Lets talk about fakes. Fake clothing items and accessories, to be exact. Or knock-offs, however you like to call them. I will be honest I am not a fan at all. Fake logos are my big pet peeve. But we do see nowadays a lot of items on a lower budget that resemble some higher end ones. I am not talking just about teenage discount stores but even stores such as Danier, Coach, Michael Kors, have bags that resemble some much more expensive models. And I am perfectly fine with that. To me, that is paying a compliment to the original design. But buying bags that actually say Louis Vuitton, Celine or any other name, but are not actually a real deal, that is a big no no for me. Usually, knock-offs are of bad quality as well so it can be a waste of money. But with that said, I am realizing that I will sound like a hypocrite today. I bought these replicas of Valentino shoes on Ebay, and I cannot say that I am ashamed at all. I have been lusting over them for as long as they have been out. I love the heeled ones too, but I would not buy the knock-off of those for some reason. Probably because the arch and heel are not well made. But these, I had to have. I had placed them in my wish list and kept going back to them every day, hoping that I will change my mind. But after 7 days my desire had not gone away, so I clicked that Buy button. And they were only $25! Who could resist. Today's summary outfit I wore last night for a walk around Toronto's water front. What a beautiful night it was. I threw in a few IPhone pictures a friend of mine took of me posing for my husband, who is my official photographer. It found these pictures interesting so I wanted to include a few in today's post. Ciao!

Danas pricamo o imitacijama ili kopijama originalnih dizajnerskih modela, bilo odece ili aksesoara. Prvo da kazem da sam ja (uglavnom) veliki protivnik. Imitacije, pogotovo tasni koje nose logo na sebi, meni daju vrlo jeftin izlged outfitu. Pogotovo u danasnje vreme, kada mozete naci tasne ili cipele, koje su inspirisane skupim dizajnima ali su mnogo pristupacnije budzetu jedne normalne osobe. I uglavnom su daleko boljeg kvaliteta. Ako zaista zelite neku dizajnersku tasnu, onda vam savetujem da stedite malo po malo. Ja sam moju prvu Louis Vuitton tasnu kupila tek nakon 5 godina prizeljkivanja. Kao student nisam mogla da priustim nesto tako skupo (iako je moj model jedan od jeftinijih, ali meni najdrazi). Zatim kada sam pocela da radim i da stvaram zivot za sebe, nisam mogla samoj sebi da obrazlozim zasto je jedna tasna vaznija nego imati kauc u kuci, hehee. Ali sam onda odlucila da ostavaljam pare sa strane, i malo po malo skupila dovoljno da mogu da je kupim. Utoliko mi je bila draza nego ista drugo sto sam kupila do tad. Ali gledajte da odaberete model koji cete moci nositi jos dugi niz godina, a ne nesto sto je prolazno. I nakon sto sam sve ovo napisala, posle danasnjeg posta cete misliti da sam licemer. Cipele koje danas nosim su imitacija Valentino cipela koje prizeljkujem cini mi se od kada su tek izasle. Ali nisam planirala da ih kupim, jer mi nisu prve na mojoj dugoj listi zelja, a i nekako bi za mene bilo cudno da platim tolike pare za ravne cipele. Ove sam pronasla na Ebay-u i stavila sam ih u svoju korpu sa ostalim stvarima koje prizeljkujem. Svaki dan sam se vracala da ih vidim, u nadi da cu promeniti misljenje. Ali nakon sedam dana, zelja da ih imam nije prosla, i na kraju sam kliknula na Kupiti dugme. Ali kako sam i mogla da im odolim? Pogotovo, jos i po ceni od $25. Danasnji letnji outfit sam nosila sinoc za setnju uz luku Toronta. Bilo je savrseno vece za to. A ubacila sam i par slika koje je moja drugarica uslikala Iphonom, pa mozete videti razliku u kvalitu slike. Ali meni su bile interesantne jer ih je slikala dok sam ja pozirala za mog glavnog fotografa (mog muza) hehe. 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 MontrĂ©al. 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!
