Do you need some sweeties?

Today it’s such a beautiful time outside. This morning I’ve decided to wear a summer dress with colorful flowers. I love this dress. To wear colorful clothes this season is the most indicated thing.

When I’ve chosen the title of the today’s article, my thought wasn’t about sweeties like cakes, chocolate or candies. I was thinking about the girls, who like to wear colorful clothes and accessories, silk dresses and other fine fabrics. The shoes and the bags must be in accordance with the outfit that you chose.

Do you like to be a Candy Girl? Who is Candy Girl? She’s a girl who likes to wear in the summer's brightly colored accessories. I love their style, those powerful colors that they use in their outfits.

Big bold and beautiful –enjoy the pictures.

I’ve chosen also a song in accordance with the subject off today.

What are vintage clothes and why do we still love them?

Vintage clothing is a generic term for new or second hand garments originating from a previous era.

I don’t know about you, but I love vintage clothes. You can’t find a lot off outfits vintage that are so fashionable in our days.

Although there has always been some demand for old and/or second hand clothing, the awareness, demand and acceptance of this has increased dramatically since the early 1990s.

This increase in interest is due in part to increased visibility, as vintage clothing was increasingly worn by celebrities, e.g. Julia Roberts, Chloe Sevigny, Kate Moss, and Dita von Teese.

There has also been an increasing interest in environmental sustainability in terms of reusing, recycling and repairing rather than throwing things away. A resurgence of historically based sub-cultural groups like rockabilly and swing dancing has also played a part in the increase in interest in vintage clothes.

Other reasons that some people are attracted to vintage clothing include:

  • Unique or almost unique: most items were custom made, and others were manufactured in small quantities only.
  • Good quality: they were designed to be worn for years and passed on to other family members, so they were made of robust materials, well cut and well made, with generous seam allowances and hems which allow for alterations and custom fit.
  • Fine materials: many of the unusual older fabric types are no longer manufactured, or are now prohibitively expensive.
  • Value for money: garments generally sell for a cost far below similar new modern garments.
  • History: an appreciation of the past, the roles of previous generations and the skills of respected designers.
  • Detailing: hand finishing, unusual buttons, hand embroidery, handmade lace, crochet, appliqué, beading and other techniques.
  • Style: vintage clothing has traditionally been the favorite of creative personalities because it offers an enormously wide range of imaginative styles.
  • Investment: some people buy to collect rather than to wear, and increasingly, good quality vintage garments especially items by well-known designers are sought after by collectors.
  • Low Carbon Footprint: some people buy vintage clothes because it is perceived as less demanding of world resources.
  • Union made: many vintage clothes carry a union label, thus avoiding labor practices in third world countries that are regarded as abusive.

For today I’ve chosen to show you: Daisy Lowe modeling the latest range of vintage inspired dresses and accessories for Pearl Lowe's collection for Peacocks.

Enjoy the pictures!

What I need in this moments?

I was thinking this days at what I need…and the solution is that I need a long vacation. I would like to go far away from here, but there are three months until I will go on vacation.

I haven’t chosen yet a destination, but these days I feel that I want to go to an exotic island.

What I need in this moments?

I need to win at the lottery, even I never buy a lottery ticket;

I need to relax;

I need to go shopping with my friends;

I need a girl’s night out;

I need to stay at the sun, because these days the weather hasn’t been in the right mood;

I need to go on a vacation with my future husband. The destination should be Bora Bora.

Looking back at what I’ve wrote it seems that I should wake up and go to work.

Have a sunny day!

Lunch Break for a sophisticated lady

Every time when you think at a woman who works in an office, you image all that serious clothes. But in our day that image has suffered some changes.

You can use a lot off colors and the fabrics had now another textures. You can dress office, but also you can be a very sophisticated lady. The accessories can also help you very much to remove your look from the anonymity.

Who says it has to be all work and no play? Hit the pavement with urban clothes that are sophisticated, edgy and even a bit whimsical.
