YesStyle

John Marine | 7:54 AM | | | Be the first to comment!
For the longest, I wanted to feature @YesStyle on StyleSpace by JBM. YesStyle offers some of the cutest fashions for women, men, and kids with garments from mostly eastern Asia. So we're talking Japan, China, and the Korea Republic here. Asian style to you can be had through YesStyle. This blog post here is my look at YesStyle.


A Note About Brands.

All material featured in Brands-labeled posts are of my own opinion. Either I decide to post about a company, or I am contacted by a company to make a post about them. I was not contacted by this company to post; I did this on my own and of my own decision.






YesStyle


YesStyle logo
^ from: (Groupon) - YesStyle offers fashion and beauty items mostly from Japan, China, and the Korea Republic for both males and females.

YesStyle is NOT a designer. Instead, they are a portal for various (mostly) Asian fashions. This is the most popular online outlet for various eastern Asian fashions. YesStyle is the fashion and beauty arm of YesAsia, a site offering goods mostly from Japan, China, and the Korea Republic.

Why YesStyle? YesStyle offers some of the most adorable fashions. If "kawaii" is what you want, YesStyle has you covered with a variety of clothes and footwear to make you the cutest girl in the area or online. YesStyle offers fashion items including clothes, footwear, and even beauty products. For males, they offer great Asian fashion for males as well. Even children can enjoy the fun fashions of Eastern Asia through YesStyle.


Author's Note.

I have always wanted to make a blog post about any kind of Asian fashion, but it wasn't until now I've worked on and completed a post on this topic. It was actually a few years I thought of focusing on Asian fashion for a StyleSpace by JBM post.


YesStyle Examples.

Most of my concentration in this blog post is on feminine fashions from YesStyle. So here are some items through YesStyle just to promote what they offer.

YesStyle women
^ from: www.yestyle.com - This is an adorable dress for women offered by YesStyle.

YesStyle men
^ from: (Pinterest) - Even guys can enjoy YesStyle and the fashions offered there for men.

I would include children's fashion as an example, but I decided not to. So on to Final Thoughts...




YesStyle: Final Thoughts


Since I know YesStyle more for feminine fashion, YesStyle is a great outlet for finding very cute fashions for females and very cool ones for males. If there was probably a knock on YesStyle, you may be unable to find many fashion items if you wear 2XL or larger. So you may be out of luck here if you're a bigger size person. Otherwise, you fashionistas can unleash your inner "kawaii" with clothes from YesStyle! You guys can even enjoy YesStyle and the style they offer.

Lemon Prints

John Marine | 12:41 PM | | | Be the first to comment!
When life gives you lemons, make cute clothes out ot them? Lemon prints have trended hard of late. Lemonade is usually great for warm weather times. In fashion, lemon prints are seemingly as popular as florals. To me, I have a strange attraction to yellow for Spring-Summer times. This usually comes in the form of bold yellow garments and even lemon yellow garments. However, this post is about lemon prints in general.

NOTE: This blog post is NOT about the lemon yellow color; but instead, lemon prints.






Lemon Prints


Let me provide you a picture for reference:

lemon prints
^ from: (Amazon) - This is a lemon print dress.

Whether as a top, a skirt, a dress, shorts, a romper, or any other garment; lemon prints provide some great variety. Normally, prints of foodstuffs don't look stylish to me. I am willing to make the exception with lemon prints.

Most lemon print garments have bold yellow colors for the lemons and complimented by dark green for the leaves. These colors are usually on a white-colored (or at least light-colored) garment. The punchy yellow colors followed by dark green are very much warm weather style material. Sometimes, lemon prints are shown on black (or simply dark) colored garments. No matter what the case, lemon prints surely have their appeal in droves.


Lemon Prints: Blogger Examples.

Here are a few fashionistas wearing lemon print garments. This will give you an idea of how certain fashion bloggers have styled lemon prints. Some personalities may be featured more than once. And please note- this is about lemon PRINTS, not the lemon yellow color. So take a look if interested:

"Lemon Print and White Pumps" (Stylish Petite) « a lemon print mid-length (midi) dress.
"Banana Republic Lemon Print Fit and Flare Dress" (Stylish Petite) « a lemon print dress with some bolder colors than the previous example.
"Find of the Day: The Lemon Print Dress ($39)" (Sensible Stylista) « an off-shoulder lemon print dress.
"When Life Gives You Lemons…" (Sydne Summer) « a lemon print camisole.
"Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy" (Elizabeth, Marie, and Me) « big lemon prints on a striped dress.

Follow these bloggers if their work interests you. I don't just feature them for the sake of featuring them. You may be interested in more of their work if they interest you.




Lemon Prints: Final Thoughts


Lemon prints can actually be quite nice and quite stylish. It looks best to me with light-colored garments, not so much with dark ones. You surely can find any number of lemon print garments ranging from casual clothing to swimwear. Feel free to enjoy sweet lemon style by sporting lemon prints.





This post is over for the most part.

How do you feel about lemon prints? How would you style lemon prints?

Jak&Jil

John Marine | 11:54 AM | | | | | Be the first to comment!
Jak&Jil is about sustainable fashion. This Brazilian company was once a popular fashion blog. It is now an online platform for promoting and producing fashions for men and women with no harm to organisms or the environment. This blog post will allow me to offer a look at Jak&Jil and promote it here on "StyleSpace by JBM." So if you are interested, please stay with this blog post and read on!

NOTE: I was contacted by the company to promote them in my blog. However, all opinions expressed are my own opinions.






Jak&Jil


Let me begin by sharing Jak&Jil's mantra:

"Fashion is Everywhere."

-Jak&Jil

Jak&Jil is a Brazilian fashion designer that used to be a popular fashion blog. The company is based in Curitiba, Brazil; and it has a sales team based in Miami, FL, USA. Jak&Jil was created by Tommy Ton. If Jak&Jil had their way, they believe all fashions should be create with minimal or no impact to the environment or towards living entities. So you can wear fashions promoted by Jak&Jil with guilt-free fashion. You at least know you can look good without wearing (for example) something that was made by killing certain animals or with materials that can damage the environment. Commitment to this level of excellence is commendable especially among types like ethics activists and animal rights activists among others.

Jak&Jil has a presence across 10 different countries around the world. These include locations in its native Brazil, the United States, Columbia, the Netherlands, France, Sweden, Poland, Germany, Italy, and India. The Jak&Jil team itself is very small- about 2-10 employees. The company won Best New Publisher honors in 2016 by Rakuten. So for sure this is a company on the rise.

Actually, I was contacted long ago by Jak&Jil to promote their brand; however, I never got around to making a proper post about them until now. So let me tell you about the campaign for Jak&Jil.


Jak&Jil's Initiative.

The fashion industry and textile industry are the third largest industries in the world. Despite this, it is also the second-largest polluter and second-largest in water consumption. Jak&Jil wants to lower that footprint on our environment. Part of how they want to lower that footprint is through their promotion of sustainable fashions.

Here now is a look at Jak&Jil.


Jak&Jil at a Glance.

Jak&Jil is not a fashion designer, but it is a portal for various sustainable fashion items. Jak&Jil works with a number of different retailers to promote various sustainable fashions. Each item featured on Jak&Jil's website is designed by a certain designer and features a link to the proper store(s) online where the item can be bought. Each item is also (of course) some sort of sustainable fashion item. Brands featured range from mainstream designers to high-end designers. You will find one item priced very affordably, but you may then find one item in the same category costing around four figures. You have designers featured on Jak&Jil ranging from types like Calvin Klein, show me your mumu, Roxy, Rebecca Taylor, Hudson Jeans, Missguided, and more. Retailers featured include the likes of Macy's, NORDSTROM, Zaful, and safs Fifth Avenue among others. So it is not as if all of the designers are exclusively no-name brands selling no-name items to no-name retailers. You are getting real fashion from real designers while enjoying various guilt-free, cruelty-free fashions.

Also, if you are worried about Jak&Jil only catering to a certain audience, fear not. The site offers fashions for certain categories. Plus size fashions for men and women are offered along with intimates and swimwear. There are even sustainable fashions featured for maternity types for women on Jak&Jil's website. There is something for everyone in the world of sustainable fashion featured on Jak&Jil's website.

Of the items offered on Jak&Jil, they only offer clothing. So you will not get to find items like shoes, handbags, accessories, beauty products, or things of that nature on the site. You can still find any number of sustainable clothing for men and women. If shopping sustainable fashions for babies and children, you will find nothing there on that front.


Jak&Jil's Campaign: the Sustainable Fashion Awards.

The campaign set by Jak&Jil is the Sustainable Fashion Awards. Jak&Jil will handsomely reward fashion designers who make sustainable fashions for the masses. A prize package of up to $6K USD will be offered for the winner of the Sustainable Fashion Awards. Half of it will be rewarded to the designer, and the other half will be rewarded to an NGO (non-governmental organization) picked by the winner. Jak&Jil has many partners helping sponsor the Sustainable Fashion Awards. If you are a designer of sustainable fashion and feel you are deserving of this grand prize offered by Jak&Jil, then please visit jakandjil.com/sfa2018 to learn more about eligibility requirements and to submit your entry.


Now that you know about Jak&Jil along with the Sustainable Fashion Awards, let me offer some final thoughts.




Jak&Jil: Final Thoughts


Jak&Jil does a fine job of promoting sustainable fashion. Based in Southern Brazil and with a sales team in Miami, Jak&Jil is one of the many types to showcase and promote sustainable fashions for the masses. You don't have to sacrifice various essential resources to look and feel good. Jak&Jil does so by offering various stylish items for men and women that do not involve harming the environment or even living organisms. Even if you are not the sustainable fashion type, at least give this company a try to find quality fashions that are completely guilt-free.


For More Information...

I would like to thank Jak&Jil for bringing their brand to my attention. I am hopeful my readers and visitors will get to take a look at your site and get involved any way they can.

Lonestar Southern

John Marine | 12:55 AM | Be the first to comment!
Hey, y'all! This post is on @LSSouthern. Formerly known as "A Lonestar State of Southern," Kate is a Texas fashionista based in Dallas, TX, USA. She showcases her style through her many different outfits and even in videos. The blog has come a long way from its humble beginnings. I feel this is an opportunity to showcase this blog to you all. I haven't done a salute-style post in a long while.


NOTE: To avoid possible copyright issues, no pictures or anything will be posted here.






Lonestar Southern


For some time, the blog was known as "A Lonestar Kind of Southern." Kate is the person behind "Lonestar Southern." Her style is absolutely charming. From casual outfits to more dressy pieces, Kate offers many wonderful different outfits. Outfits can range from pretty dresses with cute sandals, to great cold weather outfits with jeans and boots. She is not really about trying to work the latest fashion trends. This Texas fashionista is just someone who has a wonderful sense of style. Kate possesses loads of girly charm and features a number of wonderful outfits. Her personality and charm are immense, and it shows in her different outfit posts.


My Thoughts.

To me, I think Kate is an absolutely beautiful lady. She has a divine sense of loveliness from her sweet smile and even her gorgeous hairstyle. Kate's voice is even pretty in her videos when she speaks. I think Kate is a pure goddess.


If Kate Herself is Reading This...

If Kate herself is reading this, I want to let you know that you are a wonderful individual. Keep up the great work with your fine fashion outfits and other posts. Many blessings to you in all of your work.


For More Information...

So do you want to enter Kate's wonderful world? If so, visit lonestarsouthern.com.

John Marine | 8:27 AM | | | Be the first to comment!
The off-shoulder look is truly feminine. In this StyleSpace Showcase, I devote this one to various off-shoulder outfits.

Romper/Playsuit Showcase

John Marine | 2:17 PM | | | Be the first to comment!
(UPDATED: July 12, 2018)
Rompers/Playsuits have really become popular again since the mid-2000s. Some people today think these one-piece shorts are for babies and kids. Just don't tell that to the many fashionistas who rock rompers. If anything, rompers are the covered alternative to proper dresses. Rompers are technically dresses. The very short length of rompers can make them even more attractive than proper dresses. To that end, I want to showcase various rompers worn by many different fashion personalities. So be sure to take a look around to enjoy what style rompers can provide.

NOTE: Rompers/Playsuits are jumpsuits, but this blog post only relates to one-piece shorts. So none of the following posts feature jumpsuits with legs at or below the knees.


LATEST UPDATE(S)/REVISION(S)

JUL 12 2018 - added extra section






Romper Showcase


romper playsuit
^ from: (Nordstrom Rack) - Rompers/Playsuits can be a stylish alternative to proper dresses.

Rompers/Playsuits can be tough to pull off for some figures. A lot of people find rompers to only be stylish for babies and kids. However, the right romper can just as stylish (and even sexy) as most mini dresses. Rompers can be very casual or a worthy alternative to a mini dress for more elegant rompers. Maxi rompers are even becoming a thing for those who want the elegance of a dress but with the covered shorts appeal of rompers. Maxi rompers can be casual or even formal. In fact, there are prom "dresses" that are formal-type rompers.

The most common footwear with rompers are usually sandals or booties. A foxy pair of pumps also will go great with rompers. Some rompers are casual enough to where they can be worn with a pair of sneakers. Having a stylish hat and/or a cute handbag will set you straight with romper outfits.

I did mention rompers before here on "StyleSpace, by John B. Marine." I just offered this introduction to explain why rompers are so loved. What is left now is to show you many different romper outfits by many different fashionistas.


Criteria for Inclusion.

Here are the basic requirements for this Showcase:

• any romper/playsuit outfit

Simple enough, huh? So in the next section, various rompers by various fashion bloggers will be featured.




Rompin' Around the Blogosphere for Rompers


Please visit these sites and follow their work if you enjoy them. I want to show off various rompers/playsuits from various fashion bloggers. Some blogs featured here may have not been updated in a long while. Also, some featured blogs may appear more than once with different posts. Take a look:

"Amazing Petite-Friendly Romper for #10" (Sydney's Fashion Diary) « a layered-look romper that looks like two individual pieces.
"What Would Blair Waldorf Do?" (A Walk in the Park) « a plaid romper as part of a cute preppy outfit.

Remembering Polyvore

John Marine | 7:57 AM | Be the first to comment!
Polyvore was great for posting sets. Now, Polyvore is no more- gone without much a trace. What was Polyvore sets are now widgets for fashion retailer SSENSE. SSENSE acquired Polyvore on April 5, 2018. I made my own sets with Polyvore even. This post is a look at Polyvore and why I think this is such a huge blow to fashion types.

What made Polyvore so popular was the fact this allowed people to put together their own fashion collages (called Sets). Even yours truly put together Polyvore sets for various creations of outfits. The fact Polyvore seemed to be a means of creating outfits was a boon for fashion types who otherwise would have to spend money to create certain dream outfits based on collages. Now that these collages from Polyvore are no more, one big piece of fashion experimentation is now dead. Polyvore helped to create fashion ideas most of us may otherwise not be able to create such ideas. Unless you saved images of whatever Polyvore sets you created, your fashion visions created through Polyvore are basically dead.

Even for a guy like myself, Polyvore was instrumental in me visualizing outfits to be worn. I learned Polyvore was no more when I looked at my "JohnMarineDesigns" page to see my Polyvore sets be turned into widgets for SSENSE. I pretty much have felt as if Polyvore went without a trace. It was the best possible service to visually showcase fashion ideas. Now with Polyvore gone, I will have to find more ways to visualize fashion.

I would like to thank Polyvore for giving myself and others the opportunity to create our own outfits through unique visualizations. Now that Polyvore is no more, fashionable types will have to find other ways to visualize fashion outfits. Thank you to the Polyvore team for helping us create our own sets and visualizations from the time Polyvore was existed on the Internet.





And that's all for this blog post. Here is your chance to discuss this topic...

Do you miss Polyvore? How will you remember Polyvore? How much has Polyvore meant to you?

Slide Sandals

John Marine | 6:27 PM | | Be the first to comment!
If basic thong sandals bore you, try slide sandals. These sandals have trended of late and offer a good bit of style for open-air comfort for your feet. These are best for errand-running fashionistas since these have low heels. Some others will say these can be just as stylish with outfits as much as even the most chic shoes. Maybe the most popular of slide sandals are the ever-famous Birkenstock style sandals. While slide sandals are worn by males and females, I am only focusing on slide sandals for females in this blog post.

Here are some examples of slide sandals:

slide sandals
^ from: (Amazon) - Most slide sandals are easy and simple while also being comfortable.

slide sandals chic
^ from: (Target) - Some slide sandals can be chic enough to pair with outfits.

Most slide sandals aren't as appealing to me. So they don't hit me style-wise as even the most elegant or seductive sandals. These slide sandals are probably more comfortable than a lot of high-heel shoes; but a lot of times, such sandals don't have as stylish of appeal when paired with certain outfits. Some of you may have read how I feel that outfits get ruined because of a poor choice of shoes. Slide sandals are like that to me at times. Sneakers kill most outfits for me; slide sandals are not as toxic to my eyes. At least slide sandals have a degree of style that makes them pleasing to wear and pair outfits with. I just don't like a lot of slide sandals with various outfits.

Slide sandals are stylish and comfortable, but I would stay away from styling slide sandals with chic outfits or versatile outfits. A certain pair of slide sandals won't ruin a lovely floral dress. However, there aren't too many slide sandals that would nicely compliment a pretty outfit. So you are free to experiment to your heart's content with slide sandals and pairing them with outfits.





So there is another post in the books. Let me know what YOU think:

Are you fond of slide sandals? Can they be as stylish as their higher heel, platform counterparts?

I appreciate your involvement with my work. I will try to keep providing posts on fashion and beauty in this blog. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Rose Gold is an interesting color. Fashion-wise, it makes for a nice neutral color. Think of Rose Gold as pink but with some personality. Believe it or not, even some men sport Rose Gold and have Rose Gold items. So this color isn't exclusively feminine. I learned of Rose Gold as a rose color, but mixed in with gold.

Most Rose Gold colored fashion pieces include various garments (including shoes), accessories, and even makeup. Rose Gold can be a fabulous color for formal outfits, especially formal-type dresses. Rose Gold can be beautiful for pumps and chic sandals. This color can also be a hot one for lingerie. Some even liken Rose Gold to casual shoes, but I haven't seen too many I liked when researching this topic.

Here are some examples of rose gold fashion (all images from Amazon):

Rose Gold top
^ This sparkling T-shirt is in rose gold.

Rose Gold shoes
^ Rose Gold can be a great color for footwear. To me, chic and fashionable shoes work better with rose gold than sneakers or other casual style shoes.

Rose Gold accessories
^ This is a rose gold ring with many lovely diamonds.

I find rose gold as a fascinating color. While blue is my favorite color, it is unlikely I'll be the biggest rose gold fan in the world. Definitely consider this color for your fashion and your beauty if you are tickled pink about this pink-like color.





That's it for this blog post. So...

What do you think about rose gold? How would you wear it?

Stay stylish! :) Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Floral Leather Jackets

A leather jacket provides edge. Flowers represent purity and beauty. Combine the two. Of late, leather jackets with floral prints have trended. The juxtaposition of peaceful and edgy make floral leather jackets make these jackets quite interesting. Normally, floral prints are reserved for casual and even formal outfits. Let's be honest a bit- there is nothing wrong with leather jackets. They can be pretty stylish and even tough. But really, adding floral prints to leather jackets make them a bit more interesting. You don't really lose a lot of toughness if you prefer edgy fashions. Maybe if someone thinks leather jackets are too masculine or something, maybe floral prints keep a girly vibe to a leather jacket. You can still be pretty with a floral leather jacket without feeling too edgy. Here is an example of a floral leather jacket:

To be honest, I actually like these floral leather jackets. Surely a female can look great in a leather jacket (even various guilt-free or eco-friendly leather jackets). Floral leather jackets provide a little more personality outside of the personality leather jackets provide in the first place. I usually like motorcycle jackets for females as far as leather jackets are concerned. A great floral leather jacket can be plenty stylish and plenty pretty while not being over-the-top edgy. So if you like floral leather jackets, proudly rock them in your wardrobe! These jackets express prettiness while not being overly edgy. They can then be the perfect balance of edgy and pretty.





Or at least, those are my thoughts. Let me hear (not literally) from you...

What do yo think about floral leather jackets?

I apologize for the slow flow of blog posts. I am a one-man studio, so I do a lot more than just blogging. It is still great to return to blogging to please all of you fans. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.
