Instamix #1

I'll be honest with you. Up to some point, I kept thinking that the whole Instagram craze and "instamix" blog posts are kinda embarrassing.

Then, I bought a new phone and got addicted to Instagram myself. Oh the irony!

And since I've been unable to make an outfit post for quite a long time already, I decided to reconsider the idea of the instamix blog posts; after all, I do take lots of photos each day and find some of them aesthetically pleasing, so why wouldn't I showcase them a bit more? Also, this is a good opportunity for you to see that I REALLY dress the way I show here on the blog... and a chance to get to know me better, too!

So, get ready, since I'm probably gonna turn it into a series of posts!

Oh, and while we're at shameless self-promotion, I just wanted to let you know that I started publishing the second chapter of my comic #DCDNC online. Check it out on deviantArt or Tumblr!

So British

Long time no see, blah blah, not really my fault. We can only blame busy schedules, both mine and my photographer. Anyway, we've finally managed to meet up for a photoshoot and here's the result. The inspiration for this outfit came, of course, from the classic British elements such as the said school uniform, Dr Marten's shoes, tartan print and overall retro/preppy feeling.This is my favourite girly outfit these days. I've been wearing this set so many times and I'm not bored of it yet, which may or may not mean that I've safely parked back on the "school uniform" spot of my style. It seems like a longer break from fashion blogging means lots of positive changes in my case. I'm leaning more into classic, polished uniform-like looks than crazy hipster student ones like I did before.
Also, I wanna remind you that I'm very, very active on my Instagram! I'm mainly showing my meals there (I'm a huge clean eating and paleo enthusiast) but I thought you'd like to see it, too, haha. Also, be sure to check out my webcomic - I'll be posting the second capter soon!
One more thing - I have lots of style-related things going on in my mind, so I'm thinking about posting more than just outfit posts here. Let me know if you'd like to read what I've got to say, guys!

Old-Fashioned

You know that I'm a total vintage lover, so - to prove this statement - there are so many old-fashioned things in this outfit. The base here is a bright red coat. It has a military feel to it thanks to the uniform cut that I decided to break down with cute elements, like this bear-eared bowler hat (which is just a burgundy version of the hat featured two posts ago), knitted scarf and gothic lolita platform shoes. The outfit hidden under the coat starts from an edgy black shirt with spiked collar. I softened it again - this time with a lace-trimmed skirt and tights with visible seams, which instantly bring the pinup feel. You might have noticed the mockingjay emblem tied to my bag... Yes, despite the vintage theme going on, this is the outfit I decided to see the brand new Hunger Games movie in - a story set in distant future. Oh, the irony!

Wannabe Uniform

Ever since I started school as a little kid, I've been dreaming of a school uniform. No kidding. My parents, who had to wear uniforms during their whole education, tried to convince me that it was more of a burden than pretty outfit, but let's be honest - how can you resist the cuteness of a shirt + tie + sweater with a coat of arms combo? I've been sporting vintage uniform-like outfits through my whole high school - university transition and now I seem to be leaning towards this kind of style again. Let's hope I stick to it for longer.

The Fashion Language


Hi guys! Not so long ago, I’ve been asked by Smartling, a translation service company that is able to translate website content into multiple languages for many famous brands, to write a post on my very own “fashion language”. The New York Fashion Week is just around the corner. The event, gathering fashionistas from all over the world, will be a wonderful showcase of many trends unique to the particular parts of the globe. That’s why Smartling decided to  celebrate the multicultural aspect of fashion by asking bloggers to describe their “fashion language” or, to put it simply, the way trends from various countries “translate” into their signature style.

You all know that I’m a freak for some languages and cultures. I’ve been proclaiming my love for Russia and Great Britain countless times already. Let’s not forget about Japan and South Korea, too – the Japanese phase might have faded a bit through the years, but, being a dedicated K-pop fan, I’m very up-to-date with what’s in fashion in South Korea. What’s even better, I try to stay away from the blatant ethnic elements that might seem to tackle the cultural appropriation issue (hello, hours spent on Tumblr!) and get my style fix from trends that have naturally emerged in particular subcultures as time passed.

So, are you ready for a quick journey around the world, accompanied by my very own illustrations?

Totally Girly Stuff

See? I told you I'm taking a longer break! My photographer totally deserved it, though. Lots of stuff happened through the last month, so I wasn't in a mood for a photoshoot, either; flannels, skinny jeans and minimal amount of accessories might be comfy and suitable for my smart-and-quirky style, but definitely not outfit post-worthy. Yep, it was that kind of dark, stressfull time when you're not really into wearing anything fancy. It's still not really over, but I'm slowly getting better.
Long time no see, totally girly stuff. I wonder how it is even possible that I haven't shown you this dress up to this moment. It's one of those emergency pieces; nothing to wear? Just take a preppy dress and throw a cardi on it! Anyway, there are two other stars here. One of them is this bear-eared hat (I prefer to see those bumps as horns, though!) that I've found in the darkest corners of Ebay and instantly fell in love with it (I ordered a dark red version, too). I have to be one of the very few Polish fashionistas owning this kind of hat, if not the only one, don't you think so? And I don't even consider myself as a hipster anymore... Well, back to the topic - the other star here is a pair of shiny black oxford shoes that I don't wear very often, but absolutely love them. It was about time to show them on the blog! Even though I finished high school over 4 years ago, this outfit brings that kind of a "back to school" feel that seems to be very appreciated in the blogosphere these days, haha.

Sweetheart

I felt like those Sinsay girls, except for the fact I'm definitely not a skinny sweet sixteen. You know what I'm talking about - wrapping a glamorous one piece into sporty items. This was the case with this lovely sweetheart-neckline type romper that I got from Lookbookstore.co. I've been dreaming of something like this since I've seen a similar one in PSY's Gentleman video (worn by the super sexy Ga In, of course) but... once I got, I had no idea how to style it so that it'd be suitable to wear casually. Believe me, I tried to pair it with an elegant red blazer you've seen a few posts ago and my favourite red heels that I never really wear, but I don't think I'd be able to put up with such an outfit for a whole day (the photoshoot was to be done after work). Being glamour is such a burden, why can't I look quirky and whimsical instead... Oh wait, I can. And I do. Working in advertising offers so much freedom when it comes to everyday fashion.
