Katy Perry Looks Holiday-Chic In H&M’s New Campaign


Are you ready for the holiday season? Well, if there’s someone who’s definitely ready, that’s Katy Perry. The 31-year-old singer has teamed up with the world famous Swedish fashion retailer getting all holiday-chic in H&M’s newest campaign. Already can’t wait to get your hands on those lovely holiday pieces? Check out H&M’s website and shop your favorites!

Katy Perry for H&M Holiday 2015 Campaign

Wearing H&M’s Christmas offerings, which include some cute flared skirts andChristmas sweaters (just wait and see the ‘Elfie Selfie’ one, it’s insanely lovely) in the perfect Perry style we all know, the renowned singer is photographed by Jonas Åkerlund cuddling up to candy canes and life-sized gingerbread men and nutcrackers soldiers. H&M’s holiday 2015 campaign also features some tuxedo jackets and fringed skirts, which means that we are about to see a well-balanced mixture of tailored and casual pieces, perfect both for our upcoming formal and casual events.

Perry, who has always been a fan of H&M, recently shared her excitement about the collaboration stating: ” I had such a festive time shooting this larger-than-life holiday commercial with Jonas Åkerlund, and all of the fun clothes, especially my favorite, the Elfie Selfie sweater. H&M was one of the places where I first began cultivating my personal style. I have continued to love integrating H&M pieces into my wardrobe throughout the years. One of the reasons I love the holidays is being able to dress cozy and cute, which H&M executes so well for every budget. I can’t wait for you to see the world we created with Jonas Åkerlund and Dan Jackson.”

H&M’s headquarters are also enthusiastic about this collaboration, which also must have meant a lot of work, given the fact that the campaign was revealed only a few days later from the Balmain x H&M latest partnership. Thanks to Perry’s popularity, however, the fashion house could just have had its ultimate collaboration (the American singer, besides being highly popular on the main social media, is also the highest paid woman in the music industry according to Forbes).

“We are so thrilled that Katy Perry will star in our campaign this holiday season. We love everything about Katy, from her incredible talent and energy to her playful sense of personal style.” says Pernilla Wohlfarht, H&M’s head of design.

However, the Katy Perry x H&M collaboration is not down yet with the surprises. The collection, which is going to be available in stores worldwide from about mid-November, features Katy Perry’s first Christmas song ever, which is going to debut on Monday, November 23. Although it might seem to be ‘just’ a television advert song, it is a real life opportunity for Perry, whose song will thus officially enter the imperishable world of Christmas melodies.

“It’s every artists dream to have their own Christmas song, and starring in the H&M campaign gave me the perfect opportunity. Every Day Is A Holiday is big, bold, epic and unashamedly fun, just like Christmas should be.”

Last but not least, H&M’s holiday 2015 season will include some philanthropic work too. Selling any designed gift card, the H&M Conscious Foundation will donate 5% of the proceeds to UNICEF, which consequently will help children in need in Myanmar to get a better education.

PurseForum Roundup – November 13

Other Brands


Happy Friday, Roundup readers. Friday the 13th is never unlucky when there are purses and shoes to enjoy over at the PurseForum, right? And indeed, you are in luck, because this week, Mulberry, Dior and the Jewelry Box topped our list of stops. Of course, there is always more, so get comfortable!


We stopped off in Mulberry this week after a long absence and found this pretty Bayswater had arrived just in time to cheer up an under-the-weather Izzy48. Jackiepoon is considering a Bayswater purchase this month, and the Should I Buy a Bayswater thread is a pretty good primer if you are considering a purchase, too. Our members are always ready to lend a hand when it comes to a bag purchase, and we love them for it.


Also in Mulberry, Loulibelle had a little something different to share from the brand, and while it is not a purse, it still put a smile on our faces. Cute shirt!


In the Jewelry Box, a thread with the title “Sharing my Excitement” is bound to be wonderful, and CrystalDreamer’s new Ceylon sapphire certainly is that. This unique ring has a special quality you will not want to miss, so do drop in the Jewelry box to see this and heaps more brilliant bling. Heaps!


We have noticed that on the PurseForum, the question “which one should I keep?” usually is answered, “Keep both.” If you want to see what we mean, check into 99daffodils’ thread in the Jewelry Box. We stand in solidarity with our PurseForum family and agree–keep both!

Our Jewelry subforums are world-class showcases of the most incredible jewelry, and they’re definitely worth a peek.


Over in Arts and Crafts, we paid a visit to our thread dedicated to the phenomenally popular (and extremely soothing) adult coloring book movement. We loved this mandala fish mashup from Sugarstained, who chose colored pencils as her medium. If you haven’t tried this relaxing way to while away the time, drop into this thread to get up to speed on the best books and mediums to get you started.


We couldn’t resist sharing this find with you, too. Last week we had a look a the ValentinoGlam Lock, and this week, while enjoying some time with the gang in Mulberry, we stumbled across this bi-color Glam Lock in the Non-Mulberry purchases thread. We know you love the “cheating on your favorite brand” threads as much as we do, and we thought this was a must-see for all you Valentino fans. Thanks for sharing, LoveHeart!


And speaking of color, look what we found in the New Miss Dior Promenade thread this week: Leooh chose this terrific teal for the pouch, and we love it. This nice shade will be a handy pop of color in any season, and it’s just the first of several member reveals in this informative thread. Rowy65 was not far behind with her pretty, peachy-pink selection, and the reveals just keep coming in this fast-moving thread.


The “your bag in action” genre of PurseForum conversations is one of our favorites because seeing our members styling their bags really speaks to the heart of what PurseForum is all about–expressing our style. The Diors in Action thread always has lovely action shots, andthis one from diana27arvi really struck a chord with us. The Lady Dior is often thought of as such a structured, iconically formal bag, but this fun ensemble and playful pose really rings our bell: a true expression of individual style, indeed!


Ahhh, the SLG! Small Leather Goods are the points of entry for shoppers at so many brands–the little jewels that steal our hearts and bring us back in for the bags later on. This sweet cardcase from Goyard is brought to us by ems1198, and we agree that this tiny ambassador of the brand is a great way to start! SunkistCaliKid also shared a nice reveal in Goyard this week; highlights include a sharp Senat MM that is a perfect way to tote documents in high style.


We were happy to spot an Anjou Reversable Tote this week; our members have been eyeing this line for some time, and this week we noticed Winwin123’s reveal from earlier in October.This really is a sharp idea, and we love the convenience of two totes in one.

That’s it for this week. These weekly roundups hit some highlights but barely scratch the surface of what goes on at the PurseForum. Our little home-away-from-home is, as our members well know, about so much more than fashion. Our members gather to discuss celebrities, work and career, health and fitness, relationships and everything else under the sun. We hope to see you there!

Here at BragMyBag, we know how important it is to put your best foot forward and strengthen your designer bag game with some tips and tricks. At times, it’s not enough to sport a pricey piece and let it garner attention on its own (especially if most of the bags in your collection are subdued, when you’re a so-called “Basic B”) – but not to worry, there are ways to spruce up a boring bag. Adding a few charms could help – and today, we’re going to talk about the Fendi Furry Alphabet Charms. These cute baubles are a steal!

The bag charms come in luxe fox fur, which bear the letter of your choice (there are, in fact, twenty-six of ‘em, so you’re never gonna run out). It is fastened to a palladium spring clip with a Fendi logo tag, and is perfect as a keyring or bag charm. Imagine all the possibilities you can come up with your furry friend! You can even go all-out and have more than one charm hanging – try to be outrageous and creative and spell out a word with these balls of fluff.

All of the charms in the collection are priced at $600 USD or €470 EUR. Catch all twenty-six via Fendi e-store now!

Best Bet: Elizabeth and James Cynnie Nano Bag

Other Brands

Elizabeth and James Cynnie Nano Shearling Bag

We feature bag deals every Friday finding the best bags marked down on the web. But there are many bags that aren’t on sale, they are just well-priced and designed nicely so we call these a best bet. Today I stumbled upon the Elizabeth and James Cynnie Nano Bagwhen scrolling through new arrivals on Net-A-Porter and the bag stopped me mid-scroll.

I would’t say I always think of Elizabeth and James when it comes to bags, but this bag is lovely and I found myself entirely intrigued by it from first sight. The compact size, white color, material combination, and price tag of only $235 makes this bag a best bet and then some.

The white textured leather is paired with ivory shearling and while that combo seems like it could be harsh, it is anything but. The overall dimensions aren’t big and the interior will fit just the essentials – think cell phone, keys and cards. There is a long shoulder strap that allows for crossbody wear and with fall upon us, this little bag will stand out against your autumnal hues. I not only love the style but I love the price!

Victoria Beckham Wears Two Slightly Different Casadei Pumps in NYC

Designer Shoes


Here’s Victoria Beckham, entering and then leaving an appearance on Good Morning Americawearing a high-backed variation of the Casadei Blade Pumps and a dress from her own Resort 2016 collection. If you look closely, you’ll notice one pump’s heel is black and the other is silver. These are actually two different versions of the same style. (They aren’t sold as a mismatched pair, as far as we can tell.) You can find the all-black suede version for $704.

As Victoria Beckham fans and regular readers probably know, Victoria is basically married to two different styles of stilettos, and she owns both in quantity. The first is the Manolo BlahnikBB Pump, and the second is, of course, the higher-heeled Casadei Blade Pump. You can see her many, many Manolos in the aptly named The Many Manolos of Victoria Beckham.

How to Wear Metallic Eye Makeup This Fall: Tutorial


The flaming sun is day by day becoming miserly, skimping its warm rays and holding them inside, while the trees on the contrary are in no way greedy in providing us with the most vibrant and zesty colors ever. Iridescent fall is on, which means that it is high time for the Mother Nature to show off the whole beauty of buttery yellow, burgundy red and amber orange foliage in the background of metallic blue sky morphing into grayish at times with expressive pieces of clouds floating so serenely across the sky. However, you can do more than just admire the miracles worked by our Mother Nature. Dare to become just another vibrant color of chameleon or rainbow by following our step-by-step metallic eye makeup tutorial with a hint of blue that will not only add fresh new shades in the nature but will also provide it with shimmering metallic light.

Metallic Eye Makeup Ideas for Fall

The earthy shades mixed with dodger blue look really stunning and autumn-worthy but the addition of dark mauve shade may double the sultry look and create an amalgam never to be sponged of the memory. Here is what beauty products you should have at your disposal and what steps you should take to become one of the shades of the autumnal chameleon:

• Makeup primer, foundation
• Blush
• Eyebrow kit
• Eye primer (We recommend Too Faced Shadow Insurance)
• Gel eyeliner in brown and blue
• Eyeshadows in black, neutral brown, light caramel brown, dark brown, light gold, metallic rose champagne
• Black mascara
• False eyelashes
• Nude dark mauve lipstick
• Makeup brushes

Step 1: Fall is when your skin needs a particular care and a slightly lighter foundation to cover your face camouflaging any skin flaws. Apply it over your favorite makeup primer and add a golden glow to your cheeks using a lovely blush color.

Step 2: Bold, bushy eyebrows are all the rage now. Cara Delevingne and Lilly Collins are a case in point and the spring 2016 RTW runway shows came to once more prove us that bold eyebrows may become one of your powerful weapons for a gorgeous look. So keep pace with the time and contour your eyebrows using brown pomade (ABH Dipbrow Pomade in Ebony), thickening them naturally and making them softly polished. Then apply an eye primer on your lids to make them super-smooth for your further perfect metallic eye makeup.

Step 3: Now that you have created an ideal basis, continue the process by applying brown gel eyeliner (Atelier Paris Eyeliner in Brown) as close to your lash line as you can, creating a tiny faded wing. To make it more eloquent apply a black eyeshadow (Noir from ABH) on top of the gel liner and blend it with a neutral brown (Fawn from ABH).

Step 4: Start bringing a real flirting game of brown shades on your eyelid. In the high crease apply a light caramel brown eyeshadow (Salted Caramel from Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette), and then complement it with a darker brown shade (Semi Sweet from the same palette) applied a little bit lower in the crease. To add some glow to your naturally brown eyelid apply a light gold eyeshadow (Surface of the Sun from ABH) to the inner corner of your eye and right under the brow.

Metallic Eye Makeup Tutorial for Fall

Step 5: The time for metallic eyes has finally approached to give your whole look some electrified strokes. Pass to your mobile eyelid coating it with metallic rose champagne eyeshadow (Pink Champagne from ABH) applying with a wet brush for extra shine. Keep on showing off your artistic skills by creating a wing on your upper lash line with blue eyeliner (Ocean Waterproof Cream Colour from ABH) gently uniting it with the faded wing of the lower lash line. The effect is just scene-stealing – high-wattage electricity fiercely running across the lid.

Step 6: Apply black mascara for pushing up your lashes and magnifying your penetrating and cutting look, afterwards using false lashes (Red Cherry #43 lashes) for extra volume and density.

Step 7: Finally finish off your autumnal metallic makeup by coating your lips with a nude dark mauve lipstick (Veronica liquid lipstick from ABH) to make them full and fruity and hotfoot it out of your home to saunter among crunching multicolored leaves.
