Italian Feel

_MG_2984

Hi guys! I loved the easiness of this look: a bare shoulder, a frayed hem, a monochrome palette. It is my perfect combination for a casual work day. Plus my feet appreciate the flat, classic Audrey Hepburn style pumps. I hope you guys like it!

PS: I was so lucky to step into the chic boutique hotel of Il Bongustaio. This petite, 5 room, hotel is a certain oasis in the middle of the city. It transported  me to an Italian villa, with its beautiful gardens, filled with cascading bougainvilleas; its dome shaped hallways, and its marbled floors. A soothing place, that certainly goes well with the italian cuisine served at the, open to all public, next door restaurant.

Cold Shoulder

_MG_7790

Morning everyone! As much as I’m self-conscious about my arms, there is always that urge to wear tops that will allow me to showcase a bit of them. With the pro-shoulder movement we’ve been witnessing in the past seasons, this need is perfectly covered. The super sexy trend allows me to uncover my shoulders without having to unveil my not-so-toned arms. Here is an outfit I wore a little while ago. I hope you guys like it!

L’Oreal’s Experience

_MG_6044
Hi guys! My hair has been particularly hard to handle lately with the humidity, the heat and its length. I have to say it can get a little bit frustrating. A couple of weeks ago, I had the luck of trying L’Oreal’s Steam Pod treatment, which hydrated my hair, removed the its frizz and filled it with life. A total wonder! This was not the first treatment I had, but it surely was a great one. I noticed the difference not only on the day I got it, but after showering a few times as well. If you get the chance, I encourage you to try it too! Here are some shots we took on the day I got the treatment done.

A big hug!

Quick Fix

_MG_6104
Hi everyone! I trust your week is going well!
I have been told many, many times how hard it is to give me a gift. A gift that I will like and cherish. Well, my godmother sure hit the sweet spot when she bought this dress for me! The only reason why I haven’t worn it that much is because it is actually a bit big on me, and I just haven’t come around to tailoring it. However, I like it so much that I have used it a couple of times already. It struck me that wearing a t-shirt or body underneath would be a great solution to my current fitting problem. Add a waist belt to the mix, and you’ve got yourself a pretty cool ensemble. I encourage you all to get a tad creative when fixing these sorts of inconveniences. You never know what good look you can end up with!

Have a lovely weekend!

Milkshake & Fries

Hi guys! To be completely honest, I am not used to wearing power suits. I know, right?! A bit shocking… The thing is there is something imposing about power suits, which is really the same reason they give off a strong look. A woman that knows how to wear one is also a woman who is confident, and who is not afraid of being the center of attention. She is a woman that conveys a fearless personality, which is sexy AF! So yes, they are a tremendous statement to wear, and if you dare to do it, believe me, it will be a transforming experience. I wore this black and white printed suit a few weeks ago. Needless to say, it was a total hit! The dashes of red on the earrings, the bag and the lips were the right choice to pull the look together. I hope you guys like it!

Oh!…A small tip: if you don’t feel like risking it that much with print, try a more demure version of the power suit in a neutral solid colour.

Have a great day and dare to suit up!

Black Fringe

In my opinion, one can never have too many little black dresses. This one is perfect for a chill weekend in town. I paired it with pewter sandals and a statement top handle bag.  Continue reading
