Low cut

 

This post in made in collaboration with tosave.com which have been kind enough to send me some of their products to test out. The first one is this dress, and I wanted to try this type of dress for so long, but I’ve always been a bit scared that the very low neckline will show too much. After trying it out I was very happy with the way it looks, it is not showing too much and I can wear it out feeling comfortable.
The best thing about Tosave.com is that all of the things they are sellingare very affordable and usually when a dress costs $6.40( that’s how cheap this dress was) you don’t really expect a decent quality product, but for what I can tell based on the products that I’ve tried I am really happy with the way they fit and the material.

6 simple ways to make your own choker -Guest post

If you haven’t bought yet a must-have of 2016 – a choker or think that you can’t afford it, here are 6

simple ways how you can make a choker by yourself.

Instruments and important things

First let’s see what we need. Every family has a big box of instruments in the closet – it’s time to check it

out.

– Pliers

– A pair of nippers

– Awl

– Scissors

– Measuring tape

– Fittings such as union collars, clasps, fastenings

– Favorite pendants or beads

– Shoe strings

– Velvet and lace ribbons

A bolo tie choker

Take a shoe string – leather or textile – of any length you wish. Cut the edges diagonally so that it will be

easier to run them into the beads. Put two similar beads on the string and tie a knot at every edge. Cut

the extra edges and the choker is ready.

You can play with different beads and colors of the thread.

A loop choker

You’re gonna need a ring or a fitting of any other shape and 2 strings. Fold each string in half, run the

string through the ring and then run the edges of the string through the loop and tie the ring. Repeat the

same with another string. And the choker is ready.

You can choose leather, macramé or textile strings and play with the color and shape of the fitting

Ribbon choker

Measure the size of your neck in circle and deduct 1 inch. Take a velvet ribbon and cut 2 pieces of

needed length. Take a ring shape fitting, run the ribbon through it and place the pliers at the edges, so

they will not open. Then place the lobster clasp on one side and adjustable chain on another. This type

of fastening will help to adjust the choker to the most comfortable size.

This choker only looks good when it sits very close to the skin without gaps.

Minimalistic choker

Take a black lace ribbon and cut the same length as we did with ribbon choker. Place the pliers on both

ends of the ribbon and then attach a lobster clasp on one side and an adjustable chain on the other. And

a delicate and very feminine choker is ready. Wear it with a black dress with V-shape neckline or with a

top without shoulder straps.

Choker with pendant

Repeat the same process as in a previous case with a single ribbon and get lobster clasp and an

adjustable chain placed on each side of it.

Then you have to attach the pendant to the ribbon. This process really depends on the pendant you

have. You might just run the ribbon through the pendant to get it settled or you might need to use some

instruments and an additional ring to place it. If the base of your choker is leather or velvet or any textile

then it’s easier to use an awl to make a hole in it and then attach the pendant to the choker.

Make sure that the pendant and the choker match in size otherwise it will not look so nice.

A thin choker with pendant

This is basically a more delicate variation of the previous choker. Repeat the same steps with the string

and place a pendant on it. To make sure that the pendant will not move left or right along the string it

might be a good idea to attach it firmly using a fitting ring and pliers.

Again remember about the size of your pendant and the choker. If the pendant is too heavy and the

string is too soft then it will not keep its shape and the whole idea will be ruined.

Of course, if you have no time to get ready for the party then you can just pick your favorite base and a

pendant, put it all together and just tie it firmly.

Ready? Now some basic rules of wearing a choker

Chokers came back to us from early 90-s so the style of 90-s is a perfect background for this accessory. It

goes well with cotton tops and jeans and with slip dresses. Dresses without shoulder straps are also fine,

as well as blouses.

Choker are very universal accessories and they really look great with cut-offs, miniskirts and with

evening dresses as a trendy alternative to diamonds.

You can also combine wide ribbon chokers with thin string chokers to see where it goes.

All about it

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9I’m gonna keep this short because I’m in a hurry, but I still wanna post this look before I go. I’ve worn this outfit two days in a row, which for me says how much I’ve enjoyed this look, because I’m not the type of person that does that( I’m getting bored of wearing the same clothes really easily). What I find strange about liking this outfit is that I used to hate wearing socks like that, every time I saw someone wearing it I was “what is wrong with that person?!” and now I’m all about that life.Please let me know in the comments what are your thoughts about it.

Missing the witch

1 2 4 5 6 01collage

Lately I’ve found myself wearing this kind of punk-rock style a lot, because here in Bucharest has been really cold on the past few days and even if I miss my witchy style a lot I’m not willing to freeze(yet) and wearing a hat has been a real challenge with the wind that has been going on, but I do enjoy this kind of outfit and even though the witch it is here waiting to make here presence I find this style a bit more comfortable to wear on a crazy day( because I had my share of crazy days lately). Currently I’m on a hunt for some boots that are a bit edgy and with a bit of heel and witchy, but comfortable at the same time and if it is possible not that expensive. I know, I want a lot of things :)), but if some of you know a place where I can find some, please let me know.

Yet another striped outfit

     And yet another striped outfit. I don’t know if you got bored of my stripes( I hope not) because I certainly am not. At this point I’m trying to get advantage of the last few warmer days so I’m wearing skirts and dresses almost everyday. I’ve wanted a skirt like this for ages, because I’ve accumulated a lot of skirts lately, but I didn’t had a simple black mini skirt. At this moment I’m trying to find more printed skirts, preferably some midi ones, so if you know a website where I can find some cute ones please let me know.

hunting for plaid

I know that jacket it is way too big on me, but have you ever had one of those days when you just don’t wanna feel anything tight on you? well that was one of those days for me and my mom’s leather jacket was just the thing. Since I can remember I’ve been really into plaid skirts and since I’m on a plaid loving period I’ve been on a hunt for a skirt and I found this one on a thrift store. Now I really want a green and black one really bad and I hope I’ll find a midi one.
I know I’m wearing yet again these shoes, but I’m sooo in love with them and I feel I can wear them with almost everything.

Astrology scarf

Another thing I absolutely love about autumn is that I finally can wear scarves. I bought this black scarf with astrological signs a while ago from H&M, but just now I’ve had the chance to wear it. I don’t know what happened to me, but lately I really enjoy wearing skirts or dresses and I’ve always been the jeans type of girl. Other then that I’m still in my witchy state of mind and black clothes. Let me know what are your thoughts about this style or black outfits in general.

90’s throwback

Lately I found myself going towards the 90’s style and music, so whenever I’m thinking about grunge fashion the first things that are coming to my mind are plaid, chokers and braids. This outfit it is something that I would wear on a day when I don’t really have time to put together something more elaborate or don’t wanna feel my clothes that much and I need something loose. To add just a lil bit of spice to this look I choose to wear my favorite pair of shoes( I just cannot stop myself from being amazed with how comfortable they are). I believe that at some point I posted an outfit similar to this one, but I’m really enjoying this 90’s vibe.
Being the beginning of october means university have started and my schedule is crazy for the moment( I really need a 48 hours day), but I well try to keep up with everything.
