Care to Wear My Logo?

The other day, while sipping my Mocha Frappuccino at Starbucks, a middle-aged guy passed by wearing Burberry plaid pants. OMG I almost choked on the whipped cream (not to mention having coffee go through my nose) at the sight before me.

Now there's nothing wrong with wearing Burberry, in fact they're a very respected brand. But I do believe that if one decides to declare to the whole world that he/she can afford to buy luxury brands, the wearing of designer logos should only be kept to a minimum. A simple and discreet emblem or logo on a shirt is tasteful but should one decide to wear it the whole nine yards, that person is a "bloody walking ad". I guess this is a perfect example of style gone bad, extremely bad.

If you want to wear the logo then go for the bag, umbrella or scarf BUT PLEASE NOT THE WHOLE OUTFIT FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!

How to be a Princess

All of us women (even those female at heart) would agree that we all desire to be princesses and live the life of one. However, if you happen to be in a third world country where money is hard to come by as water is to the Gobi desert, would it still be possible to wear your tiara (or even own one) and live happily ever after? I don't know about the "happily ever after" but I guess we can start by looking the part.

I truly believe that if a person has a sense of style and a fabulousz (mispelling intentional) personality, even the lack of money would not be a hindrance to looking like royalty (Hear! Hear!).

PROJECTION is everything dahling! WORK IT!

Try to do the following and see the "princess" evolve before your very eyes:

1. Visualize Envision yourself at your best.One thing that could help would be to look at a fashion magazine and imagine yourself being the model on the cover. It has been said "What the mind can conceive, it can achieve". So girl, you better inhale and hold that chest in.

2. Own a Black Dress
I don't mean any black dress, I mean Shift dress or A-line. Think along the lines of Breakfast at Tiffany's and make sure it fits you perfectly. I can't reiterate enough how versatile a black dress is.You can put a strand of pearls, have your hair in a ponytail (if it's long), and wear some oversized shades and voila!

3. Accessorize Having these (TIARAS, shades, scarves,shawl) give your black dress endless possibilities.

The Black dress you see above is by designer extraordinaire MICHAEL KORS.
