#ABOUTLASTWEEKEND

My life and its daily moments are totally chaotic, living la vida loca does not come in cheap or easy you know. My feet are dancing all the time, my fingers are typing, my eyes are rolling, my head is spinning, and don’t even get me started on my heart. Kill me now. And I can’t even leave the house without being swamped by fans. It’s the life of the rich and famous you know. I am of course JOKING. If anything, my life is exactly the opposite. Well… except the part about my head, and heart, and fingers, and dancing feet. That crazy-part is ON. The rest is just my coping mechanism that usually involves a few guilty pleasures, ‘what if’s’, and taking a dip into some obsessions. Of others and mine. At this point it don’t matter no more. Sunday was just that: a very…

Boyfriend Jeans: Trend OR Staple?

The thing about boyfriend jeans is that, (1) no male specimen is required, and (2) the aforementioned baggy jeans can be either trend or staple. Yet, if we’re to act like respectable sartorials over here we might just look the truth straight in the eye and tell it like it is. Boyfriend jeans started off a few years ago as this uber and frankly way too trendy item in every girl’s closet. Their birth as baggy relaxed jeans totally opposite to their skinny siblings, had probably something to do with the 80s mom jeans (that too are back in fashion) and the classic boot cut denim design of the 90s. Before we knew it we were bitch slapped over our fashion penchants with an invasion of oversized baggy loose jeans more shredded than our thoughts on whiskey. And we embraced them. And wore them to…

Military Look. Off To The ARMY Ladies!

Hey, you know what they say – a bit of restraint and discipline never hurt nobody. Could this be the reason behind the military look trend? Does fashion really what us poised and powerful? Intimidating. Should we all channel our inner Cookie Lyon and tell it like it is, stand up, own it, inspire and be inspired, and never let nobody put us down? I hope so. But, as BFFs as I am with fashion, it ain’t that. I think this bitch (le fashion that is) is in it for the glam, cause the army trend these days is having a very glamorous polished moment. Besides, who the hell needs an army attire to rock all the above. Exactly. Real women use fashion to express themselves. We (please allow my self inclusion in the above, and not for personal distorted reasons, but for actual realities this time, cause…

7 SKIRTS Styles To Wear This Spring

Sun’s shining. Birds are dropping hits. Streets look like day-clubs and ice-cream parties from a futuristic 60s meets 70s film scene. When the wind is blowing it smells like Chanel No.5. And when us girls hit the streets it’s a fucking Vogue edition of fab clothes on fab 6 ft tall silhouettes. No. No. I’m not crazy. It’s spring ladies, and I swear to God it feels like it hasn’t been spring for 10 years. First week of spring always looks like the circus is out on a loose. But don’t blame the players, blame the game. After a decade of winter of course we’re acting like 10 year old girls having a party of pink clothes, flowers, dolls, makeup, hair et all. So, in with light fabrics, colourful colours (yeah… felt lazy at that one), bare legs, skirts and dresses dancing around our hips.…

’70s Fashion: 10 Things You Need This Spring To Get The ’70s Look

No. Not a hot man to constantly make out with. Although that wouldn’t hurt. If you think I’m losing it over this 70s fashion craze, you’re right. I am. The world is too, and I ain’t one to sit aside and let things roll by. Not this time at least. Sometimes sitting a few ones out (take this as you may) is much more rewarding than rushing in the middle of action. Perspective you know. Even in fashion. But not when it comes to this massive trend: the 70s LOOK. I wonder what is it about this decade we’re bringing back right now, that has us all completely smitten? It could’t be just me, right? I mean, I did write that post on 70s Woodstock vibe, and I’m pretty much still stuck there, but seriously? Alone? I thought I’d lure a few of you out…

Is There A ‘Dressing Code’ For Fashion Week Street Style?

When 4 out of 5 street style photos depict over the top outfits and extravagant sartorial choices you kinda get to thinking that yes, the key to dressing for fashion week lies in fashion-dementia. You know, looking fantastic to the fashion lot and ridiculous to everyone else. But who gives a shit about everyone else when you  know that jacket from Cuckoo’s Land will be your ticket to a snapshot in some fashion blog. Right? Hmm. Does everyone at fashion week dress for the hunt of those 15 minutes of fame? Is the dressing code wacky, crazy and all the in between. Full stop? And whatever happened to doing good ol’ you? You know: DO YOURSELF. BE YOURSELF. God knows our social media feeds are packed with such advice on a daily basis. How about we put it into practice. Now that’s a fascinating idea innit?…

Why Knits & Silk Is The Best Combo This Season?

Every now and then I am insanely crushing over something. If it ain’t a song, it’s a place. If it ain’t a place, it’s a mood. If it ain’t a mood it’s some newfound hobby. And don’t even get me started on films and #celebritycrushes. I mean it was only yesterday I was ranting like a confused neurotic teen over Jason Momoa’s buns. Today we’re already married. Aside from my numerous such ongoing imaginary stories, I am ALWAYS in love with some look. I’ll, more often then not, find myself obsessing about certain clothes and I either end up writing only around that style, OR, redundantly shopping for the same items. For the past 2 months my mind and soul are stuck on what I like to call: The Best & Chicest COMBO Ever — SILK and KNITS. (*everyone sigh with me for a sec)…

Popped Collars OR How To Look Instantly Cool?

After spending hours on my Tumblr last week, on photos that put me in this 70s mood of Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg irresistible attraction, of Brigitte Bardot, of those great films, great fashions and times – it hit me. They all had one thing in common: a certain coolness, je ne sais quois effortlessness and more often than not it was given by their simple outfits mixed with their fabulous attitudes. And POPPED COLLARS. The fact that I’ve had to swallow my tongue one too many times has rarely stopped me from making big statements. After being wrong so many times, you’d expect me to know better, but here I am again taking back what I said last year: my professed dislike for the popped collar look. I think it was something like: ‘Unless you’re Alex Turner stop popping your fucking collar.’ Well. Now…

Fringe Boots: YES Or NO?

Give me a nice pair of shoes and I won’t say ‘No’. Give me a hot pair of sexy boots and it’s a whole different story that starts with a ‘Hell yeah’. That’s how it is with Fringe Boots. They just sum up the two best things in fashion: 1) Shoes. Doh, and 2) Trends, with fringe being huge in 2015 Spring/Summer. Okay, so fringe boots are not a new thing at all (70s hello!), nor is fringe as a trend actually. Remember last year? So I think it’s only natural that everything today coexists in this sartorial happy marriage that celebrates personal style more, rather than just the trends. If you’re on board and in love with the fringe boots, or kinda wish you were let’s get down to business here: HOW do we wear them?  I feel like the best fringe boots are…

The PLAID SKIRT And Its Many Faces

The more I think about this PLAID and TARTAN TREND the more I’m inclined to say it’s not really a trend, but mostly a staple. Don’t you agree? Its lifetime is pretty long and frankly seems to not fade away, so here we are in 2015 (almost) still doing the plaid look as if it’s the freshest thing out there. Who’s to blame? Only fashion and its cyclic behavior. Perhaps the lack of groundbreaking ideas as well. But if you can’t marry the past, you’re nobody in fashion. Fashion lives, strives, takes its breath and ideas from its previous decades, hence the massive inspo and return we’re all having these days with the 60s, 70s, and 90s. And… what do you say what do you know? All these decades have one major trend & look in common: the PLAID SKIRT. Actually the plaid trend…
