Winter Essentials:

MFW: Hanita – Fall 2017/18 collection

Another collection I checked at Milan Fashion Week was from the italian brand Hanita, which has created a a Fall/Winter collection punctuated by black, red and pink millennial as the main colors of this season. A brand that seeks to keep alive the made in Italy, creating a 100% Italian product.

Hanita - Fall 2017 / 18

A young and modern winter was created for this new season of Hanita, the Italian brand was created in 2008 and they always care about having great quality materials and the final garments.

With a presentation at the Grand Hotel et Milan in the Fashion Quadrangle here in Milan, Hanita showed pieces for day and night in this edition of MFW.

Attention to the detail that the fur used in this collection is ecological fur, (as in the leopard coat that opened this post) which is not very common to see at the Milan Fashion Week collections.

Velvet also showed that the fabric that was in fashion since the previous winter, continues to be trendy another season.

Light tones like millennial pink make this collection elegant and super modern:

One of my favorite pieces of the collection, this beautiful pink skirt:

• Le Spose di Carlo Pignatelli – 2018 Collection

Romantic Wedding dress

With a collection of beautiful and very elegant wedding dresses, most designs focus on embroidery and lace on the bodice of the dress, although it also brings entire models in lace.

Carlo Pignatelli’s collection is very delicate and feminine, ideal for brides who look for more romantic and delicate wedding dresses.

Carlo Pignatelli became known worldwide for his men’s fashion for weddings and formal parties, currently he also creates a fashionable female and bridal party collection (with the Fiorinda collection and another couture collection for brides), as well as accessories.

A curiosity about the Italian designer: in 1995, he created the uniform of the Juventus football team, showing its versatility in fashion from sports fashion to couture for brides.

 

Romantic Wedding dresses MFW 2018

The designer’s delicate wedding dresses feature bandeau designs to dresses thin straps and even long sleeve dress designs for the various bridal and wedding styles.

For the brides that are looking for short wedding dresses, they are also available in the collection, for those who chose a more informal wedding or for who just needs a short white dress for simple notary wedding.

3 Pieces every woman should own (Zanstyle / Stylebest)

3 Pieces every woman should own

Have you ever stop to think about what pieces every woman should own in her wardrobe? Those that are basic and necessary for our daily life, whether to work, study or to take a walk around on a day off.

I have picked 3 pieces that every woman needs to have in her wardrobe in partnership with Zanstyle  and the Stylebest site, those pieces are always useful to have in your wardrobe and they are never enough.

 

1. Black dress

A black dress is essential in any woman’s wardrobe, regardless of your style, there’s always a black dress for you. Whether it’s for work or for a night out, the little black dress is that must-have piece in every woman’s wardrobe.

The cool thing is to have at least one black dress like this one that picked, because it’s a little black dress that you can wear for work, to a dinner or even for a night out.

It can dress it up or down if you wear it with different accessories, for example: wear it with ballet flats for work, or dress it up with a gorgeous pair of high heels and amazing accessories! Go for a maxi necklace, make-up and hair and you’re done! Check out other models of black dresses on Stylebest.

 

2. White T-shirt

How to not own at least one white T-shirt in the closet? That’s an incredibly versatile piece that you can wear in an outfit with a super cool jeans, or dress it up with a lovely skirt in more elegant and super feminine look.

To make it more elegant, wear your white T-shirt with silver or golden accessories, or even with colored ones to bring some color into your outfit.

 

3. Denim pants

And you can not miss those jeans! Another piece of clothing I also find it so versatile, because it can be worn in a more casual look with a T-shirt and a pair of sneakers, or in more elegant look with a silk blouse, powerful accessories and high heels!

The pieces that illustrate this post are from the Stylebest site, some from the Zanstyle line, a line part of the website that has basic pieces with super cool prices, so you can always have them in your wardrobe.

Review: Soft Clean Powder – Arkana Skincare

One brand that I met at Cosmoprof was Arkana, a polish skincare brand that I have been enjoying a lot lately. The Soft Clean Powder from Arkana was my favorite product from this brand, because it’s a facial cleanser that is in powder texture, it’s so cool!

Check my full review on the Soft Clean Powder from Arkana, a skincare product I really liked, you can also watch a video where I show this and other products from this beauty brand.

 

•Soft Clean Powder from Arkana:

Arkana Soft Clean Powder Review

It became my favorite product from Arkana and it’s also the one from this brand I was the most excited to try and do I tell you, it actually lived up to the expectations.

It has the different kind of product feeling that I love, but I also really like the quality of this facial cleanser. When in contact with water, it gets a soft texture that cleans my face well. It’s just a cleanser, it won’t remove makeup, so don’t forget to remove your makeup before this step.

This product is recommended for sensitive and delicate skin, as well as irritated skin by chemical peel treatments or excessive sun exposure. It’s also hypoallergenic.

 

Arkana Soft Clean Powder Review

 

The Soft Clean Powder has many active ingredients such as amino-acid, aloe vera, Allantoin (hydrates, smoothes and removes dead cells), Salicylic Acid (clears and unclog pores, exfoliates dead cells and it has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties), lemon extract (rich in natural vitamin C and with antioxidant qualities) and cornstarch (that absorbs the excess of sebum and mattifies the skin, being adequate also for oily skin).

It leaves my skin soft and smooth, I have oily skin and it doesn’t make my skin oily, but it also doesn’t dry it out, but I always apply a moisturizer day and night after washing my face so I can get it moistened and hydrated even after using products for oily skin (oily skin also needs hydration).

 

The coolest thing about this product is that it’s in powder! I always wanted to try a facial powder cleanser since I’ve heard about them a few years ago from asian brands, but I didn’t have my hand on any before the Soft Clean Powder from Arkana. Here’s how the texture looks like when dry:

Soft clean powder from Arkana

When you have wet hands and then get a bit of the powder on your hands, it transforms the powder texture into a foam/liquid kind of texture that’s easy to apply and very comfortable. It’s also a very no-mess kind of product.

You can see better this texture on my video review of the Arkana skincare products I had tried, the Soft Clean Powder is the first one I talk about on the video:

 

Another interesting fact about the Soft Clean Powder from Arkana is that since it’s in a powder texture, I love to take it when I’m traveling, because it’s much easier to carry than a liquid facial cleanser would be.


Destroyed jeans outfit

And the destroyed jeans have not got me tired yet, I love to create a slightly tidier look with basic T-shirt, destroyed jeans and add more luxurious accessories, as this golden court shoes with jewelry. The combination takes the basics of this look and gives a more of a chic look.

Destroyed jeans outfit

Do you know when you start choosing the look by the shoes, does anyone else does it? I do this all the time. And when I bought this pair of shoes, even though it was all decorated pair, I had already imagined it with a look with destroyed jeans and a simple t-shirt, so the focus would be on this beautiful pair of shoes.

 

Jeans outfit

To complete this outfit, several accessories like this vintage necklace, the wooden earrings are from Monili di Legno (a brazilian brand that create accessories with wood) and colored bracelets to bring some color to my outfit.
