Summer is officially upon us and this sweltering heat requires us to swap our sneakers for something more light and breathable. It is time to slip into some sandals and show off the pedicure you’ve been concealing in your lace-up shoes. Picking the right sandals can turn out to be a little bit more difficult than expected if you take into consideration the height, price and style, but have no worries because I have picked out my personal favorites for the summer. I know that you will find at least one pair that might make their way to your closet.
The year’s most glamorous event is upon us and this years theme is Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology. The theme explores the mixture of handmade and machine-made haute couture and ready-to-wear pieces. Take a look at the best dressed A-Listers that attended this year’s Met Gala in New York City.

The Oscar’s red carpet is unarguably the epicenter where the best A-List actors and actresses stroll down every year with the hopes of later that night taking home the so coveted Oscar. Take a look at this year’s best dressed, and yes, we are finally including the men as well.

The major ’90s throwback piece has been making a comeback and I couldn’t be happier. The weightless dress is a great go-to clothing item for anything from a casual day out in the city to a date night. The silhouette created by a slip dress will truly make a statement if you style it right.
I must admit that I have lately been embracing a more Normcore style. Choosing casual and plain looking jeans, hoodies and tops over flamboyant pieces. Now some shriek when they hear the word “Normcore” fearing that it would become an unfortunate fad, which it did. However, when you are a young individual on a budget and constantly on the go there is really no time to deliberate on ritzy getups.
Depending on where you live the winter weather will continue for a while longer, and unfortunately some of you may experience an over abundance of snow. If you want to enjoy the chilly temperature while keeping warm a faux fur coat can do the job. I have always been an advocate against the use of real animal fur, and will never agree with its use. Stella McCartney, who never fails to impress me, took the initiative a while back to introduce her ‘Fur-free-Fur’ creations, which offer an array faux fur coats. Hopefully this effort with help push other designers to join the faux fur bandwagon.
