Marsala


10360343_10152902367567629_8031722022875072806_nEverybody has been talking about it, and I am jumping on the bandwagon just because I love it. Marsala is the color of 2015 and one of my faves overall. It was funny because Maquilab has posted all the colors that Pantone announced trendy, and immediately I gravitated towards Marsala, and only after that I found out it is the color of 2015. It is so rich, beautiful, complex and versatile. It can be used for clothes and accessories, make up or home-decor.

Всички говорят за цвета на годината и реших, че и аз ще се присъединя към тенденцията, просто защото този цвят ми е много любим. Марсала или богатото, наситено тъмно червено, с нюанси на кафяво и лилаво ми е фаворит заради това, че е много подходящ както за дрехи и грим, така и за аксесоари и домашни нещица. Беше забавно, защото Maquilab сподели цветовете, обявени от Pantone за най-тренди през 2015 и аз веднага си харесах Марсала най-много, без изобщо да знам, че е обявен за цвета на годината. Цветът е перфектен за дрехи, бижута, аксесоари и домашни красоти.

3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Amazingness!


I am so very excited about this collection. Although there is a lot of buzz about all the high-end designed collaborations with humanly affordable retailers for all being a flop, I am all for it. It is high fashion and quality for affordable price, making labels and the cover of the magazines more than dreams and reasons to salivate.  The 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collaboration looks great. It is chic and cool, playful and edgy and at the same time feminine and stylish.

The designer describes it the best: “One of the reasons I wanted to collaborate with Target is because I felt that together we could create a collection that would inspire – one that is cool and chic, but still very accessible”

All we have to wait is for the date 15 September. I have already talked with a couple of people who will be in line for me in the US on that day. Can’t miss it! 🙂

Maison Martin Margiela for H&M


November 15th is less than a month away and the whole internet is buzzing with the MMM collection for H&M. And everybody has a full right to be more than talking, commenting and salivating, because the preview pictures promise a great treat to all the fashion lovers. The collection is intended to be recreation of some of the greatest looks by Maison Martin Margiela, and indeed it will have a collectioner’s value.

The silhouettes are so different and avant-garde, in the typical MMM style. Dying for the coats and the dresses!

15 Ноември наближава и целия интернет е нажежен с информация за колекцията на Maison Martin Margiela за H&M. Все пак всички имат право да говорят, защото тази колекция защото прес снимките обещават невероятно модно преживяване. Колекцията беше обявена преди време с новината, че всички модели ще бъдат вдъхновени от отминали класически модели на МММ. Определено има колекционерска стойност!

Силуетите са толкова нестандартни и уникални, че колекцията няма как да сбърка автора си. Определено роклите и палтата са ми фаворити!

Two H&M Collaborations That Get Me Excited!

H&M is Here! And It is just Fabulous!


I am so excited as I just came home from the event of the season! H&M’s new showroom opening was this evening and I was more than fortunate to be among the few selected guests at the fab event. I shared yesterday my excitement about the announcement of the opening date – 10th March. But today it was extra special because I got to see the new collection in advance. And oh, boy, was it fab!

The color palettes are fabulous for the summer! Blues and pinks and neutrals along with neon oranges and greens.  

Absolute loved all the accessories! There is a 60’s feel to all the chunky heels, big necklaces and white-framed sunglasses.

 

The whole atmosphere was great! I am more than ecstatic that there is a fashion brand with a showroom. It is high time that Bulgarian fashion scene changes a bit and becomes what it is supposed to be, and I am more than hopeful that H&M will be a huge catalyst of that change. The prices are actually decent. The clothes are good quality and of course the trends, colors and silhouettes are what is in and trendy.

Thank you H&M for the invite and congratulations on a wonderfully organized event and a more than gorgeous new showroom!

Daily Salivation: Missoni for Target


 

 

Missoni is designing a whole collection for Target. And when I say a whole collection I mean – everything! Clothes,accessories, mensware, kids clothes, shoes, home, stationery, even a bike! So if there is a single reason for me to want to be back in the USof A, escpecially in september will be to browse in Target for the all the zigzagged awesomeness!

The collection (or 88 pieces of it) can be seen on the Target Style Facebook fanpage.

It is all very colorful, zigzagged and fun. A lot of it is too tacky for my taste, especially the clothing, but there are rainboots, an amazing coat and fab home-pieces that I am in picture-love with! Hopefully the quality is as good as it gets, and not like the Mulberry collection for Target, which was pretty plastic. So I will just salivate in waiting for the collection to come out and wish there were Targets at the other side of the ocean. You reading this Target? Think about it 🙂

Kim K’s Style


As I have said many times before, I am a big fan of the Kardashians. They remind me of my own family (perhaps because I am a half Armenian too), and as a fan of reality TV, everything that is Kardashian-related I find fun.

The three sisters are just fab, but Kim has a distinct and very sexy style. She extenuates the hourglass figure she has with waisted dresses, wears a lot black-white combos and has the shiniest hair in the whole of Hollywood. As a dress lover, I can just bow down for some of the pieces she chooses, but even when she is in jeans and a tank, she is well-put together and nicely-accessoriesed.

A lot can be learned about style from her, because she definitely knows how to choose clothes that fit her best and look great on her.

Necessities, Staples and Other Closet Essentials: The Go-to Tee


A little while back I started a little blog of wardrobe must-haves, that I called Necessities, Staples and Other Closet Essentials. I worte about the perfect bra, the leather jacket and the lbd sometime ago. But after a week of watching What Not To Wear, and a day full of personal shopping for a friends I decided to keep this little blog with stuff that I think is important for every woman’s closet. But, hey, I will completely honest I am not Stacey London, no guru or a fashionista extraordinaire… I am still learning and just sharing experience, so hopefully I will get to improve my own wardrobe 🙂

So let’s talk about the go-to tee, the one (or more) that you have that are perfect for everything! Paired with jeans and flats for the weekend, tucked in a pencil skirt for work, or bling-ed up with jewelery and heels for the night. I have more than a couple such tops that I absolutely love and wear quite often, so I will suggest similar  🙂

The first one is a light gray tee. It is a neutral and goes with everything, but it is not the typical black. It is good for it to have a bit of detail- be it a pocket, a little embellishment or a funky neckline. The detail helps if you just want to throw it on or gives you further help of how to style it and what to pair it with.

The second one is a simple black tee. Typical right 🙂 I spent a great deal of time looking for the perfect just black tee and in the end found one in h&m that is just amazing!  My thing with the black tees is the simpler, the better, because it is like a blank canvas, you can do whatever you want with it, and most of the time a lot can be done.
The only detail that is important is the neckline. I prefer scoopneck and boatneck lines, but a V-neck is definitely classic.  The fabric is also very important, Splendid use amazingly soft cotton fabrics.

There is more to come.. so patience and persistence is all you need 😀
