Vogue and Riccardo Tisci

I have a wide range of designers that I absolutely adore. Alexander Wang, Jason Wu, Phillip Lim, Alber Elbaz, The Olsens, Elie Saab, to name a few. But one of my ultimate favorites would have to be none other than Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy. His designs are wondrous and elegant with numerous hint of originality. I’m absolutely in love with this talented designer and was blown away by this interview he did with Vogue.com. I’ve always been fascinated by watching interviews whether it’s of an actor, author, singer, or designer. Mainly because everyone is mostly familiar with the work they do rather then the person they are. So I guess I’m always surprised by watching someone in an interview because you get a better sense of who they are as a person. I’ve only been familiar with Riccardo’s designs rather than his personality. With this interview I got to see the man behind the designs which is always interesting. Watch the video below and feel free to comment on what you thought!

Celebrity Style Fave: Poppy Delevingne

Celebrity Style Fave: Poppy Delevingne by sandrarose featuring jo no fui I usually find that 99% of the time, models usually have an excellent eye for fashion, thus making them style icons in the process. One of those individuals happens to be none other than Bristish model, Poppy Delevingne (big sister to infamous British model, Cara Delevingne). Her look is polished with minimalistic undertones and just a touch of boho edge. She combines refined pieces with vintage inspired items for a East coast meets West feel. The unexpected feel of her ensembles are refreshing as well as surprisingly chic. To emulate Poppy’s look try pairing bohemian inspired pieces with sophisticated and elegant ones. Pair a floral dress consisting of a low-high hem with ankle booties and a structured blazer or tailored trousers with a faux fur vest for a urban hipster feel.

Spring Trend: Printed Shorts

I hope everyone has been enjoying this fabulous weather that has finally decided to grace us with it’s presence. Am a fanatic for warm weather and like it rather hot. The cold doesn’t really suit me all that well. Perhaps it’s the Spanish blood that courses through my veins that causes me to have such love for boiling hot weather. Regardless of the reason, I’m just glad it’s finally warming up outside. I was beginning to get a little worried there for a second. So as the weather warms up we begin to see a vast shift in clothing. Individuals have traded in their layers and opted to show more skin. Long gone are the boring, thick coats that envelope us whole. No-no, they’re replaced by sheer blazers, mid-thigh chiffon skirts (preferably in bright colors), pretty dresses and short shorts in wondrous prints. Prints are such a huge part of my wardrobe and as I’ve progressed in fashion; have become something of an essential. Printed shorts are such an easy way to upgrade and outfit as well …

Three Simple Ways To Wear Menswear!

Three Simple Ways To Wear Menswear! by sandrarose featuring rachel comey booties I’ve always liked a little masculinity in my clothing. The silhouette is always sophisticated and on cue. I’ve complied three outfits crafted with three of my favorite menswear pieces, a suit, blazer, and over sized cardigan. The outfits above give you an idea of just how easy it is to take any piece from your beau’s closet and turn it into something your own. Suit– Technically this a two piece woman’s suit but the fit is loose giving it that masculine feel. You can easily take a menswear suit and do just the exact. Just make sure to look for soft colors so that the whole outfit doesn’t look too masculine. You still want to keep that femininity. Also make sure the fit is right, if it isn’t then a tailor is your best bet. Blazer– I love men’s blazer’s, the fit is perfect as is the shape. I decided to pair this blazer with a fitted collared shirt, distressed skinnies, nude ankle …
