Today I have some retro vibes. I am wearing a dress that looks like grandma’s robe.* Seriously. The piece I am thinking of was white with some printed flowers and my grandma used to wear it around the house all the time. But it never made it out from home, oppositely to mine, which is most definitely an outwear. We, generation of no dress code, take all these previously home clothes and wear it all around the city in a shape of slip dresses or underwear flexing our chest in a walk of pride. Hell, yeah!
Funny how fashion makes circles, picking up from the past the most surprising elements and bringing them back in the most stylish way. Interestingly what it will choose from our today’s trends. Will it be transparent pants from Topshop** or maybe ruffled footwear*** I recently got and could not be more psyched about? Whatever it is going to be, most probably we will fall for it.
Anyways, I was going to write today a blog post about friendship related issues, but it is so hot that I struggle to gather some reasonable thoughts.
So the thing is that for past couple of weeks, I had been feeling super lonely in all of my relationships. I feel like no one understands what I am talking about. I guess the main issue that I am experiencing is being lost in translation, but with most of my friends I speak my native language, so possibly it is also a lack of ability to express what I want.
And so I choose to sit at home alone. This refuge appeared to be a remedy for the social issues but as my alienation is worrying a lot of my friends, I get thousands of worried messages and end up feeling guilty for pushing away such a great people.
Back to the dress, returning fashion trends and my grandma. She was a clever gal choosing such a garment for summer, cos it is airy and soft on the skin. The real deal though is in its flattering design, cos as I see it, every single girl will look in it amazing.
How do you like it? DO you inspire with the style of your relatives? Do you also look for solitude every now and then? Let me know in comments below.

My friend advised these dresses are called in Polish szmizjerka and in English shirt dress. Maybe that is true, but what I was referring to in my post is polish word ‘podomka’, which I failed to translate to English. In polish it defines a dress that is worn at home.
Video by Sodfiya Nygaard about transparent Topshop pants HERE. (She made more videos with ‘the ugliest clothes on earth, it is super hilarious and quite interesting 🙂
My ruffled mules HERE. Funny story, when buying them I thought they were inspired with Miu Miu slides I saw on Aimee Song HERE, but they actually have been inspired with something totally else. Possibly ruffled boots by J.W. Anderson HERE.
