The 2015 Grammys

This past February 8th was the 57th Annual Grammy Award Ceremony that was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. It celebrated the music industry’s newest artists, best songs, and best albums. As always, the red carpet was teaming with celebrities, which is always a unique fashion show.

The 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards - Red Carpet

One such couple with a unique style was Farrell Williams and his wife Helen Lasichanh. Farrell wore one of his iconic “shorts tuxedos” in a crisp white with grey accents. I don’t think that I have ever seen him in a full pair of pants. The reason might be to bring attention to his leather oxfords or that he is just a guy who likes to be cool and comfy even in a tux. Farrell’s wife Helen also fell into the unique category with her steel grey jump suit with the white racing stripes. She could have thrown on a pair of sneakers and gone jogging afterwards.

In the Incredibly Cute category was Taylor Swift. She has become just as well known for her fashion, as well as her music and this vibrant blue gown with the cut out straps, mini dress front panel, and draping pleated back is right on the money for her age and figure. Taylor’s long legs are accentuated with her fun purple, chucky sandals and the matching blue earrings bring the whole look together.

Grammy-Red-Carpet-Rhianna

For the I Can’t Believe She Wore That award, there were two nominees. First is Rhianna, who showed up on the red carpet in a strapless coral/pink gown with an overwhelming amount of frills, tiers, and ruffles. The dress made Rhianna look like she had been swallowed up by a cotton candy.

Kanye_West_Kim_Kardashian

The second nominee was Kim Kardashian who was photographed flanked by her beau Kanye West, who was wearing his velvet Robinhood outfit, on the red carpet. Kim was wearing a heavily beaded gown that was split down to her navel and up to her hips, making it look like a very expensive bathrobe. It must have weighed a ton and I can imagine there is a whole lot of fabric glued to skin and fake tan going on with this one.

Keeping Up With Popular Trends in Australian Women’s Fashion

We are all aware that fashions are no longer changing from season to season but often from week to week as a result of the frequency with which new concepts and designs are ushered onto the market. Keeping up with, and being able to afford, the latest fashions can be a daunting task. There is a way, however, to keep up with the hottest trends at the quality you desire and the prices you can afford. Like many women in Australia have discovered, online shopping is the answer, and here are 3 reasons why.

Australian-Fashion-Week-trends

1. The top fashions. Australia’s most sought after fashion designs can be found simply by sitting in front of your computer. Dresses from Honey and Beau are now available online, as is the quality line of clothing offered by Sass. This means that you no longer need to spend time navigating the crowded stores, but that you can scroll through an impressive online selection. You can complete your wardrobe any time of day from the comfort of your couch.

2. Competitive savings. It’s no secret that the goal of some websites is to get you to spend as much money as they possibly can. That being said, there are many reputable sites that strive to provide quality clothing at fair and competitive prices. Many companies work hard to forge relationships with manufactures and designers that allow them to provide specials savings that they are then able to pass on to their customers.

3. Quality customer service. A lack of personal attention was once a concern for many consumers regarding online shopping. As this trend continues to grow in popularity, however, many online shoppers are finding that when shopping with the right company, these concerns are unjustified. Not only are websites available for 24 hour shopping, but the quality of the customer service they provide has exceeded the expectations of the consumer.

Vierra White Sports Watch

For reviews.

The story of Vierra watches begins with two college friends, Eric and Jeremy, who live their lives inspired by the phrase, “Time is always ticking, so do what excites you.” The brand that they created was meant to inspire others to live a more adventurous existence and enjoy all that life has to offer. This particular line of watches that Eric and Jeremy started is meant to be the perfect accessory for whatever road you travel.

The White/Gold Vierra silicone watch is the epitome of both trend and durability. White watches were originally thought to be only for Spring and Summer wear, but in today’s fashion scene they are a color for all year round. The crisp white silicone will give you a contrast to any outfit that you own and be a durable companion on your life’s adventures. The gold-tone bezel and linear numeral markers are simplistic and modern enough to be able to cross over the “completely casual” line to be worn with a dressier look. It also contains a quality Miyota Japanese movement with a low-drain battery and is safe to wear while swimming and surfing.

vierra-watch-white-sideways

Silicone watches have been an ongoing trend and is popular with both women and men alike. The Vierra White/Gold watch is substantial enough in size to be able to be worn by a man, but is not so overwhelming that it cannot be worn by a woman and with the price of $59, a very popular range to be afforded by all. However, if white is not your style, then they also have a black/yellow and black/blue version for the same price.

While day dresses tend to be colorful and bright, opting for a black dress can give off a sophisticated vibe, making you appear like a strong, independent woman during the day and a sexy party animal during the night.

Flaunt your fave

What are the pieces that you love the most? This is the question that you have to answer in order to come up with a day to night outfit that would suit any type of activity. Planning is crucial when you are trying to figure out your outfit. Think of the things that you are going to do throughout the course of the day and determine the pieces that you will wear.
