The Chic-est Winter Coats for this Season

Every time winter comes around I am looking for my next coat for the season… Outwear is timeless – you can never have too much and never have something too unique. Yes, I may have jackets from past seasons I can wear, but each new season is an opportunity to invest in something unique that you won’t wear every day – maybe you go with pink, or faux fur, or studded – the opportunities are limitless. Here are some of my favorite winter jacket finds for this season, all from ASOS.

Feeling Inspired…

As lame and cliche as it sounds, my biggest celebrity style icons right now are Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid… I know, sounds like every other person, right? Well, that’s why this is the perfect post… I will not only be sharing some of my favorite outfits by them, but where you can find similar pieces to recreate it in your own way.

Chic Ways To Travel: Airport Style…

If the stress of packing isn’t enough for you, then here’s the next thing to add to your to-do list: picking the most comfortable, yet head turning chic outfit to run around the airport in. Yes, I’m serious about this. As a fashionista myself, I strive for excellence at all times, but the airport in particular is one instance I like to leave an impression and feel good about myself, as should you. There’s nothing I envy more than a female with the, ‘I’m just so casually chic, I don’t even have to try’ look. You know, those girls with the crazy messy bun but it looks like a famous hair stylist created it? Ugh, the envy.

The reality is, they most likely put in as much effort on their hair and outfits as you do for a special occasion. And there isn’t many worse feelings than looking like a slob and seeing other people so beautifully put together, even in sweats, and trust me, I see them every time I’m at the airport… which is a lot. Be at your best whenever you can. Life is your runway, and the airport is the best way to showcase it because it’s the one place where you’re making an impression on hundreds of people from all over the world. Not only that, but it’s amazing to feel amazing and confident in yourself. I know, why should you care what other people think? And you shouldn’t, you should always be you, regardless of anything in life, but you should care what you think. And remember also, being in a place with hundreds of people from everywhere, many traveling alone, you never know who you could meet. Now, I’m not saying throw on your heels and strut your stuff into the Dunkin’ Donuts line to order yourself some munchkins. I’m saying be the Gigi Hadid of airport people (I guess that entails Starbucks instead?)…

…and then get your munchkins (or venti iced vanilla latte with coconut milk). Take some inspiration and advice from celebrities like Kendall Jenner…

It’s as simple as that! One of the easiest ways to look effortlessly chic while staying comfortable is layering, color coordination, a good black bag and a trendy pair of shoes.

The best advice to take from all of this is, you can be comfortable and stylish all while making an impression, even in sweats and leggings (and in the books of Kendall and Gigi, clearly don’t forget your sunglasses). Don’t forget to be your best self all the time, and I mean this not just in attire either. Smile at strangers, be confident in yourself (a good outfit can achieve this!), and always go out of your way for strangers even if they don’t for you, airport or no airport.

 

Kendall Jenner High Waisted Leggings…

Kendall Jenner is the epitome of chic street style… She’s a major inspiration for me and I know for many others. Her effortless street style is to envy! She is definitely known for wearing leggings for her morning strolls and coffee runs and even just errands with friends, and even with such simple outfits she looks amazingly chic! Here below are just some of her cutest comfy street style looks, and where you can find similar and amazing affordable leggings just like hers….

An Open Letter to All Models ‘Bullying’ Kendall Jenner

Hey everyone!

I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and saw a sponsored-type post about a struggling models letter to Kendall Jenner, and after reading it, I was left simply frustrated. (Here’s the full letter –> An Open Letter To Kendall Jenner About Her Model ‘Bullying’) Overall, the letter wrote to express to Kendall the daily and total life struggle of an every day model working for a spot on the big runway, and how hard life can be for them. She points out how frustrating it can be to other models who have done so much to get a call and then get pushed aside for someone like Kendall, who (presumably) just walks in to whatever she wants and simply gets it because of her families fame and fortunes.

Here’s my outlook on it all:

In many, many, many interviews Kendall has pointed out that modeling is her passion and her dream and something completely separate and singular from her sisters and the show, and that she wants her own light aside in the fashion industry. Not only did she say that, but she mentioned her struggle to be as successful has she has lately and how hard she has had to work for her spot on the runway.

Here are just a couple of interviews where Kendall expresses her journey to catwalk fame: ABC – Kendall Jenner Opens Up About Modeling, teenVogue – KJ in All of Her Up-and-Coming Mega Model Glory

This rant can be understandable, especially from my point of view because on a, most likely weekly basis, I get a bit annoyed with the 17-year-olds driving around in brand new Audi’s and Mercedes’ with no work to be done, while I’m working twelve hours a day to pay for my 2000 Lexus and a community college degree. Yeah, it sucks having to make your way to the top with no support and seeing other people walk into amazing opportunities with no understanding of appreciation and hard work because of their lucky birth rights, but that’s life and life isn’t fair. There’s nothing you or anyone can do to change the individual life that each of us lead and no way to change our born fortunes. And neither I, nor any other opinionated less fortunate individual have the right to comment on the fortunate lives and presume that they don’t understand the worth and don’t apprecaite the things they are handed. We don’t know them personally, do we?

But lets ask one thing – If writer Arisce Wanzer, wants Kendall to be so understanding of a per-say ‘regular’ models trek to success, and wants Kendall to see from their point of view, then maybe she should take a look from Kendall’s, and try to be understanding of her life.

It isn’t her fault she was born into fame and money and if she wasn’t she is still beautiful and fit to be a model and would be a successful one, regardless of her fortunes. So I don’t agree with this at all and I think it’s completely ignorant.

What do you think?

Met Gala 2014: The Best and Worst

Fashion’s biggest night of the year, if you don’t already know, occurred May 5, 2014. The fundraising event held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is a night where the dress is the most important aspect of any guest. Hosted by Vogue, the Met Gala, aka Met Ball, celebrated and fund-raised for the Met’s Costume Institute for the opening of their Fashion Exhibit. Raising nearly $9 million last year, it’s an important night for celebrities to dress extravagantly.

Here’s the top Best and Worst dressed of the night…

Worst

1. Donatella Versace

Yup, I just threw up on her dress. And that’s exactly why it looks like that. Even that’s not a good enough excuse for this disaster. She always wears strange pieces, but I just couldn’t let this one pass bye. She looks like she’s about to go visit aliens in space, because that’s where this dress belongs.

2. Kirsten Dunst

This isn’t the Star Wars premiere. This just had way too much going on and needs to be buried. Donatella’s meeting her up in space.

3. Kristen Stewart

4 random fabrics of the same color piled on top of each other. Really Kristen? Really Chanel? (BTW in all reality, love Kristen with the orange hair)

4. Kate Upton

C’mon, Kate. I definitely think more highly of smoking babes. But then again, she’s usually not quite dressed at all. Little-miss-bo-peep, go back to you pasture.

5. Maggie Gyllenhaal

She kind of looks like she’s wearing a curtain she stole from the That 70s Show set. This is just way too much polka dots. The collar on the top is too casual and the colors are too blah. And the cape to match… Really… There’s no fixing this dress.

6. Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth, did you join figure skating? Will I see you in the next winter Olympics? Hopefully not. Unbelievably unflattering and too light for her skin tone. Adorable shoes, wrong dress.

7. Katie Holmes

Oh Katie…. (sigh), shriveled like a rotten peach.. This dress explains itself.

8. Lupita Nyong’o

This is a night to look like a princess, not a flapper. I am seriously disappointed after her fashionable past. Although, as always, she knows what colors glow on her flawless skin (and I’m a sucker for her shoes!).

9. Rita Ora

Lets not even start on the shoes. And the ridiculous arm wrap. Do I possibly need to say anymore?

Best

1. Cara Delevingne

She doesn’t even need an extravagant ball gown to be a stunning beauty. She may not be dressed traditionally for this event, overall she looks amazing. Sporting the latest crop top and high-waist – well, anything! – trend, she looks sophisticated yet sexy. A stunner .

2. Joan Smalls

The blue lipstick was daring and fab – The Vera Wang gown gorgeously fitting her like she’s just in her skin. Possibly #1 best.

3. Emma Stone

Oh Emma, you make the fashion world go round in this Thakoon outfit. Simple yet elegant. The top could have been a bit less casual for the occasion, but still hits all the right spots.

4. Victoria Beckham 

In her own design, Mrs. Beckham always (usually) takes the right turns in fashion, and did in this amazing piece. It’s clear: the plain and simple are winning the race this year.

5. Suki Waterhouse

This Burberry gown is true beauty. It’s the perfect amount.

6. Emmy Rossum

Floral’s are huge this Spring and Summer, and Emmy made all the right choices in this gorgeous Carolina Herrera gown. Bring on the  sunshine and tea parties.

7. Kendall Jenner

A huge fan of the rising model, I didn’t expect anything less than perfection. In Topshop, Kendall fits the gown perfectly, and the gown fits Kendall. The Stunning Chopard necklace was adds to the sophisticated look.

8. Blake Lively

The already stunning actress blew my mind away in this Gucci gown. There are no real words to describe this beauty.

9.Karolina Kurkov

Giant, and giant-ly breathtaking. What a perfect gown for this event. My top #1 of the night, this dress represents exactly what this event is all about. I couldn’t imagine this gown on anyone else. Cant get enough of this.

10. Sarah Jessica Parker

Fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker in Oscar de la Renta. She always goes big and crazy and always makes it look fabulous. Her hair is gorgeous and the gown just screams ‘Met Ball 2014’. My second favorite gown of the night, doing the Met Gala gown tradition right.
