Style Update

Tereza Šťastná

IMG_7354.jpg

You might want to know about my current status on sustainable fashion since I haven’t posted anything that I would make by myself for the last year.

To be honest, I was a bad girl and bought quite a lot of things. At first, I gained some weight in the past years so some of my clothes hardly fit plus my taste in clothes has changed since my early 20s. Because I work in the corporate world now, I cannot wear so many sporty clothes anymore and honestly, I feel more confident in more “women” clothes. It might be something about accentuating my curves.

But when I went to the stores, I always aimed for something more long-term style-wise in neutral colors or colors that really fit me. Pretty much light blue and black dresses, overalls, white shirt dress etc. Things that will not go out of style anytime soon. Perfect example is this dress made from certified organic cotton. The other goal was to find clothes that are very well made. COS is the perfect store for that. Most of their things is of a high quality, natural materials.

Another great source of clothes are second hands a.k.a. thrift stores. I discovered amazing online one, where I was able to find luxury brands for the break of the price and sometimes the clothes would have a pricetag.

So, yes, I changed pretty much my whole wardrobe which is now full of great materials, fitting clothes and flattering colors but they also fit my current style and age.

White Kimono

Tereza Šťastná

I spent last Sunday at my studio doing some photoshoots, reading and working on blog stuff. 

But I also gotta admit one fail, I bought jeans. You know I talk a lot about how I want to present only my handmade wardrobe and I stand behind that but I woudn't be able to make my own jeans quite yet because they are hard to make and my sewing machine is not quite strong enough fro denim. And I don't have €250 to have them designed. 

 So I somehow told myself it is OK. I calm myself down with shopping too much clothes we don't wear is the real problem here and that's the reason for cheap labor and land polution. The only things I really buy in the store are organic cotton basic tees, underwear and jeans. All of these I wear constantly so my cost-per-wear is vey low. And yes, that's exactly how I clean my soul. 

 Well, my Saturday's jeans survived to be worn all weekends and when I was looking for a top, I realized, I haven't posted my white kimono yet. It's a piece that I made approx. 3 years ago and it shows it was a really great move because such a simple kimono is a classic. I made it in one afternoon and then painted with delicate lines so it looks a little like modern porcelain. Pattern is from BurdaStyle magazine 06/2011 and you can find it online here.

And how about you? Do you wear kimonos? Have you ever tried to make your own or do you know some nice pattern or DIY? Let me know in the comments section below. .

Bright brick culottes

Tereza Šťastná

Remember the article about sewing culottes I posted about couple months ago? I got inspired by it and decided to make culottes on my own. 

 I went for an easy pattern model #108 from Burda magazine 12/2014 that had elastic waistband (I am not very good with sewing flies) and I really loved the design with the curved bottom fold and how the front part just wraps around the back like a leaf. 

I am pretty happy with the result even though I think I made it two sizes bigger than it actually should be and I have a lot of gathering on the waist making my hips little bit wider. But other than that I think they look pretty fly.

#OOTD - White Cotton Shirt

Tereza Šťastná

There is nothing that beats the ultimate style icon - White cotton shirt.

I was so thrilled when I discovered this baby at Michael Kors on 70% off and got even 20% on top of that. Call me lucky. It is my name after all. 

Just so you know, I am not a big spender when it comes to fashion, I really like to make things myself, but when I see high quality timeless piece that I will wear probably all the time and for a great price on top of that, it is simply too good to pass.

Plus it will be a great addition into my capsule wardrobe, that I am in process of creating. So, Michael Kors shirt, welcome to the family!
