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.

Four 2019 Autumn Trends

We are very close to August and although it may not seem like it Autumn isn’t that far. So for some fashion enthusiasts it may be normal to start to consider some first purchases for autumn. I decided to do a nice selection of what is currently available to purchase amongst luxury and high-street shops and online shops so you can be one step ahead. Here are 4 trends you will see in the shops and on the streets in autumn 2019.

Srpen je pomalu za dvermi a mozna se to tak nezda, ale podzim se blizi za par tydnu. A pro modni nadsene je to bezna vec, ze zacnou uz ted premyslet, co na sebe jak se ochladi. Neni tedy na skodu si osvezit co bylo na videni na prehlidkach a co se bude nosit na podzim 2019. A tak jsem udelala vyber obleceni od luxusnich i cenove dostupnych znacek. Vsechny tyto kousky jsou momentalne k zakoupeni. 

1 . Dark Florals – As seen on the catwalk like  Balenciaga, Prada and others

Florals have always been around as majority of trends but many designers are bringing lot of autumn florals on darker dresses, blouses etc. We can expect some gorgeous dark tone dresses with variety of floral prints.

1. Kvetinovy potisk – Balenciaga, Prada …

Kvetinovy potisk jako takovy snad ani nevychazi z mody, ale vetsina je ma spojene spise s teplejsim pocasim. Navrhari ale letos prinasi spousty krasnych potisku a to spise na tmavsich podkladech. Je to skvely kousek na podzim a napriklad maxi saty s kozenou bundickou ci sackou jsou klasikou, ktera se nosi velmi dobre. 

2. Bright colours and Neon – As seen on catwalks of Jaquemus, Prada, Off-White, Fendi and others

Bright colours are fun. I must admit I am not the most colourful person but over the years I got definitely much better. I personally think it is so refreshing to see bright shades of purple, green, yellow, orange when the temperature drops. As majority of people in the streets just tend to wear neutrals. It just brings a bit of fun to fashion.

2. Vyrazne a neovone barvy – Jaquemus, Prada, Fendi…

Vyrazne barvy jsou nahodou velmi zabavne a to hlavne v dobe, kdy vetsina lidi presedla na neutralni tony jako bezova, cerna a hneda. Letos ale uvidite v kolekcich vyrazne barvy jako fialova, zelena, zluta, oranzova, zelena a jine. 

3 . 70’s Bourgeois  – Victoria Beckham, Gucci, Chloe, Balenciaga and many many

I have always loved 70’s. If you have followed me for a while you will know and this is one of the favourites trends for me this year. It is chic, love the colours and how much you can layer and play around. Imagine chic pleated skirts with blouses, sweaters and blazers. Loving the boots with midi skirts and it reminds me of Paris and chic style so much. I am really excited to take out my pleated skirts this autumn.

3. Burzoazni sedmdesatky – Victoria Beckham, Gucci, Chloe, Balenciaga a spoustu dalsich

Tohle je jeden z mych oblibenych trendu. Miluju sedmdesata leta obecne, vidim v nich tolik inspirace a fakt, ze tolik svetovych navrharu letos prinasi tento trend klasicke mestske holky ze 70. let mi dela fakt radost. Je to chic, je to elegantni, vidim v tom Pariz, jednoduche neutralni barvicky, kostkovana sacka, plisovane sukne, sem tam nejaky potisk v mensi mire jako leopard, ci satek s potiskem a je to zkratka parada. 

4. Disco – even for the day – Chanel, Celine, Dior

I adore this trend. This reminds me the time when I moved to UK years and years ago. I loved how girls wore sequins for the day. You could rarely see this amount of sparkle in Czech. And we are talking sequins for the day. It is so cool to wear it for special occasion but even cooler to pop on bit of glitter with your jeans or white t-shirt. I mean so much sparkle and disco fun on shows like Chanel, Celine, Dior or Gucci. Love it.

4. Kralovna Disko – I pres den – Chanel, Celine, Dior

Trend flitru a vubec cokoli se trpyti je pro me. Pripomina mi to me zacatky v Londyne. Byla jsem nadsena, kdyz jsem videla holky ve flitrovych vecech jenom tak pres den. Ne zadna specialni udalost ci ples…proste takhle hodit neco flitroveho k dzinum a triku. A presne tohle bylo k videni na prehlidkach jako Chanel, Celine a Dior. Gucci ma ted k prodeji cool flitrovou bundu a jsem si jista, ze neco takoveho bude brzo i v klasickych retezcich. 

WHAT TO BUY IN NET-A-PORTER SALE?

    1. Zimmerman, 2. Love Shack Fancy, 3. Saint Laurent, 4. Balmain, 5. Self Portrait, 6. Saint Laurent, 7. Balmain, 8. Self Portrait

One of the best sales of the year is here and Net-A-Porter has brought again fabulous items including classics and trends on huge discount. It is the best time to grab a bargain and perhaps you will be lucky and your item from this year’s wish-list will be 50 % off. As always I have put together little edit of some fabulous items.

Beauty of the sale is that you can buy warmer items and keep them for autumn and winter so I have included some great blazers and knits. However lot of us still has got holidays ahead and you can shop beautiful dress and swimwear.

Jako kazdy rok prinasi Net-a-Porter jeden z nejlepsich vyprodeju. Kazdy rok zaradi do svych slev jak nadcasove tak trendove kousky a je to skvela doba na to si poridit kvalitni kousky za mnohem mene. A mozna se vam postesti a poridite si vas vysneny kousek. Jako kazdy rok jsem vybrala par veci, ktere by se vam mohly libit. 

Je skvele, ze do vyprodeju jsou zarazeny teplejsi kousky a tak si muzete schovat na zimu a podzim pleteniny od Saint Laurent ci krasny blazer od Chloe. Ale vetsina z nas mozna stale mysli na leto, vzdyt mame pred sebou prazdniny a tak jsem zaradila do vyberu krasne saty a ve slevach najdete i skvele plavky. 

 

    1. Chloe, 2. Saint Laurent, 3. Balenciaga, 4. Rosantica, 5. Staud

Bags are always going very fast. Some of the classics I was eyeing are gone already and in general this is such a good time to buy a new model to your collection. I have picked some neutral colours and few trends you may love.

Kabelky se prodavaji rychle. Nektere z tech klasictejsich kousku uz jsou davno fuc, ale obecne plati, ze v dobe slev muzete ukoristit skutecne poklady. Vybrala jsem par neutralnich kusu a par trendovych. Jako vzdy je to u me o balancu. 

  1. Saint Laurent, 2. Ganni, 3. Jimmy Choo, 4. Saint Laurent, 5. Gianvito Rossi

Shoes are also such a good investment and this year it was so hard to pick. There are so many fantastic designers and lot of gorgeous models from Saint Laurent or Jimmy Choo. So get yourself a new pair so you do not regret.

Boty jsou skvela investice a tento rok bylo tezke vybrat, ktere sem vubec zaradit. Tolik uzasnych navrharu jako Saint Laurent ci Jimmy Choo najdete ve slevach. A tak si muzete udelat radost novym parem a nebude vas to ani tolik stat.
