The Beauty of Colors

           This Spring is all about Breaking the Rules when it comes to Fashion. The 70's Fashion is back this Summer with Flares,Bell bottom Pants, 70's Style Floppy Hats,Turbans,Maxi dresses, over sized tops,creating statements when it comes to your Shoes and Bright Solid colors.The Color blocking Trend which is not new but its back with beautiful hues this summer. I wanted to give the color blocking trend a try so I came with a different approach. I Purchased a two toned color, Pink and Orange dress from H&M for about $35.00. I wore Bright Blue Feather Earrings for about $5.00 from Strawberry which will be my Best friend this Spring. I bought Two Pink and blue awesome Purses from H&M for about $5.00 each. They are nice for a Picnic or a day out to the beach. I wore a Pair of  multi colored Shoes that went wonderful with the outfit. The colors were more bolder than I thought which gave it a unique look.keep in mind it is all about expressing yourself when it comes to your outfits. 
        Me and My good friend Steven Onoja wanted to look similar but simple. Steven's Hat is from TopMan, his shirt and blazer was thrifted. His shoes are from a Boutique in soho for about $100.00. His bag is from zara for about $60.00. His accessories are from the flea market all under $5.00. Steven has awesome style and I see him as the male version of me when it comes to style. You will see more of steven on my blog.






PEACE.LOVE AND HAPPINESS 
Many women wrongly believe they can’t wear Red lipstick. The secret to
 choosing the right color is picking one or two shades darker than your 
natural lip color.If you’re cool with pinkish or reddish undertones than it
 wouldn’t hurt to pick a red lipstick. 
Necklace & Earrings from: Strawberry

Pick a Nail Polish color that doesn’t match your complexion.
A Bold, Bright Solid Color dress
Everyone needs that cute Purse/Bag for the Spring. I purchased this from H&M for about $5.00. It is awesome for the beach, A nice picnic with HIM or a Girl’s Night Out!
Pick a shoe that speaks for it’s self and the rest will do the talking



Take a Glimpse of Steven.

Get Inspired by: Danielle Harth


Danielle Harth a 20 year old born and raised outside of Chicago, Illionios. Graduated from Glenbard East High School. She's Currently attending the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana, majoring in Psychology. She like's summer weather, painting, designing, learning new trades. She's a risk taker and is all about positivity.Danielle is a Student and Free Lance Artist (paintings, earrings, shoes, fascinator, hair pieces, wigs). What Inspires Danielle? Her mother. Her mother inspires her to be a go-getter and fear nothing. her artistic inspirations include Sandra Knuyt, Salvador Dali, Philip Treacy, Daphne Guinness, Cher, Beyonce, Kanye West, and Diana Ross

I asked her  what does she think about when she creates her artwork she replied " When I’m creating art I’m in a trance, it’s like a state that’s between being awake and asleep. It’s hard to say what I’m thinking about because I don’t know. God has blessed me with a gift and I just feel him moving through my hands."
Danielle's advice to individuals that are trying to create art is to Create what makes you feel good, remain humble, and don’t reveal your work to anyone until it’s completely finished. I also asked her what do she want people to gain from her work and she said, "I want people to say, “Dang, that is a pretty picture! How much do you want for it?” Haha. Also, I would like to inspire others to be creative and embrace their inner child."
