Casual and Chic!

Greetings Fashion Friends:

This lovely white tank top, on sale at www.aleyacollections.com, is divine! Its semi-open back design highlights the model’s elegant figure beautifully. The mandarin collar, which is held together by a single button, is quite lovely! The tank top and orange colored short skirt – as displayed in the photo above – create a harmonious whole. I would also recommend a pair of blue jeans to go with the attire, as shown below. Angie Everhart, who was one of the great models from the 1990s, wore something like this  seen in the photo below in a photoshoot conducted by Carlos Serrao. She knows how to be casual and chic!

Our model wears the white tank top beautifully. I love how she works with the camera in highlighting what is best about this outfit. Her smile is natural; her eyes are pleasant and warm. 

I also love her choice of accessories and makeup. The o-shaped earrings are simple but elegant; the shade of lip gloss blends superbly with the colors of her clothing. I also like how her pair of black high heel sandals complement the color of her hair. Right now, I am in the middle of writing a blog post about my wonderful Instagram friend @stylegurjayne. In our exchange of emails, she made this excellent fashion point:

“Fit – How it fits on the body, what it is doing to the shape of the body

“Feel – Is it comfortable, practical? Does it allow the body to move freely?

“Function – Is it appropriate? What does it project?

“Fabric – Does the fabric feel nice? How does it need to be cared for?

Fabulousness – Do I feel fabulous in it?”

“Makeup,” as Jayne kindly reminds us, “should enhance your natural beauty.”

Our model’s demeanor seems outgoing and enjoys the company of her family and friends. I can see her enjoying a wine cooler with her friends at a cottage on Walnut Lake (a community not far from Birmingham, Michigan). They chat about their day and future summer plans. After a beautiful Barbeque, she sits with her beloved while watching the wonderous fireworks on display that evening. As she sits, she remembers a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt about friendship: “Many people will walk in your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.”

I hope that your visit to www.aleyacollections.com was an enchanting one.

Sincerely,

Gabe xoxo
