While bohemian looks can come off as fun and care-free, it can also look a bit bummy and literally care-free if you don’t style yourself properly. The key to accomplishing a fun boho look is to layer with light pieces (unless you’re dealing with cold weather). Great pieces to own in order to accomplish this look are crochet or lace vest, linen tank tops, denim or crochet shorts, chiffon skirts with a frill, oh of course yes a belt! A belt would be nice (thick or thin).  If yore not the girl who wears skirts or dresses, there’s still hope for you. Jeans with laces on the side! Where? Well you can always buy a pair by the originator of this trend…Isabel Marant or settle for a pair from Forever 21.


Let’s not forget about your accessories, there’s always room for a fringe cross body, hobo bag, or clutch. Boots or fringe sandals will serve as strong pieces to seal your look. Sunglasses are also a plus, round frames or aviators, whatever style suits your gorgeous face.

The Oscars 2015 Red Carpet Review

87th Annual Academy Awards - Arrivals





The Oscars 2015 red carpet was beyond pretty women standing around waiting to curtsey, include it was a balloon of glamour. Not only did the best of the best designers make their make as their pieces draped over the world’s best actresses and women of power, there was a constant glow in spite of the drizzles of rain. These are my favorites. What looks were your favorite?

A Blooming Chanel

Let’s just start off by saying that the Chanel set alone was a blooming mechanical banquet. According to’s Tim Blanks, it took six months to create the 300 flowers on the set. Of course they started off as a dull bud and bloomed after being watered by a male model with a Chanel watering can. Yes, you heard it…they have watering cans. Just imagine a mechanical chic Chanel garden…yep that’s it!

If you aren’t in the spring spirit, get with it. The Chanel Spring 2015 Couture Collection has of course made us forget about the last collection. It’s amazing how Karl Lagerfeld has an overlapping form of creativity. He has the ability to blow us away in fashion every time. No collection can be possibly be his best because he always top the last with something greater.

One thing that I value more than ever are DETAILS. Details in your outfit can change your entire look whether its a bit of glitz or a piece of glam. Fancy buttons or heavy beading.

The Stylespiration Issue Vol. 1

It’s almost most Spring and Pre Fall is on the way (well kind of). I’m so excited about fashion week that I’ve been glued to every chance I get! Call me crazy but there’s something about the freshness of new fashion going down the runway. I love how we can be a flower child one season and a rocking rebel the next. Fashion is a rosebud that will continue to bloom. And now, here’s my latest obsession… sandals and socks. Yes, of course the unfashionable according to the not so fashion-friendly individual would thinks one who wears socks is a slob but I’m here to tell you different. There’s quite a few designers styling there collection this way but No. 21 is doing it best at the moment. Just look and see.No21_007_1366No21_009_1366

What brings this sock trend together perfectly is the designers choice of layering pieces. If you must wear socks with sandals that obviously means there’s a bit of chill outside. Allow your combination style piece to make sense by wearing a sweater and show a little leg with a midi skirt if Jack Frost hasn’t come to visit. The color selection also matters while pulling off such a trend. Caramel hues keeps this particular look (shown above) fresh, light and less of a drag.


If wearing a skirt during the winter makes absolutely no sense to you, wide leg cropped jeans (gaucho pants) may make you feel better. By the way, out with skinny jeans and insert, flared, bold, wide leg everything. Don’t say farewell to your skinnies permanently, simply tuck them away until they make their  debut another season.No trend goes away forever.

Cool Calm and Selective



One thing that I love most about the Stella McCartney Spring 2015 Ready-to Wear Collection is the minimalist strutting at her peak. The highest moments ( to me) of a great outfit is its ability to mesh naturally. No extra twist in your walk or a pull and tug at your skirt…but simply going with the flow. Although I can be the queen of accessories, there are times when less outweighs more and sometimes adding layering jewels could kill weigh down chic feather of an outfit. My point is to learn to balance your look and go with what you feel.  If your look is great with jewels so be it. Grab a detailed bag and go on your way. Sandals can also substitute as jewelry. This collection is for effortless days while remaining high fashion and chic. No one said pile on your entire closet and you’ll be the fancy one of them all.

Get up and get out!

Get up, get up! It’s time to get going. 2015 has graced us with her beauty and your time is now. If had any hesitations last year, just leave them there. The best thing about a stylist woman is confidence and drive. Rush to your dreams and do it in style. Read up on your favorite looks and make them your own. I’m in the midst of the ‘Tasha of Spring’ as we speak. No one ever said you had to look the same. The weapon is to be continuously chic and bloom in your own image. Water the garden and watch it grow! Happy 2015 to my followers! I appreciate you all like no other. Stride in style my friends.

Hop off of the typical train ride through your closet and have an adventure with the magic-carpet looks from Nicole Miller’s Pre-Fall 2015 Collection. The bohemian girl meets her inner gypsy and go for a ride. Every look is as cool, calm, and collected as we all wish to be on a daily basis. I love this collection because is it the perfect mix. Not too, girly but it has everything that would make you feel laid back and beautiful at the same time. Who ever said that you have to look or feel uncomfortable to reap the benefits of looking beautiful? Honey, take a deep breath and exhale the expectations of the world’s idea of beauty and create your own. What are the ingredients to becoming the beauty boho-gypsy? A fringe kimono, a pair of flare printed pants, a maxi dress [show your shoulders if you dare], thin necklaces [ chunky jewels won’t do the trick this time], a beaded cross body bag, and strappy sandals or heels. My latest post have been on Pre-Fall 2015 collections because you can only become fashion forward if you look ahead. Stride in style my friends.

12 Ways To Be a Chloe Girl




The Chloe Pre-Fall 2015 Collection is a great example of what a girl should look like on her best day in her best spirits. It may seem like these looks aren’t tangible because of the pricey tags that hang on them but that is so not true.

The key to a fashionable woman is her sense of imagination and her reality. The two can actually mesh well together. First, learn the color palette of the looks that you’re trying to create. Understand that designers are the best at giving us inspiration. No one said go purchase a sewing machine and fabrics and try to recreate the entire Chloe collection. Instead you can purchase pieces with similarities to the original collection and make it a style of your own.





Now that we know what look we’re going for, we need to make a grocery list. No, this isn’t your typical trip to Publix or Walmart but a list of items that you need to purchase in order to accomplish these looks.

1. White or off-white butterfly blouse.
2. A muppet coat.
3. Thigh high boots
4. A marble mixed blazer or sweater with warm hues.
5. Frill skirt.
6. Bohemian dress and top.
7. Camel wrap coat
8. Black cross body purse.
9. Something Lacey.
10. Wide leg trousers
11.plaid blanket scarf
12. Pussy bow or black ribbon

Clean and Chic





Clean,chic,pretty business is a great representation of the Marissa Webb Pre Fall 2015 collection. Not only should styling yourself become a lot easier, your pockets should also become a lot heavier.  Well that’s if you’re a cash carrying gal but you get what I’m trying to say. Looking forward when it comes to fashion will always save you money. There’s no need to invest in 5-second trends when you’re looking to have a style with a lasting impression. Cropped blazers have become my new “thing’. They’re easier to use as a layering piece without making yourself feel or look puffy or tight. A sheer blouse is a finishing touch, you can even choose to wear one with a pussybow, whatever fits your style is great. The vest in the picture above is darling and perfect to wear during the transitional time. You know like a warm day with a bit of a breeze? Trousers are a staple that can be styled in several ways. You can find an affordable pair at Walmart, Forever 21, Express, Zara, H&M, and a few other stores. Since black trousers are easy to come by, its great to make them apart of your daily wardrobe, you can style them up or down. Marissa Webb styled them up in this instance. You can also find stylish coats like those in her collection by racking up during the winter sale this season and holding onto them until next fall. Shop for hues that can be used for several seasons like great, black, army green, and ox blood. Here’s more photos of my favorite looks from the Marissa Webb Pre-Fall Collection. Enjoy.




Hear the Women of Chanel Roar!

_A2X1749_A2X1776_A2X0709_A2X1762_A2X1112 _A2X0709

Karl Lagerfeld has a habit of outdoing himself and of course he’s done it once again. It’s as if he’s in a race with himself and goes home with the golden trophy of trend each time. We all know that it takes a strong person to use their position in a positive way and that’s a trend that has yet to spread as fast was it should.The Chanel Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear Collection was indeed womanly and powerful. The set created for the show was Chanel Boulevard. Lagerfeld wanted the women to strut as if they were causally walking down the street. Growing up with a feminist mother, it was only right for Lagerfeld to have a fashion show with such a powerful voice for women. A representation of the new youthful Chanel woman and the depths of her strength. With the all of the chaos taking place in Hong Kong, the show and it’s message couldn’t have had better timing. Girl power!
