OOTD: Heaven

Heaven

This is one of the first sets that I didn’t struggle creating! I am almost always searching for perfect colour combinations, accessories, the right shoes … This time I had luck to stumble upon a couple of items that I loved individually and that worked well together, as well! I really like the top because of its asymetrical lines, the countless shades of the colour blue and all of the patterns that it includes. It’s so interesting, a lot is going on, but it’s still modern and fabulous. I also like the drapping of the skirt. It could have been more elegant if it was tighter, but I was going for a comfortable and easier look this time, so the skirt suits that idea. The high heels are my favorite yet. They suit the idea of a blue look, but the soft and bright shade of the blue draws the attention.

I feel as if we don’t need any accessories with this – maybe an easygoing hat for a walk outside or couple of rings – it depends what’s your style. I wouldn’t add a necklace, because I think the top is interesting on itsown.

The items of this outfit are pretty expensive, but I have added details of everything I’ve used down below. Maybe you’d like to purchase something or at least satisfy your curiosity.

Friday’s Five Favorites

Hello guys! Are you ready for the first official “Friday’s five favorites”? Here we go!
(Just a reminder that these items do not work together as an outfit, you can find my previous outfits on the blog. I have never used these items before and I love them individually, that’s why I’ve decided to present them individually as well.)

Joseph Fran had a very original idea to create a shirt-inspired skirt. Wearing a jumper around a skirt is the new trend, but he combined that into a one simple item. It has been challenging for me to find a way to style this skirt with a proper top, as it surprisingly has both a sporty and an elegant vibe … However, just as it is challenging, it is also something special.

Celozaslonski zajem 28.7.2016 165541.bmpAnother trend is wearing tops with bare shoulders. The top itself might be a bit too short, but that’s not an issue if we style it properly. First option is to combine it with cropped trousers and high heels, that’s incredibly popular. However, this item isn’t too elegant, so we could just as easily style it with a flowy long skirt. It all depends what your style is. Either way, I love the girliness and simpleness of this top.

Celozaslonski zajem 28.7.2016 165442.bmpIt’s summer in my city, but I am getting nostalgic. I love wearing flowy and long coats, I feel extra fashionable in them! With summer, clothes feel sticky and annoying – I don’t feel either fashionable or confident. This coat from Bruce by Bruce Oldfield therefore deserves a shoutout in this post. I love the pattern, the length … And the fact that there are no buttons. I prefer wearing opened jackets and coats than I do closed.

Celozaslonski zajem 28.7.2016 165619.bmpJust the other day, I was playing around and searching for new items on Polyvore and I found these Love Mochino Heart flats. At first, I wished these shoes were in fact high heels, because I think they’d look even more fashionable! Then I remembered sometimes flats sound like the perfect choice, yet we still want to feel confident and beautiful. The selections of flats are rather sad, the shoes hardly ever look stylish, but these definitely don’t lack fashion! I love the heart element, because it can brighten up an all-black outfit. I also like the zipper on the sides. Even though it has no function what-so-ever, it’s a beautiful addition.

Celozaslonski zajem 28.7.2016 165510.bmpThe last item I want to give a shout-out to is this beautiful Athens skirt. I love everything about it – the black lines that are asymetric and therefore interesting, the colour of the pink and the beautiful artsy rose on the side. Because of its colour palette, we can style it next to almost any colour – black, white, blue, pink … And the beauty of this is that the top and the shoes can be simple, because the skirt definitely isn’t.

That’s all! If you’d like to see styling choices with these items, let me know. If you want to buy any of the items, also let me know. Also, do not hesitate to comment down below which item is your favorite.

Don’t forget – 2016 Teen Choice Awards are happening 31st July! For everyone who is nostalgic, you can check out my 2015 Teen Choice Awards’ favorite looks over here. I will, of course, be publishing a post of 2016’s red carpet looks shortly after the event, so keep your eyes peeled! 🙂
Till next time!

Tropical Tuesday

Hello everyone! It’s been a while. I’ve had a busy couple of days (of relaxing …), but I’m back with some new (hopefully not disappointing) sets.

Celozaslonski zajem 26.7.2016 170712.bmpMy favorite item of this first set is the top, which might resemble a more comfortable bra or something like that, but it feels refreshing. We don’t have to wear long and baggy items all the time. I combined it with an all-white outfit that seemed appropriate. Just because the top itself has that tropical vibe, I’ve decided not to include any toughness by matching it with a black colour. I also love the shoes in this combination! I think the outfit would have been better if we included some blue colour that is included in the shoes, but everything still matches.

Celozaslonski zajem 26.7.2016 173121.bmpIf you’d like to keep the tropical vibe, but you want a more sophisticated look, maybe this outfit is more for you. These kind of pants have become incredibly popular and women love combining them for all kind of purposes. They are a bit shorter; they show off your ankles, but they are high fashioned. To keep the essence of the tropic vibe, maybe I should have picked white high heels, but we know the black high heels are known as the most sophisticated, that’s why I picked those.

Celozaslonski zajem 26.7.2016 170703.bmp

Here is another tropical set! I’ve had trouble deciding which top should I choose to combine with the skirt – at first I added a gentle pink one, then a gentle blue one … I think both of those could suit the skirt just fine, but the colour of a washed-out orange is found in the skirt, so the top completes it perfectly. I am not obsessed with the purse (it seems too sophisticated for the tropical vibe) or with the hat (because it withdraws the freedom of the outfit), but it’s gentle and white and … Why not?
How to get this set to a more high fashioned level? You could do the same thing we did with the previous set. Get a pair of pants and a pair of sophisticated high heels and add this top. If it gets colder, use a white blazer, too. You suddenly look less relaxed and more … Ready for business!

How often do you wear tropical patterns and what do you think of these sets? Let me know in the comments!

Also, I’ve decided I will be adding a “Friday favorite” column. I am excited about that. I’m also excited because I bought my very first pencil skirt just a couple of days ago. I already had a chance to wear it – it’s beautiful, comfortable … I look fit in it and I feel gorgeous and confident. Ladies … If you don’t own a pencil skirt, it’s about time, trust me.
Till next time!

Playing with styling: Chariot

Before you publish a set, you want it to be perfect … Or at least AS perfect as it can be. That’s why I try multiple of choices. Sometimes the first choice works and I am pleased with whatever I created and sometimes it takes me longer to succeed. This time, I was pleased with the first choice, but I was curious what are other ways to style some of the items.

Celozaslonski zajem 7.7.2016 111324.bmpThe top is one of my favorite items I’ve used recently. I like the girliness of it, yet the bare shoulders make you look sexy. It’s a vintage, but timeless item. You definitely have to style it with a high-waisted item, therefore I used the white skirt that matches the dots of the top. I’ve actually thought about using pants, but they’re extremely formal and draw out the fun that the skirt draws in. Using flat shoes would probably be a bit more logical, but I wanted the outfit to be a bit more fashionable and not just wearable for walks with your dog. I added the hat for one reason – I love hats and I think it suits the outfit! 😀

Celozaslonski zajem 7.7.2016 111418.bmpAnd here is another way you can style the top (and the shoes). If you don’t consider yourself to be overly girly and skirts aren’t your favorite thing on the Earth, you can use the jeans. The outfit is not as bright, but it still doesn’t resemble the hard, rock look. If it wasn’t for the shoes, this is the kind of an outfit you can wear every day to school or a walk outside. The shoes truly bring this outfit to a more fashionable level. And I haven’t mentioned yet that I in fact love them. I think they’re beautiful, I love the shine of the red colour that just gets your attention.

Which set do you like better, why and would you consider wearing either of these sets? Let me know in the comments! 

Here I go again (WHITESNAKE reference)

Here I go againA lot of time has passed since I posted an all-black outfit, so … Here I go again 😛
Black is an insanely elegant colour, it makes you look sophisticated and thin, therefore using baggy black items is almost a waste of this awesome colour. I’ve decided to pair up the black and the silver. I would definitely wear something like this to a more elegant party, where everybody is trying to look good. My favorite item is the skirt. I love how it brings this outfit some life to it, yet it’s calm and steady. I love the crystal detail. You’ll look and feel rich in something like this.

The top might be a bit too short in a combination with the skirt, because the skirt doesn’t seem to be high waisted. But that is easily fixed with a coat that you can wear to cover this up. If you are really tall and/or you don’t feel comfortable in this, you can always change the outfit.
The heels bought me over, too. The leather gives them a feeling of the matte black colour that makes you look even more badass.

If you want to conquer a fancy party, this is the best way to do it.

Tunnel vision
Just the other day I created a set I absolutely love, so I decided I have to publish it over here for you guys to see! It’s not the most complicated outfit ever – it’s not hard to combine the items and it doesn’t include much elements, anyway. However, I love putting black items together with more black items and I absolutely adore the skirt and the top. The top is beautiful, because it’s another “bare shoulder” item. To cover that up a little bit, I added a silky scarf. I love the gentle colour of blue, so I’ve decided to use the simple shade of the high heels. I think the outfit would be boring if the shoes were black as well. This way, it’s a boost to the outfit and it shows us that we don’t have to exaggarate to shine through. There isn’t much colour in this set, but the little that there is – it’s definitely noticeable.

I will try to find cheaper items to use in my sets next time. It’s not an impossible thing to do – far from it, I just normally don’t pay attention to the prices. I don’t intend on buying the outfits I create, that’s why I go all in.Do you like this outfit? Let me know in the comments!

NEW column! Post number 1 – TOP dresses

I’ve been searching ideas for a new column on this blog, since I only write about outfits and red carpet choices. The thing about Polyvore is that I find lots of clothing pieces that I would eventually like to use in sets, but they don’t get the justice, because I lack imagination at that time. I feel guilty for not using those items, because I like them so much, but pairing them up is in fact difficult.

I’ve therefore decided I’d like you guys to see the items I don’t use in my sets, yet equally like as much as the items I have used.

I am starting this column with dresses – the ones I could style, but didn’t want to, because I felt as if they need an individual representation 😛

Celozaslonski zajem 6.7.2016 164908.bmp.jpgI’m starting off with the Alexander McQueen Off-the-shoulder knitted mini dress. You probably know by now that I am not the biggest fan of bright colours, but my taste changes with summer. I prefer wearing yellow, white, gentle blue – than I do black. I like the fact that this dress is off-the-shoulder, because I actually think a woman’s figure looks better with that addition. Plus, we can easily style a beautiful necklace with it without being “too much”.

Celozaslonski zajem 6.7.2016 165303.bmp
The next item is this hilariously cheap Choies skater dress. It costs ONLY 22€! It’s another gentle colour that we deserve to purchase for summer. I have a small problem with the – how do I call it … – boob part? 😛 I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing a cleavage like that. But it’s still so simple and beautiful, I adore it.

Celozaslonski zajem 6.7.2016 170118.bmpPlease don’t say I am a hypocrite! I really don’t like wearing black dresses in the summer (even though I own some). I probably wouldn’t wear the Rosetta Getty dress, anyway. However, it’s absolutely gorgeous.  And hey, I’ve said it! I am definitely a fan of the off-the-shoulder trend. Any woman would look fantastic in this dress. It shapes your figure, but the black colour still keeps you thin. I love it, I love it, I love it.

Celozaslonski zajem 6.7.2016 170718.bmp.jpgAlright, now listen up! I’ve got your back, babes. This SheIn dress currently costs only 19€! It’s been reduced from 30€. It reminds me of the fashion in Italy. It’s romantic, easy going, simple and yet somehow elegant. It’s another off-the-shoulder dress (and I know, I better keep my obsession down), but I can’t help myself.

There you go. That’s been 4 dresses in one post. Which dress is your favorite and would you consider purchasing any of them? If you wrote a column like this, which dresses would you include? Let me know in the comments!
