So excited about this post,my first DIY!!! In the middle of going through my accesory box trying to figure out what to give to charity and what to keep of course I opened my vintage box and realized that it was all gold and silver.The loss of color was depressing and I wanted to give myself the challenge of spicing it up by myself without any new additions.I know this sounds crazy but the first thing that came to mind was to use nail polish to create my “master piece”and so I did,I chose my gold vintage choker because it was the one piece I knew would keep me entertained while painting.The hardest part about this challenge was choosing the right colors and the harsh realization that I had to be prepared to finish my favorite Revlon Top Speed (nuevo) all in the name of a DIY post.Hope you enjoy my step by step picture show and the end product!
Sitting on the plane looking to my right at a thick bodied young lady with very big breasts having enough cleavage to put everybody on the flight inside was a sight to behold, it was maybe the worst 2 minutes of my day. I remember when a lot of cleavage with the big breasts hugging together was sexy but time has past, so has that trend, its over, move on.
I realize that many people need to do a bit of time traveling to the present because I see so many ladies in so many things that were sexy last year and even five years ago. I remember when wearing your jeans low showing your butt crack in those “hipsters jeans” were very sexy but now that’s almost like being a stripper in fashion, now its all about high waists and the more conservative looks along wit straight denims.
It dawned on me that maybe I should do a “things you need to have in your closet” feature. I have read a million of these lists and some of them make no sense and are absolutely ridiculous. Now im going to share what you really need to have in your closet.
A CLASSIC DESIGNER BAG-Invest, I know $3000.00 might be a lot to take in for a classic designer bag but it lasts forever and what do you want to last forever you ask?. My obvious choice the Classic Chanel shoulder bag of course (pic)you all know how I love Chanel. The word classic is a strong word used by fashion gods and CandyRenee to describe an item that can and will never be extinct to the fashion trends around the world, It will always be keeper it has has pretty much a universal “keeper” style, that effortless simplicity that brings out the class and excitement in the most boring outfit. I am truly in love
A BLACK DRESS
Everyone knows about the little black dress right? It will never fail you,when you have no clue as to what to wear to an event just pull it out wear a statement neck piece,sum nice heels and you are good to go.
A WHITE DRESS-I know you have probably never seen this on a blog before but think about it,if a party has a color theme its usually white isn’t it?, yes I hav heard of black parties, and pink parties but all white parties are the most popular especially in the Caribbean urge you to invest in a fabulous white outfit, if you love to party you will be needing it.
A BLACK OR WHITE BLAZER JACKET-This goes for men too Blazers are awesome just throw it over a dress you wore just the other day and you are good to go you think you look too casual ,even if you are wearing something regular as a pair of jeans the blazer will make a world of difference, I always find nice blazers in forever21 and H&M reasonably priced waiting on you to pick one up!
A NICE SWIMSUIT Tropical girls always need lovely swimsuits why? we have the best beaches of course!!!!,we need to make a statement even when we are on the beach or to that special beach event im from Jamaica we always have beach events and everyone plays bikini dress up.Its needed!
THE PERFECT PAIR OF JEANS-WOW! This should be an investment, My best advice is get a solid color know many people who have a lot of jeans and all are the same colour,maybe a slightly different style but that’s it and I know many people who have 2 pairs of jeans and you would never know mix it up with belts, sew pockets on them just for a day have fun with it, and most importantly always make sure investments fit perfect and the type of material will last remember not every expensive jeans is a good investment,buffalo,guess,express,true religion are good labels to check out.
“THE SERIOUS OUTFIT”-All ladies need a im serious outfit, maybe for big meetings or interviews every lady has that time when they need to put on their game face and game outfit, mine is a white thin turtle neck top from Topshop.com and my black pencil skirt from Charlotte russe,I also have a loose fitted black pants, I don’t remember where I got that from but all 3 show my dedication and seriousness especially when I put on my “medicated glasses” I look super smart and business like.
Last but definitely not least as far as statement pieces go,i would advise ladies to posses a nice scarf that will instantly change the look of any outfit,you will know this from the colors and the quality if the scarf or even the label,a statement neck piece and an outstanding brooch the prices can go as low as $12.00 in forever 21.The reason why these statement pieces are so important is because simplicity goes a far way,there is nothing wrong with a white tee and a pair of nice jeans but there needs to be a wow effect,it doesnt matter what you are sporting and thats the reason for “statement pieces”.
