Instagram Trends: FISHNETS

This is a mad world we live in, both IRL as well as on Instagram. Just to define fashion trends, par example, based on the two worlds is pretty insane. But why brush it under the rug, when in fact it’s the truth. Trends, and looks, and outfits are born not just IRL anymore (aka see someone on the street and start emulating the look, or read the papers on latest trends and browse the shops for things to fit the seasonal sartorial situation), BUT also online. Hello Instagram looks. And what looks great in one world may simply suck in another, and the other way around. Yes I am talking about the heavy contouring trend, the super made up eyebrows, that fake pout, the 1,209,847, 987 filters used on a face, the ubiquitous face features everyone’s striving to have naturally, OR not. Hate to…

Were it not for the little perks of winter – sartorial and holidays both – this season would not get a lot of likes had it had an Instagram profile. What is there to like? It’s cold, damp, hence the bad hair days and dry skin, it’s uncomfortable and gloomy. But it’s got great clothes, and hot chocolates, and cappuccinos served in cozy beds and cozy coffee shops, while wearing some autumn-winter…

Everything these days is relaxed: the jeans, the tops, the sweaters, the oversized jackets. It’s like we’ve said good bye to body hugging clothes, and skin tight anything and instead love the comfort and liberation of clothes that look good without making us look too-good if you know what I mean. THIS is true except for when it comes to the ankle boots of 2017. When all goes loose, the ankle boots…

Are Ugg Boots Trendy Again In 2017?

Safe to say the world is made up of two kinds of people: those who love and wear Uggs, and those who don’t. And then there’s me. The idiot who changes her sartorial mind more often than a teenager says ‘omg’. What is it about Uggs that leaves some appalled, some in a constant eye roll, some crazy in love still, and some in love behind closed doors? Is there an Ugg controversy, and if so – why? Cause they’re ugly? Since when has ugliness been a deal breaker in fashion? Mhhm. That didn’t sound right, did it? However it is. Hello Birkenstocks, and the ugly shoe trend that has been a massive fad for the past 2 years or so. So why are we so quick to dismiss Uggs while snapping #OOTD pics in Birkenstocks? #doublestandard The worst decade in fashion was none other…

While many people immediately take notice of the dress, shoes or jewellery that starlets and models happen to be wearing when they walk the red carpet and are seen on television, in magazines, or on the Internet, just as many people take a look at them in their close-ups to take a better look at their make-up and eyelashes. The eyelashes help to draw attention to the beauty and colour of your…

Most women love to shop and even call themselves shopaholics, but some men love to shop as well. In today’s world, there are all kinds of ways to go shopping and there are so many different things you can shop for from designer clothing to electronics to even restaurants. Shopping is just one of those things that we must do whether it is to buy food or other necessities. However, you may…

The TRACKSUIT Is Back: Between Kitsch & Cool

When Lacoste and other designers sent models down the runway for Fall 2016 in velour tracksuits, you knew fashion was up for a cheeky throwback. Add this sadistic but sorta fun venture to our obsession with activewear and sporty life (or just style), then to a marriage that ‘s the definition of kitsch: the 2000s + the ’80s, and you got yourself a very challenging 2016-2017 season, reigned by no other than the TRACKSUIT. (among others). These are crazy times my friends and I’m loving every minute of them. Why? Because I think every fashion lover has a hidden side that’s tickled by the thought of guilty pleasures and slight kitsch. Doing kitsch but looking cool is tres chic. And goddamn complicated. Whoever can master that is one for the books. Or maybe I’m just bored with the classics. Or maybe I’ve been brainwashed by…

Who in the world wants to run the world looking like a slob? (long awkward pause) Let’s begin today by assuming a lot of things ok? Like – you love Mondays, and can’t wait to wake up, and slip into the poshest outfit ever, which btw you never have to spend more than 5 min figuring out, and then you slide through town on your way to the best job ever, neverminding…

Since fall is here, and it is time to start dressing yourself a lot warmer with a lot more layers, you are probably planning to visit your local store to look for some new items for your wardrobe. But if you want to be stylish, well-dressed and be confident of looking fashion-forward, you need to read this short list of five fall essentials. Why? All of these items just have to be…

The CORSET Trend 2017: How To Wear It Without Looking Tacky?

There are trends that look great no matter what, and then there are the tricky motherfuckers that take a certain kinda person, trick, style, or razzmatazz to master. The sartorial-bitch side of me adores the latter. The amount of fashion critique we’ll have at our fingertips at the expense of the latter is pure heaven, and as cruel as that may sound eventually it will lead to greater styling ideas. And I mean that with all my heart. Nothing great ever came from anything too comfortable. So thank God for those occasional fashion faux pas. In case the title wasn’t betraying enough of today’s agenda – we are talking about one of 2016-2017 fall greatest trends – THE CORSET trend 2017. That piece of garment from the 1800s that constrained waists (and not only) and defined femininity. Good God. As time passed so did the…

When you spend your regular Tuesday online shopping and endlessly adding into carts you know you’re either one lazy motherfucker, or you have the best job ever. While this particular morning I feel more the former rather than the latter, I will however admit I’m a bit of both. If fashion and my passion for it have taught me anything it’s that when you’re in love with the sartorial art you splurge on…

When you are considering buying a piece of diamond jewelry, you already understand that this is an important and significant investment for you. Diamond jewelry, depending on exactly the type of stone that you choose any particular setting, can be very expensive and you want to make sure that you are getting the best quality possible when you make your purchase. With all of the different stores available today both online and…

Trend Alert: The Neck Scarf

If you didn’t know now you know: there’s a new way in town to wear your scarf and all you need is a penchant for choker slash chocking, and for scarves. So pick your lot and stick with it in this new scarf fad. Basically you need one skinny silk scarf that you tie tight around your neck one time, two times, three times (depends how long the scarf is, or how thick you want the scarf band around your neck to be), and that’s it… This is a bloody wake up call for everyone wearing silk scarves like they’re some bloody godmother slash godfather lookalike. But then again what do I know. I am extremely biased on this one as I’m part of the lot that doesn’t really fancy scarves of any kind. I prefer chokers, turtlenecks, or bare necks. But this new way…

Its tiny sibling better start counting its blessings. It is official: the fitted skinny leather jacket is gone and replaced by its sophisticated grown up classic sister the oversized leather jacket that has slung off celebs’, bloggers’, and all the who’s who’s of the sartorial world’s shoulders way too much lately for us to remain ignorant to its fashion statement. Ever since Kim Kardashian’s style has evolved more into slouchy oversized cuts…

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,…

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…

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…

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, &…

A Little Monday Throwback Never Hurt Nobody: #SummerFestival

Crazy times my friends. Juggling life, and work, and a bit of play in the the midst of fashion week. It don’t get anymore chaotic than this. I call it the headless chicken dance, I being the little chicken sans the head, and the dance being my daily life these days. It’s all good though, I’ve had some pretty good selfies over the weekend, worked out, ate bad but felt good about myself, even had a brief good hair moment there for about 30 minutes. Ya’ know. #s’allgood Remember when this summer I bombarded you guys with some posts from Sziget Festival? Yeah, this post and this post. Well… in case you liked them a lot, or you miss summer – I GOT MORE! This time though they’re more street style photos taken by my doll-pal Florina Ciupertea. I, and her are in there somewhere…

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…
