MIRRORED AVIATOR SUNGLASSES BY @AQUASWISS (AQS)
Even though these mirrored aviator (or flash lenses) sunglasses have been around for decades, this timeless accessory has officially appeared back on the fashion scene as one of the must-haves for 2015. From pilots that fly the friendly skies to police officers with the thick haired ‘staches, these specs can be seen just about anywhere on just about anyone. I, myself have one. To be honest, I got bored with them because they were plain. I got them back in 2010 at American Eagle for $15 and wore them about... yeah, let's just say they're still in their case in my car. I think at the time I was just looking for something gold or champagne colored to accentuated my skin tone. I will not lie, I definitely will be wearing them again, hence the reason they're still in my car, lol. However, what makes these specs better and eye catching is its mirror appearance.


The perfect thing about these glasses is that you can dress them up and dress the down. Just last week, I saw a woman walking out of church in a black blazer and skirt with fuchsia and pink lens. Looking back, I wish I would have taken a candid image of her. In fact, I'd love to rem/x it myself within the next couple of months. With an accessory like this, the the more vivid the color and opaque the lenses are, the better. AquaSweiss has some great colors that I am dying to get my hands on, retailing at $295. Ray-ban, who also has some of the prettiest colors, range around $150-200. In fashion, style doesn't always have to be expensive. You can still wear these great designers at great prices without hurting your pockets.

So there's a talk show that comes on during the day. I'm not sure how long the show's been around, but it is quite new to me. The five hostesses on the show are established within the game, but with all of them put together they seem to bring something new to daytime television. The show is... The Real. All of these women, in their own right, have their own style and personality. However there's one woman on the panel that has something different about her. From the old girl groups, 3LW and The Cheetah Girls, Ms. Adrienne Bailon is my FASH-ICON.

I decided to pick one image that stood out that represents her style and personality. I am so in love with her fashion sense that I've decided to recreate this look for my viewers. This style is quite easy to. Just remember, when it comes to the outfit, showing just a touch of skin turns it from safe to sexy.

In my REM/X, I decided to switch the patterns from the high waisted skirt to the shoes. The skirt chosen is a solid natural (white) color with no pattern or design (comparing to Adrienne's skirt). While Adrienne has solid black scrappy booties, I chose a shoe that has a similar design (or handbag). Just remember, basic colors with one signature piece. Pair this look with gold bangles (and/or watch), stud/hoop earrings, and a wide brim fedora hat. When it comes to accessories, less is best. Think BARE. It's more about drawing attention to the skin and your silhouette. You don't want to take the focus off that onto loads of accessories. This can turn the look from less to TOO MUCH quickly.

NEW DIRECTION: VM + YOUTUBE + INSTAGRAM

WORKING ON WINDOWS AT 12 MIDNIGHT. IT CERTAINLY WAS A BLUR.

I always seem to have the urge to update when it's early in the morning as if I don't have a bedtime. Strangely enough, this is when I get the most inspiration to create something new... and then I fall asleep while doing it. It never fails, lol. Nonetheless, I'm up now and I have an announcement to make and it shouldn't take long. I've been neglecting my blog for too long due to new adventures, new beginnings and little time. I've decided that the time for branding myself is now. I believe I have my older sister to thank for this, but I've came to the realization that this brand is worth moving forward... and I'm deciding to do so on Youtube. I will be updating about my journey as a Visual Merchandiser by showing what I do and my life during my fun and challenging career.

Besides YouTube, I've already stared debuting some of my work on social media. I'm not really a big fan of Facebook, but you will see me on twitter and instagram. To find me on Instagram, search for VMXNW or by using the hashtag #vmxnw.
