2012 Grunge Trend. Are The ’90s Back?

modern grunge
I’ve been meaning to do a post on the ’90s revival in fashion and style for some time now, but today, coming across a Johnny Depp video gave me just the right boost & mood I needed to write this. Yes, he was the king of grunge! Still is if you ask me, though today he’s sporting his grunge style with a bohemian-gypsy-intellectual twist to it. He is a bit to be blamed for this ‘90s revival in fashion and style, don’t you think so?… >> Read more

Star Style. Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey
The so called ‘America Dream’ fashion trend or as some call it the ‘Americana Current‘ of 2012 has a lot to owe to Lana Del Rey if you ask me. Regardless of me being a fan of her music and style (which yes I do confess I hopelessly adore) lately I’ve seen a lot of new fashion editorials that steal or should I say borrow a bit of Lana Del Rey’s ‘Gangster Nancy Sinatra’ and ‘Lolita got lost in the hood’ looks.… >> Read more

2012 Jewelry Crush. Bracelets – Styles & Celebrities

Gold Bracelets
Remember Marilyn’s famous statement ‘Diamond are  a girl’s best friend’? If I come to think of it (not diamonds per se) jewelry does make us girls quite happy. A great piece of jewelry ads drama, edge, elegance, refinement… Right now I am quite into bracelets and I think the more the better! I prefer big bold, statement jewelry as a rule so it comes with no exception in bracelets. Bracelets can make an ordinary gesture of speaking with your hands seem so stylish, dramatic, trendy and more to the point.… >> Read more
