July. Summer. Vacay…. Who doesn’t love July? It always flies by, especially if you spend a couple of weeks on a beach or sightseeing. As far as I’m concerned, I’ll be working but I don’t really mind, because I hope think that the tough times at work are done, people will be more relaxed and I’ve heard that we’ll get plenty of sun, so I’ll make the most of it. Can’t wait! (Actually, I can’t wait for August cause I booked some time off then, but I’m trying the Coué method…). Now let’s get some fashion inspiration.
June is usually the last “hellish” month at work, before the more “relaxed” (note the quotes here) months of July and August. But just because June will be tough work-wise, doesn’t mean we have to dress to match the mood. Au contraire. Let’s bring some colours. And fun prints. And statement pieces.
Are you feeling post-wedding blues? Because I am. Is it weird? As 3 billion other people, I spent my Saturday in front of the television to watch the royal wedding, and I don’t regret it for a minute – after all, I grew up watching Disney movies. Now I want the fairy tale moment to last a little bit longer so I gathered here some of the best photos from the beautiful day.
Flora Miranda. Ever heard of her? No? Well, this post is about to change that. The talented designer contacted me a couple of months ago to introduce me her concept. And to be completely honest with you, it was a pleasant discovery for me too. So, who’s she? Let’s get to know each other 🙂
1. Flora Miranda was born in Austria.
2. When I asked her when she got her first taste for fashion, she said: “As a young teenager I participated in the Viennese fashion contest “Kids in Fashion” every year, with some drawings, and each year my drawings made it and the designs were realised by fashion students and were shown on a catwalk. However, that was just a little thing on the side because I was mainly occupied with painting. When I was 16 years old, I had the opportunity to do an internship at a Swiss sports company, where I was more fascinated by the team building and the way the company was built than by the technical drawings the fashion designers were spending their time on. When a year later I was given a book about Belgian fashion design I made my final decision. I remember thinking that what I wanted to do in painting I could bring to the body in 3D. In this book I saw a very artistic approach, an alternative view on beauty and gender. Seeing fashion as an art form and recognising that fashion is more than a technical drawing but rather coordinates various disciplines, I was very drawn to take this path.” Continue reading “10 Things You Didn’t Know About Flora Miranda”→
Well, don’t mind if I do 🙂 All I want to do in May is to ditch my all-black outfits and rock some fun pieces: bright or light colours, flower prints (I know, that is sonot groundbreaking), striped tees (you know how I love these),… It puts me in a good mood.
In these inspirations, you’ll find all of that and more worn by some of my favorite fashionistas: Alexandra Pereira, Jessica Alba, Miranda Kerr, Xenia VDW, and Julie Sariñana.
