I’m going to start this post with a question: do you think it’s ethical to wear vintage leather or fur?
Because I’m in doubts here. From one point of you – vintage leather or fur pieces are completely ethical to wear and to be frank, I’m more on this side. It’s already done, so you’re not adding more value to the current sales. Also, by wearing vintage/second hand garments you are already being eco-friendly. However, some people think that you’re still promoting the use of animal materials and I can’t disagree 100% too. So, help me out! Do you have an opinion about this topic at all? If you do, feel free to share it with me and maybe you’ll help me to decide on which side of the scales am I.
A very deep beginning, I know. Yet don’t worry, the post is not about that. My intention was actually to tell you all about the new online issue of the “Lamu Slenis” magazine with three outfits I styled and a little interview with me. Check this link HERE (page 162 to be exact) and enjoy the read!

Before going any further, let’s take a moment to appreciate my sweet sweet pink candy sweater. I picked it up before my trip to England, thinking “I don’t own anything like that”, which is very true – I do not. Yet now I do and that was one of the best decisions, I simply cannot stop wearing it! It’s from Lindex and it’s now on sale(!!). Keep that in mind, if you’re up for some candy wardrobe update.
However, today I actually want to talk about colours. Yes, you heard me right! It looks like I’ve been converted into a colour person. Well, maybe not completely, maybe not for life, since wearing black I still feel my most comfortable self, but at least this summer season, I’m close to becoming a rainbow! A unicorn! An ice-cream cone! Anything that is not dark. All I had to do, was to get a few bright items that I truly love and want to wear them much more than my all-time favourite black wardrobe hits.

Weather report! Lithuania is amazing at the moment. It’s absolutely crazy how hot and sunny every single day is. Blue sky makes me honestly happy and so does this outfit. I realize this look is like from a few decades ago, yet I kind of like that. Usually I get inspired by movies (old ones especially) and I shop in vintage stores fairly often, so no wonder why sometimes even I have doubts if I am still up-to-date. However, I swear by dress how you feel rule and it works every time. I mean, if you feel great in what you’re wearing, it doesn’t matter what trends are on and what others think about your look. Especially, what others think. That should never ever be on your mind.

You know me, usually at least one item in my outfit is vintage. I like to mix it up and don’t try to tell me that I can’t wear my 0.5 eur skirt with a Hermès bag – I won’t listen. Actually, I believe that it is exactly the key to creating a unique look. Designer pieces are great, high street fashion is fun to play around with, yet very often a vintage item is the one that attracts everyone’s attention and gets complimented the most. Well, at least for me it is.
This time my outfit is all vintage, there’s not much mixing (except the shoes, which I bought as an emergency pair of heels for £3 in Primark). I did that on purpose, to show that it is possible to create a look that overall costs less than grabbing a drink on a Friday night out. You know what the total cost is? Around 6 eur. I get asked a lot, HOW do I do it, so today I decided to give you a little how to. There’s no magic, unfortunately, only basic guidelines I try to follow when I’m hunting for second hand treasures.

Layers of clothing and layers of thoughts. For me it’s quite easy just to sit down and write. It can last for hours and it’s always been like that. However, when it comes to describing my outfits, I get an instant block in my head. Is it just me, or is that completely normal? I mean, I could give you tips, I’m pretty good at giving advices, yet talking about what I’m currently wearing seems a bit vain. A small paragraph – yes, that feels right, but a whole article… That sounds like a waste of time. There are a bunch of pictures for you to see what I am wearing, right?

Hello there! I am back again. I should probably say Happy New Year since I have not written a blog post for hundred years. The year is pretty happy so far. And since it is such a sunny day and I am back in Milan for a bit, I decided to post this unpublished look taken, well, I will not even tell you when. However, everything that you see in these pictures is still in my wardrobe and have become everyday staples.
This post is also a tiny update to prepare you for more to come! I have been planning some quite exciting stuff recently, I hope you will enjoy it. As I am going to!

Same outfit, different photographer. Here is a little throwback to Milan Fashion Week this September, caught by @a_zip.

Well now this is officially the last post of me wearing such a light outfit. My flight to the UK is tomorrow already and friends threatened me to take as many sweaters as I can. We’ll see how bad it is.
While this look will be a lovely memory of sunny days in Milano. You might be hearing a sad note and it is sad a little bit, yet I will be back pretty soon!

Ohh those last warm sunny autumnal Italian days. I don’t think they are the last ones here in Italy, yet I am going away on Tuesday next week and most likely I will not be back in Milan before Christmas, so that’s it for me. Basta. First stop will be the UK, the next one is going to be Lithuania, as all of you know, none of these countries is famous for a sun overload. However, I will finally get to wear coats and winter jackets! And this dress too, without a doubt. I am planning to wear it for the next few months.
A knitted dress is pretty much all I need on colder days. Together with thick tights, it’s comfier than any tracksuit and it always looks effortlessly great. Which is exactly the goal for everyday outfits, right? Frankly, I think it is very possible that I wear dresses in winter more often than in summer. Give it a try, it will make a perfect sense for you too.
