The best of Chanel new collection summer 2018

Oh Chanel and their creations. Always on the top of their game, with no fail. I am always so excited to see what is new. And this Chanel new collection is as beautiful as ever. If you are a Chanel fan, then this post is for you. You know with some brands, you can have favourite designs, but with Chanel? You got to love them all, don’t you thing? And have you already seen the new cruise collection? Some of the pieces are so beautiful it would make your heart pump faster with excitement. OK they are eye wateringly expensive, but hey, it is Chanel.

 

I may say that every year, but I think this year Chanel new collection is one of the most beautiful overall. The colours are bright and interesting. For example some bags feature lime green colour with shimmering silver undertone. Salmon pink seems to be one of the top colour used across the whole collection with different levels of richness. However even this salmon pink has some undertones of orange and blue or green as well. It goes really well with most of the colours of anyone’s wardrobe (which is very good news right?).

Belt bags are back! But do you know how to wear them to look stylish?

Do you remember the time when you were little and you had to wear belt bags? Especially during the school trips belt bags were a among those things you couldn’t forget at home. It was the place for your money, telephone numbers (of course written on the piece of paper, as you obviously didn’t have a phone) or anything that would be small and important. Well, I do remember! And it wasn’t a good look (then).

Now imagine that this fashion is back. However this time with a big bang! The biggest brands transformed this rather annoying but practical thing into stylish and highly fashionable accessory. The principle is the same. You still can’t fit much and you still wear it around your waist (or occasionally cross body). To be absolutely honest, I wasn’t excited when this trend came back. However I rather like it now. It can by chic, if you wear it right and choose the right design. But do you know how to choose the right one for you to look stylish and not like someone who fell asleep in the 8o’s and woke up now?  Well here are some rules to follow.

How to wear belt bags

  1. Choose a size that doesn’t look too big on you. You will wear this on your waist, so if you are petite, it can look like you are trying to wear a backpack on your belt (not a good look)
  2.  Try it on before the purchase. Everyone is a different shape and every style fits differently. Make sure the belt is a good length for you. I was just recently trying on the belt bags. However I couldn’t close it as it was simply too small for me.
  3. Choose a design that nicely “sit” on your waist. It should look effortless and comfortable. You don’t want to be disturbed by it when you are walking.
  4. It looks best when it is styled without additional belt (like on the trousers). Wear it over dresses, skirts, blazers. If you want to wear it with trousers, put on some longer top to cover the belt of the trousers and use the belt bag to create your waist.

Now that we have this sorted, let have a look at the best belt bags you can find right now.

White handbag is a perfect accessory for the summer

Once in while I am thinking why I actually don’t own one single properly white handbag. Not creme, not off white, just plain crisp white. It is usually around the time when summer is starting, so I have decided to dedicate and article about it. Always thinking I would love to get one, I started to do the research and look for a white handbag that would be perfect both with the summer dresses as well as more casual clothes. A bag I can wear during the summer days as well as hot summer nights.

And do you want to know why I never get one? Here is the thing. White handbag get dirty quite fast. I know that fashion is not always about practicality or comfort, but still. Also for some reason, they can look “cheap” if the design and quality is not absolutely perfect.  So the just the combination of the sky high price and the impracticality just puts me off a little. Also there is something 80’s about them, don’t you think? Kind of Miami Vice look. View Post

Designer handbags that are on the top of my wish list

Once in a while there is always someone asking me what are my current favourite designer handbags. What are the designer handbags that are on the top of my wish list? And you know what? I actually find it quite difficult to answer that.

Every day is different:

There are so many amazing designer handbags at any given moment that when it comes to the decision to pick few, it is just too difficult. Every day or week or month I might have different preference. Even my mood or clothes I am wearing at that given moment might influence my answer. For example, whenever I am wearing a lot of jeans and sporty clothes, I would put on that wish list something quite sporty and simple. When I am about to go for a nice dinner I would probably tell you something quite opposite. View Post
