School's Out

These three minutes summon up the blues.
Time's ticking away and we're blowing a fuse.
Last one minute now we're flying, boys in the halls high-fiving,
valley girls on boot and rally they're prattling,
too busy to care, we're rock 'n rolling.
We put our leather on, headphones on, rad sunglasses on.
Music blastin', champagne poppin', Alice Cooper singin'
'cause there'll be no more pencils, no more books, no more teachers' dirty looks.
School's out for summer.
No - school's out forever.

Weddington Way October Style Challenge

I've been invited to take part in a style challenge by Weddington Way. This month, the San Francisco-based online bridal boutique celebrates Bridal Fashion Week by hosting their October Style Challenge. So what's it about exactly? Weddington Way challenged a handful bloggers to style a complete bridesmaid look using one of their lovely bridesmaid dresses: "If you were the Maid of Honor and the bride asked you to help her style the look for her big day, what would you suggest?"

I wanted my bridesmaid look (pictured above) to be neat, but immediately appealing, so I picked an eye-catching color. What I have chosen was a cocktail length dress by Alfred Sung in an elegant shade of red, which they call 'Barcelona', with clean lines and a feminine silhouette. I thought the color Barcelona would look magnificent with gold accents and a loose updo. I opted for neutral eye makeup and nail art to keep the look as tasteful as possible while the classic red lips gave the ensemble a luxe-looking finish.

Discover Swarovski's AW14 Collection

Discover Swarovski's AW14 Collection
Swarovski creations are indubitably a quintessence of refinement, glamour and modernity, and its new collection is a total encapsulation all that is synonymous to the label. Celebrating the heart of the company: lights, facets, and reflections, the collection is called Facets of Light

The crystal label's ravishing Autumn/Winter 2014 collection was unveiled before the eyes of its Qatar-based patrons with an equally splendid night of scrumptious cakes, groovy lounge mixes, and gleaming faces last 23rd September at one of Qatar's upscale gallerias, Lagoona Mall.

Style Notes: To The Baseball Game

Aside from fashion week front rows, fashion sites and online magazines have also been as eager to feature what celebs are wearing to the ball games. I find myself glancing back to the days when watching intercollegiate ball games was a friggin' requirement to pass our PE class. No one prepped me for my first trip; for the record, I wore a pair of high-heeled sandals and brought a massive shoulder bag to the game. I regretted every single minute of it - even so, just like what wise people say: there are no mistakes, just lessons.

Now that postseason MLB games are on on almost every sports cable channel there is, how about let's talk about dressing for the baseball games. If you're going to one, there are a few sartorial tips you should keep in mind for a convenient and an enjoyable baseball game experience.
