Must haves must haves must haves

The must haves item of the day is,,,

The berry lipstick!!

When having much trouble to apply brightest pink for your daily make up, choose berry hues! It is simply dim the bright pink, because berry color is basically a blend of pink and purple, meet in the middle. So it is perfect for having intense color for your lips, without too much brightness.

My choice of berry is Clinique’s grandest grape intense from their new chubby stick collection! It is very applicable for daily wear and does not need any nude color to mix it up.

The modest hue and its intense color of grape really is grabbing attention and really make your over all look well done!

Quick tips for edgy look:

mix it up with darker color, or classic to bring more intensify grape berry color on your lips. Have it your way! 🙂

ETERNAL BLACK REVIVAL

black rocks this year’s runway

Style is somebody’s cumulative choices of what they decided to wear everyday. Mood swings, events, and purpose of the day are basically what effects their decision.

So when somebody decided to put on black on black attire for the day, or for the rest of their lives, what could their message be? Was it just plain their favorites, or was it something more?

the girl who kick ass in black

Before going to places, a person choose how to get dress. Colors, fabrics, patterns and eventually it became their style for the day.

Many of them are always have signature things, such as bracelets, cuffs, or even piercings. No matter what, the look that we choose, relying the feelings we were having that time.

It is powerful how one look can affect how you feel for the rest of the day. Take example in “the girl with the dragon tatoo: the girl who kicked the hornet’s nest” when Lisbeth Salander -played by Noomi Rapace- decided to go all out black on black and put all the punk attire for her trial. The image is strong looking, fearless, and even challenging.

She basically said, “You have got nothing on me, and i am stronger than ever!”

The rough life of lisbeth doesn’t make her weak, infact its getting her more stronger. So when you look at the movie, you will see how she dressed and how she personafied the look.

for me black is…

Strong. That’s what i always get and aim when i wear black and all kinds of black with all its shades for my outfit of the day.

Not only suits me, but i feel really comfortable and it gives me an extra confidence to do anything for the rest of the day. Whether it’s formal or informal occassion, i always fall for black attire (with twists of its shades, like grey and white)

Where the black stands

“Notice me, but do not disturb me.” Is what black gives a message. In more elaborate interpretation, a sense of mystery, inconspicous and gives protection from invinsibility. Meanwhile, as a gem stone, crystal-cure.com said black symbolizes resilience and self control.

Among the events like black tie, and cocktail parties, black becomes the main choices for elegance. but on the other hand, black blends well with punk style. as it said earlier, rebellious black marks a perfect message to what the punk community delivers.

There are many conflicting ideas what the black is all about. as if it always mysterious, and no one can fathom what really it stands. eventually, versatility become the primary status -in the sense of its function- in the fashion world.

OBSESSED: THE EVERLASTING “ANGIE”

Leather jackets. no matter it’s summer, fall, autumn, or winter, you absolutely able to wear it in various season. Especially when jackets, in general, are worn mostly hanged by your shoulders in this year’s style.

Thank god i have my leather jacket again, after the old one is literally torn out. Here is the new one, i called it “Angie”. It always make me feel protected and becomes my reliable “wing man” for my statement look.

THE BELOVED BLACK -QUILTED ELBOW- LEATHER JACKET.

No matter what season, I always obsessed with leather jacket, especially with biker look details. My obsession becomes worse when my ultimate muse, Kristen Stewart, also making it as her “second skin”. Well the big difference is she is endorsed with her friend, Nicholas Ghesquire, the former designer for Balenciaga.

The New Skin

After only 2 years wearing my classic biker leather jacket from ZARA(The old one is torn out because I kept them away in my closet while I was pregnant), I replaced it with another black leather jacket, only it is more detailed.

IMG-20130314-01084

IMG-20130402-01119

I am so satisfied to have found it! The details are incredibly just what I love the most. Biker collar, fine lines around the hips, strong shoulder, and quilted elbow. It is so androgyny but not having too much of a biker feel.

I love it more because I can wear it in 3 different ways! Buttons on, loosen up, or closed up.

TIPS ON CHOOSING YOUR OWN STYLE OF LEATHER JACKETS

1. Get your signature style

– types of jacket
Leather jackets are not always biker. Nowadays there are so much options and variations of materials you can choose from. For example, if you are a girl who wears mostly dresses, or all things feminine, you can choose leather jackets that has suit-like model, or even better, just like the rick owen’s leather jacket. It has loose front as the accent for the cover ups, so it gives you softer and affable feel on the leather.

– details
I go for studs, zippers, quilts, and line stitches. It matters so much to pay attention to the details, because your leather jacket will be worn out, and the only you can save is the natural basic accessories that already sewn on your jacket.

2. Colors makes all the difference to the leather
It almost seems obvious that colors are the fastest way to get the different impression and feel to your look. Not to mention when you are choosing you leather jackets. If I love black, it is the opposite to those who are opted more girly side. Neutral colors are best for you girls! Nude, white, cream, or even red, can make your total look easy going, but absolutely done!

3. Assembly it with the proper accessories and outfits.
Personally, when I wear leather jacket, I downsize my accessories to nearly none. Because having to put on the leather jacket itself –especially the real material- is already much, and quite heavy on your shoulders. The jacket itself already make a statement of who you are and what you want to be seen as.

For me, I always go for strong looking, rock, effortless, and fierce. So I only put on my statement rings, cuffs, sunglass or even my skinny leather headband that is also black, same with my jacket! Either way, I only put on one item as my main accessory.

KRISTEN STEWART’S SECOND SKIN

My muse, Kristen Stewart, has been endorsed with Givenchy with 3 different colors of its statement leather jacket, black, lime and red. Of course my utmost attention is on the black one. She is also stated that they are her second skin and will be devastated if she loses them. I couldn’t agree more!
