Accordion Detail

Elie Saab


The popular pleat for the season is the Accordion pleat. An accordion pleat resembles the bellows of an accordion or those paper fans we used to make in fourth grade. The material is narrowly folded and faced in the same direction. This pleat is beautiful in the right material.

This style never really goes away, but it pops into mainstream fashion every few years. It's the punk look. This season, it's here with an 80's twist and neon colors. A few years ago, I would've never thought to wear anything even connected to this look. This girl I work with is very 'scene' with her dark clothes with neon rainbows or music t-shirts, dark choppy hair, and lot's of eye make-up. It sounds so sloppy and random, but it fits her so well.

I don't like the guy's side of this look at all. I just can't get with the tight girly jeans and bangs. They look like girls too and are really skinny and sickly.

This look is all about attracting attention to your look and being shocking. It includes animal print, very dark colors and very bright colors, fishnets, lot's of eyeliner, plaid, band t-shirts, hoodies, and muscle shirts.

I'm not into the music, but I have learned to appreciate the look. You will also never find me wearing a neon pink mohaw either.

Kimora: Life in the Fab Lane

Hola Muchachas!

I didn't catch the premiere Sunday night, but I watched it Monday night. I absolutely love this show. I really appreciate the way they capture Kimora being a mother and fashion empire mogul.
My favorite part of the show was the cupcake scene. Her girls are so cute, and I love that Kimora ate the cupcake even though it looked really nasty. It is obvious that her assertiveness and ambition is what keeps Baby Phat and all of her other side projects popular and selling. I hope to have a similar business as her one day and to still be able to juggle all the other aspects of life. I'm addicted and I will be watching.

Product of the Week:

The product of the week is Victoria's Secret Garden Body Sugar Scrubs. I only tried the My Desire scent, which is one of my favorites. I really loved the smell, but I was really annoyed with the scrub part of it. The sugar crystals melt really fast, so you only get to scrub one body part at a time before the sugar dissolves. I bought it for only $2.75 so I'm not really mad, but it smelled really good.

I know I'm late with this one, but anyways... Madras is a popular trend this summer. Especially where I live. It's a print/material for guys and girls. I love this trend and I even have a pair of madras bermudas myself. They're so light, bright, and summery, but I just love that casual, preppy look anyway.

Product of the Week:

Yes. I'm still having skin problems. A dermatologist is out of the question right not because I can't afford it. Right now, I'm just about trying every product on Walmart's shelves until I can find something that will correct my skin. I recently tried Neutrogena's Visibly Even Foaming Cleanser. I was very excited about this product at first because I saw changes right away. I immediately noticed that my skin was brighter and smoother and the scars on my cheeks were fading. Then, after a few weeks, I started breaking out and it was painful. The package doesn't say oil- free, but I didn't see any oil in the ingredients. I'll just keep walking the Wal-mart aisles for now...
