A September Wedding

I got married in September 12th, after 15 years and 6 months of dating. Yes, we were only kids when we found that extra something in each other. And we’ve been through a lot…we still do… but I believe we’re together for the good and the bad, forever.

We grew up together, so to speak. So it made sense to me to be doing this. And, in fact, this was such a crazy year that if it wasn’t for the wedding, I wouldn’t have almost nothing good to say!

So, my wedding saved my year! hehe I wouldn’t change anything that happened that day. Well, maybe the weather… because it rained a lot! But, even the rain and the fog made awesome pictures! Check for yourself. I hope you like the photos!

Have a Happy New Year!!!

The white dress I’ve been dreamin’ about!

The white dress I've been dreamin' about!

Everyone’s talking about the Vogue cover, well all I can think of is this beautiful Alexander McQueen wedding dress!

You see, I understand Vogue’s fans concerns, but I only see the feathery look, the asymmetry, the covered bust… It’s so dreamy. Wow, I just can’t say enough of this dress. And it’s white! I bet its only defect will be the price. For us mortals, Alexander McQueen is out of reach.

Do you like this dress as much as I do? What do you think about Vogue’s cover photo?

Tchau!

Start the Countdown

Start the Countdown

Seriously, I can’t wait for April 10th! The new H&M Conscious Collection is stunning! From old Hollywood glamour to lace dresses, the collection has it all.

I would be in line to buy this black dress, but I don’t think the full collection will be available at my local stores. I can only hope to buy it online… and hope it’s not too expensive! Times demand precaution in what concerns shopping. I should only buy what I need – by the way, this would only happen in 15 years – or buy what I really, really, really like. And I do like this black dress. I love the shape, I am even considering applying it to other type of dress… I’ll tell you all about that later. 🙂

What do you think about this new collection? Do you own previous H&M’s Conscious Collection items?

Tchau!

Look at the night skies

Look at the night skies

When I was a little girl I wanted to be an Astronaut. In fact, it was the first Profession that I chose. I wanted to look Earth from above. I wanted to see the planets, I wanted to get sick of counting stars, I wanted to feel that I was so tiny and at the same time so important that I was standing up there, in the night skies…

I have changed my mind since then…like a million times! And, no I am not an Astronaut. But, I can’t restrain my mind from travelling back to those days when I knew exactly what I wanted and was such a dreamer that I just wanted to be on a rocket ship and travel to Space! So that’s why I completely understand Buzz Aldrin’s quote “The biggest benefit of Apollo was the inspiration it gave to a growing generation to get into science and aerospace.” I was born only in the eighties, but the Man on The Moon was still very present in people’s minds.

I hope this NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg knows how lucky and privileged she is!

What was your childhood dream?

Tchau!

Spring Break – Wish List

Image

This is the Spring Break. It’s still too soon for my Birthday, but I feel like putting together a Wish List! Some items are way more affordable than others, but hey a girl can dream, right? The last time I checked, it was still free! So, please check my Wish List Nr.1.

Asos is one of the best websites I know. Free Shipping costs, they post worldwide and you can find items at prices that suit all pockets.

While I was a little girl and even a teenager, I never considered myself a very feminine person. And I say this because I didn’t like skirts or dresses. I wanted to play free regardless my clothing, and skirts and dresses unconsciously made me behave like an adult, and I just wanted to be a child! So it’s a bit weird that my first selection of today goes to dresses and skirts. I guess I am really a grown-up now!

I love these Midi-Skirts! They are so elegant and beautiful that I can’t get enough! If I could, I would buy one in each color, but unfortunately I only have one in black. Anyway, while spring cleaning my Closet, I’ve found a dress that has exactly this cut. So Fashion is cyclic, and I’m glad it is!

The dress… well, it’s a bit expensive for my budget, but I simply love it! I love the cut, the shoulders, the embroidery, even the color! Okay, what I don’t like is exactly the price. Maybe I can find a similar version somewhere…

Stay tuned for Whislist Nr.2, I promise it’s not going to be about skirts! 🙂

Tchau!

Yay…or nay?

Yay...or nay?

I first saw this photo in October 2013, and since then I’ve been dreamin’ – day and night – with these gladiator sandals!
Some of you may think that this outfit has too many things going on, but I just think it’s “fantabulous”! The perfect balance between chic and at the same time rough. Probably I wouldn’t wear those jeans, but who knows?
Kourtney K. has great style. Actually, I think she is very original, more than Kim who usually follows trends.

So, it’s a yay or nay for this outfit? And the gladiator sandals? For me, it’s definately YAY, all the way! ❤

Tchau!

A Broken Spell

Image

This is the new Zara Shoe Boot. I fell in love, really! Do you remember this same style in SS/13, but on a leopard print? They were sold out everywhere! So this time I thought I shouldn’t lose the opportunity to have this as well beautiful, pair of shoes. But, when I have tried them on, it somewhat have broken the spell. I thought the heel was a bit too high – 10,6 cm by the way – and the laces very unpractical. These days they cost 49,95€ (around $68). So I think, it’s a wise decision to wait for the pre sales, after Christmas. If I am fast and lucky enough, I will find them at a lower price, which will launch a new spell on me!

What do you think about these shoes? Which one do you like the most: the black&white or the leopard print version? Are you a shoe addict? Please let me know, I’ll be soooo happy! 🙂

Tchau
