Do you want to be the most fashion forward person at prom? I am here to help you do that. Being fashion forward doesn’t mean you have to have the most expensive dress. It is all about how you style the dress to fit your personality, body shape and look.
Determine your style:
Everyone has their own style. A way of dressing that feels the most you. Take a look at your closet. The pieces that you wear the most often are keys to uncover your style. Line up those pieces and try to use 3 key words that would link all those pieces together. For example, Girly, Lace and Floral / Dark, Graphic and edgy
Find the most flattering Fit/Cut of the dress for your body shape: This step is super important. Crop top and a maxi skirt might be the trendy thing to do right now. However if you are wider in the mid section crop top might not be the most flattering cut for you. If you are a perfect hour glass then princess ball gown will hide your curves and will not be the most flattering cut for your body shape. Make sure you go into different store and try on different dress shapes so you can determine what is the best dress shape for your body.
Pick a Flattering Color Scheme for your skintone: If you have a cool undertone (meaning your vains are blue or purple) then Jewel tone colours will look the best (Eg. pure white, black, royal blue and pink) If you have a warm undertone (meaning your vains are greenish/olive) then Earth tone will look better on you (Eg. Ivory, brown, orange and green).
Accessorize: You don’t have to go over the top with accessories. Best rule to wearing accessory is to always take off 1 after you have finish with accessorizing. Most people tend to over accessorize. Another easy to follow rule is – Choose 2 our of 3 – Meaning if you go with a necklace then you can either go with a bracelet or a pair of earrings (Never bother). So out of the 3 being necklace, earrings or bracelet you can only wear 2
Look up Inspiration: If you are still stuggling feel free to look up fashion magazine, fashion blogger or celebrity for inspirations to help you look the best on your prom.
Remember be true to yourself and wear something comfortable, you don’t want to spend the whole prom night trying to keep a dress from falling down.Here are some examples of creative prom dresses that is fashion forward this year:
CROP TOP AND LONG SKIRT PROM DRESS
The crop top and long dresses are so in this year. Seen on many celebrity. You can mix match the colour like taylor swift did or match the colours like RiRi did. The best thing about wearing this to prom is that you can break up the crop top and skirt and wear it again.
BOHO LACE PROM DRESS
The bohemian style has made a major come-back this year. With store such as Free-people and anthropologie poping up. Wearing Boho style dresses to prom will make you stand out. Grab some flower crown or choker. light colour lace dress or fringe dress and a pair of boots. You are good to go.

In 1880, Levi’s founder Levi Strauss created the first denim jacket. Back then, denim jackets were simple, often with a boxy masculine silhouette. Now denim jackets have become a very trendy stable worn by almost everyone I know and even celebrities.
I am here to break down the different types of denim jackets and how to wear them.
FANCY DENIM JACKET I call this type of denim jacket fancy because you can wear it to a wedding if you wanted to (No I’m not kidding… you will see brides rocking denim jacket over white puffy dresses) The fancy denim jacket are often embellished with gems and sequins. A darker denim or white denim will elevate your fancy look. Opt for a short and tailored denim jacket to be worn over fancy dresses which won’t cover up the dress too much.
Try mix medium denim jacket such as denim jacket with leather sleeves; studded denim jacket or mix patch denim jacket.
Over-sized Denim Jacket Over sized denim jacket have recently become very popular. This jacket creates an edgy and bad-ass look that will keep you comfy and stylish. Try styling it with leather leggings or distressed denim. Grab a toque and you look like you are not even trying, but so chic.
Denim Bomber Jacket Bomber jacket has made a come-back recently. It is a short jacket similar to a flight jacket, but with a thick lining typically of sheepskin. However, designers have been experimenting using different materials to make the bomber jacket and that includes denim. The union of denim and bomber jacket created this adorable number. It is light and versatile, great for the Spring and Summer season.
I hope this this helps you out. And will encourage you the explore the world of denim jacket. It is such a stable and can be worn with anything.

Spring is here! After the long gloomy winter, it is so nice to feel the warmth of the sun. Seeing the sun inspires me to create and change. I always use the beginning of Spring and the end of summer to reinvent my wardrobe. The thought of no longer having to put on a heavy coat or two layers of bottoms to go out is so exciting. I will box all my winter clothes and hang all my spring/summer clothes. Even though Spring brings relief from the bitter winter, it also brings the dramatic fluctuation of temperature. The unstable temperature makes styling outfits harder. I have compose a list of spring trends and tips on how to combat Spring.
Casual Fringe – Fringe trend is not new. You often see it in Boho style or in Western cow boy styles. However they have a more casual touch this spring. Often found on tank tops and accessories this year. (see fringe post for more details)
Sexy Shoulder – Time to hit the gym and work on those shoulder muscles. This spring is all about showing off the shoulders. From open shoulder tops to shoulder cut-outs, everyone will be showing some shoulder skins (see Showing Off the Shoulders post for more details on how to make this look more practical)
Crop Top – Since Miley Cyrus brought back crop top in 2012 and 2013. It just stayed. The crop top trend continues to dominate the fashion industry. However this Spring 2015 crop tops are made looser with a boxier fit. So anyone can rock the crop top look (See crop top post for more details).
Floral Print: Surprise! Floral print again for Spring trend. This time the floral is more bold with special colours. What can be more spring than floral print (see Floral Print post for more details)
In movies or snacks for the kids. Recently this popular food in north america has under go some changes. I found myself trying different types of popcorn snacks and here are few of my favorites:
1. Sweet and Salty Popcorn: heavenly combination.
Orville ($4.89) or Smart Food (around $3) both carries sweet and salty popcorn. Prepoped and ready to eat out of the bag. Can be found from Walmart or Shopper’s
2. Skinny Pops: for all the health conscience eaters. This popcorn is probably the healthiest one you can find on the market. No artificial anything and it taste just like normal popcorn if not better. This is the best popcorn when you are watching a movie and you just want to stuff your face. It can be bought from Costco at around $6
3. PopCorners : This is what I am snacking right now and it is by far the best one out of them all. This is a popcorn chip like snack. Or should I say popcorn flavoured chip. It is retailing at around $5 at Costco.

This song is Tina and Jared’s First Dance
A promise of a wedding,
That two hearts truly make,
A vow to be loving,
To guide, to give and take!
Always love bright vibrant colours in the summer. So I have a bright yellow tank top. Bright orange jeans and royal blue blazer. Why not wear them together? This is what I end up with. Mix colours and have fun.
I hope I am not the only girl who hates her own feet. From my ugly toes to dryness. Any feet problems, I have it. Now that it’s flip flop season, caring for feet have been added to my routine. After a long time of experimenting. I find the most helpful way to combat dry feet is to massage the “Vichy Podexine Foot Cream” (bought mine at shoppers drug mart) after shower and before bed, then pile on vaseline. You can wear socks over your now lathered in cream feet. Personally, I don’t like wearing socks to sleep. Hope this helps some of you out there. Let me know if you have other tips to combat dry feet. Or if you tried my method and it worked or didn’t work. Comment below.
