DOROTHY PERKINS ALL ABOUT ROSE LAUNCHING

So around last 2 week, I was invited to Dorothy Perkins Exclusive Collection Launching, All About Rose. I said yes right away when they invited me since I actually love their brand for their pretty feminine collections (you can see how I love something girly and sweet). So without further intro, let's see how the event goes right away through my pics!
The event was in one of their store, Dorothy Perkins Central Park. Just as we enter the store,  we are already treated with such a pretty rose themed tea party set, just as the collection's name. I love!
Met Cathy & Michelle at the event, we don't forget to take a pic first for sure.
Pretty dresses and floral set on the front store display. I want all of them.
And here's a corner of their exclusive All About Rose collection. I want to scream pretty!
After we enjoyed chit chat with other bloggers there and enjoying the tea set, I was given a chance by them to choose anything I want from their All About Rose collection, I'm definitely a happy girl back then! So after scrolling and scrolling through their displays, I finally made a tough decision (as all of their collections caught my eyes with such pretty prints and feminine vibes). I finally made up my mind for this piece, which u might already see on my instagram if you follow my account :)
Took a picture with Regina Raquel with our new super pretty clothes.
Zoom zoom to the prettiness
And what a pretty details they have too for this piece!
I have no reason not to love their collection and share it to all of you, and here's another pictures from their official lookbook.
Embrace print this Summer with Dorothy Perkins’ new collection – All About Rose a brand new collection that draws inspiration from our namesake: an English Rose.  This delicious collection of standout dresses, pleated skirts, soft tailoring and stunning separates has been pulled together to mix textures and prints; and encapsulates the floral trend with roses and flower detailing in jacquard, lace, appliqué  and embroidery.
As the name suggests this new 16 piece collection includes the literal Rose print but also has subtle floral insignias and tone on tone stitching to create a feminine and romantic aesthetic that works for every summer occasion.
Building on our British heritage as we fast approach our centenary, All About Rose by Dorothy Perkins is a collection that takes a romanticised stance on florals for summer and uses blush and candy colours mixed with cornflower blues to create a pastel hue.
Key pieces from the collection include the pale pink boyfriend jacket, rose jacquard pencil skirt and matching structured top, pink appliqué floral cropped blouse, the wide leg trouser in print and pastel tones  and the blue and pink exclusive rose print that has been worked onto skirts, tops and dresses.

If you love the collections as much as I do, you can hurry up and visit their stores at Central Park or Grand Indonesia and shop the items. Once again, you need to hurry up because the collection are exclusive, and for sure, it's limited. I actually have another one I'm falling in love with but it already ran out of my size back then, so I hope you don't miss them.

NEW YORK BARBIE DOLL FASHION SPREAD - TRESEMME CHALLENGE

So I've finally come to the last challenge of TRESemme Style Seeker Hunt Road To New York, and the last challenge is creating a fashion spread inspired by New York Style. I definitely love the challenge because fashion photoshoot is definitely my thing, as you know, I always style every shoot for my brand by myself because I love to do it.

Talking about New York Style, most people will imagine about the chic NY fashionista or street stylers, we know that it is something most people will remember first when talking about NY. But on this challenge, I want to bring you to another side of New York Style, something more fun, a little bit cute looking and some kind of preppy as well. Let's take a look at different style of New York, inspired by the American Barbie Doll and New York preppy style.

My inspirations: Blair Waldorf, Alice+Olivia, Kate Spade.

So here's my fashion spread for the challenge!

Put a wig for the second and third look. Can you see that hair is a ver important part for your look? Just a simple change of hair can totally give you a whole different & new look!
Styled by Me
Blue Plaid Bralette, Pink & White Skirt are from Cloth Inc upcoming summer collection

So inspired by the moodboard above, I created this three looks according to my inspiration sources. For the color palette, I choose pastel color to represent Spring/Summer feeling. The pink coat, polkadot skirt, high collar top, and plaid bralette is definitely my essential items to create this fun, preppy New York look. So, fun prints, high collars and coat are a must have wardrobe to create such look, and a tips from me is, don't wear too much accessories on the arm again, or if you want, opt for a simple and clean bracelet, as that's how New York fun/preppy street stylers do.

For this project, I also got the chance to collaborate with the famous beauty blogger, Lizzie Parra which is my favorite make up artist as well, with her team Olyvia Awuy as the hair stylist, and also my great friend Try Hansen as the photographer, and not to forget, a professional model from 21mm Agency!

You might love to see the behind the scene video on how I create this fashion spread, starting from the make up, photo studio setting, styling, posing choreography until it's done as a final results.

Oh, if some of you ever ask about my no make up look, I forgot to 'makeover' myself because we're so much fun doing the 'barbie', so you can see here :p

So, how do you think about my fashion spread? I hope you like it as my whole team are putting so much effort for this project :)

ALICE+OLIVIA S/S 2014 INSPIRED LOOK - TRESEMME ROAD TO NEW YORK CHALLENGE 2


Most of you maybe haven’t know about the designer, they might be not as famous as DKNY or Marc Jacobs yet, but this brand definitely caught my eye ever since I saw their collection for the first time!

It’s Alice+Olivia, a New York designer brand by Stacey Bended which was first started in 2002. They started the brand by selling a tailored pants, which was based on her idea to make "a trouser sexy," in 2002. Alice + olivia pants gained immediate popularity due in part to their mindful design. Their design is well known with their girly style, with a touch of minimalism and always not too much. Exactly the way I like it. 

Their Spring/Summer 2014 ready to wear collection caught my eyes, again. I fall in love with the feminine touch they resembles in the collection, and how they give a different touch with their previous collection with a touch of preppy, a feminine preppy, or as what the designer said, “it’s preppy meets pretty”. 
So, as we are already entering the second phase of TRESemme Style Seeker Hunt Road To New York, here I go for the second challenge, which is reviewing a New York based designer and create a look inspired by the designer. I definitely didn't think twice to choose Alice+Olivia, their collections are definitely my cup of tea, don't you think so? So... let's see how I create a set of inspired look here ;)

Self-design denim jacket

UNICORN

This fantasy print skirt has been in my wardrobe for almost a year yet I have never wear it before because I haven't got any idea on how to style it. Simple feminine style has always been in my heart, so whenever I feel like exploring a more edgy, boyish or other style, I always try to add some sweet touch on it. 

So I try to give it a touch of whites to make it light and feminine. I also love how the lilac colour on the print totally makes it edgy yet still feminine! I paired this skirt with my current favourite platform shoes from Bershka and a cut off cropped bralette from Cloth Inc upcoming summer collection.
This is my third look for Gogirl X TRESemme Style Seeker Hunt Road To New York for the Challenge 1, if you haven't know what it is, let me tell you about this. Around last two week, TRESemme e-mailed me and some other fashion bloggers to join this competition. I was so excited to know that the prize is a free trip to New York and watch Mercedes Benz Fashion Week live! 
So I went to Gogirl! Office and briefed by Gogirl & TRESemme team, they gave us 3 challenge, the first one is to post our best styles with the theme of upcoming S/S 2015 trends during the week. So here I am accepting the challenge!


Letting my hair flows naturally after using TRESemme shampoo & hair care, totally love the results!

SKY BLUE

Talking about Spring/Summer again, I can always imagine about a clear blue sky filled with white clouds above the mint oceans whenever I think about the season. Pastel mint & sky blue are definitely the colours I can imagine to be in Spring/Summer season, and it's also what I think to be the upcoming Spring/Summer 2015 trends. So here comes my Spring/Summer look inspired by the season itself with a touch of sky blue & pastel mint.

A comfy tank & shorts are definitely my number one must have items for the season. Something with lace is always a good idea to add a simple girly touch that I love. As you know, a simple girly style is definitely my signature style.

What I Wear:
Sky blue halter tank from Cloth Inc
White Lace Flap Skort from Cloth Inc
Pastel Mint Bag from Forever 21
Silver Statement Necklace from Glitter & Co
Bracelet from Mango
White Shoes from Bershka
Sunnies from Hello Smithies

This is also one of the look I submit for Gogirl X TRESemme ID Style Seeker Hunt Road To New York. Please help me to win the competition by liking my outfit posts on my instagram @juliantanoto. It will means a lot for me :)

BRIGHT YELLOW

Spring/Summer is always identical with a bright colour & fun print. Last week I was invited to join Tresemme Style Seeker Hunt Road to New York, and they ask to create a look based on the upcoming S/S 2015 trends, so here I go with this pieces. I'm choosing a light tank as it is the best wardrobe for summer weather, and paired it with this printed flare skirt from Cloth Inc (as you know, I'm a big fan of flare skirt!)
Here's some tips to create a Spring/Summer look like this.
You can choose the colour you like as the key basic piece of your wardrobe and find a print that has the similar palette like that, or it could be vice versa, you choose the print first, then see what color(s) are there in your printed wardrobe and choose a top/bottom that have those color(s)! For this printed skirt as mine, white & mint will also works good, but as I want to create it more fun, I pick yellow. I also choose a printed flare skirt as it shows my signature style which is a girly looking one.

 Can you see that my sunnies and bag matches as well? I pick my favourite love-shaped bag to add some fun elements on this look, and paired it with this sunnies with mint & pink floral deco which matches with my skirt & bag!
I got this sunnies from Hello Smithies 
What I Wear:
Top: Cloth Inc (upcoming Summer collection)
Bottom: Cloth Inc
Shoes: F21
Bag: Bangkok
Sunnies: Hello Smithies
