trends for f/w 16

hey lovelies ! here is a few trends for this season and how to style them. Article inspired by WGSN.


Pleated midi skirt -  pleats and bodre fabrics adding structure to styles. Metallics, Lurex and mesh drive a Gucci-inspired air across retailers. Paired with bomber jackets or oversized band hoodies and fur. sneakers or boots depending on the weather. You can either dress it up or down depending on the top you chose !


Embroidery accents - Embroidery originally emerged from Gucci. Usually seen on denim, now retailers are taking a step up and putting them on literally anything: blouse, hoodies, skirts, you name it. Mostly floral/nature inspired embroidery remain the focus.  


with the embroidery come the back details. patches and embroidery focused to the back or the top. With statements or brand names. 


vintage tees - it continues to be important for retailers, but now using different sillouhettes and styling details. Rock band tees are taking most of the place in this category. Mostly on dark grey or black bases adding a boyish edge to the outfits.


metallics - obviously the holiday season is here so shine is the focus. Gold and silver are most important here but retailers put their own twist on the shiny. It's seen on dresses. bodysuits, skirts, anything! 


hem details - We saw hem details first from denim cut at the end. But now retailers are taking a turn and adding step hem, pompoms and different silhouettes.

fashion trends for the colder weather

hey lovelies !
the colder months are just around the corner, here are some fashion trend items to add to you closet & keep warm, especially when you live in Canada!
the key message for this season
SPORTY SEPARATES COLLIDE WITH AN ULTRA-FEMININE AND ECLECTIC STYLING DIRECTION, AS THE APPETITE FOR HYBRID LOOKS INCREASES.THIS, COMBINED WITH THE DEMAND FOR TRANS-SEASONAL PIECES, PROVIDES A COMMERCIAL OPPORTUNITY TO UPSELL ACROSS CATEGORIES THIS AUTUMN
decorative denim 

Layer a denim jacket or add a thick vintage inspire pair of jeans with some embroidery, patches or color block.

lace layer

Lingerie inspired items have been trendy for a few seasons now, but for winter, layer a lace slip dress over or under a thick sweater, or had a cute lace tank over a long sleeve top

mesh overlay

Add a mesh shirt over a basic tee or wear a long sleeve mesh bodysuit over a cute lace bra

puffy coat

We've seen RiRi wear a bright pink one, really extravagant, but retailers took it to a more commercial level. Wear your puffy jacket with pretty much anything ! The oversized cut makes it easy to layer over all your favorite outfits 

souvenir bomber

If you don't own a bomber, what are you doing with your life???? bomber jackets became a staple last season. for f/w 2016, go for the souvenir style bomber with baseball sleeves, embroidery and a vintage look.Most seen in a satin fabric and/or with quilting. 

cold shoulder sweater

You love your cute cold shoulder crop top from summer? well no worries, they come in sweaters too! don't be scared to be cold with the one from last season, just get a knit and you'll be safe for the colder months

colored faux fur

We knew that faux fur was a statement for accessories&footwear, but now it's becoming one in apparel. Retailers are adding pops of colours adding bright faux fur trims to jackets.

What cleared my skin

Hey lovelies !

Today, I'm going to talk about how I cleared my skin from acne. Since I was young, about 11-12 years old, I was dealing with acne. It was never severe but it was pretty heavy on my face and body. When i was 13, I got prescribe the pill to help the acne, it worked a little bit. In high school I was wearing foundation to try to cover everything but wasn't really taking my makeup off every night. I was using cetaphile cleanser and moisturizer. Tried all the acne creams possible and almost when on accutane but I wasn't ready to deal with the side effects. When I was 15 i was diagnosed with poly-cystic ovaries syndrome which unbalances your hormones like crazy. I started to get treated for that with a drug and also the pill and it really helped. My acne was gone on my body and was less intense on my face. So i was wearing less make up which also helped. Getting to college i was now dealing with acne scars and still some acne but smaller pimples. this year (2016) my resolution was to get clear skin. Started to take my makeup off every night, wash my face 2x a day and actually put good stuff on my skin. Here are the products  I've tried so far, what worked and what didn't.
From high end products to drugstore and cheaper alternatives.

HIGH END

la neige - hydration trial kit $38.00




Went to sephora and asked the girl for something to help with acne& scars with sensitive skin. suggested this.... WORST. broke me out bad. the fragrance in it did not go well on my skin. but thankfully it was cheap & sephora do returns ;)







caudalie - Vinoperfect Cell Renewal Night Cream $65.00






Said to brighten& detoxify skin. I've heard caudalie products are really good, but my skin didn't like this one. It broke me out again so I returned it.













ole henriksen - 3 little Wonders mini $30.00





This was really a little wonder. Brightened my skin and made it even. the truth serum is amazing ! Bought the sheer transformation full size after but the rest was too expensive for me and the small size don't last very long. But it works if you have the money !






AFFORDABLE 


andalou naturals clementines + C illuminating toner 10.99




on vitacost for some proteins, ended in the beauty section...
This stuff is AMAZING. My skin was so bright and even. This stuff is cheap and you get SO much. I've had it for about 6months and its about 3/4 done. Love it and it's full of great ingredients for your skin. Switch to using mostly natural stuff and it really helps.








now foods dark spot serum - $11.99






This was great too. in conjunction with the toner, i'd say i got rid of 90% of my acne scars. It takes a long time and patience though. This was also so affordable and full of good ingredients. That's why i love shopping on vitacost. I won't go back to other places if i can find it on there !









pure organic rosehip oil (any brand does)






rosehip oil is amazing. you can basically find it in any health store. prices vary but there are a few on vitacost for $5. as long as it says pure & organic. I use it at night on top of everything or whenever my skin feels dry. It's a smelly and orangy oil but its not too thick and greasy on your skin. very moisturizing and helps scars and fine lines.








andalou natural purple carrots + c night cream $19.99






this broke me out :( and unfortunately you can't return from canada on vitacost.... i thought i would love it because its the same line as the toner but something in there didn't work for me. it's hard sometimes to pinpoint what ingredient breaks you out so i just stopped using it.










To take my makeup off i use the garnier miscellar water (pink) and to cleanse i use either to spectro gel or cetaphile because they're gentle and take the extra makeup off. I also use the garnier 3 in 1 exfoliator and the indian clay mask once a week or so. 

hope this helps :)
