Helping The World Through Fashion

Ellison -Whiskey Tortoise

What do fashion, a fashion blog and helping people in need have in common? The answer is Warby Parker. Not too long ago I was introduced to this amazing company and am proud to be able help in their cause. This is not a sponsored post. Warby Parker is an online optical and sunglass company which not only provides great quality fashionable eye-wear at a fraction of a price but also helps people around the world.  Their styles are available exclusively through their website and showrooms.

Did you know that approximately one billion people don’t have access to affordable glasses? That means that 15% of the world’s population is unable to effectively learn or work because they can’t see clearly. When you purchase a new pair Warby Parker provides funding and/or glasses to non-profit partners such as VisionSpring.  Their non-profit partners provide glasses and training to low income entrepreneurs in developing countries to start their own business selling glasses to individuals who otherwise would not have access to glasses. Check out their website for more stories.
And not only is Warby Parker helping people in need, they are also taking care of our environment in the process. They actively work to reduce their environmental impact by mapping out our greenhouse gas emissions– from frame production to shipping to warehousing to office work–and purchasing carbon offsets accordingly.

Eyewear is an important part of a person’s style. It can make or break a look. As a huge fan of sunglasses and glasses in general I highly recommend you check out this brand. Check out their new fall collection which officially launches today. The collection debuts five new frames in a mix of materials—bold acetate in rich, autumnal colors at the brow and nose, and stainless steel-rimmed lenses. Each name—Ames, Ripley, Rowan, Holcomb and Ellison—is a reverent bow to some of their favorite literary references of the 60s era. The 15 options, featuring sunwear and optical, provide midcentury style without the flea market goose chase.  Did you see their new cool video? Every pair is custom fit with anti-reflective, polycarbonate prescription lenses.

Make sure you check out their website. They provide also amazing features such as Virtual Try-On and Home Try-On Program make the shopping experience fun and easy. Help their cause, help those who need it, save money and very importantly, stay fashionable through it all. Ciao!

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

How to Stay Warm in the Tricky Spring Weather

Jeans Zara, boots Forever 21, blouse Forever 21, jacket Mango (old), scarf Aldo, sunnies Ray-Ban, bag Louis Vuitton (with my own chain strap), gloves H&M
As the sun is out again and the weather doesn't require thick layers of clothing, I get to get out more out and about the city. The spring is the time when I walk the most, sometimes for hours. It also helps with the few winter pounds heheh. Though long walks require comfort, I still like to wear a cute little outfit. You may think how are heeled boots comfortable, but to be honest, I get more easily tired walking in flats then in heels. Granted, for these long walks I opt for a more chunky heel and a shoe with a strong foot support, rather then a thin stiletto heel. 
I recently purchased these Forever 21 booties and decided they were going to be the piece around which the outfit is built. With me, the outfit builders are usually the shoes haha. And though it was a nice spring day, layers were still a must. I layered a soft t…

Instagram Roundup

I haven't posted much lately and now I'm on vacation for another week or so, so no new posts are expected before I return. I wanted however to share with you a few of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account. Few more pictures have been posted since but you will have to go to my Instagram account to see more. 

The Best Blazer. Period.

Blazer Premonition (FigJam.To), dress White by Vera Wang, sandals (Winners), belt Express
Today's outfit was not intended to be shared on the blog, but rather just on my Instagram. It was shot (you can see the quality of the pictures) with a phone camera in a prompt 2 minute photo shoot, as I was running late for a weeding. But I was soooooo excited by this blazer that I had to share it here as well. I had too many pictures that I liked and I could not show them all on Instagram, otherwise people would un-follow me for spamming them hahahaha. 
I got this blazer delivered this same day and it fit perfectly with the dress I had chosen to wear to the event. It is from a website called FigJam.To which specializes in Australian designers. I took one look at this gorgeous piece and I HAD to have it. How amazing is the detailing on the back? Perfect to show off your dress...or your derrier when you pair it with some tight jeans....It's beautifully tailored. A perfect boyfriend blaze…
