Haciendo Lo Mas

Este es la primera ves que escribo en mi blog completamente en español. ¿Por qué? Por que aunque mi primer idioma es el español, tantos años en la escuela enfocándome en otro idioma hizo que la manera que yo escriba en español no sea tal vez la más correcta. Hoy decidí que no voy a dejar que eso me pare de lo que quiero lograr. Entonces ay le vamos.

En la moda ay muchas tendencias. Si no sabes que son tendencias, tendencias son cosas que van y vienen. No duran mucho y muchas de las veces si no lo compras pronto estarán fuera de moda cuando las tengas. Esto no significa que no puedas seguirlas. Hoy voy hablar de como podrás seguir tendencias sin tener que quebrar tu banco. Te darás cuenta que tal vez no tengas que ni comprar nada.

No. 1

El Esmalte es una tendencia que no es nueva pero la puedes usar a tu beneficio. Por ejemplo, el color de el 2018 es Ultra Violeta. Si no tienes algo en tu armario en Ultra Violeta, no hay problema. Encuentra tu esmalte favorito en color Violeta (o un color parecido) y lista.

No.2

Usa toques del color en tendencia (como platicamos en No. 1) con su color complementario. El color complementario del Ultra Violeta es el color Amarillo. No tiene que ser exactamente amarillo, pero si tiene que dar con el tono de violeta que estarás utilizando. En las fotos veras que tengo puesta una blusa como un color amarillo casi oro que tiene unas flores en color violeta. Los diseñadores de esta blusa utilizaron los colores  juntos por que son colores complementarios.

No.3

El tercer y ultimo tip que les voy a dar para usar el color en tendencia, es utilizar el maquillaje. El maquillaje es otra manera de que pudieras hacer resaltar la ropa que tengas puesta. Cuando usas los colores adecuados puedes ir de andar básica a luciendo a lo mas. En esta foto estoy utilizando un pinta labio en el color “Matte Glam” de Milani con un brillo violeta de Urban Decay. Los labios resaltan, pero también no le quitan la vista a la blusa. Así funcionan los colores complementarios.

Muchas gracias por leer mi blog. Se les quiere mucho, dios me los bendiga. Si les gusto, denle like,subscribanse, compartan y comenten lo que quieran que yo cubra en el futuro. If you would like to read this blog post in a different language this site has google translate.

XOXO

Happy Valentines Day!! 💕

I know some of you are going to be very busy tonight. As for me, I will be at church reading, because this year Valentine’s Day is also Ash Wednesday. Whether you are going out, or staying in you deserve to feel like a queen/king (guys, you too deserve to feel loved) today. That is why I’m here for YOU/HOU. This isn’t just a fashion blog it’s a lifestyle blog. If you read my ‘about me’ then you know it all starts with Jen (me/an actual person), and I care about YOU. I care about my clients, and it helps me discover your sense of style.

I’m sure you were expecting another picture of me, but this is Lisa. She knew that she wanted to wear this beautiful top from New York and Company, but she needed help with putting an outfit together. As soon as I saw the top, I thought of Christian Dior one of the masters in delicate, and beautiful feminine designs. I also took Lisa’s personality to consideration, because she is not delicate. In fact, she is fierce.

That spirit of hers triggered the Yves Saint Laurent inspiration in me, and that is why I decided to add some black to add contrast. That is what makes this outfit, Parisian classic meets modern day chic. **Bonus tip: tucking in the top and adding a belt defines the waistline. Raising up the skirt to the waistline also makes legs appear longer. Try it and let me know how it works for you.

Now, I am giving you the same opportunity as Lisa. If you need help putting an outfit together whether it’s from scratch, or using something you already have comment on here/FB/instagram with what you would like to incorporate and I will give you some ideas.

Thank you Lisa for allowing me to style you for the Galentine’s Party. Also, big shout out to Jexse Studios for the Photography and Alchemy Salon Houston for the hair style for Lisa.

Color 101

I’m back, and with what I promised. Welcome to Color 101!  I’m here to give you the basics of color. Have that one fashion piece that you bought only for the color, and now don’t know what to wear it with? No problem! Maybe, these illustrations can help you out. (Bare with me, I made these illustrations, and may look like a fifth graders art project.)


Primary colors are the colors on the color wheel that you can’t make by mixing other colors together (Red, Yellow, and Blue).


Secondary colors are the colors that can be made by blending primary colors together. For example, Red + Blue = Purple.


Tertiary colors are the colors in between the primary and secondary colors. Some have more of either a primary or secondary than others. For example, red-orange, yellow-green, and red-violet.

Now that we got the basics out of the way…


Let’s move on to my favorite way to my to combine colors to my wardrobe. Complimentary colors are those that are across from each other in the color wheel. You probably haven’t noticed it, but complimentary colors are used a lot by sports teams on their uniforms (Astros- Blue and Orange, Lakers- Yellow and Purple). Don’t watch sports? Think of Christmas, Green and Red are complimentary colors. You could use this tool for your style needs too. If you look at my previous posts you’ll see me use this tip on my looks.

Here are some illustrations on how complimentary colors look together. Above, Red and Green. Below, Blue and Orange.


I hope this post helps you in some way. Feel free to leave comments, and if you’re having any color dilemmas let me know.

Just Bloom 🌼

Spring is a beautiful time of the year. Filled with beautiful colors, and if you followed my tumblr before then, you know I love playing with colors. If you don’t know how to play with colors in your wardrobe don’t worry, because I’ll be doing some color education blog posts later. One of the safest routes you can go is by starting with complementary colors. In the case of this outfit, yellow and purple.


The yellow top is balanced by the purple in the shoes, so it’s a look that draws attention from top to bottom. If on the other hand, I was only wearing the yellow shirt all of the attention would be at the top. I hope this gives you some ideas on how to incorporate color to your outfits this spring.
