As much we don’t like predictability that much we crave some sort of consistency that among others, Stella McCartney masters. She knows exactly what works best for the women who fall for her designs that are merging the attributes of simple, clean, feminine-sporty and vegan. The pieces she creates season after season are so called creative layers, embracing her signature style of sharp tailoring, and adding a natural confidence and sporty femininity to the wearer. Her Spring/Summer 2013 accessories are designs that no one can say no to; it brings optimism, colour, youth and life into our wardrobes. The luxe appeal range includes chain-trimmed falabella bags in the shades of metallics made out of faux leather and half-wedges with tropical prints and transparent twist. Mixing masculine and feminine references has always been a speciality of hers, aiming the Stella woman who is naturally sexy, naturally confident and modern in mind with a crave for a constant effortless flair.

So sehr wir Vorhersehbarkeit nicht mögen, so sehr lieben wir ein wenig Beständigkeit, die unter anderem von Stella McCartney gemeistert wird. Sie weiß genau, was am besten zu den Frauen passt, die sich in ihre Designs verlieben, welche die Attribute einfach, gradlinig, feminin sportlich und vegan verschmelzen lassen. (more…)

The American brand, Michael Kors has released a video starring the beautiful Estonian model Karmen Pedaru, titled ‘Sporty Sexy Glam’, featuring a new beauty range that includes a body care collection, make-up, self-tanning products, and fragrances. The designer told WWD about his inspiration behind the perfumes: “I think those three things-sexy, sporty and glam-have always been the DNA of Michael Kors, and in a strange way, the Michael Kors woman really is all three of those things. It’s just that she feels more strongly about one of them at certain given times” – Kors explained. Whether you embrace the attitude of sporty, sexy or glamorous you will be able to find both the matching scent and colour in the shades of soft neutrals, sexy reds and playfully shiny pinks. The fragrances, which also keep the ‘Sporty Sexy Glam’ theme will embody an orange and mandarin scent for the sporty, whereas both glam and sexy will be consisting of natural woody scents with a hint of fruity infusions. Are you a Michael Kors women too? If so, which of the three attitudes matches you the best?

We, at SilkSoFine – as you guys might have already noticed – stand for a healthy and fit lifestyle, of course with a little place for cheating to satisfy those sweet cravings once in a while…It’s not about having a few pounds less on the scale or crazy diving into diet fads and get slim and sleek as the fashion world dictates, rather just finding the great balance in life. Living healthy is a lifestyle, which you choose, not tomorrow, but today. Thanks to our ever-developing-world you find gyms on every second corner, proper running shoes, personal-trainers and so much more, but as we highlighted earlier, health is much depending on the eating habits. We make small failures, which can easily be avoided just by incorporating simple good-to-know tips in the kitchen such as:

1. Forget the potato-meat match by replacing the carbs with fresh or steamed vegetables. Keep the carbs for the morning and start your day with whole fruits, freshly-squeezed juices and whole grain bread/muesli instead. If you crave sweets, morning is the best time to sin.

2. Incorporate organic and fresh ingredients. Shop at a natural food store or buy food from your local farmer’s market, or what’s better, pick some from the garden (cheaper and not time-consuming at all).

3. Physical activity is a key factor in weight control and good long-term health. It is as important as a good diet and good sleep. Think about simple thing just as walking instead of taking the tube.

4. Avoid excessive smoking and alcohol intake…If you go for cocktails, avoid the creamy ones.

5. If you crave sweets, replace ice-cream with homemade smoothies, cakes with fruit-salads and low-fat yoghurt, bonbons with quality dark-chocolate.

These are just a few cliches from us with love, but the more you read it, the more likely you give a heed to the words. And remember, there is ALWAYS a healthy option!


Wir bei SilkSoFine stehen für einen gesunden und fitten Lifestyle – wie ihr vielleicht schon festgestellt habt – natürlich mit Platz für die eine oder andere kleine Schummelei, um den süßen Hunger auch mal zu befriedigen… (more…)
