Pseudo ballerina

Standard

this is my interpretation of ballerina outfit. The skirt ist not really a tutu, but I think it works. A body or however you may call it also suits the purpose and the shoes are called after ballerinas so, we’re good.

 

Found this thang on sale on zalando. It is my now go to top for work. It is conservative, but with a certain flare – a bit of nakedness in the back, sailor collar in the front (sorry for the wrinkled shot – I do not have a stylist on the shoot), tight, but not too tight.

As per usual – goofy photos, because who wants to be serious.

some more mug shots:

and one more photos, because my new lens is that awesome:

Outfit details: Top/body – Ganni, skirt – United Colors of Benetton, shoes – Pretty Ballerinas, bag – cannot remember, something from yoox.

Cheers.

Variations of pink

Standard

I am a fan of pink. I really don’t get it, why pink ist considered lame and women who wear pink usually regarded as simple and what not. Pink is for baby girls…Also, everyone immediately starts talking about Barbie. I think pink is awesome. Such a vibrant and fun colour. And Barbie, she got style.

So let us start with the visuals of the pink shoes. These are not exactly Barbie pink, but they are in-yo-face enough. I love the retro feel from a clunky heel and round toe. And they are comfortable. Even if I have an appointment on the other side of the factory, I can wear these on that day, without having to worry about how I am going to walk there.

And here is the rest of the outfit. I actually wore this to work last week. Pink and green is the color combination, which brings that feeling of almost summer.

And some more clothes from the family of pink-purplish-redish whatever – a skirt and a bag.

Some more retro with the grandma jacket and huge buttons. And it turns out to be a pretty decent outfit.

And to conclude the story, some awkward shots. Because that’s what happens when you take pictures. Keepin’ it real.

I am not so much with the words today, but I really really wanted to post these pictures.

Outfit: jacket – Monton, button down – I think from Pull and Bear, skirt – Sisley, bag – don’t remember anymore, from Yoox.com, shoes – Zign.

90s

Standard

And here is the lazies outfit I wore in a while. I usually wear just work clothes every day and something like this happens only on the weekends. Wore this to grab a burger at our favorite diner.

Outfit: T-shirt – Diesel (c/o the husband), Pants – H&M, Sneakers – Converse, Bag – Kelly Moore

I am loving the 90s feel all over the virtual fashion world. Platform shoes, t shirts, distressed denim…My t-shirts are usually fitted to a degree…you know – women’s t-shirts. I decided to step a bit out of my comfort zone and embrace the 90s – as in big t-shirts. I used to wear such shirts with leggings back in the day.

Let us talk pants here as well. I saw theses weird thangs on H&M sale last year and since then they’ve been my favorite summer pants. They are part chinos part cargo pants part I have no idea what. The only mildly irritating thing is – they stretch too much and turn baggy. But oh well – comfort is the bestest.

And one more nod to the 90s – high tops. I’ve had a thing for high tops for a couple of years now and was looking for those perfect ones. These awesome converse are from Marimekko collection. Found them for a great price on asos back in February. Here is a little behind the scenes story about the collaboration.

A few more details of the outfit – the awesomeness that is this indigo bag (it is insanely comfortable to carry) and some more weirdness of my pants – zippers!

…some more of the t-shirt..

and the bag again…

Cheers.

My Kelly Moore bag arrived!

Standard

 

I wrote about camera bags already ages ago. A couple of years ago the market was quite poor, most of the bags were just of that extremely sporty type, all velcro and what not. And when I discovered Kelly Moore bags, I immediately put them on my wish list. But since the bags were shipped from the USA, I was not sure if I should order – too much fuss with customs, returns etc. Plus they are not exactly budget bags. So I waited. A couple of weeks ago, when I got a new lens and additional motivational kick to take pictures and continue with this littlo blog,  I decided to google the camera bags again. And what do you know, I found an online shop that stocks proper camera bags. They have a really nice selection of bags. I would not say awesome, because to be frank, such camera bags have still a way to go. Especially when it comes decorative details. But I am glad that there are many more options now available. Plus, the service is really amazeballs.

So. Without further ado – my new 2 Sues bag!

I had my choice narrowed down to two bags – 2Sues and Songbird. While Songbirds was of such a vibrant blue colour, which I love, and in general looked very cool, I found it to be a tad uncomfortable. I do not like carrying my handbags messenger style and it was too bulky under my arm. So the choice was obvious – 2Sues it was. I like that it is slouchy and has so many bells an whistles (but if you visit Kelly Moore website and watch videos about the bags, you will see that all the bags are equipped with pockets for all purposes imaginable. I do not want to go into too much detail, because the videos do speak for themselves. You can take a tour around the 2Sues bag either on the official website or on the photoqueen online shop.

Outfit post to come.

Off duty

Standard

I continue to freak out my colleagues and people around me in general, or at least make them lift their eye brows. Because why would someone wear weird ass white shoes and why do you need to wear ripped pants? 80s much? Yeah, bitches – 80s, FTW!

So I put on my moon boots (I have no idea why I call them that, they just remind me of astronaut boots for some reason) and go about my business earning looks. Which, I must say I am slowly learning to ignore. If I do notice them, then they just make me smile.

Outfit: jeans -H&M, top – asos, jacket – retro jeans, sneakers – MMM for H&M, bag – Sisley

I wanted high tops for quite a while now and when MMM for H&M were available for purchase, I did not think much about it.

I mean com’on! It is the re-edition of actual Margiela shoe!

They are pretty amazeballs fashionwise, but I do need to figure out how to wear them, since they are not that comfy. Not something you would expect from sneakers…Need to loosen them laces in the front a bit, so my wide feed would feel more welcome. The leather is pretty stiff, so I cannot lace them up all the way to the top, because then they press on the back of my legs :/ But with some compromise they are quite wearable, so I do not regret this purchase. Anyway, Marty McFly would approve, don’t you think?

Bee-tee-double-u, notice the difference in the photos? I finally got a proper lense! Hence, the outfit post and even some more to come.

cheers
