Bold print & bold hair

Zizzi just dropped in stores some really cool pieces in this bold and a-m-a-z-i-n-g print. Get it here.

Black background, big flowers and bright colours. It is spring breeze over the corner. This exclusive print from Zizzi just won my heart and I have been wearing it (too) often. But can you blame me? I love spring and while nature does not bring it on, I pull it with my style.

The print comes also in a beautiful top that can be a good option for working wear for instance. If you are not feeling that bold, no problem, just grab your jeans and pair with the top, voilà! Here you go:

I love this tunic dress. The outfit just totally matched my first trial of wearing a lace wig. It is a way of getting a new hair so fast :-)

NYFW body positive shows: exactly what the industry needs

NYFW body positive shows: exactly what the industry needs

Trends presented in runaways are not only extended to fashion but to behaviour, politics and society. For this reason, brands that promote diversity and body positivity are ahead in the curve and do one good favour for the society. But more than that, they play the right role in fashion – to guide society towards a future of acceptance, equality and inclusion.

Several brands are using the hype of feminism and body positivity “online zeitgeist” in their shows and clothes for instance. But we all know that the issue requires more than Tshirts and diverse casting for the shows. If they are doing their homework and keeping it real outside the runaways, it remains to be seen, but

Christian Siriano has become as synonymous with inclusivity has he is with jaw-dropping evening wear. Once again, the designer showed the entire fashion industry what a truly inclusive runway looks like at his fall ’17 show.

At the Grand Ballroom at the Plaza Hotel, Siriano presented a range of lacquered velvet sets, animal-printed party dresses, and dreamy ball gowns on an equally diverse set of models — diverse in race, in size, and in industry experience. The lineup included women ranging from size 2 to 16, according to Cosmopolitan.

If this change is here to stay we cannot ensure that yet. But for some seasons now we have been witnesses of a major change that seems to be just the start into the total fashion inclusion I dream about.

How to sexy up your boyfriend jeans

How to sexy up your boyfriend jeans

Don’t ask me when or why, but I have become a big fan of jeans. I guess it may be the Scandinavian influence on my style. And now the piece makes total sense in my style. I have worn the perfect slim jeans, flared ones, you name it. But recently I have been obsessed with boyfriend jeans. Or Mom models, for the sake of fashion specialists.

Tested! Review and impressions on new skin care routine

There is a time in life when prevention is the best remedy. Better to prevent than to cure, right? Not only talking about health but also about life. Wisdom comes with age and one thing I learned along my 34 years in this world is that sometimes it takes almost no effort to save ourselves from enormously damaging situations – whether emotional or physical damages. You just have to respect yourself, your boundaries and wishes. When it comes to health, prevention is clearly the best and it takes no effort at all.

A good 2017, in eight steps

A good 2017, in eight steps

I was trying to remember the promises I made last year to see if I had met the goals and if I was going on the path of my biggest plans in life. I figured that this way it would be easier to start writing about my year. Some plans worked out well, but the truth is I do not remember well how things were before I “got pregnant” (and had the baby in three months, ahahahha).

Shine bright, but from the inside out

Shine bright, but from the inside out

When party season is on, it is officially allowed to shine on a daily basis. Clothes acquire bling bling’s, the accessories get fancy and us? We do have more fun. But truth is we need no allowance, or approval of any sorts, to shine as bright as we can, as often as we can, and even like, 24/7. With that being said, I got to add an important detail that changes it all: our brightest shine is from the inside out.
