Grunge Fashion Is Back by Stradivarius

Remember the times where people didn't care too much after their looks? When here were no rules and everyone could dress up how they wanted without being judged? We are getting that back!

Stradivarius's new collection evokes those memories. Wearing shorts, tights, t-shirt and a shirt with no problem. The messier, the better results. Dr Martens, leather, studs, skinny jeans and beanies. And lets not forget those super comfortable plaid shirts. 

Now everything is back, with a little sophistication in the messiness of our daily fashion choices.

Vintage Fair

Found myself in a lovely Vintage Fair and thought I might pop in and take a look. What surprised me most was not the amount of people wondering through the stands but the amount of young people that went compared to the ones belonging to the 'older generation'. It is nice to see such interest amongst the younger people. Everyone is attracted to vintage items, and hopefully this will last.

A very '60s atmosphere was created with live music on stage, vintage beauty makeover and a cute tea corner full of pastries and a great tea variety. 

Here are my two favourite dresses:

Blue short dress with lace attached to
the front of the dress, highlighting the 
waist. Cute white and pink flowers make
the dress feminine and definitely vintage.

I would pair this with dark blue tights and 
pink flats for a more feminine touch; 
alternatively, brown ankle boots for a 
more casual chic approach.

A cute pink cotton dress with a white
lace upper part. Very feminine, very
vintage and perfect for a casual day

 I would pair this with nude tights,
a white handbag and black or white flats.

Go Sports!

I just entered The Volleyball varsity team at my University, so I thought of doing a little entry on sportswear.

Usually when we think about fashion and getting dressed, we think about going out, events, special occasions of every day wonder arounds. What we usually forget is that we have to look chic also while we keep our bodies in shape.

I have put together my top four 'must have' items when you work out; so you look chic while sweating your heart out.

The perfect workout T-shirt. Loose
but fitted at the same time. I always
tend to choose bright colours to help
brighten up my mood when working

Grey slim fit pants. Amazing
when working out. Comfortable,
fitted and very sexy, for a cute little
workout in a total fashionable style. 
To workout properly, you will not
be going around with Converse shoes
or others along that line. You have to choose
proper working out trainers. These have a
spring on the heel of the shoe that helps
you in your daily exercises and eases
your legs while working out.
A gym bag is an essential piece when
working out. You store all your beauty
products and changing clothes. And...
it has to be a trendy one too. When
you have the right equipment, you
will automatically feel better already.

DIY: fashion mag wall art

If you are a fan of the fashion world, then why not pursue your interest? What do you do with all those fashion magazines after you've read them? Don't throw them away, recycle them and use the most appealing and colourful pages for wall art!

What you need:
- stapler
- fashion magazines
- string

Gather fashion magazine
pages (possibly very colourful).

Fold the pages a few times; the paper should
achieve a way shape. 

STEP 3: 
Once the pages have been folded
in half in the shape of a fan, staple
the two ends.

Pick two 'fans' that follow a
similar colour pattern and
staple the ends together to obtain
a bigger fan.

You may decide to keep the 'fans' in
a semi-circular shape, or, you can pick
another semi-circular fan and staple them
together in order to obtain a full circle
of fashion magazines.

You can use a piece of string if you wish to
hand your new wall decoration. Alternatively
you can just use blu-tack.
