P O N C H O

PONCHO 1I was going through my photos yesterday and came across these pics we shot a few weeks ago with Lena and that I simply forgot to share with you. The sad thing is that it is the last photo shoot to be published here as I am “out of service” for another couple of weeks. There’s nothing worth photographing around me lately as 90% of the day I am lying in my bed and watching TV, reading and sleeping. Even the food doesn’t look good these days, so don’t be surprised if my future posts are only about outfits that I will be creating from my boring bed.

Anyway, for the occasion, I went for this very cozy, baroque style poncho which in addition to being a must-have piece this season is also an elegant and versatile outerwear piece working with everything from denim to cocktail dresses.

Wish you a beautiful day guys, and thanks for visiting my blog.

DOWNTOWN LJUBLJANA

dlj1Hi guys, first of all I wanted to apologize for the lack of updates these past couple of days, but you must know that it’s 100% involuntary from my part. See, since last Friday I’m forced to spend 95% of my time in bed as I am having some health issues. My phone and laptop have been kind of banned from my room, so whenever I am allowed to use them, I take a few minutes to update all of my social media accounts and blog which isn’t very often though. However, I am feeling better day by day and hopefully I will soon “get back on my feet”.
Here are the pictures from the last outfit we shot last week in downtown Ljubljana.

Thanks for visiting guys ^_^

LUMBERJACK STYLE

lumberjack style 1Being a fashion blogger is exhausting sometimes, because you need to over think what you are going to wear and bla bla bla. Some of the most successful fashion bloggers out there dictate what we should be wearing and what we should be buying in order to be in, but I simply refuse to think their way. First, I don’t feel like wearing super high heels, even if it is with a destroyed pair of jeans to the mall or to grab a drink with friends simply because we, normal people don’t live that kind of life. It’s not Sex and the City out here and let’s be honest many bloggers (if not all of them) carry flats in their bags to change after shooting, so why selling a lie? Why keep showing us everyday looks styled with the most gorgeous high heels, that we all buy but wear only once or twice in real life? I love bloggers such as Sincerely Jules or Kenzas, who most of the time wear normal stuff, stuff we can buy and wear on a daily basis but apart from a few fashion bloggers, the rest is promoting the super chic style we can only wear on special occasions. What about everyday style, simpler looks? It’s too bad that fashion bloggers avoid wearing tracksuits for example. I love how Rihanna and Cassie manage to style their oversized tracksuits and still look very feminine and sexy and in my case, I sometimes feel bad about taking pictures when wearing a 100% sporty outfit because it doesn’t feel “right” or because there’s nothing fabulous about it. But I am done with this shit, from now on I will take pictures of all my outfits, trendy or not, because at the end of the day this blog is about my personal style, and this kind of look is part of who I am. ^_^ As Coco Chanel said, Fashion fades, only style remains the same!

N A V Y

Being able to wear a mini dress in middle of October is more than I asked for, but there are some things to take into consideration when you decide to step out with bare legs. Even though it is around 17 degrees outside these days, you will need a pair of opaque tights or over-the-knee boots to be sure it doesn’t get too windy under your dress. In my case, I didn’t need to cover up my legs more than that because I spent most of the day indoors.
For the top part of the outfit, I went for some of my favorite fall/spring pieces including of course the light and comfortable shirt and military jacket which are perfect for layering. And since I was in a sporty mood, my footwear choice seems obvious! The super comfy and warm wedge sneakers are great for rainy and cold seasons, so I really enjoy wearing them right now. But speaking of shoes, as I mentioned before, over-the-knee boots are something every woman should have in her closet. Many would say that this type of boots are not made for shorter women (under 170cm) and would make you feel bad about wanting them, but that’s total BS! It is of course a particular pair of boots that really looks amazing on long, skinny legs but they shouldn’t only be reserved for models or model-looking girls. The only thing you should be paying attention to is to find the right heel for your stature. The shorter you are, the higher the heel should be.
For my part, I came across a nice flat pair of over-the-knee boots last year and I almost bought them, but then I realized that I would look better with at least a 7-cm heel ’cause I am not Gisele (as my husband reminded me!). Now I am hunting for THE right pair and am pissed to find them online only. God knows that I cannot buy shoes before trying them on, so I will just keep waiting until stores here start to follow the trends and offer us a greater number of fashionable and modern boots.

Wish you all a beautiful Friday and great weekend!!
See you next post guys,

URBAN CHIC

urban chic 1My version of the perfect urban chic look consists of comfortable clothes and shoes with a subtle touch of chic which means, choosing one or two elegant items that would dress up the whole outfit and make it go from casual to casual-chic in an instant. In my case, my sleeveless, formal and elegant vest does the job as I look at it as THE piece that facilitates the transition from one style to another and gives my outfit an interesting twist. Don’t you think? ^_^

Wish you a beautiful Friday night guys,

L A Y E R I N G

layering 1It was cloudy, windy and too chilly that day to throw only a coat over my shoulders and step out into that unfriendly weather. Wearing layers of clothes is the answer however, when putting together than many layers, things can go wrong in an instant. So the main question is – how to do it properly?
In my case, it was quite simple. The maxi dress I am wearing is thin and light which is what you want to when you are looking to pile on more clothes since the most important in layering is let the clothes breath. As the sleeves are short I wanted something thicker to keep me warm and that would at the same time fit under my coat. The cardi/coat I went for is not only super comfy but it is also matching my dress. Mixing navy blue and burgundy is one of my favorite color combo for fall so naturally I put on my navy coat and accessorized it with an oversized blue and white scarf.

Thank you for visiting my blog guys!

NOIR ET BLANC

noir et blanc 1It’s getting hot today on FPTL!! We went for a very different style for today’s post by wearing two ultra sexy mini dresses. To our surprise, both are quite comfortable.
Mine has a nice and appropriate plunging neckline considering the type of dress it is – by which I mean a dress for a girls night out for example. But if you still find it too revealing, wear a long and rich statement necklace and that’s it! But the most appealing and unusual about this cute little dress are the sleeves. It is rare to find a sexy dress with sleeves that you can roll up. This little detail instantly adds a cool vibe to it and I love it.
As for Lena’s dress, it has an amazing graphic print all over it, that kind of reminds me of a sun, don’t you think? ^^ While it is a bit longer than mine, the bodice is shoulder off and beautifully reveals the most elegant parts of a woman’s body, shoulders and back.

Thanks for visiting my blog guys ^_^

D O L L Y

dolly Initially, this photo shoot was supposed to be very elegant and ladylike, but somehow along the way, we lost it and got the idea to make me act like a porcelain doll. As you can imagine, in 90% of the pictures I am doubled over with laughter and many of them are blurry as Lena was laughing too. In consequence, I can only share five pictures of this adorable dress that made me feel like a princess on the day I wore it. The shape is really flattering as it is very tight around the waist while the skirt is kind of flowy. But what I like most about it, is the beautiful round collar and sheer part of the bodice that reveals the perfect amount of skin. I find lace and sheer very elegant so whenever I attend a wedding or a christening, these two timeless fabrics always come to mind first.

That would be all for today folks, see you next post!

HOOD MOOD

baseball 1Double trouble. The serious faces we tend to make while shooting are giving a false image of who we really are. We will rectify that as soon as possible, it is a promise. In addition, we still have all of our teeth and hiding them is a real shame, don’t you think?! ^_^

As for the style we went for, it was 100% sporty and comfortable, exactly what we needed on that busy day. A kind of look that is quite simple and wearable, that can be worn either for a drink with friends or to go shopping or a barbecue with the family.

Enjoy the pics folks,

Xo, G.
