Tonal dressing is one of the trickiest trends that many people avoid just because it is hard to pull of. And to tell the truth, it is. The secret lays in finding pieces in the same color but in different shades. People tend to look for similar colors and end up with two completely different shades that are supposed to be alike but in fact are not, and this happens the most with nude as well as black. I have witnessed so many times this insane reasoning when women focus on finding a bag that will approximately match their pair of shoes and then pick a totally inappropriate shade. So ladies, if you for example buy a pair of nude sandals in a store where they don’t sell bags that perfectly match your shoes, go rather for white or gold.
Hopefully, you will get inspired by the outfits I have created for today’s post.

Have a nice weekend guys,

Xo, G.

duo 1Posing in front of the lens is in itself quite challenging but it gets worse when two or more people are involved. We all have done group pictures in which we looked less attractive than the others and vice versa, because knowing how to sit, look or what to do with your hands isn’t as easy as one may think. With Lena, we have only done a few photo shoots together that weren’t very successful, so we wanted to try again and practice a bit in order to improve our posing skills when doing photo shoots together. I selected only 4 pictures because the rest isn’t really good. ^_^ However the progress is obvious and next time, there will definitely be more pics to see.

Take care guys and thanks so much for visiting my blog!

urban chic 1My version of the perfect urban chic look consists of comfortable clothes and shoes with a subtle touch of chic which means, choosing one or two elegant items that would dress up the whole outfit and make it go from casual to casual-chic in an instant. In my case, my sleeveless, formal and elegant vest does the job as I look at it as THE piece that facilitates the transition from one style to another and gives my outfit an interesting twist. Don’t you think? ^_^

Wish you a beautiful Friday night guys,

layering 1It was cloudy, windy and too chilly that day to throw only a coat over my shoulders and step out into that unfriendly weather. Wearing layers of clothes is the answer however, when putting together than many layers, things can go wrong in an instant. So the main question is – how to do it properly?
In my case, it was quite simple. The maxi dress I am wearing is thin and light which is what you want to when you are looking to pile on more clothes since the most important in layering is let the clothes breath. As the sleeves are short I wanted something thicker to keep me warm and that would at the same time fit under my coat. The cardi/coat I went for is not only super comfy but it is also matching my dress. Mixing navy blue and burgundy is one of my favorite color combo for fall so naturally I put on my navy coat and accessorized it with an oversized blue and white scarf.

Thank you for visiting my blog guys!

noir et blanc 1It’s getting hot today on FPTL!! We went for a very different style for today’s post by wearing two ultra sexy mini dresses. To our surprise, both are quite comfortable.
Mine has a nice and appropriate plunging neckline considering the type of dress it is – by which I mean a dress for a girls night out for example. But if you still find it too revealing, wear a long and rich statement necklace and that’s it! But the most appealing and unusual about this cute little dress are the sleeves. It is rare to find a sexy dress with sleeves that you can roll up. This little detail instantly adds a cool vibe to it and I love it.
As for Lena’s dress, it has an amazing graphic print all over it, that kind of reminds me of a sun, don’t you think? ^^ While it is a bit longer than mine, the bodice is shoulder off and beautifully reveals the most elegant parts of a woman’s body, shoulders and back.

Thanks for visiting my blog guys ^_^

dolly Initially, this photo shoot was supposed to be very elegant and ladylike, but somehow along the way, we lost it and got the idea to make me act like a porcelain doll. As you can imagine, in 90% of the pictures I am doubled over with laughter and many of them are blurry as Lena was laughing too. In consequence, I can only share five pictures of this adorable dress that made me feel like a princess on the day I wore it. The shape is really flattering as it is very tight around the waist while the skirt is kind of flowy. But what I like most about it, is the beautiful round collar and sheer part of the bodice that reveals the perfect amount of skin. I find lace and sheer very elegant so whenever I attend a wedding or a christening, these two timeless fabrics always come to mind first.

That would be all for today folks, see you next post!
