Written by John Hughes and directed by Howard Deutch, the 1986 movie ‘Pretty in Pink’ continues to be a classic. The film follows the story of Andie (Molly Ringwald), who grows up on the poor side of town. She has a crush on the rich kid Blane (Andrew McCarthy), and Andie must choose between him and her childhood friend Duckie (John Cryer).

Through it all, the film features a view of 1980’s teen fashion with a cool New Wave soundtrack. One of the most iconic style moments from the film comes courtesy of a prom scene where Andie shows up in a pink dress she made herself. So what was the story behind the iconic look? Costume designer Marilyn Vance sewed two dresses together to make the polka dot embellished piece. For more casual style, Andie embraced oversized proportions and playful accessories such brooches, earrings and hats. Discover more 1980’s fashion from ‘Pretty in Pink’ below.

DOLCE & GABANNA CHEVRON LUCIA SHOULDER BAG

Categories:Other Brands

Dolce-_-Gabanna-Chevron-Lucia-Shoulder-Bag

The Dolce & Gabbana Lucia Bag is not a recently-released handbag. But when we spotted this bag in Chevron Quilting, we stopped and pause. It’s actually quite impressive. Now, the Chevron Quilting print embellished on the Lucia Bag is an improved version for the Fall Winter 2017 Collection. If you start falling in love with this bag, perhaps you might want to read on!

The Design

Dolce-_-Gabanna-Chevron-Lucia-Shoulder-Bag-4

The Lucia Shoulder Bag has a sophisticated look but very modern and timeless. We belief this is an one-time purchase and forever-yours investment, because this bag will never get old.

The boxy shape makes it intriguing and the adjustable short handles are quite flexible. You see, you can adjust the short handles to your comfort – you can then carry the bag on your shoulder (with the short-handles) or just tote it by hand. But of course, it also comes with a long shoulder leather strap, which can be removed and also be adjusted.

What’s most fabulous is the Chevron Quilting embellished all over the body of this bag. Then it’s finalized with a sophisticated clasp surrounded by 7 studs.

Made from calfskin leather, which is a durable and scratch-resistance material.

The Interior

Dolce-_-Gabanna-Chevron-Lucia-Shoulder-Bag-3

When D&G creates a handbag, they think about the interior as much as the exterior. The space of this Lucia Bag has been maximized in order to help you store as much necessities as possible. Inside you will find two compartments, a zipped central compartment, a slot pocket and card slots. With so much compartments, it’s easier to organize your essentials.

The Sizes And Prices

Measuring 7.5’ x 10’ x 4.5’ (H x W x D) inch, priced at $2995 USD, €2250 euro, $3950 AUD, $22900 HKD, ¥319000 JPY.

5 BEAUTY TRENDS TO WATCH FOR SUMMER 2017

Categories:Fashion

Stay bang on trend with this beauty guide from the experts

Each season beauty trends shift, from the make-up we put on our faces to the shape of our brows. That said, it can be near impossible to keep up to date with the ever-changing landscape. Thankfully, leading beautician and salon supplier, Ellisons, have come up with a super useful guide to keep your brows ‘on fleek’ and your hair looking sleek.

90s style gloss

Bright colors have been a constant fixture on the runway for SS17, paying homage to the infamous 90s look. But it’s not just the clothing styles that are synonymous with the era, makeup artists are going brighter and glossier than ever. Think bright pink blushers and contrasting eyes to achieve instantly recognisable look that will stand out from the crowd. Don’t be afraid to clash an orange and pink, or blue and purple. Two-tone lips and eyes are all in this season. 

Sparkles

Glitter has been big in certain circles for years, but this year, the catwalks were positively shimmering. Applying glitter on your eyes is a great way to spruce up your look for a night out or even more apt for the festival season. But it doesn’t have to stop at eyes: your nails can sparkle too with Ellisons nail art kits. You can even invest in some headwear that sparkles too for a fabulous night-out look.

Makeup-free

Natural-looking skin has been an emerging trend for a while now but more designers and makeup artists have opted for makeup-free models on the catwalk this year. The trick is to look makeup-free, whilst actually wearing makeup. You can do this by choosing nude and beige eyeshadows, applied in the creases for a natural finish. Or a subtle lip liner, and some fresh, dewy-looking foundation. Finish it off with brown mascara instead of black for ultimate subtlety.

Dewy skin

Moving away from the all-matte-everything of last year, an omnipresent look at each show this year was healthy looking, dewy skin. This can be achieved by using a tinted moisturizer instead of a foundation, or by adding highlighter above the cheekbones, just underneath your eyebrows, on top of your cupid’s bow and down the bridge of your nose.

Smudgey eyes

Much more relaxed than the precise cat-eye flick, smudged eyeliner is undeniably in this season. The ‘unfinished’ look was adorned by models in a number of notable shows in a dark, ashy color palette, creating a beautifully sultry look. It’s a stunning look, and much easier to achieve than attempting the perfect winged eyeliner.

These looks are only a few of many that have been trending this year. There are many more to add to the list, but these are our favorites. What are your favorite beauty trends?

CHANEL GOLDEN CLASS DOUBLE CC O CASE

Categories:Other Brands

Chanel-Golden-Class-CC-O-Case

Straight from the Fall Winter 2017 Collection, a new Chanel O Case has emerged. It’s inspired by the latest Golden Class Double CC design, which looks both modern and classic. Recently there are a lot of new styles created for the O Case Collection, but this version is one of the best so far.

The design
The main component of the Golden Class Double CC is the 3D CC clasp on the front of the bag. It would be very difficult to create this style without the flap. The 3D CC Clasp is supported by a golden plate, which has been attached to the bag with four screws.

Just like the Classic Flap Bag, this Chanel O Case is also embellished in diamond quilting. It’s made in grained calfskin, which feels luxurious but the leather is also durable. The Golden Class Double CC is feminine, chic and the double CC gives a modern impression. It’s available in classic colors like black and navy, which one would fits the best you think?

The interior
Just like the other Chanel O Cases, the inside is quite simple. It just features one large compartment to store your personal items. The essentials you can carry is limited.

The Chanel Golden Class Double CC O Case is measured 9.3’ x 13.8’ x 1.6’ inches. The size is comparable to the Chanel Large O Case. The style code is A84053 and the price is $1400 USD, €1420 euro, £1230 GBP, $2180 AUD, $2280 SGD, $11500 HKD, ¥11200 CNY, ¥117120 JPY via Chanel boutiques.
