Flats are very versitile and can be worn with just about any look. They transition well too both day and night looks. Comfortable and Stylish..
A friend of mine, Vanessa asked for me to help her with her spring/summer wardrobe. In honor of her request I will be posting a series of blog post with items that can be worn during the above mentioned seasons. I will aslo show you how they can be worn.
I hope these posts not only help my friend Vanessa but also, help you to spruce up your current wardrobe.To start the series off I will begin with foot wear and work my way up.
As you all know I am very fond of wedges and yes you guessed it, the first shoes will be wedges!!
Spring/ Summer Wedges
Wandaly, Natalia and Me(Alicia)
You may or may not remember but about a month ago or so I received a styling request from my friend, Wandaly.
She wanted an outfit to look “hot’ as she said to wear on her 24th birthday. You can see her Single, Sexy and Free look by clicking.
I had chosen for her a pair of draped shorts and a blush corset top with a lace over lay. She didn’t end up going with the shorts but did find a skirt that gave the same feel. All she was missing was a top and a belt, this is where I came in. We went to Garden State Plaza(mall) and set out to find the perfect missing pieces.
We went to stores I frequent like H&M, Baker’s, and Arden B. It was at Arden B where she found two black suede belts; she wanted a suede belt to go with her suede shoes, not that that’s something you have to do. One was a bit simple and toned down, didn’t make much of a statement and the other was the complete opposite. You all know I pushed her to pick that one. Why not? Your birthday is one of the very few days out of the year you get to go all out and be bold.
A few weeks ago my cousin Rebeca, asked me to put a few looks together for her. She wanted a “nerdy look” as she called it. I figured she meant a preppy look, so I worked off that.
I could have went with all stipe button up shirts and cable knit sweaters but I wanted something younger looking and more stylish for her. I focused more on prints and colors to keep it fun and playful yet still giving her the sophisticated look she was after.
I created outfits she can use for work, casual weekends and out around town. The pieces I choose are very versatile allowing her to mix and match to create different looks without having to go out and buy more.
My cousin doesn’t wear heels, in case you were all wonder why all of the looks have flats. I sneaked in a kitten heel, I wonder what she is going to think about that. I took lots of time and put in lots of love into these looks and I hope she is able to use them as a guide to set up her new wardrobe.
Nestor And-Natalia Gibbs: ChicaFashion, Can u create a bohemian look 4 me? With one of those head bands with feathers u always want me to use with my hair straight. Thx! (:*
What you see above is wall-to-wall conversation from my personal Facebook account. Yesterday, I was given a few fashion styling request, challenges which I am always totally up for. The first challenge as quoted above was to create a “bohemian” look. Below is what I came up with for Natalia’s request...
By going with a dress that is light and flows as the main piece in the ensemble it would sets the “bohemian” character.
Worn with wedged gladiator sandals, a multi-color feathered headband, a mix of warm colors and gold tones gives this chica her gypsy feel.
I hope you are happy with what I came up with, if you happen to wear any parts or all of the look please submit pictures.
Vanessa Mota-Rosado: Natalia, she wants to go bohemian, Love it!!... I want an outfit for my Birthday, which I probably won't celebrate but just in case. Any ideas?
This was the following post in that thread and if I could figure out how to put in a blog comment box on my site, people would be able to just write to me here directly versus my Facebook. Nonetheless, I took on the request and I came up with this classy 26th Birthday look…
This look is classy and mature but still keeps the sexy. Lace is very in and trending right now. The Lace and Spot Mesh Long-line Camisole was my starting inspiration piece. The peek-a-boo mesh inserts play up on the sensual side of the look, while the deep V adds a little bit of exposure in an elegant way. A Lace mini and the T-strap heels, decorated with a scrunched fringe-edged taffeta strip with clusters of long beads tie the look together. I finishing the look are the black and gold accessories, the Cabachon Bib Necklace beautifully fit right along the inside of the V neckline.
Hopefully this look does inspire you to start making those birthday plans because I think you will look absolutely great in this.
Wandaly Cruz: I need one for my bday as well something hot!! Don't care whatever u want!! :) thanks
The last request of the day was also for a birthday outfit. With little to go on for inspiration, I took into consideration that Wandaly is young, bold and daring. I have wanted to use lace-top over the knee stockings in one of my looks and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do so.
Single, Sexy & Free
I would say my inspiration to start of this look were the stockings, over the knee stockings are quickly become the hot new “IT” item. Draped shorts are the perfect bottom to use to with the stockings; the top is a light rose and black lace corset. Black, pink and crystal accessories pull it together; Simply Vera Vera Wang Jet-Tone Floral Y Necklace Instant glamour gets you noticed wearing it. The Y design with pink floral details blossoms with beauty. Adding sophistication and a hint of “racy” the pink suede pumps complete the outfit.
This look is amazing! You wanted “HOT” and that’s what I gave you while keeping stylish, fun and flirty. It embodies a single, sexy and free woman… just how you should feel.
