Mulberry 2016 New Bayswater

Writer:fashion Date:2016-5-18 15:17 Wednesday Categories:Fashion

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Which is generally the case for most situations. But if, and only if you can do something much better, some change is better than no change, right?

Which brings us to Mulberry’s New Bayswater that has been given a quick makeover of sorts by current Creative Director Johnny Coca. And though I haven’t seen one in person as yet, this is what is known about it. For starters, it’s apparently more structured now, with ‘ears’ on both sides ala Céline’s Luggage (no surprises since his last job was designing bags and accessories for the French luxury house).

It’s apparently more lightweight, with more compartments built into its body that would even allow one to slot an entire laptop into the larger New Bayswater that measures 45 cm across at its widest. You could also say it’s cleaner and more streamlined than its predecessor that was first launched back in 2003.


Currently available in 2 sizes, there’s the Regular (45 cm by 28 cm, shown above) and a much tinier Small (33 cm by 21 cm) which also happens to come with an additional shoulder sling as well. Priced from GBP795 and up, it seems (and very cleverly so) that while the bigger style comes in more classic colours (think Black, Oak and Oxblood), the Small New Bayswater will be made available in fun hues like Canary, Candy andDune.

The Rules of Style by Jaden and Willow Smith

Writer:fashion Date:2016-5-18 15:11 Wednesday Categories:Fashion


To say that someone’s not from this planet means that they are weird and far from normal. “I am not like you, I am a martian,” raps Lil’ Wayne in “Phone Home.” But who wants to be normal, anyway? I just watched a Tedx talk given by a woman named Debra Jenkins who said that normal is “a dryer setting.”

Besides, all the best people are extraterrestrials.

The late David Bowie used to sing of life on Mars. The Beatles had to be more than human to write “Across the Universe.” Carol’s titular character describes the woman she loves as “flung from outer space,” and if you Google-search Jaden and Willow Smith, you’ll find multiple hypotheses that they operate on higher planes of existence — or that they’re aliens.

When it comes to the latter two, who’s to say. I’ve never seen their DNA. But I can tell you one thing: their style is out of this world.

I DID IT. I said it.

I had to. It was the only way to segue into their collective rules of style, which are as follows:

1) Think of wearing all-black not as a monochromatic cop-out but rather like you’re wearing the color of the galaxy.

2) Ban sibling rivalry and band together in the name of coordination instead.

3) Dress like Karl Lagerfeld if Karl Lagerfeld were to take up bob sledding. (That is: do do maximum-appendage bodysuits zipped up to your neck with ankle boots. Possibly leave out the fingerless gloves depending on your texting ability in their full-fingered iterations.)

4) Wear Orion’s literal belt, per the above

5) Come to your own conclusions about whether or not the black 90s necklace is “over,” but do carry on embracing the choker.

6) Either bend sartorial gender rules or break them until they snap in half, because for the millionth time: skirtswere made for everyone and anyone who wants to feel the breeze.

7) Clash prints, patterns and colors so hard together that they explode like best-dressed confetti. 

8) Consider Wednesday Addams your collar-based style icon.

9) On days when the top half of getting dressed is hard, let your tall boots say everything.

10) Add a gold lamé trouser cape if your brown pants don’t feel formal enough.

11) To pair together immediately: gray turtleneck, gray suit jacket, gray pants, sparkle socks.

12) Let your tee shirt tell its story and free your sweatshirt to rep the Matrix.

13) Remember your manners no matter how famous you are, and when your friend sneezes, say, “God bless you.”

14) Bomber jackets over everything. Except Family.

15) To consider more deeply: a septum nose ring.

16) Stripes. Always, always do stripes.

17) Think of camouflage as a wardrobe staple, a more interesting neutral.

18) Collect charms and string them from beads then remember for your jewelry: your neck is but a vehicle.

19) It also helps keep your head on straight, whatever that means.

20) Try the thing you think looks cool on others but doubt you could pull off. You can pull it off.

21) And remember: it doesn’t matter where you come from or what you are. You’re still part of that universal language called style.

Looks for Memorial Day

Writer:fashion Date:2016-5-18 15:08 Wednesday Categories:Fashion

It’s time to prep for Memorial Day weekend, fashionistas! This upcoming longer vacation weekend has been on my mind for a long time, and I CANNOT wait to prep for the festivities (which I don’t have planned yet, oops! :))

There are many things to do in the DC area during this mini break, so I’ve put together 3 outfits that I might consider wearing, depending on what I wind up doing.

Go Casual

1) Casual for a Day in DC

During the holiday weekend, I might head down to the DC museums and art galleries for a whole day of walking and exploring. You should be comfortable for this type of exclusion, so it’s important to wear things that are practical yet still stylish.

For me I’d wear a pair of high waisted comfy jeans, a basic yet stylish top like a striped tee, and a pair of stylish Nike kicks, which will enable me to walk for miles and miles.

In terms of a purse, I’d bring a tote hands down. This oversized bag will allow me to carry all my belongings, while still maintaining a small dash of flair.

A Flirty Stroll

2) A Flirty Stroll

For this excursion, I’d still be walking around DC, but for a long time, for example a restaurant or cafe.

Because it might be warmer outside, I’d wear a light top, whether it’s a crop tank or a tee. With either of those, a fun colored skirt will add even more brightness to a sunny day. Spring is all about adding more color to your wardrobe, and for any look, a smashing skirt might be the perfect venue to do so.

Since sneakers might not look the greatest with a skirt and top, some flat glam sandals will still be practical,  and pain-free, yet still perfect.

Barbecue or Picnic

3) A Barbecue or Picnic

After a day full of fun-in-the-sun activities, a nice picnic or barbecue will be the bow on top of an excellent day.

Since you’re not going out to the clubs, a fun colorful printed look will would be great for this type of occasion.

I’d wear a cute floral or gingham dress to either a picnic or barbecue, however, I’d rock shorts or bloomers underneath, in case any badminton or other fun games come into the mix.

As for accessories and footwear, I’d further play up the spring-to-summer vibe with open-toed shoes, a floral colorful pink or jewelry jewelry.

15 Best Eyebrow Fillers for the Perfect Brow Makeup

Writer:fashion Date:2016-5-17 13:50 Tuesday Categories:Fashion

When all eyes in the beauty arena are on those signature, all-powerful eyebrows, nolens volens we frantically start looking for the best eyebrow fillers from the leading names. So, we are here to grease the wheels and provide you with a list of 15 best eyebrow fillers that are sure to be of good service to you whether you are all taken away by “eyebrows on fleek” or rather sticking to au naturel unkempt arches or maybe going several decades back to embrace those skinny brows. But before that take several minutes to go through the main categories and types of eyebrow products and the diverse effects each of them is able to bring unto your arches.

Best Eyebrow Fillers for the Perfect Brow Makeup

Brow Pencils: If inborn thin eyebrows have always been your vulnerable point or you just need to see your over-plucked sparse eyebrows morphed into full arches in a flash, one of the best eyebrow fillers in this case comes to be the brow pencil that will help you acquire more power, volume and super-groomed fix above the eyes. Even if your eyebrow pencil is blendable enough, always have a spoolie brush at your disposal to work out more natural appeal and to avoid any smudges or smears.

Brow Pens and Fine Pencils: These amazing eyebrow products are just perfect to fill your arches in far the most natural way and it is owing to their ultra-skinny fine tips. Without any hard pressing you will be able to sketch tiny eyebrow-hair-mimicking strokes on your sparse spots; only you need to have more time at your disposal to handle this miniature work. And to avoid an overly penciled-in brow, the brow expert Damone Roberts recommends that it is better to use these eyebrow products to “kiss the hair.”

Brow Powder: If the agenda is to define eyebrows yet keeping them in softer and more velvety feeling, brow powder comes as the best-working filler in here. The powder blends more effortlessly with spoolie brush and requires no more than several minutes of standing before the mirror. Brow experts recommend using two-color brow powder kits to use the lighter shade on the inner corners of the brows while the darker one on the tails for more definition.

Brow Gel and Mascara: These two eyebrow products rather work to tame unruly hairs keeping them in symmetrical harmony than to shape and fill your arches. However, if you use tinted versions, they would also give your brows a hint of color and subtle definition.

Brow Pomade: Brow pomade as a cream-based eyebrow filler is harder to use, that’s why it is recommended to reach out to pomade after you have acquired enough skills in filling in eyebrows using brow pencils and powder application techniques. This type of eyebrow filler provides more saturated color payoff and through its creamy texture gives brows some luxurious shimmer.

Brow Highlighter: This eyebrow product is to finish off your groomed arches. Just a swipe on your under-brow area and it will result in a perfectly brightened-up complexion. This trick is also potent to soften your eyebrows on fleek, making them look more natural.

And now flip through our list of 15 best eyebrow products without one iota of doubt that there is no better way of playing hardball than when you wear all-powerful, groomed eyebrows.

The Duchess of Cambridge is your Monday workwear inspiration in Goat and Banana Republic

Writer:fashion Date:2016-5-17 13:44 Tuesday Categories:Fashion

The Duchess of Cambridge

When it comes to dressing for the office in the summer, it can be tricky to find the balance between looking appropriately chic and but also keeping cool. This morning, the Duchess of Cambridge showed us a winning workwear combination which will take you from meetings in the chilly air conditioning  to the sticky commute home in style.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry were out this morning launching their Heads Together campaign, which aims to break the stigma surrounding mental health, at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in East London.

The Duchess proves that when it comes to summer workwear you can't go wrong with a crisp white blouse and a boldly printed skirt. The Duchess's slim-fit cream blouse with full sleeves and an elegant round neck is by British label Goat and is available online for £290. An elegant ivory shirt is a simple way of achieving a pulled-together look in the heat. If the famous 'Kate Effect' is anything to go by, the Duchess's blouse is likely to have sold out by the time you read this, but never fear- we've already created a guide to the best white shirts which will help you to achieve the look. 

 The Duchess paired her blouse with a navy,  teal and white geometric print a-line skirt by Gap's big sister label, Banana Republic. Although this style is no longer available on Banana Republic's own website, it is currently available to buy at Zalando for £105.

According to our calculations, this is the first time that the Duchess has worn the American high street label famed for its workwear classics. The brand has however already benefited from the retail magic which Kate's endorsement brings; in a savvy marketing move in 2013, Banana Republic reissued the sold-out Issa wrap dress which she wore in her official engagement photographs in 2010, as part of a collaboration with the London-based brand founded by Daniella Helayel.

Banana Republic might be a new high street find for the Duchess of Cambridge, but she is already a fan of British label Goat, which specialises in luxury cashmere. The Duchess of Cambridge has previously worn several shift dresses and cashmere coats from the label, which was founded by Jane Lewis in 2001 and is known for its classic tailoring and luxury staples. She particularly favoured Lewis's designs as alternatives to traditional maternity wear, choosing a cream 'Redgrave' style while she was expecting Prince George and chic 60s-inspired black coat with cream trim on a visit to New York shortly after her pregnancy with Princess Charlotte was announced. 

The Duchess of Cambridge is praised for mixing affordable high street pieces with high end designer labels, and just last night she mastered this high-low style perfectly at the Queen's 90th birthday gala where she wore a £3,450 white lace Dolce & Gabbana dress with a £49.99 red jacket from Zara.

Almost every designer bag has two types of design – there is the ‘ordinary’ bag and there is the ‘extra ordinary’ bag. One is beautiful, and the second one is beyond beautiful. And thus at Givenchy, you have the normal leather Pandora Box Bag and the Ayers Snakeskin leather Pandora Box Bag, which one do you prefer?

Meet the Givenchy Minaudiere Chain Ayers Pandora Box.

Created as an addition to the famous luxurious Pandora Collection, this is another handbag that makes every girl skip a beat.

The Givenchy Minaudiere Chain Pandora Box can be compared to the WOC (Wallet On Chain Bag) or just a mini bag. It’s ideal for the evenings or the special occasions. It’s the kind-of bag that can easily transform from a shoulder wear to a clutch bag.

You will love it.

Crafted with Metallic Ayers Snakeskin – it shines throughout the night and it matches to any outfit. Wear your favorite dress and a pair of high heels or just jeans and shirt; the bag will adjust to your style.

The bag opens with a push-lock closure, the interior features a card pocket.

Now there are two different kinds of colors – black and pale gold. The pale gold is somewhat a bit more attractive as you can see more of the leather details.

Measuring 5.5’ x 5’ x 3’ (W x H x D) inches, priced at $2390 USD via Elyse Walker.
