I got a short break today and had a bit of a casual makeover with the MAC team and Tony & Guy at Somerset House.
Regardirg the make up, I usually wear natural or smokey eyes, but this time they added a bit of bright colours on the eye over the smokey style. And … How much I love braids, but I don’t have the skills to do the cool ones around the head or fish tails. So, I asked for anything with a braid and this was the first outcome. According to the stylist it’s a braid with a vintage twist. How do you like it?
Hello weekend!!! And just before enjoying the fabulous sunshine, I share with you, as promised, the two events I went to on Thursday. I first went to a networking event for women hosted by Maiden Voyage and Maserati at the Met Bar, where I had a great time with new and old faces, tried chocolate cocktails (not my favourite), learnt about Maserati and top beauty tips when travelling.
I then ran to My-Wardrobe’s event at the St. Pancras hotel, which after years of restoration looks traditionally majestic, very classic and high class with lots of red, gold, high ceilings, long hallways and stairs. It took place at the Royal Suite, which has an artistic pop modern picture of the Queen and where they showcased their best S/S12 pieces from their best designers, as well as the beauty products you can usually shop at My-Wardrobe, I even got a little Kerastase present from James, who kindly suggested I should use it to turn my hair healthier looking, so thanks for the tips! I spotted a really cool pair of J Brand jeans and gorgeous clutches. Enjoy the photos of the events and the video when I was in the cab/taxi going from one event to another (I even started showing what was inside my goodie bag). My full outfit here!
Have a lovely sunny weekend!
Trying to save some money and stay fashion at the same time?
Vogue proposed on its November issue the hidden potential in tea towels, rubber gloves, mop heads and more.
Whether sporting a military jacket and a customised M&S bra Vogue’s photos reveal how a brave sense of beauty and feverish attention to detail are key ingredients in an original look. It’s the upturned collar, the scrunched-up sleeve, the cinched waist that bring a fresh spirit.
No matter which the route is, they all lead to the same dashing inspiration…
So, enjoy this and think if you are brave enough to wear such creative things.
