You know about those crazy busy days when all you do is run errands and attend everyone’s needs except your own? These are the days when we most need a little hint of colour in our lives. But with barely … Continue reading
É sempre tempo de celebrar, basta querer. Para quem não apreciar as festanças e máscaras de Carnaval também pode optar por celebrar o Ano Novo. Falta pouco para o inicio do novo ano lunar, por isso nas vésperas de celebrar o novo ano Chinês, vamos dar as boas vindas ao ano da Cobra.
É hora de abandonar o que já não serve, deixar para trás o que não interessa. Começar de novo se for necessário.
Anytime is a good time to celebrate. We don’t need a specific reason other than thde desire to have a good time.
If you’re in a mood for celebrations and don’t appreciate Carnivals, go out and celebrate the New Chinese Year. It’s time to welcome the year of the Snake. This year will be about shedding: shedding adversity and all the old stuff that no longer serves you.
Start the new year with a renewed sense of purpose! Happy new year!(source: image by Bartabac; items by Asos; Topshop; Net-a-porter)
This month on the new stands, the dichotomy between red and white, marking the first signs of Spring.
See previous month here.
Close family members and a few of my closest friends are attending and we’re expecting a full house tomorrow night. Everything is set and ready but it will take a few hours of work to get things done in time for dinner. The good thing is that this kind of events with my family are always quite informal and people join in to really spend some quality time with each other. Everybody pitches in to help out a little bit and is always great fun. That’s why this is my fav holiday. No Grinches allowed in this circle!
Anyway, since it is a holiday, there is always a tendency to dress up a little bit more… But I won’t need nothing too fancy (after all, will be spending the entire evening at home).
My choices for the outfit will be a grey knit dress from Blanco, paired with some dark tights and ballerinas, a necklace and a red lip to keep it festive. Nice and comfortable. I’ll just let the whole “dress up” ritual to the New Year’s party.

My inspiration for the day is the red trend photographed by Naomi Yang for Vogue Mexico (December 2010) in editorial starring Inguna Butane.
Styling is by Shino Itoi from the likes of Givenchy, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Celine, etc.
