You know I have this theory – when all is blue #Mondaylife, shop; when all is pink and rainbows, shop. Shopping, much like wine never fails us, yet unlike the latter we can splurge on it anytime, all the time. Add this mantra to the active life that’s so fashionably IN these days and you have what I like to call a recipe to sooth your soul.

Everyone give it up for: activewear shopping. 

TBH you don’t even need to exercise or love working out, you can just wear the clothes. How cool do you look running the world in heels and tracksuits? Right?!!! btw I ain’t joking. How amazing do weekend errands feel when you do them in leggings and crop tops? And how badass do you feel when you pair anything with your Ivy Park or Adidas sweatshirt.  Love it or hate it, do it or don’t, active life is happening and it looks better in activewear. And if you love all its sides you know how importante shopping for gym clothes is, right?! Except cake, pizza, or wine, nothing is better.

Activewear shopping is still #1 Monday hobby, and today I give you sales and deals that’ll leave you day-dreming and maybe motivate your inner ninja.

When life gives you hot summer days you drink lemonade and hit the pool.

We’ve all got a bit of glam diva in ourselves, God knows I do. But lately it’s been asleep #sleepingbeauty until last week, when forced by circumstances outside my control I was forced to step out of my lazy slob zone – we’ll call it comfort zone – and put a little more effort into my looks. Beyond jeans and a tee that is.

Memories of times when I wore heels all day every day came back. Of glam nights around town. Or extra bling, and super bold lips (actually this one’s the one thing I kept and like to think kinda mastered along the growing up ride).

And I got to thinking if I woke up my inner sleeping beauty what the hell would she wear? I went a bit all out and carried away by the heat of summer, and the excitement of my new #BringBackTheGLAM project so I did it all. Mini skirt, check. Leather, check. Heels, check, Lips, check, Cami top, check.

On the bright side I kept it simple in all black, and restrained from excessive accessories.

Sometimes you love to dress up, and lay out your office outfits for summer 3 days in advance, but sometimes you just can’t be bothered. It’s fine. I mean somewhere between not falling asleep fast enough on Sunday, and that Monday blues and never-enough-coffees who gives a shite about fashion anyway? What to wear suddenly sounds like the most idiotic question ever.

“Like, seriously, you should be so lucky I actually bothered to put on pants today. Ugh.’ #thoughts

Shocking as this may sound, eves us – fashion gurus and style stalkers get tired once in a while, and feel no jazz whatsoever when it comes to our office outfits for summer, let alone shop for them. Best case scenario we could use a style assistant. Or rewind a few years back to kindergarten and first grades and we’ll take whatever our moms laid out for us. Ahhhh! Worst case scenario, open your closet, stretch out your hand, hand touches clothes, pick one, or more, put in on, and hope for the best.

It’s called dressing up as an adult.

Therefore, all you need is pants, skirts, basic tops, and dresses. To jazz it up throw in a polished big bag, a pair of sunglasses and some gold jewellery.

1.PANTS: office outfits for summer.

A bottom style, alongside the skirt that is required in public, hence in office situations. Whether they’re the most plain boring pair of pants in the world, or bight and printed in funky styles, culottes, long, cigarette, dressy, stretchy, black, white, red – normally all pants (sans jeans) are office appropriate.

Easiest way to wear them: wear a plain white or black t-shirt (or a button down), a pair of simple heels (stilettos, block), sandals, ballet flats, a big massive tote bag, sunglasses and jewellery if you want.

TIP: go for high waist, not too tight.

2. SKIRTS: office outfits for summer.

Anything that’s around the knees (even above a few inches) is usually great for office outfits for summer. Pencil skirts tend to look more professional, but summer is the perfect season to wear more causal skirt styles, pleated skirts, flirty, floral, midi, even denim (midi length).

Pair them with a simple top: t-shirt, bodysuit, silky blouse, blazer, flats, heels, even sneakers if the code permits.

TIP: flirty pretty skirts look best for office in monochromatic outfits and flats. Very summer’ish. Pencil styles work better with any type of heel.

3. DRESSES: office outfits for summer

There’s no way around this: dresses are the easiest things to wear. You need one item + shoes + bag and you’re ready. From super dressy pencil cut dresses to more tea-inspired, flirty styles  – the dresses you can wear to office in summer are infinite. As long as the length is decent, and the fabric is not see-through, you can literally go for anything: shirt dresses, tea-dresses, tight and fitted, boxy, flirty.

TIP: avoid spaghetti straps and too short hemlines and you’re safe.

Hope this was helpful! :) xoxo

The good news is you’re born with it. The bad news is… you’re born with it. When it comes to great style and the good side of it few people out there have it all figured out. Truth is we’ve all been victims of the 2000s and the 80s and the bad outfits. If you love fashion it comes with the territory really. So if you haven’t taken a walk on the ugly side of style a few times, you haven’t lived well sartorially speaking.

Right?

Great style comes with your DNA really and a little practice. Irony is, it has so little to do with fashion per se it’s scary and refreshing at the same time.

Have you noticed how some people look good no matter what they wear, and how the saying ‘it’s not what you wear but how you wear it’ is truer than never for these folks?

On the other hand, opposite them are the ones who no matter what they wear they can’t get it right. Give ’em a plain tee and a pair of classic Levis and they’ll fucking ruin it.

The difference between the two lots lies precisely in the true essence of style.

A person with a great style, no matter if it’s a busy and opulent kinda situation or a minimal and simple one will have her/his shit together – fashion wise – from head to toe. The hair, the makeup, the attitude, the shoes, the nails, are all keys in having a dope style. How you are as a person, what you like, who you fancy, what you eat, how you laugh, what you enjoy doing – have more to do with a great style, or a well contoured  personal style, more so than fashion trends and following the must-haves lists out there.

A great style stands the test of time and the person wearing it will have that je ne sais quoi quality to themselves and their outfits no matter what they have on. Period.

What do people with great style have in common?

  • they know damn well what they like or don’t like
  • they stick to basics
  • they don’t take fashion seriously, so they will either have fun with clothes, hence have a great adventurous style, OR their looks will be just a consequence of all their sums and selves you know.
  • they have good taste
  • they enjoy clothes but are not slaves to fashion
  • they pay attention to details
  • they have go-to outfits
  • they are effortless

Why do some folks have a not-so-great style?

The opposite pole has people with less blessed style DNAs, and as much as it pains me to be such a bitch, I gotta say it: stop trying so much y’all. I see them every day and they flock like a circus crowd whenever there’s an event close by, and I don’t mean a circus like a Fashion Week kinda thang you know. Nope. I mean like bad taste. Plain ugly.

Bad style comes from a desperate place and a lack of self-education or information. You can’t wear 123,678 trends into one outfit. Okay, you can but FYI you’re not as cool as you think. Trendy? Oh yes. #notacompliment

In bad style’s defence one must say it ain’t easy staying on the good side with all the retail chains and online sales bombarding us with way too many fads. But, in fashion as in life, not all humans have their shit together. Those who can dress well regardless of the fads, and can pick from the fads what looks good and cool on them – well my friend they’re the lucky ones.

Is there any great-style-hope in the cards for ugly dressers?

Of course it takes a great style-ER to spot another great style-ER… so I wonder – is everything in vain  in this good versus bad style battle?

And is there such a thing as educated style? Can one evolve and grow sartorially speaking? All would be lost without hope you know. So yes there is such a thing.

Bottom line is, some people can wear all the crap in the world at once and pull it off amazingly, while some ruin a plain good ol’ LBD the minute they put it on.

Be opened to anything new, learn all the time, don’t take clothes seriously, love fashion, when in doubt stick to black, jeans and a white tee, avoid too tight clothes, and keep you jewellery minimal. Hair wise say no to overly done hairstyles, and makeup wise if you wanna make a statement wear bold lips. If you’re good with make and hair though, do your thing!

Also, know your fortes and play them.

Below I’ve personally picked a few items that are so fab you can’t fuck it up. Of course I ain’t the fucking guru here, God knows I have my bad days… and lazy outfits, and overly done looks, but I’d like to think I’m learning every day.

Love ya’. xoxo

Last night was one of the biggest and most eventful nights in Hollywood Oscars’s history. Viola Davis won her Oscar being the first black woman to win an Oscar, Emmy, and Tony award for acting.  Mahershala Ali won best supporting actor being the first muslim to win this award, La La Land won best picture. Oh, sorry, no, scratch that. It was Moonlight. That’s how it went down. Oh… and the red carpet seemed poor in ‘wow’s’ and stunning best dressed.

I decided to not sugar coat anything. I’m already having major sweets craving, I don’t need such temptation in my life. So I will be direct and subjectively honest when it comes to 2017 Oscars red carpet. It was one of the worst red carpets. Yes, there were obviously best dressed actresses and those who were looked beyond amazing and stunning and my heart literally skipped a beat, but there were too few.

I also felt like everyone was waiting for this carpet to make a fashion statement be it edgy or classic and most didn’t. They actually blew it. It’s like they stayed for so long in anticipation mode that they eventually got bored and didn’t bother too much.

Best dressed – Oscars 2017 Red Carpet

Viola Davis looked beyond perfect. The dress was a simple gorgeous mermaid in the best colour ever. Red looks insane on her and she pulled it off like a winner! I loved the entire look, form dress to hair and makeup. She looked beautiful. Emma Stone in Givenchy was the perfect image of how to wear gold’ish tones. I LOVED the contrast of the dress with her darker red hair and bold makeup up. So fashion and old Hollywood. Continuing the golden love was Jessica Biel who pulled off a very risky look if you ask me. She looked amazing, but the dress as gorgeous it is, has a bit of that army/ripped fabric effect. Even a bit of Flintstones fashion vibe. Nevertheless I loved it. I’m loving long sleeves on red carpet dresses more and more. It also had this 70s glam vibe to it.

Olivia Culpo – OH MY GOD! Stunning. Perfection. Beautiful. It’s simple, dramatic, very sexy in such a classic 20s roaring dazzling way it’s irresistible. I love the black belt and the contrasting dark nails. Love her hair and makeup. Ah…. I am in love with this look.

Ruth Negga. Are you kidding me? SLAY! This is beyond perfect and I think she took a massive risk here to go for a full on dramatic look, so powerful, and visually so strong for the Oscars, when everyone plays it safe, that it’s insane she did that, and pulled it off 100000%. LOVED the dress, the boho-romatic-dramatic-high-fashion style, loved the hair, the makeup. Beautiful.

Sofia Carson was wow. Simplicity and classic to the core and done with supreme perfection. I love how she was not afraid to keep it minimal and simple. That red lip was the only extravagance she went for and it payed off big time. Gorgeous.

Isabelle Huppert looked so elegant, beautiful and effortless. I love that she went for a very glamorous but relaxed dress, in which she looked comfortable. She killed it.

Okay, Darby Stanchfield looked amazing, but what the hell is up with the cape dress. My friend and fellow blogger Vanessa, over at Budding Fashionista blog said so well: ”the white cape dress. Is Hollywood not over it yet?”. Apparently not, but I’m over it. I love everything about this look, from the dress, to the colour, the cut, the upper part, the flowy rich bottom, the earrings, the hair, I even love the damn cape, but WE ARE OVER IT. Karlie Kloss, really?! Yes it’s all nice and rainbows and butterflies, but I don’t get the cape. I never really loved it, it always felt it was a bit shoved down my throat, but I took it cause it was different, classic, high fashion whatever… Now I’m done.

Emma Roberts looked very pretty, but what I didn’t really like was that dirty yellow’ish white part of the dress. It was a good look, a very classic with an edge style and she pulled it off.

Taraji P. Henson. STOP. Bow down bitches. I love love love love love this dress, and how she was feeling it too. Massive style crush and hotness. Love that she kept it sexy and simple, with just a statement necklace and high slit. It’s the classic red carpet sexy dress that we haven’t seen in such a long time, and I’m so glad she did this look.

Giniffer Goodwin had another version of Ruth Nega’s dress. Different style, same dress sort of. Major faux pas. But she looked good. Ava DuVernay stunning!!!! Again the long sleeves rule. Perfection.

Kirsten Dunst was oh. my. god. Too beautiful. She owned this dramatic very glam style. Chrissy Teigen… cape. And she’s like so in our face lately. Literally speaking. She always looks good. That’s all imma say about it.

Nicole Kidman… Can we all take a moment and say a big thank you and a standing ovation. She finally nailed it. My God, it took only like a 1,567,046,944 red carpets worst dressed lists but she did it. It’s all in the simple choices.

Priyanka Chopra she’s so stunning this woman can wear anything. I don’t know how this dress looks from the side, but from the front I love it.

Brie Larson looks sooooo pretty and refined. She looks like a designer’s stunning sketch. It’s glamorous, elegant, classic, beautiful. Love the hair and makeup too.

Naomie Harris looked sleeked and elegant and beautiful but I still think it was not very Oscar’ish. What the hell do I know?

Worst dressed – 2017 Oscars Red Carpet

[[[[ I am so curious to watch E! red carpet show and Fashion Police and find out what the hell is up with Giuliana Rancic’s dress. I am devastated. I don’t get it: the design is – what the hell is it? the fabric looks like shit, and the colour is great but not on her. Bad photo?! ]]]]] ;’*you guys…. this was my first thought. I have just caught a glimpse of her on E! red carpet talking about the dress and I love it. It was a bad photo. #happyagain

I know everyone was so excited over Zuri Hall‘s dress. I just think they’re all insane. That long waist is horrible, and while the dress is pretty colour wise and those appliqués are amazing, and the colour is fantastic on her, and her hair and makeup are great – that design  looks off on her (and on anyone else for that matter), a bit ill fitted, and not right, I don’t care how high fashion it was supposed to be.

Stacy London. Are you fucking kidding me? I have no words. The hair is great, the earrings are amazing, the colour of the dress is perfect for her… but all of them together, for the Oscars… did she lose a bet or something? And what in the name of the Lord is up with those shoes. Is this like a social experiment?

Blanca Blanco… …. …. you guys am I crazy or is this dress a bit great and hideous at the same time? I adore the sandals and the dress is major high fashion, that slit is perfect, but something makes me hate it. Maybe the overly puffy shoulders or that red belt…

Felicity Jones and Raphaela Neihausen… girls, we know Alicia Vickander wore that yellow dress at the Oscars last year or so, but that doesn’t mean it’s a ticket to winning best dressed. Hence your situation this year. I don’t like the dresses. Simple as that. I’m not a big fan of tea-lenght and certainly not at the Oscars. They’re not ugly of course… but I’m not feeling them.

Teresa Palmer – long waist, belt? What?! It’s like stylists and designers have agreed to make some people at the Oscars look not so flattering. She’s stunning either way… but that dress is not.

Leslie Mann shut down the internet with her dress, and everyone in fashion was in awe of how amazing she looked. I was un-impressed. It was wrinkled, and she looked like she ran off from a fashion shoot before they finished up her look.

Janelle Monae did exactly the opposite – she stayed with the glam team and the designers way too long, until they added all they could and then some on her dress and her look altogether. She looked too done, overly embellished, busy, too much.

Okay, can we all please talk about Dakota Johnson‘s dress, but without the pretentious fashion bullshit? Again the world’s sartorials died and said she killed it. She killed us, that’s what she did. Did you guys like it? I thought it looked hideous. I mean… yeah very cool and edgy and editorial FOR AN EDITORIAL. But it was wrinkled, it was sad, it was willowy, it was crying on her for God’s sakes. No?! Am I alone here?

Michelle Williams… she’s a very pretty girl but her style is so not my style, and I can’t for the love of me like it. Where’s the makeup, and the glam? It’s the Oscars for the love of God. I know she is wearing makeup, and jewellery, and she looks simple and pretty but something about this look I’m not feeling.

Alicia Vickander came out of the shower put on some dress (again the long waist), some diamond necklace and showed up. Btw… you forgot your makeup and you left your hair in your bun.

Scarlett Johansson was a no no. What the hell did she wear, last Tuesday’s vomit? She’s in this rockroll edgy phase I think. I don’t like it. Salma Hayek just wore her glam nightgown and didn’t bother too much. Ah well… we were all in pyjamas too at that point, why bother.

Charlize Theron and Halle Berry. Why? Maybe it’s just me but I thought they looked kinda meh. Bored. Not wow. Charlize Theron’s dress was too much fabric, and wrong hair, and colour of the dress. Bad styling. And Halle’s was great, but I think the hair ruined it. There I said it. You can now judge me and hate me.

Your turn.

We all love things that come in threes, right? Men in three-piece suits. Cheese, tomato, and pepperoni on a pizza. Harry, Ron, and Hermione. Hmm… Destiny’s Child? The point is that three is a strong number, and this rule of awesome things coming in threes definitely applies to your accessories. Right now, we’re talking a fantastic trio of watch, necklace, and a pair of earrings (okay, that’s technically four things, but let’s quickly move on).

These accessories can turn a good outfit into a great outfit – small touches that can complement your clothing in big ways. Bigger choices don’t always mean better, as often it’s simply about what works well with your chosen outfit. So, mix and match as much as you like, but just make sure you’ve got some good options to work with. And that’s why we’re here!

Watches

Let’s start with watches. A thing that looks gorgeous and tells the time? What’s not to love! You might think the humble watch is outdated now that we’re never far from some sort of digital device that displays a clock, but the justifications to wear a watch are numerous. First off, they are a great reason not to constantly check your phone, but secondly, watches are yet another way to showcase a piece of your style. Marie Claire writes that, “The wrist is a window into the soul,” but whether or not you believe in that, their blog post on celebrity watch choices is a fascinating look into how diverse timepieces can be.

Whilst we’re not suggesting that you have to keep up with the celebrity Joneses and pick up a few Cartier or Rolex watches on your weekly grocery shop, Swiss-made watches really are the bee’s knees when it comes to beauty and style. However, going down the pre-worn route is definitely a solid life-hack, as you get the same great watch, but at a far cheaper price. Browse through an online seller like this and see what takes your fancy.

Necklaces

Next up is the necklace. It can actually be hard to find the right necklace for you. With so many shops and online stores selling cool and interesting designs, you’d be forgiven for being a bit overwhelmed at the choice! However, if you only buy one necklace this year, make it something unique. Introducing: Origami animal jewelry. It’s hard not to marvel at the simple-but-beautiful designs, and no matter what type of animal you connect with the most, there is bound to be something for you. These are also just a fun conversation starter! Who wouldn’t make a comment about a golden origami crane or a silver origami fox?

Earrings

Finally, we come to earrings to complete the trio. In the past, we’ve covered larger statement earrings, but now we want to make a case for studs. Statement earrings may not suit your style, as you may wish for something less conspicuous and bold, but if you want that cherry on top to complete your outfit, then we have to recommend one of these choices. Pearl studs are an obvious first choice, as some of the classiest women out there are known to rock these; such as Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, and Kate Middleton. Then of course the above link covers diamond studs, multi-stone studs, and even snail studs (wait, what?)… now you’ll have to look!

Reads title. Goes and gets red lipstick. Applies it on lips, eyelids, and cheeks. Takes a selfie. Goes out. #SheSaidItsATrend What?!

Right?

Right. That’s actually one way to do the monochromatic makeup trend of 2017. But maybe you go for a more natural lipstick color. Unless of course you’re a model in a fashion editorial. Back in the 80s, my mom was not a model, but she did use this lipstick trick on her cheeks, I remember so well as I was just a little girl and would love to watch her do her makeup. Lips and cheeks were her thing and she actually rocked this monochromatic trend way before it was a massive Instagram trend.

monochromatic makeup monochromatic makeup

What is MONOCHROMATIC MAKEUP & why is it a trend in 2017?

Monochromatic makeup means same tone makeup, and if the colors allow you even same per se color makeup in eyes, lips, and cheeks. Mostly though it refers to the same tones and undertones makeup, and it’s usually best done in shades of pink, nudes, browns, burgundy, peachy, mauve.

The monochromatic makeup look can either be:

  • natural, fresh, and glowy
  • natural bronzed with shades of nudes and browns (my fave)
  • very dark and burgundy, deep reds meet non-saturated browns and oranges.

Don’t think of the monochromatic look as something in the same color per se, but rather a pulled together look based on a color that is extremely flattering on your skin tone.

monochromatic makeup

Where did this come from?

Somewhere between 80s trends making a comeback, and our love for Instagram #makeuplooks – this was born.

2017 is about fresh glowy bronzed dewy skin I think, and while girls love natural makeup they also love makeup A LOT – so this is a more polished version of the fresh face.

Influenced by Kylie Jenner’s same tone makeup looks (pink, browns, nudes, mauve), and then by celebrities not too long ago at the Golden Globes – so many of them rocking the monochromatic makeup look on the red carpet – no wonder this makeup trend is picking up.

It’s easy to do (sort of), and if you find your color tone it really can do wonders for your overall face makeup. I also think it’s really versatile and easy to pull off on most occasions.

And it photographs amazingly. Did I say I suspect this is an Instagram trend as well?

Let’s get inspired shall we.

Why do one post when you can do two, you know what I mean? Yesterday I was telling you about how rocknroll and 70s wild-child-wish-I-were-a-diva I felt for like a brief 20 minutes over the weekend when I wore Lorena Garoiu art on t-shirts pieces. What I didn’t tell you was that after my alter ego was done with the 70s situation (induced by this #LorenasTee) I too quickly slid into some pink mood, a little bit more girly if you will. Perhaps more glamorous ’cause of the shades, but still with a tiny edge.

I was wearing the same things for God’s sake, changing in my closet, I mean car. Ain’t much of a difference there, OOTD wise.

How did I do that, you may ask? I just switched t-shirts and wore #LorenasTee number 2, this light dusted pink piece that has printed her portrait on it, front and back. It’s beautiful. I paired it with the same things like I said but tied it all together with the bright pink sunglasses.

Something about the sun that day, my mood, my two alter egos playing dress up… even my hair felt like a bit of pink. It all felt right, you know what I mean?

In case you too wanna fall into a bucket of pink, or some type of 70s make sure you contact the artist – Lorena Garoiu (here) – and ask for your own art on t-shirts.

And now the pics.

I am wearing: Art on T-shirt by Lorena Garoiu | Vintage fur coat | Zaful Sunglasses

{ Photos by Cosmin Straut }

Once upon a time (faux) fur coats were quite a niche look: either super rich socialite, OR granny chic style you know. So if you secretly loved fur coats but were neither a grandma nor a rich socialite, and instead had a 9-5 job, a tube ride to work every day, and just a strong a penchant for fashion well then… too bad for you.

Sometime circa 2013 though, fashion decided enough is enough! Everyone wants to look like a million bucks, and there are more gals out there who love luxe then those who don’t, and you really don’t need to wait until you make your first million, or reach the beautiful age of say 60 to be socially acceptable in a fur coat. Nope.

So for the last 5 years or so fur coats have been the IT coats of winter, and 2017 is no stranger to that, in fact I think fur coats have never been more of a staple than today. Especially the vintage style ones and the brown-nude-latte-white-creamy-tone ones. They’re perfection.

The downside of it is finding the right one without breaking the bank, so you can either chase the retail chains for latest faux fur trends out there, or just find a great fur sale to get your lust quenched.

Once that is sorted out the most dreadful question will remain pending:

HOW TO WEAR a fur coat?

The glam look. When you’re dressed to the nines and a fur coat is pretty much the only stylishly acceptable coat: silky dress, high slit, stiletto sandals or over the knee boots, jewelry, bold lips. Somewhere between a Monte-Carlo-rich-look, and a posh winter evening out look.

*

The sophisticated look. It’s sort of like your work outfit or your fashion-week-kinda-of-style topped of with a fur coat. Par example: flirty dresses, boots, leather pants, button-downs, chunky sweaters, heels, beanie hats, jeans, crop tops. In other words – do you, only with a fur coat.

*

The cool-casual look. This one’s the easiest and best by far, just because it’s so effortless it’s easy to do and there is no wrong way about it, IF you naturally have a great style. This is winter going-shopping-look, meeting friends, running errands, etc. Boyfriend jeans, sneakers, boots, sweatpants, activewear, baseball hats, sweaters, sweatshirts, T-shirts. It’s the I-don’t-care-what-I-look-like-look BUUUUT I’m not so unaware cause I just threw a fur coat over. So… it’s fashion without being too fashion you know. I also think this one is the 2017 look.

Any thoughts on this trend? Let’s talk about it.
