Plead for plaid

Hi everybody!

I have to confess i really have abandoned you lately. So many things to do, so little time.
In this post i would like to share one of the hottest trends of upcoming autumn, that is the plaid. Checks, plaids, and even ginghams made an appearance on New York fashion week runaways. When you hear plaid you probably think of 90’s grunge. But this fall it’s all about the bright plaid from 70’s. Suits, skirts and coats, mostly coats!

Slip dress

Hi everybody!
This summer i spotted one more trend and it’s slip dresses. I pretty much like them, if worn on naked skin, but i really notice girls wering it on some t-shirt or on turtleneck. But this last option is clearly not one of my favourits. The most common ones i saw were the ones from silk and velvet.
So here’s some looks that include slip dress, please have a look and enjoy.

P.S.: Sorry this post is so short:3

Color sessions: pastels!

Hi darlings!
Due to work i am in Croatia now. Sorry for being quiet for so long, i had lot’s of things to prepare for that trip, but now i am here and i have some spare time to post something nice. Croatia is really sunny and hot, i arrived here in black jeans and dark t-shirt and it was like hell in direct sun. And don’t ask how but i thought about pastel colored outfits, and how light they are and everything. So here’s my little gathering of pictures with sweet pastel outfits.
Enjoy!

Gypsy style

Hi!
Today’s post is quite random. I just keep thinking about how the festival in Estonia gone wrong, and remember the other eventslike this that i visited. And when the weather allows it – people make sooo impressive costumes and outfits!
The style i love the most (except for dark minimalistic ninja with acute angles in outfit haha) is the gypsy style. That includes lots of accesories, maxi dresses, or just roomy clothes, sometimes lace, hats, rings, necklaces etc. etc.
It doesn’t really has to do with real gypsy, it’s more Boho, but i associate it with gypsy style)
So here i gathered some of the outfits that i think match this style.

Need to feel cozy

Hello darlings!
Today i am working from home, cuse after that festival i told you about i have a terrible flu. So now i feel pretty sad and alone, i do not really like working from home, somehow i feel trapped. The sky is cloudy and this makes everything even worse. So This post is not really about fashion and style – it’s more about the mood, i just want to feel as cozy as the girls on these photos. But of course i will be happy if this post will help you find some nice and warm home wear!

Raincoats for any occasion

Hello everybody!
I came back from the festival Into the valley. What can i say – i didn’t relly like it 😦 The artists were cool, but the weather, the organization and lot’s of other things were not good. Actually the weather was terrible. It was raining almost all the time we were there. So this post is about clothing for rain, and more precisely – raincoats. I was wearing one, a very pink one) So here are some more. Enjoy!

Pajamas for everyday!

Hello darlings!
Sorry for posting nothing this week, i just was at a business travel and had no time for that. Now i am shortly back, but the next 5-6 days i will be abcent once more, for the music festival Into the Valley 🙂
So the previous week i was in Cannes! Just imagine that. There is an advertising festival Cannes Lions, so me and my colleagues went there. It was very busy trip but wery nice still – we met lot’s of interesting people.
And there i saw a very interesting kind of outfit. It looks completely like a pajama, but is worn with pumps or sandals. I liked the idea, cause it looks both cute and stylish. I saw the one with shorts, and belive me that was cool!

The story behind: polka dot

Hello world!
Today i will continue the seies of posts about histores of different things in fashion. As the next theme i chose polka dot. In my country there is no such therm, but in wide number of countries were people’s native language is english this words are commonly used. The Oxford English Dictionary defines “polka dot” as “Any of a number of round dots of uniform size repeated so as to form a regular pattern, usually on fabric”.

So why polka? This word actually means a woman from Poland. An also a dance! Really, according to the info i found the term polka dot appeared after the massive popularity of this dance. Somewhere at 1830th polka became so popular that the manufacturers began to append “polka” to lots of different and totally unrelated things in attempt to capitalize this “polka-mania”. Those things disappeared but the spotty pattern remained.

And then polka dot continued it’s walk of fame through the fashion history. Firstly the Miss America was photographed in a polka dot swimsuit in 1926, then Disney created Minny Mouse, that was wearing a polka dot dress, and finally after wartime Dior released a collection of polka dot dresses. And so on and on and on.
So hope that was interesting for you pals, and here, as always, i gathered a set of looks for you:

Color sessions: orange

I think that orange is one of the “difficult to wear” colors. Cause it’s very bright and it takes some time to come up with some other color it will suit. Some time ago i already had posts about pink and olive. Now it’s time for orange.
I will write it once more: please do not wear orange with pink. Really. Those are not the colors that will match one another. (okay, that’s only my opinion of course).

Orange is good with white, black, blue and purple. I couldn’t find many examples of orange+purple, i apologize for that in advance!

Everyday pin-up

Hi darlings!
I really like pin up, but for me this is not an everyday style, you have to select your outfits and care about your hairstyle and to be honest i do not always have time or will for it. So i keep it like my secret not-every-day passion)
But if we talk about everyday pinup, i really want to share with you the outfits of Dita Von Teese. Not hte ones she wears for some events or something, just something she chooses for her everyday life. I can’t say it’s always in a straight pin up style, but still she looks really in-style!
