And A New Star Is Born

 As promised on Friday in my post or on the Facebook page, I am introducing to you a new star of this blog, Asos belt you see in the pictures. I assure you it will appear on this blog in many, many post to come. I received this amazing belt from Asos (just under $22 with free shipping) on Thursday night and absolutely had to wear it the next day, no question about it (I also wore it out Saturday night with another outfit). I had a business lunch on Friday and this was my version of a business outfit. Little bit of bright colour to welcome the nice weather, nude pumps and of course, the amazing belt to give it some edge and very minimal jewellery, as the outfit was loud enough on its own. I had a toned down black purse but as I am organizing pictures for this post, I realize that I did not take any pictures with it. Oh well this will do this time J.
Speaking of this belt, I saw it quite some time ago somewhere, can’t quite recall where and found a link to Asos. It was however sold out. I searched everywhere. There are few versions on Ebay but they didn’t appear to be of good quality. I had given up on it eventually, but then I went shopping for a wedding dress (one of many weddings I have this year) and the store carried this belt (minus the spikes), but the price tag was $176. As much as I loved it, I could not justify paying more for the belt then the dress. Granted, the one in the store was leather and this one is not. I personally prefer real leather because pleather (or whatever else name you prefer for it) sometimes looks too cheap or threads get loose too quickly, but I guarantee that this one is really well made.  After the shopping, I checked Asos again and found it. I guess it was just meant to be J. What do you think, was this a good way to save a few $$? 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. 

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…
