This time around I present to you a modern 70s-inspired look. I've been into this "how to wear retro-inspired fashion" funk for a while... Trying to recreate, bring back or incorporate into my daily OOTDs some trends that were popular when I was a kid or when my parents were kids because today's fashion is less restrictive than ever. No rules, no this is how to wear this and that... All is fair in fashion...and...love. Right?
La Femme Bohème is a free spirit, a soul unbound, undefined, forever-changing. She is a wildfire. A shape-shifter. A rebel. A dreamer. Skinny-dipper. She escapes the confines of society at any cost. Her mind is heaven, her heart is fickle, her hands fidgety. She takes no directions. She follows rivers, currents, and the wind. Her soul is like the ocean. Her fingers on the pulse of life. She doesn't think about the past, present or future. She just is. She's a stargazer. Her eyes always fixed on the sky. She changes like the seasons.
Are you looking for a flirty date night outfit idea? If yes, then look no further, because I got you. When I think date - I usually think satin or lace. Not everyone thinks that way, but hey - I'm Venus in Taurus, so that's kind of very logical for me. Sensual materials are where it's at, for this kind of aspect. Also - I just remembered that you're not here for an astrology lecture. Sorry - Moon in Gemini. Here, I go again. It's a never ending circle, gosh, how do my friends even put up with me? I don't deserve you, seriously.
I've been invited to join Macadamia Professional and check out what goes on backstage at Zang Toi Fall/Winter 2017 show. It is not every day that one gets to hang out backstage at New York Fashion Week, so I've jumped at the opportunity. Been there, seen it and have photos to prove it.
How do you usually call your adhesive bra - raw chicken fillets? Am I right? And why should you settle for raw chicken fillets? Led by the belief that women should never settle, girl boss, Astrid Montalta Unwalla founded Nudwear - a brand that reinvented the backless bra. Because let's be real, us ladies deserve to wear something functional AND aesthetically pleasing. And now, we can have the best of both worlds. Astrid was kind enough to answer a few questions for The Stylegazer and tell us more about her business and how she turned her dreams into reality.
VERDAD, a new womenswear brand helmed by veteran LA designer Louis Verdad, debuted its Fall/Winter 2017 collection at New York Fashion Week on Sunday, February 12th at Pier 59 Studios in Chelsea.

So, unfortunately, I had to miss the Katie Gallagher Fall/Winter 2017 show due to weather conditions and complicated commute. And I wanted to see it so bad, because Katie Gallagher's creative vision is just out of this world. However thankfully, I did get the photos from the runway to share with the world and that's exactly what I'm doing, because Katie Gallagher's Hallow is a very special collection.
Am I cool? Are you cool? Who knows? But what I do know is that you can try a varsity-inspired look to achieve that cool-girl effect. Like a lot of things in life, coolness is something that's based on "fake it till you make it" principle. It's all about perception and appearing a certain way, till the world catches on and you finally get that coveted title of a cool girl.
Let's face it - the blue striped shirt trend is not going anywhere in 2017. If anything brands like Zara just kept reimagining their oversized striped shirts. Now you can find the blue striped shirt with various prints and embroideries on them. Or if you're really into the structure over embellishment, then the ones with bows and ruffles are perfect for you. You know what? Brands really stepped it up to the max that there's something for everyone, but only if you like stripes in the first place that is...
There isn’t a better way to dream than to dream in tulle – the flowiness and romantic quality of this beautiful material makes you feel like a princess or a whimsical fairy. This fashion season, we saw tulle everywhere – from runways to chain stores. Worn with a t-shirt and leather jacket, for a rock princess look or with a bodysuit and lace-up ballet flats for the ultimate ballerina look. Tulle has been all the rage. You know what’s funny? No matter how many times tulles goes out of style and comes back in style, I’m always welcoming the trend. Each time it reemerges, I try to do something new with it. Dress it up, dress it down, play with it. Here's one of many ways you can wear a tulle skirt in winter.
