Chanel UV Essentiel Protective UV Care Anti-Pollution SPF50 PA+++

November 5, 2007


credit: chanel

Sunblocks have to be grease-free, light on the skin, and must not leave a white film. This Chanel sunscreen is great as it protects skin from UV rays, as well as pollution. It’s got a marine complex that helps to protect the skin from pollution. It’s high UV protection is great as I know that my skin is protected well. It’s a little on the pricey side, but it’s great as you don’t need much to spread it all over your face and neck. Get this!!


Miu Miu – Coffer suede bag

April 17, 2007


A friend bought this in March, and I must say that it looks so damn good! The braided handles, the pleats, the gold hardware with clasp closure. It’s all in the makings of being such a fabulous bag. It spells edgy, too-cool-for-school, and gives a heck-care attitude. I can picture my friend, long haired girl, ciggy in one hand, cellphone with a Gucci strap in the other, wearing a Sass & Bide dress, Chanel quilted pumps and this Miu Miu bag. It embodies super chic.

Then and now.

April 9, 2007

I was at a fabulous English inspired furniture shop today and spotted a September 2002 Vogue on an eucalyptus wood coffee table. I was flipping through it, and what I saw in the editorials were the striking similarities with the current trends right now – with the only difference that the trends now are a little more polished and sleeker. Like the whole volume look that rocked fashion world for A/W 06/07. An article I saw was pretty interesting, and seeing that how current it actually looked, I thought that it might be worth a mention here.

3 looks that were rocked in 2002, and can be definitely be done today as well.

1. Glam
The look is revolved around the pencil skirt or fitted trousers, dramatically high heels, structured jackets, lush leather totes, and the overall look should be polished.
Think: Timeless croc heels, structured jackets, fitted bottoms, large bling-y jewellery (but not too many as you’ll look like a christmas tree), croc totes, large totes, Chanel 2.55s, Hermes Birkins, Hermes Kellys, Lanvin Kentucky totes, etc.
Look: Flawless complexion, lip liner + lipstick + lip gloss, full bronzer+blush sculpturing, mascara-ed lashes, clean eyeliner.

2. Grunge
It’s a little Olsen twins on a very good day, a little Lohan, a little Zoe-bot.
Think: Rick Owens leather jackets, premium hoodies from Puma (not the generic kind..the ones like from 96hours), too-cool-for-school T-shirts, skull/pistol charm necklaces, kitten heels, those Balenciaga boots, Rolling Stones T-shirts, giant YSL Muse bag in patent black, Balenciaga Weekender with gold studs.
Look: Natural complexion (tinted moisturizer with concealer where needed), mascara, lip gloss.

3. Goth
Think: Black black black. Lots of strong lines, play with volume, play with textures and fabrics. Black shirts with a super tight pair of black jeans, black pantent heels, etc.. For bags, think Marc Jacobs Stam, YSL Double bag, Miu Miu ruffled leather bags, Prada Gauffres.
Look: Smoky smoky smoky eye, natural lips (just a dab of lip balm), loads of attitude.

Some fashion trends keep resurfacing after a while… Let’s just hope stuff like too-short footless leggings will get out of fashion. And push that scruffy, no-effort-put-into-dressing look off the table.

Chanel – Timeless clutch

April 4, 2007


This caviar leather clutch by Chanel is really beautiful and chic. As seen in the perfectly manicured AND moisturized hands of Victoria Beckham, Ashley Olsen and other stars, this is perfect for dinners at The Ivy or at Nobu Berkley… The gunmetal CC closure adds the perfect polish and class to the bag. This clutch is also available in white and in black patent, but this naturally shiny black is simply the best and looks the classiest. I’ve seen the python variations, but those really sucked!

Victoria Beckham – Chanel Skis?

April 4, 2007


What an improvement from last year’s French skiing trip. Last year saw her with that leather Chanel suit (Hello? A bit too much?) and saw her wearing North Face and Moncler. That really gorgeous aviators with a little retro touch…really like it. Ok, at least this girl has matured a little more and actually did ski. Girl can add skiing to her CV.
