New Series + Giveaway: I love your Style

What is style? Do you have style? How to have style? Who has style? Inspired by the book "I love your Style" by Amanda Brooks and my love for style I thought, why not have a series about style!! So I contacted a couple of fabulous bloggers and for the next couple of weeks every Friday we will have some style inspiration! So for all the fashionistas out there or for those that are trying to cultivate their own style, to those making an effort to getting dressed in the morning; and to the ladies interested in having a functional and treasurable wardrobe....make sure you stop every Friday to be inspired by these fabulous ladies!

Arriving at a strong sense of style that suits and makes you feel great everyday and everywhere depends on confidently knowing who you are and what is important to you.The fabulous ladies featured on this series found their personal style..and they are going to share with us their style secrets....!

And why not have a giveaway of the book that inspired the series!! So if you want to participate in the giveaway, just leave a comment with your thoughts about what is style for you and make sure to stop by every Friday to be inspired! The winner will be announced at the end of the mini-series.

I think style is feeling comfortable while also pushing your boundaries. Sometimes fashion makes you nervous while also leaving you exhilarated.

Style isn't just what you wear, it's how you carry yourself. And if you make the effort to style yourself to suit you and no one else, often your uniqueness and character will shine through.

I think style should be effortless but should get your heart beating when you see something beautiful. It should be admired by others but it should allow you to feel like you look amazing too. It should fit flawlessly and emphasize everything great about you whilst being new and exciting and something you've never tried before. I think that you cannot have great style without learning from your mistakes.

I think style is being classy and fabulous in whatever you're wearing.

SoJo said...

In my view style has to do a lot with self confidence and knowing what works for you, it rarely has anything to do with money.

Cool series! Style is comfort and a presence that can be identified as quintessentially you!

What a great giveaway and series! I think we always need to be encouraged and reminded to think for ourselves what are style is and not just look at what the latest stores are picking out for us. Yes, that can be daunting, but oh so exciting when you've put together an outfit that works.

Unfortunately, I have more work-appropriate clothing than "my style" clothing... I try to mix them but can only go so far. I want classy, creative, fun, happy, flattering, the latest and FABULOUS!

What a great idea Sasha! Looking forward to Friday :)

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Great series- looking forward to it!

Style for me is owning it and being confident...whatever you wear has to be worn with confidence!

Elizabeth said...

Style is something that not only makes you feel great wearing, but makes those around you feel great too. It doesnt overpower, overwheilm or stifle, but inspires creativity and fun!

Carpe Diem said...

My style is inspired by my surroundings and my innate feelings of what feels right and beautiful. I was born and raised in California, so for me that equates to simple, elegant, and chic..which is then personified by my juxtaposition of "opposites". For instance, I will pair a Ralph Lauren cargo pant (casual and chic), with a print T from urban outfitters (simple and edgy), and throw on a chic Calvin Klein blazer (elegant and chic)and wear a dressy sandal from Franco Sarto...and keep the accessories simple: diamond stud earrings, a ring, and a small diamond cross.

Style is the ability to put down the (insert offending item here) and be okay with the fact that no matter how much you love them, they just don't. look. good. on you.

ashlina {the decorista} said...

oh i am so excited. this sounds like a super fun series.

Sasha {Everything Fabulous} said...

Style has everything to do with the goddess wearing the threads. It's not what you're wearing but essentially how you're wearing it that matters. I can be sexy and luminous in sweats and a t-shirt as much as in a Herve Leger dress and sultry Louboutin's!
Style is confidence and that can only be orchestrated and radiated by the composer: ME

Saludos Querida! My personal style is safari chic. I love the idea of travel and the fantasy of creating functional yet chic outfits out of a small weekender bag. Perhaps it comes from my roots as an immigrant to the US and having to move so many times. I still haven't stopped moving, so my clothes need to accommodate my lifestyle. I love clothes and pretty jewels so there is also a secret compartment in my travel bag for all the treasures I've collected along the way.
Even when the chips are down, style is a way to lift up your spirits and exude confidence.

Me encanta esta idea, buenísima! Que disfrutes de un lindo fin de semana :)

I think someone's style reflects his/her personality and what s/he is about. I think it comes easily for some people but not all (like me). I have trouble because I think I'm uncertain as to who I truly am and I have to reconcile that with want to project to the world. I think it's a struggle for people - this book looks so helpful!

SogniSorrisi said...

Style is so personal. I think for people who are born with style its just innate. Mostly, though, I think being comfortable in what you're wearing and doing helps you to be stylish. And a great bag and shoes don't hurt!

Caitlin @ Sacramento Street said...

This series is fabulous - I love learning more about my favorite bloggers!

My style is neutral, classic with a touch of glamour - whether it's a chunky necklace from JCrew or a fabulous purse or shoes. My home decor style is crisp, clean and neutral. I love mixing antique pieces I find around the world with modern pieces from West Elm.

Anna said...

I love this mini-series! It is so hard to define personal style. I am vintage, country (but not chickens in my kitchen country), trendy. I love pale colors, tan, white,blues,grays. Black & brown is my favorite combo. Style is reflected everywhere, your closet, your home, etc.

Andrea said...

What a great series and giveaway!
For me, style is a form of self expression and cannot necessarily be defined. It is a combination of how you feel at a particular moment, a color or texture that inspires you, and the creativity of being able to put the pieces together things to create a look that is your own.

Karen said...

Sounds like a lot of fun! I love decorating/fashion advice!

Island Gal said...

Susan said...

well, style is when you are comfortable in your skin and that can be seen. you are seen as a well-balanced person- you have style.

Style to me is looking polished, elegant and sophisticated whether you are in jeans and a t-shirt, or a lbd. It's the essence of refinement.

Style to me is about having fun and connecting to what one wears. It's about reacting emotionally to clothes, rather than viewing them as a functional necessity.

I've been eyeing this book for ages and would love, love to have a copy!

What a perfect fit for this fabulous series!

claire said...

i am keeping my fingers crossed for this precious book!

My style usually is based upon what is flattering to my body and with colors that i feel compliment my skin tones. I am not as big of an accessories girl, but wish I could be more.
