Hot men of sports

So, since I couldn’t think of a better title for this entry, I titled it as such.  My love of sports and fashion do not mesh that often, but when they do, I jump at the opportunity.  I have noticed over the years the even though men look amazing in a sports uniform, sometimes they look just as amazing in a 3-piece suit.  So let’s take a look at some examples shall we?

Mark Sanchez of the New York Jets…

 

Roger Federer…Tennis…

AndyRoddick…Tennis…

Chase Utley…Philadelphia Phillies (please ignore his wife)

Mike Richards, Joffrey Lupul, Jeff Carter…Philadelphia Flyers (not exactly suits but are you complaining?)

You may recognize this stunning beauty from the pages of the Victoria’s Secret Catalog.  Candice Swanepoel was born on October 20, 1988, which makes her a little over a year older than I am, and she has already accomplished so much.  For example, she is signed with the world’s most prestigious modeling agency in the world, IMG Models and she has walked the runway in the ever popular annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show with some of the world’s most famous models like Adriana Lima, and Alessandra Ambrosio.

She has done covers for Vogue Greece, Elle Germany and advertisements for Nike, Diesel, and Guess?.

On August 12, 2010 Swanepoel officially opened the first Victoria’s Secret retail store in Canada.

And to break many hearts around the world, Candice has been dating model Hermann Nicoli since 2006.

To check out more pictures of Candice, take a look at her IMG Models page.

Fashion across the Universe: Prague

The people of Prague are extremely well dressed.  Not to mention that Prague has been rated the most beautiful place in the entire world.  It is not wonder that multiple famous super models such as Karolina Kurkova have come from Prague.  The fashions are very pretty and feminine with touches of sophistication.  This is what I mean:

“I don’t understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little – if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that’s the day she has a date with destiny. And it’s best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.”

– Coco Chanel

Fashion Across the Universe: Berlin

Berlin’s Fashion Week is well under way while this country is diving into Awards season.  Berlin’s fashion is not as different from ours as Mumbai’s is but yet it is just as beautiful.  This fashion show is for Fall/Winter 2011.

Fashion Across the Universe: Mumbai

It is so interesting to see how fashions and trends vary depending on where you are.  I have always been fascinated with the fashions from all around the world and how they all differ from one another.  Fashion is as much about culture as food is.  Mumbai is the fashion capital of the Middle East just like New York is to America.  The colors and textures of these clothes are breathtaking when done right.

Here are some examples of what I am talking about:

Hello 2011!

With my much-needed break from blogging over, I am making a come-back for the year of 2011.  Now that I have no restrictions about what I can write about, be prepared for more of my opinions, world fashions, fashion tips, and fashion do’s and don’t’s.

I would first like to start off by saying that spring is right around the corner so it is getting to be that time to start shopping for new clothes.  I know in the past I told you what was on the runway for spring, but now it’s time for me to tell you what you can go into your mall and buy for spring and look completely adorable.

Instead of me telling you with just words…I will also show you with pictures. Enjoy!

Lace is big big big for spring and this is one of my favorite ways to wear it.  This is a perfect lace shell (of course with a tank underneath, we are ladies after all).

Bold prints are also very in because they stand out without being tacky, which no one wants.  This top is super feminine with the bow on the neckline and the soft colors, but the print is bold enough to make this a statement blouse.

Sparkly touches are super important for spring.  A little metallic accent makes an ordinary outfit glamorous and makes an ordinary day feel special. There are actually 2 ways to do metallic this spring; in clothes, or in accessories.  Both of these photo examples are perfectly acceptable.
