Lust list...

These are the pieces that are silently awaiting for me to be purchased. I'm definitely getting all of them, of course if I'll find everything in stores. Sooo obsessed! Cannot wait to posses these spring oozing items! Now the orange craze is quite weird here. I actually hate orange! Always have. There's not a single clothing item or a jewelry piece in my wardrobe that's orange. However, this season orange is gonna be the "it" color along with mint, yellow, pale pink just to name a few. Sooo, now that I will see it everywhere, in fact I already do...I am starting to like it. This happens all the time. You get used to things that are exposed to you. So I thought to myself, why to hate a color. What if I see a stunning piece and won't be able to get it only because it's orange. Anyways, too much ramble, all I'm trying to say is that I am slowly falling in love with the color and will be sure to incorporate these tangerine colored items into my non-orange wardrobe. 

First of, this is a gorgeous jacket from Vero Moda, which looks like sh** in the picture. Believe me, it's stunning and sparkly!
Fantastic snake print+orange stripe scarf from Zara
 Look at the color! That's the only reason I want this jumper! Such a beautiful summery coral. It's by Zara Trf.
I guess there's no words needed to describe these shoes and express my love for them. Pure perfection! Zara.
All the jewelry is from Mango. They always have stunning pieces. Want it all!

Armani aviator

Another impulse buy. It happens to me. A lot. But let's face it, who would resist an Armani jacket that's on sale? I needed something warm but short for the winter. I've got a fur coat, it's great for keeping your bum warm but not too practical. I was hoping to find short vintage fox fur coat in Paris but having checked just one store I kind of forgot about it. 
Aviator jackets were always some of my favorite winter gear, I just love the look of them so much! You can look both classy and casual in them. Muuba jackets stole my heart but their prices are too hight for my wallet so I was browsing designer store (probably the only one in town), since they were having sale. I immediately headed towards jacket and coat rack. And guess what! There are these two Armani aviator beauties hanging. One was for someone as big as an elephant and this one was my size! I fell in love with the jacket the minute I put it on! It looks so cool and feels so cozy and snuggly! Perfect for wearing with black uggs(you don't need to tell me they're ugly, it's all about warmth) or some leather heeled boots. I cannot believe I spotted it, plus Armani has always been one of the classiest brands in my book. 
Now the best aspect of the excitement was that it was 50% off! I'm not gonna tell you the price of it but let's just say that it was only a tiny bit more expensive than Zara winter jackets. Considering it's designer brand, I think it's a pretty good bargain! Should last me for many more winters to come. Fur is not real, which is ok since it's very natural looking and super soft. Very good quality faux, in general I'm not a huge fan of faux fur but this is perfect!

I'm going mental over it, am I not?

J'adore Dior...Bill Gaytten's take


So I've watched Dior's latest collection and I thought I'll share a few pieces that really stood out to me. To be honest, the collection did not impress me at all. I mean, yeah the sheer materials of the dresses were pretty but it didn't left me speechless as you would be after seeing the collection by Galliano.

Although, you cannot blame Gaytten for being way more subtle. He perfectly depicts the style of Dior, he said it's not like he's letting away his creativity and going all crazy with designs. He rather helps to keep the iconic style of Dior, directed towards public. There definitely is something missing, Dior is not the same anymore but I have to say that I like it. It's way more subtle but collections still ooze with luxury and a good taste. As I've mentioned, I'm not too fond of the latest collection but the previous one was rather brilliant, I wouldn't mind owning at least the half of it. Bill Gaytten spent 15 years working with Galliano so he's definitely picked the whole feel and idea behind the brand. I hope Dior will remain one of the most glamorous and luxurious brands and Gaytten won't leave Dior admirers disappointed. I am definitely one of them and so far I'm very pleased to see what the new creative director came up with.

On a side note though, models looked too scary for words. I mean the makeup, the hair and attitude were beautiful but God, look at their bodies! I know it's not something new for Dior, they're known for using super skinny models that have issues with anorexia. Give those girls some food, I'm scared looking at their tiny frames! That's definitely something to be considered, Dior needs healthier looking models!
These are the dresses I loved the most. There is something very Tom Ford-ish about them, especially the second one! I love it the most!
 Previous collections that left me speechless! What a magnificent piece of work!
