Besides the tartan and plaid trend, this winter, an other huge trend is lace trimmings. Sexy and feminine, lace is always a winter favourite and added to the trims of skirts, camisoles, dresses, even shorts, just adds that extra detail to any outfit. I like mixing lace with more basic and tailored items just to tone it down & make it a little more casual for an everyday look.
After finding the perfect oversized knit at Tally Weijl (for under €20, and it’s really kept me warm on chilly morning on my way to work), I layered it over a lace dress to get the perfect combination of casual & romantic. To push things more on the grunge side, and more Friday night appropriate, I put on my pair of black thigh-high suede boots.
To break off the total black look, and given that it’s the season of decorations & decadence, I decided to wear my new crystal ear cuff from Accessorize to add a little bling to the monotone look. It ended up to be the ‘magic trick’ of the night, after no one would believe me that I hadn’t pierced all of my ear!

The month of December. Lights, gifts, eating absurd amounts of mince pies, mulled wine, spending time with your loved ones, and cosy jumpers to keep you warm through all of it (unless it’s the typical 25 degree Maltese Christmas). I thought for this month I’d round up my favorite, budget-friendly, & must-have season knits.
My winter wardrobe is essentially coats, jackets…and more coats. Although I haven’t yet done that mega/ground breaking/bank-breaking winter shopping spree or
barely crossed off some of the items I wished for this cold season, I’m trying to hold it off after I get all my christmas-pressie shopping done. Probably it would be in time for January sales, so until then, I’m just mixing some of last year’s sale savvy finds.
although black has got to be a favourite colour, especially in these icy times, sometimes I like to add a touch of other winter-y colours to my outfit. Such as this old, rusty -coloured mini-coat. It’s one of my mum’s, and although it’s probably been there for a couple of years, my oversized-coat-radar went off when I saw it again this winter. Oversize is the way to go this season. I kept it minimal with an all-black outfit. What do you think?
Starting from last Sunday, it’s finally coat season on this little rock! I’ve been waiting for the right time to wear this simple grey + black outfit with this sweet coat my Mum made for me for my 20th Birthday Besides being oversized and so comfy to snuggle in, the waist cut and large buttons join in perfectly to the retro-style mood I’m in lately.
I like to believe I’ve always had a taste or a basic instinct in liking anything but the norm. I’m not the most extrovert or eccentric when it comes to personal style, but I do like going for things which are a little ‘different’ than what people might perceive as normal. And this bag is one of them. I mean, a bag that looks like one of my cats, (which i still keep repeatively mistakening it for, when it’s laying on my bed) you wouldn’t really see it been worn en mass. Being a little daring always makes things more fun and doing it with accessories instead of some flashy outfit, you’re bound to get it right.

I’m coming down with a flu, and nothing sounds more pleasing than a Sunday in bed, doing unnecessary online shopping and a little brainstorming on my next sewing ventures. Here is just a look I shot a few weeks ago: Blazer, converse, sleek hair & dungarees. Just another way how to update this summer’s favorite dungarees. I took off from a pap photo of Keira knightley in dunagrees which she matched perfectly to a black mac coat, leopard pumps, and an immaculate Chanel quilted cross-over bag. Totally adorable!
