TARTAN TARTAN EVERYWHERE

If someone had asked me several month before what is a "must have" piece in a trendy wardrobe Fall/Winter 2013/14 I would have answered:  red tartan shirt!!! Together with the grunge style celebrate this simple piece a huge come-back, that I really enjoy. The shirt is easy to style, looks amazingly chic with boyfriend jeans, huge statement necklace, boots and over-sized coat - a perfect choice for the casual look. isn't it? :)  

Here is my quick outfit pick from online shop assortment:

HAPPY WEEKEND IN RED

I don't know why, but at the moment I'm a little bit obsessed with the red color and it's a quite weird for me, because I never wore that color before...  Well, time flies and everything changes... And it has to be like this, hasn't it? :)
About the look: this is how I look like when I'm going out on weekend. In my opinion, metallic materials look really well in winter outfits and combined with red accessories - just impossible not to be noticed on the dance floor.

Belt: H&H
Coat: secondhand haul

DIY- ORIGINAL HAIRBRUSH

Slowly slowly streets of cities and shop windows are filled with Christmas mood. Thus our headache: "What gift I'm going to make this year?" is getting bigger and bigger... To avoid the last week panic I would like to share one idea with you now, when you still have time for handicrafts. In my opinion, your best friend, mother or grandmother would be really happy about such handmade original present. 
It's maybe nothing new for you (I mean decoupage technique), but I would like to share my way of doing it in a very simple way. All you need are:
  • Simple wooden hairbrush (I bought mine for 1 Euro)
  • Some table napkins or a beautiful pattern/picture found in the magazine 
  • Nail polish (completely clear one to cover the top and one for decor (if you like, of course)
  • Simple handicrafts glue
So you simply glue the chosen paper/ napkins on the hairbrush and let it dry. Then cover the surface with one or two layer of clear nail polish, and then at the end all you need to do is decorate your hairbrush according to your taste: I used, for example, some silver nail polish and a little bow. 

Hope you liked it and it was an useful post! 

Don't forget- the best gifts you can give for your friends and family are your time, attention and love...and handmade present is one way of saying "I love you" without words... :)

MY VERY FIRST HALLOWEEN

Hello dears, 

After very intensive week it's time to remember an amazing Halloween, which I was celebrating for the first time(!) in the perfect location: house Annaberg in Bonn. 
I think this place was the best location, that could be chosen for such occasion: historical place filled with an outstanding charisma...What can be better? :)


My costume was made of course by myself and surprisingly in one or two hours (this was the time I needed for my veil to finish and choose the outfit). Plus the time for make-up (approximately 10-15 minutes) and Halloween here I come! :)

Once again I proofed that original ideas bring sometimes better results than expensive costumes!

AGAIN COLORFUL AUTUMN...

What I really like about the autumn is colors, that are so mature and somehow rich. And although these pictures were taken in summer I think the color palette of my outfit already reflect the mood of the calm autumn...

DIY: MEN SHIRT TO WOMEN SHIRT

Hello dears,

Here I am again with my DIY ideas :) 
Inspired by androgynous style and all the clear cuts, today I would like to present you one of my recent re-sew/ re-do works - my DIY shirt, which I made out of an old men shirt, which belonged to my boyfriend :). Actually, at the beginning I didn't have the clear vision how my shirt is going to look like after reconstruction, but with the final result I'm satisfied.

LAST DAY OF THE SUMMER

I remember when I was a kid summer seemed for me like such a LONG period of the year. And it took ages from one Christmas till another to come... Well, things have changed now... It feels like just one week ago I hid all my warm clothes in wardrobe and now again I'm planing what kind of coat I need for this F/W season, what kind of shoes and etc... This summer was too short... I protest! :)

And how about you? How was your summer? Is autumn already in your heart?

DRAGON'S CASTLE IN BONN, GERMANY

There are so many beautiful places in the world, that are so magically beautiful, that once you visit them, you want to come back there again and again... This is what I felt when I visited this beautiful Dragon's castle (Schloss Drachenburg) in Bonn (North Rhine-Westphalia), Germany. Amazing landscape, lovely fairy-tale like castle and view to former capital of Germany- Bonn: this is what you'll find, when you visit this place.

MY FAVORITE

Today I'm wearing my summer's favorite shirt. 
My boyfriend always tells that the print of it reminds a little bit of grandma wardrobe, and indeed my mother had a very similar printed suit, but because of it I love the shirt even more. And I think in combination with this striped black&white skirt the outfit looks quite modern :).
As you maybe already noticed, I'm also wearing bracelet from my recent DIY post: http://julitastefashion.blogspot.de/2013/08/diy-bracelet-out-of-old-belt.html. The necklace is also a handmade piece, and it has an enormous meaning for me, because this pocket watch belonged to my grandfather... I really love clothes and accessories with the personal touch and history, and you? :)

Skirt: secondhand/DIY

Bag: haul from Italy :)





Have a good Saturday! ;)

DIY- BRACELET OUT OF AN OLD BELT

Albert Einstein : “If at first the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.”

Re-use belt as a bracelet sounds a little bit strange even for myself, but I think for creativity and fashion there are no rules that couldn't be broken. :) The reason why I decided to make something out of this belt was for sure this beautifully ornamented metal buckle. At the beginning I was thinking to use the belt as a bag or clutch decoration, but then I realized that these cheaply looking hearts are not removable, so there was not enough length for this idea. So I end up with the plan to cut the belt and make a bracelet! At least to try to do it :)

So there is a final result of the bracelet:



And there is a short and very simple tutorial how I made it.

Neuschwanstein - The Must-See Place In Bavaria

"Neuschwanstein Castle (GermanSchloss Neuschwanstein, English: New Swanstone Castle is a 19th-century Romanesque Revival Palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany." (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org

I was dreaming to visit the New Swanstone castle since I've moved to live in Germany. And to say truth, this travelling destination exceeded all my expectation: breathtaking landscape, incredible "fairy-tale" castle, pure mountain air... All nature and idyllic beauty lovers like me will be definitely in seventh heaven there. :) 
By the way there is not only one object worth to see: in the same area you can also visit the castle of Hohenschwangau (the childhood residence of King Ludwig II of Bavaria) and the museum of the Bavarian kings. For those, who are not so interested in buildings and history - there are plenty paths to hike through the mountains. Thus active free time is guaranteed! 

For more information, facts and history click on the links below: 

And now let's take a look at my photo gallery :)
