Sinister, vampire-esque, lady of the night; dark Lips embody edge, and a supernatural factor. When I think of Dark Lips, I can’t help but think of Hannah Beth. Do any of you know, or remember Hannah Beth? Okay, let me tell you a quick story. There was this one time when I watched a full season of House of DVF. It’s a reality show about Diane Von Furstenburg, where she has to weed out the perfect brand ambassador amongst a bunch of girls, all vying for the opportunity. Each week they complete tasks, etc to impress Diane. Well Hannah Beth won and became the DVF brand ambassador. And, Hannah was notorious for wearing a bold, dark lip! So now whenever I think of dark lipsticks, and shades, well now you know why I think of her! Anyways, Three runway shows in particular have used dark lipsticks at LFW, and when 3 shows are doing something similar, it’s a trend. And I won’t stop there I’ll also talk about how you can perfect this lip trend for yourself. Continue reading “Trending Tuesday: Dark Lips At LFW”
This spring there’s a lot of trends to keep up with! Expect to see the classics this season like florals, and romantic ruffles. You know one of the seasons hottest selling dress comes from Proenza Schouler who decided to re-interpret the ruffle trend by drawing from Spanish elements- Traje de flamenca perhaps? You’ll also see that the mule shoe is back in, this time as a flat. While blouses and dresses will have a higher than average neckline. But if that’s not enough to confuse your outfit abilities to mix and match without a flaw- there’s even some 70’s inspired suede to deal with. So, with the designers deciding to throw a multitude of stuff at us, here is a Spring trend report, broken down and made simple for you. Plus a few Spring must haves I’ve picked out.
The Patchwork Coat
Winter time usually means you need to wear items that will keep you warm, well this winter you can add a touch of flair by looking for jackets with multicoloured patchwork. I know what you’re thinking these might resemble that quilt your grandmother gifted you last christmas. But, this is the look du jour! Psst, these coats look best when paired with simple, black or leather leggings!! I’m almost falling for the Marni coat with it’s bold, reds, camels and cream patches that have been interspersed with touches of black. (All of these coats are from Marni) Continue reading “Trending This Winter.. Patchwork ?!! Velvet??! ETC!”
Miroslava Duma was notorious for wearing statement necklaces, the bigger the better- and those jewels always suited her. But the days of the statement necklace seem to have faded, being replaced by accessories that add to her newly evolved mature, & business chic style. The Russian style star always pulls off effortless style, even amid weeks of non-stop travel. She’s been busy expanding her fashion empire, + kick starting Buro 24/7’s Fashion Forward Initiative showcasing young talent from across Russia, Ukraine, and Kazakhstan. (Plus visiting Mongolia, Turkey, and countless other countries). In addition to all of that she’s been spotted in San Fransisco for the VFS summit. Oh and did I mention she did Paris Fashion Week- Cap à pie sans flaws. Anyways, this post is dedicated to Mira’s latest style, and what she has been wearing.

Elena Perminova is the coup de coeur of my style crushes; She’s a Chanel ambassador, Jet & trend setter, mother of three, model, a philanthropist- she’s the first to create an online auction via instagram aptly named S.O.S by Elena Perminova (Which helps to cover the cost of children’s medical expenses) and is married to the media mogul- Alexander Lebedev. What doesn’t Elena have under her repertoire? Today, I thought it would be fun to put up a few of her top style moments, which is never easy to narrow down – some of the images are of her appearing ultra-femme, to her take on a great Gatsby look, and of course there is always a little bit of androgyny to be found.
