New Adventures: Moving My Blog to Another Domain

Hey you guys,

For the past few months I've been working on re-branding myself and my blog, and I'm excited to announce that The Fashion Expressway is coming to an end. My new blog will also cover my favorite vintage shops, recent purchases, OOTD, and fashion trend posts but will also add a little bit more of my personality into it. 

Thank you again for reading and following The Fashion Expressway and I hope you make that transition with me over on Wordpress.

The Fashion Expressway Is Adding a Beauty Category!

Hey you guys, I decided to add a beauty section to this blog for all my nail polish and skin care freaks. I'll try to incorporate make up products every now and then, but it will be quite difficult because I rarely wear it.  I'm the type of  girl who will apply some bb cream in a heartbeat and head right out the door.

So be on the lookout for new posts in this category in the next few days!

The Fashion Expressway Is Changing

When I first started the The Fashion Expressway, times were different. I actually had time to blog, and school wasn't so hectic. And since I'll be graduating this year, there is a 88 percent chance that I would be devoting all my time to my studies.

So to keep The Fashion Expressway blog posts up-to-date, I vow to blog at least once or twice a week with the things that interest me the most in the fashion industry. 

I haven't decided on the specific days I'm going to post just yet, so stay tuned with that as well.

3 Quirky Looks That Will Definitely Turn Heads This Fall

Although many people are turning towards the warm and dark hues this season, that doesn't mean you have to. If your style is bold and full of excitement and you're in need of a little style inspiration for this fall season, check out the looks I created below.

Mass A-Peel 

I can't get enough of this tank from Modcloth. Instead of pulling out a hue from the tee,  I decided to go for a vibrant red blazer for a bit of surprise. When it comes to the bottom, you can always opt for a longer skirt or a cool pair of pants. Finish off your ensemble with a bright yellow bag and a pair of combat boots. Quirky Fall Looks You Can Wear This Fall


Fur it Up

It's sad to say, but I'll probably never experience wearing a fur coat in Miami, but your girl can dream right? For this look, a bold black-and-white fur jacket complements an eye-catching printed skirt very well. Stack up your arm with a crap-load full of bangles and throw on a pair of cute printed textured tights and you're definitely on the right track.

Love Plaid? Mix It. 

Plaid is a must-have every fall season.

 For this look, a pair of plaid pants pairs perfectly with a graphic sweater, but if you want to take your look up a notch, try styling it with a white and black polka dot sweater to add on the quirkiness. A simple gold necklace and statement graphic earrings create adds a simplistic but edgy vibe, while a pair of Converse and black backpack produces a retro touch.

A Sleek And Casual Way On How You Can Wear Your Plaid Blazer

This fall season, plaid of course is one of trendiest prints you'll be seeing, along with a few houndstooth prints. And although you can find tons of plaid skirts, pants and tops everywhere, I think a plaid blazer is definitely a staple piece you should consider having this season.

 Below I show you a cool way on how you can tackle your plaid blazer.

Outfit Inspiration: Grpahic Tee x Plaid Blazer
Simple...yes. Casual....yes. Sophisticated... of course! Adding a graphic tank and ripped jeans allows your look to be more on the casual side. And while your plaid blazer and heels amp your look by adding the right amount of sophistication, your black tote and watch allows your blazer and graphic tank to remain the focal point of your look.

Are you wearing plaid this fall? What pieces do you have your eyes on? Leave a comment below and let's talk fashion.

An Easy Look You Can Wear This Fall

Too much plaid and houndstooth this fall can get can get a little tiresome, especially if you would rather be a little more adventurous with your style. Although I am one of those people who loves plaid and houndstooth, it's doesn't hurt to explore a little bit. 


For an effortless and modish look, try incorporating a fun printed skirt, take this hand painted one from Farfetch for example, and pairing it with a simple graphic tank. Introducing an animal print amplifies your look with a classic approach, while the gold accessories adds a luxe touch.

Style Inspiration: 3 Professional Yet Chic Looks You Can Wear to Your Next Job Interview

While searching for a job might be a little time consuming, determining what to wear is usually the hard part. Should I wear a suit? Is this considered professional? Should I add a pop of color?  Are only some of the questions we ask ourselves before the big day. But if you're tired of the usual "interview uniform," and would like to wear something chic yet polished on your next job interview, these looks will definitely spark a little creativity the next time you're deciding on what to wear.

Add One Color

Step out the norm, and inject a little color in your look. If you decide to wear a brightly colored blouse, I recommend toning it down with a neutral tone blazer or cardigan. Black slacks and heels keep this look "interview appropriate," while classic pearls adds a sophisticated touch.

Timeless Prints

One can never go wrong with a black-and-white classic print. Add a bit of flavor by opting for a colored heel, and pearls for a more classic approach.

Get Creative

If you're tired of pants, an appropriate-length pencil skirt is always an option. This gray textured skirt with leather accents puts a fresh spin on just your regular old pencil skirt, while a simple white blouse styled with a black neck-tie slowly amplifies your look. Blue simple heels and a polka dot clutch adds a lively touch while maintaining refinement. Finish off your look with a pair of simple good studs and a classic watch.

Runway Review: Moschino's Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear Collection

When it comes to bringing out your inner child, Jeremy Scott has succeeded once again, this time with a Barbie flair. First, it was the McDonald's inspired collection that had everyone's attention, now it's Barbie's turn.

Real-life Barbies strutted down the runway with bright blonde wigs and bold pink lips. Giving us a glimpse of what the world would be like if they came to life.

I can definitely see Rihanna,, Rita Ora, and of course Miley Cyrus rocking a few pieces. These looks are right up their alley, bold, fun, and creative.

I'm in love with the tunic dress!

 
While Scott made sure to incorporate pink into this collection, he did not forget the color addicts. Bright colored prints were in abundance and executed well on crop tops and suits, giving us an ode to the 90s. 
 

 
 
Sequins anyone? How about a suit Chanel-inspired? Yes, there was a little bit of that too!
 

 
This collection was made exclusively for the daring individuals.
