I’m a 90s girl! (well, I was born in that decade ;D) To be honest, when I see the current fashion and trends in magazines, stores and other social medium, I don’t recall seeing it when I was younger. Perhaps I was too young to remember or be observant to the least. Right now, I am loving the 90s trend such as the “mom jeans”, crop tops, daisy prints, maxi or midi dresses and skirts and so much more. I’ve been watching the original, Beverly Hills 90210 to get inspiration on how people dressed back in the days in comparison to today’s fashion. I didn’t realize that people do show off their bellies in the 90s and is accepted by the society. I thought it would still be conservative as in the previous decades.
A few weeks ago, I had an amazing opportunity to work with Albachiara Guindani, designer of Les Pendentifs from albachiaraguindani.com. Les Pendentifs is the brand new line of accessories by Albachiara Guindani, an emerging Italian fashion designer. Les Pendentifs are available in ten different colours with a lot of natural stone charms. You can create your personal Pendentif style combining your preferred colour with the charms you like most and match it with your outfit.
Scarf season is finally here! I collaborated with the company, SummerTies, in celebrating this season. They specialize more with summery themed scarves but the pattern is still fall appropriate depending on how you style them. Scarves to me can be a challenge because I tend to find ways to change up how I wear them. Scarves has multipurpose and I’m sure if you google it you’ll find a million ways on how to use it.
Every now and then, bits of style from a long gone era reappear in contemporary fashion. Distinctive details that echo previous designs emerge in various reinvented cuts. In this blog, we pay homage to the influential 1970’s, when men weren’t cool enough if they didn’t have their bell bottoms on! Every self-confessed fashionista should have good knowledge on past fashion trends – after all, everything modern and genuine always carry with them a part of the past.
For the past few weeks, I’ve been working with the lovely Vanessa, founder of Conkissta. Conkissta specializes in one-of-a-kind hand woven Mochilas (first recognized in Columbia). Their passion to create unique pieces definitely shows with the precise detailing of their designs. I’ve asked Vanessa some questions — personal or business — that may intrigue your interest.
Even the most stylish fresh graduate will have qualms during her first fashion interview! Just like in any other job interview, the job seeker’s desire to make an impression is almost palpable. Your potential employer actually expects this mindset but unless you are fully prepared to blow the interviewing Senior Editor’s mind away, leaving a lasting impression can be quite tough. In other words, an interviewer who’s been through hundreds of job applicants over the years will be rather hard to impress.
