Crocs

Standard

 

That’s right, yo! (I’ve been watching way too many episodes of Breaking Bad). Well not really. No matter how open to all the weirdness that is fashion I am, I still cannot get on board with the “classic” crocs. Though the new models I saw are actually not bad at all. But that is totally off the point.

Continuing the outfits from the botanical garden, I give you – crocodiles and palms.

This skirt happened almost two years ago with Versace for H&M. I hadn’t managed to wear it last summer. But I made sure that it did not lay around my closet this year. Silk in summer – very important. And how about those metal corners! Oh the attention to detail…

I went the easy way with the outfit – white t-shirt – done. Plus, you cannot overstretch your brain in the heat, while making too many complicated decisions. So the easy way – totally justifiable. The bag and shoes are from yesterday’s post, because – see previous sentence.

The bracelet is from ADR for H&M collection and is pretty flashy for my taste. But I managed to squeeze it in a couple of outfits this summer.

And last but not least – the shoes! Crocheted Toms. I am insanely happy with them – were my hand down favorite shoes this summer – proper ventilation – also very important!

I have no idea why, but cactuses (cacti!) seemed fitting in this post, so enjoy:

and some more…

 

Outfit: t-shirt – Esprit, skirt – Versace for H&M, shoes – Toms, Bag – vintage, Bracelet – ADR for H&M

 

Cheers.

THE Leggings

Standard

I finally figured out my password to my gmail account for the gallery with all the blog photos. I think I harassed someone accidentally, because it appears that I had forgotten my username as well and send requests about forgotten passwords and account unlocking to Google about someone else accounts…

THE leggings and what an odyssey it was to get them.. I was sitting half a day on November 17th clicking refresh every couple of minutes, since the website of H&M was not able to handle all the crazy shoppers.

Guess what? After the package arrived, surprise surprise – leggings were in a totally different size than I ordered! I was really disappointed and pissed. Who can mix up 36 with 42?! There was immediate rushing to the computer to order another pair. And of course 36 had already sold out. So I got 38 instead. Then after a couple of weeks the package came again. Oh joy! Tearing of a package and!..huh? Am I missing something? There was supposed to be a bag with some extremely bright seizure inducing colours here. Turns out – they sent me a long ugly coloured too big in size cardigan!

Anyway, I did not want to do anything anymore with H&M online store for this particular item(of course I called and yelled at them that I do not want to buy this thing anymore..another long story), so I ordered them on Ebay. Of course, I could have waited for ladies to return the stuff, since they had realized by now that they will not wear the clown leggings (I saw such comment on the interwebs – apparently clowns wear such pants..I thought they wear huge wide leg ones..whatever) and I could have gotten them eventually and maybe even on sale. But since I was really really really obsessed with those damn leggings and really really really pissed with the store, that I did not care anymore that I had to overpay on Ebay.

So. Here they are! (drums) The epic leggings from the epic Versace for H&M collection.

Naturally we are not experiencing the weather for suitable for the above outfits yet, but the world deserves to see.

Wearing:

The first picture: H&M dress, THE leggings and asos wedge shoes.

The second picture: shirt from my husband’s closet, belt from my mom’s closet, THE leggings and the Pretty Ballerinas. There is also a Desigual clutch in my hands. Nevermind the hair thing on my wrist.

So there.

Blah Blah New Year’s Resolutions

Standard

Whoa did I fall off the face of the Earth… Not that I do not have anything to write about, I just do not have the energy. I am always jealous when I see how much people manage to do during the day. It does not work that way for me – after a day at work my ass just glues itself to the couch. I go to sleep at 9 in the evening and can barely get up at 6…

I keep asking myself a question, how do those bloggers manage to take their pictures in a decent light? I mean, I leave for work when it is still dark and I come home when it is already dark. I’ve put some crappy pictures on this blog, but I really do not want it to be a standard. Maybe will try taking more pictures indoors, but for now instead of photos I will publish my complaints and the things that annoy me instead of outfits. And now, some good stuff.

I finally got a chance to do some shopping for the first time in a couple of years. Not anything extraordinary – some H&M sale abuse, but I cannot wait for Spring to take the stuff out for a spin. Since my closet is now quit happy with the instant clothing for the time being, I decided that the next thing I will buy will be some fancy shmancy designer piece. Because…well, why not, right? So this is my first New Year’s resolution – get my first real designer piece (Versace for H&M does not count). Most likely shoes, but who knows. This is supposed to be a fashion blog, such resolutions are appropriate.

Another resolutions is – to try out more beauty stuff. The next on my list is nail polish and hot curlers. I kindda started already in November with the nails, but I want it to become a routine.

I also want to adjust my style for the office. I want to look as myself, but not too out there. I do not want to wear some classy grey suits and black shoes to work.

But people here are really afraid of color…I think I am the only one who wears pink or red shoes in the office. Maybe because it is a total middle of nowhere and people are really conservative. But I could be that breath of fresh air, right? The gals are quite excited to see me in my Versace for H&M leggings, but I do not think that the office will get that from me. It is not just the shyness, but I wonder what would the high management think, if I would appear in some meeting wearing leggings with differently colored pant legs and all the rest would be wearing grey suits…

In case you were wondering – these are the leggings.

 

 

The most epic leggings of all time!

So far those are the resolutions. Do not want to be an overachiever… 🙂
