Here are last week's outfits, Thursday not included, since I was sick...
Oh, and I have a new haircut! The hairstylist went a bit too "scissors happy", and cut a lot, but it'll grow back. In the meantime I am enjoying the short time needed to dry it!
Dress, Pepe Jeans,
Cardigan, random store in Buffalo
I wore the dress with a cardigan because it was cold, and because I thought the beige color would soften the loudness of the dress.
Cutout: here is who did it best, in my opinion, without showing too much!
Gucci Hervé Lèger by Max Azira
Floral - oh so spring-y!
Skirts - these were very chic looks I adored:
AF Vandervost Enrico Coveri
Tommy Hilfiger (and I don't even like him that much!)
Trench -this really is a classic for spring.
Burberry Prorsum (both)
D&G Ermanno Scervino
Nude - I think this is a bit tricky: the secret is choosing a shade that goes well with your skin tone, but is not the same - otherwise it washes out all of your features. This I think is especially true for blondes.
Elie Saab Valentino
Other interesting trends - if well done, and in small doses:
I was reading the Glamour Special on the spring/summer runaways.. Found some very interesting trends (if you would say so: lots of things, in my opinion, are on trend always, such as trench coats), and some looks I am not even gonna consider...
Here's what I liked:
White: so cool and refreshing for the warmer months....
D&G Moschino Cheap & Chic
Ermanno Scervino Sportmax
Pois are fun when well done (otherwise they fall into the "clown" cathegory). Here are some of the best examples:
Jason Wu (really love this!)
Vitaminic colors: so very summery...
Military - one of my favourite trends!
Sportmax Stella McCartney
Fluo: this look, from Andrew Gin, shows it really well!
Here are a couple of outfits from last week. I didn't take a picture every day, so this is all I have:
This dress was an impulse buy from Mango. And I am glad I bought it, since it's very versatile, comfortable, and I have worn it a lot. Purple tights were a Christmast present (last year) from young sister, the turtleneck and necklace are from street vendors. And my Frau boots!
I tried this dress from Max & Co., and fell in love. It's a soft, silky material. It was not cheap, even on sale, but I think it's so well made and flattering that I'll wear it for years. I am thikning of pairing it with some blue cardigan, I should try to find one...
Gray tights are from a long time ago, probably Target, circa 2005. I don't use them much, so they are still new. Turtleneck was a find from street vendor. The necklace was a Christmas gift from a colleague, a very pretty heart with pearls. And the usual Frau boots.
Thoughts on the Ex-Factor, from Sarah Von. I am never too sure on how to relate to my exes, and she offers some food for thoughts in there.
In a winter rut? Nonsense, says Liv. Here's what to do.
Kaileenelise reminds us that, to make our dreams come true, we need to nurture them and tend to them, as if they were a "tiny and precious garden". Oh, so true!
Luinae wrote a short list of all the small steps she wants to take to make her dream come true. She wants to be an artist. However, I find these suggestions really adaptable to many other areas/jobs/lives, as long as you really want to make it!
