PRADA ELEKTRA BAG

Other Brands

Prada-Elektra-Bag

Box pochettediagramme quilting and now buckle-studded strap, it really never gets boring at Prada. And today, they have a wide variation of different handbag styles, more than we can collect. Still, we hope they will bring back the classic Saffiano Lux Tote one day, the bag that we love so dearly. But anyways, meet the new Prada Elektra Bag.

The Design

Prada-Elektra-Bag-5

Prada is challenging all fields of fashion, but aren’t they trying to do a bit too much? The pyramid studs on the Elektra Bag do remind me of the Valentino, especially the red colored handbag.

The Elektra Bag is made with a mix of calf and saffiano leather. Both leathers are durable, especially the saffiano, which is unbreakable. The studs have been embellished in different parts; first on the center buckle strap, but also on the handles. The front features a flap with push-lock clasp and you can sling it on the shoulder as it comes with a removable leather strap.

It’s a chic bag with tremendous space in the interior. And it can function as a great everyday bag, blending with casual clothing.

The Interior

Prada-Elektra-Bag-6

So how does the inside of this bag looks like? There are two compartments and one zipped pocket. Both are big enough to help you transport all your basic needs and there is even space for more.

The Prices And Sizes

Measuring 4.2’ x 7.2’ x 10.2’ (D x H x W) inches, priced at $2840 USD, €2200 EUR, £1990 GBP, ¥346680 JPY.

COULD WINNING THE LOTTERY MAKE YOU INTO THE NEXT BIG CELEB?

Obviously, disposable income makes it a little easier to follow your dreams but can winning the big bucks on the lotto help you live out your dreams of stardom? Here are some of the most famous and infamous lottery winners and some of the most decadent and interesting ways they used their wealth.

VIVIAN NICHOLSON

“Spend, Spend, Spend” – a lotto win made Vivian rich but it was this line that made her famous. Vivian Nicholson and her husband Keith won £152,300 back in 1962, which is around £3 million in today’s money. Vivian told reporters that she was planning to “spend, spend, spend” and she lived up to her promise with a number of lavish spending sprees on everything from fur coats to sports cars. However, this spending was Vivian’s downfall and she would be bankrupt by 1970. Vivian would spend the rest of her life trying to recoup her lost wealth – to no avail. While her money didn’t last, her memory would and Vivian’s place in culture is forever assured. Nicholson has been referenced by everyone from The Smiths to Morrissey, a musical based on Vivian’s life debuted on the West End in 1998 called – of course – Spend, Spend, Spend.

ROGER GRIFFITHS

When this 34-year-old dad won £1.8 million in the lottery, he decided to pursue some of his old dreams by getting the band back together – his old university band, in fact. To be fair, Roger’s band was slightly more impressive than your average university band, ‘FMB’ were the subject of a documentary called ‘The Next Big Thing’ on Channel 4. Griffiths got his band back together with £25,000 of his winnings. Unfortunately, it wasn’t enough to catch the public’s eye and FMB never did become the next big thing. In its article about ways to spend a jackpot on musical endeavours, gaming brand Lottoland indicates that Griffiths’ band only shifted 600 copies of their single “James”.


JANE PARK

Jane Park became the youngest Euromillions winner ever when she won £1 million at the age of 17. Making her win even more shocking was the fact that her winning ticket was the first one she had ever bought. Park has been in the headlines ever since, both for the amount she’s dropped on plastic surgery and for the celebs she has been linked to. Most recently, she’s dated singer and reality star Sam Callahan and Dundee player Jordan Piggot.

ADRIAN BAYFORD

In 2012, Adrian Bayford and his wife Gillian won a massive £148 million in the Lotto Jackpot. Adrian, a lifelong music fan, used some of his winnings to open a movie and music memorabilia shop. Adrian also used his wealth to gain a foothold in the music industry. He became an executive producer on an album by British rock band Last Great Dreamers and, when the Cambridge Rock Festival was in danger of being cancelled in 2017, Bayford allowed the festival to use his back garden as a location – putting his wealth to good work.

The most successful celebs on this list seem to have followed their dreams, not their money. So, that’s something to keep in mind if you ever win the jackpot.

BUILD YOUR STYLE BY STARTING A FASHION BLOG

Other Brands

Building your own personal fashion style can be a tough thing to do. It takes a lot of work to figure out what you like and make sure you are not just imitating the style of others. You also need to make sure that you are not just following what your friends are telling you they like. 


Developing your own style means you need to look and feel comfortable, but it can also give you a new confidence. One unique way to make sure you are truly building your own style is to start a fashion blog.

A fashion blog helps you draw on the expertise of others, and much like a fitness or diet blog can do much more than help you on your journey. It can inspire others that they can also find their own personal fashion style.

The first step you will need to take of course is to set up your website. This means you need to register your domain name, find a host, and design your site using a template of some sort. Once you have done those things, you are ready to get started.

SEEKING INSPIRATION

Truly the first thing you are looking for is inspiration. Do you like hipster chic, or are you more drawn to a clean and minimalist look?  Do you like more feminine styles with lace and floral patterns, or are you drawn to more solid colors and simple designs? 

You can look around and draw from the looks of others, but you can also blog about your journey to search for inspiration. You will probably combine more than one fashion style, and your readers can share with you their favorites and why they like certain styles.

Not only will your readers benefit from sharing with you what inspires them, but it might make them consider their own journey to find their personal fashion style.

GET HELP CLEANING OUT THAT CLOSET

You already have clothes hanging in your closet. Some of them will fit with the new inspiration you are after, some will not. The likelihood is that in the cleanup process, you will find some things you didn’t even remember that you had. You will see what you were once passionate about, and if it still fits with the look you are going for now.

Your blog allows you to turn to your audience for inspiration and help. Does this skirt belong? Should this blouse stay or go? Donate or burn to put it out of its misery? Your audience can help you with these decisions and more. 

ANALYZING YOUR LIFESTYLE AND GOALS

While there is always a certain amount of fun in fashion, there is also a practical side to it. What are your personal and professional goals? If you plan to work in an office as an administrative assistant, your wardrobe will have to be much different than if you are planning to work in a retail environment.

This does not mean that professional styles cannot be cute or have your own personal touches. It just means that these things need to be more subtle and fit in at least somewhat with the look you are expected to have.

Although many professions have eased up on dress code requirements, there will be some instances where your professional goals will take precedence over your personal desires.

You also need to consider your lifestyle. Are you active, and love to be outdoors all summer long, or do you prefer the nightlife over the rugged look? This will greatly influence the contents of your wardrobe and the things you continue to add to it.

Of course, you will need to have a variety of clothing anyway to accommodate for certain events, but the focus of your wardrobe should be centered around your lifestyle and your personal and professional goals.

BUILDING CONFIDENCE

While not all of the feedback you get from having your own fashion blog will be positive, most people will find a way to encourage you and help build your confidence in yourself and your decisions about fashion.

As your following grows, you will know that you are doing something right. People pay attention to things they like, and that should let you know you are on the right track.

At the same time, take negative comments and build on them. First, sometimes they will help you make better fashion decisions. Secondly, not everyone will like your style and what you are doing, and that’s okay. When you have detractors, it means that in some ways you stand out from the crowd.

ACCESSORIZING

One of the toughest things about fashion is building the right accessories. From jewelry to a variety of purses, scarves, hats, and even shoes every outfit seems to demand something new.

Having your own fashion blog helps you reach out to your audience for a couple of reasons that will help you accessorize:

● Bargains: Your audience will know where the best deals are and can share that information with you.

● Cross-accessorizing: Your audience can also share with you what accessories will work with several outfits and styles, saving you time, money, and closet space.

● Getting it Right: Even as you learn and grow into your fashion style, you will make mistakes, and you can rely on your blog audience to help you get it right.

A blog can help your fashion style develop in so many different ways, and accessorizing is just one of them.

BEING AUTHENTIC

It is easy to imitate. It is easy to follow the crowd. It is much tougher to step outside your comfort zone and truly embrace your own personal fashion style. However, it can be done, and starting your own fashion blog can help you embrace your authenticity.

Building your own fashion style does not have to be a journey you take alone. From inspiration to help cleaning up, a blog audience can be very helpful. Aligning with your goals, gaining confidence and authenticity will all be easier with a little help from friends along the way. Starting your own fashion blog helps you find those friends along the way.
