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…

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…
