One More Gift Package



pic: wabisabi-style

Use recycled paper, turn the paper over or use like it is with all texts and stamps,
maybe put more stamps and glue some paper labels.
Use hemp or paper yarn.
If you  have time, make small hearts using old fabric or felt,
put some wadding in and sew the end of the yarns. 
Little pom poms made of wool yarn are also beautiful decoration end to ham yarn.
Beautiful Package that has taken lot of your time
tells the recipient how important she or he is to you.

Deck The Hall ...


I love Christmas and do the decoration inside and outside of the house.
I begin to make plans  already in the beginning of November.
Many of decorations have been in the family for years, and the family members
expect to see then year after year.
It is the tradition that I gladly take care. but every year I find something
new and special to renew the Christmas. 
This year I found these lovely in a way simple and vintage look decors from TOAST.

Magic Christmas Red


For me the Red has always been the color of Christmas.
This season of darkness is gratifying to see people dressed in cheerful Red
and visit homes decorated with this Christmas color.
Red is a color that combines wonderfully the warmth and the joy of Christmas.

In the evening, in blue moment, candle light is the magic that wakes the Red
to create the right, warm Christmas atmosphere. 
For Christmas decorations I mostly use the combination of red and snow white
with a hint of gold. And of course, a lot of candles.
Here some joyful Reds for gifts, to wear, to decorate and live with.

Christmas envelope


Sometimes I have very small gifts or may I say thin.
They usually are poems or special few lines of words
that I want someone to have for the road to the next year.
And sometimes it is a bill
that I slip to this beautiful self-made-envelope,
because some youngsters want to decide by them selves what to have for a gift.
This envelope is one of my favorites!

Christmas Box


It is almost only month to Christmas, it time to start make beautiful present to our Love Ones.
I have always been more interested to make lovely packages than what´s inside.
Now before Christmas I will introduce to you some of my most beautiful and most easiest way to make my Christmas presents.
This first one is very easy to do with your printer. Take little heavier paper and fill the form with color or pattern you like and print it out. Cut and tie with cute ribbon.

Beanie Babe

I welcome the fashion that brings back once again Beanies and especially Pom Pom Beanies.
Gloomy winter time needs all the whimsy, so we manage over it, to the next warm summer.
I can assure you that the day begins with a smile when you put your head a bobble hat.
Above all, Beanie warms on cold and windy winter weather, it prevents from getting flu,
and it is now the most fashionable accessory. 

In Christmas time it is acceptable and even recommended to wear 
I did a study where to find the coolest hats.
Here are the results:

In Christmas time it is acceptable and even recommended to wear colorful,
funny pom pom beanie to show merry Christmas Spirit!

It is worth noting that many of the well-known, classic fashion houses have beanies in winter collections.
Styles and color more subdued and so suitable for more mature.

Cuddly additional accessory all year round, especially in "bad hair day".
And what a superb Christmas Gift idea!

If you are once and for all smitten to Pom Poms, here is funny and cozy way to keep them close!
You find these lovely pillows from Yellow Velvet,  and if you have time these are easy to do for example for a gift.

Seeing Dots ...


Yes, polka dots are "spotted" every where.
In New York, Paris, London, Milan and not only in the fashion main cities
but I mean EVERY WHERE.
I think, this is pattern that you either love it or hate it.
It is almost impossible to be neutral with it.
I like it, but only when its white dots on black.
It´s not only clothes that dots have taken over.
How about to live surrounded with polka dot wallpapers or rest on dotted sofa?
No, it´s not too much, for a short while.

I really love this picture !






Here´s my collection of some juicy dots!





Polka dots have been here for ever.
Sometimes pattern have been sign of totally bad taste
and then next season it´s  the most fashionable thing.






And it´s not going to end to this season.
Dots are even getting better to next Spring 2013. 
Here the most beautiful samples, designer Adelina Ivan, Berlin.









This is great idea: polka dot stickers to your bike! Why not decorate the car?





Polka Dots and home decoration is the endless story. Just take a pick.

















Fun it is! Dots make you smile.





And last but not least, my favorite from Anthropologie:

Opulent Brocade


Don´t be afraid this gorgeous, dazzling trend witch drive away winter blues.
Brocade is definitely trend that everyone can dip into.
It´s all about luxury decadence, decoration and opulence.
And how to wear this trend: let the main piece be the thing and keep rest of outfit quite minimalist. 
Wear brocade pieces with neutral items to reach the most effect look.
Or make it rock! Skinny brocade jeans or trousers and brocade jacket as Mick Jagger used to wear, imposing jewelry   and high heels.

Flower Power


Although it´s Autumn and all the summer flowers have wilt away,
there is the new wave of Autumn flowers that have captured the fashion world.
Ideas evolve from worlds of folklore, baroque, hippie times and furnishing materials.
Designers have worked with flowers many fabulous  methods. They have filled collections with printed, woven, appliqued and embroidered flowers.
We see flowers in all sizes  from giant big to minimal small.
Color are more softer and toned than during the summer season.
I picked best samples of the flower trends.

and really trendy together most functional fashion.

Winter is coming and Marni has again many great, quality and colorful choices to dress.
I spend a lot of time in the open air and here is My Style Marni for outside life.


Aptly boyish Capri length Runway denim pants  and Knit trouser socks are great together
and splendid pair to footwear are Angle Boots in calfskin
To the top I´ll dress extra light Jersey T-shirt and to complete outfit warm,
lovely way old fashion Wool and cashmere-blend cardigan.
The Fox & leather & rib knit Mittens with same fur than in Bomber Jacket,
can warm up my hands.
Sporty egg shaped Bomber Jacket with removable fur collar is warm and useful in any weather. 
I just crave the Marni´s Runway Hat in lapin felt it is so me
and to finalize I need the Double bridge sunglasses!
