Grey faux fur coat and glitter boots

Yes, I have a new faux fur coat in my already pretty large collection. I'm not kidding when I say I need a separate closet for all these coats. Guess I'll be needing to sell some soon.
I got lucky and scored this one at a local thrift store for a ridiculous amount of money and buying a kick ass coat that is also cheap is a real thrill for me. I found this beauty just in time for the cold, it's pretty warm, but light weight at the same time. Perfection, I tell ya!

The soundtrack for that successful day of shopping was off course 'Thrift Shop' by Ryan Lewis and Maclemore.

"I wear your granddad's clothes
I look incredible
I'm in this big ass coat
From that thrift shop down the road."

Wearing: Thrifted faux fur coat, River Island top, Cheap Monday jeans, Asos glitter boots, Chanel bag.

Checked scarf & black Nike Air Max

As soon as the cold sets in, I prefer to walk around wrapped up in as much layers as possible. I'm particularly happy about wearing my Zara scarf from last Winter. It's a real blanky kind of thing. I even feel somehow protected from the world and all the people around, cause I'm kind of an introvert, to tell you a secret.
I prefer a dry day to a rainy one, don't we all? 'Cause that means I can wear my sneakers. I'm staying true to variations of Nike Air Max models, because I frankly think they're the best thing and quite warm too. Walking on air is literally what it feels like and I can walk so much faster in them (crucial when taking public transport). I got lucky with a new pair, kindly gifted by UK webshop, Mainline Menswear. I actually been wanting a pair for a while, as my previous black pair got some wear and tear already, so the timing couldn't be more right. How fortunate of me to have a size 6, the choice of sneaker models is way bigger if you count the 'men' models. Speaking about choice, the webshop offers some premium brands, so if you're looking for a present for your beau, dad or brother that's a good place to start.

I wanted this particular black pair, as it blends well into my Winter wardrobe, without attracting too much attention. I actually wore them quite a lot to the office, they don't have that 'look at my flashy sneakers' thing going on and that's exactly what I needed. Let's just have a minute to appreciate how great it is to wear sneakers with a dress! Sometimes I slip into a pair of heels at work, but it's nice to know you can walk back home on clouds instead of sore feet.

Wearing: H&M Trend dress, Zara scarf, c/o Nike Air Max sneakers, Asos sunglasses (borrowed from Annebeth).

Halloween 2014

No, I'm not extremely lazy to post my Halloween post just now. It happened so that we celebrated a week later than usual this year, but if it's okay to celebrate Christmas for a whole month, why not enjoy Halloween a bit longer too?!

Third year in a row, I celebrated Halloween at Annebeth's house, I came to love and look forward to this little tradition! My boyfriend joined me for the first time and it was his very first dressed up Halloween ever. I must say that I'm so proud of his costume and hair, as he did it al by himself. He was dressed as Sweeney Todd and I think it turned out damn nice!

I chose to go as Maleficent, she was always an impressive villain and off course Angelina Jolie (HERO) made her even more appealing. I came to the party straight from work and did my make-up on the train. The dude across from me thought I was a fat weirdo for contouring like crazy and I gave him the evil eye. I actually didn't even try on my costume as a whole until the party. Adult life is busy! I won the horns from a fellow blogger Petra (eternal gratitude), I had the top lying around and bought the skirt at a thrift store T2 for 3 euros. I'm so happy with how it turned out as a whole, I'm certainly recycling this look in the future.

We had such a nice time, our group was just a perfect mix and we laughed our asses off. The food was delish, everyone cooked something and the wine was flowing. What else do you need for a good party?

I already look forward to next year and hope we'll keep the tradition going (wink).
Thanks for having us, gurl!

Trying the Khaleesi wig, I kinda dig the platina blond on me!

The theme for the evening was fairy tales, but we broden it out to films and TV-shows too.

Our group for the evening was, from lef to right: Khal Drogo, Daenerys Targaryen, Puss in Boots, a Zombie, Princess Peach, Agent Cooper & The Log Lady (Twin Peaks), Maleficent and Sweeney Todd,

Tell me, did you dress up this year?

In white

The temperatures have finally taken a dive, not that I am happy about it, but after all  it's the natural flow of seasons. At least I can take my faux fur collection out of the closet again. As you might or might not know, I'm quite a coat hoarder and faux fur is strongly present in my wardrobe. I'm crazy about my latest white one and dreaming about the same one in black. This coat is quite an eye-catcher, especially paired with white boots, but I don't mind.
  Only problem with a large coat collection, it takes ridiculously a lot of space and although we have a new house,m I still fear there's not enough space for my whole wardrobe. I'll be needing a serious closet clean out soon.

For the rest I'm quite the busy bee and try to save up energy, so I won't get sick again. I do look forward to the weekend, as we will be celebrating Halloween at Annebeth's, which kind of became a yearly tradition. I know it's officially a week too late, but the busy adults that we are, we had to reschedule it, but a lot of fun will be had anyhow! I'm so looking forward to this evening, cause I haven't seen her for six months, due to my new job. We actually just got together to take these pictures last week.

Wearing: Zara faux fur coat, boots & sunglasses, Uknown tee, H&M pants.
