What's on your Timeline?

The blogger life isn't all always about glamour and shopping. It involves some extensive information gathering, visits to events, fashion shows, museums, reading other blogs, magazines and the like to even make a dent in the overwhelming amount of information that is at your grasp. If this sounds like it can become tiresome, its because it is.  In between those moments of surfing the net for the latest trends or "it" story, you have to find time to enjoy the very thing that everyone is raving about, LIFE. So here's a little snapshot of my timeline for this past weekend, enjoy, I did!!

Feline Fancy

The Scuba Skater Skirt,  is a curvy girls friend. This style is modern and playful and accentuates the hourglass figure. I'm in love with the color and texture of my new skirt purchased form Eloquii. The scuba material is soft and built for the working girl on the move!!

Think Inside the Box

The boxy top was rampant on runways of the S/S 2014, season. Designers with an affinity for the sport aesthetic, created both whimsical and practical versions of this stylish top. The shape is very architectural and lends the wearer room for error, so you can hide those things that you find unflattering on your upper body quite easily. In the era of the crop top I find this silhouette more forgiving and creates sleek line,that accentuate a dynamic look.

DC Events: DMV Honors Celebrity Weekend of Champions

Friday night was indeed a knockout, in terms of fashion, fun, and entertainment for the DMV Honors Celebrity Weekend of Champions. The weekend to celebrate some of DC's  renown boxers, began with a lovely ceremony that featured none other than songstress, Marcia Ambrosius. The events were well attended and style did not escape these athletes, known for their elusive moves, bob and weave!

La Ruche

Let's take yesterdays style advice and demonstrate how to extend the life, of some your summer clothing. As I said, transitioning your summer wears into fall, can be made simple by layering. You can use a cardigan, as I did with this hand dyed, ruched dress, or a  sweater, sweatshirts, blazers, you get the idea, the possibilities are endless. As the temps begin to lower, you can experiment with different textures and layer even more. Remember to pay attention to the details and use your accessories to update the look for the season.

Fall Preview

According to the Farmers Almanac, the autumnal equinox brings the fall season to the Northern Hemisphere on: September 22. Whoa, that means fall will be here in less than two weeks! Well that also means, its about time to start weeding out your true summer clothing, from your closets and wardrobes. A strategy I like to use in order to make this transition more seamless, is by posing one question: Can I layer this item successfully, to work for this season? If the answer is no, than that item goes in to the summer pile for packing away. Continue this evaluation for things that fall into the gray are between fall and summer only. Eventually you should end up with a minimized collection of clothing that will push you through the milder days of fall.
