Limited Edition Mango Premium Collection

Although I try not to buy highstreet, I sometimes make an exception for the Premium Quality collections that can be found at all big retailers. After all we don’t always have the matching cash to realize our designer dream outfits now do we? I’m pleasantly surprised about the latest Mango Premium collection; suede baggy pants, woolen palazzo’s, turtlenecks, a soft cotton armystyle shirt, that striped boho cardi and ofcourse those chunky grey Céline-ish slipons are all affordable trend pieces that fill the final gasps in any Fall Capsule Wardrobe.

Battle A Cold With Lemon Ginger Tea

blend

Unfortunately, Fall isn’t just about layering up in your fave sweater or cosy knits. When I wake up in the morning with a soar throat, sniffy nose and vague headache, I always drink lots and lots of Ayurvedic warming lemon ginger tea to beat these first signs of cold or flu.

To make a large batch to drink during the day, mix the zest, flesh and juice of 1 lemon and a big piece of peeled ginger in a kitchen blender and store the mixture in a nice jar. Instead of honey, No-fructos can add rice syrup and cinnamon to make a soothing syrup. Add two teaspoons to boiled water and you feel instantly better, I promise.

Are you in the starting blocks for the sports inspired Alexander Wang collection for H&M? Coach Alex selected Joan SmallsRaquel ZimmermannIsabeli Fontana, Natasha Poly, soccer player Andy Carroll and kickboxer Rivaldino dos Santos to be his dream team for the H&M campaign.

Alex told WWD, “We wanted to take certain elements of each sport and portray the ultimate warrior, the girls had to feel big and heroic, and photographer Mikael Jansson used sunlight glares to heighten that effect against a stark white backdrop.” The television campaign will air October 30th, one week before the launch at November 6.

Three Leather Skirt Outfits To Wear All Weekend

leather1

The key in creating a Capsule Wardrobe is that you can style one item multiple ways and wear it for many occasions like – let’s say – the whole weekend. Combine a leather skirt with a cashmere knit and ankle boots on Casual Friday, with a silk blouse and heels on Saturday Night and with a breton tee and sneakers on Chill Sunday. A vintage leather belt and cool sunnies are the only accessories you’ll need, it’s really that easy being stylish.

Je Ne Sais Quoi Style At Paris Fashion Week

Say Paris, say Je Ne Sais Quoi, the I don’t care but still look fab style is invented by the chain smoking, wine drinking, macaron eating cool Parisian ladies like Caroline de Maigret. The model and music producer embodies everything French; boho chic like Isabel Marant and Zadig et Voltaire, avantgarde like Rick Owens, garçonne like Ann Demeulemeester and Rock ‘n Roll like Saint Laurent Paris. All these designers stick to their own signature style without being a fashion slave, and maybe that’s the most important fashion trend for Spring 15 (oh…and just out of bed- hair).
