Hello Frugalistas!
Presiona Aquí Para Español!

Art Basel Miami Beach 2012 was an incredible experience. The art, the designs, the parties and also the fashion. During this time of the year, fashionistas and jet-setters come to Miami to showcase their most daring and artsy outfits, and enjoy the cool weather.

Ludovika Koch is a young fashion designer and model who really caught my eye. Her creative and inspiring designs are innovative and very reminiscent of the androgynous pieces from Jean Paul Gauthier and Christian Dior. Despite of been so young, Koch is a very creative and innovative girl who knows how to use different materials, textures and artistic techniques to create fashion masterpieces. Her talent its undeniable and her fascination with vibrant colors, flora and fauna make her designs very romantic, feminine and sophisticated. Ludovika uses fashion as a way of creating vivid art by turning the fabrics into living canvases. Continue reading

Tailored Threads: Amp Up A Classic Combo!

Hello Fashion Fans,
Haz Click Para Espanol

If there is one classic “All-American” girl combo is tees and jeans. There are many reasons why this combination is so beloved among frugalistas. They are staple pieces, regardless if used separately or together, that can be used for day or night. A plain t-shirt can serve as focus piece during hot weather or as a layer during colder times. They come in a variety of colors, fabrics and shapes (V-neck/ boat style/ high-neck) that complement everyone’s body type, style and comfort level.

Jeans, on the other side, are simply a must-have on EVERY wardrobe. It doesn’t matter if you like pieces that are romantic, edgy, contemporary, vintage or glam, jeans will take you anywhere and through any scenario. The key its to pick the right rinse for the occasion. Lighter denim washes are perfect for day time, darker denim rinse works always, whereas leather coated jeans are perfect for night-time. But wait! where do pastels and bold colors fit in here? Well, let me tell you: ANYTIME! The amazing thing about jeans with designs, patterns (floral/ brocade/ ikat) and in vibrant hues, it’s that they can easily be taken day-to-night!

This time I’m showing you how to amp up the boring jeans & tee combo by using key pieces that will take you from the supermarket to the bar! All you need are the right accessories to turn this 2 piece outfit into 4 different ones!
BASIC PIECES:
 * Black tee in V-neck because it’s the most flattering shape for every body type.
* Medium to Dark rinse skinny jeans. These are not your cigarette, super slim fit jeans, but rather the ones that leave room to breath!

1st Look:
Relax-Errands: I need to pick up the dry cleaners, go to the supermarket, get the kids from school, drop off meds for a sick relative, etc.
* Basics
 * Add a single layer necklace which makes the tee look a bit more polished.
* Add a leopard thing belt, because how can we live without a bit of animal print on our outfits, and tuck in the tee on the front.
* Add a men’s inspired watch to give some toughness, and few bracelets or rings.
* the weather call for riding boots, but during warmer climate, a pair of flats or sandals will do fine!
* Perfect handbag: a tote or carryall!

The winners get paid, recognized with their names on the printed tees and the chance to have their work actually worn!! They can send as many designs as they like and only a limited edition of each design its manufactured, which means fresh and current content!! Now, this wouldn’t be THF unless the prices were totally frugalicious, right?!! Well my friends, Teeology seeks the haute frugalistas of the world, and to reach that, they have priced their gorg tees from $20 to $40!!! They are 100% cotton, super comfy, come in different shapes and styles, and the designs are amazing!! I don’t know about you but I’m SOLD!

Hello My Friends!!

We have been speedily and consistently witnessing the growth of the nail design craze!! From YouTube tutorials, to blog posts, to nails salons, this fun trend can make an outfit go from blah to boom!!  Some salons charge a hefty price for the seasonal update (from $50 to $130), I mean, who can’t forget Kelly Osbourne’s $250K black diamond nails! Others are more frugalicious, like NailBar Midtown, and charge about $25; however, for those without the cash or outside of Miami, I have your solution in a simple and fast Nail DIY!

I have decided to do a super quick and easy Halloween or Harvest nail tutorial!! Its inspired on my Ombre Nails Previous Post which has all the exact steps on how to do shaded nails! This time I went for a Yummy Candy Corn color combo, orange/yellow, and added a bit of glitter to this fun Nail DIY!! I spent $4 in all 3 colors (thank you Target!) and it took me about 15 mins to do the design. Continue reading
