Silver Summer Shades


I just got back from my Summer holidays yesterday, and whil I'm typing this blogpost I'm covered in all the blankets I could find, with my biggest cosy jumper and I'm still in utter denial about Summer coming officially to its end, and wanted to share with you this gorgeous pair of mules my favourite shoe shop Sacha sent me offer at the beginning of the season & which I wore all summer long. As you know, I'm not that much of a heel person, not only because I'm tall and tower over everyone wearing heels, but also because they hurt so, so much, and have me falling over on the street if I don't pay permanent attention. 

On these comfortable heels though, I trotted all the way through hilly Saint-Tropez, danced in Les Caves all night celebrating my birthday, all on these gorgeous mules, and not a single blister after, not a single epic fall. I'll carry on rockig the mule trend until my toes freeze off! 

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...
