The Heisenberg Outfit | Breaking Bad

Heisenberg top: Hicustom*  |  Jeans: New Yorker  |  Boots: Deichmann

In case you didn't know already, I am quite a big Breaking Bad fan. I started watching the show because everyone was talking about it, so I was curious to see what all the fuss is about. I was instantly hooked and watched the whole thing in a few weeks. It is honestly one of the best TV shows I have ever seen. If you have not watched it yet, I would highly recommend it - the hype is real. Moving on to the outfit, I recently discovered this website called Hicustom, on which you can actually design whatever you like on different types of t-shirts. I chose a baseball type of shirt with the Heisenberg print on it and I love how it came out. It looks quite cool, in my opinion, and I think this type of shirts are really great gift ideas as well. 

I hope you enjoyed this. Have you watched Breaking Bad? How did you like it?

Favourite Elegant Dresses Details

As I have mentioned before, I want to start posting more fashion related blogposts, which is why I thought I would share with you some of my favourite things from different categories, starting with this post about formal dresses. Even though wedding season is almost over, I am always looking for inspiration when it comes to evening dresses, mainly because I think they are the hardest to shop for. Even when you find a dress that you like, there's always a chance that it might not fit, or it might not suit your body shape, or many other reasons. Therefore, when I find a dress that I like, if my budget allows it, I'll usually buy it, because you never know if you're going to come across a dress you really like in the near future. Anyways, because this summer I attended several weddings, I discovered in my search for dresses that there are a few things that really draw me to particular dresses, and I thought I would share that with you today. Here are five things that I especially look for in a dress.

 (All dresses shown below are from AvivaDress*)

V-neck line. I find that this type of dress looks most flattering on a lot of different body shapes. I wore a similar neckline dress for my graduation day, with the difference that it was a short one, not this long. I would not wear this dress as wedding guest though, definitely not very appropriate for that, in my opinion.

Strapless. What drew me to this particular evening dress is both the fact that it is strapless, which makes it look very elegant, and the fact that it has the golden-white combination. I am, however, always a little bit skeptical when buying strapless dresses because - however lovely and sophisticated they look - they can be a little uncomfortable to wear if they weigh too much. But if you can get past that, they look amazing.

Embroidery. This type of embroidery is something that always catches my attention, mainly because it looks more intricate and unique. I especially like a golden or cream embroidery like the one pictured above, against a dark fabric (black or navy).

Beaded. I'm going to be honest here, I don't like all types of beads, because some can look very tacky. I like when they're one single color and spread as if they fade on the dress (kind of like an ombre effect). I think that is the most elegant way to have beads on a dress.

Simplicity. A simple black dress is something that will go with anything and everything (prom, wedding, cocktail events etc.). I prefer a simple dress over anything and bringing a few appropriate accessories, like some statement earrings, will bring the whole look together.

I hope you enjoyed reading about what makes or breaks a nice formal dress for me. What are the details you look for in a perfect evening dress?

Monochrome Outfit | What I Wore

Sweater: New Look  |  Leggings: New Look  |  Boots: Deichmann 

This outfit is a very simple one and because it incorporates leggings, it is also extremely comfortable. The monochrome trend has really stood out to me this season and I've been thoroughly enjoying playing with different monochrome combinations. I like the simplicity it gives, although I wouldn't wear black all the time. The New Look sweater is one of the most cosy tops I own and it is the perfect attire for the cold mornings we've been experiencing. I do think I'll be posting more of these monochrome inspired outfits, since they're definitely at the top of my favourite trends at the moment.
