2012 Met Gala Red Carpet. Best & Worst Dresses

All the fashion blogs are following the same trend at the moment: blogging about The 2012 Met Gala Red Carpet! With all the voluntary & involuntary research & reading I’ve been doing lately on this event I thought of blogging myself about it. Guilty as charged. I have always thought of The Met Gala Event as one of the fanciest and most glamorous red carpet events of the year. Amazing gowns. Famous people. Designers. An event where simplicty was left aside and it was OK to go over the top as long as it was with taste and elegance. But of course… things cannot stay the same for too long, and 2012 Met Gala, as extravagant and glamed up as it may have been – left me quite disappointed to be honest. Too much trying – Beyonce, we know you had a baby, don’t need to strip…

Vintage Dress

A thing that never goes out of style seems to be the Sexy Chiffon Dress. From its very far away 1st appearance to the very present day, the chiffon dress is a must in any wardrobe. From the red carpet to the streets in millions and millions of styles, designs, colors, prints and patterns this dress is that closet staple that we resource to when we want to feel free, feminine and…

Rosie Huntington Whiteley

Not too long ago I was pleased and happy to find out that Rosie Huntington Whiteley – one of my girl crushes out there, with a great sense of style if you ask me – will be launching her own lingerie line with M&S. Yes that’s right! The very hot & beautiful British Victoria Secret Model/Actress will put her name, talent and modeling experience to work. The collection is called Rosie for Autograph,…

Vintage Love. Jewelry

True style always lies not in expensive opulent meaningless pieces one adorns herself with, but in a feeling she creates through her clothes or tiniest accessories. The best style is the one telling a story while mixing expensive with cheap, old with new. The love for all vintage things was probably awaken in all of us a few years ago when Kate Moss wore an amazing yellow chiffon vintage dress she found in a shop in London at a red carpet event. It is cool to look fashionable without trying isn’t it? And quite special and refreshing to rock fashion pieces that are a bit more than just a price or name tag. Vintage will always be my first love. Ever since I was a little girl and I’d sneak up in my grandma’s old wardrobe to find myself lost for hours in a world of memories, dreams…

Bare Midriffs! That just makes me think of Dolce & Gabbana SS 2012 collection, with all those fruit and vegetable prints and ’50’s inspired fashion & style. Or to be honest with you it takes me back to the late ’90’s when all you had to do to be a fashionista was to bare your tummy. Ladies we are officially in trouble. The perfect tummy is back in fashion as everyone is…

Christian Louboutin Shoes - Exhibition at Design Museum London 2012

On this lazy Sunday afternoon I thought of concluding the first week of May with a fashion event that had London head over heels (literally speaking) on Monday evening at The Ivy Club. Christian Louboutin Exhibition at London Design Museum (1st May- 9th July 2012) – to celebrate 20 years of his work. The man himself showed up in silver toed brogues & gave the crowd an intimate party but not without…

Style Icon. Kate Moss

From the freckled girl sitting on her suitcase in an airport to her glory days as a supermodel, Kate Moss has grown, changed, stirred controversy, envy and admiration. But she has always remained true to her own self, never hiding or pretending to be somebody else. Patrick Demarchelier had a strong feeling about Kate since he saw her in a Dolce & Gabbana photo shoot, naming her ‘the next Twiggy’. She ruled the 90s fashion scene with her androgynous look, making a name for herself as that tiny not so pretty model but with a certain something that nobody owns. She became the Calvin Klein  girl, the grunge poster girl – that every female in London wanted to look like and party with till dawn. Her child like physique awkwardly mixed with her seductive persona, her ability to be unbelievably beautiful or strangely ugly, to be innocent and sinful at…

I’ve been meaning to do a post on the ’90s revival in fashion and style for some time now, but today, coming across a Johnny Depp video gave me just the right boost & mood I needed to write this. Yes, he was the king of grunge! Still is if you ask me, though today he’s sporting his grunge style with a bohemian-gypsy-intellectual twist to it. He is a bit to be blamed…

Two days ago I got this amazing news from astimegoesbuy.me, that I was nominated for The Sunshine Award by Laura. Thanks so much Laura!!! As I said then you have made my week! It really means a lot, especially coming from a person who’s quite established on Wordpress, and who’s blog I adore reading every day. It’s rich in ideas, great content, pictures, it’s personal, funny, relaxed… Oh my God so happy you nominated me!…

Lana Del Rey

The so called ‘America Dream’ fashion trend or as some call it the ‘Americana Current’ of 2012 has a lot to owe to Lana Del Rey if you ask me. Regardless of me being a fan of her music and style (which yes I do confess I hopelessly adore) lately I’ve seen a lot of new fashion editorials that steal or should I say borrow a bit of Lana Del Rey’s ‘Gangster…

The White T-Shirt Fashion Trend

In those lazy mornings when you head out to work more sleepy than a baby and as less excited as ever…  fashion is the last thing on your mind. And who can blame you when weekends feel shorter somehow and you never get around to doing half of the things you planned for anyway. What should you squeeze in? What to do first? Who to meet first? Why… all of a sudden the weekend is a shorter version of the week in chores and to do lists. Meeting friends for coffee. Reading a book. Cuddling in bed with BF till late noon. Watching a movie & eat take-away. Going dancing or to a concert. Replying to emails. Going shopping. Cleaning the house. Taking a 2 hour bath. Relaxing. Talking to parents. Ohhh and the list can go on… and on. I haven’t added the kids,…

Gold Bracelets

Remember Marilyn’s famous statement ‘Diamond are  a girl’s best friend’? If I come to think of it (not diamonds per se) jewelry does make us girls quite happy. A great piece of jewelry ads drama, edge, elegance, refinement… Right now I am quite into bracelets and I think the more the better! I prefer big bold, statement jewelry as a rule so it comes with no exception in bracelets. Bracelets can make an ordinary…

London Street Style

Whether inspired by pin up beauties, 1960’s movie stars, ethnic cultures, fashion shows or even celebs – head wraps are so hot right now! I’m seeing so many beautiful sexy edgy styles of this trend in London that I have declared it the next street trend! Who copied it from who I have no idea. And it doesn’t really matter does it?  Celebs got some inspiration from edgy nonchalant street trendsetters and we…

Paris Kate Spade Chocolate-bar Bag

Have you noticed what always seems to catch your eye in an outfit or a person you see passing by on the street? It’s her bag. Her ring. Her bracelet. Nail polish. Necklace. Lipstick. Shoes. It’s always the details that make us turn heads. Or turn our heads. And why not, ’cause in the end no matter what you wear, regardless of brand or price tag when you add just the right…
