My post comes a little late this year,but all good presents do right?
As you can see I’ve been busy doing some changes for the blog (but that’s a story for another post!).
Despite the hectic schedule there was no way I wouldn’t go to at least couple of shows from AXDW! So here are some of my fav designers from this years event!
hello loves!! I know it took me a while to start posting again but now i want to share with you all the exited news I have!
To to begin with, I went to AXDW -which I absolutely loved as you can read in my next post- and now I have a new favorite designer!
I attended the fittings the week before and I already had a good vibe about Made by JK, as Joy was so positive and kind to all bloggers there. So I had a pretty good feeling about the show and I was right! Those of you following my Facebook page have already seen the videos, so here are some more pics from the fittings and the show!
We’ve seen it all during fashion weeks around the globe! Some trends we loved some others.. well,not so much! One thing is certain : bags once again stole the thunder in most cases! Here are some of my favorites for this season!!
I’ve been wanting to try MAC’s makeup line for quite some time now. While browsing their website I found that studio fix fluid fond de teint was the makeup that would fit best my criteria.
I began using the makeup and the powder plus foundation in the middle of August. I instantly noticed how easily I could apply it and of course how well it would last for many hours! At first I got the C4,5 which is a bit dark,as my skin was still suntanned! Now I use the C3,5 and usually mixing it a bit with the old one to create a more natural color!
I have to tell you that for me this line can only be compared to the Dermablend line from Vichy! From all the makeups I’ve tried over the years these two are the only ones that provide good coverage but also benefit the skin as they don’t damage it at all!
It’s Autumn time! And what better way to celebrate this time but with amazing street style looks! It’s the perfect time to do Layers!
Although many of you ladies panic with the idea of doing layers, I have to tell you it’s the simplest thing ever!
The first thing you need to keep in mind is your comfort. When you layer your clothes you actually want to be prepared for the weather outside. Early in the morning and later in the evening it gets chilly but usually during noon the temperature rises a bit. So what you need to do is create a light base,like a skinny jeans and a light shirt, and accessorize appropriately: a cardigan or sweater,a bikers jacket and a long scarf. In this case once you feel hot it’ll be very easy to ” unload”!
The second thing you need to know is the color palette. It takes a lot of practice to mix and match colors and textures when layering so if you’re new at this try to keep it simple: play with colors you are comfortable with and add a small twist to spice things up!
Whatever you do don’t use only one color! Layering 5 black pieces in boring! Use black and white and add red details!
Layering isn’t just for pants! You can create layered looks with dresses and skirts and it’s actually much easier! Wear a sweater over your little black dress and create a more playful look!

Following last year’s tradition I am posting yet another post related to school fashion( and when I say school fashion I pretty much include all forms and levels of education,as I myself frequently attend seminars even at my age).
This time I’m focusing on accessories.
When I was a kid backpacks used to be just a necessary evil, a simple way to carry your staff to school. During the last years of high school there ways an attempt to make them more trendy,but still they were pretty boring!
But now!! Oh how I would love to go back to school just to carry one of these!
Getting ready for autumn yet?
The easiest way to transition from summer to autumn is to start changing the accessories of your looks! A scarf,a bootie and of course a good nail polish in the trendiest autumn colors! Here’s a list of my favorite ones!
Now that was a surprise!! I’ve been following Lauren’s career since the days of “the Hills”(don’t judge, it was fun to watch and I ways waaayy younger back then!!).
Her first designing attempts were quite good and I always liked her style cause it had a certain vibe,almost like it was from another time.
But this time she outran herself! Her very first NY Fashion Show was to die for! I loved every single look: the color palette,the structures, the lines. I mean,what’s not to love??
I’ve always been inspired by women how follow their own path. Especially when it happens in such young age I can’t help but admire -and be a little jealous- over them. This week I’m sharing with you the reasons why I absolutely adore the Olsen sisters.
1)They are trend setters
Yes,half the trends you’re following religiously began from the Olsen sisters!!
