Trends: Stripes Mania

19 Mar

Oh, I knew it was all about stripes this year, but they are already killing my eyes: in stores, on the streets…everywhere. Plus, I whould say there is too much black and white for this summer. Well, never too much white, but a mix.

Well, there is Mango propsing something else than black&white:

My style: Waiting for spring

16 Mar

Do you rember the Jenna Lyons inspired outfit post? Here is my own version of it I have been wearing a few days ago: basic jeans, shirt and pumps, beige coat, clutch and a statement necklace. Alltogether, a chic and versatile outfit.

I am anxiously waiting for spring and hopefully  the coat would not be of much use in a week. However, it could easily be replaced by a classy beige trench coat.

What do you think? Do you have any ideas for pimping this outfit?

H&M Fall 2013

28 Feb

H&M is back on the runway after 8 years and I must admit the return was not bad at all – at Musee Rodin during Paris Fashion Week.

The fall collection is all about black, with a few touches of beads, studs and fur. Though not much my style, I like the cuts of the coats and the cape in particular. If only I could find one to fit me.

What do you think? Do you have a personal fav?

H&M is taking back your old clothes

14 Feb

You have probably heard that H&M, the second largest garnments retailer is launching a recycling program that allows you to exchange your old, worn out, out of date clothes for a voucher.

You do not have to bother, they collect everything you might have, 90% of the materials could be recycled. But how much are you getting for a bag?

The news around the world are telling us that the Brits will get something around 5 Pounds for a bag, while the Romanians will only get 5 lei, the equivlent of only one Pound.

As the purpose of the initiative, as H&M states, is to H&M wants to reduce the environmental impact of garments throughout the lifecycle and create a closed loop for textile fibres, the value of the voucher should not be the driver of the fashionistas, but the environment.

Now..how motivating do you find it? Is it easy for you to find bags of old clothes to take them to H&M? Would you do it for the sake of the environment or for the voucher?

As for me, I have the aspiration of becomeing an environmentalist one day, but still I will find it difficult to collect a bag of old clothes.

And which size the bag should be? They haven’t told…
