Glass jungle where dreams are made... 

Or the glass jungle that reflects the scenery of a little Eastern European city of Riga. I love the opposite side of Daugava river. Its embankment gives a pretty fascinating view on the Old Town. The older part of the city with metal roosters on top of churches and cathedrals. And when this picture is reflected in giant windows... speechless.

It's been just a week or two ago when a Trend Report story took us around check trend that is growing bigger day by day. As a real blazer addict I couldn't escape but expand my collection with few checked pieces. By saying few I'm just giving a clue this s.Oliver blazer in classic check pattern is not the only player. While the second one is yet to come out into the limelight, this piece uses the privilege. And the privilege is being wrapped in a classy yet casual outfit combination. Have to admit I adore Autumn/Winter season for opportunity to use over the knee boots and turtle necks on daily basis and, moreover, mix and match it together. Even despite the fact I'm not a cold weather kind of person. 

What I added to this classy yet casual outfit combination, apart from checked blazer, is a vintage bag. My recent find. And one of definitely best finds during my short, but still productive vintage hunt experience. Just like in a very ordinary store, in vintage one it takes special features to find a piece that suits you perfectly and is still of a good quality. Quality factor also applies to such category as accessories. Maybe in even greater extent. Simply because if clothes can somehow be fixed, there's nothing you really can do regarding bags, shoes, belts, whatever. This vintage bag is a perfect piece inside and out. What I love about it is the fact it has a structured form that allows leaving it opened at certain times without being afraid stuff will start falling out.
