Retrospective 2012

 
Here is the retrospective of the past year.
Thank you all for your love and support, I wish you a wonderful and fashionable New Year with lots of posts, style, success and shoes.

Stay stylish and beautiful,
Ivana

Happy New Year 2013!

 

Maxi Dress

Her majesty: the maxi dress.

They fit various body shapes, highlight the silhouette and are practical to wear. You will be free to move and feel comfortable all day long.
I love to style mine with denim jackets or cardigans.

I added boho vibe with the bohemian braid hairstyle and at the bottom of the post you will find the link to the tutorial.

Stay stylish and beautiful,
Ivana

On Color...

Color can completely change the tone of your look and make the same item of clothing appear different if chosen in another color. In addition to being easy to style, colors such as blacks, pastels, silver/golden tones, beiges and greys make clothes look polished. They are versatile. They simply need a touch of sparkle of your accessories to stand out. Angelina Jolie and her recent looks are a good example.
 
It is a good style tip to choose basics in these colors. Having a special place in my wardrobe where I keep all the basics saves my day each time I have nothing to wear.
If you love colors, you can add them through a choice of bag, colouful necklace, cocktail ring, and my personal favourite – a vibrant scarf.
 
Colorful garments can look equally stylish if matched well through color-blocking technique.
 
The only rule is to follow your sensibility and wear the clothes that show your true colors.
 
Stay stylish and beautiful,
Ivana

Uniqinn

We always look for inspiration; be it for work or pleasure, it is the thrill of discovering something new that keeps us going and helps us create.

Style is inspiration and creativity in its essence and its form is originality.

I have recently discovered a place called Uniqinn where talented designers present beautiful pieces.
The designs are effortlessly chic with the accent on details. I think such items always complement the outfit and can spice up the basics from our wardrobe.
Here are some of my favorites; black studded clutch, scarf (my all time favorite item) and minimalistic necklace.
 
You can visit them here and discover new products.
 
Happy shopping!

Stay stylish and beautiful,
Ivana

C'est la Vie


Bring color into your wardrobe.
You can add colors as details, or you can go bold and make a statement outfit where details will be neutrals.
No matter the statement color you choose, always use gray, beige or white shades for undertone. This will attract attention to all the right places and make that color stand out.

My favorite color for the past few months has been blue, and this is how I wear it for a casully stylish look.

Stay stylish and beautiful,
Ivana

Duplicity

Denim.
The all time favorite item in everybody's wardrobe.
 
Yet, to make a stylish look a denim piece needs a good cut, color and details. It also relies on a good choice of other colors to be well styled.
When it comes to the color matching, there are no rules, as millions of various hues exist. Thus the rules seem silly to even consider. (here's an interesting topic to write about in the future)
It is something that you have an eye for, they just go together well to make that outfit that stands out, or they don't.
 
This is one of the ways to style it.
 
Lovely fashionistas, thank you all for your support and love, and...
Stay stylish and beautiful,
Ivana

Bedazzled

Every now and then there comes a day when we grab our white tee and favorite pair of jeans and go on to face the day feeling comfy and fresh as a daisy.
Shiny hair, no make up, flats, shades and a spring in our step.
 
However...
Always add your touch to the look, even for the most casual of outfits. Style is not about fashion, it is about your identity and the things you like. It is about that special little detail. What I use to add the signiture to the look is jewellery. And when it comes to the choice of accessories, you can go minimalistic or bold.
 
Hope you find inspiration in my picks, and tell me how you spice up your look.
 
Stay stylish and beautiful... and dazzle,
Ivana

FALL...ing for you


A wise man once said that when you wake up in the morning, you have two options: to choose to be happy or choose to be sad. So when the first rains of fall wake you up, focus on positive and all the beauty a new season brings. And by that I mean fall fashion.

Boots, caps, hats, scarves, chunky sweaters, fur...
 
Cardigans and loose sweaters are a must for an effortlessly chic outfit. Choose colors that you love, and don't follow trends blindly because that way you will make your wardrobe richer and be able to wear it next season too. Choose wool, cashmere, cotton.
 
Stay stylish and beautiful,
Ivana
