My Levi's love story.

         I tend to gravitate towards everything-timeless factor. Something that will never lose its value, like good ol' Levi's. Something goes out of style , something comes back, something never leaves. The legendary quality, comfort and laid-back chic of Levi's jeans are this "something that stays" to me and to everybody who ever experienced its substantial power.  I am celebrating its staying power every time I 'em pull on for any occasion. Besides, with nowadays Fashion and Style reformation you may as well wear it for your Valentine's Day date and be the chic showstopper. Here , I am demonstrating two of my most favorite Levi's denim pants (boyfriend and subtle flair) in the series of selfies, that I paired together and put them through a little editing process to denote not just the inner fashionista but creative mind of myself.  Happy Friday!

                                                                Kisses, Julia.

Rhinestone-encrusted love.


Need a pair of these crystal-strew pants for every season!

Hello from 70s.



            I seriously heart 70s. Not just for its fashion, but for the lifestyle - it was much more easy-going, fun and friendly and with a tinge of frivolity. Back then people didn't have these advanced technology devices that rule our lives nowadays. But they were still able to locate their friends in the crowd. Fashion was not even to be referred to as "Fashion" - nobody was saying "fashion statement"

On how I dress up for everywhere I go.


             I always strive to channel comfort and elegance in one concept. No matter where I am or what I do , I still attempt to look some-how neat and with a tinge of class - it is my rule of a Lady. Even if I happen to storm outside all frumpy and just out-of-bed I at least try to through a cute cardigan or a pair of heels on just to reflect that inner Posh state

What's a SKORT?

Skirt+shorts = a SKORT. 
Welcome to my closet, u sexy asymmetric skortie.

Idilic boyfriend jean.

I've been searching for a pair of wonderfully suiting and slimming boyfriend denim pants for eternity.
And here I am, posing in it ! Surfing H&M I came across those baby blue soft and stretchy jeans that were described as high-waisted and skinny, but I picked it a couple sized bigger and performed visible transformations right there in the dressing room. Then A second later , I was officially an owner of a idilic bf jean pants!

Lavender silk and Banana Republic.

        Words can't describe my obsession about timeless-chic pieces that have been bringing out elegance and subtlety throughout the decades. Pieces, like this sophisticated, breezy silk skirt, that

Lux class sweatpants.


I realize that sweatpants are perceived as outwear nowadays (refined with a pair of fancy heels or statement shoes, of course, haha) , but it wasn't something I wanted to engage with it until I acquired a feel of luxury wearing my new pair of posh Juicy Couture signature sweatpants. They were too good for my at-home activities, like painting , decorating, gardening or cleaning. "My life-style doesn't consist of fancy lays in bed with a dainty doggie with a sky high attitude,

          It must be a sublimely familiar feeling of eagerly strong excitement to everybody, when you serf internet for one thing and you accidentally discover a totally different , thousand times more blood-rushing thing. Happens to me on the regular basis. There are waaaaay too many things to get crazy about. I try to curate and filtrate the load of stunning co

Bellbottoms took the top.

    Bellbottoms are back fo sho! They have been back. I remember back in the days when I was growing up I refused to put my one year old flared jeans on, because it was sooo out-of-step, yesterday story i.e. gone those days when it was a big bang on a trend and everybody cool owned it and flaunted it to the max. 
        Well, today is a different story. It, frankly, took bellbottoms long enough to make an impressive comeback, but we are still happy

Wearing black aka wearing style.

       I adore the color of black for its universality. It is fun to go on mix'n'match missions with it. All-black is flawless of course, but I prefer insetting a note of different mod, or color (shade, hue, tint - any!). A color punch is really bold and playful, but a lot of times when I am on the go, I opt for a low-key color set. Monochrome, in this case, served to be a key concept. It is ALMOST all-black,

Stonewashed denim+patterns.

       I love denim in all shapes and forms. I personally own a countless amount of it. I simply adore it because it is comfortable and stylish. You can go from frumpy cute to sublimely chic with it. It plays your best assets and conceals disadvantages. Skinies has been an absolute win-win for the past decade and a big hit. So I have pairs of skinnies for every situation.
        Here, I am wearing a vintage find by Lee. These guys don't

Yummy pastels.



       For another rainy and boring-at-the-first-sight day I opted for smooth pastels and delicate neutrals. In any sartorially confusing situation or simply when you DON'T KNOW WHAT TO WEAR (happens to me 90% out of all the time , lol ) reach for muted shades in your closet. It will complement the whole package of assets you come with, make you look elegant and innocent and increase a head-turning effect from onlookers . Subtlety and elegance are always

Rain-rain, don't go away!


                              
       Unlike most of us, I am a rain person. I enjoy those gloomy, somber days that are soaked in grayscale. Especially if it makes summer heat go down a level. Again and again , I am not quite a hot weather person unless I am at the beach all day long, doing absolutely nothing, haha. Wouldn't it be a perfect paradise?

Fiery temper versatile coat for cold summer days.

Yes, you read it right - COLD summer days. Not that I am against chilly kind of weather, on the contrary, that is a supremely right sort of condition for me. I enjoy chilly days no matter in which season we have to face it.
 My outfit, on the other hand, came out to be bursting with warmth and elegance. Red is a very strong and powerful color. Combined with monochrome color(s) it creates a Conquerer-the-World concept.

Chunky furs


The minute my eyes fell on this old but infinitely well-maintained fur jacket I fell for it.
Besides its main purpose of keeping you toasty and comfortable it is immensely versatile and classy. It evokes timeless chic and meticulous garment artistry. These chunky knit

Bohemian meets Mod.


Outfit "construction"is always a delicate and meticulous process for me. It is like a ritual.  Except for these times when I am in a rush, and I cannot match anything with those 70s high-waisted stonewashed Levi's or a that pastel purple silk midi skirt. In this case I go for the easiest less risky outfits that do not get 90% of a ridiculous-look outcome.

Thigh-highs and vintage.


Just another evening, spent with my most favorite friends and another outfit , of course !
Thigh-high boots really made it back! I only own a pair, a precious pair that happened to go great with any sartorial choice. Exactly, any. It elongates my shorty legs and provides for extra slim silhouette.
Alongside with it I wore vibrant red wine skinnies and true red vintage blazer.

       Here, I want to swiftly sweep through the denim evolution decades and show how it changed and how fashion trends go in circle.
