Dress to impress

Kategori: Exklusivt

Party dresses are a girls best friend - and weekends!

OR everything that blings! I just saw Ocean´s 8 again and I got inspired by the fashion, dresses, in the movie.

I feel like cinderella here yeaaaaarniiiiing to wear an expensive luxurious dress at a fancy event! Meet a prince perhaps, or just feel like a damn princess for a night!

I don't want to settle. I want everything I point at, if only for a day.... sigh.. money doesn't buy happiness but it would help ME. I wouldn't feel so crappy if I wore a Balmain dress in a fantastic venue with glammed up decorations and upbeat music... Where can I find a fairy godmother? xD

One thing is set in stone, I will have at least one silly expensive and knock-out dress in my wardrobe before I turn 50!

I wanna die in a party dress from Halpern! Or this one from Zuhair Murad

see you at the afterparty in heaven' haha. No... that's not so encouraging.

 

Well since I don't have one I found some fairy helpers online: Lyst, Net-a-porter, Revolve, Forward, Matchesfashion, Farfetch and Outnet. Here are some picks.

Some thoughts on the Fall 2018 couture fashion...

Hey readers!

 

I can't help myself but to think of colder times. We all do, I guess?

By looking at the fabolous runway couture I get so inspired. But I don't dare to wear it in this small town haha. Too bad. I wish couture was available for everyone/cheaper.

So here are some picks from the runway! After I looked through the top shows I can summarize what you need with a few words:

  • Fur coats and dresses
  • Big jewlery/accessories
  • Deconstructed and classic classic suit pieces
  • Fringes
  • Different kind of fabrics! Soft and hard ones. Volume and elegance
  • Ornaments
  • Color! Classic black and white, red, white, grey or neon pink etc, yellow, green etc.
  • Feathers, lots of them
  • Metallic colors
  • Patterns - stripes, dots, text etc.

 

ALBERTA FERRATI

She seem to focus on black, white, silver and red/orange/sunset colors. Fringes yaaay I love it, and rhinestones/sequins.

Drama, bold, beautiful, androgenous. Superstar quality.

GIAMBATISTA VALLI

This collection made me smile. Both of joy and wonder. One of the dresses looks like King Kongs fur haha. Not my fav. but some items are very creative and nice.

It made me think of a mix of birds, suits, history, the 80s, stylish grandma, girly dreams and paraschutes. CRAZY :D

Best of - Chanel Pre-Fall 2018 Collection

Her name is legendary and the brand is well known world wide to say at least. I like the chic jackets and skirts for work but I must admit I am quite new to the fashion brand today. Chanel, for me, stands for high class, a classic feminine style with a lady boss statement. 1920's length on clothes and white pearl necklaces.

 

 

When I saw this new collection on Vouge.com, I could almost smell wet by rain concrete on big city streets; salty winds from the ocean and feel the fabric of wool from uniforms underneath my fingers... Chanel's theme is clear as day and I like the mix and history behind them. It's flirting with the old and the new and I would love to wear the jackets and coats any day no matter the occasion. Timeless fashion. Powerful and chic.

 

Here are my favorites:

 

The jackets & coats

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The pants

 

 

 

 

The knitwear

 

 

 

Classic Chanel

 

 

 

If you doubt yourself, ask yourself, what would Coco wear?
