Friends, Fun & Fashion: SWAP &SHOP

I had a wonderful time at my first Swap & Shop event. I was impressed that everyone participated and brought a variety of things to swap. 
Having a variety of fashionistas' with different styles and sizes, allowing everyone to find something special  to incorporate into their wardrobes. It was refreshing to hear and see everyone share their Style Stories of how the essence of their style has matured, and how they wish to show more fun and fearlessness in their clothes. All the ladies encouraged one another to try on items that were out of their comfort zone but were along the thread of how they wish to dress. it was a fun and fashionable event with a great bunch of Fashionistas!

Plum &Tangerine

Flexible Work Style: For Thursday, I mixed two colors that are always complimentary to my skin tone. Any shade of violet & orange, tend to bring out the undertone of my skin. Its a plus if you know your hues and what color expresses your tone. Try experimenting with different colors to find out what works for you...
Top: Target (plum colored swearter) Top: Express (via Marshalls) Pants: Limited

This Week’s Blog Theme : Dimensions to the Having a Flexible work Style

There are many dimensions to what you may wear to work. If you work in a space where a creative attired isn’t the energy of the environment, at times it may feel like you have to sacrifice your sense of style to expressive conservativeness. But I say, test yourself by fusing your expressive side with your business ways. To insert your style into a more conservative wardrobe, it's best to do so subtly. You can start with your accessories; then occasionally switch it up to incorporate more noticeable pieces. Getting dressed for work shouldn’t be a hassle. Though it’s easier said than done, it better to work with the items you have. Mix and match what works for you! This week, I look forward to sharing my flexible work Style with you all :-) Feel free to share what do you wear to work?
