Black leggings

Leggings are probably one of the most popular fashion and clothing item these days. They are comfortable, easy to put on and will not hold you back on your way. You can combine them with almost anything. They're a lot like jeans in that way. Here are some of mine looks...
Hip, modern and casually elegant. There are few words here that maybe don't go together but it's the best way to describe this. Personally, one of my favorite looks today.
Leggings are today's topic so, for this outfit, I've chosen black leather ones. They can be really sophisticated if you combine them properly.
For the top, I've chosen black sequin tunic (long shirt) with golden details. It will cover all parts of your body that are not supposed to be seen even though you're wearing something that tight as leggings.
Big black leather bag will be the perfect accessory for this. It won't stand out much but will complete the look you were going for.
Black heels are a must-have item and they are suitable for every even remotely elegant look. You can go with leather heels too, but I decided to soften this look a bit so I've chosen suede. Also, you can see that I almost always put heels with straps. It just easier to walk in them.
If I were you, I wouldn't put on any jewelry. This shirt has all you need to sparkle. Maybe some small earrings would be just perfect.
As always, there's one outfit as the opposite to the first one. More for casual occasions and people who are always moving.
Again, black leggings. This time, they're not leather, but that's not really that important. Just be careful that you neutralize the glow from the leather if you choose it.
There's also a checkered blouse. Also tunic, for the same reasons. This item is really cute, more for rock style, playful and very practical cause you can wear it with your sleeves long or short. Belt will perfectly show your figure.
Black leather (or not) boots are very comfortable and great for moving in the town. They will also fulfill your "rock" style.
A hat is always a nice touch if you find the right one and if you know how to wear it. I put it here because my friend loves hats and hopefully she'll like the styling. I'm not that big fan of them, but I have to admit, they always catch my eye on the street. The safest way is to buy simple black one. You can't go wrong with it.
Two more looks just for you to choose from.
Hopefully, you'll find something you like here.
Something for everyone...
Be careful with how tight are your leggings and what is visible through them. That's why I suggest tunics!

One tip: Tight bottom - baggy/loose top, and the other way around!

Denim jacket

As we all know, denim jacket was once very popular. Then it faded away and now it's back big style. There are so many designs and, as for every clothing item, each represent something: certain character or occasion.
We'll start with the most romantic outfit today.
Here I've put together beautiful white lace sleeveless dress with the short sleeves jacket. Jacket is very modest and simple and that suits this dress. I've chosen the jacket with short sleeves just because this dress doesn't have sleeves. This way, you can actually show what season are you in. Also, notice that the jacket is short. Also very popular today but it also contributes to the whole gentle and romantic side of this outfit. Great for the spring time.
Flat shoes in this light, beige color only add softness and romance into this outfit. The bow on them is also a nice detail. Not too much cause it's pretty small, but it will be a nice finishing touch.
In this style, I found this beautiful beige clutch, also with a bow motive. I've heard bows and butterflies are a huge hit these days.
Accessories are very simple. Golden necklace and golden hoops earrings. Why golden? Because I think gold more romantic than the silver. 
And I have to have one rock version too. (I'm not into rock so I have no idea about their style, so I apologize if this isn't a definition of it. When I say rock, I mean more daring.)
There's a denim jacket to start with, of course. A bit darker, longer, with long sleeves.
Next, we have simple black pants. They go with, basically, everything. Safe call would be to choose denim, as I did.
There is white/gray/black lion sleeveless T-shirt that is perfect for this outfit because it shows personality for you and it looks really cool, you have to admit it. As an alternative shirt, I've chosen this cropped Batman shirt. Since I love Batman, I had to put him somewhere.
There are also black earrings that will be a perfect addition to the dark outfit, but will also show that you care for accessories and style.
In the end, there are black studded boots. Enough said. 

Here are two more outfits of the same style. The left one is fearless and the right one is simple girly one.
Studded bra, cropped T-shirt, studded high-heel boots and black hoop earrings are a great combination. Because I'm not a big fan of walking around naked (just with a bra and jacket) I had to bring some shirt in this.
Denim flat shoes go great with denim jacket. There's a sleeveless lace dress with a brown belt. Everything goes great together and to spice things up, I've added a very modern gold chain necklace.

Yellow dresses

Summer is coming, slowly, but it is. And bright colors are perfect to lift moods up and to announce warmer days. Since we don't have summer yet, we can pretend we're on a beach in these pretty yellow designs.
We are going to start with the most elegant one. 
Here we have a pretty simple yellow dress with only one highlight on the waist. I used this one because I saw it in Gossip Girl and Blair Waldorf wore it really well. I liked it. It's casual and elegant at the same time. Great for the young ones and for older ladies. Conservative and very playful. Perfect choice for everyone. 
Be careful if you don't have the "perfect" waist because this sewed belt will draw attention to it. 
I've added perfectly yellow heels for the perfect catwalk.
Every girl needs a clutch. Little bag that can store almost everything in it. I went with this black one with a hole so you can hold it in more than one way. And this handle also makes it easier to hold it if you have hands full with champagne glasses.
Since I love chokers, I've put a black one here. Of course, this will look great with any black necklace.
Care to join me for a walk through the park? Design perfect for spring strolls. Comfortable and noticeable.
Simple yellow dress with a bit of unusual shoulder straps and everything seems perfect. The length is also adjusted for a casual dress-up.
Flat beige shoes are girl's favorite item in the summer so I couldn't do an outfit without them. These have straps so they wouldn't fall off if you need to run for the bus.
Big beige bag for all the things you think you need. From mobile phone which you can't imagine your life without, to that little notebook you keep carrying around in case you'll need to write something down but you never do. But, you have to admit it, it looks great with these items.
Earrings are also beige and have a feather motive which is very popular these days. (If you wear earrings, it's better not to wear a necklace.)
And again a motive from Blair Waldorf, a hairband. Yellow, to match the outfit, will look great if you have darker hair but that doesn't mean blonds can have it too. 
I have to prepare you for the drops of water from the sky. Yes, I'm talking about this rain that keeps falling. Since it'swarm outside, you can still wear a dress, but you better take a coat too. Just in case it gets colder in the evening.
Yellow strapless dress. About a knee-length.
Beige sandals or beige boots. It's your choice. I haven't put boots here because I really can't see them with this dress but if you have some other style, be my guest.
Cause it's a casual styling, I've chosen only small beige stud earrings.
Little black clutch in the bow shape is also very modern these days and very practical, if I may add. It's usually bigger than the rest of the clutches but still small enough so your arms won't fall off.
And, another Blair Waldorf's fashion item, a green coat. I can't tell you how much I love the finishing touch it gives to the outfit.

Sparkles with black

Every girl needs a bit of sparkles in her life. Some have money and just go and buy real diamond and that's pretty much all they need. Others buy sparkly clothes and accessory. It's a problem when people don't know when is enough.
So, I saw a woman today walking outside wearing something like this. Now, I know it's wrong to judge people by their looks, but if I want to keep this close to a fashion blog I need to say that this is a total no (!!) when it comes to a good fashion sense. Everything's sparkly and, to add some more bad taste, in different colors. That's not the way to use sparkles. You'll just look like a bad disco ball.
Now, I've put this together. This is a proper way of using a shiny or sparkly fashion, clothing item.
We have a pretty, simple silver dress. To keep the highlight on it, everything else is black. I'm not saying everything necessarily needs to be black but some dark colors will fit right in. Be careful that the color you choose matches the color of the sparkly item and that you only use one color. You don't want to look like a Christmas tree.
I've used simple black pantyhose, black shiny heels and a simple black blazer. This blazer will reduce the sparkles and everything will seem more sophisticated. Also, you can wear shiny shoes because their color is neutral and shine will be a nice addition to sparkles since you don't have anything else that will shine. And they add a bit of elegance.
Also, when using sparkly clothes, don't put on much jewelry. I've only put here one simple silver bracelet.

This is more party version of the previous look. Again, I'm keeping it simple. Sparkly golden dress is enough by itself. Simple black pantyhose and black heels and you're good to go. 
You don't need any jewelry for two reasons. Like before, adding jewelry to a dress like this is wrong from a fashion point of view. And, if you're going out, jewelry will just be in your way. Your earrings will be all over the place if they're dangle (and not studs). The same will happen with your necklace, especially if it's long. Don't bother yourself with those. (You can wear some simple bracelet. Or some really small stud earrings.)

For the end, combination of sparkles with something simple and regular.
Here we have a basic black T-shirt and a sparkly skirt on the left and the opposite on the right.
Both combinations could work because you're keeping the sparkles under control.
In the left situation, you can put sparkly shoes too, but I suggest that you think about it before you actually wear it. You need a personality to wear sparkles.
And, because I love these boots, I had to put them in one combination, so you can also wear black boots with a playful skirt on the right.

Checkered blouse

Checkered blouse is both used in casual and more formal occasions. I personally love checkered blouses. Especially those with 3/4 sleeves. That's why I've chosen one just like that to make two (actually four) outfits.
 This is my favorite look off all times so I had to put it first. We have red checkered blouse with 3/4 sleeves and simple skinny jeans. What I absolutely love about those sleeves is the fact that I can put bracelets on my wrists and they'll be visible (it's a problem with long sleeves). And I love bracelets!
You can see the difference between the left side and the right one considering the accessories. Don't mind bracelets and the watch. Those fit on both of these looks I'm about to explain. On the left, we have brown boots with middle-height heel. There's also a little brown bag that will be perfect for all your essentials. This look could be great for a date if you're going somewhere casual. You'll be modern, trendy, comfortable and also very good looking.
Right side is more comfortable and great for walks and shopping or going to school. Heel on the boot is lower (almost non-existent) and the bag is bigger so you can put more stuff (that you usually don't need but still like to have) in it.
If I had to pick, I would choose the left side, but all-in-all, this in my favorite look and I would wear this all the time if I could.
On the other side, we can make checkered blouse and simple jeans look more elegant. These outfits will suit a work surrounding and maybe a stroll in the city (I have an image from "Sex and the city" in my head). We also have two possibilities here.
Black one consists of this black and silver bracelet and the black bag. Since we have something black on the sleeves, black accessories will fit right in. Don't panic if there isn't anything black on your blouse. Black goes with everything!
There is also a softer combination on the left. Beige bag and bracelet with sand/earth tones really show off your romantic side.
This beige cardigan and black wedges (middle-height heel) are supposed to look great with both of possibilities. You really can't go wrong with black and beige and you can combine them even though they're contrast colors.
Use both of these looks for going to work or having a coffee on the main square. You won't go unnoticed.

Little black dress found colors

Since I wrote a bit about little black dress that every woman should have, today I would like to present the fun side to black dresses. If you add just a bit of colors, black dress could be the only thing you need for a perfect look.
I've put together two, mostly the same, outfits. The only difference are the colors combined with the black dress.
Pink styling shows more girly and party side. This is actually a great look for a Saturday night out.
Red one is more sophisticated and a bit more elegant. This could be worn at some cocktail party.
The point of this is to show you how colors have a great impact on how people see you and every color has its time to shine. You can't wear anything anywhere.
I'm personally more for the red one.
And one more for the end. This is not a dress like those were before. This one is more casual and has this white stripe that breaks the monotony. This is actually a perfect dress for every day. It's casual, has shoulder straps which will enable you to move freely. It's also fluttery and will not make you fall down because you couldn't move your legs. Nothing says casual like yellow, so I decided to choose this color for accessories. Yellow also bring out the good mood. Left shoes are really for everyday walks in the city. They have thick heel which makes walking more comfortable. It is also important that the heel isn't too high. For more daring women out there, here are yellow boots in the right corner. This can also look great, but you have to have a proper attitude to go with it.

Little black dress

We'll start with some basic items.
Every woman should have at least one black dress in her closet that she could be able to wear in any occasion. That's why this dress should be as simple as it gets. The way you combine it with some other fashion items or accessories defines the occasion.
So, you have to have black dress and black heels to go with it.
My personal favorite is the middle one, but if I have to pick the most neutral one, it would be the first one. You can't go wrong with the last one either because it is great for colder days.
This dress should support everything, from funerals to weddings. Also, I think little black dress should be about knee-high and with some kind of straps. That way, you'll feel safe that nothing will fall or get too much up, unexpectedly. And, of course, that description fits in in every surrounding.
It should also be a bit away from your body so you could move freely (first one - yes, last one - no).
If you want, you can put a brooch somewhere to light things up.
Black shoes are great in any combination, just be careful which material you're using. If you have dresses like this in the picture, go with suede. If you have more shiny dress, go with (artificial!) leather shoes. Strappy hells will make you feel more secure and they definitely won't fall off.
Here are two examples of combination with these dresses. First one is more elegant and stylish. More suitable for a wedding or a party. Second, right one, is something you would see in the movies in funeral scenes. This is perfect outfit for that occasion. Everything is black but this pearls really make the outfit pop out, in a good way.
Everything is simple, yet very effective and elegant.

All new

I've thinking a lot about this blog and since I don't have time to post very often about nails (cause I actually have to do everything I post), I've decided to expand my topics a bit. This blog will still keep posts about nails and I hope I won't disappoint you with it. But I've decided to put some fashion in it.
Again, everything you'll see here is just my opinion and something I like. I won't try to convince anybody into anything they don't want or like.
If you have any suggestions on fashion or nails, feel free to comment and share your thoughts. Also, I have to warn you that I'll probably change the appearance few more times because I'm looking for the perfect one. If you have any thoughts on that too, say it. I will appreciate a good advice.
I'll try to post many photos, because fashion and nails are based on looking at stuff. You'll also see a lot of me here. You've been introduced to my nails, now, I'll give you a tour through my closet. Once again, I do not own a clothing store and I'm not a professional, so what you'll see here is perfect for normal girls living their ordinary lives. ;)
Hopefully, you'll have fun here and you'll pick up some useful advice. :))
Here we go!!!
Diamonds are girl's best friends after all :)
