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…

London Street Style

Whether inspired by pin up beauties, 1960’s movie stars, ethnic cultures, fashion shows or even celebs – head wraps are so hot right now! I’m seeing so many beautiful sexy edgy styles of this trend in London that I have declared it the next street trend! Who copied it from who I have no idea. And it doesn’t really matter does it?  Celebs got some inspiration from edgy nonchalant street trendsetters and we get courage and ideas from the rich and famous! However it may be, the head wrap holds within it  countless styling ways depending on personal touch, mood, choice of color, accessories, outfit, way // READ MORE…

Paris Kate Spade Chocolate-bar Bag

Have you noticed what always seems to catch your eye in an outfit or a person you see passing by on the street? It’s her bag. Her ring. Her bracelet. Nail polish. Necklace. Lipstick. Shoes. It’s always the details that make us turn heads. Or turn our heads. And why not, ’cause in the end no matter what you wear, regardless of brand or price tag when you add just the right piece – it makes all the difference. Sure we add our little, cost efficient items (but still so amazing) – while celebs and VIPs relish on (sometimes inappropriate) opulence and luxury. Anyway affording // READ MORE…

SS 2012 Shoes

What can make and break an outfit? Shoes that’s for sure! In 2012 Summer you’ll keep your head down, not for shame or shyness – but for spotting the feet fashion on the streets. From flats to sky high heels, from glitter to wood & canvas, from nudes to brights, mules to mary janes – it’s all out there. Just go on now… get your pick and run the streets like Carrie Bradshaw in her Jimmy Choos or Manolo Blahniks. What I love about this summer’s shoes is that there’s lots of color and texture. And floral prints are not just for the clothes – // READ MORE…

I’m sure you all remember your moms in the the ’80’s wearing floral print trousers. My mom looked fabulous in them. In the ’90’s I hated all our fashion legacy. Floral prints? How cheesy and kitsch. But you know what? Now 20 years later they are leading the runways and the streets… and I love them! As I always say there is nothing new to fashion, just reinvented, nipped and tucked… As if that’s so wrong! 2012 Spring Fashion Weeks all plunged into a garden of Eden and delivered us explosions of floral prints. Dolce & Gabbana’s show still remains my fave with sexy, floral // READ MORE…
