I absolutely adore summer and because I am the quintessential water baby, I always spend as much time as I possibly can swimming. But ever since the weather started warming up this year, I have been avoiding any serious water time because every single bathing suit that I own is faded, stretched, and basically falling apart. I know it’s time for me to get a new one, but I absolutely HATE shopping for bathing suits – like, with a passion! But no matter how much I don’t want to do it, my sorry excuses for swimsuits have to be replaced. I’ve already searched Discountrue for // READ MORE…

Once you get passed April you can literally hear wedding bells every weekend, events lining up faster than sartorials at designer sales, it’s raining with invites for fancy dinners, cocktail parties, red carpets, and outdoor happenings all throughout summer. Ah, the struggles. And no, I am not joking. If you too love fashion but get both excited as well as panicked at the thought of having to stylishly attend the poshest events of summer, know this: you are not alone. We all know, a pretty face, a great makeup and hair, and countless wine glasses in beautiful manicured hands is not all we need. Yes // READ MORE…

Working from home sounds like a winner to most women. But, that doesn’t mean that it’s without a few downsides. Nearly everyone who dreams of working from home imagines themselves working on the computer in a pair of jogging pants, an oversized t-shirt and slippers (or jammies).   You are the CEO. And, as an entrepreneur in your field, you need to use every tool possible to compete for the next deal. To operate your own business, you need a computer, internet access, the skill set necessary to accomplish the jobs you accept and – believe it or not – a dress code.   Anywhere // READ MORE…

There are dresses, and then there are DRESSES. When it comes to CECILY dresses – my favourite dresses brand for office & events – that’s how I cut a long story short. And trust me this is coming from a woman whose eyes wander more often than not over to edgier and sometimes more extravagant pieces. But, if my age and sartorial adventures have taught me anything it’s that sometimes classic and luxurious are winning tickets. You can never, in a million years beat a classic cut dress, perfect for office or even some more formal events. Sure, you can give it a slight edge and twist // READ MORE…

If you think FashionWeek is the place to be for partying and hanging out with la creme de la creme of the sartorial world, or just the cool kids, well… think again. Once summer hits our hearts they start beating to our fave beats, songs, and artists and we all turn into these new-type-of-groupies that spend weekends at music festivals in the coolest clothes ever. This apparently is the new thing to do if you love music, you love summer, and you love love love fashion. When it comes to summer and weekend fashion aka festival fashion we’ve pretty much become gurus of what to // READ MORE…

That I’m as quick tempered as a storm, and fiery as fire can get is no surprise, so there is really no wow factor to the fact that I feel at my mostest when draped in red. Yeah, yeah I know, what a cliche. But when I’m wearing red and a gorgeous dress like the one in this post I’m again walking as if Beyonce and I are singing “I’m a grown woman, I can do whatever I want.” Damn right. And we strut. We don’t walk. I’ve been dying to wear this dress for a long time and let me just say that the // READ MORE…

Right about the time ‘Sex And The City’ was breaking through and Carrie was causing commotions with her looks and her beautiful name necklace, that’s right about the same time I started coveting her style AND decided that all I ever wanted was a name necklace of my own. Forward a few years later (okay, tones of years later) and ta-daaa! my wish not only came true, but I was happy it did. Cause you know sometimes you think you want something up until you actually get it, and then you realise you don’t want it anymore. Yeah, not the case here, hence the title. // READ MORE…

I LOVE the human face, those incredibly interesting features that tell me stories, that have a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’. I adore those. I get inspired by that type of beauty. There’s nothing more magnetic than a face that tells a story. And I cherish it, and the connection that’s born between me as an artist and my model is the most powerful and humbling thing in the world. I give in to that.  – Lorena Garoiu It was probably the warmest and sunniest winter day that Saturday, when my photographer and I pulled up to Lorena’s house a month ago, on a street that // READ MORE…

You know those perfect Instagram kitchen decors, with those perfect coffees resting on textured wooded tables, at which the most beautiful man we’ve seen is sitting in his effortless persona, disheveled hair, sexy everything, sipping that coffee while reading his morning paper through his eyeglasses? Yeah. What in the name of Lawd is hotter than that? Well, two things actually. Same scenario in a birthday suit, OR a woman doing the same thing. And if you pay close attention both have one thing in common: a perfect pair of eyeglasses.  When it comes to eyeglasses we’re witnessing one of the best fashion and utility combos // READ MORE…

Much like anything great in life – relationships, love, chemistry, friendship, fun, laziness, inspiration – you can’t force a great outfit. It just doesn’t happen. You’d think it only has to do with the actual clothes, but no. C’mon, even we are not that shallow. A great outfit is a perfect combo of what you’re wearing, with how you’re feeling, your details, state of mind, mood, great light, great hair day, great face day, et all. And also, you never want to waste a great #OOTD on a basic situation, right? Well I am bloody grateful I waited to drape myself in cappuccino and cream // READ MORE…
