Have you heard of it? I’m sure you did! Carli Bybel collection with Missguided was sold out and I got one piece, who would have thought. I could have gotten more but not a lot of the pieces were really my style. The colour selection on the other hand… heavenly! A lot of blush, nudes, khaki, greys… perfect colour scheme. This ribbed blush dress caught my eye instantly as an every day wear option. It is actually claimed as a nude dress it is more of a light blush than a nude colour, you can even see it on the website as that.
This one runs quite true to size, maybe a bit tight because the material isn’t that stretchy that you would’ve expected. But at least it is long enough for tall girls like me. She also has a rose gold jacket which was sold out immediately. I have almost the same jacket but in blush colour and it was a perfect colour match. I always wanted to be a cotton candy for a day.
90’s is my favourite era, best style ever. High waist, Levi’s, fluffy hair, oversized sweaters, all kinds of footwear…. uf! Wynona Rider, Molly Ringwald, Jon Bon Jovi… so many inspirations. I always feel myself when I dress inspired from these people and their style. Of course you can look ridiculous if you copy them because it is not 90’s anymore but to add a little something is all right!
Ideal 90’s pieces are high waisted jeans, bandanas, all kind of denim, double denim, round glasses, ribbed material, choker necklaces, boots, sneakers. To incorporate one or two of those pieces will tell the whole story. Don’t forget to follow me on Instagram to see more photos of this look. Click: instagram.com/katiquetteblog
Denim jacket- vintage
I am seeing it everywhere over the internet so for the first time I am making a different post. I love makeup but I don’t post about it, I don’t see a point in mixing clothing and makeup. Sooo this lipstick, how amazing does it look?! Jelly with inserted flower and pieces of what it seems like pieces of gold. It looks even more mesmerizing when you see it in person. It smells good, nothing special, not particularly chemical. You have more shades to choose from, mine is called Barbie doll powder.
On the lips it comes out nicely pink and it gets more intense in the first minute. Everything seems fine except the taste is absolutely gross, even to me. Smell is nice, but taste… oh boy. No thanks. So basically I will have it as something to look at, as decoration as it is really pretty.
Beat the sun with some straw hat, why not. It makes the outfit more interesting and keeps you face safe from the sun rays. Double win! I usually wear it on the beach but sometimes you can whirl a good old summer city outfit up.
This season trends are really on point. You put on a good old pair of Levi’s and that’s it! If you have them in the right size they are comfy af. Equally there are still lace ups, stronger than ever. I remember last year at the beginning of the summer I couldn’t find lace up flats literally anywhere or if I did, they were sold out immediately. But now they are everywhere.

A pair of white jeans is a good option to vary if you like basics. Sometimes you have to break the routine of wearing blue jeans and black pants. Biggest problem when you are searching for your perfect pair can be that they are see through. Ohhh I hate that. That’s why I was searching for my perfect white jeans for a million years. Since I knew that Asos Farleigh model jeans have pretty thick material I gave it a try. They are so cool, nice thick material and not completely see through. I won’t really wear black underwear underneath it but anyway.

In these hot days you just can not wear long pants all the time, especially if you have some kind of a work dress code. Short elegant pants are a good option next to skirts if you are a boss lady, yeah. I’ve been enjoying these pants very much. The thing about Zaful store is that you can not really know which items will be great and which will be just another Chinese item. Thicker materials are great, but sometimes you get that cheap thin material. And I believe it is the same with most of Chinese online stores. With shoes I am really careful, heels are usually good just for a little change but you know, you get what you pay for. But since everything comes from China basically, it doesn’t hurt to test some of the Chinese stores too! You can find a pearl there for low price.
A lot of times it is best if you don’t think too much when you are getting dressed. That way you look more relaxed and your morning doesn’t start with stress right of the bat. What’s better! That’s why I like to keep my closet pieces simple and simply organised. Among that come a lot of basic tees and now that a few years has gone by I can say I don’t really miss any colourful shirts and blouses. I don’t feel myself in them. When I was younger I always put my outfit out in the evening for the next day, ha! Oh, I don’t miss these days. Better to just throw on what you feel like the first thing you open the closet doors! You save on time, money, energy, you feel much better. Nuff said!

Vintage jeans on the rise! I hope you are as obsessed with them as am I. High waist, a bit looser… oh! They totally remind me of the 90s and how cool it would be to be a teenager in that time. But we can not change that so I had to bring a bit of that vibes into my life now. 90s fashion is a big inspiration to me but I only incorporated it in my style in a way of high waisted jeans, a bit of Chucks and stuff like that… have to go bigger!
Vintage Levi’s 501 & vintage Casucci
I had my birthday last weekend and now that I am getting older I realise why some women say they are 25 all the time, ha! I don’t want to get any older! But anyway, it was an extra day with the love of my life and it’s all good. And of course a large red roses bouquet! Dreams come true, for real. <3 Basically it was now the first time ever that I went on a vacation that early. I had to soak up some sun and salty water. Croatia is really beautiful. Surely not the last time I will be seeing Croatian sea this summer!

I always wanted a good suit and since Asos always has the best sale I found a good option for those working days. Linen suits are perfect for warmer days when you have to dress up a bit. Some nice glasses help a lot to get a classy look. I’ve got my first glasses a few years ago but never wore them. So now I have these huge ones and they are perfect! I wanted to look as retro as possible. In London I watched Nothing Hill once again and he had these metal round glasses. Big inspo! Bt I will have to wait for a while before I get one more pair of glasses, ha! While talking about Nothing Hill, we visited the Nothing Hill doors from the movie. Something to remember but if we wouldn’t know the address we wouldn’t even know they were the it doors. 🙂
I am sure you have seen this kind of stiletto heels over many blogs and there is a reason for it! How gorgeous are they! I’ve been wanting them for a while and now Zaful has them in their collection.
