2015 winter wishlist

This year is coming to and end - sadly, but at the same time thankfully- to give 2016 a new and fresh start. Each one of us has had a different year, a different opinion, different experiences.
But hey, some clothing articles are here to stay for a long time, not matter what year it is. Here are my new picks for the last time this year!

2015 winter wishlist

-Zara waistcoat: this has been a revolution in a great scale for waistcoats- with detachable fur collars, they make you look really chic and feel warm everywhere except your arms. Anyway, I haven´t got myself one because I myself prefer capes, but this Zara one has reached my heart I swear!
-H&M cape: Capes are being seen pretty much a lot in both runaways and on the streets, and how can you say no to the more affordable ones? They haven´t been much in the spotlight in the past 40 years butthey came back from the holidays and are becoming a staple in many people´s wardrobes!
-Yeezy sneakers: Kanye West´s clothing line is one of the most comfortable looking line I have ever laid my eyes on. Even though it´s pretty pricey, it has gone viral in the past two years and I must say I dream of getting something from there. You go Kanye! (P. s. these aren´t available for now so I can´t link them for you, sorry!)
-YSL Sac de Jour bag: this bag has been the death of me for I don´t know how long. The brand itself has been great lately, and I would bring most of their pieces home. I have seen many celebrities and non-celebrities rock it in such a cool way, I could say this is my dream bag. Hands down best bag of the year.
-Dior sunglasses: their different shape has drawn the attention of many bloggers, mine included. Such originality isn´t very common, in a way that akes these sunnies so attractive for the human eye. I really love these!
-Fendi bag and Karlito phone case: Fendi and its little monsters are an example of how fashion can be really fun when you want to. This bag is pretty simple and has nothing outstanding, while the Karlito phone case is something I find cute and funny everytime I look at it.
-Office booties: these snake print booties are something I have been chasing after for sooooo long. They are pretty easy to style and trendy this season, so grab a pair while you can!
-YSL polka dot bag: Polka dots are always fun, a good change in the wardrobe, but you can get tired of them easily. As I only have one article with little white dots all over it, and I have started to be a little bit too attracted to this pattern. Everyone can agree that polka dots look great in bags!
-YSL booties: high heel is something YSL makes it look pretty attractive as shoes. We can see many times Hailey Baldwin wearing boots from Saint Laurent, and they just look perfect for a night out or even in your everyday life. I adore this pair so much, especially the chain complement in the front.
-H&M fur jacket: this type of jacket has gone viral in the past year- bringing back the 70-80´s vibe along with chockers. It keeps you warm and if you love the fashion trends from 20 years ago, go and get this!
-ASOS velvet choker: I´ve been trying to find the perfect one in the shops I usually buy in but I guess this ASOS one has caught my eye. Simple and perfect, it make syou look kind of grunge and gives you that 90´s vibes that your parents were into (maybe).
-Bella Freud 1970 candle: for the past three months I have been burning vanilla candles non stop, and I won´t until a) I can´t afford them anymore or b) my mum forbiddens me to continue burning them. This one is a little bit pricey but the container is just so cool, I had to add it to my wishlist.
-Lola Hats pom-pom cap: these hats have been pretty trendy for the past few months and the pom-poms that have been added to them makes anyone look a hundred times cuter, seriously. If I find an affordable one around here I will waste no time on buying it.

Better late than ever!

Hi guys! Sorry for not being here much lately, especially during this special time- Christmas!
I know I should have done a wishlist before this post buuuuuuuuut I sadly didn´t, so I thought of showing you guys straight away what I got and hopefully make another post of my favourite stuff of the Christmas sales!
Soooo let´s get down to business, shall we?

what i got for christmas

-Polka dot blouse: new patterns are always welcomed to my wardrobe. And no, I haven´t had anything with little polka dots in it, so this Christmas I gave myself the chance to try something new. Mine is from Bershka, a little bit cropped and perfect to wear with high waited bottoms.
-Navy cropped sweatshirt: I have only had one cropped jumper and two navy ones, so I thought of having kind of a mix for a long time, but hadn´t bought until now. Pull&Bear is always incredible with teeny stuff so I gave it a go and bought a really cute sweatshirt from there. It´s really soft and perfect for winter!
-Velvet shorts: It´s funny because this pair of shorts makes you really hot during summer but you need tights to wear them during winter. Once again these are from Bershka, and they have a lace complement on the outline that makes them classy. They are also pretty soft and guess what- I love love love velvet haha.
-Punching bag and gloves: what a better way to stay fit than boxing? It seems fun and helps you burn lots of calories and makes you strong-which, ladies, doesn´t make you bulky at all. I can´t wait to try it out after wanting to do it for so many months!
- Body wash and lotion: as weird as it sounds, this wasn´t actually a present for me, but for one of my cousins. She wanted the perfume itslef, so she gave me the rest of the pack as a present haha. Both the body was and the lotion smell lovely and I can surely say that I at least use the lotion three times a day to moisturize my hands. 

What did you guys have for presents? Leave in the comments below! Kat x

BLACK FRIDAY (and hi again!)

Hi guys! Yep, I have been a whole month without posting anything- but I have an excuse; the exam weeks have been really stressful this month and I have had to study a lot. Because of this I haven´t been able to do much online.
Buuuuuuuuut last friday was BLACK FRIDAY, the dark and stressful last weekday in which everyone rushes to the shops to buy as much as they can, spending less than half of what they would in any other day.
And I got some cute stuff with my mum, which I thought of sharing with you!
First of all, I want to thank not only God but my favourite shops because of the replications these do, inspired in the contemporary fashion designers (which are pretty expensive to be honest).
Here I leave you with some ideas featuring what I bought last Friday (not all of the cheapest things are exact to mine, but mostly). Have a nice week! Kat xx

Apartment inspiration 2015

apartment inspo

apartment inspo by katgorostiza featuring wooden wall art

Lately I have been over Pinterest and Tumblr looking through apartment ideas- am I moving to a new house?
No, but as they say, dreaming is free, and I like to dream about my ideal apartment quite a lot. I actually think it´s pretty insane in my case haha.
I have come across lots and lots of minimalist but amazing ideas on how to decorate my dream apartment. I´m quite into the small studio kind of thing, with not so many types of furniture but with neutral colours and pretty Tumblr-ish looking (if that makes any sense?).
For example, the NY, PARIS and other cities´ names on the wall, pretty pictures of different places, a jar full of chocolate biscuits... these are some of the small things I like to look at when I´m bored, instead of an empty wall (when it comes to the biscuits, I like to eat them, let´s be real here haha).
When it comes to the furniture itself, as I have previously said, I prefer neutral colours- such as beige, grey, etc- as these make me feel calm and with a positive aura.
What would your house look like if you could decorate it as you wanted? Let me know! Kat xx

Fringes have leveled up in an extreme way in the past seasons- they have been worn and styled up in some new ways that I never thought of and they look really fun in bags, jackets and boots mostly. 
They make your look feel pretty relaxed and fun, which is what really attracts me- as you may already know, I´m more into the laid-back style, so this touch to the outfits is perfect to make me fall in love with them. Also it gives you a really cool look for festivals, which makes fringes a must-have for the Coachella or Lolla Pallooza days.
The best thing is that fringes can be worn during all the seasons, so it isn´t something that you are going to keep in your wardrobe for half of the year.
As I cannot upload any pictures of my outfits (I broke my phone, once again), I will mainly make posts like this to keep you updated on my style.
If you have some problems with how to style fringed clothes or bags or accessories, here you have some ideas that I came up with :) xx

Fashion week outfits // September 2015

Long time no see! Since I have started school (ugh, must I add) I have been really busy for anything actually, I haven´t been much on polyvore or on my blog and that makes me sad. It´s difficult trying to catch up with your blog and stuff when you actually need to catch up with your new school! (Yes, I changed schools so that I could learn more about design and fashion, so even though I am not here making posts, I am still in the designing and fashion world)
And of course, better late than never, right? I really hate the fact that school starts just when the fashion weeks come to brighten up our post-summer days, and now that it´s getting quite chilly I thought of my dream outfits that I would wear if I wasn´t attending school right now.
I really missed the cozy jumpers and boots, but the new trend of capes is killing me!I´m glad designers brought them back, mostly because I can´t wait to get one in my hands as they are a simple but chic sample of the fashion world.
Here I have some ideas of the past days for fashion week! Xx
