Signs of spring

The title of today’s post may refer to sunny and warmer days and days where you actually can feel the softly, sweet scent of blooming spring flowers spread in the air. However, do not let the title fool you. The spring arrives vary much later here in the North. The times when you can enjoy the warm rays of the sun are unfortunately few and you can still find some white traces on the ground of the past winter. Hopefully, the sun will make its appearance soon and the warm rays will convince those stubborn snowflakes to fly back to the sky. Well, okay the purpose is not to make a weather forecast on the blog. But the things that I wrote about in the sentences above are the reason to why I decided to bring the spring by my own at my wardrobe at least.

I chose two pairs of shoes, both in different styles. The first one tends to appear in a country retro style. A pair of skinny jeans combined with a bold pattern tunic or just with a simple blouse in a bright color would make the perfect match. The second pair is more of a classic flat shoe. What I love about flat shoes is that I can walk in comfort and style as well as they can match almost every piece of my closet.

Pour la Victoire high heels

For just a few days ago, I looked to buy a new pair of high heels. I can tell that I am very picky shopper when it comes to buying shoes especially when I am going to buy high heels. It is very important for me that the shoes fit perfectly my feet because I am going to spend many hours wearing them. All you have to do to know that you made the right choice is to try them on first, of course. However, this time I did not have the opportunity to do that because I bought this pair of shoes online. I actually live in a small city where the variety of shops is quite limited. Therefore, I decided to take the risk and make my order online. I have to admit that shopping online is very practical and I do a lot of my shopping online, although I was a little bit unsure on buying shoes online. I felt instantly in love when I saw them but I could not be completely sure that they would be comfy on my feet until I try them on. Now I can say that I am very happy with the result. They are so elegant and feminine and can be combined with many pieces of my closet. So what about you guys? Are you doubtful about shopping shoes online?

New in

Even though the sale season is almost over (in the city where I live), you can still find bargains up to 70 percent off. Well, I generally think that sales are a great opportunity to enrich your closet with pieces of good quality but in affordable prices. Personally, I prefer to invest on timeless pieces that last for a long time like for instance shoes and bags are some of them. These accessories are the key to elevate an outfit and make it stand out even more no matter if it is a casual outfit or a formal outfit. Usually the most of the stores offers discounts on a very large variety of products but you have to make sure that you visit the stores in the first week of the sales so you get bargains in the right sizes. Personally, I went to the stores several days after the sale season started but luckily, everything that I purchased was in the right size and good quality of course. Hope you enjoy today's post guys!

'' Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening. ''

                                            Coco Chanel

I would like to start my journey on this blog by mentioning this quote above because it really represents my ideology about what fashion is to me. I totally agree with Coco Chanel’s quote. Fashion is not just in the clothes we wear or how we wear them. The term fashion is associated to not only clothes, trends or styles that are popular during a particular time. According to me, fashion is a wave of renewal. Everything that has to do with fashion is about new ideas. Fashion is something more, it is something that makes you unique and makes you shine in an irreplaceable way of creativity. Actually, it is an art that you create on your own. I would liken the word ’’ Fashion ’’ to puzzle pieces and by putting the pieces together, it is leading you to a unique result. Imagine it as the different pieces of clothes and accessories you put together to achieve an impressive combo. According to this quote, fashion can make its appearance in almost every field, in clothes as well as in interior design. In this blog, fashion will make its appearance mainly in way of clothing. I am pleased to welcome you to my blog and hope you enjoy it!
