Summer Kind Of Wonderful

All the bad weather, the rain, the wind and the cold days, ended up being a little bit useful considering the fact that by not going out as often as I wished, I managed to eventually catch up on some of my favorite indoor activities. With summer officially starting yesterday, I could not help but dream about the warm weather, the sun and the comfortable, easy and light clothes waiting patiently to be worn.

One of my favorite ways to relax, while also doing some much needed “research”, is by browsing tens of celebrity pictures, caught during their off-hours; the perfect way to spot the trends, get lots of inspiration and find new favorites. I could do it for hours !

In the last couple of days, I came across with three different looks that celebrities rocked in May and I thought I’d share my personal thoughts on them, with all of you. I plan on doing this more often!

Oteea's-PicksFor months now, I have been admiring Ali Larter’s new style, that’s so clean, so chic and so effortless. I can’t wait to pair my new white shorts with an oxford style shirt – something that is yet missing in my wardrobe. I love how Ali accessorized with just a bright colored necklace, sand heels/ bag and cool sunnies. Her happiness, much like her stylish look, is contagious

Yes, as previously mentioned, I’m all for white this summer ! And Eva Longoria proves how this is a great choice, looking picture perfect in her white Victoria Beckham Collection mini-dress. I’m already thinking of the many more ways I could style that kind of a simple, yet effective dress. Good thing Eva’s accessories never let down – a brown Hermes bag, a pair of edgy Giuseppe Zanotti Women’s E10191 Open-Toe Ankle Boots and a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses is all it takes to look flawless on a sunny day.

If I could, I would. I would definitely build my new style based on retro-chic inspired pieces only – femininity at its best. Wanna guess who inspires me? Of course it’s Taylor Swift, can you think of a more girlier-girl than her? A loose white shirt and a pair of denim shorts, both by Joe’s, seem like the comfortable way to take on the streets on a hot summer day. Taylor completed her look with Elizabeth and James Benedict sunglasses, a Coach purse and ballet flats. The red lipstick and blue nails look great too.

See you soon, I’m off adding the oxford style shirt to my shopping wish-list ! XO

Taylor Swift – Out & About in Beverly Hills

Amongst all the modern cuts and structured shapes that we see our favorite celebrities wear daily, Taylor Swift‘s outfits always feel like a breath of fresh air, due to their simplicity and the adorable retro vibe touches.

I guess no one beats Taylor at that.


Spotted in Beverly Hills on April 23, the super talented country singer strolled in a mid-length Gorman Ipanema jersey dress that features a fitted top, mid-length sleeves and a full skirt with yarn dyed stripe.

Taylor styled her look with a colorful Lauren Merkin Stevie bag and added another pop of color via her red Frye sandals.

Ray-Ban Classic Wayfarer Polarized 50mm sunglasses, pearl studs, a baby blue nail polish and matte red lips provided the finishing touches.

A classy look for those sunny summer days approaching, don’t you think ?


Taylor Swift – 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards

Taylor Swift had an eventful couple of days at the end of last week, so after gracing the Orange Carpet at the  2012 Kids’ Choice Awards, the singer departed for Las Vegas, Nevada, where she stepped out on the Red Carpet for the 2012 Academy Of Country Music Awards.


For this occasion, Taylor left behind every element of her famous signature style and reinvented herself by wearing a sophisticated J.Mendel Fall 2012 gown.

The white sleeveless floor-length cutout gown with gold inserts, was teamed with the beautiful Christian Louboutin Summerissima platform sandals.

TS LookLorraine Schwartz jewels, wavy locks, smokey eyes and nude lips complemented Taylor’s chic appearance.

She was most definitely one of the best dressed stars at the event.

Taylor Swift – 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards

Stepping out on the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards Red Carpet and sporting her signature lady-like style,Taylor Swift, who was presented with the Big Help Award for her ongoing charitable work, looked darling in a Maria Lucia Hohan ballerina gown.


The nude Connie dress, with a medium length tulle skirt and an elasticated bodice, was paired with gold Nicholas Kirkwood sandals and styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. You might remember Leslie Mann wearing a slightly different version of this gown, earlier this year at the 2012 Writers Guild Awards.

Taylor completed her look with a romantic braided updo, a peachy coral lipstick and blue nails.

Taylor Swift – 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards

This weekend was filled with big events, as both the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards and the 2012 BAFTA Awards, took place on Sunday. Luckily for my tight schedule, but unluckily for my high set expectations, the Red Carpet at the BAFTAS, was more like a huge disappointment, as one single look stood out for me the entire night, but more on that later.

The story was totally different at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards, where the ladies really did their best to impress. The first one to caught my eye, was the lovely Taylor Swift, as she shined in a Zuhair Murad Fall 2011 Couture gown, much like the ones she loves to wear at these type of events.


The high-neck nude mermaid gown, displayed an intricate design of gold and rose-gold beading, hand-embroidered on silk. Paired with Prada Metallic Leather Criss-Cross Platform sandals, the gown looked absolutely stunning on Taylor.

To match the Far East influences on her dress, Taylor opted for a sleek high bun, neutral make up in bronze shades and delicate gold jewelry.

Complementing the winning look, Taylor received two Grammy Awards on the big night, so congratulations are in order for both wins.


54th Annual Grammy Award Winners:

Album of the Year: “21,” Adele

Record of the Year: “Rolling in the Deep,” Adele

Song of the Year: “Rolling in the Deep,” Adele Adkins & Paul Epworth

New Artist: Bon Iver

Pop Solo Performance: “Someone Like You,” Adele


Taylor Swift – Crochet Dress Inspired Look

I’m developing a mild Taylor Swift obsession lately, aren’t I ? Well, it’s a good thing she’s a sophisticated lady than, otherwise who knows what examples of good taste I would be constantly giving you ? I love the fact that she is such a girlie girl no matter the circumstances, and today, I was inspired by this feminine, yet comfortable looking outfit, that the singer wore on January 29, whilst shopping a flea market. Can’t wait for summer to arrive, I’m tired of wearing layers and layers of clothes !

Delicate crochet and lace dresses make an interesting trend you could follow this year, as they easily transcend from day to evening and night, and could be the perfect choice either for a morning walk, an afternoon at the beach, or an evening out celebrating.


I used : JAXElbow-Sleeved Crochet Dress; Old NavyWomen’s Crossbody Saddle Purses; MangoOwn Necklace In Coral; MonsoonSimple Skinny Belt; FRYEWomen’s Maya Woven Peep Pump .

Taylor Swift is wearing an Anthropologie dress, a Ralph Lauren purse and FRYE peep pumps, the same I used in the inspired outfit.

Pretty, pretty things.
