An All Leather Outfit

Wearing an all leather outfit was never my thing. I love leather, and this year it is definitely in even for the next Spring-Summer 2015 season. All leather outfits are risky, as they can shift from being sexy to being trashy through a tiny styling mistake. To pull an all[…]

Clashing Colors

Clashing colors are “supposedly” a fashion faux pas, would you dare? I’ve always put black and brown together (as the ultimate two clashing colors), and never considered the clash between the two colors a big fashion faux pas; but it took certain shades of both colors to make this combination[…]

Fun is Always on the Dark Side

Dramatic outfits are the best; there is no doubt in that, because dramatic outfits are such a statement, and always a good reason to look twice. But dramatic outfits are also out of context most of the time; this is why I am trying as much as possible to find[…]
