Sad loss of such a unique talent that in many ways transcended music, fashion, and culture May you finally rest in peace.

Summer rocks!

19 Jul

Ever felt douchy wearing a flower dress in July? A tick in the box for me, the first of many…

Sincerely, I deeply admire weather chameleons. As long as I am concerned, when it’s summer (in the calendar) but actually feels like “rainy sunday” every day of the week, my fashion instinct just loses it.

I can’t help it, thick waterproof fabrics, anti-slip boots and scratchy sweaters are unthinkable parts of my summer plans!

Result : I end up wearing a dozen of layers (pretty much half of my summer closet) in a dubious combination of colors and shapes, hoping the sun will come out any minute and let me breathe!!

And, let’s face it, a guy called Murphy will probably make it happen the day I will undo my winter boxes and let wool and velvet back in my drawers.

In the meantime, to see the bright side of the neverending rain and drop in temperature, at least we skip feeling guilty for the pre-summer diet we totally screwed up (again), we don’t get pervy looks and talks everytime we step out, and we might even avoid the typical summer flings that are usually the consequences of fair-weather euphoria, alcohol in the sun and not wearing much clothes from the beginning – leading us to anything but good surprise and raise of self-esteem.

So thumbs up! to the fashonistas who adjust to any possible circumstances and situations and for the rest (incl. me) let it rain and flood our fashion identity.

Anyway what happens in the summer, stays…

Cover Girl: Kate Moss For Vogue UK August Issue

12 Jul

Supermodel Kate Moss graces the covers the August issue of Vogue UK photographed by Mario Testino (the same who photographed her wedding).

Wearing a peach sequin and embroidered dress by Miu Miu, Moss looks every inch her supermodel self in her very Forties-esque shoot with a soft curled up ‘do and ruby red lips. Inside the mag she dons vintage-inspired pieces from Moschino, Louis Vuitton and Gucci.

On the cover, I like the contrast between her pale skin, and the strong red lip color which balances the lower intensity of her outfit and the title font… Enjoy!
