Those outfits sound lovely fashionista-ta, especially the first one. Sorry about your broken hand! And you're lucky you're able to wear ballet flats already, it's so cold where I live and I can't WAIT for spring to finally arrive, I have so many plans for my wardrobe.

Today I'm wearing a H&M scalloped 3/4 length sleeve blouse in a salmon colour, I love it, buy the material could be better. I paired it with a black skater skirt. I find that this shape of skirt really fits me the best because of my wide hips, but the skirt is far from perfect... It's cotton and really not structured at all, and I prefer something thicker. I need to find a good box pleat/A-line/skater skirt, I feel like it's such a staple in my wardrobe.

The blouse:

hm.com

The skirt, except mine isn't belted:

newlook.co.uk

The rest of my outfit is completely un-fashionable as it's far too cold. But I'm soooo excited for spring, I've already done some shopping and I've really limited myself with the number of pieces I can buy. But I'll definitely go over the 4-5 pieces as I don't have the very basics!

I'm excited about the S/S 13 must-haves thread, too. I already have my colour palette planned.

life would totally go on

I hope this thread comes to life again.

Today I wore:
  • oversized lightwash denim jacket from ASOS
  • white lace skater dress from ASOS
  • long watch pendant necklace in silver from ASOS Men
  • ribbed dark grey tights
  • black lace-up heels from Deichmann
  • quilted bag, similar to the one on the pic, from Stradivarius


my collage, pics are from asos.com, polyvore.com, deichmann.si

The jacket, dress and necklace I bought recently and they were really good buys, I'll be wearing them a lot for sure. The only problem is, the dress is insanely short (scandalously so, as my mother put it ), so I'll have to get a petticoat or a slip to wear under it...

Giiiiirls (and guys) where are you? We need more posters in this thread! I love my outfit today, I'm wearing:
  • black laceup ankle boots, the same shoes from the pic above
  • black opaque thick tights
  • my new striped sweater from Zara
  • black peplum skirt from H&M
  • a black chain necklace (gift from my mother-in-law) & a silver spike necklace from Regal Rose
  • my black coat with silver detailing from H&M

The only things that REALLY doesn't go with my outfit is my bag, because I was in such a hurry and didn't have time to change it... But when I get home I'll put my things in my other (prettier) bag. :p

I'll post a list of things I'm working with when the time comes. I organized my clothing rack yesterday and I already have about 6 items I'm super excited for in the spring! Get warm already, weather!

Right now I have no clue what to wear. That happens a lot at the time and has nothing to do with my wardrobe but my hair. I got a shorter haircut back in January and it has its own life at the moment. Therefore outfits are impossible to plan since, to me, the hair goes with the outfit.

Yesterday however I wore:

- Black quilted skater skirt
- Denim shirt
- Burgundy sneakers
- Black tights
- Parka coat
- Black leather mittens
- Grey, knitted circle scarf
- Canvas bag











All pics are mine

Managed to make me hair look real descent and 50's like (think Olivia Newton John in Grease) and pull together an outfit.

I wore this but without the hat and the spectacles, and with the skirt from yesterday (pictured above). My boyfriend though I look real nice and my friend thought I looked like a teacher from the 40's





Pics taken by me.

I am considering going to the attic to find the skirt I am wearing in the first picture of this post but I think it ended up there in the first place because I have worn it so many times that it is not really black anymore. I am considering if it would be possible to make a new one myself. I love that skirt.

Adorable Betina!

I also have a very similar black skirt, same length and flare, and I could seriously wear it daily. I have a casual one in linen with pockets, and another one in satin which is more dressy. Love them both. Very easy to sew yourself.

I love your black canvas bag, where is it from?

Thx a bunch! I think I will look into making one myself. Should be possible when I can look at how this one is sown. I miss it a lot since it is perfect with everything.

The bag is from Sofie Schnoor. I think it is a danish brand? I love it since it is HUGE and therefore perfect when I have to bring lots of stuff with me or when I go grocery shopping on my way home from work (like I did yesterday). It is a year since I got it though.

Yeah...just what I need for my books and Macbook, for when my Longchamp tote is a little too dressy/stuffy. Thanks for informing me of Sofie Schnoor, nice shoes and I like the laid-back glamour
