When is the right time to start shopping for sandals? For me it’s Spring. Especially now when I live in Spain and Spring very rapidly turns into Summer. Actually, I can wear sandals at the moment, in the beginning of April. I think the warm sunny weather and relaxed tourists in their flip-flops (already!!) makes me anxious about not being ready. The other good point of shopping for sandals early, is that you still have plenty of choice. By the middle of May all good and interesting pieces will be sold out. So, better early than late, right? Here is my selection of 16 amazing shoes for this Spring/Summer 2014 season:
Today is the official first day of Spring. And as florals is a huge trend this Spring, I have collected the most fabulous pieces to brighten up your wardrobe. I don’t know about you, but as soon as it gets warmer, sun is shining and birds are trilling, I have a unbearable itch to through away my clothes and buy new ones. Tell me about Spring cleaning, right? :)
Anyway, there are so many cool dresses, shoes, handbags and accessories with amazing floral prints, that it is really hard to choose. That’s why my set instead of featuring just 6 things as usual, squeezed in 11 items. And that’s without cute Spring dresses, which I listed separately. So, here is my selection of “Fabulous Florals”:
I haven’t been posting my 3 luxe things that I am obsessed about each Wednesday for a while. Well, I was neglecting my blog lately so there is no surprise that I stopped collecting amazing items. But today I have stumbled upon really cool Harry Winston watch and my passion for selecting luxe items came back. So, here are my 3 luxe obsessions this Wednesday:
First luxe item on my list is this amazing orange handbag by Bottega Veneta. This will be a perfect option for Spring.
Can’t wait to go back to London and stay at the newest Shangri-La Hotel at the Shard. The hotel will officially open on May 6, 2014, but they already accept reservations. And even if there will be no rooms available during my next visit to London, I will definitely make sure that my friends and I have a few rounds at the highest champagne and cocktail bar on the 52 floor, which will be open in July. There is something magical in drinking your cocktails high in the sky.
I love to be loud, have fun and drink Guinness in one of the local Irish bars on St. Patrick’s Day. But most of all I am always very excited to put together a green outfit for this day. Do you remember my St. Patrick’s outfit ideas last year? Now I have created 5 various green outfits to put me into St. Patrick’s Day mood. And of course, this colour palette is not only appropriate today, right? Let’s see what I came up with :)
Flirty St. Patrick’s Day
I just love the award season and although my favourite awards ceremonies are Golden Globes and Oscars, there are some events that still deserve attention. If only for the fashion on the red carpet. I envy celebrities who are busy choosing their dresses during this exciting time. I wish I could one day go to any of these events at least as a guest.
Anyway, back to the red carpet fashion and celebrities who looked the most stunning of all. This time I have selected 7 dresses which I loved. Surprisingly, Cate Blanchett is not on my list this time, as I found the Givenchy dress that she was wearing very unflattering. So, here are the celebrities who in my mind made it right this time:
This year I made a resolution to read more and not only romantic novels. So, the most interesting topic for me at the moment is the marketing and creating of a luxury brand. That is why the main subject of the books I want to read this year is luxury. I am actually very surprised that I haven’t done it before?! I mean, I read a lot of luxury magazines and blogs, but I have never thought of reading the actual book on the subject. Anyway, better late than never, right? So, here is my list of books I can’t wait to read this year!
I woke up today earlier as usual, because I wanted to have enough time to watch Golden Globes 2014 award ceremony and enjoy beautiful celebrities in their stunning dresses. But the moment I stated to browse through dresses my Internet connection got lost and I couldn’t finish what I started. Only now it is back on and I can share my thoughts about the Golden Globes fashion.
Wow! What a night it was! I am really happy for Leonardo DiCaprio for finally getting the award and although, as he said himself “I didn’t expect to get it for a comedy”, he deserves it! Congrats! Amy and Tina were funny as always. I really enjoy them as hosts, let them do it every year. Although as Tina Fey pointed it out “Hollywood makes something people like over and over agin until everyone hates it”. Let’s hope the ladies will not lose their appeal to us for a long long time. I was really surprised for Jennifer Lawrence’s award, I thought she had enough presents last year, clearly not. Well, and this is all I wanted to say about the ceremony in a nutshell. Let’s get back to the ladies and their dresses.
Only half an hour is left till the red carpet coverage of Golden Globes 2014 begins. So, while we are waiting to see what celebrity girls will be wearing tonight, let’s play a guessing game. I have selected a few evening dresses, that I would love to see on the red carpet tonight. It was impossible to “dress” all celebrity girls, so I just covered nominees from the two categories: Best Performance By An Actress In A Motion Picture, Drama and Best Performance By An Actress In A Motion Picture, Comedy Or Musical. As well as some of my favourite actresses. Let’s start with nominees from the above mentioned categories:
Category: Best Performance By An Actress In A Motion Picture, Drama
“Blue Jasmine” is the only movie I have seen from the list of nominated girls, but I really loved Cate Blanchett performance in it. And although other nominees are very amazing actresses, I will be happy if Cate Blanchett wins. Anyway, it will be a very important day for Cate and I think she is preparing for it very carefully. I would love to see her in this red dress by Elie Saab. Cate Blanchett would look stunning in this dress. What do you think?
I love beginning of each year, not only because we have a fresh start, but also due to Golden Globes! This is one of my most favourite award ceremonies. Golden Globes 2014 has all ingredients to be perfect: Amy Poehler and Tina Fey as amazing hosts, Leonardo DiCaprio is nominated and the list of actresses is outstanding, which means that we will be spoilt with magnificent dresses on the red carpet.
You know that I love to play a guessing game before Golden Globes? I am not trying to guess who is going to win, but rather what actresses will wear on a red carpet. And after the ceremony I compare what I have chosen with the actual dress. I love this game. Of course, I am not able to select dresses for each nominee, but from the list below I will pick 10 celebrities and start looking. If you want, you can help me decide which celebrities to “dress” by leaving your suggestions in the comments section. I am so excited! :)
