Thrift haul (Klaipėda)

Beauty&Fashion

Hello!

Do you remember that I’ve promised to do a thrift haul? Well, I’m keeping my promise!

So, last weekend I visited my aunt who lives in Klaipeda (sightseeing post about that here). Both she and I love thrift-ing, so she took me to the best second-hand stores in her town. We went to at least 5 shops but all of them were from one of two chains of stores: Rubija or Humana (their webpage). Humana has different prices for different clothes and Rubija weights the clothes and you pay for the kilograms and not for individual pieces.

I got way too many tops and a pair of boots which I am extremely excited about. Disclaimer: I am not showing off! I just want to show you that you can get nice stuff on a tight budget. I only paid approximately 10 euros for all of the following:

Firstly, I’ve got this blue and white plaid wide shirt. It’s from the Atmosphere brand. I love wearing shirts like these and have been living in this particular one this whole week. It’s so soft and comfortable and it literally looks good this everything!

Next, I’ve got a simple high-neck grey T-shirt (inspired by Grace Helbig). It’s from a brand SOHO.

Red is one of my favorite colors, so I bought this simple top by Hampton Republic.

Jean jackets are a must for me during spring and summer, so, I felt brave and got this white one! I thought about doing some DIY on it, maybe some tie-dye but I really don’t want to ruin it because it looks nice as it is. Brand – Holiday.

As you might already know, I am a huge GaGa fan so I picked up this black T-shirt with her face on it. I have actually seen her perform live ! I’ve been to one of her Born This Way Ball concerts and this T-shirt is from the merchandise line of that particular tour! I paid cents for it when I could have paid at least 50 euros for it during the concert! A bargain!

P.S. I’ve the same picture that is on the T-shirt as a poster on my wall.

I get dizzy by looking at these next 2 items. The first one is slightly cropped and quite wide stripy top from NEXT. it looks really nice with high waisted pants and skater skirts!

Second item, which induces dizziness, is this white and black no sleeves top with a pattern made of oval shapes. It hangs really nicely, though, it has quite deep cut at the front. However, it pairs up nicely with tuxedo pants! Brand – essence.

Second to last piece was a nod to my childhood! I grew up with Disney movies, I still love them (review of the new Cinderella), I love sporty style, so, this was a perfect blend of all the things I love. It’s a basketball type mesh top with Minnie on it! The back is completely white, so, I’ve got a few white tank tops to wear underneath it because it is very see-through.

And the purchase which I am the happiest about is these Mod 70s inspired boots! (BTW, Mod 70s are on trend this year). I almost didn’t get them, I actually walked out of the store and went back just to get them! They have a white heel and sole and they also have cut-outs at the back! I have only now noticed that one of them is missing a strap but I can fix that: I am planing to make a strap out of a simple black belt.

So, these are all the things I bought! I hope you liked this haul! I will probably do OOTD post next month and a few of these piece will be featured there too.! Have a nice day!

Outdoor #OOTD + A/W 14 trends

Beauty&Fashion

Hi!

I hope all of you are having a great Sunday! For this week’s fashion post, I decided to show you my favorite (recently) piece of clothing in action – my new parka. I have already done a post about it. (Click here). But now, I want to show you some photos of it in a normal light and how does it look when I put it on. I paired it with simple rolled up blue jeans and high top Converse All Stars sneakers. On my neck, you can see a mustard (orang-y brown) color knitted snood which I made myself. (DIY!!!). (Sorry for the weird color in the close-up photo – snood is much brighter in real life, like in the full outfit photo).

I am in love with this parka and I can’t wait for the weather to get cold so that I could wear it all the time. Moreover, according to GLAMOUR UK magazine’ September issue’s article by Lucy Walker, military details, edgy street-wear, faux-fur and hoods are trending big time and this parka nails all of these trends! 1 parka – 4 trends. What is more, I like the fact that high fashion isn’t taking itself as seriously as it did before. Ironic bags, T-shirts and dresses at MOSCHINO look cool and brighten my mood every time I see them. (Video from the runway show by ELLE.) I have full wardrobe of colorful slogan T-shirts which I am going to pair with neutral black or grey skirts, jeans or trousers so as not to upstage the main piece – fun T-shirt. In addition, knits are in fashion once again and a few shelves of sweaters and cardigans definitely won’t stay in my wardrobe unloved and unworn. Space elements are also hot this season and as a huge Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy (movie review) fan, I will finally be able to wear merchandise and looks stylish.

I hope you liked this short post about A/W 14 trends and how I will wear them. What are your staple pieces for A/W and are there any trends you fancy this season? Have a great week!
