Oufit post. Warm November.

Standard

So, on the weekend we were spoiled by some nice warm (for November) weather… So we sneaked out to take some pictures in between rain showers.

See, this is why one should write a personal style blog…so one could see the difference between what is in the mirror (aka imagination) and in reality. Apparently this outfit is not working, even though I was really feelin’ it, if ya know what I mean. I don’t know what it is…either the shoes are too bulky or maybe the pants should have been rolled up a tinsy bit higher…or I should lose a couple of kilos I gained recently so the pants would look nicer (totally not ma fault though – I just do not go out much due to rain and general moodiness of the weather(note to self: start a weather channel) and jumping around in the house by yourself is boring..).

Outfit: t – shirt – some old pajamas t shirt about referendum regarding EU, hoodie and pants – Esprit, shoes – ASOS, jacket – Tiks, scarf – soaked in luxury.

Anyway. Here are some more pictures of the outfit.

And of the details.

 

Cheers.

About Sea of Shoes fashion art contest.

Standard

Jane from Sea of Shoes recently held a fashion art contest. There is also a dedicated flickr gallery.
Wow, there are so many creative people… I wish I could at least draw…

Anyway, I picked some of the pictures that I for one or the other reason liked more, but in general – the whole gallery is pretty cool. (p.s. where it was not written on the picture, I indicated under, who’s design was being interpreted.)

Outfit post. Hippy vibes.

Standard

On Saturday we did some random running around the town, buying expensive food and stuff. Got some fancy oil with herbs, some Christmas liquors to try out (considering to make this year’s gifts edible/drinkable :)). No no, we’re not in Christmas shopping frenzy, but it never hurts to have ideas, right?

My wedge ankle boots are the bestest shoes I own and I wear them almost all the time. Since they have a littlo hippy vibe to them and 70 rock in general, I went for my flared jeans (not sure if this kind of cut is called flare, but it is wider than boot cut, so I think it should be flare :D) and hippy blouse from zara. I like the blue and yellow combination from earlier post, so thought – you can never go wrong with this 😀 Other stuff – my standard Autumn coat and also my standard Autumn/Winter bag from Sisley (during this time of year this combination is sort of inescapable…).

Outfit: jacket and jeans – Esprit, shirt – pull and bear, top – Zara, shoes – ASOS, bag – sisley, scarf – soaked in luxury.

So far I think the photos for this post turned out the best out of all my photo shoots (thanks to my photographer/husband, who was carrying the bags and was patient enought to take photos :)). I remembered to smile more or less while posing and didn’t forget to pose while smiling :D. Plus, didn’t forget to get some detail shots. Improvin’ – you’re doin’ it rite 🙂

p.s. one of these earrings broke..I have no idea how – I was just stading in the bathroom in front of the mirror and one of the stones just fell into the sink… Mah man needed to perform some plumbing exercises on the sink to get it out…

Cheers.

Stylin’ online. Quirky outfits

Standard

A couple of outfits I created. A bit of a play on animal print trend and jeans overalls.

Happy Decorator
Animal print trend

Dunno if I would wear the one with leopard pants. As I wrote some time before, I don’t think that I would be able to pull of pants like that…probably would end up lookin like I am sporting pajamas…But the one with jeans overalls…with melissa pink shoes…Would be purfect.

cheers.

Outfit post. Forest fun.

Standard

We visited our dear friends on Halloween. Before the dinner we went for a walk in the forest. I needed to change my shoes unfortunately, so the oufit is not exactly what I was wearing (originally it looked a bit 70s :)), but I could not risk wading throught the mud in good shoes. I have my rubber boots for exactly this purpose – crappy weather and/or walking conditions. I think I am still way too practical to be an actual fashion blogger…I worry if I will be comfortable, if I will not ruin my clothes or shoes, if the bag will not be in the way, the skirt will not be too short, so I don’t end up pulling it down all the time etc. So often I end up wearing not exactly what I had in mind. But believe me, in this case rubber boots were a must…

Outfit: top – Esprit, sweater – United Colors of Benetton, jeans and belt – Esprit, scarf – from the market in India, jacket – some (non existing any more?) Lithuanian brand Tiks, boots – The Only, from amazon.


Due to my lame posing (I am still polishing my technique…*cough*) I could use only this one picture of my outfit, so more stories under forest pictures.


I bought the sweater in India. It is made of awesome wool..you know, the one that bights the skin? I love it. The colour is so nicely in your face :). Perfect piece for the winter – both practical and cute.


The jacket was aquired years ago, and I mean years…Like 7 or so. I wear it every year, it has never stayed in my closet during this jacket appropriate weather. I bought it for my last money. A couple of my friends from university and me were wandering this outlet store (at that time it was not that popular yet) and I saw this jacket for 35 Litas I think (around 10 euros in today’s currency rates) and I scraped my last money (I think it was all coins :D) and bought it. What an investment. I really love it when this happens – manage to snag a thing of great quality for a steal 😀

cheers.
