Bringing sexy back

MANGO Cat-eye sunglasses in red, $29.99,

Charles David boots
Loved by Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, so feminine and elegant, cat-eye sunglasses will always be the embodiment of uncompromised style, elegance and glamour.  Popular in the 50’s and 60’s but pretty much forgotten for some time, they have made a huge come back! Today's fashionista can’t even imagine herself without at least one pair of these “meow” shades. With their sexy, retro-chic style, cat-eyes are one of those accessories that elevate your entire look just by themselves.

GUESS? 30th Anniversary cat-eye Dana sunglasses, $90

MANGO Star retro style sunglasses, $34.99

And though the characteristic shape was kept pretty much untouched, designers did add some modern touches to the overall look. Bright colors, bold vivid prints and contemporary frame materials bring these classic shades closer to the present letting them flow seamlessly into current fashion.

Trendy Indigo

7 For All Mankind Josefina Roll Up short, $189,
Charles David booties, GUESS? sweater

The range of trends for shorts is so wide that one post about them is not enough. Monday’s “Hot Pants” was all about prints and color; the main focus of today’s post is on indigo denim shorts.

7 For All Mankind Savannah short in Nouveau New York Dark, $169,
Sela top, Vicino shoes

The preferable fit for this season is the same for blue washes as for bright-hued or patterned ones. Mid- to high-rise with plenty of room in the leg are still the key features of the trendiest silhouette making even pretty edgy and over-the-top finishes quite feminine.

7 For All Mankind Cut Off short in Pink Whiskered, $178

7 For All Mankind Cut Off short in Medium Destroyed Morea, $189

Major distressing is really “hot” right now particularly for shorts and especially in dark denim. Already with a lot of skin exposed, an extra peek-a-boo adds an even more intense sex appeal. But even very extreme distressing is balanced out by the so “in” lady-like fit.

7 For All Mankind Mid-Roll Up short in California Del Sol, $169

7 For All Mankind Roll Up short in Baywater Blue, $159

Roll-ups are another very popular style this Spring/Summer. Sometimes contrast, sometimes tonal cuff depending on the color of the wash with different lengths from very short ones to the just above the knee is definitely a trending detail that is offered in many styles by practically every single denim brand.

7 For All Mankind Patchwork Cut Off short, $198 

For those who want to do something more fashion-forward colorblock or patchwork shorts are a great option. Original and unique they definitely grab attention and make the overall look visually more interesting.

GUESS? 30 Sexy Years

You've probably noticed reading through my blog that the majority of my clothes and accessories are from a small group of several brands that I consider my favorites; GUESS? is definitely one of them! Overall style, great balance of quality and price and customer appreciation are the main reasons I am a fan.

GUESS? 3 Zip Marilyn jean, $128

GUESS? Eva Vintage floral jean, $138

GUESS? Claudia corset, $98

GUESS? Marilyn top, $59

So obviously I was super excited when I found out that the GUESS? 30th anniversary was coming up. First of all, 30 years – WOW! Secondly, what a major promotion they are having to celebrate – 30 Sexy Years campaign with Claudia Shiffer, limited edition anniversary line inspired by iconic pieces from past collections and ads and of course special shopping events for their customers! Yesterday I went to one of those events at the Santa Monica store and it was awesome (like all GUESS? events I’ve been to)! Champagne, desserts, triple points and gifts with purchase combined with fantastic shopping – what can be better?!

Gift With Purchase 

Here's to GUESS?, wishing you tons of new customers and at least another 30 Sexy Years!

GUESS? Line boyfriend tee, $44

P.S. So nice that 10% of all the sales from such events proceed to the Save the Children Organization!

Estee Lauder Pure Color Long-Lasting Lipstick Video Review

You may consider this review an addition to my Tangerine Tango – Color of 2012 post and even to yesterday’s Hot Pants. Orange lipstick is the link that connects them all!

Lips - Estee Lauder Pure Color Long-Lasting lipstick in melon;
Eva Varro shirt, Marc by Marc Jacobs aviators

I love my Estee Lauder Pure Color Long Lasting lipstick in Melon! The Melon shade is just gorgeous – very bright, crisp and so juicy; it is not overpowering at all and will work for many different complexions. The color is not the only reason I love this product but also the overall quality which is great. Long lasting, fade- and smudge-resistant this lipstick has a nice creamy texture that feels soothing and nourishing on the lips.

Hot pants

Paige Lola short in Chello, $149,
Charles by Charles David Bamboo wedges,
Adilisik shirt

With summer fast approaching now is the time to seriously think about updating our warm weather wardrobes, getting some fresh basic pieces and of course some of this season’s trendy must-haves. I love when fashionable styles are also functional and somewhat practical, in this case you’ll get the most out of them.

Paige Silverlake short in Deco Rose - $135 and
Rust Corduroy - $129

Shorts are one of the most essential items for summer, almost a necessity, and this season designers have paid extra attention making many styles statement pieces. The range of colors, patterns and finishes is quite astonishing and makes shorts not only stylish but also versatile.

No surprise that with the popularity of printed bottoms shorts got some pattern on them too. Floral, geometric, tribal, some super bright, some more muted - you name it! With the huge variety of different prints there's no excuse not to get at least one!

Paige Cora short - Floral Patch, $158,
Paige Jimmy Jimmy short - Central Stripe, $169

Today’s “hottest” shorts come in an easy, very comfortable fit with plenty of room in the thigh. In combination with so “in” high waistline they are more flattering and sophisticated than ever. Pair them with a crisp button down shirt and hip wedges for an elegant day-time look or with a simple tee and flat sandals for a casual, laid-back outfit. Depending on the fabrication and overall silhouette some of them, like a tailored satin short, are a great option for a night out.

Paige Lola short in Chello

The Paige Lola cut-offs in Chello are a perfect example of the ultimate shorts this season. Trendy high-waist silhouette with a beautiful vintage-inspired floral print make this short an ideal combination of retro and modern fashion. Feminine and sophisticated while still so hip and fun, this versatile pair of shorts can easily become your favorite "go to" item this summer. For more detailed Lola review check out my latest post on!

Brows are the frame for our face; well-groomed brows highlight the eyes and emphasize the bone structure. That’s why it is so important to make sure that they look their best. LANCOME MODÈLE SOURCILS is the product that I use to take care of my brows; it fills them in, evens out the color and keeps them in place the whole day.

I love this brow groomer and definitely recommend it. Watch the video to see  LANCOME MODÈLE SOURCILS  in action and find out some more details!
