Coachella🎡

It’s been a while since I’ve been on the grounds of Coachella Valley, but it will forever be in my memories. I can’t wait to one day be there again. If this is your first time going, or you are planning on going in the near future this post is for you. I’ll be sharing some of my must haves for Coachella. Let’s just say, I wasn’t completely ready on my first time in 2015, but I’m here to get YOU ready.

Tip #1– wear comfortable shoes. This one may seem like common sense, but you will be surprised how many people end up barefoot. Girls wearing sandals that bother them, and I get it we want to look cute. Just remember that it will get crowded (you will get stepped on). Guys, make sure your sneakers don’t rub or you won’t be so comfortable either.

Tip #2– The accessories I’m about to mention, are not only fashionable they are also convenient. Bring your favorite hat 🧢, sunglasses 🕶, and backpack/camelback 🎒. When you are finally at the front, seeing your favorite artist perform you want to fully enjoy it. You don’t want to have to squint, or put your hands over your eyes because the sun is in your face. You also don’t want to look back at the sea of people behind you, and have to give up your perfect spot to get water. Fill up your stylish backpack with a refillable water bottle, and you won’t have to worry about that.

Tip #3, dress in layers. It’s going to be blazing hot during the day, but could be freezing cold at night. Throw a light sweater/hoodie in your bag. Don’t have a bag? Tie it around your waist.

Tip #4- If you see pictures of people wearing bandanas around their necks, it’s not just to look cute. Although, you could really make them look good…it’s because there’s a lot of dust flying around and you don’t want to inhale all of that.

I hope these tips are useful to you all for your upcoming festival season, and have fun!! 💋✌️

Romance Is Key

Hi Everyone,

I hope that you have been staying warm and safe these past few days. I know that not just in Houston/Texas, but other states in the country we have been hit with this cold weather. Can’t go out to the MFAH, because it has been closed due to weather? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! Get yourself some hot chocolate, and maybe some pan dulce as I take you on a tour of “The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta” exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. This exhibit runs from Oct. 8th, 2017- Jan 28th, 2018. Hopefully, you will still be able to see this beautiful exhibition in person. I chose my favorite pieces for this article, and narrating it through my perspective. Enjoy!

Nothing shows people the art of fashion like, Couture. Couture is art. It is something beautifully crafted for a purpose, and with a vision in mind. When you see this collection, the first place in your mind is supposed to be Spain. I think of a matador waiting to make a move on the bull, and the woman wearing this dress is patiently waiting to take on the world. Calm on the outside, but full of passion on the inside.

If there’s anything that can make me hand my card over like a business card, it’s a beautiful dress with a dramatic back. If I could get married in this dress, I would do it in a heartbeat. It has that feel of the Givenchy dress that Audrey Hepburn wore in Sabrina in the 1950’s but with a little modern twist. You can just picture yourself wearing this to a Gala.

There’s only a few words I can speak in Russian, but this collection makes me wish I could speak it fluently. The beauty and elegance shown in these pieces just took my breath away. The dress all the way to the right is actually a wedding gown someone used. On this cold Houston day, I could sure use one of these beautiful coats. This was by far my favorite collection as a whole.

I love how Oscar de la Renta designed his clothes. He always had the women he designed these dresses for in mind during the whole design process. It’s not only beautiful, but it’s wearable. That is so rare for couture. That is why Oscar de la Renta is up there to me with Yves Saint Laurent.

 

Belle romance! Although the Russian inspired collection was my favorite, there were many of his couture designs that took my breathe away. For instance, this French inspired dress that Kirsten Dunst wore on an editorial photoshoot for Vogue to promote the Marie Antoinette movie. The details on this dress and its delicateness are EVERYTHING.

Rest In Peace Oscar de la Renta, in fashion heaven (07/22/1932- 10/20/2014). I will end this article by giving the biggest shout out to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston for hosting this exhibit. The pictures for this blog were a collaboration between Jexse Studios and myself. I will be posting more fun pictures, and random facts about Oscar de la Renta on my IG and FB pages throughout the week, so please be sure to follow @jenstylehou.

Love,

BOSTON ❤️MASSACHUSETTS


Gawd I love it heah! I've had an amazing amount of fun. I took this trip here with my mom, and I can honestly say I couldn't have picked anyone better. Let me just start by saying that this post won't just be about my outfits, but also my experience on this beautiful trip.

We started our Saturday morning by heading over to Faneuil Hall. A place for everyone! It has food, entertainment, and SHOPPING.

You know if I'm going to eat and walk around to eat some more…I not only want to look stylish, but I also want to feel comfortable. I opted for this floral print top, my favorite pair of jeans (cello), and put some gel insoles on my flats. I was ready to go.


No lie, Quincy Market was my absolute favorite. You know me, if there's something I love more than clothes is food (and family).

I love my STROS', but when in Boston a Red Sox game is a must! Plus, my favorite color is red. (Me and my beautiful mother opted for black with red as an accent color)

Let's just say, I was feelin' this outfit. Black faux leather jacket, T-shirt Dress, Chucks, and a Red Baseball Hat.


Let's go whale watching! This is one of those things that is on my 'things to do while I'm alive' list. I thought this outfit would be perfect. I was comfortable in my ripped jeans, t-shirt, a denim long sleeve blouse around my waist (that wasn't just nice to use to accessorize), and sneakers.

What I believe really pulled this outfit together was the small accessories such as, my heart shaped sunglasses, a small ring, and a thin necklace with the shape of Texas.

Something to know if you are traveling with me, I like to do things at the places I visit that I know I probably wouldn't do/be able to do at home. You know that saying, "When in Rome, battle lions"…is that not how it goes? Oh well, you get what I mean. Lol! Not only did I do something I have never done before, but I helped my mom face three of her fears in one trip.

Just look at how beautiful and happy she looks! You wouldn't be able to tell, that she would have never gotten on that boat would she have known it was going to the open sea. Lol! That was my bad, because I didn't know either. Until we got there.

If you hangout with me long enough, I will trick you into believing in yourself (Or something like that). – Me

I hope you enjoyed this blog post 😘
