We’d all like to make our lives a little easier and functional, spending less yet gaining a little more. Whether you’re an “on the go” girl who’s looking for transitional clothing to go from morning to evening, a traveler who needs to pack light, or you are just looking to simplify your wardrobe, take a look at our “Functional Fashion” picks that are a must have for this season.



We all have busy lives to lead and who wants to think about packing a bunch of clothes for the entire day? Why not grab a great versatile piece that can carry you from morning to evening? Go with a chic black jumpsuit, demure enough for the office, yet spiced up in the evening with a quick change of shoes and a cozy feather or sequined jacket.



Make like Kendall Jenner and have your jumpsuit work with you in your favorite comfy boat shoes or sneakers to keep you moving all day long. Your streamlined outfit might not come fashioned with enough pockets to hold all your necessities throughout all your activities.



Let your comfy shoes take you places this Season. While we love a good heel now and again, there’s no problem with taking a “lower” road this year. When you are on the go, the last thing you want is for your feet to give out mid-day. We are loving the “ballerina” flat for Fall. Comfy and chic, this shoe can pair easily with your favorite skinnies, leggings, or midi skirts throughout the Season.


AND bonus points: we love these “foldable” flats that can slip easily into your purse for a quick change throughout the day. Slip off your work heels and pull out your flats when you need to dash around town for a few errands or activities with the kids feeling fab and fashionable this Season.


And you MUST include the ankle boot into your Autumn wardrobe. Warm, comfy, and stylish, the ankle boot is perfect to pair with everything from your favorite cropped jeans, to leggings, to even a maxi dress or skirt.


OMG! Ugg boots are still in style for Fall? Of course they are. These are the perfect comfy functional shoe to fit into your daily routine. Able to pair with anything, these boots will keep you warm and stylish all Season long.


Celebs from Sarah Jessica Parker, to Ashley Greene, to Kendall Jenner have been spotted sporting the trend. So what’s keeping you from pulling out your comfy Uggs? OR go ahead and buy some new ones for the current Season.

Jai Collection

Clothing is having an era of re-birth with the reversible fashion trend. The simplest way to switch your outfit in an instant is with “reversible clothing,”an item that can be turned inside out to completely change the look, feel, and color. We are crushing on Jia Collection’s branding style. Now you can have several different styling options with just one simple garment.

Jai Collection

With their wide variety of dresses, knits, and jackets, you can go from morning at work to lunch with the girls to date night in the evening wearing a completely different look, but the same item all day long.


We also like Helene Clarkson’s clean yet flattering line suitable to take you all over the world with just a few key pieces tucked into your carry-on. From business to pleasure, you’ll only have to pack a few items with her reversible skirts, blouses, and jackets.


Don’t just stop at your daytime wardrobe. Why not try reversible active wear for your daily workout routine. No need to spend a fortune on sports attire- make your fitness fashion go double duty by investing in reversible sports bras, leggings, or jackets.

A comfy pair of leggings can work for you day or night, paired with a blazer for work, a Tee for daytime, your reversible crop for workouts, and a sequined top for nighttime activities.

Check out our favorite legging options here:
“Pascalla” Black Ultra Suede Leggings
“Jepson” Ponte Stretch Leggings
“Taylor” Blue Print Jersey Leggings

While you are on the go, consider clever travel pieces which include built in pockets that allow you to stay moving without the need of a purse or extra baggage. Check out the Clever Travel Companion fashion line suitable for workouts, travel, and active days. Not only are money belts, fanny packs, and vests the opposite of fashionable, but they can also make you more of a target for scams and crime, especially when traveling.



You can also make one item work for you without it being “reversible.” Why not try the convertible clothing option using one item in a variety of different ways. We are loving Elizabeth and James’s convertible trench and the multitude of different ways you can fashion one item of clothing. Traveling has never been easier and your closet will thank you. Wear as trench for cooler days, take off the sleeves for a cute shirt dress effect, then take away the bottom for a chic cropped jacket.




It’s an expression of the need to disconnect from the pre-scheduled daily routines. Inspired by the ones who come alive when the shift ends, living life on an inverted schedule, as kings and queens of the moment, the onesie is a huge trend this Season. From celebs like Beyonce to Kylie Jenner, everyone is getting on board the newest fully functional wardrobe necessity.

Check out the site “Onepiece” who’s setting the mark on this Season’s latest trend. Whether you have a long flight ahead of you, pair with a jacket for errands around town, or snuggle up for a cozy night in, the onesie is a fashion statement that can travel with you wherever you go.


On the go all day, flying through the airport, or just don’t have time to make it home, functional fashion can be your friend this Season. If you choose to slip a sweater over that maxi, switch out your handbag for a wristlet, pair your summer shorts with a cozy pair of tight, or take on the “onesie,” there are limitless ways to stay stylish while cozy this Season.

No matter how you decide to stay “functional,” remember:
Be YOU, Be Fashionable, and ALWAYS Be Feminine.



guess-marciano-spring-summer-2015-clothing02It’s time to show some skin! As we near the end of the Summer Season, it’s the last chance to show that glorious glow and dare to bare. This week’s blog focuses on “slit, slash, or cut out”- which one will YOU dare to try? We’ll show you this Season’s hottest styles and how to shape your body to rock the trends. Take a look below.



For just a hint of skin, let your leg go. The simplest way to show a little skin is with the slit skirt style. For work or play, this style is for you. Whether you prefer runway fashion designer’s Lanvin demure slit or iiJin’s more exposed style, you can easily rock this look. For the office or professional settings, pair your skirt with a chic lace body suit or cami and Bolero jacket. For evenings out, kick up your heels and combine with a dazzling metallic tank or leather lazer cut top. Check out our other favorite slit skirt options below.

Model Cara Delevingne rocks a white slit skirt from morning to evening. You can do the same by pairing with comfy sneakers or flat sandals by day and switching to chic stilettos for evening.

Check out our favorite slit skirt styles here:

Instead of a skirt, you could also go with a chic Summer side slit dress perfect over your swimsuit at the beach or paired with your favorite lace up wedges or strappy heels for nighttime. And when the chillier Season hits, simply layer a cozy leather jacket over your dress for perfect style and warmth.

Prefer slashed rather than slit? We’ve got you covered. You can definitely purchase your own “slashed top” or why not create your own DIY.

The “slashed tee” is easy to pair with your favorite shorts or jeans, or pencil skirt and pumps for a night out on the town.


Don’t just rely on tops. Why not rock a pair of slashed leggings or cropped jeans as well. Keep it classy by pairing with a solid color tank or silk blouse up top.




From Milly, to Issa, to Guy Laroche, this Season’s runway designers filled their collections with the cut-out “cold shoulder” trend. Flattering on every figure, show off your décolletage this Summer and try the look. Pair with your favorite jeans and sandals for daytime glam, and segue into the twilight hours by switching into a strappy pair of heels.

Get on the celebrity trend and try out the cut out dress look. From casual street to red carpet ready, from maxi to mini, anyone can rock this Summer style dress. Less revealing than a crop top, the cut out dress shows a little side or back skin without baring it all. You can easily throw it over your favorite swimsuit for a your last Summer days at the pool or beach and transition into the evening hours with a chic pair of heels or wedges.

Check out our favorite cut out dress choices below:
“Femi” White Lace Cut Out Netted Dress
“June” Green Cut Out Back Halter Maxi Dress

Somewhere between a bikini and one piece is the cut-out swimsuit for Summer. Baring just a little, this is the perfect “tummy”solution while at the pool or beach. Throw your slit skirt over for a Cabana lunch or cover up with a lace Kimono or tunic for a walk down the Boardwalk in style.

“Azaria” White Lace Kimono

If you dare to bare a little, be sure to keep skin glowing and wrinkle free. Make your own DIY soft skin scrub made from natural materials, free of harsh chemicals, and see skin transform in a matter of weeks.

Here’s what you’ll need:
Salt: sloughs off dry skin
Sugar: Great exfoliant, less harsh than salt
Baking Soda: Perfect for oily skin
Coffee Grounds: Eliminates stretch marks and cellulite
Honey: Perfect for sensitive skin; heals raw or irritated skin
Milk: The lactic acid soothes and hydrates
Coconut Oil: Contains Laurin acid to restructure skin and make it soft
Citrus Fruit: Natural exfoliator, eliminates dark spots
Chocolate: Contains antioxidants that protect your skin; reduces lines and wrinkles
Essential Oils: Detoxes and heals
Turmeric: powerful anti-inflammatory effects

RECIPE: 1 Cup Exfoliant + 1/2 Cup Liquid + 2-3 tablespoons fun add ins
Put the exfoliant in a bowl and add liquid slowly, stirring as you go. You want a consistency that you can scoop with your hand so don’t let the texture get too runny. Add optional add ins and mix again. Store in a container with tight fitting lid. You can easily double this recipe if you want to keep it on hand for awhile.Natural-Moisturizers




Now with your cut out style and fresh scrubbed skin, you are ready to ready to rock Summer’s favorite all natural body art style. “Henna”is a plant found and grown in South Asian and North African countries. It has been used since ancient time to color skin, hair, fingernails, leather, and wool. At the simplest, Henna is a paste made out of crushed leaves and twigs of henna plant. The paste can also be made from dried leaves of the plant by mixing it with hot water. When this paste is applied to skin (just like writing from a marker) and left for few hours, it leaves a orange to dark maroon stain in the skin which fades away in 7 to 14 days.

Search your local listings to get it professionally done, or click here for a tutorial on how to make and create your own at home: Henna Art.



So whether you prefer slit, slash, or cut out, dare to show a little skin in the few remaining weeks of Summer. Get out and enjoy the Seasonal sun and let your skin glow before being tucked in for Fall. We’d love to hear from you our readers on which style YOU will dare to try? Comment to us.

And remember no matter which style you choose,
Be YOU, Be Fabulous and always Be Feminine.
