Orange hippos

Standard

Another polyvore set. Again some orange and blue, this time just as hints of color popping up from under jacket or pinned to the ear.

Orange hippos

I actually bought this bag (in another color – garnet) and pants and have similar shoes. I wanted to create an outfit that I could actually imagine wearing.

I was puzzled by the brand of the bag. It says D2, but no tags came with it so I have no idea what that is. I don’t think it has anything to do with Dsquared2, but who knows.

ACTA and….

Standard

Why the hell is the fashion blogger community not concerned with it?!

I found only a couple of blogs which expressed their concerns: geek goes chic and the fluffy blog. None of the major blogs, with the huge fan base made as much as a peep…

Well I am no better, because I am writing about it only now, but I do not really consider my blog to be of influence, so that’s all I can currently do – peep. Please watch theĀ  video on the fluffy blog, it reveals the what kind of ridiculousness all this acta sopa pippa crap brings.

Jean shorts

Standard

There was quite a huge trend last summer methinks, where almost all blogs and fashion mags where jumping on a cut offs’ wagon. I love jean shorts myself, but had to wait it out until the trend died down. When it is on a roll, the outfit will be lost in a see of the same stuff everyone wears. Dunno…would make it less special or would feel like mimicking.

So anyway. I finally got myself some awesome jean shorts on H&M sale. Don’t think they are summer appropriate though – the material is quite thick. So just after I got them in November or December, they turned into my Autumn uniform.

Wearing: sweater and shorts – H&M, button down – Etam, boots – Timberland.

Paired with opaque tights was very weather appropriate (and I do dress weather appropriate 99% of the time).

Let’s talk boots now. I did not have any flat shoes for the transitional (or however you want to call it) weather. When it is no longer warm enough to wear ballerinas, but not quite the time for the boots with fur.

I am really happy with this acquisition – I am wearing the boots all the time – they are and look awesome, so cost per wear is reducing as we speak. The 150Eur price tag is completely justified and approved. I had to go half a size up though, cause my usual size 38 (UK 5) was a bit narrow and I like to keep the option open to wear more than one pair of socks without compromising the blood flow to and from my feet.

I will leave all the responsible and green aspect of the boots aside. Cause even though there are partly recycled materials used in the production of the boots, yet those boots are not made locally blah blah blah and not sure if the recycling would compensate for the carbon footprint due to transportation and what not. I just think that these are good looking boots of great quality and I am sure I will be wearing them for years to come. Also not bad, that a couple of plastic bottles where turned into parts of the shoe, right? And I said I would leave this aside..whatevs.

Here is a detailed shot of a sweater. All of my sweaters are sortta shape revealing and lately I felt like I need to get some stuff, that is looser. The colour is something I’ve been drawn to for a while and I like the littlo pocket.
Not sure how long the sweater is going to last, since the quality ist not superb, but I think it already paid off, cause I wear it “ALL THE TIME” (HOW ANNOYING IS THIS PHRASE?!)

Cheers.
