You’re probably looking at your screen thinking ‘not another shopping related post’. If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you probably know that I’m not constantly shopping for new items, but sometimes I think having something new feels good. At the moment, I only buy clothes that are unique and look interesting to me. It’s all in the details, babe, because quite frankly and luckily enough, I don’t need anything else as I’m sure most girls don’t actually need to splurge on fashion every week. A few weeks ago, knowing that my shoe collection wasn’t as strong on the summer side, I’ve decided to get a few pairs (at once), but also get some accessories as well while I was at it. Here we are now, we’re looking at the current must haves for Summer 2019!

Hello there,

We’re quickly getting closer to the festive season. As you might guess, I’m excited to feel the frosty air, drink mulled wine and spend the holidays in a really cosy atmosphere. It’s my favourite time of the year! Since I love the season this much I always plan my outfits early to avoid the disappointment of ‘out of stock’ items or just because I prefer not to rush with my decisions. I’ve put together a beautiful collection of festive dresses that you can trust to look amazing in, while you’re enjoying your holiday time. Get the most out of this period of time, just before half of December to ensure you’ll have your outfits ready for the festive events.

Red all the way

Jazz, champagne and a great dancing party. That’s what this dress makes me dream of. Great for the New Year’s Eve, the Red Bardot dress promises a night to remember. The cleavage is just right, making you look sexy without making you look cheap (I could elaborate on the look that we shouldn’t go for, but I’ll just stop here and focus on what looks better from my perspective). I love a to wear red at parties and quite frankly I always remember my statement looks throughout the years. My philosophy is: if you can make an impression, why not? Go for a dress that makes you feel in control, super ready to shine and one that will bring great memories. Have the best New Year Party ever!

White Winter Dream

Such a beautiful piece! This White Midi Dress is simple and really elegant. You’ll feel classy while decorating the carefully picked Christmas tree with the most exquisite decorations. The sleeves are gently falling off shoulders and the upper part of the dress, reveals your bone structure. Now think about your Christmas pictures as well – they will be different and much more likely to be remembered as you’ll be dressed just like a white winter dream. Only picture yourself lighting the fire and sipping champagne while your favourite Christmas carols are on. Red and white are my favourite colours to wear during the season. They might be classic, but they make me feel in line with the atmosphere.

Wear this dress with nude high heels to ensure the attention won’t be drawn from the dress itself. Since the dress has a simple cut, you can wear with black fringe sandals and a glittery bag! You’ll feel absolutely amazing.

Red Fringes

This dress is so Jenifer Lopez! I’m sure she’d wear this style – short and super fiesta vibes. I’ve never tried a similar dress before, so I thought New Year’s can be the perfect occasion to do so. I always feel that a special occasion, calls for something different. Don’t you? The fit of the dress is bodycon, flattering your curves rather than doing the opposite. I think that’s a benefit you’re getting with this dress. If you love to dance salsa or any other type of genre, the dress will look fabulous on while you dance the night away. Just make sure you have someone taking some pictures of you during the dance. They might turn out amazing! I would wear this dress for a friend gathering party or at a cocktail bar.

When it comes to shoes, you need to keep them classy because the dress is already doing a lot for you. So, no need for glitter or any statement shoes – let them take the back seat if you’re choosing to wear this dress.

Do you love black leather jackets? Me too! Although I didn’t wear one in three years now,  I find leather jackets to be perfect for the transition between spring and summer. Finding the perfect one might be a challenge, so get browsing and follow my tips to choose your own.

History of the leather jacket

You might not know this, but the first leather jacket was created for fighter pilots in the first World War! It only made it in fashion in the 90’s and it remained at the cool item of a wardrobe.

How to choose your leather jacket

Look at the leather’s quality 

That’s a pretty straight forward advice, but do look out for the leather’s quality. Signs of early damage while it’s already on the store’s hanger has to make you forget about it. Just imagine how many damages it will suffer from while you’re wearing it. If it’s NOT super soft, then the leather will pass the test of time and look its best after you’ve worn it for a while.

Check the interior fabric

Assuming you’re buying it for Spring, you still want to check its interior. If it looks that it will keep you warm enough for chilly afternoons, then it will make a really good buy. The last thing you want is to freeze in it while sipping cocktails on a rooftop.

Select the right length

I love it when its length is just above my waist. If it’s longer than that, there are chances for me to not like it just as much. That length makes you look taller and goes with pretty much any style: worn with a jumper, over a dress or over a short top.

Look out for quality zippers

The zippers have to be of good quality because you want your jacket to look on point. Zippers can both ruin and lift up a jacket, so stay close to the quality ones.

Get the right fit

I can’t stand leather jackets that are baggy and loose. For me, the right fit is the one that stays tight to your body. It makes you look uber chic and ah did I mention you can wear it with a dress in spring?

Clean it regularly

There are different special cleaning solutions you can use for its maintenance. The leather can break, so in order to prevent this from happening you might want to give it a rigorous clean once in a while.
