The white button down shirt is a classic piece of clothing that has been worn and updated over and over again. Not only are they versatile and can be worn with so many other pieces of clothing such as a classic pencil skirt for work, a pair of tailored pants, or tailored shorts. But the trend today is wearing this classic shirt with a pair of distressed denim jeans and let me tell you, it looks sexy, chic, and hot. Here’s an example of how to get this awesome look:

Lessons From Martha Stewart

9932c74239e31ba27782274466efeb9a

Martha Stewart is the queen DIY, cooking etc., and when it comes to any holiday festivity, her books are the first I go to for help, especially desserts. With that being said, she collaborated with Harpers Bazaar to create a self help video for “Lessons On Being Everything You’re Not”. She is after all, who else could give us such great lifestyle advice? You can watch the video below:

The Best Blue Nail Polishes For Summer

Seriously, summer is really the 2nd best time of the year next to Christmas. Well, correction, 3rd best after Easter! The open toed shoes and manicures galore, we have it all don’t we as women? But when it comes to choosing the best nail color it can be a difficult choice. I don’t know about you, but I am the most indecisive person, not just when it comes to nail colors, but anything in general. Enough about indecisions, lets get back to nails. When you think of summer what is the first thing that comes to mind? I don’t know about you, but the first thing I think about is the beach, deep blue sea water and sand. What goes with summer, sand and deep blue sea water? Magnificent manicured nails with the color of mediterranean waters. So, I shopped for us and found the perfect shades of blue for your next manicure or pedicure. Look below:

Selfies Anyone??

header

Taking “selfies” have become the thing to do lately and to be quite honest, I’m not a “selfie” person. I just don’t want MY face posted all over the internet, but who am I to question what anyone else does right? To each his own I guess. But the whole trend has everyone on tap, from everyday people to celebrities snapping pics of themselves at parties and at events, hey even at the Oscars!

It can be all in good fun and it has the potential to help those who need a little boosting of the self confidence. Whatever anyone’s reasoning for posting “selfies” it has definitely taken off like wild fire and will probably be around for a long time to come. Go ahead, post your “selfie” on instagram, Facebook, twitter and any other social media accounts, see how many “likes” you can get.

To get those of you who love taking “selfies” in the mood for more, watch THE best video for one of my favorite tracks right now from The Chainsmokers, appropriately called #Selfie.

How Do You Define Chic?

IMG_4929

Being chic cannot defined easily, it’s not something thats simple. Either you have it or you don’t. Although it’s not hard to obtain. You must feel it in your soul and thirst for it. I myself for thirst for chicness everyday and try to define mine all the time. We all have it inside of us if we tap into our inner self confidence and style.

IMG_4921

 

Style and Chicness is obtainable in us all. It’s not hard to fine or do and yes, sometimes being chic and savvy does come at a high price for our pocket book, but it doesn’t have to all the time. Search print publications, online publications, subscribe to blogs such as mine for styling tips that won’t always break the bank.

In the long run, always search for your inner chic and remember to be always be savvy.

What Is Your Fashionably Bliss?

IMG_4920

Instead of posting fashionable clothing, today I’ve decided to post some extremely fashionable home interiors. If I ever was so lucky to have the chance to own a home like these, I would totally have my interior the exact same way. Your home should emulate you and your style, your fashion sense and of course your comfort.

I would want this type of entrance if I lived in say.... England??
