I read an article in the newspaper not too long ago, about how to keep up appearances. The writer of the article talks about attending a high society type of an event and having been complemented on her Joe Fresh sunglasses. For those who are reading this article but are not familiar with the brand, here is an explanation. It is an affordable brand of clothes and accessories which started off being sold in full service grocery stores but later opened up standalone stores.  The write or the article goes to say that if we are ever in a similar situation, we should resist the urge to share the information that the item we are wearing is not a designer one. Furthermore, it suggests we should never admit to not having money.  This was a shock to me! I don’t understand where the shame is in wearing affordable clothing. Not that we need approval from celebrities, but even they wear affordable pieces. Someone like Olivia Palermo who is one of the most photographed people at all fashion weeks, has become known for being the best at mixing the high and the low.   
Style doesn't come with money! If you look stylish, put together and expensive on a cheap, to me that’s an even greater accomplishment! Why be ashamed of it? I never was. I have attended many events where everyone wore expensive suits, ties and purses, meanwhile I wore an outfit that all together cost $100 yet received so many compliments. I agree that you don't need to blurt out right away where you bought the item and how much you paid (which I often do because I get awkward being given a compliment) but when asked, why not share and be proud of your style?

My outfit today is made up of all affordable brands and vintage pieces, and I would not think I look cheap at all. I do however suggest not buying something just because it is on sale or is cheap. Do look for structure, quality, proper stitching and rich colours and materials. If you want to spend a lot of money, do invest in more classic pieces. I love investing in shoes and bags, and this is what I save for.
Feel free to share your thoughts on this topic or outfit with me. 

Happy weekend all!

Ciao!

  1. What an absolute truth. If you look put together, it makes no difference what the cost of the outfit is! xo

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

Pants Zara, jacket Zara, sneakers Forever21, bag unknown (Winners), dress unknown (similar), ankle boots PrettyLittleThings

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Lace SheIn Dress & Purple OTK Boots

Dress SheIn (size M), bag SheIn, boots Ebay These boots may be one of the best purchases I’ve made in a long time. I know that at first they may not appear like an item that you will wear much, but they go so perfectly with most dresses and skirts, but are also thin enough that you may wear then under pants. It’s such a perfect statement piece and it will make any outfit pop. I love the purple especially but I’m also looking to purchase a beige/tan pair, and pink and …. 😊 Even the material is not very sensitive to dirt which I thought it would be. This is an old outfit I wore in late spring this year but never got to post it on the blog, so I decided to do it today. I think this outfit would also be great for a New Years party. Why always go for sparkle on New Years? Instead, make a statement with hot boots and beautiful, feminine dress.

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…
