A Peplum Top...Need I Say More?

 
 
As I promised yesterday, today’s post will end with a short video. This is a first video I ever edited, if I can even call it that. It’s not professionally looking but just my personal video I made to better explain what I did with yesterday’s blazer. You will notice I was quite nervous talking. Hopefully over time I will get little more accustomed to it. It’s weird because I never get nervous talking in front of people or talking to strangers, but put a camera in my face and I feel the jitters coming on. I survived though J. If you hear some weird sounds throughout, don’t adjust your volume, it’s just my dog running around the house and onto the balcony, irritated by a squirrel on the tree opposite the building J.
About today’s outfit. Well before I say anything about the outfit, let me just say that (I’m sure most of you are on board with this) I really need to see some more sun, and real soon. These pasty white legs of mine don’t sell this outfit as well as tanned legs would J. Now, we really can go back to the outfit. This is one of my favourite tops, a peplum. I looked for a good one for a long time. I found many different ones but the material either wouldn't be the best quality or it would be too soft, so peplum part would just hang on the hips. This one is made of a really firm fabric. The top has a little bit of a corset feel because of the ribbon/belt around the waist. But since my trouble area is always my waist, when in doubt, I wear this top. I just had to cut out the lining because certain body parts J could not fit. I really love peplum tops because they are fun, girly, fashionable and most importantly fit every body type just right. My whole outfit today cost under $100, including the jewelry. What do you think? Ciao!

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. 
Ciao!

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…
