Resort 2014 Trends: Gold Takeover

Standard

As a fashion observer and adorer i spend so much time within blogs, magazines etc following all the fashion trends!

Well, i not only run a little online preloved fashion store (www.usednotconfused.com) but i also LOVE fashion! As my motto insists “Fahion is Passion”

So, i adore www.fashiongonerogue.com and i admire the articles in there!

Resort 2014 Trends have a lot of surprises this year. A great one is the Gold Takeover. I love Gold as a color since it represents the The color of enlightenment and divine protection. When seen within the aura, it says that the person is being guided by their highest good.

and as quoted from Fashiongonerogue (article: http://www.fashiongonerogue.com/4-resort-2014-trends-to-watch)

“From Lanvin to Gucci, labels went for the gold with looks dipped in metallic. This trend can go from day to night with relaxed suiting and elegant dresses. Lanvin creative director Alber Elbaz brought his own unique take on the trend with an off the shoulder dress while Acne Studios and Gucci offered pantsuits in the metallic hue.”

Let’s all ENJOY a GOLDEN ERA someday this year!

Put some golden light into our dark days.

Have a great day.

Preloved Fashion must be Reloved!

In today’s world, lead by consumption we have created the so called “non-value for money” economical model. That is, almost everything is over- valued and what you get is not always what you think!
Off course this has lead us to over consumption of un useful things (quite excellent for major industries) and lack of true value estimation.
Apparently this era is coming to an end and people are starting to feel more price sensitive, they seek for value for money proposals and most of all they switch to Eco-friendly & ethical products.
We @usednotconfused believe that recycled, preloved fashion gives you the chance to find amazing products, designer items in excellent condition and in value for money prices.
By purchasing preloved & vintage clothing and accessories you get the unique chance of finding unique masterpieces.

Here is a very interesting article Benefits Of Buying Second Hand Dresses</strong> I came across today. Truth well written!

The joy of Life!

The joy of Life!

What a lovely morning!
I woke up with a joyful feeling of spring, it’s been a long and hard weekend…2 days of nonstop high energy bazar!
UsednotConfused team was at the first Bluemarket Bazar in Athens. We had a lovely time and enjoyed every single moment. My legs are still hurting but my heart is full of Joy! It was so nice to be with people who appreciate what you do and who give you a positive feedback. That’s the magic of live, that’s the joy.
Small moments that pass by and make you realise that you are still Alive and that you have many things to be happy for.
Have a great week and always remember : “Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together”

Today i woke up with a feeling of happiness.It’s Friday, it’s sunny…i’m healthy…my loved ones are around…what else?
On a day like this, i always think of the little things that spice up my life. The big ones ( LOVE and HAPPINESS) are always welcomed to stay for longer….
So, little things count. They add joy,colour,style. And here is my today’s list.

– Accessories: Something to spice up our look even if wearing a white T-shirt.
– Natural Tones of make-up. Try to look and feel NATURAL!

Let’s DETOX!

Let's DETOX!

I guess that most of us are feeling a bit weak this time of the year. A bit of Flue effects, some stress, a lot of talking, running around etc…rewards us with a great feeling of fatigue.
I saw this Moschino ad today and it reminded me of Detox….it’s the fruity vibe that comes along with it, so i thought of combing both fashion & Detox.
I always choose 2 times a year for Detox and trust me i feel much better after, in combination with my Yoga practice.

So here is a very good 3 day cleansing detox diet i found on the web that will definitely boost your energy and cleanse your body!

Best time to start your 3-day cleansing detox diet?

When you’re on a break, says naturopath Sarah Bowles Flannery. Follow the menu to the letter, drink lots of water and herbal tea, then enjoy a lighter body, clear head and more energy after just three days!
