Trend of the Week: Collared Shirts
While the collared shirt is more of a classic than anything, how it always seems to adapt itself into the current trends’ aesthetic makes this key piece a fashion marvel. Having gone to a school with a uniform, the trend then was to roll up the sleeves and have the top button(s) undone - making the shirt look as casual as possible. Britney Spears was probably the inspiration that caused...

Style Idol of the Week: DJ Mia Moretti
Is there anything cooler than a DJ? Maybe a DJ that also makes us drool over her awesome style?

Mia Moretti isn’t just your average fashion It Girl. She’s a DJ, with...

Black on Yellow on the Runway
Hello fashion lovers! Here comes another week of trends for this spring and summer season. Spring is full of bold colours that are bound to make a statement, however, sometimes it can feel as though we may want to tone the colour down so that we’re able to make a statement in a more subtle fashion. The way to do that this season is “Black on Yellow”. Yellow can be an overwhelming...
it's in the nails.
We’re girls, so we naturally pay attention to detail right? We love our nails because they can express a crazier part of our style that doesn’t necessarily need to match the outfit, you know what I mean? Show us your fav nail art this weekend and we just might send you a little something something!

Not only is she great at what she does, she also has a heart of gold starting her own foundation to reduce women and infant mortality rates in her native Ethiopia. How’s that for model behaviour? (excuse the cheesy line) ...
A girl's best friend...
We have been on a Portuguese blogger spree the past two weeks since the end of Lisbon Fashion Week. I’m a firm believer that just because you don’t live in NY or London or Paris, does not mean you don’t dress like you do. Ivania from Ivania Diamond, has the rock and rock style that pushes this mantra to a T. Her varying style and (beautiful) image-heavy blog shows off her...
