fashion gossip weekly KARDASHIAN

Fashion gossip weekly KARDASHIAN!

Welcome to a new month and the new and hopefully improved ColorAndGrace.com! I’m always working hard to make my blog better. A big part of that is being more and more useful to you, my wonderful readers! After all, if it weren’t for you, I would just be talking to myself. And who needs even more people thinking you’re weird? 😉 Anyway, I’m going to try a Daily Special menu.

Monday will have fresh home grown “Fashion 101″ posts. This is where I share my unique expertise to pass along color and fashion wit and wisdom. Tuesday will feature “Fashion Chinese Take-Out“. Join me as I let you know what’s going on half way around the world. Most of your clothes come from there, how about your next look? Next is “Graded by Grace” on Wednesday. You’ll see how products I use did on their report card and also some shopping suggestions that will earn you extra credit! ”Throwback Thursday” will relive and re-laugh some of my adventures and travels. The workweek wraps up on Friday with “They Got It Right!” Here I’ll share a few photos of other bloggers who “got it” with the trend topic of the week! Then to jumpstart your weekend I highlight the week that was in “Fashion Gossip” on Saturday. Hey! What about Sunday you ask? Oh knock it off! The weather is getting better and I deserve at least one day off a week! I’m looking for your input, so don’t be shy!

KARDASHIAN! There. I got your attention. That’s about all it takes most days. It seems these people are one of those subjects that you either love or hate. But they certainly aren’t being ignored. Between the Kardashians and the sort of related Jenners it’s hard to turn on the TV or go online without stumbling across someone in the family. I even heard that a company has developed an app for your mobile device that blocks any story with the K word in it. I’m sort of in the middle. Having been born and raised in China it is a bit difficult for me to understand the fascination in this country. But on the other hand, I certainly can’t blame the members of the family for taking advantage of any fame they may have. After all, it seems that in our modern society people have the attention span of a goldfish. So you may as well get it while you can. The name has been more and more widely known from about the time I moved to America in 2007. That’s actually a lifetime in the entertainment world.

So this got me wondering what you would have thought if you’d heard Kardashian before I came here. Maybe you would have said thanks very much but I didn’t sneeze! Or maybe you would have thought it was some new style of sweater, the Cardigashian; one that features big pockets for rolls of money and a long tail at the back to keep a large rear end warm. Or maybe you confused it with a new American luxury car company, but you’ll have trouble finding a Kardashillac dealer anywhere. I guess most Americans would have been more familiar with Bruce Jenner from when he was an Olympic medal winner. I guess those people are the ones who were in for the biggest shock!

Anyway, what does this have to do with fashion? I was hoping you would ask! Welcome to my first Fashion Gossip Saturday post. Kim and Chris and company have brought gossip to new heights so they certainly fit for that category. And try to pick up a fashion magazine or watch an awards show without seeing someone from the K-Marketers somewhere. Actually I love a lot of Kim’s wardrobe choices. Fashion-Gossip and Kardashian-Jenner are almost interchangeable. So in future posts I’ll be talking about what went on during the week. I don’t plan on pulling the K card but you never know! It does have a certain effect on people!

Are you still following celebrities for fashion and style inspirations? Oh no! If so, you’re already out of date! 😉 In fact, nowadays fashion bloggers are the new cool kids on the street and already are at the leading edge of the trends all over the world.

This week I am going to show you some excellent bloggers who got it right and hope you can learn a few tricks from them!

Group 1: White lace skirt set or dress

Why they got it right?
Grace says:

White Lace can be tricky to pull off because it can make you look older or like a bride. And who wants that, right?

Top photo: Want to be chic? Don’t hesitate to show some skin. A two piece outfit is a very smart choice to create a trendy yet still classy look. Especially with the jagged bottom hem adding more interest.

Bottom photo: With a high collar and long sleeves, a short hem line is a must. And it can be even worse if it’s a maxi. If you’re not careful you may look like a nun. Not that there’s anything wrong with nuns; I just wouldn’t look there first for fashion tips! 😉 Also you never want to fully cover up. If you covered your top, then show some legs. Conversely, if you’re wearing a long skirt then show some arms or neck line. And the hat and shoes added the boho vibe which is chic and right now.

Overall, an above the knee length is good for flattering most body types.

Group 2: Boho pants

Why they got it right?
Grace says:

Colorful silky pants are so comfy for spring and summer to create a boho look. But because they are lacking in structures, they can be a hot mess if you don’t know how to style them. 😉

Both: Don’t be afraid of colors. Any colorful piece is actually easy to match. How? just pick one or two colors on the pattern to guide you. TOP photo: The hot pink top and pink edge on the hat make the whole outfit unified. Bottom photo: white can go with every color.

Overall, a flowy and somewhat loose top is the best match for the colorful silky pants. This kind of top can hide our less than perfect figure while still looking good. Remember, if the bottom is covered, show some skin on the top. A hat and a pair of earth tone platform sandals are good base pieces to build a boho vibe.

Here is my new look for today!
