Trends trends trends, can’t live with them, can’t live without them. I’ve had statement making' sleeves on rotation for a minute. Styled one on the blog here and showing another look today. They add interest and def. make a look stand out more. 

I’m pretty sure you’ve seen this cool trend of extra long sleeves everywhere. They extend far below the regular length and come flared or even poufy sometimes. Street style has been abuzz with it and most 'it' girls are already on board. How about you? Sported one lately? No? Oh c’mon! You'll love it, I promise.

A slit that extends far above the regular allowed for practicality using my hands without an element of clumsiness while wearing this one. I paired it with black layered print cuff tapered pants and accessorized with a gold plate and chain belt, buckle top heels, a faux fox fur stole, a red bag (my new favorite clutch, I keep reaching for it, lol) for some color pop and was ready to burst a move. I have to admit I looked effortlessly stylish. 

Hello FI readers!
What are your thoughts on this simplistic chic look? 

On my Facebook fan page, (please like if you haven’t), I’m celebrating 100K fans this week (dancing emoji) and the messages I receive the most are to show my work looks and a different hair style. What better way to celebrate this milestone than to give my wonderful readers what they have asked for? I'll start a new 'Work Flow’ series and every so often I’ll post my work look. I hope you enjoy this new series. Ummm, I’ll also work on the hair style, hehe.

  4. I always loved all kinds of big sleeves, but I never saw anything like this. This is like a modernist take on a kimono...regular white shirt transformed into something completely new! I like the slides on the side. Keeping this look black and white makes it timeless, but it also enchances the uniqueness of sleeves. Gold belt and bracelts are lovely accessories and that red bag is superb. It is a very elegant combo but at the same time very fashion forward. Truly ingenious styling!!!Y You look utterly beautiful in this.

  36. I love the look of statement sleeves, but I feel like I couldn't deal with them at this point of my life. With a toddler and all the housework, they´d be just a big pain to deal with.
