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…

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

Celebrating 30s is Not That Hard

As promised, I’m following up with one more outfit post this week. One thing I notice is that one of the  posts on my blog keeps getting the most view, even 3 years after it was posted. That was a post on turning 30, called Joining the 30s club. It seems to be a topic of interest for many women, most likely those about to turn 30. At the time it seemed like a bit deal for me too, but today, as I’ve turned 33, I’m very much comfortable with my age. 30s used to be a scary thought for me but now, I embrace them and feel more comfortable & happy in my skin then I ever have.
Today I’m sharing an outfit I wore for my birthday dinner (which was almost a month ago). I got this dress in a vintage store for a whapping $10. It was brand new. Oh how I love these fun cheap finds! The print reminded me of a cherry print form Dolce&Gabbana from a few seasons ago, but I also loved the style of the dress. It seems much shorter in these pictures then it actually is. For some reason my legs lo…

Over-sized Sleeves, Cozy Zara Sweater & Leather Outfit

Boots Aldo, skirt New Yorker, sweater Zara, bag Chanel, earrings vintage
Gotta love Zara! Gotta love this sweater! It was love at first sight (I know, I know I say that a lot). If you love it too, you should be able to still find it in the store. I love the oversized sleeves in particular. Anyone else crazy about this trend?  My brain is a little fried this week do I won't talk much. Too much to do, too little time before my trip to Boston this weekend. So I am leaving you with this quick post and hope you enjoy the pictures and the outfit.
Ciao!
