Huge Winter Haul!

I know, I know, it’s not so typical for bloggers to do hauls, but I thought it’s more easier and funnier for all of us, and here are some reasons!Firstly, I won’t have to buy tons of clothes, and wait for them to arrive to find out they’re not my size! Secondly, you will be able to click to get to the item you want instead of traveling miles and miles to get to the store and find out that the desired thing is not there. So basically I will be picking cool clothes for winter and New Year’s Party, and without any proper introduction, here I go!

ASOS Lightening Print Mini Dress
Get it from asos.com for €62.33 ( be quick , it’s on sale). I personally think it’s so amazing!I love the print, because I love lighting bolts in general. I also like the colors, they’re great for the New Year’s Eve party!
444
ASOS Sweatshirt with Christmas Fairisle Print
Another thing from asos.com, this time for
€34.25 , but hey, what’s Christmas without the ‘traditional’ Christmas Print Sweater?

ASOS Box Pleat Mini Skater Skirt – €38.36   sale ~NOW €26.71

Again, asos.com ( hope I’m not driving you insane with this site, I just like the things and they have resonable prices and great quality ). The skater skirt, as I’ve stated a lot of times, is a must, especially now when you can wear it with some comfy leggings, and especially the red one! You can also inspire from the look in the photo above for the New Year’s Party – The skirt, with a black crop top and stilettos.

Brandy Melville:  Eat sleep embroidery beanie & Haylynn knit beanie
Both from brandymelvilleusa.com, for 22 & 2o $
So the beanie is the latest and the hottest item if you want to have a street style, hipster look, and they’re  very cozy for a cold winter day – we must protect our hair, mustn’t we?

Brandy Melville Ilona Scarf – 35
$
From brandymelvilleusa.com , one of the most usable ( if I can say that) item for winter- the scarf! You have to have at least one, made of wool, and one made of cotton or other materials ( for spring). It’s not the fact that it keeps you warm, but it gives your outfit a stylish and comfy look.
ugugug
UGG Womens Classic Tall – 240   ( I know, I know, it’s pricey)
From uggaustralia.eu ( I suggest you buying from here or from the authorized or official stores, because there are a lot of fake and cheap UGG’s which are made from goat or dog fur and that’s horrendous. I know it’s pricey, but at least you can keep your feet warm all winter and know that you haven’t killed any animal). The UGG’s are most likely the teens’ boots, because lately women are wearing heels even in winter, but they are perfect for that cold winter day. Anyway, they’re not very suitable for rain or snow, as they can get wet very quickly, so you’d better buy waterproof boots for that kind of weather.

Brandy Melville Zip up leather jacket – 55 $
My favorite, the leather jacket! I love it! It gives you that rock and grunge boost you need for an outfit and you can wear it with absolutely everything!
ryhrth
Denim & Supply by Ralph Lauren Longline Plaid Shirt – 116.44
Plaid is, for sure, the season’s trend and a paid shirt is never getting old or out of trend. Especially when you want to get the grunge look that is currently on every catwalk show! Get it from asos.com

So I hope you liked everything I showed you , I wanted to present you some clothes that you could actually wear everyday and not get bored, and something that’s fashionable this season. Sorry about the euro-dollars confusion, you can check out the websites and see the price that’s available for your country. Till next time, happy New Year and Happy Holidays!

Isabel Marant and H&M first impression and review

Hello again! I’m back with another post about the Isabel Marant for H&M collection, which launched yeaterday worldwide and online.
My first impression was… wow. I had mixed feelings about it at first, but once you get to see more of the over 100 pieces of the collection The fashionistas went crazy about it, endless queues awaiting for the opening were in front of every shop yesterday. A day after, a lonely blogger starts reviewing the collection.. So here I go! I absolutely adore the ethnic-rock combination that every girl has to have in her wardrobe! This collection has also men and children clothes, and for a bonus of freshness, try mixing the men items with the women items ( thanks Isabel Marant!) . The children collection has the women items, but smaller. I really think that’s not really suitable, but let’s discuss about the women first! The prints are making me think about the Romanian traditions, the fringes of the cowboys and the textures… of rugs. That’s not a bad thing at all, it just makes this collection more unique. Here are just a few of my favorite items:
image

Probably the most popular item here, the red sweatshirt with a lot of color variations is hot hot hot! This should not miss it, and if I were to pick a single item of the collection, I would have picked this.
image

This beaded jacket really reminds me of Romanian culture, but it’s another must of the collection.
image

The leather pants , available in black and white, are a mix between rock and country- two diffrent styles that make good clothes!
image

I don’t have much to say about this plain tee . It’s the basic thing, stylized here. It’s okay if you don’t want to pay a fortune on a plain white tee but this is a very fashionable one, and you can almost feel Isabel Marant’a style through this.
image

This is the sweatshirt that reminds me of rugs, but it’s a very cosy piece in late fall!
image

The essential blazer, created in the finest way.
image

Last but not the least, these stonewashed jeans complete the rock-themed clothes, created the ethinc way.
What do you think about it? Did you spot something great and suitable for you in this collection?
See you next time. Till then, enjoy the full lookbook here: thanks to vogue

Isabel Marant for H&M

image

So as you probably know, yesterday, the 14th of november, H&M released a capsule-collection in collaboration with Isabel Marant. I’ve managed to get concrete information and I also have personal opinios I’d love to share with you.
Firstly, who is Isabel Marant? She’s a relatively new designer, the clothes she designs being destined mostly for street style-women ( and why not, boys, as Isabel Marant also creates clothes for men).
Since 2004, when H&M collaborated with Karl Lagerfeld, almost every year they’ve been creating collabs with diffrent designers. This year it’s Isabel Marant’s turn. Not known ( and even not agreed) by older fashionistas, Isabel created for this collection , clothes she would like to wear, as she personally stated. She’s mostly known for her wedge shoes , but this time she made a better job, clothes for every taste.
image

Above- Isabel Marant’s wedge shoes, a combination between sneakers and heels.
Some old, respectable designers dislikes Isabel’s style in designing clothes, as she makes not-very-excuisite-clothes. But who cares? This collection was a big hit, as H&M stated yesterday : “it’s probably the most anticipated collection this year”  . Hurry up, the collection is most likely to be sold out in the neareast H&M shop, but you can still find some pieces online, at hm.com or ebay.com ( be careful, though, as some pieces on ebay may or may not be genuine).
Hoping I haven’t bored you, get ready for my next Isabel Marant for H&M posts!

TARTAN

 Hi guys! How have you been? I wish you a happy fall and a great day! Firstly, I would like to apologize for not being here in a while, but I somehow managed to post outfits so you won’t feel so alone, but  I’ve been having a lot of exams lately and I still do, but I’ll try to post regularly.
I guess you’ve seen that the blog has a new template, surprise! Hope it’s better and you’ll like it , and I’ve also added a “contact me” page, where you’ll see my other works and email.
Now let’s get back to work! In this post I’ll be talking about TARTAN, this fall’s hottie! Everybody’s been releasing tartan collections ( or things) so a tartan bag or skirt ( like in the old school days, right?) is a must! Some designers like Moschino or Celine ( who actually mixed some colors and got some variations from the classic black-white-red) did collections created entirely of tartan – it might sound creepy to wear a tartan top with a tartan jacket, with tartan pants and tartan shoes! Don’t forget the bag 🙂 Well, when fashion asks for something, you have to do it, right? Just joking. You can either wear a tartan jacket over a black dress, or that classic tartan skirt mixed with a cozy coat.
My personal favorite is the Moschino collection. It’s incredible! The whole collection is based on horse riding-themed clothes are there are plenty of tartan items to choose from! The highlights were the bold black russian-like hats, with bold golden jewelery and the ‘M’ from Moschino beign stylized on the clothes! Other great collections are Phillip Lim with cool grunge clothes,  or Dolce and Gabanna featuring golden crowns.

Till next time, have a nice ‘tartan’ day!
