Spring Trend: Black & White

A strong trend on the fashion radar is black & white. You may do it in stripes, polka dots, floral prints, or color blocking.

How To Incorporate Nudes Into Your Wardrobe

Spring is upon us, which means it’s time to come out of our winter cocoons. While neutrals and nudes have been a hot color both on and off the runway, I’ve noticed that there are those of you who aren’t entirely sure how to incorporate the color into your wardrobe without feeling washed out.

Personally, my go to neutrals are blacks and grays. However, I have made a point indulge in creams, whites, and other flesh-tone shades.  Here are a few looks to kick start your fashion juices.

Alicia Keys + {Givenchy}

Alicia Keys is the face for Givenchy’s new fragrance, Dahlia Divin.

While Ms. Keys (or should we call her Mrs. Beatz?) is stunning in this golden ad, I couldn’t help but to take a moment to tract down the notes of this scent. What I’ve discovered, thus far, is that the scent includes jasmine, mirabelle plum, and patchouli.The scent will be [appropriately] released in September.

In case you’ve read this post; I’ve decided to keep the Signorina.

People have so many negative things to say about this couple. What I will say is that I believe that everyone who gets married thoroughly, in their heart, believed that they were in love and wanted to spend the rest of their life with said person at the time of marriage. Just because you did that several times previously does not mean that you are no longer capable of having those feelings and should go live under a rock.

With the divorce rate here in the United States, we (common people) can’t knock when celebrities get married multiple times. Apparently, we’re doing the same thing.

Kim and Kanye look happy. That’s what matters. So congratulations to them.
