This spring the designers have been inspired by the East.
Kimonos, thick silk and wide obi-like belts. It is obvious that designers turned their heads towards the East while searching for inspiration for this season's collections. At Missoni the dresse's arms were like kimonos and wide belts were to see around the waist. Marc Jacobs has made cute tops with butterflypattern with scarves fastened around the waist, while Dolce & Gabbana has combined blouses looking like pajamas with patterned skirt. Do not put more than one elemet of the oriental trend to your outfit. Be aware of not crossing the line.

Uptown vs. downtown

Uptown 80s: Dress for success in 80s-inspired power suits

For a more grown-up take on 80s style, the flipside og the bodycorn trend, this look is all about structure pieces - see Stella McCartney's mannish jacke - and strong shapes (yes, big shoulders are back) for a modern twist on power dressing.

Downtown 80s: Material girls mix acid-wash denim with retro brights

It's been called 'the decade that style forgot', but that didn't stop designers from drawing heavily from the 80s for inspiration this season. Bleached and ripped denim, black Lycra, off-the-shoulders tops and block brights will all ensure your wardrobe is on-trend for spring/summer.

Hey guys!

The spring is finally on its way, and everybody knows what that means! New season, new wardrobe. Oh yeas girls, you know the word - SHOPPING! Just one problem, how do you shop with your perfect-looking bestfriend? I bet everybody has a friend whith a body-figure like a modell and has the "thrown-directly-out-of-a-bikini-commercial" - look. Then there's the question: how to shop with with the friend that make you feel like Lily Allen next to Blake Lively?

Some tips:

  • Even if her body is to die for, you have to appriciate your own beauty. Dress up in some clothes you know looks great on you. Ask your friend to help picking out an outfit. Then you're guaranteed to look great!

  • If you have different body shapes, don't try on the same stuff. Find something that looks nice on you and fits your kind of figure.

  • You have to realise that you're not in competition with anyone! The sooner you understand, the less you'll compare yourself to others

  • You're not the only one with a superhot bestfriend. We all look in the mirror and see something we want to "fix" or "switch"

  • You're not out shopping to feel bad about yourself! Have fun and focus on your friendship (and ofcourse buy really cool clothes!)

Hope you have a great time shopping ! Every shopping-day is a happy-day !

Cheers *S and eM

Dakota Johnson for Mango

We often see kids of celebs in ad campaigns, and that is the case for the new face of Mango Jeans’ spring collection. The daughter of the well known actors, Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, the nineteen years old Dakota Johnson has already been on the cover of Vogue. At the same time as being a model, she works hard to become an actress as well. Someone just get it all.
