Ice cutting wind that makes Russian aristocratic ladies’ cheeks blush with color under luxurious furs that, alongside pearl necklaces and earrings adorn these far-in-times tormented beauties of the 19th century – is the picture my mind travels to, with this season’s fashion trend. A crowded 1870’s Moscow or St. Peterspurg railway station with trains that seem more like chariots under the blistering cold, with aristocratic ladies that make their way through journeys in heavy expensive clothes… it’s Russia at its best. Romantic Russian Imperialism with its fine fashion & style. When Temperley London presented her 2012/2013 Fall-Winter collection, she gave a away on a lot of what we shall indulge in // READ MORE…

With all the trends swirling around us like crazy there seems to be a general movement that makes it all happen. Style Clashing is the big thing now that embodies it all: from prints to chunky jewellery to lace, to evening skirts and heavy boots. If the ’80s were all about broad shoulders, bad make-up and big hair and the ’90s about grunge, the 2000s are about clashing styles. Wear your snickers with a feminine fancy dress, or your boots with an evening gown. Wear delicate pieces with heavy metal chunky jewellery. In this new fashion revolution the Army Jacket takes a comfortable position and announces its huge comeback // READ MORE…

Prada 2012 - Vintage Pleated Skirt

Ladies 2012 is the year of  The Pleated Skirts! Short, maxi, tea length, nude, colored, printed – with flats, boots or heels they make any woman look feminine & chic. Oh… and a bit retro. And we love it! Last autumn the designers’ collections had their share of pleats, and I thought what a cool trend for the cold days. Feminine and sexy in the middle of the cold blizzard. But the pleats were such a huge hit that the trend stuck with us throughout the four seasons and here we are in 2012 Summer still choosing the maxi or short pleated skirt for those hot days // READ MORE…

2012 Marc Jacobs Sneakers

A while ago I made a post on the ’90s fashion revival, with a bit of insecurity to be honest with you, as I thought I may have not spotted a trend, but more of a fad… Well seems to me the ’90s fashion inspired looks are here to stay. From the High Street to the runways- with the sneakers comeback – we are witnessing a dip in the grunge-cool era of fashion. It’s as if we’re all a bit to tired of the studied, clean, safe looks and just want to feel free, cool, experiment and not give a damn about the rules. Kitsch looks, // READ MORE…

2012 Statement Trousers

As we go further into spring/summer days I come to realize it’s finally alright to go a bit mad, over the top, crazy and as original as we can with out daily outfits. And why not. I did say fashion is a way of self expression after all right?  With this in mind I am quite pleased to see a new tend being born.  The streets, fashion magazines & stores are packed with printed trousers, leopard leggings, brights, wide legged, harem or skinny ones… It’s the time of The Statement Trousers! The wildest the better! The more it stands out the more you have done a better job dressing up. // READ MORE…

Bare Midriff! That just makes me think of Dolce & Gabbana SS 2012 collection, with all those fruit and vegetable prints and ‘50’s inspired fashion & style. Or to be honest with you it takes me back to the late ’90’s when all you had to do to be a fashionista was to bare your tummy. Ladies we are officially in trouble. The perfect tummy is back in fashion as everyone is rocking the cropped top from the streets to the red carpet. Is it just a fad or is it here to stay? Whatever the case I do have to admit, as uncomfortable as // READ MORE…

I’ve been meaning to do a post on the ’90s revival in fashion and style for some time now, but today, coming across a Johnny Depp video gave me just the right boost & mood I needed to write this. Yes, he was the king of grunge! Still is if you ask me, though today he’s sporting his grunge style with a bohemian-gypsy-intellectual twist to it. He is a bit to be blamed for this ‘90s revival in fashion and style, don’t you think so? A lot of what happens today on London streets – fashion wise – especially in Dalston or Shoreditch has a lot // READ MORE…

Coachella 2012 Fashion: Analeigh Tipton

This weekend the stylish rebel models/actresses/musicians all headed to The Music (and Fashion) Event of the summer – Coachella 2012. Put your jobs and troubles aside as it’s a time for relaxing and chilling in the desert California sun, by a fancy hotel’s pool, sipping cocktails by day and partying by night. La creme de la creme will be there! VIP faces from the music, fashion and film industry will mingle and get lost in the crowd listening to the best music out there. Indie, rock bands, DJs, R&B artists, pop musicians will all make days and nights to be remembered by models such as // READ MORE…

Jessica Alba in White T-Shirt

In those lazy mornings when you head out to work more sleepy than a baby and as less excited as ever…  fashion is the last thing on your mind. And who can blame you when weekends feel shorter somehow and you never get around to doing half of the things you planned for anyway. What should you squeeze in? What to do first? Who to meet first? Why… all of a sudden the weekend is a shorter version of the week in chores and to do lists. Meeting friends for coffee. Reading a book. Cuddling in bed with BF till late noon. Watching a movie // READ MORE…

Gold Bracelets

Remember Marilyn’s famous statement ‘Diamond are  a girl’s best friend’? If I come to think of it (not diamonds per se) jewelry does make us girls quite happy. A great piece of jewelry ads drama, edge, elegance, refinement… Right now I am quite into bracelets and I think the more the better! I prefer big bold, statement jewelry as a rule so it comes with no exception in bracelets. Bracelets can make an ordinary gesture of speaking with your hands seem so stylish, dramatic, trendy and more to the point. As if you’re the leading fashion lady of the latest movie or TV series. Bracelets bring together // READ MORE…
