Wind of Change

Dear readers,

You might have thought that I have forgotten about you since this blog has been so incredibly quiet over the last few months. But in fact, I have been thinking about my writing and blogging experience and I think the time is right to announce that I will be moving to a real website. That’s right, the recent time has been to me like a swim for a duck: had to remain calm on the surface but paddle like hell underneath – photo-shootings, meetings, dealing, planning, visualizing, researching.  And so, after torturing my IT specialist for the thousand…th time we finally got it – the perfect name, perfect time and perfect design.

This all process, of course, took a lot of time and is very VERY far from complete yet. We need to move the data, open photo gallaried and this might even take a month or two to finish until we can start writing new things. But it is happening and I wanted you , dear blog subscribers, to be the first ones to know  about this new thing that is coming up real soon (in hasn’t reached even ‘Dressupforme’ facebook page yet, which will, actually, soon have a new name…).

This brand new website is a great dream of mine and I have to admit that without you this all would have never been possible. I would really love to hug you all right now 😀 But alright, enough with the tears, let’s get down to business, shall we? 😉

This new website, whose name is still a secret from public, is going to have a similar idea as this blog but that should turn out as a slightly bigger thing. In my vision, there should be enough space for guest writers, interviews with interesting people and stylists, fashion trends, tips and tricks, enough room for inspiration and crafting. I’m trying to pull together a collection of thoughts and things I love about life. To make that site work as a friend of yours – the one that keeps you company while you drink your morning coffee and the one that pulls you up when your mood is down. To make a site that it would be the second best thing that you open after you have checked your e-mails. This is my dream. And I will need your love and support to make it work.

The new site,will have, by the way, a subscribers bar and I sincerely hope, that you will enter your e-mail once again so I would know that you are still there. I feel you behind every word that I type and I love this feeling  – it’s as if I had you in front of me and spoke to you face to face over a cup of tea.  And I just wish that the cup of tea would never end…

I am not sure yet what will happen to this blog. Most likely, I will keep this one merely for writing. In that case most of the pictures will be taken down as they mill be moved to this new site. Also, this could be another branch and just stay the way it is. We will see with time. For now, just know that it is not the end yet and that I will be posting pictures and articles soon here as well. I thank you for your patience.

And here is a little peak of what happened to my last photo session when an intruder showed up and started stalking me. It’s a good thing that the session was not professional because it all ended up in a laugh.

Teh cat gave a photographer the best terrifying look when the he said “Just ignore that cat and he’ll leave” . Well, the photographer was wrong. 😀

Your truly,

Vaiva K.

Checkmate

Once in a while you get this complicated feeling of anxiety, rush, unease, dissatisfaction – something that is hard to bear and yet even harder to put into words. It’s a feeling as if there wasn’t enough space in the shell – somewhat too crowded even though there is a certain sense of emptiness.  When this happens in your wardrobe – you know it’s time to review all and do one out of three: Keep, Store or Toss. But what do you do if you have that feeling about your life?

Today I happened to walk across the park where a small group of men in their respectable age were standing so still and quiet around few tables that at first sight I thought that was some kind of statue art installation. As I grew nearer I realized that booze was not the reason for them to gather – chessboard and a time-clock was present at each table. And then suddenly, when I was close enough to see their sharp eyes dig into the black and white figures, their thermo-mugs filled with steaming coffee, I understood all of it. We do not just struggle in life. We play chess: now, here, yesterday, today, tomorrow, everyday and everywhere.

O.O.T.D Part III

Strawberry Ice-cream! The first thing that comes to my mind when I look at the pictures of this photo shoot. Probably because of this milky-lavender and vanilla-white combination. This time, I think the cardigan is a total winner!

OOTD Part II

Hello dear readers! ~

Week is running on the speed of light and for the end of it I needed a color and power boost so here it is  – a bright splash of red. I have once already wore this dress in this post : https://dressupforme.wordpress.com/2011/09/15/a-fruit-harvest-season/.

OOTD Part I

Hello! Bonjour! привет! Hejsan! Labas!こんにちは! ալլո! ahoj! ¡Hola Hei! merhaba!.. 🙂

I have prepared a quick outfit of the day for you. In Lithuania, the sun is still high up and it is sunny and warm despite the chilly evenings. Here is a cozy and light afternoon outfit. I think summer is the time to show off really bright and light colors as the sunlight makes them even more intense, more bright, clean and clear.

5 Worst Gifts Ever

Since the warm season is full of festivals and celebrations, I cannot help but notice what kind of horrible things people bring. With all do respect, I am not talking about tight budget – you can still get so many meaningful and useful things for really not so much money. I am talking about absolutely tasteless things that will be hidden in the deepest darkest corner of the garage, or, let’s be honest, will be re-given or find its way to a peaceful “heaven” on top of a landfill hill.

By no means I want to offend anyone or to say that I haven’t slipped during my time of celebrating someones life choices by a gift, let’s say , slightly random. But I do believe I have gotten a long way since I started analyzing it and I just want to help. We live and learn. You cannot take your horrible things back but you can create a new way of gifting. On top of everything a wrong gift is like you shaking yourself on the stage. totally. off. the. beat.

A Happy Hour

A HAPPY HOUR – Interview

Or Three Ways To Get Around The Office Wear: a Scarf, A Jacket and None.

Just recently I was getting ready for another blog article when suddenly we decided to make one spontaneously , perhaps not so polished, but rather cozy and warm , simply about me with who I am and what I do on daily basis. So my friend and I just called each other and met up during my lunch break and from my desk I went straight to a photo shoot. 🙂
