STEP BY STEP :: MY CURRENT HAIR-CARE ROUTINE

Good morning, Everyone! Hope you are all enjoying your week! 

So, it's been exactly 2 weeks since my hair make-over and since I started using Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair System. Because I promised I will keep you posted on my progress, I would like to take this opportunity to talk to you a little bit about my current haircare routine and my new found love and respect of my hair:)  

As I have mentioned before, I put my hair through quite a bit of abuse this summer. In fact, I put it through so much abuse, by the end of August my hair was looking dry, brittle and brassy. Two weeks ago, I realized I can no longer go in public with my mane looking the way it did, so I turned to the professionals at Paul Mitchell. Aside from getting an amazing choppy bob, and a fresh color treatment. Lucie Doughty, Paul Mitchell's Editorial Director and the person responsible for the amazing color I am currently sporting, recommended a shade that is very similar to my natural color, but with much more dimension.

TO THE MAX :: VIVALUXURY FOR DVF


Good morning, Everyone! I hope you are all had a wonderful weekend! 

If you read my blog on regular basis, you may remember last month I got a chance to partner with DVF to style one of my favorite items of clothing of all time - the wrap dress ( see post here ). Well, I am absolutely ecstatic to collaborate with DVF yet again to style a maxi version of the wrap dress! 

As I have mentioned before, one of the reasons why I love DVF wrap dresses so much aside of course from how flattering they are, is the fact that they move with your body. Whenever I wear a wrap dress, I feel like every step I take sets the skirt into motion, creating an illusion that it's floating around you in the most magical and graceful of ways. 

When it came to choosing which maxi wrap dress to style, it was definitely not an easy decision to make. I kept going back and forth between different color and print options, until I came across the dress I am wearing in today's post. I am sure you're not surprised given my weakness for certain shade of blue, but I think what attracted me the most to this specific dress was actually the print. Magical and dreamlike, something about this print reminded me of a beautiful, starry sky... Naturally,   it was love at first sight and I simply couldn't resist adding it to my wrap dress collection. Can you blame me?:)

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK...


Good morning and happy Friday, Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful week! 

I guess you could say I came across a bit of a bump on the road to finding a perfect black tote. This bump being of course an even more perfect oversized Alexander McQueen bright orange duffel:) After a moment of hesitation, I decided that there is absolutely no reason why an orange tote couldn't work with all those outfits I was planning to wear with a black one. Well..., none that I could see at that particular moment, because to be quite frank, when I find a bag I like, especially in a really pretty color, reason and logic tend to go out the door:) But, I am happy to report I was right this time! After I took it home and tried it with a few outfits, I realized that bright orange adds a nice dose of color to my predominantly black outfits. 

What do you guys think? How do you feel about bright orange totes for Fall?

HIGHLAND

Good morning, Everyone! Hope your week is going great so far! 

If you read my blog on regular basis, I'm sure you know what a huge shoe addict I am. Though I pretty much love all styles of shoes, when it comes to Fall/Winter footwear, boots are definitely a particular obsession of mine. So, I figure I'll take this opportunity to talk about one of my favorite pairs of all time:) 

The Stuart Weitzman boots I'm wearing in this post have been with me since last year. I got them right before fashion week and we've been virtually inseparable since. Aside from being one of the most comfortable pairs I own, reason why I love them so much is because they work with just about any outfit imaginable. Whether I am putting together a dressy look or a more casual outfit, like I'm sporting in today's post, to me, they are a perfect finishing touch. I think the reason why they look good with a variety of styles is mainly because of their heel. As I was searching for a perfect pair of over the knee boots last year, I kept coming across a lot of styles featuring a super high stiletto-type heel. Though normally I am a big fan of stiletto heels, I felt like a shorter, thicker heel would give this type of boots a more casual appeal and make them more versatile. After a month or so of fruitless searching, I finally came across these and it was pretty much love at first sight! Fast forward a year later and the magic is still there, so I feel I should warn you in advance, there is a pretty good chance you'll be seeing quite a bit of them on this blog! Hope you don't mind:)
