It’s officially FALL! New season, means new trends. Here are some of my faves for this season. I always love hearing from you, let me know what your most excited to seeing and trying out the most.

 

Animal Prints

I’ve always been a fan of this print, and you can never go wrong with it. Try it out

Bold Lips 


Who doesn’t LOVE a bold lip, I sure do!

Power Pant Suits

I love a good pant suit, dress it up, down, go casual. No matter how you style it, you’ll be so on trend and Tre chic!

Minimalistic Make-Up

There’s always time for glam, but less can also be more too. Try the no make up, make up look

Pajama Pants OOTD

I love the whole bedtime fashion concept, comfort + style is always a winner in my book

Medium/Long Hairstyles with a slight Wave

 

Definitely my newest and fave hairstyle look. I’ve always been a fan of long locks, but change is good. Have fun with your hair, change it up, don’t worry it’ll grow back!

All I see is shades of RED 


Who doesn’t LOVE the color red, great color especially for FALL! Add a POP of color like RED and trust me you won’t be disappointed!

SFB Fashion Fridays: Embroidered Vacay Style

Posted on: March 3, 2017

Hey Loves!

Happy TGIF! For those of you who don’t know already, I went on a much needed relaxing Cruise vacation last week. I’m currently posting pictures from our vacation, now up on my Instagram. Don’t forget to follow along on my Snapchat SocFashBeaut17 and Instastories @SocialFashionistBeauty for all the behind the scenes action from all my travels.

I wanted to share with you one of my FAVE outfits during my travels and my current fashion favorite. I’ve always loved the embroidered looked and I’m so happy its on trend and very much in style. The look comes in varying styles from tunics to dresses even handbag detailing, it’s simply stunning.  In my opinion, anyone can sport this look, which is why I LOVE the style. This is one style you can’t go wrong with this season. Definitely a style I think everyone should try. This airy, lightweight, elegant look and intricate detailing is very fashion forward and super chic, perfect choice for the upcoming Spring/Summer seasons.

Oh and yes, for many of you asking, ” What is that black strap around your waist?” Yes, I am in fact wearing a fanny, but not just any fanny. A very fashionable and might I add stylish one of course. Bringing back the fanny pack in style with this Gucci number. One of my favorite classic bags in my collection purchased a few years ago.  I pulled it out of closet to bring and wear during my travels. It’s cute, stylish, fashionable, it can hold a lot of items and it’s GUCCI, you can’t go wrong. The fanny bag may be something of the past, but I’m a big fan of vintage and unique pieces. I mean, hey if you love it and it suits you, then rock it! Here’s a little factoid: it’s the same fanny bag that Sarah Jessica Parker aka Carrie Brandshaw wore in Sex and the City!! If you’re interested in a post about my handbag collection, please comment below. My handbag chronicles may make an appearance on the website VERY SOON! Stay tuned!! Details and links for this look are listed below.

First rule of thumb, comfort first! But if they’re Jimmy Choo’s then all bets are off! 🙂 Well, it may also depend on the shoe and situation. But I do love a good Jimmy Choo heel, I mean am I right!?!!! Who doesn’t love JIMMY CHOO!! <3

My go-to shoe of choice lately have been flats. Whether it be a loafer, slip-on sneaker, brogues you name it I’m wearing it. I couldn’t be happier that flats– particularly loafers and brogues are on trend and back in style. As much as I appreciate and LOVE heels, I always think: “Comfort first,” no matter what the occasion may be. And let me tell you, when I’m wearing any form of flats it’s like walking on clouds, and not to mention my feet are beyond thankful. This menswear inspired footwear comes in varying styles and price points. Very versatile, stylish and suitable for any outfit and occasion. A trend I believe will be around for awhile.  Here are a few of my favorites. Shop these styles by clicking the links below.

Fall Fashion Edition: Fall Outfit from Day to Night

Posted on: September 30, 2016

 

My New York look in full effect. It’s so basic,  yet so chic all at the same time. For the daytime I like to feel comfy, and this is a great casual and chic look.  For a more daytime casual feel, as I’ve done here, wear flats. For the night time, throw on a pair of heels to make this outfit sizzle for a night out on the town. My favorite heels to pair with this outfit: Jimmy Choo Kiki Suede & Fringe Heels. In addition to the heels, change up your lip color to be night time ready. My suggestion would be: a bold red lip or even a deep mave or brown lip color. My favorite Fall shade lipsticks are: Bobbi Brown’s lipstick in the Shade Cocoa and Tom Ford’ Lip Color Matte in shade Ruby Rush What I love about wearing all black, it’s a look that’s so effortless and stylish. An outfit so basic, you just need to accessorize it to take it to the next level. I’m a huge fan of accessories! With the right accessories, you can make your outfit POP! If you’re looking to take your accessories to the next level, and you’re looking for unique, stylish and chic jewelry, head on over to my boutique: www.chloeandisabel.com/boutique/emilydesouza.

FASHION: Secret’s Out: I’m a Designer Handbag LOVER! Move over TOTE, here comes the MINI!

Posted on: December 11, 2015

I guess it comes to no secret or surprise, especially for those who know me and have met me.  But, yes,  I’m a HUGE designer handbag LOVER!! My collection has grown so much over the years, and continues to, that I just keep telling my husband and myself that they’re  great investment statement pieces. (LOL 🙂 )  I love switching my purse up and accessorizing it with an outfit for any event. I also like to keep up with the handbag game, and stay on trend. While also staying true to myself, my style, while also being unique, fun and classic all at the same time.

After work yesterday, I took a stroll down fifth avenue to do a little christmas shopping. I noticed that many women even men carrying smaller accessory pieces versus the popular tote size handbag. Now, I’ve always been a huge fan of big purses–they are great for travel, the office, and they fit just about anything and everything. But I will tell you that as of late, I’ve enjoyed carrying less. And as the saying goes, “Less is More,” and this is so TRUE!! Clutches, Pouches, Crossbodys, you name it are all the rave  in Handbag fashion. And I’m in complete awe and a big fan. Some may call me a little  bag hoarder, but my style is:  classic, fun,  and stylish yet unique. And this is the same for when I make a purchase

My latest purchases that go with the current mini trend: Chanel Caviar Leather  Zipper pouch, Goyard Bois Pouchette Clutch, Givenchy Antigona Clutch, just to name a few. And carrying around a clutch or a pouch even a crossboday is so cute, fun and not to mention so chic!! As of late, I’ve been loving my Givenchy Envelope Clutch, my Chanel Caviar Leather O Case Clutch Pouch,  they’re great for everyday use to glam up a simple outfit. Or even for a night out on the town, and you don’t have to carry a huge purse, just carry your essentials for the day or night. No matter how you wear and style your mini bag you’ll be lookin’ oh so cute, chic, and so on trend!!

During my shopping adventure yesterday, I went to Henri Bendels, and saw so many pretty things, I wanted to purchase EVERYTHING!! But, one thing I did admire the most is their Cosmetic Clutch from there West 57th Collection. They are so stylish,  uber cute and not to mention so versatile. Another plus is that it’s affordable too, priced at $98. You can put all your make-up, travel essentials and more, it fits a ton.  Or, wear it out with a fab outfit as the perfect clutch! Win win for me, when you can find a bag is useful, practical, and stylish!  It comes in an array of colors, I’m sure you’ll LOVE it just as much as I do. With the holidays upon us Bendel’s some great holiday sales going on now:  20% OFF ALL JEWELRY & HAIR ACCESSORIES + EXTRA 20% OFF WHEN YOU SPEND $150! FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS.

Plus, they offer complimentary embroidery monogramming on any leather product they offer. So head on over to their website: http://www.henribendel.com or if you’re in the New York City area stop by the store and shop til you drop!! You won’t want to miss out!! Great gift options!! Enjoy!!

Even though I’m a lover of all types of handbags, any shape or size,  Big or small, but I’m totes lovin’ the mini trend. (Get it LOL)  Take a look at a few of my fave mini bags that have caught my eye and have made it into my collection. So many to choose from, but when you find the ONE, you will be in LOVE!!
