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…

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…
