6 Style Tips On How To Wear Blanket Scarves

szal

Scarves and blanket scarves started to show up in the shops in early autumn. Blanket scarf is simply a giant version of a scarf ,which is so big that can be used as a blanket. They’re warm, cosy, comfortable and wonderful, and it’s one of my favourite trends of the fall and winter season this year. I already have several of them, and I love using them as shawls, makeshift ponchos and capes, and yes, even a blankets. But despite how versatile they are, blanket scarves can be a real style challenge. How  should  you wear so much fabric ? and how to wrap blanket scarf around your neck? If you are looking for some ideas on how to wear the...

3 tips how to wear flared skirt

riuszka spódnica szara

It’s nothing new. Flared skirts are known since around  the 50’s. For many years, they were returning like a boomerang but  in many different ways - below-knee length at Dior ,rock 'n roll skirt with tulle lining or leather skirt or studded skirt  fit perfectly in the rock or gothic style. They are made from different fabrics - elegant satin, tweed and wool, leather or popular neoprene.   Żadna nowość. Spódnice z koła znamy już co najmniej od lat 50-tych. Przez wiele lat powracały jak bumerang w różnym wydaniu – u Diora przykrywające kolana, rockandrollowe z tiulową podszewką lub skórzane czy  nabijane ćwiekami świetnie wpisujące się w styl rockowy czy gotycki. Szyte z różnych materiałów – od eleganckiej satyny, przez tweed i wełnę, po skórę czy popularny neopren. They can be combined with...

Bye Bye Autumn, hello winter….

When I was  cleaning up my  computer’s hard disk, I found my  forgotten photos. It’s not sophisticated makeover , just casual, ordinary outfit which is perfect for an autumn walk. Yes, exactly, autumn… still. And I don’t mean gloomy and rainy autumn, but this beautiful, golden Polish autumn. In the pictures you can see trees still bedecked in leaves which are turning yellow. I love this time ...

In passing. Implicite learning.

61

Have you ever wondered whether we're cool because we have nice friends, or maybe it is other way round: we are so cool and because of that we attract cool people? Which came first, the chicken or the egg? Definitely let me know if you know the answer ;). Zastanawialiście się kiedyś nad tym czy jesteśmy tacy fajni jak jesteśmy, bo mamy fajnych znajomych, czy może działa to na odwrotnej zasadzie: jesteśmy tacy fajni, więc i przyciągamy fajnych ludzi ? Co było pierwsze : kura czy kogut ? Jak znacie odpowiedź, koniecznie dajcie mi znać;) No matter if you are great and you attract similar people or if you were just lucky to meet unique friends, it all boils down to the fact that we always learn something from each...

Harmony. Work – life balance or work –life integrity ?

7a1

Balance in fashion is really important for me. Usually I choose one expressive element and I add toned base as a background. Today I chose sensual high split pencil skirt by Atelier Edith which exposes leg in a seductive way. The rest is less flamboyant - oversized, warm sweater and beige accessories that almost “blend into” my skin. Równowaga w modzie jest dla mnie bardzo ważna. Zwykle wybieram jeden wyrazisty element i wówczas tło dla niego stanowi stonowana baza. Dzisiaj wybierając zmysłową spódnicę od Atelier Edith z długim pęknięciem, które  eksponuje nogę w uwodzicielski sposób, postawiłam na mało krzykliwą resztę – obszerny, ciepły sweter i beżowe dodatki, które wręcz zlewają się ze skórą.   An oversized sweater and elegant, "office" skirt? Sweater is perfect for the current “sweater weather”  (what you can...

How to wear bell/ trapeze dress ?

1a

Bell dress – it’s for romantics, this in A - line- for minimalists and trapeze dress - for fans of mathematics and classics;) It all comes down to the fact that this dress is widening from the shoulders to the hem. The history of trapeze dress begins in the fashion house Dior - when the designer decided to create an outfit in a  shape of the letter A and thus departed from strong emphasizing the waist. Such cuts were heavily promoted by Polish La Mania. Victoria Beckham also took a liking to this cut. I’m not surprised because once she said: ” I dress sexily – but not in an obvious way. Sexy in a virginal way.” I think I would describe this dress exactly like that...

5 tricks to make your legs look longer in ankle boots

34b

Low-heel ankle boots are one of the most comfortable types of shoes for autumn. They are warm and comfortable, but rarely they look exceptionally. If you have high heel ankle boots then your legs get additional cm( it’s such  a clever trick ;) ), otherwise legs don’t always look favorably. But it doesn’t mean that your legs have to look bad ;) Here are some of my tips :)   Botki na niskim obcasie to jeden z najwygodniejszych typów obuwia na jesień. Są ciepłe, komfortowe, ale rzadko kiedy wyglądają tak samo wyjątkowo jak wyjątkowo dobrze noszą się. Jeśli posiadają wysoki obcas, nasze nogi zyskują dodatkowe cm( to taki sprytny trik ;) ), w innym wypadku nie zawsze nogi prezentują się korzystnie. Ale nie oznacza to, że nasze nogi skazane są na zły...

Upside down. Do you have something of a freak? ;)

62

Is there something you know you do differently than others? E.g. to slice bread from right to the left , not from left to the right? I  do that. My friends are surprised when they see that. It’s probably because I’m left-handed. My friend peels banana from the bottom ,not from the top (Greetings to Joanna!),which is extremely strange for me. My other friend when she is eating Delicje  ( cakes similar to Jaffa Cakes ,which you probably know better)  she only eats a sponge and she doesn’t eat jelly part, which amazes me, because I start with jelly part  and I don’t eat a sponge. What quirks do you have? Or maybe you know some "freaks"? ;). Don’t be afraid to confess me your quirks because someone once said:...

Coco Chanel Essentials

19a

If you read my blog, probably you noticed  quotes of  Coco Chanel or references to her main principle "less is more". It’s true, I love drawing inspiration from various fashion trends, and a lot of things inspire me, but my roots are strongly embedded in the style created by divine Gabrielle Chanel (It’s her real name). I recently re-watched a movie about life of Chanel and it inspired me to take a closer look to the key elements of Coco’s style. The  current offer of  fashion house Chanel for me is a bit more flashy, too, "seasonal" but of course in new collections we can see the spirit of old  Chanel (jackets, tweed, quilted chain shoulder bags), but I remain faithful to what suits me - the elegant minimalism;)   Jeśli czytasz mój...
