Brushstrokes

Brushstroke print top H&M (similar here & here) // khakis StyleNanda (similar here & here) // white pumps with black captoe Zara (similar here & here) Hey guys, for those of you who have been – trying to – comment on my posts for the past couple of weeks but couldn’t see it on the page or get a reply from me: all of your comments were in the spam folder for some unknown reason, so sorry about that. I fished them all out and hopefully it won’t happen again so comment away, I always love to hear what you think! .

Vested

Ivory tailored vest H&M (similar here & here) // black camisole top Topshop (similar here & here) // black jersey asymmetrical wrap  skirt Zara (similar here & here) // black sandals Zara (similar here & here) BTW forget about the vest; I’ve found a magical recipé to (looking like you have) long, lean legs. You take one ounce of an asymmetrical wrap skirt that covers one of your legs all the while baring the other one all, add a drop of drape detail to prevent the stretchy jersey fabric from looking tacky, season with a summer vest if you have wide thighs like mine and serve with an elongating pair of pumps or sandals. Fair warning: it’s gonna be hard to go back to flats after this. .

Chunk of Wood

Crop top with asymmetric front Front Row Shop (similar here) // cropped wide leg trousers Front Row Shop (similar here & here) // brown wooden wedge sandals Zara (similar here & here) Those heels are my most impulse buy of all time and it wasn’t even an online sale – I saw them, loved them, bought them without even thinking if I can pair them with something (have a general problem with brown) or if they are comfortable enough. Two years later they are still one of my favorites, going well with everything and actually more comfortable than most heels. I say, always invest in chunks of wood. .

Ctrl Alt Stripe

Striped cropped shirt Stylenanda (similar here & here) // black denim slit skirt Cheap Monday (similar here & here) // black slingback high heel sandals ASOS (similar here & here) The weird pun is for my strongly Altuzarra S/S 2014 inspired outfit formed with the most comfortable striped cropped shirt that goes with everything and officially the most flattering midi slit skirt for a short woman. Classy but still elongates the legs and not too 9 to 5 civil servant. .

Freakin’ Steals

Black persian lamb coat Vintage (similar here & here) // white flared top Zara (similar here & here) // gold chain necklace Topshop (similar here) // faux pony hair booties Choies (similar here & here) // sunglasses Spitfire In this week’s episode of freakin’ steals we have the vintage black persian lamb coat with gold buttons (one that was in my dirtiest shopaholic dreams since I encountered that Emerson Fry coat that I totally couldn’t afford) in excellent condition which makes me come closer to the answer of the age old question: do I ever need to buy new, expensive coats where I can find fantastic (most of which are fur) stuff for a fraction of a price in this shrine called Canada?
