Hello, Jun E people.  It’s been a long time since I’ve spoken to you guys. So many things has happened between now and my last post on Jun E Caniel. We just welcomed a new member to the style team by the name of Deja. So look forward to posts from the both of us.

To test our styling techniques we both styled each other in the latest Jun E Caniel apparel.

Deja decided to rock her high-waist jeans today. I styled her in a sheer white, modal silk boyfriend tee. She’s also wearing a cotton candy pink beaded necklace with an Handmade Expression clutch/ iPad case.

The clutch is one of the new items being carried by Jun E Caniel. The design pattern is very exquisite, esp. when it comes to the stitching. Not only does it look good, it’s also light weight.

With the weeks to come, look forward to seeing some new clothing and reading every Friday a Styled By Jun E post from both Deja and I.

Hey, everyone!  This is Deja, the newest addition to the Jun E Style Team.  It’s a nice sunny day, and Elvira has stopped by on her lunch break  looking very pretty in her red hot skinnies and her blue star tank, which is designed from earth-friendly fabric. Photo1

This is an excellent way to go green and look fabulous doing it. Her beaded necklace is handmade locally from the healing stone hematite and is great to wear with a casual tank while running errands or paired with a cute dress and going out with friends for the night.

So what are you waiting for?? Meet me at Jun E Caniel!

Styled by Jun E: From Winter to Spring Jun E Style

In Culture, Design, ECO-Friendly, Fashion, T-Shirts, Uncategorized on April 12, 2013 at 7:02 pm

Time for some spring cleaning!!! Remember as kids when our parents would force us to take a day from our weekend and sort through all our winter clothes? It was out with the old and in with the new! Fortunately, what we considered a chore, isn’t so much of a chore anymore.

We all know that spring brings warmer weather, but unfortunately mother nature doesn’t just jump right into spring, there is what we call a transition phase. This week I’ll help you transition with the swap of the jackets from leather to denim Jun E style. Plus, the Jun E Caniel brand was created for this type of weather! I’m pretty sure if you’re a follower of the Jun E brand, you’ve read somewhere “It’s a Jun E day” . Which basically means “the sun is shining, the weather is sweet” quoted from the reggae legend Bob Marley, even though each Jun E member may have their own interpretation of the phrase, that’s how I would like to simply put it. And trust me with the rising temperatures of Spring rapidly approaching there are many more Jun E days to come!

(Above: A sheer, silk modal pull-over in navy layered over a cardinal hamsa tank with a handmade scarlet red t-shirt scarf . This nifty color friendly outfit can be worn in the beginning days of spring. This is perfect for when the warmer weather hasn’t fully broken-in, but you do know its too warm outside for anything that was once apart of the “Winter Collection” attire. You can pair this outfit up with a maxi skirt, colored skinny jeans or just some casual khakis.

(Above: The bare white long-sleeve tee is prefect for those “I don’t feel like getting dressed but I still want to appear as if I made an effort” days. I used the same scarlet red scarf from before  just to liven it up a bit. I rolled the sleeves up to make them quarter length. Perfect intro to spring!)

(Below: I used the same pieces of clothing but I decided to make the hamsa tank  more visible. So, I tied the pull-over around the waist (80’s style) and double necked the handmade scarf. Now, you can wear this with a pair of shorts and those cute sandals you just brought (I know I’m not the only one who has started spring wardrobe shopping!)

Normally, a transition phase doesn’t last a long time. So, sooner than later you’ll be walking around in just a tank & maxi skirt, especially if you live in the southern regions.

Best Wishes

How To Make Your Jun E Caniel T-Shirt Stylish

When some people hear the word “t-shirt”, they automatically think of the typical over-sized tees that we get at concerts, on vacation, or for running marathons.  Depending on the quality of the fabric and graphic, a t-shirt can be the center piece of any dress casual outfit.  Many people do not know how to make their t-shirts more stylish. The very essence of Jun E Caniel lies in its limited edition sustainable tees.  With every blog post I try to incorporate how the Jun E tees are not only comfortable, but stylish at the same time.

When I was first inspired to become a model, I would watch ANTM (America’s Next Top Model) and take mental notes on how to look, walk, stand, and act like a model. One piece of advice I will always remember is Tyra Banks preaching to the contestants that a t-shirt & a pair of jeans is all you need. Keeping this in mind I have never tried to over do a outfit because it could possibly take away from me (it’s vain, I know) and what I am wearing.

So, over time I have transformed into the girl who wears t-shirts a lot, but in a very stylish way. Now, many may ask “How do you make a t-shirt stylish? It’s a t-shirt.” There is a big different between wearing a t-shirt and looking like you just got out of bed and wearing a t-shirt and turning heads.

1.) Tucking:

Tucking in a t-shirt is something that in 2013 not many people do. Just try it!! It takes your outfit from zero-sixty in no time. Shown in the photo above you can always rock your tee kind of carelessly tucked in. Or if you would like you shirt to be tucked in completely, use a belt. Wearing a belt makes your outfit look a little more clean.

2.) Layering:

Layering is every fashionable person’s best friend. Layering is a way of life. Even people who aren’t into to fashion layer their clothing and half of them don’t even realize what they are doing. When its comes to a Jun E tee, layering is one of your best options. You can layer with a blazer like I did in last week’s blog with the hamsa tee or with a scarf as shown above by Legend herself. It does not matter what or how you layer your tee, whatever choice you make should bring out the best in you and make you feel good.

3.) Cutting:

Snip, Snip, Snip!!! Every summer I always find a day when I cut my old clothes and make them into something more fashionable or trendy. Cutting an old shirt into different styles can actually be fun. Plus it saves you money. When you cut and refashion an old shirt you have just created a new and stylish one.  Above is a video from YouTube on how to cut your tees into a tank top, a crop top or a fringe top.

4.) Just Being Creative:

In the house of Jun E it’s all about creativity.  Legend has already started cutting and stitching her old tees, making what we like to call a refashioned cowl neck tee. She cut off the excess part of the tee (the bottom of the t-shirt)  making it into a loosely fitted cropped top.  Then the collar is cut off to create a different neckline. Instead of wasting the material (always remember fellow Jun E people ZERO TO NO WASTE) Legend sews it to the neckline and the shirt is transferred into a cowl neck. I love it! Maybe once I have my baby I’ll be able to rock one and show off my tummy……lol

So there you have it! 4 easy steps on how to make your Jun E Tee more stylish and fashion forward.

The more creative the better!!!

Wait, Is It Spring ?

-Yes, It is!!!!!

My body is finally at the point of not fitting into any, and when I say ANY  I mean NONE of my old clothes.  I tried on a couple of Jun E Caniel t-shirts and NOPE, none would cover my baby bump! Happily, I’ve accepted the fact that my body is going through different changes…..and sizes.

Despite this, I can still show my fellow Jun E followers how to style the clothes within the boutique until I get bigger clothes…lol

Coral and Kelly Green are the two colors I’ve been seeing in the fashion world as the new colors for Spring. Here, I match two shirts in both colors with dark denim jeans. Now, I don’t know about anywhere else but here in NC, the cold weather hasn’t really broken yet. So, a nice neutral color cardigan will do you and your outfit some justice. Plus, who doesn’t like layering outfits?!!!

The accessories I’ve chosen are all bought at my part-time job ALDO. I figured the yellow scarf can compliment both the Coral and Kelly Green Tees.

For those who love Spring and the mixture of colors you can wear, you can accessorize with the triangle earrings, either one of the three will match with whatever t-shirt you chose to wear. I’ve also included possibilities for nail polish colors I think will add more detail and pop to your simple Jun E outfit.

Now, for the females who aren’t into being so colorful, once you layer both the scarf and cardigan, you can tone the outfit down just a little w/ the brown cheetah print sunglasses and the brown bangles.

HAPPY SPRING LADIES & GENTS!

Hello, Jun E people!

This is Elviria W. coming to you from Jun E Caniel

Being a lover of fashion ever since I was little, I was very excited to start interning for Jun E Caniel.

I remember the first time I fell in love with fashion. I was no older than at least five years old, living in North Philly, PA

My aunt would always come and visit me and my mom. She would come so often you would of thought she lived with us! LOL One night she walked in the house wearing a brown fur coat and

I just remember saying to her “oh Auntie I want a fur coat JUST LIKE YOURS! Can you buy me one? Please, Please, Please.”

Her and my mother laughed at me and she  responded “You want a fur coat like mines?”

“Yesssss” I whined Everything she wore I wanted & being that my aunt lived in the Bronx, NY she was on in what was HOT. I wanted to dress just like my Auntie.

She then went into her suitcase and pulled out this brown fur coat just like hers but it was just for ME!!! I was so happy. She bought the majority of my clothes, LOL and I loved her for that. For about a month I wore the same coat either when I would go to school or just to walk around the house. My mom would call me a DIVA and ask for a fashion show every now and then, just to sit and be my audience. At the time I was just expressing myself and being who I truly was.  Now that I’m older, I realized I’ve lost that little girl. She’s back now and her name is AJ (Autumn June) and she’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Autumn June has been UNLEASHED! So I look forward to allowing you all into my world of where FASHION meets STREETWEAR!

-Elviria W.

The brisk winds of winter have brought about the perceived need for us to pack away our summer favorites and bring out our thick cardigan and sweaters.

But who says every outfit or piece of clothing has a season???? NOBODY!!! Here I have styled a black eco-friendly cardigan with a summer kelly green burnout tank top with a few original pieces.

  Despite the cold weather we’ve been having a lot of sunshine lately, and this kelly green looked FRESH in the sunlight!

E

The boldness of the black cardigan paired with vibrant green tank gave my winter outfit some fun.  To give this outfit a more casual look I paired up my own medium wash jeans from PacSun with a locally made t-shirt scarf (that can be worn as different accessories).

While playing around with the t-shirt scarf I realized one can rock it as a headpiece! I LOVED THE LOOK! It’s so different and has a  JUN E Style. Later I moved the scarf to my neckline and it still looked amazing.   The choice of how to rock the t-shirt scarf varies with one’s personal style.
