Hey, Stylish!

If you ask me what era of fashion inspires me the most, I would say the 80’s. I am so into hyper forms and drama which was the motto of the 80’s fashion. I also like the fact that the natural materials were used for everything. If you want to buy great leather pieces, find 80’s vintage. I truly believe that buying vintage leather, fur, and cotton is the only way to bring sustainability into the fashion industry. My great vintage jacket with detachable sleeves is from ULTRA-CAT, a bold and unique brand that would be launched very soon. Stay tuned, I leave you with great inspirations:

Hey, Stylish!

This time I would love to share with you a great source to buy this cool jacket. The round metallic detailing in clothes and accessories is a must-have in this season and this jacket is the exaggeration of this trend. Wear it with a pair of jeans and tank top or with the black maxi for a more dramatic look.  And the best news is that this jacket is on sale!!!

Hey Stylish!

All we know the stigma that one should not wear white after Labor day, which is a complete false. I truly believe that fashion right now has no rules, gender or boundaries. So please, wear white and all other colors whenever or whatever you want ( maybe just avoid wearing white at someone else’s wedding at least). In today’s look I was not only inspired by my favorite color+ texture technique ( white+metal) but also by the pleated skirt trend that is so hot this season.  Wear the pleated skirts with the bulky sweaters or the longline classic coats to enhance the gentle nature of pleats or go crazy with texture as I did in my look. Here are some inspirations for you:

 Hey, Stylish!

Weird and unusually beautiful shoes are having a moment this year. Designers are using unconventional materials and silhouettes to enhance the boldness of the nowadays style. I like the notion of wearing the art on your feet… and wearable art itself. The unusual and unique pieces do not necessarily only come from the runway, here are some of my favorite sources for unique and affordable footwear:

  1. Jeffrey Campbell.My favorite shoe designer and beloved shoe brand. Campbell is an  LA based shoe designer that creates quirky, fresh and super trendy heels, flats and platforms. You can see a lot of IT girls wearing his designs. I own around 7 pairs of Jeffrey Campbell shoes and would love to expand my collection.
  2. Poshmark. A platform for recycling your old wardrobe finds online. You can find a lot of unique, vintage or designer shoes there at affordable prices ( spoiler alert: Jeffrey Campbell as well!!!). The best part about it is that you can bargain and propose your own price.
  3. Y.R.U. Another cool and young brand. It is pretty edgy and has a great variety of Lolita, Goth, and rock chic shoe gear.
  4. eBay. This is a no brainer. You can find anything on eBay, including unique and crazy shoes. My favorites are this and that.
  5. DollsKill. A cool website for one of a kind piece for every taste: edgy, flirty, romantic, punk and etc. They also have huge flash sales very often.

Let me know what are your favorite places to buy the inspirational footwear! If you want to find some new inspirations for unique purses, check out my blog post about it.

The Liquid Metal

Hey, Stylish!
I am very happy to have an opportunity to come back and continue tracking down the evolution of my own style and share some of my visual inspiration with you. I like to think of myself as a person who does not do brands or trends, rather wearing what I feel is beautiful. However, it is really hard not to follow fashion, even though the style is the priority. The spring season was defined by three main trends: ruffles, stripes, and metal. However, I always liked metallic hues and always considered them being almost the “new nude”color. Surprisingly, the silver hue with that liquid quality works with almost everything. My favorite combination would be white and silver. As usual, I am very inspired by the runway, since it is most an art form, rather than design. For today’s’ look I was inspired by:

Michael Kors
