Major Shades of Fall

4 Sep

So school has started & the humidity has dropped a little, so now I’m starting to finally believe Fall is in the air (then again, I don’t want to speak too soon). Now it’s time to slowly translation ourselves from those bright neon colors & fun, funky patterns to some subtle, but colors you won’t expect to add some “ump” to your fall/winter wardrobe.

Of course we have those neutral colors, or base colors. You know the browns, tans, navy, & so on. But the Fashion Godswere kind enough to understand we fashionistas like change. We like personality. So surprisingly they’ve added some pinks & bright reds. Not to mention the mustard yellows & teals. I don’t know about you, but I’m super, EX-Pee-Ala-Do-siously (I know that’s not a word) excited!

So here you have it, the Major Shades of Fall.

Sty(LUX) Chronicles: Target Style, I Love You!

27 Jun

IFB Project #101

If you’ve been keeping up with me here on the blog & on my other social networks, you already know how serious my love for Target is. That’s definite my go to store for EVERYTHING. But mostly, that’s my #1 pick when shopping for clothes.

With the variety of both your weekend style & looks for the office, Target has it all. Not only are the prices very reasonable, but the quality is great. There’s not a day that goes by, where Target style is not incorporated in my outfit. I can honestly say, I’m legit addicted!

The best thing ever, are the collaborations Target style does with awesome designers and brands. I’m trying to wait patiently but I’m so anxious for 3.1 Phillip Lim to drop his collection on September 15th of this year at Targets worldwide.

It goes without a doubt how badly I would love to work with Target Style. Promoting, hosting, & networking worldwide as the face of Target Style. I have goosebumps with just the thought of it.

Here are some of my favorite outfits where Target Style is featured!

Sty(LUX) Chronicles: Summertime White-Out

21 Jun

Had to toe white is like a breath of fresh air. So free & pure, no wonder it’s so Summer time worthy. With just the right amount of accessories, paired with that pop of print or color, White never looked so vibrant.

    ————–How to wear White (Stylux Way)————-

1. Paired with Metallics: Now we all know how much of a hit metallics were, & still are. So two hot trends in one, BOMB!

2. Weekend White: That relaxed, comfy look, but still stylish enough to follow trends. Here you have it. White denim paired with flats are perfect for on the go.

3. Pop of color (or print): When I say pop of color, I really mean A POP OF COLOR! So go ahead, throw on those neon sandals or that bright colored clutch, & not to mention those bold print heels, & those accessories full of designs.

4. Pull out the delicates: These soft, free flowing materials adds that extra pure-ness to your whites.

5. Textures: Adding texture & depth to your classic white, makes it stand out just a little more than it already does. Adding attitude & personality.

Cropped Top Diaries : Look #1

13 Jun

The cropped top & midi skirt set trend is all over. Amongst us fashion bloggers, our favorite celebrities, & top designers all understand & love this trend. In an earlier post view here, I put together this monochromatic striped cropped top & skirt found at Top Shop & surprisingly Beyoncé rocked it as well!

I’ve been finding some great things on this new app Poshmark. Some cool “poshers”, with some cool stuff. I found this posher located in Texas who was selling this custom made bodycon cropped top & midi skirt set. Instantly, LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT! Purple is not my color, but it became an option once I saw this.

Bodycon: very tight fitting material that is now my new found best friend.
The material was perfect! Holding in all those problem areas (and there are a lot), & flattering those areas we love the most!
