The one I really needed.

What are the things that take most of your closet space? My closet is (really) full of jackets - leather, pastel blazers, bombers, whatever (ok, to be honest there were so many I had to buy an extra rack and I'm not proud of that). But what can I do if I'm in the store and I see one like this? It's oversized, has beautiful shape and color different from everything I've worn before. Yeah, no, I had to have it. It looks great with black, but I'll think of an unexpected color combination too. Stay tuned :)

Beachy beach.

Hey guys,

today the main attraction is The Skirt of course :) I've been dreaming of it for quite some time and it's even better than I imagined - I can't really decide if I feel more like a princess or like  Napoleon when wearing it ;) Beautiful shape, unexpected fabric and rare color make it a real statement piece. The author of this beauty is young Polish designer Pajonk -  take a look at his work if you haven't heard of him yet, trust me, he is going to be big :)

Have a good rest of the week!

Green pantern.

Hey guys!

As you know I'm crazy about leopard print, so I'm really stoked about having this green cutie (or rather badass, this one has rather badass-y vibe:)) in my closet. The temperature outside finally reaches my expectations, so I can welcome shorts and hopefully sandals very soon :) Happy Holidays y'all!
