How to buy Vintage

Hello All,

 

So sorry for the lack of posting, I have been on holidays and just got back.. But when I was away, a  Vintage store Geelong Vintage Market was down the road from my hotel and since then was inspired to do a how to check list kinda post for you all: I purely love vintage as 99% of the time, the quality is much better. Whether it be jewls, bags, shoes or clothing.  They just don’t make it like they use to.

Now, if you checked my Instagram: Follow me I had a good few options which had made the decision hard than ever. I didn’t have much money on me which had made it harder.

Anyway thought i’d give you some tips on how I bought my goodies, these have helped me: (Note: these tips help generally when shopping, not just for vintage)

 

1) What’s your favourite Era of vintage? Check out the store first to get a good feel what they sell.   My favourite era is from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. .

2) Are you checking out something in particular? I.e bag, jewls, clothes etc – make sure you know what you want to buy as this will make your decision making alot easier.

3) Know what works for you.

4) The Hype of getting vintage can be overwhelming, so  I’d recommend getting somethng you can honestly wear over and over again. Try finding your own classic. Like for me, I am not a fan of the gold these days but somehow vintage gold looks so much better quality.

Now, the options at the Geelong Vintage market were endless and I could’ve been real bad and bought the whole store but lucky for me, I have self control  and was able to walk away with some good finds.

 

Hopefully everyone has had a beautiful start to 2017.

 

P.s This is 1 of the looks I’ve styled as of apart of the launch of my new Category named “My classics”.  This category is dedicated to Classic pieces in your wardrobe that every fashionista needs.. Anyway this is look 1, so stay tuned for the rest <3.

How to : Pearl Choker

Hey all,

 

If you noticed I posted on Insta the other weekend ( check Chicgeek85 / OOTN ) I had did a look for my cousin’s pre wedding party. I wore a simple blush skirt with off the shoulder top and my vintage pearl necklaces with my Chanel brooch.So many people complimented on my necklace but in fact, they were 2 pearl necklaces and a brooch.  It’s super easy and here we go:

** Please note, I’ve used my wrist as an example of a neck*

 

 

Step 1: I grabbed 2 necklaces (1 vintage and 1 fake) pearl necklaces in order to gain a layers effect.

Step 2:  Wrap around your neck until comfortable.

Step 3: Grab your brooch and clip it over your necklace like so.

Step 4: And voile!

Note: I’d wear this with something open neck like off the shoulder top that  I got from Boohoo a while ago, just so I could show it off. Something timeless, chic, classic and elegant but still on trend. (Just refer to my outfit as mentioned earlier)

 

 

Hope everyone had a beautiful new years and I look forward to working with you all in 2017.

Thank you so much for your support. 🙂

 

Take care xx

 

The Peach Box: Collab

Hey all,

 

Jewls;  a classic, timeless way to update, dress up, elevate and make an outfit look extra elegant in simple ways. Being the European that I am ( Albanian / Turkish background ) , jewls have been in our culture for a long time. So long that, if you were newlyweds the bride was given ropes of gold ..

Being the modern stylish woman that I am, I am not a real fan of so much gold as what they gave to the brides but more into pearls,  silver, rose gold, diamonds and last but not least costume jewelry.

 

Ok, we all should know that we don’t need to spend alot of money to have some decent jewelry or make a beautiful timeless outfit, which is why it was a great opportunity to work with The Peach box.

I picked these 2 items as I find they have a timeless and elegant feature that we all know I love.

 

 

On another note, just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas x

 

 

This post was in collaboration with The Peach Box. These items were gifted to me but have no influence on me whatsoever.

 

Xx

Happy Socks

I am the type of person that has NEVER EVER won a competition. EVER EVER.. The only competition I’ve ever worn was getting my free coffee from my coffee card . But when I suscribed to Cocktail Revolution  website, I didn’t expect to win a competition for a pack of Happy Socks and Jocks.

 

I decided to do a shoot with a pair of heels and some socks. Something a bit different to add to your outfit. I was wearing this with a simple LBD.

 

You should probably know by now, I am all about that unique style

 

Please note: these were one of the pair, that I won in a competition.

 

 

Take care all

Colour 101

Heya!

Colour; now we know my colour dictionary is not exactly big. I keep my colours pretty minimal day to day basis but for the past few years,  I started adding “colour” to my styling just to keep my all black outfit alive.

It’s done a world of good I found  and also it gave me a chance to get creative and find colours that I can possibly like.

Also just want to talk about these colbolt blue heels.  As colbolt blue is a very “on trend” colour I bought these heels from BIG W for a cheap price that I think anyone can agree with.  But also they’re silky so they looked evening to me which I think is great and has made it look timeless & oh that bow 😍

Down below is an example of how i would style these babies. P.s I’m also all about that colour block.

 

 

Enjoy 😚20161101_08441120161101_08420120161101_084617

 

The Autumn Feels

Now we all know I love the colour red but what I love about Autumn is the deeper red like my flatlay here. Just so natural in colour and something that will stay throughout the years. From your clutch to your lipstick to the bottoms of your stiletto’s, this is the colour you need to get

Love Jenet xx

Nails

If you follow my Instagram, you would know I have a thing for nails. I am a firm believer, of a girl needs a good manicure, or claw or almond.  There are so many types out there but any kind is a good kind.

Why do I love getting my nails done? Well nails to me is what make up is to makeup bloggers. I am a kind of wog that talks with her hands as well as I work in the corporate world hence why they’re done.

Coach & Moschino

So I decided to clean out my room this weekend to see what treasures I could find.

Ended up finding this Coach Clutch and decided to wear this as my all go to bag to throw stuff in. It may look little but it does carry enough.  You know the saying , the bigger the bag the more stuff you throw in it.

I love the color I picked when I bought it. Classic and Chic.

The colour combination with the phone cover sets it off well.

What did everyone else do on the weekend?

Style Books

Style books: A Decoration or Fashion Inspiration?

Am still undecided how to use these but I definitely have these in my bookshelf on display.

I have from Audrey Hepburn Styling, to Breakfast at Tiffany’s to Chanel and Lauren Conrad.

They make a great coffee table arrangement as well.
