In the fashionworld you have small brands, and big brands. In the fashionblogworld you have small blogs (like mine) and big ones. I think the most popular ones are Fashiontoast, The Blonde Salad and Fashion Squad. Maybe you already know them, but if you don't, please keep reading (:

In love with Chanel

We love love love love Chanel. These pictures prove how classy this French fashion brand is. Unfortunately is kind of expensive... but we can always dream...

One of my inspirations... Isabella!

So... hi! I'm sorry, I haven't add blog messages for a while, but I'm going to make it up for you!
So, one of my best friends is a girl named Isabella. I really like her style and she and me (or me and her, whatever) have plans to be a fashion designer when we grow up! :D But I think lots of girls want to be a successful fashion designer, it's just that, not everybody has the tools. 


Weird heels

Now we are talking about heels (preview article), I'd like to share some funny and weird shoes pictures with you!

How to... walk on heels?

Heels make your legs look longer, skinnier and sexier, and it's also good for your calves, because you train them by walking on heels. But not everybody can! I'll give you some tips.


How to... dress if you have some more?

Big girls are beautiful.
It's very true, big girls are at least as beautiful as skinny girls. Maybe even more (to my opinion). Because they have beautiful curves, fuller breasts and but. It makes you more feminine and attractive. Now it's not that I say to you it's ok to just eat whatever you want because big is beautiful. No, you have to dress your figure well.
The Kardashians sisters have more curves, but they know how to dress (V-hals),  they are beautiful.

Your body is very beautiful, but if you really wan't you slim down with only clothing tricks, look below.

1. Most important tip of all: confident.
When you laugh and everybody sees you love your body, you're body will automatically look more beautiful. Also for skinny girls. You don't have confident? A few tips:

  1.  Flirt! Flirt with every boy you see. 
  2. Look at yourself in the mirror and say at least 10 times a day: I'm the most beautiful women on earth. I have beautiful, feminine curves and I dress my figure well.
  3. Laugh till you can't anymore!
  4. Hold your head up high and keep your posture right. 

2. Wear V-necks shirts or big round neck shirts.
Shirts with a high neck makes your breasts look bigger (so wear it if you are petite). Because a V-neck doesn't cover your whole chest it won't make you look bigger than you are. V-necks also accentuate the vertical lines.

3. Accentuate the vertical lines in your body. So..

  1. Wear one color. When your top color matches with the color of your pants, your vertical lines will not be interrupted. Also the accent is on your waist: your most skinniest part! 
  2. Wear one vertical line with buttons on your jacket.
  3. Don't wear horizontal stripes! Although the marine stripes are very in now, don't wear them. They make you look wider. Vertical stripes make you look longer and skinnier.
4. Wear a motive.
If you don't like your big belly wear a top with motive. People will look at the motive and not realize so fast the fact your belly is bigger.

5. Little bag
When you have more it's better to not choose a big bag. Overall you'll look very big. A little bag will keep balance with your body.

6. A line dresses
A line dress is perfect for you. They cover your belly and with the wide bottom your legs will look smaller also.

7. Dark colors
Do I need to say more?

8. Wrap dresses
Wrap dresses are a big do. They also slim down your belly a makes your breasts look better.

9. Wear heels!
Heels make your posture better and make your legs longer and skinnier. But, don't wear with a square toe and thick heels. They make you look shorter and heavier.

10. Chose the right fabrics.
Fabrics that make you look as you are: silk and wool.
Fabrics that make you look skinnier: cotton and cashmere.

11. Wear a jacket.
It's very popular to wear a jacket over a T-shirt and jeans. Don't close the jacket but leave it open. It also accentuate your vertical lines.

12. Wear lots of jewelry!
People will focus on the jewelry. Long necklaces will make your neck look longer. Your hips will be less in the spotlight and more accurate your neck. Also wear many bracelets and rings because they focus on your hands and wrists instead of your upper arm.

I hope it was useful to you.


How to... dress if you're petite?

Usually, models are petite girls. No wonder, because the most petite girls can have every kind of cloth! But the most petite girls don't have obvious curves. Which items accentuate them? And which make your beautiful skinny body come out  better?

1. Wear tight!

What means, wear pencil skirts, tight tank-tops and no harem pants! Because harem pants make your legs looking bigger, while they're very skinny! Don't wear A-line dresses because they don't support your body type.

2. Wear chino's.
Chino's are like an inverted triangle, the upperside is wider, so your hips will look fuller. Lower on the pants smaller, so your skinny legs will come out perfectly.

Where I shop

Haay people-people :D

So, this professional blogger told me, followers would like to hear some 'personal' things. So I'm going to write a article about the places, shop and brands I like, and why.

1. H&M
H&M has so much and the most are following the trends. They change collection almost every two weeks. Perfect for basics (read: cheap) but sometimes there are special items. But, one disadvantage, the clothes are not very unique, everyone wears H&M.

2. New Yorker
Actually the same story as H&M. New Yorker has two 'brands' I like: Amisu and Fishbone Sister. Fishbone Sister is for some tougher, funnier and less serious clothes. Amisu stays with the trends and is little more 'grown up'.

A lot of people like to compare H&M with ZARA. Me too. But ZARA is a little more expensive, has more beautiful stores (my opinion). The clothes have a elegant touch, and are made out of very good fabrics.

4. Men At Work
The jeansspecialist! Most of my jeans came from there. A bit expensive, but you need to invest in a pair of good jeans. Men At Work has likable clothes, but not elegant enough for work (for a day picnic? Nice!).


Short List: Must Haves this summer

Every season has musthaves, I made a list for musthaves!

-Warning! Although we call them MUST haves, they're not fashionlaws! When the items are not your taste and style, DON'T buy it! -

1. The maxi dress
This item is making a comeback from 2007. No wonder, it's perfect for any occasion. Throw some sandals and a cute reedy bag and you're ready for the beach! Change and throw some pumps, some glitz&glam and a sparkling clutch to go to a chic restaurant.

2. Life is short
Actually shorts are in every summer. But this year especially the ripped one. You really have to balance everything! So, if you’re wearing a pair of ripped shorts, balance them out with a loose-fitting top, an XL tee, or a long tank top.

Budget Shopping: Basics

But everyone can dress stylish although we don't earn 10 million each year. Budgetshopping! And this week theme: basics.

For the all the shoebasics you need: Pumps in black and neutral, wedge with a wooden heel, ballerina's with a cute bow as detail, suede pump with an eye-popping color, detailed sandals, comfy but feminine sneakers and last but not least, ankle booties with laces in color nude or black.  
The prices of Pieces are basically between $30 and $90.

The prices are between $7,95 and $16.95.


Fashiontrends 2011 Summer

As we, the real Fashiolista's, know, fashiontrends change all the time.
So I've set a little list of the fashiontrends this summer, because it's always nice if you can be the fashionexpert and tell all your friends, so they can be amazed you know so much about fashion ;)

-Just saying: They are just trends, not fashionlaws. Please dress how you want to dress. -

1. Color Block
If you haven't heard of this term, you've must been living underneath a rock during this year. Because this is the hottest trend of this moment. But, as you know, fashion will be always one step higher then you, and this trend is close to 'out' when you've read this article. But, colorblocking is very funny and actually quite difficult, it's not so easy as it looks like. There are no rules, you can mixed every color with every color. That seems easy, but when the pieces with bold colors have prints, it's an absolute no-no. Then it will look as an total mess in general. So look out!
Colors who go very well with each other:
Pink and red.
Green and blue.
Orange and pink.
Yellow and black.
