Hats are back & have made their way into everyone’s casual style. With many celebrities favoring fedoras or wide brim, Hat isdefinitely the “it” accessory of the Spring/Summer season👧.
I’m so excited for its return, but why did it disappear for so long?
👉According to the Wall Street Journal, “In the 1930s, ’40s, and parts of the ’50s, a man wasn’t considered fully dressed unless he had a hat on🎩. But by the 1960s, hat wearing fell off, partly as a result of longer hairstyles, cars with lower roofs and resistance from some World War II vets who didn’t want to wear things on their heads after wearing helmets for so long. John F. Kennedy’s habit of not wearing a hat was seen as the final blow for hat wearing”.
👉Thanks to celebrities, fashion designers & inspirational images of old Hollywood legends like Frank Sinatra & Audrey Hepburn the hat is back in fashion again👄.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with your style by adding new details such as Hat👒
I wore a gorgeous wide brim Chanel hat the other day & fell head over heels for this effortless chic detail 😍😍
Today’s blog is about why I love cross-bags. I sort of always wanted to write about this topic and this season is absolutely the right time.

Cross-bags are the perfect accessory for hands free Christmas shopping. You don’t want to go shopping with a big bag that weights 10 kilos. I recently read an article on how women can actually use it’s heavy bag to do some training…but still, please let’s leave those triceps and biceps exercises for the gym. Cross-bags distribute the weight of the bag over all the body instead of centralizing it on one shoulder and causing back pains.

Moreover oversized bags are on my black list for short girls. If you’re short, I highly recommend small cross-bags that fit proportionally with your body.
Investing in a cross-bag is a wise decision. As shown by past trends, cross-bags fashion did not die out and will never do.

Further more, cross-bags are the only bags you can buy in loud colors. Personally Most of my big bags are in pastel hue or black because imagine a big red bag!!! However a tiny cross-bag alongside your chest in red would be flawless. Chanel cross-bags in neon green were a hit this season.

So a cross bag is a must have in your closet. It could be worn casually or if going to a party. Cross bags are faultless if you are on a trip or attending a concert…on my last trip to Rome I couldn’t been more thankful for having a cross bag that fits under my coat on those long cold sightseeing walks….

Outerwear is one of the most important statement pieces in any wardrobe. But which trends will drive sales this season?
Through its visually distinctive properties and timeless appeal, fur is making a huge comeback in designer collections for Fall/Winter 2014-15.
While fur was introduced to fashion in the 1950s in form of long coats, today we find shorter jackets and funkier patterns of furs on the runway, in addition to the availability of fur in different colors and shapes 🙂
So make sure you have your dose of fur this season!!
Life is too short so put on your red Chanel (a Samoa lipstick will also do the job ;)) and start your day with a touch of glamor and power. Make red not only your date for clubs and weddings, but also your best friend for lunches, brunches and daily occasions.
When red lipstick was first launched it was worn for lunches and daily events and rarely ( I emphasize on rarely ) for dinners!
Take Time to choose your perfect red . Usually when you buy a red over the counter they always tend to give you the flashy famous red and it may not suit you. Choose a shade of red that suits not only your skin tone but also your hair color, your eyes and your overall outfit. Yes, red lipstick is not a black dress, you can go wrong with it and end up looking like a clown .Therefore, contour is not old fashion, use a red color one to mark your lips then apply your Matt lipstick.
My red lipstick for this season is dark red, I am currently using my Mac viva glam which is a moderate red shade, not very dark and not so bright that gives a perfect warm winter look.

Since all fragrance brands are going for a private and exclusive collection especially after the great success of the Tom Ford collection, as a woman I‘m having difficulties in choosing the right perfume for me between them all. Not to mention that these perfumes are a bit expensive so choosing the wrong one is not an option. So here is a small guide for you girls out there to help you choose the right Channel perfume for you!
A wintery perfume that fits the ladies who like heavy, strong and long lasting fragrance, touch of oriental breath, and the smell just gets better and better through the day. It’s mine and my friend Jess’ favorite!
Woody, it’s known as a noble fragrance , this perfume is elegant, luxurious and powerful. It’s made for classy women, not anyone can pull it off.

Natural yet not an ordinary perfume, you might think it’s simple at first but it hides a stunning blend of mystery. Are you natural yet mysterious lady? It’s your fragrance.
Chanel Eau de cologne
Refreshing, casual and fashionable even though it has been around since the 18th century. It’s a fruity fragrance with a light floral sensation. You can smell the citrus fruit unmistakably.

With Elie Saab I feel that I am escaping in the couture fantasy. the Collection is inspired by the American Painter Mark Rotkho known by his abstract expressionist pieces.

Donatella Versace injected bad girl attitude for atelier Versace with the black color present in all of the fall-winter show, but she is the queen of Excess & might be too much for some; this collection would be considered for eccentric women.
Marco Zanini collection was very daring and artistic, it was full of bold mixes such as a caramel silk shirt paired with pastel pink trousers tightened by a green belt; critics coded this collection more mature & harmonious than last year’s. The designer Marco Zanini paid tribute to Elsa Schiaparelli with this recent collection.
