New in: Autumn Picks

c600x543 New in: Autumn Picks

It has been a while, as usual, but life just keeps getting in the middle and I totally neglect my blog. But I like to post things that are relevant to me, and I prefer to write when I’m in the mood, instead of an obligation, so there you have it.

I’ve been “behaving good” lately when it comes to shopping, I mean… I just bought a car, so my shopping addiction had to be tamed. But Autumn is here, as well as the cold and rain, so I finally gave in and bought four things:

  1. Too Faced Palette – this was totally a splurge, because I had never spent so much money on a makeup item before. But I wanted to buy a neutral palette for some time now, one that I would use all the colors in it, either in day look or night. And this was my pick, I loved all the colors and decided to splurge. I bought it online, I’ll review and swatch it here once I have it.
  2. If you follow my blog or know me in real life, you’ll know how much I love to show some leg, summer and winter, no shame here. These are neutral grey/black, with pockets, they fit perfectly and go well with pretty much everything.
  3. It was love at first sight, the camel cardigan. I love this color, and I wanted a camel coat, pretty much like Kim K uses, but since I live in a semi-tropical weather island, it would be a waste of money because we rarely wear coats around here, and I already have enough of them in my closet anyway. So, the alternative was this cardigan, and it looks even better in real life. Can’t wait to wear it with black skinny jeans and a white tee.
  4. It looks like a dress, but it’s actually a playsuit. It’s black, deep V-neck, medium sleeves… what can go wrong with this staple piece? This is one of those pieces that you can style it with fancy high heels and a statement accessory, or with a denim jacket and sneakers. Don’t you love comfortable and versatile neutral pieces like this?

I promise that I will try to post more, and share more (looks, photos, reviews…). Sometimes it’s just hard to find inspiration to write, or to take a decent photo of my look, or life happens. But November is here, and I’ll definitely try to be consistent and write more (this time I really mean it).

Crop tops & Midi skirts

image1xxl 8 Crop tops & Midi skirts

Photo by: Asos

Being the curvy type of woman that I am, with a non flat stomach whatsoever, I never got the “crop top fever” that’s been around since… last year, maybe?

And midi skirts were never that interesting for me, since I’m a mini skirt/shorts fan myself. Plus, I never thought that midi skirts were compatible with my sort of rock n’ roll style, I mean, I look at Atlantic Pacific as a reference when it comes to midi skirts, and the woman pulls it off like nobody else, but it wasn’t exactly my style.

But then I saw this look on Asos, and fell in love. I saved the picture on my files (I like to have my own style library for reference), and started to obsess over the look. Edgy and rock n’ roll, with ankle boots and a leather jacket. Plus, a total black outfit. I didn’t bought anything right away, it took me about 3 or 4 weeks to decide on buying the skirt and a crop top (my first!). The crop top I went for is from Nasty Gal, and I can’t wait to get my paws on it. I just hope it looks good on me, as well as the skirt.

I’ll probably post a picture here (it’s been way too long since I don’t post my own pictures), because I’ll be definitely stepping out of my comfort zone.

What do you think about the look?

End of Summer mood

c600x500 End of Summer mood

The party season is over (or almost over), the days are getting shorter and shorter and even though it’s still very warm, we can all sense that Autumn is coming. Which isn’t exactly that bad, considering that I like living in tights and leather jackets. And the thought of wearing jeans covering up my legs doesn’t sound too claustrophobic either.

Welcome, september. Please bring the good vibes, love and fun!

Leopard print shoes

c600x612 Leopard print shoes

I never thought I would be the type of person who would love leopard print, ever. I grew up with this idea that animal print was tacky, but somehow that idea changed and leopard print grew up on me.
I still don’t like leopard print jackets, or pants, but I absolutely love it on shoes, bags and belts. And last year and this year as well I’ve seen a lot of gorgeous shoes in this print and I can’t get enough.

I’m dying for these Steve Madden slip ons and sneakers, and the Bronx ones are so me!
