Fashion Forecast – STRIPES galore !

Everyone has kept telling us that big girls shouldn’t wear (horizontal) stripes …I know! we’ve been hearing that for ages, don’t we??
Well, well, well: forget that, at least for the season to come! I’m starting to see stripes on every fashion blog I visit …of course I see florals too, but that’s a print you always see during spring time. How about stripes?  they look like a big spring/summer hit!
The lovely girl above is GarnerStyle, of course: great fashion blogger, always looking for something new & original.  & what is she wearing? stripes!

I absolutely love a striped dress on the beach …& Stéphanie Zwicky agrees! I think she looks amazing in this dress, very rétro, incredibly classy. She also owns a striped coat, like the one up up above, that she wore in many occasions (like this one). Seriously, this is really a trend!

& then there’s her …my ever loved fashion guru…Big or Not to Big! wearing stripes, of course. Paired with the most lovely pastel pink skirt, ‘cause she’s cute; & some leopard, ‘cause she’s originally stylish. So adorable!

In conclusion, my dearest girls, make sure you wear stripes anytime you want this season!
you’re not only entitled to it, & have full permission from the style universe…you also have some amazing inspiration all around!


Fashion Forecast – PASTEL ‘til I drop !

It all started with a look. I saw the outfit above a while ago; I loved it, posted it on tumblr, & that was about it.
After a short while, I started noticing that this outfit was coming back & forth…I know it’s cute, but I keep seeing it! & I still love it! But then I thought – where would I ever find jeans in that colour? – & voilà … I did (as I already told you here).
You know what that means? If you’re planning some spring shopping … you gotta go pastel or go home!
The good thing about these range of colours is that it really adds light to your skin & eyes, softens your traits, lifts your mood up – & it does look like spring & summer, isn’t it?

 This is Gabifresh, & as you can see she picked mint & lavender …& naturally she looks adorable. Pastel colours make it a lot easier to put an outfit together: being the shades so nice already, you look special even wearing simple jeans & a plain top or shirt.

Luckily brands got that too …this adorable outfit is by ASOS, & they definitely understood next season’s trend.
But even more incredible, even some of the top brands fell under the pastel spell … like Ellie Saab for example (no surprise, with their usual ethereal & magic touch); Just Cavalli; Balmain; Chanel (oh! thank goodness! I love Chanel everyday more); & yes…Victoria’s Secret too.

So I can’t do anything more than cross my fingers & hope spring is gonna come as soon as possible.
In the meantime, we can always close our eyes & have pastel day dreams …
