Smooth Sailing

  
 
I was at my sister’s the other day walking her new puppy, American bulldog named Sky, aka the cutest little thing, aka traffic stopper J. So I thought I would take few pictures of my outfit. It is again a more casual outfit comfortable for a pretty chilly spring day. For a moment I thought it was a fall and not a spring day.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Jeans and sweatshirt H&M, boots, snake bracelet and purse Ebay, earrings old, ring (silver) Aldo, ring black/silver old, watch Swatch, leather jacket 10 years old Le Chateau, rabbit fur vest 7 years old
 
Now, one of my favourite things about this outfit is this purse. It is a look-alike Channel bag but it is not a knock off. Don’t waste money on cheap knock offs! They look exactly like that, knock off. Your better options are look-alike purses. All the stores now, from designer to the ones catering to a more regular folk are making these look-alike purses. One such example is Town Shoes with their Red Carpet collection. One that I really love now is a Celine bag that is definitely not in my budget and I have found a few similar ones that I really like. Channel was another one. I found this one on Ebay. It’s made of genuine leather.  I find better deals on these types of purchases on Ebay. When searching Ebay, make sure you type in genuine leather in your search. Also make sure you check several sellers for the best price (consider the shipping too). Ensure to check out measurements too!! Measure twice, buy once! Winners is an amazing place for great leather purses too. What are your thoughts on this? Where do you like to buy purses?

  1. I love this look. What about the jacket? Where do you recommend we look for similar styles?

    1. Leather is very in now so you can pretty much get it anywhere, all shapes, styles and textures. I would not be afraid to invest in a good quality leather jacket as you will wear it for years to come. As for the vest, if you ever travel to eastern Europe in the winter you can find great deals :) But a cheaper solution are thrift/vintage clothing stores. This way no new animals were hurt :) I bought several fur coats in great shape. You can make them into a vest. But I have seen vests as well. Good luck shopping!

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

How to Stay Warm in the Tricky Spring Weather

Jeans Zara, boots Forever 21, blouse Forever 21, jacket Mango (old), scarf Aldo, sunnies Ray-Ban, bag Louis Vuitton (with my own chain strap), gloves H&M
As the sun is out again and the weather doesn't require thick layers of clothing, I get to get out more out and about the city. The spring is the time when I walk the most, sometimes for hours. It also helps with the few winter pounds heheh. Though long walks require comfort, I still like to wear a cute little outfit. You may think how are heeled boots comfortable, but to be honest, I get more easily tired walking in flats then in heels. Granted, for these long walks I opt for a more chunky heel and a shoe with a strong foot support, rather then a thin stiletto heel. 
I recently purchased these Forever 21 booties and decided they were going to be the piece around which the outfit is built. With me, the outfit builders are usually the shoes haha. And though it was a nice spring day, layers were still a must. I layered a soft t…

Instagram Roundup

I haven't posted much lately and now I'm on vacation for another week or so, so no new posts are expected before I return. I wanted however to share with you a few of my favourite pictures from my Instagram account. Few more pictures have been posted since but you will have to go to my Instagram account to see more.

The Best Blazer. Period.

Blazer Premonition (FigJam.To), dress White by Vera Wang, sandals (Winners), belt Express
Today's outfit was not intended to be shared on the blog, but rather just on my Instagram. It was shot (you can see the quality of the pictures) with a phone camera in a prompt 2 minute photo shoot, as I was running late for a weeding. But I was soooooo excited by this blazer that I had to share it here as well. I had too many pictures that I liked and I could not show them all on Instagram, otherwise people would un-follow me for spamming them hahahaha. 
I got this blazer delivered this same day and it fit perfectly with the dress I had chosen to wear to the event. It is from a website called FigJam.To which specializes in Australian designers. I took one look at this gorgeous piece and I HAD to have it. How amazing is the detailing on the back? Perfect to show off your dress...or your derrier when you pair it with some tight jeans....It's beautifully tailored. A perfect boyfriend blaze…
