WOMEN IN POWER

thenewclass-02.png

There comes a time when every single one of us stop for a moment and wonder... Who we really are, how do we look from aside, have accomplished enough till now and generally what do we represent as women to the outer world ...  And most of us including my self never see the end of it... I think I never had that moment where I thought my life is complete - and that I have accomplished enough... never. There is always space and place to grow, there are always new ways to improve and there is enough time to leave at least a small mark in this world. And keeping this in mind we can never give up and be happy with what we have now, we always have to want more in order to move forward and make a statement.
I believe most of You already sensed that this article is for You - for all the strong women that fight day to day to to achieve and to receive and generally how this state of mind and lifestyle affects our image.
Lets go back to our beloved 80s... Don't know about You but for me everything that speaks for 80s is something to admire... the music, the fashion, the art... I could go on and on. Its simply the decade of perfection. And never the less the decade of women in power. Generally speaking I would say its the decade where women felt free to wear what they like despite the norms and started the movement of genderless wardrobe. Of course in small steps at a time. As we know it was at the 80s when women entered the workforce in sheer force, and with it came a very aggressive idea of power dressing. Thanks to them we got the wide shoulders , the structural shapes and most of all a lot thinner line between men and women styles. Women in the work force were popularizing the idea of “power dressing” summarizing the fashion of the decade and the modern-woman’s desire to break free from traditional gender roles and make their mark in the business world. 
While we can not be grateful enough for the women of 80s it seems that we keep up the good work in a lot fiercer way nowadays as well. Not only do we keep our ground strong and firm - we continue to spread the strong woman image in a lot simpler times. Im sure You will agree with me that fashion today is harder to define than ever, with a sense of individuality and self-expression.  Women are looking to embrace their femininity while also incorporating traditionally masculine-styles into their wardrobes. Fashion seems to be in a state of constant growth and exploration, while nods to past decades continuously find themselves embedded in every season’s “trends. "
Meaning we are left without any concrete trends or fashion statements, but the freedom to dress to express - our selves, our lifestyles, our believes through fashion. Tell me if I'm wrong but that seems to be the best stage we could have ever dreamed of.
Moving on to the outfit that Im wearing... Caught by the mood of feminity and power, in the best place for that in the world, inspired by all the career woman surrounding me, I wanted to mix and match 80s with nowadays. And honestly I was smart enough to take  Renata Mikailionyte's pieces in my luggage that spoke the topic better than anything else. A short moment  about the designer so that You would get the idea  - RM creates thin lined gender clothes for women that fear nothing, at least that was my first expression when I saw her collection. As You can see the west gives a sharp manly image to the whole outfit, especially matched with classic shaped pants with a typical 80s print, so that You can easily state that this is a typical classic look, yet matched with expressive bag and military boots it gets to a completely new modern classic look. 
To sum up we live in the times that give no rules, no boundaries. We have all the rights and all the freedom to do or to look as we wish. Lets not only be glad about it but lets make the best of it.

BANG BANG

Tell me if time to time You don't have that amazing feeling where You feel You are on top of the world? Where You feel stronger than ever? Where Your independency reaches the level You have been working for all Your life? Im sure You do. And well the more often the better. Nowadays in the world where women stand stronger than ever and have the voice that has never been so powerful we tend to reach for a lot more. Both in life and well in our closet. And well lets be fair when this feeling hits You and the streets become Your personal runway - You have to have the right pieces on You.
So lets make it a bit more interesting this time. As today is all about being fierce and fabulous woman. Imagine that the street is a war field and Your clothes are Your ammunition. I know it sounds a bit crazy but in the end is very much alike. Anyways imagine having the right gun is like having the right piece on You. It not only can “ save Your life” but it can and it makes You feel a lot stronger than You’d feel without it. When in the same time not having enough bullets is like going to a war zone bare foot. Same as going out without any accessories on You. When it comes tolooking outstanding and feeling strong You have to look at it in the right way. Maybe even as unusual as we speak now, just to give it a different perspective right? Puling out the big guns like Your top coat or Your most fabulous bag can be life changing, when in the same time having enough bullets such as sunglasses and watches or what ever accessories You would go for is crucial.
So lets talk more about those fierce moments when You own the streets. Normally its better when it hits You in the mid summer and You have the chance to pull out Your fabulous pair of heels, the skinniest pair of black jeans, white flawless top and well of course Balmain type of black jacket. Then after walking the line You don't even feel Your feet killing You, as well we live in the real life unlike in the perfect scenario created by a fictional character Carrie Bradshaw.  Otherwise when it hits You in mid winter - You have to act smart. And by smart I mean both ways.
I suppose each self respecting woman deserves to have that fabulous and one of a kind coat, that looks outstanding despite what are You wearing under. As an example You can take my to die for piece from MAS924, a coat that fits any occasion any mood and well any style You go for. If its sunday morning and You are in Your trainers and Uggs, or if its friday evening and You pull out You killer boots out. So when there is such piece hanging in Your closet and You want to have that perfect feminine energy on You - this is what You should go for. And well after that, honestly its not so important what goes under it hehe... 
Another strong moment is - sunglasses. Don't know how about You but in my eyes women with sunglasses always gives a mysterious yet fabulous vibe. Especially when she is not afraid to wear them in winter time. And well as I have said many many times having the right pair of sunglasses can give Your image completely different meaning. I am a Dior girl.. everything what they create somehow fits my style and my mood. And well my beloved So Real ones simply will never leave my accessories box and well they will never be out of style. So what I mean to tell is that fabulous pair of glasses is number one investment, without it You ll always have that one small moment missing.
In the end when You have these two pieces figured out all whats left is for Your imagination. As the base is done. So since its always dark, cold and disgusting I tend to go for brighter colours, unlike everyone. Because well its different and it makes Yourself feel a lot better. And when I go bright I go white. As can there really be any other tone that will work each and every time You decide to go for it? No.
So to sum up sometimes its not so much about the trends as its about the vision You want to stand out. And the more its about You wanting to look strong and confident the better. The more You want to shoot Your sharpest bullets to the world the more big guns You have to have. And well a fabulous coat is one of the strongest winter season guns, as well as the right sunglasses or a bag. All in all our image speaks about us stronger than words most of the time so make sure You keep it exactly how You want for people to see You.

North pole

Well... jumping from +30 to minus 20 is something... without mentioning the crucial feeling its quite charming! You get to jump from stilettos to winter boots, from silk dresses to parkas and from one piece at a time to at least 4 layers. Cant complain!
Having to spend a week in Africa led me to a wide range of inspirations... life wise and well of course fashion. Also I had the time to go through whole Eyes Mast feed and got new exciting thoughts that I will be bringing in 2017... hope You ll like it!
Anyways most important moment when I got back wasn't the fact that I have to unpack, as well Im sure most of You like myself simply hate that part... it was the "what the hell to wear at this weather" moment... Fact of missing almost all of my winter clothes didn't quite help choosing, but in the end nature helped to make the right decision with a gift of minus 20 degrees in the morning...
So mainly my outfit idea narrowed to a very clear look - the warm and comfortable outfit that would fit perfectly whilst running around the city and spending half of the time outside. I knew that my day simply can not start without the right pair of leather pants, as lets be fair in any look they make the right statement.  And honestly I decided not to pay much attention to the tops as well u know those days when You simply wanna go for a hoodie?So I did and for that I chose new local brand called My Face sadly U cant really see it as its too cold to open the parka but Im sure You love their job, so go check it out, as I fell in love with their concept and well the quality. And my main target was the perfect jacket and the right pair of boots. After going through my winter closet I chose this beautiful Cultus oversized parka that perfectly fits in to the busy city life and well helps You to survive any weather You choose to be in, which in our case is well north pole isn't it?
Another insanely important moment is a bag , which has to go along with the perfect oversized parka. So what does it mean? Bag has to be big and juicy! Meaning it has to fit half of Your life in it! haha! And let me make sure it did.
So lets get to the point - during these insanely cold winter days You have to choose the right outfits and well when if not now let our selves be loose and oversized ? I say now ! So go ahead and get You favourite oversize piece and run down the streets feeling comfy and fabulous!

P.S.
