DENIM ON DENIM

    

There is something about denim, and I guess these are the pieces, which stay in our closets for many years. Classic, cool and never goes out of style. Well, maybe particular styles, but not the fabric. In fact denim is the most unsustainable material in textile industry, so remember, when you want to get rid of it, fix it, remake it and bring it back to life!

Anyways, I did not wear jeans that often this winter so I kind of missed that, and now I can’t get enough of it. So, denim on denim is my new favourite look, which has been on the streets for years. Some would say a big NO to this kind of combination, however if you gonna do it right you will end up with a smart and casual look. Just remember to mix different tones, let’s say dark blue jeans with light blue shirt or jacket. If you have the same color pieces, try to add accessories, like bright belt or scarf, to give a bit more contrast.

If you want the same look as mine, I have to disappoint you since my denim pieces are vintage. However, that’s not the point! Check what you have in your wardrobe, and play with different tones and colors. I am sure you gonna find some nice styles and will end up with beautiful outfits.

KHAKI

 

For the last few days, I was super busy with some graphic design projects, so I did not have any time to edit any pictures and spend time on my blog. Finally I am back on track, and it feels lovely.

So let’s talk a bit about this color that was a big hit in 2000’s. All of us know that fashion trends repeating itself every 10-15 years, and I remember how my wardrobe was occupied by khaki at that time. Happy to see that same color tones are back on the fashion runways, since I am a big fan of it. You might say that it is more for fall and winter due to it’s darkness, however specially in the summer khaki looks so beautiful on sun kissed skin, and you probably already know that. In fact, you can combine and mix it with any color and will never fail, so I guess I would say, it is the most easy color to wear. And how about a pair of oversize khaki pants? That was super trendy in the 2000’s right?  And seems that it is on the way back. Well, the best thing about it, is the casual look and of course comfort!

COLD DAYS

I am pretty sure we all went through spring ‘syndrome’ already, when all you want is to look nice. When you want to get out and enjoy the weather and feel beautiful by feeling the spring in the air. Winter wardrobe, that is something you don’t even want to look at, and you are rushing to pack it away as soon as you have time for it. However, this time of the year often can be quite tricky and some unexpected weather changes might not be very satisfying. So, what to do when the temperature goes down and reminds us more of the winter weather, even though it is still spring? That is quite irritating because very often we don’t know what to wear… Well, I would suggest go for something warm, but fresh! Something that will keep you cozy and comfy but still very summerish. A light bomber jacket, or pastel trench coat could create a lighter and more outgoing style. You could also add layers and mix some different spring prints, for making it even more eye catching. And don’t forget sunglasses, even though it is cold outside, you need to protect your beautiful eyes and complete your stylish look!

CLASSIC WHITES

It’s about time to take out some summery white pieces from our wardrobe. Most of us, would switch everyday blue denim look into white during this time of the year. These days, when we look at a crazy street style and all fashionistas, there are almost no excuses for not owning a pair of white jeans in the closet, since there are no rules anymore on how to wear it. I would call it a classic item, that we should have in our collection. The ones I have on are actually quite old and I never get tired of it. Anyways, some would say that styling can be a bit tricky, since you need to be careful with mixing right colors. White on white? Pastels with white? Not necessarily, make a contrast.. Go for dark or black, and combine it with some accessories if you feel like. If you are afraid of too girly look, make it a bit edgy by wearing a pair of masculine boots or belt. Play with your style and have fun!

HEALTHY PLEASURE

Hello Monday! To begin the new week I wanted to share this amazing recipe that I tried out in the weekend. This might look like a guilty pleasure, but that is the healthiest home made vegan chocolate you can find on earth, containing only three main ingredients. And oh my god it is so good! I am not going into details and the benefits of each ingredient I used, but I can tell you, this is no sugar and dairy free snack or dessert. So you don’t need to worry about upcoming bikini season.

I used:

1/2 cup liquid coconut oil

1/2 raw cacao

4 table spoons of maple syrup

Just mix all three ingredients, and use your fantasy if you want to add some nuts, dry fruits, berries or whatever you have. I added some almonds, dry raspberries and goji berries. Put it into baking pan (with baking paper), and freeze for about 30-40 min. Cut it into small pieces and you have it. Enjoy!

BLACK SPRING

        

You know I absolutely love wearing black, and that is not the color most of us would go for, when the sun is calling outside. Well,  there are no rules in fashion so why to avoid black during spring. The most important thing is how you feel inside and what makes you comfy, and remember any piece of clothing will look adorable on the shining soul.. Just be happy and you will glam like a star girl! Anyways, to make your ‘black’ outfit look more interesting, you can choose playing with fabrics, just make sure they differ in textile composition. Check your wardrobe, and I am sure you will find many different garments in the same black color. My leather jacket is my favourite item for spring and I don’t even need to think too much what I have to wear, it matches with anything. That’s my statement piece for sure, and it is perfect for this season or chilly summer days. Don’t forget accessories as well, since small details can make a big difference. A pair of cool sunglasses could be perfect choice. But if you have your own favourite statement items, go for it, as I already said.. the most important thing is how you feel inside! Wish you a lovely day my dear ladies, enjoy spring!

COLOR TIME




When we feel the spirit of spring most of us want to go for more colorful and of course light pieces. If you love long jackets, go for a colorful one, and you going to make a statement this season. Long silhouette jackets were on the trends for the last few years, however most of it in very neutral colors. I was looking for the perfect one in the vintage stores for a long time, every time ending with size issue. So, I am quite surprised that this spring you can find so many colorful pieces in the stores. The one, I am wearing matches perfectly with my new vintage belt, which I love love love…! Found it in the second hand store couple of days ago for ‘no money’. Because of its cute and colorful badge goes well with everything. Unique items always makes me happy, going for a hunt very soon since my vintage shopping list is growing..

BEAUTIFUL SILICONE

In todays world most of us are more concerned about the environment, our health and surrounding. Society and media are the biggest influencers of our behavior. Healthy way of living becomes not only a trend but a lifestyle. Looking trough the history, ages by ages the world is becoming more clever. We are all familiar with organic or natural foods, and that became a normal buying procedure depending on our choices. But what about the materials, the equipment we use, the clothes that we wear? Is that something we seriously consider when we do shopping? 
Progressive silicone technology is becoming our future and the material is already used on fashion textiles. Going back to my Paris trip, I am happy I was bale to meet a high fashion textile engineer and designer Tzuri Gueta, who has found a great proportion between art and science. Getting familiar with the brand, gave a clear picture that technology and unusual materials can be combined into beautiful fashion pieces. After successful introduction of his ideas, silicone became Gueta’s signature material. The designer creates beautiful hand made jewelry and home decoration accessories by using technique of blowing silicone material into lace. The brand collaborates with Parisian Haute Couture houses in order to design original textiles, jewelry and ornaments. High fashion brands such as Chanel, Givenchy, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Dior Clarisse Hieraix, Stephane Rolland and Yiquing Yin are the main collaborators of the company. 
I am absolutely in love with his accessories, so if you are visiting Paris soon, you should definitely go and check their cozy shop.
