Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking

That phrase shook the meme fashion world to its core. Let me remind you of that scene where the highly (feared) dictator of fashion of movie The Devil Wear Prada, Miranda Priesly’s character gently looks away with a pursed lip and unimpressed at a designer’s Spring presentation. Why would she react like that in room full of delicate and beautiful floral prints? What’s so wrong with floral prints?

I am the first one to whip out a fun cute floral ensemble but out of all the prints of summer, (fall, spring, for that matter because they’re here all year round) it’s a print I’m most conscious of. Frankly it’s over used, and it can get tiring if not innovated or used in a smart way. I’m not to avoid it --because one thing for sure, it will never go out of style.  What I am invoking for is a spin, let creativity rule over your florals. It is a basic in every wardrobe and as seen during this past Fashion Week all around the fashion capitals, florals ruled the catwalk.

Rule number one: match your florals. Go for a micro print, subtle enough that it doesn’t overpower the look. Don’t let it be about the flowers but of the components of your outfit. This flirty pleated with ruffle set skirt is ideal. Easy to throw on and bares the essential summer shoulder. Wear with black ankle booties during weather transitions which in addition adds boldness.

A La French // Pt. 3

A La French 

Continuing with our last look inspired by the French gal, we couldn't be more excited to show off this combo. So essential to this Spring's trends, plaid has been everywhere, seen in the oversize coat during Fall and now on the Spring's light weight blazer. 

In the true essence of a cheri --don’t be afraid of menswear. With a little mix of young school girl and the popular 90’s plaid trend, I’m wearing a plaid set with thigh high boots and a sheer sparkled long sleeve top with a cute bralette for the curious eye. I added a scarf wrapped around my neck, an accessory so essential for the French gal. 

I’m sure when all is set and done, and we’ve dominated their art form soon they would ask for le mexicain way for fashion tips. Then, we can give them a lecture or two on mixing hand woven colorful textures.

So, what really makes these women so special? I once read, “Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange, and what better time to break this down than with Valentines Day around the corner. A true French girl oozes romance and is known for her simple, low maintenance beauty while also making bold fashion choices.

One of my favorite Instagram accounts for French style cues is @adenorah not only because her amazing feed, but her high waist bottoms are always a must! You can appreciate how this signature style has set her apart. With here aesthetic in mind, I’ve paired a simple high waist denim straight leg and one shoulder black bodysuit, simple yet elegant. Hardly any accessories, because less is more.

There are some styles I praise when it comes to the it girl factor. I love the bohemian chic from the west coast or the cool, perfectly put together New Yorker, but on top of my list, is the effortless romantic, French girl. I’ve been wanting to bring this subject to Cream because in the world of fashion, the biggest muses to designers and trend setters come from the streets of Paris. From our idol mademoiselle Coco Chanel to the modern Marion Cotillard, their je ne sais quoi is memorable and in most cases enviable.

A French woman is so natural to hats, so I’ve taken this suede black cap and added a little mix to the look. With a pair of origami cut white shorts and a classic favorite print, gingham and black ankle booties. A pop of red with my go to leather jacket.

Mexico For The Holidays

Holidays are always a whirlwhind and nonstop but if there's a part thats actually fun, its outfit planning. So of course if we headed out on vacations, the fair thing would be to share our picks for this trip to the beautiful city of Mexico. In our true colors, the only mission was to eat and we did it so fashionably well...with new arrivals. 

I've never been surrounded myself with so much history and culture at once. From the streets to the local eats and obviously the art. One of my favorite spots was the reknown, majestic, Palacio de Bellas Artes. The day was beautiful to tour around historic downtown, so I went with a cotton/linen blend jumpsuit. Detailed trimmed straps and lace up on the back, something that at first glance can be dressy but I toned it down with a pair of black nikes, my grey bomber jacket and sunnies. At night, I was ready for some drinks with just a change of shoes.
