Article by Ghintare Survilaite Accessorizing your outfit is one of the best ways to personalize it and stand out from the crowd even wearing pretty regular clothing items. It’s not expensive either… of course, if you’re not a pashmina fan. You can choose from a high variety of scarves, having different textures, prints and fabrics to suit your wardrobe all year long. So here we have the winter scarves to keep us warm during the cold season. You can wear them in a loose tie style, with the ends hanging at your front or wrapped around your neck… you can also choose fur (fake) ;) to keep you warm. You can always // 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…

OK so ear cuffs may not be that new per se, but you have to give some credit to today’s designers for making this rather grunge accessory so posh. Have you seen Chanel’s ear cuffs? Talk about expensive luxurious diamonds that adorn ears of all ages. Actually I could see Anna Wintour donning those. Or maybe not. What I love about the times we live in (fashion wise) is the freedom and courage we have to literally take anything off the catwalks and rock it in everyday life. So when Rodarte, Marchesa or Chanel embellished their models’ ears last season (S/S 2013 collections) as much as I // READ MORE…

Article by Ghintare Survilante In term of shirts it’s not so much about fashion trends, as it’s about finding the one you like and matching it into your style. I was trying to build up in my head some nice outfits, but then I realized… they go with absolutely everything. You can wear a shirt with all kinds of skirts and trousers, you can look smart, casual or even sporty matching your white or plaid shirt with a pair of sneakers. You can were it also on a Saturday night out if you don’t feel like wearing a short girly dress. We were able to see white shirts (worn // READ MORE…

At first I thought this ’90’s fashion revival was just a passing  fashion mood, but it seems to have caught up and keep expanding. And I love it. Of course ’90’s fashion was not really the best, yet there’s something about the grunge meets girly decade that has us all going  back and reminiscing on our teenage years. Even designers have dipped into the grunge era for inspiration with their 2013 S/S collections and it’s safe to say that either way you go (as long as you keep it 90’s inspired) you’ll be looking cool. Nostalgic after Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, Johnny Depp & Kate Moss? Or still // READ MORE…

Having worked these past days on Fashion Week & fashion shows posts, I stumbled upon some of 2013 S/S women’s collections and couldn’t help smile at the thought that this spring & summer we’ll all be dipping into the ’70’s for some fashion inspiration. The ’70’s were all about disco kitsch and glam punk, with those super shiny skinny trousers and overdose of glitter as if everyone was a frustrated little girl reliving their childhood. And I was like… this will not pick up. Oh how soon had I spoken, cause just yesterday Refinery29 was telling us how cool holographic bags are. Gulp. So then // READ MORE…

Article by Ghintare S. When I first saw them I thought these were the ugliest shoes ever…. whether I was getting used to seeing them around every day or just realizing that you do can mix them into different kind of outfits, the point is… I started to kinda like Isabel Marant’s wedge sneakers. Well, now there are a lot of brands which sell sneakers with platforms, but the first one to make them a must-have was the French designer. My question in the beginning was “why do women like these sneakers so much?” and I realized they actually have a lot of reasons: you can wear them all year // READ MORE…

When it comes to layering clothes nobody does it better than the Brits! Must be the weather, I mean you literally can’t leave home without checking the forecast and even so you can’t expect to nail it down (fashion/temperature wise) 100%. Between outside & the tube you switch 3 seasons so talk about a temperature roller-coaster, right? How to keep warm & stay cool at the same time throughout the day, while looking fabulous? That’s easy. Layers! Though the Layering Trend has been around for a couple of years, it always feels updated & new each season. With the streets being invaded by ladies in millions of layers… // READ MORE…

Ah… Fur Hats! Another fashion trend for 2013 Winter that has me reminiscing on my childhood and how I hated wearing hats. 20 Years later and… I love them, hell I’m wearing them in Autumn and Spring as well so talk about a style twist there. The best thing about Fur Hats is that, besides looking super cool and stylish they keep us warm and comfy, and I always thought how interesting it is that a fully covered up neck and head will keep you warmer than boots or thick trousers. Hmm. Furry heads have been around for centuries, just think about those Russian aristocratic ladies in // READ MORE…

Exposed socks? I am so pleasantly recalling this as my favorite things to wear as a little girl. I had a pair of white short socks to go with tiny sandals and a pair of blue knee-high ones. My fashion sense must have dated from back then (joking!). And, just a few years ago girls and women alike started wearing them again with heels or boots, so although it’s been around for a while (or better said it never left) this trend  is yet again making quite a statement. Could we hold… say… the Gossip Girls or Dolce & Gabbana responsible for this new fad? The designers’ Alta Moda // READ MORE…
