Mood Boards & Outfits: Valentine's Day

Hello my dear readers,

Valentine's Day is approaching and I thought it appropriate to make an outfit suggestions type of post. I considered doing it the usual way (if you're familiar with my posting style), by creating paperdolls (using Polyvore) that demonstrate the outfits.

But then I thought about making this more inspiring and personal, and less editorial-like. This isn't Who What Wear after all. Just a personal blog. What got me going was the idea that designing is always considered as more creative than styling and I just wanted to show you that styling can be a creative process and not just "which top goes with which skirt". Being a stylist feels like being an alchemist. It takes the right ingredients to make the perfect, sweet combination. While it's the designing that makes the garments, styling is what makes the look.

I bring you today 8 collages inspired by love that feature romantic, V Day-ready looks and the hottest items of the moment:

All sets are created by me.

flesh and bone - the pierces

This is a sweet, feminine Valentine's Day look: classic, elegant red dress, matching lips, a nude coat and a silver pop that adds a glam touch. The oxfords give a slightly androgynous touch to the delicate, ladylike ensemble.

Olivia Palermo Summed Up 3 Major Spring Trends In One Single Look

Hello my dearest readers,

If you've been reading this blog for a while now, it should be no secret to you that I adore anything Olivia Palermo. I'm not one of these people who idolizes celebrities for their way of dressing, I can draw some inspiration but usually that's it. However no one's looks are as compelling as Olivia's. She's truly a modern style icon. In fact she's just that. She's simply famous for having awesome style. It might not be much of an achievement for some, but I'm personally grateful for the constant outfit inspiration she provides me with.

What I love most about Olivia is that you can always rely on her to find out about the trends of the moment. Just a quick search on Pinterest - and there you have it, all the hottest looks for the upcoming season. 

Now that the Holiday season is long gone, I can only crave one thing - spring and summer (okay that's technically two things). Sunny meadows, long walks in the country, endless beaches, evening breezes and ice cream. Just like in that Passenger song: "only miss the sun when it starts to snow".
It's that time of the year then, that I do most of my spring wishlist planning. And the things on top of my list have OP's seal of approval:

Shirt: Johanna Ortiz, Shoes: Dolce & Gabbana, Jeans: Frame Denim, Bag: Analeena

Let me break it down for you:

2015 vs 2016: The it-items of the new year

Hello my lovelies,

Happy Saturday! I'm still in my PJs, it's almost 3pm and I haven't had lunch yet. Woo hoo. I love to sleep in on the weekends - although who am I kidding I love to sleep in anyday if I can. I just find it way too hard to part ways with my bed on days when I don't have that many commitments. 

We're already halfway into January and I'm starting to see the trends forming for this year. Fashion is moving so rapidly these days, sometimes it's hard to catch up and take notice in the small but constant changes. This is what I love the most about fashion though, that it changes and adjusts itself to whatever socioeconomic shifts we're going through at the time. It feels as though fashion is a living creature, constantly fed by the evolution of our way of thinking, our ideas and our wishes.
