City Witch

We still have a long way to go before Halloween, but don't you think that I look a bit like a modern witch here? I've got long hair, I'm wearing a big hat and lots of black, and I do have my own magical artefact that you're going to see a few photos below. The level of sass is also appropriate. 

Lately I've been obsessing over black-and-white stripes, be it on home decor, accessories or, in this case, clothes. I managed to get a few nice pieces with this kind of print, and this shirt is a new highlight of my wardrobe. I guess it adds a bit of a chic feeling to the outfit.

Last, but not least: the book-shaped bag. I've been waiting for the opportunity to show it here for SOOO LONG. I do have some more ideas on how to incorporate it in my sets, including some adorable librarian-like boyish ones, however, this outfit was just a perfect opportunity to introduce it. Apart from fitting into the witchy theme, it contributed to the golden accent concept, together with my collar, watch and new huge sunglasses.

#ootd recap: 05.09.2016 - 09.09.2015

Hi there! As I mentioned recently, I spent a couple of days at the seaside. The mood there was really completely different than what I'm used to - I am definitely a city person, so the easy-going atmosphere near the sea was quite a shock to me. What is really shocking, though, is what this change has done to my style! The outfits I wore were just as relaxed as I were, but then, they still maintained that trendy K-pop flare... or that's how I see it, haha. I decided to took a photo of the illustration this time instead of scanning it, since my scanner is slooowly dying (after 12 years...) and my new phone seems to have a surprisingly good camera!

  • Monday: I threw this beautiful marine-themed bomber jacket on a striped tee and sweatpants base. Then, I added a big hat and creepers and I was ready to travel with style.
  • Tuesday: something I wore for my first actual walk through the seashore: a simple dress with a flannel on and some edgy details.
  • Wednesday: I got these thin faux leather suspenders not so long ago and haven't really learnt how to pin them onto my pants so that they look good yet, but they work just fine with skirts! Also, I love mixing leopard print with red tartan print, I should do it for a photoshoot someday.
  • Thursday: the outfit from the previous post, but with a bomber jacket on top. It turned out completely unnecessary though, as they day was super hot :(
  • Friday: this time, I mixed the sweatpants with a simple oversized T-shirt, but the hat and the creepers still made this look interesting.

Sunday is for sweatpants

I just got back from my last summer trip this year and mentally, I'm still not quite in the big city realm. The seaside made me forget about my usual skinny jeans or just any pants with zippers and/or buttons - I switched them all for this pair of sweatpants that, I must admit, looks pretty classy with a wide brim hat and a heavy wristwatch. Plus, the pictures were shoot on Sunday, and we all know that Sundays are for wearing sweatpants all day.

The thing is, it's about 10°C hotter here anyway, so loose clothes are the only option to survive... this, and lots of iced lattes and lemonades (like the one that I've got as a prop for this shoot. So sour, yum!). 

Yes, I kind of don't have that much to say this time, but the post wouldn't be complete without mentioning this super cute T-shirt I've bought recently. As flannels are not an option during this kind of weather, I opted for some lighter tops and that's how I noticed that I lack a bit in the tees department. Sure, I do have some good thrifted ones, but I've seen this one while shopping for sweatpants and took it to the fitting room without much thinking. I do not expect it to last very long, as it isn't exactly top quality, but then - I've been wearing it nearly non-stop during last weeks, which of course requires washing it every other way with this heat wave outside, and it's still intact, so... I may be wrong.

I'm wearing an H&M hat, Sinsay sunglasses, tee & sweatpants, a SIX watch and a choker worn as a bracelet & creepers that I bought on Ebay.

Drink Your Milk

Summer is officially over, but here I am with the last proper summery outfit. This time, I built the whole look around its centerpiece: my new bag in a shape of a retro milk carton. It was much smaller than I expected, so it worked pretty well as a cute little accessory to something much more sugary than what you're used to see here on the blog - both theme- and colour-wise.

Now you can see the outfit as a whole. Whoah! A girly post with PANTS! This pair makes me look a lot curvier than I really am, but it doesn't really matter; it has the attitude that I expect from my clothes and gives a chic 60's flare to the otherwise candy-like outfit. Still, the set missed a strong accent, so I pinned a pretty brooch (that I got from SammyDress.com) underneath my collar.

Finally, let's talk about the main piece of this photoshoot: the purse. As I already said, it turned out to be tiny, but hey - I usually use it as an organiser for small stuff in a big tote bag anyway. It works out really well, since it's really quite stiff and solid (so it doesn't get squished under the crapton of things I carry around). And don't even get me started on the super cute print on the front (the sides contain funny Engrish text that I'm not going to share... or maybe I will?). Which reminds me - the new school year has just started for some of you, so stay healthy and remember to always drink your milk.

I'm wearing a New Look straw hat, a thrifted cardigan, shirt and pants, no-name sandals, a SIX watch, Crossbody Bag With Milk Box Shape and Canvas Design and Round Embellished Black Bowknot Shape Women's Brooch from SammyDress.com.

Secret Garden

Colour-wise, this whole post belongs more to the fall season, but the truth is that it was shot in the first half of July. The whole background also isn't what it seems to be. If you thought this is some kind of a secluded green getaway spot... you were wrong. Actually, these are some unattended bushes and an abandoned building right behind my workplace, but y'know, as usual, Klara pulled off her staple magic trick with her camera that makes every place look amazing - in this case, like a lush secret garden. What a magician.

That day, I came to work wearing this k-pop-ish set and long wig. Somehow, this unusually feminine version of myself got a very warm welcoming among my workmates, which made me a very happy person, since I'm actually a bit hesitant when it comes to showing my female self to the world. But then, just look at the confidence radiating from this outfit - a bright hat, glamorously long hair, a sporty dress paired with a flashy choker, fishnet tights... A simple backpack (that is yet another gift from SammyDress.com and, so far, the most durable one - I've been wearing it almost daily) served both as a match to the warm tone of the hat and a useful accessory - I swear, I packed A LOT inside.

Riiiight, the high-tops. This must be the first time you see me wearing sport shoes, but buying them was a must - my ankle got bitten by a spider and thus was in a bad need of anything that would firmly support my foot (all the footwear I own lacks in this department) so that I could walk at all. I swear, I was dreaming of a pair like this for a long time, since high-tops are the most k-pop shoes I can imagine. I was just waiting for the right moment to switch into these from my usual oxfords/creepers. Thank you, Mr. Spider.

The promised birthday photoshoot didn't work out due to the reasons I described on my fanpage, but I still have a ton of photos taken before the accident (right now I can't even do any eye makeup). This one features a long wig, a sweet denim dress and a straw hat - all of this makes a well-rounded girly summer look. What? Have you really thought that the title was a pun on the glasses' shape...?

The dress is the best charity shop find from my recent UK trip. It's a perfect fit, which is actually very rare if your silhouette is basically a reversed triangle (a nice thing when I do boy looks, not very nice if I go for something more fem). Apart from that, it's also very light and flattering. What's not to love?

Another pretty thing I brought from the UK: this tiny mirror pendant. Yes, it's an actual mirror, not a fake blurry one for dolls. Somehow, I thought that the best way to show it was to do some symbolic one-eye gesture that you sure know if you're into conspiracy theories. I am.

This little woven treasure is another bag I got from SammyDress. This time, they nailed it: it's solid and made with great attention to the detail. I refrained from showing you the inside of it (the amount of medical stuff I carry in my bags might be considered a bit of a sensitive content, haha), but the lining is made of cotton and has a pretty floral print. So, so cute!

Sea Baby

Look! It's an actual OUTFIT POST. No way! After all those #ootd recaps, it was about time to show you some photos, especially since Marta the University Friend upgraded her camera AND I've got a ton of pretty bags from SammyDress.com to brag about. Plus - I bought a new pair of very basic sandals that allow me to put together pretty boyish summer outfits (all of my sandals so far have been way too girly for that!)... and well, this is exactly what today's look is.

These days the only thing in my mind has been the fact that in a couple of weeks I'll see the Polish seaside for the first time in 10+ years. That's awesome, as the sea aesthetic is very close to my heart and I'm proving it with this set. Starting from the straw hat and teal hair, through the anchor-printed navy shirt and bright shorts, finishing with a pair of simple beach sandals. This time, I ditched the eyeliner because a). it's too damn hot to do the whole face, b). it just gave the whole look some extra androgyny points.

Now, onto something special: a school uniform-style backpack from SammyDress. The thing is, this bag had been on my wishlist for ages. After the store's representative contacted me, I went through the available items and spotted THIS. Yay! So, for the pros: it's pretty sturdy, looks solid, and you can pack A LOT inside. Also, it fits perfectly into my style (just wait for all those fall outfits I'll mix it into). The cons: the bag's handle broke after a week of testing it. I'll fix it of course (I'm using a makeshift solution right now), but it still made me soooo damn sad. Another thing is that the inside zipper seemed pretty fragile to me from the very beginning - and I was right, it also broke pretty soon, so I'll need to have it fixed too. All in all, the style is perfect, but it could've been made better.

That's all for today, but as I said - you can expect lots of new outfit posts, since I want to squeeze as much as I can from this short summer break. As for now, I can tell you that my birthday is coming at the end of this week, so yeah, just wait for a special celebratory photoshoot!

I'm wearing: a New Look porkpie straw hat, a thrifted shirt, shorts & belt, no-name sandals, a SIX watch and Vintage Women's Satchel With Metal and Embossing Desing from SammyDress.com
