Friday Fusic: The Queen of Clubs

Hello Fashion Followers & Music Luvrs, 

I have been meaning to do a FUSIC post 
strictly dedicated to the Queen of Clubs herself: NADIA ALI!!!

She paved the way for techno house singers everywhere when she introduced the smash hit 'Rapture' in the late 90's with the band iio! Since her departure from the group - she has gone solo, showcasing a sound of her very own on her debut CD, 'Queen of Clubs.' It is quite phenomenal, but the remixes are even HOTTER! I can imagine that it must be a DJ's dream to remix a song for the lovely and seasoned artist, Nadia Ali.

If you have never heard of Nadia Ali, you're going to need to listen to these tracks. Her voice is seriously MAGICAL and EXOTIC. 
I picked a couple of my favorite remixes. Hope you like 'em!  

1. Rapture 2011 Remix by Avicii - A classic beat with a new twist

2. Love Story remix by Sultan and Ned Shepard - I call them Gods in the DJ world.
    Absolutely SICK beat!!!! 

3. Promises - remix by Sebastian Kreig and Roman F: Extended version 
    Another HOT ONE, LOVE IT!

                                  HAPPY FRIDAY EVERYONE :-)

Fashion Funk.

Hello Fashion Followers, 

I am sorry that I have not updated in quite some time, but I have to admit that I am in a serious Fashion FUNK! 
There is no inspiration around me and I am starting to get worried. 
My usual window shopping online has come to a halt, maybe because I know I don't have dollars to spend on clothes right now. Online shopping for things I know I won't be able to get will just make me feel worse. 

"Where has all the money gone?"    
Living in the mist of a huuuge economic crisis/meltdown in Greece right now, where stores are closing left and right it only feels wrong of me to continue shopping in this environment. It's the whole attitude of the country right now that has left me a little depressed and hopeless. I can't even find any new FUSIC to put tonight...Usually I put club tracks up to get me ready for a fun Friday. But because those too have been cut short, well you get the idea. The inspiration and excitement is not there. 

I can NOT wait until the summer. I'm starting to go stir crazy. Just waiting for the day to whip out my favorite summer trends to post. In the meantime, I promise I will keep looking for interesting new updates. I would hate to just update for the sake of updating and not have it be worthwhile. We shall see what I can conjure up. 
Maybe I should look into a celeb style 4 less. Those are great go-to posts when I can't actually shop myself. 

Again, I'm very sorry I find myself in this funk. If there are any ideas you want to throw out there I would love to hear them. I guess I will update with a F.usic post too. Even though I might not be going out this Friday night, there are plenty of people out there who are! We can't let them down now, can we? 

Until next time, you know the drill
~Happy Shopping (If you can afford it, without running up your credit card!) lol

Fashion Forecast: Summer Colors of 2012

    Hello Fashion Followers,
I wanted to write down some predictions I have - What I expect we will predominately be seeing this summer on the beach!

I think there is going to be color blocking specifically with the colors: Orange and Purple, jewel tones, with accents of gold. That color block combo started making its way in fashion in October and it will probably pick up again this summer.


Another classic color block that never fails is Black and White. A classy and sophisticated combination no matter what. Buying anything black and white will be more timeless than other colors that go in and out, so it is really worth the purchase.  Blue jewel tones will probably be added as well to accentuate the black and white.

Aztec prints are not really my prediction. Meaning, I can’t claim this prediction to be own, Since Aztec is already out right now. It is ‘the IT’ print that has been really popular this year. I just wanted to comment that we will probably be seeing this trend stretch out well into the summer collections; on bathing suits, jewelry, tank tops etc…

More pictures coming soon...keep posted for the updated version! 

Summer 2012 At-a-Glance
  • Orange, Purple and Gold.
  • Black, White, Blue, and Silver 
  • Lighter Pink and Crème
  • Hot Pink and Turquoise
  • Anything Aztec!

     And there you have it - my predictions. I am not claiming this to be fact, I could be wrong but let’s see what the summer shall bring. In a few months I’ll make a follow-up post to see if any of these trends fell through.

I should have made a spring trend update first, but that isn't a forecast post because the spring trends are already out. I will make sure to post spring colors too! I'll give you hint: "Don't let the color of jealousy get to you..."
Until Next time, Happy Shopping xx

Betsey Johnson Gives a Sneak Peak.

So many updates, where shall I begin?   

Here's a little treat for Betsey Johnson lovers. The fashion designer herself posted to fans from her facebook page on January 25th with a sneak peak at some shoes that will be out for the 2012 spring collection.  

       She writes: "Love these heels? Watch out for 'em this Spring!" 

Can I just point out two things...Patent leather is still in - YES!!! I am so excited about that. And second, the pointed-toe is slowly coming back. That metal stiletto heel is FIERCE! I am definitely thinking about getting myself a pair of those babies. I hope when the spring collection is available there are other colors to choose from! 

Be back in a jiff with another fashion post! xoxo
