Romantic: Lace and Satin

romaticlace

The flowers are blooming and the birds are chirping. It’s definitely almost Spring here in the tropics. And we all know what that means, love, love is definitely in the air. It’s a time of renewing promises, renewing goals, and renewing commitments. Nature is doing this and so are people.

I’ve always adored the look of these yellow flowers sprinkled on the ground in Febraury in Hawaii. They always seems to put a smile on my face, it reminds me that nature is getting the air ready for love.

While Febraury marks the last month of winter and is often a time to celebrate love, one of my favorite combinations for a dinner night out with the love of my life is satin and lace. This Spring’s collections  celebrate sheer fabrics and layers with lace and chiffon.

In this outfit, I played with satin and lace layers for a romantic date night outfit using the concept of undergarments as outerwear. Here, I layered a satin camisole underneath this lace shell and paired it with a lacey A-line skirt. This look can be achieve by layering undergarments underneath or over tops.

Hey Everyone,

This past week was a busy time for work as well as for the blog. I’m excited to share with you the news that Nordstrom Rack has opened up their new store in the heart of Waikiki’s shopping district.  I’ve been a Nordstrom Rack shopper for years especially after college when they first opened their Ward store. It is the one place I go to for my favorite designer brands for discounted prices.

Tuesday last week, I attended the private shopping event and got a chance to check out the store at the Waikiki Trade Center. In true Nordstrom Rack style, there was a great selection  clothing, shoes, beauty products, accessories, and housewares.

I went to check out the handbags and the designer shoe sections for wishlist items. I was excited to find a Love Crossbody by Rebecca Minkoff that I have been eyeing for a couple of years now and a pom pom charm that’s on trend at the moment. You’ll be seeing these on blog soon.

I also tried on several sunnies and designer watches that caught my eye.

Ultimately, I spent the night helping my husband select a few items to add to his wardrobe.

XOXO,

Hello Everyone,

Another year older and another year wiser. I’ve learn so much about life and fashion in the past year and I hope that I can continue to share this journey with you.

This is the third installment of the collaboration with Vivid Foto.  This particular set is my favorite, it reminds me of old Hollywood Glamour and that true style, never goes out of style, we just update it often.

The Modern Vintage: Pleats and Lace

 

Michelle_A_Glamour-10

Hello All,

I’ve been meaning to do a collaboration with Melissa and Balbino from Vivid Fotos and last February I got that chance. It was a great day to get my make up done and take some pictures in and around their studio in Downtown Honolulu. I could not pass up this opportunity to work with these amazing photographers on a fashion photo shoot. I first met them a year and a half ago when my husband and I did our engagement photoshoot. They did such an amazing job that when a fashion opportunity came up, I was super excited to work with them. I love their photo perspective and vision.

Classics never go out of style. This dress is reminiscent of  a 1920’s flapper dress with a modern twist. I like that it takes the structured look of pleats and juxtaposes them with in laid lace.  I felt that it needed a come back on the blog, given that it’s my dress for special events. I kept the look simple and paired it with a pair of sparkly shoes.
