15 Years Anniversary

Today is a 15 years anniversary since the first Sex and the City episode aired. I was way too young when it aired and did not watch the show at its prime, but I got hooked much later. I have a collection of all episodes and both movies. I watch them often when I’m sick or on those cold rainy fall days. They go very well with a nice glass of wine. So, in honour of that…. today’s outfit…..well…it has no relation to it whatsoeverJ. I just wanted to share a fun fact J. I know the show and both movies have many cheesy lines and they are unrealistic, but they are fun and relaxing. And I do have to say though, that SATC is one of those shows that has left a strong mark on the world of fashion and is somewhat to blame for mine and other women’s shoe obsession. It also gave many women the courage to experiment a little more with their clothes and not be afraid to combine the unimaginable. 
What I love about fashion today is that almost anything goes. You are free to do what you please. Don’t get me wrong I still think certain rules should apply and should never, ever, ever be forgotten: no white socks on black shoes (of any kind), no sports socks on dress shoes, no mullets , your private body parts should stay covered – they are not an accessory, etc. This freedom, no longer dictated by rigid rules, allows for an absolute expression of who you are through clothes. Now don’t take me for a rebel, I am so far from one. I just like being free to wear what I want and how I want it: wear a belt tied on my back, combine red and pink (which growing up was a major no-no to the point that there is even a short little poem made up to sing in order to embarrass some poor girl who chose to wear that combination – bullying 101 it seems now), not match my shoes to my belt or my purse, and so on. You are now your own blank canvas to paint on it what you wish. So take risks! Play with it and enjoy! Now, as we were leaving the house to take these pictures, my husband looked at me and said: “Are you sure you are wearing the right outfit? You sure your pants and boots go together?”  I just laughed at him and told him in my eyes, they do. He is still, after all these years, getting used to my choices J. What do you think? Ciao!
PS. (not sure if anyone writes PS any more, but regardless) Today is one of those gloomy and rainy cold days, so maybe I’ll do what I usually do. Put on some Sex and the City episodes and relax with a glass of wine. Cheers!

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

How to Stay Warm in the Tricky Spring Weather

Jeans Zara, boots Forever 21, blouse Forever 21, jacket Mango (old), scarf Aldo, sunnies Ray-Ban, bag Louis Vuitton (with my own chain strap), gloves H&M
As the sun is out again and the weather doesn't require thick layers of clothing, I get to get out more out and about the city. The spring is the time when I walk the most, sometimes for hours. It also helps with the few winter pounds heheh. Though long walks require comfort, I still like to wear a cute little outfit. You may think how are heeled boots comfortable, but to be honest, I get more easily tired walking in flats then in heels. Granted, for these long walks I opt for a more chunky heel and a shoe with a strong foot support, rather then a thin stiletto heel. 
I recently purchased these Forever 21 booties and decided they were going to be the piece around which the outfit is built. With me, the outfit builders are usually the shoes haha. And though it was a nice spring day, layers were still a must. I layered a soft t…

Instagram Roundup

I haven't posted much lately and now I'm on vacation for another week or so, so no new posts are expected before I return. I wanted however to share with you a few of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account. Few more pictures have been posted since but you will have to go to my Instagram account to see more. 

The Best Blazer. Period.

Blazer Premonition (FigJam.To), dress White by Vera Wang, sandals (Winners), belt Express
Today's outfit was not intended to be shared on the blog, but rather just on my Instagram. It was shot (you can see the quality of the pictures) with a phone camera in a prompt 2 minute photo shoot, as I was running late for a weeding. But I was soooooo excited by this blazer that I had to share it here as well. I had too many pictures that I liked and I could not show them all on Instagram, otherwise people would un-follow me for spamming them hahahaha. 
I got this blazer delivered this same day and it fit perfectly with the dress I had chosen to wear to the event. It is from a website called FigJam.To which specializes in Australian designers. I took one look at this gorgeous piece and I HAD to have it. How amazing is the detailing on the back? Perfect to show off your dress...or your derrier when you pair it with some tight jeans....It's beautifully tailored. A perfect boyfriend blaze…
