Best Way To Shop On A Budget!

Hey guys! It’s that time of the year again were people start thinking to make the changeover in their wardrobe from summer to autumn and maybe also wintery clothes anndd also when the weather starts going crazy 😅! In this post I’ll tell you the best way (for me) to shop on a budget!

The first thing you should do if you’re making the changeover now is remove all the summery items from your wardrobe, like that you’ll have a better idea to what you have and what you need to get. After that is done make a list of what you have, ideally you should already own some sweatshirts, hoodies, hooded jackets and some comfortable joggers from the previous year. 

 

After you settle your wardrobe it’s time to start topping it! Decide if you wish to buy locally or online shopping. I personally prefer purchasing the first batch online and to check a couple of sites before actually buying them. I usually buy specific items when I’m shopping locally. 

There are plenty of online shopping websites such as Asos, Boohoo, NewChic and the latest addition was Joom. Due to its very cheap prices people might think that the material will be terrible but it might not be the case. I bought 2 pair of trousers lately and I’m also thinking to review these trousers in the coming blog post! If you guys want to see this post, make sure to let me know! 

 

Before you bombard your shopping cart and fill it up with clothes, accessories, shoes or whatever you put in it, always make sure to think MONEY and NEED wise! Don’t go buying stuff that you don’t need or just for fun. Remember that you worked for that money it didn’t come from nothing. Waste of money will also lead to waste of space in your wardrobe so be wise! 

And the last part of this post is go and have fun styling yourself some new looks for this years autumn! Don’t be afraid to try out some different looks or items, be confident in wearing what you want. 

See ya next time!

Beach Wedding Look + Dress Design!

Hey guys! I hope you’re all well! It’s been a while since I showcased a dress designed by myself. Months in dating Kaya she told me that we were invited for a family beach wedding and I asked her if she wanted me to design a dress for her.

She immediately said yes and she gave me three tips on how she wanted the dress to be which were “Silk, Wine and with Slits”. A couple of days after I started working on this dress and she fell in love with the first design I made as apparently she kinda dreamt of that dress which also had a bonus add-on to what she requested….you’ll know later on in this post 😅 

Let me talk a bit about how I styled myself and then we finish with the dress (leave the best for last)! I wore a combination of Gagliardi and Asos. Basically everything was of Gagliardi, only the shoes were Asos 😅. Since I’m still like a “foreigner” in her family, I didn’t go with a jacket as it would have been too much but then again I didn’t want to be simple so I wore a gingham burgundy waistcoat over a white linen shirt and a pair of off white chinos!

To finish off my look I wore my brown Gagliardi bracelet and the only pair of loafers I own which are of Asos! I really need to buy myself a couple of new loafers, been like 2 years wearing this pair 😅 haha!

IMG_3075 2

Moving onto Kaya’s dress! Let me tell you the bonus part of the dress. I love adding that little something extra in my designs and when it comes to these type of dresses I love adding chains! Something small nothing too big but it gives a total different and more of an extra look! 

IMG_3088

When I design dresses I don’t just simply design it and that’s it, one of my aims is to make the women wearing it feel comfortable with herself, sexy and wanted. In short words, I want to make sure she attracts the eyes of many people and to also be unique! 

IMG_3082

I don’t just place the chains randomly neither but in specific places that will make it look more interesting and attract all the attention! As you could see I placed them in two different places, at the back and in between both slits and then matched silver accessories with them.

Like a week after the beach wedding we went around to shoot these photos and also made a short clip about both of our looks! Here is the outcome, I hope you guys like it and it would be great if you could share this! ❤️

 

Every feedbacks and shares are all appreciated! This is just a small part of what might be my future career so you can imagine how much it means to me! ❤️

See ya next time!

Fashion In Movies!

Fashion is growing with a fast pace which is why sometimes it gets hard to keep up with, whether it’s in musicals, music videos, movies or anything were fashion can make part of! More materials are being discovered and mixed with different materials making a unique garment,  a lot of young aspiring designers are working hard to take their fashion designing level up a notch  to keep up with the worlds famous designers.

At the moment we are seeing a lot of unique and brilliant fashion styling in movies. Designers are really working hard to show what they are capable of! Lately I saw two movies which when it comes to fashion, the designs were truly amazing, these are “The Greatest Showman” and “Black Panther”.

“The Greatest Showman”

From the cover photo of this movie we can immediately see that there will be a strong focus on how the actors were styled! Here is what I’m talking about!

greatest_showman_cover-660x330.jpg

The first thing that the eyes look at is at one of the main actors which is Hugh Jackman and his amazing outfit portraying a modern version of the typical outfit for this type of character!

The other look that attracts the eyes is the one of Rebecca Ferguson (Jenny Lind). Her first look was the most astonishing one. She was styled with a magnificent evening gown with the top part in a form of a jacket filled with peals forming some sort of design to make it richer! The gown then gets divided in two parts were you have the first layer cut in three quarters over the actual gown. This look is definitely a look of a queen!

“Black Panther”

The designers and stylists in this movie got CRAZY!! It started we an amazing start with the look of the “Black Panther” himself but then when we saw the look of the whole village I’m sure most of us if not everyone was left without words! Here is the look of the black panther!

After this masterpiece of a costume, many more came following it! The outfits that they wore while in the village are just amazing! The designer visioned the style and formed traditional and contemporary style into a whole collection that made the movie one of the most awaited and enjoyable movies of the year!

As you can see yourself, fashion plays a huge part in movies and the  designer of “Black Panther” definitely knew it! It also plays a huge part in basically every single thing; music videos, concerts, exhibitions, EVERYTHING! 

Fashion always had that main part in everything as fashion is not just clothes. It shows emotions, feelings, talent and what the mind has to offer! The styling itself can better how we see the object being displayed in front of us! It might sound silly to some but if you see a movie with bad fashion and styling you won’t like it as much as if it had better fashion and styling!

That’s all from this post! Hope you guys liked this, if you did and want to see more make sure to subscribe to my mailing list to keep yourself updated!

First Lookbook With Danyl!!🔥

*CAUTION; LIT POST BELOW* 🔥🔥🔥

Heeyy guysss!! I hope you’re doing great! After almost a year of talking and planning ahead of us my pal Danyl and I finally worked on something together!

We met in October if I’m not mistaken, it’s when school starts no? My old ass went back to school last year and there is where I met the man himself! We immediately became great friends and started planning ahead of us but then I dropped school and kept on chasing my dreams.

A time were I wanted to do more than I already do and work harder in promoting different fashion and confidence in Malta, hit me hard and I went on someone that I knew that had the same push and energy like me and here is the outcome! 

IMG_0017.jpg

We decided to go for this modern/vintage look in a modern location to make sure to get the contrast we wanted! We chose certain items that really took out the vintage out from the outfit. 

Our aim was to start strong and see what you guys think about us working together and also about what we can manage to bring you guys! A simple comment for us means a lot! It means support and push to do more and more, to get better and brainstorm better ideas to promote fashion!

Danyl and I might not have the same style, to be honest it’s literally different as Danyl is all out streetstyle and hypebeast when on the other hand I’m more of an all rounder, smart casual person with a difference that I love trying out different styles! What we have the same is the push to promote fashion here in Malta and our future plans, that’s what united us! 

I think I have said enough about how we met and our vision haha! 

Guys go check out this very first lookbook we worked on! Don’t forget to leave a comment somewhere either here or on my page or come message us! Also SHARE SHARE SHARE!!!! ❤️ We are already planning on something great ahead which you will….. 😅 I’ll tell you later! 

In the mean time check out our video!!! 

A huge thank you goes to Ian Bray and my girl Kaya Buhagiar for the amazing work they did! Lastly don’t forget to subscribe to DANYL’S YOUTUBE CHANNEL!

Fedora X Tank Top!

IMG_1997IMG_2025 2IMG_2022

Going back to last month, I made up this cool summer style! For this summer I wanted to try out some new and different styles ( As usual 😅 )! Since mustard is a hit this year, I had to grab something of that colour! 

I also got something that I have been for it for YEARS but never found the perfect fit! 😓 Thanks to Asos I finally found my match! I’m talking about the fedora hat I’m wearing which my dear lady doesn’t like at all and wants me to burn it 😅 as she says it’s not me haha!

What do you guys think of this fedora hat on me?

Finishing this look, I rolled up my jeans to show more the ripped part at the end. At first I thought it will look strange but ended up loving it! 

What do you guys think of this look?

See ya next time!

Fashion Week 2018: The Gagliardi Show!

HEEEEYYYYYYY!! It’s been a while you guys!! I haven’t had any chancee to write any posts had a bit of a rough time at work and also some stress came saying hi 🤦🏼‍♂️. ANYHOW I’m here now and I’m finally writing this post!

Another year and another missed week of outstanding fashion creations and great vibes. I can say that this is one of the best and saddest weeks for me as I basically lose it all due to it’s held in the months that we’re very very busy so I can’t take any leave to attend to these shows as I would need to do everything in a hurry if I go after work 😓 

I definitely can’t miss the Gagliardi show, it’s one of the most shows I look for in this week! With every single piece that goes out, my heart started running so fast that I couldn’t stop it and I started doing that “dumb” smile haha that kind of smile that I have never seen anything like it before!

Let me start showing you some of the looks that were showcased in this show and then I’ll continue talking later!! The following shots are taken by Steven Muliett.

Which of these looks do you guys mostly like?!

This years show was very different for me. I got the chance to connect with more models that walked for Gagliardi and also the chance to style the models (Not for the show)! Seeing them coming in the shop, talking with them about modelling, showing them some of my photos and hearing feedback from them was just amazing! 

As they walked I supported them and after the show I also engaged with them on how the show and they were amazing and also complimenting me on how I was dressed, BASICALLY I WAS HIGH UP IN THE SKY ALL NIGHT!!

This year I was also accompanied by my beautiful girl Kaya, which was her very first fashion week show she ever attended. Let me tell you from now, we nailed it!
Check out how we looked!

What do you guys think of our look?
Isn’t she beautiful or is she? ❤️

Moving to another set of looks! The two following sets of shots are taken by Gordon Formosa from Go Raw Photography!

Which look of this set did you mostly like?!

The feeling of the show, the styles, the models, the energy the crowd had and most especially the hard work from the stylists, designers and management of Gagliardi truly made an unforgettable night! Last years show was great but this one was SUPER!

Here comes the second and last set of styles! 


Which look of this set did you mostly like?!

As the fashion week itself came to an end so has this blog post! Huge well done to everyone especially to the models I knew and also got to meet, Neil Scerri, Omar Farrugia, James Spiteri Staines, Jean Paul Farrugia and last but not least, the award winning Mister World Malta Daryl Azzopardi!

Ending all of this with the photo of the brain and hard work behind Gagliardi, Mr Sam Borg!

Adidas X Parley Campaign against Plastic Pollution!

Hey guys! How have you been doing lately? I hope everything is great! Currently I’m passing during one of the worst time of the year you can say, as  work gets harder due to many occasions and people ALWAYS leave it till the very end to decide to buy a suit, why? hahaha!!

Anyyhooowww let’s not get you bored with my work struggle, lately I have been coming across news regarding a new campaign against pollution but I didn’t take notice of it due to being very busy and barely noticing anything online but I decided to search about it. What I knew was that it had to do with Adidas and nothing else but I went through a lot of searches and discovered that Adidas have teamed up with Parley which is and I quote 

“PARLEY IS THE SPACE WHERE CREATORS, THINKERS, AND LEADERS COME TOGETHER TO RAISE AWARENESS FOR THE BEAUTY AND FRAGILITY OF OUR OCEANS AND COLLABORATE ON PROJECTS THAT CAN END THEIR DESTRUCTION.”

Only that paragraph is enough to show you how much Parley is amazing! To make it more amazing they teamed up with Adidas to create a super new collection!

“Adidas says and I quote WE ARE WORKING WITH PARLEY TO PREVENT PLASTIC FROM ENTERING OUR OCEANS AND TO TRANSFORM IT INTO HIGH-PERFORMANCE SPORTSWEAR. SPINNING THE PROBLEM INTO A SOLUTION. THE THREAT INTO THREAD.” #ADIDASPARLEY

They called the shoes “UltraBoost Parley” which is made from up-cycled waste from beaches and coastal communities that is intercepted before it reaches the ocean! 

Check out some of the designs they made for both men and women!

Men Creations;

This NMD_CS1 Parley Primeknit shoes is my most favourite from this collection! The colour, the design, the material, the shape ALL OF IT IS AMAZING!!

 

Women Creations;

Ultraboost_X_Parley_Shoes_Grey_DB0641_04_standard-2
This one is the same as the men’s as this is the main piece of the collection.

Ultraboost_Parley_Shoes_Black_BB6264_04_standardUltraboost_Parley_Shoes_Blue_CQ1708_04_standard

For the women’s collection they decided to put more colour in the shoes which I associate this last shoes with the colour of the ocean and corals! 

I believe that this movement will make a huge impact as the ocean is one of the most important things that we as humans need! The ocean might separate us as a country but it connects us as people! It gives us beautiful lakes and water streams were we can enjoy ourselves with people we love and no-one wants to sit down near a water stream seeing it filled with plastic pollution!! 

To end this post I’m going to ask you for two things and they are very simple! Go to this link right here PARLEYget to know more about the cause and if you scroll down you will find “Take The Pledge” go ahead and take it! 

The second one is, don’t forget to share this post with your friends to share this movement! Let’s give a helping hand as well!

I took the pledge, will you?

MY FIRST TIMBERLAND RUNNERS!!!

HEY YOU GUYS!! Been a while since I wrote a great blog post, been so so busy with work since I returned to working full time now it takes a lot of my time! I hope you guys are doing well! 

31384180_1902335253172007_8862935104314408960_n.jpg

I kinda spoiled this post with the title already haha but I am really hyped I got my hands on these beauties! I had my eyes on Timberland’s shoes for years but I never really thought of getting one myself as I’m not much a type of boots person although I really want to get my hands on a pair of Chelsea boots but the style is very different.

When I saw that Timberland launched their first pair of runners for this year I went crazy! The design is super modern, colours blend amazing with multiple outfits and comfortability is AMAZING!! 

31369078_1902335306505335_7482542193157079040_n

The design of these kicks is quite lovely! The mixture of the material is very interesting, the sole design is amazing, the lace design is also very interesting and finally everything ends up in one super comfortable runners!

So far I have only wore them on a very casual look and they looked great, I am thinking of putting them up a notch and style them a bit smarter and see what I manage to create! I’m sure I’ll manage to work something out 😅!

Go check out Urban Jungle Malta and try on this pair of runners!

Something new that you guys might not know, I have been working on making some bracelets! The bracelet I’m wearing in these photos is one of the best ones I made so far and more to come! My idea about this is to start building my brand starting very small from jewellery! I really love bracelets and I’ve always wanted to get myself bracelets therefor now I’m making my own bracelets! 

What do you guys think of this idea? It would be great to hear what you think!!

See ya next time!
