My first and most important rule is - Buy universal but unique clothes that will suit you for at least one year. What's universal for me?
Black black black and one more time black! It is good for every occasion - evening party, business meeting or lazy day. My black mix for today:
Loose sweater Promod 2009
Cotton Scarf H&M (for man) 2009
Longsleeve Blouse Bershka 2009
Faux Leather Leggings by Bershka 2009
Chains H&M 2009 + a gift - little silver cross with black jewel
Ankle Boots by Zara 2007
Leather XXL Bag with studs Zara 2007
+ black eye liner and red lips!
I've got the bag from my mum for 18th birthday. It's the greatest gift I have ever got. It's inspired by Burberry Prorsum Knight studded bag. Well, the quality isn't the best. As you can see - i've lost some of the studs and the zipper is broken too. Boots also have their story - I've found them in Zara, they were so amazing! My size wasn't available so I tried to forget about them. I was dreaming about having them! One day, few months later (!), 1 size too large, but the same, great shoes were waiting for me in another Zara store! I couldn't stop myself. I took them in my hands (so that nobody else could get them), told my boyfriend to go to the cash machine and I bought them with a big smile on my face. They're my favorite and most comfortable boots on high heels!
You want some too? I've found a great mix in Topshop's online store + some bags on Polyvore.
This is my new idea, kind of... a dream coming true.
Fashion industry is the closest thing to me. I grew up in a small town in Poland, close to the capital. One of my parents' business was clothing production for the local market. It started when I was born ('89, the end of communism), so I was growing up in textile shops, secondhand stores, those old needle-women's houses and parent's workshop. I was reading "Burda", pseudo-fashion magazine for designers. I learned how to cut and sew materials. Soon I started designing my own clothes. I always had my own, unique style that nobody in this small town could ever understand. People at school called me 'scarecrow' and 'UFO', teachers were pointing my style out, although I wasn't dirty or wearing cosmic clothes. They just weren't aware of those possibilities that fashion brings. Secondhand stores became my fascination, I was getting back home with bags full of 'useless' treasures. I held them till 2006 when my first crazy business concept came to life. I have opened an online store with secondhand clothes with a friend. Today it's run by this friend of mine, who turned out to be untruthful. But I don't regret leaving it. I've got maaaany more dreams to fulfill :)
Today I'm running my own advertising, photography and modeling agency. I am engaged to the great man. I am going to built a beautifull home. But there just one thing that I can't fully explore - my fashion fascination. I always wanted to be a model, designer, journalist, stylist, photographer and trend-setter. I know what I want to wear, but I just can't be true and constant with that. I love fashion that's connected to rock. Glam rock, moth, 80's style. I am so delighted that 2009 trends are so close to my image! But there are still two problems - I love also pin-up, vintage, rustic, a little sporty also romantic and chic style. The result is a closet full of unsuitable clothes. The next issue is that I usually end up sitting by my computer in jeans, random blouse and sweater 'cause it's easy, quick and comfortable.
How to solve it? I'm going to post once a week my combinations of clothes, accessories and shoes, my own designs and photos of people whose style I admire. I am going to show you my fashion alter ego and give myself a fashion therapy! :)
So... my name is Natalie and hope you guys will have fun here!
