The Blush Pink Trend That Will Change Your Wardrobe

Featured

Don’t lump the serene color of blush pink into your mindset of Barbie dolls, bright pink nail polish or sugar sweet bubblegum. Blush pink is a soft pale hue that is one of the happiest colors of nature that veers toward a neutral color to be styled for a natural and contemporary look. Think of blush as the insides of seashells, pale peonies and roses and the graceful swirl of a morning sunrise. Don’t you already feel happy? Blush is another comfort color to be used in those places where you want to relax and wind down from your many hubs of activity. Let’s “pink differently” about blush.

“My outfit is the perfect combination of two awesome trends; the blush pink trend and the lace trend! The intricacies of this lace detailing make for a truly feminine look which I absolutely love!”

American Girl

Featured

Today is Memorial Day, the day of remembrance for everyone who has died serving in the American armed forces. Although I was born in Europe, I’ve now spent almost 5 amazing years here in the States, and I’ve worked incredibly hard to achieve my Extraordinary Ability Green Card. I’m extremely proud to call America my new home, especially when I’ve worked so hard to get here!

“…and of course—indulge in the annual Memorial Day sales that all of your favorite brands are gifting you for the unofficial start of summer”

Living La Dolce Vita in Rome

Featured

As much as its great monuments – the Colosseum, St Peter’s Basilica, the Pantheon – what I love about Rome are its details: the cobbled lanes and hidden corners, the vivid colours, the aroma of freshly ground coffee wafting out of its cafes. Rome’s streets and piazzas are an endless source of entertainment and, as a history buff, I get a real kick when I think of all the legendary events that have taken place here. Rome is also a fabulous place to eat well and there’s little I love more than a long lunch at a favorite trattoria.

“My absolute favorite activity while I’m here is obviously shopping at Via Condotti and the Spanish Steps where I indulge with my Italian lovers… Dolce Gabbana, Zanotti, Versace, Pucci, Guardiani, and Gucci”

Transforming from Winter to Spring

Spring is on it’s way, which means it’s time to think about transitioning your wardrobe. I’m about to toss away my Winter coats, and will be living in my trench coats from now on. I’m thrilled to finally put peep-toes, elegant thigh-highs and ballerinas back on my Winter-dry feet (note to myself; MUST book that pedicure asap!)

“Although they run half a size too small, and I remember not having enough money to pay my mortgage that month… Ahhh, Priorities!”

Designers’ Latest Romance With Florals

The SS catwalks served up an eye-popping bouquet of florals. From that scene-stealing summer party dress, to the Formica prints that will energise your new season office wear – 2017’s fashion optimism begins with bold blooms (and they are anything but prim). In The Devils Wears Prada, fictional editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly drolly states, “Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.” And while there may be a lot of truth to her statement – designers ranging from Gucci to Givenchy and Erdem are making the print feel cool again for SS’17.

“It’s a sign of Spring. It’s fun, flirty, and helps you achieve a girlie look fit for a warm day”
