Floral Prints

I'm sure all you fashionistas out there have been reading that florals are going to be a big trend for s/s '12. Designers such as: Peter Som, Christopher Kane, and Marc Jacobs are just a few of many who are adding florals to their ready-to-wear collections!
Hurray, I just love this time of year! Naturally, we are wearing less, but it means that styling your outfit becomes much more essential. If you're not into wearing floral prints try accessorizing your outfit with floral earrings, pendents, bracelets, etc...

*This was the first time I tried taking photos on my balcony, so I apologize for the poor lighting and red car in some of the photos. Practice makes perfect, next time it will be much better!

The power of RED

As I have previously posted the color red is powerful, invigorating, bold, and calls for the attention of others.  I have been absent from my blogging duties because I've been endlessly applying for internships and jobs. I mention this, because it was the influence behind this post. There are many young/talented women and men who want to get a job in the fashion industry and it is important to differentiate one's self from the rest of the group during the interview process. Needless to say, no matter what job you find yourself applying for one must stand out. Case in point, wear RED. Whether worn on your feet or as a jacket, this simple pop of color leaves a lasting impression. With that in mind, wish me luck as I apply and interview for more jobs!!!...(now I get why everyone said to stay in school for as long as possible, finding a job is tough)
