Brand introduction: Lollipops

Hey everyone,

I consider myself one lucky girl because I get to spend some time in the beautiful South of France. Sunshine, high temperatures, blue sky, good food and French fashion; a very welcome distraction from the nasty weather in England.

During one of my fashion loaded trips to the mall I stumbled upon a brand I just HAVE to share with you! It's called "Lollipops" and sells a lot of cute stuff! And when I say "a lot", I mean "a lot". Plus, they don't sell fashion only but also accessories and make up! Cute make up! I mean, look at this stuff! Look! Look!


Super cute Lollipops ankle boots!



Elegant Lollipops peep toes. Very Blair Waldorf!




This bag is pure sugar!

More of a sporty bag


I love animal prints!



Cute make up bag. You can even fill it with their adorable make up!

Above pictures show some of their eye shadows (open and closed). They also have lovely accessories such as key holders, umbrellas and even suitcases!








I don't know about you but I'm sold! You can create so many different kinds of outfits and styles with what they sell and you will always look unique!

And what's even better: shopping there won't necessarily break your bank (well it will, if you can't stop putting items into your shopping card, but that's beyond the point). Granted, I find some of their articles a bit overpriced (key chains for almost 20€ ? You serious ?). But the prices of other things are alright. You can get lots of their bags for under 100€ and their shoe prices are rather average as well.

If you want to browse their collections, head over to the Lollipops online store and website and let me know how if you love their concept as much as I do !

Fall fashion trends 2015 - beware the 70s (and 60s)

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I spontaneously decided to go shopping in London. Also I was curious to see the 60s/70s fashion trend that is OBVIOUSLY going on right now. You'd have to live under a rock not to get whacked over the head with that and I already made a post about the "Fall fashion trends 2015: revive the 70s" a few days ago.

I say "curious" but really, it's more of a morbid curiosity because I don't like 70s fashion very much. Give me 50s and I'm your girl. I can also work with the 60s but the 70s are just not for me (though DANG, those flare jeans make long legs and there ARE a few exceptional other pieces here and there).

Anyways, I went to London and checked it out for myself. Unfortunately, since it was a spontaneous thing after work, I did not have a camera with me (not that it'd have done me any good, if you try to snap pictures security gets nuts here - sometimes even if you only snap pictures of their window displays).

But because I want to show you a few pieces anyway (and we all love pictures), I searched the marvelous place that is...wait for it... THE INTERNET!

 
  above three: H & M


 above two: Zara


Yep, retro right in da face! For the outfits on display in stores I found that H&M went all out (maybe they had pictures of their original 70s displays and just rebuilt them, who knows). 


I'm gonna be off to France and Germany for a vacation soon, so I wonder if the 70s (and 60s) are hot there as well. I already compared the UK and US fashion trends in a video so if you're interested in finding out how those countries compare, have a go:





So, what do you think? Do you find the 70s hot or not?

Fall fashion trends 2015: revive the 70s

Hello everyone,

it's still August but fall is just around the corner. And with that fashionistas are eager to fill their closets with the new trends for that season.

This year it seems we are going back in time (time machine, anyone ?) and revive the...wait for it... 1970s (again and with some 60s styles thrown in for good measure).

I am not entirely sure who came up with that brilliant idea but here we go, stores are already stocking up on warm (-ish) fall clothes and if your parents or grandparents have a secret stash of retro fashion (not so retro back in their days), it's time to raid their basements!

Rebecca Taylor

Versace



Platform shoes, boots, flare and wide pants, it's all coming back big time. Hey, I love platform shoes; and flare pants make your legs look a mile long ! Not sure about the high waist trend that comes with it (and that has been a hit among British teens for months already) though, it's just not my style (I prefer pants low on my hips).

 Zuhair Murad



Another big trend this fall will be checks, plaids and that kind of thing. Channel your inner Scot (and watch some Outlander while you're at it.).

 both MiuMiu


I must admit, it doesn't come as a surprise. Like...at all. it's just something that screams "cold season", if you know what I mean...like florals for spring.  Same goes for the muted colors I've seen so far, although there will be a fair share of disco style sparkly-sparkly going on as well. I personally think incorporating something sparkly or metallic into your outfit freshens up the day, especially if it's a gloomy fall day.


And because you can never have enough trends, geometry makes a reappearance once again and doesn't stick to muted colors either. Ateliers like Dior and MiuMiu certainly appreciate bright colors.

With that being said, I feel only one question remains: when will designers finally ask their models to smile and not look as if they were about to burst into tears?
