Beach Essentials Under $25

A few years ago we had to have only couple of bikinis, one beach towel and maybe a cute straw bag for the summer. But consumerism took over, and now every respectful fashionista can't "survive" even one resort vacation without at least 10 beach outfits, consisting of numerous monokinis, bikinis, accessories and hot sheer dresses and kimonos.

I don't know about you, but I feel that pressure too! Who wants to be seen wearing the same bikini for the whole summer?! But you don't have to spend thousands of dollars to get all the hottest beach essentials, because I have linked the best swimsuits and accessories for you UNDER $25! So.. SHELL we? ;)


Coverups can instantly make your beach outfit look glamorous, stylish and are perfect for pool parties. I also put them on when I feel uncomfortable being in a bikini and want a little bit more coverage.

My donut blanket from Shein is so cute and fun that it instantly brightens up any pool or beach party. Bare in mind that it is very light and thin though, so it won't stay perfectly straight on the sand if it's too windy.
 I have linked more of beach towels and blankets for you under $25. Seriously there are so many choices!

Make Me Chic Jackets


I <3 NY


How cool is this New York jacket from Make Me Chic? It is very simple and I like wearing it when I need to run a quick errand in the city. It is not cheesy touristy at all, but still "sings an ode" to one of the best cities in the world!

Unfortunately, it is now sold out, but you can find other cool jackets on Make Me Chic website. Everything is very affordable!

Postcards from New York with SHEIN.

Creative photoshoot. NYC postcard vintage 2017

Sometimes I love experimenting with editing, and today I have created a NYC vintage-postcards' style little lookbook for Shein. The photo-cards are warm, summery and give me this tangible nostalgic feeling. It reminds me of old love letters, vintage maps and Lana Del Rey's melancholic songs.  Let me know if you would like me to create an editing tutorial for you, guys!

For my Look number 1 I wore this stylish Shein dress. I was surprised how well-made and fine this dress is for its price! The dress is very easy to wash, and very easy to style, so I think it is really perfect for college girls, and for school. I wore it with my Levi's denim jacket and Buscemi sneakers.

Best off-the-shoulder styles at WALTER BAKER.

Walter Baker floral dress

I have been a loyal Walter Baker fan for years, and as you have probably noticed, I often wear pieces by this NYC designer. I call him The King of off-the-shoulder as no other brand has such a great variety of tops and dresses in this style.

The weather in New York has been a little bit chilly, but I still wanted to wear this beautiful floral dress. It was easy to style it with some high boots and a warm coat, but I am looking forward to wear this piece in summer with some sandals and a straw hat! At the end of this post I have linked not only my dress, but other gorgeous off-the-shoulder items from Walter Baker's new collection.

Denim Basics with SHEIN

For years I have been contemplating if I should get denim overalls, and I finally gave in! I found this perfect one in SHEIN just for $25. It is very comfortable and easy to wear over a top, a sweater or wear as jeans with a big tshirt or a hoodie.

I had fun with this denim outfit and shot it for my upcoming pastiche of Walking Dead TV show. As you can see from the fluffy snow around me, I had to travel to Utah to get to "accessory" my look properly ;)

DressLink Review

Subway NYC photoshoot, DressLink Review, The most comfortable sweatpants

Girls, I think I have found the most perfect home / casual 'doing groceries' outfit ever! I didn't expect much when DressLink have sent me this Milan Fashion grey set, but from the moment I put it on, I can't stop wearing it! It is extremely soft on the inside, and it makes me feel like I am wearing a warm cloud. The set is comfortable and looks so stylish that I wear it even out when I need to get groceries or meet up with a friend for a quick coffee break.

This set comes in 4 different colours, and it is just $18! I have also linked other casual attires I found on DressLink for you at the end of this post.
