Experts Weigh In: What You Should Really Get Him For the Holidays

Conjuring up a stellar gift idea for the man in your life is no easy feat, which is why we called upon five of the most stylish gents in the world to share their perfect present picks. 

How Often Should You REALLY Wash Your Jeans?

When it comes to caring for your denim, you probably fall into one of two camps: You’re either all for rinse, cycle, and repeat, or against washing in general. Whichever camp you’re part of, we thought it’d be helpful to find out when—and when not to—wash the wardrobe essential, so we took our questions straight to J Brand’s head of design, Mary Bruno. The denim guru spilled her insider tips on how to properly preserve the life span of jeans.

The Glamourai Gift Guide

Ever since we shot this fashion story to celebrate the launch of Lord & Taylor’s cool second-floor concept store, Birdcage has been our go-to trove for great gifts and under-the-radar designer surprises. That’s why, this holiday season, we’re teaming up with them once again to bring you our edit of the best Birdcage treasures for everyone on your list!

Click the products inside each photo to shop this gift guide directly.

FOR THE HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTEST: Give her the equipment to stave off a holiday hosting hangover and pamper herself the next day. It’s delightful to receive a little white candle, hand soap in a chic dish, roll-on perfume and stress-free tea.

FOR HER: Be it mom, grandma or a darling friend, every gal enjoys finding her stocking full of TLC. We’re tickled to share Mullein & Sparrow’s body oil, bath salts, and body exfoliant with the ladies in our life.

FOR HIM: Guys are so hard to shop for, but you can’t go wrong with A Peace Treaty’s buffalo check scarf, Joya’s gunpowder green tea candle, or a stiff glass of Mr. Grey tea.

FOR YOUR FAVORITE COWORKER: Office-wide Secret Santas can be a tricky proposition, whether you adore your coworkers or not! Wade that murky mire effortlessly by choosing from an elegant desk calendar, Fig & Bella’s fawnlike-speckled scarf, or one of Joya’s three wick candle or small candles.

FOR YOUR SWEET NIECE OR LITTLE SISTER: We  most enjoy spoiling the young ladies in our lives this time of year. Stuff a cute clutch with an array of nail polishes (deep red, glossy red, gold, soft pink, rose gold, silver) and a pretty pink candle.

FOR YOUR BFF: Frends headphones are basically jewelry ~ but equipped with legit sound quality! Pair them with this cool Corners4 iPhone case and you’ve got a gift any friend will love. 

FOR YOURSELF! Let’s be honest, a lot of ‘one for you, two for me’ happens this time of year; don’t try to fight it! On table from left: Ela Rae lariat necklace, pendant necklace, beaded necklace; on right hand: Ela Rae hand chain with A Peace Treaty’s turquoise and gold rings; on left hand: Ela Rae hand chain, A Peace Treaty large turquoise ring

Most importantly, make sure to pick up a pack of thank you notes (below), because gratitude is the greatest gift you can give, to loved ones and to yourself. Lead with love, and make sure to let your friends and family know how much you care, in ways physical and immaterial, every chance you can take.

Retrospectiva 2014: Momento Kardashian

Essa família é muito unida, e também muito ouriçada… Preciso nem explicar porque a Kardashian family merece post exclusivo no blog, de TANTO que falo deles, nada mais justo do que reservar uma categoria exclusiva na nossa retrô.
Esse ano foi O ano da família! Muitos acontecimentos, casos e fofocas e, pra completar, durante esse post, acabou de sair a notícia que Kourtney Kardashian acabou de parir (será que ela segurou puxou novamente?) seu terceiro filho, que nasce no exatamente 5 anos depois do Mason, ou seja, muita sinkronia!
E se ano passado o K-Moment ficou por conta da transformação da Khloé, esse ano analisemos os fatos e votemos no que de tão Kardashian aconteceu nesse mundo Kardashian :)

Which Vintage Levi's Jeans Cut Is the Most Flattering for YOUR Body?

You know your dream pair of vintage jeans are out there—the kind that would make you do a double take at your own rear, that have a perfect washed-out fade, and give off a ridiculously cool-girl vibe. But alas, sourcing them is frustratingly elusive. Since some of the best vintage pairs are made by Levi’s, we figured we’d go straight to the source to help make your quest just a bit easier. We talked to Levi’s Global Vice President of Women's Design, Jill Guenza, to find out which cut is the most flattering for different body types. This way, when searching for your own pair, you can come armed with your preferred cut in mind, say 505, which will hopefully make it simpler to weed through all the options, and locate your perfect pair. Since there are so many cuts out there, we kept it straightforward, and limited it to two easily findable Levi’s styles.

Paris Fashion Week SS 2015….Hedvig

Hedvig Opshaug of Northern Light blog, before Roland Mouret, Paris, September 2014.
Long live the cape/poncho/blanket coat for lazy weekends. 
Recreate Hedvig’s look (kind of):
Cape: Burberry Prorsum Thistle motif blanket poncho, Roberto Cavalli leather-trimmed wool-tweed coat, Topshop striped Tape Edge cape, Oasis cape scarf, ASOS Reversible cape, or Club Monaco Angelica poncho


Good morning, Everyone! I hope your weekend is going great so far! 

As I was trying to figure out what to wear to a dinner with friends last night, I came across  this beautiful teal StyleStalker jacket I got specifically for an event coming up in a few weeks and just  couldn’t resist wearing it a bit earlier:) As I have mentioned before, most of the time my outfits begin with a single anchor piece and once I figure out what it is, everything magically falls into place:) 

Since last night’s dinner was supposed to be a somewhat dressier affair, I decided to step it up a notch with my make up and forgo my usual no-eyeshadow-cat-liner eye make up and rosy lips in favor of a more dramatic sparkly eyes and shimmery copper lips. 

To achieve this look I used Estee Lauder eye palette in Batik Sun, which is technically speaking a Summer color palette, but I like it so much, I use it year round. This is my third one, and honestly, I will continue buying it for as long as I can. The gold shade is one of my favorites and is the one I use the most. Aside from it’s primary purpose, it also works great as a highlighter when applied along cheek bones, on the bridge of the nose and on cupid’s bow. 

Here is what I did to achieve this look:

Step 1: After applying an eye primer, I used the gold shade all over my lids to browbone. 

Step 2: Next, I blended the darker brown shade in the crease.

Step 3: Using the lightest pale gold shade, I highlighted below the brow bone and inner corners of my eyes. 

Step 4: To add a bit of drama, I lined two thirds of my lower lash line with the sparkly teal shade making sure to smudge the edges for a slightly sultrier look. 

And voila! All done!

Voilà, as you may have noticed on Instagram, my new bag from href="" >my collaboration with Lancaster has been released and is now available ! I had a great time designing a bag from A to Z ….

Once again, Lancaster gave me free rein, and this bag, the «1983» is just like I’ve imagined it. Bubbled leather, golden zippers, a slouchy barrel bag with refined details …

It’s the first time you see it in real-life, and I sincerely hope you’ll like it !  xx

Each year after Christmas Day I usually share the pretty dress that I wore that day (see 2012 & 2013!), but as I’ll be travelling home on my tod this year without my trusty photographer, I figured I’d dress up and flounce around a little early as I fully plan on spending the rest of the month in a pair of cosy pyjamas, munching on chocolate and roast dinners.

So let’s say this is what I’d be wearing on a fictional Christmas Day – one where I definitely wouldn’t spill any gravy down my poofy Alexandra Grecco tulle skirt!

Once again I had the pleasure of teaming my outfit with a little Gucci number – this time their  Broadway suede clutch from their Holiday 2014 collection. I think I love this even more than the backpack I wore last week – a buttery soft blush suede, just big enough for my liking (tiny bags are my jam!)

Now, time to slip off those silver shoes and get comfy in time for Christmas! x

What I Wore…

Clutch Bag – Gucci Holiday 2014 | Ear Muffs – Topshop | Jumper – American Apparel | Skirt – Alexandra Grecco | Shoes – ASOS

Plaid & Turtleneck

I have to admit that I have been wanting to wear this look for months and months…I thought about it in the middle of the summer (when I was wearing these pants a lot) but obviously it was always too hot for it. However, last week we got a cold front…and it was perfect!! The turtleneck sweater is so versatile but at the same time it is a statement piece. The plaid pants are one of my favorite bottoms…I have featured them on the blog a couple of times but I have worn them SO often for lazy/comfy days. This is it for today because this is my last week of the semester and I’m a little behind (let’s blame the wedding planning…but I’m finally catching up) XOXO
Tengo que admitirles que tenía este look en mente desde el verano.. y a cada rato pensaba “no, no hace tanto frío como para usarlo”. Pero finalmente el clima ha estado perfecto en Miami.. esta semana nos sorprendió una corriente de frío. Este suéter cuello tortuga lo van a ver pronto en otro encantó porque es una pieza versátil pero igualmente llama mucho la atención. Los pantalones de tartán son unos de mis favoritos..son comodísimos, y ya tienen hasta su propio remix. Eso es todo por hoy porque ya estoy en la semana final de la uní y estoy un poquito atrasada…se podrán imaginar, todo por la boda  - pero ahí voy! :) ¡BESOS!

Agora temos Kate Spade em Recife!


Gente olha como Recife tá chiquérrimo! Já temos Prada, Gucci, Burberry, Valentino, Versace, GAP e agora é a vez do label americano Kate Spade aterrisar por aqui com uma loja pop up diferente de tudo que já vimos! O abre do “container chic” rolou essa semana lá no Shopping Rio Mar e todas que passaram pela festa ficaram doidas na seleção especial que eles trouxeram pra cá! É um mix com os hits da marca: tem acessórios, coisinhas fofas (tipo caneca, capinha de celular etc), óculos e roupas, tudo fofíssimo como só a Kate sabe fazer e a gente ama.

Eu me apaixonei pelas clutches divertidas, queria levar TODAS pra casa, principalmente as de livros! Para o evento, usei um vestido maravilhoso da marca (fiquei passada como a modelagem é boa, vestiu perfeito), clutch de maçãzinha fofa e scarpin Casadei.

  • Me contem o que acharam e não deixem de conferir a loja, que fica aberta só até meados de fevereiro – quem for de outras cidades pode comprar na loja virtual!

O apartamento da Jennifer Lopez em Nova York

4 jeitos de usar: Bolsa vermelha

Hoje o post traz uma das minhas peças favoritas do guarda-roupa, minha bolsa vermelha da 284! Apesar da cor marcante, essa bolsa combina com muitos looks, então é uma das que eu mais uso no dia-a-dia. Acho que bolsa colorida dá um pontinho de luz no visual, uso bastante.

Também sou fã do tamanho dessa bolsa, que é médio. Eu costumava usar bolsa grande, lembro de andar por aí até com um pouco de dor no ombro, mas felizmente mudei o hábito! Claro que as vezes sinto falta de algo, mas no geral cabe tudo que preciso, carteira, chaves, celular e alguns itens de necessaire espalhadinhos. Essa bolsa eu comprei há alguns anos, mas nesse ano encontrei a versão pretinha (lindaaaa!) no Enjoei!


Quero saber sua opinião: clique no seu look favorito!

Veja os looks ampliados e com detalhes:
1. Look do dia: Saia com listras
2. Look do dia: Couro e onça
3. Look do dia: Jeans e tênis
4. Look do dia: Colete de alfaiataria
