Today`s Outfit: The Dipped Hem White Dress

The things I do to get a good photo...I found this dress on the Asos website and I was prepared to order it when I saw it was sold out on my size. As the huge online shopper that I am, I`ve learned not to get desperate from the first try and keep searching! and surprise, surprise, I found my dress on Ebay, in my size, at half of price that it was being sold on Asos! I don`t know how sellers on Ebay do it and I`ve learned not to question them and just accept the blessing.
The heels are also a lucky buy as I got them on sales and initially they were sold out in black online and in the shop near me but somehow when I double checked online at night they were restocked!
 
I can now say, with a hand on my heart that January was definitely a good shopping month! :)

Today`s Outfit: Nerdy

 photo nerd6.jpg  photo nerd3.jpg  photo nerd1.jpg  photo nerd7.jpg  photo nerd4.jpg
 
It was snowing quite heavily when we shot these outfit photos and I was freezing my ass off the whole time. The things I do for this blog!
 I got these geeky glasses a few weeks ago from Brick Lane`s market and I`ve been dying to wear them out but always felt a bit silly. To be honest, I don`t think my face shape goes well with glasses but I think they added a nice (nerdy!) touch to the outfit. The black shirt and the leather look-a-like denim shorts are another 2 lovely items that are now available in my Ebay shop.
I can`t wait for the weather to get warmer so I can get rid off the tights and wear these shorts with bare legs and ankle boots.
 
What do you think about my nerdy/preppy outfit? Yay or nay?

Today`s Outfit: White Lace Blouse

(Ebay white lace & crochet blouse, Stylenanda off-white skinny trousers, River Island white studded ankle boots)

A combination of romantic details ( the lace) and toughness (the studded boots) in today`s outfit. Although I don`t mind girly outfits, I prefer adding a slight touch of edge to them just to make them a bit more interesting.
As you can see it`s been snowing in London for the past few days which makes shooting outfit photos a bit more challenging since I have to take my coat off and sit there freezing for a couple of minutes while acting like I`m in a tropical island instead. But I`m quite happy how these photos turned out and also I`m quite happy that I`m getting so much better at jumping photos! So expect more of those in the near future :).

Coming back to the outfit, this beautiful lace blouse comes all the way from S. Korea (!!- you know my obsession with Korean fashion), and is now available on my Ebay shop along with other items picked by me from Korea.

Today`s Outfit: Valentino Exhibition

I finally got the chance to see the Valentino exhibition in London once I came back from holiday. It was quite cool seeing some of Valentino`s amazing haute couture creations including a couple of pieces worn by Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly, and Sophia Loren. The exhibition also contains photographs, letters, and other bits and bobs from Valentino Garavani`s personal life. The only thing that I was expecting to see more of and was quite dissapointed about was that there weren`t as many of his famous red gowns which are one of Valentino`s most famous creations. Photography wasn`t allowed so unfortunately I have no photos from inside but if you are in London the exhibition is still running at Somerset House till 3rd March.

(Nelly "ARMY" tank top & golden chain necklace, Pull and Bear black coat, Topshop black jeans)

Bye bye sunny and warm days! since I`ve been back in London the weather has been just slightly above freezing. Except for the sales (which reminds me that I still need to show you the lovely items I got from Nasty Gal), January is a bit of a depressing month for everyone. Actually the only good thing about this month is that my birthday is coming soon! I`m still not sure what I`ll be doing to celebrate it, all I know is that I want cake to be involved, and loads of it :).

Today`s Outfit: Japanese Gardens

(Asos Petite red dress)
 
I wore this red dress on the last day in Madeira when we visited their beautiful Japanese Gardens. The weather was amazing which made it even harder to come back to rainy London :(.
Anyway, this is the last outfit post from Portugal but I`ll be making soon a travel diary post with all the random photos I didn`t get the chance to publish on the blog.

Today`s Outfit: Night Lights

Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket
(Ebay burgundy top, River Island nude skinny jeans & ankle boots, Zara necklace)

These photos were shot on the first night of Christmas in Portugal. Although I never imagined a Christmas without snow I really enjoyed the warm weather and pretty lights which made Madeira perfect for night walks. The streets were very safe and bustling with people and music, and although there weren`t any snowmen and children with red noses from cold it still felt very Christmasy.
