Cognac

Standard

I am missing dresses and skirts in my winter wardrobe, so here is a new addition – a full brown skirt (also a result of H&M sale abuse).
This is an outfit that I wore to work last week.

There is some more brown stuff going on in this picture apart from a skirt as you can see (a blogger who chooses her words carefully might say – earthy colors or cognac, hence the title of a post) – brown elbow patches (yay!) and stitches on the cardigan and brown boots. And some awkward posing to top it all off.

I am quite happy with the skirt, despite it being synthetic and being a total pain to iron. And here is a detailed shot. I changed the belt that came with the skirt with a belt, that I got from my mom.

And here are the awesome elbow patches:

Plus the boots:

Outfit details: skirt- H&M, button down – Etam, cardigan – Esprit, belt – vintage, tights – dunno, boots – Bronx.

So there you go. Cognac.

Shoe Challenge Excuses

Standard

Since I am rather preoccupied with the job hunt, I did not snap any pics of my outfits yet, just managed to wear some shoes. I just want to indicated that I have worn these shoes and will be sure to take photos eventually (after all the tension is gone).

Here are the shoes that I wore.

Converse sneakers (seen here)…what can be easier, right? πŸ™‚ Wore them to the shop.

Bronx brown knee boots (seen here). Wore them on Valentine’s day while visiting my in laws. How romantic…well to be frank, I do not give a crap about that pink/red/card/flower/candy/slutty underwear day. I had a couple of glasses of good wine and a relaxing evening in cozy environment.

Bronx ankle boots (seen here). Since I am mostly at home, my main exercise is grocery shopping. Wore these to get some stuff for dinner. They are so damn loud. In the town itself is no biggie – noise level cancels them out. But in our quiet street and on the way to the shop it is like there is nothing else left in the universe, but the noise these shoes make oO. I still love them, they’ve been with me for about 4 years now.

Asos Totally Suede ankle boots(seen here). My current favorites. My feet are rather wide, so the round toes are just a perfect fit (gives enough space to squeeze my relatively large feet in) and the laces allow perfect adjustment for my high arches. (I am just so special with my wide feet and high arches oO). Anyway, the shoes are damn comfortable. I had walked in them all day and was not tired at all. And the craziest is, I got them for a ridiculous discount :).

 

cheers.

Annoyance

Standard

I didn’t have proper conditions to take pictures of this outfit, when I was wearing it (what a surprise…). Just before New Year my husband and I went to see ‘Grease’ (the clothes were awesome πŸ˜€ performance…not so much). Light in the evening was, of course, crappy, so I thought to myself – next time…

Today while laying in bed I finally realized, that there actually IS a spot at home, that I could use for taking pictures, just need to move some stuff around, but… It is a plain white wall and my camera very stubbornly refused to focus automatically…my visions is worse thanΒ  my camera’s so my manual focus magic didn’t turn out too well either…There were more outfits from this infamous photo shoot, but everything is blurry, in other words – total embarrassment… Not that this isn’t, but I am just sick of not having posted any outfits in a while because of the quality of the pictures. So, the point is to document what I wear, evaluate and evolve, right? πŸ™‚ In other words – no matter how lame the pictures are, at least these have to reach the world out there.

Outfit is not exactly complete – no make up unfortunately, but I got so annoyed adjusting the camera, that I could not be bothered putting more effort into something that is usually not very important for me (or was…as of Christmas I expanded my make up kit and it is not limited anymore to just mascara). Also, I was wearing a black long sleeved top under the dress, so I would not get cold.

Outfit: dress – Promod, belt – vintage from my mom, boots – Bronx, tights – Asos, ring – something from Disney collection, cannot remember the brand, earrings – from India.

I just love this trend, that’s been around for quite a long while now – BELTING! FTW! I think it is a really nice way to add that something to the outfit. I am not very good at it…yet πŸ˜€ This is the only outfit so far that I can pull off (except for belts in jeans, which are more of a necessity rather than a fashion choice).

The ring was a birthday gift from my friends (from my wish list), it is from Alice in Wonderland collection or smth :). Follow the white rabbit (Matrix alert!…dear lord…my mind just cannot stick to one thing at a time, can it?). Continuing a short acquisition story – I bought the dress back in 2008, when I worked in Budapest. Quite nice to have things from all over the world in my closet πŸ™‚ It is not just about fashion or style, but also – about memories πŸ™‚ And this dress did enjoy Budapest πŸ˜€

Cheers.

 

p.s. note to self – get a remote control for the camera.

Outfit post. Blue scarf, long boots.

Standard

The name of the post sounds a bit like pirate names…I need an eye patch. The outfit itself is not at all piraty, but rather elegant.

Outfit: coat and jeggings – Esprit, scarf – from India, shoes – Bronx.

Camera accumulator died on us so there were only three pictures and only one showable. So there you go.

I can’t remember which top I wore…but oh well.

The shoes were aquired back in Lithuania like…3 years ago…I’m not sure. But they are really great. Thick heel makes them rather comfortable to walk, in, decorative belts or however those things are called add kind of a rock’n’roll touch and the colour adds a nice pop toΒ  dark outfit, which is almost always the case this time of year, since I own only this one coat for current temperatures. Sadly, this is also the only wool scarf I own, so for outfits I can only work with my bottom…(yes I do realize how it sounds :D), that is – legs, since the top is a constant. Ergo – funky footwear and/or tights (p.s. I love how jeggings are so easy to stuff into knee boots).

I am hoping to snap some outfit pictures this weekend if the weather allows, since we plan a lot of outdoor activities.

Cheers.

Outfit post. Posing in the garden.

Standard

We are trying to put our two remaining ferrets with a new company. Since we had a chance to go to the garden of the people who have our potential pets, I decided to try some posing where people cannot see me πŸ˜€ Turns out..I’m not that much of a poser… But I did manage to pick few photos out of the bunch of fail. Here goes.

Shirt – Zara, jeans – Esprit, belt – vintage, shoes – Bronx, earrings – gift from my cousin, bracelet – gift, watch – Casio.

Please nevermind the messy hair and focus on clothes πŸ™‚ I wanted a similar shirt for a while now, sort of a loos fit. I found it in Zara in Cologne last week. I love the role up sleeves and the dark blue colour. Will need to investigate how it looks with long sleeves though.

Jeans were aquired in Budapest. I was coming back to them until I found them on sale (and they were still too expensive, but I got them :D). I really love the cut of these jeans. Also the light denim and the percentage of elastane make them really perfect for summer. Definitely my favorite pair.

I got the belt from my moms closet. I’m glad she did not get rid of some oldies, because I found some real treasures when I was visiting back in May.

Shoes are quite old. I got them back in Lithuania around three years ago. A bit of a pain to look after them and after some time I see that I would prefer different heel instead of the wooden one. But they go really well with jeans (not so much with skirts) which cover the heel, so not a big deal then :).

Cheers.
