Over My… NECK!

I was loking for scarfs another day, and I realized that I only know one way to use it (the European Loop).
Yeah, that’s really bad, because don’t matter how beautiful and different my scarves are, they will look all the same thing!

I was so unhappy with this, that I started to look for every possible way to roll it around my neck and in this search found this A.M.A.Z.I.N.G video at YouTube. Now I’m sharing it with you, even because I know how much a scarf can increase an outfit!

So, here is 25 Ways to Wear a Scarf in 4.5 Minutes…

There’s a few ideas of scarves for you, hope you like…

My dear and eternal love, Hermès, deserve a post only about their scarves, and I’ll do it, but I couldn’t let them out of this post.

So, my sweeties, I only choose scarves perfect for summer and mid-season but that you can also use’em in winter.
I love when women use them with brooches and you should wait for my next REALLY REALLY REALLY special post to see that!

LOVE you guys!! 😉

Gone With the Leopard

I never told this to anyone else before. I was afraid of what would people say, but I can’t control it anymore…

I LOVE ANIMAL PRINTS!!

Oh God, I said that! What? Am I not the onl one????

YEEEEEE!!! But I always know that, I just needed a bit of drama in this post!

There’s a fierce factor in all animal prints!
Confinance, power, luxury, passion, drama
Everything is maximized when a woman wear it!

 

It’s a trend for next year, but I guess animals never were out.

Yeah, yeah, Yves and Dior were the greates percusros of all animal prints, but I really L.O.V.E the way Cavalli shows it!
Actually he is the designer who most use it. His brightest dresses had at least one detail in animal-prints.

 

 

Dresses, suits, pants, scarves, shoes…
Aptions are uncountable if you want to be a safari girl, but I’m warning you:

ONCE YOU START IT, YOU’LL NEVER STOP!

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t be afraid of try it out. There to many people saying this is over, but we know it will never ends.

I love this eternal trend, and hope you start to like it too. 😉

 

Thanks to my dear friend Giovanna for the idea!

I’m “Bagging” You

You know I’m a stupid saudosist man, so I would be neglecting myself if I didn’t a post about bags.
Ok, not only bags but the ones I consider really special.

Those aren’t just acessories, are most of all history, charm, symbols of elegance and the most desireds fashion items ever.

I’m pretty sure you’ll agree with me when I say that the timeless Hermès, Chanel and Louis Vuittons will always be a fashionista dream (tell it to Posh) and we really don’t know why! We don’t know what’s wrong with us, but when we stare one, always go insane.
The perfectly treated leather, the perfect sewing and all the mistery behind them get minds nuts since they’re released. All of them have a history of significance and with a historical context meaning, but I won’t botter you with this (Yeah, I’m boring!).

My dream is Victoria II from Hermès, but wouldn’t mind if I got any other one from here!

So let’s go to what’s matter…

HERMÈS

1. Birkin


(This one above is the Hermès Matte Crocodile Birkin Bag, the 3rd most expensive bag in the world)

2. Kelly

(I’m pretty sure Grace is using this handbag in Heaven!)

———-LES KELLYS DE LEILA———–

3. Victoria II
Ok, ok. I’m just  showing this bag because I love it!!!

————————————————-


DIOR

Lady Dior (FOREVER!)

————————————————-

CHANEL

2.55

 

——–The Boy New Collection (Spring 2011)——–

————————————————-

GUCCI

1. The Jackie

 

2. Every Bag with “The Web”

  

————————————————-


LOUIS VUITTON

1. Speedy (25 and 30)

  

 

2. Alma

 

I like to observe how designers construct and destruct the shape of them, evolupting this handbags all over the seasons. And we want them more time after time!

I’m always begging someone to give me one of these, but I have no idea why no one wanna do it!!! hehehe

LOOOVE YOU!

Hope you enjoyed! LOVE YOU!

Sweet Air Scape

(Play it first, then read the rest of the post)

Morning draft
Softly kissing my skin…
Like rose petals
Going through my face

 

The soft wind through my hair
Feeling like smooth velvet

 

Hard breathing comes clean
Tough thoughts became brighter.

I just need to feel the breeze between my fingers
And with my eyes closed hear the sound of the wind.

 

 

Because this is my sedative.

My lonely getaway from the mess my life has been.

(I LOVE this las photo!)

I Give Up: COLOR BLOCKING

I tried, as hard as you can ever imagine, to fight against this, but now need to admit:
I’M DEEPLY IN LOVE FOR COLOR BLOCKING!

(When even Lady Dior get Color Block, you need to shut up and get used to it!)

I know is a little late to do this post, even because everyone else already did it, but now there is a love feeling for it growing inside me.

After Gucci and Prada Spring shows, it became this magnificent trend that all we know. I’m not fan of too many colors or patterns together, but, moderated, is a great opportunity to wear crazy colors.

 

 

Maybe it’s just my eyes, but the color blocking do not work with any color combination. Bold pinks, oranges, yellows and purples are the tones of the trend, allowed with darker greens and blues, all mixed with a huge variety of neutral colors.
If you’re a addept, PLEASE, be carefull to don’t look like came from Teletubbies. From runaways to streets, there’s lots of adjustments necessaries to don’t look insane (or at 80’s!!!!!).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you’re new in color blocking, start with shoes or amazing bags like everyone else – shirts, blouses or anything like that is to easy! Then take bold color pants and as fast as you can see you’ll be wearing a head to toe full colored outfit!

Thank God that now that I get used to it, designers are doing the same for next season! Probably not strong as now, but I’ll be wearing the same!

(for me, this look Raquel Zimmermann wore at Gucci’s Spring 2011 show, is the great representant of the Color Block Movement!)

Taking a Break!

I need to rest, take a little vacation to take back my ideas!

YES, unfortunatelly I’ll need to do a little blog vacation! As the gorgeous Brit from Style on the Couch said to me “When inspiration gets hard you should stop, throw yourself into the things you love, and watch the inspiration come back twofold.” and, of course, I TOTALLY agreed with her!
(YOU NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT HER BLOG, HER STYLE IS JUST STUNNING, REALLY! She’s like my female version, just don’t tell her about it!! heheheheh LUV U girl!)

Anyway, I won’t say good bye, because I’ll be waiting for you when I get back!

LOVE YOU ALL!!!!! You make me happy with your comments, ideas and critics! You have no idea how important is to me when people enjoy my “work” once everyone else judged me for the same reasons!
I have you and your blogs deeply in my heart!!!!!

So, you may laugh but those photos make me feel in vacation, so enjoy it while I’m out!!!!

 

 

So Sweeties, Hope you don’t forget me! hehhe

REALLY LOVE YOU!

(I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS LAST PICTURE…)
