HI, I’M AGNES — let's get to know each other, shall we?

In December 2012, I turned 30 which was so humping that I decided to start this blog to spice up my life.

I love clothing and fashion since my early childhood when I dressed myself and my Barbies in matching and chic garments. Just look at this typical kindergarten photo of me ☺
When I became older I started to read women magazines on a daily basis and I collected tons of articles from them.

I got absolutely engaged to fashion, though, when I became a passionate fan of Sex and the City.

And in 2011, I found Polyvore, a marvelous and addictive site where I can satisfy all my creativity creating awesome outfits and occasionally home décor sets.

How I met with seasonal color analysis?


In the middle of the 1990s, my mom borrowed a book, written by Mary Spillane: The Complete Style Guide that changed my mind about clothing. This was the time when I first met with seasonal color analysis and the ‘Color Me Beautiful’ system. I realized that I was a Winter type so I stopped wearing light brown and pale colors. I reorganized my wardrobe and bought some dark (black, grays, navy blue or dark gray-brown) and vivid (red, green, purple or pink) clothes. It was easy for me because I love these colors! During high school and my twenties, I developed a significant style that can be easily recognized by my friends and they call it ‘Agnes-y’. When I'm shopping with my gals, they can easily decide which clothes suit me or I would wear.

Soon I imagined myself working as an image and color consultant and my dream became true when I got my certification after a 10-week long training in February 2013.

I believe that every woman can emphasize her true beauty with the right color shades and look fabulous.


I also committed helping you finding your suitable style according to your seasonal palette, face and body shape. So don’t look further for tips and advice.

What else can you read on 30 something urban girl?


I love browsing red carpet and street style photos so I usually create best-dressed lists and get outfit ideas from ladies around the world.
Color can be used not just in our wardrobes but our home décor as well and I suppose that our seasonal palette reflects on our decorating colors.
And everybody needs a little courage time to time so I collect and publish awesome quotes and meaningful wisdom.

Feedbacks are always welcome, no need to feel shy here I'd love to hear from you.


At age 3, my favorite pair of shoes was a red and patent leather one which transformed into one and more beautiful and designed high heels for today so that's why I choose them for the blog logo. After I drew them Dorothy came up my mind. She also wears ruby slippers in her way to find the Wizard of Oz.
 

Well, put on my magic red heels and follow the online 'yellow brick road' to my wonderland


I hope you enjoy!


XOXO,

Hi Agnes,
My name is Dannii from Sydney, Australia, and I just love your website. One of your weekly favourites continues to haunt me: it is the girl in the cobalt blue dress.

I am trying to work out why she looks so feminine. I think it might be because of the high waistline, but I am keen to know your thoughts.

Hi Dannii,
I'm really glad you like my blog :) thank you so much for reading.

Here are my thoughts about the girl you mentioned:
1. dress is feminine because of the high waistline, the mini skirt part and of course the lace textile,
2. the high heels make her figure more elongated and fragile,
3. the accessories are classic, moderate and chic + the gold creates a beautiful contrast with the dress,
4. and finally I think her hairstyle is also classy and ladylike :)

I hope that I could help.
