Outfit post. Checked and Striped.

Standard

Finally got to taking some pictures of my outfit. Wore this when we went for videos earlier today (wore the same stuff during the day too, just with black top…was a bit too moody for me, so I changed later).

I finally found proper checked pants, I’ve been on a hunt for like a year. They are really cool ๐Ÿ˜€ Perfect stretch for tight pants (these are jeggings or treggings or whatever :D). Really comfortable and looks great.

Outfit break down: top, t shirt and pants – Esprit, jeans jacket – Sisley, shoes and brooch – Asos, wristlet – Desigual.

Ghotsly look – consequence of the abscence of mascara. I have non existent eye lashes which need to be painted..But I’m still experiencing some weird problems with my lids, maybe my skin does not like the make up remover, so I look like a ghost most of the time.

I love this pic. Looks like Alice in wonderland saying goodbye to her feet.

And here is the detail shot of the brooch.

Aquisition of the wristlet has a story of its own. My friend and I had an evening of shopping in London, after work. We were on aย hunt for shoes but also didn’t shy away from going into other shops for unplanned purchases, since it was sale season. Once we came into Desigual (which in my opinion is awesome but really overpriced) I fell in love with this thing. But my friend convinced me not to buy it…60 pounds you know… After we left the store, I wanted to go back, but once again, my friend told me to get over myself. I was obsessing about it for several days and was prepared to pay the price (instead of eating lunch for some time).

One evening a bunch of Lithuanians from the office London went out to celebrate my birthday…and guess what I found in an unexpected birthday present bag ๐Ÿ˜€ I did not expect gifts at all so this was twice as great.

I love when I have a story related to a piece of clothing ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers.

Outfit post. August 18th, 2010

Standard

OK, so from the below pictures you can tell – I do not like make up ๐Ÿ˜€ The only thing that I use on regular basis is mascara (but I have a bit of a problem with my left eye, so for now mascara is put aside), so I would not look too washed out. If there is some special occasion – I use brown and purple eye shadows and brown eye pencil, and sometimes lip gloss. But in general, I do not want my skin to suffer this whole chemistry until I actually DO NEED to cover it up..in like 10 or 15 years :). However, after taking pictures I do see that additional effort is needed.

Also, I would like to have some nicely styled hair too, but first of all – I do not have patience, seconf of all – I don’t know how. I usually opt for some easy-to-take-care-ofย  hair cuts and be done with it. Put on to do (to learn) list – learn to do my hair. I have a friend who’s a hairdresser, I hope she will teach me or at least contribute to my hair appearance ๐Ÿ˜€ She does make up too, so we’ll see.

Expression suitable for the gloomy rainy day -me, top, bangle and brooch – Asos, skirt and leggings – Esprit, jacket – Retro jeans, rain boots – Be only.

It’s a pitty that it is so dark all the time, many photos came out quite blurry. So I was left only with these lame pose ones. But I like that my blog is starting to get into some sort of shape, and I wanted to share at least something. Plus, I like the idea of looking at this as my visual diary and not just blah blah. I think it will be cool to look back after some time and see what happened when and how it looked like.

Suspicious teacher’s expression – check.

Gonna do some housework around here and then go play dress up ๐Ÿ˜€

Cheers.

p.s. who did a rain dance again?!

Flea Market Find

Standard

There was a flea market in our littlo town today. Not much was happening there (a lot of shops simply use this opportunity to sell their usual stuff on a shopping Sunday and not much of actual flea market is going on), and we were also quite late (of course only the weather to blame for our laziness :)), so not many sales people were still working.

Anyway, I was going to look for particular things – brooches. I’ve been obsessed with these things lately – looking up on ebay and drooling. Since currently I am not working, I cannot allow myself to spend too much. But I did find something in my budget – I came back with a cute thing for 2 Euros.

And here is one of the ways I am going to wear it:

Cheers.

p.s. the legs of the ballerina actually move ๐Ÿ™‚
