    Shoes for your Summer travels!

    Shoes for your Summer travels!

    “What are the best shoes to pack when you are traveling? “

    When people ask me that question I always answer with a question, “Where are you traveling to?” As if you are going on a beach vacation you wont need the same shoes as if you are going on a sight-seeing trip.

    Either way, for your basics and essentials you will always need these. Ready? 

    First things first: A comfortable sneaker.

    You always need a comfortable sneaker whether you are traveling by plane, sea or land. There is nothing more uncomfortable than running thru connections on an airport with flip flops, or tying to catch a train while carrying your luggage and losing a flip flop on the way. Should I even start about the heels?!?

    There are many designers sneakers around that can give you the trendy, fashionable yet comfortable look we are aiming for.  

    I personally love the ragged look of the Golden goose sneakers and the trendy look of the Atlantic stars. Both range for about 500$. Of course on our site you can find them for a cheaper price!

    On our site for 150$ - click here to buy.

    I also love the casual yet chic look of these slip on sneakers Vince (about 250$). On our site for 50$ - click here to buy.

    If you don’t like any of those Nike’s are always a good option.

    Try to choose a style that look a little fashion forward so you can still can dress it up a bit 65$ on our site instead of 130$ - click here to buy.

     

    Second must option: The Platform Wedge

     

    What I absolutely love about this shoe is that they are so versatile that they are truly your must option for any vacation around the world. Why? Very simple! When you chose the right one this shoe can take you from the beach to best restaurant in ancient Rome and you won’t feel like you are wearing heels.

     

    The platform wedge can be worn with shorts, a bathing suit or with a gorgeous LBD. Remember to try and stay within your color palette so you can really use this shoe with most of your outfits. 

    A few good examples are the MIU MIU (about 495$ retail 75$ on our site).

     

    Le Silla in Multicolor (about 695$ and only 50$ on our site)

     

    Shoes Lorena's WORTH

     

    If you really have room for a third pair your best bet would be to separate the day from the night shoes. This way you opt for a day fun flat, slide or flip flop and a night heel.

     

    My day flat option would be this PRADA in white patent leather (retail for 65$ and on our site for 75$)

    Prada Lorena's WORTH

     

     

    And for the night time still I would go with a sexy, BUT comfortable to walk around shoe. Remember on vacation you might want to walk around before or after dinner, and you wouldn't want to miss on that because your shoes were killing you :)

     

    Miu Miu Sequins Paillete (175$ on our site, versus 895$)

     Miu Miu Lorena;s WORTH

     

     

    Of course you can never go wrong with adding more shoes, but unfortunately the airlines would beg to differ and who wants to pay those over weight fees, right?

     

    Enjoy you vacation!

     

    Yours,

    The (Jean) Shorts - The full guide to success !

    The (Jean) Shorts - The full guide to success !

    Shorts, Shorts, Shorts For the Summer

    Yes, we all know that for great shorts' legs you need to do lots and lots and lots of SQUATS. I'm not here to tell you that! Come on! You know me better than that!

    I believe squats or none we all deserve the right to wear (Jeans) shorts over the summer months. It is hot enough over the summer, so worry not I won't make you sweat any longer. I will just help you get your best look while choosing the shorts you love!

    Jeans Shorts - Really? Should I? Is it age appropriate? Day or night? How can I pull the look? Heels or flats? Which one? How? WHAT?!?

    So many styles! Cut off shorts, or knee length shorts, or fold over shorts, mid calf, shorty shorts, or WHAT?!? ...

    Dress up or casual dress down? pseudo sexy or all the way out there?

    I will guide you thru the best secrets to put together the "casual I never put any thought into it" look for the shorts! 

    So many questions for such an itty bitty piece of clothing right?!? 

    How to wear your jeans shorts:

    Rule number 1 - be comfortable, be you!

    Any style goes as long as you are comfortable, cut offs, shorty shorts, or even mid thigh. Just make sure you are comfortable in how you look in them and feel in them, take a look on a 3 way mirror and make sure you cover all the angles you want to cover. Remember if you feel uncomfortable you look uncomfortable! So feel it first!

    Jean Shorts Lorena's WORTH

     

    Rule number 2 - Only 1 statement piece!

    You do not want to be a fashion caution sign! Make a statement with one clothing item ONLY.

    Think about it, you are already wearing shorts. Your legs are bear, and unless you are a Victoria's Secret Super-model - which most of us are not - you will need a statement piece, besides the shorts of course :). One chance to impress! 

    If you choose a white T shirt, or just a plain old top, then the killer item would be the killing shoes.

    If you decide to go with plain old flats, then, a super sexy revealing top will do the trick.

    Get it? the statement piece is the shoes or the top, this way you distract from the shorts to a better fashion piece, because, who wants to do all those squats ?!?

     

    Jean Shorts Lorena's WORTH

     

     

    Rule number 3 - Wear a Purse - Why does it always goes back to the purse? LOL

    A MUST: Always wear a purse. Weather it's day or night always add that touch - that will make your outfit complete. I know, I can't live without a good purse, clutch, bag, oh well :)

    Jean SHorts Lorena's WORTH

     

    THE FORMULA

    Shorts -  any shorts

    One statement piece - top or shoes

    One plain piece - top or shoes

    The Finale - a great purse! 

    I think now you can have a better idea of how to mix and match your clothing with the jean shorts, or any shorts, and draw attention to what you want!

    As you can see above the boring old button down classic shirt is paired with sexy killer shoes, and this works :) - I would add an oversized purse like the Saint Laurent Sac du jour and it is a wrap!

     

    Now enjoy your shorts choice. 

     

    Enjoy!

     

    I say It's about time! Let's all go Birkin Style at our own budget!

    I say It's about time! Let's all go Birkin Style at our own budget!

    Birkin or Birkin style?

    Birkin or Birkin style? Many rumors, Many opinions, let's get down to business!

    WE ALL WANT A BIRKIN! Don't we? Of course we do! Why don't we all own one? Well, until they are priced reasonably and are available to all, like all designer bags, we can only dream of that. Fact is - most of us will never own one, not even touch one. But we have all seen one. If not in real life, then of course, carried around by our favorite celebrities, just pick one: Kim Kardashian, of course, J. Lo - check! Shall I go on? 

    Kim Kardashian Lorena's WORTH

    Hermes even came up with its own industry of silk scarves produced just for this precious bags - called the Twilly -  a thin long silk scarf to wrap around the handles of the bag, so we can keep it free of body oils and stains.

    Birkin Lorena's WORTH

    Check please? Sure! Birkin bag around - 15000$, add a pair of twillies, 400$. Total about 16000$ plus taxes.

    Now let's say we have almost 16000$ to spare, don't think you can just go and buy one. No, no, no you are to naive - speaking in Birkin lingo. There is a wait list of years. Not only that, you need to be registered with the brand to have bought at least one Birkin before. Not done yet! You also need to show a track record of buying other Hermes items as well, to show you Love the Hermes Brand, not just the Birkin. You see - they won't just sell it to you, until you prove to them that you are worthy of carrying a Birkin, Hermes bag. 

    If you can't beat them join them!

    Riding on the trend above, many high end Fashion houses, and other mass production main stream brands, joined in the party. They figured if we cannot beat them - Join them!

    You can call them imitation I call them inspiration! 

    This is the reason why Dior, Fendi and Saint Laurent bags are so popular these days! They have all gone Birkin style at a fifth of the price of a birkin. What am I talking about you ask? Here we go!

    Peekaboo - FENDI

    Meet the Fendi Peekaboo, like its inspiration the Birkin, comes with its own line of twillies, and can be pre-wrapped at the Fendi boutiques. Comes in all colors of the rainbow almost, and in 4 sizes, to fit any budget. From about 1500$ to 4000$.

    Fendi Peekaboo Lorena's WORTH

     

    DIOR - Diorever

    Meet the Diorever, or should I say The birkin style bag, from the Dior Fashion house. Ranging from about 3000$ to 3900$, comes in 3 sizes. Gorgeous, featuring 2 handles, a flap, a main buckle and two side circular magnets. Reminds you of something?

    Diorever lorena's WORTH

     

    SAINT LAURENT - Sac Du Jour

    Meet SAINT LAURENT's Sac Du Jour. The closest design to the Birkin, in my opinion, and at the best price. If this doesn't scream Birkin, then I will! At about 3000$ for the largest size, and now, get ready for this, comes pre-wrapped in, especially made ,Saint Laurent twillies... Did you scream Birkin yet?

    Sac Du Jour Lorena's WORTH

     

    Other brands

    Just looking around at all the fashion houses, you can see they are all making Birkin style inspired bags ranging from the hundred's of dollars (For example Coach) to the thousands (For example Louis Vuitton).

    The Louis Vuitton City steamer, coming from one of the biggest houses of fashion, comes to prove this is not a copy or an imitation, but truly a trend set to inspire all fashion houses to do the same.

    I guess the Birkin bag is not just a bag, but one of the biggest inspiring trends for this season!

    I say - enjoy the ride, go Birkin style at your own budget!

    NYFW - all bags celebrities took out for a walk!

    NYFW - all bags celebrities took out for a walk!

    Why am I even writing about this? Good question I say! The reason is very simple, today being the last day of New York Fashion Week, I sat back and watched carefully (wearing very comfortable clothes) at all the news, pictures, street style images, news columns, videos, read blogs, etc., all from the comfort of my own computer in (Not so sunny) Miami.

    What did I realize? Fashion is loosening up people!!! YASSSSSSSS

    What do I mean? Well, let me let you in in some fashion show's etiquette. It is "well known" that the models, bloggers, movie starts and celebrities attending fashion shows would showcase clothing and purses from those same designers, given to those people by those same brands for that occasion. All this to make us think those celebs actually LOVE those items, buy them and wear them so we do the same.

    Well, not so much this NYFW. 

    Why is that such great news? Because that gave us a great peek at all the classics, and fashion favs of all our beloved models, movie stars, bloggers, fashion icons and celebrities! So interesting! Lets take a look at what I have found!

    The number 1 Choice - CHANEL

    From the classic flap to the boy - we have seen them and love them all. Yes, I get this one! One of my personal favorites as well.

    The second runner up - YSL Yves Saint Laurent

    The Sac De Jour is a definite winer when thinking of day round tote. Yes I agree with this one too!

    YSL NYFW Lorena's WORTH

    Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and Hermes came up pretty close

    Those are very safe and classic choices for a politically correct celebrity attending more than one show a day, and you can never go wrong with those.

    Valentino - Last on our list

    Yup, as predicted everybody was obsessed with them - THEN. Now ... well ... not so much anymore. I see good deals on those very very soon! And they are still gorgeous, so be on the lookout for those on our website very soon!

    Personal Favorite - FENDI

    The Dot Com bag, yes I didn't know how I felt about it, now I know! The more I see it the more I LOVE that bag!

     

    FENDI NYFW Lorena's WORTH

    Fun Fact - The small playful clutch.

    I saw a lot of small fun clutches, many different brands, at affordable prices, from Coach to Chanel, and they seem to be fashion favorites, keep those, you can still wear them this season and into the summer!

    In the purses world I guess, no news is good news :) I was spot on! Stick to your Chanel, YSL, Hermes. Sell Valentino Before its too late. And if you are looking for a fun small investment in a Dot Com - Fendi, might not be a bad idea at all!

    Best secrets of all times - Tips and advise Revealed

    Best secrets of all times - Tips and advise Revealed

    Know your shape


    Before you run to buy the latest fashion trend, know if it fits your body type. If not - wait till the next one. Don't be a fashion victim. Fashion always changes anyways, stay you!

     



    Body Type Lorena's WORTH

     


    Clean up
    You haven't used it in the past 2 seasons? It's not a classic? Sell it, consign it. donate it! Buy new stuff, you will get more use on that money!


    Consign Lorena's WORTH

     



    One body part at a time
    Looking sexy does not mean show it all off, know what to bare and what not. The best advise is choose only one bare body part at a time. Wearing a low cleavage? keep the mini skirt at home.

    They are the accessory - so use them brightly!
    Not even looking at your closet, I am pretty sure it's a good mix of neutrals, a full range of blacks, grays, whites and may be one red. There is nothing wrong about that... This only calls for a color pop on all your accessories, shoes, bags and accessories should be bright and colorful!

    Lorena's WORTH Accessories




    Day bag
    Chose one that will just hold your essentials, and chose them wisely. Don't buy the oversized purse that will get so stuffed up that you won't be able to find a thing in there!

    Purse Handbag Lorena's WORTH


    Mingle Free
    Going to a cocktail party? Drinks with friends? Dancing? What are you going to do with that clutch that you have to hold all night? Right... Evening is hands free time, choose a clutch with a chain, cross body or strap!

    Scarf
    Always have at least one classic scarf in your wardrobe, they never go out of style. They truly transform an outfit! Even a simple T shirt won't look so boring anymore!



    SJP Scarf Lorena's WORTH


    Bra
    That T Shirt could never look as good without the right bra. Go to a specialist, they will help you chose so you can show off the T shirt... Yes, only the T Shirt.

    White button down
    You need to own at least 2 of those. A fitted one and a lose one. They are the best staple piece.

     

    Lorena Shiff Lorena's WORTH

     


    When in doubt turn nude
    The nude shoes are the safest bet when you do not know what color to chose. Buy one that matches your skin tone, not your purse. They will go with any bright colored Purse!



    Nude Shoes Lorena's WORTH

     




    Be you!
    You know yourself best! Always go with your gut and stay true to you! Your best accessory is your self confidence! Wear it always with a smile!
