The Spring Must-Have List!

1. white bags

An easy way to incorporate white into your wardrobe is with a bag. This structured style adds polish to simple day looks.

2. chunky platforms

This go-anywhere style adds lots of height but is also comfortable thanks to the sturdy heel. Wear them with everything from jeans to dresses.

3. natural materials

Embrace the boho trend with a bold yet wearable woven leather cuff. This one adds the right amount of texture to classic styles.

Photo Inspiration - Kalle Gustafsson

A short bio:

Born in Lund, Sweden, Kalle Gustafsson studied film in Sidney and photography in Paris. The majority of his work revolves around fashion-based advertising spreads. With full bodied color and warm heavy shadows, Kalle’s work feels like a reinvention of old photography. His photographs while modern, they evoke the past. The grain of each picture has a soft texture which brings back a wave of 70′s nostalgia.

You can check out all his work on his website. 

Enjoy! :)

Suzanne Roger's Closet - This is the definition of extravaganza!

There are closets and there is Suzanne's closet! Take one peek through these photos and you 'll see exactly what I mean....Suzanne Rogers is a Canadian fashion icon and philanthropist. As much as I want to hate her for owning a collection like this, I really can't because it turns out to be such a good person. In the last 2 years she has managed to raise over 1 million dollars for charities around the globe using her contacts within the fashion industry. Keep up the good work Mrs Rogers and if you get sick of any of those Birkins dont be afraid to send one my way ;)

It is a movie about an ill-advised use of money which begins with violence and ends with feeling,” Karl Lagerfeld, May 2011.

Red Hair! Is it Hollywood's hottest trend?

Hollywood is seeing red…red hair, that is! Auburn, copper, ruby, ginger, cherry or even strawberry tinted locks are taking over Tinseltown, with celebrities like Blake Lively, Scarlett Johansson and Drew Barrymore embracing the trend. Well, you know how the saying goes: Blondes are noticed, but redheads are never forgotten!

By the way, g
orgeous titian locks may not necessarily be the result of unfairly awesome genetics. None of these celebs' hair is naturally red but it does really suit them like its their natural one! Besides red is not only for those who have that porcelain skin tone. It can work for women with darker skin tones as well. Take Rihanna!

So why don't you
follow their example and choose vibrant copper or ruby tones over the usual blondes? ;)
