Casual Friday Style

Hello everyone,

Casual Friday Style varies from an office to an office, and from a person to a person. For some it means denim, for others it means coated denim. Since I have not been able to find a pair of leather pants that is affordable and looks good, I think that coated denim is the second best option. I personally find that Guess jeans are some of the best fitting and best looking jeans. The last couple of pairs I bought from Guess have lasted for a long time (and I hope this is the case again). I already have some great ideas about pairing them but here I have paired them with Teodora B. navy blue printed blouse, white ALDO pointed-toe shoes, and Luisa Spagnoli quilted jacket. The jacket is a present from my mom on my last trip to Bulgaria and is so much more precious to me because of that 🙂

How would you pair dark blue coated jeans?

xoxo, Teodora

Crossover Top in Black and White

Hello everyone,

I hope you enjoy crossover tops as much as I do. Wendy with Wendy’s Lookbook inspired me to look for an option that can easily transition from work to play. I think that the more fitted, classic style crossover tops are flattering for every woman while the more recent draped crossover tops prove to be a very versatile piece. They look great paired with jeans or black skinny pants, or tucked in a pencil skirt for a dressier, more professional look. Would you wear one?

Burgundy Peplum Dress

Hello everyone,

There is no surprise that I really enjoy the movie Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy. Ron and I both share a deep love for cheesy jokes and for the color burgundy. When that rich, vivid hue meets a beautifully structured dress, I am happy. I wore this dress for a date night with my boo (he loves my endearing names) but it can easily be styled up or down for the appropriate office environment.

What are some of the best colors to pair with burgundy? I found this great article explaining how to use the color wheel to pair colors based on monochromatic, complimentary, analogous, and triadic combinations. Here are some of the colors I think will look great with burgundy for fall based on that theory (in addition to what I have on the pictures): navy, orangered, mustard, forest green. How would you pair?

When an outfit comes together…

Hello everyone and Happy Monday Morning!

Beautiful photography is essential for an online clothing business. It has been one of the greatest challenges I have faced in owning the online store. I had to make a decision if I want to outsource that piece of the business and to what extent. Since styling is something I truly enjoy, outsourcing the whole process was out of the question. There are many people involved in a photoshoot and the opportunity for redoing the photos are pretty slim, so I always feel anxious if the photos will turn out the way I want them. I was excited to see that our latest photoshoot with the beautiful model Melissa was a success. What do you think? Would you wear this outfit to work?

Fall fashion in navy colors

Hello everyone,

Beautiful and sweet Tani with Bohemian Vanity made me think about my favorite season. Is it summer? Is it fall? I would probably say it depends on the country. In my native land of Bulgaria, it is summer, and at my current location (Atlanta, GA), it is fall. I think these pictures represent best what I love about fall : the colors, the indirect sunlight, the muted tones of fashion, and the fresh air (you can picture that:). This is my favorite office look of the moment:
