Dolce and Gabbana crowns are so in trend now!



YOU can't fault Dolce & Gabbana for the workmanship or the spectacle - these are two attributes this duo, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, do oh-so well and time and time again.
Theirs is a show that's sure to always put a smile on your face (even when the snow is falling down fast and furious outside and here in Milan it is, it really is), infused as it is with Italian pride and heritage.
Today they brought the mosaics and frescoes of their motherland to life through glittering and glistening bejewelled dresses, be they fitted in that elegant Fifties Dolce way or short little shifts with gracious fluted sleeves. They incarnated icons and saints - the models themselves being turned into them with little princess and queen crowns atop their heads - on easy, loose tunics that were rich in pigment colours: red, green, blue, golden yellow - and which came worn with rosary beads.
It went demure for houndstooth skirt suits that came shapely and two-tiered and there were swingy daytime coats that said prim and pristine. In fact, aside from a Madonna-esque golden filigree bustier (dedicated to Saint Agatha) and a series of black lace dresses with corset-wide belts and A-line full skirts, this was very much a collection that was loose in shape - a better canvas to show off those fashion frescoes and splash just a bit more sparkle.
The accessories here were real hits - caged heels on shoes that shimmered with flowers and chandelier earrings to match the grandeur of those crowns up top (though not really practical, surely we'll all wanting to be wearing them next season).
To end we had a series of Dolce & Gabbana's ladies in ruby red: their traditional finale troop cementing the richness (surface decoration and the historical references) of this collection. And this is what we turn to time and time again from this brand - we don't expect it to be anything radically different and we wouldn't really want it to be.

Classy black dress



Classy - it is black dress!




Dress Miss Guided, Heels Karen Millen, Bag Marc Jacobs, Sunglasses Dior


Today I went for a total black look beacuse I always have the feeling that any colour could ‘waist’ the dress or drive attention from it.

I’ve always put this dress on for special nights out, such as going to the theatre or dinners in elegant restaurants for which I think the total black is a classy choice.
A touch of color can be a good choice if you own a dress likemine and you want to minimize it for a less formal night out. You can play with a colourful pochette, a pair of flashy sandals or a scarf. And don’t forget that jewels are a very good means to give to your look a different tone!;)

Stay classy,
Olena

Men are like shoes


                 
Men are like shoes...
Sometimes you cannot find something valuable through the hundreds of pairs. Some seems to be ok, but anyway it’s not "that one". It’s not yours. Shopping, fitting...  make you so exhausting ... Sometimes, when you are not up to this, you are finding something is eye catching. That's it!! It is - mine. However, then you realize that it was mistake and you send another pair to the women's closet.

Women's shoe closet.  Storage of memories...there you can find winter boots, sandals with flowers, that you wear just a couple of times on holiday, lacquer 'show shoes', sneakers, boots, black casual shoes, boots with lacing tape, red shoes with killer heels - how much!!! And ... what's this? Shoes on high heels with feathers? Did I once wear this? So it is the same with men ... and if they're not around, they go to "shoe shelves"
      
       

Favorite shoes. They really loved - you picked them yourself. Beautiful, comfortable, can have designer's strange look, or simple one - without unnecessary accessoires and whistles. Exclusive. You will never buy exactly the same. No!
Maybe once you will find something very similar or even close to this - if your are lucky. Then you realize that you missing...

            
Shoes can not leave you - they can be worn, out of fashion, just bored, even heel or instep can be broken under your weight;))) After all - they can be lost or forgotten somewhere.... Then you come back - looking, crying, thinking about who is taken them away or thrown out, thinking that they are rubbish. Of course, you will be sad about it. Sorry. But at the same time you will think about where to go for the new ones))))

Main trends autumn-winter 2012-13


        I think it's very interested to know - what will be fashionable to wear in the upcoming winter. Here is the information I found to all your reference)

 1.  Masculine style

there is nothing that emphasizes female nature as men's clothing. It is nature, not the shape. Clothes in masculine style hide the female form, but at the same time it emphasizes the female character: the defenseless and strong at the same time. Perhaps this is the main trend of the season autumn-winter 2012-2013. And it's almost in everything.

         
2.  Exaggerated layering
Part of it - it's a skirt over trousers. By the way, this trend was not invented by the designers, and the Soviet schoolgirl, who was dressed in winter uniforms over sports trousers to wear more quickly to physical education, and in general, the heat :-) I will not touch the Muslim outfits, there is another style.

Another element of layering: two jackets, straight jacket or coat. I saw often these images on a street fashion blogs. Is fashion gone in the opposite direction from the street to the podium, or I missed something?

If before layering was airy, almost invisible, was present in such styles as Boho, folklore, street, grunge, romantic. Now layering explicit, with clear lines of browsing, more direct, and it can be attributed to the classic style. It seems that designers fetters female body in cloth, folding it like origami. Left to guess what's under your clothes...
                   
                     
3. Fabric: bright fur and leather
 As for the color of fur, I'm against it. But no one asks me:-) states: coat should be short, bright, and voluminous. Options in the form of removable collars and boas all sorts of colors in addition to the most ordinary everyday images.

                      

4. Vests 2012-2013: Direct extended shoulder

Vests by themselves do not pass the second season of fashion items. They are in trend and decorated with embroidery, sequins, appliqué, plain and austere,  knit, and in military style, folk, casual, safari, glam rock. Any kind, just designers have found a new form for them. Extended shoulder line, made women tough. This can be achieved with a cloth or shoulder pads. This sort of thing creates a triangular silhouette, very trendy, sporty and fit. Therefore, the best his fellow tight pants, shorts or skirts.

             

5. Skirts: focus on hips

Strengthening trend in 2012 declared the femininity of clothing with simple steps. Skirt barrel, large prints, sweaters overhead and large welt pockets. Skirts down to the hips, in dresses fastened straps at the waist. Large soft folds and trapeze silhouette - the most fashionable skirts in autumn-winter 2012-2013.

        

6. Outerwear 2012-2013: deflated armhole

This form of coats and jackets is a huge advantage. They just made ​​for women with a figure "drop" or "pear". Broad sloping shoulders attract attention and visually balanced with the hips. Narrower bottom clothing ( with such a direct shoulders even coat will look narrowed) does and thigh already stricter straighter. With such comfortable, cozy coat even sweater can hook :-) So, coats or jackets in 2013 seemed to be not only fashionable, but also elegant with the emphasis on the fabric (which in general should always be done with just a silhouette of clothing). Qualitative drape tweed, cashmere, easy to take and soft draped silhouette line.
