Workday Style

Dressing for work is a reality that has to be dealt with. Some of us have the great fortune of working at a place where the dress code is relaxed. A place where one could throw on some jeans, a vintage t-shirt, and some sneakers in the morning and be ready for work. But the majority of us have to adhere to the fashion rules of the companies we work for.

Dressing for a Music Festival

Warm weather and sunshine are making their way back into our lives and that means music festival season is upon us. With the high demand for live music and the benefits of performing in vast outdoor venues, just about any musician you can think of is bound to be on a festival roster. Pop music and style have always intersected in one way or another, and music festivals are no exception. Festivals have become true events showcasing not only music, but fashion as well.

Christian Louboutin, Shoe Rebel

Who would have known that the sole of a shoe, in a hue of blazing red, would become a fashion phenomenon and a stylish symbol of fierceness and fun? In every red sole under the exquisitely crafted shoes of French designer Christian Louboutin, what you are seeing is the spirit that ignited Louboutin’s creativity in the first place – a spirit of uniqueness, daring, and rebellion.

Christian Louboutin was born in Paris on January 7, 1963. The son of a cabinet carpenter father and a homemaker mother, Christian felt out of place amongst his parents and three sisters. Christian thought that his darker complexion gave him a much more exotic look than his other family members, who he has described as being “very French”.

The Beauty of Vintage Hair

In fashion, there has always been a tendency to look back at decades past for trends that set the style standards. From the sleek and sharp lines of the mod 1960s to the broad and bold shoulders of the 1980s, fashion has taken cues from the past to innovate the present. Hairstyles of the past have also made their way into present day culture. Those who are entrenched in the present trends will tell you that straight and sleek is the way for your hair to go. But two pop culture trendsetters gladly challenge this.
