Merry Christmas

light it up

October 22, 2013


I know that Christmas is still far away, but every year I'm always all excited about this time of year, 
and I always start to think and search for Christmas decor ideas early. 
So, the lighting idea I came up with last year, but I only decorated my daughter's room with string lights and  one window in our bedroom. I really loved it and quite frankly we kept these decorations for a while. The atmosphere especially during the night was really amazing. So, this year I'm all into decorating my entire home with lights. Not only my children's rooms and our bedroom with string lights but also put lights downstairs on the rail of the stairs as well as the patio door in the dinning room. 
I really like the decorative lighting from Ikea and these ideas below from Pinterest.

cape me

October 17, 2013


Now, it's my turn to be sick...and since I haven't gotten any better, I'm a little frustrated...there is nothing better than sitting at home these past two weeks...
So, I'm definitely looking forward to lower temperatures to get these viruses out of here :) and I especially can't wait to just get out of the house.

And, what is the best way to de-stress...?
 Shopping, but this time only online window shopping :P 
So, following one of the fall trend this year, capes are definitely in. I'm still not sure about getting one, but these three are definitely the most appealing to me. What do I love about capes?...I think that they add a bit of character to the even most simple look, and they look so cozy. Just perfect for fall.

Really love the color and black piping of Zara one.
Burberry is way to perfect, just the price yikes.
H&M you may remember from this post.

October crushes

October 9, 2013


I assume that most of us have fashion crushes, pieces that we actually covet, but not necessarily need....or maybe we do need, but not necessarily can afford at a particular time.
Here are things that I would love to have in my wardrobe...pieces that are in my favorite colors, 
pieces that are worth investing since they are very versatile...
my October crushes and ideas how to wear them. 
Simple, yet chic....

It took me a while to convince my lovely yet conservative husband to start this project...
but finally he said YES :)
So, everybody please welcome my newborn little voguish world which is a take on parenthood with a touch of style. Ideas, inspirations, kid's fashion, but also all about parenthood challenges and all the little things that make my life with kids sweeter.

one piece, three ways

October 2, 2013


White pants during fall...? Why not, especially when we can style them in different ways. 
To be honest it took me a while to give white jeans a chance not only during spring and summer season...
but now I'm all over this trend and love to wear them with my wellies and cozy yet stylish sweatshirts. 
Or pair them with Isabel Marant for H&M booties ( I'm really hoping to get them :) 
and a cool top and a moto jacket.
So, here are my ideas...how to wear white pants in fall.
One piece, three ways to wear...
Which is your favorite?

Isabel Marant for H&M

September 26, 2013


Here it comes again...another great collaboration (after 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target )...
Isabel Marant for H&M. 
This time, I'm even more excited because I just adore Isabel Marant as a designer. I simply love her nonchalance and effortless aesthetics which is my kind of perfection when it comes to a perfect style.
 And, a bit of French style is always in style.
My must haves... definitely these slouchy, fringed booties which I want so badly....the printed silk top and this dress, not mention these earrings and really cool sequin heels. 
So, I'm really looking forward to this collection which hits the stores November 14th. 

And here is my favorite look from the collection...

fall nail colors

September 25, 2013


I think fall is one of my favorite seasons...especially when it's still sunny and warm and it doesn't rain.
I love the changing colors, the fresh air without this awful humidity...
And speaking of colors, recently I was looking for some nail polish for fall and to find the perfect ones, 
I was definitely inspired by Pantone Fashion Color Report for fall 2013 which is full of rich and deep colors just perfect for this season. And, since I'm a little obsessed with having my nails done :), I'm definitely willing to try most of these colors. My favorite...Samba, Turbulence, Acai, Mykonos Blue and Deep Lichen Green.

What is you favorite nail color for fall?

Because it's cooler outside, I can finally wear my perfect fall outfit...
as you may have noticed, black is my must have color this fall
 ( actually, not only this fall....I just love this color and not just because it has slimming benefits...ha ha....but because it's classic & chic...and with a combination of appropriate accessories, you simply can't go wrong). 
So, I paired all black pieces with a brown faux fur vest which I got from my sister last year and I didn't have a chance to wear often. 
Now, I'm looking for a grey one ...similar to this one.

one piece, three ways

September 20, 2013

It's official....my trend obsession this fall are definitely grey colored and jeweled tops...
and this jeweled chandelier sweatshirt from J.Crew is too perfect. 
Love the color, love the silhouette and love the little chandeliers, 
which make this sweatshirt fancy and so cute.
Perfect piece for a perfect holiday look or a perfect gift...
plus, J.Crew is having a 25% sale both in stores and online. 

Here are my ideas how to wear it...
just check them out....

what I like & what I got

September 16, 2013


I feel a little bittersweet....
I was really looking forward to the latest fashion collaboration  3.1 Phillip Lim for Target
 But, due to a busy morning,
(I just couldn't go to Target instead of cheering for my husband at his Triathlon..., right?)
 I finally made it to Target ( unfortunately...) in the evening. 

And, even though I visited three stores, the collection was mostly gone...well, maybe the best pieces....and it's not like I wanted everything from the collection...I just felt the urge to see the collection...and primarily these two pajamas sets, the Floral Print and the Tan/Black,  and also this  White/Black drop dress and a grey sweater dress (unfortunately, only the large sizes where left ) or even just one bag...

Even though the pieces that were left weren't bad...they were just not my style...
nevertheless, I fell in love with this shirt (the color combination & print are really nice )
which  I'm going to pair with my coated pants and heels or just jeans and flats. 

What are you favorite pieces from this collaboration?


weekend style

September 13, 2013


Today's sets are definitely inspired by the current weather here in Cleveland...
So, after several really hot & humid days, it's now freezing and raining outside....
Forget the shorts, forget just t-shirts, it's time to take out fall sweaters, sweatshirts and jackets.
I hope it will get warm by Sunday, because my husband has his triathlon that day and I'm going to cheer him on with the kids. So, I am really looking forward to Sunday, as long as it doesn't rain....

The first set is definitely a night out look. Now, who said that we can't wear white pants after Labor Day....black and white in my book is always in season, including white pants.
And, I really love the jacket, not necessarily the price... 

The second look is great for running errands out and about....
nothing beats a grey sweatshirt and jeans for that.
 As for the purse and shoes, the colors just make me smile when it is so gray outside :)

Have a great weekend!

just black

September 12, 2013


I'm a little obsessed with the color black
and there isn't anything more appealing for fall than a black (grey could be too :) long sleeved dress 
and tall leather boots. 
The ones that I'm eyeing are from H&M. And, I have been really looking for such a pair for a while now.

So, today's outfit inspiration is all black with a touch of silver ( the bracelet ) and a black tote.
 Jeans, leather pants or skirt with frill  paired with a faux fur vest or just a sweater would look great too.

Recently, I've become obsessed with tops with built-in jewelry.
 And, if you remember from my fall wish list this stripe necklace tee, which I'm still eyeing,
with built-in jewelry is definitely my must have this fall & winter.

So, besides this tee <3,
I really love this Old Navy embellished sweatshirt which, even though it is a little baggy, will work great with skinny pants (mine Zara coated jeans) and black heels (Zara) providing an effortless look.

Plus, during the weekend I discovered really cool site Threadflip, where I purchased this amazing J.Crew necklace at a really great discount :)...the only downside was the color...a bit orange...but why do we have nail polish for...yes...I painted it in hot red and now it matches perfectly with the H&M striped tee.  


fall wish list #2

September 6, 2013


I really can't decide which of these J. Crew tops is my favorite...
you can never go wrong with a stylish white t-shirt or black & white silk top...
tee with built-in jewelry is definitely a fall must have.

Perfect shades for fall...
Ciaté

cute hair ties

Kate Spade New York bag
grey Tory Burch flats & Zara pointed flat shoes

What is on your fall wish list?

statement jewelry

September 4, 2013


Don't just make a statement this fall... Make the statement by pairing your outfit with a big necklace or earrings at your next social outing.
Statement jewelry is just perfect with simple sweaters and shirts and will add chic even to the most simple look.

When it comes to statement jewelry, J.Crew is my # 1 place to go.
 ( actually, I love everything about J.Crew, not necessarily the prices, but yea, it's definitely one of my favorite brands ...)
 So, if you want stylish statements, you can find something special here like # 3 & # 4.

Baublebar has a nice selection too...just look at this emerald kryptonite bib 
or check out these or those earrings at Nordstrom 
or #5 ( splurge ...) and #7 at Shopbop.

My to go outfit for fall...
sweater, jeans and statement necklace.

Maybe, I'm not a dress person, but this French Connection dress I just adore. It's perfect, since it can be worn with heels, making the look perfect for a night out, or with flats to get more a more casual look. I recently wore it with heels to a wedding, but I am looking forward for the occasion to pair the dress with flats and black tights.

My other style mix is my favorite to go outfit  for walks or any errands with my kids.
 It's comfortable & simple but still stylish...

gray crush

August 29, 2013


When I think about my favorite color for fall  ( besides black ), it's definitely gray...and all of its shades....
For me, it's a vivid type of black, that pairs well with any color like white or bright colors such as yellow, pink, red and of course black. No matter the color, gray will always gives a very modern look. Plus, you can put together different hues of gray for a monochromatic look that will always look perfect.
 Because there is beauty in gray....

August 26, 2013




After a hot summer, I always can't wait for fall...especially when it's cooler outside but still nice enough to be outdoors...without the rain and gloomy air... it's just perfect....
So, while waiting for chilly temperatures, here is a few things that would be perfect for fall...in my favorite color scheme black and grey.

 grey dress and sweatshirt (yea, I'm still coveting this sweatshirt, so please go on sale soon :)
 black leather pants
( these  are a super splurge, but here and there are similar ones at more reasonable prices :)
 hint of pink...just look at these super cute Hunter boots
roomy bag

the bag

August 19, 2013


I'm definitely a shoe and a bag girl....and when it comes to shoes and even more with bags, it's good to invest in quality pieces even though they usually cost more....
( and believe me sometimes it takes long time to save for a desire piece...but the satisfaction is priceless :)
so, these Sabrina Pilewicz bags are my new obsession :)
I just adore them!

go with a t-shirt

August 13, 2013


There isn't anything more perfect when it comes to a simple, causal look as a combination of a good pair of jeans and a nice t-shirt....
and Zara really has a good selection of printed t-shirts for that perfect causal look...
so, check out my ideas ( in very neutral color scheme ) with these four really cool tops...
