Blue and green with plastic on top

Standard

And while I am on a roll, here is a little something from Polyvore. But don’t get me started on what they did to the system. It is not at all intuitive anymore. What’s with all the crappy templates?! They really made some changes for the worse.

ย I am exposed to too much fashion reads, pastels are everywhere right now. And I am really having a thing for this type of pastel green lately. So not only the sunnies are arriving, but also the green sandals from Aldo Rise Preen! I was excited, because those shoe collaborations have gone quietly…I discovered them by accident and boy was I happy to see them almost half off, because they launched some time in March. I read some unkind reviews afterwards though and my excitement ist turning to scepticism…..oh well, I can always send them back.

Wine tasting…

Standard

Yesterday our family and the family of our friends decided to have a little trip to a nearby town (about 50 km away). Turned out, it was wine tasting weekend there and it was swarming with people, plus the weather was really kind too.ย  We did not get much of wine to taste, except for this special type of wine, which one must drink within 8 days (we’ve got ourselves two bottles), oh well.
Anyway, outfit pics did not turn out too well, but we made some nice photos of a town and it’s surroundings. It is such a darn cute place. All the old town is within old city walls.

But since it was a bit too crowded, we got outside the walls after lunch and took a walk near vinyards and the river.


I am wearing: top – Aboriginal, capris(shorts?) – United Colours of Benetton, sandals – Oasis, bag – Roxy (from EBay), earrings – Asos, bangles – my standart set of bangles from Lithuania, Russia, India and Germany.

My earrings would always turn their pretty side away, so needed to hold them for the picture ๐Ÿ™‚ Nevermind the droopy expression.

Outfit post (what I wore this Summer)

Standard

Since the weather does not allow me to repeat any outfits that I wore this Summer, and take pictures, I need to dress up for a ‘photoshoot’ ๐Ÿ™‚

Here we go. This was an outfit that I sported several times back in June and July.

Top – Esprit, skirt and earrings – from a market in India, Sandals – Oasis, bag – vintage (I never thought that I would use such a fancy word to describe a bag I got from my grandma :D), bangles – India, Lithuania, Russia.

Please subtract the glasses from the picture. During the peak of usage of this outfit, it was simply too hot and too annoying to wear glasses, I needed to stick contacts in my eyes.

The skirt was aquired back in Autumn of 2007, when I was in India for my SAP course (yes, I’m a geek). Me and my colleagues went to the market called Dilli Haat (cannot guarantee that this is the correct spelling) to get presents for the people waiting for them back home :D. You need to pay to enter this market, I am a bit afraid to lie how much it costs, but it is really cheap (less than 1 euro for sure…maybe 15 rupees), but because of this fee there are no beggars, which, if you’ve been to India you will agree, is really relieving. The sellers rotate every two weeks, so you never know what you might find there. We bought a huge pile of wool scarves for ‘special price’, which would be given by us :). My colleague annoyed the sellers (he may have been Indian in his past life) until they would cave ๐Ÿ˜€ Anyway. I saw this skirt in that market too, while looking for a present for my niece. (She got a skirt with littlo bells :)) It is slightly too big, but I make it work :).

The bag goes really well with this whole outfit, IMHO. Strentghens the hippie vibe. I remember I asked my grandma around 9 years ago if she still had the bag and she asked to make sure – ‘that potatoe sack?’. After I got it from her, I dragged it around with me A LOT. Since it is made out of some synthetic material which is rather hard, the straps would break from time to time, my father was regularly employed by me to sow them back together ๐Ÿ™‚ This Summer I took the bag out again. It is awesome and I can say, that I have true piece of vintage in my closet :D.

The shoes (please nevermind the non existant pedicure). After seeing a collection from Prada with chandelier sandals and investigating Melissa Lady dragon shoes, I knew I would not be opposed to wearing plastic shoes. This was just a thought in the back of my head, not a conscious decision. But after I saw these on Asos, while looking for flat sandals for Summer, I knew I have to get them. They were definitely a hit this Summer, I wore them non stop. They go with everything ๐Ÿ˜€

Earrings. I got them at the same Dilli Haat market in India. All earrings I got in India are so heavy…They drag my ears down, but oh well, I love them!

Btw, I got a new haircut ๐Ÿ™‚ It is perfect to have a friend who is a hairdresser. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers.
