Few words about me

Hi, everybody! I’m Svetlana (Lana for short), fashion & beauty addict and I don’t have any slightest intention to get rid of this obsession. I’m a big fan of good old movies too.

My English is far from perfect so I apologize in advance for mistakes I’ll make.

My pinterest account is here.

Star and Moon In Your Ears, Lips In Your Arms

If you want to look  stylish but not serious go for Betsey Johnson‘s stuff.

Halter Illusion Dress + Mystic Baroque Star Moon Earrings + Rebel Rebel Suquin Lips Tote + sandals Sullivan = outfit for a walk in the city or evening in the bar.

From China With Chic

It’s hard to believe but some people think that label “Made in China” on clothes is a sign of bad quality. I’d like to advise those snobs sceptical minds to visit site of Shanghai Tang.

Pink Silk Cotton Stone Button Short Sleeve Qipao Top, black 3/4 Sleeve Silk BlouseQuilted Jacquard Shorts and Gingko Embroidery Tassel Silk Box Clutch are real pleasure for fashionista’s eye.

Shanghai Tang‘s knitwear is a pure luxury. I like Cashmere Silk Long Sleeve Lined Royal Leaf Zip Cardigan (silk lining make this piese even more posh) and Cashmere-Silk Reversible Jade Cardigan.

And as dress obsessed person I have no other choice but to fall in love with Wool Contrast Strap Short Sleeve Qipao Dress (vertical straps make our bodies more slimmer).

It will look even more cute with Gingko Embroidery Tassel Silk Box ClutchKenneth Jay Lane‘s White And Red Enamel Branch RingCrystal And Coral Branch Eurowire Earring and Magrit‘s Sofie.

Thinking of Coming Autumn

Those who live in Central Europe have had only few days to enjoy sunny weather this summer (maybe August will heat us up, who knows?) and soon we will have no other choice but to put our boots and heavy jackets on.

So there is an outfit for the first chilly days.

1bt

Schott‘s 525W leather jacket, Triarchy‘s Indigo Skinny jeans, Red Wing Herritage‘s 3406 Clara boots (handmade, by the way) and bright spot – Bed Stu‘s red Half Moon cross-body bag (handmade too).

Few thoughts about style and Ottoman Hands jewellery

For me stylish woman is someone who choose the stuff which suits her best doesn’t matter what all those recent trends dictate us. Got chisseled shoulders? Wear wide neck tops and dresses! You fingers are long and and wrists are thin – invest in rings and bracelets. Also you have to wear all your things with confidence and dignity even they cost pennies. If you don’t have this quality you will look like a mule in horse harness (we Russians say “like crow in peacocks feathers”) even in haute couture pieces and posh jewellery.

Why I’m telling all those things? Well, Ottoman Hands jewellery does not belong to Van Cleef & Arpels league, but wearing it you can feel yourself The Queen of Sheba (if you poses that magic quality, of course). By the way, Ottoman Hands jewellery is handmade and inspired by rich and exotic Turkish culture.

I like Labradorite, Aqua Chalcedony and Rose Quartz Three Stone RingEvil Eye Studs and Gold Dipped Pink Agate Necklace.

I guess Ottoman Hands Coral Agate Reversed Disc Earrings will look great with Filippa K‘s cute Layered V-Neck Top WhiteRebecca Taylor‘s wide Crepe PantMarc Cain‘s Clutch Bag In Crocodile Look and Magrit‘s Violeta pumps.

Little Black Dress for Big Girls

LBD is a perfect choice, doesn’t matter how many pounds you have. French brand Alme creates clothing for big girls working meticulously with details and wins, of course.

Robe Emma with cute sleeves is a very stylish and timeless piece indeed.

You can find on side Alme‘s many stylish things besides dresses.

Dandruff Fighters

Dandruff is one of the worst fashionista’s enemies: these flakes on your shoulders can kill even the most perfect outfit. Beauty and health industries offer us a wide selection of remedies, so be ready that it will take time to find your right product.

Here is the short list of cosmetic stuff with anti-dandruff formulas.

Neutrogena’s T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo – Original Formula contains 0.5% Coal Tar (protect your hair from direct sunlight with scarf or hat while using products with Coal Tar) and promises to relieve all symptoms from the first use.  T/Gel Daily Control 2-in-1 Dandruff Shampoo plus Conditioner fights for clean scalp and shoulders  with help of Pyrithione Zink (by the way, Neutrogena offers 5 shampoos to cure your scalp).

Sachajuan’s Scalp Shampoo with Piroctone Olamine, Climbazole, Salicylic Acid and Ginger Extract removes Dandruff and maintains moisture balance of scalp and mane. Enriched with magic ingredients – black pepper wood Guyana  and  Sophora Japonica – Phyto’s Phytosquam Intense creamy shampoo will repair skin barrier properly.

If you want to try leave-in treatment go for Aveda’s Scalp Remedy Dandruff Solution with 2% Salicylic Acid, Oregano Leaf oil and  Rosemary, Echinacea, Sage extracts.

Please note, that in severe cases you must consult the doctor (dermatologist or trichologist) first.
