Late night thoughts

Soooo…
It´s late at night and I try to be creative for writing this post, let´s see if it works out. I don´t have actually thoughts dedicated to this outfit, so let´s make the most out of it. This outfit contains grunge boots and sequins, so it is basically my slogan, hahaaaa.

Okay, let´s get started. I am wearing my go to Mango pants and my most facvourite blouse ever. I MEAN, LOOK AT IT. It is so beautiful. I love the Victorian Ruffles combined with the red colour, it´s just perfect. Moreover I am wearing my sequin jacket, which I love as well because I love everything with sequins. My hat is just there to make me look cute hahah.
The shoes- my babies. Those shoes were one of the first grunge inspired pieces I have ever bought. I just remember how proud I felt to wear them and obviously how cool I felt. I still get a boost of confidence when I wear them. They also make a short person like me look taller and believe me; this has a huge effect on your general appearance.

I love grunge and punk style. My biggest inspirations are Vivenne Westwood and Alexander McQueen. Without this source of inspiration, I wouldn´t be the person that I am today. That is the thing about inspiration: it changes you, the way you see things and the way you dress. When this process has become normal, which is likely to happen in times of social media like Instagram where you get an inspiration overload. Believe me, to understand yourself better always question your main source of inspiration because that might be the thing you love the most. Don´t feel under pressure because others find themselves way faster than you. Give yourself time. Without time you won´t develop at all. I did also take a lot of time and I don´t regret any single second of it.

Embroidery love #OOTD

Heyya,

Everywhere you see embroidery right now. It seems like the fashion industry got obsessed with it.  I am right now crazy about flowery or sequin embroidery (Sequin Post is coming very soon:). I don`t really have much to say about this dress or this look, except that flowers in general are an amazing gift of nature and that this dress is just as beautiful as they are.

Due to the fact, that this dress looks very girly, I combined it with my old Vagabond sneakers and my go to bag 🙂

The golden hour

Heyya,

This outfit is inspired by the historic decade of the golden twenties and the indie scene vibe. I mean it is just inspired that doesn’t mean that I have copied a particular item. The headband and the golden details of the dress reminded me really of this. I combined it with a jacket from an independent label and I can`t express in words how much I love it.

I have actually planned to name this post “Coachella-Woodstock in my mind”, which is a song by Lana Del Rey. Honestly, the outfit and the atmosphere in this picture reminded me really of the records` vibe. The record is about a escape from the reality. Today, we all struggle with everything what`s happening in this world. We have all our little escapes from reality, where everything seems to be so free and careless. For some people it is a festival like the Coachella. For me sunsets are (apart from my usual escape places) also a escape. It is seeing the world’s beauty in a calm atmosphere.

However, we all have our little escapes to escape the reality or ourselves, but in fact we wish that we don`t need an escape. The world is so beautiful, why shouldn´t we live in peace together? A question which probably bothers the whole world. Anyway, I love these pictures and their atmosphere (maybe because I love the indie alternative scene haha).

This dress

Heyya,

Long time no see, hahaha. You know, I am obsessed with clothes in general, but I am even more obsessed with dresses. So, in this post I show (as you can see) my current favorite dress. The “current” term, because I don`t really have a all time favorite dress, it changes a lot (I really mean A LOT).

This dress is incredibly beautiful and it is by a brand called “CICI London”. I didn`t buy it directly from them, I found it in the Topshop at the Oxford circus in London. By the way, this Topshop store is more than amazing and it has lots of independent brands in it, so you can spend an eternity there. This dress literally weights nothing due to its light fabric. It is really thin and it feels very light. It also has some kinda tulle fabric at the skirt part (I don`t describe how it looks here, because I am sure you can see it hahah).

This dress is so dreamy, it is so beautiful, and I literally adore it. I wore this at a Lana del Rey concert and it felt more than perfect for this occasion.

Story telling pieces

Heyya,

I would like to start my first Blog series today. It is about “story telling clothing pieces”, so I will show you a piece from my wardrobe, which is associated with a particular memory.

 

So, this dress is by the brand Sister Jane. I don´t own it for a very long time, but it already has a story. First, I went through half London to get to their store to buy this beautiful dress. It was literally love at first sight and I don´t regret any minute of tube struggle, which stole about two hours of time. For me, it was all worth it.

 

Now, we continue to the story. I wore this dress in combination with this Skinnydip bag, when I was alone in Liverpool on a night out. Honestly, I wasn`t really in the mood to go out, so I kinda forced myself to go because for some reason I know that I won´t regret it. Of course, I had no clue where to go at all. Luckily, some “advertising-guy” from a bar told me to go to Mathew street, the street where the Beatels had been born. So I went there. I went into the Cavern club, without knowing what this club is (for all of you who don`t know it as well: the Beatels played there many times). It was literally amazing there. There is always live music and that causes a really cool atmosphere. In the ladies room, a women told me with Liverpoolian accent how stunning this dress is. Anyways, it was my first time to go to a club with live music, and trust me you miss out something if you don`t go there when you are in Liverpool. I also met super cool people there, so I literally don`t regret that I forced myself to do this. Somehow this dress will always remind me of that magical night.

BAG- Skinnydip London
