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.

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.

Outfit post. Shoe Challenge #3

Standard

I took advantage of the good weather to take some pictures for the shoe challenge (check the Shoeperwoman website for more detail). These shoes, though are my current favorite, are also quite difficult to incorporate into an outfit. They look good with rolled up jeans, but I just couldn’t be bothered shaving my legs just for few pictures, hence the black tights. So sue me.

Outfit: skirt and tank top – Esprit, top – H&M jacket – Tiks, shoes – Asos Totally Suede, scarf – Soaked in Luxury, earrings – from India.

There’s not much to report today, except that I cleaned the windows, so just enjoy the pictures 🙂

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.

Oufit post. Warm November.

Standard

So, on the weekend we were spoiled by some nice warm (for November) weather… So we sneaked out to take some pictures in between rain showers.

See, this is why one should write a personal style blog…so one could see the difference between what is in the mirror (aka imagination) and in reality. Apparently this outfit is not working, even though I was really feelin’ it, if ya know what I mean. I don’t know what it is…either the shoes are too bulky or maybe the pants should have been rolled up a tinsy bit higher…or I should lose a couple of kilos I gained recently so the pants would look nicer (totally not ma fault though – I just do not go out much due to rain and general moodiness of the weather(note to self: start a weather channel) and jumping around in the house by yourself is boring..).

Outfit: t – shirt – some old pajamas t shirt about referendum regarding EU, hoodie and pants – Esprit, shoes – ASOS, jacket – Tiks, scarf – soaked in luxury.

Anyway. Here are some more pictures of the outfit.

And of the details.

 

Cheers.

Outfit post. Forest fun.

Standard

We visited our dear friends on Halloween. Before the dinner we went for a walk in the forest. I needed to change my shoes unfortunately, so the oufit is not exactly what I was wearing (originally it looked a bit 70s :)), but I could not risk wading throught the mud in good shoes. I have my rubber boots for exactly this purpose – crappy weather and/or walking conditions. I think I am still way too practical to be an actual fashion blogger…I worry if I will be comfortable, if I will not ruin my clothes or shoes, if the bag will not be in the way, the skirt will not be too short, so I don’t end up pulling it down all the time etc. So often I end up wearing not exactly what I had in mind. But believe me, in this case rubber boots were a must…

Outfit: top – Esprit, sweater – United Colors of Benetton, jeans and belt – Esprit, scarf – from the market in India, jacket – some (non existing any more?) Lithuanian brand Tiks, boots – The Only, from amazon.


Due to my lame posing (I am still polishing my technique…*cough*) I could use only this one picture of my outfit, so more stories under forest pictures.


I bought the sweater in India. It is made of awesome wool..you know, the one that bights the skin? I love it. The colour is so nicely in your face :). Perfect piece for the winter – both practical and cute.


The jacket was aquired years ago, and I mean years…Like 7 or so. I wear it every year, it has never stayed in my closet during this jacket appropriate weather. I bought it for my last money. A couple of my friends from university and me were wandering this outlet store (at that time it was not that popular yet) and I saw this jacket for 35 Litas I think (around 10 euros in today’s currency rates) and I scraped my last money (I think it was all coins :D) and bought it. What an investment. I really love it when this happens – manage to snag a thing of great quality for a steal 😀

cheers.

Outfit post. August 18th, 2010

Standard

OK, so from the below pictures you can tell – I do not like make up 😀 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-of  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 😀 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 😀

Cheers.

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