Summer is here and its time for the brights to come out! Neon Yellow, Hot Pink, Lime Green, we do not discriminate.    Hues like these are great ways to wake up your outfits and make a notice-me statement. We suggest to go wild find essential accessories in hot colors, or selectively pick one piece of your wardrobe.  My latest goodie are these bright hot pink Hilser flats from Aldo, which I have noticed they compliment every single thing in my closet and always helps me grab the attention of my peers.

Hilser Aldo Shoes – ON SALE online now $34.98!!!

But there are many options to choose from,  the fun is smartly pairing them with regular outfits and surprise with unexpected details.

Xhilaration® Yellow/Green Neon Patent Canvas Clutch – $19.99

Lets go fancy with this patent leather loafers by Matt Bernson – $169

Kimono-Me

We are not talking about the exaggerated Geisha-like fashion, but actually one in small dosages.  I recently bumped into kimono styled tops that have been re-introduced in several retail stores.

Kimono All Styles

Found this inexpensive option at Forever 21 for $13.99.

The trick of choosing the right top is selecting lightly loose kimonos that have delicate floral prints, in vibrant colors and have a silky feel.  Now, in order to balance out this loose fit, is to wear them together with skinny jeans in classic blue or neutral colors.  Let them shine and be the center of attention.  In addition, and very important, do not, even if you think is necessary, add any other Asian-inspired accessories.  We wouldn’t want you to go overboard.  The goal is to look sleek and natural while trying this trend.

ImageThe Avengers movie is out now, and even though I love the cool and smooth ways of Iron Man, I can’t deny the fashion determination of Thor.  In its honor, I have been wearing my new finding, the Rose Gold Wing Cuff from Wildfox.  I am completely obsessed with this piece, can’t quite put a finger on what is it that caught my eye, between its glam rose gold cover, its audacious wing design or its super hero cuff feel, everything exudes sophistication with a twist.

Rose Gold Wing Cuff at $75.00

Whatever the case it is, this is a keeper.

Wildfox Couture is a free spirited knitwear line based in California. It grew to offer swimwear, shoes in collaboration with designer Jeffrey Campbell and most recently in launched a funky jewelry line that offers a selection of attractive rings, bracelets and necklaces.

10K GOLD ANTIQUE RING SET W/ HEM. CHAINS $ 40.00
10K GOLD OWL NECKLACE W/ CRYSTAL WINGS $ 75.00

Gold high pumps are so back on!! I can’t remember when was the last time they were popular, but lately this gold accessory is taking over night and day fashion. With jeans, dressed up or with a casual day dress, they always seem to make a bold and feminine statement, which definitely are worth investing.  I cant quite figure out what is it that caught my eye, but their mature and classic look but still soft and young, add a special touch that complements any outfit.

I found these great and multifunctional ones from lulus.com for only $30; Gold never looses its value, lets see if this is right always.

Recycling Edginess

Last week I bumped into one of a kind design by Tirana Jewelry, and was ecstatic as I found the perfect Earth Day jewelry piece. Tirana Jewelry items are made from oxidized recycled sterling silver and brass material.  The creator behind the brand, Graciela Fuentes, knows perfectly well how to balance old with new, as she plays with the mechanical and intricate details of vintage watches, keys and medals.  She creates necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings, brooches and cufflings using parts she stumbles upon all around the world.   Her unique and edgy style of dismantling a jewelry item to create a totally different piece while using the same parts, works well with many styles that search vintage/classic fashion with an edge that separates them from the rest. As many pledge to do their part during Earth Day, we invite readers to analyze ways we can all help improve our earth and make it better and suitable for future generations. Happy Earth Day!

The Sony Ericsson Open is in full swing in Miami and the excitement and love for the game is at everybody’s reach. With a full range of international and national players, Miami’s sunny days will be fun to enjoy as every day, starting March 19 through April 1, 2012, players battle their cunning speed, wit and precision on the set.

But besides this fascinating game, there are always great opportunities to bump into celebrities, as the Sony Ericsson Open is known to be a Hot Hub for personalities as Shakira and Anna Wintour, who come down south to enjoy the games and follow tennis Masters as Rafael Nadal, Petra Kvitova and Maria Sharapova.  With over 78 Male and 79 Women line up, everybody’s taste will be satisfied. Are you in the game?
