What do you get when you combine Anthropologie and Malaysia’s rising songstress together?

An awesome in-store show of course! Yuna will be performing in Seattle as part of Anthropologie’s Push Play Project this coming Friday. Wish we could be in Seattle right now to soak in the fun! Plus, Yuna’s impeccable fashion sense is really to envy for. Share with us some nice shots if you were lucky enough to catch the show!

N got a sweet break to have met and snapped a picture with her when she was in the city last year. She still looked great even after having had to perform earlier that day at Central Park. We think casual chic suits her personality, don’t you agree?

An article by Racked.com has triggers my interest in blogging about it. Trust us, we hardly post anything that is not original but this article by Tiffany Yannetta was so good that we find it inspirational and we would love for our readers to read about it.

Welcome to the latest edition of Working It, where Racked takes street style to the next level—the office. The litmus test of the true style-savvy is how she (or he) rocks a look on any old day to work. Forget the pedestrian khakis and button downs—these fashionable professionals take the office dress code to a whole other dimension. Quick, somebody call HR!

This week, we take you to the London headquarters of The Outnet, one of our favorite shopping sites that sells past-season goods and exclusive products from over 200 designers. Since their warehouse contains merchandise from Stella McCartney, Balmain, Alexander McQueen, Marni, and more, the team behind the site has endless inspiration to choose from for their daily work outfits.

Eve Thomas, Senior Fashion Editor: I like to mix and match luxe pieces with more casual items. I might pair a statement skirt with a classic tee, or a cocktail dress with a leather jacket. I’m also a big fan of color and print and tend to wear one bold piece with more neutrals items.

Style advice: Invest in the very best wardrobe basics you can afford. These will see you through for years to come. Every girl should own the following: a trench coat, a pencil skirt, a pair of cropped pants, a leather jacket, and a tailored blazer, plus a selection of T-shirts and cashmere knits in neutral colors. You can then update these every season with a handful of trend items. Be bold with your accessories. It’s the easiest way to update an outfit—a statement necklace will instantly transform a basic tee, and a pair of color-pop shoes will add interest to a LBD.

Style advice: Don’t hide yourself away in black because it’s safe or you have been told it is “slimming”. Color and print can add an edge to your style and give you a confidence you didn’t know you had. It’s always worth investing in accessories: A statement bag, pair of shoes or necklace will last you seasons. Do your research; see what is on offer, and invest wisely.

Mo White, Creative Director: My style is minimal, directional, and stylish, often with a ’60s or ’80s signature. I have a capsule wardrobe of great pieces that I love and can work with anything. I like to add a tough element to my look, whether that be a tailored jacket with a quirky edge (Wang does some really great ones), a pair of leather trousers or doing something as simple as turning up the collar on my jacket. I know my body shape very well and I dress to enhance my height and shape.

Style advice: Top tip? Take t-shirts to the dry cleaners before their first wear and the heat will bond the jersey so the fabric will wear better!

Style advice: Always wear amazing heels, but bring a pair of flats in your bag. Don’t be afraid to express your personality in clothes! And a good haircut is your best accessory.

Ok.

So take me for example, Aliaa! Lazy to dress up on a given day (anyday will be my casual friday) but I dress messy with dressy (duh!), no matter what you do girls, skinny jeans with v-neck thirts. You can always mix it with a lovely bangles and casually stroll with your hobo bag! a little pop of color will go a long way! You don’t have to know fashion to be fashionably, all you need is some key pieces that you can mix it with anything.

Spring 2012 Colors

Spring is the season of transition from winter to summer! Just as the seasons transition, we too make transitions and renewals ourselves! Typically seen during this period, are a lot of flowers and floral prints as well as bright colors. Concerning fashion, free flowing loose fitting illustrations of orange, purple, green and yellow are embraced for the year of 2012. Due to the pre-winter season, you will see neutral and organic colors occasionally intertwined. All of which flow right into Interior Design!

When deciding how to change the decor in your home and revamp the look and feel for spring, I recommend beginning with a floral arrangement or photograph of your favorite flowers for inspiration. Spring is currently revolving around these amazing pieces of nature and they are a great way to develop a color scheme! After all, who knows better about colors than the originators…

One thing we sure love about Spring is the Film Festivals and Metropolitan College of New York is no exception. Launched just two years ago, MCNY short film festivals has become to me the best platform for new filmmakers out there. Simply the only school in New York City that started with a short film festivals, MCNY is truly a students event that transcendent the creativity of short films.The festival offers opportunity for short film makers to get their film out there.

Pssst, they’re still looking for submission for the short film festival. Films should not be longer than 20 minutes or larger than 500 MB to be eligible for submission. What are you waiting for? take out that camera and shoot away and don’t forget to read the terms and conditions http://www.mcny.edu/filmfestival/

Spread the word.

Yesterday, Madison Avenue Spy highlighted an intriguing (if questionable) cobbler practice of adding red soles to shoes that don’t happen to be Christian Louboutins — or in need of repair for that matter — by customer request.

Given the shoe label’s ongoing run of design infringement-based lawsuits (most recently waged against red-bottomed styles by YSL and Brazil-based Carmen Steffens), we figured it would be particularly difficult to track the service down elsewhere. Not so.

HOW IT WORKS:
Lexington Avenue-based Empire Shoe Repair’s crew was happy to walk us through the hour-long, $34 process — from shaving down city-worn (or new) soles to adding traction to footbeds to prevent sidewalk slips. (In the case of genuine Louboutins, only the front half of the shoe is altered and the label logo is kept intact; for others, the only way to tell the difference is to take a close look at the Louboutin imprint-less inner arch.) And yes: While the practice is meant for Louboutin owners intending to maintain their soles, it’s clear that non-owners are cashing in on the look — and that local cobblers are cashing in on offering the service.

WHERE TO GET IT DONE:
A handful of other city sources offer the service, too. Looking for a Loub job of your own? Try one of these shops:

$34 at Empire Shoe Repair, 911 Lexington Avenue; 212-744-1257
$17 at Erik Shoe Repair, 353 Grand Street; 212-673-0507
$25 at Cobbler Express, 60 Wall Street; 212-809-9814
$18-$24 at Star Shoe Repair at 60 Bleecker Street; 212-505-9255
$34.75 at Jim’s Shoe Repair, 50 East 59th Street; 212-355-8259

Hmm, honest opinion from us. Just don’t get anything fake 🙂
