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.

Style inspiration: skater skirt !

Beauty&Fashion

Hello everybody, how is your Saturday?

For today I prepared a fashion post. So, while snacking on chocolate chip cookies I am going to tell you about the most versatile clothing item ever invented. in my opinion, this well-deserved  tittle goes to the skater/circle skirt. It comes in variety of colors and flatters every body shape. My skirt is black, because it is my favorite color (keep in mind, I am no goth:) and I am going to show you two ways how to style it. Inspiration for these looks comes from a TeenVogue magazine, which celebrates individuality and simplicity while looking gorgeous and true to yourself. So here we go.

The main piece – black skater skirt is form NewYorker.

1.Style – Sporty/Edgy

ImageAs InStyle magazine maintains, classical denim with a worn out look is on trend again. The collar shirt is from H&M and I rolled up the sleeves to give it more of a grungy look. The shoes are simple sneakers in a bold color (any tennis shoe would work here too). Accessories: stud bracelets I have made myself – they add an edgy touch and a sparkly grey broach in a shape of lizard is from FashionZone. It gives a bright and vibrant feel to the neck area without being to much. Statement necklace ,in this case, would not work, because it would just overcrowd the top of the outfit.

2. Style – Glamorous, but still Comfortable

ImageThe top of the outfit is this simple grey T-shirt with interesting ruffles on the sleeves. Brand – Madonna’s MaterialGirl. Shoes are last year’s dark blue flats with studs. (However, flats are taking over the fashion world this year as seen on the runway of Simone Rocha and Rochas at fashion week). I bought mine in a local boutique. Accessories: statement necklace in white and black colors with a bit of sparkle – this was a gift from my aunt. Bracelet – another gift, but this time from my friend. It is a snake wrapped around a wrist like a Isabelle’s whip in the Mortal Instruments series (told you, I am a geek too).

So these are two of many ways how to style a skater skirt. If you are cold, you can add leggings or tights underneath both of these combinations Like I said, it flatters every body shape and everybody can make it their own. I know that I for sure will be styling this skirt in a variety of ways this summer and these two are just couple of them. I hoped you enjoyed this post and maybe it gave you some inspiration. Bye:)
