Victoria’s Secret 2015 Fashion Show: The Images, The Rumors, The Controversy

Another year, another Victoria’s Secret event taping happened last night for what will air on December 8th as the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show: it’s just amazing how time flies and how brilliant marketing policies place this particular show in the year’s (commercially speaking)

Months of preparations, weeks of starvation, days of excitement, hours of post-processing will undoubtedly produce yet a magnificent show for television! Feathers and lace, sequins and glitter, how much of the legendary Victoria’s Secret shows designs are model-friendly, customer-friendly and how much is just smoke in tv mirrors? Let’s scroll down and find out!

4 Black Magic Sweaters To Warm Up This Season!

I’ve had my pink years and my purple years, now, as my minimalist fashion sense is controlling me, black and grey are definitely my wardrobe palette de coeur. Getting less colorful in my looks has left me with a lot of freedom when it comes to accessorizing. I love bold earrings, in funky colors. I love fancy belts and happy scarves, I love fancy nail art and unruly hairdos.

But I like my clothes on the monochromic side. So when I’m not wearing grey or a variation of greige, I’m definitely wearing black. From head to toes if I can, yes. If I wasn’t so clumsy to spill anything and everything on me, wearing black could’ve helped me be more wash-conscious!

5 Black Magic Sneakers You Need In Your Life!

A short, yet powerful love story for black sneakers took my heart by storm. Each time I make a fixation for a ‘fashion’ item, I search and search until I find the exact rendition of my dreams and then I stop and stare in complete and utter admiration until my admiration slowly fades into a need. To own and wear.

Today I’d like you to join me in staring. Perhaps get more ideas from you? Although this one is about night-black sneakers (Halloween oblige), I do confess I have just as strong obsession for grey and beige sneakers. However, should you search for these colors, you’ll easily notice they’re very rare. Especially the ones I wish for: solid grey or solid beige ones with no visible logo and matching soles (all grey, all beige respectively).

Confessions Of A Fashion Pretender

Should I send a message to my younger self, it would be: ‘Stop pretending! Live for and with yourself! Each and every day!’. My days of uncertainty agony have passed. My years of pathologic doubt are behind me. I only live for myself now. Finally!

That is not to say that I live alone! Au contraire! I’m happily married to the love of my life, we raise four madly restless, amazing children together and our suburban life includes a beautiful, loving, joyful dog always running on our wild green lawn, a parrot we found in our front yard a year ago and his lovely parrot girlfriend bought less than a month ago. I could go on, but I promised myself this one would be about fashion. Sort of…

Dare To Wear Iryna Limanska’s Clay Flowers Jewelry?

As Fall is setting in, the beautiful flimsy flower crowns get to rest waiting for next Spring. That gives us plenty of time to restock our floral headwear drawer and our summer jewelry box!

Today I’ll show you my latest find: in a beautiful Ukrainian corner of Paradise, Iryna Limanska is shaping cold clay in fairy-tale-esques flowers and figurines, jewelry and décor objects. Beautiful, delicate, artistic, her creations enchanted my inner bohemian enough so I can present you her work and ask my favorite question when it comes to indie designers: Dare To Wear?

What They Wear In Sicario: Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro

A rather uneasy movie (which makes it closer to reality than many others), Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario has enrolled a handful of extremely talented actors. Among them, Emily Blunt is not only the sole female main character of the movie (and one of the very few women who appear in this motion flick) but also a particularly interesting one.

She’s been on a strong-woman-part spree, something that also suits her and the industry. She may lack Demi Moore’s unspeakable appeal, but Emily Blunt sure is today’s action movie shero! Enough with the brushing already, I’m sure we’ll see more of her in the future – I wanted to emphasize the surprise appearance of a brand I hold dearly in my wardrobe and my preferences – Palladium. Emily Blunt’s Sicario character, Kate Macer, is wearing Palladium Baggy boots!

Spring Summer 2016 Festival Chic With Saint Laurent

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.
