OOTD: Army of one

Army of one
The reason I ESPECIALLY love this outfit is the fact that the skirt and the top match together so beautifully. They’re both from Net-A-Porter, but I don’t think they were made from the same designer. The shape of the top isn’t my favorite, because I know it wouldn’t look particulary flattering to me personally, but I do love the lines and the colour that it contains. The skirt is probably my favorite item, for what reason? The fact that it looks sporty, yet formal. It’s a crazy combination that many don’t have the courage of using, so I truly appreciate this. I loooove the zipper! It’s such a small detail that doesn’t mean much, yet it’s cool and special. I love the little blue that is underneath the zipper, it’s another cool detail. And it’s also the reason I picked blue high heels. I thought that final decision would make the outfit looks good as a whole.

OOTD: Still waters run deep

Still waters run deep
You guys know I am a huge fan of the black colour and I wear it often in real life, but lately I’ve been falling in love over colourful outfits. I love this particular creation because I didn’t put a stop to the colour. Instead, I used as much of it as possible. The skirt is beautiful and it gives me a kind of an italian vibe. It’s classic! Meanwhile, the jacket has more of an urban, street kind of a vibe. People are normally scared of mixing such styles, but I think that being bold truly pays off. I personaly like those two items together. The top is gorgeous, as well. It’s probably my favorite item in this outfit. I love how simple it is – it’s just white, without any additions. Yet! The construction of the top isn’t simple at all. It’s so classy. Then the high heels … I loooove the softness of these shoes. I also love other soft colours: the blue of the jacket, the colours on the purse … That’s the reason that all of these items can come into a unity: there is softness to them. Of course, the skirt brings contrast, but I love that as well! This has to be one of my favorite outfits I have made, EVER. I’ve just been messing around and creating nothing specific, while this came into one.

OOTD: ANGELS

ANGELS

I have to say I am not a fan of Gigi Hadid (not a hater, either), but I seriously feel like this outfit might be her style. I can picture her in it and I think she would rock it. There’s a ton of different styles here: the shoes and the bag seem quite vintage, the skirt is formal and the top and the hat have a sporty vibe. I know it might sound funny to someone else to style these kind of items together, but I personally love experimenting and doing something original/new, so I didn’t mind doing this.

OOTD: Goodbye angels

Goodbye angels

I have to be honest with you guys and say that this outfit is one of my favorite that I have created, ever. It’s everything I love! I love how the skirt looks so pure and innocent, since it’s white, but the flow gives it a lot of structure. The top is simple, yet it’s very noticeable, because it contradicts the white skirt. The bag is just amazing … Every woman needs a couple of bags in order to compliment the vibe of the outfit even more. Then the jacket? THAT’S my favorite clothing! It gives a playful vibe and it looks kind of … Like jazz? Does that make sense? It’s the most imporant clothing in this outfit. The colours connect every other piece together. It’s the reason that this outfit makes sense as a whole.

Red carpet: Billboard music awards 2017

Truth be told, I was wondering when are we going to get a new red carpet just the other day and I am glad I didn’t have to wait too long. Here’s Billboard music awards’ red carpet! Yay!

rs_634x1024-170521165103-634.Lindsey-Stirling-Billboard-Music-Awards-Las-Vegas.kg.052117lindsey-stirling-2015-billboard-music-awards-02.jpg
My FAVORITE look of the night was this beautiful gown worn by Lindsey Stirling (left). If you compare it with her 2014 look (right), you can see just how much she has upgraded her style! I think that the colour suits her beautifuly, since she is naturally pale, the construction is appealing to the woman’s figure and all in all – she is glowing. Could the designer Ellie Youssef get me this dress, too?!

Nicole Sherzinger … WOW! I think that the biggest applause ever deserves the team behind her make-up and hair, because they’ve made her look absolutely beautiful. Natural, yet popping. To me – Nicole is the definition of a woman that I aspire to be. The dress fits her amazingly and even though you will never hear me admit that I’d be a fan of fringes, I can appreciate the originality behind it.

Ashley Tisdale
is another inspiring woman. I personally love jumpsuits and I think this one suits her nicely, I just wish it had a more certain shape. I’m not a fan of baggy items … But hey, did Ashley ever make a bad fashion move? No way! And her make-up is beautiful, as well.

Here are some more gentle colours! It looks like peach is fashionable again and I love it. It’s not Hannah Lee Fowler’s dress (left) that makes her look so incredibly gorgeous … It’s the WAY she wears it! It’s incredibly important that you do not let a dress overshadow you and she didn’t. She is beautiful. And it suits her skin tone! Lauren Elizabeth (right) didn’t exaggerate with her look, she went with the phrase “less is more” and it was the right choice! I think a long dress wouldn’t have looked half as amazing as this short dress did.

Love me some black choices! Jeannie Mai (left) and Whitney Woerz (right) brought some elegant rock to the red carpet. The cuts of the both clothing are made perfectly. If they looked any different, they wouldn’t have made sense. The little details mean SO MUCH!

Camila Cabello (left) stepped our in a loud red dress, which I love! I remember seeing her mostly in black outfits when she was still in Fifth Harmony, but this truly made her stand out from the crowd. Bravo to the designer Jonathan Simkhai! Every woman needs a little black dress, so Rachel Lindsay (right) delivered. The fit, the length, the collar … Everything looks just right. Not everyone can pull off black, but she did. Amazing!

Now, you guys KNOW I always do this … Who ALMOST made the cut for my favorite red carpet looks, but not quite? Savvy Shields (left) wore a beautiful gown, but the material made it look like a prom dress. I like her hair, I like her make-up … She looks extravagant, yet natural. But … It’s not quite perfect. Olivia Munn’s look (right) isn’t perfect, either. I love the upper part of the dress and I can appreciate the flowers … However, the body under the dress and the see-through part sadly make this look a bit cheap. She is beautiful, don’t get me wrong! But the dress needs fixing.

Here are some other red carpet looks to satisfy your curiosity …

OOTD: Bed of roses

Never enough

It’s always important to have an outfit that makes sense as a whole. While you pick the items that you like individually, you also have to make sure that each and every clothing fits together nicely. I firstly picked the blouse, which is my absolutely favorite item in this set, and then it made sense to work from that. I love the rose detail, but I didn’t want to use a red skirt, because I preferred the idea of making this outfit a bit darker. It made sense, though, to use a skirt that has a detail with roses as well. The colour of both of those items is a a washed out black, so I was searching for a black top that has a similiar shade. To all of the people that aren’t fans of all-black outfits: you’ll never understand the struggle of owning black items that are different shades! It’s so annoying. So I truly couldn’t use a darker black.  And in the end, I was searching for red high heels. I wanted matte heels, but these ones aren’t too shiny, so I made it work. When the outfit was put together, I found myself being satisfied with the result! We definitely have to be careful not to exaggarate with the rose detail, but I think that’s the main idea of this outfit, so I had to use it! 🙂

I love the rock vibe that this outfit has, I always prefer that over a girly vibe. Just because I personally think I wear that better.

By the way! I ALMOST made an affordable outfit! Check the details below:

Playing with styling: Easy to see (colour POP)

I’ve found a new top that I absolutely love and because it’s so playful and elegant, I wanted to use it next to colourful and easygoing items. It was hard to only make one outfit, though, so I decided to create two of them!

Celozaslonski zajem 6. 05. 2017 142625.bmpI know that blouses are usually used as shirts, not as “coats”. However, since it has gotten a bit warmer outside, I started using them over the tops and I truly love the outcome. Blouses have this great advantage that they’re usually not too baggy, so they fit nicely next to your figure. If we use them over tops, we therefore do not hide the beautiful shape, we highlight it even more. Besides, the weather can get quite crazy in May … It’s cold in the morning, but it’s warm in the evening. If we use a combination like this, we are ready for both of the weathers. We won’t feel either hot or cold and we’ll look fabulous along the way! I love the skirt in this outfit, because it brings energy and youth to it. Because of the blouse, I could have easily used a white/dark blue skirt, but I truly didn’t want to be so boring and safe. The pop of colour is the thing that this outfit needed, in my opinion!

Celozaslonski zajem 6. 05. 2017 142619.bmpEven though I like the first outfit, I definitely prefer this second one, because the top stands out more than it did in the first set. Here you can see just how playful and awesome it is. I love the fact that it’s a one-shoulder kind of a top and I also love the way the materials flow one over another. I feel as though the skirt and the high heels compliment each other beautifully, because they both have that kind of a vintage feeling while being modern, as well. There is nothing badly put on this skirt! The shape is great, so is the colour. The shoes didn’t have to be designer shoes, but I was thrilled to have a yellow detail on them, so I had to pick them when I saw the mark. I could just see myself rocking this outfit. I think it would give a lot of confidence to any woman.
