Shiny purple!

Dear readers,

I thought these trousers by Supertrash were so stunning that I wanted to create an outfit with them. I think the colour purple lends itself very well for making combinations with other poppy colours, like orange.

What do you think of the outfit?

Love, Melissa

February's 2012 Top Finds @ Fashiolista

Dear readers,

So, today is the final day of the month, so that brings my monthly topic back and this month the following three items picked by me were the most popular ones as voted by Fashiolista members.

Which is your favourite?

Black sheer blouse by Mango ($CrossSellProductPage$
Gold tone watch ($CrossSellProductPage$
Blue marine bikini top (

My vote goes to the gold tone watch, I love that it is so plain, easy to combine with lots of stuff, while still capturing someone's attention!

Give love away!

Dear readers,

Quotes keep inspiring me, I hope the ones I post here once in a while inspire you too.
Today, I read the lovely quote, or actually poem, below:

"A bell is no bell 'til you ring it,

A song is no song 'til you sing it,

And love in your heart

Wasn't put there to stay -

Love isn't love

'Til you give it away."
So cute, huh? I can actually sing it out loud...sounds pretty good to me haha! But it is not just cute, it is a truth which you and me and every one of us human beings should really act upon, so for today I say: GIVE YOUR LOVE AWAY AND BRIGHTEN SOMEONE ELSE'S DAY! Hey, I can rhyme too :)
Love, Melissa

The colour of love!

Dear readers,

Red, also known as the colour of love, is - in my opinion - a very strong and feminine color! I love to wear red, but I sometimes find it popping too much...know that feeling?! Anyhow, I know red is going to be a really trending colour these coming seasons, so I'd better prepare, right? :) I made a list of some favourite red items, I hope you like it! Check it out!

Knotted tee with animal print (

Of course, there are many more red must-have items on my list, but the items as listed above are definitely ones I need to check off that list.

What do you think of the colour red? Is it something you see yourself wearing? If so, would you wear a red statement item, like a jacket, a dress or maybe even trousers or would you just accessorize some red items, like a cuff, a necklace or a bag?!

I am thinking about going all the way :)

Love, Melissa

On the run!

Dear readers,

The March issue of Vogue Paris features an editorial of model Karlie Kloss and what a different editorial it is. Karlie Kloss poses in a sporty kind of way in designs by Max Mara, Rick Owens, Mulberry and Chanel. The photos are shot by Hans Feurer and I think he did a fantastic job. Have a look at some of the photos of this editorial!

How different and fabulous, right? I really dig this editorial, because I find it so out-of-the-box. I can really appreciate that. What do you think? And what do you think of model Karlie Kloss? I think she will become a very big name in the fashion industry, because she has such a strong pose, strong body and face and because I think she is the type of model whom can be used for a broad range of modelling work.

Which shot is your favourite? Mine is # 2!

Love, Melissa

New York Fashion Week 2012: Custo Barcelona

Dear readers,

I had actually never heard of the designer brand Custo Barcelona, but after seeing their collection at NYFW 2012 I will never ever forget this name. I love how they played with ethnic prints and fabrics and I think it turned out AMAZING! What do you think of Custo Barcelona? Take a look!

I can definitely see myself wearing these clothes! The shoes however, not so much.

Your opinion?

Love, Melissa

Grammy's 2012 - Red Carpet Looks

Dear readers,

On February 12, 2012 the 54th Grammy's were held at the Los Angeles Staples Center. As we all know, Adele was the BIG winner. She flew home with 6 (!) Grammy's...WOW!!! She deserves it! I am REALLY a big fan of her! But of course, as always, I am really curious as to the red carpet looks people chose.

This year, these were my favourites:

Paris Hilton

Kate Beckinsale

Kelly Rowland

Carrie Underwood

Kelly Osbourne

Alicia Keys

Taylor Swift

My favourite look of the 7 featured above is, without a doubt, Taylor Swift. I cannot get over how fabulous that dress is...SO elegant, SO parisien!

Which one is your favourite?

Love, Melissa
