My Style: The Definition of Me

with one comment

If you know me well, you know that this look can’t get any more Nadine.  I always play with trends and mix up my look and yet you’ll always see me go back to my original simple tailored look.  Are you thinking, what is there to this look?  My answer to you would be, some of the most stylish people we know, have the simplest looks ever. Examples include Carolina Herrera known for her never-changing white shirt matched with a black skirt, Tonne Goodman, Vogue’s Fashion Director, known for her classic american style and Karl Lagerfeld known for his black suit, white shirt, white pulled back ponytail and black sunglasses.  

I don’t mean to compare myself with these fashion icons, but I want to share with you a lesson that I have learnt throughout the years.  It is always fun to play around, but once you stick to what looks best on you, you’ll exude confidence, comfort and most importantly style.

My Style: Natty Nautical

leave a comment »

Who doesn’t like the nautical look?  There are so many ways to wear it that no matter what your personal style, you can wear nautical.  I opted for the more tailored nautical look blended with a little Rachel Zoe.  Rachel Zoe because of the wide legged jean which I am very excited to bring back out from my old jean closet.  Wide legged pants are huge this fall/winter and I couldn’t be more excited.  I topped of the jeans with a white tank, my nautical stripped Zara blazer and a nautical inspired Uterque scarf.

My Style: Fancying Fall

leave a comment »

I am super excited for fall because I love mid-season looks.  Today’s look is inspired by this wonderful renewed vintage Bishette bag.  The pinkish red color with beige and brown, the texture of the chenille fabric and the vintage frame make this bag one of my favorite Bishette’s of all time.  This classic 1940’s shaped bag is perfect for a day out around town while also working an evening bag.

My Style: Back to Basics

leave a comment »

 

I desperately needed a basics shopping trip and what else to wear on a basics shopping trip other than BASICS. Being comfortable when shopping is important but also keep in mind that wearing something easy to slip on and off is also key.  These H&M pants, I got on sale, are so comfortable I don’t want to take them off.  Since last year, this jeans vest has been my favorite jeans item in my wardrobe.  I also wore easy flats so that I can quickly slip into shoes at Zara.  I also wanted to share with you some of the days buys, you will find them at the end!

Springing into Summer

Spring is almost over and the summer is kicking in, full power.  Taking on prints this summer season is a huge hit.  My Forever 21 dress is a couple of seasons old but the colors and the print look on trend.  The cream cardigan is my favorite Zara purchase of the season so far, actually that and a pair of shoes which I will wear soon.  I love the femininity of the cardigan with its delicate sleeve details.  Then I accessorized my outfit with gold earnings, bangles from all over the place, a beige Miu Miu bag and camel Christian Louboutin heels.  My cardigan is the only item of this whole outfit purchased this season.  So dig through your closets and I am sure you’ll find different items to wear that are stylish and on trend this season.

Since I have been living in work clothes for the past four years and that will all change starting next month, I decided to tribute my first ‘My Style’ post to my favorite work outfit.  Boyfriend blazers are key items for any working woman, they are business attire appropriate at the same time trendy.  This grey one is my favorite.  A new recent work attire MUST are high-waisted cigarette legged pants.  I have them in black, grey, and beige and can’t take them off.  They do need a certain body shape and must be worn with heels.  The brooch adds a Chanel touch to my outfit, it is Forever 21, and the black silk belt adds a different texture.

I got a comment from a colleague of mine, a guy actually, that said my outfit reminded him of a famous designer.  I asked if it was Karl Lagerfeld and explained to him what he looked like, and his response was “YES, Exactly!”  He made my day.  

PS.  Sorry the pictures aren’t the greatest of quality.  I will soon be fixing my camera or getting a better one.  Wish me luck!  If you have any suggestions of good professional camera’s please send them my way.
