The prom season is approaching fast! There’s a million reasons to love beautiful dresses, but this prom season I am loving these 3 trends. I wanted to give you guys some inspiration on what to wear whether you are going to a beautiful summer wedding or wanting to look picture perfect for prom, so check out these amazing gowns. Here are my three favorite trends:

Something I have noticed especially these past few years is how the prom and wedding guest dresses seemed to go from very over-the-top to a more refined and simple styles. There are so many beautiful dresses that have simple yet classic designs, and what’s fun about these dresses is that you have more room to play with the accessories! I also find that the minimalistic dresses I buy I get more wear out of, because you can style them in so many ways. When I shop for event type clothing I always try to keep in mind that whatever I end up with should work for other occasions as well.

I love a good lace dress, whether it’s a long one (like the one above), short one or that the lace is simply in the details. Is a great way to make a casual dress more formal and this season there are so many to pick from! I find that most times whenever I wear a lace dress, I hold back on the accessories because the lace is often a statement of its own. I particularly like the peek-a-boo lace, sometimes it’s just sticking out from the bustier part of a dress, and sometimes only the shoulder part of the dress is lace regardless, it’s a fun and classic way to show a bit of lace.

A lot of times people automatically think that prom equals long dresses, but if you decide to take a fashion risk and go for a shorter version you can play around with so many different styles. Another good thing to keep in mind for these shorter options is how well they transition. Going to a summer wedding this summer? perfect, these short dresses make for a great piece to wear over and over.

Oh, and don’t forget shorter dresses are way easier to dance all night in!

I have, for some reason always admired the past and not in a ‘everything was way better in the good ole’ days’ kinda of way 1. I am not old enough to say that with any credibility and 2. I really enjoy the present. But, I have on the other hand always felt inspired by the past; its fashion, icons and everlasting glamour have never failed to trigger my own fashion creativity and curiosity. I remember looking through my grandmother’s old photo albums, books and LP covers feeling as if they could provide a tiny window into a completely different age. I have mixed a couple of old Hollywood photos with a pinch of some new glamour.

The Russian Fashion Mafia

May 11, 2013

The Russian Fashion pact, better known as the mafia consist of the super fashionable friends: Miroslava Duma, Elena Perminova, Anya Ziourova, Ulyana Sergeenko, and Vika Gazinskaya. In my opinion their impeccable high impact style needs to be celebrated with a little Russian-fashion-mafia mood-board, Enjoy!

Splurge worthy

April 28, 2013

Image

Although my first and foremost expense with regards to clothing usually ends up being handbags, I am quite the sucker for killer heels. I wanted to share some ‘splurge worthy pieces’ that are not so …well black, white or nude. (although I will make an exception for the gorgeous studded Valentino heel). The Manolo Blahnik hangisi, or “the Carrie” as it is more famously named in Sex and the city is equivalent to the classic black Louboutin pump in my eyes, It oozes classic, fun yet very versatile style. A rather new favorite are the Studded Valentino shoes, I have seen them everywhere on blogs ranging from Wendy’s lookbook to The Blonde Salad. Aren’t they beautiful? And…my ocean blue obsession continues with these amazing Nicholas Kirkwood heels If you read ByCelina.com, you might have seen them there, she wore them impeccably! Lastly, Mr. Louboutin. Always flawless, but how about trying a more daring color? Yellow is always good for spring/summer.

Happy Sunday everyone!

And oh, for all you Lana fans (myself included) you should give this remix a listen:

The Great Gatsby

April 17, 2013

The Great Gatsby, might possibly be my favorite novel of all time so when I heard they were making a new version of the film I started counting down the days. With the film’s premier just being a couple of days ago, Vogue shot a beautifully styled photoshoot with one of the main actresses, Carrie Mulligan. How beautiful is she? and it is shot by Mario Testino of course.

Right now, I am doing the insanity work outs which yes… are exactly as crazy as it sounds. After about 40 minutes you have already burned between 800-1000 calories. That’s crazy right? I am extremely happy with the workouts as of right now (if you count the daily soreness of literally every single muscle in my body, that I cannot (for shit) feel my butt or that I am eating salad and salad (and avocadoes) all day..) but, hey. Beachbody2013 eeh?
