FARHAD RE SHOW

The first Paris Couture Week show I attended was Farhad Re and I knew I was in for a treat when I received the invitation in the mail, which was printed on a piece of fabric: a teal folded organza. The show took place in the stunning Embassy of Italy in France, which from the inside, looked a little bit like a castle. Gold ornate walls, gold chairs with red cushions, stunning mirrors all around – I truly felt like a princess. I sat front row and thus were able to enjoy the full splendour of this romantic collection. The…

PARIS COUTURE WEEK OUTFIT 1

Paris, je t’aime. There are a handful of cities in the world that I would visit over and over again and Paris is at the top of the list! I’ve been to Paris 5 times now and every time I go, I fall in love with this city more and more.

WHAT TO WEAR TO AN INTERVIEW

First impressions are everything! We can fool ourselves all we want that looks don’t matter and we’re not judgmental, but it’s part of our DNA & it’s human nature – pure and simple. According to Psychology Today: “In fact, first impressions snap into place in just seven seconds […] We tend to get attached to our initial impressions of people and find it difficult to change our opinion of them. As a result, it’s important to be aware of how we come across to others during a first meeting” As such, first impressions can make or break your interview, no…

SHOPBOP SALE!!!

Shopbop’s Big Sale is ON and it’s time to snag some Spring favourites in a hurry because today is the last day! A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of checking out some of the novelties in person at Shopbop’s Spring Preview and fell in love with a stunning brand from Brazil called FARM Rio and since then, I really need to get my hands on one of their pieces! I also fell in love with the shell trend in necklaces and bracelets – I might need a matching set. My other must have piece is a new luggage!…

Luckily, I am planning a nice little winter escape to Los Cabos in April, and this trip could not come at a better time – I need a break real bad! This getaway put me in a shopping mood and I browsed Shopbop‘s Spring/Summer trends to select some cute items to take with me on…
