The New Nail Art Trend: Chanel Toe Rings As Nails Rings

While reviewing the Haute Couture shows from the Fall 2013 season, I noticed something new proposed on the Chanel runway. Something rather intriguing as we’re used to a new nail polish color pouring down from Der Kaiser’s presentations!

So my dahlings, start saving on your nail polish budget only to throw yourself full speed on rings! Marcasite adjustable rings are the new nails do / must wear jewelry. Come to think of it, while the average Chanel nail polish comes with a $27 price tag and the average sterling silver simple toe ring comes with a $3 price tag. We’re in for a real accessories/beauty deal if we’re to bet on Chanel!

Beyond Time And Fashion: Prince Does V Magazine, Fall 2013

There’s a real timeless quality to a real artist. Something about him or her keeps it relevant and vital above time and space, above trends and mood shifts. And that’s the artist’s trademark. That’s where the art really is. That’s where you’ll always find quality.

I’ve always been pleasantly surprised by Prince and his eccentric ways. Be it in music or in any of his art’s manifestations, Prince knew how to adapt and continue doing what he loves. He knew how to deliver what was expected of him and more. Beyond ‘le gout du jour’, you had Prince always cooking his specific purple meals! Talking about purple: this preview of the Fall 2013 issue of V Magazine is stunning and proves the above points: Prince as photographed by Inez and Vinoodh makes a stunning impression.

Quick Complete Guide To Fall 2013 Couture

We live in fast times, my dahlings. And although everyone knows the chaos that is the Fashion Week, every season, the ever growing need to clone or multiply one’s intellectual receptors as to cover every show, concentrate reviews and short guides are still in high demand. Because, honestly, once the Fashion Week craze wraps up, nobody has time and disposition to watch all the shows endlessly. Quick and complete, that’s what I’ll do.

From StyleFrizz’s perspective, the Haute Couture collections (and designers) have clearly separated in two distinct camps: the elegant/Red Carpet/classic camp and the young/unisex/active camp. One of the main differences? Where the Classic Couture Camp will use sheer and transparency, the Active Camp will straightforwardly show the skin (don’t stop here, there’s so much more after the jump!)

Dare To Wear Una Burke’s Leather Creations?

Clearly wearing leather is a challenge in itself but also a durable experience that will take you through the years over and over again, keep your leather close and imprinted with every movement and every new wearing experience.

Una Burke’s leather creations seem as experimental as they are wearable and choosing one of her crafty models is a statement in itself as they go from restraints-like body corsets to simple belts, necklaces or bags. It’s a leather experiment in the works and it’s getting more and more coverage.

Penelope Cruz Designed For Loewe&Posed For The Fall 2013 Ad Campaign

When you’re famous it almost sounds easy to be a working mom, doesn’t it? Just look at Penelope Cruz (and her sister Monica Cruz): they’ve done so many things together, at least fashion-wise, and I can’t notice a single stress wrinkle on their face… As we speak, the two Cruz sisters joined their creative efforts to design a collection of bags for Loewe.

The fashion house’s Fall Winter 2013 2014 ad campaign features Penelope Cruz as photographed by Mert and Marcus, showcasing the said designs on the rooftop of the Casino de Madrid on a cloudy day. It’s all lovely and colorful, despite the gloomy skies as Penelope wears some bright accents (be it the leather gloves or the patterned coat) and I’m certain it will make for a very successful campaign.

Santana Black Magic Woman Gipsy Queen Oye Como Va Medley

Instant classic. We even have a kiddies guitar playing Oye Como Va. You can’t get more classic than that. When your music is so melodic and so recognizable that you can put it on a kiddies toy, you just reached the peak of recognition. And Santana is there for years, still going strong.

For this week, I thought about something epic. Something familiar yet always charming, always strong, always close to one’s heart. The Black Magic Woman/Gypsy Queen/Oye Como Va medley performed live by Carlos Santana in 1992 is just so epic, there’s so much music there that your feet would want to dance on their own!

You know me and my gadgety ways: once I get started, it’s hard to contain my curiosity for all things cute and lovely, girly and useful, smart and witty, helping us make every day prettier, more practical.

Love Your Bag? Save Your Bag!

How do you keep your dear bags while driving around and doing errands? I happen to like to keep my bag close by, just in case I need anything from it – you never know, if you think of all that’s packed in?!

But even when it’s not scorching hot like it is right now, I still like to keep my car windows open – I admit, it bugs me because I like to play my music loud, but A/C bothers me more, so I choose to keep my windows open. But then comes the trick: if I like to keep my windows open, how do I secure my belongings? With the safety belt, duh! I put the safety belt on my bag! Because I care. Because I want to keep it. Save it from harm.
