July 2015: Floral Maxi Dress

5:37 PM
Hello, babies! Today, I would love to share with you another editorial photo shoot from when we visited York State River Park. I love this park not just for the beautiful landscape, but also for  the peaceful nature surrounding it. You can walk around, have a small picnic or even take a ride with your bike. The best part is all the beautiful spots to shoot. A little beach is one of my favorite places. Here I'm wearing a gorgeous maxi dress in floral print from Dressin. I'm so obsessed with maxi dresses lately. You will see more of my maxi obsession soon.

July 2015: Monochrome at York Town

12:49 PM
Hello, babies! Since all Instagram feeds seem covered with monochrome pictures, I thought maybe it is my turn to show you my monochrome outfit. If you do not own a long gray maxi dress, you should definitely check Lulu's. Soft material, unique style and an affordable price makes this dress a must-have item! I was so happy when my package from Lulu's arrived.  Also, I was hunting for these lace up flats, that you see on basically every blogger. When I got mine, I was in heaven! I got them as well from Lulu's.  For accessories, I layered my necklaces from Trendhood & Lulu's. To keep my outfit in the same tone, I picked out my new sunglasses from ZeroUV.

July 2015: Portland Head Lighthouse | Coach

12:53 PM
Hi, babies! Here is my second outfit from Portland, ME. If you remember my previous post, I wrote about how we visited one of oldest lighthouses in Maine. This place is incredibly beautiful. It was the best decision to snap couple of outfits for my blog! Comparing to Virginia, Maine weather is much cooler.  Even though we saw some people dressed up like it is a hot summer, it didn't work for me. I was freezing! A cozy sweater was necessary to keep me warm. To bring some summer vibes, I chose to wear my new Coach mini bag! I'm just in love with how this perfect bag popped out from the entire monochrome outfit. What is your big trend obsession?

July 2015: You can always look like $1K with a $50 dress!

1:16 PM
Hello babies!  The last time I was folding clothes, I thought that maybe I should toss or give away some of my stuff that looks pretty used.  My next thought was, "Why do I love this shirt so much?  I don't need it, so why keep it?"  I'm pretty sure many of you have thought the same thing before! Some of my clothes are so old that they barely fit.  I still love them anyway.  It's not like anything was incredibly expensive either.  I would never buy anything over $1K.  I'm sure somebody will call me crazy or ask, "Don't you ever want to have Celine or Chanel bag?"  But you know, I don't!  There are so many other things in life that you can spend your money on instead of one bag!  There isn't strong enough reason to buy these bags and clothes!  Fashion goes fast.  Everything changes within the blink of an eye.   Why do you want this bag?  Because all other famous bloggers or celebrities wear it!  Good advertising makes us want things that we do not need!  Today, the world gives us unlimited resources and opportunities to make an impact in the fashion world.  Clothing stores like Poshmark, Chicwish, and Zara keep pace with fashion at affordable prices.  You can always look like $1K with a $50 dress!  My mom always told me, that during the Soviet Union days, there were not so many stores where you can find trendy items.  It was hard to look different and stylish.  We are lucky in today's world to be able to express our style.
In the spirit of my long thought, I want to show my next elegant look where I spent less than $100. Chicwish has very affordable prices for any fashionista.  Their clothes are not only cheap, but also very stylish and of great quality! My mint mini-bag was totally free after collecting coins at IFCHIC. For pumps, I chose my wedding shoes that I bought at Zappos (2 years ago!).

July 2015: "What does Home mean to me?"

2:33 PM
You know, I have been living out of my home country (Kazakhstan) for about 7 years, and most people ask me if I miss my home. Most of the time, I say, "Yes, I do! I miss my family, my friends, traditions and everything else there that is important to me!"  Even so, I am comfortable being in new places. I adjust easily. Maybe it's because of my Kazakh nomad heritage. Lol. Every time I move to a new place, I feel that it is my new home. I asked myself today: "What does Home mean to me?"

Home is the place where I'm safe, where music tells me to dance, where nature captures me in her magic circle, where people make me feel happy and make me smile, where inspiration grows and spreads around me, and most important, where my love (husband) motivates me to live and create. I love and enjoy to discover new places, all of which I can call my home!

July 2015: Editorial at York State River Park

7:02 PM
For this editorial photo shoot, we decided to drive to York State River Park. You will not believe me, but it was insanely hot (99F), and it started rain before we got to the park. I was quite unhappy, because of the rain, but at same time, it is the best time to shoot during cloudy weather. Even though we were sweating when trying to get to the lake, I changed my outfit and we started to shoot! My curls went down and my make-up looked like I cried. I had no choice but to wear sunglasses. I planned from the beginning how will I style this look. This incredibly beautiful printed skirt is from Chicwish, which I wore with a striped "top" (it is a romper, sssshhhhh, that's a secret).

July 2015: I love the way you love me

5:21 AM
Hey, guys! Sorry for the short message! For this post, I created a simply fun outfit that is different from my previous looks. I picked one of my favorite shirts from Style Moi that worked pretty well with a kitty printed skirt from Mr. Gugu & Miss Go. When I pulled out everything together, I thought it would be fun to put my hair up! Don't you think so? Sometimes it's cool just to be playful and have a good time. I think it added to the mood of our shoot, since we were laughing and joking the whole time. My husband gets really distracted when we shoot near the forest. He keeps trying to catch wildlife. Anyway, hope you like my fun look!

July 2015: How to dress to impress

4:53 AM
New Week! New outfit! Today's outfit is inspired by Asian Style, aka Korean Style. You know that before I came to the USA, I lived in South Korea for about a year and returned there for Seoul Fashion Week this past March. Korea was the first place where I started loving to mix and match! Moving to the USA changed my style to more feminine, discreet and classic. It's not so bad, but sometimes I miss the Korean Street Fashion influence on my wardrobe. As soon as I got my new Chicwish skirt, I thought about Korea! I wanted to create something cute, fun and beautiful. By the way, they love to wear cute socks with virtually any kind of shoes. I got mine during my last trip to Seoul. If you would like to have a pair for yourself, be sure to visit our store Trendhood, since we have some cute socks there!

July 2015: 10K on Instagram

8:18 PM
Hello, babies! I hope you had a fantastic weekend! I can't believe it, but I made my goal! 10K followers on Instagram @differentcands! Yeah! Hard work is finally paying off! I'm so thankful to all of you who made it happen!!!! Don't worry, I will run a new giveaway for you!

Lately, I got really busy with all of my projects and collaborations! I want to share all the beautiful pictures we took. Just stay with us!

Today's post is about my last Larmoni dress. They have a lot of cute dresses that you might not find on any other online store. This cute mini dress is a must-have, especially for ladies who have short legs like me ;) I wish that I had the right genes to be taller! At least I have a cute face! LOL. If you don't know how to make your legs look longer, just wear a mini skirt or dresses. I guess this is why you will not find Korean ladies wearing midi or maxi skirts!What are your thoughts about mini skirts?

July 2015: Under the Sun

4:04 AM
Happy Friday, peeps! Since the last time I talked about our move to California, we are still making plans on how we are going to drive across the country. I do not know so much about the middle part of the USA, because I never been there. I would imagine this is probably true for some of you too. I would love to hear if you ever been somewhere interesting and could give advice on what we should see and visit! It would be wonderful and very helpful! 

Even though the hot weather is burning and drying out all my flowers,  I still enjoy spending some time under the sun! Today, I'm wearing a new jumpsuit from SheIn. I was a little sad that it feels small on me. Now I'm wondering if I gained extra weight. It is so hard to stay away from ice-cream. LOL. To complete my summer look, I picked one of my vintage summer hats and orange mules from Lulus.

July 2015: Men Inspired Look

4:55 AM
I keep experimenting with my outfits. Today, I want to share my menswear-inspired outfit. I think it is so different from all my feminine looks that you have seen on my blog!  To not stray too far from men's style, I paired my classic Forever 21 pants with my new striped shirt from Style Moi. Since I do not own any masculine looking shoes, I went with my Adidas Stan Smith sneakers that incorporate a boyish style. A big watch like Daniel Wellington and a modern design bag completes by menswear theme. Maybe I should have found a satchel? That's another name for a male purse =P

July 2015: Hippie Fashion / California Style

6:15 AM
As you know, we're moving pretty soon to California! I can't describe how thrilled and exciteI feel! There is a great deal of the US I have never seen before, so we are planning to take a road trip  across the country! You can always watch my snap videos on Snapchat (@queenhorsfall)! I do not publish there too often, because there is nothing special, but when I travel, I do it for sure! Today's post is being inspired by Hippie Fashion / California Style. I don't know how you picture it, but I have an image how every California girl looks! Haha, maybe that's a bit stereotypical! I guess it is what it is! For this look, I'm wearing a white tribal dress from SheIn, Polette Sunglasses (grab your 30% off with code: Coconut), Trendhood triangle rings, a Forever 21 hat and mini bag! Give me a shout out if you want us to possibly swing through your hometown and meet.  No promises (my husband is in charge of driving), but it could be fun!

July 2015: Thinking Out Loud

4:55 AM
Hi, guys!  Have you ever questioned why should you should continue blogging ? Does anybody truly read me? Does my style inspire anybody? Am i just wasting my time? I have been trying pretty hard to engage my followers to read my blog or my Instagram. It has been very hard! Most people just keep writing the same comments from post to post. But lately, I am finally seeing my true readers, who actually read what I think and what I ask! I really appreciate you guys!!!!!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR LOVE & SUPPORT! If you didn't know, my editor / husband has been helping me with my English writing skills since I've spoken English for only a few years!  Knowing that you, my lovely readers, continue to read, makes us even more inspired!!!

Today, I'm wearing a Mr Gugu & Miss Go printed dress that I paired with one of my favorite vintage coats. For details, I chose my new marble Polette eyewear and new phone case from Mr Gugu & Miss Go. It was kind of a rainy day, but I thought this outfit was perfect for warm summer rain.

July 2015: Think about location / Portland

4:25 AM
Happy Monday guys! You know that few weeks ago, I went on small trip to Portland, Maine. Even though it was a stressful trip, we still had fun with our friends celebrating Independence Day together. Unfortunately, we had no chance to see a lot of Portland, but at least we organized a small excursion to the oldest lighthouse in Maine - Portland Head Light. As soon as we entered the gate, I knew that it would be a great location to shoot my few outfits. Of course, before leaving, I organized what I would wear and how to style it. My husband and I have been trying to have interesting photo shoots lately. The idea of spicing up the blog shoots has definitely led to it being more successful! 

Thank you to my supportive husband for creating beautiful images for my followers!  For this small photo shoot, I picked one of new dresses from Larmoni. They have the cutest dresses I 've ever seen! This one particular really makes me smile! My favorite shoes - Adidas Original - are my go-to/ must-have item in my wardrobe. I love love love them so much! For accessories, I chose my new mini bag that I got from Ifchic! I don't know where I developed this big obsession over mini bags! And lastly, i cannot leave the house without my travel camera! This camera (Samsunng NX 300) | similar link here is another essential item for all bloggers who love to take pics and post them right away on Instagram!

June 2015: Accessories are important!

7:21 PM
Hi, sweeties! I hope your week has been great! I have been feeling tired lately. I have no idea why. Maybe it's because the days are so busy, like this one. In terms of news, our photographer for IFBK is in Berlin to cover MBFW for us! I feel so excited, because it is the first time we are covering fashion week in Germany! Stay with us if you want to see our street style pics.  Today's post is about why accessories are important in your closet. When I wasn't into blogging, I never paid much attention to small details like earrings, rings or bags.  Being a style blogger has taught me that without accessories, your wardrobe isn't complete! Here I'm wearing my favorite pants from Missguided that I paired with an Olsenboye top. For my accessory selection, I picked my Daniel Wellington watch, Trendhood bracelet and Lavish deer necklace.

July 2015: How to mix pastel with neon

Hello, my sweet ladies! Today I decided to show you how to mix your favorite spring/ summer colors, such as pastel and neon. I love to wear pastels, but this time I discovered my new color combo by mixing with neon. For this outfit, I picked a nude top from Banana Republic and paired it with geometric neon Style Moi shorts. To complete my look, I chose my Daniel Wellington watch, pastel bag and sandals from JustFab. Don't forget that you can get 15% off at Daniel Wellington with the promo code 'QUEENHDW'.  What is your favorite color combo?

July 2015: Our stressful flight with US Airways

8:05 AM
Hey, sweeties! I'm back from our small trip to Portland, ME. I hope you enjoyed your weekend. We had, like always, some travel stress courtesy of US Airways. They canceled our flight (that's not the first time) from Philadelphia to Portland and same situation on the way back.  The service center was even closed too. We were frustrated and very tired from running from one gate to another and hoping to get on the plane. Sadly, we were transferred to another airport in a different state and our friend had to drive 1.5 hours to come get us. If you watched my snapchat, you probably saw. Anyway, after we lost almost a day at the airport, we tried to catch up with our plans to eat lobsters, oysters, sushi and drink lots of Maine craft beer. We did not do so much sight-seeing, but we had an amazing time with our new friends. In my next post, you will see my new pictures that we took at Portland Head Lighthouse Park. 

Today, I'm wearing a floral dress from Style Moi. I love floral prints a lot, no matter if it is summer or winter. A chiffon maxi dress is the best way to look great in hot weather.

July 2015: Happy Independence Day!!!

9:46 PM
Happy Independence Day, my lovelies! I think this is my first time being in the States and celebrating this special day! I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Here is my look before we left for Maine.  If you are curious about what I have been up to, follow my travel on Snapchat @queenhorsfall or my Instagram @differencands.

I'm wearing my new matching set from Dresslink with my favorite sandals that I got in South Korea. Also, the modern blogger owns a bike! I love riding my bike, but because of the humid weather, I do not enjoy it as much as I would like.

July 2015: My Washington DC OOTD

1:12 AM
Hey, guys! I promised you that I'd share more pictures from my quick trip to Washington, D.C. It's funny that I did not realize how quickly times flies. We are leaving shortly to the airport for another small trip! Can't wait to shoot there too!

For those who missed my post when I introduced my fellow blogger-friend & photographer from Seattle, you can read here. Thanks to Teban for these beautiful pictures. For this small photo shoot, I'm wearing my new Ann Taylor blouse with a Dresslink maxi skirt.

July 2015: Daniel Wellington Trend

5:01 AM
If you are an Instagram user, you have probably seen how Swedish watches like Daniel Wellington became a big trend for every season. I am lucky enough to be an owner as well. This classic watch is not just trendy, but also elegant due to its simplicity and beauty. To shoot this look, we decided the best time was going to be before sunset. It is also why I chose to wear wide chiffon pants from Style Moi, that I paired with a Next She top. The sun behind me highlights my figure. I have been obsessed with blush / pastels colors lately. I guess it's a big influence from IG. Also, you can use promo code 'QUEENHDW' and get 15% off on your next purchase!
