Sporty heels from Mini Prix

Although Harper's Bazaar said sporty heels are totally out, I say the hell with it ( it only shows very expensive stuff anyway) and I'm gonna show you how to create 3 different outfits with them. As I told you before I'm a little maniac when I find clothes I like and I end up buying the same item in 2 different colours/prints. This also happened with some sporty heels I found at Mini Prix a couple of weeks ago, so I bought them in brown and also grey.
Desi Harper's Bazaar a declarat ca pantofii sport cu toc nu mai sunt "in trend", m-am decis sa nu ma intereseze (oricum revista prezinta numai chestii ft scumpe) si am creat 3 tinute cu ei. Cum v-am spus si mai demult, nu am masura atunci cand gasesc o haina care-mi place si ajung sa o cumpar in 2 exemplare in culori/printuri diferite. Asta mi s-a intamplat si acum cateva saptamani, cand am gasit botinele astea sport, asadar le-am cumparat si pe maro, si pe gri.
The first outfit is an office one, in neutral colours. I started with the dress I wore here, some brown tights(100 DEN cause it's cold outside), a beige trench and a brown collar. 
Prima tinuta e una oarecum office, in culori neutre. Am inceput cu o rochie pe care am mai purtat-o aici, dresuri mate maro (100 DEN pt ca e cam frigut afara), un trench bej si un guler maro.
(dress-TCM, trench - Esprit, collar - Bershka)

I wore the second outfit at the Christmas party, hence the red pants. The white sweater was a gift and I never found a proper occasion to wear it because of it's fluffyness (it looks as if I have sheep fur at my neck and wrists), but on that day I couldn't find a better way to express the warmth and sheer joy of the holidays. It wasn't that cold outside, so I put my leather jacket on and added a touch of chicness (searched it in the dictionary, it's a real word :p) with an animal print beret.
A doua tinuta am purtat-o la petrecerea de Craciun, de-aia am pantaloni de culoare rosie. Puloverul alb l-am primit cadou si pana acum nu am gasit nici o ocazie potrivita sa-l port din cauza ca este ft pufos (parca am blanita de oaie la maneci si la gat), dar in acea zi mi s-a parut cea mai buna metoda sa exprim caldura si bucuria sarbatorilor. Nu a fost ft frig afara, asa ca pe deasupra mi-am luat geaca de piele si am adus o nota chic cu o bereta animal print.
(pants - Stradivarius; beret - bought at a random fair)

For the last one I mixed both feminine and masculine, creating a playful outfit I can wear at school. I rolled up my boyfriend jeans, so that my boots were seeable, but added a marilyn monroe tee and a fur vest.
La final, am amestecat elemente feminine cu unele masculine, pt un look jucaus, numai bun de mers la facultate. Am suflecat perechea mea preferata de boyfriend jeans, pt ca botinele sa se poata vedea, dar i-am purtat cu un tricou cu marilyn monroe si o vestuta de blana.
(jeans - Miss Sixty; tee - Bershka; fur vest - Promod; cardigan - Reserved)

As you can see, it's pretty easy to mix and match these boots, especially because they have different shades of brown and you can add simpler pieces. I personally prefer to wear brown with either red and off-white/beige, or with dark blue/purple/kaki.
Stay tuned 'cause in my next post I will show you another 3 ways to wear sporty heels, this time the grey ones. 
Dupa cum vedeti, e destul de usor sa compui o tinuta cu aceste botine sport, mai ales pt ca au nuante diferite de maro si poti adauga piese simple. Personal prefer sa combin culoarea maro cu rosu si bej/alb neimaculat :) sau cu albastru/mov/kaki inchis.
Reveniti si maine pe blog, o sa va arat alte 3 combinatii, insa cu botinele gri.


  1. Love the fur vest and the leather jacket too! The heck with Harper's Bazaar! :)

  2. I love all these looks! I hate the "in and out" lists in magazines...I think if you mix anything the right way it will always be "in"!!
    I love all these outfits...and I love the shoes!


  3. @playing hooksies: I'm glad we agree!
    @natasha: I also love the challenge of mixing something that to others may appear as an ugly item. and I must say I saw your DIY's and they're totally inspiring. thanks, hon!

  4. especially the second outfit is amazing!

  5. @marta: it's one of my fav outfits so far!

  6. Love your broughes and trench coat.. The leopard print beret is fab!!!
