Holiday Gifts They Will LOVE!

I rarely do exclamation points, but when I do, damn I mean them. Holiday season is here and you may take that information as you wish, but however you take it, this year I promise you one thing: you will not be a headless chicken on a never-ending hopeless hunt for gifts. No-uh! What I hate about the whole process of holiday season gifting is how exhausting it is, when in fact it’s supposed to be this fun day, when you take your girlfriends out and you have a blast shopping, having brunch & coffees. But it becomes a nightmare cause we never know WHAT to get WHO, and we panic. What we forget is the essential – everybody loves 2 things: useful gifts, but fun & great looking. Good taste that is. I spent the entire morning drooling over the holiday gift shop at…

Wearable Technology Revolutionises The Fashion Industry

Fashion will be dominated by the growth of wearable technology in years to come. This is the opinion of both fashion and tech industry leaders. Everything from your suit to your shoes, your watch to your glasses will be smart. A 2014 report from Gartner projects that the sales of smart clothes could reach $4.97 billion in 2020, up from 2013’s minuscule $1 million. In other words, it’s just the beginning for the merger of fashion and technology. The First Foray Into Fashion When Google first released its Google Glass, many people were enthusiastic about the technology but were apprehensive of what the pair of glasses looked like. Some have attributed the wearable technology’s tepid sales to consumers’ views on its aesthetic value. The National Journal even published an article entitled “Yes, Google Glass is Ugly. So What?” Google is now working to revitalize the…

Trending: #TheUsProject & Why Clicking Together Is The New Trend?

(This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Soffe for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.) If I had a dime for every selfie I took I’d be spending big time now, shopping and living the good life. But that ain’t happening. Instead I am stuck with an Instagram of way too many selfies that do me no justice in regards to what they could say about my self esteem or lack thereof (not the case though. I chose selfies cause I’m the cheapest and most accessible photographer). Be that as it may… we are still the generation of selfies and THAT my friend could be more harmful rather than great. While we’re all aware of the ridiculousness and vanity these photos kinda hold, why do we keep on taking them? Perhaps we just want to capture moments. Plus a bit of show off. On…

Is GRANNY HAIR Really The #1 Hair Trend Right Now?

No, I did not just hit my head, nor am I writing this drunk. I’ve actually never been more serious, and sober for that matter. GREY HAIR is a thing these days, and GRANNY GLAM just became a massive hair trend in 2015. Whaaaaaaaaa?! Are we loving it ladies? Yes, we are. Why? First of all cause it looks fabulous and second of all, for everything it actually stands for. For decades fashion has been throwing beauty stereotypes our way all centred around the idea of youth, as if being young is a choice and there are tons of immortals and beautiful vampires out there to whose looks we’re all dying to aspire. To think youth is beauty is normal, but to limit beauty to this concept is ridiculous. Millions of women well beyond the age of 50 or 60 look more stunning than millions…

2015 OSCARS: Best & Worst Dressed

If the whole red carpet thing had been about nailing best and worst both in one look, a few of the actresses would have been in big trouble, I tell you. Not Marion Cotillard though. She did what I never thought could be done. She wore a dress so incredibly beautiful through its elegance and simplicity that I instantly said, right then and there, the very night of the Oscars 2015, ‘Dayum, she’s my favourite. Amen bitches!’ But then she turned. What in the name of God is that? A bow wrapped beneath her butt? Oh wait a minute, the haute couture diaper look is in. Ohhhh I get it. Tssk, tssk, tssk, shame on you. I mean me. Other than that I’m in a good mood today as I’m going through the photos and striving, YES striving for the last mean slash bitchy bone…

Trends Spotted At NYFW For 2015 Fall

After all this time, I still don’t know whether or not Fashion Month is the best or the worst of time in a fashion-person’s life. Of course it’s the best… but it’s also unbelievably hectic. Imagine the traveling to 4 fashion capitals in just one month, and attending so many shows, you lose count off, each show lasting up to 20 minutes, and then rushing over to God knows which borough to attend the next. All this… done in supposedly amazing clothes, yes, but also in freezing temps, in towns which you’re not too familiar with… only so that at the end of the day you gotta get your ass to your room and write, instagram, tweet… and so on. Work, while all is still fresh in your mind, and interest to the particular shows still aroused. Who am I kidding. Seriously. If you’re so…

When Streets Turn Into Catwalks! New York Fashion Week 2014 Fall.

This is a post on and for fashion addicts. Yes chicas this is STREET STYLE at New York Fashion Week. Cause why the hell not, right?I mean seriously if I see one more thing about the inherent holiday frenzy (yes Valentine’s Day, I’m looking at you) I swear I’ll turn sick. There’s only so much pink, reds, hearts, forced (or not) love, one can take. I know yesterday I was preaching this, but give a girl the right excuse and she’ll turn it into fashion. So anyway, on braking the routine of the quite predictable week (yes more Valentine’s Day posts are to follow. What?) why not give in into some ridiculously lustful extravagant, exaggerated, avatgarde, fashion frenzy the street styles at FWs hold? Ding. Though I haven’t yet seen all collections, I wonder if the trends on the streets match the ones preached by designers?Not for…

Why Do We Love Fashion Week Street Style So Much?

Seriously? Only an alien going around naked would not get this. FW street style is the ultimate expression of style, of clothes, creativity and lack of fear when donning the craziest thing ever. For the past week, New York streets are swirling with the coolest people, hipsters, bloggers, editors, photographers, writers, stylists, celebrities, models – who all have 2 things in common. 1. They adore fashion and 2. They own it out there style wise. It’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collections Time and fashion’s creme de la creme is in the Big Apple. Crazy colors, prints, mismatched trends or patters, textures, accessory abundance, crazy hair, makeup, vintage old wrinkled clothes alongside high-end brands, ripped jeans, posh heels or dirty old sneakers, caps, hats, bags, clutches… all adorn these hipsters and make us fashion-fantasize about clothes. Sometimes it’s the opulence of colors, textures, prints or designer brands that…

Let’s Talk Street Style At Fashion Week!

It sometimes feels as if our fashion existence is measured in FWs. D’ohhh. So now we are somewhere between catching our breaths from the Couture Shows, and working out butts off to get invites for the next FW that’s practically just around the corner. I mean London FW’s schedule was already announced so the crazy days are upon us. And they come with tons of work, travel aaaand girls’ biggest issue ever (in case you nail an invite) “What to wear?”. I’ll tell you something though, every time I look over these street style photos from any FW shows it seems to me as if I am the only one stressing over this what to wear matter, (and still not pulling it off majorly, if I were to come clean) – cause every single person in there seems to either not give a shit what…

Style Details That Count! How To Glam Up A Dull Look? Street Style At FW Inspiration…

OK so we all know the saying ‘The Devil is in the details’ and when discussing fashion it couldn’t be more true. Sometimes a tiny bit of color, a ring, a lipstick shade or statement a bag makes all the difference in an outfit and can turn a look from the most boring unnoticed one into the most glamorous, fashion forward or edgy one. As we quickly (and quite tired too) wrap yet another Fashion Month season – I AGAIN turn to the street styles spotted in the fashion capitals. Truth is, after watching all these shows and collections you can’t not get a bit bored with it all. It’s repetitive. Sure we’re all dying to see our fave designers but by the time Paris comes, I have to confess I’m a bit checking my watch rather than checking the catwalk. Thank God we’ve got…
