Kristen Stewart & Balenciaga by Christopher N

This celebrity endorsement in my opinion is GENIUS. Why do I think this? because these two fit perfectly.

Kristen Stewart as we all know is edgy, and her style screams edgy. She is a bit awkward when she speaks to the media, which gives her this mystic about her. Balenciaga on the other hand is very edgy, hints of roughness, feminine, and unique.

I wonder why Balenciaga choose her, could it be that the final film of Twilight was being released? could it be that she has a large tween following? is it her style? I would say YES to all of these questions.

Kristen Stewart is the face of Balenciaga’s Florabotanica perfume. The reason why I think these two together are GENIUS because perfume is a money maker for companies and why not put Kristen Stewart. She has a huge tween audience to buy this perfume which doesn’t cost much compare to other Balenciaga products and this would create “the dream” to purchase more Balenciaga in the future. Also it creates buzz for the world to hear about the brand even more. In addition, Kristen Stewart needs the media to discuss something else other than her scandal and she needs a fashion brand behind her. Once you have a fashion brand behind you, your career would pave its way more smoothly.

In regards to her scandal, I believe this did not hurt Balenciaga because it seems that the world has forgiven her, and she seems to be a peace with herself as she looked radiant at the premier of the last installment of Twilight.

Fashion On A Budget by Christopher N

I hope you all received helpful advice from my “The Do’s and Don’t Of Fashion Styling”. Today I will give you some helpful tips on how to be fashionable on a BUDGET.

Lets face it, we all love to save in every aspect in our lives, especially when those Dior shoes are on sale. But with the rise of fast fashion such as H&M and Forever 21, people are starting to look the same because of these low prices, but there are other ways to save without losing the quality of item.

When I was growing up, I have been privileged to be surrounded by closets full of all designers, My parents have them all, mostly my mother, but there kids were not going to get it that easily. I have my designer items but sometimes I have to hunt like everyone else. Here is a list of some stores that have great brands and still fashionable and have expectable prices.

Lord & Taylor: This store has many bridge/contemporary designers. For those that do not understand this concept, this means that its not too expensive nor is it too inexpensive, but the quality is expectable and the price is great for what you are getting. Brands like Calvin Klien, Ben Sherman, Hugo Boss, Michael Michael Kors,  and DKNY. Even thought the prices are in the middle, Lord & Taylor is AWESOME because they have COUPONS and they have lots of SALES, which bring the price down drastically. If you have a Lord & Taylor card, even more discounted.

Macy’s: We all grew up with Macy’s some way or another, There are many inexpensive brands, and there are bridge/contemporary brands. They also has COUPONS and have many SALES, and with a company card, your prices continues to go down. But to find good quality items, you have to dig through the store, but you will find them. But fashion doesnt have to be expensive, so here buy your cool pair f Levi’s.

Loehmann’s: This place is HEAVEN, there are so many high end designers here and also bridge/contemporary designers, this is a place to go if you want designer for the best price. They give you a BIRTHDAY DISCOUNT and they have REWARD CARDS, when you add both together, you feel that you robbed the place. You will find Valentino, Victor & Rolf, Prada, ect.

Im not a fan of fast fashion, but out of all the fast fashion, in my opinion Zara is the best. H&M does not do it for me, unless its a collaboration with a designer. Zara produces less pieces which gives you more exclusivity, and they are more fashionable and the quality is a bit higher than H&M. Even though the price is a bit higher, its worth it.

How can I forget high-end department stores. Nieman Marcus is great because of LAST CALL, you better be there the first day of this sale, thats the best stuff. This is do or die, when this sale comes along, but you will be so happy getting those Tom Ford boots.

When you have pieces from all of these stores, mix it up, and you would look like an individual, you saved and you have great pieces that can be used for a long time because of quality. With these great brands you look like a fashionable person. Again, from my previous post, find things that speak to you and your style would speak to others.

I hope you all enjoyed these helpful tips.

The Do’s and Don’ts for the Fall Season by Geraldine Rivera

The Do’s for the Fall Season

1. Adding a bit of color to your dark outfit!

Image

Everyone starts to wear more dark fall colors as the season change but don’t forget some of the great summer colors like red, yellow and blue. You don’t need to look like a rainbow but adding a colorful headband or colorful skirt like in the picture will create a nice fashion taste to your outfit!

2. Peacoats

Peacoats seem to always be in and essential during the fall. It’ll keep you warm and very fashion forward. The perfect colors for peacoats in the fall are black, beige/tan, red and navy. In other words, you can’t go wrong with peacoats.

3. Burgundy

Image

Besides it being a beautiful color, this color along with wine colors and truffle colors are becoming more and more popular. I see this color everywhere!! Not only is it popular but it’s probably the perfect lipstick color, if you love dark lipsticks then burgundy/wine is the way to go!. It really gives a dakr vampire look.

The Don’t’s for the Fall Season

1.Leggings

Image

Ladies, Let’s at least stop this trend for the fall!! Not only can leggings show too much than we need to see. It’s not worth being freezing your butt off! These would probably be amazing to be comfortable in on a regular day but not to go out. Not sure if you ladies knew this but pants and jeans exist!

2. Sneaker Heels

Image

Suddenly and currently became a trend which I’m not sure why. Maybe it’ll keep you feet warm in the fall but definitely not looking cute. But other than that..no comment.

3. Mint and peach colors

These beautiful colors can possibly be worn to make fall outfits more fashionable. However, I don’t see it being worn as much as they did in the summer. But definitely something to bring back in the spring/summer!
