Feeling really under the weather.
And lonely...

Links I loved!

Not too much to show you this week - not because there isn't good stuff around, but because more than once I forgot to bookmark the posts I loved (bad chiara!!!)

Now let's talk about fashion...
  • A, of The Glamourous Grad Student, shows us 10 tips for closet organization.
  • An interesting tutorial from Imogen on how to chose the right handbag.
  • What lies behing the fear of being too dressed up? Angie has some answers...
  • And a last minut entry: From Sal, an easy course on how to wear brooches.
What did you love reading, last week?

Weekly outfits!

Here are last week's outfits, Thursday not included, since I was sick...
Oh, and I have a new haircut! The hairstylist went a bit too "scissors happy", and cut a lot, but it'll grow back. In the meantime I am enjoying the short time needed to dry it!

Dress, Pepe Jeans,
Cardigan, random store in Buffalo
Boots, Frau
I wore the dress with a cardigan because it was cold, and because I thought the beige color would soften the loudness of the dress.

Turtleneck sweater, Tezenis
Cardigan, Express
Skirt, Conbipel
Boots, Campanile
Necklace, colleague's mom

I have had this cardigan for a long time, and the skirt for more than a year, but I never tried wearing them together. I think I like the combination!

Cashmere cardigan, JCrew
Shirt, H&M (girft from cousin)
Skirt, Klix
Boots, Frau
Tights - probably Target?

I was looking for a way to wear this shirt - I am not sure this is the right combination, though.

Turtleneck, random street vendor
Sweater, Banana Republic
Jeans, Killah
Boots, Campanile
Necklace, colleague's mom

I don't know why I don't wear this black sweater very often. I really like it, plus it is quite warm.

This week I tried to wear less dresses and pull out of the closet stuff I don't wear too often - mostly tops. I think I did a decent job, and will do it more often!

More spring looks.

Other stuff I really loved from  the runaway:


Rodarte                                                                          Giambattista Valli
Diane Von Furstemberg - beautiful!!!

Cutout: here is who did it best, in my opinion, without showing too much!

Gucci                                                         Hervé Lèger by Max Azira

John Richmond

Floral - oh so spring-y!

Chanel                                                     Dior

Skirts - these were very chic looks I adored:

    AF Vandervost                                      Enrico Coveri

Tommy Hilfiger (and I don't even like him that much!)

Trench -this really is a classic for spring.
 Burberry Prorsum  (both)

      D&G                                                      Ermanno Scervino

Tommy Hilfiger

Nude - I think this is a bit tricky: the secret is choosing a shade that goes well with your skin tone, but is not the same - otherwise it washes out all of your features. This I think is especially true for blondes.

    Elie Saab                                                Valentino


Other interesting trends - if well done, and in small doses:


  Proenza Schouler (both)



What do you think of spring fashion?

My breakfast cake!
(And bf's coffee too...)

The mess was my fault!

Trends for Spring!

I was reading the Glamour Special on the spring/summer runaways.. Found some very interesting trends (if you would say so: lots of things, in my opinion, are on trend always, such as trench coats), and some looks I am not even gonna consider...
Here's what I liked:

White: so cool and refreshing for the warmer months....

Chanel                                                                             Blugirl

D&G                                                                Moschino Cheap & Chic               

Ermanno Scervino                                                          Sportmax

Pois are fun when well done (otherwise they fall into the "clown" cathegory). Here are some of the best examples:

Luella                                                                                Aquascutum

Jason Wu (really love this!)

Vitaminic colors: so very summery...

Blumarine                                                                             Blugirl

Military - one of my favourite trends!

Sportmax                                                                        Stella McCartney

Fluo: this look, from Andrew Gin, shows it really well!

More to come...

Song of the day!

Just discovered him through a friend...

Outfit roudup.

Here are a couple of outfits from last week. I didn't take a picture every day, so this is all I have:

This dress was an impulse buy from Mango. And I am glad I bought it, since it's very versatile, comfortable, and I have worn it a lot. Purple tights were a Christmast present (last year) from young sister, the turtleneck and necklace are from street vendors. And my Frau boots!

I tried this dress from Max & Co., and fell in love. It's a soft, silky material. It was not cheap, even on sale, but I think it's so well made and flattering that I'll wear it for years. I am thikning of pairing it with some blue cardigan, I should try to find one...
Gray tights are from a long time ago, probably Target, circa 2005. I don't use them much, so they are still new. Turtleneck was a find from street vendor. The necklace was a Christmas gift from a colleague, a very pretty heart with pearls. And the usual Frau boots.

Links I liked!

Here are some posts really worth reading from this week - many are about making your wishes come true. Should start thinking if there's a hidden message for me in this coincidence...
  • From Megan, wonderful advice on playing a character, someone you really want to be, to become that person and create the magic life you want!
  • Cherry on top - from Gala. Nothing to add, really!
  • Thoughts on the Ex-Factor, from Sarah Von. I am never too sure on how to relate to my exes, and she offers some food for thoughts in there.
  • In a winter rut? Nonsense, says Liv. Here's what to do.
  • Kaileenelise reminds us that, to make our dreams come true, we need to nurture them and tend to them, as if they were a "tiny and precious garden". Oh, so true!
  • Luinae wrote a short list of all the small steps she wants to take to make her dream come true. She wants to be an artist. However, I find these suggestions really adaptable to many other areas/jobs/lives, as long as you really want to make it!

A romantic evening...

Here's what I'd wear!

Song of the day!

One of the best guitarist, in my opinion!

More playing...

I'd probably wear this pretty dress this way... otherwise it's be too "cute"!

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Playing with Polyvore...

I'd probably wear something like this should I play in public...
And I should really buy this guitar!
