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…

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…
