^ I would run too... I go to my neighbourhood's hairdresser. She's been cutting my hair since forever, so I trust her, plus she's cheap But of course, it's only that cheap because I deny all treatments and pampering and because it's a neighbourhood salon.

I don't particularly like the bouclé jacket I posted before in white, as it looks... flat. But I saw two others, also on Mango, that look nice. I posted them on Pinterest. One is sort of a cream colour, which could indeed be nice for summer

And EvaH, I'd like to know too! I hope you have protested to no end (but then again I'm known for protesting every time I can... my parents think I do it too much, I just think it's my right to ).

^I have made a seperate folder on my email account just to save my complaints to various customer services:innoncent: The J crew trousers I ordered were one inch larger at the waist and hip than they listed at their site, so now I have a free international return shipping

I almost wanted to ask Eva for her package details so I could complain about the mis-delivery myself

Hey all!

I can't believe I've been gone from this thread for so long, I hope you still remember me? I didn't forget about you for a day, I kept thinking about this thread and how I had to come back, but something always came up and I had some problems ... But it's all better now and I'm ready to start posting again!

Any updates? I see that Jina has graduated, which is amazing, congratulations!! And I saw that you created boards for recommendations on Pinterest - I would love to have one too! Could someone direct me to the instructions for making one?

I'm so excited to be back, finally! And I will share more of what I've bought and what I'm planning to buy soon.

@Eva: actually, what you saw is my old do. The picture was taken the day before I went to the hairdresser. Will post a picture of how it looks now.

Hope you will figure out your problem soon. What did you do to your jackets?

@Eizowa: sigh. what is it about webshops these days? Glad to hear you got your return shipping covered.

@Juliette:
Welcome back darling - I have missed you! Hope you have sorted life out. I look forward to hearing about your purchases!

To create a recommandation board just make a new board and create it as a group board and start inviting people.


On haircuts:
I used to be really stingy about getting my hair cut but I have realized that I wear my hair every day and therefore I need a nice haircut. Fortunately my hairdresser offers student discounts and sometimes I will be a hair model, and then I will only pay around 20 bucks for a superb haircut.

Me: I finally sorted out my clothes yesterday - seemed like all it took was out internet breaking down I took away almost all of my coloured clothes and a lot of vintage(-y) things. Now I have only got black, white, grey and powder pink. And a few printed dresses. I got coloured shoes (red and green) though. I can do colours on shoes. But not on clothes ATM. Feels really nice.

Also I am considering making my velvet dress into a blouse instead, now that it seems like the odd spot on the back of it can not be brushed into place. I constantly need blouses.

Juliette: Of course we remember you! Nice to have you back!

Betina: Love your haircut! So chic I love bangs like that. If only my hair was straight...

Making it into a top is better than discarding it, that's for certain

Are you wearing your printed dress as a top with a skirt? How clever. Wouldn't have known had I not seen the dress before.

Thank you, Juliette and again - so glad to have you back in here.

Betina, you seriously made me wanna cut my hair short(er). I need a new do in June though, my hair is growing like crazy, like I am fertilizing it. >.<

I made a Recommendation board for myself too, but mostly out of curiousity. I don't really need anything right now and at the announcement after my presentation this week I heard that we will have a ceremony (diploma awarding) only in January next year ...
... and there goes my plan for an outfit too.

@Eizhowa: thank you so much! My hair is in no way straight. There is quite a lot of it and it is curly when long. And annoying when short So I will put it in two french braids on the days where I do not wanna bother with straigtening it.

And yes, it is indeed a dress! I suck a buying blouses so I will have to think out of the box :p You are perfectly right about the velvet dress. I just need to figure out how to do it. I am not sure it will be good for wearing a skirt OVER as blouse since the fabric is so thick and I almost always wear my top tucked in my skirt. Maybe I should make it rather short so it will go with my highwaisted skirts without having to be tucked into them.

@Jina: awww, you are so nice! I am not sure that I really understand the issue about your diploma awarding - please explain!

^I think her problem is that it is very cold in January. Summer ceremonies are more fun and a lot easier to dress for.

Of course. I graduated (had a thesis presentation and got a degree) this Wednesday and on Monday I will receive only an official certificate that I graduated,
but the ceremony, which includes getting an actual diploma, will happen no earlier than in January 2014.
It's quite annoying since I expected for the ceremony to happen in June or July.

Edit: I'm a little late.

Haha, I do this too... more often that not because some dresses aren't even long enough to cover my butt so I buy them as blouses to tuck in. And your hair looks lovely! Such a great haircut on you

I feel ya! Also, I'm pretty sure you'll manage to be the most stylish in the diploma ceremony I think I'll have mine in November... Not sure.

I hate to double post, but I was thinking... how do you all feel about wearing trench coats when it's not raining?

I have a short black trench that I rarely wear. It has a very nice cut and is very flattering on me, just it's thin and I'm a bit sensitive to cold, which is why I don't give it as much wear as I should. I was thinking maybe I could wear it instead of my blazers so that I won't look too "suited up", but I'm not sure it'd be weird since it's usually very dry here in the summer months.

@Jina: ah, I see! However, I am with Barbaraa. I am sure that you will figure out how to look great.

@Barbaraa:
I am really short so I rarely have that problem :p I just do not have enough blouses, appearently.

Thx for the nice words about my hair.

I am not sure wether I have missed something but I did not know that trenchcoats were for rain :p Well, maybe originally, but mine is cotton - it would not be pleasant to wear it when it is raining cats and dogs (or at all). I use mine primarily in the spring and for fall. At the moment mostly open, so I think you could use it instead of a blazer, absolutely.

I wouldn't say trenchcoats are just strictly for rain... I used to wear mine all the time in the spring, before it got ruined. So I say go for it.

And thank you for all the welcomes, girls! You made me feel great & so excited to be back.

Now, I've made some purchases since I last wrote in here ... I actually discovered thrift shopping, which I though was nonexistent here in Slovenia, but I was so so wrong! I already have a new favourite vintage store and I've been to a few now, and always bought something! Now I have two three thrifted skirts, and two blouses, which I love!

I've also made the successful transition to wearing longer skirts. I used to wear strictly minis, but now that I'm almost 22 and I don't have the best legs anymore (I gained a lot of weight), I really love midis. I have three now, but I'm mostly in love with two: a fuchsia pleated one that is a bit above the knee and a floral pleated one that hits right below the knee. Also got a sheer maxi skirt from H&M which I adore, and have already worn a few times, before it got so cold! I plan on wearing these all the time in the summer!

Also, I've fallen in love with waistcoats. I have two right now, both in black. One is faux leather and has a few silver studs, the other is also black, but very soft material, a bit sporty looking, but it has a blazer-like cut, which I love! I also have my eye on a gorgeous white tailored waistcoat from Zara, and I think I might get it tomorrow as my bigger May item. I've been looking at it for a month, I think that's a sign that I really want it!

As far as shopping goes, I've actually been pretty good. I find it works best when I give myself a budget and spend accordingly. In May, I only bought two trifted things, a blue blouse, and the floral pleated midi skirt. I'm also planning on getting the waistcoat. Then in June, I will get a few smaller items from my board To buy next, and maybe a bikini (but probably not).

All in all, I'm super happy with the purchases I've made since I joined this forum, it has really helped me a lot. I buy nice things and I wear them a lot, and I have a better understanding of quality, even though I am on a budget, since I don't have a lot of money to spend now.

And this is what I will be buying for next month, I think:



Which totals around 200€. And please don't hate me, but I also really like this bra for wearing under sheer shirts when I go out in the evening:



Is it really bad? Is it super tacky? If you think it is, please convince me not to get it. But I think it would look amazing peeking out of that black sheer blouse and worn with the denim shorts ...

I thought trench coats were made to endure all kinds of weather, not just rain. I saw lots of stylish people wearing their trench in town yesterday. It was sunny, no rain.

I tried on a Burberry trench yesterday. Guess what, the sleeves are too long... My arms are still in perfect proportion to my height (which is greater than the mean height of British women)...

Juliette, nice to hear the method is working for you How is your black skirt holding up (the one Ta-ta found)? You mentioned that it was prone to wrinkling? Is it too hot for the summer?

I'm not sure how I feel about the bra You are already showing a lot of skin if you wear shorts and a sheer shirt. I think that your gut feeling telling you that it might be a bit too much is correct I think a pretty lace underneath a sheer shirt would be more sexy. All the sequins and beads would distract from your own beauty, and I don't think clothes should overshadow the person.
