Black Nail Polish?

Black Nail Polish
Black nail polish, we used to love them. But then everyone started to varnish their nails in black.
Nowadays it's not just about having black nails, it's a statement or an upgrade to our outfit.
My style is more Rock'n'Roll/Girly. I don't know exactly how to describe it, but I love black outfits with a pastel touch, I adore black nailpolish!
Now how do you combine black nailpolish without looking trashy?
1- Combine it with a blazer.
2- Chic and Rock'n'Roll match! So combine your satin or leather materials with black nails!
3- Add something fierce to your outfit (think about the galaxy legging or gold)
Here are a few outfits you guys might like to wear with your fresh painted black nails:

These leggings and the metallic in her sweater make this look edgy though fun and still classy. You can perfectly add black nailpolish with this outfit.
This look is great to go to school, or go to a fashion show, though I wouldn't wear it to go to work. This outfit might be better for that:

This look is great to go to work, also for a fashion show. The touch of leather gives this look and upgrade.

Dress Like Serena Van Der Woodsen

Since Gossip Girl is my favorite show ever, I will talk about Gossip Girl fashion once in a while.
There are many people who watch the show, and are of course madly in love with the characters' style, so today I'm going to talk about Serena Van Der Woodsen's style!
Her style on the show is said to be inspired by Kate Moss. Which means that she mixes fashion-forward and vintage pieces together for a "boho-chic" kind of look with a rocker-chick edge.
Serena is never afraid to wear something crazy if she's in love with it and she make it look effortlessly fabulous. She will never leave the house without putting her own touch on her outfit.
Of course, her style is also inspired by the Upper East Side, this means that there's always an element of classic chic in her outfit.
Most of the clothes she wears, cost hundreds of euros and made in luxurious fabrics.
If you want to dress like Serena, there are a couple of key pieces that you'll want to make sure you have in your wardrobe.
Well-cut Jackets:
Serena almost always wears a jacket! She might need it of course in the winter in Manhatten, but they're still one of her signature looks!
She has quite a collection of every type of jacket: long, short, cropped, leather, wool and just everything in between! She wears them in every color, too: bright colors (like red or gold), muted shades (like grey) and earth tones (like camel and brown).
If you want to wear a jacket like Serena does, the cut is everything! A jacket that fits you perfectly is a wardrobe goldmine! You can wear it with everything and it will upgrade your outfit! A way to make sure that your jacket fits perfectly, is to bring it to a tailor. It won't cost you much money to have seams taken in or let out, but it will pay off in the long run!
To find great jackets, you can check out Ebay, vintage stores (because many of Serena's jackets are vintage) or H&M (they're known for cute jackets, I own a couple of them), then call up a tailor so it fits you right!
Skinny jeans: Serena wore them in many episodes! Even though there will be many wider legs and boot-cuts in the racks again, Serena's denim of choice are still the skinny jeans! So if you have great legs like Blake Lively, show them off in a pair of skinny jeans before they go out of style!
On the show, Serena wears the brand Seven for All Mankind, but if you want to go cheaper, stores like Forever 21 and Wet Seal sell quality skinny jeans for just a fraction of the price.
Then Serena still that girly side to her, so we've also seen many dresses on her! She always wears the kind that have unexpected details to express her quirky style.
For example, take the gray t-shirt dress that Serena wore to Blairs birthday party (the one on the picture below on the right). The top half resembles a plain men's shirt, but when you look down at the hem, there are gold studs all around the bottom. Paired with sparkly black and gold tights, the look was casual yet funky at the same time!
To get this look, try to find dresses that have something unexpected about them, such as: studs, sequins, patterns or a pretty design. Serena usually wears mini dresses, so if you have the legs for it (like she does.. *sigh*), wear one with some black or sparkly tights and fabulous shoes!
Great places to find amazing dresses that don't cost you a fortune: H&M, Bluefly, Charlotte Russe and Forever 21.
Serena's look may be simple sometimes, she may just throw on a t-shirt and skinny jeans, but it's all about the details. She'll make the outfit fashion-forward and unique by just adding some accessories.
Some of her favorites are:
Boots: She just wears them all the time! She combines them with skinnies, tees, dresses, and even her school uniform.
Layered Necklaces: Serena has lots of necklaces, they are usually long, hitting above her belly button, and she layers them for a bohemian look. If you want to find unique, fabulous necklaces at low prices, Etsy may be a great website to search on, Ebay and H&M!
Bangles: She doesn't wear them all the time, but when she does, she uses them to add interest to her simpler outfits. You can find great inexpensive bangles at Charlotte Russe, Wet Seal, H&M.
Then of course, there's her hair. It's just always perfect! It's her signature look. Blake Lively wears extensions on the show to get her hair super long, so if yours isn't that long, try clip-in hair extensions to get the same look. If you already have long hair, it will be easier for you to get Serena's hairstyle!
To get waves like Serena's, work mousse trough damp hair and blow dry while scrunching to bring out your hair's natural wave. Next, take a curling iron and curl your hair in sections, starting with the bottom layers and working your way up your head. Don't worry about getting it perfect, because Serena's hair never is perfect, that's just it. And that's okay! Finish you hair with light hold hairspray, tousle and go! Try to add a cute head scarf like Serena on the photo below for extra credits!

Alexander Wang for Balenciaga, Bye bye Nicholas!

On November 30 Nicholas Ghesquière left Balenciaga. After weeks of speculation as to who would replace Nicolas Ghesquière as Creative Director at Balenciaga, Alexander Wang has been confirmed to take helm at the fashion house.
Wang, known for his edgy, sportswear, is expected to bring a commercial, approachable appeal to the brand, which, under Nicolas Ghesquière’s control, has always been more of an exclusive brand with a couture-like aesthetic.
Further plans of Nicholas Ghesquière are still unknown. He’s been head of Balenciaga for 15 years.
I wonder if we will see him back in the future in the world of fashion, or if he’ll be gone with the wind. Only time will tell.

Hello Sophia Webster


Welcome To The Dollhouse

Sophia Webster, a new face in the spotlight, but not in the industry of fashion!
Her first collection is the Spring-Summer collection of 2013 called "Welcome To The Dollhouse".
Sophia was originally an art student but then graduated at Cordwainers College (the same college where Jimmy Choo graduated) and then she worked as an assistant of Nicholas Kirkwood.
She became more famous in the fashion industry and now is ready to introduce her first collection.
She found her inspiration in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She was so inspired by the colours they use in Brazil and how colorful the houses are, that she used it in her collection.
Even at places where people live in extreme poverty, they are still happy and people make everything colorful and she wanted people to feel the courage and happiness through her collection.
The shoes are a mix of design and total choas. Her number one celebrity fan is Chloe Moretz and her collection will be sold by Saks, Colette, Net-A-Porter, Bergdorf and Neiman.
Welcome in the spotlight of our fashion industry, Sophia! This dollhouse will soon turn into a mansion.

The Most Iconic Handbag Ever!



This must be thmost iconic bag ever since Audrey Hepburn started to wear this Louis Vuitton piece of art almost everyday.
This bag comes in a few sizes:
25cm, 30 cm and 35cm.
I prefer the 30cm because it’s perfect to pack your daily essentials.
And when you don’t like the monogram canvas, there are also other prints available in every size!
Some people I know don’t like the fact that this bag has a million fake versions and to be honest, I wouldn’t like it either to walk around with a real designer bag, while others spend €50 on it and it looks almost exactly the same.
A real designer bag isn’t the same as a fake one, believe me. And you can personalize a real Louis Vuitton bag, for example with your initials. And it isn’t that expensive to buy a real one, the prices start +/- around €500. So it’s affordable if you really want one that lasts forever. Because the real ones ARE forever, if your Vuitton needs to be repaired, the brand has an excellent service other brands should be jealous of!
This was my first post, and I wanted it to be about the most iconic purse ever. And for me, it’s the Speedy. I love many other handbags, but this was the first one on my wishlist.
And of course I wanted to share this with you.
Start making that wishlist for Christmas and with a little luck, this might just be under your Christmas tree this year!
