The Primark shoes everybody is going crazy for, and they’re not even on sale

Dreams do come true. Say hello to ‘Minnie Mouse’ heels – and yes, they are gold, sparkly, and scream holiday party.

Just when we thought that Primark couldn’t get any more things right after the whole Chip mug, Beauty and the Beast homeware range and Harry Potter Christmas accessories lines, they go and nail party dressing for the festive season.

The shoes do bear a striking resemblance to £430 pair by Oscar Tiye, whose golden stilettos form part of the Italian designer’s spring/summer 2017 collection. Obviously, Primark’s version will be much more affordable. Coming in both gold and black styles (and at just £14 a pair), the shoes will undoubtedly be one of the most popular bargain buys come the Christmas party season.

These dazzling heels will start retailing in November. Unfortunately, Primark does not currently offer online shopping, so you might need to schedule a trip to the store for some holiday shopping.

Here they are looking fire:

Portuguese Version:

Os sonhos tornam-se realidade. Digam olá aos sapatos de salto alto ‘Minnie Mouse’ – e sim, são dourados, brilhantes e gritam festa.

Quando achamos que a Primark já não nos consegue surpreender com mais nada, depois da linha de acessórios da Bela e do Monstro e do Harry Potter, ela aparece e arrasa com os sapatos certos para a temporada de festas que se avizinha.

Os sapatos têm uma semelhança impressionante com os de Oscar Tiye que custam £ 430, e que fazem parte da coleção primavera / verão 2017 do designer italiano. Obviamente, a versão da Primark irá será ser bem mais acessível. Irão estar disponíveis em dourado e preto (e apenas £ 14), serão sem dúvida, uma das compras de natal mais populares e mais em conta desta temporada.

Estes saltos altos deslumbrantes começarão a ser vendidos em Novembro. Infelizmente, a Primark actualmente não oferece compras online, por isso terás que agendar uma visita à loja para as compras de Natal.

Aqui estão eles lindos e deslumbrantes:

Zara’s next collection is revolutionary

We know you guys don’t need another reason to love Zara, but behold, we have one anyway. “Shape the Invisible”, it’s Zara latest project, according to it’s website and Instagram.  The retailer explains: “With recycling as the initial idea, Zara gave the schools” — which include The Royal Academy of Antwerp, Parsons School in New York, EnsAD in Paris, and Kingston University in London — “clothing from previous seasons, with which the students then created new garments adding their own design and vision.” According to this, it doesn’t seem like these pieces will be available for purchase – bummer! but we can’t deny it’s nice to see Zara working with aspiring designers on an initiative that promotes sustainability in fashion. Stay tuned as we learn more—in the meantime, click here to see some of the edgy pieces from the collaboration. Have you ever thought that soon you might be wearing a future Alexander McQueen? 😉

Nós sabemos que não precisam de mais outro motivo para gostarem da Zara, mas seja como for nós temos mais um. “Shape the Invisible”, é o último projecto da Zara, de acordo com o site e a conta de Instagram. Como a Zara explica: “Com a reciclagem como ideia inicial, a Zara deu às escolas” – que incluem The Royal Academy of Anvers, Parsons School em Nova York, Ensad em Paris e Kingston University em Londres – “roupas de anteriores temporadas, com as quais os alunos criaram novas peças de roupa criando o seu próprio design e visão “. Pelo que parece, estas peças não estarão disponíveis para compra – mas que balde de água fria! No entanto não podemos negar que é bom ver a Zara a trabalhar com futuros designers numa iniciativa que promove a sustentabilidade na moda. Fiquem atentos enquanto tentamos saber mais coisas – e entretanto, cliquem aqui para ver algumas das peças desta colaboração. Já pensaram que dentro em breve podem estar a vestir um futuro Alexander McQueen? 😉

 

Let’s join the Body Shop and together make a difference in the world

bodyshop 1SIGN THE PETITION

As you know our team loves The Body Shop and their commitment to transform the world in a better place.

That’ s why this month we will join The Body Shop in their campaign against animal testing.

Over the last three decades, Body Shop worked with their campaign partner Cruelty Free International and their collective efforts helped lead to a European Union ban in 2013. But that isn’t enough. 80% of countries still allow animal testing. Incredible right?

Animals continue to be used in testing, and that is why Body Shop needs your help to end this practice everywhere and forever.

So if you want to make a difference in this world you can start today and join us in this campaign. You just have to sign this petition here, and you can also share a picture with bunny ears (it´s hard to imagine but rabbits are the animals more used in the cosmetic industry), or with your lovely pet, in your Instagram account like many celebrities are doing to help Body Shop get 8 million signatures to present the UN General Assembly in 2018, using #FOREVERAGAINSTANIMALTESTING #THEBODYSHOPPT.

We count on you! Have a nice weekend!

ASSINA A PETIÇÃO

Como sabes nós adoramos a Body Shop e seu compromisso de transformar o mundo num lugar melhor.

Por isso este mês nos juntámos à Body Shop na sua campanha contra testes em animais.

Durante as últimas três décadas, a Body Shop trabalhou em parceria com  Cruelty Free International e seus esforços colectivos ajudaram a levar a uma proibição da União Europeia em 2013. Mas isto não foi suficiente. 80% dos países ainda permitem testes em animais. Incrível, não acham?

Os animais continuam a ser utilizados em testes, e é por isso que a Body Shop precisa de tua ajuda para acabar de uma vez por todas com esta prática tão cruel.

Por isso se queres fazer a diferença neste mundo, podes começar hoje  juntando-te a nós nesta campanha. Só tens que assinar esta petição aqui, e também podes partilhar uma foto com orelhas de coelho (é difícil imaginar, mas os coelhos são os animais mais usados ??na indústria de cosméticos), ou com o teu animal de estimação, na tua conta de Instagram, como muitas celebridades já estão a fazer para ajudar a Body Shop a obter 8 milhões de assinaturas para apresentar à Assembleia Geral da ONU em 2018, usando #FOREVERAGAINSTANIMIMTENTANDO #THEBODYSHOPPT.

Contamos contigo! Bom Fim de semana para todos!

Burberry’s new campaign is a whole lot more than an advert

We can´t stop watching over and over againThe tale of Thomas Burberry”!

This amazing video Directed by Asif Kapadia, who won an Oscar for his documentary Amy last year and Matt Charman, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Bridge of Spies, who wrote the script, has the scope and scale of a blockbuster movie trailer, but is just a campaign  (or The Campaign) to celebrate the brand’s 160th anniversary. Don´t expect more then three incredible minutes,  after all this is just Burberry´s campaign, but we can guarantee you that after this amazing trailer you will want to see the movie 😉

This cinematic take on the life of Thomas Burberry, the company’s founder, features an all-star cast including Star Wars actor Domhnall Gleeson as Thomas Burberry, Sienna Miller, who plays his fictional first love, Dominic West as the explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, who wore Burberry gabardine for three Antarctic expeditions, and Lily James who plays the pilot Kirby Green.

Taking key moments from Burberry’s history, the advert re-imagines events which have shaped the company’s values and key moments. These include the invention of gabardin, the waterproof fabric which is still used in all of Burberry’s trench coats and sponsoring the record-breaking flight from London to Cape Town by real life pilot Betty Kirby Green.

After watching the trailer you will definitely want to buy one of those beautifully made trench coat 😉

The Rolling Stones´music video that everyone is crazy about including Kristen Stewart

You have to see the new video from Rolling Stones’ first single in over a decade! Definitely worth the wait! The video is crazy cool and the music is so perfect and cool that is going to make you sing all week 😉

The Chanel´s muse Kristen Stewart, takes us on a wild ride in a vintage blue Mustang to the tune of the Stones’ cover of “Ride ‘Em on Down.” Stewart fits the rock star vibe in a distressed white crop-top that puts her tattoos on display and a pair of Levi’s high-waisted blue jeans. The badass look is  complete with a messy slicked back hair, round sunglasses, and a bright blue lollipop that matches her car.

Everything in the video looks profanity-free, Kristen´s face practically screams “fuck you,” and the video’s final shot is her giving the camera the middle finger without even making eye contact with it.

Most of the scenes seem random, but of course nothing was filmed by chance. If you watch the video carefully, you’ll see song lyrics and the iconic Rolling Stones tongue appear in the background. As Stewart powers through the streets of a deserted LA, incidentally, a random zebra appears. How strange and random is that?!?! 😉

The actress claimed she was sold on the concept almost immediately. “It didn’t take more than a few words to get me amped on the idea”

In the middle of the wild ride through deserted streets in downtown Los Angeles she stops along the way to smoke cigarettes and show off her sex appeal as she pole dances at a gas station. Caution: this part is extremely wild!

We can guarantee you that after watching this video you will only want to look fierce, free, badass and hot like Kristen, and of course you will want to hear the music over and over again 😉

The Princess´ wardrobe that everyone is crazy about

It’s official! Princess Kate Middleton is our new favorite Fashion Icon. With the royal visit to Canada, the lovely princess left us to sigh for her amazing wardrobe. And can anyone explain us how Princess Kate manage to land a transatlantic flight looking so poised, with two tiny children in tow?! Is she the chicest mother of the year or what? Some fashion watchers are suggesting she’s undergone something of a movie-star makeover, and we couldn’t agree more, she is looking more glamorous and sophisticate than ever before.

These are our favorite moments from Princess´ wardrobe tour:

The arrival was a wow moment, toting the two tots in a polished lapis Jenny Packham pencil dress with a matching fascinator with maple leaf accents and a maple leaf brooch as a tribute to the country that would play host the royal family over the next eight days.2016 Royal Tour To Canada Of The Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge - Victoria, British Columbia
The white Alexander McQueen dress with red embroidery, paired with red L.K. Bennett heels and a red Miu Miu box clutch. The pleated dress was modified from the original Resort 2017 collection, toning down the puffy sleeves, but keeping the shape of the dress.

Alexander McqueenAnother OMG! For the nigth our style icon slipped into a red off-the-shoulders Preen by Thornton Bregazzi pleated midi dress, her hair back in a chignon and again accessorized with her maple leaf brooch and her stunning pearl Soru earrings, and she was like a princess from our fairy tales.

Preen

The emerald green Dolce & Gabbana crepe midi dress, embellished with gold button details and a neck tie, with nude heels and a clutch by LK Bennett to accessorize, was as simple as sophisticate.

Here we fear for her. How is that even possible? For  a children’s party for Canadian military families, Princess Kate managed to keep her stunning white Chloé dress with Pointelle details clean the whole day. Please let us know your secret Princess Kate Middleton.

Even the final goodbye was perfect. The princess waved before boarding the plane in a pale pink princess coat by Catherine Walker, and matching LK Bennett pumps.

And of course her adorable children, always impeccably dressed and matching each other and always so cute and polite.

Princess Kate definitely as the style and the elegance needed to pull the looks like she does, but we have to give some credit to her  helper and trusted stylist, Natasha Archer, for the sleek, elegant and sophisticate and amazing moments that we saw in last days, don´t you agree? 😉

See why H&M´s new feminist campaign is totally badass

Everyone is going crazy about H&M most recent campaign. Gender norms and ideas of traditional beauty have been completely screwed over as women are empowered to be who they want to be.

The campaign is encouraging women to be fierce and independent and to break the social norms which surround them. The video features trans actress Hari Nef, as well as 72 year old Lauren Hutton, designer Pum Lefebure and model Adwoa Aboah, highlighting that a woman can be a lady whatever her shape, age, racial background, sexual identity or behaviour and taught that it’s OK not to shave our body to the core, it’s OK not to have the perfect stylised locks and it’s OK to not be 18-years-old and 98lbs and seven feet tall.

With Lion Babe giving her girl power spin on Tom Jones’ 1971 hit “She’s a Lady,” the ad, sees women doing it all including showing off fully-grown armpit hair, picking food out of their teeth with a fork and unzipping their jeans to enjoy some good French fries.

Here you can see the video that is kicking female stereotypes to the side:

We can´t get enough of Zara´s first sustainable Collection

Zara just gave us another reason to be obsessed with the brand! The trend power house just debuted its first sustainable collection entitled #JoinLife,  which according to its website, “embraces a woman who looks into a more sustainable future.” So what makes the clothes different? In a new editorial starring Sasha Pivovarova on the brand’s website, Zara explains that the line’s pieces are “made with materials such as organic cotton, recycled wool, and Tencel, which reduce our environmental impact.” The new collection is amazing! Is stylish, cool and expensive-looking, but with a similar price point to the usual offering. This sustainable collection is definitely a step in the right direction. With a collection that look this good,  Zara directs the attention toward being more eco-minded.

Bill Cunningham, the Legendary Fashion Photographer

“Fashion is the Armour to survive the reality of everyday life” by Bill Cunningham.

Last weekend we wake up with the sad news that the fashion industry and photography world has lost a legend, who inspired so many of us during so many years.

Before the internet and before the fashion bloggers, there was Bill Cunningham, the man that didn’t want to find fame, or even document fame, he just want to captured those who were influenced by fashion in a much more authentic way.

Bill first became known as a designer of women’s hats before moving on to writing about fashion for Women’s Wear Daily and the Chicago Tribune. He began taking photographs at both runway shows and on the the streets of New York City, and his work came to the attention of The New York Times with a 1978 capture of Greta Garbo in an unguarded moment, where he worked for nearly four decades. Cunningham later said he had not recognized her while photographing her nutria coat, he just thought “Look at the cut of that shoulder. It’s so beautiful. All I had noticed was the coat, and the shoulder.”

Cunningham spent nearly 40 years working as a fashion photographer for The New York Times. He became an integral and beloved part of the city’s fashion scene, where he  photographed people and the passing scene in the streets of Manhattan, focusing on clothing as personal expression,though of course, his influence on the industry extended far beyond New York.

“We all get dressed for Bill”, Anna Wintour said in the 2011 documentary Bill Cunningham New York.

He did not photograph people like paparazzi, preferring genuine personal style to celebrity. He once explained why he was not joining a group of photographers who swarmed around Catherine Deneuve: “But she isn’t wearing anything interesting”.

Bill-Cunningham-New-York-Times-Street-Style-Photographer-Dies-at-87-The-Dapifer-1

Immediately recognizable by his signature blue jacket, bicycle, and ever-present smile, he was credited as having a unique eye for emerging fashion, whether on the streets or at industry events.

“A lot of people have taste, but they don’t have the daring to be creative. Here we are in an age of cookie-cutter sameness. There are a few that are rarities—someone who doesn’t look like they were stamped out of ten million other people looking all the same.” Cunningham said in the documentary.

He was uninterested in those who showcased clothing they had not chosen themselves, which they modeled on the red carpet at celebrity events, instead Bill loved “the Kids” as he call them, “who wore their souls on sleeves he had never seen before, or in quite that way”.

IMG_1527

The French government awarded him a Legion d’Honneur for his work, while he was named a Living Landmark by the New York Landmarks Conservancy.

Designer Oscar de la Renta said: “More than anyone else in the city, he has the whole visual history of the last 40 or 50 years of New York. It’s the total scope of fashion in the life of New York.”

Bill made a career taking unexpected photographs of everyday people, socialites and fashion personalities, many of whom valued his company. According to David Rockefeller, Brooke Astor asked that Cunningham attend her 100th birthday party, the only member of the media invited.

“His company was sought after by the fashion world’s rich and powerful, yet he remained one of the kindest, most gentle and humble people I have ever met, says Times publisher Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr. We have lost a legend, and I am personally heartbroken to have lost a friend.”

Bill Cunningham will definitely be missed in the streets of the big apple.

 

This wedding was out of the box, and we love it!

#gioandoscar take over the Instagram, last weekend with the beyond epic wedding of Giovanna Battaglia and Swedish realtor Oscar Englebert.

Giovanna, one of the chicest women from fashion world, it was only to be expected that her wardrobe over the course of her multi-day wedding in Capri, Italy last week would involve multiple ensembles, each more gorgeous than the next. So for the lavish ceremony at the Punta Carena Lighthouse, were they tied the knot, with lots of confetti and a stunning sea view, Giovanna wore a deliciously extravagant, endless train-bedecked Alexander McQueen wedding dress. At the wedding reception the bride chose a cool and stylish Giambattista Valli dress and lacy Manolo Blahnik thigh-high boots. At her rehearsal dinner, the Battaglia donned a custom, delicately feathered Azzedine Alaia dress which she styled with crystal-embellished Aquazzura heels. And the last but not the least Giovanna chose for the night after her wedding aboard the ultimate party  tanker an ornately embellished Prada dress.

Gio and Oscar

It wasn’t just the bride’s wardrobe that resembled a “who’s who” of the fashion world, but her bridesmaids and guest list too. Natalie Massenet and Anna Dello Russo were among her five flower girls, while Sabine Getty, Lauren Santo Domingo, Hamish Bowles, Margherita Missoni, Beatrice Borromeo, Pierre Casiraghi, Lucilla Beccaria, Peter Dundas and Condé Nast’s chairman and chief executive of Condé Nast International, Jonathan Newhouse, were just a few of the well-known names in attendance. For one of the extravagant and glamours parties that seem a Hollywood movie, guests were dressed in neon-pink furs and insane head crowns, glitter, sequins, and boat shoes, and a lot of burlesque outfits and hula hoops. Clearly it was not a classic wedding, but we think it will be difficult that this year we would hear about another top celebration like #gioandoscar wedding, don´t you think? 😉
