Whatever happened to good old Spring & Easter warm weather? Or did I just fall into a time capsule and got stuck in an endless Christmas? Which I wouldn’t mind were it not for the horrible cold weather. I mean snow… really? In Spring? Can barely stand it in winter hence my frustration and hard time coping with the present forecast. Ah well… a look at the bright side. Oh wait… there is no such thing. Joking. Crappy weather aside, Easter is coming and with it a tiny bit of holiday, but just enough (hardly ever) for us to stuff ourselves with CUPCAKES & MACARONS. // READ MORE…

If you’ve been channeling Twiggy or Jane Birkin for the past years well kudos to you for forecasting the fashion cycle (and for those of you  looking for originality you’d better spice it up if you wanna stand out from the crowd) as 2013 Spring makes a huge swing right into 60s fashion. If Marc Jacobs’ Louis Vuitton collection in Paris last season wasn’t a big 60s MOD revival warning I don’t know what was. With a green pass for all the razzmatazz of the youth culture back in the day, I really don’t know what to expect street style & retail wise today. I mean fashion from A // READ MORE…

Printed trousers or leggings are a huge trend this year, we’ve seen them during winter, worn with oversized sweaters and ankle boots and we’ll see them also during the warm season. The problem is how to wear this clothing item without looking ridiculous. Yes, it’s not so easy to pull out a nice outfit if your starting point  is a pair of colorful printed trousers. First of all, you should forget about  mixing prints if you don’t want to look like you’re wearing your pijamas. One of the best methods to avoid the pijama look is to wear high heels, especially if you wear the // READ MORE…

It’s not too long now until Coachella 2013 Music Festival is here and tons of grunge looks, bohemian styles and trashy don’t-give-a-damn attitudes will rain on us. What is Coachella? Why it’s the funkiest and coolest music and fashion event of the year, where the 90’s meet the 60’s and the 70’s altogether. It don’t get better than that, trust me! All the hipster kids, celebs, artists, musicians, bands gather in the desert to party, listen to music and most importantly look AMAZING, as if there’s no tomorrow. Of course without trying. That’s the secret. If you can’t wear it to the office, or even // READ MORE…

Yes dolls we’re celebrating St. Patrick’s Day this weekend so it’s time to fuss about fashion again. Not that we ever stop, but I’m just saying… we so love these dress-up and party excuses. So what does a good St Patrick’s Day call for? Aside from loads of beer and great food, that is? Green invasion!

When it comes to hair this season, forget haircuts and hairstyles and focus on color or better yet coloring techniques that are uber hot in 2013! What am I rambling about? Why it’s the Hair Veiling & the Color Flipping Trends, that will supposedly be replacing the Dip-Dyed Hair. Well… I’d rather they add up to the dipped dyed style, because I finally want to do it :)  Hair Veiling is dying your hair a different shade underneath its first layer, getting subtle hair color nuances by creating hidden panels of color, so that when you flip the hair from one side to another it reveals another shade. And // READ MORE…

Article by Ghintare Survilaite If you want to talk about sophistication, excess and luxury in terms of fashion, talk about baroque style. Born around 1600 in Rome, Italy and spread shortly around Europe, baroque style is all about emotion and drama. So if you are looking for an elegant evening gown, a black one with golden embroideries will make you look like a million dollars. Spiraling details, golden colors, lace and velvet prints sometimes combined with leopard and flower prints are features of this fashion style, a style to be adopted by those who are not afraid to be noticed. If it’s elegant, it doesn’t // READ MORE…

article by Ghintare Survilante The mission of a fashion blog is generally to talk about trends, but let’s talk also about styles that never go out of fashion, it’s either you like them or you don’t. This week I’ll try to give you an insight into the preppy style. For those of you who are not so familiar with this trend, the term preppy derives from the expensive pre-college preparatory or prep schools that upper- middle-class children on the United States’s Northeastern states sometimes attend. The usage of preppy in American high schools is quite often used to refer to a fashion choice, rather than the preppy lifestyle associated with // READ MORE…
