fashion blogger for fall trends

Chloe + Isabel

In addition to writing about fashion, another of my great passions is reading and writing about entrepreneurship. Fortunately this blog has given me the opportunity to meet a lot of talented people. One of them is Anna.

A couple of months ago, I had the chance to meet (through Internet) this amazing entrepreneur, stylish woman, and mom (how can she do it all!!), Anna Lisa Ciaccio. She introduced me to the lifestyle jewelry brand Chloe + Isabel.

Inspired by a concept they call “The Friendship Philosophy”, Chloe + Isabel are the names that represent two personalities:

Chloe, the fearless fashionista, always in search of the season’s hottest trends. And Isabel, the one that appreciates, above all, timeless, beautifully-crafted pieces. 

Each piece is hand-designed in their NYC studio and for those with sensitive skin, all of their jewelry is hypoallergenic, nickel-free and lead safe. And believe it or not their prices start at $24 USD (check it out here).

For me Chloe + Isabel was the perfect description of what I look for in jewelry: unique, timeless and affordable.

After long emails with Anna and lots of fun choosing my favorite pieces (I made a list of like, 20 items… it was so hard to decide which one to wear for my post because I wanted them all)  today I share with you what I chose: the Scarab Statement necklace and bracelet.

Wear the trend: Checkers

Hello,

I guess you’ve been in the same situation as me… Trying to wear a fashion trend but don’t know how. Sometimes the trending clothing piece, color or accessory is something you will normally don’t wear or probably don’t feel comfortable in, since it’ll be the first time you wear it. In this case what I do is to wear other items that happens to have the trend but in a small/indirect way. With time I’ll start wearing it in its original way. For example, checkers. I love the way this pattern looks in dresses, pants and shoes but the first time I wore this trend was on bags. Here’s an example of how you can wear the trend in a safe but still in a fashion way. These are two Fendi bags, they’re adorable and a great way to start applying the checkers trend. Later try wearing the trend on shoes even on dresses and pants, they look amazing! Just remember to play safe accessories when wearing the whole look.

How will you wear this trend?

Xx,
Alejandra García

Hola,

Me imagino que alguna vez has estado en la misma situación que yo, quieres usar una nueva tendencia de moda pero no sabes cómo. De alguna manera el color, accesorio o prenda que esta de tendencia no es algo que usarías normalmente o bien es algo que no te sientes agusto ya que sería la primera vez que lo usas. Lo que yo hago en estas ocasiones es usar piezas que de alguna manera incluyen la tendencia pero ‘indirectamente’ o en una versión pequeña. Con el tiempo empiezo a usar las prendas o colores o lo que este de moda de la manera en que debería de ser. Por ejemplo, los checkers. Me encanta como se ve esta tendencia en los vestidos, zapatos y bolsas de hecho la primera vez que empece a usar esta tendencia fue con una bolsa. Aquí te presento una manera de usar esta tendencia de forma segura pero al mismo tiempo te verás muy a la moda. Estas dos bolsas Fendi las cuales me encantan y estan increibles aplican la tendencia de los checkers. Con el tiempo atrévete a usar esta tendencia en zapatos, vestidos e incluso pantalones, se ven padrísimos. Sólo recuerda llevar accesorios simples ya que los checkers por sí mismos llaman mucho la atención.

¿Cómo usarías tu esta tendencia?

xx,
Alejandra García
