Preatty In Stripes

Heels Gucci, skirt gold ring and bracelet Forever 21, chain bracelet H&M, belt Asos, top H&M,  handbag H&S Handbags, umbrella unknown, sunglasses Prada

I was helping my sister on the weekend clear out her closet and put some outfits together. And while clearing it out we came across this skirt which she had never worn yet. It's small for her so she gave it to me. I could not have been more excited! I have an obsession with stripes (parallel ones only) and polka-dots, which I have already explained in my post here and continue to show it in these pictures as well (just check out my umbrella). It had started to rain a bit so I brought the umbrella with me, but after snapping couple of pictures it stopped. I loved this picture with the umbrella so I decided to keep it. 
Back to the outfit. I wore this combo to go for weekday drinks with a friend of mine. Though she is coming from work to meet me, she is always nicely put together is some great corporate attire and a great pencil skirt. So I chose to dress up a bit in a pencil skirt as well. I love the length of disk skirt as it really elongates me. Again, due to lack of curves, I wear my favorite belt to accentuate my waste. Do you like it? Ciao!

Pastel Kind Of Day

Skinnies H&M, top Bershka, heels Stradivarius, handbag H&S Handbags, rings and bracelet Forever 21

 I usually wear bright and contrasting colours or a pastel combined with a pattern or a bright colour. But today I felt like wearing all pastels. Maybe because the weather has been little weird so I wanted to bring in some softness and brightness in my day. Definitely not the hot summer I hoped for. Just look at the sky in some of the photos! I love the outcome of combining these soft colours together. It matches perfectly with that cute little house in the background too :) What do you think of this outfit?. Happy Tuesday everyone! Ciao!

Overall It's All Good

 
 Overalls/dungarees and bandeau Stradivarius, sneakers All Star, clutch/bag old (Winners), love and chain necklaces Forever 21, gold chain with round love pendant gift old, rings and bracelet Forever 21, chain ring H&M
 
I'm continuing this week in a more casual style. When I first bought these overalls or dungarees, however you like to call them, I was not sure how much wear I would get out of them. But after playing with them for a bit, I realized it is quite a versatile piece. Depending what your style is, it can be made to look more grunge, more sexy, classic, sporty, and so on. I opted for a more sporty version. I paired them with this cropped top or bandeau for a hot summer day and to tone it down a bit, my All Star sneakers. I don't own many sneakers, I think only 3 pairs. These, a black pair with hidden heel and a pair of running/exercise sneakers. The rest are heels :). And how lovely the background of this farm like building to go with the overalls. Hope you're having a great Monday! Ciao!

The Love Affair Continues


 Heels Manolo Blahnik, sunglasses gift shop buy ($5), handbag H&S gift, jeans old unknown, t-shirt Joe Fresh, scarf Bershka,  earrings old JLO, watch Michael Kors, black/gold bracelet Joe Fresh, gold bracelets H&M, ring Ebay

Hello my dear ladies. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday evening after an even more wonderful weekend! I am back with a more casual outfit. Last week was a bit dressier so I need to go back to my more standard outfits. As you can tell, in about a week that I have owned these wonderful Manolos, they have already appeared on my blog 3 times. You may have already noticed my love affair with my beautiful Asos belt. Well, maybe its time to spice things up and add one more member, and these beauties are a great addition :).
This outfit is something you will see me in most often. I love a great skinny jean. Most body types look good in them, you just have to find the right fit for you. Make sure they don't have too much stretch in them as they will not do you good, especially if you have not been blessed with a bigger behind. Opt for something with about 10%-15% elastin only. They give you a better support but will last longer too.  One of the reasons I love them is because they really show off your legs even when they are fully covered, but mostly because they do a great job of displaying whatever amazing shoe you are wearing :).

Alternative To A Dress

Leather bag Ebay, bracelet Forever 21, necklace gift, corset Ebay, belt Asos, pants Zara

This is a last outfit post for the week. I have dedicated three days this week to providing suggestions for wedding attire ideas and will end the week with a post on the same topic. Just as the previous two posts, this is also an outfit that can be worn from day to night just by switching your top and jewellry, so that you always get more for your money. Before I go on, please disregard my tired face. I was up late with a friend and my face/eyes always give me away the next day :).
I have been thinkging lately about what is appropriate wedding attire. Who made it a must to wear a dress only? What if you are the type of a person that does not like to wear dresses? Or maybe you just don't want to blend with the crowd? I always love to see a celebrity wear a glamorous sexy suit to an event where everyone is wearing dresses only. I think they really stand out and look fierce. I personaly don't wear dress pants a lot, it is either jeans or skinny type pants but rarely dress pants. As you know from my previous post here, I am in love with these Zara mustard yellow dress pants. I have paired them here with my corset which you have seen me wear here and here, and with my favourite belt. You can wear it with your hair down, but I love it with the hair in an updo so that your shoulders and collarbone really show off (since you are not showing off your legs). Is there anything more sexy then the woman's neck and collarbone? What do you think of this alternative? Ciao!
