Grandma's Curtains


How to give your outfit that couture touch in an instant without breaking the bank? I'd say Sacha is the ultimate way to go for this: I've received their silver floral printed ankle boots last week & I've been wearing them non-stop ever-since. Rocking Grandma's curtains (how several people, mainly men, have already described my shoes) all while staying comfortable with the block heel, and original with its cool print, different on each shoe. 

Sacha Silver Platform Shoes


Last Summer, I already wrote this article about platform shoes, and it's been ever for longer that I'm obsessed with platform shoes – as you know, I'm a big big fan of basically all Nineties trends. So when I spotted this silver star-printed pair of plaform shoes on the webshop of Sacha, I fell in love at one. 

Nineties Kid


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. 

Band shirt bias

 

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...

Tweed & ankle boots


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.
