Isabel Marant X H&M

The collaboration between Isabel Marant and H&M is one the most anticipated since the brand started these special designer collections. Since Isabel’s hyped wedge sneakers, the designer is one too keep an eye on if you’re looking for something cool – and this collection is exactly that! Coolness overload with those amazing prints, leather and layers.
I don’t know if I’ll be able to put my hands on something (usually everything disappears as soon as the  store opens), but so far, I’m really liking the jackets and oversized knits. Any favorite pieces yet? Continue reading

Grunge is the new chic

This is an illustration I made for the look I created for a contest – I’ll have pictures of the real mannequin coming up soon! Stay tunned ;)

Hello guys! Another post sharing my fall expectations – honestly, can’t wait for the chilly days and cozy sweaters!
This is a collage I made for a contest, in which I made up to the final five! I’m glad the judges liked my choices for the next season, and hopefully you do too :)

Olá a todos! Mais um post com as minhas expectativas para a próxima estação – mal posso esperar que chegue o frio para começar a usar roupas aconchegantes!
Desta vez trago-vos uma colagem que fiz para o concurso do movimento Por um Portugal Mais Fashion, que ficou entre as 5 finalistas! Fiquei super contente porque vou ter a oportunidade de criar um look em conjunto com os fashion advisors do Cascaishopping para o evento In Fashion, que decorrerá 27 de setembro a 6 de outubro. O júri gostou do conjunto, falta agora saber a vossa opinião!plaid shirt, tartan shirt, primark, c&a, fall trend, fashion blogger, lisbon fashion blogger,

And these are my first two tartan shirts for this season! The first is a flannel one, from Primark, and the second is in a lighter cotton fabric, and has some studs on the pockets, from C&A. Love the colors and how the hardwear matches them! What about you?

E estas são as minhas novas aquisições para o outono, duas camisas em padrão tartan. A primeira é em flanela, da Primark, e a segunda é um pouco mais leve, da C&A. Gosto imenso das cores e dos pormenores metálicos, e vocês, também pensam em aderir a esta tendência?plaid shirt, tartan shirt, primark, c&a, fall trend, fashion blogger, lisbon fashion blogger,

Look du Jour: sweet camouflage

This was the first time I wore this jacket, although you may have seen it here on the blog before on my FNO Lisbon outfit. I’m really glad I bought it, a camo print will work perfectly as a fall staple, and still manage to incorporate it on my last summer looks. In this case, I loved the combination between the rough pattern/texture with the rose gold shades, creating delicacy with an edge.

Esta foi a primeira vez que usei este casaco, apesar de já o ter mostrado no post do FNO Lisboa. Foi mesmo uma boa compra, sei que vai ser um favorito do outono, mas mesmo assim ainda o consegui conjugar em diferentes looks nos últimos dias de verão. Neste caso, combinei-o com um vestido delicado e com folhos nos ombros  (que já não vestia há imenso tempo!), e gostei imenso de ver a combinação das diferentes texturas. Um bom equilíbrio entre o delicado e o arrojado.nude dress hm, concious collection, camo jacket, springfield jacket, stradivarius leather sandals, rose gold bag nude dress hm, concious collection, camo jacket, springfield jacket, stradivarius leather sandals, rose gold bag Continue reading
