The Fashion Corner of Instagram

When it comes to inspiration, does the rule of “less is more” even come into consideration? First there was Tumblr, then came Pinterest and the last to gain the spotlight was Instagram. There are a bunch of stylish instagramers around, but these girls are a “must follow”!

When in Paris, Wear black



 

There’s a “black” for everyone. Black goes beyond age, skin colour, weight or wallet size, yet it stays personal. Far beyond being a style signature in itself, I see it more as a canvas for blending the details, shapes and textures into what it should be a lady’s masterpiece: her personal style. As make-up gurus say: blending is the key!

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: “I don’t bother you – don’t bother me”.” Yohji Yamamoto

Here’s my choice for a casual dinner out: Stine Goya Pompom sweater, Abercrombie&Fitch slim fit jeans, Zara court shoes and the coolest menswear inspired clutch by Little Liffner.

Why the Rave?

This teeny tiny, but oh, so bold jacket made a successful entry on the red carpet of spring’s most wanted purchases. The H&M team managed to (I dare to say) eclipse their own outstanding collaboration with Margiela by throwing in this elaborate piece, a modern take on the little (black) jacket. Though, at first sight everything screams “it jacket , not so fancy next season”, could have H&M actually designed a statement piece able to pass the the test of time?

As for me, I can already picture myself taking ages to decide whether I should hand over my credit card or not, missing it and then stirring up on ebay with my fingers crossed. Ask me now, I’d buy it. The question is: will it end up a “last season” item back on ebay or a treasured purchase?

LATER EDIT:
I knew I’ve layed my eyes on something similar not long ago and I’ve finally remembered: the Manoush jacket! Which do you like best?

Perfect LBD, Search over

My search for the perfect little black dress is finally over! What a relief! I’ve struggled for years to find that kind of dress that’s able to get you out of those “I’ve got nothing to wear” situations, but I was never satisfied with the options available. Neither too fancy, nor too plain, The Kooples version encompasses everything I’ve searched for: almost a straight cut, airy fabric, flirty lace details and wearable, so so wearable! I’d wear it with a navy or khaki trench coat and a leather rucksack for day and turn it into a completely different outfit at night by throwing on a biker jacket or a boxy camel wool coat.
