Vajadzēja posties | Had to dress up

Kā tradīcija skolā ir saņemt žetonu jeb gredzenu, manuprāt, tas vairāk ir iegansts sapucēties un pierast pie kurpēm, jo mēs nemaz vēl nebeidzam mācīties un eksāmeni vēl tikai priekšā. Lai arī cik ļoti man nepatīk šādi pasākumi patīkami uzvilkt kleitu, augstpapēžu kurpes un padejot ar draudzenēm, kā arī nedaudz paskumt par šīm beigām. Kleita ir mammas darināta un īstenībā ir divas kleitas, mežģīnu kleitu varu nēsāt vēl un vēl ar citām vienkrāsainām kleitām. Paldies mammu!

So as tradition in our school, we as seniors get rings with school emblem and our graduation year craved in it, as a sign for finishing the school and being in community of graduates. It's kind of a big deal over nothing really, but it a reason to dress up and take out our formal wear. I really dislike these kind of events, but it was nice to put on a dress and heels, and dance around with my friends along with being a little sad about all this ending. Mom made me this beautiful dress which is actually two dresses and the lace one can be worn again and again with multiple other solid color dresses. Thanks mom!

Negaidīti | Unexpectedly

Džemperis + kleita ir pēdējā laika labākais komplekts, ir pietiekami silti,ērti un izskatās labi. 
Iesaku. Bet tas tā...
Stāsts šoreiz par jauniem zābakiem. Šie nejauši uzietie ādas zābāki bija neplānots pirkums,  taču ilgi meklēts gardrobes papildiājums. Tos atradām ziemas atlaidēs Reserved, kur ādas apavus līdzšim nebiju redzējusi. Tie var būt lieliski kopā ar biksēm, ar svārkiem un arī ar kleitām, tas bija tas, kas vajadzīgs. Laikam tiešām, labākās lietas nāk negaidīti.

Sweater + dress is best combo recently, it's warm enough, comfortable and looks good. I recommend. But that's that...
This time the story is about the new boots. These boots we found accidentally and this purchase wasn't planned, but the boots are long-awaited wardrobe addition. We found them during the winter sales in store called Reserved, where hadn't seen leather footwear before. They can go great with pants, skirts and also dresses, and that was what I needed. Maybe really, all good things come unexpectedly.

Iedvesmas nedēļas nogale #13 | Inspiration weekend #13

Ar Parīzi saistīto grāmatu skaits pieaug. Šoreiz par vārdadienas dāvanu atrastu Tartu lielveikalā Tasku, lieliskā grāmatu veikalā ar vēl lieliskāku mākslas,modes grāmatu izlasi. 
How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style and Bad Habits ir grāmata, kurā aprakstīts, ko dara,ko domā,ko velk un kā izturas parīziete. Humoristiskas, bet patiesas, pamācības, kas parāda tipisku parīzieti. Iekļautas arī autoru mīļākās vietas, receptes,filmas un leksikas skaidrojumi. 
Un izrādās, es daru lietas pareizi, un turpmāk zināšu, ko darīt un nedarīt franču ballītēs. 
_____
The number of Paris related books is growing. This time about by name's day present, found at Tartu shopping mall, in great book shop with even greater selection of art and fashion books. 
How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style and Bad Habits is a book about what Parisian do, think, wear and how she act. Funny, but genuine manuals, which shows typical Parisian. Including author's favorite places in Paris, films and vocabulary.
And turns out, I am doing things right, and from now on I will know what are the do's and don'ts at French parties.

Sniegputenis | Snowfall

Izlēmām izbrauc un pabildēties sasnigušās ainavās. Neatradām, ko meklējām, bet atradām ko citu. Redzamos svārkus un jaku var iegādāties, par to vairāk runāju šajā ierakstā.
_____
We decided to head out and take some pictures in snowy landscapes. We didn't find what were looking for, but we found something else. The wool jacket and skirt can be purchased in my mom's Easy store, I talk about it more in this blog post.

Pirmā | First

Šoreiz daudz nerakstīšu. Tiku pie intervijas vietējā avīzē un parunāju par sevi un modi. Lūk, ja nokavējāt 20.janvārī, dodu iespēju izlasīt interviju šeit. Spied uz bildēm uz lasi! 
Paldies Laurai Pinnei, par manis izvēlēšanu rakstam.
_____
This time I won't talk much. I got interviewed by local newspaper and talked about fashion and myself. It's too long to translate in English, but basically I am saying that my mother inspires me very much, that I shop at second-hand stores and love it. Saying that for looking good you need to feel good and also predicting that this year fashion industry might speak up, in terms of feminism,racism and mental health issues, as it got popular last year.
