Haute Donuts!

Posted on 29 maggio 2013

HAUTE Donuts!

Who doesn't like Donuts? :)
Here are some hot pieces whose colours are inspired by them!
The white dress is 'Carmen' by Hervé Legér, I'm so in love with its slim bandage dresses! This piece has a off shoulder neckline, short sleeves and a hot short pencil skirt. Perfect with a soft tanned skin!
Then heels, choosen in a shade which reminded me of my favourite donuts;) are by Casadei and Burak Uyan.
The pink pumps by Casadei are beautiful and simple platform heels while Uyan's sandals are ankle tie sandals in an irresistible turquoise shade! The 70's style makes them so original!
A chi non piacciono le ciambelle Donuts?
Vi posto alcuni pezzi hot della stagione i cui colori sono ispirati a quei dolci deliziosi!
Il vestito bianco è il modello "Carmen"di Hervé Léger , sono così innamorata dei suoi vestiti attillati - bandage. Questo capo ha uno scollo a barchetta, maniche corte ed una gonna a tubo attillatissia. Perfetto con una leggera abbronzatura!
poi i tacchi, scelti in base al colore delle mie ciambelle preferite ;) sono di Casadei i Burak Uyan.
I tacchi rosa di Casadei sono stupendi e semplici platform mentre quelli di Uyan sono sandali con allacciatura alla caviglia in un irresistibile turchese! Lo stile anni 70 poi, li rende originalissimi!

Uyan is a shoe designer you might haven't heard of yet, but I'll write a post about him soon, just take a glimpse at this piece of his Fall 2013 Collection ;)

Uyan è uno stilist di scarpe di cui forse non avete (ancora) sentito parlare, ma scriverò un post su di lui presto, per ora date un'occhiata ad un pezzo della sua collezione per l'autunno 2013 ;)

Finally, I love pastel blue nail polishes especially those in the set by China Glaze, M.A.C. , Zoya and Essie.
The cheap but trendy suggestion?
The filigree - chandelier earrings by Lori's!

Per finire, amo le tinte blu pastello degli smalti, specialmente quelle nel set di China Glaze, M.A.C., Zoya ed Essie.
Il consiglioo cheap ma trendy?
Gli orecchini filigrana di Lori's!

Bianca Balti Style

Italian model Bianca Balti looked amazing at the latest Cannes Film Festival
She wore amazing dresses, a long black lace by Alberta Ferretti (above), a bright pink one by Chanel and an amazing long by Dolce & Gabbana.
We like her because she doesn't take herself too seriously, she's nice and extreamely classy on the Red Carpet :)

La modella italiana Bianca Balti è apparsa splendida all'ultimo Festival di Cannes!
Ha indossato abiti supendi; un lungo in pizzo nero di Alberta Ferretti (nel set sopra), uno rosa acceso di Chanel e un lungo strepitoso di Dolce & Gabbana.
Ci piace perchè no si prende troppo sul serio, è simpatica ed estremamente elegante sul tappeto rosso :)

I post some of the best shoots of the editorial she did for Grey Magazine!
Bianca and her daughter Matilde Lucidi wear the same dresses and do the vacuuming together.
What to say? Like her or not, she's definetely not a conventional model ;) 

Vi posto alcuni dei migliori scatti per l'editoriale in cui ha posato per Grey Magazine!
Bianca e la figlia indossano gli stessi vestiti e fanno le casalinghe insieme.
Che dire? Che piaccia o no, rimane una modella non convenzionale :)

Maxi Dresses!

Style Your Favorite Maxi Dress 

Style Your Favorite Maxi Dress by fra3 featuring a sleeveless maxi dress

Do you like maxi dresses? I do ;)
They're not easy to wear and not so comfortable but some pieces are stunning!
Today I've created a total look by Givenchy: the bag , a medium "Nightingale" and the dress comes with the same geometrical pattern.
This is one of the best models among maxi dresses, it's like a long tank and as it's made of viscose and silk it's pretty comfortable on the skin too ;)
With these item you must wear high heels, if you don't feel confident with pumps choose wedges ;) These one in black and brown are very easy to match with denim, lace blouses and patterns.
On the nails you can opt out for a bit of bronze or golden which enhance the first tan :)
Now, some other not-too-expensive ideas ;)

Tangerine Orange Make Up!

Posted on 23 maggio 2013

June Beauty Horoscope

From orange lips to sassy eye shadow, the tangerine trend is making its way into beauty stores left and right.
Although many women are hesitant to swipe on bright orange lipstick, there are many easy ways to wear the trend, here are 10 important tips from Jeffrey English:

1. The boldest way to wear Tangerine is on the lips
Make a bold style statement this spring with a super-saturated lipstick. To create the perfect bold lip, use a lip liner in a matching color like the Clinique Chubby and color the entire lips, this will create a deep saturation and profusion of color. 

2. For those who are a bit intimidated by color, it's better to start with a hydrating gloss with a sheer wash of color and sparkly finish so that you can still make a statement.

3. Achieve that perfect spring flush with perfectly blushed cheeks. The trick with wearing tangerine-colored blush is to make sure that you achieve a multidimensional effect that really shows off the contours of your face. 

4. Update your traditional smokey eye by integrating some color into this fan favorite look!
Create a harmonious tangerine smoky eye using nude, orange, plum and black glitter shades. 

5. One of the easiest ways to introduce tangerine into your beauty look is through a bold orange liner. Line your upper lash line with this bold shade to open up the eyes. For a more dramatic look, extend the line to the outer corners of your eyes to create a winged-look.

6. Bold nails are one of the hottest trends in the beauty world right now. 
Essie's orange is probably one of the best enamels in the world of nail polishes!

7. Another way to integrate tangerine into your beauty look is through hair accessories. Whether it's through hair pins, headbands or a feather hair clip, it just goes to show you that the color options are endless.

8. Whenever wearing bold colors on your face, it is always important to focus the color on one part of the face – pick eyes, lips, or cheeks – so that you don't overdo it. Keep the rest of the face flawless with a smooth, even canvas.

9. For the beauty novice who is truly just beginning to experiment with color, take baby-steps and add some of pop of color into your life through beauty accessories! Whether it's a simple tool like an eyelash curler or even a brush set, you'll be sure to be on trend.

10. One of the most important things to remember is that color can truly affect your mood, perspective and style. Tangerine exudes passion, enthusiasm and confidence and can liven up any look. Try adding a dash of tangerine to take your routine from dull to daring and get excited about the color of the year!

Celebrity Street Style: Rihanna!

Posted on 22 maggio 2013

Get the Look: Celebrity Street Style

Today let's talk about Streetstyle!
On the left is one of Rihanna's recent outfits and on the right quite a perfect reconstruction ;)
This time it's been rather easy to find out the exact pieces Riri was wearing!
The Butterfly dress she's wearing like a shirt is by Mari Katrantzou, a very hot Greek designer and her statement heels are by Tom Ford.
The nude version is a little less vulgar but they're very, very, very difficult to fit any outfit! ;)
However, these open toe sandals present sexy buckled straps wrap and their over-the-knee lenght make of them a stunning accessory!
(Gladiator heels are top for this Summer!)
I didn't manage to find out the shorts' brand by I found a very similar one at Farfetch.
On the lips? Plum lipstick like the one in the set by MAC Cosmetics for an ultra chic allure!


Tie Dye Nails!

My Favorite Beauty DIY

My Favorite Beauty DIY by fra3 

I've already explained how to create an ombre-degradé manicure and this time I'm dedicating this post o a similar effect, "Tie Dye"!

 It was the pattern beloved by hippies in the 70s and now it has become very popular!
The skill is very close to the one of the marble art but you don't need water or glasses just a toothpick ;)
You'll have to draw the typical Tie Dye pattern on the nail polish already applied on the nail, to do this apply first the golden shade, than the medium blue and then the darkest blue as in the set above; you must be quite fast (don't let the laquer dry!) and in the point where 2 different shades touch go zigzag with you toothpick in order to blend them just a bit.
It's easier to do than to explain! You only need to try! :)

If you prefer something easier to use and with a garanteed result, YSL has created
 four "Tie Dye" top coats!

YSL La Laque Couture Tie & Die Top Coat Collection

YSL's La Laque Couture Tie & Dye Top Coat Collection is the first-ever nail polish that comes with three tones in one bottle! The collection of four new nail polishes features a fun twist, each polish is composed of 3 separate layers, for 3 different finishes in one application!The sparkle, solid and clear gloss finishes sit in three layers in the bottle; you can either slide out the brush smoothly for a dip-dyed gradient effect, or you can shake up the mixture to create another look. For now the limited edition collection comes in just four colors : Cool (watermelon), Pop (pink), Hip (lilac) and Ice (blue).It's already a must and it's sold out at the official Ysl Make Up website ;)
