Just like every year, my invitation to the annual Met Gala must have gotten lost in the mail.  This year, living so close to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I had this strong desire to crash the one of the most fashionable events of the year.  Instead, I just streamed the red carpet arrivals on my laptop and vigorously took notes on this year’s theme and how the stars interpreted the theme when it came to their style choices. It has been a tradition here on LivForStyle to share my opinions on which celebrities owned…

Today, on LivForStyle we have a very special guest…my beautiful, inspiring mom.  Mother’s Day is right around the corner (Sunday May 13th to be exact), so today’s style post is dedicated to my wonderful mom and all those great moms out there.  Most of the time, my mom is behind the scenes and plays a major role on the LivForStyle page as my photographer.  But, today instead of asking her to only take my photos, I decided to point the camera in her direction and let her have her blogger moment, I mean after all, she has learned from…

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a year since I graduated from college, the end of May to be exact.  Last year at this time, I was entering my final month and a half of college and although it was one of the greatest times of life, it was also one of the scariest.  The fear of the unknown crept into me during those final weeks on my college campus. The unknown of what life after college was going to entail, because I knew once the end of May hit, I was still jobless…

Currently, wishing it was spring or at least warm outside, but as I write this sentence we just experienced snow this morning.  Something about the month of March I just despise.  Maybe it’s because I get my hopes up for warm weather and sadly get disappointed with cold temperatures and snow on the ground.  I wish after the holidays we can just fast forward to spring/summer, but sadly I am not Mother Nature and have zero control over the weather.  However, I do have control over my outfit, so today I am embracing spring like patterns and colors in the hope that Mother Nature will bless us with…

We’ve all been involved in a fashion disaster or two. The idea of ripping your pants down the middle may seem comical, but it’s less than funny when it happens. Few fashion disasters are, especially when your favorite pieces fall foul to the cruel hands of fate. But, nothing lasts forever, and relationships with the best clothes often end this way. In truth, though, few fashion disasters are unsalvageable. Would you give up on a relationship with anyone else so quickly? Of course not. We fight for what we love, and you should fight for…

Have you ever heard the term “off duty style?”  It usually refers to a model’s off duty style and I am far from being a model but I do have days where I don’t feel like dressing up or wearing tight, restrictive clothes.  Like today, I call this look my off duty style because it involves a simple, effortless formula…leggings, a loose fitting shirt, and sneakers. Keep on scrolling to read all about my off duty style. It’s still a mystery to me why leggings are so comfortable.  Maybe it’s just the cozy cotton material…

After a few years of long luscious locks accompanying the hippy vibe seen everywhere, 2018 is bringing back the short hair look, chopping off those tresses without a backwards glance.  From pixie cuts that are styled with longer bangs or ruffled into a natural ‘fairy from the woods’ look to bobs that just brush the shoulders, short hair is back with a bang. Image Credit: Pixabay Hollywood is all about finding the next new look and celebrities like Olivia Culpo, Kim Kardashian and Cate Blanchett are already rocking some of the hottest trends.  If you…

Life is all about making ethical choices.  And believe it or not, beauty and fashion is an industry ripe for questionable ethics.  There is something we can all do about this now, in the modern age. Whether you are just out of college, or you’re looking for a way to give back to society, there are simple ways for us all to contribute, and you can do this in your fashion choices.   How can we do this? (Pixnio) Buy Locally Buying items locally isn’t just convenient, but it’s beneficial for the local economy.  Spending…

Remember when you were in elementary school and the highlight of your school day was art class, or was that just me? Well anyway doing arts and crafts was my favorite and still is, but there was no better project than one that involved paint.  It was always a blast to dip my paint brush in my favorite colored paints and splatter it on a white piece of paper.  Sure, it made a mess, but it was the mess that made the best looking art pieces. I reminisce about this project simply because my sweater…

Beauty and fashion, from a critical and pessimistic perspective, could be considered as a waste of time.  Surely it’s just time spent in narcissism, painting our faces and wearing the best new clothes in an effort to look better than the next person?  Surely we have too high an opinion of ourselves to even begin in the first place, and this is emphasized in the fact that we continually spend our money to achieve such an aim? Pexels Not so.  In fact, what was mentioned above could not be more wrong.  Fashion and beauty are…

We all know my relationship with the winter season.  It’s not just the gloomy, snowy weather, the inability to tan by a pool, or checking the weather every day to make sure no snow is in the forecast that will cause an inconvenience.  What it’s really about  is not being able to show off a killer outfit because you have to worry about bundling up.  Luckily, this winter season I don’t have to worry about hiding a great outfit because my new coat makes a statement and also keeps me so warm.  Keep on reading…

We all have that one article of clothing, one color, one pattern, and so on that we are just attracted to, you know that feeling whenever you walk by it you need to buy it even though you have several versions of it in your closet.  For me, that’s anything camo, especially camo jackets.  So of course on one of my recent shopping trips, a camo patterned jacket caught my eye and I had to purchase it to hang along with my 3 other camo jackets, oh well.  For me, camo is a neutral pattern,…

In the fashion world, denim and pearls are the hottest combo right now.  Just think of denim and pearls as your next peanut butter and jelly, oil and vinegar, tomato soup and grilled cheese, and so on.  Insert whatever food combo or combo in general that goes great together to understand the point I am trying to make, denim and pearls are the next big thing.  Now a days, you can find this stylish combo on a jacket, blouse, or pair of jeans and in today’s post it’s all about my pearl studded denim jacket.…
