Creating themed photoshootings is one of my blogging tasks that I really love. The whole process, from coming up with a concept to planning the next steps, finding the clothes, the accessories, the venue, to that very moment of the photoshooting is super exciting for me. It might sound to you quick and easy, but it's not, trust me... In managerial terms it's an actual project, with a time-plan, a budget and a plan B! Things don't always go as planned and the entire project can be blown up.

This one in particular, was planned a month ago (!) in absolute precision (the skirt was shipped from Hong Kong and it takes 3-4 weeks to arrive) but at that time we couldn't have known that the weather would be rainy this Saturday... so we had to shoot it on a cloudy Sunday! Too much stress, right?

However, I am always looking forward to the next one. Soon!!

Sparkle The Day

Top // ASOS
Skirt // ZARA (old), same here
Clutch // c/o Clic Jewels
Sunglasses // Wildfox (on sale)
Heels // ZARA (old), similar here & here
Belt // ZARA (old), same here

Sparkle. Sequins. Silver. As promised, the outfits that will be posted until Valentine's day will be dedicated to THAT special date. Either you are going out as a couple or it's a girls night out you definitely want to look fabulous that night. I am pretty sure that many of you are not really into red or pink and black is a safe choice. The safest I might say. BUT you don't want it to be dull and boring. So, I suggest you pick something sexier than usual, body-hugging shapes (a belt on your waist can help), show a little bit of skin (the shoulders) and add some sparkle (sequins & silver details).

Sparkle the Day, my darlings!!

Color Inspiration // Green

>> Girl with Gloves, painting by Tamara de Lempicka
>> Stockholm vase, Ikea
>> Wonderblur skin smoothing cream, The Body Shop
>> Emerald blazer with pointy shoulders, ZARA

Lately, I have been obsessing over anything green...  I am a huge admirer of Tamara de Lempicka's work but the Girl with Gloves is my favorite and I think it is because of the dress... looking so much like the one Keira Knightley wore in Atonement! I bought a replicka poster of the painting more than a decade ago and right now it makes the entrance of our house look so fresh and much prettier!

Couple of days ago, I was checking out the new arrivals for SS 2015 @ZARA and the moment I saw the blazer there were no second thoughts. I just put on my clothes and went straight to the store! Soon on an outfit post, I promise =)

The Stockholm vase from Ikea is on the top of my wishlist right now. It matches perfectly with my de Lempicka replicka and I am planning to accessorize it with some fresh white flowers!

Last but not least, I am really curious about WonderBlur by The Body Shop... Have you tried it? Does it do what it promises? I have to check this out and promise to let you know ONLY if it is a good one (bad products NEVER make it to this blog!)
