VMA's - Best Dressed!

The VMA's were pretty awesome but my favorite part has always been the fashion! Here are my favorite looks from the red carpet!

Crystal Reed.
She can rock the red dress! She has a perfect skin complexion.

 One Direction.
Starting off with Niall, he is wearing a great "school look" jacket which is very fashionable. Then Louis rocking a simple top but his tats make it look cooler! Liam with the flannel around his waist is very stylish for this season. Zayn wearing leather is very "bad boy" yet great on him! Harry sticking to a more formal look but making it look awesome!

Ariana Grande.
Floral dresses are totally cute with plain pointed toe heels! Her hair looks fantastic with the dress as well. Very simple yet chic.

She went very bold and sexy. There may be a lot of skin showing but the feathers and detail is what the main focus is and it looks stunning!

 Danity Kane.
They're back with music and fashion! Starting on the left, very daring and bold but she is working it! The next two are very simple yet chic and adorable! Lastly, a fine jumper with a blazer. All of gals picked great outfits for the Video Music Awards!

 Fifth Harmony.
Starting on the left, that jacket is fab! The yellow colored mixed with leather is very adorable! Next, that dress is cute and great for an award show! The belt fits stunningly with the dress. Onto the next look, I am loving the yellow mixed with leather look. It's very "punkish" yet stylish! The next two outfits are so adorable and girly and have great detail, especially that last dress!

Naya Rivera.
Very simple and elegant. The cut out on the side makes the dress a little sexy as well. Naya really knows how to work a cute black dress! The cutouts are amazing.

 Selena Gomez.
Selena is growing up and getting more edgier with her red carpet dresses but she is keeping it classy! This dress looks beautiful on her and the design is very unique! Blue may not be her best color but this dress looks fabulous on her!

Shailene Woodly.
Keeping it simple and chic, Shailene is wearing a cute crop top with a unique designed skirt. The colors match her skin beautifully. She looks gorgeous!

Ariana Grande.

Who do you think dressed the most stylish?

Friday Favorites!

I have been lagging with my posts but I will try to keep up again! Here are my favorites for this week!

Currently doing: longboarding.
I do this activity once or twice a day. It is seriously addicting and so much fun! It's a great way to just get away and listen to music and feel "free."

Currently eating: Chocolate Glazed Donut Holes.
I have found my new addiction for this week and probably the next few weeks. They are beyond delicious. My favorite donut in general! Yum!

Currently loving: They're Real Mascara by benefit.I received this product for my birthday form Sephora. It is by far the best mascara ever! Review?

Currently adoring: ClothesEncounters.
I love Jenn! She is so fashionable, sweet, and just awesome! Her videos bring a lot of inspiration to my style and you should definitely subscribe to her channel! Her style is one of the best!

Currently wearing: Matte Nail Polish.
I decided to pick up a matte top coat and I do not regret it! I have the NYC brand. I honestly don't think what brand you purchase matters. It all does the same. This finish makes your nails really awesome looking and I definitely recommend trying it out!

Hope - We Came As Romans

Quick Tip Tuesday: Last Minute Outfit

Hey readers! It has been awhile since I have posted and also have done Quick Tip Tuesday. I went to my sister and asked her, "Hey, what fashion problems do you have?" She responded, "I have those times where I have no idea what to wear and what matches last minute." I decided to help everyone out with this one because I know I am not the only one who has this problem.

There are two solutions
  • One, plan your outfit a day before. 
  • Two, keep these two things in mind while planning an outfit last minute; The weather & occasion. Is it hot or cold? Is it raining, snowing, or windy? What type of event are you attending? Do you need to be formal, dressy, laid back, etc.

For example:

Weather - Hot
Occasion - Fast food eating
Wear - Shorts, tee or tank, sandals or sneakers

I typically begin my outfit with choosing my bottoms because I do not have many bottoms as I do tops. This saves time & helps me match easier. 

Next, I pick out a complicated pattern with three colors in it; purple, orange, green, & white.

Orange holds hands with yellow & red. I would choose yellow because red holds hands with purple on the color wheel which would be a little too blended as a look. Green holds hands with blue & yellow. I would not choose a purple top because the majority of the shorts are purple. You can choose purple if you are going for a monochromatic look. 

Blue does hold hands with purple but it's a very light blue.

Now onto patterns. Stripes and floral go together luckily but be careful with pairing patterns together because it can be very difficult. If you do not want to go the complicated & daring route, choose a plain colored top that could be white, green, yellow, orange, or blue. 

Overall, it depends on your outfit, colors, and pattern. 
I hope today's tip helped all of you fashionistas out!
See ya tomorrow!
