How I'd Rock Kenzo

I didn't used to be a fan of Kenzo because, to be honest, I don't think they knew who they were. But things have changed recently. They have developed a very certain style and sense of who they are as a brand and I love the direction that they have gone in. It's a bit wild, while still being fresh and hip. It's welcome to the jungle,  Parisian style (at least that's the best way that I can describe it!)

So, in honor of the reopening event of the Kenzo Boutique in Kuwait (it's in Phase II, The Avenues FYI) I am doing this post. I created these two looks around my favorite Kenzo pieces. Look 1 is totally me, I love the pairing of bright and heavily printed pieces contrasted with the streamlined white shirt and the patent pumps. The second look is how I see Kenzo; a funky take on classic pieces. What is more classic than a pencil skirt with sling backs and a clutch? Then when you add bright colors, shapes and designs to those pieces, you elevate them to a more contemporary and edgy level.

So enjoy and make sure you follow me on Instagram (@my_pinkelephant) for a play by play of the event tomorrow evening!

Color Guide - Spring/Summer 2013

My whole concept since my not so distant beginning has been to bring fashion trends to you guys, whether they be prints and styles or colors. However, color is my passion, which might make sense considering my Graphic Design background.  I love how colors can take us to a certain time or place and evoke emotions just like smells and sights can. So I decided to give you my picks for the hottest colors for this Spring/Summer season. But don't worry, I'm going to be doing Colorific posts on all of these, I had to give you a sampling! So enjoy and make sure you stay tuned for more!

What I'm Loving ♥

How is the weekend treating you my darlings? Guess what?! I finally got my car! YAAAY! I'm totally in love with it and initially I wanted a completely different car. My mom had to force us to go to the Kia dealership and I reluctantly agreed. I'm so glad that we did, because it's great! I got it just in time before the great heat wave that's going to hit us soon and all of these pieces are things that really need to be in my summer wardrobe! On a side note, I really need to make a special trip to Dolce & Gabbana soon because I am just so IN LOVE with everything that they're doing!

Pretty Yellow

In case you didn't notice, the weather has been beautiful! I just bought a car and I'm still waiting for it to arrive, and if you know me, then you know that I have no patience. AT ALL. So I'm waiting, and watching this gorgeous cruising weather disappear right before my eyes :( I'm so disappointed but there's still a chance I might get to enjoy it a bit. I'll keep you guys informed and hopefully I should have my new baby in two weeks! So while I wait, I decided to give you a bright and cheery post! Yellow is all over the runway and will really be a big color all summer long! I love how designers are really embracing this sunny color but beware that  with all the retro styles coming back, it's going to be so easy to look like a scary blast from the 70's past. Other than that, enjoy this fresh and energetic color! 

MY TIP: Choose a shade that suits your skintone. Yellow can really make you look awful if not correctly done!
