I’m addicted to style on Instagram. It provides me with a quick and unending source of inspiration for my personal fashion.

My latest discovered treasure is the profile of Karen Blanchard. She combines her London roots with NYC sensibilities to create an awesome street style. I just started following her on Instagram and, if you like urban fashion, you should follow her too.

I especially like that she’s from the UK. I think this gives her an extra bit of flavor, as well as a unique perspective on fashion. On her website, Karen explains that she started blogging because she was often asked, “Where did you get that”? Thankfully, this led to us being able to enjoy her unique style.

I love fall. It is an excuse to get a new coat and stretch out the leisurly summer mood for another month or so. It is also time for me to invest in a new fall coat. For the past two years, I have committed to acquiring closet stapples. So far, I was lucky to find a perfectly fitting black leather vest, two classic trench coats and an immaculate jeans jacket.

After seing some of my most handsome friends sport peacoats, I decided to invest in one.

I was happy to purchase the one from Asos which fits perfectly. Many brands have a version of these coats, so look around. Below are my personal favorite fall jackets for women.

Although they have a common general fit, all the coats differ in the way they will hang on your frame. Because I am quite petite and of small build, I selected one that was cut shorter than the average (Asos). If you like this style, it will serve you well. You will be able to wear it easily into the month of December. Make sure to give it a try.

7 End of Summer Fragrances For Her https://geekchicdaily.com/7-end-of-summer-fragnances/ https://geekchicdaily.com/7-end-of-summer-fragnances/#respond Wed, 09 Aug 2017 00:00:28 +0000 http://geekchicdaily.com/?p=756 7 End of Summer Fragrances For Her

The post 7 End of Summer Fragrances For Her appeared first on Geek Chic Daily.

7 End of Summer Fragnances - Polyvore - PinterestThe fall is upon us, but summer is still here and I intend to savor every single moment! I am sure you are with me. One of things I enjoy the most, about this time, is wearing a light end of summer fragrance.
After  the initial rush of July, the barbecues, the endless nights, the run to the beach, we are probably ready for a more romantic mood.
These are the days when my activities slow down to a gentle and leisurely pace.  For me, the end of the summer is both poetic and dreamlike.
I am not the only one. Pretty much all my friends are glowing from within. As we meet for the evening chat after work, I can see relaxed tanned shoulders peeking from a sun dress. Hair is still out, toes are still painted a bright vibrant shade. A cloud of indiscernible feminine flowery scent hangs over our bodies. The end of summer is a magical time when all is still possible.
In celebration of this special time, I went out to try some fragrances to accompany this end-of-summer mood.  I am guessing I have lifted a few heads from my group of lovely friends, but I also made new discoveries along the way.
All of the fragnances are light and feminine. Most feature citrus and floral notes with a touch of freshness.  I hope you will enjoy the selection and perhaps have a chance to try some of them for yourself.

 7 End of Summer Fragrances

End of Summer Dream

 

Kenzo Summer Fragnance

Flower by Kenzo

$84 (1.7 oz)  – 107 (3.4 oz)

I wore this fragrance throughout my college years. It has a light powdery floral scent of Bulgarian rose that is made modern by the addition of amber and cassia bark.

This bottle was just released in Europe and should soon make it to US department stores.

Notes: Hawthorn, Bulgarian rose, violet, cassia bark, amber, musk, opopanax, vanilla, almond, cyclosal, hedione.

Summer Fragnance

Eau so Fresh by Marc Jacobs

$92 (2.5 oz) -102 (4.2 oz)

This bottle was a gift from a friend. I must say that I am just as exited by the packaging as its content. The larger versions are even more beautiful.

Eau so Fresh is a slightly updated version of Marc Jacobs iconic perfume Daisy.

The notes in this scent suggest a younger more youthful mood. This is partly due to the addition of natural rasberry as one of the top notes with plum in the background.

Notes: Natural raspberry, grapefruit, pear, violet, wild rose, apple blossom, musk, cedarwood, plum.

Summer Fragnance

Flowerbomb by Victor & Rolf

$50 (.68 oz) – $115 (1.7 oz) – 165 (3.4 oz)

As its name suggests, this perfum is a flower infused scent that will bombard your senses with happy waves.

It is a luxurious deep perfume but the notes it contains ensure it stays pleasant.

A little goes a very long way.

Notes: bergamot, tea, freesia, jasmine, orange blossom, orchid, rose, patchouli

Summer Fragnance

Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet’ by Dior

$77 ( 1.7 oz)  – $98 (3.4)

This dainty bottle encloses a wonderfully uplifting feminine scent. This version of Miss Dior, as its name suggests, is an opulent bouquet of luxurious flowers.

A little goes a very long way.

Notes: Neroli, Bulgarian Rose, Patchouli.

Summer Fragnance

La Petite Robe Noire Eau Fraiche by Guerlain

$60 (1 oz) – $75 (1.7 oz)

This version of Guerlain’s wonderful La Petite Robe Noir is designed to be a light and modern fragnance bursting with energy and elegance.

The citrus notes married to the green background make this eau de toilette very wearable.  Be warned, it could also be slightly addictive!

Notes:
Mandarin, Bergamot, Lemon, Green notes.

Summer Fragnance

Chance Eau Vive by Chanel

$ 77 (1.7 oz) – $97 (3.4 oz)

Eau Vive is another modern, light, energy filled fragrance. This version of the very successful, Chance, is infused with citrus notes highlighted by tender jasmine and iris.

The slight cedar notes underlines the scent ever so lightly.

Notes: Grapefruit, blood orange, jasmine, cedar, iris.

Summer Fragnance

Infusion d’Iris by Prada

$ 86 (1.7 oz) – $ 114 (3.4 oz)

Sun and sea infuse this beautiful perfume.

It is a modern eau de toilette that embodies the spirit of summer.  As its name suggests, a high note of Iris dominates the ingredients.

 

Notes: Iris, cedar, violet, lilly of the valley

 

This is a magical time, everything is still possible. I hope you try one of these perfumes and see what magic they could bring.

Like most urbanites, I carry most of my gear in a backpack.

I am privileged to live in a city where I am able to travel by foot and/or use the transit system.  I usually pack all my sustenance needs for a day’s worth of urban exploration. This includes food, water, laptop, cell phone, a real notebook and pen, and various grooming items.  To say the least, the most important item in my gear list is my trusty backpack, without which, well, I would not be able to independently go about my day.

From time to time, I will carry a proper lady purse, mostly to make my mother happy and also to attempt to impress an aura of elegance on various dates and other love interests (I quickly get bored with this but this is a whole other subject and article).

Because I have to meet vendors, clients and other business contacts, it is important for me to carry something that is elegant, sturdy and comfortable.  I am guessing this is the case for a lot women out there.

Here is what I look for when I select a new backpack and laptop bag:

  • Comfort

My bag can way anywhere from 5 to 7 kg, over the course of the day, this can get heavy. To avoid walking hutched over and of course, avoid unnecessary strain on my back, I like the backpack to fit snuggly across my back. Padding on shoulder straps and back ensures the weight is evenly distributed and comfortable to bear.  Wide straps and ergonomic shape is also important. Finally, because I have a small frame, it is very important that the backpack has a compact design.

  • Overall ergonomic design

I look for a backpack that is adapted to my frame and body structure.  Backpack and laptop bags can vary in size. Targus makes large models adapted to a bigger body frame. Other companies such as Samsonite specialize in compact models. I have my favorites but when I consider a new model for purchase, I always pay attention to the ergonomic design component.

  • Style

I like my backpacks to be elegant. This means a color I can seamlessly pair with various outfits. I like a uniform shade with a splash of color (interior, zipper or other accents). For the overall shape, I am particularly attracted to modern and futuristic designs that are innovative and forward looking.  I have two backpacks for work, and they are both black. For lighter days and weekends, I carry one of two  Jansport single compartment backpacks in neon pink and deep khaki color.

  • Functionality

Functionality is also very important, of course. I want all my gear to fit comfortably in separate custom designed compartment. I also like to know that it will be safe from damage so proper padding and proper fit is important. I am sold on extra pockets and compartments.

Sorel Booties I went out today to try and find a new pair of booties to reinforce my preexisting and growing collection. Yes, it seems we will be wearing booties for one more season. I am kind of happy with this prospect, and I secretely pray this clever innovation will stay with us for many years to come.
In the end, I came back with lots of ideas and the resolution that this year I will invest in an upscale pair or one that is inspired (uhmm) by it.
I think designers are secretely enjoying this! I know I am. From Stella McCartney now iconic tailored, white soled wedges to Balenciaga front laced swead treasures, ankle boots are tailored, innovative, highly wearable and most of all, elegant.
Here is a small selection to inspire your shopping this fall.

The “glitz and glam” of New York Fashion Week 2015 gave us a peak of what trends are coming up for spring and summer 2016. Hundreds of glamorous runway shows, on New York catwalks, displayed a myriad of delicate details, beautiful ruffles, flowy gowns, vibrant colors, swinging fringes, and shimmery textures.

With so many creative looks displayed throughout the eight day fashion week, it could be difficult to get a feel for which trends are going to be the most popular next season. So here is a quick recap of five fashion trends that we’ve identified for next spring. And be sure to check out GeekChicDaily’s similar budget friendly item suggestions…for those of us who can’t quite afford the designer price tags ;)!

1. Crochets & Bohemian Chic: Top designers like Tommy Hilfiger, Custo Barcelona, and BCBG Max Azria are incorporating crochets and Boho-Chic patterns to create a mix of beach-inspired, reggae-colored, and South of the Border styles. These relaxed looks definitely lend themselves to easy…breezy days in the sun for your next spring or summer vacation.

BohoChic3

2. Can you Dig It:  The 70’s are still raging. Continuing from fall 2015, designers like Dion Lee, Diane von Furstenberg, Anna-Sui, Rodarte, Alice and Olivia created ensembles reminiscent of the all-so-hype 70’s disco era, by incorporating suede fabrics, bright ‘paisleyish’ designs, oversized flared sleeves, funky-colored scarves, psychedelic prints, and thigh high lace up boots. Even those bell bottom pants – you swore you’d never wear again – are back!

That70s Part3

3. Fringes: Models were swinging fringes in all colors, textures, and length on the catwalk. Some may feel like it might have been an overload of fringes but what women doesn’t like shaking fringes from time to time. Designers like Lela Rose, Supima Design Comoetition, Serena Williams, Christian Siriano, Prabal Gurung, and Dion Lee created fun movement and elegantly incorporated a “girly factor” by adding fringes to their collection. It’s going to be so much fun to swing those fringes next spring!

Fringe3

4. Bare Shoulders: The bare shoulder trend was sprinkled throughout the Givenchy spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection. Dramatic, browless models graced the runway with flowy, satin-like, ensembles that delicately exposed the models’ shoulders. Another designer that followed suit with the bare shoulder trend and what seems to be a bedroom-themed collection is Calvin Klein – looks like you may very well be able to leave the house with your sleep satin gown or kimono next spring!

BareShoulders

5. High-slit dresses and skirts: Designers like Badgley Mischka, Altuzarra, Michael Costello, showcased high-slits on long dresses, as well as, a-line skirts. The thigh-high slits, exposed the models’ sexy long legs, as they walked down the runway. The iconic high-slit, with one leg out, is a sexy yet subtle and sophisticated look. We should all consider having one or two high-slit dresses or skirts in our arsenal ;).  It will surely turn heads at your next cocktail party or soirée.

Would you be up for wearing the facial accessories from the Givenchy collection on your next outing?

The queen turns 57 today and Givenchy has posted three beautiful looks especially designed for her majesty by the house star designer Riccardo Tisci.

Madonna turns 57
@givenchyofficial

At the 2012 Super Bowl, Madonna and her dancers wore roman inspired costumes featuring sexy thigh high boots, molded leather chest tuniques and golden armors.

 Tisci also designed this poetic set for her “Sticky and Sweet” world tour.

 

 

 

 

 

The outfits featured satin, soft sheers and multicolored satin ribbons.

Despite a few haters, most instagrammers loved all her looks. For me, the one that grabbed me the most was  her neo-80’s Madonna ensemble she wore at the Met Gala. I mean, how on earth do you come up with these combination. Ok, albeit the cross hanging from her waist dangerousely placed near sensitive areas (at a gala where she probably sat a lot), everything else is right on point. From the double fishnet tights, to the studded belt, the leather gloves and of course the gorgeous pink suede shoes. Oh right, don’t forget the wig!

OK, it’s announced. Starting on September 4th we can all run to our local drug store and buy Covergirl’s limited-edition x Star collection.

Covergirl

Ahead of the much awaited newest installment in the Star Wars saga, The Force Awakens, out this coming December, Covergirl has designed a futuristic makeup line including a set of 6 shades of lipsticks, 2 mascaras and 3 nail polish colors.

The 6 metallic colored lipsticks go from a dark mauve to light rosy pink. They are moderately priced from $5.99 to $7.99. The packaging is superb. Each lipstick comes in a black casing with the star wars logo prominently featured on its side.  We will definitely feel that the force is with us when we whip out this little jewel.

 

Also included in the collection are two mascaras, a dark side and a light side. The mascara casings are adorned with a quotation. Depending on your choice, the dark side or the light side, you have a choice of five quotes. There is  a total of 10 different quotations. The mascaras are priced from  $5.99-7.49. Needless to say that there is a high likelihood we will be getting all 10.

Quotes on the mascara tubes are:

 

1/10: “May the force be with you:

2/10 “Do. Or do not. There is no try.”

3/10 “You’re my only hope.”

 4/10 “I feel the good in you.”

5/10 “Luminous beings are we.”

6/10  “I will finish what you started.”

7/10  “There has been an awakening.”

8/10  “Indeed you are powerful.”

9/10 “You will meet your destiny.”

10/10 “Immune to the light.”

 

 

A small but powerful a trio of nail polish colors in a light grey, brilliant red and dark aubergine shade is also included in the collection.  They are priced fro $4.99 – 6.99.

Covergirls creative design director, makeup artist Pat McGrath created a series of six looks using the collection. We have to say that we are totally in love with this one below featuring a golden droid. Other looks include a silver white theme featuring dark eyes and deep red lips.
