Yesterday was the birthday of one of the most fascinating icons of the fashion world and -of course- we would never miss the chance to honour her 131st bithday in our very simple yet with much love way: Happy birthday, mademoiselle Chanel!

Our skin is our body’s largest organ. It is our first line of defense, the first barrier to fight illness and a passageway to our bloodstream. It works so well that we often neglect it: we either don’t treat our skin as it should be treated or we don’t understand it’s signs.
Your skin is a barometer for your body’s health. Check out what its simple daily signs are trying to tell you: Continue reading →
We all know that Olivia Palermo has a great style, so when I heard about her shoe collection for Aquazzura I knew she would ace it! Now that the photos of her collection are out, we can say that: She has outdone herself! She has created six awesome styles: thigh high boots, strappy/jewell/ gladiator sandals, pumps and booties.
“Olivia basically has been our unofficial ambassador, she’s always wearing the shoes. We’re friends and we were talking more than a year ago about a small capsule that would be Olivia’s eye and aesthetic but with the Aquazzura style.” Edgardo Osorio, the brand’s designer.
All of her shoes fit perfectly into her own chic aesthetic… Ps: Price range from$600 to $1,625

Half Hollywood is crazy about crop-top and high-waisted midi-skirt! They are like the new look or better said, the trendsetter’s twin-set :).

Autumn will arrive soon and the colder the weather the more we see fur in the spot lights of fashion shows (according to the moto: “the colder the weather the warmer the mink”). And this year was not different.
Fur has never played any role in my life and it is something you will not find in my wardrobe. I grew up listening to my mom’s speach on how cruel it is to kill an animal just because it is beautiful – it was sometimes disturbing but I’m glad she did it.
In the country where I live, fur is seen as something grannies wear. So, young people usually go for faux fur… but how to make sure that your fur is faux, “faux sure”? Continue reading →
Women and shoes! For some men this relatioship is sometimes incomprehensible, for most women it is life changing… or have you never felt better or happier after buying a nice pair of shoes?!
And guys, just for our defence: What would you expect? Whilst kids, we listened to Cinderella stories and as teenies we got to watch Sex and the City and the AMAZING Carrie… If loving shoes is a crime, I plead guilty and I’m looking at a life without parole!
Okay, okay, before I start talking too much about my love for shoes, let’s get started and take a look at a few autumn 2014 shoe trends. Here we go!!
