Germany, here I come!

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who's reading this blog. Since I published my post about Demi, the number of page views has doubled! I have been checking my stats on a regular basis and I noticed that my readers are people from all over the world... it put a huge smile on my face, you have no idea how much it means to me :)

Tomorrow morning I'm going on holiday to Germany... I don't know how long I will stay there. All I know is I need some time to relax and I will be back full of ideas, ready to provide you with new style guides and fashion tips! The winner of my previous poll is Taylor Swift, but I always spend a few hours browsing the Internet, preparing some outfits and today I'm in a rush... I hope you understand. Stay tuned, as soon as I get home from Germany, I will start working on this post.

Enjoy your summer, have fun... make the best of it! :)
Take care!

Modern fashion icons: Demi Lovato

And the winner of the poll I put up on my blog is... ladies and gentlemen, Demi Lovato. This beautiful and extremely talented girl got 85% of your votes, leaving the others with absolutely no chance of winning.

Demi Lovato is an American singer, songwriter, musician and actress. She has recently released her new single called 'Skyscraper', which immediately topped the iTunes charts. Apart from being a girl with an incredible voice, Demi is also a great fashion inspiration. Her style is a mixture of casual and more formal clothes. She plays with fashion, constantly evolving, maturing and leaving us amazed.

I have to admit it was really hard to choose the best outfits. There were a few other ones I really wanted to include, but had to make up my mind... Credit goes to Google and

Demi shopping at Nordstrom in West Hollywood. Her Urban Outfitters dress is a great example of how the smallest details such as lace can make a black dress look unconventional. She went for a Louis Vuitton bag, which matches her dress and the key necklace. I absolutely love the combination of patterned tights & black tied boots. It's a simple outfit, but Demi keeps it classy.

How to get this look:

Demi Lovato with Miley Cyrus in Toluca Lake, California. Pairing checked shirts with black skinny jeans has to be one of my favourite sets. Not only does it look great, it's also really comfortable. Whether it's summer or a cold autumn day, it's still perfect.

How to get this look:

Demi and Joe on the set of 'Make a wave' music video. If you were to open my closet, it wouldn't take a genius to notice that I totally have a thing for floral dresses. I love how she went for red wedges and a denim jacket to add some colour, therefore making this outfit stand out.

How to get this look:

Leaving an office building in Manhattan, NYC. When you look at the first picture, the combination of a patterned skirt and open-toe heels makes her legs look shorter. However, the second one is much better and shows how well these colours suit Demi. I love her blazer, camel/nude clothes are totally IN this season!

How to get this look:

Demi is a very fashion-conscious person, so she knows that maxi skirts and dresses are the hit of this season. She's a genius when it comes to adding accessories. This time she went for her favourite Louis Vuitton bag, a hat and a matching belt. A perfect outfit for a casual meeting with friends.

How to get this look:

And finally... This is definitely one of my favourite outfits EVER. I'm obsessed with white/cream lace dresses. They are suitable both for a night out with friends and more formal events. I also love the knit vest and high heels she wore. This set is totally to die for!

Modern fashion icons: Hanna Beth

Hey everyone,

I have to admit I've had this terrible writer's block for some time... As I was enjoying my holiday, I came up with an idea to present a number of the greatest fashion inspirations EVER in series called 'Modern fashion icons'.
I put up a poll on the right, so you can vote & choose the person who will be featured in my next post! If you don't like any of the suggestions, feel free to leave me a comment saying who you think should appear on my blog instead :)

So, my choice for today's Modern Fashion Icon is Hanna Beth. Hanna is a model for Skelanimals and a few other photographers. She has recently launched a clothing line called 'Sober is sexy' and designed her own 'Glamour Kills' collection. Not only do I think she's a HUGE fashion inspiration, she also inspired the name of my blog.

I've been browsing the Internet for the past few days to find photos of my favourite outfits. Credit goes to Photobucket, Flickr, Hanna's Buzznet and a few other sites I can't think of at the moment!

Hanna arriving at the 12th Annual Young Hollywood Awards. She went for a black dress with lace sleeves & paired it with ripped tights and gorgeous pink pumps. My friend was trying to sell similar shoes some time ago, but I wasn't interested back then... I think I should go ask her if she still has them!

I can't really tell if she's wearing any top underneath, but she looks amazing. She knows exactly how to mix different styles: a combination of leather jacket & a classy mini skirt looks amazingly good. Plus, I love stuff she has in her closet, especially that leopard print fur on the left & the cardigan with lips all over it on the right... or whatever that is.

Behind the scenes of 'Sober is sexy' photoshoot. I'm totally in love with her leopard print jacket. It goes very well with smokey eyes & her dark lipstick and creates the image of a stylish rock chick.

I love the combination of a black dress/tunic with denim waistcoat.  Not only does it add some colour, it also makes the outfit way more casual. Hanna paired it with ripped fishnet stockings (only for brave people, I don't think I would go out wearing them...) and black boots. A pretty person looks pretty in every clothing- she's the living proof.

She looks so adorable & innocent in these pictures. I totally have a thing for white/beige dresses. Even if they are lace dresses with flounces, they're still amazing. What's more, I wish I could have Hanna's shoe closet- her high heels are gorgeous.

Wearing leggings with a dress has to be one of my favourite sets ever. It's simple, comfortable & looks really pretty. What really amazed me is the fact that normally wearing black clothes would be considered boring, but in this case just a scarf was enough to make this outfit interesting and classy.

It's time for something especially important now that summer has finally come & is here to stay... beachwear. Hanna is wearing a polka dot swimsuit and heart-shaped sunglasses. I love those, I bought a pair of white ones right after they became fashionable!

Ladies and gentlemen, I saved the best for last... This is definitely one of my favourite photos of Hanna. I love her hair, make-up, pose, outfit... everything. As you can see, she's wearing a polka dot shirt paired with ripped fishnet stockings.. again. The most incredible thing about this photo are her shoes. Jeffrey Campbell is a shoe genius and, as Hanna said on her blog recently, everything he creates is to die for! Prices are the greatest reality check though- roughly $150 per pair. However, I just want you to know that I will get hold of at least one pair of Jeffrey Campbell shoes, sooner or later... that would make my life complete.

What do you think about Hanna's style? What are your favourite/least favourite outfits? Maybe there are some other ones worth mentioning?
Don't forget to vote for the next fashion icon!
