Statement necklace








Nothing can dress as much as a statement necklace. One piece and the outfit is done..I'm bragging about this necklace from Happiness Boutique since the very first moment it got in my hands. I love the festival vibe of it and how it can still be  perfect both for dressing up or dressing down. No secret I've been wearing it A LOT lately aaand great news for you :D Just use the code

BELVEDERE PALACE



Belvedere Palace, Vienna, August 2016. Warm but not hot, sunny but not dazzling, airy but not windy. A perfect combination of all the aspects you would avoid about weather. WHAT TO WEAAAR? Of course I was on holiday so my choice was pretty restricted and I didn't plan on wearing this outfit in the first place but I actually like how it came out. Roses on my blouse garden in the background, matchy-matchy :)

POM POM





Volumes. It is said to never put together baggy ups with baggy downs or tight ups with tight downs but always mix them. I honestly stick to this rule on a daily basis.. but here.. it just felt right. And of course if it feels right no rule can make sense anymore. I got this shirt (which is actually a romper but it's too short to be used as anything but a shirt) a while ago and even if I wore it a few times I just was never sure about the styling.. When I finally got this combination by chance it became my favourite outfit straight away.
The colour scheme is quite basic.. light turquoise shirt, light wash denim jeans.. no big drama. And since I just can't go for it without that extra pop .. let's introduce my beloved (not so summery but who cares) pompoms from Eat Da Rich. They're so fluffy, soft and sooo well made that I'm obsessed. My first intention was to stop there.. but you know.. I had that pompon keychain and my Louis was begging for it AHAHAH.

FAV LIQUID LIPSTICKS RIGHT NOW


Summer is behind the corner and we're all hitching to get our hands on those lipsticks sitting in the back of the closet.. bye bye deep purples and scarlet reds ..hello pinks and oranges! I've actually got many favourites for this season and these are just a little (but the best) part of my selection.. I actually am more a "matte lipsticks person" and I usually tend to avoid shimmery finish lipsticks or glossy stains but these are my successful experiments in the coloumn of  "let's give it a try".
 





SEPHORA-SHINY HONEY PURPLE  ($29)

I couldn't find a link for it on the actual Sephora website..It must be cause I got it quite a while ago but you can still find it online here and there..not to mention all the beautiful colours in stock right now on Sephora. By the way this colour may look wintery but it only gives that shiny finish since it's not very pigmented..and it's not particularly sticky to be a lipgloss..love it!  









LIME CRIME- CAROUSEL GLOSS CANDY APPLE ($29)       

It seems that with the launch of limecrime's new collection it is out of stock ANYWHERE.. I managed to find it on ebay..hoping it's just a temporary sold out situation. Anyway I do really like the carousel theme of this collection..It is probably the stickiest lipgloss I've ever tried but the glass effect on the lips..it's worth it! And is sooo long lasting to be a lipgloss.. after hours when the glitters are gone be sure you'll have a perfect red stain on.















 KIKO DOUBLE TOUCH TWO  ($12)                                         
 Put it on at 8AM live your day and be sure that at night time you'll still have it on like if you had just applied it. I forget to have it on most of the time and I probably got all the colours in stock.. For the day I usually go for the base one only and in the evening I add the gloss for that extra touch .. forget about stickiness or dry lips..  highly highly recommended!






YSL VERNIS A LEVRES GLOSSY STAIN-ROUGE PUR COUTURE ($36)      
You can't go wrong with this. From the smell of "classic high class lipstick" to the texture of a shiny lipgloss without it's stickiness and lasting problems..It's just that perfect red lipstick that every woman should carry in her handbag..100% thumbs up.                        






                                          

 H&M LUSH LIP VINYL ($10)

On the website they don't sell this colour but it should be in every h&m  store in the world.. not so hard to find. I've been looking for the perfect dark orange for ages.. I had to explain my ideal browny orange in every shop for the past 5/6 months and still now I'm not sure I found it.. this is something very similar of what I was looking for.. even if from the swatches it looks more like a reddish colour.. Sticky as hell.. actual vinyl effect tho.

A throwback among H&M collaborations

Have you heard the big news? This season's H&M  will collaborate with..KENZO. Yayyy!The capsule collection will be released in november.. like every year.. and I can't wait!
I've been following H&M's collaboration since 2008.. I actually didn't like the past couple of collaboration to be honest.. not really for the pieces themselves which were just as beautiful as the standards of Balmain and Alexander Wang (just to name some) but cause It became a status thing.. hours queuing.. boutique prices.. people arguing over a belt.. As a fashion student you can easily understand how much this world means to me.. but really.. when it's too much it's too much.. fashion shouldn't be used to show money.. it should be used to show personality.. aaand back at the main topic..I'm just so excited about Kenzo this year.. I do really hope that it's usual radiant colours and vibrant patterns will bring more fun than just the idea of "grabbing a random piece cause it's Kenzo" if you know what I mean. So in preparation of the big launch.. that will actually be in 5 months..I thought to do a little throwback posting some bits of the past collaborations that I enjoyed the most! At first I wanted to post a pic for each collaboration but they actually are too many.. so here's some of my favs!
