Ok, style is code. It reveals everything, it precedes everything. And all I want to express apart from my closet, my mind, my notes, my mirror, my beauty case, my room, my heart, I want to show in this way, here and now. In a little bit abstract but always passionate way. Moreover, I love collages since I was a little kid. They have a styling process in their own way. They make everything seem a simple game. And this is exactly what it is. The direction is not one but many. OMG, I just thought of that. Imagine a compass of fashion. A compass of beauty. Helping you to find the orientation of the original expression. This is the basic principle of style. Authenticity. And I want to talk to you about the “guardian angels” of it. Heels are everything to me, but I prefer their creative aspect. The patterns intervene in the monochromatic choices and the sequins acquire a coolest than glam outfit role. To all the above add some exotic patterns, eyeshadows pulled out from Warhol creations, exciting juicy lip glosses, cold flavors, ethereal figures, flashy scenes and details that stand out from the crowd. See it all together and individually at the same time. That’s what I do to choose the “materials” of my style recipe. Same same but different. And if you like as on your fridge, to put on your closet magnets with images that you love because they inspire every single second, let me show you mine first. Did you saw the All Star? Did you notice … the Ray Ban Wayfarer with the vintage green lens, the cool Accessorize handbag, the vintage friendly H & M visor (yes, the cap, I mean ..), the super chic casual bun and the 2 minutes Pantene Pro v Intensive Restructuring Mask.This is how much time it needs to quench the thirst, to protect and to revive the shine of my hair before or after the beach wherever I am, wherever I go. Roughly, this is how much time I need you too to add at all the above and to “narrate” to you my favorite vintage treasures … pop red earrings + ab fab patterned top + absolutely feminine sunglasses + “sensitive” scarf+ clutch bag with the coolest hidden chain = L.F.E. All by mystyleforecast.com Creativewear Summer Collection. Let me just play for a while with them- when the f of fashion stands for fun, I’m happy- , check your fave piece and I am waiting for you at the same position in 21 seconds …I have a special surprise for you!

Fairy tales always have a “they lived happily ever after” end. I really love this kind of stories but I never stopped wondering what happens before that all time classic ending. Everyday style is continuously looking for “supporters” and finally teams up with make up. It’s just incredible being able to tell a story with films and colors. That’s exactly what I did with my mini script, with my own Alice in “Urbanland”. The urban searches need urban “operations” like those with brown/gray eyeshadows, powders that diffuse glow and brightness, juicy lip glosses, magical brushes, tools that focus on detail, make-up that leaves you with the feeling that something precious, dreamy, indefinable unique is touching you for a while! What I’m trying to tell you is to treat makeup like a proper styling process, not in the closet but on your face using fave images, original inspirations and true feelings. And believe me, what you will make and “wear”, has its own language. A special language that communicates with looks and actions, and glances and spontaneous aura, that precedes any word. See what I love and what I “paint” with it in order to stand out from the crowd without shouting loudly. I truly appreciate that, in style and in life generally.A gray veil on my nails. Dark as I want to, neutral enough to be combined with the majority of my closet.Some finishing touches to the arc of my/ her upper lid assure a magic look that cannot necessarily be explained but quietly stands out of the crowd.Yes, that’s the truth. The brushes make a difference and I love my “Bobbies”(Brown)…This nude powder exceeds my expectations. I love it for adding charm without being “loud”. Yes, I gently use my Dior Nude Glow Sun Powder Summer Collection 2012 mostly at the cheekbones.The most cool+funky pot of Mac “dresses” the lips and the eyelids, sharing generously its shiny dew with the final look.The easy to use lash curler. You cannot even imagine how much is changing the volume of the eyelashes. As for the palette of my friend and actress Alina is my beloved Chanel Les 4 Ombres.
Obsessed with hair clips. Not just now, it feels like it’s been for ever! That’s why I decided to give to my favorite H & M bow his own 15 minutes of publicity.Ok, the wings are not only for the angels but for mascaras as well. Those made my/her lashes to “fly”. OMG, The Falsies Flared, Maybelline New York rocks.Proud of my creation…And its name is Frozen Chocolate!!!!!!!!!!!!This is how all the “materials” beauty coexist on the same face, on the same hand, in the same mind. Get inspired anything and “sprinkle” it with some touches of “yourself” to create something originally beautiful. Click on the film of my own Alice to be persuaded of that!xxxxxxxx. A.Last but not least a sneak peek of the up coming…style up look. Thumbs up girls!

And that’s how the supernatural forms suddenly acquire another dimension. This script began first as a visual draft in my mind. My favorite anxiolytic habit as a student was to write with chalk on the board. Always the same word. Always the same design. But, no more. At least, not in the real world. What if could provoke the revival of this action to create a dark feminine style that can be matched only with the figure of a fallen angel? I love fashion because it works like a flashlight. It illuminates, depending on its “use”, the aspects that I want, the feelings that I feel. Not always, but at that particular moment. Simple clothes with countless creative possibilities function as operators of a measured eccentricity that does not terrify, but makes you stand out of the crowd. In this film I wanted to narrate to you a 57 seconds fashion story with unworldly sensation, but not at all unworldly materials. Listen. This time, with your eyes.
My little secrets…
1. I love the theatrical attitude of everyday style. British origin jackets, noisy sequins, insolent transparency pieces and “clumps” of necklaces (worn at least three together in the same look) are the first in the list What I always have in my closet.
2. The makeup does not follow the same rule as obeys only at the natural glow of the skin and the dark invasion of burgundy lipstick L’Oreal Color Riche Red Rapsody. Beneath the color, just a few seconds before, I dab lips with the smooth and transparent lip balm Korres Lip Butter Jasmine.
3. The fashion items- fetish add always extra value at any look. See how I manage the vintage red leather gloves.
About my heroine…
Auburn hair, green eyes and 1.79. Three characteristics that you definitely remember of model Petra Nilsson. With a minimal rock aesthetics and a penetrating gaze, at the short outfits changing break of my style clip she answers my favorite I.D questions about what is the inviolable rule in her style. In three words…focus on accessories. And she actually respects that style “do” with her power chic piercing, her bangles and her safety pin shape tattoo on her right hand. She is 23 years old, from Sweden and she lives the exciting modeling dream the last one year. He loves every Balmain collection and she would like to be the face of a Chloe campaign. When I ask her what scent she wears, she decides to write it down at my orange notebook…Lebelle de Ricci and at my most personal question about her family she reveals that he has a younger brother. There is no more time for our lovely Q/A moment and I manage to add only two more info. Her favorite food is Caesar salad and as the musical metaphor of her style profile she chooses the Freddy Mercury’s masterpiece…Bohemian Rhapsody.
Work in progress…
Enjoy me and Petra at backstage action!
