On My Way...

I'll soon be where I need to be. In the meantime, please bare with me. The road is really long, and sometimes  bumpy, but I'll do my best to reach my destination as soon as possible. Sometimes, things can be overwhelming and uncontrollable, but that's no reason to give up your dreams, right? That's why I'm NOT closing this blog down. I'm still alive, and whoever is alive dreams. Some people dream more than others, but by now you should know that I amd a big dreamer. I hope that you'll understand that I need to go through endless roads and choose between different paths. Everyone has to go through that sometime in their life. Don't worry, I'm on my way of coming back to the blogging world. I'm not sure how long it will last, only time will tell...

PFW fw 2011-2012: The Forest of Monsieur Lagerfeld.

This is one of the shows I always anticipate during PFW and it never lets me down! Can you guess which one it is? I'll give you two hints. It was inspired by the German artist Caspar David Friedrich and the designer is no one else but Karl Lagerfeld. Well, I think no more hints are needed. 
Don't you just love the shadowy palette?

MFW Highlight: "Every Woman Has a Star"

Even though Milan Fashion Week ended a few days ago, and Paris Fashion Week has already started, I'm still daydreaming with the stars that invaded the catwalks of Dolce&Gabbana's show.  "Every woman has a star" said Steffano Gabbana backstage, and the truth is that is something that I have always believed in. 
The stars weren't the only thing that made me fall in love with the collection. The accesories, sparkles, blazers, and the touch of lace that never misses any of their show, played a major role as well. Not to talk about the mood of masculine vs. feminine looks which was the main focus of the collection. The only thing that I have to mention is that there sometimes were too many sparkles for my taste, but I guess that was done to emphasize the proganists of the show (aka the stars) and to add a touch of femininity. Overall, I found that this collection makes two very opposite looks work together by adding a touch of magic. I hope that next season my life will be full of stars. And if you haven't found yours, look for it because it's somewhere up there in the sky. This wasn't only a spectacular show, and one of my personal favorites for a while, but it was also a show wich had a message that we can all learn from.

What do you think about the whole masculinity vs. feminity concept of the show? Do you think that tom boy outfits are the new symbol of femininity?

P.S: Sorry for the lack of posts, but lately I have been really bussy. I hope to be less bussy in the future so that I can really get back to blogging as I used to before. Thanks for the people who still leave those wonderful comments, they really cheer me up!

LFW: Burberry Prorsum Fall 2011

Although I am not a big fan of LFW, I always look forward to the Burberry Prorsum show. For me, Burberry Prorsum is like the icing on top of the cake of LFW.  Even though Christopher Bailey showed his Fall 2011 collection to the world on Moday 21st February, I thought it was still worth it to share it with you.  As many of you know the show was live streaming on to more than 140 countries through iPads and iPhones, the official website and not to mention some blogs like Style Scrapbook. If you didn't get the chance to watch it here are some pictures that will get you caught up with what Burberry planned for next season.

A touch of color can make the grey fall days seem a lot brighter, right?
Fur will be our best friend for Fall 2011. And the best is that you can mix it with other materials. I found that very interesting.

That military jacket is to die for and the black and white outfit can never go out of style.
The "dalmatian hats" above bring a twist to the outfits. What do you think about them?

I love these transparent plastic cape raincoats. I think they might be the next must-have of the season. Just like the aviator jackets for Fall 2010.

NYFW Fall-Winter 201: Wrap-up

Alexander Wang


Marc Jacobs

Michael Kors

Jason Wu

Proenza Schouler

NYFW never stops bringing surprises season after season. I'm always amazed to see the different styles that one can find in the Big Apple. From Michael Kors' all American girls to Rodarte's prairie girls and Marc Jacobs dots, everything was different but they all had that "New York feeling" in them. 
What can I say? I'll let the pictures tell you what my favorite moments were, not just in the runway but outside the runway as well.

What were your favorite moments from NYFW?

A long time...

I know that it has been a long time  an extremely long time since my last post. Lately, I haven't been able to access the internet constantly and as every blogger knows the internet is absolutely necesary. It's just like a cake, if you don't have flour you can't bake it, right? 
Well, my conditions haven't allowed me to blog very often either. I know I should have warned you sooner  but , as you may have noticed, I'm taking a break from blogging.

I hope I'll be back soon with lots of inspiration and new posts.

Thank you for your support.

Vintage, Please?

I love how fashion can sometimes be timeless and  appealing to people a few decades later. That's why vintage photographs can never should alway be kept in a special inspiration folder in everyone's computer.

That beaded dress that Twiggy is wearing is a work of art, don't you think? 

Red lipstick,  the kitten flick, arched eyebrows, and a chic hat make this look effortlessly stylish.

Audrey Hepburn seems to pull off the tomboy look quite well, right?

A simple stripped tee for a sunny day at the beach. It somehow reminds me to Coco Chanel. 
I've never wrapped a scarf around my head but this is encouraging me to.

I never thought a simple cut out could make a dress so elegant.

Simple and chic... very Audrey Hepburn indeed.

What do you think about this lovely playsuit for a sunny day at the beach?
