Back to Basics – Fashion Haul

As you may have noticed from my last post I have done a bit of shopping in the past weeks and it didn’t stop with beauty and make-up. When I go shopping I am usually very instinctive and I end up buying eccentric items forgetting about the basics therefore I took advantage of the sales for buying basic clothes. Firstly, I decided to do some online shopping on Asos because I didn’t find anything interesting on physics shops. I read on internet people praising about Ridley High Waist Ultra Skinny Jeans so I bought a pair of black ones in Petite. I am a quite short girl so it’s difficult for me to find jeans or pants that fit me good without shortening them and the Petite lines that some brands as Topshop or Asos do are life saviour. Also, I chose Kimmi Shrunken Boyfriend Jeans in mid wash vintage and a Soft Casual Shirt in blue. The two jeans have a completely different fit but I love both: Ridley jeans wrap my legs perfectly …

You Can Leave Your Hat On

If you usually stroll on Internet you may have noticed that the world has been affected by a fedora mania. There is always a type of hat on trend: we had bowler hats then beanies but I definitely prefer the most recent one because of the rock vibe a fedora hat can give to every outfit. I have seen lots of celebrities, bloggers or singers males and females wearing fedoras according to their styles and no matter if you want to wear it on the beach or during a rainy day because there will be a type that matches your needs. I put my hands on two black fedoras in the past months and I’ve been searching for a white version but I didn’t find one I liked enough that wasn’t extremely expensive. Don’t worry my research won’t stop until I will find it – I am scary, I know. If you want to buy a fedora but you can’t do a splurge with a Borsalino then Asos, Topshop,  Urban Outfitters and H&M have great substitutes. Oh, …

Zara haul

In the past two months I’ve had some special events and -of course- I needed new clothes. Also I have been loving the last Zara collection so it happened that I made a big splurge in there. 1. Oversized denim vest – 39.95 EUR | I own slighlty oversized shirts and blazers but they are usually quite minimalist. Following the new grunge wave, I decided to go for this extremely oversized vest – especially for my tiny figure – and  every time like it makes me feel like I am living in the 90’s. 2. T-shirt with pocket – 19.95 EUR | Who doesn’t need a good white T-shirt? I am quite demanding when it comes to T-shirts because I feel like they have to be soft on the skin, not too stiff or see-through and this one has all the requirements. 3. Wide trousers with belt – 59.95 EUR | I bought these pants for a job interview and I paired them with a white silky top. I am not as tall as the model and, despite it’s a con most of the times, in this …

What’s in my bag?

The ‘What’s in my bag?’ tag is one of the most popular tags on youtuber and blogs so I decided to make it myself too. I included my most used bag and it’s a very cheap but chic one from Zara; for the daytime I prefer a spacious bags like this one so I can carry around every item I need. The first thing I put in my bag is definitely my inseparable iPhone 5 and right now its cover is the Kate Spade Le Pavillion case. Asos Wayfarer sunglasses_ I bought them last year and I love how they fit my face shape, even better than the original sunglasses from Ray-Ban. Tod’s wallet_ This wallet is quite old and dirty but its taupey colour is a classic. Daily Life Notebook_ I purchased this notebook while back in Shanghai and I can’t know which brand it is from but it’s the most useful organizer and has also a plain section for notes. Canon Ixus 127 HS_ this compact camera was a present and although it’s …

About black ankle boots

Yesterday, while I was walking home, a heel of my boots has broken. My boots, my ankle boots, my black ankle boots. One of my favourite black ankle boots. Then I realised I have way too many black ankle boots – flat, heeled, cut-out, preppy, edgy – and I have been wearing nothing but that type of shoes for the past few months. May I call that obsession? Maybe yeah, but they are my Linus’ blanket for the autumn-winter and they match perfectly with any outfit. Those are a few items I might wear: My broken friends will be repaired in a short time but there’s a major problem: the impending spring. What I am going to wear when will be too hot for my black ankle boots? The new trend is slip on sneakers: we will see if they will be able to win a place in my heart and to replace the black ankle boots.
