A word on upcycling

January 06, 2022

 

One sparkly look because it's Orthodox Christmas Eve. 😍 I got this bag couple of days ago and I really like the shape which is similar to a silhouette of a 90s baguette bag. The bag itself is a great example of upcycling in fashion, the top part and a handle are made out of zippers. Recycling in a world of fashion is often being criticized, since most of the recycled clothing items end up in landfills anyways, instead of being properly recycled and made into something else.
On the other hand, upcycling is a process in which items are directly made into new items and there are many brands like Re/Done making whole collections out of previously used garments. When I first heard about it, upcycling sounded a little silly, but now it makes so much sense, especially with so many new clothing items being produced every day around the World.

Winter denim

January 05, 2022

 


Some of the photos I took at the end of last year, with one of my favorite denim jackets. 
I love wearing denim jackets and they are not really something you'll wear during colder winter months, although you can pull it off during rare warmer winter days. These ''shearling'' denim jackets, on the other hand, can keep you warm and create nice wintry looks unless it's snowing or freezing. I got this one because it looks so pretty with high waisted pants (or jeans if you are doing that denim on denim look) and dresses. If you've watched Gilmore girls you probably remember Lorelai and Rory both had similar jackets. I always wandered what kind of weather they had in Stars Hollow to be able to wear such jackets during the whole winter. 😆

2022

January 04, 2022

OK, not the first day of the year, but I'm wishing you an amazing one! Even if you are not in a holiday mood you can still have a great start of the year. Here's what I ended up wearing on New Year's eve, same corset I posted in one of the previous posts, only over a shirt. That's a great thing about corsets, you can style them on their own as well as with other garments. I was also wearing a skort, it's a mixture of a skirt and a pair of shorts (for those who didn't know), but I feel like many people love and wear them. My sister and I also got these plastic tiaras to wear on the 31., which ended up being more fun that wearing antlers or a Santa's hat. 

New Year's lookbook: deep blue dress

December 31, 2021

Second New Year's lookbook is this one with a deep blue dress that reminds me a bit of Yves Klein shade of blue (I wrote about that color ages ago here on the blog). Halter neck dresses are among my favorite ones when it comes to dress cuts, although this has more of a turtleneck than a halter neck top part. Bottom part if quite ruffled which is not usually my thing, but I think it looks cute here.  
Happy New year, as always I'm wishing you a best year so far!

New Year's lookbook: floral corset

December 30, 2021

 


Corsets have been one of the biggest trends at the end of 2021 and will probably still be huge in 2022. For New Year's eve you can pair them with literals anything, even a shirt dress. This one here is made by upcycling vintage fabric and that's why the print looks so unique and pretty. Floral corsets like these are one option, there are so many gorgeous ones in solid colours as well. There are also different cuts for corsets, this one here is more of a classic shape, which I like the most. 

Current trends I've been loving

September 27, 2021

If there's one thing we didn't expect form this year (and the last one as well) is so many new trends in fashion and hairstyles. Of course, fashion and style do always change no matter what and especially during the big changes in society, but it somehow looked like everyone is at home wearing couple of cozy outfits, instead, thanks to social media (mainly TikTok) so many great trends appeared. Including Y2K aesthetic which became so popular even Vogue is publishing articles about it (in print nevertheless).
So here are some of these trends I've been loving and some that remained from the previous years.

Cord pants

April 07, 2021

Not the best thing to have winter weather in April, but it gives you a chance to wear some of those outfits we won't be wearing again until October. Since spring is my favorite season I really look forward to genuine spring outfits and all those lovely vintage inspired clothing you can't usually wear under heavy coats. I'm not so sure wether I did some outfit posts with these pants before, they are my favourite corduroy pants and I think my only pair of this kind. Corduroy is mainly a winter fabric so I wouldn't wear these without sweaters or at least turtleneck.
