Casting for a Boyish Photo Shoot

I just got the Fashion Stylist Certificate at FIT, here in New York. I would love to enjoy the warmth and make some pictures for my portfolio, if you wanted work in collaboration, please contact me.

This editorial bellow is about boyish or tomboy style. It might be elegant and with tailoring clothes. I am thinking about really use men wardrobe to make it more interesting. The season is fall 2016. We are going to shoot it in 125th Street commuter train station, in Harlem, built in 1897, still with its original dark wood.

I have made a search on the internet to explain better what I am looking for in this photo-shoot. I am open for new ideas. 🙂

It is forbidden to be thin

Any reader of my blog knows it, I’ve been fighting against obesity for months. Losing weight after 30 is more difficult. Some people criticize me, but I’m not making any radical diet. Before, at the time of twenty-something I’d lost more than 20lb only eating less, today it is much grating. Some people think I’ve already “leaned” enough, but I believe that only we can decide when we might stop, when we reach our result. Obviously I’m not talking about serious cases like anorexia and bulimia!

Today they talk so much about plus size model! In real world a plus size model is not what we really call as plus size. The plus size model wears 8. Every time that I publish a plus size model in my timeline on Face Book girls are crazy, “if she was plus size, I’m what?” Probably somewhere between fat and obese! In addiction, I’d been in the line of obesity and I can say it, I do not think I was beautiful, I was not healthy and I was not specially happy! There are people who feel good fat, but I don’t feel ok in round shape.I have the right to be thin (or try to be thin).

other day Victoria’s Secret exhibited a campaign that was highly criticized. They placed several models and wrote “the perfect ‘body’.” Of course it was a pun between the body of the models, and the perfect body of lingerie.

Here in the US,they only had talked about it for while. Of course, the average size here is 14, the sizes 0 or 2, the model sizes, are almost intangible or practically. However, even when the challenge is too big, I can accept it. I was weighing almost 80lb more than any Victoria’s Secret Angel, when I decided I do not want this overweight life. It was my first step to change.

I am indignant when we are forced to accept that fat is cool. No, it’s not nice! It is not sexually attractive. You eat a lot of junk, your skin looks bad. You do not exercise, you’re limp. Your options are less intelligent, you spend more time at home than doing any activity. Comes laziness and soon, their productivity decreases. For a fat, even climbing stairs is a challenge, I had had that experience. I want to have the perfect body.

Active Wear for Famous Girls

The brands of active wear are growing quickly. We have established brands such as Nike and Adidas, and famous stores like Forever 21 and H&M selling sporty clothes very well. I love to buy famous brands at Century 21, T.J. Max, Marshall’s and Burlington with discount. I have a lot of Reebok top and shorts that I had paid less than 10 bucks. Do you know more stores with good deal?

Nowadays, active wear has left the clubs and embedded in our daily lives. A lot of girls do other activities with this kind of clothe. I go to school with gym clothes, because I always go to the gym after school. Others girls don’t even exercise, but they wear sport clothes. This attitude is  amazing for the business, and the active clothes is becoming less boring and more fashionable. Who disagree?

I have to confess, sometimes I spend one week with legging pants (or with running shorts). My case is so serious that when I wear normal clothes, with sandals, people praise me too much. That’s funny.

I was looking for some inspiration, because I’m not 100% fan of this style…

Adriana Lima is the most desired model by men now. She’s beautiful, exotic brunette clear eyes and exudes sensuality, right? She is the most famous Victoria’s Secret model, but to work out she is not a goddess. Anything new? No, just a lot of black, I also love the color to workout. Look that belly…

Alessandra Ambrosio also dare not much, but she plays more with colors and layers. She also likes spandex pants, I love this cloth… She is my favorite Angel.

Gisele Bundchen prefers going to the gym in a casual style. She probably changes the clothes in the gym. She likes to wear, top, legging pants and t-shirt… I also workout like that during the winter.

Gisele is one of richest women in the world, but she is always with the same sneaker. She used to me Victoria’s Secret model, now she quit.

Izabel Goulart is my muse. She likes to show her perfect belly. She is more fashionable. There isn’t secret to be an Angel. Exercise is the key. She is my favorite Victoria’s Secret model.

Kim Kardashian is very basic to woekout. She is very curvy, however I prefer really skinny girls like Taylor Swift.

Taylor Swift  could be  model. She is tall and thin. She is always photographed here in New York leaving the gym like a princess. Super cute. Last week I bought a spandex shorts like these from Reebok, I’m anxious to run with it to see if it is good. I don’t like to run with legging. .

This girl is a hostess in a Brazilian tv show, she is very famous for her perfect butt, she is very basic to workout. I’ve been thinking about starting a active line, but I am not sure that people like someting different, specially because even the celebrities are so basic.

Bra Development and Design at Fit

I just finished SXL 200 Bra Development and Design with Camille Block. She is a famous lingerie designer living here in New York. The course has six class, and in each class she had invited a different guest to make the class richer and more interesting. This course is a great opportunity for networking, because we have known a lot of great professionals.

In the last day of class, we had to give her a final project, very simple, just to be graded. Camille is a very well educated person with a soft voice and red lipsticks. For me this course was exceptional for one particularly side. I had not known how to buy bras in New York. In Brazil it was very easy to me. I used to buy 42 or medium sized. There we do not have cup sizes. When I said it at class everyone looked at me like if I was a little devil. A professional bra development said that if there is no pad it is possible doing bra without cup number, but we have pads. However I realized the pads in Brazil are a little different.


I have noticed that the pads in Brazil are flatter and here in New York they look like a cup. I had taken some photos of my bras, both of them fit me perfectly. Of course, with American style I am more powerful and beautiful.

Here we bou bras looking two measurements, first is the under boobs size. It can be 32,34, 36… this is your real size in inches. In addiction, they check your boobs size, each inch difference between your under boobs and your boobs you have a cup size, they called it with letter like A, B, C, D… I am a normal girl (not fat, not skinny) with small boobs, my size is 34A. If you had problem to figure your size out, you might go to Victoria’s Secret, there the seller person has a metric take and will do the job to you. On the other hand, I would prefer buying Calvin Klein bras. Do you have any preference? I am new here, I love to know your favorite bra!

MET Ball | My Considerations

Para ler em português, clique aqui.

I am not Anna Wintour. Actually, I have been living here for short tim, probably my opinion does not count do much. Last year I went to see famous people leaving the MET, after the MET Ball. I was in the other side of the street, separated from famous by a fence. In that moment, I thought I would never criticize any dress after a stupid personal opinion. The famous women are so beautiful and skinny, like the models. I bet they were preparing during moths for this event. The dresses are flowing and do not compared to anything sold in Century 21, my shopping Meca. The smiles were white and large. Each movement we could see a flash. They did not walk, they floating. In this magic moment I felt silly for ridiculed a person who is happy, famous and well succeed. Most of us will never belong to this select group. My opinion is just my opinion, they will continue happy with or without it.

I have been reading a lot of websites talking about the last Met Gala (or also called Met Ball). To be honest, I do not like to do review about looks, because there are many blogs doing the same. However, I have to say one important thing; this event has a theme annually, in other words, the guests must wear gala costumes. The theme of this year was “China: Through the Looking Glass”.

Of course, it reminds me the Lewis Carroll’s book “Throught the Looking Glass” (the second part of the famous “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”(?)) mixed with Traditional China’s Fashion.

After my research on the internet, I found some references about fashion in China. Let’s see the most commented outfits of last Monday?

Of course, Lady Gaga is on the list. She is always so controversy because excesses, but this time she was more restrained, dressing a Balenciaga dress, that was designed by Alexander Wang. She also wore a super boot with a lot of glitter. However the blog Fashionista said Gaga was wrong, because kimono comes from Japan. Sure! Kimono is typical clothing from Japan. I agree with this without thinking, but for me, Gaga was wearing a typical outfit from China. I am putting some images of references here, so you can decide it with me.

Theses dresses above are Chinese dresses called called qipao or cheongsam. I think Lady Gaga is closer to this. Below we have kimonos from Japan.

What do you think?

Many people have criticized Rihanna dress. What is the problem? I saw a lot of memes comparing it with egg, pizza or Sponge Bob.

The dress was designed by Guo Pei. Is it out of the dress code? For me it was very clear, the theme was a mix between China and crazy wonderland!

The photos above are of fashion shows in China, and Riri nailed it, you like it or not!. 

I have realized that fashion bloggers, journalists and the public in general have difficult to understand the dress code when the event is more playful! It is like a costume party, but more elegant! There is nothing complex to get it.

 😦

Sarah Jéssica Parker was with a crown designed by Philip Treacy and a dress from vestido H&M developed to MET Ball. Rihanna and Sarah Jessica won the o trophy of the most ridiculous!

I did not like these dresses:

Jannifer Lopes had a Chinese dragon gown, she and Kim Kardashian and Beyonce were almost naked! The last two were outside of the theme. These girls are famous and I think they do not have to do it to appear. For me, this vulgarity is more about ego.

I really liked Amal Clooney’s dress. The color, the layers, insede of China without being loaded. She won that night! Amal wore John Galliano for Maison Margiela Couture. Other girls who did homework:

Rita Ora withTom Ford. Irina Shayk wore Atelier Versace. Karolina Kurkova with Tommy Hilfiger.
