Today is simpler than usual

Hey guys!
Today I wanted to create outfit just in black colours – sometimes I am in a mood for that (when I eat too much food or simply don’t feel like hundred percent in my body). But I love the effect it has got on your silhouette – it looks immediately slimmer, very elegant and together with high heels very chic. I picked these black chunky boots from H&M which I got on sale. Honestly, H&M for sale items, shoes especially, is amazing. I am very happy with the result – oversized funnel neck jumper from the same brand like shoes, high waisted jeans from Levis and.. that’s it! Today I keep it even simpler than usual! What do you think about it? What is your favourite color for being in comfort zone? :)

I was also curious if some of you knows how to make jeans smaller. I recently lost some weight over my hips and legs and my slim jeans are not slim anymore. Ohh, how lazy am I to open the jeans and make them smaller! :P Any tips how to do it least painfully? Also which strenght of the needles would you recommend for sewing denim? Many thanks guys!

Sewing: Oversized camel coat

oversized coat oversized coat oversized coat oversized coat oversized coat

I think it is just the very best time to show you the oversized coat I’ve made. Finally, I have finished all the button holes.. I mean the one actually, as I decided to leave it quite open. And still it is more my Juki’s job than mine, I just put the thread through!
However, I can (and am, so much!) proud of myself. First lined coat since high school. Where you guys usually go for inspiration for your stuff you make? I browse Pinterest all the time, it is really massive source of inspiration. (Please find there my weirdly named boards or interesting inspirational ideas).
So as you can see, the coat is fully lined, with wide collar, widely placed sleeves, pockets in seams and one retro button. I love that piece, I found it on Shepherd’s bush market at one tiny shop where you could find all these retro accessories for sewing, pieces for making beautiful Indian  dresses etc. I really love these cultures and traditional fashion which they wear in countries like India. I already work on other designs with some details.. But about this later! :)

Now take a look on the coat and its progress. I started from basic construction of loose – fitted coat where I created deeper armhole for baggy sleeves. Then just marked desired pockets, created collar and started with cutting and sewing. I have to say, it wasn’t easy, the wool behaved kind of weird way for which I wasn’t ready:) (Also forgot how powerful ironing can be!).

What happened last week I/I


last week

Hey guys!
So I’ve decided that Monday will be kind of random post about what happened last week, what caught my eye and stuff like this. And ever since I am obsessed with fashion, it might be mostly just never ending wish lists :)

First exciting information: I’ve been accepted for the L4 course of buying and merchandising at Fashion Retail Academy. I am so excited! It will be amazing be back at school, learn new things and open up new career paths. Also meet many interesting people and create important contacts. To be honest, I was about to write “and try to have best grades from whole class” but since high school I’ve learned that.. it is simply stupid. The amazing grades didn’t get me anywhere to be honest, everything is about your personality, experience and skills!
Back to my school – I am starting in the end of February!:) Anybody else is going to study there?

Yesterday Daniil told me about my birthday present. We are going to Monza, to see F1 race!!! I’ve never been the kind of person doing bucket lists, but if I was, this would be No.1!!! I am very excited. Also was just thinking, how amazing Daniil is, that he is arranging all the time these surprises..
Obviously we are going to make road trip from it to see all the cities and eat lots of amazing (paleo) food. But I might have pizza if will have to. (This is lie, I will want to). Especially, I cannot wait to see the very beautiful Tuscany!

We also started organising our holidays plans but have to wait how it will be with my school and everything. So far we know we want to go to Paris, Rio De Janeiro, New York for shopping weekend, Maldives and Island. And much more, but have to really work on proper schedule:)

I hope that this month is so far good for you as well and all of you are working on the goals you’ve set for yourself! (And tell me about them, I am curious!)

Lots of love xx Lucie

To get the inspiration

I just love walking around those luxury stores (lately Balenciaga, Givenchy or Gucci caught my eye) and being inspired for my own outfits or designs of clothes. Last time I took a bit of inspiration from Gucci collection with all the beautiful embroidery – will do something similar on my coat. And last time in Harvey Nichols I saw the amazing denim jacket with dropped shoulders from Balenciaga. It looked so cool! And soon I saw in on everybody – Kim Kardashian, beautiful blogger Kenza… So I decided to get something similar. River Island didn’t disappoint me neither in this time and I found this denim jacket with quote on back. It is the right cut, the right oversized size.. Such a cool piece! I wore it that day with my Nike leggings and new Huarache shoes. (Btw, I have to say the shoes are sooo comfortable, didn’t have any like this for so long time!

What else to say? I just cannot wait for summer, to combine this piece with high waisted shorts and boho accessories <3

PS: Let’s just don’t talk about my hair today. As I cut them, they behave crazy and happily grow all the ways. At least, they are happy.

Meet my faux leather vest

leather_jacket_2 leather_jacket_1 forever 21 faux leather jacket forever 21 faux leather jacket forever 21 faux leather jacket forever 21 faux leather jacket

Very specific piece I would say but still so easy to combine!

Recently I’ve started to follow Ashley Brooke on youtube and purchased thanks to her already two things. One of them was this faux leather vest. Here I combined it with sheer top and high waisted trousers and the combination looks.. A bit rough, right? :)
However, it is great outfit for party.  Vest has got chic details and really nice look. Next time I would go for chunky knitwear under the vest together wit beanie and heeled boots.  Also am thinking about some combination of it with skirt, mid length probably.. Any inspirational ideas?
Also, how do you like this outfit?

PS: I found myself posting once per month. Baaaad. Every Wednesday and Sunday keep eye on blog as there will be new post!
