(Das passarelas à vida real) Lição de Cores
Let’s admit it. We all love to emulate celebrities and recreating their looks for less is kinda of funny. I just posted today’s bargain finds and look what I found: LBD similar to SJParker’s and Gwyneth’s
Vamos admitir: toda mulher gosta de ficar sonhando com os looks das celebridades e, quando achamos um vestidinho bem parecido e que não custa uma fortuna, é uma alegria! Fui dar uma olhada nas ofertas da Asos e acabei achando dois pretinhos bem parecidos com os da SJP e da Gwyneth.
My new year’s resolutions were challenged as soon as I saw this beautiful outfit! The old me would have gone inside the shop, swept the credit card and (probably) would have this outfit resting in the back of my closet for, let’s say, another month! “Shop your closet!” the voice inside my head advised me… Wise decision. As soon as I came home, I remember I do own a pleated long skirt and a jacket similar to that one! I have already the whole outfit! That’s why I fell in love for it so quickly.
I spotted a few looks from the runaways and went bargain shopping just to realise it’s possible to create a spring look around pieces for sale from winter collection.
Ralph Lauren trousers at yoox to create a look around “bubblegum colours” as seen on Richard Nicoll catwalk.
The flippy navy blue dress at Topshop for a navy look as seen on Caroline Charles, Margaret Howell and Rodnik Band.

>Taking style clues from Gucci and Chloe, I decided to shop for neutral-hued pieces. Visiting Mango Outlet, I found a bolero very similar to the one Gucci presented on the catwalk. From the runways to the subways, my pretties! I choose the bone version. I am looking forward to receive it and pair it with a nice neutral dress and great accessories.
Buscando inspiração nas coleções Gucci e Chloe para novos looks em tons neutros, acabei achando uma pechincha no Outlet de Mango. Trata-se de um bolero idêntico ao que Gucci levou a`s passarelas. Na cor bege clara, fica muito parecido! Com um tubinho em tom neutro, claro e acessórios poderosos, rende uma composição interessantíssima.
>Prints are making up a lot of collections for spring/summer 2011. The ‘inspired by an epic tale of mysticism’ looks, as seen on the SS11 London Fashion Week, presented glorious floral designs, paisley and botanical prints. Browsing some ideas on how to incorporate some prints into my wardrobe, I found excellent ideas. From hight street designs to exclusive pieces, there is a vast choice. It all depends on how much you are willing to spend. Topshop Unique Collection just arrived and for 200 GBP I could have a 100% silk pink print jumpsuit. However, I decided to snap up bargains. There’s a certain thrill in bargain shopping that comes with the hunt and when you finally find something for a fraction of the price that still gives the seasons’ look that counts, well… what can I say? Mission accomplished?!
