This week item of the week is the Zara long denim jacket.
Denim has been a favorite trend for quite some time now. Most stores even have a denim section with items such as shirts, jackets, skirts, overalls etc…
I found this long denim jacket from Zara’s I am Denim collection. Long sleeves, ripped details, and side pockets, this jacket can be worn as a dress alone or over different outfit as a jacket.

This week’s item must have is the western inspired accessory known as the bandana.
Worn around the neck, or as a headband to pull back your hair, this 90’s go-to accessory is making a major comeback (like most 90s trends these days).
Celebs and bloggers have been spotted rocking this extra, making it the hottest accessory at coachella and a street style favorite!

Which was your favorite look?
To me women in men’s clothing allure a certain je ne sais quoi. And let’s be honest, us women wear anything better than men.
I’m wearing H&M men’s long sleeve shirt, André wedges and Juicy Couture bag.
You’ve seen all the stars sport this look. Different versions of it have been on every single runway this past year. Problem is, you can’t seem to get it right. Don’t worry, not all women are born with the steady hand of Mr. Miyagi. So here are a couple of tips to get a perfect cat eye every time.
First of all, you have to know where to draw the line. I suggest either following the natural curve of the bottom eyelid or taking your eyeliner (or angled brush) and using it as a ruler from the side of your nose to the tip of your eye. This should provide the perfect line for your cat eye. Now are you ready?
1. Use a light pencil first.
Using a light eyeliner to draw the cat eye flick makes it not only easier to draw, it prevents bleeding of liquid products. It’s also much less of a pain to remove if you miss the mark.
2. Use an angled brush
Follow the curve of your bottom eye and lightly pat the brush until you have the length and consistency of color you want. Using eyeshadow also makes the look a lot more soft.
3. And when all else fails: Use an old business card
This is foolproof. Use an old business card to draw both lines. This prevents bleeding, and gives you a clean and sharp line.
Now have fun experimenting with colors and lengths.
