As we all know a perfect accessory can either make or break an outfit! With right accessories you can make a simple LBD look extraordinary.... OR simply tacky! Well, what if accessories are not the only thing that can make or break an outfit? What if every detail that goes into your look matters? What if every little thought that you put into getting ready is what "distinguishes you from the pack" ?..... Which comes down to: DO DETAILS MATTER?
Although this is a personal blog and I just rant about my random thoughts, I am very eager and interested in hearing yours. So please do not hesitate to agree or disagree! But at the same time, I would like to add that in no way do I apply my views to every individual, but only to myself.... I figured that I should state this before sharing my opinion on this topic :)
Personally, I am a total detail and neat freak that will not leave home if the things do not look neat. I like everything to coordinate and look orderly, but still maintain that " I wore this watch because I felt like it " look. Rather than because "this watch perfectly goes along with my rings, shoe buckles and the chain on my purse". Extreme? I would disagree.
I feel that the finishing touches really distinguish a woman and add that je ne sais quoi.I guess the idea is to get used to paying extra careful attention to details. At the end of the day, if you are wearing a pair of Manolos with a terrible pedicure...it says a lot! I believe that you don't need to spend lots of money to look chic, all you have to do it pay attention to details. Perfection always lies in details :) But perfection carries a different meaning for everyone, therefore everyone should not be afraid to venture out and just have fun!
At this point in fashion we don't need uniforms, but unique and very personal pieces that separate women from the pack.
To make this post a tiny bit more fun, I've decided to share with my daily "finishing touches":
My favorite: Michael Kors gold watch; Marc by Marc Jacobs Rings; Marc by Marc Jacobs House of Card Harem Ring; Marc by Marc Jacobs Miss Marc Studs.
I tend to wear the same accessories obsessively over-and-over again. Mainly, because I purchase every item in order to go with my favorites. I put a lot of thought when committing to an accessory.
Mani and Pedi
My favorite: Chanel "505" and OPI "Done Out in Deco"
I am very strict on myself when it comes to my hands and feet. I think that every girl should be well maintained in that area. Personally, I enjoy the process of watching a movie and giving myself a nice mani and pedi two/three times a week. I don't particularly like the salons, for some odd reason it feel very invasive.
My favorite: Miss Dior Cherie Eau De Parfum and Coco Mademoiselle Chanel Eau De Parfum
Like Chanel said" A woman who does not wear perfume has no future", I believe that perfume should be every woman's essential. Your sent sends a very loud message about who you are. However, one should never over indulge, as the strong scent can irritate others. Perfume should be personal and sensual and experienced from a very close distance.
My favorite: YSL Rouge Pur "141"
I think that a touch of lipstick always makes a girl feel sexy and beautiful.
Since technology rules our lives nowadays, I must admit that my phone is my lifesaver. So I decided to add a cute touch with a pastel pink Juicy Couture case.
Neatness to me is of great importance and I can't live without an iron for a day. Ironing has become a hobby, especially in warm weather when fabrics are light and wrinkle easily. A girl should never leave home wearing wrinkles!
What are your daily "finishing touches"???
Once again, I would like to express my appreciation for all of the support during such a difficult time!!! Thank you!!!
P.S. I will be back with an outfit post very soon... ;)
Wishing Everyone a Beautiful Day!!!
