Midi dress and flat sandals

I´ve been posting a lot of dresses recently, haven´t I? Well, summer makes me want to wear them. Sometimes it´s a bit complicated to pull of a dress but in order to feel comfortable I suggest you wear something relatively long. In my previous post I suggested floor length dresses, but this time is the turn of midi dresses, those that go under the knee but not long enough to cover you calves. They´ve became popular a couple of seasons ago and I decided to keep on using it... because you know, fashion rules were made to be broken! As I keep on breaking rules, I opted for super flat sandals, like the ones you use to the beach and I finished my not-so-formal outfit like that! Tell me what do you think?? 

Hope you like it and see you soon!!!!

OrneLGA MAC x Mariah Carey

Link to video: here

Hello guys! Today I´ll be talking about MAC Cosmetics latest colaboration with singer Mariah Carey. I know it´s pretty much sold out, but if you manage to get your hands on something, don´t doubt it and make sure to add it to your makeup desk! The collection includes shimmery lipsticks, glosses, eye shadows, eye lashes, brushes and a highlighter, THE HIGHLIGHTER. I only got the highlighter, I would have also enjoyed the lipsticks, but they were kind of sold out.

I´m about to review the Highliter, but first I should let you know that it is technically not a highlighter. On the Mac website it is described as "Extra Dimension Skinfinish Powder", but everybody is using it as a regular highliter. I would say that the only difference is in the colour, it´s much more bronze than a regular illuminator, so it recommend you use it with caution unless you have a great tan, in which case it brightens the bronzed skin colour. The exact name of the powder is My Mimi, a warm gold shimmer. I came to the conclusion that the highlighter works as a bronzy blusher as well. If you want to see me trying it, make sure to watch my last video here.

Another aspect of interest is the packaging. everything either resembles diamonds or gold. You can´t expect less from Mariah, right? As regards the highlighter, it has Mariah´s face silhouete embossed into the powder. How many people can say that their face is on a powder? I guess you are the only one Mariah!
So, now you know, if you want a well defined bronzy highlighter, My Mimi is for you.

Don´t forget to see my first reaction to the product on my latest video on my YouTube channel, Orne Galvez and let me know your thoughts. Thank you for reading and hope you enjoyed it!

Pre-Fall 2017

If you thought you wouldn´t see any new fashion till the shows in February, you were totally wrong! This week we could get a preview of the definite collections that will come next month. Some of the designers who made a presentation or show are Valentino and Stella McCartney.

Chanel had it´s Pre-Fall 2017 fashion show back in Dicember in it´s hometown Paris at the elegant hotel, The Ritz. The collection featured elegant looks from previous decades, we could say that from a period between the 30´s onwars. The models gave a lot to talk about as girls such as Lily Rose Deep, Georgia May Jaegger and Willow Smith (the daughter of... as many call them) took the runway, actually The Ritz restaurant, together with Cara Delevinge and singer Pharrel Williams.

Coach 1941 Pre-Fall 2017 was presented back in December at Pier 94 in New York City where they also celebrated their anniversary number 75. The runway? It was a very American vintage parking lot. And the clothes were another reminder of America, about New York and the good vibes they have. Some hints of the s70´s, dinosaurs and varsity bombers.

Max Mara Pre-Fall 2017 comes straight from Shangai! Quiete exotic compared to the classic pieces we are used to seeing on their shows.

Stella McCartney unveiled her Autumn 2017 collection in New York City at the Cotton Club with the presentation of Alicia Keys and the presence of Julianne Moore. As regards the clothes we could see a lot of knit (remember the rhombus knitted sweaters?), the comfortable pyjama style, and her classic oversize faux fur coats. Oh, and I almost forgot about the red section of the show, that included the most party-ready pieces.

Valentino, under the creative direction of Pierpaolo Piccioli presented the pre-Fall 2017 collection at The Beekman in New York City under the concepts of hope and optimism. The show had that classic Valentino magic that makes us feel we are in a dream. Each gown is so unique, with very detailed prints and embroidery. However, what I like the most is the selection of colours, red, black and bugundary outfits as well as vintage (or old) pink and light blue.

Alberta Ferretti broke all the fashion rules during it´s Pre-Fall 2017 show in Milan. Fluid and romantic, embroidery, lace, velvet dresses and asymmetrical skirts designed to express modern femininity. What I liked the most? The concept of a jacket/sweatshirt tied around couture dresses and the days of the week sweaters!

Moschino Pre-Fall 2017 just happened in Milan together with Menswear. Bold prints, military green, a lot of tulle and more prints.

Dolce & Gabanna show was not technically a Pre-Fall collection, but I still want to mention them for their Fall/Winter 2017 show. They invited the hottest "millennials" of the moment. Millennials is the new trendy word... remember when being hipster was cool? Well, now it´s beeing millennial or internet generation. So, well known Youtubers and Instagramers such as Jim Chapman, Lucky Blue Smith, Avan Jogia, Cameron Dallas, Presley Gerber and many more who took over the runway in Italy.
