What is true of fashion generally and of sunglasses specifically is that whatever looks best on you is what you should wear this season. If something is trending right now but it doesn’t feel or look right on you, forget about it. However, there are certain styles of shades that the designers have opted for on the S 2018 runways. Now, you will notice that some of these trends are not meant to protect your eyes against sunlight and will only serve for aesthetic purposes. Still, some researchers say that sunlight is actually beneficial to the eyes and it’s only a matter of whether the sun rays disturb your comfort or not. So, with all of that in mind, let’s take a look at what’s trending right now in the shades department: Continue Reading

Ruins are the best ground for building a masterpiece. If that’s true, then the place I’m in has got a lot of fucking potential. And today, I’m not looking for beautiful places to take pics, today I’m simply walking the streets and stopping at a building that resembles all others. I always admired the color black. It has sobriety, personality, it’s got the necessary and the sufficient, in a word-everything. When in doubt, you have to know that all-black guarantees impeccable style. And let’s hope that Coco Chanel was right, and if dressed impeccably, they won’t remember the clothes of a woman or the ruins surrounding her, just the woman. Continue Reading

So here I am, somewhere deep in the country, wearing this awesome, linen, knitted Ivana Helsinki dress, all covered in gold threads. Its heavy fabric makes it fall beautifully just a bit below the knee-my favorite skirt length. Tight enough to show I’m a woman, but loose enough to show I’m a lady…and so the story begins…a friend of mine told me the other day when I complemented her cool look “well, I’m going out with you tonight and I know you’ll get the style I’m wearing so I could wear what I want, but I don’t dress this way when I’m with other people because they won’t get me”. I was saddened to hear that. If there’s something I want you to take with you from my blog, is that you should be as wild as your heart wants you to be, because those are the only moments when you’re truly alive.

It’s so wonderfully easy to do a photoshoot on a snowy day. Any look goes. As a kid, I remember, I used to love snow, all of us did. It was like snow carried happiness in itself. It’s one of the few absolutely beautiful things that do not carry a battlefield within. It’s neutral. It makes no demands on us whatsoever. It’s just there. It erases everything superfluous. There are no roads. No choices to make. Continue Reading

I’ll start by saying that some of the looks on the runway this year look like there was no concept behind them, just a range of ideas thrown in together. As I was watching the Chanel collection, I had big doubts that Gabrielle would approve of Lagerfeld’s choices, especially taking into consideration mademoiselle Coco’s aversion for short skirts. The fact that Gabrielle Chanel introduced the tweed suit post WWII, which became the symbol of a generation does not mean that anything made of tweed carries the Chanel heritage. Continue Reading

This season, it seems designers are trying to make up for all the bad weather ahead of us or perhaps trying to take our minds away from all the bad crazy that’s been going on around the world. Whatever the raison d’être, we have quite an intensely colored, extravagant, floral, sparkly fashion season upon us. There are so many leading trends of the moment that it seems this season begins with a past years’ graduates’ reunion as it’s “all in” and “none out” for the cold weather fashion trends.

One of my favorite brands when it comes to elegance preserving the touch of originality is Ted Lapidus. Their selection surprises me every season as I never go out of their boutique empty-handed. If you’re having one of those very lady-like days, yet you’re not keen on looking as if you’re headed for a Buckingham Palace dinner, then I suggest you check this brand out. I, myself like elegance. As Chanel said, it never goes out of style. Elegance has modesty as one of its main components and modesty always arouses seduction (and that’s what we’re all secretly after, right?). Still I avoid conservatism at all costs. Continue Reading

Blue says “hire me”

Navy blue is considered one of the best colours to wear on a job interview. According to a Career Builder survey of 2,099 hiring managers, interviewees wearing blue were considered team players. The colour symbolizes relaxation, loyalty, confidence and control. Continue Reading

Two hits of the 2017 summer season: the bodysuit and the high waist palazzo pants. They are the perfect combination for that “hourglass shape” figure you’ve been aiming for. Continue Reading

What are you willing to do for the sake of fashion? How far are you willing to go? How much are you willing to show? The 90s style that’s back in business today says you’re going to reveal your underwear. Too vulgar? Are you sure? Continue Reading
