Tips to Help your #Teen with #Fashion by the #Eklectionist


So, let’s not kid ourselves….. Kids have come a long way in the looks department, in large part to our Vain Generation. We are obsessed with our Eyebrows, lips and generally looking flawless. We body shame, they body shame, we talk one way, they parrot that back into their language (things have different meanings now… apparently “bro” is a bad thing to call someone, who knew!) All that in mind, you know that when you were in High school and I DO MEAN HIGH SCHOOL (I am not promoting middle school cuteness sorry) We wanted to look pretty. We wanted people to notice us for our beautiful features and not for that time we threw up in class freshman year…. we wanted people to LIKE us, and who likes someone that can’t put themselves together right?Β 

SO if you have a Β teen (Or if you are a teen… HEY GIRL) check out the approved by me styles to try this year or next. (Gradually introducing new garments is usually better than going all out and shocking everyone, you want it to look seamless, effortless, like you don’t care, even when your anxiety is telling you to run!) Check them out and I would love your feedback!!

P.S. Remember to NEVER wear a top that shows your stomach, cause that’s inappropriate and you will look scandalous, and if you are wearing a skirt, wear spanks underneath… you don’t want a Marylin Moment πŸ˜‰Β

AZ Style Alert #Eklectionist and #WhitePrivilege


I am saddened to say that the style scene of Scottsdale AZ (For women) is very lacking. It is cookie cutter at best at Hipster at most. You get the vibe of privilege to the extreme… I blame this mainly on the college lifestyle that conquers the Tempe area and spills over into the Scottsdale clubs and beyond. But even if they were not there paving the way for mediocrity…. There would still be no life in the garments. It saddens me to say this because I love my Beloved Scottsdale. But we need to spruce it up! … Here are some examples


Do you know what I see in these photos? Fear. Complacency. Fashion Flops.

Women in this city are scared to get out there and make a wave with their Body Feng Shui, not make a ripple with their conformity. Their outfits Scream, I live a Privileged life and I want to look like it forever to the tee! Remember that girl next door you saw jogging down the street? yeah there are like a million clones of her around here… I’m just saying. #NoShade let’s mix it up!

A Tip for the trendy girl, trying to pull off Edge. If it Scares you, DO IT. Half the battle of true fashion, true style… is Confidence. If you ave confidence in your look, others will follow suit. Try one of these looks below new time you look in the mirror and see one of the outfits above!

Multi-Colored Hair, #Eklectionist wants to know, Do YOU Dare?


A great Hair Fashion Trend I am seeing more frequently among my own generation ’89 (not just the kids) … is the Multi-Colored hair. But I am not talking about the crazy punk/emo neon hair, I ma talking about the same colors on a more tones down basis, mixed with natural colors… in some AMAZING ways.

One of my favorites is the Silver/Grey and Blue combo, because it’s such a soothing look that whether you are being wild or Classy, it works!

Here are some awesome looks! Send your pictures in! ❀

Can you guess the favorite #Designer of the #Eklectionist ??



Of all the Amazing High Fashion, High Quality Designers there are to choose from, I chose none other than Chanel. Between the tomboyish styles and the Upper Echelon High Fashion Looks they give us, I love them ALL. The give all the tomboy styles a shape with their eyes on your confidence they seem to capture the woman’s essence perfectly.

When I look at Chanel designs and Editorials, I see Confidence, Inspiration, A BOSS mentality of all who grace the brand… and I see Women ready to take on and take over the world, all the while making room for their powerful femininity.

Embrace the Bold, Embrace the Sensual, Embrace the Strong Brand of Chanel… or you can’t sit with us… (Just kidding LOL)

Here is Gigi Hadid in Chanel, looking AMAZING and Flawless as always. I love her makeup here too!

And although you may say Gigi Hadid can make anything look great… you are right. however, the same cannot be said about Kristin Stewart. When Kristin Stewart Stepped into Chanel she tuned into a completely different woman (At least the aura depicts so)

See for yourself!


Here are some great shots of recent Chanel Ads/Editorials & Events that caught my eye:


Hope you Enjoyed the visual!

Angela Johnson came from the LA fashion world and because here in AZ our industry was MORE THAN LACKING in resources and capabilities…. She created her own! She not only designs her own stuff, she created a network of professionals and resources for our community so that you can find everything and everyone you need, to become and remain successful in Fashion. >> www.labelhorde.com

Take a look at this Awesome woman!!

Angela made ball gowns and AMAZING, cool dresses and other garments out of t-shirts that were tossed out (which is called up-cycling) cause obviously they look better now πŸ™‚ SERIOUSLY! If I could do these things with a sewing machine I would! She is simply an Amazing Crafts woman and HIGHLY talented in creation. She makes garments that accentuate all the right curves and bring out your bold or unique personality… don’t believe me? check them out!
