SPRING GROCERIES, part 2

groceries

As promised, I am back with another one of our Spring Groceries posts, it’s the second from a three-part series. Dressing up casually or for an evening out is relatively easy. Almost every day, women ask themselves the same question: “What am I supposed to wear today?” And then comes the next statement: “I have absolutely nothing to wear (even though the closet is packed with clothes)”. Having your off-duty and on duty basics is what will save you from arriving late to dinner after you put on your entire closet and ended up with the first thing you tried on. They will save you from arriving late to work because your alarm didn’t go off and you didn’t have a last minute savior, the garment you know you can pair with almost anything and whip up a great look. This reasons are reasons enough for me to put together a Spring 2013 Off-duty, On duty basics. Check them out and cross out those you already have. Let’s begin!

on dutyDrinks with friends, a first date, a family dinner, a night out with the colleagues, our lives are filled with things to do and places to be. And there are times where those skinny jeans and your high-tops just won’t do. For a dressier occasion, there is always the basic garment you just can’t live without. Forget about the boring black blazer or the black stiletto pumps, this Spring  the “on duty” garments are more unexpected than expected:

  1. Warrior heels: They are sexy and they have that “good girl gone bad” vibe. Men love them and they have the power of sexing-up anything you are wearing. Brian Atwood is responsible for this two-toned beauties.
  2. Minimal culotte: With a sweatshirt, with a shirt and a blazer, with a tee, with a leather top, possibilities are endless. This pair is from Zara and is already a blogger favorite.
  3. The detailed button-down: Leave your white shirt for work or an off-duty day. When going out, printed, embroidered or embellished blouses are the way to go. Feeling a little edgy? Match them to crazy prints and killer heels. This beauty is from Marni.
  4. The black envelope: If you don’t have one already, start saving up! Black envelope clutches are perfect for when having to make a day outfit a little dressier for the night. Marni also made this black number.
  5. The evening slipper: How many times have you wanted to ditch the heels for a night but you don’t have another option that goes with your evening ensemble. A pair of embroidered slippers or leopard ones (Charlotte Olympia’s kittens are a dreamboat) will save your life and your outfit!
  6. The monochromatic trousers: Black and white is a classic that never goes out of style. This season, with the Beetlejuice stripes everywhere, options are endless. You can go for the whole Balmain style striped jeans or off-white trousers with black details.
  7. The new LBD: Forget about your tailored, simple frock. Go for a detailed one: textures, lace, ruffles, leather, your choice. Victoria Beckham is a master when it comes to reworking the famous LBD.
  8. The double-breasted waistcoat: Forget about the black blazer, each time you want to add a tailored piece to you ensemble, go for the waistcoat. Oh yeah, the vest is the new blazer. Waistcoat, Zara.
  9. Statement skirt: I like them flouncy, but you can go pencil, a-line or bodycon. Just pick a print that’s bold, but not flashy enough. Remember, basics are meant to go with everything. Skirt, Zara
  10. Naked black heels: There’s nothing sexier than pedicured feet (please, when wearing this, a pedicure, moisturizer and a good scrub is mandatory) in a pair of barely there heels. Have always a black pair with you, it will come in handy when you least expect it! Heels, Zara
  11. The evening bomber: Need to cover up for a windy Spring night? Leave your biker at home and switch to an evening bomber. Don’t think varsity, you can now find them in silk, lace, leather, even beautiful prints. This baby is from DKNY.

OFF DUTY

Dressing up for a casual day can be more difficult than it seems, save yourself the trouble and check this list. You should (ok, if you want to) have all this items inside your closet at all times, clean, ironed and ready to wear. You never know when you’ll need them!

  1. The army tee: Even if you are not keen on camo, this baby with a pair of cut-offs, some skinny jeans or even a leather skirt can be a total life saver. Tee, Current Elliot
  2. Casual ruffles: This is a boho chic skirt, but you can give it the twist you want with the right choice of top. A long sweater with some boots for a more relaxed and comfy style. A tee and some sneakers or a leather jacket for some edge?
  3. The denim shirt: Always a basic, always comes in handy and with the denim trend this season, even more so. This beauty is from Dsquared.
  4. The cool aviators: I’ve always been a Ray Ban kind of gal, but with all the designers embracing this shape, possibilities are endless. For a touch of glamour, go for gold frames.
  5. White and distressed: Blue jeans are not as exciting as white ones. Add some rough patches and a great fit, you’ve got a winning combo. You can wear them at night with a cool top, for the day with a tee and a bomber.
  6. The off-duty tunic: Days where you don’t want to think and pair garments happen to all of us. That’s when the off duty tunic comes in: throw a pair of flat gladiators, a messenger bag and a denim jacket and you are good to go! Tunic, Zara
  7. The gray pullover: Sweatshirts have take over the word thanks to the genius Nicolas Ghesquiere and a gray one is the one that has proved more resourceful.
  8. The beaded jacket: You might think of this baby as more of an evening garment, but trust me, a white tank and some distressed skinnies with some barely there flats is pure bliss. You’ll be comfy, you’ll be well dressed and you’ll survive the heat.
  9. The Becketts: They are the originals, and trust me, they are worth the splurge. Isabel Marant is to blame for this babies and they are not going anywhere anytime soon. If you wanna save up, look for an alternative, not a clone. Adidas high-tops are to die for and affordable. CLICK HERE to take a look.
  10. Camel lace-ups: Sexy, off-duty or on duty depending what you pair them with, perfect for Spring and Summer. With jeans, with a boho dress, with shorts, with everything! Really, go, buy them, NOW! This wonders are from Rebecca Minkoff.

There you go, more staples for your Spring closet! One more to go and we will move on to how to wear them!

Have a beautiful weekend,

Sweet kisses…

Spring 2013 Trends: THE GOOD GIRL

the good girl

Good morning, my sweet readers! This is the last post (for now) before we put our Spring Trends guide on hiatus, and you know why… Fashion week is just two days away and our coverage is ready to start! In the meantime, I have a trend that’s cute as a button and dressy as dressy can get. As I kid, I had two favorite cartoons: Babar and Madeline. Little did I know that I would grow up to be the ultimate francophile. When I individuated the Good Girl trend from the Spring 2013 runways, I new I had to go with a grown-up Madeline illustration. I would kill for Madeline’s cape/coat, I might make myself one!

Back to what concerns us today, the good girl trend is very different from the ladylike style. Is has the same vibe, but it’s younger, it’s more playful and of course, flirtier. Flared garments, pussybows, ruffles and golden buttons are all part of the good girl’s closet and even if you have dubbed yourself a tough chick, you can still dress up like a good gal.

WHO DID IT:

  • Marc Jacobs / Victoria Beckham / Carven
  • Sass & Bide / Burberry Prorsum / Giles

MUST-HAVE PIECES: A skater dress or a ruffled hem one. A flared and flirty skirt in a bold color. Polka dot trousers or pants with a soft print. A structured jacket with golden buttons. A pussybow blouse.

SPRING 2013 TRENDS: Palate Cleansers

PALATE COVERAlmost Friday, my sweet readers! Spring is almost here (at least that’s what I keep telling myself, the hope of Spring helps me bear this cold and cruel weather) and with it, new trends, new styles and new items to buy for our seasonal wardrobe. I know, the Zara coats and boots on sale are tempting, but you ought to start thinking about the coming season (also my favorite of them all). We long for sunny days, where a lightweight jacket is all you need, where our legs are not concealed inside a sticky pair of stockings. We long for days where our bare arms and legs can run wild and free (mine will definitely be pasty, Casper pasty). We long for Spring, we need it, we want it and we want it NOW! But since we can’t mess with the seasons and global warming, we can start by taking all that Spring fashion in while we wait for flowers to bloom and for those trees to grow back their leaves.

Last post was all about optical illusion, about a strong and head-turning trend: the stripes. It’s only fair that now we take on its complete opposite: the palate cleansers. Fall 2012 was all about baroque, strong prints (they are still around, thank God), textures and bold colors. For Spring and to detox a bit from all the madness, designers have given us the palate cleansers: neutral solids. Whether you put together a total look with these beautiful neutrals or use only one solid to tone down your outfit, you are going to be needing a lot of beige, blush and white in your life (at least this coming season).

WHO DID IT:

  • Christopher Kane / Helmut Lang / Victoria Beckham
  • Theyskens’ Theory /Jill Stuart / Mulberry

THE MUST-HAVE PIECES: A white bomber, the bomber is the new biker (don’t dare disagree with this bomber lover). A clean and cute dress, LITTLE NUDE DRESS? Sign me in! a pair of nude flats, you’ll wear them out before the season’s over. Last but not least, a wide range of button-downs: baby pink, white, cream, eggshell, blush, beige (you can never have enough of this babies).

Below you’ll find a steal/splurge selection of gorgeous palate cleansers! Keep on scrolling!

SPLURGE PALATE

  1. Blouse, The Row
  2. Shorts, Pinko
  3. Jacket, Maiyet
  4. Skirt, Alexander McQueen
  5. Dress, Theyskens’ Theory
  6. Sunglasses, Alexander Wang
  7. Pants, Vanessa Bruno
  8. Oxford shoes, Robert Clergerie
  9. Bag, Proenza Schouler
  10. Heels, Alexander Wang

NYFW COVERAGE: A birdcage never looked so pretty…

Good Tuesday, my sweet readers! Only three days left and it will be a wrap for NYFW. Thankfully, we still have London, my Milan and Paris. This is our third “runway reviews” post and so far, I couldn’t be more delighted with the Spring 2013 collections. Today I have for you an interesting mix: nature-loving Thakoon, a more mature and fabulous Posh Spice, Tibi’s nonchalant chic, Derek Lam’s texture parade and 3.1 Phillip Lim’s eclectic charm. Now, before I say too much, let’s get this thing started!

THAKOON SPRING 2013

Faithful to his origins, Thakoon always adds that special spice to his shows. His Spring 2013 collection was no exception. Clearly inspired by nature (Spring screams for beautiful flowers and birds), the designer sent out the runway a mix of lively prints, beautiful layers, an interesting texture mash-up and a color palette so diverse it only made things more interesting. Spotted: sky blue makes an appearance, again. As for the trends: sheer madness, jacquard, lace appliques, flared skirts and peplums. What’s not to love?

The most interesting and beautiful thing: birdcages took the form of dresses for his opening looks. Another thing we loved? The wallflower print jumpers with the transparent detail. For the shoes, thick double strap shoes (big accessory trend so far). Overall, it was feminine, sweet, romantic and garden-inspired (I love all things garden-inspired). To me, Thakoon really captured what Spring should feel and look like.

VICTORIA BECKHAM SPRING 2013

If she keeps this going, she might become the next best thing. Sure, she is a singer turned designer, lucky enough to have England’s resident hunk as a husband. That always helps steal the spotlight! But Victoria Beckham has proved to be more than a celebrity with a budget (think Jessica Simpson and her Louboutin knock-off “designs”), she has creativity, drive and talent (whether she is behind the line or there is someone else, we are so buying the whole act). For her Spring 2013 show, she concentrated more on the details than on the colors. No prints and a four-color palette: poppy red, black, nude and white. Clean silhouettes, perfectly tailored shapes, lingerie inserts, flared skirts (big trend alert) and the nude booties were among the elements she presented on the runway. It was effortless chic all the way. Big kudos to Vic, she really killed it this time!

TIBI SPRING 2013

Tibi is the ultimate indulgence for the cool kids out there, think blogger Aimee Song with her cropped skinny jeans, ankle-strap, barely there sandals and killer set of pins. Amy Smilovic kept prints to a minimum this time, it was all about the leather, the color blocks, the leg-flashing garments, the perforated details and the flared skirts. Doing what she does best, it was street chic all the way. Expect pieces of this collection all over the blog scene next season, not only because it’s fabulous, but because it’s more affordable than that $5,000 Balmain jacket we constantly weep for. The highlight: how she worked that pink and yellow with the rest of the muted colors.

DEREK LAM SPRING 2013

Call it the clash of the textures, that’s Derek Lam’s Spring 2013 show. With a color palette so lively and diverse (mustard, crimson, bright blue, bright yellow) and bold shapes and details, the designer managed to make a strong statement on the runway. Far from his California-inspired Spring 2012 collection, Lam gave this one a Fall feeling. He paired up detailed pencil skirts with oversize, sleeveless sweatshirts (my favorite part of the show). His Spring trench coat will be among the coveted items for next season and his printed shifts will definitely follow behind. It was an easy to wear and sporty-chic collection. Everyone will be wanting a piece of that, for sure!

3.1 PHILLIP LIM SPRING 2013

Perhaps one of the most interesting collections so far, different from anything we’ve seen from Phillip Lim before and with so many elements to take in at the same time. From the delightful micro-floral print to the game of textures, it was complexity at its best. Inspired by Dada-ism and its influences, the collection had that rocker chic vibe with a touch of grunge.

Layers, inserts, sheer details, built-in garments, print mash-ups, texture mix merged, resulting in total careless chic. My favorite part: the I heart Nueva York t-shirt and the sweater, floral bomber he paired up with a tee and a skirt. For the shoes, as eclectic as the rest of the collection. It was unexpected, but in a good way (a great one, if you ask me).

LOOK OF THE DAY

The thing I love about the army jacket trend, is that I get to girlify it as much as I want. What better way to play with it than by pairing it up with a lace dress with floral details. It may sound weird, but it seems to work. To add another twist, lace-up shoes are the perfect match. For accessories, keep it simple and golden. What do you think?

For all the details on today’s look, go to FASHIOLISTA

It’s a wrap for today! 15 reviews down, and so many to go! The Spring 2013 runways are in full bloom and we couldn’t be more excited. Be sure to check back for more new fashion, trends and more! Remember, the Seven Deadly Sins: blogger edition will return soon!

Sweet kisses…

SUMMER GETAWAYS 2012: The Jet-set Junkie (beachwear)

Greetings from Mexico City, my sweet readers! Summer is sizzlin’ and what better way to kick off our Getaways series than with the beachwear round (if you still have no clue what the Summer Getaways series is all about, please click HERE). We are starting this one with our lovely and snobbish Pearl, the Jet-set Junkie. So if you are the kind of girl that needs some outfit ideas for a day at the beach club, sipping some Dom, I whipped this up just for you!

This beach babe is all about the glitz and glamour. Nothing’s more glamourous and glitzy than mixing white with metallic shades and textures. An embellished kaftan or kimono can be the perfect item to make you stand out from the crowd.

  • Look for white bikinis with golden trim or with a silver detail (beware, white swimwear can betray you when wet).
  • Kimonos are great beach companions, you get to wear a cover-up and still show your bikini.
  • Detailed sandals are the way to go: chained, studded, embellished (just choose a delicate pair)
  • Keep your mani/pedi as neutral as possible.
  • For the glamour touch, square or round frame sunnies

WHAT PEARL’S WEARING

That’s it for our glam beach girl, tomorrow we will visit Jaime, the Party Girl! Be sure to check back!

Sweet kisses…

PS: NYC is two weeks away!

The Daily Fashion Bread: July 12, 2011

Hello my sweet readers! After a 5 day pause (I’m so sorry about that) I am back to bring you some freshly baked bread! And since the fashion industry doesn’t stop, even if I am on holiday, here are some highlights.

  • Armani underwear goes bad Hollywood bombshell, Megan Fox, has been replaced! The italian designer has chosen a bad girl as the new spokesperson for the underwear and jeans ad campaigns. With the distinguished Victoria Beckham as his first choice a few years ago and the world’s hottest woman, Miss Fox as his second one, Mr. Armani is spicing things up a bit this year. Rihanna, well known for her daring fashion, risquè outfits and rauchy performances, has already shot the ads that are set to come out this September. Brace yourselfs for some wild photos, sexy poses and a touch of porn. Thank God those ads will be black & white, I’m kind of sick of her channeling Bozo the Clown.

  • Kenzo and Antonio Marras parts ways The LVMH group announced today that the italian designer is to be replaced with retail duo, Humberto de Leon and Carol Lim. The pair behind the store Opening Ceremony were chosen in an attempt to refresh the brand. Opening Ceremony has had major success since the opening in 2002. Antonio Marrras was creative director of the brand for 8 years and has his own brand. Little do we know about his future, but the rumors are starting to say he could be the next head designer at Dior.
  • Mariacarla is on fire The 30 year old italian is better than ever and at the top of her modeling game. At that age, usually modeling careers are over or about to end. But for Mariacarla Boscono, this is not the case. It’s well-known that she is Riccardo Tisci’s muse. But for this season, she seems to be everyone’s favorite girl. We will be seeing her as one of the faces of Givenchy this fall, along with Naomi Campbell and Natalia Vodianova, as the star of Loewe’s glamorous and a bit raw campaign, and with Natasha Poly and Karen Elson for the always dramatic, Roberto Cavalli.
  • Swanepoel is definitely high fashion We know her for her Victoria’s Secret’s wings and some other catwalk now and then. But for this coming season, Candice is the face of the man of the hour (every hour that is), Tom Ford. Shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, the South African beauty showcases a sexy, fierce, glamorous woman. The shots are brigh with color, glossy and with a touch of drama. For the gentleman, Tom has given us the gorgeous Jon Kortajarena, looking slick, sophisiticated and cool.
  • Balenciaga Fall/Winter Campaign Now this is a first! Nicolas Ghesquière has released a backstage video of his new ad campaign, featuring models Liya Kebede, Liisa Winkler, and Julia Nobis. It was shot by Steven Meisel, who has been very busy this year. Click here to see the video.
  • Hermione Granger’s last red carpet This is the last we’ll see of the Harry Potter character, certainly we will be seeing a lot more of the british beauty, Emma Watson. For the New York premiere of the film, Emma chose a daring and interesting Bottega Veneta gown. Not a safe choice, but definitely Miss Granger really pulled it off, as always.
Check back tomorrow for some Haute Couture
Sweet kisses…

The Daily Fashion Bread: July 1, 2011

Finally Friday! Lots of things happening this weekend, sales are starting, Prince Albert is marrying Charlene, Kate Moss is tying the knot as we speak, and 4th of July is just around the corner. In the meantime, here is your piece of hot and fashionable bread!Mr. and Mrs. Jaime Hince. A few moments ago, the Royal Wedding of fashion took place. Iconic Kate Moss married rocker Jaime Hince. The supermodel wore a stunning dress made by John Galliano, as it was expected, with a pair of shoes from Manolo Blahnik. The bride looked gorgeous and natural (at least one Kate exceeded my expectations). The Groom was wearing YSL, as was his best man/woman, the fabulous Alison Mossheart. The guests included Anna Wintour, Naomi Campbell and Stella McCartney. It’s nice to hear John Galliano’s name again linked to a dress and not to the words court or racism.

  • Fall sneak peek. As the summer season is passing by, the fall campaigns are starting to surface. This week it was Givenchy’s turn, showing legendary model, Naomi Campbell, doing some snarling. Campbell, along with Natalia Vodianova, Kristen McMenamy and Mariacarla Boscono are looking fierce, perfect for Riccardo Tisci’s Pantera mode. WATCH THE MAKING OF HERE  Then we have Chanel’s leaked images, where we can appreciate the fabulous Freja Beha Erichsen channeling a cat. The model was styled by the amazing Carine Roitfeld and shot by the Kaiser himself. We are seeing a lot of wilderness for the coming season, Are you feeling the feline vibe? And last but not least, True Grit’s acting prodigy, Hailee Steinfeld as the star of Miu Miu’s new campaign. The first ads were realeased this week. Shot by Bruce Weber, the young actress looks lovely and chic for the italian brand. Makeup and styling looking not a day over 14. Nice!

  • Victoria Beckham is always news. But this time it’s not about Victoria the mom, but about the fashion designer. Ater the great success of her main line, the former spice girl has just announced the birth of her second and slightly cheaper brand, Victoria by Victoria Beckham. The collection, set to be released for Spring 2012, is very different from her usual creations. Girlier and brighter, she took inspiration from the cartoon character, Emily the Strange. With a bit of a 1960’s vibe, Victoria is also targeting younger costumers. We’ll see how it plays out. Will you be buying?

  • Vogue Italia’s Franca Sozzani does it again “I dislike men in fashion. I don’t like it when a man dresses as a fashionista. I don’t think it’s attractive at all. Women in fashion, on the other hand, are very attractive. Women can always make you dream.” It’s not the first time the italian editor stris controversy, first with her strong opinions about fashion bloggers, now against men who dress fashionably. She likes to spice things up every once in a while.
  • Former Vogue Russia’s editor gets new gig.With billionaire Vladislav Doronin, also known as Naomi Campbell’s boyfriend and Bernard Runge as investors, Aliona Doletsakaya will be launching Interview magazine Germany and Russia by the end of 2012.
Sweet kisses…
