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.

Slippers

Standard

As a kid I could never get used to wearing slippers. I would simply forget to put them on, no matter how many times mom would tell me to. After I moved out of my parents’ home and to a university dorm, I started to appreciate the practical use that comes with slippers. People would come and go, bringing the outside dirt to our room (there were 3 of us living in one room, that’s right), so it was more or less unpleasant to run around barefoot or wearing socks. (I also have to mention, that in Lithuania people do not usually walk around in the apartment wearing outdoor shoes, it is normal to take your shoes off, when you come home or visit someone.)

So, I finally grew into wearing slippers and started appreciating the warmth and comfort they give during the cold months. My current slippers have expired and I got myself a new pair. This time I decided to chic it up a notch.

LULU LUXURY - Hausschuhe - purple/lime green LULU LUXURY - Hausschuhe - purple/lime green

Instead of some boring typical slippers I chose something more interesting and more me. I fell in love with these for their color and sharpey-ness.

But the 70 euro price tag was ridiculous (just a tad…). Few days ago I found them on sale on amazon for 26. Not that this was the price I would gladly pay for a pair of slippers (but if I was to convert the amount of Lithuanian money that I would consider giving up for such a purchase and convert it to euros, it not exceed more than 10…I guess I could by a bunch of plastic bags to wrap around my feet for this amount in this overpriced country).
The slippers arrived yesterday in a nice purple bag. I followed a couple of reviews and ordered size 40 instead of 38…dunno, I think 39 would have been sufficient, but the rubber band is quite tight, so maybe 40 is a better choice after all. I have to break them in still (because of that damn rubber band), but so far they seem comfy, warm and cute. Plus they are suede, so I guess that explains the price tag. I think we will all be very happy together.

 

Cheers.

Annoyance

Standard

I didn’t have proper conditions to take pictures of this outfit, when I was wearing it (what a surprise…). Just before New Year my husband and I went to see ‘Grease’ (the clothes were awesome 😀 performance…not so much). Light in the evening was, of course, crappy, so I thought to myself – next time…

Today while laying in bed I finally realized, that there actually IS a spot at home, that I could use for taking pictures, just need to move some stuff around, but… It is a plain white wall and my camera very stubbornly refused to focus automatically…my visions is worse than  my camera’s so my manual focus magic didn’t turn out too well either…There were more outfits from this infamous photo shoot, but everything is blurry, in other words – total embarrassment… Not that this isn’t, but I am just sick of not having posted any outfits in a while because of the quality of the pictures. So, the point is to document what I wear, evaluate and evolve, right? 🙂 In other words – no matter how lame the pictures are, at least these have to reach the world out there.

Outfit is not exactly complete – no make up unfortunately, but I got so annoyed adjusting the camera, that I could not be bothered putting more effort into something that is usually not very important for me (or was…as of Christmas I expanded my make up kit and it is not limited anymore to just mascara). Also, I was wearing a black long sleeved top under the dress, so I would not get cold.

Outfit: dress – Promod, belt – vintage from my mom, boots – Bronx, tights – Asos, ring – something from Disney collection, cannot remember the brand, earrings – from India.

I just love this trend, that’s been around for quite a long while now – BELTING! FTW! I think it is a really nice way to add that something to the outfit. I am not very good at it…yet 😀 This is the only outfit so far that I can pull off (except for belts in jeans, which are more of a necessity rather than a fashion choice).

The ring was a birthday gift from my friends (from my wish list), it is from Alice in Wonderland collection or smth :). Follow the white rabbit (Matrix alert!…dear lord…my mind just cannot stick to one thing at a time, can it?). Continuing a short acquisition story – I bought the dress back in 2008, when I worked in Budapest. Quite nice to have things from all over the world in my closet 🙂 It is not just about fashion or style, but also – about memories 🙂 And this dress did enjoy Budapest 😀

Cheers.

 

p.s. note to self – get a remote control for the camera.

Outfit Post. Winter Uniform

Standard

As I wrote in a previous post – winter is a dormant time for me. Plus I like to feel comfortable in my clothes. Which means – I want to be warm and able to walk. I own only one winter jacket and two pairs of shoes for winter. The infamous UGGs and a pair of The North Face boots (I got them for the trip to the mountains).

Outfit: Boots – UGG Knightsbridge, pants – GAP corduroy (got them on sale online), jacket – United Colours of Benetton cold weather down jacket, headband – ASOS, gloves – can’t remember the brand..from amazon, bag – Keen (can wear it inside out as well), earrings – from the fair in Lithuania.

So, whether I want it or not, my winter outfits turn into a day to day uniform. It IS annoying, but I’d rather be warm than lose my toes or bitch about the cold. I mean how can girls wear peep toe boots, when there’s snow outside?!

I found corduroy pants on sale just before Christmas and without too much thinking I ordered them (gift for myself :D). Now I will tell you why. Because they are frickin’ warm. Jeans always attract cold and no matter how much I love denim, but  I think corduroy or wool is THE way to go in winter.

Now I will tell you why I am pro UGGs. I think it is ridiculous to try and stay ‘true to your style’ blah blah blah during winter, if you know winter the way I do.

It is simply too cold. I want my shoes to have fur inside. For some reason most of the winter boots are not lined with fur, they just have fur in the shaft…I mean…Have the manufacturers seen snow or walked in the temperatures below 0 degrees? What the hell?

I do not want to wear heels while walking in the snow or on ice. I man I would love to, but this is the time of year I sacrifice everything for comfort.  And during this season you cannot simply change into ballet flats, once you are tired of heels, you know.

Another thing, winter boots are very expensive, so I cannot afford to have many pairs..yet 😀 So, the reasonable thing is to invest into really warm good pair of boots.

Prices for UGGs are a bit ridiculous, but I found mine on Ebay at relatively reasonable price last Winter. I am wearing them for the second season now and they do their job well. My feet are warm, I do not need to put on ten pairs of socks 🙂 And they look pretty nice.

I love that shoes of this model have the zipper in the back, it is so much more convenient to put them on, also tuck pants in.

There are few down sides – first of all – the sole – I was paranoid that it will wear off quite soon, but so far – it is holding more or less OK. The bigger problem now is – the little stones on the streets, that are used on ice and snow, instead of sand. They stick into the soft sole…but so far so good. Another thing – if it is wet outside (melting snow and stuff), I do not wear them – this kind of leather (suede) doesn’t like water. It is better to buy boots of simple leather, not inside out one 🙂

But anyway, if you can afford good warm winter boots – go for it! And UGGs are a good choice, IMHO. I just think, that UGGs look a bit weird, when worn during warm season, e.g. with shorts and t-shirts…but who am I to judge.

I wore this outfit on our day trip to the town of Aachen. And here is what I was wearing under – (not visible Pull and Bear navy button down shirt) Asos jersey top and a guitar thing on a chain 🙂

And here is an example pharmacy fashion in the above mentioned town:

cheers.
