MAC x Betty Boop

MAC is paying tribute to the sassy cartoon character Betty Boop with a red lipstick which is already challenging Ruby Woo for the no. 1 red lipstick in my chart. Inspired by the signature Betty's red pout this lipstick is just the perfect shade of red with a retro vibe. When compared to Ruby Woo this matte red lipstick is slightly lighter and not as matt but with that retro vibe that gives it that special something which is set to make this lipstick as iconic as its inspirational character. 
A contender for Ruby Woo? Definetely! Not a problem for me as you can never have enough red lipsticks..

Opening Ceremony is once again collaborating with Esprit for a collection which draws from the counterculture mall brand’s fresh, subversive history. Inspired by funhouse prints and sherbert stripes from Esprit’s ‘80s and ‘90s heydey—with silhouettes that will look as modern in 20 years as they would have on a Memphis Milano sofa—the collection is an icon in the making. 

“Esprit and Opening Ceremony share an ethos, from our relationship with global youth culture to our insistence on diversity in fashion,” says Opening Ceremony co-founder Humberto Leon. “This collection channels that spirit.”

Flowers for Spring?

Flowers for Spring? Groundbreaking.. The quote is of course from one of my favourite movie " The Devil Wears Prada" and although flowers are certainly not that original for Spring they can surely be cute!
I am not a huge flower fan for clothing and I don't think I own that many items with flowers motifs but this palazzo pants somehow striked me when I saw them at a market stall in Italy. I find them super cute and the black and blush flowery print is quite different from the usual multicolors prints.
I think I will be able to wear them anytime of the day on both casual and smart occasions. For this shoothing I am wearing them with my new metallic Adidas Superstar Boost which I love! They are so on trend with the shiny metallic upper the beautiful copper color they are my must-have shoe for Spring!
At night of course I will be swapping my trainers for a pair of wedges or sandals for a more glamourous evening look!

Logo tees from the '90s are back!

Logo tees have been having a moment for some time and this let me say is one of those trends which I really like! My favourite have to be all the logo tees with '90s brands: Fila, Ellesse, Calvin Klein, Guess, Levi's, Champions.. they are not only super cute but also have that vintage vibe which for me is oh so cool!
I am so happy they are back in style as I will be wearing them all Spring! Here I am pairing an Ellesse top with mom's jeans and a khaki jacket with a military vibe. But no worries logo tees are just so easy to combine you can literally wear them with anything, try them underneath a slip dress or with a white denim and you are sure to be the coolest girl on the block! My collection of logo tees is rapidly growing and you will see me wearing many more through the season!



Jeans: PULL & BEAR

Zara Larsson x H&M

H&M and Zara Larsson have teamed up for a capsule collection which takes inspiration from the style of the Swedish pop sensation. The collection features strong graphics and edgy streetwear pieces such an oversized hoodie and a t-shirt dress. Both pieces are emblazoned with hot pink graphics and strong feminist messages contributing in making the collection fierce but feminine. The colour palette is dominated by pink in various shades complemented by black and silver all in materials such as velour, denim, mesh fabrichs and cotton jersey.
The collection will launch worldwide at selected H&M stores and online on May 18th 2017.

"I am really excited to finally share my collection with H&M. I have had so much fun working with them to design pieces and create a campaign that reflects my personality. I can't wait
to see how girls everywhere wear the pieces to add to their own personal style".
