Happy sunday morning lovely followers!

Let’s pick up where I left, it’s been a while since I published my sunday trend report but today it’s time for a new trend! Black and white! 

Minimalistic fashion, interior design and whatever else minimalistic, it’s all hot! Including minimalistic fashion as I said earlier this week in my inspiration post. Minimalism is partly expressed by using less colors or less flashy colors. Hot right now are black and white! And I must have to admit, I am starting to love black and white more and more! 🙂

So today in this trend report, some of my favorite black and white items! For starters, one must have a black jeans / pants whatever, a black skirt and a black blazer / jacket. This also means, white jeans / pants, white tops or shirts and a white blazer. Items with both black and white in it are also just perfect for this trend! Since I am quiet a girly person and my style is pretty feminine most of the times, I love to mix black and white up with soft pastels or flashy pops of color! Right now I love pastels with black and white… Already seen my outfit from last week? Go check it out!

How to wear, easy this trend can be casual, chic, sporty, edgy, you name it! Black and white are perfect colors for everyone I think. 

What do you think of this trend… HOT or NOT? Let me know in a comment 🙂

Trend report: Sweater weather

Sweater weather kenzo style fashion mode trend report watching inspiration sarandipity fashion blog dutch blogger forever21 burberry reiss vero moda

Hi dear followers,

Normally I actually don’t wear sweaters that much (I am more a tank top / t-shirt + cardigan kind of girl), but this year I re-discovered this fashion item! Sweaters are available in tons of different designs, different budgets and above all I have discovered some new ways to style them! So yeah, sweaters can be damn fashionable! 

So the first trend report of 2014 is all about sweater weather, it’s not really really cold outside but cold enough to wear a nice jumper or sweater! Some of the items above are really special and others are more basic (like the blue jumper from Reiss for example, which is super basic and very well to style!).  Personally I love to have both basic sweaters and more special ones. At the moment I am really wishing for a KENZO sweater! Last year they had a tiger head on their designs and now it’s an eye. I think this design is very intriguing (but maybe that’s just because I am an applied psychologist haha) but it’s so gorgeous! I love it. 

Besides the KENZO sweater I also really love the Paris sweater, the basic blue one, the cream white one with beaded neck-line and the Batman sweater (which is totally awesome!) Which sweaters from the ones above are your favorites?? 

Today I will be going to Utrecht to have a HUGE outfit shoot with some lovely fellow bloggers and of course we are going to have a lot of fun as well!

Have a lovely sunday everyone! xoxo Saranda

Trend report: Fashionable Christmas

Morning lovely followers!

It is Sunday again so automaticly that means it is time for a new trend report!! Since Christmas day is near, only 10 more days to go, I thought; “lets make this trendreport about Chrismas fashion!”. And so here it is! 

We all know the (ugly) Christmas jumpers, with a huge Rudolf on it. Think Bridget Jones diary starring Mark Darcy and the jumper his mother made for him! 😉 But now it’s becoming a trend, a lot of stores sells Christmas jumpers, for example the Primark or online shops like ASOS and Boohoo. Luckily they are not all ugly! 😉 

Check out some of the Chirstmas jumpers and other fashion / lifestyle related Christmas products I found in the Polyvore moodboard above! I really like the Ginger bread jumper, the mintgreen & creme jumper (top right) and the London Christmas jumper (bottom right). Besides that check out those cute Christmas socks, the snowflakes legging and the Jingle Bells necklace! 

What are your favorites? Let me know in a comment! 
Happy Sunday everyone, xoxo Saranda

Trend report: the great Gatsby

Trend: the great Gatsby


Happy monday morning everyone! 

How was your weekend? Mine was great, relaxed and I actually shopped some nice things!
Soon on the blog of course! 😉  

Thanks to a lot of fashion magazines, Bridget Jones on the television and me finally getting a job, I got my inspiration bag and therefore I wanted to share this trend report with you! Yesterday I showed you the slip dress trend and how to wear, today it is all about ‘the great Gatsby’. This movie has become it’s own trend, ASOS.com is shopping walhalla for Flapper dresses and dresses with a lot of embellishments! The movie was great, but the trend is even hotter! Imagine yourself in a chic flapper dress, time travelling to the roaring twenties and partying with the true great Gatsby, or DiCaprio if you like 😉 

For me the clutch and bracelet from the moodboard are a musthave! I think the great Gatsby trend is not very easy to style. But with a furry vest or coat, simple pumps in black or nude I think you are pretty safe! 

The great Gatsby trend is also seen on many catwalks and in the fashion magazines. Click on the read more button for some photo’s!  

Ciao!

Trend report: Dare to wear, the slip dress!

Happy sunday lovely followers!


Today’s sunday trend report is all about a daring trend, fierce, sexy and above all feminine and romantic. But so far I have not participated this trend, simply because it is very daring! By layering this statement item, the slip dress, with a knitted sweater almost everyone can pull of this trend! Match a dark (black or navy) slip dress with a soft colored knitted sweater, for example white, cream or a pastel color. Or vice versa you can match a white slip dress with a more darker knit (not sure I would go for a white / cream slip dress though… )

You can also pull of the slip dress by styling it with more grungy items (like a boucle or leather biker jacket) or a very sophisticated look with a long pastel colored coat! 

Above all I think you should try to style the slip dress in a way that you cover up other parts of your body. Either you show some cleavage OR you show some legs, not both. And I guess with the slip dress trend I would rather like to show my legs! For me wearing the slip dress with a knitted item like a sweater or a huge fluffy cardigan is the way to go! 

Maybe you’ll even see me wearing this trend soon! 😉 
Have a nice day everyone!! xo Saranda
