Turban Fashion

Turbans have been in and out of fashion over the last decade but they went mainstream last year when we spotted them on the set of Sex and the City.  Turbans are back full force for spring as well as shown in the collections of Jason Wu and Issa.

This is your opportunty to step out of your confort zone. Lisanne in Atlanta did and she rocked it.

My First Decor Post

I am excited to share with you the latest addition to my home decor from the Z Gallery. This hand carved, Camphor Wood panel is made of three pieces that can be hung together or separately. The original color was lighter and we had to use linseed oil for treatment and color.  As a result, we have a completely unique piece.At first we tried to hang it ourselves but it was one of those experiences that really tests your relationship with your better half. So, we decided to call in the professionals. I hope you like it.

Purple Rain, Purple Rain

We all know that bold colors are on the horizon for Spring 2011. Although some designers feature the trend from head to toe, I prefer it when its boldness it softened by neutral and pastel colors. I decided to start the trend a little earlier with a sweater from MissSixty.

Teodora's Lookbook: Accessorizing the Snow

Happy Sunday!

The weather has been unusually dreary in Atlanta for the last week or so. However, I decided it should not prevent me from having fun and taking advantage of nature's beauty. I realized snow makes one of the best backdrops for photographs.

Oxford Styling

Yesterday, I found this great post by the one and only the Sartorialist. Instantly I fell in love with the model's look and I was on the hunt for her red and white "candy dipped" shoes. They are known as Oxford or Brogue and originated from Scotland and Ireland. So, I am on the hunt for some leather Oxfords, hopefully two-toned with patent leather. Here is a selection I had fun with on Polyvore.

Teodora's Lookbook: Riding the Trend

This post is a follow up on my previous post re: equestrian style. This is how I interpret this timeless trend providing the budget. I apologize for the inside pictures. We have had a "snowpocalypse" in Atlanta and we just don't know how to deal with it.

I have also added a photo from my only experience riding a horse. It was with an older Clydesdale named Jake. He was a sweetheart but he was just too big for my own comfort.

Wish List: Twenty-first century riding "habit"

I love equestrian inspired fashion because it is both romantic and masculine at the same time. It is romantic, because it reminds me of English country, green pastures, castles, and beautiful Arabian horses. At the same time, the masculine style of the jacket and the boots would give me confidence that I would usually not have when wearing flowery summer dress. I realize that there isn't so much glamor in equestrian life, but who says we cannot bring some equestrian style in our glamorous life.  Here is a collage of some of my wish list items as most of them are out of my $$$ range. My reality collage coming soon.

Something Different

I am so excited about my friend's upcoming wedding. This past Saturday we had a great time looking at potential dressses for the bride and the bridesmaids. Nadia is from Bangladesh so I got a quick tutorial on sarees styles and fabrics. The most common fabrics for sarees are chiffon, silk, georgette, crepe and cotton. She is looking for a white or off-white design intricate with light embroidered borders and crystal beaded work. I wish I had more occasions to wear sarees.

Teodora's Lookbook: Salute to Military Chic


Here is my realistic representation of the "Aviator Chic" collage I shared with you a couple of posts ago. The aviator jacket is still in the works but maybe I can save enough for next year. I know it shouldn't matter if I like it, but do you think it will still be in style next winter?

Most of the pieces in this outfit are from different brands but they were purchased from Fab'rik.

Skinny Cargo Pants - BlankNYC
Shoes - Guess, Owens Ankle Boots from Off Broadway Shoes
Aviator Sunglasses - Armani
