Dream Closet

Since I had absolutely nothing to do on this sunday noon, I started playing with polyvore creating sets of clothes and items I would really, really love to own. Shortly after I was done, I thought why not share them on the blog? I believe it is a cool way of people get to know my personal style a little bit. 

Uma vez que, eu não tinha absolutamente nada para fazer nesta tarde de domingo, comecei a "brincar" com no polyvore criando sets de roupas e artigos que eu adorava mesmo possuir. Logo após terminar esta "brincadeira", pensei porque não partilhá-la no blog? Acredito que esta seja uma maneira engraçada de ficarem a conhecer o meu estilo pessoal um pouco.

basics #1


One thing you may have noticed: I absolutely love neutral colors such as black, white or grey. I don't believe in big logos printed all over the place, I think it looks kinda tacky. Red or berry lips are always my fave, they always save my makeup look but, sometimes winged eyeliner take the leading role.

Uma coisa que podem ter notado: eu gosto imenso de cores neutras como preto, branco ou cinza. Não acredito em grandes logótipos estampados por todo o lado, até acho um pouco "foleiro". Lábios vermelhos ou mais escuros são sempre os meus favoritos, salvam qualquer maquilhagem mas, por vezes, eyeliner líquido bem puxado assume o papel principal.

Basics #2

Aside from neutral colors, royal blue or bright red are my other two favorite colors to wear, I think they look gorgeous in all skin tones.One thing I'm really craving for this summer: a gorgeous draped skirt like the one on the picture above. Pencil skirts are great but, in my daily basis, I really love cotton maxi or midi skirts, they're so comfortable and practical, specially during mid season.

À parte de cores neutras, azul real ou vermelho vivos são as duas cores que mais gosto de vestir e, penso que são duas cores que ficam lindamente em qualquer tom de pele. Uma peça de roupa que quero mesmo para este verão: uma saia drapeada como a da imagem. Saias lápis são ótimas mas, no meu dia-a-dia, gosto bastante de usar saias maxi ou midi de algodão, são tao práticas e confortáveis, especialmente durante a meia-estação.

Basics #4

I love to mix and match styles but specially feminine vibes with a little masculine touch or classy pieces with edgier ones. My favorite materials are, without any doubt, cotton, wool, denim, fake leather and suede.

Gosto muito de misturar diferentes estilos e inspirações mas, o que gosto mesmo é de misturar vibes mais femininas com um toque masculino ou combinar peçãs mais clássicas com outras mais edgy. Os meus materiais favoritos são, sem dúvida, algodão, lã, ganga, pele e camurça (falsas).

Bandana


Seeking vibes from ancient eras, this spring, fashion drinks inspiration from the 70's. Namely bandanas that come as cool as ever, now in a modern and chic approach. Combined with staple and timeless basics, this accessory is the ideal solution to warm your mid season outfits and give those a pinch of coolness. The paisley pattern is definitely the most common one, the fabric it wants in cotton or silk.

Buscando inspiração de outras eras, nesta primavera, a moda vai eber inspiração aos anos 70. Nomeadamente, as bandanas que chegam tão porrieiras como sempre mas assumindo uma abordagem moderna e elegante. Combinados com básicos intemporais, este acessório é a solução ideal para aquecer os conjuntos da meia-estação e dar-lhes uma pitada de coolness. O padrão "paisley" é o mais comum e os lenços querem-se em algodão ou seda.

Ugly Outfits at the Oscars

Keep in mind that these ladies went wrong this year but they still have next year to redeem themselves.

 
Looks like an unfinished work made out of silver bricks. 

 
How nice to see a armor from the good old medieval era walking down the red carpet.

 
I get so upset when my faves show up looking terrible. The dress looks like it was bitten by the dog in the sheath and the pattern whose colors look like they're dying. Girl, you could have call me and we would have gone to the mall together to find something waaaaaay more cute than this.

 
Do not steal your grandma's curtains to make a dress.

 
Ugly dress, boring hair. Enough said.

 
Even though her dress is cute, someone should have told Gaga that, according to the fairy tale, Cinderella left her working gloves at home when she went to the ball.

 
First rule on how not to look tacky: either show cleavage or leg, not both. Miss, welcome to the tacky club.

 
Is this outfit a joke? Cause it made me laugh.

 
Already have the man, she no give a damn about the outfit.

 
She was in her way to her high school prom but then, her GPS got messed up and she ended up on the red carpet.

 
Someone tell this woman toilet paper is not considered a sewing material.

 
Usually I'm a fan of her style but in this case, Solange's waist got scared and ran away

Layer After Layer

We all know and agree that winter is a tricky season when it comes about getting dressed! We want to wear cute stuff and still keep warm and cozy. The answer to save all your outfits is simple: layers! I really like to layer because you can still look cute at the same time you're warm. Layering is, literally, the best of both worlds. ModCloth is an online store that has a vast selection of Cute Sweaters, with such selection I'm sure anyone can find a sweater suitable for their style. 

ModCloth's Layered Winter
Undershirt - ModCloth | T-shirt - ModCloth | Cardigan - ModCloth | Overalls - Choies | Necklace - Piperlime | Hat - Rag and Bone | Sunglasses - Stella McCartney | Boots - Jimmy Choo


To create this set I counted on ModCloth for the three basic layering pieces: the undershirt, the top and the cardigan! The undershirt peeks through the top giving a sexy look and they both look awesome because their cleavage's in "V" (trust me girls, "V" necks are the way to go). On top of that, one of the main trends of this winter: overalls, I think they look so cool. To keep all the things warm: a plaid cardigan, I choose this one because it looks so classy and chic, I wouldn't mind having my own. To give a little bit of sexyness, I added over the knee boots. As far as accessories, black and gold, everything simple and sleek.

Afternoon at Theo's Bazar Café

Opened just a few weeks ago, this café is drawing the attentions of everybody, both tourists and residents. Located in a central area, this café is getting known by its fabulous decoration, nice staff and delicious coffee drinks, hot chocolates and desserts. Last friday, I went there with two of my friends to meet the place and taste the amazing coffee drinks everybody's been talking. I order a Bon-bon Coffee and my friends ordered a Latte Machiatto flavored with cookie crisp and a Petit Gateau. Everything tasted amazing and looked so pretty.

Aberto há apenas algumas semanas, este café está a atrair as atenções quer de turistas, quer de locais. Localizado no centro, este café é conhecido pela sua decoração fabulosa, staff simpático e bebidas de café deliciosas, chocolate quente e sobremesas. Na última sexta-feira, fui lá com duas das minhas amigas para conhecer o sítio e provar as maravilhosas bebidos que todos têm estado a falar. Eu pedi um café Bombom e as minhas amigas pediram um Latte Machiatto aromatizado e um Petit Gateau. Tudo sabia deliciosamente bem e tinha um ar tão bonito.
