VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS 2016 -Red carpet looks

Hi guys! It’s time for another red carpet post, which makes me excited, because those posts are my favorite ones. I already watched the entire show and I’ve picked couple of red carpet outfits I liked, but I have to say this red carpet wasn’t my favorite. The looks aren’t horrible, I’ve gathered tons of mediocre, nice looks, but … I didn’t find even one that would make me go “wow!”. Anyway … Let’s just begin.

bHOLLAND RODEN
Tinashe (left) actually resembles Eva Longoria a bit in this picture. I like her make up and I like the “scarf” detail around her neck, plus the colour of the dress is awesome. The dress is a bit baggy, but it suits her thin figure. Holland Roden‘s look (right) disappointed a bit, just because she has a gorgeous figure and this … Coat? It ruins it for her. If she went with a killer ponytail and a jumpsuit, she’d look bombastic! I like the angelic vibe of the white, but this is such a waste …

Zara Larsson (left) looked gorgeous, I love the job that her make-up and hair stylists did, because it suits her. I cherish the fact that the dress isn’t flat and boring. It has some avangarde elements, but I admit I wouldn’t wear it myself. I also think she could have picked prettier pair of shoes, but I like the ankle strap. Winnie Harlow (right) looked just as gorgeous. I like the fact that the dress has two different parts – upper and lower. I wish the colour of the dress was different, but at the same time black is the safe choice, so at least she tried something different. I love her hair!

The left dress that Naomi Campbell wore on the red carpet is pretty, but it’s also mediocre. The right dress is the dress that she wore on the actual awards before she presented Rihanna’s performance and it suits her so much better. That should have been her original look. Too bad it wasn’t.

Liliana VazquezHALSEY
The outfit that Lilliana Vazquez is wearing is something I’d consider wearing myself. It’s very my style. However, I wouldn’t pick it for a red carpet look. Sure, this is not the Grammys or the Oscars, so you don’t want to overdress yourself, but she still could have upgraded the original look. If she just added a  diamond necklace and put her hair in a bum, it would have already looked a lot different. The material of Halsey’s (right) jumpsuit bothers my eye. If she fixed that, it could have been a bombastic look. I like her hair and make-up, though.

HAILEY BALDWINgettyimages-597563258
Halsey Baldwin (left) was easily the prettiest woman of the night. Her hair suits her so well! The jumpsuit, on the other hand … Let’s say I see the idea and it suits her. The fact that I’d never wear that kind of a material doesn’t matter, because it’s not my outfit. Ariana Grande (right) always has girly and cute outfits. I would have extended the top, but other than that, I like her outfit. And the ponytail is gorgeous!

HAILEE STEINFELDCarly Aquilin
I noticed that I liked most of the hair and make-up styling, which means the beauty stylists did a kick-ass job, when the fashion stylist obviously disappointed me, because I keep on trying to fix the outfits😛 Hailee Steinfeld‘s (left) short dress looks good on her, because she has long legs. I also cherish the bold move to use a bunch of colours. I love the lower part of the dress, but the upper one and the sleeves aren’t my personal style. Carly Aquilino’s (right) decision to use a nude colour was awesome. It’s great for her skin tone. I also once again have to congratulate the beauty stylists, this hair colour is absolutely magical and suits her way better than the red one.

Beyonce … She was the star of the night. I’m incredibly glad she won so many awards, her performance was on fire and the Beyonce/Blue Ivy date just makes our hearts melt. That’s that. I had to let that out.

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, then you know how much I roasted Britney Spear‘s red carpet look last year (right). That’s why I have to admit that she looks gorgeous this year (left). The dress is her style, but it fits her well and it’s quiet and ladylike. She looks a lot better this year. Kuddos to her. Also, her performance was quite OK.

That’s all about the red carpet … Nobody really vowed me, but it wasn’t the worst red carpet ever.
The show itself … Let’s say the hosts were incredibly annoying, but I liked all of the performances and I am happy about 80% of the wins. Rihanna especilly slayed with her last performance of the show (Stay/Diamons/Love on the brain mash-up) and did you know she performed four times all together? They really wanted to make her feel special.

rihanna-drake-vmas
The one that made her feel ESPECIALLY special was Drake with his touching speech for her Vanguard award. It was beautiful.

That’s … That. Which outfits were your favorite, which performance slayed your life and what are your thoughts all in all? Let me know in the comments😉

 

Playing with styling: Tunnel vision

It’s once again time to play with styling! Let’s go.

yI’ve tried creating tons of sets with this gorgeous blue top. I always ended up feeling disappointed. The top reminds me of an upper part of a dress that a princess would wear to a party, so I wanted perfection. My problem was that I didn’t look at it as an upper part of a dress at first, so I ended up styling it with black elegant pants. I thought it would work together, but the entire outfit ended up being so dark and sad. I felt like I can do better! Then I created this set and even though the blue is dark, the outfit seems full of life, fun and kind of girly. I definitely love this combination! The top isn’t the only thing I love, the skirt is just as beautiful. It’s actually very simple, but the length is perfect and I love the high waist. The shoes are magical, too!

Celozaslonski zajem 27. 08. 2016 155851.bmpI prefer the first set, but here is another way of styling the gorgeous top. I’ve really tried using items I normally wouldn’t – not together, at least. I would never consider styling the gentle pink coat next to this top, I’d prefer using black. I always try combining dark with more dark and light with more light, but now I’m trying to experiment a bit and mix dark colours with light ones. The combination is actually more lovable. And this top looked sad with a combination of black, like I said in the beginning. I did use formal pants this time, but white ones seem a lot different from the black ones, because … Obviously, they’re not dark. I don’t know what is it about this set, but I just like it, that’s it. It’s not “brave”, but it’s not boring either.

Which set do you prefer? Let me know in the comments! Till next time😉

Friday’s five favorites

I don’t know why (or since when foCelozaslonski zajem 26. 08. 2016 173401.bmpr that matter), but I suddenly have a new obsession with scarfs/bandanas. This Ellos Collection one is particularly beautiful. I love the blue&white combination and the shade of the blue is just gorgeous. It costs 11€, which isn’t pricey. Bandanas/scarfs suit both rock and country style and you can use them next to either casual or formal clothing. They’re great.

Celozaslonski zajem 26. 08. 2016 173800.bmpIt looks like blue is a dominant choice in this post. I love this Shrimps Blue Chambray Floral mini skirt. It costs 68€, but it’s sadly sold out. I don’t own or wear mini skirts, ever, but I would consider making an exception this time. I love the details of the pockets and the entire painting of the skirt where different shades of blue link together and connect with a flower pattern. It deserves to be on the list of my Friday’s five favorites.

Celozaslonski zajem 26. 08. 2016 174405.bmpI don’t create Polyvore sets with dresses, but I definitely believe every woman should own as many beautiful dresses as possible. The clothing is easy to style and it brings out a woman’s figure beautifully. That’s why I decided I need to give a shoutout to the Balmain Contrasted Crepe sleeveless mini dress. I once again don’t like the fact that it’s a mini dress, like I didn’t like the mini skirt … But I like the blackness and the gorgeous lines. They’re created with a good understanding of a body, they just flow through the dress. It’s sold out as well.

Celozaslonski zajem 26. 08. 2016 174808.bmp.jpgI love John Lewis’ clothing, which you might have noticed, because I often use their items in my sets. This Miss Selfridge Petite Gingham Shell top costs only 26€ and is an item from John Lewis. One of my favorite colour combinations is the black and white, so this seems particularly like my stlye. I also like the dots. I can imagine styling this top next to either white/black formal pants or a casual pair of jeans. Both works, that’s the beauti of it. Plus, your figure will look fabulous, because even though it’s a tight item, the pattern “hides your insecurities” a bit.

Celozaslonski zajem 26. 08. 2016 175421.bmp.jpgThe last item I picked are these gorgeous heels and I’m ending the post with style and a … Big price. They cost 615€, because they’re Jimmy Choo’s, but you can find similiar heels far less pricey in other “simple” shops, so no worries. I love everything about these shoes. I love the nude colour, the heel isn’t too high, the posture of the shoe itself is gorgeous and the ankle strap won me over. I love ankle straps on high heels, so I truly can’t find a mistake with these shoes.

Floral journey

Unkiss me
It’s time for another Polyvore set post! I’ve created this just couple of days ago and I instantly loved it, because it’s definitely my style. I love how the scarf and the bag match – I love the items both individually and matched together. These kind of silky scarfs are beginning to be more popular – women love wearing them even if it’s not cold outside. It’s more of a fashion statement and it looks great with tops like the one I used, because we’d have a naked neck without the scarf and this way it looks less naked. You don’t have to use a lot of colours in order for an outfit to be interesting. This outfit is a combination of only two colours: black and blue, yet it doesn’t seem boring. The skirt is just fabulous. It will fit your body figure beautifuly and make you look thinner. The high heels are just as beautiful. It’s a shame that they’ll get hidden a bit under that skirt, but we have to wear something! We could just as easily use a shorter black skirt, I am sure it would match the outfit just as much.

All of these items are pretty pricey, I hope nobody is frustrated at that fact, but I don’t check the prices when I’m creating an outfit, because I don’t intend to buy anything anyway. Since the fashion is growing, we can always find similiar items for far less price if we want to. That being said, you can recreate this outfit in other ways.

This combination seems quite formal, there are easy ways how to tone that down, too, but I just love the essence of this outfit, so I haven’t tried using anything else.

What do you think of this? And don’t forget! Tomorrow is a Friday, so I will be making a Friday’s five favorites post. Be there or be square😛

Girly vibe

I caa932c6af2cfacefb43825696bfc07a68n’t even begin to describe how much this isn’t my style! I always prefer a rock vibe, instead of a girly one. However, sometimes you create a combination of items that you wouldn’t wear, but you still love the idea of it being worn by somebody else. I love the gentle shades of colours. I’ve talked about this top already, it was part of my Friday’s five favorites post, so it only made sense to try to create an outfit with this gorgeous piece. It’s the one thing I’d wear in real life. I like how the necklace makes this outfit look wealthier and I like the fact that the high heels fit in with the top and the necklace. The blue skirt just seems like something you’d put on for a night walk in the summer and it tones down the “formal” vibe of the top and the high heels.

951f28d3b50ead23141e89f43b8ccf60.jpgHere’s another girly outfit. I’ve picked cheap items – the top costs only 10€, the skirt costs 12€, the shoes are 23€ and the necklace is 19€. The bag is the only thing I didn’t pick because it would be cheap, it costs 165€, but I felt like I had to exaggerate with something!😛
I love the necklace of this outfit, because such a cheap and plain top suddenly stands out. That’s the coolest thing about jewellry: if you wear “bold” clothing, you don’t need any. However, if your clothing seems kind of “boring”, the jewellry will definitely fix that. If you’ve noticed, this outfit actually has the same colour palette as the upper one! I didn’t plan on doing that, but I definitely think these colours seem girlier.

That’s it. Which outfit do you prefer and why? What’s your favorite item all in all? Let me know in the comments! Till next time x

Friday’s five favorites

Tfriday's five favoriteshe first item I’d love to talk about today is this Zahara Structured Top. It features a sweetheart neckline and a figure flattering cropped cut. It even has a discreet back zip! I love the girly vibe of this top, even though I’ve mentioned before that I am not a fan of pink. But, I like gentle shades, so this is an exception.
It costs 105€ and you can get it at coast-stores.com.

My second Friday’s favorite item is this Monique Lhuillier skirt. It111.png features a high rise with a fitted waistband, a floor length column silhouette with slip pockets at the hips, and an exaggerated split at the front. I love everything about it. I think it would even fit well with the upper top! This piece is very elegant and tight enough to make your awesome figure pop. The length of the skirt could almost be boring, if it wasn’t for the slip that shows your legs in the most sexy, yet classy way possible. Everything works.
It’s sadly sold out.

shoes.jpg
These shoes are sadly another sold out item at the cost of only 11€! That’s basically for free. I am not sure how would they work once you put them on your feet, because of all of these details. But I think they are beautiful. I like the opened toe and the gentle shade of the yellow. It’s definitely classy.

yay.jpgMy fourth pick is this top. It seems pretty basic, but the lines make an awesome structure of the top. They’re almost invisible, yet noticeable. I can’t explain it. It’s also made out of 3% elastane. In order for a top to fit beautifuly, it needs to have elastane. You can get this top in other colours, too, such as gentle blue and gentle grey. All of the colours look beautiful, but black fits my personal style best. You can get it for only 28€ at misselfridge.com.

toppp
The tops have all of me attention today. I hope that doesn’t bother any of you, I just stumbled upon great pieces that I wanted to represent, that’s all. I didn’t plan it😛
This Gillian Velvet Cross Back Bralet top truly won me over. I love the colour, the shiny material, the length and the cross. I admit I’ve had troubles styling it next to anything, but only because I’ve lacked imagination. I’m sure there are great ways to style this beautiful piece. And it costs only 9,29€! What a time to be alive! You can get yours at boohoo.com

It was my main focus to represent the items I love, but to also make sure they’re not overly pricey in case anyone would like to buy something.
Take care and have a fabulous Friday. I hope you treat yourself well today with some new clothing😉

Foreign

Hi guys! I’ve always posted my personal Polyvore sets on this blog, but I’ve decided to change the process for the first time. In this special post, I will be posting outfits that created some of the people I follow on Polyvore and I’ll explain what I love about them and therefore giving a shoutout to those accounts.

foreignThis is “Untitled #359” by zalarupar. The reason I think of this as something foreign is the fact that this isn’t necessarily my personal style. I like the top, but I find the sleeves a bit annoying, so I probably wouldn’t use this item in a set. I think the skirt is pretty, but I would style it next to more neutral colours, such as black. Saying that, I am excited the Polyvore user didn’t do that, because she reached out of my personal limits. I like the fact that the bag matches the top and the high heels almost match the bag, but I would definitely change these high heels with a pair of shoes that don’t have a pattern. It seems as if I critized the work of this Polyvore user, but that isn’t the case at all, I was simply explaining why is this foreign to me. However, I still love it. The outfit is not boring at all.

foreign 2This second set is called “Без названия #426” by @songjieun. This is foreign, but it seems a lot closer to me than the first set, because it’s definitely more my style. I love the skirt! It’s awesome. Sometimes you want to go with an all-black outfit, but a beautiful pattern like this brings some energy to the outfit. On the other hand, I don’t like the top, even though it’s very popular. I simply don’t think a top like this would flatter my figure, that’s why I’m staying away from it. I love the shoes and the bag, but because of the skirt, I would rather use a pair of gently blue high heels. That way the skirt matches in more than one way. However, I think this is gorgeous and I would still think about wearing the original outfit without my changes.

foreign 3This third set is called “friday fun clutch” and it was made by @nanawidia. This outfit is, just as the first one, out of my comfort zone. I don’t like pink and I don’t wear it at all. However, I like the structure of this set. I like the fact that the pink is so gentle and everything matches up together – the top, the high heels, the sunglasses and the bag. She toned the pink-ness down by styling blue jeans. It’s clever and awesome. For me, there’s too much pink and I would only consider wearing the top and the high heels seperately. However, if I saw a woman wearing this, I wouldn’t think for a second that she isn’t working it. We are comfortable with what we know best. Therefore, I personally wouldn’t feel comfortable in this outfit. But that doesn’t mean I don’t cherish the combination.

That’s it. It felt exciting for me to talk about something I didn’t create, I think that’s a cool change. Don’t forget to check out these accounts and also prepare yourself for another post on here tomorrow. It’s a Friday, which means I am preparing a “Friday’s five favorites” post.
Take care!
