Off duty

Standard

I continue to freak out my colleagues and people around me in general, or at least make them lift their eye brows. Because why would someone wear weird ass white shoes and why do you need to wear ripped pants? 80s much? Yeah, bitches – 80s, FTW!

So I put on my moon boots (I have no idea why I call them that, they just remind me of astronaut boots for some reason) and go about my business earning looks. Which, I must say I am slowly learning to ignore. If I do notice them, then they just make me smile.

Outfit: jeans -H&M, top – asos, jacket – retro jeans, sneakers – MMM for H&M, bag – Sisley

I wanted high tops for quite a while now and when MMM for H&M were available for purchase, I did not think much about it.

I mean com’on! It is the re-edition of actual Margiela shoe!

They are pretty amazeballs fashionwise, but I do need to figure out how to wear them, since they are not that comfy. Not something you would expect from sneakers…Need to loosen them laces in the front a bit, so my wide feed would feel more welcome. The leather is pretty stiff, so I cannot lace them up all the way to the top, because then they press on the back of my legs :/ But with some compromise they are quite wearable, so I do not regret this purchase. Anyway, Marty McFly would approve, don’t you think?

Bee-tee-double-u, notice the difference in the photos? I finally got a proper lense! Hence, the outfit post and even some more to come.

cheers

Sunnies

Standard

I don’t mean to be snappish, but eyes are serious shit. Am I right? So I usually buy sunnies not just with UV filter, but also polarized. It is really great, especially when one is driving a car. The annoying thing is, that there are not that many choices with polarized lenses and I end up buying just OK glasses, not too expensive and that suit me, but they never have that ME factor…and so I caved and bought simple sun glasses going against my principles. Behold!

They are from H&M for Water collection and I am expecting to get them in the mail any day now. I love that retro something in their design – just lacks a convertible a 50s style dress and a scarf .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the contrasting black and white frame makes them look even more non standard. I hope they will not be too big for mah face!

Eurovision Fashion 2011. Serbia.

Standard

Eurovision is a strange phenomenon. A lot of people know it, even more don’t. Some love it, some hate it. I am a weird kind of viewer – for me it’s like a sports game – I can pretend to be an expert and comment on the performance of the participants, the sound, the quality, the meaning (or lack of) of lyrics and most of all – stage outfits.

In the past few years it was starting to get really sad. If it is a guy – then jeans and shirt or maybe a suit, if it is a lady – a dress, as tiny as possible for that matter. This year took an unexpected but nice turn towards classy – girls started wearing clothes again. There were quite a few mini dresses, but they did not channel any vibe of cheap. There were some weird choices of course, but all in all – it was quite pleasant to watch.

I would like to share with you my favorite performance – Serbian girls! They were just awesome! The song was nice and sunny and their clothes…Oh my! Retro, ftw! Colors! This is what I want to wear every day!
