1 - Fidji // 2 - No brand

A total of 8€, two for the first pair and six for the second. Who said you have to spend lots of money on leather boots? Clearly that's a myth! 
As a huge fan of flea markets and second-hand shops, I've come to realize that you can find great quality products, from a time when resistance and durability really did matter. Sometimes I think people don't know what they're selling and the real value of the product; some prices are surreal, don't you think?

What's your opinion on this way of shopping?

Biker Jacket - from a store in Camden (don't remember the name) // Dress - Next

Feeling like I'm going back to my 10th grade, when I bought this biker jacket in Camden and felt badass as f*ck. I remember wearing it everyday until it started breaking at the seams and I had to fix it. In the meantime my style suffered some alterations, therefore my once favorite jacket remained still in my wardrobe for a while. 
Two weeks ago I finally got the courage to pair it with one of my autumn must-haves: a black, tight dress. Turned out to be a huge success and appear in some photos for my friends' school project.
Sometimes recovering some of your old clothes can be even better and more refreshing than buying new ones!

Coat - Zara // Bomber - Next // T-Shirt - Primark // Trousers - H&M // Chelsea Boots - Fidji (Thrifted)

First post since I've changed my header (yeah, I have been a really bad blogger, because my schedule is as tight as it can be and school work haunts me. Bah.) Meanwhile I've been running around in my new stuff, such as my super comfy boots for 2 euros, my super warm coat from Zara and last but not least, my silky, soft bomber. 
Now let me just do some advertisement for my recent account at Cargo Collective and, finally, wish you all a fantastic week!

Melitta Baumeister is a german fashion designer based in New York City, who presented her graduation collection at NYFW. Parsons just launched a future star, because unlike other fashion designers in the making, Melitta has the artistic sensitivity to merge different areas. Sculpture, architecture, objects, fashion and installation coexist in the same minimalistic atmosphere, where white is enough to transport us to the hellenic period. Nonetheless she applies and develops innovative techniques, maintaining her solid concept all the way through.

// Applying techniques from sculpture, architecture, and fine art, materiality becomes the conceptual core of my process. Casting a garment in one continuous layer of silicone questions conventional methods, which focuses on the development of the garment. This specific technique entails a shift of shape-defining factors. Shape is no longer determined through the interplay of fabric and pattern, but by the mold into which it is cast. The mold becomes the blueprint of a form and captures the essence of a garment without itself being the thing it emulates. The mold with its capability for endless repetition, then becomes a metaphor for the repetitiveness of the fashion industry itself. - M.B.

Visceral and intricate photographs fascinate me, the emotional depth and sickness we can bring to them is beyond real. Therefore, no one better than Xana to capture the density of one's soul and the desperation of one's body to express a secret suffering. Bones aching to rip my skin apart. My darkest hour and my relief. Black and white poetry in a language more universal than words. 

//To take photographs means to recognize-simultaneously and within a fraction of a second-both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one’s head, one’s eye and one’s heart on the same axis. - Henri Cartier-Bresson

Bomber Jacket - Ted Baker // Sweater - Thrifted // Pinstriped Trousers - Zara // Sneakers - Nike Free Run

Fall is finally here and I've already done some damage today, at our local Flea Market (more on that later). Meanwhile I'm wearing my same old uniform, spicing it up a bit by adding some pinstripes. 
Also, I must explain why I haven't been posting more often, simply because college has started, I moved to my grandparents and am now adapting to my new routine. Btw. my first work is to design two S/S outfits (men- or womenswear) and which better concept than sports/graphic? Lucky me!

Backpack - Eastpak // Dress - Zara // Sneakers - Nike Free Run 5.0

We can say this outfit pays homage to the amazing work of Francisco Costa as creative director for Calvin Klein - 10 years of pure genius. Nevertheless this was the little white dress I wore to my disastrous prom and the one I would love to wear without being worried about getting it dirty. As for this time I paired it with some sneakers and a black backpack, creating a contrast of styles, casual yet sophisticated. No one said I couldn't wear my prom dress with some Nikes and an Eastpak, right? 


Hi, my name is Filipa. I'm a 18 year old girl passionate about fashion and arts, therefore I'm anxious to share with you my style and taste.
