Small brands you should check out

   I am almost always on Instagram, so sometimes I look around for interesting brands or influencers. These are some brands that I find interesting and most of them are eco-friendly and sustainable. They are mostly jewelry brands, but there are also some clothing and accessories ones. So, let’s start:

  1 Attire– one of my favorite influencers created this brand very recently, so you should definitely check it out. It’s eco-friendly, ethical, zero polyester brand, and the production is based in Portugal and Italy. I will put the links to both the brand and the founder, but before I want to tell you a bit about what and why Xenia, the founder of Attire, decided to start this brand. She is a pretty famous influencer, she goes to all sorts of events, Fashion Weeks, etc. But she said she felt the need to do something more meaningful. Also, she didn’t really like the way other big brands produce the clothes. So she decided to do a totally transparent brand, where you know what you pay for, where the materials come from and how they are created. I sincerely respect her and how she chose to run this business. I am looking forward to buying an item from her collection. If you want to find out more about the brand and Xenia and/or her brand, in the about section on the Attire website, she explains on a deeper level   and in a more detailed way about everything I just told you.

    2 Revived Uk– the way this brand works is: they find these really rare vintage designer pieces, which they use to create new,sustainable and high quality jewelry. The only downside to this is that, because these designer pieces are so expensive, they are also really limited. I really like the fact that they create these necklaces that make you feel like you just bought something from that really famous brand and you are literally wearing a piece of history. That one little keychain that they turned into a necklace could have belonged to anyone and even if you don’t know it, it carries a story and I think that is amazing and unique. I am going to leave the link to their website and Instagram below.

   3 Pura Vida Bracelets– this isn’t really a small business because it has grown a lot in the last year or so, but I think it’s a great brand and I found the story behind it very interesting.It all started when the two founders of this brand went on a trip to Costa Rica and found two locals, who were making these very colorful bracelets, but who also were really struggling financially. So Griffin and Paul(the founders of Pura Vida) asked for 400 bracelets they can take back to San Diego. In San Diego, they went to a shop and asked to sell their bracelets there. They sold so fast, that Paul and Griffin decided to make this into a business. So now, they support over 800 artisanals all around the globe by selling their work online and they also opened a few shops around the world where they sell all of their designs. This is one of my favorite brands to support, so if you can’t buy from them, just share it. I will also put their links below.

   4 Naked Wolfe– this brand was created by a family of six where two of the siblings are the creative directors. They are a footwear brand, founded because they felt there was a gap in the footwear market. So they created on-trend fashion styles and a luxury-designer quality but at an affordable price. They work so that they can put new designs out every week and their shoes are hand-made in specialized production facilities. I think this could become one of the really popular brands. Their designs are so pretty and I really want to buy a pair. As you got used to by now, I’m gonna put the links below.

5 styling tips everyone should know

5 styling tips everyone should know

5 styling tips everyone should know 

Hi guys, we are going to talk about some styling tips for a more put together/fashionable outfit.

 1. If you want to wear a baggy shirt make sure you wear either skinny jeans, leggings or shorts, and vice versa, baggy pants with a tight shirt, tank top or T-shirt. Don’t wear both baggy shirts and baggy pants.  

2. Try to match your bag to your shoes or belt, rather than to your clothes. It looks much cleaner and put together. 

3. If you want to go for a monochromatic look, try to match different shades of that colors, not the same color in the same shade. Trust me, it’s gonna look way better. (this doesn’t apply if you want to do an all whit or all black outfit) 

4. Try combining opposite colors like orange and purple or pink and blue etc. 

5. For a more stylish look, style a neutral outfit with some colorful accessories. 

Hope this helped, if you know any other tips leave them in the comment section. Have a beautiful day.

Today, in the lesser known designer series, we have Charles&Keith. I stumbled upon them on my explore page on instagram and I was very intrigued by their designs. This brand has a lot of trendy accessories and footwear.

They used to work in their parents’ shoe shop, called ‘Ang Mo Kio’. Charles is the Founder, while Keith is Founder and Chief Executive. Teir executive director is Fong Shee Beng.

Fashion week outfits

I’ve been scrolling on Pinterest for some outfit ideas when I stumbled apon some fashion week outfits, so I thought that I could write a blog post about it. So I searched for more fashion week outfits and I chose the ones I liked most and the ones that I would like to try.

1.

I really liked the casualness of this outfit and how it still looks more or less sophisticated.

2.

The colours here are just so pretty and i think the contrast with the yellow looks really good. The only thing I don’t really like are the shoes. I don’t know why, they’re just not my style, I guess.

3.

I LOVE the dress/skirt she is using. The combination of textures looks great and I am in love with her bag. The Dior saddle bag is one of my favorite bags ever.

4.

I absolutley adore the boots and the coat she is using. I can’t really tell what she is wearing under the coat, but from what I can see it looks really good.

5.

The mint green is so lovely, I love the berret on her head and the pants are pretty.

6.

This type of pants is really growing on me. They just look really good with T-shirts and boots or with a lace top and heels. They’re very versatile and can be worn for any ocassion.

7.

I love everything with a belt on the waist, and this outfit is so well accesoriced.

Hope you enjoyed my post. If you did leave a like and consider following for more fashion content. If you have any sugestions for more posts, leave a comment.

My favorite backpacks

I’ve had an passion for bags and shoes for almost 4 years. And I’ve started collecting them 3 years ago. Today I am going to show you and review my two absolute favorite backpacks.

Chanel Graffiti backpack

I got this backpack from my aunt as a gift, I think 4 years ago. I’ve been using it a LOT since I got it. I absolutely love it. It fits a ton of stuff and it’s a great travel bag. You can also wear it with so many things. I would 100% recommend it.

I am not sure how much it costs, also because it’s pretty old.

Longchamp le pliage nylon backpack

I got this backpack in an airport in Munchen. I always wanted a Longhamp bag, but then i decided I would get more use out of the backpack. I believe this is the new collection. I don’t have it for a long time, I have it since December 2019. But I have used it literally everyday since. It looks kinda small, but it actually fits a ton of stuff. Also the material is really resistant to rain and dirt.

I paid around 85 euros for it. It’s worth every penny.

Let me know what your favorite bag is in the comment section. Have a great day!

XOXO, Delayla
