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.
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.
On Saturday we did some random running around the town, buying expensive food and stuff. Got some fancy oil with herbs, some Christmas liquors to try out (considering to make this year’s gifts edible/drinkable :)). No no, we’re not in Christmas shopping frenzy, but it never hurts to have ideas, right?
My wedge ankle boots are the bestest shoes I own and I wear them almost all the time. Since they have a littlo hippy vibe to them and 70 rock in general, I went for my flared jeans (not sure if this kind of cut is called flare, but it is wider than boot cut, so I think it should be flare :D) and hippy blouse from zara. I like the blue and yellow combination from earlier post, so thought – you can never go wrong with this 😀 Other stuff – my standard Autumn coat and also my standard Autumn/Winter bag from Sisley (during this time of year this combination is sort of inescapable…).
Outfit: jacket and jeans – Esprit, shirt – pull and bear, top – Zara, shoes – ASOS, bag – sisley, scarf – soaked in luxury.
So far I think the photos for this post turned out the best out of all my photo shoots (thanks to my photographer/husband, who was carrying the bags and was patient enought to take photos :)). I remembered to smile more or less while posing and didn’t forget to pose while smiling :D. Plus, didn’t forget to get some detail shots. Improvin’ – you’re doin’ it rite 🙂
p.s. one of these earrings broke..I have no idea how – I was just stading in the bathroom in front of the mirror and one of the stones just fell into the sink… Mah man needed to perform some plumbing exercises on the sink to get it out…
So, I’ve finally got a chance to debut my ankle boots on the blog. They are awesome and I wear them with everything – skirts, jeans, shorts you name it. The annoying part is that they have a cut out part on the side, so when wearing pants or leggings I have to dig well to find proper nylon socks to wear with the shoes (as I mention in a post about socks – I don’t own any black ones). With skirts and shorts – totally different story. Colourful tights and socks spice up outfits perfectly!
Outfit: top – H&M, shirt dress – Sisley, leggings – Esprit, parka – Asos pac-a-parka, ankle booties – Ashley London.
The dress itself is a bit weirdish. It is not cut as normal shirt dress, but it has a rather bubbly butt area..and a clip button to button on the side, which makes it shorter and assimetrycal.
In summer I wear this dress with flat sandals or ballerina flats.
And here are the shoes, wonderful shoes. Sigh…When I was trying them out back in February (or March), a lot of small stones got stuck in the sole 😦 This is how Germans save themselves from falling on slippery snow…by throwing lots of small stones on the pavement. My poor shoes…
This turned out quite nicely.
Much to learn in the posing area…
I have no idea how those personal style bloggers do it with taking pictures in the streets. Especially with the tripod. Good thing I have a photographer…Easier to handle all the staring :).
Finally got to taking some pictures of my outfit. Wore this when we went for videos earlier today (wore the same stuff during the day too, just with black top…was a bit too moody for me, so I changed later).
I finally found proper checked pants, I’ve been on a hunt for like a year. They are really cool 😀 Perfect stretch for tight pants (these are jeggings or treggings or whatever :D). Really comfortable and looks great.
Outfit break down: top, t shirt and pants – Esprit, jeans jacket – Sisley, shoes and brooch – Asos, wristlet – Desigual.
Ghotsly look – consequence of the abscence of mascara. I have non existent eye lashes which need to be painted..But I’m still experiencing some weird problems with my lids, maybe my skin does not like the make up remover, so I look like a ghost most of the time.
I love this pic. Looks like Alice in wonderland saying goodbye to her feet.
And here is the detail shot of the brooch.
Aquisition of the wristlet has a story of its own. My friend and I had an evening of shopping in London, after work. We were on a hunt for shoes but also didn’t shy away from going into other shops for unplanned purchases, since it was sale season. Once we came into Desigual (which in my opinion is awesome but really overpriced) I fell in love with this thing. But my friend convinced me not to buy it…60 pounds you know… After we left the store, I wanted to go back, but once again, my friend told me to get over myself. I was obsessing about it for several days and was prepared to pay the price (instead of eating lunch for some time).
One evening a bunch of Lithuanians from the office London went out to celebrate my birthday…and guess what I found in an unexpected birthday present bag 😀 I did not expect gifts at all so this was twice as great.
I love when I have a story related to a piece of clothing 🙂
