Anglomania





















































(ps: thefashionspot.com)

Karlie Kloss by Natalia Alaverdian for Harper's Bazaar Russia September 2012

FYI - Anglomania is to have a strong predilection for anything English. 
I find this term a really good way to describe a lot of the fall 2012 pieces...

August is ending = summer ending and I was wondering - are you all ready for fall? xx

Latest Buys




Slowly but surely, I begin to check items off my "To Buy for Fall 2012" list.


1. Essie's Tart Deco (the coral color, from their Spring 2010 line) & Sew Psyched (the cashmere green color, from their Fall 2010 line). During the fall and winter I tend to wear more black than usual, so I figured I should add some color through my nails. Tart Deco turned out to be a bit too bright and very neon for my taste, but it goes really well with another pink nail color I already own and I have mixed the two for a nice gradient manicure, which I have been wearing nonstop.
Sew Psyched is such a beautiful color, I love how it shows up on your nails and it also seems to go with almost every skin tone... Definitely recommended.

2. There's nothing like a fresh new fragrance to start off a new season... This is Trésor In Love by Lancôme (here) and I actually received this as a birthday gift. I have never gone for a Lancôme fragrance before, I suppose I never thought I would like them. But, I sure was wrong because I'm in LOVE with this scent. It has a touch of nectarine and cedar wood, distinctive rose and luminous jasmine, and it smells absolutely divine. For anybody looking for a new fragrance and likes floral, yet woody scents - highly recommended.

3. Zara's Basic Velvet Slipper (here). I've wanted a velvet flat for years, and I could never find the perfect pair. A few days ago, I walked into Zara looking for something nice to wear for a rehearsal dinner, and there in the windows the mannequin was wearing a pair of velvet flats. Oh, and they happened to be in my size too. They are so comfortable, and so easy. I got them in black, but I saw they had a blue too.

What's on your "To Buy for Fall 2012" list? xx

Pretty In Pink





















































Querelle Jansen by Jason Kibbler for Vogue Spain August 2012

I am loving pinks at the moment, anything pink I want to wear. But the problem with pink is that it's so easy to over style, or to have so much pink in a look that it makes your look become super girly, or even Barbie.

So, I'm happy I found this editorial to go to for advice on how to style pinks. See here, looks are with a lot of pink but still look edgy, and beautiful. I suppose we should thank the designers for giving us the best pink pieces I have seen in a while too..

What are your thoughts on pink? xx
