There are many terrific books on fashion, but with the birth of Instagram also came the birth of “new era” authors who wrote a book after their InstaFamous success. There are one too many bloggers who have attempted at publishing a book, and not everyone has succeeded, to say the least. My picks today include star winners that are worth your time regardless if you are a blogger, a style enthusiast or just a curious human being. INSTASTYLE Written by my absolute favorite influencer to date, Tezza. She has been
It has been a while since I posted some outfit inspirations, so I decided to share a few vibrant looks for this end of the year post. Maybe they will inspire you to try something new and different. With the Holiday season in full swing, there are plenty of reasons to get dressed up for. This first look I wore to a casual Holiday gathering. To keep it festive, but not over the top, I chose to pair a green pleated skirt with a bulky sweater in a red. The fun pattern on
It is that time of the year when we roll our sleeves up and get busy shopping. It can be a very daunting task with too many options to choose from. Rest assured this shopping guide has you covered on gifts for the females in your life that deserve only the best. If you are like me then shopping for gifts means shopping for yourself as well, doesn’t it? I put together a list of products that I would want to receive as gifts this season, and maybe this can
Today I am sharing one of the latest additions to my coat closet, a metallic trench coat. It is metallic all the way. It was love at first sight when I saw it at the recent Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Russia during their Pop-Up Shop. Metallic outwear is totally in and many US boutiques and online stores offer a great variety. It might not be the first item you gravitate towards when shopping for an outer layer. But this is why here at Oliamoda I hope to push and inspire
Fall is in full swing, but for us Californians, the process is much slower. It is almost November and only now the temperatures are dropping so we can layer up and experiment. It’s finally a good time to get our Winter closet in order with the heavier items. It can seem pretty intimidating to transition your looks into colder months. I get a lot of questions about whether or not to keep the summer dresses and skirts ready for use. So I put together a quick post that will inspire you to try
As mentioned in my previous posts, subscription boxes are not quite my thing. I am too much of a shopaholic and a control freak when it comes to picking items for myself. Yet I enjoy Rachel Zoe’s Box Of Style and here is why. Being a fierce fashionista she knows a thing or two about trending items. Rachel does a really nice job curating each of the box’s contents. It feels like Santa just left your doorstep every time you receive the box Opening presents is an exciting process. Opening a
Street Style Fashion has taken a turn Due-West. The Western boot trend has felt strong amongst major street style stars and influencers. This classic boot was first introduced on the runway by major fashion houses like Isabel Marant and Fendi. It is now prominently represented by global fashionistas and Country style beauties alike. A Western booty is defiantly a statement maker. A shoe like that has the power to instantly take your look to the next level. It will “upgrade” the last season’s skirt or item of clothing you are otherwise tired of wearing.
There is something empowering in seeing images of women that are juggling kids, jobs and relationships — and doing it in style. I consider myself one of these women, but like any other artist, I seek my dose of inspiration and motivation somewhere else. I put together a list of five stylish moms that are also entrepreneurs and are sure to get you inspired. Take a minute to scroll through their feed and get your dose of motivation. From city cool to laid-back bohemian style, these incredible women prove that
If you could see me right now, you would see me beaming with excitement – tomorrow we leave for Europe. This is one of the biggest trips we will do as a family. Andy is finally going to see Mother Russia in all its glory and there is no better time to do it but during the World Cup. Besides the World Cup and exploring all Moscow has to offer, we are also heading for an adult only vacation in Ibiza. This is a dream come true for both Andy
This dress may not be an item you specifically look for, but I cannot imagine living without it. I fell in love with the cut and color when I saw it on a hanger on a recent trip to Nordstrom to pick up a gift. One of those shopping trips that is planned solely for another reason, yet you walk out with a totally unrelated item. Often these type of shopping purchases turn out to provide one with a beloved piece. This dress hits the mark on so many levels.
