A Red Pencil

 
 Skirt Jacobs, heels Forever 21, shirt TNA (Aritzia), sunglasses Prada, gloves Ebay, bag Louis Vuitton, belt Ardene, watch unknown
 
 

Last outfit for the week, to close off our mid-century skirt fall trend, is a pencil skirt which also became popular in the mid-40s. This may be my favourite style. Not necessarily the best fitting one for my boyish body shape, but my favourite. I own quite a few different designs, colours and materials. Every girl should have at least couple of pencil skirts in their closet; one classic black and one bright hued one. Red seems to be a great choice. It is acceptable in an office environment but is sexy enough to wear out as well. There is a style of a pencil skirt that can be found for every body shape, so make sure you find yourself one. If you are on a heavier side, choose one with thinker, better quality material. Thin ones usually show off every imperfection, and you want to feel great wearing a pencil skirt and not worry about how it looks on you. Even if you are very slim, thicker material will add volume to your body and therefore create more curves. If you are blessed with curves and hips this is a must style for you. I opt for high waist ones that go up to the narrowest area of my mid-section in order to create an hourglass silhouette. I also often wear a slim belt around it to accentuate the waist even more. And lets not forget I have a great tailor near my house. Not everything can fit perfectly off the rack, so do yourself a favour and find a great tailor! Stay tuned for next week to see what I have prepared for you. Ciao!
Ovu sedmicu posvecenu jesenjem trendu suknji i haljina iz sredine proslog veka, zavrsavamo sa jednom pencil suknjom. Pencil suknje su takodje postale popularne sredinom 40tih godina. Ovo je definitivno moj omiljeni model. Nije bas najbolji za moj oblik tela, ali definitivno moj omiljeni. U mom ormaru se krije gomila razlicitih boja, dezena i materijala. Svaka zena treba da ima u svom ormaru bar dve pencil suknje; jednu klasicnu crnu i jednu u jarkoj boji. Crvena je dobar izbor jer je prihvatljiva i za kancelariju ali je dovoljno sexy i za izlazak. Bez obzira na vas oblik tela, postoje razliciti modeli, zato ne odustajte nego se bacite i potragu vase savrsene pencil suknje. Ja nosim iskljucivo pencil suknje visokog struka, i uz tanak kais, dajem iluziju oblina. Takodje imam snajderku blizu mene koju koristim da nekada malo popravi po neki odevni komad koji mi mozda ne stoji savrseno odmah iz prodavnice.  Ovo je poslednji outfit za ovu sedmicu, ali ne zaboravite da me pratite open od nedelje i da vidite sta sam pripremila za vas. Cao!

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…
