Fall 2014 Trends – Boots, Boots, Boots

Hey guys,

The weather is becoming a bit difficult those last days, we even had a lot of rain in the South of France, so I had to resign myself to say bye to my wonderful sandals and hello to boots.

Several different trends can be identified when talking about boots. The moto boots has been super trendy last year, and the ankle bootie the year before, and still are, but there’s more and more appearences of the stacked heel nowadays. I prefer over the knee boots, because they keep me warm and look really femine and creators this year have not disapointed us in creating boots that are both rainy-day proof and stylish:

Dr. Martens Boots: 180E

ZARA Boots: 89.95E

TOPSHOP Boots: 180E

H&M Boots: 29.99E

New Rock Boots: 382.60E

Boots can really be worn with everything and anything so go on and have fun with fashion.

Would you dare to wear New Rock boots?

Fall 2014 Trends – Leopard/Animal Prints

Hey guys,

On this episode of Fall 2014 Trends we will be talking about Leopard prints

Yes I am aware « Sping Fashion » is written on it, but this cover of Harper’s Bazaar cannot be ignored.

It can be really tricky to wear leopard prints because they usually tends to slide to the vulgar side of fashion if you don’t pay attention to what you’re matching them with. I’ve personnaly always liked wearing leopard prints, even if my boyfriend hates me wearing them. Here are some pieces of leopard prints I find fine:

Weekday Blouse: 40E

Urban Outfitters Sandals: 62.98E

MOSCHINO Coat: 967E

Weeday Skirt: 45E

TOPSHOP Wallet: 28E

I would totally avoid wearing anything too short or colours with this print. Black is the best « colour » to go with, and go easy on accessories.

Foam Cleanser Review – Kiko VS Nivea

DSC_1348

 

Hey guys,

As you might already know, my skincare routine [and lots of things in general] are inspired by Korea and Japan. A foam cleanser is a cleanser and a makeup remover at the same time. You can find it in gel form and make it become foam thanks to water, or already as a foam. It is not very popular in France, and I’ve been dredding the day it will finally appear in our drugstores. Kiko was my first foam cleanser bought in France, and having finished it recently I tried the Nivea one [two versions, one for normal skintype and one for sensible].

 

Kiko

Pros:

6.90E = resonnable.

(Too) gentle on the skin.

Clear and simple packaging.

 

Cons:

Light mousse, which means you need to use more and can’t use a face brush with it.

Does not clear your skin at 100%. Which means you really need to double cleanse it.

Contains sodium hydroxide

 

Nivea

Pros:
4.79E on amazon = super cheap.

Dense mousse which enables me to use my face brush ♥

Wash really well everything off

Contains Almond oil

 

Cons:

Still a little bit to harsh for my sensitive skin

Smells like house cleansers

Contains perfume

 

Conclusion:

I can definitly say that Kiko’s mousse really is more gentle than Nivea’s one, even if it is specially made for sensitive skin, I still think it’s a little bit rough. Even though, Nivea really cleanse your skin better. With Kiko I never felt like my skin was absolutely clean or makeup-free which can really be a big problem on long term relationship ; )

Fall 2014 Trends – Military

Hey guys,

Even though this trend has been going for ages, the F/W military trend is back this time again.

As I like to dress with an edgy style mixing this trend with my usual wardrobe is super easy for me. But for those who are afraid of looking too bold in military clothes, try accessories! It may mean nothing to you but less is more and military accessories can boost up your look.

H&M Overall: 19.99E

New Rock Boots: 386.51E

MANGO Blouse: 44.99E

Zara Umbrella: 16.95E

Forever21 Purse: 3.95E

Try mixing some pieces with black or brown clothes for something simple and edgy. If you want something bolder you can always pair military prints with white!

I always liked seeing the military trend on others but never actually dared to rock it. Do you?

Japan Aurea: C’était pourri + Photos [Gyaru style]

 

Hey guys,

Hier [Samedi 27 Septembre 2014] je me suis rendue à la Japan Aurea 7ème édition à Vallauris, pour ma plus grande déception. Je m’y étais déjà rendue il y a 4ans, c’était pas top et il n’y avait personne, mais de ce fait, l’ambiance « bon enfant » était plutôt sympa [surtout que j’avais gagné un Art Book Magna Carta au tournoi Tekken].

Première chose, on arrive devant l’entrée, juste à la sortie du karaoké, ça croule de monde et il faut faire la queue. Faux espoirs dans ma tête. L’entrée coûte 2Euros pour les deux jours, c’est donc vraiment donné et ça donne envie d’y aller. On vous donne un petit bracelet jaune pour montrer que vous avez payé, ainsi qu’un ticket découpable comme quand vous allez au cinéma, sauf que personne découpe la partie découpable de votre ticket [?].

C’est là que je croise Miyuki ♥, une amie de longue date, créatrice de la marque The Golden Rose pour qui j’ai défilé deux fois. Elle est déjà là depuis ce matin et n’a pas déjeuné parce qu‘il faut faire la queue pendant une heure pour se payer à manger, en plus la buvette a écoulé tout son stock de boissons.

L’évent se déroule à l’Espace Loisir, à l’intérieur ça ressemble à un gymnase, avec des gradins. Sur les trois dernières marches pour descendre à l’endroit où sont les stands, ils ont mis un tapis sur des câbles, toutes les filles en talons et plateformes se tordent les chevilles et manquent de tomber chaque fois qu’elles veulent prendre l’air. Il y a une quinzaine de stands. « La nouveauté 2014 : les tournois de jeux vidéo sur écran géant. » promise sur le site de la ville n’est pas là. Mis à part le dernier Zelda sur WiiU il n’y a aucun jeu innovant, et pas non plus de rétro gaming. Les joueurs du « tournoi » se partagent trois chaises. C’EST DE LA FOLIE.

En tout une quinzaine de stands sont présents, pas étonnant qu’il y en ait si peu puisque la Mairie fait payer 500E la place. Mis à part un stand d’origami et un stand de dessin [si si] il n’y a aucune activité. Un stand de bijoux fait main vend des bracelets à 25Euros.

En une heure, en traînant un peu, j’ai fait le tour et dit bonjour à tous ceux que je voulais voir. Perte de temps. Je n’y retournerai plus : )

 

Conclusion: Un évent qui ne coûte pas cher en parking.

 

PS: Quelques photos de mon makeup/hair/tenue quand même, sinon la rentabilité temps passé à se préparer par rapport au temps passé à l’expo serait pas top.

Fall 2014 Trends – Sneakers

Hey guys,

I’ve already briefly talked about this trend in my Digital design trend article but sneakers are definitly a trend right now.

I’ve personnaly never been super found of sneakers until last year. I actually own only one pair of them, I really like this pair of shoes but I’m not super found of flat shoes as you guys might already know ; ) Here are some sneakers that I’ve been liking myself, alternatives to the basic ones:

Nasty Gal Sneakers: 68.43E

Jeffrey Campbell Sneakers: 115.77E

Converse Spiked Sneakers: 77.84E

CREEKS Sneakers: 53E

Adidas Sneakers: 64.99E

They now seem to be wearable with skirts and dresses and there is so much variety that you can go from classy to comfy really easily. The expension of platforms sneakers also make it easy to rock sneakers even if you’re not found of flat shoes so you should definitly give it a try.

How do your sneakers look like?

Fall 2014 Trends – Digital Design

Hey guys,

Not talking about the very famous galaxy print that has been extraordinarely popular these last 4 years but is now in decline, digital prints are a statement piece to get right now.

 

Sneakers also really being super popular mixing those two trends [even with a dress] could really be effortless and give you a super edgy look. This trend could be concidered as a good idea to finally wear floral prints in autumn. I personnaly really like landscape prints. Here are some pieces I fall [haha] in love with:

Romwe Tanktop: 17.73E

Mary Katranzou Dress: 815E

Romwe Skirt: 23.12E

Sheinside Sweater: 24.44E

Warehouse Dress: 100.57E

Mixing a piece of digital printed fashion with black or other neutral colours could be a good idea to tone all that down. And becareful about mixing prints, bloggers usually rock these but wearing in real life  is not the same thing.

 

Which is your favorite between those five?
