Navy & Leather

Dress Vero Moda, leather jacket Zara, fur scarf vintage buy, bag/clutch Ebay, heels Spring, earrings Forever 21, ring Aldo

Taking pictures yesterday was impossible due to the weather. It was cold outside but that would not be a problem if it were not for the wind. The winds were blowing from all directions (at least that's how it felt) and it was impossible to keep hair neat or even keep your clothes (scarves, hats) from blowing away. We tried to do it outside, as true warriors, but lost the battle in the matter of seconds. Just check out one of the pictures below. As we got out, all of a sudden flurries started up as well. We had no choice but to shoot these pictures in the back hallways of a building. They came out ok. And before this starts sounding as if you have just tuned into a weather channel blog, let me stop myself.
Last couple of weeks have been a blurr for me. They flew by because I was sooo busy with too many things on the go. And just when I felt like my days are too occupied, I listened to Elaine Lui from Lainey Gossip about her schedule at the blogger conference Spark Sessions over the weekend (you read about this even in yesteryday's post) and realized I should not complain. I also get that same feeling when I talk to my friends with kids. My life is still not that busy after all :). 
Now, finally, back to the outfit. This outfit I wore the first day of the Spark Sessions conference. I never got to snap any picutres of my outfits on the day of for several reasons, but I will reproduce both outfits this week for you to see. This gorgeous dress is from Vero Moda I got from Winners for only $35. As for the jacket, I keep on wearing it even though it is getting too cold for it here in Canada. But I just love it that much that I will sacrifice freezing only to be able to wear it (mom, please don't read this part).
And this fur (lets call it) scarf I purchased in a vintage store in the city. Now, I'm not going to pretend that I am against fur. I'm neither against nor for, kind of confused is more like it. After all, I love eating meat and there is no pretending.  I love the fur but I usually chose to buy it from vintage stores. It is cheaper and it is recycling the fashion. I would buy a new piece too, but I have learned that I will for sure research first where the company buys their fur from before I buy it. Some of these places keep their animals caged in such small cages that they can't even move for the duration of their short lives. And as a dog owner and animal lover, I can't be ok with that kind of treatment.
I will end my post here. I'm starting to notice I am getting chatty today. And as my friends best know, when days like this come around, I can talk, and talk and talk. So ladies, have a wonderful week! Ciao!

Danasnji post, zbog duzine teksta ce biti na zalost samo na engleskom. Nadam se da mi necete zameriti. Sutra nastavljamo opet. 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!
