Hey Fam!

Many of you guys know #NYFW is in motion right now and if you are into trends or love to know what’s next, watching the shows is a way to stay ahead and get inspiration for the upcoming season. Yesterday I went to the Concept Korea show in Springs Studios and it started with iiseseoul very street style collection. I have to say now I am very inspired to wear oversized jackets and windbreaker sets!

Some of the things I’ve noticed is that Silk, straight skirts are here to stay. Also ruffles! On skirts, dresses and animal print is HUGE! I got “cool girl, hippie vibe” from the collection.

Last Minute Outfit Idea For Christmas Eve!

Christmas Eve is tomorrow and I know many of us are rushing to find the perfect outfit to impress all of our family members and let them know that we had the best year of our lives (even if it’s not true) but hey! fake it till you make it! haha

This outfit is perfect if you are going to somebody’s house to have a casual dinner. We all know we are going to eat A LOT so a pair of comfy yet stylish jeans paired with a basic black sweater SCREAMS comfort. I know you might be thinking “Mel but I am not trying to look like I am going to the mall, I want to look fab!” I hear you but if it is last minute, why not work with what you got in your closet?? Plus we are going to make this basic outfit super fabulous because we are throwing on top a very chic Moto jacket with a fur collar! see, we just made the outfit go from 5 to 100!! Of course wear some heels or booties if you are aiming to dance all night!
