Despite slides and sneakers are so high trendy from now until the next season, I've been falling in love for flatforms.

The reason is that high heels (those very big) are making me feel so uncomfortable and so painfull by using them that I've just got angry and stopped wearing it (don't care I'm short!).

The solution to stay a little bit taller plus feeling comfortable?  This one: FLATFORMS! If you feel the same way as me with high heels and wants to dress a little more elegant sometimes without feeling pain, this is the way. Take a look at some models and outfits that are very pretty and trendy for this next season and get yourself inspired!

  • NEUTRAL COLORS 

Black, off white, nude and similars are the best option to maitain a basic outfit (to go to work, for example) without losing elegance. Nobody deserves wearing scarpin shoes during 9 hours a day and feeling pain, right? So this is a great choice.

  • METALLICS 

They're currently trendy and loved by all fashion girls and boys. But, depending on the area you work, it might be "forbidden". If you work in a more liberal field, that allows more modern kind of wearing, take a chance! Look at how many cute possibilities you can wear with those shoes...

  • PRINTED/TEXTURED 

Prints and textures are not so restrictive as the mettalics - they call less the attention. And the bright side (as mettalics, too) is that they can lel up a neutral or very simple outfit. If you have to wear something very sober or serius and wants to give your outfit an extra charm, this might be the way.

  • EXTRA TIPS

1- Short heights: make use of colors that are similar to your skin and use those flatforms with minilenghts to make your legs look longer.

2- Long heights: do the opposite as the short girls - because you don't need to look taller. So try some pieces of clothes that may be shorten your silhouette, such as pantacourts, midi lenghts, horizontal stripes and color blocking.

3- Fat silhouette: enjoy the flatforms to look taller and make use of lengthener effects in the clothes! Dark colors, vertical stripes, evasé modellings, two pieces in the same color or same print are styling tricks that will make you look even more pretty! ;)

Harry Potter and The Cursed Child: the eighth book’s review

November 16, 2016


 

harry potter | harry potter movies | harry potter and the cursed child | harry potter the eighth story | harry potter books

I'm not going to spoiler this post, in consideration to all the fans who still hasn't read the most recently book of the one of the most lovely fiction stories in the world: yes, I am a huge fan of Harry Potter. If you are, too, come with me!

ORIGIN 

The eighth story, originally created to be presented in a play, in London - something that happened early in January this year, if my memory is good - and became a book later, according to a deal made between the first author of the story, J. K. Rowling and the scriptwriter and the director, respectively, John Tiffany and Jack Thorne. So myself, as a great "Harry Potter-maniac", bought my book soon its pre-sale launched. It arrived at home on Harry Potter's bday - October 31st. I've read it in two days (couldn't do it faster, because I haven't more free time to do it).

THE STORY

So I decided to do this review in order to tell a little bit about the story for those who couldn't read it yet, something as an introduction. I think doing it in topics makes it more dinamic. So: 

1- If you're curious and intrigued about the tittle, you'd better be, really. However, I would say the tittle of this book works like a joke. Read it and you'll understand!

2- This isn't a conventional book, written in the same narrative-descriptive way as the others. It is a a script about the play that is made, most of time, in dialogues. By the way, if you like more simple texts, in dialogue formats, you will love it!

3- Do not subestimate this format, however! I confess I thought it would be boring, at the beginning, but I just loved it so much. You "suffer" and "celebrate" with parts of it the same way you've done in the other books of the saga. I assure you is the same emotion!

4- I'll take a risk to say that, the way this eighth book ends, it makes a space for continuation. A nineth book, or maybe a tenth! I would love it, what do you say??

5- This eighth story, that is the script of the play, shows us an unexpected side of Harry Potter, that has never been showed before. I found that really interesting, once it makes Harry more real. Afterall, heroes are great, but if they're made of flash and blood like us, they'll probably have weaknesses and flaws, like everyone.

Fashion 2016/2017: 5 outfit ideas with Melissa + The Cambridge Satchel Company purse

November 11, 2016


moda | roupas | moda feminina | verao 2017 | moda 2016 | moda 2017 | looks | bolsa melissa | look com melissa

I've already told you on my Instagram and also on my Fan Page, that Melissa has launched recently its new purse, made in a great partnership with The Cambridge Satchel Company brand. Its "postman's purse" format has the DNA's characteristics of the english brand and it's so trendy for this season!

The model was made in many colors - the one I've got is shiny and gold. A little showy? Maybe. But I just LOVE the way it fits so great, in so many outfits and it can be so versatile, matching compostitions for lots of occasions. 

So, to show you that this is a much more practical accessory than you think, here are five outfit ideas with my new love!

moda | roupas | moda feminina | verao 2017 | moda 2016 | moda 2017 | looks | bolsa melissa | look com melissa

The off shoulder blouse has a "Spring face", which makes the outfit more simple, when matched with the high waisted shorts and the pump shoes. So here is when I choose the Melissa purse as a complement, to make a high low interesting composition.

moda | roupas | moda feminina | verao 2017 | moda 2016 | moda 2017 | looks | bolsa melissa | look com melissa

Going to work? The Melissa purse is such a great choice for you, specially, because your iPad will fit perfectly on it. In this outfit, I've chosen black buttons skirt, cropped top, blazer and sneakers. Opting for a more comfy look, but not forgetting about style!

moda | roupas | moda feminina | verao 2017 | moda 2016 | moda 2017 | looks | bolsa melissa | look com melissa

Are you in doubt about the colors of your outfit when choosing this purse? Try all in black, I'm sure it will match perfectly. This time, I've chosen short overall with lace finishing, flat sandals (also from Melissa brand!) and round hat - my favorite head accessory.

Long skirt is everything, specially, when you want to dress something cool and comfortable at the same time. It makes you look taller and it's pretty. To match this skirt and my Melissa purse, I've voted for a simple white t-shirt with a phrase. It's simple and makes your outfit more stylish. Brogues shoes were my final choice for this time.

And finally but not less important, my 5th choice so 90's, a la Spice Girls! Flare pants, lace top, denim vest and flatform sandals were my choices for this composition with Melissa purse - this last one was the main item of the look, for sure!

Beauty tips: 7 good reasons to ALWAYS wash away makeup before bed

November 7, 2016


beauty | make up | beauty tips | skincare tips | skin care | beauty 2016 | beauty 2017

Putting on make up is really good, isn't? At least, for those who love make up. Anyway, as great make up can be in some situations, as horrible it can also be in some others. One of those situations in which make up can be horrible is when you go to bed without removing it. That's right!

To preserve beauty and youngness, one of the main tips given by specialists, is washing very hard your face before going to bed, to remove any kind of products or residues.

Here is a 'top 7' list explaining why you should adopt this beauty routine from now on. Let's check?

1- HOLE OF BACTERIAS 

Do you really want to put a face full of bacteria on your clean pillow? If you do, be sure to wash the pillow case the next day because the only thing that would be worse is to put a face full of bacteria on a pillow full of bacteria. 

2- PREMATURE AGEING 

You're ruining the quality of your skin by sleeping with make up on. Your skin will get dry and irritated. 

3-  ACNES' PROLIFERATION 

If you sleep with makeup on, the skin gets dry which leads for it to crack and all the bacteria you didn't wash off will go straight in and cause blemishes, pimples and redness. 

4- PRETTY OR RUINED FACE? 

What do you prefer: waking up with a fresh face, that has gone through a serum treatment over night, or one with 20 hours old makeup on?

5- IT IS SO QUICKLY!  

It takes a maximum of only 2-5 minutes to wash your face and put on some moisturising cream. So "shut up" your laziness voice and just do it! 

6- RUINED EYELASHES 

Your eyelashes will be weirdly shaped if you sleep with mascara on. Also, it can lead to dryness and they'll fall off.  Think about it!

7- PREMATURE WRINKLES 

Your skin is ageing every day and most of this happens while you're asleep. Blocking the skin with makeup while you're asleep will lead to lack of oxygen which is needed for your skin to go through its natural exfoliating process. Washing your face before bed will keep wrinkles away for longer.

SPFWtransN42: what is trendy for fashion 2017

November 1, 2016


 

fashion | fashion 2016 | fashion 2017 | fashion weeks | SPFW | spfwtransn42 | Brazilian fashion week | fashion trends | sasha spfw

Another fashion week finishes full of emotion and lots of news interms of catwalk. Some brands adopted the "see now, buy now" form, while some others maitained the traditional model of "clothes by order", for the winter that are still far away, here in Brazil. 

In both cases we could see something really positive, specially, in terms of diversity, that was big. The event itself has uploaded its space, changing from Bienal to a big stall, constructed right next to the Afro-Brasileiro Museum. The smaller place gave space to a more practical disposition of the stands there, that were small, however, very interactive. 

So if you're curious about what is becoming trendy for the next season, starting from now, take a look at my summary about some catwalks.

À LA GARÇONNE

The brand signed by Fábio de Souza and Alexandre Herchcovith showed very interesting combinations of streetwear with some classic pieces here and there - such as the pencil skirt, which formed a great balance for women who wants to feel comfy and needs to get dressed for work. Another great point is that all pieces from this collection are done by recycled material. A great reference in terms of style and ethic.

IÓDICE

I just loved the raw material from Sex Pistols and Ramones' bands used in this collection. The mirrored pieces and metals used as a completion gave a great impression of an improved 'paeté', but much more interesting. The "rebel-chic" essence invaded this collection by spikes, as well, finished by some neutral colors in their pantene, punctuated by burgundy and dark yellow, sometimes. 

Fluid fabrics were the majority in this collection, which shows that "comfy" is the main word and, probably, it will be not only on summer, but also on winter.

ÁGUA DE COCO BY LIANA THOMAZ

In beachwear, not so many news to count. Powerfull cuttings and cropped pieces with some "social mood" are still trendy, to turn easier the day of those who want to go to an "after beach" occasion.  Strapless tops in bikinis continue trendy as well.

Horizontal and diagonal stripes predominate as some interesting patterns in this collection. Tones and colors we expect for the hot season are also showed in the catwalk, such as brown, white, orange and off white.

COTTON PROJECT

Inspired by the musician and young cultures, the brand shows, in this season, the transition of an experimental collection, with pop referencies and the strong popularization of the electronic scenary music.

A big variety of colors was also showed. Practicity seems to be the focus of the collection, with the intention of please young people with its androginy and happy tones - such as red, pink and blue.

GLORIA COELHO

Faultless finishing in all pieces is the strong point about every collection of Gloria Coelho. This time, she got inspired by Scotland, and has showed  some sophisticated outfits, with assimetrical sleeves and remarkable collars - strong characteristics of the brand -, with lots of contemporaneous referencies. 

The tablet of colors has presented some cold tones, to match the season referency, such as red, navy, nude and burgundy.

SUMMER SHOES

The partnership between Arezzo and the designer Patrícia Vieira has resulted in some interesting sandal boots, in neutral and metallic colors that promises to improve every summer outfit.

Besides the flat models and the sneakers, as we know that they're a strong referency for the season, this is another good option for maybe a more sophisticated occasion, when you're up to wear a high heel.

BEAUTY

The designers and make up artists have betted on a very natural make up this time. Besides it looks a "cliché" sollution, there is nothing more practical and aproppriate when we talk about "summer look". A light and simple make up fits perfectly the hot season, so why should we complicate? Less is more in this case, with no doubts. 

fashion | fashion 2016 | fashion 2017 | fashion weeks | SPFW | spfwtransn42 | Brazilian fashion week | fashion trends | sasha spfw

Nohda, for example, has used sustainable produtcs to create an illuminated beauty, respecting the natural charactistics of the models, making use of the neutral and light colors.

Lilly Sarti did the same, emphasizing faces' outlines, that became remarkable with their make up, the hair was structured and stranded by a bun, to face the high temperatures, and the eyeshadows got some variety between gold and pink metallic tones. 

fashion | fashion 2016 | fashion 2017 | fashion weeks | SPFW | spfwtransn42 | Brazilian fashion week | fashion trends | sasha spfw

Samuel Cirnansk' catwalk beauty was inspired by California beaches, so the models got a little bit "tend" by the make up, but, still preserving the natural beauty. Iluminating gold tones were used such as finishing  technic on the make up.

To create and exotic beauty for the Helo Rocha catwalk, make up artists made use of neutral illuminating products on the temples, light pink lipsticks, to give a natural "healthy" look for their lips and an extremely light blush, not with the intention of making their outlines remarkable, but only to give a healthy and fresh appearance for the models.
