The "Oscars of fashion" took place last night. Considering that it's an event which recognizes and celebrates the talent, creativity and hard work that goes into fashion and its design, you'd think that the fashion would be, well, grand, inspiring, fabulous, exhilarating, dramatic, we can go on and on. But no. It seized to impress me. Still, I was able to choose my favorite gal of the night- and no, it's not Betsey Johnson (although I do love her personality).
With her undisputable talent for all things embroidery, Olympia Le-Tan has started a whole new kind of book club. Meticulously made entirely by hand, these adorable book clutches have become sort of an obsession and must-have in the fashion scene. They are witty and fun, and when not used as arm candy, they'll look just as stylish sitting on your coffee table or nightstand. Not to mention, they can be incredibly addictive to collect- which, I might add, may not be very healthy for your bank account.
Bold? Yes. Daring? Definitely. Haute? Sure. Trendy? Apparently. Chic? Debatable. The black & white vertically striped pants is one trend you will not see me wearing, like, ever!
I admit it, I'm having a major girl crush. Not only is Mrs. Timberlake absolutely drop-dead GORGEOUS (look at that body!), she also has a style to kill. Her Red Carpet choices are flawless nearly every time. However, it's not her glammed-up, couture ensembles that I've been crushing on...it's her casual, relaxed, hip and always feminine everyday fashion that has intrigued me as of late.
Fashion Week in São Paulo has to be the biggest in all of Latin & South America. Just as New York and Europe do for countries around the world, each year, the Spring/Summer Collections shown in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo help set the summer fashion trends here in Latin America. I mean, if there's a country that understands what a summer lifestyle requires, it's Brazil. Brazilians LIVE for summer and the beach.
Spring is finally here! And to celebrate my favorite season of the year, I've decided to talk about one of the hottest spring trends of 2013: Florals! What better print to get us in the mood for this bright and colorful season?
After months of blacks, browns, burgundy, grays and heavy, thick fabrics, it's time to uplift our spirits and welcome brighter, happier colors into our lives. It's amazing how revived we feel when we put away our gloomy winter clothes and take out our lighter, fresher and colorful spring (and summer) wardrobe.
I love Anthropologie, the entire concept of the store makes me smile. From their charming home accessories to their colorful and fun jewelry, it's hard to walk out of there empty handed. And now with their "Away We Go: Thailand" video, they've managed to conquer my heart yet again. Their newest collection is simply gorgeous, and the destination they've chosen, well, couldn't be more perfect! Talk about nostalgia!
Although its name inspires fun nights out, its compact size, witty and diverse colors, flirtatious tassel, adjustable cross-body strap and sportive design make the "Gucci Soho Disco Bag" the perfect bag for strolling around on beautiful Spring days.
The Soho Disco Bag may be small, but bigger isn't always better- especially on days when you need or want to feel lighter, free to walk around town for hours without the burden of carrying the weight on your shoulders or arms.
There's no denying it, lace was everywhere in the Spring 2013 fashion shows. Either as an accent or as the main attraction, this super feminine and delicate fabric is a must-have for this upcoming season- again.
Who watched the Oscars last night? Well, I can FINALLY say that I did!! Luckily, I was able to get home just in time to watch it from start to finish (good Lord, was it a long show!). I'll admit, though, I completely missed the red carpet coverage. So I can't say that I saw too much of the fashion- only of those who appeared throughout the show (thus the reason for my short list!).
