Holiday Dress Ideas

Hello ladies, I chose today to do a different kind of post. By talking to a lot of females, I know that a lot of you hate shopping for holiday dresses. How many of you actually shop for them months in advance? Probably only a few. Same as most people do with Christmas gifts, we tend to leave it for the last minute. And I agree, it may not be the best time to shop for that holiday dress in July. Who wants to be thinking about winter when it's hot outside? But then the holiday season sneaks upon us and our schedules get crazy busy. The malls become hectic and if you want to avoid that chaos, what are you left with but to shop online? I know that many people don't like shopping online (unlike me hehe). It may also be a little late to order that dress now, unless you are prepared to pay extra for express shipping. How about browsing your favourite stores online and picking what you like from the comfort of you house? Then go to the store and try those pieces only. Even better, obtain the item number or name and call head, find out if they carry the dress in your size. Avoid unnecessary driving in these poor weather conditions. I'm sure you can think of better things to do with your day then be stuck in traffic. 

Well today I did some browsing for you and picked a few items to give you some ideas. From girly to edgy, from body hugging to loose. Now you also know that I buy clothing that will give me a lot of wear out of it? As well as pieces that can go from casual to glam? The pieces I picked today therefore are just that. They can be made casual with a nice warm sweater, blazer or a denim jacket. So you can wear them to a party or on a casual weekend outing. Add black tights in the winter or go bare legged in the summer. Want to make any of the dresses more edgy? Add a cool biker leather jacket, biker boots or a belt with some studs or spikes. 


Do you love the colour Red? Chose this gorgeous number with ruffled hem or surprise everyone and opt for this amazing scarlet playsuit.  (Zara $59.90 & Top Shop $88)

If your Go To dress is always LBD, how about experimenting a little? Add some edge to you look by choosing this all leather look or add an element of surprise with a deep V-back line (Top Shop $100 & Zara $79.90)

Winter white is all the rage this winter. Choose this gorgeous a-line frock or this soft embellished piece. You won't even need any jewelry for the latter one except maybe a nice bracelet (Both Forever 21 $41.80 & $45.80)

If you are a girly girl, then these will be just perfect. A-line dress with a cut out on the back which can be toughened up with a biker jacket in the spring/fall, or this blush pink lace dress. Add a spike belt and some black tights, and you go from girly to chic (Both from Forever 21 & both $35.80) 

 Do you love going all out for the holidays? Then choose a lace inspired piece, some sequins or a little bit of both. All three can be made casual with a boyfriend blazer or a warm sweater/cardigan. In the summer wear a white T-shirt and a denim jacket for a cool and chic look. (H&M $34.95, $Zara $99 & Forever 21 $45.80)

And if you want drama in your look? Go for these body hugging pieces: add a fun and bright print or opt for this maxi sheer number. Keep the jewelry minimal, you don't want it to compete with the dress (Top Shop $66 & H&M $79.95) 


 There is a litte bit for everyone's taste and budget. Let me know which one you love the most. 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…

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…

What to do When Travelling Western Serbia (& my Outfits)

If you read my lastpost, you know I had been travelling Western Serbia and as promised, I’m sharing few more photos and things to do here. This region doesn’t have big cities and is best known for it’s nature. Besides visiting Drvengrad, here are few more things you can do here:
1.About a 10-minute walk from Drvengrad which you saw in the last post, you can find one of the oldest moveable railway museums in Europe. You can hope aboard a vintage train from the early 1920s and ride in it through one of the most beautiful region of this country. You will love the experience of being on the train but the scenery will leave you speechless and at peace. Train runs twice a day so make sure to check the schedule first. They even offer logging so you can stay in one of their apartments. There are 3 stray dogs here but they are so docile and welcome you as you come in. Consider them to be your hosts :) Ciro Rail Station Museum
2.Second activity you can do here, and I’m sure you will enjoy thoro…

Traveling Western Serbia & Finding Peace, Quiet & Beauty

Jeans Topshop, slides H&M, bag Louis Vuitton, lipstick Mac All Fired Up
Hello lovelies! It’s been a long time since I wrote anything on the blog. It’s been crazy busy time for me for many reasons. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been in Eastern Europe, more precisely in Serbia for the last couple of weeks. Here’s a brief rundown. Last year has been one of the business periods of my life and I’ve been under quite a bit of stress. Due to some personal reasons which unfortunately I cannot share here, I’ve had to take some time off. I will be here in Europe over the next few months so I’m very excited about this trip. It was very hard for me to make this decision. Like most of us, taking such a huge step can cause some fear and anxiousness. But what’s that saying? Life begins on the other side of fear, right? Hopefully you will continue following me on this new journey. So first thing I wanted to do when I landed here was go to Western Serbia. There were a few reaso…
