Hey Everyone! It’s time for another Honest Thoughts post since my last one about Caroline Stanbury being my favourite Bitch grabbed your attention. Now before any of you scowl and tell me that I’m being bitchy, hateful, negative etc towards H&M lovers, let me just say that I have a love and hate relationship with H&M. It’s true that I own items from the infamous clothing chain that I absolutely love, and I often frequent the local H&Ms in my area. But guess what H&M just like any store that has mass produced clothing, sucks. I’m not telling you to avoid H&M, that’s far from the truth, however I do want you to be smarter shoppers from time to time..it’s my new initiative as a Fashion Blogger for 2016.
Hey Everyone! Sorry for my mini absence from the blog-o-sphere, I’m back and ready to blog. Let’s begin with a Trending Tuesday post! There is one “trend” that is my absolute favourite to wear and style when the climate begins to soar and the sunshine is in abundance. Ahem, that is wearing white in the summer. I used to hear stories about how in Europe there would be ‘summer of white parties’ where everyone wears white clothing, and parties until dawn. If I give it some serious thought, I too wore white during my European travels. I had one dress in particular that could transform amidst the scenery and landscapes of Vienna, Rome, and throughout the cities of Greece, yielding some of my favourite pictures. So, maybe wearing white in the summer holds a bit of nostalgia in my mind, and I’m being a little biased towards this hot, and always a favourite summer trend. Well that and I recently bought a new dress for the summer that is in this trendy shade, it’s lacey with a …
Oh to be underneath the Umbrian sun is where I wish I were at this very moment. To be surrounded by a place of beauty, with mountains offering scenic sights, fresh air, and a land that yields foods a la crème de la crop. If I were there I too would probably be as inspired as ever, to dress in my favourite outfits so I could pose for photos all day long just like Elena.
Privet Matryoshka’s!! The Russian model Irina Shayk is making me crave a vacation to the Mayan Riviera with her latest campaign for Lily Pulitzer’s SS 2014. The photo’s show the model wearing dresses that come in vibrant hues, and prints that remind me of time spent in Mexico (/any place where the sun can give you sun kissed skin that makes already bright outfits pop further); or walking the infamous La Ramblas in Barcelona ( you need to stand out in Spain 😛 ). The photo shoot took place in Miami. + I’m loving this relaxed vacation vibe.
Privet Matryoshka’s aren’t you just wishing you could just jet-sett off to someplace warm with inviting beaches of white sand and bright blue water? Vacation style is something I love, and Victoria Bonya’s demonstrating the vacation-style-effect the way I like it. I love her simple use of flowing dresses, and her other understated looks that are perfect for photo-ops on the beach.
Elena Perminova is soaking it up under the sun in the Maldives, and wearing dresses from H&M’s Spring-Summer 2014 collection. One word: Beautiful! She always makes H&M clothing look so good!!!! ( like when she was featured in Harpers Bazaar modelling off Isabel Marant’s line for H&M). She just knows how to perfectly mix and match high end and low end fashion pieces to create sartorial looks to admire!
