Lust List: Panache at Simply Be

(Tämä on yhteistyö Panachen ja Simply Be UK:n kanssa, ja jätin käännöksen tekemättä koska sivusto ei toimita Suomeen. Seuraava postaukseni tulee taas olemaan normaali asupostaus, myös suomeksi!)

I was contacted by Panache who asked what I think of their current collections at Simply Be. I have to admit that I haven’t been looking around for lingerie in ages since well, being unemployed doesn’t really give me a chance to shop much. But I do have a couple of sets from their Sculptresse range, along with some from the Cleo range and I love them all – so of course I wanted to have a look at the new stuff. Below are some of my gorgeous favourites, I absolutely love the colours and patterns, so much prettiness :)!

Panache Fontaine set: bra / briefs | Panache Cleo Marcie set: bra / knickers | Panache Floris set: bra / briefs | Panache Sculptresse Chi Chi set: bra / briefs | Panache Cleo Juna bra | Panache Swimwear Britt set: bikini top / highwaisted bottoms

What do you think of my picks, gorgeous aren’t they? If you fell in love with these, you can buy from Simply Be!

Holiday Outfit: New Look

The recent sunny days have gotten me into a holiday mood, and when I saw the New Look Inspire Holiday Shop, I immediately wanted to build a dream holiday outfit out of pieces from New Look. My colour palette was khaki, tan brown, and some classic black and white – with a dangly gold necklace. Can I just get to the relaxed summer days already?

Kevään tulo ja aurinko on saaneet mut ajattelemaan kesävaatteita ja lomatunnelmia. Varsinkin New Look Inspiren ‘lomakauppa’ oli täynnä kivoja juttuja, ja halusin tehdä tällaisen pikaisen unelma-asu postauksen. Väreinä khakin sävyjä, vaalean ruskeaa, ja vähän klassista musta-valkoista – ja iso kultainen kaulakoru. Voisiko ne rennot kesäpäivät tulla jo?

Perfect Party

(Tämä postaus on osa kilpailua UK-bloggaajille, joten jätin käännöksen tekemättä.)

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas? I had a weird one as I was alone, but in a way that was very nice too. Have you guys got plans for New Years Eve? I have none, will probably be in bed before midnight actually (haha I sound like such a bore don’t I?), haha. So when New Look contacted me and asked about my Perfect Party (and what I’d wear to it from the New Look and New Look Inspire party edits), I decided to ‘play dress up’ and see what I’d come up with.

I’m not a massive party-person nowadays, and mostly that is because of my money situation. But when I think about a Perfect Party, to me that brings to mind a house party with my close friends. Getting drunk and talking crap, and laughing A LOT, and maybe going to a pub/bar for a few drinks afterwards. It’s been absolute ages since I last had a party like this, and thinking about it makes me miss the good old days back in Helsinki.. haha ;).

For my outfit I chose a sequin cami worn with a comfy, but gorgeous midi skirt. The black/holographic heels are cute but funky, and go with the silver clutch. The blue nail polish looks lovely with the top, and I’d finish it all with striking red lippy. I don’t really do super glam, it’s not my style at all, but I think that this outfit is nice and festive without being too ‘out there’. What do you think?

Inspired by Boys

I have something different for you today. These collages were created for a totally different purpose than this blog, but I decided to share them with you too, as I ended up REALLY loving these outfits! I was inspired by some of my favourite One Direction outfits (yes, them again, I know) and I wanted to see how men’s looks could be incorporated into female outfits. I also did this for both plus- and regular sizing, and it was an eye-opening experience actually. It was easy to find similar items in plus- and regular sizes, and that really made realise how far the plus-size fashion has come during the past few years! Of course there’s still a way to go, but this development is just amazing! Funny what you end up seeing out when you get inspired by boys, haha ;).

I loved doing this and challenging myself to style things this way. 1D boys were also a good start for doing this, as they all have such different styles – yeah, all of them might love their skinny jeans, but that’s the similarity really. If you guys like this, I could make this some sort of a recurring feature? (And yes, I definitely would use others than One Direction as well, haha!) Actually, if there’s a male celeb whose style you love, please let me know in comments or send me an email, I’d love to get some suggestions :). But yes, please see the outfits below, as like I said, I’m pretty pleased with the results myself! (If any item interests you, you can get straight to the stores from the +-icons.)

Tämä postaus onkin sitten jotain erilaista. Tein nämä asukollaasit ihan toista tarkoitusta varten kuin tätä blogia, mutta päätin jakaa nämä teidän kanssa, sillä päädyin tykkäämään näistä asuista ihan hirveästi! Inspiroiduin joistain lemppariasuistani joita olen nähnyt One Directionilla (juu juu, ne taas, tiedetään) ja halusin kokeilla miten miesten vaatetrendit löytyy naisten vaatekaupoista ja miten niihin saa lisättyä feminiinisyyttä. Päädyin tekemään kollaasit sekä plussa- että normaalikoissa, ja se oli aikasta herättävä kokemus. Mielestäni samantyylisiä vaatteita oli helppo löytää kummassakin kokoluokassa, ja tämä todella auttoi mua näkemään miten pitkälle plussamuoti on tullut viimeisten parin vuoden aikana! Tietysti matkaa ‘tasa-arvoisuuteen’ on vielä, mutta tämä nopea kehitys on aivan mahtava juttu! Haha, kumma millaisia juttuja tuleekin lopputulokseksi kun inspiroituu pojista ;).

Tykkäsin tästä ‘haasteesta’ stailata juttuja tällä tavalla, ja 1D-pojilla oli hyvä aloittaa tämä kokeilu, kun heillä on kaikilla niin erilaiset tyylit – joo, rakkautta pillifarkkuihin löytyy kaikilta, mutta siinä ne yhtäläisyydet enimmäkseen onkin. Jos tekin tykkäätte, niin olisi kiva tehdä tästä ihan jatkuva juttu täällä blogissa? (Ja kyllä, ehdottomasti käyttäisin muitakin miehiä kuin One Directionia, haha!) Itseasiassa, jos tykkäätte jonkun miesjulkkiksen tyylistä, niin kertokaa mulle kommenteissa tai laittakaa mailia, olisi kiva saada ehdotuksia :). Mutta tsekatkaahan asut alla, sillä mielestäni onnistuin aikasta hyvin tässä haasteessa! (Jos joku tuote kiinnostaa, niin +-merkeistä pääsee suoraan kauppaan.)
