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!

Summer favorites/must-haves

Beauty&Fashion

Hello!

Let me begin by saying that I have been planning this blog post for months. In the beginning in was supposed to be spring favorites but, as we are in the middle of summer, I got to change it up a bit.

So, I hope you will enjoy this post and it will be helpful as well as entertaining for you.

Beauty products:

During summer, my skin becomes dry and sun burnt, thus I need great moisturizers:

*Avon Care Rich Moisture face cream – I love it because it is not too rich. I mean it hydrates my skin but doesn’t make it greasy.

*ISANA Limited Edition body cream with pomegranates and figs – it smells amazingly and it is perfect to use after sunbathing.

*Avon Care hand & nail creme with glycerin – after using it my hands became so soft as they never have been before.

*EOS lip balm (strawberry sorbet flavor) – the smell of it is so fresh and natural.

Accessories:

*Sunglasses are a must during summer. Mine are from NewYorker and they have this really cool ombre effect.

*Recently I have been wearing a lot of rings. They add something special to every outfit without overpowering it and being too much. Colorful ones are from NewYorker, the one with flowers is from Avon, golden ones are from H&M and turquoise one is handmade. I painted a thick layer of nail polish on a coin and then topped it off with another layer of top coat. After it dried completely I glued it on a ring base. I love turquoise color of that one, it goes with practically everything.

Shoes: I love wearing wedges and these one have korke heal. The color of them is this pretty pink/orange coral and the front of them is covered with golden metal. It sparkles wonderfully in the sun. I bought them at a local boutique and they were so cheap, such a bargain.

Clothes:

I love sleeveless shirts. I think they are an amazing way to look stylish and sophisticated and at the same time to stay comfortable.

*The light green ones is very simple, casual from the brand Gina Laura.

*The motley cotton ones are from Stradivarius. I love that quirky, almost tribal print. Quirky prints are very in right now as ELLE UK suggests.

*Bottom left ones are from New Yorker. They have sparkly beaded collar and V form cutout at the back. They are also longer at the back and shorter at the front.

*The last ones, black with pink Eiffel towers are from H&M. They have chiffon front and cotton back.

The staple piece that I love wearing all summer long is long chiffon skirt. I have one in dark blue color and I am in love with it. Long skirts were huge trend last year but I am taking it to 2014 summer.I hope you enjoyed this slightly different post and have a great summer.
