How To Dress Like Emma Stone in La La Land?

Hello there!

How are you doing? Are you enjoying Spring? I know I am 🙂

I was wondering, have you seen La La Land? I saw it in February, and I remember that when I got out of the theater I was all giddy. I wanted to dance, and I wanted to sing, and I wanted summer, … and I wanted to wear some colorful, flowy dresses. Just like Mia. I also want Ryan Gosling, but I think the “wearing colorful, flowy dresses” part will be easier.

I truly believe that an outfit can change your mood (Ryan Gosling could do that too). When I wear black, I mean business. When I wear fun prints, I feel quirky. When I wear colors, I feel happy. When I wear dresses I feel feminine. If we follow that logic, if I wear colorful dresses, I’ll feel happily feminine, right? Sounds awesome! Who wouldn’t want to feel that way?

Boho Chic or Hippie Chic?

Hello girls,

How are you doing? I hope you had a great week and that you’re having an even greater weekend 😉

Here in Belgium, we had a few fabulously sunny crisp days. I love those kinds of days, and it made me long for those spring and summer days (and oh oh those summer nights 😀). And I pictured myself sitting at a nice café with some friends, recovering from an epic day at Coachella, pulling off the boho chic style.

And then I thought, wait a minute. What’s boho chic? And what’s hippie chic? Is there actually a difference between these two trends? And if yes, what are they? And then I thought, I cannot be the only person who’s a little confused about this. (Not like I lost any sleep about it, but still… ). So, it’s only natural that I came up with this article: Boho (Chic) vs Hippie (Chic). What’s the deal, trends?

Let’s start with boho chic. Boho comes from bohemian. Bohemian is:

“a person who has informal and unconventional social habits, esp. an artist or writer (New Oxford American Dictionary); or a nonconformist writer or artist who lives an unconventional life (Wordnet).  A synonym would be gipsy.”

When you check various websites, such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, or InStyle, here are the key words that are used to describe the boho chic trends: late 60’s and 70’s, maxi dresses, crochet dresses, Yves Saint Laurent, Isabel Marant, tie dye, paisley, floral, suzani, printed maxi dress, gladiator sandals, floppy hat, a fringe cross-body bag, fur vest, beaded vest, flared jeans, a coin-embellished belt, denim cut-offs, feather earrings, boots, …

The pioneers were Thea Porter (check this, this, and that out) and Talitha Getty (the featured image was taken from CBS), followed by Sienna Miller and Kate Moss in the UK, and the Olsen twins in the US.
