Game Day Glam!

By: Cinthya Rubio, Marketing and Communications Director @ Our Hands For Hope

The 2014 World Series is the 110th edition of Major League Baseball’s championship series. This year two amazing teams, The San Francisco Giants and The Kansas City Royals, are facing each other to see who takes the title and bragging rights of being Champion.

Today game 7 will be played and the team that wins takes it all!

Usually when attending a baseball game or party, it is customary to wear the team colors that you are cheering for. If you have a team t-shirt or jersey, that will definitely score you some extra fashion points. Showing off your fashion sense at these events is usually not a prerequisite to attend, but have fun with it, it is “America’s Pastime” after all!

I have put together two looks for todays World Series. The name of the game is “Game Day Glam“!

Soften up the look by adding a lacy “Greta” Scarf!

Blue Jeans are always a great go-to wardrobe piece but for some extra glam look for some that have a metallic finish, glitzy and shiny accents are coming strong this season. Add some extra texture to this sleek look with a “Luchita” Sweater and a “Mirna” Beanie.

Fall for Fashion with Our Hands For Hope

By: Cinthya Rubio, Marketing and Communications Director @ Our Hands For Hope

Fall is finally here and pumpkin spice is in the air! We were anxious to bust out our new line of ponchos, sweaters, hats and scarves to walk the streets all bundled up in comfy warmth. (Check out our Fall/Winter 2014 collection!)

While some know exactly what to wear, others are wondering what the trends are for this year, and if they should even attempt to follow them. We think trends are not rules set in stone, but more like guidelines that you can decide to follow. Just remember: “Fashion” just like art is a means to express yourself; don’t be afraid to add some of your own personality to your look!

Here are four major trends for this Fall 2014:

  • Ponchos– We saw them early this year at London Fashion Week and haven’t stopped seeing them yet! This great outerwear piece compliments all body shapes and can be worn with a variety of outfits.

  • Hosiery, Leggings & Tights– with patterns, texture and variety of colors they add an extra wow factor to outfits this Fall.

  • Leather or Pleather– the sleek look of this material has come back this year. The natural black and brown tones are always welcome, but don’t be afraid to navigate towards colors like oxblood, forest green or yellow for the more audacious crowds.

​The soft, cozy texture of alpaca knits compliment the sleek, cool texture of leather accessories.

  • Metallic– bling will always be a girl’s best friend, but this season metallic accents are completing looks left and right. Silver, platinum, gold and copper are not just for jewelry; consider using these tones for nails and even makeup!

Incorporating all of these things to an outfit might seem daunting, but it can be done. Just remember to always add your own personality!
