Fashion bloggers are considered (by many) to be a connection between the fashion runways and regular people. They are considered to translate current trends into a style that is more accessible and easier to understand to an everyday person. They may be an old news and source inspiration to many women and men out there, but there are also many people who are just getting around to following bloggers and using them as source of inspiration for what to wear. One comment that I often hear is that it’s hard to keep up with a blogger and buy everything they wear. Cost adds up very quickly. But one thing I love about my favorite fashion bloggers is the ability to re-mix their wardrobe time and time again, and not just show off new items. I personally get inspired by many things when it comes to putting together an outfit: from other bloggers, magazines, house and decorating magazines, or just some random pictures, things I see on the street, architecture or nature. Inspiration does not mean you copy an exact look. It is supposed to give you an idea about how to work with what you have in your closet and make a similar outfit. For me, sometimes, an outfit that I see on another blogger may inspire me for its exact items of clothing, but other times, it may be just the combination of colors in the outfit, mix of prints, idea of mixing specific pieces of clothing together, that maybe I had not thought about. Some of my favorite bloggers are very tall, and yet I am not. Some have a very different body shape than me so I cannot copy their outfit completely. I have to always keep in mind my body shape, skin colour, hair colour, life style, etc to ensure I am comfortable in what I am wearing. If it does not suit my body, I will not be able to carry it out. The outfit may be wearing me or I may look very uncomfortable in it.
So this week, I thought I would give you couple of examples of outfits that inspired me and how I translated them into my style and used existing pieces in my wardrobe to create them.
Today’s outfit inspiration is from a picture of a partial outfit I saw on Instagram from a very famous blogger Sincerely, Jules. What I loved about it is the idea embroidered clutch and white pheasant top.   I also loved the idea of that world traveler style mixed with my favorite summer item, cut-off denim shorts. I did not want to go searching for a similar shirt, when I already owned a dress that had the same feel to it. You may have already seen me wear it in this SashaDoll Fashion Closet post. So I just added a little boho style belt to cinch in the waist and shorten the length of the dress, and voila, a shirt. I also already own an embroidered bag, which I used before as a clutch as well. I just fold it in half and tuck the handles inside. And  , who doesn't own a pair of denim shorts, right?

So below is a picture of my inspiration and the outfit I created from it. Hopefully, for those of you who find it hard to translate outfits of your favorite bloggers into what fits you best, this little article will help. I will have one more post this week to show you a different way to interpreting an inspiration. 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…
