Santa List

Christmas is near; I guess  that  your christmas tree is already brightening up your living room, but what about your gift lists? Giving presents may feel quite fulfilling, but picking up the ideal ones for the people you love may be quite of a pain in the ass sometimes. Here follow some ideas that I consider helpful, in case you get stuck in the way:

For Her:
  1. A statement, furry waistcoat to wear above her leather jackets.
  2. A cute, girly dress that will keep her stylish throughout any kind of family gathering.
  3. A fluffy cardigan, because no girl ever said no to a new piece of knitwear.
  4. A leopard purse, because we all own a black one.
  5. A new pair of high-heeled shoes, as -simple or extravagant- they always make us feel a bit more feminine.
  6. An extra-stylish semi-formal pair of brogues, because you need some dressy flats for any kind of occasion that a pair of trainers won't do the job.
  7. Uggs, because after all these hours spent in festive, yet uncomfortable shoes, stepping into a pair of those will feel like stepping on heaven.
For Him:
  1. A new T-shirt, because no man ever had enough.
  2. A crisp shirt, because he'll definitely need a new one, having to attend so many occasions.
  3. A leather jacket, because boys need it as much as we do.
  4. A warm, cozy hoodie, because no man ever looked bad in a hoodie.
  5. A piece of quality luggage, because most men do not feel the importance of having one, until they do.
  6. A pair of extravagant trainers, to spice up things in their shoe collection.
  7. A pair of Oxfords, to make him feel Beckham af.
Have a jolly season sweethearts!

The Little (or not) Black Bag

Little or not, black bags and purses are the thing, especially during winter. No one can deny the versatility and usefulness of a black bag, and the way it can transform an outfit. Backpacks are particularly in, no matter if they are big or small, along with pouches and classic flaps. Irrespective of most people's love-hate relationship with animal prints, a leopard lover like me would not hesitate to root for the style value of a leopard piece too, as long as it is chosen with mindfulness and grace. Leopard pieces can be considered as neutral, as they really pop a seemingly dull outfit, based on the winter pallette of black and grey. Bold or not, they choice is yours. Be wise.

Is It Autumn Yet?

Black leather, suede, studs and tassels, the new season is so exciting! I know it's still fairly hot, but no fashion lover can deny the thrill of a new pair of shoes. Let's be honest, when your beach holiday is over, there is no other joy to crave than your first warm coffee of the season, while snuggling in cozy knits. Just like any other winter, I'll stick to my basic palette of black, grey, white and leopard, along with some gem hues. Make sure that you add up some basics, mixing them with some more exciting pieces like aztec prints and damask velvet ones. Septembers are always the hastiest of months, as I am trying to recover from my very long summer holiday, while hopelessly trying to put my life in an organized mood once again Until then, online shopping and the latest Vogue issue laying on my bedside table will do the job.

Some More

June is coming to an end and summer collections are in full bloom. Summery designs, airy clothes, cute dresses, bikinis, and sandals I bet there will be nothing missing from your suitcase. As many times as I've tried to go back on the way  I used to pack in the past, I can't help but laugh at the way I was overthinking the whole process; it seems way ridiculous the way I thought that this 8th pair of shoes would be useful in my 7-day holiday. Now, a little older but much wiser, I can brag about being mature enough to carry exactly the amount of garments I will need, plus one or two extra bits and bobs just in case. The unmistakable process of trial and error one would say, and I couldn't agree more. So, don't overthink; pack as many bikinis as you wish (splurge on that, you'll spend your whole day in these), some white basics that will brighten up your much coveted tan, and two or three statement pieces to rock the nights. Have fun and take a lot of pictures, featuring the most important accessory you own; that smile. Kiss, kiss.

Gym Apparel

As if deciding what to wear in your everyday life was not challenging enough, girls are required to decide what to wear at the gym too. Personally I avoid short stuff and all these amazing printed leggings around the market (remember Beyonce's Bootylicious? yes, that.) but I always love watching lean girls sporting them and practicing their yoga poses so effortlessly gorgeous. For me, dark neutral colors always worked best, just like layering does, in order to avoid all these sweaty stains I consider inappropriate. No matter what anyone tells you though, always go for the apparel that works best for you, cause what you do for your body is already enough to feel well about that body. Either it's pink, black or blended you are the one to bring those leggings in life. Make it worth the stare.

Because I'm Happy

Pharrell Williams + Adidas Originals = Superstar Supercolor Pack

Just a little while aftrer the re-rise of the Stan, Adidas Originals found its way to remain on the spotlight by collaborating with the multi-talented Mr.Happy, who managed to relaunch the classic line of Superstar in the happiest version possible. Available globally since March 27, the Pharrell Superstar line will be in stores in more than 50 colours, celebrating personal expression and individuality more successfully than ever. As Pharrell himself noted "Supercolor is a celebration of equality through diversity. With 50 colours of the Superstar, everybody will be able to select his or her colour. It is more diverse than any pack ever before and therefore it is more individual than any pack ever before. With every shoe treated exactly the same, all colours are equal. No matter what colour you choose, you can be part of Supercolor. Choose your colour." Will you be able to pick just one?

The Backpack

Current favorite: David Jones sturdy backpack
I am one of those girls who literally carry their lives in their bags; that is to say, my precious handbags usually carry my books, my agenda, my wallet, my make-up bag, one or two Tupperwares with packed meals and anything that may come in handy throughout the day. Not to mention all these spare stuff like lip balms, cereal bars, pineapples (ok, I may have to stop to the greengrocer's too, where am I supposed to carry these things?) that will probably give me the strongest biceps ever. And although I literally adore that stylish burden, it would be true to say that sometimes it sucks the life out of me, leaving me hope that one day I'll have my hands free to carry my grocery bags or browse through the endless racks of clothing while shopping. Then like a deus ex machina, here comes the much loved backpack, which is here to leave us girls light as a feather. You may not be able to stack everything in it, but it will surely give you that much coveted carefree feeling that you may pursue from time to time. I have gone for that cute, black David Jones beauty that will look nice in any kind of weather and does not confine my free fashion spirit to a limited spectrum of choices, because of its versatility and simplicity. The choices are endless, choose yours wisely!

The Stan

At the beginning of the season I swore to myself that no matter how I liked the Stan, I wouldn't get my hands on a pair, first, because they look like they are the new Air Force, a shoe that everybody wore through the past two years, and second, I decided not to be yet another victim of the Adidas' -successful, I must admit- marketing policy. And there it was, that black/leopard combo that made my heart skip a beat and got into my online shopping cart without even noticing. I am a proud Stan Smith owner and I am not afraid to tell. The iconic model, dated back to the 1970s, endorsed by the famous American tennis player, Stan Smith, looks so unbearably stylish in its new animal print look, and it is sure to make even the toughest fashionable hearts melt. At least, I didn't get the white/green version I was intending to.

Sales, Sales, Sales!

Here comes that wonderful time of the year when prices go down and mood goes up. Grasp that amazing opportunity to get that extra little something you wanted in order to pamper yourselves (Ugg slippers, come to momma) or invest in that leather satchel that seemed quite extravagant a few months ago. I know that the economy is not in favor of splurging, but items meant to stay in our wardrobes for many seasons to come are worth the trouble. Either you are a frugal fashionista, always shopping wisely, or you are that menace gal aiming to all these statement pieces, sales are the perfect opportunity to offer a breath of fresh air to your daily outfits at the minimum cost.

Enjoy your shopping!
