An LBD with a twist.
Here we go, right in the middle of a holiday season I would say. Christmas is almost over and we are on the highway to the New Year Eve's party! Are you excited? I am. I literally can't wait for the NYE as it's one of my favorite celebrations throughout the year. Even though I'm not a child anymore, there's still something magical about that night. And how do you feel about it? 


So, the holiday season is a time for dressing up. Some of us spend days or even weeks planning out their festive outfits. But what if you are a last minute lady? What can you get in this case? I would recommend something simple. Just like this little black dress from Arzu Kara. It's super simple on one hand, yet with a twist on the other hand. In general, I would recommend you to look into Arzu Kara's range as the brand has quite a number of dresses that can go for a holiday season and beyond.


Speaking of this LBD, it perfectly matches the idea. First of all, it can be mixed with rose gold sandals and go perfect for a Christmas of NYE celebrations. Secondly, it can go perfect for an event or a ballet evening. I already tried it and it made such a good combination with over the knee boots and Stuudio Nahk bag. So I would also add that this Arzu Kara LBD is about practicality. A perfect investment, isn't it?

Of course, #madeinEngland.
This year has been fruitful on discoveries and new experiences. And December is not an exception. So one of my latest, and pretty interesting, discoveries is a British designer brand called Arzu Kara. The brand from a beautiful city of Henley-on-Thames. Okay, I've never been to this town but the pictures show it this way - small buildings, English architecture and cute streets. Now should I put it on my travel list now?


So, Arzu Kara. If you look into the brand's product range, you'll notice a lot of simple yet super elegant pieces. Pieces that will fit every single occasion of a modern females life. What I like about this brand is that Arzu Kara empowers women. And as we all know, empowered women empower women. It's total true. 


Now let's talk about this jersey dress with some lace-y details. I, personally, adore how simple and at the same time elegant the dress is. And, of course, the deep green shade just adds to this fashion game. I would say that the dress is perfect for a theater, an elegant event or a Friday dinner out. In other words, for some simple yet public-much occasion. Because this dress is made to be shown off.

10 Facts about Me


You probably didn't know.
December 12, 2018

A match made in heaven.
As you may have noticed so far I am a huge fan of practicality. This is even outlined in the name of the blog. I adore everything that can be worn on daily basis. And, also, everything that can be played around again and again. But my way to practicality wasn't an easy one, it took me quite some time, I mean years, to master the skill. And, of course, to form my now practical wardrobe. By means of which I can mix and match different stuff and gain quite a number of different combinations.


What I love about QooQoo is that exact practicality that Alyona has put at the heart of her brand. I would say that QooQoo is all about simplicity with a twist. Here we have simple sweatshirts and t-shirts but with interesting and funny prints, and embroideries. Here we also have such essential pieces of our everyday life, like hats and leggings... also upgraded with prints and embroidery. In other words, it's something that can spice up your daily routine. And also help you show some attitude.


What I wanted to achieve by means of this outfit, is to picture that ordinary day of my life. It's that kind of a situation when you can find me wearing skinny jeans and oversized bomber jacket. By the way, I found this jacket in a local vintage store and fell in love with both an oversize effect and power red shade. And it cost me almost nothing! What else is required for a simple outfit formula? Well, some good details, like a bag and boots. And a little twist - in this case it's all about QooQoo sweatshirt. Oh, and a cup of coffee. I believe I do consist of coffee for like 75% these days...

Back with #madeinLatvia.

If you remember, my story with this brand started about 2,5 years ago. Right before I got swallowed by a great depression... don't know why, but I've noticed that lately people started using a 'great depression' phrase rather than a deep or severe ones. So let me also use it as it perfectly outlines my condition of that period. Now, 2 years later I feel way better, due to some professional help and special medicine, and I finally feel ready to continue my story with QooQoo.


So, as you see there is a big difference between today's story and the last one, Blushed Nude, from summer 2016. So much has changed over this time. And I'm not just talking about myself and inner changes. But it's actually wort it to point out the difference in preferences. Because, if back in the days I could choose a more feminine stuff, today it's all about more daring one, like this sweatshirt dress in power red and with funny embroidery...

A mix of contrasts.
Festive season mood anyone? Yes, I already am in that festive, Christmas much, mood. I know, I know. It must be too early for that yet, but anticipation of that magical period is a good way to brighten up a gloomy November. And what really help me in battling the most depressing month is this Mini Georgia beauty from Paul's Boutique Cruise '19 Collection. Have to say, that the collection is outstanding due to the use of colors and mix of textures and prints.


And Mini Georgia is a good example of Paul's Boutique seasonal strategy, or better say concept. If you remember, previously I tried to find connections between one of Paul's Boutique pieces and this or that area of London town. Speaking of this mini beauty, I would say it's a reflection of London itself. Why? Because London is full of differences - different nationalities, cultures, styles, areas, architectural directions... At first it seems that London is full of contrasts that are unmixable... but when you take a closer look, you realize how good it all complements each other. Like a puzzle pieces.


When it comes to the outfit of the day, here everything is pretty simple. First of all, I wanted this combination to reflect the color scheme of the bag. So it looks quite appropriate for the end of autumn period. I mean not too festive yet. Also, by means of the outfit elements I wanted to play around different styles. Like, classic coat and blazer, modern jeans and highly trendy boots. All together it creates a pretty contrast-full combination, where each element complements another one.

Mid-autumn favorites.
I bet you already started thinking I'm going to spend this month without my beloved Light in the Box finds report. But you were wrong! Here we go!


Look 1.

I am a huge fan of oversized sweatshirts that can be worn as dresses. And when it comes in a combination with over the knee boots than it's a real blast! So, to be honest, I kind of stole this sweatshirt from LitB men's section. But it's so warm and cozy, so I don't have any regrets. 


Look 2.

As I already said in some of those previous stories, for me autumn is all about that mix of formal and casual vibes. That's why I couldn't help but go for a white shirt and classy jeans combination. Also couldn't escape mixing the two with the waist bag and perspex heels. Such a perfect outfit for such a warm October!

Grey is my new favorite color...
Hello, pumpkinitos! How are you doing? Now the night before writing this story I was lying in my bed and thinking about everything that happened over past two months. These days I tend to talk about what's going on in my life way less than I used to. It's just because I'm trying to keep it all to myself and enjoy it as much as I can. Things have changed lately. I'm not a full-time blogger anymore and have to say I like this fact. Despite the fact that autumn is quite a depressive season, I do feel myself awakened... more than ever before. I do feel so alive now...


Speaking of today's story, it's all about check pattern, primarily. A pattern I've been quite obsessed with lately. Now the thing is for me autumn is about formal vibes, that's why my peak of checks adoration is happening right now. Now the thing is, I was actually looking for formal-like pants in checks, but then I found this gorgeous dress and fell in love with it.


When it comes to the total outfit of the day, then I wanted it to be somehow a semi-formal one. Semi-formal and semi-stylish, if I'm to be precise. What I like here is sure a combination of off-shoulder thing and thigh high boots. It happens to be like an icing to this strawberry fashion cake (I just don't like cherry, you know). What about ALEXA bag and sunglasses? Both add those formal and stylish vibes, yet keep it well-balanced.
