Statement Shirts: A Dressing Up Guide For Lazy Girls & Boys

However you flip it and turn it and roll it around and  – [insert any synonym here] – more often than not I end up dressing up in a hurry. Hence in the same outfit all the time. So I’m either in jeans + various tops (statement shirts in spring), OR I’m in activewear. I’ve come to terms with it really, and I think it’s a sartorial condition of the lazy fashion lover. Also, I don’t have a walk in closet. It’d be so easy to dress up if I saw all my clothes lined up, and practically putting themselves together for my fashion sake. I can’t be the only one in this situation, right?! So this condition alongside my lack of time and lazy way of being, has led to me opting for style gimmicks – jewellery, great shoes, statement shirts –  that trick…

This season when it comes to shopping shoes aka our Saturday cardio, we’re more eclectic than ever. (read fashionably indecisive, and all over the place). The moment you can wear any shoes without the fear of getting cold feet (literally) OR ruining your soles – you know there’s a change in the weather. With it, comes a huge change in your fashion life too. Lighter clothes, less bulky shit to carry around.…

Black, brown, red, classic cut, vintage, trendy, over t-shirts or button-downs – Leather Jackets for men have long stopped being a trendy gimmick and became a sure staple to any guy out there, regardless of their affair with fashion. So the fact that each season inherently comes with its own array of menswear trends is pure blessing, cause the leather jackets make no exception. In fact, 2017 spring has a lot of…

Studio 54 Fashion: How To Get The Party Look Today?

Plunging necklines,  big hair, big jewellery, the sound of sequins and the sound of whisky and champagne glasses, a billion velvet jumpsuits, gorgeous fluid satin dresses with slits so high they make you dizzy, bodysuits worn as such, shorts so short they’re actually glittery knickers, fur resting on skinny slouchy shoulders, big bold heels, bare legs, bare nipples: welcome to Studio 54 fashion, aka the most coveted glamour ever. Between your job, and kids, or between uni and the struggle of single versus committed life, between laundry and a glass of wine in the most comfy socks you own – the slits and the champagne flowing is just your regular Tuesday night. I know. However, even us mortals and simple Susies out there love to scroll through a bit of weekend glam because go figure… a Friday night lived like a rockstar in your living-room…

There’s only one thing I love more than shopping. Online shopping. Like sitting in front of my laptop, with my fave coffee in my hand, and a massive weekly clothes crush under my belt: shopping spring dresses! Spring 2017 dresses belongs to Gucci girls, and Dolce and Gabbana styles with a bit of Alice + Olivia and Chloe. It’s all about super feminine frills and thrills kinda designs with a bit of…

Yes, fashion is supposed to be about originality and ‘showing off your personality’. But we can’t all be creative all the time and sometimes it’s just easier to look at a fashion magazine and copy the idea in real life. So, here are ideas for those lazy days – 9 outfits from Topshop’s latest spring campaign that deserve to be stolen. 1. Metallic jackets Topshop’s spring collection has a beautiful Metallic Hooded…

Spring 2017 Fashion Trends. What Colors To Wear This Spring?

2017 Spring Fashion Color Trends Blue or green, red or orange, white or black? In case you’re wondering (and even if you’re not) what spring 2017 fashion trends and color trends are hot, I will tell you: all of them! Is that great or what? On one hand it’s great because it’s a safe ticket to getting it right if you are a trendy person, but on the other hand if you’re more of a fashion headless chicken (did somebody call me or something?) well then… welcome to the hell of all hells, also known as ‘too many options’. Let’s take a moment now to get over the panic. If there’s one thing that could sum up my fashion life up to now it’d be black. All black. All the time. And sometimes, when I’d feel slightly adventurous I’d pop in a dash of white,…

Anyone who loves fashion, like we do, will come across a certain amount of fashion bloggers in their quest for the latest trends,  beauty secrets and couture fashion show highlights. Some of these bloggers are good, a few are great, but only a select few were so on point that they’ve turned their blogging persona into a brand and have launched successful fashion careers. These are the crème de la crème and…

As groundbreaking as it’s not, florals to spring are like sun to summer so let’s get off our high horses here and recognise the fuss free simple trends that will always be in, regardless of the fads that come and go. Right? When it comes to 2017 Spring, floral prints are more dramatic, busier, bigger, OR smaller and cheekier somehow. Resting on black or dark fabrics, or adorning pastel flowy dresses 2017…

Can we all agree that the 2017 Oscars were a bit awkward and not what we expected, hence the tons of opinions on the fashions, the winners, the losers, and the La La Land versus Moonlight situation/stunt? What the entire universe can agree on through is that the Oscars after-parties had celebrities looking much better than the actual red carpet. To a certain extent it’s understandable, they’re more relaxed, they just wanna…

2017 OSCARS Red Carpet: Best & Worst Dressed

Last night was one of the biggest and most eventful nights in Hollywood Oscars’s history. Viola Davis won her Oscar being the first black woman to win an Oscar, Emmy, and Tony award for acting.  Mahershala Ali won best supporting actor being the first muslim to win this award, La La Land won best picture. Oh, sorry, no, scratch that. It was Moonlight. That’s how it went down. Oh… and the red carpet seemed poor in ‘wow’s’ and stunning best dressed. I decided to not sugar coat anything. I’m already having major sweets craving, I don’t need such temptation in my life. So I will be direct and subjectively honest when it comes to 2017 Oscars red carpet. It was one of the worst red carpets. Yes, there were obviously best dressed actresses and those who were looked beyond amazing and stunning and my heart…

I got a call from my brother last week saying ‘So what was up at the Golden Globes, everyone showing their breasts?’ What? Did we watch the same red carpet, I wondered? For a brief second there I thought the universe was playing a time capsule joke on me, but then I realized he was referring to the very very very deep V-cuts and plunging necklines dresses the carped was filled with.…

This is not the military trend. I repeat, this is not the military trend. It resembles its army fashion sibling, but 2017 Spring KHAKI Trend is a more polished and more versatile version of the army looks we’ve done about 3 years ago, when the military trend was exactly what it said it’d be – army-like looks which incidentally had a lot of khaki clothes in it. The 2017 Spring KHAKI trend…

The Holy Trinity: 3 Accessories You Need Right Now

We all love things that come in threes, right? Men in three-piece suits. Cheese, tomato, and pepperoni on a pizza. Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Hmm… Destiny’s Child? The point is that three is a strong number, and this rule of awesome things coming in threes definitely applies to your accessories. Right now, we’re talking a fantastic trio of watch, necklace, and a pair of earrings (okay, that’s technically four things, but let’s quickly move on). These accessories can turn a good outfit into a great outfit – small touches that can complement your clothing in big ways. Bigger choices don’t always mean better, as often it’s simply about what works well with your chosen outfit. So, mix and match as much as you like, but just make sure you’ve got some good options to work with. And that’s why we’re here! Watches Let’s start with…

Reads title. Goes and gets red lipstick. Applies it on lips, eyelids, and cheeks. Takes a selfie. Goes out. #SheSaidItsATrend What?! Right? Right. That’s actually one way to do the monochromatic makeup trend of 2017. But maybe you go for a more natural lipstick color. Unless of course you’re a model in a fashion editorial. Back in the 80s, my mom was not a model, but she did use this lipstick trick…

Why do one post when you can do two, you know what I mean? Yesterday I was telling you about how rocknroll and 70s wild-child-wish-I-were-a-diva I felt for like a brief 20 minutes over the weekend when I wore Lorena Garoiu art on t-shirts pieces. What I didn’t tell you was that after my alter ego was done with the 70s situation (induced by this #LorenasTee) I too quickly slid into some…

#Lorena’sTees Part I: Rocknroll Baby

If I had a dollar for each time I switched fashion personalities and looks, I’d be filthy rich by now. While some days I’m all for luxe and glam, other days I’m a sporty ninja. You might see me one time in all black but then the next day I could be rocking a floral dress like I’m Miss Marry Fucking Poppins. Nevertheless one thing remains unchanged and never ever altered: my penchant for glamour, and my dressing to my moods. Give me heels and lipsticks, and makeup, and sexy vibes and I’ll take it any day and twice on Sunday. If needed with a grain of edge, grunge, or 70s rocknroll winter vibes, like the case of today’s post. A while back my friend and artist Lorena Garoiu – who I interviewed last year (read interview here) – gifted me with two t-shirts that…

Who needs a watch to tell time, when you’ve got a phone, right? Wrong. You actually need both but not to be excessively on time but to look excessively cool without any effort. How cheesy, I know. But hear me out. No matter how often trends will change and fashion will be more and more technological rather than pretty some things will never alter. The classic and timeless details that speak style…
