Slow Down The Fashion

Lately I’m all about (or trying to be all about) slow fashion rather than high street. For years we were taught it either has to be luxury or cheap and any designer who tried to do something in between – luxury basics, handmade goods, ethical fashion – were doomed. Luckily consumers started turning their faces to the good side, appreciating the value of design and quality for the price they actually deserve, and new wave bloggers and influencers play a big role in this change. I hardly ever enter Zara anymore (I still shop there every now and then, but compared to how much I used to buy before it’s almost nothing), only check H&M for accessories and couple of trendy pieces every season and I don’t even pass by other high street retailers. Now I buy one slow fashion item instead of buying 10 of the knock off and my wardrobe has become so much more refined and of quality lately. One of the hardest parts of shopping slow though is the custom tax …

Spring In My Step

I’ve decided this year, after 4 years of denial and suffering, that I’m going to stop pretending I’m living in a regular winter climate city hence stopped taking photos outside during harsh winter and risk hypothermia or pneumonia (happened once, not kidding), so this is my first non-sponsored outfit post in a long time and it really feels good to be back. It feels good to go out, it feels good to feel my skin filling up with vitamin D again, it feels good to wear my beautiful clothes. Life is good in spring, I can tell you that. .

The Fashion Medley for Vestiaire Collective

My Very Own Vestiaire

I don’t know how many of you spend as much time as me online looking for a designer item that is sold out, from seasons ago, from a limited collection or just looking for a more affordable price but for me, it takes up half my life. Sure, it’s also my job, but I can’t tell you how many hours I lose everyday before eventually finding everything (and I mean EVERY SINGLE THING) on Vestiaire Collective. Case in point, these Vetements cowboy boots for which I scavenged the entire internet for months before finally scoring them on Vestiaire Collective, receiving them within days in its original box and not even a single scratch on it. For those of you who don’t know, Vestiaire Collective is (the world’s best!) marketplace for pre-loved luxury and designer fashion where you can shop the pieces directly from the closets of the world’s most stylish women. Most of the sellers are from Europe which makes the website even more unique and remarkably more fashionable compared to other marketplaces. Every item …

The System

I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of uniforms. I was probably the only girl in high school who was more than content with the dress code (with slight rule breakers of course) and despite my interest in fashion and the constant need to be the first one to try something new as a blogger or always do something different, I’ve always felt more comfortable when I’m wearing my wardrobe staples. That’s probably why when you see me on a regular day I’ll be wearing pretty much the same things: tapered pants, boyfriend jeans, basic t-shirts or tank tops, simple non-stretch maxi dresses, oversized sweaters and my most comfortable pair of shoes. This style formula has never failed me and now we have a brand that’s creating and delivering that formula for us. Introducing EILEEN FISHER and The System ladies and gentlemen. With a focus on 8 core pieces at the heart of the system, EILEEN FISHER wants to show the world we can do more with less, buy fewer pieces and still create endless …

Red Riding Boot

Mark your calendars and celebrate with me every year the day I wore red boots (so close to Christmas which means risking a Santa vibe on top of the fact that I ACTUALLY WORE a vibrant COLOR as part of my main look) because even as I’m writing these words all I can see are the boots and it weirds me out like crazy. It feels good to get out my comfort zone every now and then but I can’t help but imagine this outfit with black boots instead, how are you people wearing colors on top of colors, prints on top of prints and still be that comfortable? Know that you’re truly amazing. You da real MVPs. . White long shirt dress Rodebjer (similar here & here) . Trench coat Lartigent (similar here & here) .
