Adored by Retro..

Retro is a culturally outdated or aged style, trend, mode, or fashion, from the overall post-modern past, but have since that time become functionally or superficially the norm once again. The use of "retro" style iconography and imagery interjected into post-modern art, advertising, mass media, etc. has occurred from around the time of the industrial revolution to present day.



Retro fashion is a clothing style which consists in wearing clothes commonly used in the past. This way of clothing often includes garments and accessories that are characteristic of such times, and many people use them in an exaggerated way and in combination with current clothing. Examples are: leather handbags from the 50s, "bell-bottom jeans", big sunglasses, funky jackets (commonly Adidas Classics) and shoes, small neckties, chiffon scarves, sport equipment, etc. Makeup may also play a part in feminine retro fashions, with focal points being heavily-lined eyes and bright red lipstick; hairstyles such as pompadours, ponytails, and ducktails may be adopted, as well as styles that model film stars of the 1940s and '50s.


Today I drowned into the world of retro.. and I found it very charming.. Retro is so incredibly feminine which means sexy.. And that means it's perfect for VP.. 
What do you think about retro style?

Report from the streets of Riga..

Recently I did the guest post for the absolutely great fashion and music blog Pink Dossier.. So, I decided to share it with you too..


 I'm glad to share a post with you about the people and fashion from the streets of my home Riga, Latvia. Naturally, I'm from Riga, the capital of Latvia. All the pictures were taken by me, Victoria Passion, on the streets of Riga.

We are all so different and that's so amazing. If it wasn’t so the world would be uninspiring and a complete disaster!

What I appreciate the most is diversity. We all have fashion--fashion is everywhere--on the streets, in the window-cases, in magazines, everywhere, but style is the gift which not all of us have.

I was lucky to catch few a of the most stylish men in the Riga:






Juris Lisenko is a musician/singer and one of the most stylish men in Latvia. I was at the beauty salon "Stila Galerija" and caught him there in his stylish pants from Vivienne Westwood. 







Janis Strapcans is another musician/singer and friend of mine who I also caught on the streets. He's got his style and that's why he doesn't need the fashion. He is always smiling and that makes him so charming.




I like the people who think about their fashion and their style before they leave the home. I don't care if I like it or not, or whether or not I would  wear it too. I care about the colours in their outfit, I like to see how they are playing with them, how they mix them. I care about the message that every outfit gives. I care about the creativity and simplicity, about femininity and masculinity...and about a lot more.















While I was looking at the people on the streets some of them were looking at me too :)

Guest post - Fashion as art..

Thanks to my dear fellow blogger Ire from Voguish for the great post.. Enjoy it..

Fashion, I've always felt, like art, is an expression of how you feel. It is a medium through which you can convey your thoughts and feelings to the outside world. Although this is sometimes true for street style and pret-a-porter collections, the art in fashion is truly expressed in couture collections.

Elie Saab is one of the greatest fashion designers in my opinion. He is one of the few designers whose couture line really expresses something.

 

His work really reminds me of the artist Edgar Degas, with the pastel colours. I think they both evoke the same emotions within the onlookers. You get a sense of peace and purity with the soft colours used.


Alexis Mabille, another great fashion designer, has a completely different approach to couture. His work is highly minimalist, with the use of only one or two block colours.


His work reminds me of the artist, Claude Tousignant, who incorporates the same technique.

Fashion Trend - Hot pants..




More and more we can see underwear as the outerwear.. One of this Spring/Summer Must Haves is definitely the hot pants or at least boy shorts..

Two basic rules for the hot pants:
You have to be very confident personality, otherwise you'll feel yourself very badly and of course you'll look the same way..
You have to be on a great figure..

Inspiration board for hot pants..


I'm think I'm gonna buy some hot pants.. and I like the hot pants combination with blazer or blouse.. and high heels.. mmm.. I'm getting quite exiting about wearing hot pants.. By the way having some nice hot pants would be great way how to cheer myself up for my everyday running.. one more important thing, regarding some statistics - legs are the part of woman body which the men notice first.. So, girls lets be well shaped and lets show our beautiful legs to the world..
What are your thoughts about hot pants? Do you have ones? or Will you buy ones? If you have ones, please tell us where you bought them.. I guess I wouldn't be the only one who would like to know that.. :)

Always well shaped
&
Always yours,

P.S. If you need any suggestions about healthy lifestyle, please feel free to ask me.. I would be glad to help with some advices or even more..
I'm considering to start consulting the people professionally about the healthy food and life, because I don't like what I see on the streets lately.. We need to care more about ourselves..

The corset..


"The corset is a garment with a long and controversial history. A rigid bodice, usually incorporating vertical and diagonal boning, and laced together, the corset was designed to shape the female torso to the fashionable silhouette of the period. Corsets have been worn by women in the Western world from the sixteenth century through the early twentieth century, at which point girdles and brassieres replaced them. Men, especially dandies and military officers, have also sometimes worn corsets. The primary significance of the corset, however, is its role as an essential element of women’s fashionable dress for a period of about 400 years." ~Encyclopedia of Clothing and Fashion


I adore corsets because nothing can make your body more beautiful and magnetic than sophisticated corset.. I love that we can see the details from underwear on the streets and in the night clubs.. But there is one huge "but", it has to be well-becoming with the place you are and of-course with your body type..

[VP: Every woman should have at least one corset.. Because nothing can be more powerful than sexy woman.. Man can't resist the woman in gorgeous corset..]

Always yours,

Peerless Gabrielle Chanel by Douglas Kirkland


"The work of Gabrielle Chanel, with its acknowledgment of the realities of women in the 20th century, was an elegantly conceptualized modernism," said Harold Koda, Curator in Charge of The Costume Institute. "In creating a wardrobe for herself, Chanel invented an idea of the new woman. The bare facts of Chanel's life—deprived of the autobiographical embellishments she evolved over time and the conjecture of others—are dramatic, but spare. Therefore it is her work, which transcended class barriers and revolutionized the ideals of dress, that is the ultimate testament to her life."

Douglas Kirkland - COCO CHANEL

“I don't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little - if only out of politeness. And then, you never know, maybe that's the day she has a date with destiny. And it's best to be as pretty as possible for destiny.” ~Coco Chanel
