Jumpsuit-Fairy-Tale with happy ending

It took me couple of years, thousands of hours in fitting rooms and a lot of courage to eventually get off doubts about jumpsuit. Yeah, it is trendy and yeah it looks fancy and yeah, all this bla- bla- bla, but truly I have never ever seen any, which would look good on me. This happens actually quite often- pieces, which looks gorgeous on models, on photos in magazines and which I admire on mannequins in shop-windows when pulled on mine body starts to look like a bag for potatoes :/ Due to this traumatic experience for long time I didn't even try on any jumpsuit- not to lower my selfesteem, 'cos who likes to see him/herself looking hideous??? 

I lived safe life in my cave free of jumpsuits until I have seen one of my favourite fashion bloggers: Maffashion in gorgeous blue jumpsuit looking so sophisticated and so chic as no one before (to verify my taste you can check HERE). That was the moment I understood that I have to go hunting and find exactly the same piece! 

As you can imagine searching for ideal piece always ends with nothing, and so that had happen. No jumpsuit, no blue queen outfit and no happy face for me, my friends... I agreed with my destiny and get over with greeve and that is when miracle had happen. TOTALLY BY ACCIDENT I went for sale shopping and I actually didn't even want to buy anything, rather to verify that all the best is already sold out when I reached shop I usually do not go in and found THE ONE AND ONLY PERFECT JUMPSUIT!

After trying it on for half an hour I decided it passed the test and I still love it and so you can see it now on pics. It is fully mine and I will never split with it. Now I have everything- I am fulfilled and I can enjoy my time peacefully!

Patterns Mix

Mixing different patterns is always bit of a risk, isn't it? Polka dot and stripes, checked fabric with animal print and all other mixes can cause a bit of concern, but sometimes we just have to go wild, don't we? 

So did I yesterday, when matching stripped top with animal print skirt. I came up with it by way of elimination. I wanted to wear this top (New Look)as I have it for couple of weeks and I never felt like wearing it. Wearing it with black skirt was so boring, so to chose a perfect match I checked all the skirts and pants I have in my wardrobe (made a huge mess in the meantime, but luckily 53R102K4 showed understanding!). At the bottom, the last one I tried, was this old colourful skirt from Next. When put together it stole my heart. 

Sorry, but on pics I am speaking with 53R102K4*(not about the mess though) but conversation couldn't wait and unfortunately pics could not be made later.

Who doesn't love sales??? I definitely do! 

In the middle of the summer all brands, luxurious and main stream ones organise some kind of the happening for all fashion addicts, like myself and decide to sell out all the garments available in the shop in very attractive prices (up to 75% less than original price!). Good bargain? Undoubtedly, especially that during this time we already know trends for upcoming season and we can simply buy something for future without getting bankrupt.

My way to deal with sales involves a lot of walking around the shops, but it is so worth it. Usually I do one round through shops in the very first week of sales- even though everything is quite expensive, the best items wont last till end of July. So if you were sick to buy something from the middle of the March, but due to it's ridiculous price your concious was stopping you this is the moment to buy it! 

There is bunch of stuff we don't realize that we so-so-urgently-need though and they can wait for the second round through sales at the end of July. It is a time, where everything reaches it's lowest price and this is also time, when you can gather something new for autumn time. I usually shop two type of things: shoes at that time- there is nothing better than pair of amazing leather shoes in crazy low price!, and things which I call special- garments that I would never-ever buy for it's regular price, but ones that become suspiciously attractive when price is getting lower. 

My pics this summer were: 
stilettos- always in fashion,
skirt- 'cos it was so cute,
jumpsuit- I was afraid I will never wear and now I even wish to sleep in, 
top with transparent detail on top as it looked decent and perfect for THE-OFFICE
and bunch of accessory including necklaces, rings, bracelets, bag (my backpack is from H&M not CHANEL, but looks so-so alike I didn't find it's picture though :/ ) and of course sunglasses.

What was your pics?
Happy hunting!!!

Different shades of WHITE

Did you know that Eskimos has a couple of words to differ white colour?* I remember how surprised I was when I first heard about it. Amazing how environment affects our vocabulary, but it truly does. Reason is boringly logical. We speak about things we see, so if our surrounding has different colours white, why not to give them names to make life easier? 
In my language we have just one WHITE colour and we are more used to differ shades of gray, which I believe is more culturally conditioned. If it is about white, it is being used to tame the hot weather. We believe white do not attracts sun, so lower experiencing of heat. Whatever cools down also helps to survive summer in the city. 
Inspired by Eskimo vocabulary and summer trend for white took a challenge of setting different shades of white to tame both hot weather and office dress-code. I hope you like the effect. 
*I am using expression of 'couple of words white' to simplify my thoughts. I need to explain myself that I know that we are not able to translate directly from any language to another, so if you are interested in Eskimo vocab please check for example HERE.

(Recently I was trying to focus on FASHION BLOGGING, but today it's time for a bit of EGOBLOGGING*. )

I become a bit passive lately. I don't know, if it is hot weather or so called Spring Solstice. Or maybe both- maybe none, as it is already middle of the Summer. 

It has been more than half of the 2014 gone, so time of little summary has come. I set up some goals (yeah, yeah... NEW-YEAR RESOLUTIONS are coming back to me as a hiccup) and I so-so-so very want to achieve them by the end of December. To really make it happen I decided to do a little review. 

 Now after couple of months, I KNOW what I really have done or missed, I KNOW whenever I have skipped my belly training or did not focus on my VF project due to being lazy. I am the most strict judge for myself, simply because I KNOW EVERYTHING! The worst part is that THERE ARE NO EXCUSES 'COS I DO IT ALL JUST FOR MYSELF, so how come I can be lazy about improving my own well being?

Owh, it become a bit too philosophical I believe... I need some kick though... 

The reason I write it down is that now, when it is published, I will be more motivated to proceed. I am telling you, guys, I will squeeze myself as a lemon to make my project work by the end of the summer and make it work in a way I will be proud to show to the universe. I will also proceed with my belly training, even though it is so G*D* hot that exercising is the hardest activity ever. 

It is like my trainer always says: if I give up now, just because it is hard, I will not make it easier, I will make myself look ridiculous instead.  So fingers crossed, attitude improved, head up and I am going to rule this world .

*I read this term on one of the blogs, HERE.

P.S. One of my recent looks to still be connected to fashion ;)

Dolce and Gabbana Alta Moda- Marvelous and Fairy Fashion Tale

In parts of the world I come from we always say that there is nothing more chic nor stylish than Italian fashion. In between fashion houses one of the top ones, is being recognizable due to it's unique approach of woman body while celebrating silhouette and femininity. A duet of Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce for years proved their place in fashion history is fairly earned and so they did last weekend while fashion Alta Moda show on Capri.

200 guests gathered in between the rocks and seaside landscape was treated with all respect needed. The models, who came to an island on flotilla of boats, were strolling in gorgeous, enormously big and amazingly beautiful dresses and took away breath of the audience. Like princesses from Disney movies followed by the other garments, not so gown-alike, but still sophisticated and chic. What not to love- the colors were juicy and gorgeously matched, patterns as always in the duet's work were rich but stayed classy, design flattered all the silhouettes.

The island, the gowns, the models and everything what could be experienced during the show was fairy and marvelous. Fashion is an art and designer's duet confirmed again they are the top artists in it's field.
