Elegant girly look

Good morning fashionistas!

I definitely consider myself a sneakers and jeans lover, so that’s what I prefer to wear on a daily basis, but I also always enjoy rocking a more classy look and replacing the jeans with a dress when going out for drinks with the girls.
Something I always keep in mind is the comfort and that’s why when buying a dress, platform shoes or heels, I make sure that they are comfortable enough and I will actually wear them.
Yet, I still have so many clothes in my wardrobe that I love but never wear, just because… comfort first 😉

The look I’m sharing with you is both elegant and comfy, so I’m really happy with it! I also love the colours and the fabrics of the dress and the top. And trust me or not, this platform shoes are one of the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever bought!

City look – Amsterdam


Good morning fashionistas!

Happy to see you here again! Today, I have a simple, comfortable and fresh look for you. The brands I’m wearing are extremely affordable and I’m sure you can find them anywhere.

Living in Amsterdam or another big city definitely gives you the freedom to shop all the brands you want. Starting with Primark (which I’m not a big fan of) going through the mid-range priced brands like Pull and Bear, Zara, H&M, Bershka, Mango and ending with the big malls for expensive brands like Gucci, Luis Vuitton and Prada.

I love going to all of these big expensive stores, even though I know I’ll end up not buying anything from them. Why do I go there then? For inspiration. At this stores I get my inspiration to look for the affordable alternatives and you all know that this is my favourite thing to do 🙂 I’m sure you’re going to enjoy an activity like this as well.

Call your shopping friend and go with her (or him) to the most expensive stores in your city, take a look at the new collections, try something on, take some funny photos in the changing rooms and then go on a hunt to find the affordable alternatives.

Here’s the list of the items of the outfit from the pictures:

Come with me on my fashion journey

 

A couple of years back I created my Instagram account and started following all these beautiful Instagram models and movie stars wearing their Gucci bags and Louis Vuitton shoes, looking gorgeous and flawless.
I was secretly wishing that I could look like them and started browsing through the online shops of some famous luxury brands. Seeing that the price of a bag or a pair of shoes could be the same as my monthly rent I realised that this is not how it’s going to work for me. I’ve always preferred to spend my money on vacations, going out with friends or save for some more important stuff. But at the same time, just like every woman of self-respect, I wanted to create my unique style and feel beautiful and confident.
This was the moment when I really started looking for the affordable alternatives and I was so impressed by the discovery I made!

Your personal style can never be defined just by the brands you wear! It’s all about the colours and tones, the diversity of fabrics, patterns and small elements that you combine to represent your inner self. 

That’s when I truly fell in love with fashion. Simply because through fashion you can express how you feel, who you are and who you want to be. And to me being yourself is the key to look good, feel good and live a happy life, don’t you agree? 😉
