PPZ Blue Lace Push Up Bra Review

As you ladies already probably know, I am not the busty kind of gal. I have come to terms with what nature has given me, although I must admit, nature has been really stingy when it came to giving me boobies. On the upside I can wear whatever I want with no bra and no one would notice, on the downside I can wear whatever I want with no bra and no one would notice...... 

Because of this, I've always struggled to find a bra that will fit, let alone look good. I once even tried getting one of those teddy onesies, but when I tried them on I looked like a pickle wrapped in lace, not the most sexy thing in the world. 
So, when I was contacted by PPZ to do a photo shoot with one of their lingerie pieces, I was not only skeptical that anything would fit, but I was 100% sure we will have pickle action again.

PPZ are a brand that specialized in lingerie, shape wear and yoga wear, and their website always offers big discounts, which is what actually draw me the most. I have this firm notion that spending a lot of money on underwear that makes you look like a pickle, is not a good investment. Hence my underwear,(if you have ever wondered) consists of 2 washed out bras which are breaking at the seams and one bra with Snoopy which I kept, if a chance comes up to seduce a man who's into The Peanuts series.....

So, with a heavy heart, I decided to try out PPZ's push up demi bra, and hope for the best!

The shipping took around one month to Bulgaria, which gave me some time to read some good books, reconsider my life choices, watch a whole TV series and dye  my hair blonde. The bra came around Valentine's day though, so kudos for timing!

Immediately after trying it on though, you already feel transformed into a Victoria's Secret model. The subtle little rhinestones glistening in the dark blue lace, and not to mention I have boobs....Yes, males who read this, this is what we women do, eeeeeeeeevil I tell ya!

At first it felt a little uncomfortable since I haven't worn a demi bra ever, but after a few hours the comfy feeling sinks in and it's like you're not wearing a bra....Do I hear Mel Gibson's scream in Brave Heart? FREEEEEDOOOOOM!

Overall I am very happy with the quality and style of this push up bra and I am thinking of wearing it underneath some transparent tops I have. The size matches perfectly, you have the needed support, it is comfortable and beautiful, so I would definitely recommend.

I also recently watched a Vlog where the lady was talking that having a good and well fitted bra is the foundation for your outfit. Once you have your essentials sorted, it will transpire in your upper garments as well. And after trying out this bra, I finally realize what she was saying. Wearing this makes my outfits more structured and gives a confidence boost.

So, what do you guys think, are you willing to spend some good money on quality undergarments or you would rather spend them on something more important?

Wearing Sequins to Work

Well, 14th of February is upon us and I already feel the pressure people are in, to be romantically involved and penetrated on this blissful day. I have, for as long as I can remember, despised this day mainly because in my teenage years I was always alone. At that time, we ddidn't have Lana Del Rey, so we had to sulk while listening to crappy rock songs from the 90-ties and munching on everything that has an ingridience table which might kill you just by looking at it.

I decided to steer away from Valentine's day today and focus on the more important things in life - moneyzzz, cause who needs love when you've got money!
The pay day finally came and with it, my compulsive shopping as well. I am already googling how much my kidney would cost on the black market. Maybe I should stop buying crap I don't need and focus on minimalism. Minimal food, minimal  clothes, minimal heat, minimal oxygen and after that I can cut my throat minimalistically with a minimal razor-blade....

Pink sequin skirt - H&M, Red patent boots - Zara
Despite me being broke my whole life, because I buy unicorn sweaters and sequin boots, I am still from the working class and I still spend my day mainly at the office. I even sit close to a window where I can happily see the sun go down, enveloping the room in darkness and screams of angry people shouting at other angry people, who keep turning on and off the artificial lightning!

Since I love wearing sequins and since I spend my day at the office I couldn't stay away from them even on a casual Monday-Friday week, so I decided to show you three outfits I styled for work with sequins which can be worn without having to explain to the security guy you shine bright like a diamond because a crazy girl? on her blog told you to.

When wearing sequins at the workplace we need to acknowledge three main things: 
1. Go knee low
2. Keep it clean
3. Use denim

When it comes to sequin dresses or skirts at the office it is best to keep the length below the knee, since showing off too much bare skin with sequins can be often regarded as a bad move. You can however turn this into an advantage if you use thick black tights underneath or even over the knee high boots, just remember to keep those sexy legs covered.
For the first look I opted for my pink sequin skirt I bought from a sale last year from H&M. The idea here was to keep everything else clean and not too overloaded with stuff, so I also wore a black knit sweater and my warm winter boots for coziness and finished the outfit with a light  blue fitted jacket. You can always use a plaid top, a casual crispy white shirt with a cardigan, heavy sweaters and so on, to tone down your sequins.

For the second and third outfits I used my new Zara shoes you probably already saw on Instagram,  and I styled them two very different ways.
For the first look I used denim to tone the shoes down and for the upper part of the body I chose a blue puffer jacket again from Zara, just to make the outfit even more laid back.

I wore a black nerdy t-shirt underneath with Iron Man and let me tell you, graphic tees are an awesome addition  to any sequin piece, but what gets the job done is actually the denim jeans. They incorporate this chill vibe even if you are wearing shoes dashed with plasters of sequins, so if you want to play it safe, use denim for starters. Denim button down shirts can do magic to any sequin outfit. 

For the last outfit I kept it as businessy as possible and suited up with a blazer. I have a feeling that if you give me a hot dog costume and a blazer, I can still look like a sophisticated hot dog. Think of blazers as toast and all the other pieces as just mere additions to your delicious fundamental bread.

I kept it very casual and paired the blazer with a second hand white knit turtleneck and black pants with red tights underneath, because it was freaking cold.

If you are feeling self conscious wearing sequins precisely on that day you were going to have a round table with management, then fear not! Just pair those bad boys with a blazer and move on with your life.

What do you guys think, are sequins okay for work? Would you wear something sparkly in the office?

The Versitile Gray Knit Dress

Hello marshmallows! How is your day going so far? I am on my second coffee and feeling hyped cause Friday is now closer which means payday soon, and we all know what that means - DOMINOS PIZZA! I fully realize that this is something only old and tired people would appreciate, and if there is anyone out there who feels like a snob when ordering Dominos, welcome to my world! It is full of imaginary anime characters and self doubt.

On another note our car broke down, it started smoking and my boyfriend's grandpa fixed it by shoving a stick in the problematic area. I am still waiting for the car to desintegrate again and to start spewing smoke so we can be one of those people who's car smokes and everyone on the road be hating on them....Can.... not..... wait!

Today's outfit is my attempt to reconstruct my style and concentrate on the basics. I bought this knit dress last month from Bershka and as I didn't try it on before purchasing, I now look like a damn eggplant with it! I have to say it is a bit too bulky for me, but it is an extremely versitile dress, super heavy and warm so I have been wearing it almost every day, especially when walking the dog, aka chasing him since he tends to run away from the sounds of a falling leaf or the wind blowing.

I tried to adjust the bulkiness and wore a tight and fitted denim jacket over the dress with knee high ribbed socks for maximum pleasure (insert inappropriate joke).
The white booties are thrifted and they are one of my favorite classic purchases, since they remind me of ice skating shoes. They fit the legs very well which results in a very feminine leg action.

I really like how this outfit turned out, simple, but not plain or tasteless. It still has a dash of salt and looks complete from head to toe which is what I am trying to incorporate into my style - more practical and comfortable basics with weird colorful accents. Do you guys likey?
