#OOTD: Suicide Squad Jacket

If you’re a fan of the latest cult film – Suicide Squad – this post is for you. If you’re also constantly torn between 2 jackets (colours) this too is a post you will love, cause like nothing else out there the jacket I’m wearing today caters to two loves. In this case wearing both a red and a blue jacket. Perfection. It was only after this Sunday when I wore my new Suicide Squad jacket from Celebsclothing that I actually realised I kinda love blue. First time ever in my life I’ve had a blue crush. With autumn almost here it’s as clear as a blue blue sky that we’ll be needing some jackets to hang around our shoulders more often than not. 2016 Autumn comes with a few looks and trends that this jacket nails: bomber inspired, statement, pop-culture, reminiscent of 80s-borderline-90s, tells…

Psychedelia.

For a person who’s cup of tea is not made up of too psychedelic things and closed spaces and weird lights and surreal surroundings in that very claustrophobic way – that day we spent at the Luminarium at Sziget Festival was not too bad. In fact, what had started as a long line of people, followed by a first feeling of claustrophobia (hello maze + coloured lights that can mess with your mind and vision if you’re prone to closed spaces) ended up being a very interesting (for lack of better word) experience. Could have had something to do with us turning it all into a tiny photoshoot?! Read those bloody egocentric bastards who’ve got a too big head fro them to carry and gotta make it all about themselves. Right. It was two Saturdays ago when Muse took the Main Stage at Sziget Festival,…

Sziget Festival: Passport To Fun & Fashion

While it lasted it was fun yet incredibly overwhelming, music, fashion, all-around-vibes wise. Now that it’s gone… I kinda miss it. That’s the thing you see about music festivals – they creep and crawl under your skin, until you realise you’re actually a rascal with a penchant for comfort. And if you love the music, the fashion, and the beautiful people, you’re doomed to enjoy the festival, to get slightly overwhelmed by the crowd, and miss the chaos of it all once it’s over. Testimony of it all are the tons of photos we took, the blisters on my feet, the flu I’m still fighting (and hope to win this week), the new music crushes, the inherent music disappointments (yes Rihanna I’m looking at you), and the old flame that’s still burning hot (Skin my love). Today’s post is from August 12 at Sziget, the…

#Turquoise

Once upon a time (aka about 3 weeks ago) I wore all white (rare case scenario) and stumbled upon some turquoise background in the middle of the city (rare situation as well.) Unfortunately it wasn’t the ocean, but when life gives you lemons you fucking make lemonade. Or mojitos. On that day I had my face on, my empowering lips (dark seems to be my go-to colour when all else fails) AND my dainty necklaces from Starharvest Jewellery.  Although my look is rather strong with a dash of 90s reminiscence as my photographer likes to say, I thought the dainty pieces make a fab contrast. Also they’re golden, like hello!!! they go with anything. Why I LOVE them? Cause they’re fab looking, they’re very delicate, great quality, and YES the ring/choker one is my fave. The layered one is a great understated statement (if you…

The BLOWOUT Is Back!

Luscious glam hair, freshly coifed, freshly washed and dried, commercial hair, model hair, big hair don’t care – THIS is the new hairstyle trend of 2016. The BLOWOUT hairstyle is back ladies, and I wonder if that means we’re embracing the glam glowing locks look all the way, ready to ditch the slept-in-bed-sex-hair for good? Or is this just a look that goes hand in hand with all the others? Side note: I’m really scared but also kinda excited of the fear we’re dangerously getting closer to 80s kitsch. If *that* perm hair comes back I’m done. Things could be worse though. We could do 2000s all over again. So the perfect supermodel hair is BACK. If only I had perfect hair I’d love this hairstyle trend. But I don’t, so for me the messy hair, the salty beach waves look, the slept in look…

Silver Love.

There are gold people and then there are silver people. I am certainly the former, but every now and then I’ll take a dip into the silver team and actually truly enjoy it. Such was the situation a month ago when I decided to drape myself in blue (again not a very seldom drive in my case) and wear the silver pearl set I got from Star Harvest Jewellery.  They’ve been so kind to gift me this silver set and 2 more golden pieces that I’ll show you in a future blogpost, that I feel incredibly blessed. Their brand is solely focused on quality jewellery pieces, all perfect designed silver, with classic or more edgy cuts depending on your style. Their shop is really packed with the most fab items. The shipping is fast and the wrapping of the jewellery is beyond fantastic, so their…

The Perfect Jacket!

They said 2016 is all about oversized jackets and new sartorial crushes, aka ‘can we please try a little harder than the already too-worn leather jacket?! Thank you.’ My prayers were answered – a jacket that has it all, but it’s not leather – has arrived. Actually it’s got superpowers, and tons of swag, and versatility, and I can sometimes wear it to the gym, and sometimes to work, and sometimes for meetings when I pair it with uber posh outfits. It’s sporty and casual, with a retro-college reminiscence that gives it incredible sophistication when I pair it with smarter outfits. My Captain America Varsity Jacket is officially my fave item in the world, and to be honest with you it’s my favourite jacket so far. I love that it’s slightly oversized, I got it in size M, which means two things. (1) It makes me…

Classic & Luxe

There are dresses, and then there are DRESSES. When it comes to CECILY dresses – my favourite dresses brand for office & events – that’s how I cut a long story short. And trust me this is coming from a woman whose eyes wander more often than not over to edgier and sometimes more extravagant pieces. But, if my age and sartorial adventures have taught me anything it’s that sometimes classic and luxurious are winning tickets. You can never, in a million years beat a classic cut dress, perfect for office or even some more formal events. Sure, you can give it a slight edge and twist and make it your own, but it remains a classic one. So I take my hat off to Cecily dresses for this. They really deliver to the perfect clean cut and refined look that women want in a dress. They understand…

#REDasmyheart: Statement Look In Two Piece Dress

That I’m as quick tempered as a storm, and fiery as fire can get is no surprise, so there is really no wow factor to the fact that I feel at my mostest when draped in red. Yeah, yeah I know, what a cliche. But when I’m wearing red and a gorgeous dress like the one in this post I’m again walking as if Beyonce and I are singing “I’m a grown woman, I can do whatever I want.” Damn right. And we strut. We don’t walk. I’ve been dying to wear this dress for a long time and let me just say that the wait was totally worth it. It’s a two-piece dress that is insanely sexy AND comfortable (yes, that is possible), it’s perfect for more va-va-voom occasions when you want to make a statement, but don’t wanna go all out you know.…

Name Necklaces: The One Thing I Always Have On

Right about the time ‘Sex And The City’ was breaking through and Carrie was causing commotions with her looks and her beautiful name necklace, that’s right about the same time I started coveting her style AND decided that all I ever wanted was a name necklace of my own. Forward a few years later (okay, tones of years later) and ta-daaa! my wish not only came true, but I was happy it did. Cause you know sometimes you think you want something up until you actually get it, and then you realise you don’t want it anymore. Yeah, not the case here, hence the title. My wish came true courtesy of Onecklace – my favourite jewellery and name necklace brand in the world. These guys rock. They are insane. The best quality in the world, everything’s gold or silver plated, the designs are amazing, the…
