LAMiS 2010

I've came back from the Summer Fashion and Styling Academy on Saturday and I already miss Cracow! ♥ I've had such a lovely time and met a couple of fantastic people (who I shared a room with in a hostel). I was lucky enough that another blogger from my hometown won the same competition and we were able to go together, what's more she turned out to be such a sweet girl, thanks Dagmara! ♥
During the first three days we've had some lectures about AW '10 trends etc. plus we've worked on t-shirt DIYs, the latter turned out to be quite troublesome, especially for a person like me, who is not necessarily talented in sewing ;D Also, Wednesday was the day that I've had my photo shoot taken, for which I was supposed to style myself according to this autumn's trends. I'll show you the results of that as soon as I get the photographs, I haven't even seen them myself yet! On Thursday and Friday we've been learning about fashion photography and then we've had a chance to take a few photos of each other, which was quite fun too! The whole academy ended on Friday with a party organised by, where our competition photos were being exhibited.

All in all, I've had a lovely time and it was a great experience especially thanks to the people I've spent that time with and it was really fun to be living in Cracow for almost a week! ♥

Here are some random photos from last week:

Lull before the storm

First of all I'd like to apologize for not visiting your blogs recently! With the moving house and all I hardly had any spare time, but I promise to catch up very soon!
Second of all, I've won a spot in a Summer Fashion and Styling Academy, so I'm going to Cracow for 6 days on the 23rd August! It was basically a prize in the competition I wrote about in here and I'm so so happy about going!
Lastly, the outfit is rather simple, because it's too hot to wear anything complicated;) Apart from that all of it except for jewellery is either second hand or vintage. And the spot we've taken these photos in is one of my favourites near my house, too bad the visibility of the mountains is so poor, but that's just because the storm was coming ... the moment I stepped into my house the rain, thunders and lightings started.

The sound of the waves collide

Finally, I've managed to get all of my belongings sorted out and tidied, so I could pay some attention to this blog after over 10 days of total absence from all things internet and computer related. My moving house is almost complete, just one more box I'm waiting for and I'm done! ;)

Outfitwise, I've recently bought this dress on sale and loved it immediately mainly because of the cutout heart detail on the back. I know it look as if it's black on these photos, but in fact it's navy and I so love the combination of navy, gray and tan brown!
