The best party wear

Party season is about to hit and that means not only lot of glasses of bubbles but also cute dresses, jumpsuits and lot of fun styling. December is one of my favourite parts of the year just because we can be more out there with fashion. We can wear sequins, leather, velvet and put on those super feminine heavy fragrances and bold lips. We can go bigger than ever and that is what I love. It is the time of the year that is calling for few new additions as it is perfect time to dress up. Whether you are just keen to look fab on Christmas Day or enjoy endless nights with your girlfriends in a local bar.

I am loving so much stuff from Retrofete, Magda Butrym and Attico however I have included also some fab affordable highstreet options.

Nejvetsi party sezona je pred nama a to znamena nejen spoustu sklenicek sampana, ale take uzasna moda plna flitru, sametu a vyraznych sperku. Prosinec mam rada uz jenom pro to velke spolecenske vyziti, vecirky, ale hlavne v mode si to clovek opravdu uzije. At uz mate chut na dobre padnouci cerny overal ci dlouhe flitrove saty, clovek ma konecne moznost se poradne vyblaznit. Nekdo se rad oblece slavnostne k Vanocnimu stolu a jiny zase na drink s prateli. Tak ci tak prinasim vam vyber krasnych party kousku, tak snad si najdete ten svuj. 

Jeden z mych favoritu jsou urcite znacky jako Retrofete, Attico a Magda Butrym, ale zaradila jsem i cenove mnohem dostupnejsi kousky.

Fashion: HOW to wear cargo pants

Pictures via Pinterest

SHOP cargo pants

Cargo pants are a piece of clothing that have been coming and going in fashion. I remember in my teenage years how was I rocking these and now they are back. Some people love them and some hate them but we have seen them on the catwalks and in the streets.

I came across a blog of beautiful Thalita who wears them in this post and looks so fabulous. And I was so inspired that wanted to do dedicate an inspiration post. So here we are. I picked some more images I found on Pinterest and some more expensive and more affordable models that are currently available. I personally would wear them with more feminine items like a silk camisole and perhaps good pair of heels.

They are great for winter season as you can wear something slightly different than jeans and spice up your usual styling.

So which camp are you in? Yay Or Nay to cargo pants?

Kapsace jsou kousek obleceni, ktery se porad vraci. Pamatuju si jak jsem je hrde nosila, kdyz jsem byla na stredni. Nekdo je nesnasi a nekdo miluje. Kazdopadne navhrari i retezce prinasi nekolik skvelych modelu. 

Tento clanek jsem se rozhodla napsat, kdyz jsem narazila na blog krasne Thality a rikala si, sakra ta vypada vyborne!! Okamzite jsem zacala hledat inspiraci na pinterestu a clanek je na svete. Osobne se mi libi i s vice zenskymi prvky jako napriklad lodicky ci zajimave boty, ale je na vas, jak je budete nosit. 

Myslim, ze v chladnejsim obdobi jsou idealni. Je to prijemna zmena od klasickych dzinu a trosku ozivite svuj satnik. 

A co vy a kapsace? Ano ci ne?

How to prepare & shop – Black Friday Sales

Wearing: Dress: Allsaints, Blazer: Next, Belt: Next 

One of the biggest shopping weeks of the year is approaching and I wanted to share with you some tips how you can shop effectively and focus on things you actually need. Sales can be sometimes very tempting so some people buy stuff just because they are discounted and then do not use those items at all.

So how can you prepare without being overwhelmed and shop effectively?

  1. Create a wish-list – Sit down and write down the items you need/want. Remember want isn’t need. I am sharing some of items I have my eyes on below if you want to have a look. This time of the year is great for shopping designers as you can get really good deals however if you want trendy high-street piece you can also snap things cheaper. However you may need stuff for household, holiday or sofa. It really is up to you but planning is key.
  2. Prioritise this wish-list – Make sure you have good order of the items you want. If things go wild online you do not want to panic and buy one item over the other.
  3. Make a list of Christmas presents – This time is amazing to snap some bargains for Christmas. Why wait and buy presents for loved ones when they are back full price? Do it now.
  4. Think of your favourite retailers and write them down – most brands have offers, if you do not want anything specific but want to browse around to see if there is anything you like…you can go by retailers.
  5. Use Shoptagr app – it gives you an alert if your favourite item goes on sale or if it is back in stock. It is easy way how to track discounts.
  6. Read articles that have lists full of discount codes – Shoptagr is amazing but it will only show you if the price actually changes. Lot of retailers only show discount codes which you apply at check out. Many bloggers, printed and online magazines share tons of discount codes and offers so keep an eye on those.
  7. Buy timeless things that you will have and use for a long time – this is a great time to shop for classic items. If you buy black leather jacket 30 % off you will have this piece for a long time. Trends are amazing but your cost per wear will be even better with classic items.

So hopefully you will do some amazing shopping this year. Definitely bookmark this page as I will be sharing some discounts and offers during Black Friday, I may do the same on my youtube channel so why don’t you subscribe not to miss out.

Jedna z nejvetsich nakupnich udalosti roku se pomalu blizi a tak me napadlo s vama sdilet par tipu jak muzete nakupovat efektivne a soustredit se na veci, ktere opravdu potrebujete. Vyprodeje jsou super, ale obcas clovek nakoupi veci bez rozumu a nakonec zjisti, ze danou vec nepouziva ci nenosi. 

A jak se teda pripravit na nakupy behem cerneho patku? 

  1. Napiste si seznam/wish-list – Udelejte si cas a napiste si seznam veci, ktere potrebujete ci chcete. Hlavne si udelejte poradek v tom, co je jen chtic a co potreba. V tuto dobu se skvele nakupuji drazsi designerske kousky a slevy se vyplati, ale muze to byt klidne kosile z retezce. Zalezi na vasem rozpoctu, vkusu a potrebach. Nekdo chce novou pohovku a druhy nove lyze. Jen je dobre planovat, protoze v teto dobe muze nastat panika a vas vysneny kousek muze byt hned vyporadny.
  2. Napiste si poradi – Az budete mit seznam veci, co chcete, napiste si je do poradi od te co chcete nejvice. Pomuze vam to v rozhodovani na posledni chvili. Protoze kdyz opravdu chcete sedacku, ale pak nahodou uvidite kabelku Chloe o 30 % levnejsi, mozna na sedacku uplne zapomenete. Ujasnete si sve priority.
  3. Napiste si seznam darku k Vanocum – Nekdo nakupuje Vanocni darky na posledni chvili, ale v teto dobe muzete najit opravdu vyhodne ceny. A proc kupovat tu samou vec o par dni pozdeji za vice. Zeptejte se svych blizkych s predstihem a snad ulovite co je potreba za mnohem mene.
  4. Pokud nemate nic co vylozene chcete, ale radi nakupujete, napiste si seznam vasich oblibenych obchodu a behem slev omrknete jejich stranky. Urcite na neco potom narazite a treba si to ve finale rozmyslite.
  5. Stahnete si aplikaci Shoptagr – je to aplikace, kde si muzet ulozit veci, co se vam libi a hned jak jdou do slevy, prijde vam oznameni. Je to jednoduchy zpusob jak nakupovat vyhodneji. To same plati, pokud se vec vyproda a obchod ji znova naskladni, prijde vam opet oznameni. 
  6. Najdete si clanek se slevovymi kody – Vyse zmineny Shoptagr vam ukaze pouze pokud se na strankach opravdu ukaze levnejsi cena, ale spousta obchodu cenu nemeni, pouze nabizi slevovych kod. Blogeri, online magaziny i noviny v tomto tydnu sdili desitky slevovych kodu, tak se urcite podivejte na sve oblibence. 
  7. Jeden z mych tipu je urcite, nakupovat klasicke kousky, ktere nevyjdou z mody. Trendove veci jsou take skvele, ale dobre kozene bundy, kvalitnich botu ci kabelky nebudete litovat. V teto dobe se skvele nakupuji nadcasove veci. 

Tak snad se letos dobre pripravite a nakoupite podle svych predstav. Urcite se podivejte behem cerneho patku na muj blog, protoze kazdy rok sdilim desitky slevovych kodu. A snad vyjde i video na youtube, tak se urcite prihlaste k odberu, at vam nic neunikne.

Things I love

 

Fashion: Teddy Coats You will Love

 

Teddy coats are definitely not a new thing in fashion but they are still very big. It is that trend that managed to stick and there are so many fabulous pieces on high-street as well as amongst designers. Max Mara really started something few seasons ago. They created the cosiest coat and the first season it was sold out in a second.

I will not lie and openly say I really want the Max Mara teddy coat as simply they look fantastic and I know it is a great investment. Having said that there are so many great ones starting on around 50 £. And some of the mid-range priced teddy coats from brands like Stand are equally fabulous.

So here is a small selection of some stunning and currently available models.

Chlupate Kozisky ve stylu Teddy Coat nejsou v mode zadnou novinkou, ale porad se silne drzi. A ja se ani nedivim, jsou teple, dobre vypadaji a clovek si opravdu prijde zachumlany jako medvidek. 

Nebudu vam lhat, ze mym vysnenym je prave ten od Max Mary, kde to vse zacalo, ale na trhu je jich spousta. At uz je libo kratsi, delsi nebo barevny, je z ceho vybirat. Nektere zajimave kousky zacinaji uz na padesati librach, ale nektere ve stredni cenove relaci okolo 300 £ mi take berou dech. Jedna ze znacek, ktera vypada skvele a je takovou zlatou stredni cestou je urcite Stand. 

Tak jsem udelala mensi vyber krasnych kousku ve vsech moznych cenovych relacich.
