Why Gold Rings Have Become My Staple
  Those who know me know I have a thing for jewellery. Even as a kid, my mom told me, I used to adorn myself with all her pieces. Fast forward a gazillion years and here I am now… not much has changed for me in that perspective. Well… if I’m honest I’ll tell you that as a big jewellery lover I went from being a maximalist to the ubiquitous saying of less is more. Yes, I am now loving less jewellery, but more wisely picked. My staples are...

Leo Skirt: The Instagram Trend Everyone's Wearing!
Once in a blue moon (read more often than not) I get overly excited and obsessed over certain pieces, such as the leopard skirt aka the LEO SKIRT. It really sums up two very different things for me: 1) the animal print trend which I love and will forever adore and wear, and 2) skirts, which I almost never wear. I really don’t know why. I find them unnecessary, and quite frankly a lot of work. (they’re dressy AND need a top). Anyway, don’t mind me. ...

Skinny Jeans Are Dead. So What Do We Wear Instead?
Don’t worry I’m not gonna break into rhymes right now, and I’m also well aware this Q and post are long due, it’s just that the new jeans are everywhere these days, so I had to talk about it. Listen, when skinny jeans started to slowly die I died a little inside. Also I panicked. I mean, what the hell am I supposed to wear now? Boyfriend jeans, flare jeans? They’re okay but they don’t fit my bum properly nor make my legs look long...

Animal Print Outfit
If you know me then you know there’s a few things I don’t shy away from, like bold lips, a glass of wine (or more. okay, a bottle!), gold jewellery, bad food, talking too loud and too passionate about something, leather, animal print… I mean, I love animal print so much I could drape myself in it, the same way George Costanza would drape himself in velvet. So when last month we had a lunch date in town with the fam I chose to wear ALL the things I&...

Summer Dress In Autumn
I swear this summer went by in like 3 seconds for me, so you can only imagine my despair when, after having embraced summer dresses as a summer uniform – it was all gone. But… if like me you’re a little stubborn, and the weather’s o your side too, there’s really no reason why we shouldn’t wear  summer dresses in autumn. In fact I think certain styles are great transitional pieces. Hello midi dresses, wrap styles, and long sleeves...

Chic Classics: Designer Sunglasses & Pink Suit
There comes a time, after all trends being done and re-done, when going back to classics feels not just right but kinda of the next natural sartorial step, in one’s fashion life. So when everyone is doing tiny sunglasses, here I am rocking these Tom Ford sunglasses, as big as my face, cat eye and all like nobody’s business. #Iaintsorry Truth is there’s literally nothing as chic as a pair of big designer sunglasses. Ever. If you know me you know the...

Animal Print Trend: Too Extra Or A Classic?
It’s a classic, and it’s back. Animal print trend has never been as bold and beautiful as in 2018 autumn. The only question is: do you like it? My love for animal print has existed even since I can remember, from my fashion ignoramus days, to my now slightly more savvy ones, and tbh it’s that one fashion thing I’m always gonna love. Snake, cow, zebra, dots, white, black, brown, blue… you name it, I love it. However, there’s one th...

Button Up!
Before we completely dive into 2018 autumn fashions and bundling-up outfits I’m gonna give one last call for one of summer’s biggest trends: buttons! They’ve been on my mind and in my outfits quite a lot this past few months, and given their sartorial ubiquity and compatibility with fall seasons… I think this talk is quite appropriate in fact. Not too long ago I was stating how 2018 summer was all about the luxe laid back style, with a dash o...

Polka Dots Outfits: The Trend That's Taking Over Instagram!
When it comes to polka dots outfits I’m what you call a converted fashion lover. I did not like them one bit. But that was a long time ago, when the reason behind my dislike was that they looked too girlish and too retro, none of which I was a fan of. Fast forward a few years, and here I am sitting in front of a laptop, dressed in a black and white polka dot wrap dress, that I love beyond words. So… what is up with polka dots trend in 2018? Are they any ...

The Designer LOGO Trend In 2018: Yes Or No?
It feels like it was only last Tuesday that we were wearing what we were saying: professing our weekend love, our hate for Mondays, our lust for coffee and so on. I mean how many ‘I need coffee’ t-shirts can one person wear? It was fun for a while. Up until we were all looking *and saying the same things. Like everything about us and around us became a t-shirt meme. Fast forward a few years… and we’re in the same freaking boat. Only cooler an...

BLURRED Lips: The New Makeup Trend!
Listen, when it comes to any makeup trend I’m down for it: trying it at least if not wearing it. TBH beauty trends are the easiest and least commitment demanding of all trends. It’s just you and your mirror, AND if it looks good you’ll take it out. While I tend to use the same makeup look, I do play around with details and subtleties and I loooove experimenting with lipsticks especially. Here’s the thing: I’ve been doing blurred lips fo...
