A Cozy Tradition

It's that special time of the year where you have two categories of outfits you end up LOVING & WEARING:
Classy & Cozy

Ladies, we do love our dresses and pumps but let's not hide the fact that this is the best time of the year to wear those cashmere sweaters & flannel pj's.
It's the time of the year when your vacation time is precious. You decide to take your fluffy moccasins out on a date in your living room & watch some traditional movies...

Here are some of my must-watch traditional Black&White/Colour movies that can put you in a warm & comfortable mood at any time:







1- Roman Holiday, 1953
2- Breakfast at Tiffany's,1961
3- Sound of Music, 1965
4- Titanic, 1997
5- Pride & Prejudice, 2005
6- Sex & the City, 2008


Let's not forget the best Christmas tradition of all... 



A movie you can watch at HOME, but never ALONE since 1990.

Have yourself a cozy movie marathon!

Gesture is Fashion


My dearest readers,

As one of the most important days of the year is approaching, we must really ask ourselves what its purpose really is.
Before we do so, I must remind you just a little something… As Coco would say, Fashion is not only in clothes but everywhere around us.

This Week, JKal’s quick "stylish tips" are the following:

Remember to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

A hug translates into a thousand words. Give some.

Remind your loved ones how much they are dear to you.

Keep in mind that your smile is the best makeup out there.




 Repeat above with your personal stylish touch.
Oh… I believe I forgot to check list one more…


Eat lots & lots of goodies!!!


Merry Christmas To All

A Festive Attire


My idol once said...
"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
-Coco.

Given the fact that Christmas is exactly 19 days away, how do we interpret Fashion into all of this?
From lacy aprons to fancy Christmas trees, style marks its territory everywhere!

The Christmas season is, in my opinion, the only Holiday where we can completely OVER DO IT! There's just never enough sequence on our dresses or lights on our trees. Let's not forget the sprinkles on those delicious homemade cookies!


btw: is your Christmas playlist ready?


& then comes the wardrobe dilemma...
What is your biggest fear? To overdress & stand out or to walk in those 5 inch heels? Remember, this is your free-for-all pass. Everything is permitted.


So let's start...

TULLE
is just magical & festive.
A comfortable fabric that you don't see many people wearing.
(That's the goal!)
If you want to dress it up for the New Year countdown, add some nice pumps & statement necklace. If you just wish to trend it around the house for Christmas Dinner, style it up with a sweater and a few bangles!
Talk about a Winter Wonderland..

SEQUENCE
Chic yet playful.
Try & get away from the black sequence seen on every mannequin in stores. Try out silver or gold this year with some curls in your hair paired with elegant earrings.

GEMSTONES
Talk about a statement!
You know me & jewels?!- NO LIMIT.
Whether you rock em' in necklaces or earrings, you will certainly not go wrong!

Take a look
Pop Stone
Arvan
Snowdrop
Spike Gem

EYE MAKEUP
I always thought more was less when it came to makeup.
Never put your emphasis on more than one feature. For example, if you wish to add eye makeup colour, don't overdue it on your lips or cheeks. 
You always want to make sure your look is effortless.
But once again, we do want to look festive during these Holidays. 
Red lips & eye liner make the perfect match!
Shimmer & Gloss always seal the deal!

***

Whether it's a red dress, high booties or a ballet bun, you always need to start your look with "roots". Once you've established that, you will logically be able to style yourself from head to toe.




Always remember to make your environment Fashionable

Bee-Tee-DoubleU

My dearest readers,

BY-THE-WAY...
this is a quick article to remind you to always be happy & grateful for everything and everyone that you have!
I have been a big bundle of joy these past few days...
From becoming an aunt for the fifth time to other great news in my life; everything just came so fast. I honestly don't know where to pull my smile first.


Remember, some day you'll be thankful for those unfashionably bad days you had! (I do use Fashion outside the "clothing" box)

With this said, I wish you all a Happy December!!
Start prepping for the Christmas Holidays, Santa's right around the corner.

& Remember, repeat actions above by trending your own style!
