Frugalicious Fashion: My Stella McCartney Interview!

Hello Couturistas!
Presiona Aquí Para Español!

When given the opportunity during Art Basel to interview and meet the fabulous Stella McCartney, the first thing that comes to mind is: What do I wear??!! To say that I was beyond ecstatic to attend the exclusive event, at Saks Fifth Ave in Boca Raton, its an understatement. I have admired this woman for years. Her poise, talent and creativity are undeniable, and they all run in her blood. My mom, as a notable Beatles fan, raised me admiring her father’s music; however, as I grew up, I became more fascinated with their amazing story and that’s when I discovered her mother Linda McCartney. An incredible photographer, musician and vegetarian cook. I think its fair to say Stella grew up surrounded with an affinity for art, nature and beauty, which she has imprinted in her designs.

STELLA

Every single piece of Stella McCartney’s collections evokes a story filled with romanticism, classiness and sensitivity for the world. She does not use any type of fur or leather in her designs, rather, she promotes caring for our world through her eco-friendly fashion. Her commitment to save the environment, and protecting the lives of animals, are noticeable with her sustainability and recycling philosophy. Stella, despite the fact that the world prefers fast-attainable resources instead of environmentally-conscious ones, works hard into assuring the materials used in all her collections come from organic, biodegradable, natural or renewable sources. Regardless, if this might mean less profit or worldwide exposure, her company its committed to providing eco-chic alternatives to all frugalistas out there.  photo 1

Stella McCartney has released pocket-friendly collections for Adidas, Gap and H&M. Although her name line collections are a bit above the budget of the average frugalista, the fact that they are long-term wearable and mother earth approved, makes them investment pieces towards the future of our grandchildren.

Hola Couturistas!

Cuando se te da la oportunidad durante Art Basel de conocer y entrevistar a la fabulosa Stella McCartney, lo primero que se viene a la mente es: Que me pongo??!! Decir que estaba super emocionada de atender este evento tan exclusive en Saks Fifth Avenue en Boca Raton es poco! Yo he admirado esta mujer por muchísimos años. Su talento, creatividad y elegancia son innegables, ademas que son características que corren por sus venas. My mamá como una notable fan de los Beatles, me crió admirando su música y soñando con un galán de cabello así. A medida que fui creciendo la historia de esta familia me fascinó mucho más cuando descubrí su madre Linda McCartney. Una increible fotógrafa, música y chef vegetariana. Es justo devir qur Stella creció rodeada por una afinidad hacia el arte, la belleza y la naturaleza, la cual ha dejado impresa en sus diseños.

Cada pieza de las colecciones de Stella McCartney trae consigo una historia llena de romanticismo, clase y sensibilidad por el mundo. Ella no utiliza piel o cuero en ninguno de sus diseños, en vez, promueve la importancia de mantener limpio nuestro planeta a traves de su moda eco-chic. Su compromiso para salvar el medio ambiente y proteger la vida de los animales es notable en su política de reciclaje y sostenibilidad. Stella trabaja arduamente para asegurarse que los materiales usados en todas su colecciones provengan de fuentes renovable, orgánicas, naturales o biodegradables; esto apesar que la mayoría de empresas prefieren recursos rápidos de obtener en vez de aquellos con conciencia ambiental. Sin importar si esta filosofía significa menos ganancia o publicidad a nivel mundial, su compañía esta comprometida a proveer alternativas eco-chic a todos los frugalistas.

Stella McCartney ha hecho colecciones para Adidas, Gap y H&M que son accesibles para el bolsillo, sin embargo su linea de alta costura tiene precios que son un poco altos para el frugalista promedio. Vale recalcar que estas piezas hecha de materiales con longevidad, y aprovadas por la madre naturaleza, son una inversion hacia el futuro de nuestros nietos! 

Que te parece el compromiso de Stella McCartney por la moda con conciencia ambiental? Recuerda: Es Siempre Una Cuestión de Estilo No De Economía! ♥Sígueme en Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram & Tumblr: HauteFrugalista♥

Frugalicious Fashion: A High-Low Affair!

Hello Fashionistas!!
Presiona Aquí Para Español!

I rarely ever go with the trends. I have this thing where if I see everyone wearing a certain type of fashion or accessory, I just put it in the back of my closet until further notice. I think there isn’t anything worst for a true fashionista than going somewhere and encountering someone wearing the same shirt, dress or shoes!! This year, I have done that with lace dresses, jewelry with skulls or beads and neons. However, if there is one trend I’m beyond glad it’s everywhere it’s the High-Low hem.

405119_547545075271030_430927298_n

I have been a fan of this style for years because it complements my shape well and it gives that sexy short look without the showing-too-much-butt trashiness. It feels elegant, feminine, sophisticated and young, everything that I look for in fashion! I’ve had dresses and skirts in this hem for a while even-though they are hard to find; but not anymore, thanks to the huge comeback this trend has made, now I can find it everywhere!

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!
