MFV Beauty: Ciaté Velvet Manicure

The British nail brand Ciaté came out with a new manicure this fall! The Ciaté Velvet Manicure, where they take inspiration of the crushed velvet trend seen on the McQueen, Balmain and Gucci A/W 2012 runways. 

This manicure will add a matt, textured feel to your nails and it look and feel velvet. I'm trying to grow my nails out for this wonderful new trend! Can't wait to get the manicure kit.

The Ciaté Velvet Manicure kit is available in three colors: Mink Cashmere, Berry Poncho and Blue Suede. Your kit will come with a paint pot, crushed velvet and dusting brush. You can get yours at SEPHORA.

MFV loves Loafers

My new recent obsession are loafers. As many of you I'm currently studying in university and I'm always looking out for comfortable clothing and something that puts me on the go rather than pair of heels. I put together a few of my favorite loafers online and some streetstyle pictures.

You can buy the shoes seen below on NET-A-PORTER

Personally I love the whole idea of quirky and colorful loafers like the Charlotte Olympia's or the McQueens you can see below, they add a sense of whimsical in your wardrobe but then I love the whole classic look of your neutral shades. I think one should own atleast one pair of each kind. 

Which ones do you love the most?

Yves Saint Laurent Charlotte glossed-leather and metal loafers 

Nicholas Kirkwood face print leather and velvet loafers

Video: Electric Holiday

Barneys New York and Walt Disney present to you "Electric Holiday" (a short film)

Video showcases Minnie embarking on a fantasy fashion adventure in Paris and walks down the runway in Lanvin and comes across many fashion icons such as Sarah Jessica Parker, ADR, Lady Gaga, BryanBoy, Linda Evangelista and many more. This has to be a perfect combination on fantasy and style. 

I love the whole interpretation with Minnie as she has always been my favorite Disney character as child and how she just gazes outside the Barney's window and goes off to her dreamworld which is me everyday as I stare in front of my computer looking through online stores.

MFV buys: Faux fur drawstring bag

I just bought this bag from Stradivarius and I'm in love with it. I actually thought it was a lot different from the usual bags I've been seeing around and by that I mean the Cambridge Satchel wannabes. And I just love this whole new faux fur trend!
