2.2.12

Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat

Since fascinating Prague is waiting for us and I'm an odd person who haven't had her own suitcase, I finally thought it was the right time to purchase one. For an example I accidentally vandalized my grandmother's suitcase during my second trip to Crete island in 2010. Poor granny, since she was left without her suitcase as a result. Anyhow, I did select a fabulous red suitcase because black, grey or dark blue would have been too plain for me. And I guess you all know or at least are able to imagine the feeling when everyone else seems to have the same suitcase as you and this feels like a nightmare when you're at the airport. Luckily it didn't happen to me but someone I know experienced an incident where three people had the exact same suitcase. So, I hope my new and very first red suitcase which is additionally covered with some cute decorations, will serve me nicely.


I also managed to dig out a cool pair of Guess Premium Beverly jeans with slim leg, low rise and zipper hem from the same shopping centre. Those used to be 147.- euros but I had to pay 29,30.- euros and was so happy and thrilled! Not much time ago I was searching for the perfect pair of jeans but couldn't find it then. I guess good things come in good time.
Well, I also "had to" buy those gorgeous Miss Sixty pumps which originally were 69.- euros but I payed 28,45.- euros and somehow (probably miraculously) number 38 fitted me and I absolutely adore the colour as well.


I forgot to mention one of the main shopping goals was actually Olympus remote control for my camera. I'm very pleased I found it and love the fact it's infrared. Oh, our shopping destination was obviously Tartu and I also got those beyond adorable goodies which E. bought me since I simply love such girly things.
So, my outfit photos were also taken in Tartu and I was so happy it was finally bright and sunny (although cold Estonian winter still sucks). I hope you enjoy the photos and be sure to let me know what you think :)


I was wearing: jacket - Guess; sunnies - Prada; earrings - New Yorker (I think...); striped sweater - Amisu (New Yorker); grey knitwear - Dominique Valrace /thrifted/; jeans - BlendShe; belt - New Yorker; boots - Janita.

    1. thanks, Shea :) I think I don't have any special tips to share. just don't shop too often to stay inspired.. and keep your eyes open :) I also buy very few things with full price - sales are the best!

  12. kui pidevalt ei reisi, siis ei ole selles ju iseenesest midagi imelikku, kui enda kohvrit pole :) punastega on minu meelest just nii, et need on hästi silmatorkavad ja siis inimesed ostavadki neid, et hea enda oma ära tunda, aga võib öelda, et neid on suht sama palju kui teisi tumedaid, nii et lõpuks on ikka sama efekt, et kõigil on justkui ühesugused kohvrid :D ja kui tegelt poodi vaadata, siis need ongi kõige tüüpilisemad värvid, nii et no wonder. mul on kohvritel alati igasugused lipsukesed ja sildid identifitseerimiseks, juhuks kui kellelgi peaks sama kohver olema, siis hea kaugelt juba ära tunda ja muidugi ka kui kohver kaduma läheb. siiani pole ma oma kohvri kaksikõde/venda veel kohanud küll, kuid valmis tuleb ikka olla. ma tavaliselt panustan ka kohvritele vähe rohkem, sest kui kaks korda aastas sellega kaugemale reisima pead, siis peaks ta võimalikult kvaliteetne olema + iseenesest kerge ka. mu eelmine kaalus umbes 5 kilo lihtsalt tühjana, praegune umbes kilo - kena vahe on sees, kui tagasi tulema hakkan kuskilt ja kohver asju täis :D

    1. kui ikka vähemalt aastas korra kuskil käia, siis mu meelest tasub ära :) pealegi mulle ei meeldi selliseid asju laenata.. need ei pruugi omanikuni tervelt tagasi jõuda ju :D
      aga jah, ma pole siiani punaseid kohvreid eriti kohanud, võib-olla nüüd hakkan kohtama :P selles poes, kust oma kohvri ostsin, taolist erkpunast rohkem polnud. vähemalt 50 halli, hõbedast, musta ja sinist oli küll, ning siis mingid kirjud tegelased veel.. kusjuures, ma ei teagi, palju minu oma kaalub.. vaatasin järele - 3 kilo :) eks näis, kuidas vastu peab. minu puhul hakkab ilmselt spas käies ka kasutust leidma, sest siiamaani olen spas käies näinud välja nagu kaamel seitsme küüruga, st kotiga :D jalatsid, kaamera, käekott, riided... kõik eraldi kottides :D okei, aitab :D ma kunagi tahan su uut kohvrit näha siis ;)

  28. I agree! People don't need to have the heat up so high in their homes in the winter--not when we are so stocked up on beautiful winter clothes! Haha. It's seems silly to me too.
    You look gorgeous! I can't believe you got those gorgeous blue shoes for that price! Love love love them and can't wait until you style them :)

    Maiken, I'm in love with your red boots! I think they are the collest I've seen for ages! But you got a good substitution for them for spring! Those blue pumps look fantastically beautiful too!

  38. Wow you found such great bargains! Always feels great :) I love the pumps and the suitcase! Cannot believe you found Guess jeans for such a reasonable high-street price. Also... you are wearing heels in the snow, brave! I guess you are more used to dealing with it than we are hear in the UK :)

    P.s my house is hotter in the winter than the Summer. Our summers occasionally reach 23 degrees, my house is between 25-30 degrees in the winter :P

You just reminded me that I need a new suitcase but I don't want to get rid of my old one because it's so unique and colourful- I've never seen one like it! Hahah your post title made me laugh because I have the heat on so high!

  52. What a successful shopping trip - a brand new (and completely unique) suitcase, skinny jeans at an incredible price and those beautiful bright blue peeptoes. How wonderful! I'm so envious of your up-coming trip to Prague, I hope you'll share lots of photos :)

    I love what you're wearing in this post, too, especially your red boots. And your braid is absolutely gorgeous.

  54. I like the suitcase...in my favorite color, you definitely won't miss it on the luggage conveyor belt, smart color choice. I like your fashion buys, Miss sixty is one of my favorite brands too ...except the brand is quite pricey here. I love the color of your shoes. You look darling in that snowy backdrop..btw i am one of those who complains about the heat all the time especially when i have to tolerate it all year round. But i guess warmth is beYou look tter than cold. That is a pretty belt too.
