Fishkus Fest

Last weekend M and I and some friends went to a seafood festival (as most of you know, I don’t eat meat but I do eat some seafood.) The weather was perfect, sunny and warm. And so I had some fun with my outfit:

IMG_7411My theme was center around a play on black and white, the monochrome look is still a favorite for me but I mixed things up a bit by wearing one black and one white Melissa Barbie Stiletto print ultragirl flat shoe. When I bought them in 2011 I first bought the white pair and then right away I knew I needed the black pair too in order to do this mixed and matched look.

Dinner Date Lantern Dress

IMG_7313After returning from Rome, M was in a bit of a mood as he hates returning home from holiday (I’m the complete opposite, I love going back home because I miss my bed, I miss my closet, I miss my pets, friends and family) and he didn’t want to stay at home so we went out to have dinner inevitably watch the hokey (Prague and Ostrava are hosting this year’s hokey world championship). I wore an easy outfit. I started out with picking this dress to wear. It’s from Asos and is a structured scuba dress, it is the most comfiest thing ever! I’ve worn it I think twice before but never got pictures and then I was saving it to wear to someplace special. And then I thought, forget saving it! Wear it now and enjoy it!

Age of Ultron

IMG_7168Before we went on our Roman holiday we went to see the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie on Thursday night. I had been so excited to see this film, waiting impatiently to see it for months. Anyways, truth be told, I was a tad disappointed. The script felt a little too all over the place, it had way too many characters and subplots to be a coherent story, and though I would have been a fan of the Black Widow/ Hulk relationship, it felt very forced (and the ending of that kind of sucked). I loved the first Avengers movie (we went to see it twice in the cinema because it was so good) but this one fell a bit short. I would see it again but not in theaters. However, I’m still a fan of the franchise and will go see the other movies when they come out. Anyways, here’s what I wore.

OMG Lady Dragon

IMG_7149I mentioned buying this dress and the clutch yesterday, and here’s me wearing them! The outfit is from Sunday, M and I went to a family dinner (celebrating his dad’s birthday). I knew I wanted to wear the dress, no actually it started with me wanting to wear the clutch bag. And having picked it out to wear, I knew I needed a semi-neutral dress, something to complement the bag and so a LBD was an obvious choice, especially considering I had a new LBD in my possession! The hardest part was to choose the shoes as it was a rainy day and we weren’t going by car but I still wanted to wear heels.

Files of New: Ready for Spring

melissa green flatsToday I’m sharing another files of new post, since I’ve been naughty and bought a few things. My bank account is weeping but that’s a story in itself. But back to the new crap, let’s start with shoes, as shoes are always my favorite. The newest member of my shoe family are these Mel by Melissa flats that I sneaked into M’s order. I had been missing a pair of green Melissas and these seemed like the perfect pair for me.

Ootd: Pinks and pleather

IMG_6990bJust a quicky today. Here’s an outfit from last Friday. I had taken the day off from work because we were supposed to attend a wedding but unfortunately M wasn’t feeling well so we canceled our attendance and just stayed home instead. We did go out to lunch but that was it.

At the Prague Zoo with Doris

IMG_7017One of my favorite things about the Prague Zoo is its location. If you take the cable way it lends an especially beautiful view once you get to the top (you can just walk it up but taking the cable lift is fun). We had a fun time but I was freezing so bad (I was wearing a sweater and a jean jacket plus a pashmina scarf but it was so cold!)img_6998

Caped Out

zara woman cape and yellow dressIt was a bit dark by the time we took these photos so the quality isn’t very good, sorry. This outfit is from last Wednesday when M’s brother celebrated his birthday so the whole family went to dinner at our favorite restaurant. I really liked the outfit though I would have taken different shoes if I hadn’t been running late and then literally running to catch the bus. Oh well, next time I need to plan my time better so I have more time for the commute (1 tram stop and then 2 bus stops isn’t much of a commute but whatever.)

Strawberry shortcake

This is a photo (a bad one too, the lighting is terrible) from last Friday. I wore this to dinner and then to the vet’s office (Bananas needed to get her shots). Luckily the vet we go to is really fast and you go by appointment so there’s no waiting! Bananas was a sweetheart although she didn’t talk to me the next day (she was hiding in her little house, ignoring me. I’m not surprised, getting a vaccination shot is no fun. She has since forgiven me and all is right in our little world. Unfortunately she does need to get a second shot in two weeks.)

new look strawberry clutchMy outfit was centered around this  fun New Look Strawberry clutch bag. I love clutches especially when the weather is warmer. Though to be honest I could do with a bigger bag. (The search for a cute but generously sized bag continues.)

Hearts and Polka dots

IMG_6823This outfit was from Sunday when M and I went to have lunch at M’s parents’ flat. We walked there instead of taking the car (M wanted to have beer and I didn’t feel like driving, because I never feel like driving) and it was actually quite cold (it had snowed in the morning). I started with picking out which bag I wanted to take. I don’t have that many good bags, a lot of my bags are showing considerable wear and tear, and most of my bags are functional rather than fashionable. However, this H&M spotted white and black satchel bag is one of my cuter bags. It fits a good amount of stuff and I think it’s really adorable too!
