Seasonal Luxuries

I was surfing on and found this fabulous post on how each fashion house has different visions and perspectives of luxury. In fact, the most prominent seasons for luxury items are the fall/winter campaigns.

"For Armani, the season’s look is all about elegance and classic refinement, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott's image of Edita Vilkeviciute in scarlet is the perfect representation of that."

"YSL offers another take on refinement with its cool Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin helmed campaign featuring Daria Werbowy. Sporting a jet black bob and lots of eyeliner, Daria looks oh so chic and slightly mod."

"Dior offers up the wildest variant of luxe with Karlie Kloss looking positively bohemian in a shot by Steven Meisel, the wild hair and eclectic ensemble look incredible on Karlie and capture the spirit of Galliano’s spirited collection."

Which ad is your favorite? 
Mine is Dior, Karlie totally rocks it.

Just the maxi focus

OOTD time! I had a party to go to and it was pouring rain outside. Even though it is summer, I find rainy days deserve long sombre colored maxis :) I decided to transform the dress into a long maxi skirt because the top part of the dress is extremely tight on my bust area to the point that I feel it is going to rip apart. Thus, maxi dress becomes max skirt!

Blue florals

Hello my dear readers! Another OOTD posted. I had to go to work and it was 43 degrees outside, As you can imagine with such temperature rises, the humidity is almost unbearable, quite shocking to be this hot in Canada. Oh well, I guess summer has definitely come!
Outfit: skirt-Old Navy (4 years old), shoes-gift, top-forever21, belt-h&m, earrings-forever21.

Those pictures are absolutely gorgeous.

Let's sail away

I have been sailing around Polyvore and Harper's bazaar for some nautical themed pictures. The trend is classy and chic and trust me when I say that no matter the summer year or century, it will always be in. Maybe with a twist each time! Don't be afraid to purchase nautical themed fashion items or accessories because you will be finding yourself reaching for them every single summer. Get inspired and sail away!

Outfit of the day 29-06-2010

Here is another outfit of the day! I had to go to work, then pick up my mother with my dad and go grocery shopping. Thus, didn't do much! Just a comfy casual outfit, yet still appropriate for the office. Clothes: blue top-banana republic, cardigan-zara, pants-miu miu, red flats-shopruche, necklace-from my best friend.


Summer Beauty Guide

  • BRAIDS & WAVES; Not much to say for this one except that waves and braids are the way to go this summer. Braids are heavily influenced by the spring 2010 catwalks all over Europe. Particularly prominent on Alexander Wang's Spring 2010 runway, and also spotted at Miuccia Prada's Miu Miu Spring 2010.

  • Fun shaded lipsticks. Trust me, they work with any skin color. Pair them with neutral eyes and be ready to pop with them. Especially go for corals and fun pink, violet shades.

  • Pastels haven't only be raging all over clothes and makeup, but nails as well. Go ahead and shellac your nails with one of those hot hues: Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour ($26, at all Chanel beauty counters) in “Nouvelle Vague.” Yves Saint Laurent Long-Lasting Nail Lacquer ($24 each, at Holt Renfrew) in “Ultra Violet” and “Ultra Orange.” 

  • Colored eyeliners are perfect for summer season! They brighten up your eyes and give a fun, youthful vibe. Take advantage of them this summer! 

  • Of course you want a "healthy glow", but the name says it itself- Healthy-, so please avoid the harmful rays of the sun UVA/UVB and invest in a good SPF. Don't you worry, because you can still get that summery glow by using powered or cream bronzers (there are so many options out there).
