Some more video love

via
I thought about doing another video love post when I was watching a music video, of course when I started doing the post I had already totally forgotten where I had got this amount of inspiration. Nevertheless, I have Beyoncé up my sleeve - while watching her video "Run the world (Girls)" I couldn't help but notice the amazing green gown she was wearing - Pucci, Fall 2011.

The song isn't that bad either ^_^

Cya!!

Closet insight #1


I'm giving you an exclusive sneek-peek into my closet. This is for everyone to see - my wardrobe is not exactly a burst of rainbow colors. However, these are only my tops and sweaters-cardigans, so that is sort of a consolation for me. ^_^ I'm seriously trying to make my wardrobe as versatile as possible, not going straight to the dark and gloomy colors in stores.
I'm still not used to my new blog design, Weird, right? I'm not actually that surprised because black going white&pink is a huge change.
Sorry about the pic quality, too, I guess. (Phones, ya know)

Cya!! xx

Autumn break

Youtube is seriously a miraculous place. First of all the video for 25 different ways to wear a scarf, now this?! How is it that I discovered this ingenious stuff so late? The first one is the most common and even I have done it before...However, the rest of these are worth giving a shot, too. Plus you can get a men's shirt at any thrift store, I mean I've gotten them for $2. So now sewing, practically no money and 3 minutes of different styles and you're good for the day!

Cya!! [Yep, still working on a signature]

Random


This post isn't really going to be about clothes...just a quick overview of how active I have been concerning this blog, that means how often I publish posts.











Obviously I haven't been active neither on Mondays and Sundays in September and only 9 posts in 17 days in October...Actually I think it's a good idea to publish something every other day, that way there isn't an info-overdose. I try to keep my posts as wonderfully short as I can.
And the 27th of August was the first time I published a post on this blog. Awesome, right?
Also I'm thinking about a new blog design. This black is already getting on my nerves.

P.S I need a camera!!

Cya!

Sweet, sugar, Candyman!

Out of all the thousands of singers out there, I have to say that I'm so happy to have remembered how much of a Christina Aguilera fan I used to be something like 5 years ago. A few days ago I started searching songs for a party mix and I found "Obvious", "Reflection" and other songs from her older albums. However my favorite Christina period has to be 2006-7ish because then she had the Golden era theme going on and I freaking love all of it. The video for "Candyman" is perfection, I love the cute pink dress(on the pic, too) and the embroidered socks with high heels! Inspiration? YES!

I made a full album of the pics from the video here.

P.S. The video has product placement in it, a bottle of Campari. Am I the only one who noticed that 5 years too late?

Cya'll soon!

Warmth

vogue.com
Sometimes it's weird how putting on some certain piece is so comforting - an old but fabulous skirt, a comfy sweater, my most precious heels...I guess it's all about being confident. Sometimes I do lack confidence but I just have to keep myself focused on the good things in life.
Anyway, it seems to me that big, colorful sweaters are the must-have of this season. I wish I could upload decent photos of my styled sweaters!

Cya'll soon.

Denim love

via
Time to show a little denim love. Again? Yep. To be honest, at one point I promised myself I would never wear jeans again, they had just lost their appeal. Sadly they're an inseparable part of my wardrobe even though I'm beginning to get fed up with them. No originality, you know. Okay, maybe it's just me...I wouldn't be surprised. ^_^
However, I simply love the long denim shirt-dress I wore today. It's quite similar to the one on the photo, but mine has shorter sleeves (hence the tee) and is a bit more dress-ish.

P.S. My b-day is soo close!! I hope to get a camera! Fingers crossed, right?
And guess what? It's raining.

Color of the day #2

1 2 3 4
Sort of. This is more of a print of the day #1, since this is a post dedicated to these gorgeous dresses. At the moment this is just what I need for some inspiration. Something summery, colorful... In other news, my b-day is just around the corner + so is Christmas...Okay, not really. Anyway, my class is hosting the annual school ball this year. I wont announce the theme right now because only our class (+other staff) should know it, but I need to get a dress soon! I'd really like to make one myself. Sadly I can't tell you what the standard would be for my dress...you would guess the theme within seconds. I can't wait to tell you the secret, soon!

Cya! xx


P.S Check out my album with extra pics here. You can also like my FB page.
And here is an online gallery of breathtaking dresses. I have to have all of them!!

Just so

via
Somehow red plaid has left the deepest impression upon me...A new fave? Maybe. When I was looking for a cool image for this post I found a pic that led me to a website called "Best pole dancing clothes". Thanks, but no thanks! At the moment I'm hoping the sweater I bought has dried (yes I like to wash things before I wear them for the first time) and I thought about shopping habits. Some people just go into the store, pick something out and buy it. Since stores mostly have flexible return policies that isn't actually a bad idea - you can try it on at home when you have more time. As much as I love shopping, I hate the hideous dressing rooms and the less time I have to spend there, the better.
Anyway, some other awesome pics from style.com. Prabal Gurung is my fave designer at the moment. You'll see why...

Lace love

1  2
I think I did a pretty horrible job with the pictures. They don't forward the idea I had in mind at all. I'm actually in a rush, sort of, I have a test in Biology tomorrow. I don't have to struggle at school that much, if I don't study really hard, I still get a B. At one point it hit me though - if I want to do what I dream of in the future (Umm...still don't know, but that's not the point) I have to get straight A's. But people shouldn't decide my future just based on some grades I got when I was 16...Anyway, this whole thing was supposed to have a point but I guess that doesn't matter anymore.

P.S. Tomorrow is thrifty day ... I hope!!

The two sides to one story

Prabal Gurung

No matter what, the more I get into talking about style, I get sucked into surrealism. If I only had the time to make pieces inspired by these, it would be a huge addition to my wardrobe! Anyway I hope to get a camera for my b-day and that's when all the fun begins! Fingers crossed!

What's your fave mixture of two different colors? Mine ... hehe, look at the pics above :)

Sunday is ending

It's 9:11 pm. In less than 11 hours I'll be in school, in French class. Somehow it all seems so dark. Maybe it's because it's almost pitch black outside. The darker days get, the more I try to wear clothes that tell everyone : I'm okay. I don't have the usual dark days depression. I think I should concentrate on the good and that means not care what others think about what I'm wearing. It's all about feeling good inside.

Something that makes me feel good

The best thing - I have a green one just like on the first pic. ^_^
