Red Hot Leather Jacket

Hello my dears,

I have again failed on my commitment to post every day this week. But I have kept to my work out schedule so I have achieved some balance:) Today I want to share with you one of my passions: leather jackets. There is something about leather jackets that makes my knees wobbly and my heart rate higher. They are simply sexy. This leather jacket is made of patent red leather and it was stiffer when I bought it. It looks better with wear and it gets softer and softer with natural whiskers at the sleeves. It is not as shiny and glossy as in the beginning and the red color looks deeper and richer. The shine is achieved by treating the leather with Varnish, oils and synthetic resins. A lot of people confuse them with faux leather jackets. Faux leather jackets are fine if you want to be with the trend but if you want something that will last for a long time and get better with age, go for genuine leather.

What is that single item you are really passionate about?

SPRING ACCENT

Hello everyone!

You know how sometimes you have a glass of wine and you get unstoppable inspiration and flow of ideas. And other time, you have the same wine, in the same glass and in the same quantity, and all you get is a blank stare into the computer screen for 30 minutes. That is the way I feel tonight so I will keep it short and sweet. I can’t help it.

With this outfit I feel like I am half way into the spring. While the boots keep it chilly, the shirt screams spring. I have wanted the same shirt for a while in white and black version but I find this one works perfectly. What do you think is the color? I can’t put myfinger on it.

Magenta Jeans – Style # 1

Hello Everyone,
This past weekend I paid a visit to Target hoping I would snatch a piece or two from Jason Wu’s collection. I had some luck but that is coming in another post. As expected, I left the store with two more items I did not plan to buy – a pair of magenta jeans and a mustard skinny belt. The jeans are made of thin denim fabric with whiskers at the front. Although I prefer heavier denim because it provides a better coverage for those leg dimples, I like this pair as well. The brand is Mossimo – another Target – designer collaboration but on more permanent basis. For now, I think I am getting good value for my money.

Today I am also starting my work out routine with my hubby. I am so excited as I finally convinced him to JOIN the gym and he had to convince me to GO to the gym and use the membership I already have. When I go to the gym, I want to know how much for how long I need to do each exercise.I don’t want to have to think about it because I end up watching TV or other people and I look surprised when after 30 days of work out I see no results. I am doing the third routine on this link:

Shades of blue

Hello everyone,

I love beautiful nails like everyone else but it seems that they are last on my list of beauty procedures. So it was very surprising that I had the patience and success in doing contrasting tips nail polish application. Someone who is more verse with applying nail polish may not need nail guide line stickers but I can’t do without them.

Tall knee-high boots with knee-high socks – Style #3

Hello my dear beauties,
This is another look featuring tall knee-high boots and knee-high socks. This style reminds me a little bit of Liv Taylor in 1995 movie Empire Records. Most of you have probably not heard of it because you were still playing with your Barbies at that time 🙂

I love this sweater from Free People but I wonder about the quality of the cotton. It has stretched significantly after one wear and I am noticing little tears. I have also learned that the best way to treat your sweater is to hand wash it with gentle detergent without twisting it and laying it flat to dry. Most of you know that already but not myself as I have been dry cleaning my sweaters and it is not the best solution.

I hope you had the chance to enter my GIVEAWAY. If not, you can find more information at the end of the post. Good Luck and till then, style it up!
