Hello there!
I wanna apologize for the sudden disappearance. My life has been a beautiful mess these past weeks.
The only thing I can honestly say is that I'm here and that's a perfect thing.

So, I've been thinking a lot about fashion, it's meaning and all the pretty things with which we meet every day either on the streets or TV, internet etc.. and suddenly it began to lose sense to me.  All these beauty products, fashion campaigns, bombardment of subliminal ads everywhere you turn around about what to buy, how to look, stay fresh and young, what's hot and what's not. 
The requirement for spending tons of money on stuff you probably don't need but desperately have to own in order to feel special or successful. I thought about it a lot and it made me feel sick, almost felt sorry for myself. All this time maybe I cared a lot about getting the right pair of shoes because it feels good in my head?
I remember a friend once asked me, what hobbies do you have? I own a fashion blog and I enjoy very much doing it, I proudly answered. He looked me and said with a tone of disappointment  !oh you're one of those people!.. One of those people I asked? what does that even mean? I didn't understand why the judgement because coincidentally he's a fashion designer, but he explained so easily to me: - I just find stupid when a bunch of presumptuous guys tell me how many shoes they've just bought and how bad they can't wait to wear them, but they never seem to have a job or struggle to earn them-. He was so right!
This was not at all the reason why I fell in love with fashion a long ago. 
When does fashion divorce intelligence? "Breakfast in bed & my louboutins"?, "Clutches, lattes and lace"? GOD NO! C'mon bloggers, people deserve better.
Somehow I lost the meaning in the way, and ended up hating all this pretentiousness.  Why would we want to have the same hairstyle, over-spend in a wallet or even worse; read about a blogger finding the bag of the season and its emerald green color which is so rich,rich, luxe,luxe? Boooring! In the end is like an army of snob, stuck up and uppity fake clones. Ugh! 
I don't wanna give advices, who am I to give them.. I just wanna keep sharing what inspires me right now, what I like and find attractive in a healthy way and if in the road I get to inspire you somehow then I will have accomplished something big and this blog will get a sense.

Topshop Unique Fall 2012.

Relaxed and loose, even the hair and make up. A little tomboyish and yet sexy but the best atribute of all is the accesible prices.
The collection will hit the stores this fall.
If you wanna see the whole collection just go here.
Or watch the show, then go here

The Backpack. 

Christopher Shannon for Cambridge satchel company collection.
When I first fell in love of these gorgeous leather satchel bags I thought that there was nothing to make'em look better or more desirable, clearly I was wrong.
I don't really know where to find them but you can always go to their main page.

Printed Capris.

From top left: DVF Charles trousers, Karen Walker boat pants, Kenzo bird print crepe trousers, J.Crew polka dot capris,  J.Crew cafe capri in foulard,  3.1 Phillip Lim tailored trousers.

Aside from jeans, I believe printed trousers are multifaceted, comfy and fun, oh and let's not forget pretty!

Buckle me.

Hello guys, I'm sorry for being a little distant but right now I' ve been dealing with so many stuff.
Anyways... Harnesses, leather corsets and similars are a trend that's been around for awhile now and has kept alive thanks to Blake Lively and fashionistas around the world.
In my humble opinion this little piece of leather can do wonders to any outfit and I frankly love it.
How can we pull out this trend? I believe with almost everything, from an elegant night gown to an edgy bold outfit, like a pair of cutout denim short shorts, a cotton t-shirt and heels.
If your interested in this trend you can get it here and here.
So..verdict, what do we say to this trend? Yay or nay?

Object of desire.

From top left: Balmain leather belt, ASOS skinny link detail belt, Mango touch leather belt, Mango bonjour belt, Pamela Love for J.Crew, Topshop metal chevron keeper belt.

Meet the current trend of the market; the "Statement belt".
First was all about statement rings and necklaces; but right now is the waist turn to look fun.
Trend advantage: Can wear it for every season, with jeans, shorts and even dresses.
Can compliment from the most dressy outfit to a very laid back one.
I recently scored myself a Mango belt; it was a little pricey but   it sure worth it.
So what do we say about this trend, yay? or nay?.

Now what?
 First big hair, then flamboyant shoulder pads (thank you Gaga for that one),hipsters, washed denim and now mirrored sunnies. Yes we're straight back to the 80's.
I like this trend but in the usual black.
What do you say about this one, yay or nay?

 Good artists copy...

From top to bottom: 
Brian Blake high sneakers, Alexander Wang golf bags, UNIF hellraiser loafers.

It seems like we are in the sneakers, loafers/ moccasins/ oxfords= comfort season,  and Isabel Marant's creation seems to be not only the favorite among fashion appreciators (addicts) but one of the most pricey ones too. But hey! this is never been a problem since we can always count on the friendly budget similars (Jeffrey Campbell knows best, and we thank him for it.)
If you're dying to get the look but don't necessarily want to spend a lot of the big ones; this Brian Blake pair will do for you. 
About spiked loafers, Louboutin did great! unleashing a wave of copycats, no wonder why.
So in this case the hellraisers from Unif will satisfy your thirst for studded shoes.
Other sneaker similars, here and here.
More loafers here.

Fashion is in the details.

Pics via, fashion me now, Oracle fox, Street smith.

For me when it concerns about fashion my moto is "less is more".
A little tiny detail here and there can always make the difference.
