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…

#WhenItJustHappens

If you’d have told me that day would be one of the best, I’d have said you’d gone completely mad, with no respect whatsoever for my splitting hangover, and my ultimate level of laziness. I mean you can’t beat a Saturday lazy as fuck situation. Oh man, but you wooed me with that 60s music I was so into, and with those green eyes, and that smile. Goddamn. Also there was no food left in the fridge, and I was having my healthy moment crisis of no more pizza, so I decided to get my shit together, put my face on, and hit the farmer’s market with you,on our way to pick up your guitar from last night’s gig. It was windy, and warm, and cloudy, and I was wearing pastel (which I never am), and you felt inspired by the setting and my messy…

Bandage. Cream & Cappuccino.

Much like anything great in life – relationships, love, chemistry, friendship, fun, laziness, inspiration – you can’t force a great outfit. It just doesn’t happen. You’d think it only has to do with the actual clothes, but no. C’mon, even we are not that shallow. A great outfit is a perfect combo of what you’re wearing, with how you’re feeling, your details, state of mind, mood, great light, great hair day, great face day, et all. And also, you never want to waste a great #OOTD on a basic situation, right? Well I am bloody grateful I waited to drape myself in cappuccino and cream colours and let my body get hugged and loved by this amazing bandage dress. It was a good day. One of those perfect combos coming together. Or so I like to think. After a very brief and very fun previous…

#CloudyBudapest

And then he looked up from under his green eyes and said, ‘Hey kid, let’s go be wild cats this Saturday, sip wine out the bottle, live in expensive hotel rooms, and make some movie memories for when we’re grey and old.’  If I decided to sleep on my couch all weekend, wearing the same pjs, watching the best movies, and pigging out on massive amounts of pizzas, a.k.a. ‘Dear life, sitting this one out.’ – chances are the weather would be perfect: sun shining, perfect light, warm wind blowing, birds singing my fave tunes, people dancing all around, no clouds on my sky, but my head would be high. #rhymesalert You know like those Woody Allen films just before some character falls in love. So, around this time last November, Mr. FashionTag and I decided to finally do something with our lives, so we…

A Variety of Men’s Wedding Bands In Style Today

Wedding bands, at least where men are concerned, were never given much importance in the past. In fact, most men did not even wear a wedding band until as recently as just over one hundred years ago. Even then, most of the bands being worn were very simple and plain. Most men wore the same type of wedding band – a plain yellow gold band that did not make much of a statement at all. All of that has changed today as men have become more aware of the jewelry and accessories they wear and want something that stands out and looks great. Rings like men’s diamond wedding bands and other styles are much more in vogue today and there is a bigger selection than ever before. Go Traditional with a Twist You can still go with a traditional look if that is what you…

My Valentine’s Day WISHLIST

I swear sometimes it feels as if we literally jump from one festivity to another, and what follows on the list of parties, celebrations and fab outfits is none other than Valentine’s Day. Can I get a love song here? No? It’s fine. I’ve had so much alcohol and sleepless nights poured into me lately I’m doing just fine entertaining on my own. So many love songs playing in my head, so many candies waiting to be served, that the only thing missing at this point is… a fantastic dress. You know, something to slip my not-so-fab body into, before I go out and let the vices take over me. That’s the plan. We celebrate loooove, and for that we need some amazing looks to shop. To bedazzle our partners you know. No. It’s for us actually, the beautiful ladies who love fashion a little…

#AboutDecember

What? It’s winter already? Gosh how time flies when you’re having fun. Or growing older. I’ll take the latter these days, as I feel a bit of wiseness too rubbing off on me. The fun part, in my case happens by default, and this year’s been everything altogether, wrapped up in the most chaotic and neurotic bits. There was fun alright, but it was all the highs and the lows too. So what was high you might ask? Aside from my ego, and my head I was pretty lucky and blessed this year. Nawww. I’m not gonna get all cheesy on you right now and profess my love for 2015, and my promise to 2016 to be slimmer, and healthier, and not swear so much, and be a tamer version of myself. Nope. That ain’t gonna fucking happen. Because you see… I’m fire through and…
