romantic meets urban

My fabulous fashionistas!

Time to show you my favorite all black everything outfit off all time! Ok, ok I know I said it like several times but this one is my fave, seriously ;-)!

I’m wearing all black with different textures and styles. Mix of romantic, transparent, tech, faux fur, leather and urban details. Who said black tends to look anonymous? Voluminous under knee skirt in tech fabric elevated with trendy “Off White” inspired belt & logo trend on tights. Totally urban. Urban and kind a cool ;-)!

Now that I’m mentioning the word cool I have to tell you the story of my totally not cool past. For over half of my life I was overweight. Not like 5 kg over but 25 kg more than a usual kid should have. I was so depressed, insecure and I felt like the ugliest girl on planet. Like it wasn’t enough, when I had around 10 years I started to suffer from Rheumatic Arthritis. Its autoimmune chronic illness which practically destroyed my joints. I passed months in hospital, I gained even more weight caused by taking strong cortisone therapy and I felt more and more insecure. This event had a huge impact on my life. Beside I had to learn how to fight against Arthritis (which usually attacks patients over 60 years old) I learned that being insecure or weak is not an option any more. So I lost more then 30 kg in 3 months, I exercised every single day (when you suffer from arthritis its not easy or pleasant at all) and I let my real me to go out of her shell and be kind, funny, lunatic. Its about changing your attitude. Its about feel gratitude because there are people suffering way more difficult issues. Its about taking bad events like a lesson not like a conviction. I mean I still have my Arthritis, not only unfortunately ;-), I also have Vitiligo (autoimmune disease which attack skin and causes pigment lost) & hashimoto thyroiditis (disease in which the thyroid gland is gradually destroyed) but I refuse to be desperate because of that. Ok, lately I gained weight because my thyroid doesn’t work properly but I’m gonna fight these also. I maybe failed my last 12456 attempts to start a diet but for a 12457 time its gonna be successful :-). It has to be!!! Accept a failure its not an option. There is a beautiful quote I read time ago; “You didn’t come this far to only come this far”! Right?!

There were moments in my past where I refused to go out of my house just because i had a fear of meeting other people. I had fear of being just observed by others because I felt I’m too fat or to ugly or to stupid to show in front of others. I can definitely say I made huge progress and I come really far. So, no the answer is no, I didn’t come this far to only come this far!

I’m still not on the level of iconic Marilyn Monroe who answered to critics that she gained weight with; “So what, now I’m even more delicious!” but I try to not identity myself only with a current shape of my body. Its my lifetime struggle, and I know I’m not the only one. This is why I write this.

I really love this outfit. Looks gorgeous on almost every body type, so it really doesn’t matter are you plus-size, skinny, short or tall this outfit is perfect autumn deal. Leather gilet with faux fur details looks totally rock but with a touch of romantic sheer blouse under becomes so glamorous and feminine. Rigid leather bag is kind a vintage kind a business chic. Perfect daily bag.

I have so many beautiful autumn outfit ideas for you! Be sure to follow Fashionista Facts on Instagram for everyday style updates and interesting beauty tutorials.

Wish You an amazing week!
