PFW: Damir Doma

My first attempt to use WordPress’ Reblog feature, be gentle :) Make sure to check the blog She Wears by Manon Heine, full of her beautiful fashion drawings, out. She’s a history student! I’m serious! And I need this dress…

She Wears

The Damir Doma show was very beautiful, it was all about shapes, beautiful shapes. I had a hard time choosing one look, but in the end I decide to go with this total black gown. At first glance it looks simple, but when you look closer you start to see these wonderful details. It made me think of a Roman toga, but in a modern way, poised and extremely elegant.

Iris Apfel fashion and style quote

“Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There’s no how-to road map to style. It’s about self-expression and, above all, attitude.” – Iris Apfel

How to style a pixie cut

Catherine Walsh short hair styling tip - Nivea Creme on wet hair

Got a pixie haircut? Fancy an unexpected short hair styling tip? Here’s one – use Nivea Creme!

…What?!

Catherine Walsh – Senior Vice President, Coty – on her amazing gray short hair:

“My secret is that, after I wash and towel-dry my hair, I put in Nivea Creme. It doesn’t work on all hair types, but mine is very thick, and it adds a nice sheen and separated texture. I take as much as if I was just going to moisturize my hands, rub it between my palms and shape my hair. It doesn’t feel like anything is in your hair – it’s not stiff like other styling products.”

Isn’t she awesome? How cool is that!

And there’s more inspiring Walsh’s beauty insights in the Into The Gloss article http://intothegloss.com/2013/09/catherine-walsh-coty/

Life in Hollywood

A funny, sincere, sarcastic, touching story about the life in glaring lights of Hollywood:

Mila Kunis Miss Dior Fall 2012 Ad Campaign

“Here’s how it feels to stand in a press line in front of 500 photographers’ blinding flashbulbs: Imagine, if you can, having a seizure. And that while you’re convulsing, your eyes rolling into the back of your head, your mother is screaming in your ear to stand up straight, lose five pounds, look prettier. Add to that the 10 most famous people you can think of – essentially, nine Angelina Jolies plus Jesus – posing next to you, and doing it better: looking sexier, flipping their hair as if every inch of their beings were made of sunshine and dipped in La Mer. Now walk. Without tripping. Everyone is waiting for you to trip.

That’s what it’s like.

Or so they told me. Most of the time, I was the one off to the side, holding a girl’s designer purse as she teetered along the edge of the red carpet-slash-sanity.”
