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!)

WE HEART GRACE!

There’s something that kind of defines my personality: my passion for the past.
Mostly the glam part of it (yeah, yeah, big news!).
And last week, I’ve been  really into this. The Royal Wedding (did you heard about that? No?) brought me a nostalgic feeling for traditions and vintage things, and I’m still in this magical atmosphere (is really, really weird: feels like I’m floating alone and that, strangely, makes me happy!).

I won’t prolong it, but will tell you a thing about this wedding.
Guess what… It inspired me.

Tons of things in that event made me dream, but in the moment I saw Kate “Gorgeous” Middleton in that marvelous McQueen I said: “Grace Kelly must be getting CRAZY in her grave right now!”

Well, you’ve seen Kate’s dress. They are very different, but when I first saw her, I thought this! But yes, they’re both stunning!!!)

Soooo, this post will be about the ONE AND ONLY…

GRACE KELLY

One of the most beautiful woman ever, and the prettier princess of all time, she is a legend of cinema and style icon until our days (and it seems that will be long be!). Hermès has a bag inspired by her (one of their best selling items) and beloved by fashionistas all over the world, she brought elegance to Hollywood in times when voluptous women, like Marilyn and Bardot, were the great sensations.
So this post is about Grace inspirating nowadays fashion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forever glorious, stylish ans inspirational!
Forever in our hearts, Grace Kelly.

Brown Temptation

“Is the most wonderful time of the year.”
That is what the music says about Christmas, but to me,
THIS ALL ABOUT EASTER!!!

I could play good boy and say it is about renovation, reborn and everything else, of course this really matters, but if I say that’s all about Easter would not be true…

I LOVE EASTER BECAUSE OF THE CHOCOLATES.

When april comes, I have cacao dreams every night, I smell chocolate everywhere I go, I miss this flavor every single day.
I feel like an addicted, need chocolate to survive more than need oxygen.

 

 

 

And a weird thing is that chocolate always remind me sex, beauty and sensuality.
Maybe because numerous of women preffer chocolate to wine, people who eat chocolate regularly have a better sex life or just because a good chocolate give us a satisfaction and a pleasure that is ALMOST unique (it’s obvious the comparison!).

Hope you get brown dreams, because I’m preparing a post for Easter!!

LOVE YA!!

(Yeah, this is Heidi Klum – Germans are the people that most consume chocolate in the world!)
