit cuts for Summer 2012. From the retro cut to the one shoulder, be sure to pick the swimsuit that will be most flattering to your body type. It’s the best way to ensure you will be confident and avoid embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions.

The Shorts

Image

Who wears short shorts? We wear shorts! Its summer, its hot, and you can’t wear pants all the time. Embrace the heat with shorts. You can wear basic denim cut-offs or switch it up some shorts with a quirky print. The ones above are shorts by The Pretty Junk from Asos Marketplace & cost $83.60.

The Sandals

Sandals are a definite summer staple. Feel free to show off that fresh pedi in some strappy open-toed kicks! My advice is to stock up on as many pairs as you can because they are the one thing you will probably wear everyday of the summer, or close to.  This pair is from Forever 21 and is only $12.80!

Until Next Time!

Trendspotting : Neon

Color will always be a big trend for the Spring and Summer months. Its only right, as the weather brightens up, so does our wardrobe ! As we segue from Spring to Summer one big color trend that’s emerging is Neon. Whether its on a bag or boldly slathered on our nails, Neon is a must-have in our fashion arsenal. Here are a few items on my neon-wishlist for the season :

Image

These bold pink “South of 5th” sunnies from Urban Outfitters are perfect for the season! Wear them with any outfit for a bit of neon flare. They run about $16 and they are cat-eye glasses, a trend bonus!

Image

Taking summer school maybe? I am, and Lord knows I will need a way to carry around my books. I could just use one of the handy shoulder bags I already own (that’s probably what i’ll actually do), but in my fashion fantasy land I’m walking around the campus with this baby on my back. I’m not too often a fan of backpacks, but this one screams chic.On sale for $29.99, this Baggu Neon Backpack can be purchased on fredflare.com. Lastly this bag was made from 100% recycled cotton canvas, an environmental plus!

Image

With its sassy cut and neon accents, this dress has just the right amount of spice. Perfect for a night out, it’s $29.90 and can be found on windsorstore.com

Image

Neon polish, oh yeahh! Probably the cheapest way to sport the neon trend, this nail polish and others like it only run about $4 and can be found in drugstores and your local Walmarts’ and Targets. I will definitely be getting some and putting it into effect ASAP!

Have a little fun with neon yourselves!

XOXO Jaz’
