Boost your mood by looking amazing!

There really isn’t an easier way for a person to communicate who they are to the rest of the world than through their clothes. By carefully selecting the pieces we choose to wear on a particular day or in a particular way, we are sending a message about how old we are, what we like, where we work, and what we dream about. One of the easiest ways to express oneself has always been through clothes and accessories, but what is more, our clothes can affect the way we see ourselves as well.

Sportswear as a New Fashion Trend

We can all dream about owning pieces that were made for runways by prominent fashion designers and wearing couture to work, but is it possible for our dreams to become true? Sadly, it is not very likely it will ever happen because pieces like those are rather expensive and (admit it) not always comfortable. We want clothes that look good on us, are of highest quality, and yet allow us to move freely and be comfortable.
Are those things dreams as well? Not anymore, with sportswear emerging as a new fashion trend.

Wearing Underwear as Outerwear

If girls and women from nineteenth and twentieth century could catch a glimpse of modern women and today’s fashion trends, they would have been shocked. With fashion designers becoming more bold and innovative every season, it was a matter of time when they would decide that ‘keeping things hidden’ (and by ‘things’ we mean underwear) was too boring a trend and that it lacked a fresh perspective. As a result, women all over the world are wearing their underwear as a statement piece of clothing and are not ashamed of showing it off.

Staying chic and stylish on a daily basis can be very demanding, however, you have to be aware that owning expensive pieces in order to look expensive is not obligatory.

DOVF Interview: Let’s Talk Style with Ashley Lindo!

Screenshot_2015-12-10-17-12-50-1

A few weeks ago I sat down wit Ashley Lindo who is a good friend of mine to talk about style among other fashion related topics. Ashley is a 20 year old Fashion retail and management student at The Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham. I chose to interview Miss Lindo because her style has always stood out to me way before we became friends. When I think of a “Fashionista” this girl definitely comes to mind. Read on to find out where Ashley’s love for fashion came from and why she adores Rihanna and Olivia Palmero!

50+ Style Icons We Found on Web

Style knows no age, and these 50+ people are soul proof of it! Most of the style icons (we sure as hell will refer to them as style icons as they look better than most of us do) we’ve chosen are just regular people minding their business on the streets of their towns and cities, absolutely unaware that they are re-defining the fashion world as we speak.
Except for their impeccable sense of style and cut-and-color composition, the reason we are so fascinated with these individuals is that, unlike most of us today who have adopted styles forced by various fashion bloggers on the internet, these guys probably have no “internet fashion education” under their belt but rely on their inner drive to match and combine pieces, and in result – look absolutely fabulous!
Here are some of our favorite 50+ fashionistas, hope you’ll enjoy their styles as much as we did:

Male bun charm

We are so sorry to hear you aren’t looking as amazing as the mister portrayed in the picture above; after all, not everyone can pull off a yellow ascot, awesome sunnies and an impressive male bun while shopping for vintage oil cans at their flea market. Brava!

Schoolboy vibes

This forever classic and fabulous rascal-schoolboy look is only improved by those non-dress code, sherbet-colored pants. We may argue this guy is going through some High school nostalgia ending in him superbly channeling his old uniform… or, he just loves the style and rocks it amazingly! Whichever the case, it’s working for us!

Chic looks good coupled up

Don’t you just love it when you see a fashionable couple casually walking down the street, looking all stylish and what not. What’s particularly amazing about these two is that this guy’s laid-back panache lets his lady shine. The way these two complement each other is so inspiring, don’t you think?

I am God of fashion

This gentlemen that was recently photographed in Berlin near the Kotbusser Tor station wearing his iTailor outfit is what we consider having impeccable style and a fantastic sense of fashion. The gentleman is called Günther Krabbenhöft and is incorrectly reported to be 104 years old. Mr Günther says on his FB profile that the Internet has “doubled” his age.
“I find that I dress pretty normal. I’ve always dressed like this. When I went to work, when I go to exercise. I want to look at myself with joy. It’s also always a reflection of my inner self.” Well, keep it up, it’s amazing!

Call me Lynn

This gorgeous woman is everything! Her style is impeccable, well put together and, in a word, breathtaking! All of the outfits featured in the photos ooze old Hollywood charm – the outfits are almost Elizabeth Tayloresque, but with an evident sense of individuality in them. We will  forever remember her as our style crush. Rest in peace, Lynn Dell Cohen.

I am Tziporah Salamon

Colorful, edgy, awe-inspiring and definitely unusual, Ms Salamon knows good clothes and isn’t afraid to flaunt them. A major label, Lanvin, featured this stunning 62-year-old in their Fall 2012 Campaign! When asked how she felt about it, she said she never could’ve guessed something like this could happen for her: “” I am totally honored, jazzed, and thrilled. I am so grateful for this opportunity. In my early 20s I would have never realized that I could do something like this. It wasn’t until I was in my 40s that I began to see my beauty. By then I felt that there weren’t many opportunities for older models.  How ironic is it that i am having my big break as a model in my 60s? This is a great day!”
If this is what the old(er) age looks like, we are on board! This lovely lady’s name almost sounds like a fashion brand, don’t you think? In fact, she is a well known personal stylist and if we had the opportunity – we’d definitely be the first in line to get styled by her!

Fashion vs. Style: The Real Difference

Fashion vs StyleThe terms Fashion and Style always seem to be used interchangeably by people, when in fact they have two completely different meanings! Separating the two is quite easy when you have someone break it down for you, and that is what I’m here to do.
Now according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary Fashion is a popular way of dressing during a particular time or among a particular group of people: the business of creating and selling clothes in new styles. Fashion is ever changing and usually what is considered to be “in” is what designers, fashion houses, and models make contemporary at the moment. Style on the other hand is a particular way in which something is done, created, or performed also taken from the Merriam-Webster dictionary. With Fashion being ever changing, something that may be “in” one day can easily be considered “out” of fashion the next. Style is what makes a person’s fashion choices stand out. It is what a person chooses to add his/her own unique twist.
