Artist Spotlight: Regina for Nails by Regina

Heyyyy!


Sooo as we all know, the Internet can be a very interesting and unusual place but under all the craziness is a ton of talented designers, artists and total superstars. During a brief session of insta-viewing on my instagram app, I stumbled onto an amazing artist with a unique canvas base…NAILS!

This unique diva is Regina a nail tech based out of Miami, Fl. and has been making a huge name for herself locally and world-wide. Being the girly-girl I am, I couldn’t help but be intrigued by the different ways she manipulates clients nails with amazing colors, shapes and inspirations. Her designs are HAWT, FUNKY and FRESH, influenced by different works of art, fashion designers, musicians, and unique creations that inspire the things she sees day to day. Her work inspires people to continue to work hard on their craft no matter what it may be because you never know where it can take you!
Check out some of my faves from her work!

Style Tip: What to wear, under there!

20120627-220207.jpg

Listen up Ladies! Summer is here with a vengeance and its HOT! Those bright maxi dresses, funky colored jeans and white shorts are the perfect pieces to stay cute and cool in the heat BUT we MUST make sure we are wearing the RIGHT under garments! I’m pretty sure I’m not suppose to be able to read what’s on your butt through your pants and if there’s a little to much jiggle in your wiggle, you MUST tighten it up! I know some under garments can be a little too hot and uncomfortable from time to time, but there are great options out there to help you keep it tight and right in between work out periods! White and light clothes should have solid black or nude pieces underneath, and boy shorts are great alternatives to thongs under maxis for jiggle control. Check out some mo great options!

Louis Vuitton: Summer 2012

20120625-210411.jpg

Creative Director Marc Jacobs, not only known for is amazing ability to destroy the fashion industry with his amazing creations and innovations, he is known for super collaborations with amazing artists! This summer I am so excited to see his newest ideas with the Japanese Artist Yayoi Kusama! This lady is a really unique individual. She makes these amazingly elaborate works of art using only dots and great color. Dots inspire her because its a representation of herself. She feels like shes a little dot living among millions of other dots. Her art almost keeps her mentally in check. She travels back in forth from her art studio and mental institution that she lives in to paint complete rooms with her signature style. She also recently did a recreation of one of my favorite story tales “Alice in Wonderland”!! It’s amazing and can’t wait to see her designs on the LV pieces! Check out some of these amazing looks I found so far.

Bloggin’ Baby!!

Heyyyyy!

Hope you guys had a good day today! Me not so much…work was a little crazy and people can be freakin Craz to the E! Definitely was a hot one but not as bad as yesterday!
So today I was able to use some of my mixing and matching skills to create my look for today. I have had this floral button down blouse from Forever21 for YEARS and never was able to wear it because it was too low cut and couldn’t find the right tank to go under soooo what I did was wear it BACKWARDS! Why the heck didn’t I think of that before?? SMH! Well it worked out perfect and buttons down the back made for great detail! Paired it with my Paige Denim Jeans, Nude Steve Maddens that were 20 bucks, my favorite Louis Vuitton Patent Bag and some sassy army candy from Marc Jacobs, Nordstrom and Forever21!
P.S. fedora hat otherwise know as my “Ne-Yo” look lol from Urban Outfitters<;;<;; store gets me in trouble allll the time.

Check Me Out!!!!

Hey World! Welcome to my Blog!

Heyyyyyyyy
So this is my first blog! I’m very excited actually. Up late and decided why not start now. I’ve been thinking to do this for a while after being inspired by my day to day retail environment, compliments I get on my fashion sense, things I see on instagram, the weather , televisions shows, just everything really. I try new brands, stick to some old ones, mix designer with affordable and when I can’t find it, I make it!
My love for fashion started in college when I met my roommate who was fun and edgy, mixed and matched and was girly like me and that fashion love grew bigger the first time I styled a client from head to toe for an event and she referred a friend!
Fashion is freedom, you can literally recreate and reinvent yourself with old and new , colors and hardware, and that makes me happy!
Can’t wait for you guys to see my ideas!

Cee you soon <;;3
