READING UPDATE & BOOK REVIEW : ROBERT A.HEINLEIN (SPACE CADET, WALDO AND MAGIC INC, PODKANYE OF MARS)

Any season is a good season for reading (especially if you're a bookworm), but there is something particularly sweet about summer reading. Maybe it is just that we associate summer with reading, but I always catch myself immensely enjoying the privilege of being a bookworm in summer. Reading in the open air and swallowing one book after another- what bliss! I've been doing just that and that means it's time for another reading update. I've been visiting my local library on a weekly basis, checking in a few books every time- sometimes even braving the heat to do (as showed on the photographs bellow that were taken while the sun was quite strong, hence the hat and the white styling). Anyhow, I fi it's time to share some of my reading experiences with you. Today I'll review two novels (Space Cadet & Podkanye of Mars) and two novellas (Waldo & Magic, inc) written by Robert A.Heinlein. All of these works were written some time ago, but they have aged well. I…

SEVEN WAYS TO WEAR A WHITE DOTTED PENCIL SKIRT : SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES

A surprising number of people are under the false impression that you have to spend a lot of money in order to dress in a sustainable way. The good news is that sustainable fashion does't have to be expensive or difficult.  You can help the environment just by shopping your closet more. As easy as that! Shopping your closet and taking good care of your clothing are wonderful and easy ways to be more sustainable. Do you know what is the best thing about these two ecologically friendly fashion strategies? They don't cost you anything. By maximizing the usage of items in your closet and learning how to properly care for your clothing items, you can both help the environment and your personal finances. I already addressed this topic in my last post, when I showed you fourteen ways to wear one basic item. Relying on our wardrobe essentials is such an effortless way to be more green in our fashion choices. 
Take this white pencil skirt for example. It belonged to my mother when she…

14 WAYS TO STYLE ONE BLUE DENIM SKIRT: SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES

Sustainable fashion is such a hot topic right now, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a fashion revolution. More and more people are trying to minimize their carbon print by re-wearing their clothes and shopping their closets. One good way to build a functioning wardrobe you'll love to shop is to make sure you have a couple of essential items in it. These basic pieces can help you shop your closet more easily and become more sustainable in your fashion choices. A denim skirt is one such classical and essential item.  Today I'll show you ten ways to style a denim skirt. I had this particular denim skirt for a couple of years, it's by Croatian denim brand Amadeus (not sponsored) that I can recommend for its quality denim. For me this skirt is one of those items that are season-less and by that I mean those clothing items that can be worn in any season. If you're creative enough, you can figure out a way to wear most of your clothes in any season, but some ite…

INSPIRED BY D&G AUTUMN/ WINTER COLLECTION 2019/2020 (PART 2)

This is my second and final post dedicated to Dolce & Gabbana Autumn Winter 2019/2020 Collection. The reason why I needed two posts was because this particular show featured hundreds of runaway looks and a number of trends. As I explained in my last post, I decided to split my trend analysis & commentary in two posts. In my first post, I have analysed ten trends showed in the collection. Today I will analyse the eight remaining trends. I know this seems like a lot of trends, but what can I say? It was a collection rich in trends. In addition, I'll write about how these trends inspired me to start shopping my closet for autumn and winter. Disclaimer- For creating collages, I used photographs from the official D&G site. All the fashion illustration included in this post are my own.
