As you may have noticed on several occasions, I love falling back on trends from the nineties, such as chokers, crop tops, fish tights and several other trends. One of the trends I've never understood and I've always refused to wear is wearing a t-shirt underneath your dress. I remember aged 7 or 8, I was shopping with my Mum and there was this spaghetti strap dress I really liked, but my Mum told me I could only wear this dress with a t-shirt underneath, and the shop owner completely agreed. I blankly refused to do so, went home without the dress, and have refused to wear a shirt under my dress on every single occasion in my life, whether it was my Mum suggesting so, or when one or two years ago every single fashion blogger was wearing this trend.
I've always been a great fan of classic rock, with a hint of metal at times, but my style has always been very pink, feminine, with lots of frills, always wearing a cute little blouse instead of a large-cut shirt. Ever since living in London two years ago my style has switched more to the "dark side", adding leather, fish nets, large shirts and tartan to my wardrobe, and I've also found myself being obsessed with band shirts. Good thing they're very popular at the moment, which allows me to expand my band shirt collection. However, I still get the side-eye whenever wearing one of my band shirts...
In a world where Zara seems to dominate every fashionista's wardrobe, I can't help but wonder where all these Instagramistas seem to find these gorgeous pieces & rock them so well. Whenever I try to shop at Zara it's either one big mess, I don't fit into anything (I know it's a Spanish brand, but does an XL really have to be too small / not covering my bum for me?) or the quality is depressing. I think I manage to find one piece a year at Zara, an it's usually the leftovers no-one else seems to shop.
January is coming to its end, the first month of a brand new year, it's been more than two months since my last post, and tonight, the last weekend of January, I'm back at my desk behind my good old laptop after too long of a blog silence, feeling like 2017 started ages ago while it's only been four weeks. I took some time off the blog to focus on work and plenty of other things, and those two months I felt like I was drowning. Now that my head is back above the water, back to breathing normally and settled down in my beautiful Paris, I go back to blogging.
No New Year's resolutions for me, only a lot of motivation and goals set for the upcoming months. Bigger, bolder, better, and even though I might not be as active on my blog as before, I'll still be up-to-date on my favourite social medium, Instagram. Drop your Instagram in the comments & I'll make sure to take a look! Have a lovely Sunday evening, hope you had a wonderful weekend!
When browsing SammyDress and spotting this baby blue leather jacket, I fell in love at once. I've been looking for a pastel biker jacket for ages now, never finding the right fit and/our colour, and just when I considered just giving up on my endless search, my eyes fell on this gem. I ordered a size L, and the jackets fits just perfectly!
