Oscar de la Renta RTW Spring/Summer 2015

At any given Fashion week, with catwalks and numerous fabulous designs and designers, one of the thrills that can happen is when you love everything in particular look, piece of clothing or detail.

Oscar de la Renta's collection was a thrill to watch. Piece after piece, the designs were pretty and feminine throughout, with gingham thrown in with the lace pastels and the pinch of stripes thrown in.

Look 1: A great look to open with. It revealed enough about the collection to keep you wanting.

Even though the collection had a consistency throughout in fabrics and tones, the designs presented in this collection would provide something for everyone. In fact, in my head, I was spotting things and making mentals notes about outfits and clothes that could dress all four of the main female characters in Sex and the City, all to their personal style. For example, The second look in the two pictures above is definitely a Samatha Jones. The first in the two above those, a Charlotte York.

The above pieces were my favourite dresses in this show, and I'm almost positively certain that they will crop up on the red carpet soon enough. I find that the first one especially is a bit reminiscent of the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2012. The dress that Kate moss wore in that show, white with feathery bits, definitely could pass for this number's baby sister.

 And to continue with the Oscar de la Renta show, the piece below is another that quite stood out to me. A very Carrie-Bradshaw-esque piece in my opinion, especially with the pastel pink, off the shoulder crop top. I'm also in love with this yellow-green colour.

All in all, a fabulous collection. Mixing and matching of different textures, colours and patterns is my most favourite element in designs, and apart from the inherent femininity, it is definitely what called out to me in this designer's work.

Be Right Back!

I already haven't been posting this month, but these two weeks there's no chance I'll be able to do so either. I'll be back after the 20th of June, which is when I have my Design Review (eep!).
In the mean time you can check out my tumblr, 'cause I have been and probably will continue posting there for the time being. :)

Revlon Haul and Mini Review

Finishing early from Uni yesterday resulted in a 'mini' make-up shopping spree. I kind of skimp on make-up usually. However I have been watching a lot of beauty videos on youtube and I'm slowly getting hooked. In fact, I think I'll do a post with my favourite beauty videos and such. Until then, I shall rave and buy more make-up and rave some more. Below is what I bought and a little about what I thought. :)

Revlon Matte Blush in 002 Blushing Berry

This is a warm berry-pink colour with just(barely) a hint of peach. I really like this. It's quite pigmented, just enough to manage, and the brush is good. I've been wearing it every day since I bought this. I think it adds that 'natural blush' and I find that really flattering. I don't really like that 'obvious blush' look, if you know what I mean.

Revlon Super Lustrous in 026 Abstract Orange

I think this is a very summery colour. It's one of the two orange-red toned lipsticks I have. I wore it today and it's one of my new favourites. It's got a pearly sheen which this range of Revlon lipsticks have. I don't like it much on  my lips but overall it's very pretty. The colour is a coral-red which is really nice for during the day, I think. It adds a nice touch of colour to the face. 

Revlon Colorburst  in 010 Plum


I love this colour. I actually had a very similar one, but it broke and the packaging got all smashed and meh I had to buy a new one. I wore this already and it's good. It's creamy and it's pigmented. I don't wear it alone because I'm not used to that kind of thing; I pat it on and apply a clear moisturising lip-balm over it (or the other way round) and it's really really nice.

Barry M Lipstick in 151 Sunset


I know I said 'Revlon Haul' and this is clearly not Revlon, but I bought this a while ago and I thought I should put this here. I bought this online and I was quite disappointed. The swatch looked different, it's in fact much more bright. It's very pigmented and it looks almost neon when applied. I only use this when I want to add some coral to a more nude-coloured lip-tone. 

Mini Nail Enamels in 'Rock Star', 'Gold Coin' and 'Ruby'.

See the 'Gold Coin' one? The texture is gorgeous.

These mini nail-colours where a gift. They're more wintry colours but I really like them. I'm wearing the 'Gold Coin' one in fact. It's very consistent and the quality is good. Nothing to say against it. :)

Happy Weekend!
Tina :)
