My new fashion inspiration.

                                    Hello Darlings, Welcome back to my blog
My new fashion inspiration.

 

 Phillip Plein

He’s cool, fresh, stylish some say he is over confident he says he is building a fashion empire  -But I say he’s a creative genius and my new fashion inspiration.

If you’d asked me a year ago who Phillip Plein was  I’d  probably replied, “Who?” or “,  Uhhhh, Is he an actor someone important I should know ?” Well, He’s not a household name in America — yet…so If youre wondering who  Phillip plein is?

                       well, darlin’ wonder no more. cause I Got you!’

 Plein is a designer who has been designing for the who’s who in music, and Hollywood for almost a decade. He is known for his elaborate spectacular runway shows, and exceptional over the top edgy designs. The 38-year-old  Plein says he is a self-made Millionaire who’s fashion journey began in Germany with an investment from his father. Initially, Plein started in furniture design —wich also included dog beds.Today he labels for men, women, children, with an annual gross of around $226 million, and has 80 boutiques worldwide.

if you’ve been paying attention to my blog you know I love a bit of bling, mix with a bit of class and edginess. Well, Phillip plein design brings everything that I love together and multiplies it by ten thousand.

plein design pushes the envelope and definitely goes over the top, it is a mash-up of bling, leather, and studded denim with Swarovski crystal banging bling with rock and roll influences, and a streetwear feel.                woah mama mia (that’s a mouthful)

My Fall Fashion Uniform – Simply chic!

fashion uniform

Welcome back to Shays fashion closet!

How lovely to have you here with me once again! I’m Shay and today day  I will be sharing my fashion uniform with you which consist of some of my all-time favorites and  go-to trends  that I basically live in. So, grab a cup of somethin’ delicious and let’s start chatting  about my fab stylish uniform!

and these stylish finds below.

my fashion uniform   my fashion uniform2my fashion uniform 1

So I’ve evolved into my own signature style or fashion uniform, as some call it, Nowadays, I find that my style is pretty consistent, I mostly wear skinny jeans (pants) High waisted pencil skirts, cotton Sheath Dress, oversized chiffon tops-big favorites of mine are Blazers, statement jewelry pieces, and classic flats I rely on these key pieces to add pizazz and character to my outfits. Having a signature style /uniform helps me to express my personal style, personality and the image I want to portray, I enjoy looking mostly polished and classy while smelling good, when I am at home, I seek elegant furnishing and a calm surrounding — so why wouldn’t that reflect in my style?

I personally have long been a fan of stripes, my obsession with stripes has  definitely gotten out of hand. I had no idea I had so many striped pieces in my wardrobe  until I started writing this blog– I am a sucker for a good stripe piece and a stylish blazer -they are  my all time fav fashion staples for this time of year!

Stay tuned -I will post a pic of all my favorite tripe pieces from my closet  on the next post.

There is definitely  something undeniable freeing about knowing what style works for you .The best way to create your own unique fashion uniform is to Invest in several pieces and specific styles and classic cuts that you love and just basically looks chic on you.

After all, your clothes are talking, whether you know it or not, what you wear says a lot about you.

One of the few things you can control in life is your style and appearance. Therefore, make sure your clothes are saying what you want them to say about you.

Do you have a  fashion uniform or personal style, or maybe a few go-to outfits on heavy rotation? I’d love to hear about the pieces you gravitate towards time and time again.
