Weather’s been pretty nice lately and I can finally crawl out of the winter hole, and since the days are longer too, I can actually have some time to shoot posts after work. How cool is that.
Today’s outfit is a comfy combination of classic slim black pants and an oversized weirdly glittering sweater with a pair of classic strappy sandals. What’s good about this look is that you’re rocking it pretty chill, but at the same time the sandal and the harness give it a more prepped up look. So it’s a win-win situation.
Another good thing about it is that its completely on the cheap side. The overall bill on it sums up under 100lv (50$), since the sweater is a second hand boutique piece and the jeans – H&M.
So this month I had plans of doing a little #stylevember thing. I felt like trying out so many styles I haven’t worn before and therefore shooting the best ones for the blog, but with the university and my job taking up the best parts of the day, I only have time for maybe not even half of what I intended on posting. November’s not even close to being over yet though, so I still will do my best to deliver.
This one doesn’t really fit into any particular major fall trend, except maybe the ruffle hype one. It’s just an outfit I find comfortable, easy to put together and affordable, yet not dull and ordinary.
The dress is a second hand MANGO piece I’ve been trying really hard to find a trace of online, but with no luck so far. I’m curious to know what year it was made in and for, since it without a doubt fits perfectly into 2016.
The jacket is ZARA, but there’s still more to see from it, so I’ll keep the info for the next post.
Now let’s talk about Shoe Aquarium and how it offers a set of pretty good seasonal alternatives to really expensive shoes. Whenever in need of a crazy shoe, know that that’s the place. These boots are from last season, but I still find them relatively trend fitting.
And last but definitely not least – special thanks to Peyo Peev from Art Studio Allure for being extremely patient and amazing at what he does! Make sure to check out his page! Like, very sure.
You don’t even have to worry on how to wear them- the fun part is, this time around there’s no rule to bind you, so pick a color (as long as Pantone approves it for this autumn… or don’t- your choice, right?), add some embrodiery and finish your glittery fancy evening outfit with a woolen hat- Zuhair Murad and Ralph & Russo say it’s okay!
Fur’s also still in. Like never before. You could go crazy with that too.
OH! And vynyl! I love vynyl.
Hope you guys enjoyed! Stay stylish and take care. ~
As many of you may have noticed, I’m more of a dark/natural colors fan. So when Pantone announced the color(s) of the year, I was aware that it was going to take me a while to find pieces to suit me and my taste in these exact two colors. And it did. Eight months into 2016, after almost having given up on even trying to wear this color combination, I find these two one next to the other… in a thrift shop. On the spot, I knew they were worthy for my blog.
Lately I’ve been constantly way too critical of the outfits we shoot and most of them (around 8/10) don’t even make it to the blog. And yes, this is one reason for the lack of posts and huge gaps between them, along with me having a new job, but I do promise to try getting over my perfectionism and to post more frequently.
So here’s how I feel about skate shoes and their brands: they’ve been incredibly underestimated AND underrated in the past few years. Probably because brands like Nike, Adidas, Puma, etc. managed to steal the market back from them after a decade of skate shoe mania. But, in my opinion, just because a brand’s advertisement and market success are better, doesn’t mean an entire branch of shoe style should be slowly wiped out of the market, as I feel is happening to skate shoes in Bulgaria lately. Most people tend to blindly follow mass trends without even slightly trying to fit something new or different into them, or even better- make it a subtrend.
I for one am not at all ready to let go of the amazing quality and rad look of skate shoes and I do intend to keep trying to fit them back into trend, as I do believe they still have a lot to offer.
Take care and think about giving those babies a second chance!
