Lookbook Summer 2017

Hello everyone,

I feel like I haven’t done a lookbook post in such a long time. Probably because I haven’t. So, let’s just get into it.

Look no. I

I wear a burgundy off-shoulder blouse from New Look, a black faux leather skirt from Tally Weijl and chain necklaces from Primark.

Look no. II

Here I wear a white blouse with lace embellishments from Tally Weijl, a floral skirt, and bracelets from H&M.

Look no. III

This one is probably my favourite, and well, to be honest, the most impractical one as well. But who cares? The burgundy dress T-shirt is from Bershka and the thigh high boots are from New Look. The necklace is from Primark.

Look no. IV

The most casual of the outfits consists of a grey short sleeve T-shirt from River Island and a vintage style skirt from Forever 21. The chokers are from Primark.

P.S. Todays is the magical day when I launched my YouTube channel which means that you can watch this lookbook on a video here and see the details which the camera couldn’t depict in the photos because even though I took the pictures on my iPhone 6 plus it still looks like it was photographed with a potato, lol.

I hope you enjoyed the post and perhaps even the video and see you soon.

Summer 2017 Trends I Like and Don’t Like

Hello everyone,

There are a lot of trends out there going on right now. I don’t religiously follow all of them because quite frankly, I don’t like all of them. I’m aware of trends. I acknowledge them and some of them I just pass by without noticing. For instance, I’m more of a natural colour fan so I’m not really into that bright colour trend. Likewise, the floral pattern/embroidery. It’s super romantic, yes, but it’s just not my kind of style. So let’s look at some more specific trends, shall we?

 

LIKES

Sheer materials

Okay, this is not exactly more specific. I guess that after my couple of previous posts you realised this would probably end up on this list. I just love anything see-through at the moment. It makes you feel naked and dressed at the same time, which doesn’t sound so appealing but for some strange reason, it is.

 

Chokers

I’m aware this is not a huge trend anymore, but I’m still into it. If you don’t wear them with every single day, they can be a unique accessory that can spice the outfit up. Even a classic choker without any embellishments can upgrade the most boring outfit.

 

DISLIKES

And now let’s talk about the trends I’m not so keen on.

Fishnet tights

I like them on pictures, okay? That’s it. I don’t think I would be able to wear them outside. I’ll save them for my annual prostitute mask for Halloween.

 

Denim jackets

This one is also not so hot anymore but even back them I just couldn’t fall for it. It’s not exactly my style and I know if I bought a denim jacket, I would wear it once or maybe twice, and then it would be hanging in my wardrobe until I’d decide to dispose of it.

And I guess that’s it for today’s post.

xoxo, S. Viktorie.

 

Mesh Obsession

Hello everyone,

Mesh and any kind of sheer material, in general, is huge this season. So let’s have a look at some the best pieces I managed to find for you.

 

Bodysuit

FullSizeRender2

Let’s start with something basic such as this bodysuit from BooHoo.com which is available in different colours than black as well.

But, if you don’t feel brave enough to wear this completely sheer bodysuit, I would have a look at this one from H&M.

Corset Bralet Top

Mesh corsetI fell in love with this piece from River Island. I mean, it’s probably not something I would wear on a daily basis but damn it!

 

Leggings

Mesh leggingsFor the sporty girls out there, I’ve got you covered with this leggings from H&M. These are perfect for those days when you’re not sure if you want to wear shorts or actual leggings.

 

Floral dress

dressThis romantic floral dress from River Island is just stunning! It doesn’t need any more words of praise.

 

Embroidered Top

topAnd let’s remain in River Island and with the floral pattern. It’s great if you want to look elegant and sexy at the same time.

Or if you fancy something more revealing, I would have a look at this beauty from Forever 21.

And now excuse me, I have some shopping to be done!

June 2017 Fashion Haul

Hello everyone,

June was quite a hectic month for me. Transferring to a different uni, moving to London, looking for a new job. But in the meantime I managed to do a little shopping to treat myself.

 

Mesh Bomber

MeshBomber

When I saw this partly mesh bomber on Boohoo.com I just had to own it. I wanted something unique, something different and this was exactly what I was looking for. It’s perfect for summer when there’s not cold anymore but not as hot to not wear anything on top. Who cares it’s supposed to be a sports jacket?

 

Mesh T-shirt

MeshTEven though my style is usually kind of classy with nothing much extra, sometimes I like to dress more like a whore and so I ordered this T-shirt from Boohoo.com as well. I’m not trying to say that you look like a whore wearing this. Not at all. It’s just something I don’t feel like wearing every day. And that’s why I bought it because I need more unique/occasional stuff to wear.

 

Trench coat

SummerTrenchOkay. I already have one trench coat from Zara which I’m obssessed with. But that one is more for cold weather. This one from Primark is lighter and more eligible for slightly warmer weather. Therefore it’s perfect for summer in the UK. Now that if you meet me and ask me why I’m wearing the same trench coat all year round I will be like: “Ah no, it’s actually two different coats!”.

Storytime: I was recently in Victoria & Albert Museum in London with my friend Libby and they had there a pair of Christian Louboutin heels from 2014 on display. So, first of all, I find that item to be too recent to be an exhibit of a museum and while I was imagining a lady walking by in the same pair of pumps and feeling like she needs to buy new ones, it occured to me that maybe when I become a successful writer and later die, someone will take my iconic trench coat and put it in the museum as well. 😀

 

Feathery heels

FeatherHeelsCan we just appreciate for a while how exquisite these shoes are? Like seriously. I’ve been dreaming of these for some time now but never really found an affordable version and if I did my mum’s voice in my head was constantly telling me I don’t need them. Of course I don’t NEED them but if I shopped for clothes only because I needed it, I wouldn’t have basically anything. So when I saw these in Primark I just knew I needed them.

 

Studded heels

StuddedHeelsYou know, I have a lot of high heel shoes. Like loads of them. But none of them is like this cheap dupe from Primark of the Valentino original. So why not?

 

Headphones

HeadphonesI was simply astounded by the beauty of these headphones from Topshop. I just can’t get enough of the rose quartz-ish decor on them.

So there you have it. Expect a lookbook including these new items soon.

5 Best Highstreet Fashion Shops

Hello everyone,

Today I will be sharing with you my favourite highstreet fashion shops. Just to clarify, I don’t shop only in these stores. These are my go-to where I usually shop, where I always find what I need. So if you want to look good on a budget and find some dupes of designer clothes definitely check out these.

 

River Island

This one is my absolute favourite. Every time I want to buy something more extra than I normaly wear I go to River Island. They know how to satisfy my glittery dress obsession. Everything there is super affordable and oh my god! These shoes there! Divine!

 

H&M

I shop mostly for basics in H&M and since half of my wardrobe consists of basics I spent loads of time and money in H&M. Every time I need a new classic white T-shirt I know exactly where to go.

 

Forever 21

Forever 21 has everything I need. From basics to some extra stuff. Once againg, everything there is super affordable and pretty.

 

Boohoo

To be honest, I don’t shop online that often. Simply because I like to know exactly how the item looks like and of course I want to try it on before I purchase it. But I was pleasantly surprised with the stuff I received from boohoo.com on the first time so I’ve been using this website since.

 

Primark

Okay, me and Primark we had kind of a yes-no relationship at first. When I saw how crowded it usually was I was quite intimidated to shop there. But now it’s clear to me why. All of the items they sell are super cheap so you get a lot of things without spending an outrageous amount of money. I made a small haul this month in Primark so stay tuned!

Travel essentials

Hello everyone,

So summer is finally here again! The season which we all have been patiently waiting for the whole year.  The season when we all are looking forward to travelling to some distant places, and I have a couple of things you should add to your packing checklist.

I am personally not travelling to anywhere this summer because I am moving to London. However, I have to pack my suitcase lightly because the first month I will spend attending a language school, and then I will eventually move to a flatshare, and of course, I do not want to scare the flatmates with the enormous amount of my stuff.

I will not talk about clothes a lot because it depends on the type of trip, and I suppose you would not forget to pack a swimsuit to a seaside vacay. So let’s get started!

FullSizeRender (2)

Large tote bag

To keep all your belongings there. In case that you are travelling to the seaside, it might be a beach bag perhaps, too. But you should definitely also pack some clutch for dining out or evening walks on the beach or parties in the city.

Comfy flats

Yep, most of us are not made to travel in high heels. Anyway, it does not mean you should not have them packed with you. Sandals to the seaside, classic pumps would be perfect for the city.

Large hat

Will keep you stylish while travelling and save your head from the sun at the beach.

Sunglasses

These will cover your sleepiness on the day of travelling and will protect your eyes from the sun the whole during the vacay.

Warmer clothes

I do not know how about you but I am always so cold while the flight, so definitely wear some cardigan and usual trousers. The weather can suddenly change during your trip as well, you never know.

Entertainment

Phone, tablet, laptop, kindle, whatever you want. For me, it is a good book, iPod and headphones.
