"Seems like old times" were goldie

I woke up to “Seems like old times” and it totally made my day. The movie, the mood, Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn. It is about fashion as it can be. But most off all, it is about style. Goldie is golden!

The dress in the picture is not actually the one that made me do this, but it is the only picture I found of her style in the movie and it is, however, super worthy of this category. The dogs are, too. Awr!

“Seems like old times” is an 1980 movie and the air of the pre whatever-has-transformed-the-wolrd-into-right-now euphoria is just what you would want on a Saturday morning. A time when actually life was a way of life.

And women wore splendid pyjamas.

Rule: follow your heart in love and wear long dresses. Big fall trend, btw, and the way Goldie did them… That’s the way.

DAT hair.

And below is the dress that made me do this and actually take a screenshot.

Watch the movie.

Live your love.

Red wine, please!

What is your favourite colour? Mine is red. “Red, red wine”. You know the song? Do you like red wine? Do you like red? Do you like wine? You see? Red makes you act like this. Or is it the wine? “Who knew?”. You know the song?

Red is beautiful. Red mixed with white and pink is delicious. Red mixed with white and pink and black lines into geometrical motives is fashion. Passion. Red is passion.

“The most emotionally intense colour, red stimulates a faster heartbeat and breathing. It is also the colour of love.“, according to infoplease.com.

But when all of the above is put into design, well, that is just poetry. It’s not, obviously. But it is just so fun to wear (not that I’d worn it, but one can dream) and float in or something. Clothes that float (one can only imagine oneself). The t-shirt inspired dress has been here for a while and it is here to stay.

Rule: when you have a statement piece on yourself, try not to “diminish” it. It’s the safe way. Clean way. By pairing it with simple white sneakers, tanned sandals, nude slip-ons. Or dare and make it shine even more. You know how. You feel how.

Coolness

Man, this chick is hot!

ozinparis-hot

And I, personally, don’t really buy the boots in summer thing, but, this one above could totally do it. And die of heat, but, oh, well, they were there, standing in the doorway of her home in the middle of summer and she just grabbed them to wear. Oh well. The things people have in their doorways. In summer.

From head to toe: perfection. Hair, sunglasses, lipstick.

Pause here.

Rule: red lipstick on tanned skin is so, so good! Although most would think that it’s not. Pf! Try it in summer. Not much make-up on. Almost at all. Or at all. And red, matte lipstick. Man! Note: the attitude, chicks, the attitude to it is the key. If you don’t feel it, don’t do it. Pick grey. Just kidding.

Moving on.

The t-shirt. A bit spooky (unless you are an Iron Maiden fan), but the colours in it and the 1000 times you could bet she has worn it makes it so damn cool. And this, too, is yet another story post. When things you wore a million time could tell stories. Man, I’ve been looking for a t-shirt like this since… A long time. I still am.

The shorts are there to complement the whole va-va-voom (without any purpose, of course) in the perfect (here) shade of jeans. Mm.

The nails are yummy. And those things on the forearms. I don’t know what those are, but they are here to say “Hey!” while winking.

Bat goddess

Giovana Battaglia is not new to OZ. She’s been here once and she is here to stay. She’s just so cool and she is wearing this dress. This dress!

ozinparis-bat-gio-lookoftheday

@bat_gio.

It is the view, no doubt (Santorini). No (English). Not. No (Italian). Si. It is this dress and the whole va-va-accessorising going on. Now what is this? It is almost indescribable, yet so very simple. The flip-flops (pf!), the sunglasses, the earrings, the bracelet, the bag. And the hair. It make look like random, but it is random my ass.

Perfection. Fun.

Find yourself, play with yourself ⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️.

Do smth to turn your Monday into Funday

It’s Monday and it doesn’t have to be one of those “Oh God bla”. It’s just another day in paradise and this is just a title of a song, hardly the reality. Or who knows? Maybe this is the paradise. You see? Thoughts like these come along on Mondays.

When I dress on Monday morning, it’s either greys-and-blacks-and-I-am-living-by-myself-on-another-planet or I-am-so-having-fun-today. Believe it or not, clothes do do the trick, regardless of you being into fashion or not. It’s like lipstick. Once you put it on, you know you are on. And this is how a new post is born.

Now! Imagine you wearing the below today. You simply can not wear this top with these pants and be grumpy. You will, at least, be smiling on the inside.

Yooou.

Is this too much for you? I feel you. But not as in “Too much things at once”, but as in “I would just mix them differently”. If so, see below. If not, do it how you feel it (if you feel it) as long as it feels like you. You know, you?

So, you are looking below. Ow ow!

Keep the lipstick, the top, the pants and the bag and wear these for daytime:

And theeeese for the party, if any (lucky you!).

Oh, and theeeese! Because you never know how dirteeey the parteeeey is going to get on Mondeeey.

Never too much stripes

I could write an odyssey to stripes one day.

I mean, look!

ozinparis-stripes

@mukhins

You may be sailing on a beautiful yacht or strolling through Paris or going for a coffee on a Sunday noon morning and feel like “Holiday” is tattooed on your forehead. Ok, wrist. One can never have too many stripes.

Nor too many “Holiday” tattoos.

Let’s say you’re sailing and you are passing by these three ladies (who are sailing, too, duh) and you attentively look at each and every one of the dresses  and observe the attitude matching each and every one of them, look, look! I could wear them all together at the same time. I like, like! That much that it doesn’t even seem too much.

On yourself, as against to your closet, you can only have one striped item. A t-shirt, dress, pair of pants, hat, bag, pair of sneakers. But it always depends on how much is too much for you. You can cover yourself up in head to toe stripes and if so, send me a message. I would love to be your friend!

Extravagant much, though? Mix your one striped piece with a fierce pair of sandals and throw your hair up in the air.

Or with the most unexpected bag.

You and your boyfriend/girlfriend both wearing stripes for lunch on Sunday? Well, that is too much, regardless of how much is too much for you. Neah, if it still isn’t, you really have to hit the “Contact us” button!

Stay tuned. And in love.

Aww.

Julia is running to a party

ozinparis-juliasarrjamois

Julia always seems to have a party on her own. On herself. Yes, on. By herself or with anyone else, it really doesn’t matter. She’s all about the “whateva’, man, whateva'” or this is, at least, the mood she is trying to induce. Or whateva’. The clothes on her, on the other hand, are dancing all the time.

Fun, fun, fun.

Just the right amount of vodka in her cranberry juice, the perfect music, the coolest crowd, the awesome mood, the hands in the air, your crush there. This is the perfect party Julia is always setting for her clothes. Lucky clothes. No. Lucky Julia.

The way she mixes the colours, the prints, the cuts, the textures, the fabrics, the accessories (or the absence of them), the heels, the no-heels on her body is the way that very few would succeed in doing. Yes, the colour of her skin and the hair are the pepper and the salt in the equation.

Damn, I gotta get a tan. Fast! #firstworldwarproblems

When really wanting to wear a crazy skirt (and by crazy I mean a colour like that or a print like… Crazy!), pair it with the simplest t-shirt in the right hue and the simplest heels or sneakers. Or go wild and pair with whatever the level of craziness you feel like reaching today. Just don’t forget your smile (or better yet, laugh) and your attitude. Ever.

Hey, Julia, say cheese! Or pizza! Or give me your clothes and I will smile like there is no tomorrow. Or the day after tomorrow. And so on.

Hey, it’s Saturday!

Buh-bye, summer!

It seems like summer’s gone. I got the chance to say “See ya!”.

Oh, those summer nights!

Oh, those summer nights!

I looked back at it, sighed, smiled and let it go (for a while). Because there is this morning when you wake up at your usual hour (mine is 7) and the sun is not there yet. There is this moment in the evening and you’re outside (more…)

Elena Perminova. The cool in the Russian Roulette.

Instagram became the extension of my hands these days. It is about following cool, fresh, funny, talented people and interesting media channels, rather than only posting stuff myself. Can’t deny though, it is getting to me. One from my “following” list is this nowadays cinderella, the bad girl gone good, the fierce cheekbones and legs going by the name of Elena Perminova.

You can see her everywhere.

oz-lena-31

I wanted to know who she is from the first picture I saw her in. Yes, she has this flamboyant style, almost impossible to reproduce. And no, it’s not only about the expensive clothes she wears. One can not put a finger on the fashion style that would describe her best. It’s in her flair. The colours, the textures, the prints are always swirling perfectly with the hair, the accessories and, most importantly, with the attitude. Yet again! Maybe it comes from the easiness she mixes them all with, maybe from the fun she has in the meantime. Or better yet, from both. It doesn’t matter since she is throwing out a party for the eyes each time she gets under clothes. Enjoy!

The story behind her is almost as exciting as her style. Born in Siberia, went to prison at the age of 16 for being an exctasy dealer in clubs with the twice-her-age-then boyfriend, freed by her “angel” (as she calls him now) Alexander Lebedev (a former KGB agent, a billionaire media magnate who is in open opposition to Vladimir Putin and, moreover, runs the UK’s London Evening and The Independent), whom she married and has 3 children with. Next thing you know she is one of the “It girls” right now, part of the hottest paparazzi frenzy, the Russian “It girls”, that is. Uh! I know.
