I guess it's time to say bye to boiling hot weather, sunglasses, sandals and wandering around half naked, because Fall is already here saying hi. And I'm somewhere in between, what I like the most about this weather - dress, bare legs, but with added turtleneck and coat on top. The only thing left to say is MEH (my face expresses it perfectly).

One of these indecisive days, when even weather can't decide if it's still Summer or almost Fall, and it gets you as well and you stay in-between these two. With shoes, that are also somewhere between hot days of Summer and colder Fall days, and bring you the biggest comfort known to the human kind. I don't like half-measures, but they're best, when applied to how we dress.

Let's talk fanny packs... No, wait let's talk word fanny - I swear it will be quick. In terms of words murdering my ears, fanny is probably the worst f word of all time, making me have convulsions and try to rip off my ears. Let's put it against other words for our beautiful female private parts: pussy - cool; vagina - very serious, but some things have to be this way; and tons of other, very suggestive or overloaded with cuteness words. Fanny should banned from every person's vocabulary and simply vanish from Earth. Forever. One day, someone made an effort of naming small bag worn on the hips, after the worst word in the Universe - and that's how fanny pack was born (actually born in Greece centuries earlier), having popularity peek in the 90's, when everyone was rocking their fanny pack. Fortunately, someone has been brave enough to try alternative terms, making people familiar with bum bag, waist bag, apparently even Koala in Australia etc. Bum bags are back, but they got more fancy - manufactured in leather, shaped differently, with minimalistic details, trying to erase our memories of the synthetic ones, with crazy prints from the 90's era; and for everyone's mental health, they're being named bum bags, not the f* bags. Just imagine for instance: Céline fanny pack - could anyone take it seriously?

Denim season is official for all the fashionable (one of my least favorite words) people - opening any fashion-related magazines causes all the headlines to yell D E N I M at you. I don't know, if I should consider myself a very trendy person in these circumstances, since my wardrobe consists of tons of denim in a form of jeans, shorts, jumpsuits and shirts - half of it has been found in my mom's/dad's closet, donated to me or bought for nothing. Donation often entails some alterations - jeans with massive legs turn into shorts, too long legs get shortened, too wide ones - tapered. I've been experimenting with denim since I've discovered magic of my mom's closet and thrift stores and spent hours on changing the look of many pairs I still own. Here's the most recent one - jeans, that fit perfectly only when rolled up this way, with some fraying added, because it just looks cool. Grab a pair of scissors and just cut the hell out of that denim, instead of buying new ones, just because they have holes already made - it saves you money and lets your brain be creative for a bit.
