A dress a day keeps the doctor away

Published June 27, 2013 by The Feminist

There is something truly magical about the perfect dress. For as long as I can remember this particular flirty type of apparel has always been one of my fashion weak spots. I can’t have enough of them. Every single time I go shopping- even if I’m supposed to look for a jacket, a pair of jeans or you name it- I will always end up in the fitting room… with a dress. Seriously, I think I have some severe DNA abnormalities. It’ s as if I was programmed to be obsessed with dresses!
Having said that, every woman should have at least seven dresses in her closet. One dress for every day of the week. Because she deserves it… and because dresses are really pretty of course 😉
I guess some of you ladies are going on a holiday in the very near future? Whether you’re going hiking in the mountains or planning on visiting ancient cities or you just want to spend your holiday on the beach (drinking rum ), there is a suitable dress for every occasion!

My imaginary stylist: Elie Saab

Published March 9, 2013 by The Feminist

Of all the famous fashion designers out there, Elie Saab is definitely my favourite! Mark my words, if I ever get married, I want to do it in an Elie Saab gown. I would probably be bankrupt afterwards – but what the heck!- it would all be worth it!

Since marriage is still far far away, I guess I better start focusing on more probable occasions to wear Elie Saab’s creations. A day at the office, a garden party with family or a girls night out with your besties,… there is an Elie Saab for literally every occasion! (although I wouldn’t wear it while taking out the garbage 😉 )

This week Elie Saab launched his fall/winter 2013-2014 collection and it was –how could it not be?- breathtaking! Just look at the pictures below. The Elie Saab woman has immaculate taste, an impeccable sense of style, a crackling charisma and loads of confidence. She is an independent woman. Men want to date her; women want to be her. The Elie Saab woman is everything a woman should aspire to be: guts, flair and grace. If there was such a thing as “dangerously elegant”, she would be it.

I want to be an Elie Saab woman and I’m guessing you want to be one too. (Don’t we all? ) Unfortunately, most of us don’t roll around in money (bummer!) but that doesn’t mean the Elie Saab woman is out of reach! Anyone can become an Elie Saab woman! You just have to believe it! Consider Elie Saab as your imaginary stylist. (believe me, I do. I’m talking to him in my head all the time!) Ask yourself “WWESD?” (For those who’ve been living under a rock for the past decade and don’t understand the abbreviation, it means “What would Elie Saab do?”)

Follow his advice and the world will be your oyster!







Feather Fetish

Feather Fetish

I have a confession to make, dear readers. In a fashion world where every woman is glued to her lipstick and addicted to her “slim fit”-jeans, there are a few fashionistas who take it one step further and develop a more “exotic” fashion addiction. As you may guess, I am one of them. My addiction? Feathers!  I honestly can’t stop buying feathery things: from feather embellished skirts and dresses, to feather jackets and collars. As well as feather boots, bags and earrings. My feather collection is absolutely enormous! For some absurd reason, I especially love black feathers, because they stand for both classiness and mystery. A black feather outfit is edgy, eclectic and elegant: three words that – in my humble opinion- represent me as a young woman.

In short, I am seriously infected with feather flu. 😉

But what about you? Are you a feather fan as well, or do you have another fashion addiction?

“OMG, you look absolutely fabulous!” : Tips for the perfect Christmas outfit

Published December 3, 2012 by The Feminist

I am OBSESSED with Christmas. In September, I started making a wishlist of all the presents I would like to get ( crazy!). In June, I started planning the Christmas menu. (really crazy !) And every single day I contemplate about the perfect outfit for Christmas Eve. (absolutely bonkers!).

However, this craziness has it benefits as well! I can now proudly announce that I am a true connoisseur of what (not) to wear on Christmas. And brace yourself, I am about to share my wise advice with all of you.

Tip 1: Accessorize

Against common standards, you don’t necessarily need to wear a glittery/gold/ shiny dress to impress on Christmas Eve. On the contrary, it can often be more affective to wear a basic black, grey or red dress and pimp it with the right accessories. A pair of statement earrings or –my personal favorite- a gold luxury embellished collar cannot only be worn on Christmas but also on all sorts of other occasions! Just think about how much fun it would be to impress your butcher with a pair of bling bling earrings!

Tip 2: Dress like a dude

A well-tailored women’s suit can be ridiculously sexy. Just look at Halle Berry, Leighton Meester or Eva Longoria! Or why not try these sequined baggy trousers? Believe me, ALL EYES WILL BE ON YOU!

Tip 3: Christmas in technicolor

Don’t get me wrong, I love wearing black&gold or red, but why not opt for a more untraditional colour this year? Purple, bright pink, green, yellow or all these colours combined?

Still not convinced? Look at the pictures below for more inspirations
