Annual visit

 Today the owner of our flat stopped by for an annual visit plus to sign a new lease for half a year. I only wanted for half a year as I am currently looking over offers for flats/houses to buy sometime in the near future. Now, the idea of getting a mortgage is really scary but I would love to have a house of my own. Or a flat. But a house would be waaaaaay better :) I'm definitely a house chick.

For the meeting a wore a skirt that I wear like all the time nowadays. It's a thrift find and was originally from H&M (and it had a peplum at the top but I cut that off). The sweater is from JCrew. The top is Zara and was bought during the sales. I really like the print:
 As for the shoes, well, they're a pair of H&M quilted flats and to be honest I only wore them indoors. When I went walking the pig I had on a pair of warm boots. There's too much snow for flats. I'm currently curled up in bed because after the flat owner left I started to feel poorly and although I was supposed to go to school (would have been heading out in twenty minutes), I'm staying home. I sure hope I'll feel better tomorrow. But for now, goodnight (afternoon).

Oysters and Love

 Yesterday the boy & I went to celebrate our 2 and a half year anni and we went to Zdenek's Oyster Bar in the Prague center. I am a HUGE fan of sea food, love it love it love it, so it was a special night for me. I wish I could turn back time and repeat that night all over again. It was SO GOOD. I was supposed to go to a bday party afterwards but was so stuffed that we decided to go home and watch movies instead...
 I realize I haven't been posting outfit posts here in a while. It's because winter lighting is REALLY horrible and results in crap pictures. Below is an outfit I wore some two weeks ago. Stradivarius wooden wedges. Mango jeans. H&M coat. Stradivarius bag. Elle hat. Rome gloves. It's really hard to keep cozy and warm AND still look stylish. When the temp gets really low and I have to travel by trams and all, I have no use for heels. But when I'm just off to the pub that's down the street - well, that's a different story. They must think I'm nuts...

Shoe storage, a new semester and whatnot

 If you've read this blog before, you'll know I have a passion for shoes. Having this hobby means I like to collect shoes. Now, my collection is definitely not the biggest or most impressive but I love the shoes I have and also love getting new shoes. I currently have about 340 pairs. And a tiny tiny rented apartment. This leads to a bit of a problem when it comes to shoe storage. hence the picture above (*I also have some shoes stored under the bed). It's not the best solution but given my circumstances, I think it's not so bad. However, my lack of space means that I've been buying less and less shoes as I have literally no place to put them...
 An outfit I wore last week to work. Was very inspired by Jane Bennet from The Lizzie Bennet Diaries when it came to the hair style. (Sweater is from Tezenis and dress is H&M)
I'm on my way to school in a little bit and today is the start of a new semester (still have so so SO much to get done from the last one, ops) but I just had to show you this relaxed piggy. I envy him. (I wish I could stay in bed too!) Well, here's to a great Monday & wish me luck in getting a pass from an essay I'm handing in today. Xo, MsV.

Post-uni Shopping Day

 As I may have mentioned before, I had an exam yesterday. (Still don't know the results which is infuriating!) And because my uni days haven't been exactly going too smoothly, I decided to treat myself to some post-uni shopping. Hurray!

 I stopped by a Zara store (a different - a furtheraway one - than I usually go to) and bought these two pairs of shoes. The first pair - a cutesy pair of flats with an embroidered mustache - was a tough decision whether to get them or not. They were the last pair - and in my size - and cost only 300 crowns. So I bought them because I was afraid if I hadn't I would regret it. On to the second pair: a lovely pair of wedges. I was thinking about getting them about two weeks ago but then thought they were still too expensive and that I would wait and risk it and of course, they disappeared from my Zara shop (my meaning the closest to my flat). I was sad and thought I'd never get them. But - ha! - they had them over at the Chodov shopping mall and waaaay cheaper too. Good thing I waited!

 Right after my exam and before I went to Zara, I stopped by one of my favorite thrift shops and thought I'd just take a look. I was very lucky and scored not one but two very lovely dresses. I think in a way I was inspired by my new favorite vlog: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries. I am in love/awe of Jane. She always has such beautiful dresses with the little bows and everything. The two dresses I bought kinda reminded me of her. For the first dress (which is by Dunnes btw) it had to be the button detailing on the back of the dress. Really awesome right?

For the second dress it was the print.I first though it was mushrooms but its probably just circles. It doesn't matter because whatever it is, it's pretty darn cute.

Last but not least I stopped by over at Sephora and bought the Lady Gaga perfume Fame. I have wanted it for ages and now it was on a special Valentine's Day (oh wow, is it already February?!) sale. So I was pretty happy on my way home with all my lute but then I came home and what awaited me? Bloody pig-monster somehow got in the fridge (it has a safety belt on it) and ate everything and made a huge huge huge mess. So, yeah, that kinda sucked. Now I'm not speaking to Dracul and am seriously thinking about a possible solution. He's bored at home and needs more space and I think he will be an outdoor pig soon. But how to solve that??? I really don't know what to do. Something will have to change..
