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.

Hello dear blog readers!

I am very happy to have you here and to welcome you to my very first post 🙂

When: 12th of September, 2011

What:

White top: H&M.

Pink blouse: Vero Moda.

Skirt: hand made.

Jewelry: Seppala.

Purse: Thrift store treasure, no label.

Shoes: Miss Sixty.

OMG Item: “Miss Sixty Shoes. The platform is thin and high which makes me taller, my legs longer and that is always a good thing, right? 😉 The shoes aren’t as light as they might seem and since they are attached with learther strings, when you walk, it gets a little bit loose so you have to walk in smaller steps and cannot do much running. However, these qualities that may be a disadvantage for some girls really help to improve my walking – I heard many friends say that I walk really staight and elegant in them. A subtle yellow-violet detailing on the front makes it easy to match them with many summer outfits.”

Why: I am very often asked to help pick clothes for my friends to wear on various occasions as well as my girlfriends often come to borrow something from my collection of accessories. After a while I got myself to thinking: why couldn’t I share my style with everyone and perhaps even find people that like interesting unusual and inspiring things just like I do? I love chatting with people  and I also like to see what other people are fond of . And that’s how this blog began 🙂

Keeping it short, I want to just mention, that I take style and fashion as a fun way of expressing feelings, the mood of the day, the character, the charm of the moment. Many of stylish treasures that you will see on my blog, will not come from the designers but from the endless treasures dug out in thrift stores or vintage boutiques.

I have a lot more outfits, interesting ideas and favorites to share. So stay tuned! 😉

Where: Hill of Taurus, Vilnius, Lithuania.

Who: the photographs were taken by Dovydas Toleikis: a wonderful friend and a true professional. 

Yours trully,

Vaiva.
