What To Wear For Easter Sunday?

Before you go all WTF? on me right now, please note that this is not an Easter bunny, granny hats, frail dames’ gloves and tea sipping by the pond kinda post. No. I’m not gonna go all fashion proper on you right now. Having said that, if you’re planning on going full monty at this year’s Easter lunch/dinner thing, by all means, do so. Pull the plug on those suckers and flash it baby. If however, you’re feeling a slight discomfort at the thought of starring in the above picture, or if you’re actually facing the ever present predicament of what to wear for Easter Sunday, than this post is for you.If you’re planning a stay-at-home Easter holiday, well then, just stop reading and gloating. And please know that we’re not jealous you’re in your pajamas all day long relaxing and kicking it back. Whatever. While…

Florals & Stripes

When in doubt, practice what you preach. That’s what I thought when I was gifted by Persunmall with this amazing floral bomber jacket and super stylish striped blouse, and I found myself asking the ever daunting question of “How should I wear them?” ‘Question no more’, cried the fashion schizophrenic inside my head, ‘and just do the very first thing that pops into your mind’. Ha! I’d wear them both, at the same time. Both are trendy. Both I adore. Both are rocked separately and together by sartorial lovers all over the world wide web. And so I did, only to find myself at the end of a week of which I’ve practically lived in these 2 items worn separately as well as together, not just in love with them, but having a major epiphany: they’re my new staples. Why? Easy peasy. Cause they go with…

Is Coachella This Summer’s Fashion Preview?

Bra tops, ankle boots, sneakers, tropical prints, crop tops, hats, body jewellery, tousled hair and messy braids, weave knits, black, white, and nude outfits, long vests, lace, fringes, backpacks, tiny bags and fanny packs. Fuck me. It’s like the all year around existing trends had a conference and decided to meet up in the desert at Coachella. And they brought some new cool (once un-cool) kids to the party, like fanny packs?!! Massive ring noses (Kendall Jenner I’m looking at you). Off the shoulder tops and whatever was 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s cool, whether in-your-face as if you’ve just had a leap in time, or beautifully reinvented. There’s something about the dusty desert in that twilight red yellow light, best music playing, best friends by your side, drinks in one hand and outfits that go with your mood rather than a certain trend, a bit…

I’ll Have Spaghetti, Please!

Before you start drooling on yourself, STOP. This is not a food post, although it could be. No. If life has taught me one thing it’s that you can’t have the cake and eat it too. Or can you?! Can we have a ridiculously delicious dish of spaghetti and wear spaghetti straps as well? You know, those thin straps that look incredibly feminine and are ’90’s reminiscent on all possible cami styles whether tops or dresses? And more often than not requite skinny arms? Yeah. Those are the spaghetti suckers we’re talking about today. So if spaghetti straps are only thin & toned arms friendly, how the hell did they make a massive comeback? Am I missing something or is the whole world a walking model runway? Or maybe, we love fashion a bit too much, to care. Yes, I’ll go with this one, because you see,…

Cut-Out Booties For Spring

Just when I thought the 90’s were taking a back seat from the spotlight, they practically slapped me in the face with this grungy cool shoe trend. Okay, truth be told, the cut out bulky shoes are not a thing of the present. With a birth chart debuting back in the grunge era they’ve made their comeback in 2013 fall, but who can blame their impossible to sit-aside impulse, when everyone is channeling some heroine slash boho slash grunge babe of the 90s? Cut out booties a great trend make. They’re incredibly cool & sophisticated and look amazing with jeans, or flirty dresses and skirts for that 90’s look I was talking about. I mean back I the day I wore boots with just about anything. Like the worst fight I had with my parents was fashion linked cause I refused to give up my bulky…

The One Thing We Always Wear: Jewellery

So finally Friday’s here and after which seemed like the busiest week in history, and I thought of sharing with you some of my pics and outfits from during this week featuring Rings & Tings. You know, the brand I always collaborate with on jewellery, cause they’re kind enough to gift me with the most amazing pieces ever that really became pretty much my go-to things whatever I wear or wherever I go. And people just adore them! The compliments I got on most of these jewellery pieces are solid proof I’m not losing it, the power of great jewellery is there and it works. So this week I’m sharing with you 3 outfits featuring 3 jewellery pieces, of which well, most are statement. Why? Cause I cant help myself. I’m like a jewelley sucker I swear, the bigger the better, the brighter, the funkiest, the…

THE LOOK: Mirrored Sunglasses & Bright Lips

This is the shit. For 2014 summer, whether you’re heading off to some important meeting, having a fun day out in the sun, going to an event or the beach (okay, sans le red lips in this case) this look says it all: confident, chic, sartorial connoisseur not taking herself too seriously and just having fun. Nothing says 2014 cool summer like a pair of mirrored sunglasses, which are IN for quit some time, but never before have they made such a huge statement. So what is it about them that has women, of all ages and styles smitten with the wild rebel funky beach girl look, these glasses exude? They’re shiny. Colorful. And their lenses are practically mirrors. And they go with anything, even if they don’t, giving a certain youthfulness and coolness to a look. A bit of rave/funky/90’s disco-dancing queen meets cheeky teens…

Are WHITE BAGS Back In Style?

Or rather, were they ever not? When it comes to this crispy smooth soft creamy non-color – as much as I LOVE it during summer – I have never ever, ever had a white bag, nor have I ever ever had an urge to own one. Until now. I don’t even know if they’re back in fashion (I would presume so, given the hot season and how some things are always IN in summer or spring, whites anything being part of this lot) and frankly I couldn’t care less. Actually I’d prefer they weren’t, just so my self inflated ego feels great yet again at self proclaiming its person a trendsetter. As if. Moving on to more importante stuff, like how every month (okay week) I seem to have a new fashion crush (exhausting I tell you. It’s like having a severe case of fashion…

This Summer’s Hottest Shoes: The LACE-UP HEELS

Well… I’ll. Be. Darned. The fashion world finally came to its senses, climbing back on stilettos that is. 🙂 My Friday’s shoe related worry was simply tossed aside the moment it dawned on me that while sneakers and flats of all all sorts are having their moment, one style of heels is making up for all the heels in the world, and really stealing the spotlight. Comes to show you it only takes one sultry pair of shoes to make us ditch comfort over its counterpart. And who could have done it better than the LACE-UP Heels, which, in no less than 2 weeks have become the IT heeled sandals of 2014 Spring & Summer. Surprised? Clearly you haven’t seen them. These shoes are pure sex. With foreplay and all. They’re not only hot and all the adjectives that come with the new painted picture, but…

Are We Sick Of Heels?

Err cause you know, all the latest shoe trends seem to be about sneakers. Tennis shoes. High-tops. Kicks. Flat gladiator sandals, or flat ballet pumps. Loafers anyone? Whatever you wanna call them. In brights or whites, the flats are everywhere. And while I’m the last to complain (lately my age has been kicking in so I find myself choosing comfort over drop-dead-gorgeous-excruciating-shoe-pains more often than I’d like to admit) I still can’t shake the caps in my mind, WHY? Are we really sick of heels and glaming up or shaking it in sky high sexy mother fucker shoes? If it is so, then I suddenly feel as if fashion is playing a prank on us with this sporty trend that defines 2014 spring & summer. And whatever we do, it’ll be a win win situation for the sartorial world. Okay. Let me, let you in on…

Spring Is In The Air

So out with the old, and in with the new. And fresh. And light-er fabrics. Brighter colors. Funky prints. Or keep it simple and minimal, which too, alongside pastels is a massive trend this spring. And speaking of, we always go on about what trends to nail but if you had to invest in a few pieces each season, what would they be? Would you go for statement and in-season items? Or would you go for timeless, super classy ones, cause you know, trends come and go? Challenged embraced and research done, I’ve realized no matter what happens some things remain the same over time. Even in fashion. Quality. Brights, prints & light shades in spring. Skirts & dresses. And if you’re a funky sartorial lover then just consider them in statement pieces. If however you love clean & minimal cuts, sans le razzmatazz, okay then…

The SLIT Is Back!

With a vengeance. High & on skirts for 2014 spring & summer. Well, well, well, looks like Angelina Jolie’s dangling desperate skinny leg that escaped from underneath her long Versace gown at 2012 Oscars red carpet and had a moment all of its own, finally paid off. Angelina’s not the kind of woman to be out-staged by anyone, but her attention whore leg just slapped the shit out of this gorgeous lady and BAM! it was right there when we least expected it. Ha! You thought it did its thing and that was it. ‘Think again bitch’ said the Leg. For all this leg drama I blame THE SLIT. Yep. Were it not for that high thigh fabric cut we would’ve had less things to laugh about and less trends to inspire us. Or maybe not. The slit in both skirts and dresses has always been…

How About This Massive Trend: THICK BIG BOLD Eyebrows?

If the 90’s marked you in a few ways, then clearly you too plucked the shit out of your eyebrows in the hope of channeling Gwen Stefani or Kate Moss, when in fact we looked like crap. Surprised all the time. Older. And not prettier. Little did we know then how wise and crystal clear our vision would turn a few years later. FACT: thick eyebrows make a face look younger. That’s just how plain silly simple this eyebrow business is. The less you pluck and the more natural in size and shape you keep them, chances are they’ll frame your face better than any stylist or your own mastering eye slash hand could. I guess we had to 1st give the clown look a go only to realize that Brooke Shields was right all along. Sad part is though, fast forward a few years and if…
