Hey, Stylish!

A while ago I was very shy to use print on print but after last Prada’s collection, I was inspired so much by the daring, bold combinations that were weirdly pleasant and calming to the eye. If you want to use print on print and make it all come together harmoniously, you should use a formula: one print treated as a basic color+another as a complimentary. For instance, in my look, I treated leopard print as a basic color and stripes as a print itself and this clash created a calm, yet bold combination. I tried experimenting with the leopard print a while ago, but I think it was a much obvious combination. What do you think? If you need some inspirations, check out runway:

Hey, Stylish!

Florals are so expected to be worn in summer, but there are thousands of ways to wear it unexpectedly. I am a big fan of Alessandro Michele’s politics toward new collections of Gucci house: a dash of vintage vibes, modern cuts and print on print, especially florals on florals or florals on an animal pattern. As you know, I like matching things and for me combining botanical print is the optimal solution for the unconventional way to wear print. I was inspired by a couple of gorgeous examples from the runway:

Hey, Stylish!
I am very happy to have an opportunity to come back and continue tracking down the evolution of my own style and share some of my visual inspiration with you. I like to think of myself as a person who does not do brands or trends, rather wearing what I feel is beautiful. However, it is really hard not to follow fashion, even though the style is the priority. The spring season was defined by three main trends: ruffles, stripes, and metal. However, I always liked metallic hues and always considered them being almost the “new nude”color. Surprisingly, the silver hue with that liquid quality works with almost everything. My favorite combination would be white and silver. As usual, I am very inspired by the runway, since it is most an art form, rather than design. For today’s’ look I was inspired by:

Michael Kors

Something Audrey Would Wear

Hi Stylish!

There are several fashion icons that would never go out of style. Audrey Hepburn is one of the most elegant, classy and feminine style icons of the 20th century. If you want to try Audrey’s style on you, remember these: crew neck sweater and A-line skirts are your best friends. Audrey was tall enough to ignore heels, but if you are short as I am ( and also look like corgi), heels is a must have. Enjoy Audrey’s inspirations:

Hello my stylish friends!

I found my place in art and architecture, that is why I  am always fascinated by artists and their talents. Frida Kahlo is one of my favorite surrealistic artists. Frida had an extraordinary personality. She liked to live in constant self-expression and passion.It is so evident in her art! She was THE WOMAN ,the way she dressed, and also the way she carried herself prove it without any doubt.
