Mango Zebra Jumper: THE Sweater!

by , in
In my last post I wrote about some cool sweaters I found at Mango´s. I saved this one though for its own post because this sweater is “THE sweater”. Just like last year, where Kate Moss ended the catalogue with a super cute pastel jumper, in this fall catalogue she rocks with this zebra printed jumper available from this October 31th. Tomorrow!!

I can’t wait! Be ready because this one will be sold out fast, real fast!

I want some new black sunglasses!!

by , in
I know how hard it is to be satisfied with want we have. Maybe it’s a psychological problem but I’m always in need of something. What is it now? I reeeeeeaaaaally need some new pair of black sunglasses. I always end up buying brown ones because I think it looks good on my skin but now it’s time to advance to a black pair. The problem is which ones to choose.

I found some cool ones around the web but am still so in doubt. These are some of the possibilities:

Calvin Harris - Sweet Nothing ft. Florence Welch

by , in
A new section I’m starting today only about music. I will post the music that at the moment is running through my veins, that makes me dream, chill, imagine everything is possible. No matter if sad, funny, techno or rock and roll music is one of life´s best gems.

I love Florence and the machine and Florence Welch in particular. If you read my blog you know she is one of the “Girls I really like” section. This music with the new dance music phenomenon, Calvin Harris, is awesome. Makes me wanna dance, roll my body and my head and just spin around. How good is this? Great!
You took my heart and you held it in your mouth
And, with a word all my love came rushing out
And, every whisper, it's the worst, emptied out by a single word
There is a hollow in me now…”

I was looking for a necklace with dark red stones. I saw some that I liked but none made my heart beat fast. When I saw this Zara necklace I thought to myself: That’s it! This is the one! It is a strong statement necklace but it´s beautiful and very original.

Jessica Biel pink wedding dress

by , in
When we look at a wedding picture the first thing we put our eyes on is at the bride´s dress. No matter if the bride is beautiful or ugly, slim or fat, attention is always turned into the dress. Now multiply this fact when the bride is rich and famous!

As you know Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel got marry a couple of days ago and I came across the cover of People Magazine that has the picture of the beautiful couple. At first I wasn’t sure if it was a real picture of the wedding, when I realized it was I spent some good seconds looking and Jessica without quite knowing what to think. A pink dress? Pink?? I have never imagined Jessica choosing a pink wedding dress with plenty of tulle to make a whole class of ballerina’s dresses.

I always think Jessica would be gorgeous on her wedding day. Probably wearing some dramatic and at the same time femme fatal Ellie Saab or Valentino dress. Not a romantic Cinderella pink dress.
To prove my point I post some pictures of Jessica’s most perfect looks. She could have done any of them right? In white of course….

Remember this? Marion Cotillard and the Jean Paul Gaultier mermaid dress

by , in
This lady has the gift of taking the stage of all red carpets. It would be easy to name not only one but several stunning looks used by her but this one, Oh My!

This night, when Marion Cotillard walked with this magnificent Jean Paul Gaultier model eyes were glued on this white and silver mermaid inspired. The dress was printed with fish scales and laboriously hand-embroidered. Undoubtedly a piece of art!
Plus she took the Oscar home… what a night!

Portugal Fashion Summer 2013: My favorites

by , in
I couldn’t pass the Portugal Fashion Summer 2013 show without making my list of favorites. Portuguese fashion is definitely growing and it’s good to know that the crisis is not blocking designer´s creativity.

Congrats to everybody involved; designers, brands, it’s not easy to do fashion in this country, so you all have my sympathy. But of course I enjoy some collections more than others. These are my favorites.
Alves/Gonçalves: Very minimalist, though elegant and feminine as always. Maybe some lack of color but I quite like the straight lines and cuts.

Carlos Gil: A very feminine collection. I like the pastel colors and the flowery. The dresses are beautiful.


Diogo Miranda: My favorite! I loved everything! The colors, the models, the originality, the fusion of styles .... Everything!


Filipe Oliveira Baptista: Filipe´s collection are always good, this one is nice, not great though. I enjoyed the patterns and the mix of colors the most.


Ricardo Preto for MEAM: It´s a very summery collection. Simple, beautiful and very commercial which is also important.


João Melo Costa: From all the rookies this one is my favorite. Although very dark I can find some originality. I like the fabric and the creativity of some models.
