Enter The Dragon

How hot is this trend? On the surface it' so feminine but if you take a second look, has such an edge. Black and red, juxtaposed with florals and graceful curves; no one does Yin & Yang better than the orient! Try to be classy though and don't overdo the prints or else you run the risk of looking like a cheesy circus act and I mean that in the worse possible way! For some reason people don't believe in practicing restrain, God only knows why. Less can really be more!

MY TIP: You can really hit the nail on the head with this trend by choosing bigger, looser shapes and incorporate prints minimally.

Blood Orange

It has been a busy past couple of weeks, but I'm back with a passion and you will be getting some great posts very very soon! This is a post that I'm loving! Orange is so bright and such a great option for summer. I love the idea of an orange blouse with light denim, or a pair of white pants, (Karen Walker did it right!)

MY TIP: It can easily be overdone, and to avoid looking like orange sherbet make sure you tone it down with different colored items!

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!
