I Love: Whistles Pre-Fall 2012









This week is total madness, therefore the lack of posts, but I just got a preview of the Whistles Pre-Fall 2012 Lookbook in my Inbox and I must say I really like it. Take a look, here are my faves!

Balmain launches its classy S/S 2012 collection

Balmain S/S 2012 collection is classy and has a country-and-western star look of the ‘60s, mixed with “something a bit Mexican, bullfighter’s costumes, and wallpaper from Vegas.”

The designer has tempered the look of the collection with a well-thought out use of chambray, sweatshirts, and sharply cut pants in suede and leather - thus respecting the couture heritage of Balmain. A closer look shows that even the pale denim is printed with faded baroque curliques, while the white jeans employ embossed cotton and white snakeskin.

The geometric, gold beading smothered bejeweled fringed jackets and tiny dresses have been created by an expert designer - perfectly in sync with this summer’s feeling for deco.

Established in early 1982, Majestic forms the upmarket retail chain of the well known International Business Group, Dubai (IBG) which is today recognized as one of the most prestigious business houses in the UAE and Middle East markets. Its headquarters is based in Dubai, with activities in Paris, Kuwait, Turkey and Lebanon.

Fashion Talk - 25 Easy Ways To Wear Scarf

What is this DUCK BOOTS?

I really wondered what this duck boot is when I first heard about it. Did you? Why is it named so? Well it has a great sense behind. The upper section of the shoes are made using water repellant fabric called, duck cloth canvass and bottom has rubber sole. So it’s quite obvious it’s meant for rainy season and is called as the DUCK BOOT.

Way back these shoes were used as hunting shoes, comfortable to walk on snow and water. This shoe is first invented in 1912 by Leonwood Bean. He used a very interesting strategy to introduce his shoes to the mass. The very first lot of the shoes produced was handed over to his customers with a return back policy/ exchange policy. Unfortunately the first lot was not that big a success, though many customers bought the shoes, but were returned back due to non satisfaction. On this he reworked and dispatched a fresh lot to the customer’s back, which was a boom. His count for lovers kept increasing and its 100 years now that the duck book shoes are back in vogue with full swing. This time it’s not just the hunters but the college student also inn for the style.

Are you doing floral pants this season? You can do matchy or clash them with other florals or team them with neutrals for a subtle look. Either way, they are quite a statement, but once you've mastered the art of them they are actually quite easy to wear. My go to shop for fabulous fitting floral jumpsuits is actually Mango. I bought two of them there last summer, they have a slightly lower hanging crotch and make a nice flattering loose slimeline silhouette. Add a cute belt and some wedges or heels and a blazer and you can easily dress it up. There is a similar navy one with little red ditsy flowers in their shops right now. Looking for pants alone, Zara and H&M offer a good variety and my favourites are the ones from Selected Femme.

Lipstick dress up and make up Fashion trends 2012

  Why I Love Them:

That junkie make-up, like good lipstick for bold, polished appearance. But let's be realistic: I am at the University. I got a job! I have a job, a full load of classes, have speculated on the side and run their own YouTube channel and blog. Needless to say I have a lot going on and a lipstick is not the easiest thing, takes out and applies on the road, especially in the case that it's bold colors — you can tell the mess?
