HAIR CVT: JOHN FRIEDA ALFORD STREET

Wednesday, 15 October 2014

Not long ago I went to get my hair done, and I used Hair CVT to find the best salon that suited me and what I was looking for. So basically this site is for people who still haven't found their favourite salon and want to see some of the work the hairdressers have already done. 

This site is very easy to use, firstly you can pick out all the things that suit you from the side bar, and it shows you some work the hairdressers have already done, and if you like what you see you can just book yourself in with that hairstylist. If you want to find a salon by location, there's an option for that too. I found this site very useful as I could search for what I wanted and see how well the stylist can work. When I saw this haircut, I knew I wanted to go with Chloe Westley from John Frieda Alford St, as I wanted something similar to that style but maybe a bit curlier. (See the end result at the end of the post.)

LFW: Busardi SS15

Thursday, 2 October 2014

At the Busardi fashion show, there was so many amazing red carpet dresses. And even though I may never get to go to a red carpet event, I still wouldn't mind having one of these dresses. 

This collection was entitled 'Air', and they were inspired by the South American micro-environments. They included all the elements from the nature that you could find there. All of the dresses had flowers, leaves or feathers included in them, and all of the colours were presented in a natural way, so the whole collection would work well together. 

The hair and make-up was made by AOFM Pro, and they done an amazing job (see bellow in close-up images). All the models had elegant but messy hair and I think it gave the whole look a cool edge, which worked with all the dresses perfectly! Some of the models were wearing big earpieces, which were also inspired by nature, but they were very sparkly, so they did a great job adding them to the collection!


LFW: Huishan Zhang SS15

Thursday, 25 September 2014

As we all know, it was London Fashion Week not long ago, and sadly I haven't posted anything on it, yet! I went to see lots of shows and I will do posts on the best ones I saw or enjoyed watching online. 

I was very excited when I got an invite to see Huishan Zhang's Summer/Spring 2015 collection, because I knew I would be drooling over the amazing dresses. And of course I was.. 

My favourite dress was this one, because as soon as I saw it, I wished I was the girl wearing it. This dress just reminded me of my childhood and when I wanted to be a princess. (I still do, but shh!) I think the dress says it all, the colours go perfectly together and who wouldn't want to feel like a princess?!

LOOK DU JOUR: MONOCHROME MONDAY

Monday, 1 September 2014

Hey guys, sorry for not posting in a while, I was sick for a long time but from now I'm back on track and will be posting more!

For today's outfit, I wanted to wear something light before the summer goes away. We have to enjoy every second of it before it starts to rain and gets really cold.

I'm not sure if I mentioned it before, but I am obsessed with giraffes. I have all kinds of giraffes and objects with giraffe print on them, so when I found this giraffe tattoo I had to have it! I got these temporary tattoos from TTTattoo, and they have so many and you can personalise your own too.

LOOK DU JOUR: BRIGHT DAY

Wednesday, 30 July 2014


Today I was in Soho with my best friend to catch up and enjoy the Sun. I hope all of you are enjoying the weather as much as I am before it disappears. It took me a while to get ready but at the end it happened. Somedays I just feel like I have nothing in my closet but it always works out somehow. I'm sure all of you girls are the same when it comes to getting ready.

LOOK DU JOUR: A SLICE OF SUMMER

Wednesday, 23 July 2014

As all of you know the weather has been up and down lately, but hopefully it will stay sunny for a very long time. I have noticed that people always complain when it's either cold and rainy, but people also complain when it's hot. Why? Can't they just enjoy one or the other? I am extremely happy that it's hot and don't have to worry about layers! I mean I wouldn't mind sitting next to a pool or the beach in this weather, but what can I do in London, just accept the fact it's a city and enjoy the weather while it lasts. 


8TH JULY HAUTE COUTURE: AUTUMN/WINTER 2014-15 - paris

Chanel

At the Chanel's fashion show, there were some very interesting outfits. Some I absolutely loved, but there were some that just didn't really make sense to me. Of course I will explain more of that bellow. 

Throughout the show I got an impression of Oliver Twist or something that people wore in the 18th century, and to be honest it was very surprising from Chanel. Usually Karl Lagerfeld makes the outfits look very classy, but this time he showed a different side of his talent, historical. He is a very talented designer, as everyone knows, and this is why I'm not surprised he could make this collection work with his inspiration from the past. 

All the outfits were paired with flip-flops, and this was a different turn from the usual. I'm not saying it was a bad turn, but not what I was expecting. The models weren't only all wearing flip-flops, but caps and quiffs on the back of their heads. I'm not really into hats/caps as they don't really suite me, but any of these I would absolutely wear without arguing. Speaking of accessories, the bags were satchel bags, and they weren't at all inspired by the 18th century. Very trendy and fashion forward. I really liked how they still matched the outfit, and made the outfit chic and up to date. 

A-line and Trapeze shapes were seen in dresses and skirts on the runway, and these cocktail attire had a nice palette of greys, (pale gold, black and smoky white). In the show I've seen a bit of crystals in different places, I do think they gave the whole show a bit of an elegance and excitement to it. Crystals are always great on clothes, of course if you over do it you might end up looking trashy.

(Please continue reading, you will find my comments on the outfits at the end of each look.)



7TH JULY HAUTE COUTURE: AUTUMN/WINTER 2014-15 - paris

Giambattista Valli

A lot of the outfits were combined with shirts, which made the whole collection so much more interesting, it gave it an edge. From Giambattista Valli's past shows I have noticed that he likes to make the outfits more stiff and bold, but now this collection gave me the impression of a bit more fabulous and more girly. I noticed that the outfits from this show, show off the woman's shape more effectively than before. Love it!

The whole collection was fresh and energetic, especially the twisted turbans made the whole show so much cooler. I will be getting myself some of that! Of course that's not what the whole show was about, but it was something I couldn't get out of my head. Most of the looks had a striped monochrome pattern on them, and I'm absolutely obsessed with monochromes, and hope it will stay around for a while! 

There was ballgowns, which had lots of layers of taffeta and feather, and I couldn't of been anymore exited about them. They were just so elegant, but had a little bit of an edge to it. Of course I wasn't expecting ballgowns to be mixed with shirts, but they pulled it off, and couldn't of looked any more fashion forward. All of the outfits were combined with Moscot sunglasses, and that was another amazing idea, as they will make the whole outfit so much more thrilling. A pair of sunglasses are always needed, never heard anybody say that a pair of sunglasses made a look worse, have you?

Versace

At the Versace show they had a classic backdrop with a runway lined with fur. All of the outfits gave an impression of sexiness and elegance. The jackets and skirts were combined sheer ladder inserts and  silver buckles which gave the outfits a bit of an edge. I have seen pressed pencil trousers layered under lean skirts and I think they couldn't of been any cooler, hopefully everyone's going to be taking it in and it can become a big thing very soon. (I will be trying it out for sure!)
