Easy & Nice

 The other day we had some fun enjoying the sun in our garden during the late afternoon.
We were drinking some Izi Nice drinks that we recently discovered.
These drinks were made thinking about women and giving them a nice, soft energy drink.
We tried the peach fizzy energy drink and the mint green tea.
Of course, it's delicious and not as strong as brands like Redbull or Monster.
The drinks are also made to be mixed with Vodka or champagne ;)
Autumn was wearing a grey sweater from H&M, peach pants from NewLook, tassels wedges 
from Zara and H&M jewelry. Summy was wearing an H&M kaki tank top, Calzedonia Miami leggings,
La Soule neon pink espadrilles and H&M rings.

PS : we looove the Izi Nice's flamingo logo :)

Inspiration #7

 Crazy in love with those sunglasses...
 ... and we wouldn't say no to these pretty shoes !
 We also like the shape of these two dresses from
The colors are beautiful (and they're both available in other shades!), the lenghts are perfect
and we appreciate the feminity of the sheer fabrics. What do you think ?
The navy is the Jupiter robe courte and we adore the form of the up part with the heart bustier,
it's so chic and elegant, plus it's made from organza and mousseline so it just feels like the perfect
girl treat, right ? The white dress is Robe été courte, but it's not just a summer dress ; you can also wear it during autumn/winter with tights underneath. The Peter Pan collar is really cute and it makes us think of Spencer Hastings' style on #PLL <3
The colors of this editorial are delightful !!!
Rag & Bone leather belt - Monki "Alli" skirt - Balenciaga extra small saddle bag - Primark hat -
NewLook cat ring - Primark yellow dress - Oasis blue bracelet -

Career - Fashion designer @ Wildfox Couture - Emily Faulstich

 There's no need to present the Wildfox Couture brand, as we're all marked forever with the print of their
amazing knit sweaters. The skeleton, the love potion, the giant smiley face... it's simple :

It's been a while that we had this project : finding an inspirational fashion designer that would give us answers and let us share them with you ! We immediately thought of Wildfox Couture, a brand that we can relate to, that speaks to us
in terms of pop culture and that inspires us each time they produce a lookbook. Plus their story really is a dream
to a lots a girls. Emily and Kimberley were childhood friends with one big dream : creating a fashion label
with the perfect pieces they couldn't find in stores. So they created Wildfox Couture !

Today, we're interviewing Emily (picture above)
Hi Emily, can you describe yourself and tell us what was your dream job as a child ?
I'm a California girl from Santa Barbara, a photographer and a fashion designer, traveler and lover of summer
and pink lipstick. My dream job as a child was to be a famous movie star or a singer on broadway.

How did you become interested in fashion and design ?
I remember my friend in 5th grade had those Barbie Fashion Plates, and I borrowed them for fun and carried them everywhere making cheesy outfits. I studied illustration in college and always loved fonts & pretty packaging...
so design was a huge passion which naturally fell into place when I started working in fashion. 

What was your first job and how did you make your way into the fashion industry ?
My first job out of college was a design assistant at a clothing line in Los Angeles,
I worked there for a year and decided to leave to start Wildfox!

Where do the ideas come from in the first place and what are your inspirations ?
I find inspiration in everything!! I carry around a scrapbook to tape in magazine pulls and write out ideas. 
Things that are inspirational: Beautiful movies & colors in films, nice text layouts, minimal and
white washed interiors, happy songs and palm trees, vacations and polaroids. 

What do you love about the fashion industry ?
I love designing a line around a specific theme and really getting into it. Also I find fashion similar to theater...
the way you can change your look and pretend to be somebody else for fun. 

Can you explain how Wildfox Couture started and how did you decide to work with Kimberley ?
Kim and I had an epiphany in my bedroom in 2007 and realised we could make a clothing line of things
we loved and couldn't find anywhere else. We always borrowed our boyfriends vintage t-shirts that were paper thin
and felt so flattering. We couldn't find anything in stores quite like the vintage tees and decided to make them ourselves!

Who's the Wildfox girl ?
She is confident and fun-loving, always ready to have a party, make cookies in her underwear, dye her hair pink.
She loves her girlfriends and always has a crush, loves kittens and ice cream and lives life like a fairy tale.
How big is the Wildfox staff now ?
Can't even count !!!

Wildfox started with knitted sweaters and tshirts and now
you produce a denim line, kids, jewelry, swimwear and so on..
How did it happen and what's next for Wildfox ?
We started with cotton tees, then fleece and our "vintage varsity" fabric. What happened next was us brainstorming about what we dreamed of making and we were able to get in contact with people who could make us beautifully knit sweaters with sequins and intarsia. From that we created our "White Label" collection that I had always planned on adding... then denim, sunglasses, swim, shoes with Jeffrey Campbell, and kids, which was kind of my pet project :)
We heard you're working on a major project now, but how was it to work with a close friend ?
It was fun to collaborate, our ideas always complimented the other. It can get hard sometimes to work so closely to someone, especially a best friend, but we always got through the hard times and were very proud of our work!

There's never a typical day but how do you manage your work daily ?
When I worked at Wildfox it was always different. Sometimes it was a normal workday and we would leave around 6pm,
but a lot of times we stayed well past 10 and usually during photoshoots we worked weekends and till midnight
making sure everything was perfect!! Those are actually fun times to look back on, creating the
best outfits for the models and gathering props from around Los Angeles. 

What do you think set your designs apart ?
Well, I think it's the lifestyle we portray and the love we put into designing the clothes.

What advice would you give to young people aspiring to work in fashion ?
Work every day and power throught the tough times, you can do anything you want, really !!!

We hope you had fun reading this interview and we would like to thank Emily so much for her honest answers !
All pictures come from her tumblr : and also check out
her new one for major inspiration :

On September 6th, Emily will launch her new website, and of course, we'll keep you posted :)

▶ Shopaholic Tag :)

Yay ! We're back today with a new video, the Shopaholic Tag !
We had fun rumbling about clothes, one of our all-time hobby !
We used to be kind of shopaholic several years ago, but now we try to limit our urges
to shop, even thought it's really hard sometimes to not buy anything ;-)

Do you, guys, love to go shopping like us ?
What are you generally shopping for, what do you buy ?
What catches your eyes and what you would never buy ?
Share with us, we want to know ! :)

Moodboard - Wedding

 We love summer as a wedding's season, so we decided to make a moodboard.
First, we need to say, we're obsessed with Emma's wedding from A Beautiful Mess,
look at the handmade dress and happiness on their faces !
If you're looking for a wedding gown or a bridesmaid dress, don't forget to
check first, they have incredible pieces for great price ;-)
The first on the left is called Robe de mariée Empire and has an amazing
embroided bustier and the second on the right is Robe de mariée moderne and we fell in love
with the texture of the dress, and also the fact that it's a high-low kind of dress. It's trendy and romantic and flowy.
Each dress cost less than 200euros and you can even choose the color if you don't want a white wedding ;)
Which is your favourite one ?

Hidden Garden

I always love to chill in my dad's garden, it's such a beautiful and quiet place...
This day I was wearing my Stradivarius navy blouse with Zebra pants, H&M bracelets, and also
my fringe suede bag and striped espadrilles from France :)

Inspiration #6

If you are still looking for a unique kind of swimsuit, here you go !
We just discovered the brand Minimale Animale which makes really edgy pieces.
The two swimsuits above are from their Spring 2013 collection and we loooove them !
The white one is called Junk Love and the black is the Stephanie one.

This summer, we went to Biarritz (France) and we had LOADS of fun together, as this video shows.
Yep, we're pretty crazy, hope it'll help you have a good day ;-)

 How genius is this dress ? We're obsessed.

 We just can't stop staring at model Magdalena's unique beauty.
Her outfit and make-up are definitely on our mind for this autumn !

Just can't get enough of Fashgif tumblr ! 
Here are our three favourites :)
