Inspiration – MARINA LARROUDE

by kristy

Marketing director for Style.com and brazilian beauty, anaemia Marina Larroude is most commonly spotted looking effortlessly chic. Again, a women that lets her outfit do all the talking. My favorite look is the grey long sleeve top half tucked into a ‘mullet’ black pencil skirt with black heels, so perfect.

Printed Pants

by kristy

Spanish Vogue stylist Barbara Martelo is a great example of someone who has developed their own ‘look’.  The 36 year old fashionista has this ever-so-effortless-sexy-casual look going on. She is  not afraid to push the envelope, medicine hence the studded and pinned jackets with leather pants. I’m sure that being tall and thin helps immensely, buy information pills but notice that she plays up her best feature (legs) and doesn’t over do her look with too much makeup and fussy hair. She lets the outfit do the the work.

Hey pretty baby with the high heels on…

by kristy

Throwing on high heel with a pair of jeans and a t-shirt instantly makes your outfit into a ‘Look’. There’s something about them that exudes sexy and not to mention the favor that high heel do for your calves and tush. As someone who rarely wears heels, diet I still appreciate and fawn after these pieces of wearable art.

Animal Instincts

by kristy

The primal power of animal print is undeniable and something that has never gone out of style. This eye catching print can be worn so many different ways and looks great with just about any pop of color. For someone that is a little hesitant to try animal print in fear of standing out too much or looking overdone, decease try accessories first. Handbags, shoes, bracelets, scarfs, your options are just about endless. Here are some examples that I have put together to help inspire you. For the more daring, don’t be afraid to add a couple different pop colors to your animal print like the women wearing an animal print jacket over dark colors and added red lips with a yellow bag. So fun!
