Wellies may be in our permanent wardrobe rotation come fall, however, few of us actually see the rubber boots on Saint Laurent’s runway. Hedi Slimane came up with a collection torn from the Glastonbury landscape circa early 2000. Suspended in a the muddy temporal loop, Slimane’s Saint Laurent Spring Summer 2016 collection is an epic blast from the not so distant fashion past!
Looks we’d see Kate Moss wear or on the backs of some rock royalty offspring born and fed with the silver spoon who isn’t afraid of dirt trashing a silk sequined embroidered dress. Hedi Slimane’s collections are the perfect example for fashion snobs mimicking authenticity and taking uniqueness pre-styled right off the store rack.

Rihanna may seem on a slower pace, musically speaking, but nothing stops that pretty head from banking every chance she gets! Her latest fashion foray with Puma seems to be making quite the waves worldwide as her recently released Puma Fenty sneakers sold out in more or less 3 hours after the launch!
Part of what is believed to be a more extensive range, the Puma Fenty Creepers were released in three colors, all suede, with a thick crèpe sole on September 25th with a price tag of (only -_-) $120. Three hours later, all online stocks were sold out and the shoes were overpriced-ly ($180)available on eBay.

Fashion Week season, oh how I love thee! The multitude of catwalk presentations, the spontaneous gatherings of fashion luminaries on the streets of New York, London, Milan, Paris! The gazillion inspiring street style photography! It’s like a shot of fashion adrenaline to live on for months!
How much of this fashion is just for the show, though? A couple of years ago, getting an invite for a Fashion Show was glorious while the Front Row was the fashionista’s ultimate candy shop (even worth fist fighting for). Now that more and more fashion shows have adopted the live streaming and street style photography is worthy for a Vogue column, how do fashion shows keep their edge intact?

My Converse love-hate story goes way back. Years have gone by and as refined my (fashion) taste, I started to appreciate rare, special items. It was 2008, I think, when I bought my first special edition Converse sneakers!
A gorgeous shade of pink, more eyelets than the usual All-Star model, a handful of $ (what, special editions tend to cost more), I was the proud owner and wearer of a beautiful pair of Converse All Star Double details Ox Raspberry/White: double midsole stripes, double eyelets, double the enchantment! Two weeks later they started to fall apart. And so did my love for Converse.

Going further and deeper into the world of meaningful clothing (and more), I stopped and went through every design signed by 32-year old Poland native Marta Maruszczyk for her label, Pulpa.
Far from the confines of rigid sartorial looks yet surprisingly structured and elaborate, the comfortable clothes made by Marta in her small atelier are as dreamy as they come to me. Loose silhouettes, soft fabrics, neutral colors, these are right on my style alley – take a look and let me know how you feel about Pulpa!

If you’ve seen it once, you can pretend it didn’t happen. If you’ve seen it twice, you start to notice it, but the bob hairdo was all over the Red Carpet at tonight’s 2015 Emmy Awards Ceremony!
From Lady Gaga to Jessica Lange, so many wonderful ladies had their bob haircut on full display for the glamorous event! Claire Danes, Kerry Washington, Amy Landecker even went as far as to style a faux shorter bob haircut to gain more edge than the other red carpet bob haircuts! Side swept, asymmetrical bangs, curly or slick pulled back, the bob haircut is the haircut to wear as seen at the 2015 Emmys!

As I discovered my love for tassel earrings, I tried looking around for more options and as you know I love wandering etsy’s fantastic alleys, I came across EPUU.
Epuu is a handmade jewelry boutique founded by Ebru Cangazi, a young architect with such a strong passion for jewelry design that she decided to pursue this vocation after completing her architecture studies. Lace jewelry, tassel and fringes, chockers and collars, there’s so much handmade creativity in EPUU’s stock! And the photos are lovely and personal with the designer modeling her creations!

Going through the Fall Winter 2015 2016 collections, I synthesized the main style coordinates to help you paint a better picture of the season’s wardrobe.
As far as the accessories go, the absolute novelty of the Fall Winter 2015 2016 handbags arena is a design seen in Celine and Marni’s collections. Two Fashion Houses known for their iconic-level handbags and for being truly innovative in their approach. Coordinated with the general perspective, military & fur, these new sling/holster bags deserve the trend spotlight – but do they deserve a place in your wardrobe as well?
