More Street STYLE - from NY

Couldn't help but post another piece on NYFW street style.
It's just that some of the outfits they wore are such an inspiration and I must admit I love the nonchalant attitude they pair their outfits with. I wish more of that for our everyday outfits as I've began to grow so saturated with the same pieces I see on the streets...
Most of us do not have the guts (?) / courage (?) or attitude to be different and stand out and that's a pity...

Miroslava wears the pattern of the season and looks absolutely fabulous!

Olivia Wilde shows her inner chic lady with a salmon boucle girly coat.

I particularly love this outfit, it's more than perfect for a day at the office.

She lets the sequin sweater do all the talk, pairing it with an all black ensemble.

Simple black and white, yet soooo chic...

She looks cool and comfy and kudos for the beanie :)

Great pants, great boots, nice color combo.

Daring outfit with those baggy jeans and black & white cowboy boots.

Coco Rocha sporting multiple trends in one look: a perfect ombre hair, buttoned up shirt with oversize necklace, wide split pants.

Olivia Palermo, always the style icon. Gotta love that white sweater...

Miroslava Duma with an all white ensemble and a statement purse for a day look.

Perfectly fitted skinny jeans and a black fedora make 90% of this lovely outfit.

In LOVE with her bag...

That amazing biker jacket from Burberry...

Now that's a statement leather jacket and she pairs it with over the knee leather boots.

One of the outfits I love most. So cool, so chic, so affordable.

Retro girlie look that cannot be ignored...

In love with her shoes and her overall attitude.

Mira sporting 4 major trends in one look: buttoned up shirt, statement necklace, boucle sweater and over the knee boots.

The perfect attitude for that outfit

My checklist for this FALL - Part 1

Finally new collections are here and in a day or two I'll have to start my usual fall fashion spree.
As I'm definitely a shopaholic (with a limited budget though), this year I decided to follow my New Year's Eve resolution and "buy with(in) reason".
That means not giving in to the urges and impulses of everything I see (and for sure don't need but they just look nice) and buying with a LIST.
A list I have already made by (step 1) browsing my wardrobe and deciding what I need most and (step 2)  browsing online and finding the alternative prices for each item.

So it goes like this:

I need fall black boots. That I can wear with boyfriend / skinny jeans and leggings. I do however need a bit of heel, so here are my alternatives:

a). SPLURGE: Tibi Piper Black Boots, 598 USD

b). SAVE: H&M Platform Boots (not even in the same category but still black biker boots with a height boost) 60 USD

I really need a pair of really cute sneakers.

a) SPLURGE: Giuseppe Zanotti black and gold sneakers 850 USD

b) SAVE: Supra TK Society High Tops 77 USD

Plus a nice cross body bag that can hold all of my items and still leave room for my scarf.

a) SPLURGE: Alexander McQueen Heroine Tote 2760 USD

b) SAVE: Zara Leather City Bag 180 USD

Of course I need some really nice sweaters and knitwear...

a). SPLURGE way 1: Kenzo Logo Print Sweater 520 USD

a). SPLURGE way 2 (just kidding this time) Zara Mohair Sweater 50 USD

and Zara Square Cut Cable Knit Sweater 100 USD


SAVE: H&M Sweater 30 USD

H&M Knitted Jumper 45 USD

H&M Polo Neck Jumper 100 USD

Then of course I need new pairs of jeans and leggings:

a). SPLURGE: True Religion Skinny Jeans 900 USD

b). SAVE: Zara Dark Washed Jeans 100 USD

a). SPLURGE: Milly Leather Leggings Black 1000 USD

b). SAVE: H&M Faux Leather Leggings 20 USD

Beanies are so in and I love them so much so I might need 2 or 3 pcs. in different colors:

MSBHV Beanie 30 USD

Zara Knitted Black Hat 10 USD

ASOS - Barts Claire Faux Fur Beanie 65 USD

So this is Part 1 of my checklist, will be back soon with part 2 which includes my other accessories and cosmetics wish list.
