Mix This with That

MyStyle

Colorful dresses are starting to be my signature items. It is easy to do what I do. Mix high and low, mix elegant and sporty, mix business attire and comfort. You will see this trend everywhere, because, who could afford to dress in designer pieces from head to toe?

Fashion Empowers You

MyStories

I have always tried to mix together fashion with my profession. They don’t look alike. They have always been separate. I am a lawyer and law is supposed to be intelectual, intense and fulfilling. Fashion, on the other hand,  is supposed to be superficial, not a match with law and very ambiguous.

My vintage Gucci Belt

MyStyle

It was the first time in my life that all the good circumstances came together to finally have a designer peace in my hands. I own a Gucci belt, it is mine!

Every time I saw it in a blog, in a picture, in a magazine, on a friend, I thought, this belt has to be mine. I guess the proverb ‘think with your mind and you will have it in your hand’ it’s true.

High it up

MyStyle

All my Christmas shopping were mum’s style. High-waist dresses, pants, skirts and a beautiful vintage belt that will give a stylish touch to my wardrobe. I haven’t felt that comfortable with any trend in my entire life. It adds elegance to otherwise regular clothes. It gives the feeling of having a fashionable style that is so difficult to achieve with other trends. It gives the impression of really dressing up!

Ethical Fashion

MyStories

It is really difficult to not having second thoughts about my love for fashion when I see how all of our consumption is affecting the environment and the poorest people on Earth. The Fashion Revolution Week and Earth Day on April 22, brought the perfect opportunity to ask myself who made the clothes that I am wearing, to think about how much did I pay for them and how long are they going to last in my closet, because, let’s face it, me, you and almost every one, play a big part in this ugly cycle of waisting and human exploitation.

Visible Stripes

MyStyle

As a huge fan of Sex & The City, I remember vividly ‘The Real Me’ episode, when Carrie Bradshaw was asked to participate as a real model on a fashion show. Carrie was going to use a beautiful blue sequined dress by Dolce & Gabbana, but instead of that, she was left with a pair of jeweled panties that probably woke up her deepest fears in relation to her body. She modelled it anyway, the right attitude empowered her to go out and looked as well as she wanted to.

After watching that Sex & The City chapter ‘I couldn’t help but wonder,’ should our personal style evolve with the same speed as the years pass, or can we keep it intact and rock the timeless pieces we have in our wardrobes no matter how old we are?

Mixing It Up

MyStyle 

We have seen a shift from strict rules to a more relaxed approach when choosing colours, textures and prints. Mixing blue and black, red and pink or mixing an animal print with a Scottish kind of luck was only permitted if you were a clown in a circus show. But a change in our imagination took over those rules and let us in front of an infinitive path towards creativity.

Do You Take Care Of Your Friends?

MyStories

I feel nostalgic just to think about how many good friends have disappeared from my life. The circumstances in which we met have changed, I say to myself. But a bitter feeling comes to my heart while I realise that my excuse cannot justify the fact that I did nothing to stop our friendship from vanishing. I know I could have done more. I could have call, or visit, or write, but I didn’t. Life kept me busy and what is worse, life is still keeping me busy, or at least that is what I keep saying to my self.

Fashion is Everything but Frivolous

MyStyle

A significant number of people think that fashion is frivolous and unnecessary. Why would somebody spend money on a skirt or a pair of shoes when it is hard even to pay the rent? Why would somebody loose time  taking about fashion when there are more important things to worry about in life? Read More
