Repetition 2

Standard

 

I like new stuff. Even though it is rather consumerist, but new things have a positive effect on me. If I am even contemplating on getting a new piece, I get immediate rush of creativity – all kinds of outfits start popping in my head.

I was not sure about the dress. It is quite a staple on its own. It makes the outfit. So it seems too easy, you don’t need much effort in choosing the rest of the stuff. And I am not the one to do the things the easy way. But I sure am glad, that I convinced myself to get the dress after all.

And the dress has a story of course, not just me contemplating whether or not to get it. I got it back in July, when I went to Detroit for work. And shopping at an outlet mall was a must experience. My colleague and friend was coming to the mall to shop with me after her 9 hour flight. Talk about dedication! Unfortunately some later experiences turned my journey a bit sour – I got stuck at the airport the next day due to the cancelled flight and celebrated my birthday the next day in the office and on a subsequent flight home…Ridiculous way to celebrate your 30th, especially when you decide to drown your sorrows and flight attendant asks if you are old enough to drink alcohol. And this is the point – clothes have sentimental value.

Back to the outfit and how little effort is good sometimes. You just switch the shoes and you’re good to go. No lingering in front of the closet.

Outfit 1: dress – Calvin Klein, shoes – Pretty Ballerinas, bag – Zara.

Outfit 2: dress- Calvin Klein, shoes – Schuh, bag – Zara.

PINK! Yet again…

Standard

 

I just mentioned in the previous post, that I am into low key clothing at the moment. Well, this post is not a total contradiction (obviously) – the in yo face pink skirt is the only in your face thing in this outfit. And yes, I wore this to the office.

The one thing that obsessive fashion blog browsing has taught me is, that there is nothing wrong with wearing bright colors in Autumn and Winter. And since the fabric of the skirt is quite thick, I intend to wear it well way into Autumn at least, maybe combining them with some knee high boots. We’ll see how it goes.

And the rest of the outfit just lets the skirt do the talking. Twirling is better than twerking anyway.

You will be seeing much more of this bag, because this bag basically became the only bag that matters during the last couple of months. It helps me keep the outfits office-y. And I can do my grocery shopping without any additional bag, another awesome feature, that is much appreciated in the bags (and yes people do stare at you if you put your milk and sausage in the bag). And look how it can stand on its own! That’s a good bag!

Some random close ups and details of the skirt. It has a bow belt! How can you not love it.

And please ignore my finger in the next pic, the edge just did not want to stay up after a day at the desk.

So there you have it.

Outfit: body – Ganni, skirt – ASOS, shoes – Pretty Ballerinas, bag – Zara.

Cheers.

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.

Summer favorites

Standard

My reaction to the trend that I like usually goes like this:
First phase – ooooooh! Like! Want!
Second phase – damn, they’re all over the interwebs… looks like an incubator…me no like.
Third phase – hm, are ALL the girls still wearing it or can I buy it already?

This is just some random picture of me in my pink hat, so that the post would not look too lame.

Before I started reading fashion blogs, I never questioned if a trend is still fashionable, can I wear it? Frankly, I still don’t. As I mentioned before, if a trend catches on – it means you will have an enormous variety of choice. If you find something that fits you well, it does not matter if it is still trendy or not, you can wear it all you want. My only problem is, I need to wait until the big wave of the trend passes, so I would not feel like the trend obsessed gal and question if my judgment has been impaired by looking at too many pictures with nice outfits.

Now to the point – you know all those cut offs we’ve been seeing since last year? This trend brought me back to my teenage years, where I really wanted to cut all the pant legs off of my jeans (and I actually ruined a pair).

Anyway, this weekend we decided to do some live shopping and actually went to the store. It was pretty efficient and we did not get tired and worn out after the trip. The secret to successful shopping – setting a goal. In my case it was H&M, a pair of cut off jean shorts. I did my research online and found quite a lot of options, so this was my store of choice.

Here is another random picture to cut in the boredom of looking at a lot of letters. I will call it very artsy – Ladybug on Parsley.

There are a few things that I do not like about H&M. The stores are so huge and there are always so many people. Another annoying thing is, that organization in the store is usually beyond my understanding. All jean shorts hang in all different kind of places and you need to scout the whole store before you find all you need. And I needed to try all kinds of cut offs, since I had no idea what would look good on me. Eventually I picked four kinds and ended up narrowing down to two. One pair I grabbed just because of the light fabric, they were just denim shorts, not cut offs.

The actual cut offs I chose wear husband (boyfriend…whatever) cut. Thought they looked gooo-h-ood, the fabric was too thick for the summer and I decided not to get them.  They looked something like this, just the colour was a bit lighter:

I ended up getting the shorts that were not actual cut offs. Plus one stripey top.

And I must say, I found my summer’s favorites for this year. They go very well together and with other stuff in my closet as well. I am not very happy with the quality of the top, so I will be a bit disappointed, when it will fall apart in about 5 washing cycles, but oh well.

Cheers.

Outfit Post. Shoe Challenge #4

Standard

So this is crap what has happened to Shoeperwoman. What is up with the universe? Lately I find myself often observing all kinds of weirdness and thinking people = shit (please excuse my French). So much wrong and mean is all around, what the hell? I always tended to trust people, but I guess nowadays it is just being naive…Because that’s what happens when you believe in good in people…trust no one. It is sad.

So, to help Shoeperwoman in her quest for justice, I am posting this weekend’s outfit feat. my pink Blowfish flats and linking to her website 🙂

Outfit: t-shirt – Retro jeans, jeans – Vertus, bangles – my standard set from all over, sunnies – Polaroid.

Above you see a typical example of personal style blogging – nice posing, nice background, average outfit. And below is a typical example of me, because why go through life seriously, right? Let’s bring some silliness into this world and try and stay positive.

Some usual blah blah blah about my clothes. This t shirt is one of my favorites. I like how new things you buy at a store can look so retro. I just loooove this kind of t shirts. Also wearing my ancient pair of jeans, which I managed to take to the tailor after two years of them lying around in my closet – they needed a new zipper. This is my bestest pair of jeans – so amazingly comfortable and look gooooood. I am happy to have salvaged them from the dark and gloomy place that is my closet.

And here is a detail shot of my t shirt.

cheers.

Outfit post. New Shoes, baby!

Standard

I had a couple of friends visiting this weekend and while showing them around managed to make some pictures of my outfit.

Outfit: scarf and coat – Esprit, shoes – Asos, bag – Takko, tights – cannot remember. Not visible: skirt – Esprit, stripped sweater – Zara and t-shirt – New Yorker.

The shoes are…there are not words to describe. They are so beautiful, and the price I paid, makes them astonishing 😀 Original price was 110 pounds and I got them for 33! The heel is perfectly proportioned with the shape and they look great. AND they do not hurt my feet at all and are so comfortable. I walked around in them all day and evening(no band aids!). Even some accidental dancing happened. And all this didn’t result in any blisters. So…I’m in love.

Image 1 of ASOS TOTALLY Suede Premium Crepe Lace Up Boots

Originally there were two colours: the one above and another one, hm..copper would be the best to describe. I really liked them both, but decided, since I have knee boots of similar colour I will go for the colder one with contrasting shoe laces 🙂 But I think both pairs would have found their place in my wardrobe.

And here are more Autumn colours.

Hope you had a nice weekend as well. I still need rest 😀

Cheers.
