Best of Summer Scents: 2015 Edition

The AMBER Archives

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

Summertime calls for light floral and fruity fragrances and many times it can be hard finding a good balance between those two scents which heavily dominate the fragrance industry. You don’t always want to smell like a fruit stand or have an old lady/new baby (nice juxtaposition huh?) type of floral scent – where is the middle ground?! That is what I’m here for! These are my top two fragrances I have been reaching for this summer:

Notes: luscious black raspberry, mango, Asian pear, peony and violet

The perfect floral and fruit combination I have ever found in a perfume. This fragrance when first sprayed evokes its more dominant fruit scents and with wear leaves a subtle but noticeable floral/fruity mixture. This perfume is a hit with women of all ages when I wear it; I’ll have the receptionist at the Doctor’s office comment as well…

3D Printing in Fashion

The Fashion Foot

Iris van Herpen - 3D fashion

Fashion has a long history of being crafted by a person and a sewing machine. There is a certain belief that when something is made directly by the designer, then it has a higher quality and therefore a better value. However, American “fast fashion” is hardly ever actually produced by designer hands and, more often than not, produced in sweat shops. But what if we eliminate the step between the designer and the consumer or totally get rid of the “designer” completely?

The fashion industry has slowly been incorporating 3D printing since the technology began, but the majority of the 3D printing was used to create accessories or decorative pieces. As the technology improves, designers are able to make complete garments and even artificial fabrics that look and feel like the average cotton-blend fabric. Recently, there was even a whole fashion show dedicated to pieces made by 3D printers.

SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE!!!

After a long, brutal winter, one of my favorite fashion seasons has arrived. YEAH!!  Here in my hometown of Tampa, Florida, the summer brings sweltering heat, 20 minute thunderstorms and bold, bright summer trends.  Today was a gorgeous day filled with marshmallow shaped clouds floating across our cerulean blue skies, yet the heat index reached 101 F! Wow! Most would definitely say, “There is NO WAY one could be fashionable without being frustrated in such heat”. Well I am here to tell and show you that it is possible.

Check out the new summer arrivals now available at my retail location.  Our model is wearing a light weight canary yellow sleeveless hi lo shirt with a crotchet inset, styled with our canary yellow tote bag and houndstooth printed heels.  If you’re not in the Tampa Bay Area you can still be elegantly stylish with more of our exclusive items by purchasing from my online store at www.skyunikues.com.   Be sure to follow me for more summer styles to come!!

HAPPY SHOPPING!
