I am really not a watch person. I have a few, and they are beautiful and I love wearing them. Like once a month. But wearing watches on daily basis just isn’t my thing. Yet this time I am trying to change – watches are useful, especially when your phone runs out of battery and you are not in a good enough mood to engage random passer by in time related conversation.
So I was thinking what characteristics should a watch have to convert me. I had to start by considering what watch do I like the most out of the once I have? And no it is not the most expensive one. It’s actually a very old watch my grandpa used to wear all the time and then gave it to me because I loved it so much. It is retro through and through and it was manufactured in USSR way before I was born – metal strap, digital display, little battery which is being hold in place by a piece of sellotape. I love it. Hence I just have to go for a retro looking watch. Also it has to be fashionable and comfortable on the wrist.
And then I found it. My prefect Timex. First of all it is super retro. It is also very comfortable: it has a soft strap and is very light. And then it’s cool pastel colour makes it a perfect fashion accessory for this season. So here it is, yours for only £39. Who said perfection has to be expensive?

When was the last time you wore high tops and felt super fashionable? The answer is most likely to be never, until now that is. Fashion world is currently in love with high tops, but my obsession is more specific – I love high tops with hidden wedge. The look is perfect for current sport de lux trend, plus who does not like a bit of a height boost (ok, I know a lot of girls out there don’t need the extra centimeters, but with my 5’5”/166 cm it is very desirable). So whether you call them sneakers, trainers or just high tops this new shoe type is in high demand!

In my previous post I blogged about rubber becoming the IT material for this season’s bags. Yet after coming across these canvas creations I am ready to give up both leather and rubber! Thursday Friday is a cool new brand creating canvas bags and pouches with prints of It bags: Chanel, Miu Miu and Balenciaga. The best thing – your gym, picnic or second overspill bag will never have to be boring and style-less again. I just love that these bags are both a fashion and anti-fashion items: tribute and opposition to the It bags they display. And unlike the originals they won’t cost a fortune. Large canvas bag called Super Together is $90 (approximately £57), original Together is $65 (approximately £41) and pouches called Here Pochettes are $35 each (£22).
I am planning to purchase Together and use it as a bag in it’s own right – the size is perfect as it will fit all the daily essentials plus a few magazines, laptop, change of shoes and of course a Here pouch filled with must-have beauty items. For example I absolutely can not leave the house without hand cream, lip balm, eyeliner and red lipstick. Have a look at the entire range and purchase them online at www.thufri.com.
