Strolling in Style

The best thing about fashion is definitely the ability to mix and match and try out different styles. One day, you can express the most glamour and femininity; the next day, you can go sporty and athletic. For every day, and every mood, there will be your 'comfort zone', in which you feel your best. The picture below depicts one of my favorite (I would say the top three) styles of all: high heels, tight pants, a cool t-shirt and a jean jacket - casual chic with a little gothic/rocker touch. A cup of hot Starbucks and a bag full of make-up I just bought absolutely completes the look.

Miami Trip

I apologize as this post is a week too late since I returned from my business trip to Miami last Friday. The trip has been exhausting as it included conducting seven customer meetings in four days; however, as a result we have a better relationship with the customer and I got to get a little feel of Miami. Honestly, I really liked Miami. I can see it as a perfect college city – it’s urban, it’s warm and it just radiates this atmosphere of fun and youth.

I am not sure if living there at the current stage of my life would be a good idea (for my taste and personality) but I would definitely love to come there for a vacation and get the real fun Miami experience. Everything about the city just screams 'party'. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to tell from my pictures as I’m wearing a business suit, but what can I do – work comes first.

So Many Questions

There are so many questions that torment me on a pretty much daily basis. Where exactly do I belong? What should I do with my life? Am I accomplishing enough? As I try and I try and I try and still fail; do I need to try harder? Do I need to try a different approach? Do I need to let go and focus on something else?  But what if I’m not ready to let go as this is something I actually like? How come I’m afraid of a change even though I feel like I need a change? Do I really need a change? So many questions, so few answers, so little faith. What can be worse? Actually, that is not entirely true – I do have faith that no matter how many questions I may have and how lost and confused I may be at any given moment, the answer will always come and there will always be a ‘way out’. As for now, I am trying to focus on what is, and not what may be. I am grateful to have an opportunity to wake up in the morning, dress up and experience everything any given day brings to me.

Another Speakeasy Event

Last Saturday I got a chance to attend another beautiful Speakeasy Dollhouse: The Brothers Booth event. If you are in NYC and you are not looking to try something new (and ah-mazing!), I highly recommend participating in this incredible play featuring live jazz, moonshine and burlesque. How many opportunities, where we are encouraged to dress in the 1920s fashion and enjoy amazing live music, beautiful ambiance and an intriguing story plot, do we get in today's day and age? These events present the best means to escape our daily routines and immerse into a place full of glamour, fun and creativity.

This time I chose to wear this mint colored dress from LOFT, which resembles something close to the 1920s fashion. I do, however, feel a little bad that I did not put as much effort into my accessories, specifically a headpiece. But I will not get upset - there is always the next time to try out and perfect a new look. That's right, oh yes I'm going again =)
