Perhaps it was Black Sails that gave way to this exaggeration but the voguish flair is here to stay. I must admit I was a bit obsessed with the male characters and their costumes for four seasons. Captains James Flint, Charles Vane, Edward Teach, Jack Rackham and John Silver were brilliant men ahead of their time in wardrobe and accessories that spoke to my inner Spanish DNA… and those belt buckles!
The sexy beautiful drape of the sleeve paired with a slim pant or jean and a delicious pair of pumps is all you need to balance this silhouette to take you from desk to dinner. Be sure to tuck a structured clutch under your arm for all-out style. Featured are several interpretations of the statement sleeve to pay tribute to “black” sails from catwalk to sidewalk.
Tie the look together with sleek hair, an intense lip and a thick cat eye with my Darkside Matte Lipstick and InkJet Eyeliner. For maximum drama let your eyes do the talking with my new Gazelle lashes to add volume to the corner of your eyes. One of four new lashes in my Lovelight lash collection.
Happy Fashion Friday! Take notice, but not cover, that the hemline is unmistakably mod yet far from reserved this spring/summer season! Call it mini or micro this 60’s inspired look is all the rage and screams legs for days.
Exposed shoulders are also just about everywhere albeit off-the-shoulder tops, blouses and dresses that can be worn quite casual to extremely formal. This is a flirty and feminine look you must try while keeping in mind a moisturized luminous glow or bronze goddess skin.
Blue is a beautiful color all year round, deep sapphire for fall and winter and bright cerulean during the warmer months. Sadly, the color acquired a bad rep for makeup, only associated with the frosted eye shadow look of the 70’s.
Here’s how you can incorporate a fresh and flattering blue eye into your modern wardrobe without looking dated.
Happy Fashion Friday! At Laini Cosmetics, we are drooling over the gingham trend! This is not your grandmother’s, typically portrayed in movies, 50’s style house dress. This is a chic, bold patterned original.
The best part about wearing gingham? You do not have to worry about accessorizing. The pattern stands alone and for those of us who do not have the time to style an entire look, gingham is perfect.
Whether you are wearing a sun dress or trousers with halter top, gingham can be worn simply with a sharp pair of sunglasses and a cute, but functional tote.
