Do you believe in Zodiac Signs?

   They say Zodiac guides you, tells what your weakness are, so that you are aware of your strength and weakness. But... hey, That's it! It ends there. That's the beauty of it.

  Well, I think I don't like that kind of beauty.... I prefer Charlotte Olympia's new collection. I think you can tell a woman's star sign by her shoes, thanking this Zodiac-Inspired New Collection. Will you both match, according to your Zodiac Sign?

Chanel's Classic Flap vs Dior's Flap.

   Dior or Chanel? Difficult answer for a difficult question, right? Well, I think both are great...


   There's something about Dior that makes me love it... I don't know what it is, but Dior has captivated me from the very beginning.

   J'adore Christian Dior, c'est true!


Paris, Je t'aime!

   One word?: Amazing...

  Shoes? One name?: Mmm... Oh, I know!... Charlotte Olympia!

  Charlotte Olympia's new collection, "La Vie en Rose", is made for those who are in love with Paris. 

  Trust me, Paris is the best city in the world: the landmarks, the shops, its culture, its language...Everything in Paris is perfect! Just like "La Vie en Rose", by Charlotte Olympia- I can't read this name without singing Edith Piaf's song.

"Chanel": Symbol of Elegance.

   "In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different", said Coco Chanel. "Fashion is not simply a matter of clothes. fashion is in the air, born upon the wind. One intuits it. It is in the sky and on the road"

      Yes, Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel was the greatest designer of her "époque". But, actually, her empire was, is and will be the one on which the sun never sets.

How do you say FASHION in Japanese?

   I have always loved Japan: it's got a great mix of ancient temples and ultramodern technology as well, you can still see people walking around in traditional kimono any day of the week. I also love sushi, its philosophy and the Japanese Landscape. But, as you know, what I love the most in life is fashion... So, imagine fashion and Japon, "they both together"... Yeah, these days, they have held the Japan Fashion Days: Tokyo Fashion Week!

Spring Essentials

   Spring…March 21st brings us fresh new life, longer days and crisp air in our lungs! Spring brings us SPARKS...Sparks in fashion! We go out and revamp our wardrobe. This season brings us a fresh start, new faces, shorts and dresses.

   In spring, we create. I love this Season becuase we can create several outfits with simple pieces: shorts, hats or cotton dresses...  we rebirth... Light hits everything. Moreover, we can put our sknny jeans on... There are a lot of reasons to get excited in Spring Fashion!  I've been studying what's coming for spring/summer 2013. It's important to do this before it hits the rails for planning purposes and, hurrah, this looks like being a good fashion summer for those of us who are … more mature. 

  • Short dresses has been revived: we have to think in flowing lines. I love them because they are versatile, wearable and lovely. You can get an informal look, just adding a Goorin Bros Hat, or a formal one with a pair of Louboutin and a beautiful Chanel Jacket.
  • I love BLACK, and this year, Black and Spring belong together. It may sound weird, yes, but Black is perfect for all the festivals that are coming in this beautiful Season. One word: CHIC. Mix some black dresses with pastel accessories, big bags or nice lipsticks. You’ll look like Audrey Hepburn, elegant, but fresh anyway.
  • Florals are with us again.  I love them, specially, but you have to be carefull when you wear them. Sometimes, we mix florals with several other prints that ruins our outfits. I hate, for example, those people who wear Leopard print with more Leopard Print, or with floral print. Tey think they “go” fine, but it’s just AWFUL.
  • Stripes: this Spring 2013, some designers, like Marc Jacobs has shown us “optical stripes”. Stripes are fine because they make you look taller and thinner.
  • Swinging 60s checks: Just think in Louis Vuitton... do you have the image of the latest collection? Yeah? Well, it seems like “old” is “in” again. You’ll look stunning in one of those outfits, but  never forget about “simplicity”. This kind of outfits don’t need accessories. With a simple purse, they will be ok.
