90′s Florals

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

(Suomeksi kuvien alla)

I’ve re-fallen in love with florals, especially when they are worn with denim for a more grungey 90′s look. I found some really cute floral pieces from New Look Inspire, and thought I’d build some outfits using them.

The key piece for the first outfit is the floral cami, and I thought it would look really cool with snow washed denim shorts and a black bomber jacket. The quilted booties are just amazing, and the paperbag clutch goes perfectly with the white of their soles. I finished the outfit with orange lipstick and nail polish.

The second outfit has two floral pieces from New Look Inspire, the cute shorts and the burnt out t-shirt. I thought the denim parka from Junarose brings more ‘street’ to the cutesy outfit, and the buckled boots add to that. The duffle bag and the pink and nude lips and nails finish the outfit nicely.

How do you feel about 90′s florals?

Olen jälleen löytänyt kukkakuosit, varsinkin jos ne yhdistää denimiin. Ysäri ja grunge-lookin kukkaset on ihan parhaita. Löysin kivoja kukkakuosi-vaatteita New Look Inspire:ltä, ja ajattelin rakentaa pari asua niitä käyttäen.

Aloitin ekan asun kokoamisen tuosta kukka-topista, ja ajattelin, että se näyttäisi tosi kivalta lumipestyjen farkkushortsien ja mustan bomberin kanssa. Nuo tikki-saappaat on aivan upeat, ja niiden valkoiset pohjat sopii loistavasti tuohon ‘paperipussi’-laukkuun. Viimeisenä silauksena asuun valitsin oranssia huulipunaa ja kynsilakkaa.

Toisessa asussa on kaksi kukkakuosista vaatetta New Look Inspire:ltä, söpöt shortsit ja t-paita. Ajattelin, että Junarosen denim-parka olisi loistavaa vähän tuomaan katu-uskottavuutta tuolle söpölle kokonaisuudelle, ja myös saappaat lisäävät tätä tunnelmaa. Nude laukku, pinkit huulet ja nudet kynnet ovat hyvä valinta viimeistelemään asun.

Mites ysäri-kukkaset uppoaa suhun?

Dreaming of a Holiday

Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

(Valitettavasti en kääntänyt tätä postausta suomeksi.)

First of all, let me confess something: I have actually never been on a beach holiday, or a pool-side holiday for that matter. All my previous holidays have been city breaks, and as much as I love them (especially my gorgeous New York), I do want to go for a proper lazy, sunny holiday as well. So I guess it isn’t a surprise that a holiday like that is something that I find myself daydreaming about quite often. I’d want to go somewhere with clear water, stunning scenery and not too many other tourists. I’d love to go with my best girlfriends, just be totally lazy, enjoy the sun and swimming, and of course sip some cocktails. And in the evenings we’d obviously have some more cocktails in some gorgeous bar. All that definitely sounds perfect, if only I could afford something like it! What I can afford though is dreaming about it, and I did a little wishlist what I’d like to pack with me if I was going.

These two Monif C bikini sets would be the key pieces of my dream wardrobe for a sunny holiday. First I’d wear the black one, and after getting a bit tanned I’d wear the neon orange one. Monif C does the most amazing swimwear for plus-size ladies, and I’d be so happy to rock these on the beach!

The rest of my dream wardrobe would consist of a few dresses (paisley and tropical from Junarose, black from New Look), flip flops from Roxy, two pairs of sandals (orange from ASOS, nude from Love Sasha), a few pairs of sunglasses (nude from ASOS and black from Love Sasha), some cool jewellery (long layered necklace, a palm tree necklace and bright statement necklace, all from New Look), and a floral straw hat from Love Sasha. All of them would be packed in this gorgeous Antler luggage. Obviously I would still need sunscreen and some bright lipsticks, but I have plenty of those already… at least I can live that part of this dream! ;)

Wishlist: Simply Be

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

(Jätin käännöksen tekemättä, sillä valiettavasti Simply Be:n EU-sivustolla ei ainakaan vielä ole näitä tuotteita.)

I’ve had a lot of time in my hands this Easter, so of course I have been surfing at online shops. I don’t know why I do it, as it is total torture for someone as broke as me. I do like to keep track to what’s new in plus-size fashion, so I guess that is the reason why I continue to torture myself, haha.

Simply Be have done it again with their latest street style-drop. So many amazing pieces that are 100% on trend! (And I actually had to use my account to get a few of them, I couldn’t stop myself..)

Here are my favourites, very monochrome, eh ;). Guess which ones I got? Which ones are your faves?

Spring wishlist: Yours Clothing

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

(Suomeksi kuvien alla)

My spring wishlists continue tonight with Yours Clothing. Basic items with florals and monochrome, and underwear, seemed to be my winners from them, haha. Good underwear is always a winner in my book, and that black skater skirt has a nice different twist with the pleats. What do you think?

Have you ever ordered from Yours Clothing? They are an UK based plus-size retailer, and they ship internationally. The list of countries and delivery prices can be seen here (and no bigger delivery costs than £10). So yes, you should definitely check them out if you haven’t already – and I have a great discount code to all new customers, UK or international. Use code ‘BLOGGER12‘ to get £10 off purchases of £20 or over. (Unfortunately doesn’t work with sale-items.)

Row 3: Black Godet Skater SkirtGrey And Pink Floral Print Jumper With Dipped HemSloggi Black Basic Long Length BriefsBlack Sleeveless Jersey Maxi Dress

Kevään toivelistat jatkuu tänään Yours Clothing:illa. Listalleni päätyi sieltä kukkakuoseja, mustaa, valkoista ja alusvaatteita. Aika peruskamaa tällä kertaa, mutta hyvät alusvaatteet on aina voitolla, ja tuo musta skater-hame on jännä noiden erikoisten laskosten kanssa. Mitäs olette mieltä?

Olettekos koskaan tilanneet Yours Clothing:ilta? Kauppa on brittiläinen, mutta he lähettävät tilaukset myös ulkomaille, ja postikulut Suomeen ovat 7 puntaa. Tämä ei mielestäni ole todellakaan paljoa, varsinkin kun tähän hintaan saa tilata 12 tuotetta yhdessä paketissa. Jos ette ole tilanneet heiltä aiemmin, niin nyt olisi hyvä tilaisuus :). Mulla on tarjota teille alennuskoodi, joka toimii kaikille uusille asiakkaille. Ilmoittakaa kassalla koodi ‘BLOGGER12‘, niin saatte 10 puntaa pois tilauksesta joka on 20 puntaa tai yli. (Valitettavasti ei toimi ale-tuotteissa.)
