Just a Salad for me with a Side of Superga…Yummy!
The FashionPop girls are big fans of Supergas and have been for years (yes, before they were cool) and we can’t wait to get our hands on Superga latest range. The announcement came last week when they informed their fans on their website that they are teaming up with the no.1 Italian fashion blogger, The Blonde Salad. The italian beauty has designed a range of uber cool, hipster and undoubtedly cute designs that are driving us crazy!
The latest edition of designed sneakers to hit the superga range of beauties comes from Chiara Ferragni and since she knows fashion, we just had to tell you all about her too.
Who is the Blonde Salad, AKA Chiara Ferragni?
She is a 20 something fashion blogger/Law student from Italy she started her fashion blog in 2009 and it skyrocketed from the get go. Her jump start into the fashion blogging world was an obvious effect due to her natural sense of style and isn’t afraid to show it. she gives her tips on what to wear, what not to wear and how to make due with what you’ve got. She loves her couture and her street brands too, especially Superga.
So lets delve deep into the designs that she has launched for the comfortable italian shoe brand.
There is the FashionPop Girls favourite and that’s the spotted (brown and black) design. This print comes close to wearing giraffe and animal print and that is back this autum/fall. It has a cute design and it can be worn with both dark and light colours. It is both eye catching and funky at the same time! Wait, did we mention we love giraffes and sneakers and now they’re combined!
The other funky style is the camouflage (green, brown and black) design. This cool and much needed print of the season following through to next summer is emblazoned on the supergas shoe. These can be worn with any style you like as long as you are not doubling up on prints.
If you are going to stick to a print across your outfit then try to only repeat it in a scarf in order to compliment the shoes! This touch of print on your shoes will instantly transform you into a fashionista without even trying too hard.
Both come in the cotton lining version and and their signature rubber sole.
If you want to combine trend and sophistication, then the third design is the one for you.
The idea, spawned by two Italian brands, brings a leather upper print of a crocodile skin effect, cotton lining, a 4cm platform and cured natural rubber sole. This is only available in black.

The Blonde Salad isn’t the only designer range from Superga. There is an especially popular range from The Man Repeller that was launched earlier this year.
We can’t wait to get your hands on these, and hope you get to buy them too!
Both models will be available as a limited edition from October 28th so make sure to order yours ASAP!
Power your Night Out…with this Purse Phone Charger!
No longer will you have to wait until you get home to post your night out pics on instagram, or facebook! Welcome a world where you don’t need to carry a spare charger pack with you or ask others to charge your phone at the club in order to keep your phone alive!
Introducing the Mighty Purse. No, it not a 90’s superhero targeted at girls, in fact it’s the new fashionable purse that has an inbuilt charger in it. Stop the press…I’m SOLD!
So far, all I can think is WOW and how does it work?! Now, a night out charged by fun and your iphone battery isn’t a problem anymore. What more could we want? Well fashion I guess! And it’s there too - the purse actually looks great as a clutch too.
The Mighty Purse is a leather clutch bag with a external battery charger built inside, so that you never run low on juice. The charger has the power to be able to charge your phone fully twice before you charge it again, so no matter how many selfies take, or how many post on instagram you upload, you are sure to be juiced up for the whole night out without a worry. Just don’t forget to charge the purse when you get home. The only thing you’re going to have to worry about the whole night is who’s going to fill your glass when it goes empty.

Now we’ve heard of portable phone chargers before, and infact the fashion pop girls never go without their external phone chargers at all times, but nothing has been as cool and attractive as this cute and lovely clutch purse with the charger in-built. The purse comes in many colours which include black, tan and metallic designs, all of which come in real leather.
Fear it won’t fit your other necessities Well, it’s also roomy enough to fit your keys and your money inside and it even has card slots. The only downside we can see is that it costs a whopping £84.99. It’s not the cheapest clutch on the market but it has a charger built in so we can’t really complain.
But it does works with all iPhone and micro USB phones as well as all other types of phones.
It certainly is a lot prettier and sexier than having to remember to pack a battery pack in your bag every time you go out. The space saved could be used for your new lipgloss!

This fusion of fashion and function brings technology to the fashion world, with great success! We love it so far and can’t wait for more stuff like this comes our way!
Why you Need a Blazer this Fall
If you are anything like the Fashion Pop girls, you have busy lives and sometimes need to jazz up your day outfit and convert it into a night outfit to save time! What better way than to throw on that perfect key blazer and continue on your night!
With our busy and professional lives, the perfect blazer is a must. Why? well it totally changes the way you look, and feel. The blazer can change the way people look at you as a so-called daytime fashionista as well as in the work place. Either way, it can help you reach higher places. effortlessly.
Now, we are not saying that you can only look good if you wear a blazer, but the effects of a key ingredient in your outfit can make all the difference.
Look at the gorgeous Jessica Alba. She has a fairly casual outfit on, and with the touch of a stylish and well fitted blazer, she looks professional, cool and sexy all in one. She looks like she means business and isn’t afraid to show it.
When it comes to choosing the prefect blazer, follow these rules and you will be hot and sexy:
It seems that its all about the tailored look. Here’s a cheat sheet to making yours fit like a second skin.
- It is vital that it be fitted across the shoulders, but not stretched taut.
- The hem of the blazer should skim your hipbone.
- The sleeves should hit mid-thumb when your arms are straight in front of you (and you can customise it as you feel by rolling the sleeves up a little).
- You should be able to button it without it pulling, but it should retain its silhouette when worn open. Don’t worry if it doesn’t close all the way because more than likely you wont be wearing it closed anyway.
A Navy blue blazer from Zara. Simple, elegant and long lasting fashion-wise.
Remember that you are the main attraction and not the blazer, so go for a style that has longevity and class and that you can wear for years to come. Don’t go for harsh colours, or crazy patterns if you can’t afford to buy a new one in the near future. I like the simple colours like black and navy blue or a chic white. Remember to keep it simple.
Zara’s Blazers are very well cut. Here is a chequered blazer in their line this fall.

Ok, so rumour has it we have to wait until 1st September to see the whole campaign live. Boo!

- THAT not-so-perfect-but-we-love-it-anyways nose - nobody’s perfect but his imperfections look delicious and fit him perfectly.
- This might mean that he’s never doing a teen vampire movie again! - never again please! We know he’s a great actor, and he has a lovely face; he doesn’t need those silly pale ‘people’ anymore.

Adorable Fashion: 5 Reasons Why you Need to Know Alonso Mateo
We love fashion, and we love pop culture and when those two come together, you get Fashion Pop!
The FashionPop team came across a little fellow who just loves fashion, and isn’t afraid to show it to the world. Infact, he has used our fave photo sharing platform to show us his swagger and style. Meet Alonso Mateo. This little fashion-icon posts daily trendy selfies of his personal style on his Instagram account. His adorable poses make it all that cuter and stylish. Perhaps a future fashion big shot?
In each gram pic, he strikes a confident pose, hand nearly always in pocket, looking off into the far distance. The pics could be right off the fashion pages of GQ but they’re not.
The quality is so good that these micro fashion shoots with uber cool location such as palm trees, swimming pool and of course some cute dogs, look like he is prince of fashion and is loving it too.
He certainly has created quite a buzz on social media platform instagram, and its ever growing.
With a fashion stylist mother, lets see how the tiny guy impresses us fashion lovers!

Everyone loves to wear shades, especially in the summer and when you look cool wearing them who can resist. Some can pull of some styles while others make the glasses look seriously uncool (you need to know what suits your face). Alonso, with his perfect swagger, can wear any pair of sunnies like they were made for him and still make you wish he was your baby brother. His particular favourite style are aviators but anything goes for this little guy.

2. He loves a good blazer
The boy likes to keep warm in style! What can we say? We love it! Maybe he will be the new royal baby’s style adviser for tot fashion? One of his favourite style trends is to colour coordinate his blazers. He wears them with jeans, a dress shirt, and he has even tried timeless smart blazers. Cute cute cute!

3. He dresses better than most guys we know
It’s every girls dream to have a son one day that we can dress to perfection but whats important is that, like many of the great leaders of the world, he has a wonderful woman behind him. Alonso’s mother is the woman behind the little man’s success, being a stylist herself, she goes shopping with the little man at every opportunity and helps him decide on all the cute outfits he wears. Together, the Mateos are real style icon we should be watching.
4. He follows the rules of fashion
He doesn’t mix colours that could clash, and he certainly doesn’t wear socks with sandals! Now that we think about it, he hasn’t been in a pair of sweatpants in any picture we have seen. Pure fashion all the way and its just a shared hobby for him and his mum (awww).
5. He is grounded, despite all the attention
He’s cool as a cucumber, and a good boy!

Conclusion? We love him and can’t wait to see him grow up into a man with followers who love and emulate his fab style!

The 5 Wimbledon Essentials you Can’t be Without
My all time favourite sporting event of all time is none other than Wimbledon! (Can you tell i’m a big fan? Ok, let me calm down for a minute…)
Anyway, back to the topic. Wimbledon will be rolling round to SW19 in the coming days and if you’re lucky enough to get time off work and visit this Great and historic sporting venue for one or more of the games set to play at the All England Lawn and Tennis Club then you better be ready for the fashion show ensue for the grounds.
Game, set and match: here’s some tips on what to wear to south-west London’s favourite summer sporting event, Wimbledon.
1. Bring your Umbrella!
If you coat dooens’t have a hood, then invest in a classic looking and strong umbrella. Just don’t pull it out when you’re watching a match, it might block someone’s view.
2. A sturdy yet light Rain Coat
Since its England, and summer doesn’t guarantee dry sunny days then be sure to wear your raincoat or trench for the day. Anything rainproof and with a hood (you know so that you don’t block people’s view with an umbrella - it is a polite affair after all…) will do but why not make it fashion worthy? Try a mid-length trench in beige, navy blue or black to look chic and perfected to the tee.
3. Sun shining or not, bring your trendiest shades
Even though you’ll be sitting around all day people watching, you still want to look trendy and theres no better way to make this happen then with a perfect pair of shades. It may not be sunny every minute but in that moment of shine, make sure you look the part. Tip: Don your specs even if its not sunny, its probably still bright enough to get away with it! Choose stand-out accessories to add flavour to a simple outfit.
4. The “I’m so prepared” Hat
As unpredictable the weather can be, it doesnt mean that it will always be cold and rainy. believe me, I have experienced some scorching moments as a spectator on the courts. The weather can change dramatically during the course of one 3-set match, so a sun hat will be a really useful item to bring with you to the event.
5. Whatever you wear, wear layers
A pair of nice trousers and tee, a lovely summer dress, or something more formal could be one of the many outfit combinations that you will choose to go with for the day.
But what if it suddenly becomes colder or warmer like i mentioned ^^ up there?
The answer to that is LAYERS! Bring a cardigan, blazer, or if you’re wearing something for the colder climate, make sure to wear something sleeveless underneath so that if it does get warm and balmy, taking off a layer can help your temperature levels cool down.
And don’t forget, your most important accessory will be a bottle of Water . A conveniently sized bottle of vitality will keep you hydrated during those tense match point and will make sure you are not left feeling tired and dehydrated.

The 4 Best Dressed at The Oscars 2013
This year’s Oscars ceremony brought in the classic, simple and elegant look from the ladies and men hitting the red carpet and attending the show. The colour that took the red carpet by storm? None other than the subtle and glorious Cream.
Here are our creme de la creme of the hottest and best dressed celebs at the Academy Awards 2013.
Jennifer Laurence in Dior Haute Couture!
The Best Actress award winner of the night, Jennifer, wore this voluptuous Dior Haute Couture dress. It was a bit much for her to carry off as she found it to trip her up as she went to collect her statue. She changed into something more comfortable for the famed Vanity Fair after-party.
Halle Berry in Versace
At this year’s Oscars, the 46-year-old wowed the audience in a plunging metallic Versace gown on the star-studded red carpet.
Naomi Watts in Armani Privé
This dress was definately one of the show stoppers of the night. The Best Actress nominee stole the show at the red carpet with this dress from Armani Privé; with silver sequins and cutouts, this made the perfect statement - sexy, eye-catching and sophisticated. Perfect!

Johannes Huebl Dresses like Every Man Should Dress!
Johannes Huebl is a German model who put his name on the map when he started dating socialite and star of The City, Olivia Palermo.
Johannes is not only hot and European but he dresses like EVERY MAN should dress and we really like what we see (in more ways than one!)
Here’s a little background on Johannes Huebl and what his style is all about!
Let me show you some examples of what I mean…
(btw my favourite look from the both of them)
Let’s not forget who is by his side in every one of these pictures, his long-time girlfriend, Olivia Palermo from MTV’s The City. She is also a style queen and model and sets the standards for simple and classic beauty. We should all take note here, ladies.
Let us conclude here and say, this man is hot, European, dresses well, has talent and has ambition! What more could we ask for in a man?!
Now, where can i get me one of these?
Kelly Osbourne wins Ultimate Style Icon at Cosmopolitan Women of The Year Awards!
First of all, Kelly, we love you and you go girl for your personal achievements!
Second of all, the transformation that Kelly has made over the years is just wonderfully inspiring.
Ambition is a key factor in my personal life and i commend Kelly for getting to the place she wanted to be.
Kelly is a fully-fledged fashionista to you and me but the 28-year-old star couldn’t hide her disbelief as she was the recipient of the Ultimate Style Award at Tuesday night’s Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women of The Year Awards 2012 with VO5.
Well done Kel!
Taking to the stage at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, she said: ‘I used to look like s**t. I never thought I’d get a style award. And Cosmo putting me on their cover a couple of years ago did wonders for my self-esteem.’
Showing off her trim figure in a form-fitting floral print silver and lilac silk dress, the Fashion Police host looked simply stunning.
While her dress accentuated her slim waist, her shoes added height to her frame with a pair of towering peep-toe stilettos, while she kept her lilac curls swept to one side.

Will this Chanel Bag make it to the streets?
The Runway can be one scary place for the average Fashionista! The pressure of finding the newest trend in time, being the first to spot it, trying to find the right way to take it from the runway to the the streets the right way!
The newest BIG trend/item du jour to hit the runway and (possibly) make it to the streets is the enormous and slightly ridiculous hula hoop shaped Chanel bag (intended for use as a beach bag), designed by Karl Lagerfeld for Paris Fashion Week’s Chanel Show.
The French design house delivered a triumphant collection at the luxurious setting of the Grand Palais hosting some stellar front row eye candy including the likes of Jennifer Lopez and her four-year-old daughter Emme - both clutching Chanel bags.
The question is, will this ‘Bag’ make it to the streets? We hope not…
