Hello everyone!! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Mine was great, but is getting closer to May (end of the semester) and I'm going a little bit crazy ... I'm so excited cause this is going to be my last semester as a science graduate student!! Anyways spring is in the air, and I'm still obsess with pink clothes and accessories... Are you guys with a pink attitude too?

Dooney & Bourke Disney's Clutch Collection
For my spring break I made a visit to Mickey, and I had a great time!! This was my favorite souvenir, of course!!!
Recently I've been obsess with braiding my hair, I think it looks gorgeous and sophisticated, of course if you do it right... I've always like braids, but before my wonderful trip to London I just didn't think of it as glamorous... I went to London a while a go and while I was walking through Oxford St. (of course doing shopping!) I kept seeing a lot of the girls with their hair braided beautifully in ways that I didn't even thought I could, so I got inspired and now is one of my favorite things to do with my hair!
Here is a video a friend of mine found which I think is great and braid educational!!!
Also I wanted to share with you guys a channel in youtube that I love for makeup. These girls are amazing! They are pixiwoo from UK. I think I've seen all of their videos, haha!! Apparently UK is inspiring me...
Since season autumn/winter 2010 has ended here is a a brief review of what all of you should have in mind for the next autumn/winter 2011. I think it is great to know the new trends for the next seasons so you can start acquiring those special pieces early enough and start the season marvelously!
London Fashion Week A/W 11
70s are so back!
A/W is also going to be full of color!
This collection is beautifully classic and elegant. Take a look at the hat, it is so strong and full of character, oldie types of hat are definitely in! OMG and those 40s like boots, also full of strength and character. I could wear these and immediately feel strong!
Please write this down; skinny flare leg trousers in strong colors, definitely a must have for the next season.
These beautiful romantic-ish garments are alway in. These are so London, I'm a romantic/classic clothes addict, especially the London look!
PARIS Fashion Week A/W 11
This Burgundy one is my favorite garment!
Don't forget about the sequences!!
I'm telling you; oldie classy bags are the trend!!
As the 70s are coming back the designers express it in different ways, ELIE SAAB is accentuating the waist and shoulders. I adore this collection shoes, very modern and they definitely go with every garment; from vintage to modern! This is my favorite Paris A/W FW collection, is exquisite!!
Ohh Chanel!! So many things to say about you... Well I'm not sure if all of you agree with me, but I think that this is a really complicated collection. It is sort of like a contradiction, because many of them were very elegant and sophisticated garments, but with the addition of a very casual more street like trousers with boyish boots (please don't get me wrong I love the boots!). Another contradiction was that some of the garments were boyish looks but the fabrics were amazingly detailed with sequences and other girly details. Although this collection garments were very loose (wide leg trousers, wide coats and tops), this collection is still very Chanel; the fabrics, the details, the designs, pure Chanel. In my opinion this collection even has a take-home message; You can wear a beautiful garment that could make you look overdressed for the occasion or place, but by wearing something like these trendy boots you transform a sophisticated look into a more casual one.... mix and match, elegant doesn't always have to go with elegant, or classy with classy, or casual with casual, and the list goes on and on!!!!
don't spend all your life trying to be the coolest person around you,
you will never be happy with yourself.
(My shirt's message)
Oh details!! My pretty bracelets mean a lot to me. The white one (from like the ~60s) was a gift from my grandma and I try to wear it with everything, it makes me happy thinking of her! The green one with the flowers is from the Museum of Natural History (NY), which I've been a thousand times and I can't just get enough of it, I get away from reality in there!!! And last but not least, the silver balls bracelet with a big clear star, which was a present from a very lovely friend of mine!!! Which by the way she has a very nice blog called curious little thing http://curiouslittlething.blogspot.com/, you should all go and check her blog out!!!
My bright pink jeans & my inspirational shirt are from ZARA's Spring Collection, and my bright pink lipstick is from Mac's Venomous Villains Collection (Toxic Tale).
ZARA's collection is amazingly colorful (a lot of pink, green & blue), you should check it out!!!
Anyways if you are super busy and can't, here are some drops of color from the collection, ENJOY!!!
