Monthly Fashion Favorites: June 2011

And the June Stylees go to...

There's something about the gentle color of this dress combined with the simple yet futuristic belt that makes me stand back and say "Wow, Rose, you look amazing!" The metal detailing adds a harder edge that making it a step above.
Rose McGowan 16 June 2011

I think it's the slight vampirey touch to this look that attracts me.
Chloe Sevigny 6 June 2011

Though her expression is not looking so fabulous, I'm always a sucker for the prairie/hippie/gypsy/boho look, especially when it's combined with a western inspired, tan leather belt. This look is so wonderfully Free People. Oh, and congrats on the great bod, Kirstie!
Kirstie Alley 22 June 2011

The insanely bright dress, combined with the almost cartoony make-up, somehow just works. When I see this ensemble, I think, comic super-hero going to a comic book ball, and because I secretly wish comics were real, I can't get over this look!
Emma Watson 5 June 2011

The soft, flowing shirt combined with the leather pants makes her look killer!! I'm sweet and pretty, but I can still kick your butt!! Hmm, more comic books are real fantasies again...Ha Ha

Menswear Inspired is IN...Just in Case You Haven't Noticed

Absolutely love this look! It works as casual, glam, or nostalgic. 
Wanna tone down the man vibe and give it a sexier feminine touch? 
Wear it with a silky, low cut blouse and super high stilettos.
For a softer look, wear your hair down with gentle waves, with a more pastel shade of fabric.

Trend Alert: The Skinny Belt

This is a trend that I think is quite adorable...the high waist, skinny belt.
Wear it with your cutest summer dress.

Trend Alert: Jumpsuit Much?

Not a trend for me, but a current fashion trend nonetheless. So if you can rock it, high-five to you!

Trend Alert: Futuristic

Think the futuristic style of Tron is affecting current fashion trends?
Look below, and let me know what you think.
Hmm, I wonder if Tron fashion will have as huge an impact as Pirates of the Caribbean and its skulls?

The subtle detailing of this dress gives it a futuristic look.
Keri Hilson 7 June 2011

The stitching and metallic fabric scream space princess!
Camila Alves 9 June 2011

Miranda's dress has more of a Firefly fashion feel, which I super love, while Ashley's is a bit more Jetsons.
Miranda Kerr & Ashley Greene 6 June 2011

The odd seam placement and cutouts make this dress futuristically chic.
Jennifer Lopez 3 May 2011

Paris Hilton 4 May 2011

Paris's dress and Jane Fonda's (below) both have a reptilian, Alien-esque feel that inspires thoughts of spaceships and Star Wars.

Style and Beauty Tip of the Day: Coconut Oil, Some Fantabulous Stuff!

So I've been using coconut oil on my hair, sometimes on my skin, for about a month now, and HOLY MOLY, what a fabulous difference it makes. My hair is so soft and satiny after using it. After washing my hair, I mix it with my conditioner and apply them together. Then I twist my hair up into a tight bun, and finish my shower, which for those of you who know me, takes about 30 more minutes. Then I rinse my hair in cold water, however, there is usual not much to rinse out because the oil and conditioner have soaked into my hair by then.
Remember, do not rinse your hair to the point of squeaky clean, only rinse to the point of silkiness. 
Coconut oil can also be used as a prewash.
Also, don't use too much at a time, or your hair will look super oil. It may take a few times using it before you find the right amount for your type of hair.

Here are some links with more information on the benefits of coconut oil.

Trend Alert: Can We Say Blazers?

This has to be one of my all time favorite looks. A blazer works thrown over most anything, especially one with it's sleeves rolled up. Hmm, maybe I've got a Miami Vice fetish or something...

Cindy Crawford 29 April 2011

Jordin Sparks 7 May 2011

Of course the look is great for men as well.

Monthly Fashion Favorites: May 2011

So it's been almost three months since I last posted. Whew, what a slacker!! ha ha 
My 2011 Rehcy Vonne collection and the 2011 Creative Ambitions Night of Fashion had to come before blogging. Sorry, sorry to all my readers. 

Now on to more important things...
For my first returning to blogging post, I'm posting some fashion favorites from May.
Here goes...

I absolutely love this look; it's stylish, sexy, and gives off the feeling of power. What's not to love?
Rihanna 22 May 2011

Egyptian inspired? Futuristic? Not sure what. I'm going to say a little of both; add some crazy, overly done epaulets and you've got a Stargate costume. Whatever, I'm a sucker for anything Egyptian, so of course I adore it!
Kerry Washington 1 May 2011

Another Kerry hit! Gotta love a leather jacket over a flowing maxi dress. This is actually one of my own staple looks.  :-)
Kerry Washington 9 May 2011

Simple, beautiful, fabulous.
Olivia Munn 12 May 2011

Had to pick this picture because of the hilarious old school, playboy feel. Uber-fantastic!
Robert Pattinson 1 May 2011

Over the top sex appeal! Wowzers!
Kelly Rowland 22 May 2011

May's win goes too... Emmanuelle Chriqui!! The blazer, the hat, the flares...super yum!
Like sexy, super spy. I would wear this look everyday!
Emmanuelle Chriqui 10 May 2011
