There is a growing trend toward vintage fashion and vintage designs and I am in love with that! I have always found inspiration in the past and in this rapidly growing technological age sometimes the past’s simplicity is something I long for or even crave. Life is so fast paced that sometimes I just want to get away from it all and have a “tea party”, a moment of peace and tranquility apart from the hectic day to day where I can dress up, look pretty and enjoy time with people I love. This thought is what inspired me to curate the following list of items for a perfect summer tea party. Enjoy! ☺

Think seaside tea party in this dress by fashionloft. Keep cool on a hot summer's day.

For a touch of simple glamour add this lovely necklace to that dress and prepare for a beautiful party by the sea.

Want to really be vintage for your tea party? Then this "Late for Tea" dress by Makool is perfect for you!

Sublty adorn your ears for drinking some iced tea by the sea with these earrings from By Jodi.

Audrey Tatou in Coco Before Chanel

Timeless, icon of fashion, ahead of her time, these are all used to describe Coco Chanel. I had the great pleasure of viewing the movie Coco Avant Chanel (Coco Before Chanel in English) last night and fell in love all over again with the designer. The story of how she became this long-lasting legacy in fashion is not without hardship, but she rises above it so elegantly and thus begins her adventure into what becomes the Chanel brand which still stands for simple sophistication. Below I share with you some of my favorite images from the film and of the real Coco herself. Enjoy.

Why Fashion…

Ever since I can remember, fashion has been a huge part of my life. I remember looking through my mother’s magazines and then turning 13 and getting my very first teen fashion magazine in the mail. It has been a passion in the making all my life. As a little girl I always drew fancy ball gowns and gave them new and exciting colors and textures because I had a knack for the beautiful things in life. So, in short, this newly revamped blog is a journal or rather “pin board” of sorts to share my favorite new and vintage pieces by my favorite designers and by up and coming designers the world over. I hope you enjoy them as well!

What am I loving this season? Why, Whites & Browns of course!
