There’s no other closet staple that’s as timeless or as versatile as the white button-down shirt. And who knows best how to make a white dress shirt look good on a woman? I have to say, the answer must be Anne Fontaine.

Falling in love with a brand is just like falling for a person. There must be some connection or click. There are a lot of people asking me to describe my own style. I always refer myself as fun, graceful (of course) and polished.

As you can see from the two looks I am wearing, Anne Fontaine designs are above all others. She is definitely the white dress shirt queen and her designs are so elegant, fun and polished. You see? Anne Fontaine is basically my fashion soul mate. 😉

Of course, you don’t just fall in love with somebody because of their looks (not that looks hurt). Deep down, you fall in love because you admire the person or that person makes you feel good about yourself. Anne Fontaine is certainly a designer who knows about womens bodies and how to make them feel good about themselves. She has the magic touch to make a basic white dress shirt look super sexy, but still elegant.

Just like this black ADONIA skirt I am wearing makes me feel so sexy without showing much skin! Can you believe how beautiful this cream ANOUSHKA blouse is!? There is no need to point out the elegance and femininity in this top, as it is her signature style. The puffy sleeves are so right now and add so much fun.

Let’s talk about how versatility. This BORIS collar is the perfect example to show how thoughtful Anne Fontaine is. You can wear it with a white dress shirt, a black one like I did, or an off the shoulder top…. There are endless options to use this collar and make every look unique and fun!

Anne really knows how to make her pieces looking good on any woman. For example, for any girl who has a D or D+ chest, button down shirts often are not an option because it pulls open from the front all the time. All the shirts by Anne Fontaine have more buttons on the chest area to ensure everything is in its rightful place.

When I think about buying a luxury piece, often I give up at the last minute because I hate the thought of having to dry clean every time I wear it. It is just too much time and effort for me. All of Anne Fontaine clothes can be machine washed. Score!

Now you get my point. I LOVE Anne Fontaine’s designs. I also admire her as a human being. I always wanted to be a fashion designer and this year I finally started to give it a try. 😉 On that note, it’s needless to say how much I admire her talents and hard work. Above everything, the thing that really speaks to me is her heart. In addition to her own life style brand (her white dress shirts and everything that goes with them), Anne Fontaine also runs a foundation to preserve the Mata Atlântica and save the Brazilian Atlantic Rainforest.

How does she do that? She designed some products to raise awareness and uses the money from these items to plant more trees. The EcoBag for example, which was designed by Anne Fontaine, is a recyclable bag made partially from recycled plastic bottles. It contributes to funding the Foundation’s reforestation projects. By purchasing an EcoBag for $20, you can help plant 5 trees and at the same time decrease the use of plastic bags. This month, the 22nd is Earth Day. These bags would make the perfect heart felt gift for that day!

Life After Loss – The First Time Traveling Alone

Life After Loss – The First Time Traveling Alone

My husband was the person who took care of everything when we traveled. My only job was to show up and be pretty. He used to encourage me to pack many outfits that could be used later for my blog. In his backpack, there would be snacks, drinks, makeup touchup essentials, a jacket, and a pair of flat shoes for me since he knew at some point I would have enough of the heals and I’m always cold. 😉

This trip was a totally different story. The night before I left, I realized my LV or Chanel small cross body bags were not that practical. I went out bought myself my very first backpack. Since now it is me who has to carry everything, I packed really light and gave up on heels and fancy dresses.

For me, the first goal of this trip was not losing my phone or wallet. The second was to not get sick or hurt and the last one was to enjoy myself. 😉 I know, my standards are pretty low. I was quite nervous about this trip since I was living in a bubble the last 10 years as a princess. Now, I feel like I am lacking a lot of life skills. I was crying the night before and really wished he was there with me for the trip.

My first flight from Detroit to LA was late and sat on the runway for 45 minutes. I was told my second flight would wait for me. I ran from one terminal to another and when I finally got to the gate, it was closed. I was put on standby for 4 hours, where I literally stood by the flight podium for two hours, but still didn’t get on the flight. Later, I had to fly to Vegas and then finally to Honolulu. My 12 hour flight turned into a 40 hour nightmare. But, on day 2 when I finally stepped into my hotel room, I opened the window and saw the ocean view and instantly felt everything was worth it. 😉

But it seemed like the bad luck was still with me on day 3. I booked the active volcano tour to the Big Island. I had to get up at 4am to catch my flight. I went downstairs to get myself a cup of coffee. I sat on the shuttle bus and took a sip, my belly instantly felt burning. When I looked down, my coffee had spilled and already spread all over my chest. GREAT! I never knew that I need to double check whether the cap was closed completely. It was always my husband who handed me drinks and he would make sure everything was ok. This was my once in a lifetime opportunity to take some great photos when I hop on my helicopter to see the volcanos and lava, and now my whole front was covered with coffee! I didn’t swear or get upset, I just told myself I needed to buy a t-shirt before I get into my chopper. Long story short, after many attempts, I finally got myself a tee and was ready to go up… then I was told the helicopter tour had to be cancelled due to the weather. What?!

I went hiking in Volcano National Park with my tour group. I couldn’t help but search for my man. Although there was nothing that looked familiar other than the sky, I suddenly missed his warm and thick hands. He always held my hand wherever we went. We hiked together a few times and we always had so much to talk and laugh about. But now, it was just so quiet. At end of the day, we finally saw lava and a place where the lava went into the ocean. Standing on the cliff alone, facing the ocean I suddenly bursted into tears. “We made it honey” was all I could say in my head at that moment. On the way back to the airport, I sat alone and cried the whole way. Suddenly familiar music started to play, it was one of our favorite songs called ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ by Israel Kamakawiwo’Ole. I instantly smiled even with tears still in my eyes. I know it was my husband trying to comfort me.

After the first 3 tough days, I decided I had enough and it was time for me to enjoy myself. I am on vacation, not in a prison, right? So I did my homework and found some great restaurants and more activities to do. I finally hopped on a chopper to see the whole island of Oahu. Although it was not the lava view I initially planned on, the experience was amazing. I also had my first snorkeling experience. After that, my real vacation started. I was surprised that I was still very happy eating dinner at a restaurant by myself. I initiated a lot of conversations with strangers and I was so grateful because I met so many great people on this trip.

Now I am home safe with my phone and wallet. 😉 The most important outcome from this trip is I feel more confident. It was kind of like a test for myself. When I am at home, I’m comfortable and I don’t have a lot of difficult situations come up, but this trip showed me how things could go wrong. Lucky, I was able to manage everything and still enjoyed my time. Now, to plan my summer trip to Paris!;)
