Shabby Apple Giveaway!!!

As we approach summer, women everywhere have quickly shedded their winter duds, and traded them in for lighter clothing . However, what I am finding out, as I chat with my girlfriends via email, text, or Twitter (oh, the pitfalls of technology), is that they are having trouble finding practical and stylish, yet affordable clothes to wear as the seasons transition. Sometimes all we want in an outfit is instant glam without all the fuss, especially all of you career women out there! When frumpy just won't do....

Please check out The Shabby Apple, to discover wonderful vintage-inspired women's dresses and skirts. This fabulous online clothing boutique was founded by Emily & CK who aim to deliver practical and comfy, yet stylish clothing that can transition from the office during the day, into fun-filled summer nights on the town. I just adore the "Adelaide", a blue pencil bow skirt, which pays homage to a similar style worn in the 1940's. What I like about this garment is that it promises to accentuate curves, and is versatile to many body types. Please take a bite out of The Shabby Apple's delicious website and get 10% off if you mention the "stylebuffet10off" code, which expires 30 days from the date of this post.

By the way, "Adelaide" is up for grabs in a very exciting giveaway! Simply comment on my post and you are eligible to win! Only US residents could enter.

Why I Love My Reebok Zigs

As a self-professed "girly girl", I usually prefer my heels, pumps, and ballet flats over a pair of sneakers. I always felt that they belong in a gym class, and not as part of my everyday wardrobe. However, when I was chosen to help Reebok backstage at their corporate fashion show last September, fate (and the Reebok company discount) connected me with a wonderful pair of sneakers with the Zig Tech design. Not only are they pleasing to the eye, but they are very comfortable! It is almost like I am walking on cushions. These sneakers come in a brilliant variety of colors, for Men, Women, and Children. The Zig Zag design allows for shock absorption so feet don't bear the brunt of walking on concrete, exercise, or standing for long periods of time. Not to mention I adore the girly pink-purple ones I scored from the corporate store, which makes me feel like I am wearing a pair of heels, without the painful scraping and toe-scrunching. But wait? Who said I would have to give up my heels anyway?

Price: $99.98

Tightly Laced Kicks 10.10.10.

I attended Tighly Laced Kicks 10.10.10, which was a sneaker exhibit of rare, and limited edition sneakers.
Alex Saavedra spear-headed this event, asking sneaker enthusiasts in the Greater Boston Area to submit their rarest, most eccentric sneaks. There was also some graffiti art on display, and some local talent performed that night.

As you can see, a man can be just as serious about his sneaker game, as a woman can be about her shoes! I never imagined sneakers could be so polished and sophisticated, viewing them as casual, and laid back, but these sneakers are so elaborate in design they are far from that!


Some of these sneakers are discontinued, special edition, or came in limited colors and sizes. Exclusivity is the name of the game; the rarer the sneaker is, the more valuable it can be! High demand could drive these sneaker prices through the roof! These sneakers came in amazing, vibrant colors, and were in mint condition. Who knew sneakers could be seen as pieces of art?



It was amazing how artwork was incorporated into this sneaker exhibit! Sneakers, artwork, and performances worked together harmoniously to pay homage to the world of Hip Hop locally, and abroad.



What are your favorite sneaker brands?

Happy Birthday to Me!! My First Photo Post

I decided to treat myself to a photoshoot for my birthday, which was 10/10/2010, and to finally showcase some of my own outfits to my readers. Sequins, which is one of my favorite trends, is the theme I chose to wear on my birthday. To me, they represent Sophistication, glamour and celebration.

Here, I am wearing a sequined top and liquid leggings from H&M, and shoes from StellaBlu.

These strappy leather sandals are in the Jessica Simpson Collection. Don't sleep on her shoes, they are not only affordable, wearable and stylish, but also they exude her own style.

This multi-colored sequined jacket is one of my favorite pieces. I got it from H&M last year and I am impressed with the quality of the stitch-work for the price I paid for the jacket ($49.95). I wore red lipstick and nails as a fun contrast against this wonderfully colored jacket and black pants.

Thanks to my wonderful photographer George, for the amazing pictures!

Black Friday marks the beginning of the Christmas Holiday season, and usually falls on the day after Thanksgiving.
