Emmys 2016 – Red carpet favorite looks

Hello guys! I promised I’d post a red carpet post dedicated to Emmys, didn’t I? This day is coming to an end (almost) in my country, but it takes time to go through all of the moments and the looksūüėõ

amy-landeckerkerry-washington
I absolutely love Amy Landecker‘s (left) look. Because of the colours, the material, the design itself and the patterns, the dress looks youtful and girly. I would have changed the upper part of the dress, but I think it looks great on her. Kerry Washington (right) rocked the preggo look, she is going to be one of the prettiest new mommys!

terrence-howard-and-mira-pakviola-davis
Terrence Howard and Mira Pak didn’t work too hard to match up, that’s obvious, but I love Mira’s dress! It might look a bit like a prom dress, but she looks like a princess in it and the flowy lower bottom of the dress is constructed amazingly. She resembles Naya Rivera a bit in this picture! Viola Davis (right) became one of my favorite women in the industry, I have a lot of respect for her and I love her choice! I haven’t seen her in bright dresses that often, so this makes me excited. Pink suits her so well and she also looks like a princess.

portia-doubledayolivia-culpo
Portia Doubleday¬†(left) could have went with a paler/less bold colour for a dress, because she is very pale herself and nude would look amazing on her, I am sure of that. However, red suits her too and she is gorgeous as ever. I love how Olivia Culpo (right) didn’t play it safe. We haven’t seen anybody wearing a dress like that, but it’s one of my favorite picks. The colours work so well together.

constance-wuemmy-rossum
Constance Wu‘s look (left) is probably my favorite look of the night. I don’t know where to start. It has all of my favorite colours, it’s not boring at all, the cleavage is just right, it flows right at the bottom and, the most important thing … She rocks it. Not everyone¬†can pull off a dress like this, but she succeeded. Emmy Rossum (right) looked angelic in white. I love the black colour, but sadly it has become the boring choice at red carpets … White is working it way better and she knew that. The dress point out her body figure beautifully.

rami-malekrami-male2k
The one thing you might not know about me is that I am a huge fan of Mr. Robot (have been since the very beginning, may I point out) and Rami Malek is one of my favorite celebrities right now. He is such a humble, kind guy. The role he has in the show is incredibly complexed, but he does it with such ease. I loved his boyish black and white combination and he won the Emmy for the best actor in drama, which makes me incredibly happy! That was the best part of the awards.

Here are some of the looks that aren’t my favorite, but they almost made it …

shiri-applebykristen-bell
I very much respect the bold choice of the colour that Shiri Appleby (left) used. Kristen Bell (right) probably had a lot of fun in this dress, but it doesn’t exactly seem like red carpet material to me.

tori-kellysarah-hyland
I love Tori Kelly (left) and I think she looks absolutely gorgeous, but the upper part of the dress seems a bit clumsy, as if it doesn’t fit her right. When I saw Sarah Hyland‘s choice (right) for the first time, I hated it, but it quickly grew on me. I appreaciate the fact that it’s something new, it suits her well, but it’s yet again not exactly red carpet material to me. I love how it flows, though.

kate-mckinnonemilia-clarke
Kate McKinnon (left)¬†won me over with the red colour, I am a sucker for red. But … It seems too plain and the bottom part could have fit her better. Emilia Clarke (right) is a gorgeous woman and she rocks the nude colour, but something is missing for me, I don’t quite know what it is … Maybe a necklace or a different upper part of the dress.

Well … With 700 words, I am about to say goodbye! I have yet to see the awards, but the red carpet was one of the better ones, everybody looked beautiful. I also have to congratulate to all of the new Emmy “keepers”.

Lions

Hi guys! I am sorry for being unactive for such a long time, but I lose a lot of productivity as school starts (aka I use the productivity for other stuff), so it takes a lot more effort for me to actually make good/any posts. Here I am now though, let’s start with another Polyvore set, shall we?

LionsI’ve created this piece just days ago and I have to admit I’d wear it in real life if I got hands on these cool items. I love the vintage touch of the denim jacket and the simplicity of the black top. We could easily add a necklace with it if we wanted to spice the outfit up. You probably know by now that long skirts a
re my favorites, but I like them tight! I don’t like skinny¬†jeans, because I have big thighs and I feel like I might as well die in them, they’re so uncomfortable for me … But I love when a black skirt fits you well, points out your figure (aka that great ass :P) and you immediately feel so much more feminine and prettier. For a touch of colour, I had to use these gorgeous red heels. Chances are you won’t even see them, they might get covered by the skirt, but they’re an important part of the outfit nonetheless. The bag and the hat close the outfit up. This feels like rock, girliness and feminism all together and I really do love it.What do you think of it, would you wear this or what are the items that you would change?

Also, remember! The Emmys are this weekend (2 am Monday for my Slovenian friends, isn’t that great …?) and I will definitely have a red carpet post for you ready soon!

Take care,
Tamara

Sunday’s five favorites

Hi guys! I normally have a “Friday’s five favorites” column, but this week was totally crazy, so I didn’t have any time for a post. I’ve decided not to skip it, though, because I love giving shoutouts to pretty clothing, so here is a post anyway.

Celozaslonski zajem 4. 09. 2016 115829.bmpMy number one pick is the¬†Vampire Mouth Crop Top. The reason I love it so much is because of the rock vibe it has. I love rock clothing. I wouldn’t call myself a rocker exactly, but I’d say I have a sense of one if that makes sense! The pink and the black work beautifully together. If there’d be no motive, the top would look plain and boring, but this way it couldn’t be more perfect. You can get one at Sandysshop for only 8,87‚ā¨ aka 9,90$.

Karl Lagerfeld K/Kocktail Karl pouch is sadly moreCelozaslonski zajem 4. 09. 2016 120506.bmp.jpg¬†expensive (at the cost of 135‚ā¨), but there’s something about it that pulls me closer. The colours work beautifully together, the entire design is well thought and the “sunglasses” give it a cool vibe. If you go in with a simple, all-blue outfit, this purse will make it pop. You can buy it here.

Celozaslonski zajem 4. 09. 2016 120918.bmp.jpgI’m sadly (yet) not going back to less expensive items, because this Roland Mouret Tabley mini dress costs 830‚ā¨ (and that is the REDUCED price, may I say). I won’t lie, I personally think it’s not worth the money at all. It’s worth of making a cheaper copy, thoughūüėõ I love how the waist is coloured with black, because that will make you look thinner for sure, yet the dress is grey. The length is perfect, but he upper part of the dress is my favorite.

Celozaslonski zajem 4. 09. 2016 121447.bmp.jpgWe have to be careful while wearing this Dorothy Perkins mini skirt, because the motive could look like a tablecloth. However … I love the whiteness, the innocence of the skirt and while there isn’t much going on, it’s still not boring. It has a girly vibe, yet¬†it has the potential to make your figure pop in all the ways you want to. It costs 49‚ā¨, which isn’t expensive, but like I’ve said … The motive makes me a bit sceptical.

Celozaslonski zajem 4. 09. 2016 122155.bmp
I’m finishing off with Black point¬†Suede flats that are now reduced to only 17‚ā¨ (you better get them quickly!). I¬†think they have a minor technical issue … My personal opinion is that the covered space should be a bit smaller in order for the shoes to look more appealing. However, I love the fact that they are black and flat, plus they have the feminine¬†ankle strap. Awesome!

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-mtv-vma-red-carpet-2016-billboard-1240Winnie Harlow
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!

naomi cambellNaomi Campbell arrives in the press room at MTV Awards
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 outfitsūüėõ 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.

gettyimages-5975629642015 MTV Video Music Awards - Red Carpet
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 commentsūüėČ

 

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 timeūüėČ

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‚ā¨, 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‚ā¨, 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‚ā¨ 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‚ā¨, 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 squareūüėõ
