Summer is passing by as the opportunity to wear girly, floral dresses, so I am catching the last moment. Besides, there already are New Fall/Winter collections in stores and I can't wait to update my closet, as I left all my winter/autumn clothes in Riga. Are you waiting Autumn or still living at full blast in Summer?
Last month I had a great opportunity- my good friend and an up-coming operator Nikita Popkov offered to make a short movie about me, my works and passion. Here are back stage photos of the1st day - they were captured by Anastasia Sirokova and thanks to her I have an admirable portfolio. Can't wait to see the result!!!
I cannot say that I am a romantic and girly style total lover, because I love to see myself wearing black/white clothes or even look brutal and rock. But this Summer season I'm all into pastel, white and tender tones. I hope you don´t take me too boring, because of my romantic passion. I promise this Fall I will be harder!
Found these beauties in Stradivarius store and realized that they can complete and excel every total white look. And as you have noticed I am a white color lover. These blue shoes look really exiting because of the transparent heels. Someone can associate the transparent heel with Cinderella shoes or with stripper high heel shoes. But yet designers have reinvented this idea of the transparent shoe and have revived it into trend. It's now classy, stylish, sexy, chic and daring all in one. So go for it!
The best place in Barcelona where dreams come true is the Passeig de Gracia street. My dream came yesterday - it was FURLA white bag. Some month ago I was craving for Furla candy bag, but when I saw this one I realized it was made for me!
Sometimes it is just enough to climb to the top of the mountain and view the scenery of the deep and infinite sea, to feel the bliss of life.
Luckily Barcelona is full of mountains, and some of them are near my house.
Yesterday and decided to try on a new thing in my closet-a jumpsuit. I have to say, jumpsuits are really comfy and an usable creation for i-don't-know-what-to-wear situations. You can wear it to any occasions and don't think how to combine this shirt with this trousers, cos there always an "ready-to-go'' garment in your closet.
But the jumpsuit can be a tricky trend to try if you are less than average height. Full length, wide–legged ones look best on long legs. However there are so many versions and leg lengths this season, don’t be afraid to experiment. The rule is high heels that will lengthen the leg. If you don't have skyscraper legs(like me) then save this season's gorgeous flats for short-style jumpsuits. A V-neck or plunge-neckline will also give the impression of elongating the body.
Sometimes I do accomplish my promises and a new post didn't make you wait so long.
Today I spent my time in the city center-strolling on streets, doing some shopping and just enjoying the view from Las Arenas de Barcelona.
And about the look. You know, sometimes it seems not so easy to combine all the pieces of the look together, especially when there´s a fringe. The main purpose is not to be afraid of trying something new.
I have to say the Native Americans played a big role in the fashion world in regards to the fringe style. Thanks to them, we can seize the chance to have an updated inspired look. So, fringe fashion seems to be making a big come back in most of seasons. As far as I can see the Spring/Summer 2012 offering is an outstanding place for this trend to pick up. Take for example the same Zara, where you can find an enormous number of options for fringe shirts, skirts, short, dresses and even collars.
Fringe fashion is fabulous, so go for it! As I did!
As I promised, here's an intagram post of my new life in Barcelona. Don't know what could be better, than relaxing all day, doing sports, sunbathing near the Mediterranean sea, eating various sea fish and enjoying the Summer! Though it's still really hard to get used to a new city, new people and their lifestyle. I'm practicing my Spanish skills every day, so maybe soon I will write posts in Spanish.
I hope new posts will not make you wait so long, so keep reading.
Do you know the feeling, when you, beautifully looking, are walking down the street or in the park on a pleasant sunny day, wearing a short skirt or mini-dress and then.....suddenly from nowhere a strong wind blows and shows what's under your skirt to everyone around? Well, I know that you,girls, at least feel uncomfortable wearing little skirts on a windy day.
And here is a decision - shorts and skirt synthesis. I have discovered these shorts, and got two pairs of them-the blue ones for everyday and black ones for the evening. So I recommend this season trend for all the girl, who are fancy of skirts and mini dresses and are afraid to be blown away.
Is it really happening? It's the first day of Summer!!! And I am so happy and at the same time sad to realize that a month left till my moving to Barcelona! So I guess that next posts will be written on Spanish as well as on English, cos I really need to practice my Español skills.
Yesterday I was wearing trousers with tropical print that I was craving and searching for months(See the look by Doina from The Golden Diamonds with these pants)! And wore them with beautiful stilettos from Mango.
In Riga it's impossible to catch the weather. It's fog in the morning and sun in the afternoon. Today it's +15, but tomorrow it will rain. So unfair! I have so many things to show, so I hope that this week the sun will be on my side.
Thing is that finally Spring came to Riga!!! Every day gets warmer and warmer and it's time to through away our cold and heavy coats, uggs and everything else that reminds about that awfully long winter! Yesterday I was strolling in the Old Riga and feeling the joy of Spring coming. A was wearing a beautiful top with this season's trend - a peplum, mixing this elegant detail with rough biker boots. So dare!
Behind the window everything is flourishing and the sun is shining. Finally the weather becomes adequate, but unfortunately I'm sick and missing the great first Spring days at home. That's why I thought it's time to review our knowledge about this season best trends from fashion week.
Finally it started to snow above the Riga! Whole December I was waiting theappearanceof snow,and on the firstdayof snowing I immediatelywentto the park -wherethe treesare so beautifulwith a thinlayer of snowon the branches.It is a pitythat it willmelt away soon.
First time I am representing you my KateFeel's fluffy black skirt, that I made in October. When I'm wearing it I feel so enlivened and positive! I think it's really noticeable, because of my smile in the photos.
It's 10th of January and I am completely in 2012, ready for big surprises, experiences and changes.
First changes are in my blog's design.(Thank you my dear friend and photographer Anastasia Shirokova). Second - is the first new post in 2012 - it will be about new goodies in my closet and cosmetics. I noticed that almost each fashion blogger does a review of new bought things almost every month or season. So I made a try, cos I got and bought lots of presents at Christmas and New Year.
Other, more 'global', experiences I will have during all this year. Hope, you my friends, will be right beside me.
