Fashion Gets Military With Army Jackets!

With all the trends swirling around us like crazy there seems to be a general movement that makes it all happen. Style Clashing is the big thing now that embodies it all: from prints to chunky jewellery to lace, to evening skirts and heavy boots. If the ’80s were all about broad shoulders, bad make-up and big hair and the ’90s about grunge, the 2000s are about clashing styles. Wear your snickers with a feminine fancy dress, or your boots with an evening gown. Wear delicate pieces with heavy metal chunky jewellery. In this new fashion revolution the Army Jacket takes a comfortable position and announces its huge comeback for Autumn 2012. The Army Jacket was quite a big hit in the ’90s (I remember fighting with my brother over an old/vintage army coat that must’ve belonged to our father) and then Olivia Palermo was rocking it on the…

Mr. Brainwash Meets Kate Moss In Oxford Street Mural

Apparently Kate Moss has got all artists wrapped up around her fingers & lust struck over her. Can you blame them? ‘The Heroin Chick’ as she was so often regarded in the fashion world is quite an empowering woman.  At 38 she’s still scoring beauty & fashion campaigns. She still runs the runways and gives birth to Art Trends. If the world of art is bound to clash into the world of fashion who better to set the tone and stand as inspiration than Kate Moss? Two days ago Kate’s bright mural popped up on Oxford Street in London to announce & promote the début of  The London Exhibition of eccentric French street artist Thierry Guetta – known as Mr. Brainwash. The Exhibition will take place at The Old Sorting Office on August 3rd 2012.  The work of art is exquisite in my opinion, capturing Kate Moss’s sexuality, looks, attitude……

Prada 2012 - Vintage Pleated Skirt

Ladies 2012 is the year of  The Pleated Skirts! Short, maxi, tea length, nude, colored, printed – with flats, boots or heels they make any woman look feminine & chic. Oh… and a bit retro. And we love it! Last autumn the designers’ collections had their share of pleats, and I thought what a cool trend for the cold days. Feminine and sexy in the middle of the cold blizzard. But the…

Star Style. Whitney Port

Some of the new celebs out there seem to just have it all. Beauty, fame, money. And style. And Whitney Port is no exception. After starring in two of the most watched TV reality shows at that time: The Hills & The City, she scored every-girls-dream-jobs: at Teen Vogue, in fashion PR, at top designer Diane Von Furstenberg, only to later design and launch her own fashion line ‘Whitney Eve’ . A feminine, sophisticated, cocktail dress meets rock chick line. Exactly like Whitney if you ask me. And not bad at all! Her eclectic style – as she likes to describe it – is in tune with her moods, so it comes to no surprise that we sometimes spot her in the most boy’ish outfits, sporting trainers, old shorts, large dusted T-shirts, only to – next day – find her in the coolest mini flirty dresses or classic black suit. What she…

2012 Marc Jacobs Sneakers

A while ago I made a post on the ’90s fashion revival, with a bit of insecurity to be honest with you, as I thought I may have not spotted a trend, but more of a fad… Well seems to me the ’90s fashion inspired looks are here to stay. From the High Street to the runways- with the sneakers comeback – we are witnessing a dip in the grunge-cool era of fashion.…

Topshop Skirts Crush. Mid-Calf, Maxi & Dip Back

To continue my best buys and clothes crushes posts, I thought of sharing with you some of my favourite skirts at Topshop. Yes, again the edgy cool brand is featured on FashionTag simply because in my opinion it does bring some cool fashion original stuff on the high street. Following the season trends it somehow manages to bring and emphasize a lot its own vibe and pun a twist on all ‘trendy’ trends out there. Since summer is here (well theoretically ’cause London seems to be part of another hemisphere)  we’ll all go crazy for skirts. What to pick, which ones to wear? How to be trendy but keep it original? How to look unique with all uniform high street clothes? Easy… mix and match  & clash styles. Right now I have a bit of a crush on knee length and maxi skirts! They can be…

H&M pink wedges £14.99; image courtesy of H&M UK

When summer is just around the corner, all women seem to care about is how they look and what they wear. We ditch our thick annoying sweaters, trousers, socks for flip flops, flirty dresses, colored shoes, bags, sunglasses. We make it a day with our girlfriends at shopping and end it victoriously (richer in buys, poorer in money) over a cup of coffee and a few cakes, why not? One of the…

Nikki Reed - 2012 MTV Movie Awards

Another red carpet event… another craze among all fashion bloggers… Though I’m not a huge fan of covering red carpet stories it’s just something that comes with the territory and besides it does come in handy sometimes to have a reference of evening/cocktail looks. Who knows what events we might be invited or have to go to & some inspiration might be quite helpful. Though it’s not the Oscars or the Cannes, MTV…

Queen Diamond Jubilee. Topshop Celebrates With Jubilee Jewellery

This weekend London and the whole UK is in celebration as it is the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee – an event marking 60 years of the Queen’s reign. And though the weather is not on our side (yeah you heard me, again London is all wet) – people seem to be out and celebrating. Cupcakes, events, contests, promotional merchandise – it’s all out here. Such is the case of the big brand Topshop, who took advantage all they could of this event and are putting up for sale some quite fantastic Queen Diamond Jubilee Jewellery. Yes that’s right, it’s all about the money, advertising & sales… Not too bad when the event is worth celebrating though, right? Anyway I’ll be on my best party behaviour these days not minding to spend a few pounds on memorable tiny bits Jubilees and make the best of this holiday. Oh and…

Yesterday Marilyn Monroe would have been 86 years old… Decades later and we are still copying her, commenting her. Women all over the world – from your regular girl next door to the established celebrity out there try to emulate her style. Sexy, vulnerable, powerful, honest. Marilyn Monroe will always stand for the ultimate beauty, sex appeal and incredible glamour. With the least make up, with curves that today would label any…

Star Style - Coco Rocha

I’ve always thought models are the best trend-setters & style icons out there! Could it be all the hours spend around stylists, designers? Or the times away on photoshoots? The small styling tips they get…  And not to mention the access to clothes, accessories… What a life! And they always look like they’ve just thrown something on and stepped out for a short walk or talk looking amazing. That’s what I love…

2012 Statement Trousers

As we go further into spring/summer days I come to realize it’s finally alright to go a bit mad, over the top, crazy and as original as we can with out daily outfits. And why not. I did say fashion is a way of self expression after all right?  With this in mind I am quite pleased to see a new tend being born.  The streets, fashion magazines & stores are packed with printed trousers, leopard leggings,…

Vintage Love. Bags & Purses

A woman’s never-leave-home-without item has outlived time and is at its best with every decade or season collection. The Bag! Yes ladies it’s that thing we all love, and never have too many of (alongside the shoes, may I add)! Whether for work, going out, or holidays the bag is not just a mere item. Or accessory. It completes an outfit. And so many other times, saves one. My mom has always told me ‘It’s not about the clothes as much as it’s about the shoes and the bag! Invest in good bags & shoes and you’ll always look good!’ You can wear almost anything it’s the bag that gives away a woman’s style, taste, glamour… What I love about today is that we seem to have outgrown ‘the trend’ in bags. It’s not anymore about what’s in or out this season but what looks…

Rihanna - Makeup & Making of 'Where Have You Been' Video

About 2 weeks ago Rihanna wrote on her facebook page “‘Where Have You Been’ video world premiere is now live!”  inviting all her fans to watch & listen. The video is produced by Calvin Harris, Dr. Luke, and Cirkut, appears on her sixth studio album, Talk That Talk. Though I am not too crazy about the song itself (though it’s true – it does grow on you, and it will probably be a hit this summer…
