My slogan is don't follow trends!!! i don't like to indulge per-say because it leaves you broke :( trends will come and go.
But, not following trends doesn't mean you should come out looking like u fell from the 70's or worse of from Flintstones :D

Remember ladies, being simple and classy is key, you must not try every new thing out especially if it doesn't suit you. Also, you must not own every new pair of designer shoes if you CANT afford it. Don't be a slave to fashion. But, if u can splurge on.

some popping trends at the moment


 Remember ladies when your going bold on the lips with bright colors like red or pink always go easy on the eyes especially in day time. You dont want to go out looking scary or like a paint book.


Alot of ladies have been rocking the side part lately, that sexy side slip gives your hair a classier touch

The recently concluded SAG (Screen Actors Guild) awards was a fabulous night to remember, the red carpet was flooded with beautiful dresses and silhouettes of all types, big designer names and fashion statements

The beautiful Vampire dairies star Nina Dobrev, looking smoking as ever, in Elie Saab.
The sexy and seductive Kerry Washington, star of the hit movie Django unchained looking effortless in Rodarte. I like the dress but am not particularly crazy about it.

Jennifer Lawrence aka Jlaw i love her, i love the dress (Christian Dior) the side swept hair, she is such a superstar!

If you love Homeland (series) as much as i do, then you'll love Morena Baccarin. Cant say the same for her double outfit, a strapless jumpsuit and a dress or what it looks like. oh well ill leave this for the experts to criticize.

Julia Stiles, the Bourne babe rocking this teal Ahmed couture gown, love the old Hollywood glam hair.

I am not a fan of the good wife, and also Julianna Margulies choice of wadrobe for this event, the waist-line, the shoes i mean seriously.....on to the next one!

To those people who laughed at Jennifer Christain at the golden globes, i'm singing on her behalf ' look at me now' in Chris brown's voice LOL. she looks adorable in Alexander McQueen.

hmm in my honest opinion, if reverend sisters decided to look slightly sexier this is what they will go for (my opinion), January Jones what a risk-taker.

This lady, Marion Cotillard is a fashionista and thus, can pull off such a look, fulled skirt number by Dior.

Amanda Seyfried
i love you #nohomo. Those eyes! she is hot and she the make-up, the dress although it makes her look shorter. she looks fab!
