Paris Fashion Week. Oui s’il vous plaît!

chanel PFW 18

Paris is one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in the world. Si romantique! Not only is it SO gorgeous, it’s home to one of the “Big Four” fashion weeks! Probably one of the most popular fashion weeks. Many great shows happened in PFW which started September 24th and ended on October 2nd.

One of my all time favorite shows from Paris was Chanel! Duh. Chanel didn’t only have one of the greatest collections this season, the setup for the show was visually simulating! Literally one of the most creative and realistic looking setups I’ve seen. Kudos to the visual team who brought that to life! Karl Lagerfeld created a beach, with sand and real water. No seriously, there was a boardwalk and tiki huts at the Grand Palais!!

What was great about Karl’s show this year was a movement towards feminism and the relaxed touches he added to each look. Some models were barefoot, others in sneakers throughout the runway show. He ditched the heels and created a comfortable catwalk for his models. Some of his looks even had a laid back look with black leggings. I know some people in the industry were like “whaaaaat” but majority of us were like “heck yes!!!” It’s about damn time leggings make it on the designer runway and I’m all for his looks. The show was just amazing, and so many people were pleased with his take on the new SS19 collection.

Lagerfeld seriously made such great pieces for this SS19, there was denim lace! He displayed all the trends happening now with the biker shorts, sundresses, and sneakers. I loved seeing him bring back the 90s vibe with rhinestone accessories and belts that spelled out ‘CHANEL’

His collection was  all about feeling good, and looking effortlessly put together. Now that’s a lewk so many of us are excited about! I hope you enjoyed this post on Chanel, one of my all time favorite designers. Leave a comment below and let me know what you think about his fashion movement!

Fall Beauty

img_2221.jpg

Saturday September 22nd is when Autumn 2018 officially starts, are you ready?! Well ready or not, it’s here! There’s Fall and Halloween decorations everywhere, pumpkin spice is in the air, and stores are already selling you on that must have sweater! Meanwhile here in LA, I’m still frolicking around in my rompers and crop tops…

One of my favorite things about Fall is not only the awesome fashion, it’s all the beauty products and creations that come to L-I-F-E! That darker, more bold makeup look is back in town. Many brands are showing off all their hot new collections, and beauty bloggers are showing off their Fall lewks. I’ll be sharing with you guys some of the great shades I’ve come across from six different brands. They’re all right on the ball with this seasons color trends, so take your pick!

 

YSL

Dior has always been one of my favorites for lipsticks and glosses. They offer so many great shades, and different textures. This look was created by @peterphilipsmakeup using two of Dior’s new Ultra Rouge Lipsticks. They’re ultra shiny, with a semi matte finish, and amazing hydration for your beautiful pouts. Dior has 25 shades currently, and each lipstick goes for $37 on their website.

 

CHANEL

Chanel has got this Fall on lock when you see their newest collections. I mean look at those deep hues. Their olive-green hits right on Pantone’s ‘Martini Olive’ AW18 color trend forecast, check my previous post for more on Pantone’s AW18 color trends. The pods are Chanels ‘Ombre Premiere Longwear Cream Eyeshadow’ and the green beauty is color ‘836- Vert Metal.’ Nordstrom carries them and they go for $36, not bad for such an elegant satin finish!

Faux fur-enzy!

fauxfur by Arhaus Furniture

Faux fur has been a special treat to fashion for many years now. But! It’s finally becoming a more popular option and style. You can literally see faux fur everywhere these days, it’s quite fashionably hot or shall I say haute! Faux fur used to be seen as a less desirable option years ago, and was mainly worn by vegans. With today’s day and age of knowledge and new technology, many people are saying buh-bye to real fur and going f-a-u-x!

I personally am ecstatic about this and have loved so many brands that use faux fur instead of real. With so much great technology and advances in creating these synthetics, nowadays you can barely tell a part a faux from a real fur. That’s why many brands (with still some supporting real fur, shame) have made the switch over.

Prada back in 2007 was one of the firsts to take a charge towards the synthetic movement. Ms. Prada herself claimed she was ‘bored’ with real fur and in her 2007 Fall/Winter collection she put tons of faux fur in there. Many people couldn’t even tell the difference! PETA Europe was so excited over this that they sent Miuccia Prada a bouquet of roses. Anna Sui has been fully embracing the faux fur look for a couple of years now. She has some amazing pieces with her unique twists to all things faux. Check out her Fall Winter collections, they’re gorgeous.

Chanel also supports the faux fur movement! Master of haute couture, Karl Lagerfeld said “You cannot fake chic, but you can be chic and fake fur” Go Karl! In 2010 he surprised all his guests at his Ice Wonderland show in Paris with faux fur on everything! From coats, to separates, bags, boots, you name it. See all the gorgeous pieces from the collection here.

I’ve linked some of my favorite brands and their faux fur coats and vests that are super popular this Fall & Winter!

These two beauties are from Free People and they have AMAZING VEGAN coats and jackets!! They have some great options for under $200, so you don’t have to go broke trying to look cute.

H&M also has some amazing coat options, whether it’s a long, cropped, feathery, puffy, furry coat you’re looking for. I personally love the feathery and printed styles!

ff3

Oh and ladies, don’t forget your faux fur vests! I’ve linked these cozy and stylish ones from Nordstrom and some are even on sale!! Get it girl. Great as a gift for loved ones, or yourself duh.

I want to buy all colors, and prints!! Let me know what you guys think, are you into faux fur? And if so, fur coats or vests? I prefer coats, they suit me better than a vest. Happy Saturday loves!
