Sequins during the day.


T-G-I-F ! 

I wanted to glow on a gloomy day. Even if the sky was grey, I was in the mood of wearing a sequins skirt. 

Fashion has to be fun and in my opinion, we should play more often with different textures & styles. Mix, match & try!

Nail the Culottes.




Do you start being used to see "Culottes" ? I mean, we all need a moment to accept (or not) a trend. I feel good with this style of outfit which is the kind of "perfect" look for a meeting day. I feel comfortable and elegant without having to wear a skirt. The Culottes are your BIG alternative. 

What I love with those short pants is that, you can go very chic or straight on the opposite with a boho style. It all depends with what you decide to wear them. I paired it with a crop top and a pair of heels which is for me my favorite option.

Now that the weekend is over, it's time to start a new week and by the same occasion a new month! September is going to be an amazing month for me with events abroad planned. You already know how much I love traveling and nothing make me happier than doing it for the blog! I would have never expected to be able to do these kind of things and I have to thank all of you without whom none of this would happen! I smile because I love sharing my passion on bangbangblond. 

I received this pair of Stan Smith from Adidas a few weeks ago and I love the style of them.  Those legendary sneakers are still as cool as in the 70's. Did you know that Stan Smith was one of the best tennis players in the 70's and sponsored by Adidas? Lucky him, he got his name on the coolest kick of the world with 20 millions pairs sold in the world!

With the 70's movement in force, I paired my kicks with a maxi button-front denim skirt. I added a white basic tee as I love matching dark denim with white.

Smoky

Daytime vs night out smoky eye. Most of you think that doing a smoky eye is hard to achieve and not appropriate for daytime, I will convince you that you are wrong! For a daytime appropriate smoky eye, you have to keep things easy and with lighter tons of eyeshadow. I created those look with the new smoky naked palette from Urban Decay which will be launching tomorrow morning in Switzerland. Are you guys ready? You will have all the essentials you need for a perfect smoky eye with a brush which will make it perfect!

To create a day-time look, you only need 2 eyeshadow colors (at least) and a mascara, that's it! Regarding the lips, I would keep it simple with a shiny gloss or a nude lipstick. 

For the Night-out look, go wild, go dark! I also only used 2 eyeshadow colors and created the base with a black pencil to make sure the smoky will be intense and dark. I blended the pencil on my eyelid with a brush and then applied the black eyeshadow. The main things you have to keep in mind is blend, blend blend and blend! That's how you will get your smoky eye smooth. Don't be afraid to wear dark lips for the night. I especially love wearing lipsticks and I wear on those pictures the new Matte Urban Decay lipstick named "Blackmail". 

You don't have to be a professional to create those looks, I made them by myself and I am not at all a smoky eye pro!
