Schoolboy Aesthetics


So this time, I transformed into a schoolboy. This is like my everyday drag! I just take the funky school uniform aesthetics and sprinkle it with a bit of k-pop style. Let me tell you - it tastes pretty awesome at any time, any day.


Leather is clashing with preppy/college elements in equal proportions here. The smart casual-ish top part of the outfit would be way to boring for me if I didn't add something edgier to the mix.


These days, I've been wearing the hell out of those pants. Thanks to it, I noticed that matching leather of various colours together actually looks very interesting and not over-the-top at all.


Let's just throw some more k-pop elements here - the patterned snapback and a single earring. By the way, this is the finest bowtie I own - just how would I NOT fall in love with this little precious treasure?


(Yes, the word "BITCHY" is written on the back of my hat.)

Matryoshka


There's something that's been bugging me for a while. We all know how much of a Russian freak I am - I love Russia's history, culture and language - but somehow... I still haven't done a matryoshka-inspired look! Holy crap, how is this even possible?! Well, fear not, I decided to fix it in today's post.


For me, it's like a magical journey back in time to my first year at the university. I used to wear LOTS of red (including this pretty scarf, which is probably the only folk-related thing in my wardrobe) and gold, expose my legs much more often than now (funny, regarding how I was about 15 kilograms heavier than I am now) and wear those killer Lita-style heels every single day. My hair was also the same length as this wig is (hard to believe now)!


Yeah, about the heels... This must be, like, the first time you see me in actual HIGH (10+ cm) heels. Really poor for 43 outfit posts, eh? I bought this black leather pair in 2011, when the Lita craze was slowly reaching Poland and you had to sign up on a long preorder list of the only online shop that was willing to sell them. I did. I have no regrets.


These babies turned out to be one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes that I have ever owned - truth to be told, more comfortable than many of my flats. I kinda forgot about them as soon as I dropped out of the university because my work always required something more toned down, but nothing else would have complimented this over-the-top Russian doll outfit as good as these!


Also, notice the forgotten wide-brim hat - yet another thing I decided to bring back to my everyday life.

Little Sailor


One of the bloggers who inspire me the most is - sadly, not active anymore - Shan Shan from tinytoadstool. Her unique way of combining various pieces and colours into vintage, mostly cute uniform-like outfits is something I'm trying to project in my own style, too. This time, following that path, I went for an adorable little sailor look. Should we count it as the back to school outfit, or does it belong more to summer/holiday category?


Both the blazer and the striped shirt have appeared on the blog two years ago. I can't help but wonder why the hell have I never thought of pairing them up together! They compliment each other perfectly.


I haven't been doing this in a while - using earrings as collar tips, I mean. This cute gold anchor pair was quite an obvious choice.


The white socks and black patent oxfords make it all look like a retro boy school uniform, don't they? Last time I showed these shoes here, I ranted on how they hurt my feet. Well, not anymore. I decided to wear them to work every single they until they become comfortable. Now that I've been using them a bit more, the faux leather isn't as stiff anymore, hurray!

August recap!


Hi guys! September is already here. As we wait for my obligatory back to school-themed outfit, I'd like to do a short recap of all the looks I posted last month - and since there was one per week, which is an UNBELIEVABLE frequency for me, there's quite a bit to show. Let's start!


The month started with this cute-but-classy lightweight outfit, perfect when the summer heat wave hits but you feel the need to keep it dressy anyway. Seems like I've done it right, because as I was waiting for my photographer to finish her cig, some lady came up and told me I look pretty (and I sensed no irony in her voice!).



Next up: this masculine retro set, featuring one of the very few T-shirts I own and killer pants. Quite literally, because the day turned out hotter than I expected, so it certainly wasn't easy to go around in full-length pants, haha.



Cuteness and sass combined! This time, I styled the cotton candy-coloured wig into this pretty edgy set, which instantly brings the k-pop fashion feel. Also, I finally emulated the confidence to wear decorative socks. Aren't they cute?



Last, but certainly not least - something that looks like a more androgynous version of the previous outfit. Dressy pants and bag clashed with a sweatshirt that might look sweet at first sight, but goes pretty rude as you read what's written on it! That's so my style. Me and this sweatshirt are truly a perfect match.

That's it for August! See you in the next outfit post!
