My 2014 highlights

Happy 31st Everyone! As this year ends today, I have for you the last part of my 2014 favorites. This time, I summed up the most influential trends, designers, campaigns... 

1. The YEAR OF "NORMCORE" 

"Normcore" has been here for some decades now, but it was developed as a term only last year in October by the trend agency K-Hole. It´s main idea is that you rather fit in than stand out. Denim trousers, plain t-shirts, comfy sweaters, hoodies and label-free designs are the main characteristics of the most widespread trend. But be careful, this doesn´t mean that you don´t care, what you wear! Just patiently choose the correct items...

The best "celeb" street style looks of 2014

Hello, dears! Hope you had a great day even though it´s freezing outside... 

Anyways, as I have previously mentioned, I have for you another "analysis" of the almost finished year. This time, I´m turning the spotlight on the stars, whose style inspired me the most. Or we can also say that those are the best "celebrity" street style looks. I know, that you probably won´t be surprised that I contained Kanye & Rihanna. However, I have to admit that in addition to these two, my favorite street style icons of this year are the Jenner sisters. I´m totally loving Kylie´s edgy looks and Kendall´s model-off-duty style...

No matter what, I believe that when you have some fashion taste and combine simple pieces like Miranda or Rosie, you won´t do anything wrong... Let me know what you think :)

2014 Red Carpet/Party Queens

Hi Everyone! As the days go by, the end of this year is fast approaching. So I think this is the perfect time to recap the year 2014, and so be ready to what the next year might bring! 

In the next few days I´ll be posting my bests from the still ongoing year. And here I should stop by the word "my" to strengthen that it´s only my opinion. However, if you think I forgot something, I´ll be very happy if you let me know. 

There were many nights, when I tried to inform you and upload photos from various events right after or even during the show. I believe that everyone, who is at least a little bit interested in fashion, is excited about the newest red carpet, after-party, front-row and movie premiere looks. That´s why I tried to pick the best ones from this year. My choices were not made just because of the beautiful dresses worn, but also due to the make-up, hair style and the overall aura of the person... 

Hope we´d agree on some of them.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

On my wishlist... Kylie Jenner´s Christmas shopping look

Hi Everyone! It´s been a rough couple of weeks, but finally it´s time to relax and spend your days with family and friends. Even though right now you may still be baking, cleaning up or making your holiday decorations, I guarantee you that in a few hours you´ll forget all your problems while watching favorite Christmas fairytale.

However, I have to share with you the most amazing sweater dress I´ve lately seen and maybe give you some late Christmas gift inspiration... Since the moment I saw Kylie wearing this Opening Ceremony dress with a zip detail I have completely fallen in love with her outfit. It looks so fresh, modern, but also comfortable and chic. Perfect for almost any occasion! Although the price is not as we´d want it to be, I hope they will be on sale. And for those of you, who will be searching for its cheaper version, I suggest very similar dresses from ASOS. 

Hope you love this look like I do,

Fave Street Style Looks from the past week

Hi Everyone! I´m sorry that I´m not posting a lot these days, but actually I have three exams in the next two days, my "diploma" thesis, work and Christmas gifts, obviously...

However, I couldn´t resist to show you my favorite street style moments from the past week. Each of them is totally different, but I find them all really inspiring! 

Hope you also love them & make sure to relax and take care of yourself during those busy days, too.

Rihanna´s favorite winter accessory... and mine too!

Hi Everyone! Hope you have already bought all of your Christmas presents, ´cause the traffic jams on the streets and also in the shops are driving me crazy nowadays...
 
Anyways, I have for you some winter inspiration from my most favorite girl, my all-time crush Rihanna. As you all know, I love her style, her personality, her songs, her attitude and the way she makes everything how she wants it to be done. Recently I have noticed that she wore the same winter jacket for several times. And, as usually, I´ve totally fallen in love with this Isabel Marant Étoile Flor Quilted Coat... so much that I had to buy a similar one, or at least in similar colors, too. I bought it from River Island, so I highly recommend you to have a look at their site, because they have the best stuff and currently, they also have some seasonal sale!
 
Can´t wait to take some photos of my new jacket for you! Have a nice week!

VSFS 2014

Hi Everyone! It´s been a very long day today and I can only imagine that not only for me, but also for all the Victoria´s Secret angels, which took part in its 2014 fashion show.
 
There are two main reasons, why I love December... Christmas & Victoria´s Secret Fashion Show! So you can see that it was a really huge event for me and I could only wish to be there today. However, from the photos I´ve seen up to now, I have to say that this year´s show was much better than the last year´s one. Maybe because of the change in place, but I also loved the themes this year.
 
It was the first time after 19 years that the show took place abroad, at the Earls Court Exhibition Center in London. Also for the first time in the history of this event, two Dream Angels Fantasy Bras were shown! Each worth $2 million. There were six segments: Gilded Angels, Exotic Traveler, Dream Girl, Fairy Tale, University of Pink and Angel Ball. All the well-known VS Angels alongside a new one, Elsa Hosk, and other models showed us their toned bodies veiled in lot of lace and satin.
 
Although all the models are incredibly beautiful, I think that each year their bodies look worse and they´re starting to look like female "Transformers". I know that they´re working out a lot, but sometimes less is more. A typical example of this trend is for me Iza and Doutzen. What I actually didn´t like about the 2014 show was Ed Sheeran´s "Thinking Out Loud" song. Even though this song is one of my favorite and I was incredibly happy that Ed was going to perform it and he sang his heart out, I think it did not fit to the Exotic Traveler segment very well. Despite this, I loved all the song choices (Taylor Swift, Hozier, Ariana Grande and Ed) and I must say that Taylor sometimes looked better than the actual models (mainly on the pic with Alessandra).
 
Finally, the biggest stars of the 2014 VSFS were for me Candice, Behati, Lily Donaldson and Elsa... and their heels :) ! Can´t wait to see the videos and the whole show, which airs on Dec 9th on CBS.

P.S.: Keep in mind that this is only from my point of view! Some other photos are also available here.

Because no one can wear Burberry as nobly as Suki does ...

Hi Everyone! I´m so sorry that I´m not posting a lot these days, but I´m currently writing my final "diploma" thesis (or at least I should be)... However, I could not resist to write you about the best red carpet look from the last two days.
 
Maybe you´ve already seen that I uploaded some photos from the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards and from the British Fashion Awards, which are actually taking place right now in London. And I have to admit that the most beautiful looks from both of these events were seen on model Suki Waterhouse. Both times she´s chosen ice-blue Burberry gowns, which highlighted her pale skin and newly dyed blonde hair. BTW... Doesn´t she sometimes look like a newer version of Brigitte Bardot?!
 
Anyways, no one can wear Burberry as nobly as she does! Hope you love it, too and if you want to find other outfits from these events, go to my Facebook page.
 
Have a beautiful rainy night!
