5 DAYS OF FASHION – CONCLUSIONS

Living the life of a fashionista

I remember writing the article announcing the beginning of this series, and I can’t really believe it’s already over. It feels like so little time has passed, yet so many things have happened. Lots of videos, pictures and fashionable activities.

The purpose of this whole experiment was, I repeat, self-discovery. I wanted to live the life of a fashionista, and I did! 😀 I chose not to wait until “I have the money” or until “I’ll have more time”, I chose to do it now. Because that’s how things happen – in the now. Not in the future nor in the past. If you want to do something, do it now. Because tomorrow will be just like today and just like the day after and the day after and the day after. Nothing will change. You must change things.

I have learned several things by pushing myself to go through this challenge, and I would like to share them with you now: Continue reading

5 DAYS OF FASHION – DAY 4: SHOPPING DAY

Almost there…

This whole fashion week has been a lot more intense than I’ve expected, a lot of things have happened, I have learned so many lessons and I have pushed myself outside my comfort zone every single day. Which is why, again, I recommend all of you to also join me in this challenge, or any challenge of your choice.

The thing that made it so intense for me was also the fact that I have made it public, so I had an extra reason to stick to it. Maybe if I would have kept this experiment for myself, I wouldn’t have gotten to the fourth day and I wouldn’t have done so many things related to it. I am really glad that I have taken this decision, thank you so much everybody for being with me! I have received so much support from you guys, and I am extremely grateful for that! 😀

5 DAYS OF FASHION – DAY 3: MOVIE NIGHT

Wow, we’re halfway there!

Today was a beautiful day, super productive and fashionable. I have managed to do everything that I had in plan (which you will see in the checklist below), and I am really enjoying every moment of it, this experiment is an amazing way to discover what I like and what I don’t like. 🙂

Of course, I can’t go to fashion shows or restaurants every day, especially because I have a full-time job, but I am doing my best to do as many “fashionable” things I can during one day – wear makeup, style my hair, plan my outfits, go out, take a lot of pictures, be super active on social media and so on. I hope you guys are enjoying this as much as I do, and thank you s much for joining me in this experiment, for watching and for voting on my Instagram stories!

Below you’ll find the daily recap, if you have any comments, please leave them in the comments section or on Facebook and Instagram!

Time for some Gossip Girl! 😀

5 DAYS OF FASHION – DAY 2: WORKING DAY

Day 2 was a bit milder than the first one, because it was not only about fashion, but work also. I have checked a lot of items on my list, you’ll see it below, and it was an overall productive and fashionable day. 😀

After the daily recap from below, you will find some pictures that Maddie and I shot last summer. I never got the chance to share them with you, and I am super excited because I have started to see such a huge improvement, both for Maddie as a photographer and for me as a model, after looking at old pictures versus new ones.

I leave you with the 5 DAYS OF FASHION – DAY 2 RECAP and the photo shooting, and see you tomorrow for day 3 of the challenge! 🙂

5 DAYS OF FASHION – DAY 1: SHOOTING DAY

Wow, this day was intense.

First of all, if you haven’t seen my Instagram stories, make sure to check them out daily. I am going to post all the live updates there.

Before sharing with you the recap, I would like to write a few words about this whole challenge.

Five days like a fashion girl

The purpose of this experiment is self-discovery, that is why, on my Instagram story, I have also encouraged you to do it. I have decided to live five days like a fashion girl in order for me to find out what it actually feels like, and whether I like it, or not.

So far, I can say that I’m really enjoying it. But there are 4 more days to come, so  who knows what’s gonna happen next.

My main problem regarding sharing this personal experiment with you was the part where I had to film myself talking about it. At first I have hesitated a lot, because I was so worried about what people would say about me if I do this. And then I realized that, if everybody cared about what others think about them, then we would all be the same, doing the same things and obeying all the rules, whether we like them or not.

STYLE MUSE: KRISTINA BAZAN

EN:

I have decided to start a new Fashion series, called “Style Muses“. In this series, I am going to choose one fashion influencer that I really admire, and share with you my favorite outfits ideas and trends, inspired by the selected influencer.

Today’s Style Muse is Kristina Bazan from Kayture.com.

I have been following Kristina since she began fashion blogging, 7 years ago. In fact, she is the first person to ever inspire me in the fashion domain, and the reason why I started fashion blogging a few years ago. I have always admired her classy yet playful style and, even though she has changed a lot over the years, I can say that I would still wear any of her outfits. Ever.

At the beginning of her blogging career, Kristina’s fashion tastes were focused mainly on very chic and colorful clothing items. Lately she has started to adopt a darker, more rock-ish style, which I equally like.

If you want to find out more about Kristina, make sure to check her blog and Instagram, I have linked them both at the end of the post.

Without further ado, here are some of my favorite Kristina Bazan trends, that YOU can also rock and get inspired from: Continue reading

EN:

I have always wanted a long, grey coat, it is a very versatile piece for the fall-winter season. So when I found this one in H&M, I immediately bought it, since the price was also pretty accessible compared to other similar ones that I have seen in other shops.

SUMMERTIME SADNESS

_dsc7179

I have always been the type of person who loved rainy days. Don’t get me wrong, nothing motivates me and energizes me more than looking at the blue sky on a sunny day, but the smell of the air after the rain and hiding under a blanket with a cup of tea or hot chocolate… priceless. That’s why my absolutely favorite season is, without any hesitation, fall.

I am in love with fall fashion, maybe because I have always had this weird thing – and I hope I’m not the only one – for getting all covered up and cozy; it makes me feel safe. When I was little and there was a storm outside, I would go and sit in the corner of my room, between the bed and the wall, with one of my toys, both of us covered in a blanket, and not only would I feel protected, but I would also feel comfortable and happy. Therefore, the simple action of switching from tank tops to fluffy sweaters, from sandals to boots and from cardigans to coats, to me, is the equivalent of opening a Christmas present.

HOME

DSC_0072

They say “home is where the heart is”. For me, home is the place where I grew up, because only there I feel like myself, I feel happy and motivated to develop myself, because there are too many distractions anywhere else. There is no place where I feel better than at home, surrounded by everything that, until a while ago, I have completely forgotten to love – the mountains, the forest, the wild flowers. To me, my hometown is the most beautiful place on Earth.

DARKER THAN THIS

Current thoughts: the key to happiness is not caring about what other people think.

I know, I know, you might have heard this a hundred times, but just think about it: it’s right, isn’t it? And I am putting it out there because this idea has been proven to me pretty much every single day lately. Continue reading

NEW IN

 

Yes, I am talking about my new and beloved Zara pants. As soon as I saw the adorable pattern I grabbed these pants and I went to the changing room. After trying them on, I hesitated for a moment because they didn’t look that good with the shirt that I was wearing at that moment but, after several minutes of playing with outfit combinations in my head, I decided to purchase them. The fabric is pretty high-quality from what I have noticed so far, after wearing them only three times.

LUMIERE

Yes, this is what my hair actually looks like. I have to mention that it wasn’t in one of it’s best days and it can do better, I promise.
I think that this is the first post in which I haven’t straightened or styled my hair in any way – oh! except for the “My Zara” post, but my hair was shorter back then. Continue reading

THE PLAID SHIRT

From what I can remember, as soon as I purchased every item of this look during the summer, I knew that I would pair them in this exact outfit. I have ALWAYSSS wanted a red plaid shirt, because it is a timeless piece, and my mother agreed, but not in the good way. She said that it is old fashioned and that she had one herself when she was my age, but I bought it anyway, because I knew that there are endless ways in which you can wear this item.

WHITE AFTERNOON

 

Absolutely in love with this awesome weather! Even though I’m a huge fan of layering and of cozy items, I must admit that I kind of missed wearing skirts and sleeveless tops. 

Later edit: the day when I had this shooting was NOTHING like this day when I am posting it. It is raining and it’s awful. Think I’m gonna wear a long coat, because the umbrella simply isn’t enough for this storm.

But, let’s get back to brighter days.

SPRING IS MY SEASON

 

Aaand it’s here! Spring has finally arrived, and I couldn’t be happier about it. If you ask me which is my favorite season, I will probably say that fall is my absolute fave, but, as soon as the trees begin to bloom and everything becomes fresh and green, I start having second thoughts. Spring is so full of light and color, it fills me with joy and optimism.

YOU CAN STAND UNDER MY UMBRELLA

This outfit has been created especially for my new and beloved Stradivarius scarf. You know that feeling, after you have just bought a piece that you really like and you feel that you want to wear it forever? Well, that’s how I feel about this scarf. Last week I went shopping, looking for a black leather jacket. After a five minutes tour inside Stradivarius, I haven’t found any suitable jacket, but I spotted this adorable scarf. I analyzed it for a long time, I tried it on, but I have decided to leave it there, because I wasn’t looking for a scarf and I didn’t actually need it, because I have so many at home.

DENIM AFTERNOON

The story of this outfit is simple: once upon a time ( actually, at the beginning of this summer ), I was sitting in my room, reading Elle Magazine, when I spotted the cutest combination: denim shirt plus black jeans. In the picture, they were paired with a black leather jacket and black ankle-length boots, but I have decided to change the idea a bit, because it was too rock-ish for my mood at that moment.

I have bought this entire outfit, except for the jewelry, as a gift for myself for passing all the exams with good grades. Initially, it was not an outfit, because I haven’t bought all the pieces at once, but I have always wanted a pair of white Converse sneakers and a denim shirt and I really needed a pair of black jeans, so I decided to spoil myself with some new clothing items.

BUTTERFLIES ON MY STOMACH

 

Summer is almost over, and it’s about time for me to start listening to Lana Del Rey’s “Summertime Sadness”. In my opinion, the 1stof September is not such a sad day, at least for those who don’t go to school that soon. But for them, and for everybody who is just as excited as I am for the “back to school” season, here is a cute outfit, to brighten even the darkest autumn day.

Little Red Riding Hood

At this moment, nobody can empathize with the excitement that I am feeling, while writing my first ever blog post. After years and years of following and admiring other fashion bloggers, I have finally decided to start my own blog, Little White Diamond. I can’t wait to share with you some of my thoughts about fashion, lifestyle and beauty. I know that you may have already heard some of my future tips for at least a hundred times, but I am going to talk about some subjects anyway, even though they are already known facts, because, if I ever give you any tip, it means that it has been verified by me, so you have an extra opinion. 🙂
I am also going to share with you some of my favorite outfits, and I hope that I am going to be able to help and inspire you.
Enjoy!
