Social Keds

25 Jan

It looks like today it’s all about the Internet and Social Media! We can’t pass one day without searching something on Google, learn a bit on Wikipedia, writing on some blog or going social on Facebook, Twitter and its fellow wannabes…

All this plays an important role in our lives today, and despite our denial, you know it’s true! Come on… We all saw the protests against SOPA and PIPA some days ago, when the government decided it wanted to censor our beloved Internet!

Taking advantage of all this love and addiction Keds asked itself: if people love internet so much, wouldn’t they like it feature in their shoes?

And then… Internet just landed on your feet!

I think they should have one with all the TUMBLR rage faces… Just sayin’

Trends for the Average Men

23 Sep

Well girls, this post is entirely dedicated to boys. They also deserve to be aware of what’s fashionable at the moment. I haven’t seen a lot of posts for boys on other “girls’ blogs”. Of course there are a lot of fashion blogs and websites focused on men fashion, but as you all know, not all the boys like extravagant clothes or care about what’s going on on ALL the runways and specially, they are not interested in dressing golden trousers with a fancy cowboy hat and a pink purse (yes, I’m exaggerating! But you got the point)

Dear Boys,

If You:

  • Have a pretty normal life
  • Pass great time of your day at your work or school,
  • Don’t have much time to dress up in the morning
  • Don’t care at all about high fashion
  • Dress pretty much without light, because it’s fucking in the morning and you don’t want to open your eyes
  • Still ask your mom or girlfriends to help you with “shopping time”
  • Aim to look at the mirror and feel like “the only guy in the world” (that’s asking too much, stop acting like a girl!)
  • Want to look pretty, be fashionable (in an acceptable way) and hear someone saying “wow man, you look great today” or “love those shoes”

Well, then probably you will like this post. No more chat-chat, I’ll show you the latest trends for the coolest average man!

 

Accessories

Guys, one really really important accessory that should make part of all your outfits during Fall and Winter is THE SCARF! Do never leave home without it! Despite keeping you warm (yeah, yeah boring stuff), it makes you extremely hot! No kidding! It adds the extra “je ne sais quoi” to your look.

And some nice gloves

And a bag

 

Fall/Winter Average Outfit (H&M)

 

And look at this… huh… I mean… shorts! Will look nice on the beach. (girls, this one is for you!)

Converse | The App

21 Sep

Sometimes it can be a big problem to buy online, because you’ll never know how the product will fit you.

To solve this problem, Converse developed a new app that allows you to “try” the shoes before you buy it. It’s easy, simple and cool.

 

See here how it works

Birthday Wishlist!

Today it’s my birthday, so I decided to post about what I would like to receive this year! Actually this may work as a hint for some people :p

–  Canon 550 D / Rebel T2i

Would totally love to have this one, just check the features (the understandable ones):

I love Maxi skirts, but this one caught my heart

I need some wedges, some cool and colorful wedges!

I could use some flats too, I can’t wear heels every single day, cause I walk a lot!

–  Makeup | Beauty products

I never refuse beauty products. Every girl needs to be pampered!

– Watch

Ok… I need a watch! No more being late, no more excuses, no more “Am I late? Really? Oh sorry, I don’t have a watch and my cell is lost somewhere in my purse!”


 –  Bungee jumping

Always wanted to do it! And this is the perfect time for that.

Do I need to say something about this one? Simply cool and romantic!

Any other ideas?

Is this going to be trendy?

17 May

Here it is the proof that fashion is back!

My question is: Is this going to be trendy? Will Zara or Asos create their own version of these Penis-Shaped High Heels?

It’s not difficult to guess that these ones are from Gaga!

Fashionable Biodegradable shoes

27 Apr

OAT shoes had a big concern: Why can’t we have stylish and “green” shoes?

They realized that everyone bought fancy and fashionable sneakers and that was freaking difficult for people to go for greener choices, because the options were hideous!

So they came across with a sexy and green choice. OAT shoes created a new shoe concept that can be buried after use, cause they’re biodegradable!

Ok… the shoes are fancy, the concept is cool, but I would rather prefer the guy on the photos? Can I buy that online? :P

Melissa Shoes | For Passionate Living

29 Mar

“Looking beautiful. Feeling fabulous. Expressing your individuality. Making ecological choices. These are all hallmarks of passionate living and they are all at the foundation of Melissa fashion shoes.”

Probably you already know MELISSA shoes. They are identifiable from miles away and they are everywhere! But maybe you should know more about these shoes.

Melissa is a Brazilian brand that offers comfortable, colorful, fashionable and trendy plastic shoes.

Facts about Melissa shoes:

  • Made from eco-friendly mono materials
  • Can be recycled
  • Completely cruelty free – no animal testing
  • Apparently they are really confortable and promised that you can walk miles with it, without feeling like someone is eating your feet alive!

“These fashion shoes are truly comfortable and will take you from long days at work to lunch with the girls, all night parties to the most glamorous of red carpet events.”


LOVE THESE!

A lot of Celebs are already using Melissa Shoes:  Kate Perry, Agyness Deyn, Anne Hathaway, Alicia Silverstone, Cate Blanchett, Beth Ditto and Kate Moss.

And the well-known blogger – Chiara

Now, let’s talk about what really matters. The shoes are really beautiful, they look great; they make us beg for summer, BUT are they really comfy as they say?

Cause what I can guess is that some of them are waterproof (duh) and perfect to take to the beach, because they won’t get dirty and all that.  But I can’t imagine walking with some of them… Aren’t they going to suffocate my feet? It’s plastic!!

Anyway, I really like them and all the philosophy behind it (yes… now that’s starting to matter to people). I would like to know your experience about it… this might be my next “investment” for summer :p

Do you own ones? What do you have to say about it?

Which ones do you like?

 

UPDATE!!!

Well this was an interesting turnaround! This post was about fashion and summer shoes, but in the meanwhile in the comments, the discussion was mainly about ecology! So the question was: How can PVC be eco-friendly?!

Actually that didn’t even crossed my mind, but it’s an interesting question. So I decided to search a little about MELISSA VS ECO-FRIENDLY philosophy.

Here it is was I found:

Eco Citizen: “Melissa’s Shoes are fairtrade and made with nearly zero waste in production. They are also 100% recyclable and made from a specially patented meflex plastic and a non-toxic and breathable PVC.”

Lucky Mag: “The materials now used in the production of their (Melissa’s) shoes are made from 30% recycled PVC, and a portion of sales is donated to the World Vision of Recife.”

Being 100% recyclable you can put them on a recycling bin when you feel like they’re not good enough for you anymore!

Now, I hope I helped somehow and I hope everyone is enlightened about how Melissa is eco-friendly! =)

Thanks for the question and thanks for commenting! :)
