Easy DIY Christmas Sweater

I just love a good easy do-it-yourself! Especially this season, there’s good reason to wear something festive every day!

Most of the time, I treasure the safety of a neutral outfit and the comfort of a monochromatic ensemble. However, color has entered my life during the dreary pandemic days – it brightened up the lockdown! Since then, every time I feel my energy starting to dip, I summon the powers of the rainbow to fashion me up! December is the perfect month to wear the entire rainbow and get away with it!

Finding My Own Style Voice

I am writing these lines while listening to the most recently launched album by Depeche Mode. My all-time favorite music style/band keeping up with their traditions in a mature flavored sauce yet constantly reinventing, revolutionizing, and innovating true to their unique nature
as I am.

I finally saw the light at the end of my clothes piles tunnel! I struggled on so many levels for so many days, months and years trying to see that flicker beyond my new age, my new self tunnel, I now come proudly before you convinced I caught a glimpse of my new destination!

Confessions of a Shopping Junkie

I’m Cecilia and I’m a shopping addict!
I’d like to take you on a sobering journey – this December 1st I started my shopping sobering road and I’d love it if you would do me the honors to witness my official rehabilitation!

Since we last talked, I’ve had fashion ups and downs but one thing remained a beacon: buying stuff. More stuff. Clothes upon piles of clothes. New seasons clothes, old season clothes, fast fashion clothes, vintage clothes, so many years have gone by and my closets kept becoming smaller and more crammed up by the day without making me feel like I had more options to get dressed in the morning. Does it sound familiar? (keep reading after the jump)

The Golden Rules Of Sportswear Style

Athleisure – it’s what they call the trend that swept the streets and the clothes racks for almost two years now. Leggings have become pants, pants have become leggings. Not the old cotton leggings but the gym ones. Yoga pants were everywhere – from the gym to the airport, to the grocery store and the casual mall outing!

Now that the athleisure craze is smoothing down, we can finally sift through some valuable info! Yoga pants are far from being pants per se. Sure, the name may trump you into believing that wearing the gym clothes for a quick groceries run still counts as a run, so? gym wear is a must. Is it?

Fall Wreaths (What Goes Around Comes Around)

A simple look around will tell you that I’m a huge fan of wreaths. Summer wreaths, Christmas wreaths, all-year-wreaths make my heart sing! Fall is definitely no different when it comes to decorating!

Hereby a visual of my latest adornments for the front door, back door, kitchen door or any other door or window. Simple, minimalist, natural wreaths for your eyes delight marking the coming back of the richest, kindest of the seasons! Also a perfect pretext I’m using to make a lovely comeback myself!

Roger Federer Wins AO 2018, Wears Epic React Flyknit Nike Sneakers

What a journey! What a match! This is definitely the man who elevates tennis to an art! Roger Federer has won his 20th Grand Slam trophy today, in the 2018 Australian Open Men Singles Final. Congratulations are in order! Well done Roger! I’m so thankful we get to watch you play again and again!

Much could be said about the match itself, about the Rod Laver arena being covered today and not yesterday (for the Women Singles Final) yet I choose to focus on the fashion moment: what Roger Federer wore on court for his big win – I’m sure you noticed something different if you have an eye for style -_^ !

Fall Back In Style!

My dear friends, how I’ve missed you! Today of all days it’s dreary raining and I’m listening to some thirties swing, sipping on a cup of latte, thinking about how I missed writing and babbling about every little fashion thing with you! With October starting up, I decided it was time to get back on the style track and, maybe, get you all to share with me what you have been doing all summer long and how you prepared for the fall style. And more!

Before I got to actually finish this story, October is almost ending! My, oh my, how time goes by! Let’s get back to fashion before we get to the wintery all hiding parkas and snow boots!

What To Wear For Spring Summer 2017: The Vest

I’m always preaching about not falling for the seasonal trends the fashion designers have educated us to follow religiously. I’m also highlighting the overwhelmingly liberating power of discovering and building one’s personal individual style above all said seasonal trends.

And I’m always curious -_^ did you find your style voice? What’s it saying? Does it say anything about vests and waistcoats? Because – believe it or not – the designers have set their mind on vests this Spring Summer 2017 season, it would be a fashionable time to bring them out of your closet!
