Caped Wanderer

Look with a cape street style

Here I'm with this cape feeling like a hero trying to safe the world and hoping a strong wind make my cape flow gracefully…lol. 
Last week I was shopping at one of my favorite local vintage stores and while looking for some cute jewelry, Brad ( my boyfriend) approached me wearing this cape…I really laughed so hard, but at the same time I knew exactly what he wanted. He said to me: "honey, you don't have a cape and I'm the hero that is going to buy this one for you." He also said: "the only weird thing are these buttons that look like nipples, maybe you can move them up or completely remove them." Well, to make the story short, here I'm enjoying my new vintage cape and I left the nipples buttons alone. They make a cute jingle bell sound when I move the cape around ;-)
Happy Monday Everyone!

Why Vintage?

Black and white floral dress street

Someone asked me a few days ago why I like vintage clothing. I love wear vintage items because I feel like I'm bringing back to life someone else's story from another era. Vintage pieces are very often unique, therefore they can add a one-of-the-kind look to our outfits. I personally love to combine vintage with contemporary in order to create fun and unique ensembles. For example, in this look I'm sharing with you today, I'm wearing a 70's floral dress (reminded me of YSL spring collection) with a new hat (vintage inspired) and my calf hair modern booties. I wanted to add a warm touch to this black and white floral dress, so I decided to pair it with a whiskey shade jacket (vintage) in order to achieve an interesting contrast. As you can see, I've combined new and vintage, which helps me express my own personal style.
Another reason why I'm drawn to vintage is the price factor. You can find extraordinary vintage pieces for a very reasonable price; something that you will not be able to find with similar new pieces.
Almost half of my wardrobe comes from vintage items, because besides being unique, fun and affordable, they're also green friendly, not contributing to the piles of trash all over this planet.

Levi's 501 CT Jeans With Maxi Trench Coat

Maxi trench coat street style

As I mentioned in another post, I've been updating my denim stack, because I want to wear this fabric more often. One of my favorite style of jeans are the boyfriend, but I wanted an upgrade on my old pairs. Per example I've been wearing my 501 jeans by Levi's for many years now, however, they just came out with the new 501 CT. It's an updated version of the old classic. The leg is more tapered, therefore, easier to pair with any type of shoe, so I immediately felt in love with them all over again.
I didn't have a very light washed jean, so I decided to introduce this color and newer style to my wardrobe. I really like how they look in this outfit with my Burberry green trench and simple pumps.

Playing With My Blues

Outfit with bright colors
It's only mid January and I already miss the warm weather. I don't know about you, but I personally can never get used to winter (I'm originally from an all-year-round warm weather country) and I always tend to get the blues here and there when the weather is cold and the sky is grey. So one of the things I do in order to cheer up around this time of the year besides enjoying a glass of red wine or working out, is wearing fun (to me) combinations like these two looks I'm sharing with you today.
I decided to play around with turquoise/teal type of blue and cobalt blue. I wore two different coats on that day, and I believe both coats added fun to my blues.

Denim on Denim With Combat Boots

Denim on denim street style

One of my New Year resolutions, fashion-wise, is to wear more denim, therefore, I have been updating my denim stack these past two weeks. I'm bringing in to my wardrobe more raw and light wash denim to create fun looks and mix and match as well. 
In today's outfit, I wore double denim to go to brunch and also run errands around town. It was a misty day, so this time instead wearing my rain boots, I found it more appropriate to wear a pair of my new combat boots, which by the way, I've been wearing very often since the beginning of this year.

I am a huge fan of monochromatic patterns and 1960's silhouettes; reason why I'm loving Antonio Marras Resort 2015 collection, so I wanted to share my favorite looks.
