#GirlBoss: Doe Deere of LimeCrime

via

Once in a while, a female chases after her goals and makes a difference in a society that is still largely male-centric. Isn't it surprising that in this modern day and age we are still amazed that a woman can excel in her chosen field? Hence, I thought about starting a series called #GirlBoss - I know it's not original but I was inspired to be able to showcase female influencers who chased after their dreams and turned them into goals. I'm all about building the fem-pire and inspiring fellow women to do better than what's expected of them. I know it's a little late for International Women's Day but we could all use some inspiration from time to time, right?

Such is the case with Doe Deere, the CEO and Founder of a popular cosmetics brand, LimeCrime. Before the Kylie Cosmetics became a sensation, there was LimeCrime who innovated a brand that empowered women to not only use makeup as a tool to conceal imperfections but also to express your freedom and individuality.


Case in point: the LimeCrime lipstick range that introduced unconventional color options. Aside from the usual reds, pinks and nudes, she introduced mystical colors to the beauty industry via her own beauty line. In fact, the first slogan used by the brand was "It's so bright, it's illegal." It speaks volumes about her personality and how she has used her brand and stayed consistent with her exuberant sense of style. 



Despite the controversy that hit the brand sometime in 2015 with the data breach for its customer information following a website hacking activity, the brand has managed to get back on its feet again. The company's legal and customer support department was also hit with backlash for not handling the case well. Even Doe Deere herself did not evade the wrath of the customers; she too was bullied and attacked online.

Whether you like the LimeCrime brand or not, it's hard not to respect and look up to Doe Deere who dared pursue her dreams. For someone who started out small, she could be an inspiration for most of us. That you can achieve success on your own terms. To this day, she frequently uses her own voice to inspire other women, especially entrepreneurs, to build their own path to business success. In fact, on her Instagram, she encourages people to reach out to her for advice!

Who is your femspiration (aka a woman who has inspired you to pursue your ambitions)?

Pencil Skirt Style

Top: Dresslily (c/o)
Skirt: Twinkledeals (c/o)
Bag: Twinkledeals (c/o)
Shoes: CLN PH
Watch: JORD (c/o)

Pencil skirts are my new favorites. When I don't feel like wearing a dress, I usually turn to them as an alternative. The silhouette it creates make any outfit look ultra feminine (which is why I love them). But if you are not confident with your body, it can be a bit intimidating to wear them. Thus, I am sharing this look to inspire you how to wear pencil skirt and give you a few more ideas. Read more about them below...


Leopard Obsession

When it comes to exotic prints, leopard is undoubtedly the most popular choice for women. In fact, it is seen styled in a variety of ways - as a focal or accent piece. Its versatility has proven itself over the years, which also speaks for how it has endured the fashion world despite other trendy patterns making its way into the market. I, for one, can attest to this as I was once scared of trying leopard print. But when I first did, I fell in love with it seeing how easy it is to wear and style into an outfit without being too brazen or looking trashy whatsoever. 


Leopard Print Flats (only $45)

I got this leopard print shoes from FSJShoes this month and I was psyched when I got it in the mail. For only $45, this pair is a lovely addition to my shoe collection. I already have a few styling ideas for this one, so do wait up for my styled post about that coming soon to the blog!

Meanwhile, check out some of my favorites from FSJ Shoes (you'll love this shoe company!!). You can check out a variety of options whether you want leopard print pumps or leopard print flats


Leopard Ankle Buckle Flat Sandals / Bow Lace Up Leopard Flats
Suede Stiletto Heel Leopard Pumps / Hollow Out Stiletto Heel Leopard Sandals

Pineapples and summer always go together. This tasty and juicy fruit is an essential ingredient for making delicious piƱa coladas to keep you fresh and cool under the blistering heat.

Have you spotted all these adorable fashion items that showcase summer's most famous tropical fruit? I bet you have and I'm sure you've wanted to get your hands on them! Well now you can...

Crushing on Pastels

OUTFIT DETAILS
Top (c/o) / Watch (c/o) / Pants / Earrings (c/o) / Handbag (c/o) / Shoes
Pastels are a welcome change to signal the start of a new (hopefully) warmer season. There is something about sherbet-colored hues that inspires creative and energetic mood. Pastel is a happy hue for me. When I want to feel good and warm, I reach out to any pastel shade in my wardrobe and it does the trick every single time. Whether or not you feel the same way, you cannot deny that soft hues are a classic spring/summer staple. It might look trendy but it has a timeless appeal that will enable you to wear your pastel pieces year after year.

So... how do you wear pastel? My favorite way is with mixed pastels, just like I had done here. I take more than one pastel piece and wear them together. In this case, the blush top, mint watch and the powder blue tote complement each other for a soft yet bold look. 

If you want something more bold than my take on pastels, you can go monochrome with your outfit. You can wear the same color palette together. My favorite idea is to wear a risque crop top with a wide leg pant or high waisted pencil skirt.

If you want to stay on the classic route, though, you can also get some hint with my look today: wear it with neutrals. In this case, I opted for a black ripped denim jeans to go with my blush top and a neutral toned pumps. This will highlight the pastel hues and make them more noticeable.

Lastly, you can pair pastels with brights (just like I've done here too with a pair of bright earrings). This will provide a contrast by adding edge to the soft pastels.

What is your favorite way to wear pastel?
