44. Six ways to style a Little Black Dress

Hey hey lovelies!

It's Caro here today, coming up with a post about fashion! Specially, I wanted to talk about a MUST in my closet: my little black dress. I got it when I was like 15 years old from Stradivarius and I still use it... And Mire can tell you, I literally don't take it off!
So I wanted to share with you 6 differents outfits I wore with the same dress, 'cause I wear it for all kind of occasions and during the whole year!
There you go...

Simple! The dress, tights, and you can't see the shoes but they were my chelsea boots from Office! All black everything as usual but I reckon the dress gives that girly and classy touch! Also, if it's chilly or cold, you just put a black coat on and:

Voilá! The same outfit but more winter-ish!
Another autumn outfit with the same dress is the following:

Just added a camel vintage coat, a more girly tights and high-heel boots, and just looks totally different, doesn't it?

Also, wore this dress to a looooot of parties and nights out:

Both pictures are from the summer as you can see, but also wear it when it's cold, with tights, high heels and a blazer! Perfect for dress up night out ;)

Another outfit from summer but more casual and to wear day to day:

XL bag, kimono, sandals and big sunnies!

As you can see, there are soooo many ways to combine the same piece of clothe so it looks totally different!

Do you have that MUST on your closet you couldn't live without? What is it?

Thank you so muuuch for reading once again, your support really means a lot!

43. STYLE CRUSH: Taylor Swift

Hey hey beauts!
Can't believe we're on the 6th STYLE CRUSH post! Wow! As if!
This week we're talking about Taylor Swift. We ABSOLUTELY adore her. However, we don't usually like her style. We think it's way too classy for such a young girl and that she seems older sometimes. "Why are you making her your #STYLECRUSH today then?" you must be wondering, well, we think she's the absolute queen of the red carpet.
We love her usual sparkly dresses, which are like her thing.

She's also flawless when she wears all black, so smart (actually that high waisted leggings and bralet outfit is one of our faves from her EVER!)

Not to mention she looks absolutely 50's glamorous in long dresses, she reminds us of The Great Gatsby somehow!

Her tall frame looks amazing in two pieces and coords as well!

When it comes to casual ocasions she usually still wears either massive or kitten heels and clasy clothes but when we really really like her is when she goes all british-androginous-casual with hats. Actually I think that the outfit with the kitten loafers is one of her best ones yet! And that bell-sleeved dress... DAMN!

Do you like Miss Swift? What do you think about her style? Do you like it better when she goes classic or more casual?

42. Urban Outfitters Barcelona opening day

Hello hello honnays!
It's Mire here! Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend and smiling lots!
Thursday was an eventful day for me! Uni in the morning and in the afternoon it was Urban Outfitters opening event in Barcelona (thanks god we have on in our city now!)
I went for a girly makeup look (ask away if you wanna know which products I used or let me know if you'd be interested on a post on it!)

The local was massive! I actually love most of the clothes and shoes and well just everything Ijust wish it was a bit cheaper!

There was free beers and cocktails so as you can imagine we had quite a few hahah

Iworemy new pastel jumper but I thought I'd rock it up a bit eith my black ripped skinnies and leather jacket! What do yall think? (All in black there's our babe Cris -check out her blog, it's fantastic!)

There were quite a few piñatas and you had the possibility to win goodies' bags and 500€ to spend at the store. However, I didn't stay that long!

There was also s transfer tattoo workshop so we obviously had to get some! They were all so hipster (and I didn't really like them) but kinda loved the unicorn one so I went for it!

Afterwards, we rushed over to a gig to see a Spanish band called Dvicio. I don't usually listen to Spanish music but I think theirs is amazing (however, if you don't understand Spanish, they have a few covers in English, and one in Brazilian on their youtube channel: DVICIO OFICIAL) and they're all nice lads!

Somehow we ended up clubbing (which was completely unplanned!) and it was a blast even though we were knackered the next day! 
If you wanna see more pictures from this day (and my everyday actually) go over to my instagram!

What have yall been up to recently? Also, feel free to leave your insta username so we can have a look!

40. STYLE CRUSH: Ariana Grande

Hello beauts!
Here we are again with our weekly STYLE CRUSH post! Today's a bit of a shocking one. If you know us you'll know we're not Ariana Grande fans AT ALL. Yes, we do jam to her songs, A LOT, but she's just not our favourite person ever.
However, we've been loving some of her outfits lately. She's made such a style transition and we actually bow down to her new stylist. Shes swapped colourful clothes and bows for smarter clothes mainly in monochrome.

She's never off her heels nowadays (how on Earth does she do it?!). We love when she's dressed more casual and wears a crop top/fluffy cropped jumper with high waisted jeans.

Pencil midi skirts are another must in her wardrobe for especial occasions. We think they look fabulous with crop top, lace and fur. Soooo classy yet sexy!

On red carpet events she usually wears either little or midi dresses in block colouts wish court heels.

The thing we love the most about her style is her bags. She's always wearing iconic Chanel backs and we just WANT. THEM. ALL. 
Oh, and her nails always look perfect!

Also been loving her makeup lately. She uses coral-pink eyeshadows, winged eyeliner and kind of a bold lip, which is sweet yet hot at the same time. We'd wear this on a daily basis with a way more natural foundation!

However, we're not keen (in fact we HATE) her white patent knee high boots. We think they look kinda Pretty Woman-ish.
So that's it for today! I hope this post's surprised those who know us!

Do you like Ariana Grande? What do you think of her recent style transition?

39. Starbucks red cups

Hello beauts!
How have yall been this weekend? We got together on Saturday afternoon and finally got to try Starbucks Christmas drinks! We are super excited is that time again with the red cups and stuff! Mire had a gingerbread latte (and is currently obsessing over it) and Caro had a Honey Almond chocolate (well both of them wanna marry the drinks but... Don't think it's possible innit?)
We were well happy that there was also red velvet cake because it's our fave (isn't it everyone's??) but we behaved since we both had had sushi (we'll do a post on sushi rests soon).

The best part, appart from the company was that the barista was the actual cuttest and he drew a smiley on our cups, how lovely! We love that kinda people! All the magic's in the little things! Anyway, our other favourite thing was that we had it at El Maremagnum. It's a shopping centre located in a pier and the view's incredible. It doesn't have all the shops but the H&M there is our fave! And the view at Starbucks is breathtaking! A must-go if you ever visit Barcelona!

Mire was wearing her new Boohoo skort (which she L O V E S!), H&M knee high boots, Forever21 jumper, Mango leather jacket and Zara backpack.

Caro was wearing her beloved H&M playsuit, Pull&Bear shoes, thrifted denim jacket and H&M scarf.

It was very windy, we haven't planned taking pics and we had been out for the whole day so we apologize for our faces/hairs/outfits!

What have you been up to this weekend??

Hello hello!
We've had kind of a busy week so are having difficulties to catch up on the blogs we follow but hey we're making it (I think!)
We've come up with a quick post with the items we have on our ASOS wishlist. Some of them are not too wintery because it's just started to be cold now in Barcelona and most of them are shoes because well... One can never have too many shoes, right?
Anyway, we LOVE ASOS because they have everything that's on trend at the moment and there's just something for everyone!

What's on your wishlist?! Are you as much of an ASOS fan as we are?

Thanks for being so lovely and reading xx

36. Favourite Autumn lipsticks

Hi everyone! 

It's Mire on the keyboard today and I'm gonna show you my favourite lipsticks for this time of the year. 

I absolutely love dark, vampy lips and taupe nude tones on this colder time of the year. 

1. NYX soft matte lip cream Stockholm
This is one of my favourite lipsticks EVER! I actually own a couple more from this range: London and Abu Dhabi, which are also quite taupe nude. It looks super matte and lasts ages on the lips and I find it doesn't dry my lips as much as other matte lippies.

2. True colour lipstick sheen Mulberry
This is the darkest shade of lippy I own. It is a dark plum colour that looks almost black on. It's really creamy and doesn't dry my lips at all. However, I find it kind of runs around my lips after awhile if I'm not using a lipliner, but I usually use it and it looks great then. 

3. Rimmel Moisture renew 470 Glam Plum Fulham
This is a berry colour that's halfway between a dark red and a plum tone, I'd say it's oxblood. It's really creamy and soft but it does need reapplying as it doesn't last ages on.

4. Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipstick 077 Asia
This was the first Kylie Jenner kinda lipstick I bought because it was a really good one for that for just about 4€. It's not too matte, it's got a subtle shimmer but you can't really see it on the lips (I don't like shimmery lipsticks so I wouldn't wear it otherwise!). It's a nice taupe dark nude really soft lipstick.  It also looks really similar to the colour the Little Mix girls usually wear.

5. MAC Matte Velvet Teddy
This is one of the key lipsticks for the Kylie Jenner lip. I absolutely love it, it's matte but it doesn't looks extremely matte nor it's drying. It's a nice brownie nude shade.

6. MAC Satin Brave
This is the other key profuct for that Kylie Jenner pout. It is a satin lipstick in a natural pink shade that sweetens up any makeup look.

7. MAC Satin Media
This my first MAC lipstick ever and also my favourite one. I got it as a present four years ago for Christmas when I wasn't really into MAC but was absolutely head over heels for it. It's a gorgeous dark oxblood shade that looks amazing with natural eyes.

8. MAC Retro Matte Riri Woo
This is a matte red lipstick from Rihanna's collection. I know it's quite a bright shade for this time of the year but I find it brightens up my face and I love it especially for nights out. 

As you've seen, I'm quite a fan of a matte lip rather than a satin lip and I very rarely use lipgloss. 
Hope you all enjoyed the post, thanks for reading, commenting and following, we appreciate yall A LOT! 

What are your favourite Autumn lipsticks?

35. STYLE CRUSH: Vanessa Hudgens

Hi there! 
First of all we wanted to thank yall because we just hit 100 followers on bloglovin! It might not seem like much but honestly, for us having started proper blogging just recently it is A LOT! We appreciate that you guys are interested in what we have to say! THANK YOU!

Today we're talking about actress and festival goddess Vanessa Hudgens. Now she is everyone's festival inspiration (we'll do a post about that come the festival season) but she's also our everyday inspiration.

Her style is the definition of boho-chic. She loves printed maxi skirts and crop tops with lots of gold and turquoise jewellery and floppy hats.

She likes to dress it up for events wearing simple and classy outfits but keeping that boho vibe.

To add up she's absolutely gorgeous (them cheekbones!!!) and her manicure is always on point!

Do you like Vanessa? Are you a fan of her boho style?
