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.

Outfit post (Shoe challenge #2)

Standard

The sun is finally coming out and Spring seems to have finally arrived. As a consequence I am not feeling so sleepy all the time. That’s why I give you!..the result of a Sunday walk.

Outfit: jeans and tank top – Esprit, hoodie – Vertus (some Polish knock off brand I think), jacket – Tiks, belt – Fat Face,  Shoes – Converse, sunnies – Polaroid.

This week we discovered that it is now allowed to go behind the nearby forest into some former mining area (pictures to come). We had quite a stroll and took some nice pictures. It was quite a perfect time to practice my posing – not many people around. But now I think that it is not worth it – it is much more fun to have strange photos that reflect my personality. For example on the picture on the left I am about to sneeze.

Anyway, no fancy shoes to show off, I do not tend to wear heels in the fields or forest. Hence, the reasonable choice – Converse. I acquired them in London a couple of years ago. I bought the jeans in London as well, got quite a good bargain if I remember correctly.

Since I needed some comfortable outfit for a long walk, I just added some colour with the weird belt and a tank top, not to be totally gloomy. I think it still looks better than the standard German outfit for such a thing – couples usually look totally alike – wearing jack wolfskin windbreakers (or of some similar company), jeans and trekking shoes and usually accessorize  with those sticks for walking (you know, the ones that look like skiing sticks) and a big dog.

People often assume I am an angry person, but it is just my facial expression 😀 It indicates how well I’ve slept the night before. Not very well, judging from the above pictures. And since I do not hide behind the ton of make up, this is what you see in the pictures – angry me! Deal with it.

Enough of none essential BS, here are the details of my outfit. My belt, which I bought while being stranded at Heathrow airport – my flight was insanely delayed and I, of course, searched for comfort in retail therapy. (Btw,  it turns out I wore the belt upside down…my typical scatter brainness.)

There is a silhouette of a horsie on my hoodie, even has mane and stuffs. You like?

Cheers.

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? 🙂 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.

Outfit post. Grey on Grey and Jeans.

Standard

It was a totally lazy Sunday. On Saturday we did quite a lot of cleaning in the house (including getting rid of expired food and defrosting the fridge…ick…), so on Sunday we just watched Battlestar Galactica and were lazy for the most part of the day).

Outfit corresponds to my mood, which is – “I just couldn’t be bothered…”

I put on my current favourite grey jersey top over my husband’s t-shirt, put on jeans, converse and a snugly long cardigan instead of a jacket.

Oufit: top – ASOS, t-shirt – fruit of the loom, jeans – Esprit, shoes – Converse, cardigan – Only, earrings – from the fair in Vilnius.

Pimpin’.

Closer look at earrings. They are supposedly made of Venecian glass…

Signature “bye bye feet” shot. And evidence of Autumn.

Confused plant.

Outfit post. New camera try outs.

Standard

Some days simply disappeared. Su much has happened in the last week, that after a calm day passes, you forget it ever existed. So, now that it happened, that we have a new camera (Nikon d3000), we needed to mark the occassion by taking it outside. Plus the weather was finally nice.

First the outfit, more try out results in the next post.

Jersey top – asos, jacket – Retro jeans, jeans – FLG jeans , belt and scarf – esprit, shoes – Converse(got last year in London), bag – Lacoste(from Ebay), earrings – gift from my cousin, vintage camera – Zorki 4K family heirloom.

A portrait picture, to check what our camera can do. I always liked the manual focus possibility, which I could not achieve with my point and shoot Lumix TZ3.

The whole outfit gives me a bit of 70s or early 80s feeling. I like. The top combination was already seen here. I wrote before, that I sort of repeat the same clothes, but now that I think about it, I do not want to show ALL NEW stuff on my blog. It is actually fun to wear same clothes differently. I like that the top combination goes well with a skirt as well as with jeans. So I think that I will continue on similar path. Because well, not everyone (including yours truly) can afford to have a vast wardrobe and show new clothes in every post (unless they do their posts rather rarely :)). So there, philosophy of my blog is starting to shape up.

I asked my dad to bring me his old camera. As a kid I always fiddled around with it and now I finally get to try it too 🙂 We bought 4 films and they are all 36 frames, which is kind of annoying – it will take some time to use up the film and see if anything good came out.

And here is mah man (mah husband! I should say). We both need time to adjust to the camera, it has so much functions, that we learn via trials and mistakes. This picture turned out a bit to bright, but I am  not one of those people who will NOT put crappy (depending on the point of view) pictures in public 😀 The important thing here is, that the oufit is visible, right?

Oufit: cap – Starter, pullover and cargo pants – H&M, shoes – converse, backpack – Campus.

And here is some more fiddling around. I kind of like this overexposure. Looks like a vintage photo. So there you go. Have a nice day.

Cheers.

Outfit post. Wedding.

Standard

So, we were not too lucky with the weather, but for picture time at least it stopped raining 🙂 We went to the castle of Paffendorf for some nice surroundings. (I put the breakdown of the outfit at the end of the post.)

Here we are sitting in front of the castle. Behind us is a very nice park.

I kept changing the shoes, because the ones that I got for the ceremony were so uncomfortable to walk in. It is very weird, because otherwise they are very comfy and do not hurt. But the process of actual walking is very inconvenient, despite the practice at home. So I guess these shoes will wait for a sitting down occasion to be taken out.

Since I am not a white dress type of bride and just wanted something unconvetional, that goes with my shoes that I had already ordered, I spent quite a lot of time on the internets looking for a dress. I had a lot of choices, mostly a one coloured dress or a shirt and skirt combination. You know, make the shoes stick out. Unfortunatelly everything seemed too simple for my taste. Once I saw this Eucalyptus dress, I decided that this is the one. Unfortunately it was a similar odissey as with my shoes. Asos did not have my size or colour. So I was googling all over to find it. Eventually I found it on Ebay in my size and the location of the dress was around 30 km from where I live 🙂 It was definitely a sign. It cost me around 29Euros inculding shipping!

I love that the dress is a bit puffed up, so I did not need to buy a petticoat and I can wear it as a regular dress, not just hang it in the closet for eternity to remember that one day that I wore it. The dress has six buttons in front so it is easy to put on. I think on some fancy occassion I could wear it as an overcoat or smth. 🙂

Aprons were a gift from my sister-in-law. They are quite awesome, everyone loved them 😀

My witness, who was also a photographer, said that the rubber boots are the best part of the outfit 😀

In the above picture – we wanted to have some serious schoolchildren expressions, but we could not stop smirking 😀

And here are the outfits that we were wearing during the ceremony.

My outfit: dress – Eucalyptus, shoes – Irregular choice, earrings – gift from my cousin (around two years ago), parka – pac-a-parka from asos. I grabbed a parka for a short walk to the town hall (much too fancy of a word to describe the actual thing).

My husband’s (!) oufit: shirt and jacket – H&M, jeans – Mustang (inherited from deceased uncle), shoes – converse.

My mom loved my parka so much (you can pack it into the small pouch that is sown on the inside of the parka itself), that asked me to get her one too, unfortunatelly they are not available anymore…

We had few stressfull days (especially after the wedding, because our dear pet ferret died the next day – rest in peace our good bear), so I am sad, tired and do lack inspiration to post. I hope my imaginary readers will forgive me.

Cheers.

Outfit post (what I wore this Summer)

Standard

So, time for some restrospective outfit post and since there are no plans for leaving the appartment today and I wanted to post some pictures, I put something together from previous days. A bit hippy and I love it. Plus I had a chance to try out my tripod 🙂 seems to be quite ok, just takes time to adjust (you know, oops, I cut the shoes out of the frame etc.).


Top and jeans – Esprit, shoes – Converse, bangles – from Russia and Lithiania, bag – from grandma.


I got the jeans and the top last year in London when I was visiting a friend and the zipper of my last pair of jeans gave up on me a weekend before. So this was a necessity. And as usual, jeans are too long, but oh well. Until I walk on them and make holes I can console myself that I can wear them with heels too 😀 I think they still look good rolled up a bit. The top has such great green colour, love it. Sneakers I got in Budapest about two years ago on sale. They are rather cool, because they are not of simple one colour, but have flowers on them.
Anyway, back to clothes. I just love jeans from Esprit. Almost all of them are with stretch, which helps jeans look perfect and you do not feel like you are trapped in your pants, but also they do not stretch too much, so you do not look like wearing jeans that are too big. Jeans are always the one thing I put more money in, because they are my go to piece of clothing, when I have no idea what to wear.
I wore this outfit while grocery shopping few months back.

Mah man said, that I have an unfriendly expression in the pictures, so sorry for that. Will try to smile more next time.

Cheers.

Standard

So, I’ve gone to Berlin this weekend for my friend’s surprise birthday party. Just some pictures for now, stories – a bit later. All I can tell  that we walked A LOT. Since mah man and some other people were in Berlin for the first time, naturally all touristy sightseeing was a must 🙂

I am wearing t-shirt – Aboriginal, jeans and belt – Esprit, bag – vintage, shoes – blowfish, bangles – from India and Lithuania, earrings – from India.

And here in the Tacheles squat (more on that in another post) all tired. Top – Mango, shorts – Broadway, belt – from a dress by H&M, sandals – Oasis, bag – vintage, earrings (you cannot see here) – gift from my grandma. Mah man – t- shirt and shorts from Esprit, shoes –  Converse, sunnies – Polaroid.

More photos of our trip to come.

Cheers.

P.S. while we were in Berlin my tripod had arrived – YAY! Now I can make proper photos on my own 😀

Levitation and Owls

Standard

As I wrote on Sunday, I will share some info about my husband-to-be’s outfits too 🙂 The photos are from the same day, when we went to take pictures to Paffendorf.

Levitashun – you’re doin’ it rite. I took of my wedge sandals and changed into espadrilles for comfy jumpin’.

T-shirt, shorts and belt – Esprit, shoes – Converse, bracelet – Fossil, necklace – from a vendor in Palanga (a littlo town by the Baltic sea).

Mah man – Taz mode (remember the cute tasmanian devil from Looney toons? :)).  Sneakers’ laces look like cute wings 😀 Gives the impression of Hermes’ shoes or smth.

Making faces.

T-shirt in detail. We call it the Monday t-shirt, because of owls’ eyes.

And here was supposed to be a heart, but after I looked at the picture on my computer I now see that it looks like something else…looks like the tree is mooning us 😀

Cheers.
