Maxi Skirts….

After watching the videos for Lanvin’s Spring/Summer 2011 and drooling over all the ads for the brightly colored maxi skirt I decided I should give the maxi skirt a try. Knowing fully well that I can’t afford the Lanvin one I decided to hunt down the perfect maxi skirt available in my price range or somewhere close to it. To be honest I still feel I’m about 30cm too short to wear a maxi skirt confidently, but I’m brave enough to give it a try.  Here are a couple of skirts that I found and I think they do the job for POP of color, fit and budget. Here is the Lanvin skirt…

I Feel Fur-tastic Today!

I was never a big fan of fur or anything fur related BUT I love the look of a beautiful fur collared jacket on a woman with her hair nicely resting over the fur. It’s super hot. I came across this little gem on a bargain hunting mission to Anthropologie and I finally gave in and gave the fur a try. Beside the great price, I love how the fur is detachable, which means I have a versatile black cardigan! I probably wouldn’t wear the cardigan on its own but I like to have the option. Here is how I decided to wear my new cardigan to work, and show it off as an attachment to my jacket….The color of the fur worked perfectly with my brown leather jacket. I know, like before, it’s not the full look and it’s a quick Blackberry picture but you get the idea. I hope!Here’s a list of what I’m wearing… In this picture: Fur Collar: Laureate Lane Irina faux fur cardigan Jacket: Danier biker jacket Top: Banana Republic …

Love Them Earrings

I’m a BIG fan of earrings and necklaces; I think they just give a little extra detail to whatever look you’re trying to pull and they are oh so fun! Everyone should have an assorted collection of studs, hoops and chandelier earings for different occasions. If you’re just starting to build your collection, start by covering your basics first, the blinged up studs are a MUST HAVE! You can’t go wrong with them, can wear them to anywhere and with anything. After that you can experiment with different colors, shapes and sizes of studs. Same goes with other earring styles, get a classic simple style first, then build your way up to a more flashier or colorful piece. Remember, you don’t need to break the bank to get good pieces in your jewellery drawers. Stores like Forever 21, Topshop and H&M are a goldmine when it comes to little accessories like earrings; you can get up to 6 different styles of earrings in one pack and only spend anywhere between $5-15. Always keep your eyes …
