Why Wearing Glasses Is The Best Thing Ever?

glasses-trends-2015
Unless you’ve spent the last 3 years or so on Mars or Jupiter, whichever you fancy most, you gotta know the latest fad in town: GLASSES. Everyone who’s anyone is wearing glasses. Men and women with or without a fashion penchant  are falling for these accessories which are gracing our beautiful faces and noses sometimes more for style reasons than for necessity. Okay maybe not so much, but as a short-sighted girl, who wears glasses all the time, except for when I wear sunglasses (then I use contacts), I am telling you the world has changed a lot lately.… >> Read more

The PLAID SKIRT And Its Many Faces

office-look-tartan-skirt (5)
The more I think about this PLAID and TARTAN TREND the more I’m inclined to say it’s not really a trend, but mostly a staple. Don’t you agree? Its lifetime is pretty long and frankly seems to not fade away, so here we are in 2015 (almost) still doing the plaid look as if it’s the freshest thing out there. Who’s to blame? Only fashion and its cyclic behavior. Perhaps the lack of groundbreaking ideas as well.   But if you can’t marry the past, you’re nobody in fashion.… >> Read more

Winter Trend Alert: Oversized SCARVES

oversized-scarf-winter-look (8)
Don’t know if you remember that blog rant in which I went on, and on, and on about this early autumn’s big trend – blankets. Well… not to brag about it or anything, but they stuck. More so, they actually turned into quite a trend – hence today’s topic on oversized scarves. Okay, an observer does not a trendsetter make, I know that much, but just let me wallow in this thought for a while. OK. Done. I’m good now. The blankets trend with the capes and ponchos were not just a natural course fashion took once the cold season was upon us, but I dare say it had a lot to do with those LV blankets handsome men and boys were covered in at some Fashion Week one or two seasons ago.… >> Read more

5 COAT Styles For This Winter

tumblr_mw62lszK8V1rwelado1_500
The ONLY good thing about the cold weather is the variety of clothes you can wear. The layering you can play with. The coziness of all the sweaters, the bundling up with all the scarves and gloves and hats and what not. One thing everyone in winter is wearing, whether for style reasons or just cause we’re human and we’re cold is THE COAT.   Ah… personally I spend hours online shopping for great coat styles, making wishlists over wishlists on websites I’m in love with, like CHOIES for example, and I confess I’m down with almost any coat style.… >> Read more

What Do You Really Think About The MOM JEANS Trend?

mom-jeans-outfits (8)
Honestly now. How the ugliest and most unflattering jeans in the history of mankind have crawled back into fashion in the midst of 2014 beats the hell out of me. Unless we’re Cindy Crawford, Linda Evanghelista and the rest of those 80’s & 90’s supermodels, we’re pretty much fucked by this trend, which is lasting for a little over a year now. The mom jeans do nothing for us: the high waist is waaaay to high (it might as well cover our boobs), the pyramid cut of these pants is ridiculous (unless you want to channel your fashion icon Jerry Seinfeld), the fit is terrible (not tight enough for skinny jeans, not loose enough for boyfriend styles), and don’t even get me started on the bloody crotch.… >> Read more

Shopping Tips & Sales For Black Friday

tumblr_nf8oce0Zod1sxs4i0o1_500
When it comes to shopping and buying more, and more, and more clothes to perfect our everyday looks and nail the coolest style and trend we’re crushing over a certain week – we’ll take any excuse to shop. And if there’s a SALE… ding! ding! ding! Ka-ching! I’ll take it, thank you very much. You know I’m a fan of CHOIES brand mainly because I love the clothes, and the tons of styles and looks they cover, so when I saw their massive Sale for Black Friday I just had to share.… >> Read more

To Bra OR Not To Bra?

bf06183748f179d062ad4ad0e7d759f8
What the fashion world is doing to us women right now, is basically making it impossible for us to not bra. Okay, forget everything you ever knew about bras and their utility and think of them as the new fashion trend. Hmm. Of course we’d have to assume then, for the sake of calling bras trendy, that people… other than just us and our signification others get to see these bras. And that we, as wearers flaunt them, for them to be seen?!… >> Read more

Nude Diamond & Why I Fell In Love

nude-diamond-jewelry-style (5)
That jewelry has super powers is no question. Un-debatable . And if you haven’t experienced them, it’s either because you haven’t worn jewelry or you haven’t found the one piece to steal your heart. I, on the other hand, a total extremist on both sides (minimal & over-the-top) found love in way too many pieces in my life, and keep doing so over and over and over again. Still… Marilyn didn’t say ‘diamonds are a girl’s best friend‘ for nothing, so of course the moment I laid my eyes and hands on Nude Diamond pieces I was literally swept off my feet.… >> Read more

The Perks Of Wearing Hair Extensions

natural-hair-extensions-Uniwigs (2)
When it comes to fashion, style & beauty, one thing I’ve learned is to never say never. Up to last week my relationship with hair extensions was none. Complete strangers, BUT my wish for super long hair has been with me since ever, with the inherent irony that as much as I love long hair, I’ve never had it as long as I would have wanted it. Think Azealia Banks style. Why? Well, I’m inconsistent, I get bored, I get excited about haircuts, so I cut it so many times on a spur of a moment, only to later regret it.… >> Read more

Are All Men Growing Their Hair To Get Some… BUNS?

men-hairstyle-the-men-bun
Seems like lately the world evolves around one thing and one thing only: BUNS. If not in the form of booty, well then… as of lately in the form of MEN BUNS. Top knots. Muns. Hair! You get it? The world has been saved as a new men’s hairstyle is making the rounds and sucking up all the fashion and glory out there. Amen to that. We can now finally go on with our lives. Although to be honest I would have preferred the buns in discussion to be more on the side of boys and their toys.… >> Read more

The PENCIL Skirt & Why All Women Love It?

pencil-skirts-style (2)
There are trends. And then there are timeless styles. No matter the fads in town the latter will always have our hearts. Such is the case of the one skirt style that flatters every woman, that’s great for office as well as parties, or more formal gatherings. The PENCIL SKIRT. With autumn here hems and lengths are a bit longer, and we ditch the relaxed silhouettes of summer for more polished, structured and sophisticated cuts and style. For working women pencil skirts are the #1 office style staple.… >> Read more

How To Wear Body Chains All Year Round?

1
Or maybe I should’ve asked ‘WHY?’? When it comes to body chains – the #1 body jewelry trend for summer – I think there are three types of ladies. 1) Hate body chains altogether. 2) Love them and wear them. 3) Like them, but are skeptical about wearing one. Wearing body chains in summer makes a lot of sense, cause you can show them off either in your bathing suit or more revealing outfits: bare back tops, low cut blouses, crop tops, bustiers etc.… >> Read more

Major Autumn Trend For Girls & Boys: TURTLENECKS

1
Every year I say the same thing once autumn settles in: ‘never before have sweaters been so IN.’ Difference is, this year it’s actually true (Ha!). How so? Imagine all the sweaters styles in history, imagine all the hip designs that were once cool, imagine those granny chic cuts, those 90s crop ones, last year’s chunky and oversized styles. Now imagine you can wear any and look fab. Well, that’s what today’s sweater fashion is all about. With an extra adage to the whole lot.… >> Read more

Sweet November Style

SAMSUNG CSC
When it comes to having a sweet sartorial November you basically need two things: a warm autumn sun (checked) and your massive fashion obsession that moment (checked). Being quite a predictable gal, the latter is not that hard to guess in my case. Er… FAUX FUR! So here I am, again, standing in front of you all with my new style crush, which again involves the aforementioned 2014-2015 trend: this Two Tone Shaggy Faux Fur Coat from CHOIES. They’ve been so kind to gift me with it and with the fabulous Black Crochet Lace Short Sleeve Mesh T-shirt, which I’m practically in love with.… >> Read more

How To Make Casual Tops Look More Expensive?

street-style-basic-tops-looks
When it comes to fashion ONE thing will always remain true: It’s not what you wear, it’s HOW you wear it! And in fact a lot in fashion today has to do with having great taste and personal style. The rise of the effortlessly cool outfits, the urban glam, sporty-luxe looks are all results of the new style mesh that’s going on right now. The old with the new, the posh with the casual, the retail with the high end. They’re all coexisting, married in perfect harmony on the backs of the coolest and most savvy sartorials out there. … >> Read more

The WHITE Coat: YES Or NO?

white-coats-style (6)
”I’m dreaming of a white Christmas… “ Yeah, yeah, that’s great and all, we all wish a white Christmas, BUT what we really should be focusing on until Christmas is a certain sartorial choice, that just goes hand in hand with a white Christmas. A WHITE Coat. We’ve already established that pretty much everything is hot and hip these days, but each season there is one item that stands out. And this season belongs to wrap coats with the star being… (drumrolls please) the WHITE coat.… >> Read more

The Oversized BLAZER: Is There A Right Way To Wear It?

boyfriend-blazer-style-trend (6)
Apparently everything these days is about size. The bigger the better. Question mark. When it comes to fashion it seems more yes than no, with women’s looks borrowing pretty much all they can from menswear, with slouchy oversized silhouettes, 80s cuts and big bold frumpy coats, jackets and blazers. Blame it on the cycle of fashion, on women’s full plate with constantly being too polished or dressing too fitted, whatever the reason, the outcome is great. And while there’s nothing new and groundbreaking about a blazer, be it fitted, oversized, slouchy, or structured, talking about the blazer look and wearing one is still considered a trendy thing.… >> Read more

Hair Trends: What’s Hot & What’s Not In 2015?

hairstyles-trends-2015
Today we’re talking about the hottest new trends this fall is bringing us when it comes to hair styles. I’m plucking the latest hair styles and colors, straight from the runways and red carpets so that you can all look like stars in the season ahead. Best shades for this fall Freshly out of hair color ideas for this season? No problem, we’ll get that inspiration going, whether you’re into an all-over dye, subtle highlights or simply ombre. We’ll cover everything, from glossy chocolate brown Jourdan Dunn is currently flaunting, to chic honey highlights, property of Alexa Chung. … >> Read more

What If Everyone Had Access To OUTDOOR Advertising?

style-fashion
Before you go all ‘Who needs outdoor advertising when we’ve got social media’ on me right now (which is not far from the truth actually), think about one major thing Location, Location, Location. What if any of us could put our blogs’ logo, name and pics on a bus, like any Hollywood figure with a talk show or any film does for advertising? What if we could afford it? When 2 weeks ago I was contacted by a Los Angles company called ZEUSVISION about this form of advertising and sharing it with you, my readers, I must say I too was a tad skeptical.… >> Read more

4 Easy To Do HALLOWEEN Costumes

halloween-costume-ideas-lace-mask (4)
Well if it isn’t the time of the freak show again. And I’m loving every minute of it. Actually I’ve rarely donned a Halloween costume per se, but more like allowed myself to go over the top with some creepy or way too sexy items that I’d never wear otherwise: heavy costume style makeup, black lips, vampire fangs, long creepy nails (well in my case, it don’t have to be Halloween for that), cat ears, face masks, wigs et all. In other words easy peasy gimmicks you can do for Halloween if you’re 3 things: lazy (but still don’t wanna miss on the celebration), financially responsible (so you don’t want to over-spend) and 3) you still wanna look hot in that creepy cute sort of way. … >> Read more

2014 Fall Trend: FEATHERS!

feathers-trend-street-style (9)
If you didn’t know that birds of a feather, er… dress together, well now you do. The saying (sans les feathers) is so true for me and my birdy friends it’s scary. We go shopping together and more often than not end up buying the same clothes, each of us refusing to make a compromise will lie to herself that we’ll be careful as to not wear them at the same time when we’re together. We never do. That is, we never plan in advance to avoid the copycat sartorial predicament, so we do sometimes end up looking like slightly schitzy overly fashioned sisters.… >> Read more

Is It Really OK To Wear LEGGINGS As Pants?

leggings-styles (4)
If you’re gonna ask our male beloved friends, you’ll probably get a ‘Hell yeah!’ answer before you finish your question. I did. Just asked my husband. But since dressing and looking good or bad for them is NOT something we live for, nor strive to achieve… let’s leave the leggings as pants fantasy for them right where it’s at. In their fantasy world. Or it is too late? Have leggings become the new pants out there? Er… NO. Leggings are not pants, and if you’re wearing them as such, you’re pretty much asking for it, as somebody put it.… >> Read more

Wrist Candy: Why Everyone Should Wear WATCHES?

watches-trends-styles (12)
Let’s dodge the ‘doh’ with its inherent eye-roll for this one and genuinely admit to why we’re all loving a posh watch adoring our wrist. Some of us are obsessed with being on time. Everywhere. All. The. Time. Others love to be fashionably late, which is an excuse really for not being able to be on time, BUT can, at times, be acceptable if the ‘late’ part is fashionable. Read not TOO late. Or late for a good reason: er, getting all dressed up and fancy. … >> Read more

What Dresses To Wear In Autumn?

street-style-autumn-dresses
No matter how cold or hot it is, DRESSES are always a great idea. Easy to style, to dress up or down, to layer with great jackets in the cold season, to jazz them up with fabulous shoes, or make them casual and chic with comfortable soles. When it comes to dresses all is possible in terms of looks and outfits. I also happen to think a lot of the dresses we used to wear in summer can work in the cold season, especially autumn.… >> Read more

8 SWEATERS Styles To Wear This Fall

chunky-sweaters-street-style (3)
Something about autumn and how we dress makes this season, and us with it, look like a scene from our favorite film. Leaves on the ground, trees going to sleep, sun & rain altogether, windy cool weather, crispy mornings, heads tucked in collars, hands fidgeting in pockets, sipping hot drinks in bohemian artsy or posh bars, hot coffees to go on rushed cold mornings, and us starring in all these scenes, almost always wearing SWEATERS!  Whether trendy or not sweaters were always fall’s #1 staple. … >> Read more

Why We All Still ‘Love Sex & The City’?

sex-and-the-city-fashion (5)
Beyond the exquisite fashion awareness and love this show started, it stood and still stands for so much more: women’s status on all levels, sex, relationships, love, marriage, kids, freedom to be and act however the hell we please, mistakes, memories, friendships, breakups, shared moments, winning some, losing some. It all happened in the beautiful lives of these 4 women in NY, and in ours. All in fabulous outfits, amazing fashion moments, looks we copied and emulated over and over again. … >> Read more

Septum Rings: YES Or NO?

septum-rings-trend
The thing about me is I’m never one to shy away from anything. Disliking a trend par example has never stopped me from giving it a try, just cause I wanna know, on my own skin, in my own terms, what the fucking fuss is all about. It usually happens that after the road testing I’m converted to wearing it more than I’d like t admit. Or not. Depends. Still… when it comes to body mod, the trigger to doing it has got to be something more than the trend worthiness of it all.… >> Read more

How To Wear SHORTS In Autumn & Winter?

autumn-trend-denim-cutoffs-tights (11)
Or maybe I should have asked ‘How to look like off-duty models in the cold season?’ Cause it seems to me these girls have their well picked uniforms and fabulous effortless styles for all seasons, and in autumn and winter they’re all seen in their cut-off denims or leather shorts with chunky sweaters, leather jackets or coats, and biker or over-the-knee boots. And sometimes, when it’s freezing they’ll sport black sheer or opaque tights. Amazing, if you ask me. The SHORTS-in-the-cold-season look has definitely translated into a trend for the past couple of years, courtesy of these models and us as well.… >> Read more

2014 Autumn Trend: LONG Cardigans

long-cardigan-street-style (14)
Two weeks ago I was chatting over drinks with a friend of mine, basically bitching about how there is no more NEW in terms of trends for this cold season. Little did I know. I, again, had spoken too soon. It was right after that, that I took a stroll around the shops to see what’s hot and not out there. This weekend, on a gift-shopping-trip I noticed how retail is packed with LONG CARDIGANS for 2014 fall. Ta-daaaa! This hot look is nothing more than an extension of the KNIT trend, sweaters, and boho-chic styles that were, are, and will always be IN for autumn.… >> Read more

Autumn Look: Fur Vest & Sequins Sweater

SAMSUNG CSC
Well, well, well… what do you say, what do you know. Turns out I wasn’t that fashion unstable after all. When last week, I was picking your brains for faux fur vests outfits, I did have a fashion-crush-look which involved an all-black outfit AND stiletto sandals. By Saturday, 2 days later mind you, I stuck to my initial crush and done the look. In case you’re wondering whether or not I felt comfortable rocking a rather posh-evening-party-cocktail style in mid day, in full makeup face, fur vest, red lips, and stilettos… well… I was, for 2 reasons.… >> Read more

Is GREY The New Black This Fall?

fall-trend-2014-grey (18)
Nooooooooooooooo! (read it in a desperate, very desperate scream) although, to be honest no matter what the fashion gurus say, I’m sticking to my guns on this one, as I will probably be alone in my love for the dark color, clinging desperately to all black outfits, while everyone else is doing 50 shades of Grey. Sorry I couldn’t help myself. Well, at least I didn’t use the book reference in the title. Just the other day I was reading in Vogue, how GREY is a massive trend for 2014-2015 cold season, so I thought why not talk about this.… >> Read more

How Would You Wear A Fur Vest?

fur-vests-autumn-street-style (25)
If until recently my addiction was limited to rings, leather and black anything, I confess I’ve added one more item to the infamous list: FUR anything. Well… faux fur to be more specific and for 2014 fall FUR VESTS to be even more accurate. Although, who am I kidding here, give me a fur costume and I’ll probably end up living in it as well. So I’m extending this addiction to fur bags (massive trend alert for this season), fur collars, fur hats and of course fur coats.… >> Read more

2014 Fall Trend Alert: The WRAP COAT

wrap-coats-looks (9)
You know that feeling you have when you’re left out on something? As if you’ve been living obliviously happy in your own, apparently not-so-up-to-date- reality, while a whole lot of stuff has been happening around you. Well, thanks for the heads up you know. My dear Fashion friend. As I’ve tried, and tried, and tried, and then tried some more to find out what’s HOT out there in terms of trends for 2014 fall – other than the ones already being in rotation for the past 2 years – turns out the elephant in the room was staring right at me.… >> Read more

Sleeping With Fashion

fashion-blogging-bedroom-styles (2)
If you think bedrooms and fashion have nothing in common, well… you couldn’t be more wrong. In fact they go hand in hand, especially for fashion bloggers, artists, writers, jobs that give us the luxury to work from home on a few weekdays. It’s on those days that your home is your oasis, office, and inspiration haven, so making your little corner of lounging & working puuuuurfect is essential. Besides, having your coffee in bed while reading the morning news, doing your Social Media or Instagraming is the lazy girl’s guide to starting your day, as well as (let’s tell it like it is) quite a fashion/media trend.… >> Read more

The Overlined BOLD Lips Obsession

bold-dark-lips-makeup-trend (8)
It’s been two weeks since I’ve been dancing around this post and whether or not to do it, for two reasons: 1) I’ve already done so many lip posts here, here, and here, and 2) the world wide web is now packed with ‘How to get Kylie Jenner’s lips?’. But since being redundant and slightly monkey-see-money-do has never stopped me from anything, I figured why the hell not join on this over-penciled BOLD LIPS obsession and 2014 fall trend.  So here I am. … >> Read more

Fall 2014 Trend: The SWEATER Dress

fall-trends-sweater-dress (4)
Knits. Knits. Knits. The trend was all over the runway for 2014 fall. Groundbreaking right? Well certainly not, but very comforting to know that what us mortals have been wearing for centuries in autumn is in fact this season’s trend. Of course sweaters of all sorts have made the look each year, but head to toe knits? Or layered knitted tops & cardigans?! Err, somebody call grandma, tell her she’s been robbed of her Sunday fashion attire. Pardon my sarcasm here, but who can honestly say head to toe knits work on a daily basis, on people interacting with other people, out there in the world?… >> Read more

How To Wear LEATHER PANTS Anywhere?

Micah Gianneli_Jesse Maricic photographer_Controle Creatif_Micah
The redundancy of some trends may be annoying at some point, but then there are those trends we can never get enough of. No matter how much we keep on doing them. Over and over and over again, and still not enough you know. Such is the case of the Leather Pants Trend. In fact, long gone are the days when this trouser style was a bikers-only and rock-chick staple. Today, not only we’ve made it sporty-rock-office-casual-evening appropriate but also any season, any age, any style, any look appropriate.… >> Read more

The JACKETS Battle: Denim VS Leather

street-style-summer-denim-jackets (6)
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Autumn’s here, and were it not for all the websites and online mags preaching the arrival of fall with its sweater weather and ankle boots, I swear I would have still been in my bikinis oblivious of the rain and cooler temperatures. Right. So, since living in another season is not optional I too have decided to join in on the world wide web and, drumrolls please… talk about autumn and its looks, and fads, and trends and whatnot.… >> Read more

Office Looks: Black Trousers Don’t Have To Be Boring

street-style-black-pants-office-style (9)
It’s 8.45 am.  You’re running late to work. You’re still home. You start panicking. Buried under a pile of clothes, butt naked, without the slightest idea as to what to wear to work today. Sound familiar? What to do? What to wear? Shit. Shit. Shit. In a complete mental distress you end up picking the same pair of trousers as you did on Monday, and off you go. Usually it’s a pair of BLACK TROUSERS. You know, putting together outfits for work (if you’re into that) is much like going to the gym.… >> Read more

What A Girl Wants, What A Girl Needs

Oh, not too much, but what it is, better be real, you know. Let’s not get all feisty and life preaching here though. Not the time. Not the place. Not the mood, and frankly not the point. Well maybe a little bit sometimes. And since no question mark is pending on us let’s talk fashion, the obvious point of le conversation today. When it comes to fashion assuming girls want it all, and need it all is a pretty fair assumption.… >> Read more

How To Get The Textured Hair Look?

textured-hairstyle-menkoi-matte-wax (5)
You know the one, right? It’s the signature hairstyle of Kate Moss or Sienna Miller, half combed half tousled, but all the way effortless and sexy in that bed-hair kinda style. So how can you get this hair, without doing the bed-hair-thing, but actually washing it fresh & styling it in less than 20 minutes? No hair teasing required. Easy peasy. I’ve used MeNKOI products for both hair care as well as styling, and I… am ecstatic for finally nailing the textured hair thing without dehydrating my hair (no dry shampoo, no teasing) and making it look 100 years old.… >> Read more

Girls, How About We Live In Our DENIM Shirts?

denim-shirt-styles-autumn-looks (3)
Whenever I’ve got a blogger’s block I usually just choose the easy way out, and think about what my friends and I are always, always, like all the time, wearing. Both us girls, as well the the hot men by our sides. Er you’re welcome boys. And this morning it hit me: THE DENIM SHIRT. You’d think we were all auditioning for some cowboy part in a western flick every Friday or Saturday night, riding our horses to clubs, ‘sipping whiskey out the bottle not thinking bout tomorrow’, and spitting tobacco for intimidation, you know. … >> Read more

Goodbye Pants, Hello Thigh High BOOTS!?

how-to-wear-thigh-high-boots-2014-autumn (3)
‘Hi there, nice to meet you.’ said the Thigh High Boots. ‘Hi, but oh, we’ve met before,‘ I said. ‘Only like around this time each year for the past 3 years or so. It’s fine though. Maybe your Alzheimer or just plain rudeness are clear signs we should definitely change our relationship. Like spice it up, you know.’ ‘You mean make it more about me, and less about the others? In fact, this autumn I want it to be all about me.… >> Read more

How To Get THAT ’70’s Look This Fall?

70s-fashion-2014-inspiration (3)
What if… for one month, we could live in a movie scene of our own choice? Or even an era. A favorite moment snapshot in time. Dress, act, eat, drink, and mingle with the characters & real people of those scenes and times. Where would you go to? Is that Bianca Jagger lusciously hanging by Andy Warhol‘s neck, in her V-plunging high slit sequined dress and fur coat? Cigarette in one hand, smoke blowing out over half dozed black eyelashes, flirtatiously laughing at his non-existent jokes cause why the hell not.… >> Read more

Is The Denim Skirt Really Passe?

2014-skirts-denim-90s
Have you ever said something out loud with such conviction, that in the aftermath of the ‘brilliant’ affirmation, the people around you, and you included, had that wtf-should-I-laugh-now-or-act-surprised-or-just-ignore look on their faces? That’s the moment when you wish you’d just kept your mouth shut. NO. I’m not gonna go all therapy on you right now. The issue in discussion is none other than the trend-worthiness of the DENIM SKIRT. No life and death drama. Just fashion talk. And so the story goes: last Saturday before going out for a drink, from my friend’s place where us girls met earlier for other drinks (okay and dinner too), my friend Julie wanted to borrow a pair of shorts or a skirt from our other friend, who, in a very genuine and now-I-realize-quite-well-deserved excitement, offered her a short denim skirt.… >> Read more

So BLANKETS Are The New Street Style Thing?

2
In the short 2 weeks time I’ve been away living a bohemian gypsy lifestyle, barefooted & careless, apparently the posh ladies over in the big cities decided to transition to fall with one massive piece to keep them warm: the blanket. Or maybe they’re/we’re just too hung up on the laziness and coziness of our beds every single morning, so we instead decided to take it all with us. After all, not too long go pajamas were a thing. For daytime.… >> Read more

The Many Ways To Wear A ROMPER!

There are those trends you just hate. Those that are meh. Those you just wanna sit out. And those everyone loves, that come natural. These last ones are the best. And the ROMPER is definitely one of 2014 summer’s massive hit not in a ‘wtf’-kinda-way, but in a very doh, it’s so cute and summer’ish of course it’s the LOOK of the hot season kinda way. The only bad thing about the jumpsuit’s little sister – the romper – is that it only works for the hot season, so with August still here, and praying September will be more like summer than autumn, why don’t we use the shit out of the romper while we can.… >> Read more

Round And Round And Round We Go, Baby!

This is not a dance (although we could make it), nor a talk on the complicated circles of life in general, with its mundane rat races. No. This is a very laid back and fun chat about ROUND SUNGLASSES! Why? Well… first of all cause I’m on holiday and beach attire is mainly the only thing on my mind, and second because I just figured we’d better talk shades, since they’re the #1 all-year-round-accessory, and get to the bottom of why round sunglasses are so coveted right now.… >> Read more

The ’90’s BANDANAS: Should We Bring Them Back To 2014?

Who could possibly forget those black, white, red, dark blue, sometimes even green little scarves with black-tattoo-resembling-motifs on them that we all used to wear back in the day, whether wrapped around our heads, in an attempt to channel either Axl Rose or Tupac, or wore them as the perfect pull-together-your-outfit-cool-accessory when wrapped around our wrists, necks, or tied on our school backpacks. BANDANAS! They were the one thing I never EVER left the house without in the 90s. EVER. And when I  lost one in a taxi, I was devastated for weeks. … >> Read more

6 Looks To Do On Your Summer Holiday

The best part of our summer holidays, apart from getting to the exotic destinations & the relaxing time in the sun, is definitely the fashion that comes with it. Getting ready, packing tons of summer clothes, outfits, bikinis, shoes, bags, beach towels… ah! Sure, the moment we get there – to wherever we’re gonna lounge for days and days in the sun – we end up wearing pretty much the same things, as we get in the holiday mood and basically can’t be bothered with cool outfits anymore. … >> Read more

What Do You Think About The UGLY SHOES Trend?

Why is it that we always want what we can’t have? And what we can’t have is always so much more enticing & appealing than the opposite? That’s me when it comes to the UGLY SHOES trend. Hell that’s even fashion and life in general, but today we focus on the trend that brought tourists’ ugly Teva sandals, velcro strapped shoes, pool-side-like-flip-flips, chunky soles and horrific unsexy shoes  from the underground of not-even-fashion to the freaking runways. How in the name of God have we managed to go ballistic over the ugliest shoes in the history of fashion?… >> Read more

Let’s Talk BODYSUITS!

I was about to start off with a YAY! in regards to the BODYSUIT apparently making a comeback, and kicking crop tops right off their front seats with their On-Trend’iness. But then it hit me: (1) as silly as it may sound – aren’t bodysuits less forgiving than some crop tops for example, and ALL tops for that matter? They’re basically one-piece swimsuits for the streets. BTW, who’d even know you’re wearing one or the other? Anyway. Moving on to (2) does the return of the early 90s, late 80s bodysuit imply the death of crop tops? … >> Read more

All Sorts Of SHORTS

Just the other day a woman asked me (a complete stranger practically. Yeah I see her everyday when I go grocery shopping, but that’s not the point) - ”Oh, honey, why you always in jeans, cutoffs or dresses? Why don’t you wear beautiful shorts?” WTF. What does that even mean? This coming from a woman who’s well over 40 draped in cheap rhinestones like an over-tinseled Christmas tree. I replied nothing, just a fake smile that was literally throwing all the angry emojis as her.… >> Read more

Let’s Play Rainbow HAIR!

For some of us, the pink, lavender, blue, green hair trend is just a fad we come across on our Social Media over coffee. Who’s pink right now? Who’s going blue or green? And do we like it or not. We could’t possibly do this look  for job reasons, lacking balls, or maybe just  not-feeling-it-enough. For the other half of us, the Rainbow Hair Trend is just like ripped jeans for example. Been there done that. The question is, which half do you belong to? … >> Read more

Are HIGH WAISTED JEANS The Best Style Ever?

After turning my 2 pairs of high waisted denims into a uniform for the past month, I am totally sold on this look, hence my biased fashion take on the high waisted trend: Keep ‘em coming! Of course this style is everything you want and need in a look, sans the groundbreaking trait. They’ve been HOT in the 80’s, 90’s and, after a short break, what with the low waisted jeans and all, they’re back in fashion for sometime. From those mom-jeans styles, to cool boyfriend cuts, to skinny jeans, the denims all have one major thing in common: a higher waist than we’d ever thought we’d wear.… >> Read more

Why The MAXI Dress Became A Staple?

Rewind a few years, say circa early 2000 and the absence of the day-time maxi dress will strike you. Unless there was an event to attend or some posh gathering, wearing a maxi dress was a safe ticket to a social eyebrow raising followed by a wtf. Or, maybe I was just absent from the world back then, and bared too little knowledge of what was in and out at that time. Which is fine I guess. Who cares what was hip in the past or not (only the entire fashion world).… >> Read more

Should We Bring SUSPENDERS Back?

Girls and boys, hate all you want but, my impulse on this one is to scream a big NO, unless of course you’re a hot man, with a full beard, tats and fantastic style. Then… I might reconsider. Just saying you know. Or, if you go less for the suspenders per se, and more for the harness look, as shown by designers a few years ago. McQueen, Versace, Prabal, Alexander Wang all went S&M on us with their versions of suspenders: wrapped around naked or not-so-naked bodies, rocked at Fashion Weeks by the cool fearless kids, resembling porn scenes more, rather than street style.… >> Read more

Why Is Everyone Obsessed With Sneakers?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, you’re probably aware of everyone’s latest fashion craze: THE SNEAKERS! Why the obsession? Cause fashion today is about having fun, looking chic & sophisticated rather than too polished. Hence the sneakers’ ubiquity & everyone’s love affair with them. I too am guilty of the sartorial fad, so when I was gifted with  pair of New Balance Sneakers from SCORPION SHOES I was ecstatic. They’re an independent footwear retailer from Camden, London, and I can honestly say their collection of shoes, which are for both men AND women, are my kinda guilty pleasure.… >> Read more

Do We Still Like OVERALLS?

Hey, the farmers of the world called. They want their clothes back. Or at least credit for the rise of a trend, you know what I mean. Until that happens (let’s not hold our breath for it, though) we’re left with taking credit for all the ‘cool-hipster’ looks we’re putting together, courtesy of the OVERALLS, since 2013. That’s when the denim overalls had their 15 minutes of fame.  I’d have honestly guessed we’ve had it by now with this look, as last year, every.single.… >> Read more

Are Mermaid Wedding Dresses A Trend?

Not to sound like a self-absorbed, shallow, obsessed by fashion to the point of dementia bitch, but… when it comes to the wedding day, sure, the venue, flowers, menu matter, the perfection of the groom + families reunited into terrifying we’ve-got-to-be-happy-all-night-long state of mind, matter too, but one thing will top it all… the WEDDING DRESS. Hello! Jokes aside, of course it all matters, but in my case I knew if I had the right dress it would all fall perfectly into place.… >> Read more

The SLIP Dress: YES Or NO?

If Kate Moss got a nickle for every time  she wore a slip dress in the 90s, and later on throughout her posh life, she’d be a millionaire. Oh wait. She did. And I’m guessing she is. A millionaire. Not necessarily cause of the slip dress, but she did make it famous back in the day. And since everything today has got something to do with the 90s (for the love of GOD!) the slip dress too was bound to make its major comeback.… >> Read more
