Sale Season / Sezon Wyprzedazy

sale sign

Who doesn’t love sale? Personally, I  always try to buy good quality items but at affordable prices- I don’t like to overpay. New York is a great place for bargain hunting- sales are offered every two, three months, and usually stores have big sales at least twice a year: in the summer and winter, not to mention a multitude of sample sales – sales of ‘sample’ merchandise at a fraction of the price, sometimes even 50-90% off. You can find information about current sample sales online, for example on this website.

Girls’ Day Trip to Fire Island / Babski Wypad na Fire Island

DSC_0273 copy

Today was one of the most beautiful days of this summer. I spent it in the company of my two girlfriends. Of course we had a great time, as usual on ‘girls only’ trips :).

Fire Island is a unique and charming place located only an hour away by car and half an hour away by ferry from NYC. It is an ideal spot to relax and unwind not only because it is beautifully situated but also because cars are prohibited on the island. Read the rest of this entry »

Bohemian Accents / Cyganskie Akcenty

DSC_0271

This summer I fell in love with the Gypsy style and I am starting to introduce to my wardrobe pieces  and accessories in Boho style.

In my opinion, today’s experiment with the hat and the bag with fringe like from the Gypsy Camp is quite interesting. The look is easy and comfortable but also mysterious. Brands like Free People or Spell and the Gypsy Collective offer new and unique prints and designs. Both brands mix and match fabrics with different textures which results in intriguing combinations. Colorful fabrics, various leather textures, rich prints and addition of all kinds of lace ideally reflect the Bohemian style, which is easily visible and ubiquitous on the streets of New York.

 

Z wielkiej milosci tego lata do cyganskiego stylu zaczynam powoli wprowadzac do mojej garderoby dodatki i ubrania w stylu Boho.

Eksperyment z kapeluszem i torba z fredzlami  “z cyganskiego taboru” chyba wyszedl calkiem niezle ;-). Jest luzno i wygodnie, a zarazem tajemniczo. Marki takie jak Free People czy Spell and the Gypsy Collective zaskakuja coraz to ciekawszymi wzorami. Laczenie tkanin o roznych fakturach w przypadku obydwu firm nie jest niczym zaskakujacym. Kolorystyka tkanin, faktury skor oraz bogate wzornictwo wszelkiego rodzaju koronek idealnie odzwierciedlaja styl bohemy, co z reszta widac na kazdym kroku na ulicach Nowego Jorku.

Jeans on Jeans

After an almost two- week long ‘move’ of my blog I can finally devote time to photoshoots and stylizations. In today’s post I’d like to show you that combining jeans with jeans doesn’t have to be kitschy, it can actually look quite cool. Two different textures and shades of jeans combined with a plain white T-shirt.

Fuchsia / Neon Pink +

Today I needed an outfit that would be neither too formal nor too casual. I mixed styles and I chose elegant, suede heels in fuchsia / neon pink to go with a boxy hue-toned dress from Gestuz with an artistic print, typical for this brand.

Simple Summer Pleasures / Proste Letnie Przyjemnosci

Despite the tormenting hot weather, I decided that I could not simply sit in my home while the air conditioner blasted away. A trip to the park was in order. I opted to enjoy a relaxing stroll in the calm, cool shade of trees. In the evening it became a bit cooler, clearing away the typical New York City humidity that often makes summer unbearable.

Spa Day at Home / Dzien Pieknosci w Domu

static.squarespace-1

Almost everyone from time to time likes to devote one day entirely to themselves without doing any chores or going out. I call it “pajama day”, where I have time to myself to relax, read a book in peace, give myself a facial, and unwind with calming music.

I am trying to catch up on beauty treatments that I haven’t had time for during the week. I am Read the rest of this entry »
