6 KNIT Fashion Pieces To Wear This Autumn!

If you’ve ever felt both ecstatic and miserable at the same time, about the same thing – relax. You are not insane. Chances are you’re a hardcore sartorial stepping into the cold gloomy season, hence you’re sad when faced with the horrendous cold and gloomy weather, BUT happy to drown into amazing outfits and layers of beautiful clothes. Should we cut off the fucking drama? It’s only seasons changing after all. Yes, rain is upon us, and so is the cold, and low temperatures, the bloody wind, and our sad goodbyes to pretty toes in pretty sandals. But with this apparent nightmare we welcome a beautiful sartorial heaven made up of coats, and boots, sweaters, and hats, and scarves. And while I can’t really stand the latter, I adore KNITS. The good news is you’ve already got them: knitted sweaters, cardigans, tops, dresses. The second…

Are NUDE SNEAKERS The New Thing?

If you think I’m sartorially deranged, you’re right. It was just yesterday that I revealed a bit of trend-resentment, and here I am today professing my love for a new trend in town: the NUDE SNEAKERS. Yaaasss! Nude everything is a massive obsession this year, from makeup, to nails, to those bodycon midi dresses, to stilettos, bags, coffee, sheets we sleep in, chairs we sit in, leggings, and everything you can possibly imagine. So it was quite easy for Madame Le Fashion to put 2 and 2 together and give us the shoes that ain’t going nowhere – SNEAKERS – and the colour we’re literally draping ourselves in -NUDE. Must be our obsession with bday suits as well, huh? Whatever. How to wear nude sneakers? Contrary to the word implying workout I think the nude sneakers look is more a street style kinda trend, rather…

13 Trends That Are So Over In 2016

I am as amazed as you are by my urge to write this post, trust me. Considering we live in the time of all is in and whatever you want to wear is okay this post sounds a bit off, doesn’t it? Actually I think not. I have indeed slightly feared going into this topic, cause seriously what the fuck do I know, and except for a few trends out there, most of my 13 infamous list is pretty subjective. Shockingly. But some looks aka trends I really think have been did & done and we gotta move on. I know, I know it’s such a big issue (moving on) in life in general, but in fashion it’ll all comeback. Frankly I ain’t ready myself to let go of some of these trends, but killing them is also a sartorial and creative challenge. OR, in…

The Best Collections At Milan Fashion Week 2017

This is why I LOVE what I do. Milan Fashion Week 2017 Spring/Summer was beyond amazing, pure fashion, art, glamour, and edginess. Yes I tend to bitch and whine a little bit around FW, but truth is there’s this incredible pleasure in watching all the collections and immersing yourself into the sartorial world of next season while fashion literally unfolds in front of you and you pick up new trends, looks, & inspiration for current and future seasons. Sure, some designers stuck to their legacy and what we always expect of them – like Armani par example (greys & blues, black tones, understated glamour, a lot of shorts, and more casual cut of the blazer) – but others were a magnificent surprise, like Versace. Donatella outdid herself with the SS2017 collection, and I truly feel that ALL designers at Milan FW were more courageous and…

9 Weekend-OUTFIT Ideas For Fall

As much of a sartorial lover I may be, the way I see it one thing will forever remain unchanged: there are three types of weekends. 1) The stay in bed-pyjama weekend, where you’re lucky if you have the energy to shower. This is usually accompanied by tons of pizza, a state of fuck off mood, and a hangover. You do not, ever, on such days give a shit about what you wear. But in case you do, here’s a post on chic loungewear so you can have a posh headache and all. 2) The stay in bed-birthday-suit weekend. At this point you’re fucking more than fashion. If y’all need explaining you’re far too innocent or young for this. Please click away. 3) The busy weekend where you decide to go shopping, go to the farmer’s market, hang out for lunch or brunch with friends,…

Special Dresses For Special Occasions

When you hit a certain age the special occasion term gets some new meaning, and you tend to cater more to the lazy Sunday in front of the TV, or binge watching on a Saturday rather than having shots on a Friday. Just kidding. Actually yes and no. It tends to fluctuate you know. But since the term special occasion has yet to change its general meaning, we are stuck in a somewhat labeled from of dressing, which of course excludes pyjamas or birthday suits. So depending on what your agenda has in store for you on weekend evening – special occasion wise – you will probably have to consider outfits for either weddings, club/dancing night, red-carpet inspired events, cocktails, dancing dinners, dates, and so on. What to wear on such special occasions? Anything that floats your boat really, cause as long as you wear…

2016 Trend Alert: BIG Sleeves

You know that ‘Seinfeld’ episode when Jerry was terrified he had to wear the puffy shirt live on tv. Cause it was ridiculous. Little did he, or us, knew the day would come when such style shirts would not only be acceptable but coveted. 2016 Spring/Summer is all about the massive huge sleeves. Whether they’re mutton, pirate inspired, ruffled, long, oversized, big, massive and all the related synonyms your mind can grasp  – they’re in. I think it all kinda goes with our daily drama. I mean they perfectly fit into my routine, when I get all dramatic and talk with my hands, those sleeves – touching the ground, chaotically following my line of thought (I mean hands), beautifully complimented by bracelets or rings and the phone that’s always in my hand – they mean something. I really think we’re onto something here. Can we…

Retro Dresses: 3 Styles To Shop & Rock

Must be all the past-inspired series I’m watching, or my 60’s and 70’s music obsession but, like never before, I’m exploring new sartorial waters, and I’m loving every minute of it. Who knew, I – a woman so plugged in into what’s hot and what’s not – could find such style pleasure in retro inspired looks? I’m not yet fully converted, and I’m still quite fond of my strong opinionated self – so I know too well what I love and what I don’t retro wise. Even so, half-way in or not, I’m pretty fascinated and slowly falling for three retro looks, all of which can be easely achieved with dresses.  Online shopping and browsing is another obsession and work skill of mine, so when looking for retro affordable dresses to start polishing my retro #OOTDs I went to Sammy Dress the online hub you…

Beyonce Does Lemonade, We Do YELLOW.

So Could Yellow-Mellow Be A Trend This Summer? Okay ladies and gents pour yourselves a lemonade and let’s talk about it. Beyonce, aka Queen Bee (yellow alert #1) has recently killed it with her 1h visual masterpiece ‘Lemonade’ (yellow alert #2), in which she talks and sings about the most important issues for her and for women all over the world, AND in which she is also killing it fashion wise. To be more precise Bey is pure magic, and strength, and beauty, and power, and unbelievable sexy empowerment in her yellow 70s inspired dress. Oh. My. God. (yellow alert #3). As much as I’d love to sip on yellow lemonade with y’all, after having watched and listened to Lemonade, so that we can now talk about all the Lemonade issues, I can’t. I’m such a buzzkill right now, but I haven’t watched it. It’s…
