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?

As the year’s last Grand Slam tournament opened its hard courts this weel, we’re all rooting for our favorite raquet maestros competing for the trophy. Will Rafael Nadal win this round of the 2015 US Open after missing last year because of his wrist injury? Maybe ATP’s no 1, Novak Djokovic recovered his fantastic shape as he struggled during the preparatory tournaments this year?
Will Roger Federer prove his legendary tennis art as he seems to be unstoppable on hard court lately? Or perhaps Andy Murray is going to win his second US Open trophy this year? Stanislas Wawrinka already has a Grand Slam win this year (Roland Garros, keeping Novak Djokovik yet again from adding La Coupe des Mousquetaires to his trophy wall) but he is a winner here at the US Open, why not a second win? Or perhaps Marin Cilic will defend his 2014 US Open title this year?

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!
