How to Wear a Black Leather Skirt (and Shopping Ideas)

how to wear a black leather skirt leopard shoesDo you have a black leather skirt?

It’s a very stylish, easy to wear wardrobe basic, ideal for Winter and the Mid-season (because it’s too hot for summer)!

The thing I love the most about a black leather skirt in Winter is that it looks amazing with black opaque tights and black ankle boots, and with this base you can wear anything on top.

It’s also a great idea for parties. Wear it with a sequinned top or sweater and you instantly have a comfortable, easy to wear, very cute look.

Besides it’s super versatile because it looks great without tights and with a lot of mid-season shoes.

You can choose a mini or knee-length skirt, straight or with some volume (but straight skirts are easier to combine).

Here are some photos to get inspiration and also some shopping suggestions, from a new online store that has a lot of great brands: EscapeShoes. They deliver for 35 countries.

If it’s really cold, always wear opaque tights instead of the socks or tights on the photo.

How to Have the Best Holidays Ever

ddffe789125533faf77bf94a25ef7321This was my problem with the holidays:

I kept saying yes to things I didn’t want to do because:

  • It seemed like the “right” thing to do,
  • People could be disappointed or angry if I didn’t do what they asked,
  • I should be kind and sympathetic to people (even if that meant being unkind and disrespectful to myself)
  • I should think of others before I think of myself.

And that was supposed to make me feel great because I was this perfect and good person who always thinks about other people first. The problem is… there aren’t perfect, always good persons, for obvious reasons ;)

This is called lack of boundaries, the inability to say NO.

And this only leads to one thing: you feeling completely depleted, tired, overwhelmed, desperate, angry, resentful, and so on.

Once upon a time I was this YES woman who always said yes first and thought about it later…

It always seemed like the correct thing to do and I didn’t even check my calendar. Sometimes I tried to think about it for a while (can I really do it?), but my answer was: “I probably can but if I can’t I’ll call you later”.

So I started feeling “abused” because of this. But the truth is I was the one abusing myself. If you know someone who will always say yes, who will you turn to when you need some help or something done? Yeah, you guessed it :)

Now I’m not the YES woman anymore, and I’m…

What to Wear for Christmas and New Year 2014

What are you going to wear this Christmas and New Year?

I love dresses because they always look great and feminine.

The holidays are a great opportunity to wear them. You only need one piece to look awesome :)

I have a lot of suggestions below and the great part is that they all look amazing with black opaque tights and black ankle boots (with flat or high-heels). Just add a fine cardigan and leather jacket or fur coat, and you’re ready to go! If you don’t have some of these pieces to combine with the dresses, take this opportunity to buy them because they’re essential wardrobe basics, which you can wear for every occasion.

Here are the dresses, most of them are classic pieces that won’t go out of fashion.

Designer Dresses (Net-a-Porter)

If you can’t afford these dresses (YET ;)), get inspired and look for similar ones in other stores.

How to Buy a Gorgeous New Bag

Wanna know how to buy a bag you adore?

There’s only one secret really…

If you can’t afford the real thing (and who can?), get inspired with the cutest designer bags, and search for a similar one.

There’s a lot to choose from, and you can get inspired in blogs (PurseBlog) or designer sites (Louis Vuitton).

Here’s an example:

I love the “Magnolia Lockit” from Louis Vuitton. But because it costs approximately $4000, the best solution is buying a good leather bag, similar to this one ;)

How to Always Have Time to Look Amazing

Lately some of my amazing clients have been telling me how they feel like they don’t have time to invest in their image and style because they have so much going on in their lives right now.

And I can totally resonate with them, because that’s exactly how I felt a few years ago… like I didn’t have time for anything.

Now I feel like I have time for everything because, as odd as it may seem, the real issue isn’t time at all. We all have the same amount of time in our lives and it’s only how you choose to spend it that makes the difference between living the life of your dreams… or not.

You actually “create” time in your life by setting your goals and priorities, and if one of your goals and priorities is your image and style, and you really realize the value of spending time on that, you’ll make time for it, I can assure you ;)

So, what’s the value of investing your time on looking great?

You should definitely ask this question to yourself and write what comes up for you but here are…

Three Benefits of Taking Time to Look Great

  1. If you’re here, you obviously love fashion and style and when you’re spending time doing something you love, you feel valued, respected and happy.
  2. Investing time in your image and style is a part of self-care and extreme self-care builds extreme self-esteem, self-love and self-confidence.
  3. If you love fashion and style I bet you also love art…
