R.I.P Oscar de la Renta

Beauty&Fashion

Yesterday, the world has lost a truly inspirational and iconic designer – Oscar de la Renta. He died at age 82 from cancer. Throughout his life, the Dominican designer worked with Cristobal Balenciaga, dressed first lady Jacqueline Kennedy and established his company in New York in 1965 – that’s only a few of his many achievements.
De la Renta’s signature was timeless femininity in his designs: elegant and flattering silhouettes, full girly skirts, dresses cinched at the waist, floral patterns and soft, pastel colors. His ready-to-wear creations made label Oscar de la Renta known and beloved by many celebrities, he was an inspiration to other designers and an idol to the simple fans of fashion, like me. Although my personal style is quite masculine and edgy, I adore the softness and feminine feeling Oscar’s clothes bring. I don’t think I could pull off such grace and delicacy.
In honor of Oscar de la Renta, I decided to share with you my favorite designs from his collections (pre-fall, fall, spring and resort) from these past few years (2011-2015). Photos are taken from style.com site.

#NoFilter Autumn

Sightseeing

Hi!

Today (Sunday), I visited my grandparents who live in the countryside and walked around their garden for a bit picking up leaves and enjoying the amazing weather. Autumn has never been the season I like because it used to rain all the time in Lithuania. However, this fall is completely different – the sun is shinning all day, there is less rain than before and the temperature is at least 15 Celsius (59 F). Bellow you will find a few photos I took, all of them are unedited because the beauty of nature needs no filters:)

Haul: Autumn/Winter wardrobe UPDATE

Beauty&Fashion

Hello!

Recently, I have been shopping and picked a few really great pieces for my wardrobe. I want to share them with you and talk a bit about how I am going to style them.

The first piece is simple – my high top Chuck Taylor’s finally arrived. I’ve got classical all-stars Converse shoes made from white canvas.  They practically look good with everything: circle skirts, jeans, skater dresses, shorts and etc.  And who doesn’t have Converse shoes? Everybody needs at least one pair of them.

Price: 44 euros (I bought mine on Amazon)

The second thing I bought is this chiffon oversized sleeveless see-through top from NewYorker (My every haul has to have at least one item of clothing from NewYorker). It’s shorter at the front and longer in the back. It’s black with red lip stain print. I can see myself wearing it with skinny jeans and heels or boots and a black wool jacket, with body con skirt or even black body con dress underneath. I am also going to try it with a circle skirt and belt it at the waist.

Price: 3 euros – bought it on sale at NewYorker

The third thing is this TOPSHOP jumper. It really thick, a bit oversized and has pink/blue flowery print. I have been wearing it a lot, although, I’ve just bought it like 3 weeks ago. It’s really comfortable and looks nice with jeans and converse shoes.

Price: about 1 euro – found it at a second hand store.

P.S. I wore it today with skinny jeans and white converse. As an accessory, I put on three bracelets to complement each part of my outfit – white bracelet for white converse; pink and blue bracelets for the jumper!

The last piece I’ve bought is the piece I am most happy about. I have been looking for a good winter coat and couldn’t find one. But store BERSHKA was my savior. This parka style coat is super versatile. It’s in this dark brown mustardy color; has huge pockets and can be cinched in at the waist. It is also fur lined, so it’s super cozy and warm. The fur can be removed and I even think I can wear it separately! Parka without the fur is also great when the weather hasn’t gotten super cold yet. It’s like 3 coats in 1.

Price : 100 euros (Get it here)

Fashion : Autumn #OOTD

Beauty&Fashion

Hello!

Can you believe that it is almost the end of September? I am still living in the summer, but this morning the weather in Lithuania truly showed that it was autumn. So, I decided to share with you one of my outfits for autumn. It simple, comfortable but still stylish. It has edgy, sporty and masculine vibe with a touch of femininity.

Let’s start with the clothes:

Skinny black jeans from a local boutique

Dark purple vest top from NewYorker

Khaki color over-sized shirt – I used to hate khaki color, I had a khaki coat when I was younger and I would fall into a dark mood every time I put it on, but I really love this shirt – found it this weekend at a thrift store – it cost me 1 Euro – absolute bargain. I can wear it loose, tucked into pants or a skirt or even tied into a knot at my waist.

Shoes – classic low top Converse all stars in white.

Hair – in the first photo my hair are simply put to one side, but after that I put them into ponytail – it goes better with the look.

Accessories : Chunky silver necklace from NewYorker

H&M silver rings in different width. H&M shop does best rings ever.

My bag is really old, it has two smaller straps and one long strap, some metallic studs outlining the shape. Color – dark brown (real leather).

Nails: I painted my nails with Rimmel London sparkly pink polish to add femininity and some color to this masculine and quite dark outfit. I am not particularly happy with this nail polish, it last only a couple of days. It might be because it is quote old. The color khaki is really neutral , so pink goes perfectly with it.

So, I hope you liked these short style post. The statement piece of the look is khaki shirt, which I found at the thrift store – you don’t need to spend a lot of money to look great. Most importantly, dress yourself in the way that makes you feel good! Have a great week and don’t let autumn clouds darken your mood!
