I said something about helping a friend with a wedding a while back – remember the lace headpiece? I also told you that besides the bride’s veil, I handcrafted a special headpiece for the Godmother. She had this beautiful summery silk maxi dress in bright green and bright red blended together in a marbled fashion and I was supposed to accessorize that!
Since the dress was quite simple, only counting on the vivid colors play, I had to amp up the headpiece. And since my friend has a special weakness for some poppies I did for her a while back (these poppies here, only in blood red), I went for a poppies extravaganza headpiece with veil! Perfect for summer occasions: weddings, engagement parties, cocktails or fancy going-outs!

Fall is coming. Are you ready? I’m not. I’d like to hold on to summer. To hold on to summer clothes, to summer food, to summer vacations, to summer glow and summer hair.
I actually have a trick to help me get over the summer bathing suit blues – I focus on the lingerie drawer for the colder months. As the latest in lingerie is the ‘plain sight’ trick, we’ve seen so many undies embracing the aesthetic transformation of the once simple support function of intimate wear! Wearing your lingerie as an actual garment is a thing, people!

Out of the many style suggestions and catwalk models proposed by the talented designers for the Fall/Winter 2015-2016, let’s narrow it to two timeless approaches: Bohemian and Military!
Of the two, what would you choose? Who knows, you may even have it in your closet and you’ll save yourself the splurge for something else! So far, you’ve received a fair share of emails with fall collections from your favorite stores and you may have you heart set on some items, but before you click on buy, read below, it may help you make your best decision:

Audrey Hepburn, Jean Shrimpton – what do they have in common besides their excellent flair for style and an outstanding level of professionalism? (among others) they both loved and wore extensively the iconic original sandal created by Dr Scholl back in the sixties!
I’ve been a loyal fan of practical comfort – you’ve read my accolades for a new Birkenstock collection, now I’ll keep it grounded with a new story about comfortable shoes that are unbelievably comfortable: DrScholl’s, the iconic wood-soled footwear brand is adding amazing new designs to its classic original collection: scroll down to see why I’m so enthusiastic about!

As you’ve probably noticed already, I was born with naturally thin & short eyelashes. Cause for permanent sorrow since I always chose to accentuate my eyes when I was wearing makeup.
And that doesn’t happen too often nowadays, but that’s ok, I’m comfortable with who I naturally am. It took me a while, but that’s another episode we’ll (maybe) get into one day. After trying too many mascaras, too many castor oil masks and cosmetic regenerators on my eyelashes, I finally got to the big question: Should I get Lashes Extensions or stick only to my eyelashes curler? Since some of you are also contemplating the same question, scroll down to see the pros&cons and the eyelashes math!

What’s a wedding for you? Of course, I’m talking fashion-wise and diy-wise and… you know, style-wise in general – so you may want to skip the champagne bubbles talk… Here, I’ll help you:
To me, a wedding is a special celebration of love. As such, it should be about l.o.v.e. and not about anything else (including pleasing the MIL or the distant cousins who just flew in extra miles to see you exchanging vows). Focus on that celebration and you’ll be gorgeous even if you’ll wear an outrageously environment unfriendly plastic bag for a dress!
I’ve been asked by a friend to help out with a wedding… With a bride’s veil and the Godmother’s head piece as well.
Honestly, I thought I would f-up royally, but it ended up being the closest to Haute Couture I’d ever get, so…

‘Fashion used to be so easy back in the day’ is becoming a defining phrase for another generation! Remember when SATC’s (original) Carrie famously said that she used to buy Vogue instead of food because it felt it fed her more?
Yeah, well… not anymore! Fashion’s on-paper media feel so antiquated, it should change the newsstand for auction houses & collectors markets! It’s like relying on the landline telephones when everyone is using smartphones. But who’s taking Vogue’s place in the trendsetters elite? Social media! Instagram & Twitter, Facebook & Snapchat! How’s fashion now that different from ‘back in the day’:

Come fall, you’ll see an abundance of tassels and fringes. Because, they say, the bohemian spirit is taking fashion by storm – hence today’s DIY tassel earrings inspired by Lanvin FW 2015 collection. You’ll also notice a pronounced tendency to let go of the ‘trends’. As we know them, the trends are fading away. Instead, a new ‘trend’ is rising: the typology.
That’s basically an ID for each of the women fashion is designing for this season – as such, I’ve seen references to ‘the Lolita’ or the ‘Fashion Nun’ for this fall’s main style directions. The trends are dead, long live the trends! Euh – deontological ethics aside, let’s focus on the tassel earrings!
