Besides, there’s a lot of happiness and joy in her pictures. Madame Julietta has always new clothes on her blog, clothes that I’d kill for. Her style is fresh, youth. And the last one from my favourite polish bloggers is Smok Smoczynska. She has unusual sense of humor. I love to read every sentence that she wrote under her pictures.

It’s possible to be both of them? Sometimes I look on some pictures and think “I’d like to have the same clothes”. And then I try to buy them. But, on the other hand, I buy a lot of clothes, that are unusual, because they come from second hand. And when I find something that isn’t trendy at the moment, but I like it, I buy it. And later, it turns out, that’s the hit of the future fashion collections.
