Rampage Sheer Skirt

I am wearing Rampage skirt, Salvatore Ferragamo shoes, Zara top, Forever21 necklace, Kohl's faux leather jacket, DIY snakeskin print clutch

This look is an entry to Chictopia's Joie Girl Contest sponsored by Joie! And I would really be so so greatful if you guys vote for me!! I have never won anything like that in my life and it would be a most wonderful thing for me!!! Pretty please!! If you have a Chictopia account, vote on Chictopia, or like on Facebook!

How amazing is this skirt!!? I fell in love with it at first sight and just had to have it! As well as the shoes – the comfiest heel ever created – credit to the Italian maker. And just the right punch of color in this black and white scheme. I wanted to own something by Ferragamo, and now I do!
I am proceeding to dress minimal. It’s a big statement if you can look fabulous with very little on. And you don’t even feel this skirt. But be prepared – people are going to stare, both men and women, to see right through it, so if you are of a shy kind, give up the idea immediately!
I hope you like it! I know I do! So so much! This outfit just speaks to me – it’s edgy yet simple, striking yet understated. I feel like a model in it. And what girl doesn’t want to be one, even if just for a day…

Leather Jacket, Leather Leggings, Sequined Clutch

I am wearing Tiger print T-shirt old, leggings - Apple Bottoms, faux leather jacket from Kohl's, ankle boots - Forever21, watch - NY&Co, bracelet Forever21, necklace Jennifer Lopez, sequined clutch - DIY

Some of my favorite looks ever are those of  models off duty. They always look so edgy yet effortless, so sharp and put together, even if it seems like they just threw on some random pieces. They often choose black and minimal for their looks, they like understated outfits that don't outshine their beauty, but on the contrary, let it shine trough. They always look fabulous.
I decided to do a "model off duty" look today. I wore my leather like leggings with a white graphic top, animal prints and have been so popular lately and I definitely like the tiger print on this one. I threw on my leather jacket, and accessorized with gold clutch and jewelry. 
It's getting a bit chilly here. I can't wait to wear layers again. I will be experimenting with models off duty looks, because I feel very comfortable in outfits of this kind. I still love preppy and vintage and retro, but who said I can't switch from day to day and be different. I really hope you like this one. These few last days were pretty hectic, so even I did post every day I feel like I did it all in a hurry and that's not how I like to do things, hopefully I'll have more time to do decent posts.

Fur coat, mini dress, mustard tights and high boots

I am wearing Kenar fur coat, Kirra sweater, Target tights, Etienne Aigner boot, Forever21 necklace

I am not sure how I feel about this outfit. I wanted to wear fur, but also something knitted and bright. So this is what I came up with. This sweater is so long I can wear it as a dress. I wish I had some chunkier boots to go with this outfit - these are very comfortable, but it feels like they are too structured and shiny for this look, what do you think? I love the color of the tights, mustard hue has been such a hit among fashionistas, and it's a great way to bring some color.
I am headed to work. Christmas is approaching, I can feel it in the air! Hope you guys are as excited about the Holidays as I am!!!
See you later! Thanks for stopping by!

Brown Leather Pants, Blazer and Sequined Clutch

I am wearing H&M blazer, floral blouse old from Walmart, H&M pants, Payless shoes, sequined DIY clutch

I have never worn brown in my life. I thought it did not go well with my complexion. But I was always attracted to it to say the least. There is something very warm and comforting in brown palette, the colors of earth. So I could not resist and bought these leather pants. And then came the jacket, both from H&M. I like the cut it's a bit girly, yet formal, the length permits to wear it as a coat as well - win. I thought the floral shirt went very well with rich brown and a sequined clutch gave it a hint of gold sparkle. It's a bit autumnal, but it's been very fall like here, especially today, still warm, but quite foggy. 

The Holidays are inevitably approaching! My Christmas tree is up! And the presents are wrapped! And most are already sent to their future (lucky) owners!

I wish everybody pre-holiday joy and excitement!
Stat tuned!

Oh, I forgot, it's time to brag now, haha. Just kidding, it's simply two outfits that were on Chictopia's front page again.

Leopard and Fur

I am wearing H&M fur coat, old flared jeans, thrifted Dana Buchman top, gold jewelry- JC Penny, Jennifer Lopez, Forever21, Candies Shoes

I adore these shoes!!!! 

I decided to go a bit retro today with flared jeans. I wore leopard print t-shirt that goes well with the shoes. And, of course, the fur coat! The weather is so lovely, and I got a bit warm, but it's good to have it on me just in case, you never know what might happen..

The outing yesterday was very nice, good grilled food, the fresh air, games and it was just nice not to be at work for once.

I hope everybody is doing well! Are you already done Christmas shopping? We almost got everything on the list for our family yesterday. Now it's time to wrap! Yay! And then Christmas tree decorating, that I have delayed for two  weeks.

 I wish you guys all the best!

School Girl Outfit

I am wearing Divided H&M sweater, Kohl's skirt (old), Forever21 over the knee socks, Payless shoes, Mudd mini satchel

Today I decided to go with a school girl outfit. I just miss school so much! I guess this is how it works, when I was at school, I hoped to graduate sooner, now that I am done with it - I miss it!
So I wore this while running some errands today and now I am headed to a cook out party we have at work, I don't think I am going to keep this outfit, so I'll show you what I wore later. I am so in a hurry, I have to go! Thanks everybody for your kind words, they mean so so so much to me!

Look of the day: French Grammar and Vintage Shorts

I am wearing top - old, vintage shorts, target bag, Nordstrom vest,  vintage hat, old wedges

L'amour - toujours, oh-la-la!!! I haven't worn this top forever since i got it in NY! The french words were of course the main attraction for me so I could not resist! But it is a nu dos, so I chicken to wear it often. But paired with this vest I think it look fabulous. Oh, and if you didn't notice, I have the same old shorts on! I just can't get enough of them! The colour and cut go with so many styles! I accessorized with matching brick red shoes and bag and a vintage hat. Hope you like it! It was super cute and I felt instantly so french! I was never able to get over this everything french obsession ever since I was a child. Guess what's in that bag? My wallet? ID? Cell phone? No! French grammar book - I'll be studying on my break at work today)
It's a silly rainy work day number 7 this week!

Vintage Shorts and Blazer

I am wearing H&M blazer, vintage blouse, vintage shorts, Target tights, Target hat, Forever21 boots, Mudd mini satchel, vintage tie, Forever21 belt

And I am back to vintage basics. I can't get enough of these shorts, they are by far the most worn item in my wardrobe right now, together with this blazer. I think I just love nudes and mustard at the moment! This outfit as you might have noticed is a derivative I posted a bit earlier, I just added and changed some pieces. The hat and the tie are the same color and I think it's a nice touch. I hope you enjoy! I love me some color! Especially the day is so grey and gloomy today, it's so rainy and foggy it makes me sad. I wish everybody a good afternoon. I am heading to work, though I want very much to stay on my comfy couch with a cup of hot chocolate and watch some Christmas movie!
I will talk to you as soon as I can!
