TRUE COLORS

 Today's outfit is super colorful! I love to wear colorful clothes and even though this outfit was a little experimental I think it looked amazing. What do you think?
 People in general do not wear very colorful clothes. They might have something colorful on, for example a jacket or trousers but then the remaining pieces of clothing are black, white, grey or brown. Usually in the spring and summer people dress more colorfully than in autumn or winter but I think it might have something to do with the fact that clothing stores usually offer pastel colored clothes in spring and in autumn they offer darker colors. I'm not saying that everyone should dress like me ;) but I think that it is quite boring to dress in black, white, grey and brown all the time.
Some years ago these kind of owl necklaces were popular and you could find one in almost every store. I still like the necklace though it has been while since I bought it. I would like to have earrings which would be the same style.

GRAFFITI ON THE WALL

Hi friends! Here is some outfit photos from this week. If you have not noticed I prefer to wear red. So red dress, red lipstick, red scarf and red house are the keywords today. ;) Tallinn old town is beautiful and ideal place for taking pictures since there are so many charming buildings like this little red house. Although not all buildings are in good condition and many are ruined by graffiti.  Personally I like graffiti if they are well-made, not just some stupid text in the wall, and if they are in proper place. I do not understand why some people try to ruin someone else's property by writing something stupid on the wall. Yet I had to include the graffiti to these pictures so it would not be too idyllic.
The dress is very romantic and has country vibes. It could be a little bit shorter but not too much shorter. Since it almost reaches to my ankles, it makes me look shorter than I am especially when I am not wearing high heels.
Had to show you guys how the dress swings. ;)

MY HAND-MADE BALL GOWN

So I was going to a ball but I did not have appropriate ball gown. I looked through few shops which offered these kind of dresses but I could not find any dress that I liked and the prices were considerable high comparing to the fact that I might only use it once. That is why I decided to sew my own ball gown. I had to say that by doing so I saved a lot of money but in the other hand I wasted a lot of time for sewing which I could have used for something 'useful' instead. I was still quite happy with the outcome.
As a young woman I feel like that everyone expects you to have a new expensive dress/outfit in every party you go an yet guys can wear the same black suit. In my opinion there is no shame in wearing the same dress over and over again, buying second hand or doing your own dress. I tried to cut my expenses for the ball not only by doing my own dress but also I tried to use as much accessories that I already had. So after all I only bought fabrics to the dress and new shoes since I did not have any flat ballerina shoes. I also did my own make-up and hair.
These pictures were taken quickly before heading out so the lighting was not the best.
How did you like my hair and outfit?
