Kiss Kiss

Hello readers,

Last year we were able to see all kind of iconic prints such as symbols and figures. One example and definitley one of my favorite symbols was Kenzo’s eye, someway I think it conveys a sense of inner peace and balance. But this time I can’t take my eyes off the Lips. The first time I saw DVF’s iconic lips clutch I felt in love with it and it’s sense of inner beauty and confidence. So, today I bring to you another way to wear this trend… In a super cute and shiny sweater.

What do you like most, the eye or lips trend?

To the things that are yet to come…

2013 has come to an end and I couldn’t be more thankful for the amazing year. Although you were able to see and read (here in the blog) about several spring and fall trends for 2013, there were just few of them that really made a statement. 2013 was the year for crop tops, grunge and prints. From the checkerboard’s spring trend (like Louis Vuitton’s popular checkerboard dresses) to the eye’s  fall trend (like Kenzo’s ocular print) I could say  that prints and symbols were kind of  huge during 2013.

But what to expect for 2014? I could say that we’ll be seeing much of last year’s trends… crop tops, sport luxe, over-sized cuts, prints, leather, fur and we can’t forget pantone’s color of the year… Radiant Orchid.

What do you think will be this year’s top trend? My guesses are that the sports luxe (over-sized and boxed cuts) as well as the crop tops will make every fashionista want to workout and be in shape to be able to wear 2014’s hottest trends.

Raising the Bar

Hello readers,

I’m happy to announce that this December I’m not just concluding a wonderful year but I’m also concluding my college degree, and I couldn’t be more happier. Knowing that college has ended is kind of weird, I can’t really explain this feeling, it’s a combination of self-realization and excitement. I guess that what I’ve learned from these past years is that at the end it all comes back to YOU. What you’ve done, achieved, failed, had more trouble in. And it’s until then when you understand that the competition wasn’t  between you and your colleagues but with yourself. Couple of days ago I read this quote that said “I am in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone. I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday.”  So this year I’m not only concluding an important chapter in my life but I’m also Raising the Bar for the years to come.

To know others is wisdom, to know one’s self is enlightenment.
