Just a quick hello from me today. I will not be writing too much (though I’ve said that before and half a page later, I am still writing heheh). Today, on this gloomy, rainy, gray day, I wanted to share a pretty bright outfit. Yeah, boots are gray but a nice shade of gray, happy not sad J. I had a brunch with the ladies on Saturday for one of my best friends’ birthday so I opted for a feminine and soft outfit. It happened to be a beautiful and sunny day so it worked out perfectly. Skirt is old from H&M, boots and coat are from a consignment store and coat is old Zara.  Recycling clothes is the best, isn’t it?

Ciao!

I seem to be very much into gray colour this winter. I always loved it but for some reason I have been wearing it a lot more than usual. I guess it’s a great alternative to more common neutral colours such as black and tan/beige. Today I opted for oversized trend. Though it may not be the best choice for my body shape and my height, I still enjoy dressing this way, especially in the winter. Partially because I love the look, partially because I love feeling cozy when it’s cold outside, but also because I put on a few pounds in my waist area in the winter months (all those holidays and yummy foods, mmmm)  so I don’t like wearing anything too tight on a daily basis. It is also not the easiest outfit to photograph. However, things to remember when dressing in oversized trend: your accessories have to be structured and you should opt for a more monochromatic look. Too many colours and unstructured accessories may make you look sloppy, and that’s not a trend right? :)

I read an article in the newspaper not too long ago, about how to keep up appearances. The writer of the article talks about attending a high society type of an event and having been complemented on her Joe Fresh sunglasses. For those who are reading this article but are not familiar with the brand, here is an explanation. It is an affordable brand of clothes and accessories which started off being sold in full service grocery stores but later opened up standalone stores.  The write or the article goes to say that if we are ever in a similar situation, we should resist the urge to share the information that the item we are wearing is not a designer one. Furthermore, it suggests we should never admit to not having money.  This was a shock to me! I don’t understand where the shame is in wearing affordable clothing. Not that we need approval from celebrities, but even they wear affordable pieces. Someone like Olivia Palermo who is one of the most photographed people at all fashion weeks, has become known for being the best at mixing the high and the low.   
Style doesn't come with money! If you look stylish, put together and expensive on a cheap, to me that’s an even greater accomplishment! Why be ashamed of it? I never was. I have attended many events where everyone wore expensive suits, ties and purses, meanwhile I wore an outfit that all together cost $100 yet received so many compliments. I agree that you don't need to blurt out right away where you bought the item and how much you paid (which I often do because I get awkward being given a compliment) but when asked, why not share and be proud of your style?

My outfit today is made up of all affordable brands and vintage pieces, and I would not think I look cheap at all. I do however suggest not buying something just because it is on sale or is cheap. Do look for structure, quality, proper stitching and rich colours and materials. If you want to spend a lot of money, do invest in more classic pieces. I love investing in shoes and bags, and this is what I save for.
Feel free to share your thoughts on this topic or outfit with me. 

Happy weekend all!

Ciao!
