Gettin’ Cheeky With It. BUSTIER TOPS Trend!

Somewhere along the road, Rihanna’s fashion sense decided to marry a cheeky-borderline-kitsch but recurrent trend form the 50’s, ’80’s and ’90’s. Years later we’re playing dress-up with their kids. BUSTIER TOPS are reigning this hot season, straight from those VIPs, beach catalogues and catwalks, right to the streets. Forget guarding your bra from the eyes of strangers. Well. Sort of. I don’t mean like a bra bra. Although it kinda looks like one. But it’s not. Anyway. I swear sometimes it feels like there’s this fashion conspiracy against us mortals to see who falls for what. Something like The  Hunger Fashion Games going on we don’t know about? So… the award for most ridiculous daring & cool style goes to… It’s the time of the boobs, exposed stomachs, great bums & legs showing off in tiny little shorts. It’s the time of red lips during the…

SHOES Trend: The Return Of The MULES!

… aaand as the 90’s continue to be of great inspiration, with them crop tops, high tops, cut-offs, jersey tees, the undercut, and whatnot, I realize one can only milk so much greatness of a situation. Hence the rebirth of a few ugly shits from back in the day: THE MULES.  The mules alongside all the slip ons, and clogs are the best ugliest shoes ever. I love them. But I hate them. Which coming from me, is of no surprise as I can barely make up my mind on coffee with or without milk on a daily basis. If I were to remain very politically correct towards my trendy glam puss persona – I’d pick the hate-mules-team. They’re not too flattering on the legs, they seem to visually cut the feet, and unless they’ve got the pointy toe they look very harsh and masculine.…

What Do You Think About PALAZZO PANTS?

When a trend like this comes along, or its style is reinvented – I’m looking at you PALAZZO PANTS – it’s only normal some of us are left with the ‘looking at’, or perhaps just a raised eyebrow. That not all trends are for everyone (as much as one loves fashion) is only common sense. And truth. Personally I feel this is the case of these loose, large, flowy pants of the 60’s and 70’s. If you’re short, forget about them. If you’re skinny and tall, I call it quits. Unless you wanna channel a willow in the wind, which of course is acceptable if we’re to look at all the beautiful models looking rather high fashion editorial (read hobo-chic) in these, rather than anything else. But, to each their own. So, left with a raised eyebrow and a massive indecision regarding these trousers I decided…

It’s All About SIZE This Spring. (TRENCHES).

Now don’t let your mind fly off to some dirty little scenarios. Or let it. And while you’re off to God knows where (Stop it now!) we’re talking trench coats here. Just so you know. With winter gone, we’re easily sliding onto the warm season, which implies 2 major things: LAYERS & TRANSITIONAL pieces. In other words it’s a fashion heaven. Ever since I did this post a few months ago,  I’ve been slightly obsessed with oversized trenches. First of all trench coats are the coats of fall & spring, hence transitional pieces (ding. ding.), as well as perfect pieces for layers. And with the 2014 spring silhouettes and lines getting looser and looser, it don’t get no better. For 2014 spring, designers showed collections based on layers and the play of lengths, opting for oversized loose trenches in those super thin fabrics that resemble chiffon.…

Flatforms For 2014 Spring. YES Or NO?

If you thought the fountain of those (perhaps already too redundant) 90’s has dried up, think again. It seems as though we’ve got a thing for this decade, and re-embrace way too quickly its fads, regardless of their ugliness. Today we talk shoes. Shoes for 2014 Spring & Summer as both the runways and the streets are showing. Remember the creepers? (more on this style & its history here). With a first appearance in early 40’s, they had a more recent comeback in the 90’s, when girls were emulating the Spice Girls and the techno culture in those sky high platform shoes in wild colors, paired with tiny shorts or mini skirts, blue eye-shadow, and neon accents. Raise your hands if you wore them? I had a blue pair with black thick soles, about 5 cm high, and trust me, were I not so tall, I’d…

Kim Kardashian’s Style Makeover. YES or NO?

So I have a few guilty pleasures. The usual cliches bla bla bla bla, aaaand watching Keeping up with the Kardashians. Right. You can pretend I just didn’t say that, in case we’re not on the same page. In the name of research (or so I keep telling myself) I’ve been watching the show pretty often lately, trying to grasp Kim’s recent makeover. And if, after all it’s all courtesy of Kanye. Ever since the Kimye thing happened, she looks stunning and has transitioned from the generic rich socialite to this sophisticated and incredibly sexy woman, to the point where even the Anna Wintour is considering putting her on the cover of Vogue. After all, Carine Roitfeld took a chance on Kimmie when she put her on the cover of CR Fashion Book. ”She’s controversial, but so was Marilyn Monroe and I always like controversial people” Carine…

Valentine’s Day MAKEUP: Full-on VS Au Naturel.

Oh, I so had to do this post and go down this road: of le makeup and this week’s ubiquitous topic, Valentine’s Day with its much coveted looks and fashions. What do I know about makeup? Well, nothing actually (except my addiction to eyeliner & mascara), but I LOVE IT! I use foundation all throughout the cold months, sometimes eye-shadow (only in nudes and browns) and occasionally powder + blush with a failed attempt (most times) of contouring. Well, they do say practice makes perfect and hope dies last, so… yeah that’s my makeup mantra I guess. And in case I need to up my game I go for the bold lips. Attempting to find some makeup looks for Valentine’s Day is like looking for desert in a massive candy/cake store. So many looks, so many styles. Bold eyes. Bold lips. Bold both. Pfff. Not being a…

When Streets Turn Into Catwalks! New York Fashion Week 2014 Fall.

This is a post on and for fashion addicts. Yes chicas this is STREET STYLE at New York Fashion Week. Cause why the hell not, right?I mean seriously if I see one more thing about the inherent holiday frenzy (yes Valentine’s Day, I’m looking at you) I swear I’ll turn sick. There’s only so much pink, reds, hearts, forced (or not) love, one can take. I know yesterday I was preaching this, but give a girl the right excuse and she’ll turn it into fashion. So anyway, on braking the routine of the quite predictable week (yes more Valentine’s Day posts are to follow. What?) why not give in into some ridiculously lustful extravagant, exaggerated, avatgarde, fashion frenzy the street styles at FWs hold? Ding. Though I haven’t yet seen all collections, I wonder if the trends on the streets match the ones preached by designers?Not for…

What To Wear On Valentine’s Day? And After. 5 Looks To Shop & Rock.

Like we needed one more excuse of this What to Wear (read what to shop?) thing? Well, we did actually, and truth is nothing beats the excuse of shopping for le significant other in the attempt of seduction or keeping that flame burning hot after centuries. Whether Valentine’s Day is a shopping orgie for the cliche red lingerie, which as predictable as it may be, still is incredibly hot, or whether it’s one more occasion for more and more and even more clothes… I’m all for it. So regardless of your plans on the day that celebrates love, you will most likely be going out, whether with your partner, your girls or all your friends, making use of this let’s party/drink/eat/dance/make-out opportunity. And since we’re all humans prone to cold temperatures and common sense we need to cover ourselves, and what better way to do this…

In Love With Russian Scarves.

Hi. My name is Dana Cristina and I have a new crush. Well, actually addiction. It’s called Russian scarves from Luxyra. (click here to see them). Professing my love for all fashion bits is of no news to anyone, but when you’re gifted with one of the finest and most luxurious pieces your closet has seen, well, that just sums it up. Thank you so much Luxyra for my amazing Mysterious Muse scarf. (click here to see/get it).  So, as promised in my previous post on Russian scarves (here) I took a few pics of how I wore my Luxyra scarf, hence today’s post. Styling it was the easiest thing ever, despite its bold colors and daring flowery prints it goes with absolutely anything, giving a bit of that vintage refinement, traditional edge and luxury to your look. Winter does have its perks, true that: wearing…

Do Bloggers Have A New Obsession? The Tulle SKIRT.

Don’t know about you, but I am loving all that is happening in fashion these days. Yeah, yeah, I know, it’s all a bit chaotic and all over the place, with everything in and nothing out, but just think about it? No more style boundaries. No more rules. Every style compromise and once sartorial concession seemed to have literally vanished. One day women want to be glamorous femmes fatales, the other it’s all about channeling your Tom boy’ish persona. Ha. ’90’s are happily married to those ’50’s with their feminine silhouettes and ice-cream colors. And if you thought your inner girl or bride to be persona was a No-No place to go with your fashion choices. Pfff. Think again sista’. Just a few months ago we saw women of all ages and styles don this wedding trend, like there was no tomorrow. Why wait? Or…
