For the past few years sunglasses have certainly won their #1 fashion spot regardless of season or personal style. No matter who you are, what you do, what you wear, who you love – you wear sunglasses. It’s a fact. 2017 is the year red mirrored sunglasses are huge in fashion, from wayfarer to round frames celebs and mortals both are rocking this understated statement detail.  Those who love this, but also love the little style gimmicks, or are just incapable of making a sunglasses choice (did anyone say my name?) can now say hallelujah and be happy – snap on sunglasses are a thing // READ MORE…

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 // READ MORE…

If I had a dollar for each time I switched fashion personalities and looks, I’d be filthy rich by now. While some days I’m all for luxe and glam, other days I’m a sporty ninja. You might see me one time in all black but then the next day I could be rocking a floral dress like I’m Miss Marry Fucking Poppins. Nevertheless one thing remains unchanged and never ever altered: my penchant for glamour, and my dressing to my moods. Give me heels and lipsticks, and makeup, and sexy vibes and I’ll take it any day and twice on Sunday. If needed with a // READ MORE…

You know the saying ‘Go big/hard or go home’? Well… seems it was the mantra behind this outfit post, hence the oversized jacket situation. The story behind it is quite funny actually and bares another famous quote – ‘be careful what you wish for’. And ‘practice what you preach’. What is wrong with me this morning, living via quotes and shit? Anyway. Here’s the story: I adore the oversized jackets trend. I really think it’s one of the most sophisticated looks we’ve had from fashion in a long time, and it’s so versatile and diverse that it really works for any personal style, from the // READ MORE…

Aside from my #GymOutfit situation the title of today carries another Q: could a gym outfit, be more than a gym outfit?  If we can be anything we wanna be, why can’t our outfits do the same? There’s only one thing greater than finding a great shop, and that’s finding a great shop that has ALL the bestest shops and brands at your fingertips. That fab fashion hub is none other than OCTER. I’ve recently come across their shop and I loved it for 2 reasons: 1) they’ve got the go-to brands we all stalk for best buys, so instead of checking each and every // READ MORE…

#GuideToCool We’ve all got staples we love, and #ootd we obsess about, but I strongly believe that the T-shirt is the sartorial star behind a lot of our fashion daily choices. And when that choice is backed up by a special kinda message we wanna convey to the world, well… it don’t get no better. The title of this style-post is not random. Well, few things about me are. Actually no, not really. Anyway, there is a perfectly tailored meaning to the above. The T-shirts I’m wearing are designed by a Madrid fashion brand – Individually Connected – around the very idea of CONNECTIONS and // READ MORE…

Crazy times my friends. Juggling life, and work, and a bit of play in the the midst of fashion week. It don’t get anymore chaotic than this. I call it the headless chicken dance, I being the little chicken sans the head, and the dance being my daily life these days. It’s all good though, I’ve had some pretty good selfies over the weekend, worked out, ate bad but felt good about myself, even had a brief good hair moment there for about 30 minutes. Ya’ know. #s’allgood Remember when this summer I bombarded you guys with some posts from Sziget Festival? Yeah, this post // READ MORE…

If you’re a fan of the latest cult film – Suicide Squad – this post is for you. If you’re also constantly torn between 2 jackets (colours) this too is a post you will love, cause like nothing else out there the jacket I’m wearing today caters to two loves. In this case wearing both a red and a blue jacket. Perfection. It was only after this Sunday when I wore my new Suicide Squad jacket from Celebsclothing that I actually realised I kinda love blue. First time ever in my life I’ve had a blue crush. With autumn almost here it’s as clear as // READ MORE…

For a person who’s cup of tea is not made up of too psychedelic things and closed spaces and weird lights and surreal surroundings in that very claustrophobic way – that day we spent at the Luminarium at Sziget Festival was not too bad. In fact, what had started as a long line of people, followed by a first feeling of claustrophobia (hello maze + coloured lights that can mess with your mind and vision if you’re prone to closed spaces) ended up being a very interesting (for lack of better word) experience. Could have had something to do with us turning it all into // READ MORE…

While it lasted it was fun yet incredibly overwhelming, music, fashion, all-around-vibes wise. Now that it’s gone… I kinda miss it. That’s the thing you see about music festivals – they creep and crawl under your skin, until you realise you’re actually a rascal with a penchant for comfort. And if you love the music, the fashion, and the beautiful people, you’re doomed to enjoy the festival, to get slightly overwhelmed by the crowd, and miss the chaos of it all once it’s over. Testimony of it all are the tons of photos we took, the blisters on my feet, the flu I’m still fighting // READ MORE…
