So black and white are a classic color combination. But who knew we would spot so much of the combo on the runway for the Fall/Winter 2019? While there has definitely been a good bit of color injected into the season, we’ve seen almost entire collections like Jeremy Scott feature the classic color combination. Longchamp, Area and more featured the color combo. See more below!
So how is your New Year going so far? Maybe you are trying to get a new job or start a business. Anyway, we all need that suit to dress to impress. I found this blue suit from Zara last year. It was chic and affordable, and to my knowledge didn’t rip off any specific designers. Yea I buy from Zara sometimes but you have to be careful with them. We all know fast fashion has a dark side and if you buy from them, you just need to be mindful of the lower cost production and designer knockoffs.
Headed out for Valentine’s Day? Grab this cute, sexy $168 Dress the Population dress from Nordstrom for your big night. It’s really affordable, red and it will probably make your boobs look good. Hey, that’s important right? 🙂
So sometimes you just want to sketch on cardboard. Flowers are so beautiful. I was motivated to sketch some on something that could be easily thrown away. It’s like wearing grungy sneakers with a lace skirt…a lovely contradiction of sorts that actually works.
So if you haven’t heard already, Farfetch is having a ridiculous sale. Over 3000 items are up to 70% off, AND they’re throwing in an additional 20% off with the code x20ff. Yea, I know. Sounds too good to be true right? Well, there are actually some amazing finds! I didn’t comb through all 3000 items but I definitely made my way through a lot of them and found some cute things for myself.
Some of these dresses can work this winter with some tights and even an undershirt. But some of them will be absolutely perfect for the spring!
Okay so up north it definitely gets old wearing the same coat everyday. Especially that good old black or grey that everybody wears. Hey I love black and grey but there is no better way to spice up a cold winter day than with a bright-colored coat. Delpozo has a beautiful yellow and beige cape coat 40% off. Hurry though because there is only one left.
There’s plenty of skirts on sale but I have to say this black and white Balmain mini skirtwill definitely get worn. You can go to lunch with that…even to work if you do it right.
So mind you this Bao Bao Issey Miyake bag is on sale and I hardly ever see any of their merchandise on sale. And kid you not, Ashish, Proenza Schouler and Rebecca Minkoff. High to low… yess!
There’s a lot of boots on sale. Now might be the time to try that sexy high-knee boot or even these Versace velvet boots.
If you’re looking for more picks, feel free to visit the fashion shop. Have fun and please do share your finds in the comments below!
Paris Spring/Summer 2019 Couture Week is the stuff of creative dreams. I mean, perhaps couture does not sell as well as ready-to-wear but I hope couture never goes anywhere. And for those of you that scoff and say who would wear that?? Well, try going outside of your comfort zone sometimes and re-envisioning what you wear. It is 2019 after all.
Alexandre Vauthier’s PCW SS 19 runway show was absolutely amazing! From the bows to the animal print, I was just so inspired. Bows are actually a big thing on the runway this week. From Christian Dior to Giambattista Valli and more, bows have been all over the runway. I’m here for the feminine addition. Anyway, check out more photos from the show below!
So I definitely gained some weight over the holidays and am trying to get it off now (like everybody else). So I decided to have a very vegetable-forwarddiet for a while. Notice I said vegetable-forward, not vegetarian. 🙂 Yea, I don’t think I could go all the way vegetarian or vegan but I have made vegetable dishes as the main dish for a few weeks. Have to share a recipe that I absolutely adore! You have to be a mushroom and spinach fan though. I find the more vegetables you eat, the more of a taste for them that you will have.
It’s actually from this great food site called saltandlavender.com which unfortunately is not a vegetarian recipe site but pretty good nonetheless. I had to actually go to an Italian market to grab the potato gnocchi but other than that, the ingredients are pretty easy to find. Check out the recipe below and definitely let me know if you make it!
Creamy Mushroom and Spinach Gnocchi
Creamy and delicious vegetarian mushroom and spinach gnocchi with a creamy parmesan and white wine sauce.
Add the olive oil to a skillet on medium high heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. It’s ok if it becomes lightly browned.
Add the mushrooms, garlic, and Italian seasoning. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for another 5 minutes.
Stir in the Dijon mustard and white wine. Let it bubble for a minute or so.
Add the cream and gnocchi. Wait until it starts to bubble again, then cover the pan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for 3 minutes.
Stir in the spinach, cover the pan again, and cook for 3 minutes.
Stir in the parmesan and season with salt & pepper. Give it a taste; gnocchi should be soft. If not, continue to cook for another few minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley. Serve immediately with more parmesan cheese grated over top if desired.
This makes 4 reasonably sized portions. If you’re feeding extra hungry people, I recommend serving this with a salad, garlic bread, and/or something else.
So I hope your New Year is off to a great start! A designer that I had never heard of, Natasha Zinko, out of the United Kingdom makes some really cool, funky women’s wear that will have you turning heads. I found her through Farfetch and ordered this plaid corset top which is actually 50% off right now. She has another corset top that features a camouflage print available too. If it’s cold where you are, you can actually layer the corset with a white t-shirt as shown on Farfetch. I wore the corset with my Rag & Bone jeans(similar here) as well as pink vintage Christian Louboutin booties.
