ASOS haul

Asos creepers, ordered yesterday
 About a week or so ago and yesterday I purchased a couple of things over on Asos. I have been spending a little too much money lately but sometimes you need to go all out in order to really enjoy the shopping moment. Anyways, I wanted to share what I bought (although the items have not arrived yet). Above is a pair of Asos creepers. Those who know me, know I love me some creepers and I only have a few pairs (a tartan pair, a black suede pair and a black leather pair), so when I saw these were on sale, I thought "add to bag". It was the only rational thought that could have been, trust.
Asos quilted mini skirt with heart pockets, ordered last week
 Something I'm really into at the moment is quilted materials. So when I saw this quilted mini skirt with heart pockets (=awesome), it quickly found its way into my shopping bag. I do wonder how it will look in real life, but I think it will get its fair share of wear during the colder months. Plus I could wear it on Valentine's Day... Will keep you posted.
Tortoise belt, Asos, ordered last week
 How cute are those turtles, right?? and for only £4.50? I'd call that a bargain.
Asos wedge trainers, ordered last week
 I had been ogling these wedges for ages. I was a bit torn between needing another pair of wedge trainers and well, not needing them. In the end I decided I obviously did need them after all and happily added them to the list.
Ssusan Caplan for Asos vintage snake ring, ordered yesterday
Last but not least is this two-headed snake ring. I sure hope it fits (the size wasn't mentioned), but the thing is, I used to have a two-snakes ring (the anniversary ring of my grandma) but I lost it like five years ago (it simply slipped off my finger, I still morn the loss to this day) and this ring sort of reminded me of it (though my original ring was much much MUCH nicer, it was silver and it was actually two snakes not a two-headed snake but whatever) so I'm going to give it a try. I cannot wait for the items to arrive (the first order should arrive any day now). To be honest, if I could have I would have bought like a million more things but I'm happy with what I have ordered so far and hopefully the items will match my expectations of them. Hope you all have a lovely weekend, till next time, xo, V

Killer Heels

 I wore these shoes to school yesterday and something horrible happened. For the very first time a pair of shoes caused me to fall down, in the middle of the street no less. This has never happened to me before (without the external cause of alcohol) and I've worn some crazy heeled shoes! It'd true that these are quite high (almost 13cm without a platform) and the fact that I was hurrying in order to catch a tram might have also contributed to my fall or the damned cobblestones that are everywhere near my school but still, it was a shock. It'll definitely be a (long) while before I wear these babies again.

Very New York

 Yesterday I was drawn to an all-black outfit with the exception of shoes and bag. My favorite leather jacket, a trifted Zara turtleneck, the amazing Zara tassel miniskirt. I also wore one of my favorite necklaces - it features a piggie and I added a doggie charm to it, to make it just right...
 Sherling detail is another favorite this time of year. It's especially rare on flat ankle boots!
 I couldn't not add this photo from two weeks ago when I bothered to actually do my hair. It looks so neat, right?? But I have to be honest and admit that I burned my little finger a tiny bit with the hot iron - guess I'm just a bit clumsy.
Lastly how I styled my one-size-too-small Eden creeper shoes. I love these shoes to bits if only they were a tad roomier! Ah well, you can't have it all. Till next time, xoxo, V

Everyday Veve

 When it gets cold and grey and blah I tend to wear comfy casual pieces (like these Asos lace-up boots or my fave Topshop bag) with a bit of oomph to add to the mix, namely my Topshop fake leopard print coat. This coat may not be the most practical (it has 3/4 sleeves so when it gets really really cold, you cannot wear it) but it is just lovely. And sometimes you need lovely pieces to get through the bleakness of the cold.
 Last week I was waiting for the boy over at the Harfa mall and I fell in love with their lego statue collection. Especially this bear, he stole the show! And look how cute his butt is!
 Told you so...
I found this photo on my phone and I had been planning to post it ages ago (=when it was still warm enough to wear sandals). These are one of my favorite pairs of sandals and like most good things were a chance buy. They're from Pull&Bear and they make me miss the summer so bad. Ah well, till next year babes. It's way past time to dig out the winter arsenal..

Farewell to Summer

 It's officially autumn (=winter) here and so I can no longer go out without wearing warm footwear. But before that happened I happily wore these studded slipper flats from Zara that I bought in Rome.
 I wore them on the first day back at uni (two and a half weeks ago) and trust it was a HARD decision to choose which pair of shoes to wear. The 'first day of school' outfit is a crucial fashion statement - it should show who you have become during the summer. And it's also nice to flaunt new things right? Below is the bag I wore - doctor's bags are big this season. Plus I thrifted it for like almost nothing...

I Believe in the Person I Want to Become

 On my balcony, having a smoke.
Casual and care-free.
Cutting classes and shunning responsibilities.
Breaking all the rules.
 wearing: Topshop jacket, H&M sweater and H&M dress, favorite Stradivarius boots that are slowly but surely getting worn to pieces
After watching Lana Del Rey's new video Ride I have decided to take flight and forget about the things that have been holding me back. Fuck not having a place to take photos, fuck what other people think, fuck it all. I do believe in the person I want to become. And it will happen. I was meant to run free. It's time I found myself again and unleashed the free spirit that is my soul...

Who'll Be President?

I usually keep this blog light (about fashion and such) but today I felt drawn to touch the topic of the presidential campaign in the Czech Republic. I hate politics and didn't think I would be too interested in the presidential voting but Vladimir Franz has my vote for sure. So I would like to use this space to show my support. Vladimir Franz is a very interesting person and I dearly hope that he'll be our new president (you can check out his webpage here: though it's in Czech).
