Friday eye candy: Fashion now

The best thing that's happened to fashion is the fact that has never been more about personal style and expression.  Long gone are the days when style would label and stereotype people and designate them to specific social circles.  I think fashion has done what reasoning never did, establish the fact that fashion has played an active role in history and as such a consequence of history's many arbitrary actions and inequities.  Long gone are the days when Vogue magazine was only acquired and used by a privileged society leaving the people on the other end with no reference what so ever.  Boy times have changed, haven't they?  Now-a-days it's hard to distinguish and thank God, much less stereotype who is the one wearing the prints or the solids, the turban or the hot, the discrete or the revealing clothes, the ballerinas or the heels?  And I think it was clearly about time.  Have an excellent free-of-judgment weekend!

Kitchenettes

Technically a kitchenette is a very small kitchen running along a wall where strictly only the necessary equipments, cook top, microwave and a small fridge, are displayed.  They are usually found in small studios and people with style don't let the limited amount of space scare them off.  They know that style and good living has nothing to do with space as much as with choices they pick to make their small kitchen look stylish and equally functional.  Here are a few ideas to get you all fired up.  Enjoy!

Chanel shopping bag: Deauville tote


Funny name, Chanel canvas shopping tote from 2012.   I would assume that the kind of client for Deauville tote bag is the kind that has many other types of Chanel bags.  Certainly not someone we would find in the aisles of our local super market.  So I keep thinking what can possibly one shop with this bag?  Go cosmetic shopping at Bergdorf?  And you may be thinking the bag is from last year but Chanel never gets old, it's classic.  Enjoy!

White washed interiors

Who would I fool if I tell you that I love all white interiors?  I don't really admire an all-white space.  I'm not dead yet!  If you linger and take a deeper look into my blog, you'll know that I favor colors a lot!  To be precise colors that are not crazy-looking but colors that complement a harmonious palette.  I happen to like these rooms here because of the simple reason that they have the interesting complement of earth tones such as browns, grays, wood tones and some interesting details as metal touches.  Now that's a white room I can be in.  Enjoy!

Forever beautiful living rooms

If you are a blogger you should know that the worst way to make a blog post is via your iPhone. It's truly a nightmare.  My google account doesn't seem to want to work today.  I get the massage of trying to access an untrusted site, funny! Go figure!  Lucky for me I had in mind what I wanted to post about today, beautiful and inspiring living rooms.  I found the top living, designed by Bamo and I thought that room deserves a post, so without any more words please enjoy these stunning living rooms and have a great week.  Enjoy!
