Dazzling details

All these hectic and chaotic days have made me realize and appreciate at a different level the small things that usually pass us buy.

It’s been very long since I have posted something on my blog unfortunate, but heard times need hard measures.  And all these hours in a day are not enough to cover all the work, and all the work sometimes takes your inspiration away. But enough with the bickering and let’s start with this brand new start. J

As I was saying all that small, sometimes too small to be notices, details have become the pick of my days. J

And considering the fact that fashion is the first thing I think about in the morning, you can just imagine how many details I’m looking for. But for today, I will talk about dazzling patterns on everything we wear.

Fashion advice of the day!

Put a bit of dazzling on one piece from your outfit. Below you can find some examples that will surely change your idea of a shopping spree.

Hiding from the world under a glam hat

I never was the kind to try my best to stand out of the crowd. As my mother taught me, it’s best to let the crown put you first then to force yourself into.

But sometimes, advices are made to be broken so last weekend I did, I have to admit this, tried some of my best to stand out. And, well for my surprise it actually works.

I’m not the kind to underestimate myself but I do believe that too much confidence can ruin a good person, and unfortunately I have many examples like this.

So, to a very cute and intimate event I put on the gala dress, the high heels and the all professional make up and stand up as the one that needs and will capture all the attention.

And because a glamour’s dress will never be perfect without the big, mysterious hat, I managed to take a small break for an on the street, stylish (from my point of view) photo shoot.

The results below:

Fashion advice of the day!

Do trust you mother for advices, even if they are a bit vintage for this days, the life and experiences made them see things from another perspective.

But, some days your gut might just be the best solution. And take that glam dress, high heel and wonder the street in the most elegant way possible, if you can manage to get a photographer with you even better! Oohhh and don’t forget the hat!

Perception is just a step!

I found an article today at one of my friends that I admire a lot, Macnetize, about one of those situations that affects poor people and most of us don’t know about. Yolanda Domínguez how is a Spanish artist that confronts passersby with disquieting urban actions that aim to generate social criticism and a reaction, has strake again.

I think that all of us have heard the horrible stories about how fashion brands have factories in poor country and are exploiting children for the good of their paychecks.

This activity is a result of a terrifying tragedy that took place in a factory in Bangladesh, where on the 24th of April the roof of various textile workshops collapsed and killed 1,127 workers.

Yolanda Domínguez, made an urban action, called “Fashion Victims” in Madrid inspired by the recent events in order to bring into the light of day the real “fashion victims”: the enslaved workers, child exploitation and the millions harmed by the poor conditions in the factories they are forced to work.

The idea was this: various bloggers appear buried under rubble in a one of the most fashionable street of Madrid, only some extremities with luxurious accessories (bags, shoes, and others) were felt outside in order to remind us of the images published from the tragedy in Bangladesh in which arms and legs stuck out from under the remains of the building.

Fashion advice of the day!

We can’t change overnight these conditions, not me or you or all of us!  But we can fire a warning, make people aware of the terrible ways those people work in, the exploitations the children and so on. Making people aware will raise actions, will make you wonder if your weekend shopping is worth someone’s life and will bring organizations to work together in order to change or improve things.

Yolanda Domínguez, started the fire but it’s up to us to keep it burning!

I do believe that all of this is an appeal for responsible production and consumption, both for people and the planet.

Admire the beauty!

Yes, I know it sound somehow stupid, but we don’t do that, most of the times. We pass by and forget in an instant how amazing that place, car, statue, sky, and sun is on that particular moment.

All of this because of our chaotic life that captures everything and keeps nothing close enough for us to remember many many times after.

Maybe these pictures might make you take a moment and enjoy!

Bury can do magic!

Days like yesterday should not be too many in a human’s life :))) but, you know that, the Murphy’s Law will force us to have over and over again the same type of hard, crazy, looong days.

Because of these day’s I haven’t managed to tell you about a really nice event, which took part last week. I know, its kind over dew, but may I tell you that is not!

It was a very relaxed event, in a place that I adore and that always makes me fell, somehow cool and hip (hahahaha).

The main idea was pretty funny, a guy by the name of Bury how invented some crazy devices that can open bottles of Grolsch in a second, to be exact 120 bottles of bear.

Then all the bear was available for the people in the pub, so yammy yammy for us!

Fashion advice of the day!

We are all very girlish and classy and all, but don’t does mean we can hold a bear in our hands! And the ones that haven’t done that buy now, should at list try, first of all because the taste is really good and second because the elegance and the style don’t not make us les human, it’s actually the contrary, the more human and normal you are the more elegant, graceful you look.

So, now that its Friday, go to a very nice/simple/cute/elegant place, order yourself what kind of bear you might desire and enjoy the benefits of being a woman that can play the role of a man. 🙂

Step into statement sandals!

Today I lost my self! In all the colors, the combinations, the patterns and the styles. Don’t even get me started on the heels, I simply LOVE heels, those big ones that give you all the confidence in the world.

So, it took me a while to look at every one of them and analyze every little detail. I know they are a little bit quirky and not wearable on a daily basis, but a girl can dream, right?!

These are my favorite:

Fashion advice of the day!

Try it and buy at list one pair of studded, yayoi patent leather, crystal-embellished, animal print, neon color, satin or any other ones that you know and been dreaming about it. Wear them with a lot of confidence and elegance, because they are as beautiful as you!

Now, if the heels scare you, here are some tricks that might come in handy:

  •  What is the place to break in your new heels? The supermarket! says Camilla Morton, author of How to Walk in High Heels. Get a cart and go for a spin. As you stock up on groceries, use the cart for balance while your feet get used to the new high heel.
  •  “Whenever and wherever you can, sit, sit, sit!,” says J. Alexander, the reigning diva of fancy footwork on America’s Next Top Model. “And cross your legs so that all can see your beautiful, fashion-forward, painful footwear. Think of yourself as a model on a photo shoot and stretch from the waist.” So don’t be afraid to give your tootsies a rest every now and then—you’ll last longer with breaks and give people a better view of your incredible shoes.
  •   When you buy a new pair of shoes, you need to customize them for your feet, says Meghan Cleary, a shoe expert and the author of The Perfect Fit: What Your Shoe Says About You.  You mostly feel it on the ball of your foot, because that’s where the pressure has been distributed. She recommends padding them up with Dr. Scholl’s Ball of Foot Cushions and Rub Relief Strips.
  • Walking in heels is not an easy task, even for us models who wear them almost every day, says model Ali Stephens. Make sure when you take a step you straighten and extend your leg—it’ll help you move gracefully and elegantly. Otherwise, you can look very uncoordinated, and your walk will appear choppy.
  • There is absolutely no substitute for knowing you look amazing in a pair of stilettos. All experts agree: You have to feel good and make it work! says model Ariel Meredith.  Don’t let the fear of stumbling keep you from owning these shoes, advises Ali Stephens, while Miss J. suggests you think of yourself as a model in attitude and presence, and Camilla Morton reminds us, When you wear high heels, you look good and you feel good!

Ipad with mango it’s so delicious!

I’ve been dreaming about it for a long time now, but unfortunately it was never on the shopping list on the month, till one day when I remember that I can ask someone for some help and in this way the dreamy thing might have a chance to become mine!

And I did it, ask for it, I’m that kind that asking for something make me feel needy and stupid an indebt, so I do hate to ask but the dreamy thing I have to say now that I was worth it.

Just 3 days letter, I brand new white Ipad, was in my hands ready to be filled with as many as possible fashion, magazines and trendy apps. Many nights did I spend updating and making account and learning new interesting things that could help or just have funnier my life.

Now after more than a week, the gadget it’s a normal part of my life, and I adore strolling through the catwalks and new fabulous collections with my perfect ice-cream, La Strada! I know, you know about it, and I know it’s everywhere but it really is delicious. The taste, the combinations of the flavors, and I’m that shallow to like or not, the packaging and this packaging it’s so cute and perfectly with what’s inside.

Fashion advice of the day!

Must-have fashion apps!

Me addictet to technology (hahaha) so me all about combining tech with fashion. Yes, weird combination but very used apparently, lately.

Starting from this idea, today I will show you how I use my precious technology to know all about fashion all the time. I’m really addicted so I have my precious apps that make every day perfect for shopping and learning new tricks. 😉

The most wanted, know and amazing apps, from my point of view, are:

Style.com

The popular website has created an app that focuses on runway coverage; users can view frequently-updated collection images and reviews. Easy scrolling makes the experience the next best thing to seeing a show live.

Snapette

Location-based shopping forms the genius of Snapette, an app that uses GPS info to help you discover what’s out there in the stores around you. Users take photos of items and tag them, and brands themselves can also upload products. The effect of this reverse showroom is to pull consumers down from the Internet cloud in to local retail stores.

This app has been praised for collating the best bits of Elle magazine for the iPad, rather than just replicating the whole printed edition. Again, it takes a long time to load, but it is image-rich and brings together rows and rows of images from the catwalks by theme and designer. It is simple to use, too.

Dancing in the rain.

Rainy Sundays for me are full of joy, that inexplicable joy that even if it’s really cold and you are completely wet, it’s still you know weekend, and Sunday and so many options for when the rain starts to poor down on the streets.

poza blog

Options like visiting luxury places for baptizing, driving like mad on the drizzling roads or the best it’s yet to come: eating in a cozy, nice, perfect to watch the rain place.

All this things I have done yesterday, on that rainy Sunday, and it was just what I need to end a very fun weekend!

The place, were watching the rain came perfectly is Shift. I know you know it and it wasn’t by far the first time I’ve been there, but it was the first all rainy experience. :)))

Candle light ornament and really good music, was what kept us from eating the table till the food, which was really rapid done, came to us.

About the food, what can I say except perfect and yammy and big (yesterday the hunger was enormous), more than just tasty! I do think that pictures, says it all in general, and here in particular.

Fashion advice of the day!

This rainy Sunday was perfect to take out my dark blue stilettos, for the first time on the town. Yes, I had to jump all the puddles made by the rain, but some good exercise never did any harm!

My advice is: go out on the rainy days, no laziness even its Sunday! Take that beautiful pair of shoes; it’s going to bring you sunshine even under a big, dark umbrella 😉 and most of all, visit special place, from where the rain behind the window looks perfect!

Gentlemen always have a book at their armpits!

Today I hang in the wind regarding the theme of my article mostly because of a silly, not that known movie that I sow last night on HBO, named Liberal Arts. I cannot talk of it like an impressive story that will linger in my mind for many days to come, but the idea in the back, the draft concept , was quite close to my heart – literature, books that change your life, books that you are force to read at school and without even knowing it they shape your character.

Starting from this and a very intimate discussion with my mom, I stumbled upon, for the second time, on this video. I will not analyze it, because to me the images say it all. All I can add is that I’m in fact a dreamer. Oooooh what a dreamer!

The Sartorialist: Lunch for 25, Edition III

The sketch in my brain made over the years a male character out of this word, a chic, bohemia person, all fashion addict, with the knowledge of a Harvard professor, a preacher sense of respect and a body of a CK model. I know, it’s just a dream, but I did say I’m a dreamer!

I will not, repeat will not get into the details of the love life and all this craziness, but I can say to all of you reading this choose the one with the most qualities, not just of the heart but of the senses too.

Over times all this starts to fade away, and it’s so good to still have the tween snap fedora bought in the prime of the life in an Italian walk through an old town.  And if the bookcase is full of old great writers even better!

Small wishes always come true.

This holiday the focus was on one little and cute thing that now is the most important part of my family. And because we all revolve around her, there was no time for family gifts shopping and Ester bunny presents.

But, someone took the time to get for me a small wish that was on my “for the home” list for some time now.

 

Well, all that I can say is that these small, really simple and sometimes overlooked wishes are the best, and they make you dream a million sweet ways that you can use/put/wear them.

We all what that perfect, big, gorgeous gift, but life does not let us have it all the time so please don’t forget about the little basket that goes perfect with the new furniture, or the simple photo frame that can hide the corners of the on the beach picture with your best friend. They are small and somehow unimportant but the dreams they make are more than just big, they are long lasting. 🙂

Hristos a inviat!

First of all I need to say a big sorry for not posting the last couple of days, even though it was Easter I should have at list add one small article about all the things I’ve seen lately.
