This was such a great experience working for this international company.

Thanks to my best friend who helped me get that job and I will always remember my ZARA family!

The new "black"

Ok so fall is here and when you think about autumn, what colours pop into your mind?
Yes warm tones, such as brown, beige, orange, yellow & red. But there is one that shines the most this year:


Yes indeed you probably may have seen it on clothes and accessories. ZARA (clothing store) for example carry a large amount of maroon shades as well as other stores such as Urban Planet, H&M and Club Monaco.

The cerise looking tones is more unisex. Women but also men tend to wear clothes that is blood coloured. 

So it is really a good fit for both genders.

Using neutral tones will make this vintage wine look stand out more. You don't want to much diversion as it is enough itself.

In november we need to go to darker, warmer shades as it is getting more cold.

Here is how to make your own clutch: DIY Fashion, Neon Lace Clutch, Fab Flash

C'est tres "lady-chic"

Yes I am going to talk about accessories today.
What is the best way to dress up elegant and classy just to add up a little something, something to your outfit?

It 's the CLUTCH

These sophisticated pieces have been a lady's best friend over the decade. It's mainly small enough to carry your needs if you plan to attend any night life events. The origin comes from the Victorian era. It helped women to simplify their lives by only carrying what's only needed (make-up, tissues, compact mirror...)

Ornated clutch where you can insert your fingers. Very trendy and useful this year. Can be found at "Town Shoes" or on the shopping website "ASOS"

Some of us like to play it match-matchy by associating the same fabric with the clothes or choosing another material such as:


Nowdays, using cellphones, wallet and other utilities require much more space. Yet we are still going for clutches when it comes to night outs. It's simple, discrete and can be glamorous at times. 

You will mostly see these garnements without shoulder stripes (an option). It is seen on red carpets, galas, fashion shows, royalty events and proms.

After all, don't you all want to feel like a Princess?! I know I do!

Skulls for fashion

October has arrived and what can I say, the best season to be dressed is obviously fall. This month is perfect for trench coats, combats boots, leather jackets, ankle boots, leggings, scarves. But there is
this one trend who still has a huge impact in the fashion industry which is...

The young generation are attracted by this type of prints, that have been seen in the streets, fashion shows, accessories such as shoes and scarves but mainly clothes.

In the early 90's skulls didn't have as much impact as now.
As of today we have a different vision of it and more people tend to follow this "new trend"

Some of these accessories will give you this ''edgy punk look''.
Well why not accentuate your style don't dress up too... how should I say that...

The Minnie Mouse icon

This season, the press is mentioning it, talking about it, it's all over. I am talking about the "Minnie Mouse wanna be".

This is an homage to the world wide known icon. Many designers stepped up by creating different pieces related to the Disney face.

Here is a list of the designers:

-Michael Van der Ham
-Richard Nicole
-Piers Akinson
-Husam El Odeh

in collaboration with

-Luke Hersheson
-Katie Hillier
-Lulu Guinesss
-Tatty Devine
-Terry de Havilland

Minnie was born in the 1920's precisely 1928. Her look inspired many of us. Her bow, her polka dots and graphic colors is found everywhere and for all ages (hair style included!) 

There was a fashion show in London called :
"The Minnie Mouse must-haves". The purpose of that show was to collect the money for a program named Bazaar fashion art foundation.

I, myself own a Minnie mouse sweater and I feel like all my childhood memories are coming back!
I've always been a Minnie Mouse fan and will always be!

This is my next portfolio for a street urban look...

A "kitsch look" what does it mean?

The word "kitsch" is actually a german word, which represent a form of art mostly "tasteless", as often described. Most of the people use massive objects and make them look "cheap".

This term started in Munich between the 1860's-1870's. As you can observe "kitsch" in English would be translated as "sketch" (for example: paintings). It's an idea that represent something.

What I am trying to explain is that a "kitsch look" would be a form of art, that looks mostly messy but fancy at the same time. Like an unfinished product that still have that beautiful look.

Enough about the writings more about the explanation through the pictures

This look goes more for a "catch eye" look. It's all about bright colors, mix colors and crazy looks. Some can be extreme some discrete (rare). How can you not perceive when someone dresses up like this?!


One nation known for that type of style are the Japanese. Traveling there and seeing their audacity being put into fashion gave me chills. And I admire them for that.

 [magazine Vogue Japan fall / winter 2012-2013]

Kitsch can be extravaganza. You will see all kind of fantasy prints. It's all about putting your creativity into it and not care what other people think.

Madonna would be a great example for it. She made a strong impact in the 90's as well, where you would see women in pink fluo leggings with yellow neon t-shirts. Let's not forget it's still in vogue as of right now. Proof?

Well with this new artist Rita Ora who is the perfect example.

I am done here with the history. Guys remember you don't want this season, meaning fall to be boring, make yourself shine from the rest of the crowd.

Oversized sweaters

Oversized sweaters are always great comfort for women as for men.
Beside feeling extremely good in them a lot of us like to make this garment fashionable in our own ways. 

Wether we buy wool or cotton, everyone has their own preferences right? September is around the corner or should I say tomorrow so get ready to change your wardrobe a little.

You can pretty much pair it up with leggings (best option) it gives you a taller silhouette, as well as a belt to give a shape or/ and boots. For men mostly with a pair of jeans or cotton pants for the fall.

Ladies don't hesitate to steal your dad's, brother's or boyfriend's sweater!

I would say that I am obsessed with them ever since. My advice? Wash them gently as they treat us gently too.

In the creamy nudes

Today's color trend is all about creams and nudes.
Those colors tend to give a feminine, "lady-chic" look.
It's simple, serene, straight forward, classy and chic. From younger women to older looks. This is a must!
