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

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…
