Watch it here  “Life is a Beautiful Sport.” TRUTH!…best marketing ever! So far this wallet is sold out but here is a similar one that is also on my wish list…all white leather Lacoste Wallet $195. Image courtesy: Lacoste.com

MONOCHROME I BOLD IS BEAUTIFUL

Black and White Maria Yerukhimova Lifestyle SkyBold is beautiful for 2014 and what better way to start the New Year but with the Black and White Trend! The new Balmain 2014 Collection Houndstooth obsession is a perfect example. With every collection Balmain is on point with wearable 80s & 90s inspired looks and this houndstooth jacket & skirt is no exception. This look is extra special with bold jewelry and a modern belt! Love Balmain! To get the updated modern monochrome look don’t be scared to mix bold patterns together and my favorite – all white with a black bag or black shoes or the opposite – all black with a bold all white accessory such as a white bag. Phillip Lim is a great example of how to wear this modernized trend with his 2013 Collections. My other obsession comes from the new ring collection from Chanel with the “Ultra” ceramic diamond rings that are crazy beautiful! I especially love the white ceramic ring with dimonds that would make for a unique engagement ring. Images courtesy clockwise: Zara Handbag – Zara.com, Chanel Ultra Rings – Chanel.com, Balmain 2014 Collection, 3.1 Phillip Lim 2013, Balmain 2014 Collection, Design by Lifestyle Sky.

BLACK & WHITE TREND

Maria Yerukhimova Lifestyle Sky Black and White 1Balmain always uses black and white in the most creative ways that is not only visually stunning with mixing different prints together but also very wearable with everyday basics. I love this black and white jumper with beautiful floral and striped pattern from Balmain 2013 Collection..now I just have to figure out how to get my hands on it! Also not to forget the always inspiring Chanel with the iconic black and white combination. My new obsession is matching or some what matching my tops to bottoms especially prints and this top left hand side look from Saks Fifth Avenue – Akris Punto top and pants are at the top of my must have looks! Check out Saks Fifth Avenue December looks including the black and white stripes trend. Images courtesy clockwise: Chanel Handbags, Chanel.com, Saks Fifth Avenue – Akris Punto Top & Pants, Saks.com, Balmain 2013 Collection, Barbara Bui 2013 Collection, Saks Fifth Avenue – Thakoon, saks.com, Balmain 2014 Collection.

SPRING 2013 TRENDS I PRINTS + PASTELS + COLOR POP

lifestylesky blog

Still keeping up with all the Spring Runway 2013 trends! So many beautiful collections from New York, London, Paris, and Milan Fashion Week! My top two looks this weekend are from Roberto Cavalli S13 and Erdem S13. These two looks encompass my favorite Spring trends PRINTS + PASTELS + COLOR POP. These two looks might not work for out and about/ every day wear but I am inspired to pick one trend from each outfit such as the pastel lace from Erdem with skinny jeans and/or white pencil skirt. Also obsessed with the beautiful detailed print for top or bottom with a unique color pop form Cavalli.

Currently channeling “Prometheus” & “Alien” futuristic style – white on white. To make white on white trend stand out… mix and match textured fabrics.
