Making A Statement

Jeans Fornarina, blazer Zara, ankle boots Aldo, tshirt unknown, clutch Indigo, necklace unknown Ebay, watch Michael Kors, chain ring H&M, blue/gold ring Ebay

Good morning lovelies! It is Thursday and this is my last post for the week. I chose to leave this outfit as the last one for the week as it can work very well for going out. It's pretty simple: blazer, t-shirt and jeans, but instead of going with skinny or boot cut jeans, I chose my Fornarina slouchy ones. As I cannot wear pumps in this cold, these amazing Aldo ankle boots work perfectly. They elongate my leg due to the zipper detailing in front. Now for the necklace, I chose this colourful Ebay treasure. I am addicted to Ebay. I love finding a deal and I can browse for hours. I actually have to control myself when I do. I also get really excited finding unexpected items at unexpected places. Do I need to explain how excited I was when I found this gorgeous scarlet red clutch in Indigo/Chapters? People go to buy books there, what do I do? I buy fashion accessories, hahaha. This clutch is part of their Valentines merchandise but will love it all year round. Happy Weekend ladies! Ciao!

Dobro jutro drage dame! Cetvrtak je i sa tim i poslednji post ove sedmice. Ovaj outfit sam ostavila za danas iz razloga sto moze biti odlican i za izlazak u grad ovog vikenda. Prilicno je jednostavan: sako, majica i farmerke, ali umesto klasicnih ili uskih farmerki, probrala sam ovaj malo opusteniji stil iz Fornarine. I s obzirom da zbog hladnoce ne mogu da nosim salonke, ove prelepe cizmice iz Alda su savrsene takodje. Detalj napred i spicasti vrh izduzuju moje noge. Ogrlica je sa Ebay-a o kojem sam ja inace zavisna, kako mi se cini. U stanju sam da satima razgledam sve i svasta, a moram se i kontrolisati da ne kupujem svakakve gluposti. Takodje se jako uzbudim kada pronadjem neocekivani detalj na neocekivanom mestu. Nije ni potrebno da vam objasnjavam koliko sam se obradovala kada sam ugledala ovu prelepu crvenu tasnu u knjizari Indigo/Chapters. Normalni ljudi tamo kupuju knjige, a ja tasnice, hahah. Srecan vikend devojke! Cao!

You Only Miss The Sun When It Starts To Snow

Jacket Esprit, sweater H&M, jeans Urban Behavior (old), boots Aldo, scarf & hat unknown, necklace Ebay, bag Louis Vuitton, rings Forever 21 & Ebay, gloves Aldo (last year)

When winter white was presented on all the runways last spring, as the trend to look for in F/W 2013, were you excited? I certainly was. That is until the winter really came, along with the cold, as well as its dirty and wet streets. Only then do you start to realize white can be pretty hard to pull off. Few years ago I bought a gorgeous white coat but after the first winter I got rid of it because white gets dirty very easily, especially in the winter. It felt like I had to dry clean it every 2 weeks to keep it crisp white. And that can get pretty costly. I swore never to buy one again. Then I came across this beautiful warm jacket on sale at Esprit for $60 and had to buy it. Jackets are easier to care for. You can just throw it into a washer and you're done. So today, I am showing off my version of winter white trend, easily wearable for us regular folks in really cold climates. You can replace the high heel ankle boots for any other pair of boots you wear in this cold, be it Uggs, Sorels, or any other kind. Would you wear this outfit this winter? Ciao!
Kada je prosle godine predstavljen trend belog za jesen/simu 2013, da li ste se vi obradovali? Ja definitivno jesa. To jeste dok prava zima nije ustvari pristigla, zajednom sa ledenim temperaturama, kao i mokrim i prljavim ulicama. Tek onda covek pocinje da shvata da belo i nije tako prakticno za zimu. Pre nekoliko godina sam bila kupila beli kaput koji sam naprosto obozavala. Ali posto se prljao jako brzo, previse para sam potrosila na hemijsko ciscenje, cini mi se svake dve sedmice. Cim je zima prosla, kaputa sam se resila i zaklela se da ga vise nikada necu kupiti. Ali onda sam naletela na ovu jaknu u Esprit na snizenju za $60 i morala da je kupim. Jakne su inace mnogo lakse za odrzavanje jer ih vi mozete oprati u masini i problem resen. Danas moj outift je belo ali namenjeno za nas obicne ljude koji zivimo u hladnim klimama. Umesto stikli obucite vase zimske cizme, Ugg, Sorel ili bilo koje druge sto vas greju ove zime. Da li bi ste vi nosili belo ove zime?

Keeping It Short


Sweater H&M, shorts Vanilla Star (Winners), heels Aldo, necklace unknown Ebay, bag Louis Vuitton, watch Michael Kors, necklace (worn as bracelet) Juicy Couture, off-white bracelet Joseph Nogucci, silver ring Aldo (old)
 
As the title indicates, I'm keeping it short today, both my outfit and my post. I have a busy day ahead but did not want to miss posting another outfit. Just like yesterday, I opted for shorts, this time however they are denim. I guess I just can't wait till the summer to wear them again. These shorts I especially love due to the sequence detailing on the sides. I usually keep the other clothing pieces simple and more classic so that the look does not look too young. Do you wear shorts in the winter? Ciao!
U skladu sa naslovom, danasnji outfit a i post ce biti kratki.Danasnji dan nosi puno obaveza sa sobom ali nisam htela da propusting da postavim jos jedan outfit post. Kao i juce, opet sam obukla sorc, ali ovoga puta od teksasa. Izgleda da nemam strpljenja da docekam leto da bi ga ponovo nosila. Ovaj sorc posebno volim zbog detalja sa strane. Ostale komade odece sam zadrzala neutralne i vise klasicne da ceo izgled ne bi dobio previse tinejdzerski izgled. Da li vi nosite sorc zimi? Cao!

Leather Shorts

Shorts Forever 21, boots Ebay, sweater H&M, blazer Zara, bag & necklace unknown Ebay, scarf Aldo, beanie Urban Planet

Hello ladies! Have I complained enough about the cold weather we have been having? Probably :). Not that I don't like winter. I love snow, I love skiing, skating and all of the winter sports. But how is one supposed to show off an outfit on -20? A big problem to have hahahah. This week few of the outfits have been shot in my old university building. I was visiting my family outside of Toronto and the only closed location that I could think off with enough natural light was one of the university buildings. It was also a walk down a memory lane for a bit. A lot of time has been spent hanging around these hallways. Now back to today's outfit. I love wearing shorts even in the winter so today I paired my PVC leather shorts with warm black tights, sweater and a blazer. With a warm coat I can comfortably be outside in this outfit (for about 10-15 minutes maximum hahaha). Have a great start to the week! Ciao!
Cao drage dame! Da li sam se dovoljno do sad zalila na ovu hladnocu sto ne jenjava? Verovatno :). Nije da ne volim zimu. Volim ja i sneg, i zimske sportove ali jedan problem me muci, Kako uslikati i prikazati outfit na minus 20? Veliki problem zar ne? hahah. Ove sedmice nekoliko outfita je uslikano na mom starom fakultetu. Dok sam bila u poseti roditeljima van Toronta, jedino mesto koje je imalo dovoljno prirodne svetlosti je bila jedna zgrada na faksu. I naravno neke stare uspomene su se probudile. Ipak su dani i meseci provedeni po tim hodnicima. A sad malo da se vratimo na outift. Kao sto znate, ja jako volim da nosim sorceve, pa cak i zimi. Danas sam svoj skajani sorc uparila sa toplim debelim najlonkama, prugastim dzemperom i sakoom. Uz topao kaput u ovom outfitu mozete cak provesti i vreme napolju (svega mozda 15ak minuta hhahaa). Zelim vam divnu nastupajucu sedmicu! Cao!

Layered

Jeans Fornarina, t-shirt Tristan, boots Aldo, chambray shirt H&M, sweater Forever 21, watch Swatch, bracelets unknown, bag Robert Dice (Winners)
 
Hello lovelies. Today is a double treat day. I am posting a new outfit and will also have a little giveaway where everyone will be a winner, but you will have to read on to find out more about it.
With today's outfit I had fun layering. I find that a sweater over a T-shirt is not warm enough for me these days, now that the polar cold is back. So to keep me warm, I wore a chambray shirt as an extra layer. It also creates a visually more interesting look. As I said before, you have to make sure that the layers are not too bulky otherwise you will look as if you just piled on clothes without thinking it through. Layering is not always the easiest task for me because I am top heavy but choosing the right T-shirt, tailored shirt and sweater allows even me to layer. Even though the jeans I chose for today are loose and low hanging, the outfit still looks put together because the pieces are tailored. Add a statement necklace for some sparkle and a structure handbag for some femininity. The boots you have seen me wear so much this winter are from Aldo, and now they are on sale (gray for $27.49). Don't miss out on this sale!
Now on to the giveaway. I have paired up with Trend Trunk to give my readers a little treat. This giveaway is only available to Canadian residents this time. For those of you not familiar with Trend Trunk already, here is a little background.
Trend Trunk is a social marketplace where you buy, sell, and donate amazing new and pre-loved fashion. They want to create a space that, besides being fashionable, is sustainable. I am a member since December and have already made over $300 selling my items. You can see my closet here. They believe that one person's lonely wardrobe is another's true love. Do you have items you don't want anymore? You can cash your closet and use those funds to shop another user's closet, donate funds to a charity of your choice or get the funds deposited directly into your account.
It's easy as 1, 2, 3.
Register online. Snap photo of your item and upload and follow a few easy steps. Shipping is made easy and fast. Once your item is sold, Trend Trunk will notify you and send you a trackable pre-paid shipping label already addressed to the buyer. You just print and attach to your package, drop at a local Canada Post office or pop it in the nearest mailbox, and you are done.
Now what do you win today? EVERY single person will win a gift card (valid in Trend Trunk money only) between $5 and $250 simply for registering. I will send you a link directly to your in-box through which you can register and receive your the gift card. What you need to do?
Like my Facebook page here (if you have not already).
Leave a comment below with your email address and your Facebook name. If you are having issues leaving a comment, please email me directly. 
I will email the registration link specifically for you, directly to you in-box. The contest is open to Canadian residents only and will start today and go until February 9, 2014.
Good luck! Ciao!

Peter Pilotto For Target

Hello ladies! Today’s post is a bit different to my usual outfit pots. Those of you who follow me on Facebook already got a little preview of what to expect this week on the blog and here it is today. I wanted to share something that I am really excited about. Some of you may have already heard and read about it, but those who have not, you are in  for a real treat. Even if there is not a Target store near you or you are in Europe or elsewhere in the world, keep on reading, there is some great news later on in the post.
I am so excited that Target has decided to collaborate with the amazing Brit duo, known as Peter Pilotto, to launch an affordable line for Target. I don’t usually get overly excited about these types of collaborations. I find that many only recycle their previous high quality items and produce them in the cheaper version. What I love about this collection is that it is made specifically for this collaboration. Yes some of the prints are drawn from their 2012 spring/summer collection but the styles are very unique. And what is more important, they stayed true to their style.

One thing that Peter Pilotto are really known for are their amazing prints. Words cannot describe how I feel about them. Every item seems so unique and like a piece of a painting.  Just check out their collections on their website Peter Pilotto. Their line for Target is even more interesting because it allows you to layer pieces to create more looks with even more prints. The prints compliment each other, so for example, you can wear a sleeveless dress seen in picture 5 on its own or wear it over a top for a new look, see picture 6.
I kept going over the whole collection (available on Fashionista) and could not decide which piece I love most. If I could I would get the whole collection, but I have to pick some favourites. Since I have to chose, I picked the sweatshirt (picture 7), skirt and a blouse (picture 2),  shorts/jacket combo (picture 8) and the amazing colour block blazer (picture 3).

All items are under $60 (Amazing!!!!) and here is the great news!!! Can I hear some bells? You can also buy most of the line on Net-A-Porter! So those of you who don’t have access to a Target store are in luck and can shop online. I will make sure to line up in front of the store when the line launches on February 9.  I just have to say: girls watch out! This time I will not be afraid to push!! Ahhahah. I just have to remember to wear some comfortable sneakers J.





Cardigans, bathing suits and beach towels 
Gorgeous jumpsuit for the summer

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. If you would like to see more of these types of post, leave a comment, email me or just contact me any way you find the easiest, as you have so far. Ciao!

Furry Glamour


Leggings Forever 21, boots unknown, tshirt H&M, vest Ebay, bird ring H&M, large ring Aldo (old), earrings unknown, clutch Rabiosa

What does one wear when going out in the winter? I always find it hard to figure out. You know that you will be warm wherever you end up, but getting there is a challenge. Just a thought of wearing a skirt or something lightweight in the freezing cold outside, gives me shivers. This outfit today is one outfit that I result to in the winter. Leather leggings, warm but stylish over the knee boots and a crisp white t-shirt. A fur vest is added for some drama and warmth but can be easily taken off if it gets too warm. With few pieces of statement jewellery and a studded clutch the look is complete. Don't forget the coat to get you there! :) Ciao!
Sta obuci za izlaza u ovim hladnim zimskim nocima? Ja se uvek nadjem u nedoumici kada stanem ispred svog ormara. Znate da ce vam biti toplo gde god se opredelite da izadjete, al stici tamo u tankoj odeci ili suknjici, po ovoj hladnoci, sama pomisao izaziva jezu. Danasnji outfit je nesto sto ja nosim za izlazak zimi. Kozne helanke, tople ali moderne cizme preko kolena i bela majica. Krzneni prsluk za malo toplote i drame, a koji je vrlo lako otkloniti ako vam postane toplo. Uz nekoliko velikih komada nakita i rucnu torbicu, outfit je kompletan. Naravno, ne zaboravite kaput :). Cao!
