SOPHIA WEBSTER FOR J.CREW

Hey guys! Sorry I didn't post for some days but things were pretty hectic here. I had some french exams and I hope I did well(fingers crossed!). Now that it's done, I haven't realised it yet and I'm super tired, but I felt I needed to make this post. If you've read my blog before, you probably know that I have a huge shoe addiction, and also that I love Sophia Webster. One thing you may not know is that I also really like J.Crew. It is a perfect combination of stylish pieces for every occasion in a reasonable price most of the time! So you can obviously guess how excited I am about this collaboration. Surprisingly, this is one of the designer's most "normal" collections. I mean no wings, no animals, nothing like that for that matter. Even though I am absolutely crazy about these, I know that some people find them "too much". I don't understand, since all of her designs are to die for, but it's good to have some pairs for the ones who want something different but are not ready to take a big step(literally?). I admire Sophia Webster so much and I look up to her. I am just a baby designer right now, but she is such a huge inspiration. After all, her designs reflect my personality in more than one ways. I'm pretty sure that all my friends will hate this post but I hope that you guys like it! Or you could just be inspired to step out of your comfort zone and spice things up! 
Normal is boring ;)
What do you guys think of this collection? Do you like Sophia Webster? Please leave a comment to let me know what you think!

?MORE OR LESS? #3

?More or less? #3
You've probably realised by now how much I love finding more affordable solutions of the same outfit or product. Initially, this started as an attempt to find items myself that would be similar to the ones I saw online and costed too much. But then, I started to put together entire looks in order to help other women in the same place as me. I am determined to make everyone understand that money and style are not connected at all. Money is just a luxury that might give you a head-start, and of course we all love designer clothes! But, if you can't afford them it doesn't mean that you can't have style. To me style is something that's inside you, something you can cultivate but you can't buy!
In this set I made on Polyvore, I created a very relaxed yet chic outfit that you can easily wear for your everyday activities. The difference between the prices is huge(mostly because of the pendant) so I decided to add an inexpensive J.Crew shirt at the affordable set. Technically, it's a designer piece, but if you choose another cheaper shirt the price of the entire look is even lower! The entire second look actually costs less than every single product of the other look(except the shirt)! Kinda shocking isn't it?
Which one of the two outfits do you prefer?

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK FW14

Unfortunately, I am not able to attend Fashion Week 
abroad this month due to other commitments. This of 
course doesn't mean that I can't be "there" with my eyes 
and mind. I have styled four different outfits so far, for 
the first four days of New York fashion week(starting with 
the forth above and counting down). I know it's really
cold there but I can't help it-spring mood is starting to
take over place in my mind! I played with different colors
and textures, trying to embrace the spring notes in my
brain, but also to keep it warm by adding an oversized coat.
This post is probably the biggest one right now since I also
 chose my favorite looks of the shows to show you, 
from style.comEverything was perfect and I love how 
the designers presented the original moody winter colors
but also included some interesting color blocking and 
some more vibrant shades and exciting material(metallics♥).
