Gutsy Women: #GirlBoss

Image

As a future (i hope) business woman i have the moral owe to write a post about powerful women in the fashion industry, or if not that, at least spread the word about the amazing job those gutsy ladies have done.

First one i want to talk about is obviously the woman that inspired this post, CEO and founder at NastyGal, her book #girlboss just came out in the US and i can’t wait to get my hands on it.

Sophia Amoruso

Sophia Amoruso launched an ebay store in San Francisco selling old pieces of clothing. The store was named Nasty Gal Vintage, with the name being inspired by Betty Davis, ex-wife of Miles Davis. On its website, the company calls Davis “the patron saint of badass women … complete with lamé platform thigh-high boots.” The eBay store sold vintage fashion that Amoruso would source at secondhand stores; one such find, a Chanel jacket she purchased at a Salvation Army Store for $8, she sold for more than $1,000.

“I STOPPED FEELING LIKE I DIDN’T BELONG ANYWHERE, AND REALIZED THAT I ACTUALLY BELONGED ANYWHERE I WANTED TO BE.”

“I am visually drawn to and inspired by the grit and underbelly of cultures and art. I like things to be a bit filthy, uncomfortable and controversial.”

As the founder of MADE Fashion Week (formerly known as Milk) and consulting firm The Terminal Presents, Lombardo’s worked with everyone from Lady Gaga to Terence Koh (she says she “won’t rest until I add Dolly Parton and Howard Johnson hotels to my roster!”). After getting her start at Interview Magazine, she moved to M.A.C Cosmetics, where she helped to instate the M.A.C + Milk program, which has given a platform to designers like Rodarte, Alexander Wang and the aforementioned Proenza Schouler. 


Taylor Tomasi Hill

 It’s said that she is the muse to Prabal Gurung. Taylor was  the accessories director for Teen Vogue magazine. The editor has become a style icon for her model-like body, flame red hair (she is secretive as to which hairdresser maintains her red hair, although she has revealed they are on the east side in Manhattan) and distinctive clothing items, such as chunky necklaces and scarves.[Taylor has described herself as a “clothing chameleon”, whose style is constantly evolving.  She often mixes feminine pieces with boyish or edgier items. Taylor herself favors items from Proenza Schouler and Rick Owens.  She listsBurberry trench coats as a staple in her wardrobe as well as Madewell destroyed jeans,Chanel 2.55 bag and YSL heels for the office.

Girl Crush: Frances Bean Cobain

Image


 

I’m famous by default. I came out of the womb, and people wanted to know who I was because of my parents.


What’s so upsetting about my obsession over this girl is that when I first started following her on Twitter i had no idea she was who she was, mainly because of her username and also because back when i found her account it wasn’t verified nor she used the name “Frances Bean Cobain” so she was just a gorgeous girl with amazing music taste and sense of style to me.

Browsing on tumblr I then found out that she is Kurt and Courtney’s daughter, and if before surgery she looked just like her mom now she is the perfect mixture between her mom and dad.

“If you’re a big Nirvana fan, a big Hole fan, then I understand why you would want to get to know me, but I’m not my parents.”

“These people are fascinated by me, but I haven’t done anything.”


ImageI really hope you enjoyed this post, I didn’t really want to include pictures of when she was a baby or with her parents just because I like her as an individual, as i said i liked her a lot before knowing she was “the daughter”, I just love her sense of style, and i tought it was appropriate to include a post about her on my blog.

 

Hope you enjoyed,

Sharon

This wouldn’t be my blog without a segment entirely dedicated to the music i’ve been into lately.

Keep in mind that i really really really do listen to a bit of everything so don’t be scared by the absence of criteria you’ll see in the list here down below.

 

There’s a strong 80’s/90’s theme going on lately, no idea why, but those are a few of the songs i never get tired of.

Hope you found something you liked.


Lots of Love,

#throwback: Zombie

zombie1

So, I decided to create this “series” of post called #throwback just to take a look at the past,

here i will be posting pictures and posts from my old blog just because i want you to know how i looked a while back

what i liked to wear and stuff.


I have to admit this pictures are a few weeks old, but i enjoyed the outfit way

too much not to share it with you all.
It’s just a couple random pictures a friend took while I was dancing like a complete idiot,
i’ll probably share the ones I took of her in a while. Meanwhile I hope you enjoy.

New Begginnings

Selfie

All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.

I know this is problably not the right time to change domain since the blog was growing, and i know that i will probably lose tons of followers and readers this way but i felt the need to change something: my personal style as changed, my life is about to change, and even the country i live in is going to change. I feel the need for my blog to be more professonal, to look more put-together and i want to spend a lot more time writing and taking pictures even just to document the way my life is about to change!

Hope no one gets too mad


Lots of love,

Sharon.
