So, lace-up flats. You probably won’t get around them this summer. First, we started with Aquazzura’s pointy “Christy” flats and today we present you yet another gorgeously delicate example: “Leo” by Isabel Marant, an eyelet-embellished ballet flat with intricate lace-up design and scalloped edges for a soft and feminine look. It seems like high heels may have to take a summer vacation this summer because the fashion blogosphere has gone cuckoo for sophisticated flats this season.

Jeffrey Campbell “Prudence” Lace-Up Flats

So you love Isabel Marant, we get that. But spending almost $600 isn’t a viable option right now? Well, leave it to Jeffrey Campbell to come up with an almost identical design. JC’s “Prudence” is astonishingly similar to Isabel Marant’s “Leo” flats, but costs $400 less than the real deal. A few sizes are already sold out, so be fast if you want Isabel Marant chic 4 less!

Valentine’s Day is approaching and I’m still not a big fan. I do like to dress up for special occasions however, that’s why I decided to let my imagination run wild to create an imaginary V-Day outfit. This year I wanted the look to be bold, so I went with a red and black color theme. The floral-embroidered top is obviously the eyecatcher in this look and adds some serious drama while the rest of the outfit is kept classic yet sexy yet feminine. Do you like it? And what are your outfit ideas for Valentine’s Day?

Dolce Gabbana Spring 2015 x Nasty Gal

by Irina on February 4, 2016

Dolce Gabbana‘s Spring 2015 Collection has been by far one of my absolute favorites in the last five to ten years. Now I’ve always been a huge fan of Italian design duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, but S/S 2015 was especially outstandingly beautiful! All of the looks were so extravagant, so feminine, so sensual, so bold! Those floral embroideries combined with delicate lace and luxurious silks? Pure heaven! But that beauty, of course, came with a price. A skirtls from that collection for example would sell for an astronomical price of $12.500, a mini dressls went for roughly $10.000. With prices that high, there wasn’t even the slightest thought of purchasing possible.

Nasty Gal does Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2015

Then a few days ago I happened to stumble upon a few pieces on Nasty Gal that somehow looked all too familiar. And after a few seconds it suddenly hit me: Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2015, of course! I mean, just look at the model’s hair and makeup! Totally obvious! The designs themselves aren’t spot-on dupes, but close enough to pretend you’re a sultry Italian duchess. Some of the pieces have already sold out of many sizes, so lightning-fast shopping is advised.

While I was still majorly crushing for the “Pistol” boots, somehow Acne‘s “Jensen” chelsea boot has managed to gain quite some popularity in the fashion world, especially among fashion bloggers. You really have to leave it to Acne to only have to tweak a few minimal details on a simple boot design here and there and – BOOM! – bestseller! I love all the pointy details of the Jensen boot, just not its price of $560!

Are you familiar with these futuristic-looking sunglasses by Dior? The “So Real” shades have admittedly stolen the thunder from Dior’s “Technologic” sunglasses last year because both models were released around the same time, but now that I actually had the chance to try the “So Real” sunnies on myself, I’m kind of over them because they didn’t suit my face as much as I hoped they would. I did like the architectural concept of the “So Real” however and that’s where the “Technologic” sunglasses come in because they’re like the grown-up and sophisticated sister of the “So Real”, a modern and updated spin on the classic aviator silhouette. But “Made in Italy” or not, there’s no way I’d spend more than $500 on a pair of sunglasses. Sorry, Dior!
