OH DEAR 2017, WHAT’S UP?

gambitsky

Looking back on 2016, it was obviously a hard year for all involved. So many insane and sad things happened it was almost hard to remember the good. As I was looking through my camera roll last night, I realized that so much has happened that I haven’t even appreciated. I can’t believe how much I have grown this year as a person. There are so many things that I still need to work on, but I wanted to just write this blog post to take a moment to reflect and also see what I want to improve on during this beautiful new year that is 2017 🙂 .

A huge thing that happened in 2016 was moving into my own apartment. I remember it like it was yesterday … all those mixed feelings at that time.  The first time at my apartment I only had a totally new blanket my mom gave me, a pillow, a laptop, and  random plants everywhere in my tiny new space that I today call home.  I sent my mom photos of my home when i was done putting everything on place; letting her see that I was ok and so was my home.
Whenever I  see those pictures is a tug at my heart that just reminds me of how lucky I am and how much things can grow and be created. Now my apartment is my literal sanctuary. I don’t even think I would change anything about it, which is huge for me to say since I am always fussing around with styling and interior.

Another thing that I am just so happy about is my blog and how I really know what my style is now–what I love to photograph, what kind of mood I want to capture, what clothes I actually like, what I want my future career to be. I have experimented with all types of styles in the past, and if you scroll back into the archives of my blog (please don’t) you can see how my style has evolved every year. I feel like now I truly know what I like and what I don’t like; something I have been working on for so long. Obviously my style will continue to change, but at least I feel like I have a really good grip on it now.

When it comes to love, well… It hasn’t been the year for it. I have been focusing on myself, learning how to love myself, my body and the people who really care about me.  To be able to meet someone and let it in into my life has been hard because I’ve been scared of sharing my feelings with a guy; which is OK, i just need to take my time… I’m not stressing about it and you shouldn’t either, i guess that the cliche phrase is true.. LOVE comes when you least expect it.
 All I know is every day I work more and more into loving myself. I seriously didn’t think that was possible after hitting rock bottom with my eating disorders.

I also want to thank you guys for supporting me SO much. I would be nowhere if it wasn’t for you all. You make my heart full and you make my dreams literally come true. It is such a pleasure to talk with you guys, to give advice here & snapchat , making blog posts that you guys like and are helpful to you. That is why I do all of this, just because I want to be able to make a little difference in this hectic world. All I want to do is to make others happy or just feel a certain mood and to help. Thank you again just to those who have been with me since the beginning or have just started following me! It has been such a wonderful journey.

I HONESTLY & GENUINELY  LOVE YOU.

STATEMENT VELVET JACKET.

This little outfit has been waiting for its turn for a while, mainly due to the bad weather all these days in Oslo. Luckily the sun came up the whole morning which seemed to be the perfect time to rock it.

Getting to throw on my favorite  jackets during the winter months is the easiest way to ramp up any outfit on the go. It is the perfect transition piece and easy to layer with other items, like this velvet jacket from Zaful.
The versatility is key and with this kind of jacket as the statement piece; minimalism with other pieces is a priority. The jacket easily dresses up or down a casual. Like for example a pair of trousers and white sneakers.

Fully Dressed.

Good morning and happy almost weekend, everyone!

I fell in love with this dreamy dress the moment I saw it! I think what makes it so special for me is the beautiful combination of the wonderful green color, the black details and a classically elegant shape! Feminine and fun yet so very polished and sophisticated! Basically, everything I could hope for in a dress and more!

Adding colors and different materials into my closet is a main goal this year.
Personally the Party season ain’t over; i have several birthday parties these upcoming weeks.

You guys already know about the love i have for leather jackets; specially this one that I’m using with this outfit. It has been following my fashion journey since the start.
What i love about this jacket is all the details and zippers; enough to make the outfit a little bit more rough and edgy.

Since this beautiful dress takes enough attention, I wanted to work my way around it. Using statement accessories is the perfect way to make your party outfit stand out in a delicate and edgy way.

PLAY WITH COLORS.

Lately, I started to notice that my body feels the affect of the stress it has gone through during the past few weeks. My hair is falling, my skin is dry, my eyes are red most of the time and i have pain in my back… Is this how it feels to be old? Jesus. If we could only be kids once again.
Isn’t a little nice to wear a little bit of pink & Orange? Fun colors to work with even though we are kind of scared to use them during the winter since we loose that fab tan from the summer. These colors are extremely easy to style if most of your clothes during the winter are black just like mine.

I actually started with one piece and decided I wanted to build my look around it. It all started with the black jumpsuit that is anything but simple. When I saw this pink winter coat i already knew i needed to have it . It has this very contemporary feminine quality to it, with the fitting and color. It is intricate without being to complicated and really radiates this casual sophistication that is both romantic and edgy.

To make it a little more special, I paired it with this vibrant orange sweater that really pops, but doesn’t draw your attention away from the color of the gorgeous winter coat. To accessorize, I carried around a full detailed pink purse. The color palette of this outfit has the perfect amount of brightness. Since my clothing options are usually based on my mood on that particular day, imagine how happy I was feeling this particular day.

The Maxi Dress.

gambitskygambitsky

I don’t normally wear maxi dresses; just because of the fact that i’m really short and i was afraid of looking even more short wearing one.
I happen to come across something particularly special like this sexy yet so sophisticated and delicate dress for example, I don’t mind making an exception! Perfect in every possible way, I really can’t decide what it is that I love most about it, the print, the split or how it delicate hits the floor.

Perhaps, it’s the combination of all of the above, but whatever it is, I am completely and utterly obsessed with it at the moment!

Since it’s xmas soon; i decided to pair the dress with a pair of fully detailed earrings  that makes the whole outfit stand out a bit more; also red lips and a pair of heels to complete the  look.

Be Somebody.

First of all i need to apologize from being away from my blog for such a long while. I have been dealing with a lot of struggles in my life for the moment that have been taking all the positive energy from my heart & Soul. I felt that i did wanted to let my thoughts out here  since this blog is where i feel i can put on my thoughts without getting judge or mistreated in any way.

Life is a gift of god. It is beautiful yet unpredictable. If at times you have enjoyed life to its fullest there will also be times when you are let down. We all go through hard times. No matter however satisfied you are, everyone goes through the most difficult situations of life. Life is not a bed of roses. The difficult situations play the role of thorns in it. There comes a time on life when you are a little blue. One or the other rough situation occurs in your life which leaves you shattered with a heavy heart. You are left hopeless. Most difficult situations of life may be different according to different people. Some may get affected by one and some by the other. These situations that you go through are just a test of your patience. You need to act strong. Therefore, stay calm and let go. Don’t give up.

Making an attempt to do something and getting a negative response comes as a failure in life. It is a state or condition wherein a certain objective is not met. Dealing with a failure is a tough situation. Facing failures and learning from them is the right thing to do but seldom are people able to do that.

Losing in any kind of way is difficult; all from Job, relationship, friendship and future plans is where we have to be less hard on ourselves in order to jump into a new adventure of our lives. If one of them fails; it’s normal and we should see it as a lesson for the future.

We need to surround ourselves with people we love; also make a safe space where you can be totally yourself.  This way you’ll be able to become stronger and face life in other way (This takes time). You need to muster a lot of courage and stand for yourself in such cases in order to go through to the situation.

Dealing with a bad situation can be a lot like dealing with grief, and people often go through the same stages: shock and denial, pain and guilt, anger and bargaining, and so on.
You might not be able to fully squelch your emotions, but you can decide to accept what’s happened, regardless of how you feel about it. The sooner you accept it, the sooner you can act from where you are, which is the only way to change how you feel.

Wrap me up in Autumn Colors.

gambitskygambitsky1

Since the unpredictable Scandinavian weather  has been having menopause, it has been really hard to be able to shoot looks for you guys. I’m deeply sorry for this… But since i live in a country that 50% is snow, 48% is rain and 2% is sun, it can be really challenging for me to be able to shoot the way i like.

But the good news are that my talented photographer Mikael has got new camera equipment for us to be able to work when the weather is bad. We will be able to shoot inside without being completely needing the sunlight; which is really good.

Anyways, I really love the way this outfit looks. It’s sophisticated yet so comfortable! I have always been a fan of big and soft scarfs during the autumn and winter; it does so much to a whole dark outfit and also not to forget… keeping you warm.
Here i’m using the scarf around my upper body and securing it with a belt.

Since the scarf has different kind of colors; i paired together with a burgundy bag to give my outfit a little bit more of life on these dark days.

I really love these kind of looks; easy to achieve and not necessary expensive; Which i think it’s a big plus 😉 .
