Luxury Queen Stella

December 23, 2016

Stella McCartney is the one creating awareness with famous people.

She is an activist as she is advertising how cool is to be sophisticated, sustainable, vegan and cruelty free.

Every time a celebrity is wearing Stella McCartney it is free advertising for cruelty free clothing and accessories.

We can argue that she is not cheap. However cheap clothing comes from sweat shops where not only they work in inhumane conditions but also they risk their lives as there were a few fires were a lot of workers died.

This interview is long, I would suggest to give yourself one minute to watch it, and if you can’t turn it off, you are like me. It is one of the best interviews I watched.

 

I am sharing some of her current items.

If you used to like fur, you can get here faux luxury fur. No animals harmed. No animals even used at all for this.

Purses, handbags, shoes, she is famous for her accessories:

Winter. We need sweaters. She had a really bad experience using a sustainable wool supplier from Patagonia. However Peta did an undercover and it was extremely cruel. The brand Patagonia was also using the same provider. Both stop using this cruel wool.

My take: next time you shop, check her website, her sale items. I got my shoes on sale and I am super happy and proud to wear them.

Lacrosse Alpha Thermal. I suffer from cold toes in winter. I like the rubber boots as they have more traction and it is easier to walk on ice without falling, but most of them are really cold. Now we have this Lacrosse boots, they are a little pricey but you would not need two pair of thermal socks.

Running shoes. Are they vegan? Are they cruelty-free?

June 11, 2016

Research and more research. Does it mean they are vegan because they use the word “synthetic” in the description? Can i trust that the Stella McCartney Adidas shoes are really vegan?

There are many options out there that are for sure vegan. You can find them in the Vickerey or Mooshoes website. But do I like them? I am not sure.

How much should we pay for running shoes? We have to consider how long and how often we will wear them. I think it is appropriate to  pay more than for a pair of party stilettos. For sure I will wear the sneakers more.

What can I say? yes, I love full skirts and I love black and white. You will see more of it in this site.
When I started this website I promised myself that I will be loyal to my style and I will not be affected by the latest trend out there.
I know you have been there. You are at the store and find THE ITEM, the one that is so your style that can’t be denied.
Recap, full skirts and black and white combinations are here today and they will be here again.

The yellow skirt

November 2, 2014

950-spring_2014_11_01_17_44_42950-spring_2014_11_01_17_44_05I have a thing for big skirts, long and short ones. They are not the best bet for short women.  What can I do? In my mind I am super tall.  Anyway long time ago I decided that I will wear everything I like as long as I am loyal to my taste.

This yellow one is from Zara. The same for the amazing moto faux leather Jacket.
Akira Chicago carries a lot of faux leather items like this purse. Perfect size.

One less item to think about. This perfect black faux-leather dress was also found at Forever21. Therefore, I did not break the bank. The shoes are Franco Sarto.  Everything faux-black-leather.  The blazer, I am in love with it. It is from Zara. I like it so much that I want to wear every day and at the same time, I do not want to wear it because I want it to last forever.
