Today’s post

What can you do with denim and the block heel?

Hello Fashion Lovers:)

I was thinking about practicality…can you be smart about fashion? Can you have one piece of clothing that shapes your whole wardrobe?

Well…let’s see!

I am in love with denim…I’ll be honest and admit that I gave it a go because this year it’s everywhere!

Guess what…I will probably keep denim as one of my favourite styles of all times:)

This week’s fashion post it’s about picking out one or two items from your wardrobe and create endless outfits!

I am sure you all are familiar with outfit building…it’s a terminology used most of the time in fashion retail.

Did you ever thought about how we notice things we like…how we decide to buy that top that we saw in the window display…? It’s all comes down to…outfit building!

We look at fashion differently if it’s put into context…would you notice that green bag on its own, or it’s more appealing because it’s part of an outfit?

The trend brings us a fabric, a style, a cut…we decide how we use that in our advantage:)

For this post my lead pieces are…THE DENIM JACKET…and…THE BLOCK HEEL!

Pick one or two key items from your wardrobe and start outfit building …you will soon realise that you become more smart about what to buy next…that you don’t actually need so many things to look good or even different every day!

Basic tips:

  • Wear what you love but don’t be afraid to try new things
  • I know fashion it’s complicated and not always to our own personal taste…that’s why, re-invent yourself
  • Know your body shape and your limitation…just because it’s in fashion, doesn’t mean you have to wear it
  • Don’t over do it…always keep it simple
  • If you feel good in it…you look good in it too
  • Think outside the box…you might just create the next trend:)

I like to have a few things that I always mix and match with the rest of my wardrobe:)

Think of a jacket you love…yesterday you’ve thought you can only wear it as part of a casual look…but today, you’ve put it next to a dress…and it actually looks quit amazing:)

When it comes down to fashion you need to be selfish…think what looks good on you and not the rest of the world…be smart and practical when you shop…no point in having too many things that you never wear!

In a nutshell….pick the right pieces and wear them more!

Use your favourite items in different styles…look casual and glamorous with the same piece!

Always feel good being you!

‘Keep it simple’


” Fashion should be simple, comfortable and fun “

This week I want to wear comfortable… may that be denim, t-shirt or a jacket, but I want to feel fashionable at the same time:)

I believe that sometimes all we want is to feel relaxed in what we wear…for most of us, that means sporty or jeans and a polo shirt.

What does stop us in having both worlds…comfort and style?

I love to feel comfy in my cloths but at the same time I don’t always want to blend in…I like personality in what I wear:)

What do you think?

Comfort – means different things to each of us!

Usually we think a pair of jeans, a simple top does the job…but we tend to forget that by adding one item, like a jacket, we can build a completely different outfit. Most of  the items we have in our wardrobe are casual…what I want to do today is to show you, that every piece in your closet can be dressed up or dressed down.

A pair of denim is the most common piece we own…it’s fashionable, comfortable and guess what?! It can be very stylish as well. I always loved jackets because they take your look from casual to trendy.

You think just because you wear jeans and t-shirts you don’t follow fashion…you are wrong:)

Denim is the biggest piece on the catwalk this year and a statement t-shirt just adds more glam to it!

Whenever you want to add a bit of style to you comfort…try the jacket…find a colour that brings you out of your comfort zone but at the same time still feels YOU!

You will realise very soon that most of the items you thought to be casual…they can become very easy part of your ‘going out’ outfit or your ‘I feel glam today’!

For me denim still means comfort, but when I dress it up with a sparkly top and a simple jacket, it becomes a totally different story:)

So, take a peak in your closet and start building those outfits that make you feel fabulous and confident!
