Real: How to wear sweatpants

I got this awesome pair of sweatpants from bershka and I had to make an outfit with them (besides fashioning them around the house which I really consider a waste). I'm not the type to wear sweatpants in public (yikes) but I think this has become acceptable these days. Also, it was Sunday and I was feeling a bit lazy. And may I say that I was never more comfortable in public. You forget how constricting are regular pants and jeans. This was soft and awesome.

I think the most important thing to think about when wearing sweatpants is how to dress them up. If you just wear a t-shirt and flip-flops  it will definitely not look good. Opposites attract. So do glam and casual clothes. 

I paired it with a cute graphic-t, flats, some costume jewelry (my favorite bib necklace) for an added chic effect and pink lipstick. It's not as if I just put my hair in a pony tail and ran out the house. Didn't really want people to think I was going running. I mean, I didn't want to ruin my reputation. 

I'm wearing:

Sweatpants - Bershka
Blazer - unknown
Leather jacker - Zara
Graphic T-shirt - Zara
Flats - Bershka 
Necklace - Forever21
Sunglasses - RayBan

Real: Stripes in Paris, what a surprise

I've always loved stripes and this blazer in particular. I have just found that it works with casual outfits, layered over a blouse for work, and for everything else in between. I have bought this one a while ago in H&M but have found that they have a very similar one in stores now too (I believe it's $49.90 so you better get to it fast!). 

It works great with my lace-up zara booties which I can't live without (or go two posts without wearing) and my favorite skinny jeans (I wrote about them here). Layer some gold jewelry, and my leather bracelet I have bought in Joe Fresh a few months ago (for which I constantly get compliments for because everyone thinks it's Hermes, giggle). 

 I'm wearing:

Stripped blazer - H&M
Dark wash (super) skinny jeans - Abercrombie
Shirt with lace sleeves - Forever21
Lace-up boots - Zara
Black patent leather chain bag - Zara
Layered necklace - H&M
Leather cuff bracelet - Joe Fresh

Real: The last of the winter days in Paris, with some tribal print

Don't you just hate those winter days when the skies are blue and sunny, and you so foolishly believe (or hope) that spring has finally arrived. Then you walk outside in your cute little spring jacket, still with the unworn smell, and literally turn into a popsicle? Yes. That has been happening a lot to me lately. The New York weather has been acting like a woman going through menopause. As in that situation, we have no other choice but to weather through (pun intended). 

However, on this beautiful Paris day I decided to still wear my cozy gray zara coat and my favorite tribal print scarf. I paired it with a ballerina bun and my braided bangs since I was having the day after the flight hair disaster. This is my first outfit post from Paris and I am oh, so, proud of the wonderful photos my friend Milica (with the C being pronounced as an S, don't make me punch you) took of me. They were taken in the courtyard of the Louvre which is divine beyond explanation. Everything about that city makes me wonder about all the wonderful things humans have created and how we never truly appreciate it anymore, apart from millions of tourists which snap photos of things they don't know when, how, or by whom were built by. Those peeps are precious. But, before I go into my raging critique of tourists world-wide, why don't I stop. Just stop.

I'm wearing:

Gray coat - Zara
Tribal print scarf (it's actually a poncho) - H&M
Black patent chain leather bag - Zara
Dark wash jeans - Abercrombie
Lace up boots - Zara
Gold ring - Forever21

Real: Red hat, plaid and gray. A lesson in winter layering

Although the winter is almost done (hopefully), I still believe some of you would benefit from imaginative layering in the cold days to come. I am no expert but I do get these great ideas on how to combine items in my closet as never before. This could possibly be due to my inability to shop these days, partly for not having any (and I mean ANY) room in my closet, and partly due to my lack of mula for these shopping expeditions I have became accustomed to. Let me get to the point before you scroll down to the pictures (if you have not done so already in which case you are not even reading this so I don't care what I write because you suck, kidding, kidding). 

One of my favorite things to do in the past year is wearing dresses and layering on top of them. You usually need a shirt which doesn't have a deep v-neck of some sort but something that is pretty closed on top. That is to cover the whole top of the dress and not have things sticking out and looking just plain awkward. Once you have the dress and the shirt, I would suggest to belt it as I have, just to add some shape to the outfit. Then you can continue with a denim, plaid shirt, sweater, fur vest and so on. Put on some hot booties, a matching coat, and voila! - you have a stylish, cozy, warm winter outfit. Do be careful not to be too colorful. Stick to neutrals or lots of black and denim with one accent color (as I have).

Well, this is all. 

I'm wearing:

Dress: H&M
Shirt: H&M
Belt: Topshop
Plaid shirt: no name
Sweater: no name
Coat: Zara

Real: Fur and burgundy

It was one of those sunny, freezing days in New York. While headed to one of the craziest brunch parties, I was walking around at 2 pm in a full blown party outfit. Tallest heels included. Nothing is strange in New York and neither was I. 

This combo perfectly defines my style this winter. I have paired my favorite color of the moment - burgundy with the ultimate favorite color - black. I also love the jacquard detail of the zara pants which I bought on a sale and were really a bargain. I've been rocking the burgundy accessories for these cold days, and they look great with my winter gray coat as well. The fur coat is my favorite though. I love love love fur coats. And don't say that it's wrong and you kill animals blah blah. Excuse me for not being politically correct on this one, you can see and feel the difference between real and faux fur. I'm sorry, but it's true. You're not fooling anyone baby. If someone feels insulated...oh well. If it's any consolation - I only own one and it's a short one :).

Obsessed with... Burgundy

It's definitely the color of the season. Why? Because it's cooler than red, because it goes so well with all neutrals in your closet, and because it's not boring. Also, you can apply it to any item - from leather skirts and pants (my favs in this color), heavy winter sweaters all the way to bags and nails. I have a hat, scarf and gloves in this amazing color and have been obsessed with it since then. Maybe you will see them in a post to come. In the mean time, enjoy this collage of burgundy deliciousness. 

P.S. Are you fat yet? I hope you're getting there because after the holidays you will have no excuse for it.
