Straight into Spring

IMG_8800

When sweaters give way to t-shirts, pumps to flip flops and espadrilles, fur jackets go into hibernation and shorts become shorter (like I needed an excuse). Tea turns ice cold and the e-shopping for swimsuits hectic. Being a Spring child and all, this is when I feel my happiest, a case easily evident on my blossoming wardrobe. So expect LOTS of color, tons of crop tops and ALL smiles (yes, there is still room for more).

YAY for Spring

Too Pure To Be Pink

IMG_8621

But still trying.

Beautiful #DenimDays in the middle of March, crazy busy but blooming. Feeling in love with pretty much everything right now and things are only gonna get worse (how many butterfies can fit in one little stomach?). My favorite month is just around the corner and it’s always full of surprises. Time flies and I’m already missing the now. So (note to self), take a step back, eat slowly, think less and enjoy every-single-thing.

In fine: stop and smell the roses (and every other flower that comes your way).

Especially the pink ones.

Winged Creature

I can’t even begin to describe my excitement; I’m actually sporting fringing, pailettes and glitter, all in one outfit. And not looking like a circus (or am I?). Either way, this is fun and I’m happy as a clam. I love grey but adding this vibrant yellow to the mix makes everything better.

The sun is shining, my hair is blonde, my endorphins are going nuts.

I’m walking out for love.

Anticipating

IMG_7889

April.

Until then I’m playing it safe in my trusted leather biker, cool (and signed) Stan Smiths and -everytime even more- ripped denim.

And since I don’t (currently) have the pleasure of owning THAT tulle Chloe skirt to gracefully place over my jeans, a modest Topshop asymmetric top will do the “skirt over pants” trick, like our very own Style Messiah aka Leandra Medine (bonus the uberstylish Yasmin) has shown us.

The way is LAYERING IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT.

Free Lollipops

IMG_7734

Legalize lollipops.

For they bring back the happy days, Lolita veiled behaviours, girly manners and all things sweet and sticky. Care free, brain free, a full on sweeteners little act, an eternal sunshine for the tongue that is oh so good.

Let’s wear heart shaped sunglasses and produce strawberry kisses.

“We all have such fateful objects — it may be a recurrent landscape in one case, a number in another — carefully chosen by the gods to attract events of specific significance for us: here shall John always stumble; there shall Jane’s heart always break.”
― Vladimir NabokovLolita

Count the dots

And don’t forget the pearls. In a casual haze of grey, white and black and matching Damien Hirst -ish- dots ( that remind me too much of M&Ms), I am proudly showing off my new Catys (can Celine ever go wrong?) and orange lipstick cause I’m feeling matchy matchy.

Who said sweat pants are only for sweating? Roll them out, style them up, bring them on.

Beachbums unite.

Bows Over Bros

IMG_7245

Not your every day Hello Kitty bows, girly yes but on a bare back. Do the math. 

As for the boyfriend jeans, they do make you feel thinner, look thinner AND you can stash pretty much anything in those pockets (tried and tested). Givenchy anything does not need justification (“bury me in Givenchy” could easily do as my last words), so just add a pair of cat eye sunglasses (if you can do the cat eye make up even better) and go. Go go go.

A helium balloon would be nice, too.

Earn Your Stripes

IMG_6774

Not new but still quite fun. 

Dig out your (horizontal-vertical-bold-subtle and everything in between) lines and get on with some stripe on stripe or other pattern action. The print feels sexiest when worn on a bodycon garment (think secretary) but it’s Ready To Wear everywhere. So pick your striped poison, add some thrill in the form of funky accessories or absolute lack thereof and sway. Mix with profusion or stay safe with a monochrome cropped sweater but whatever you do, think beyond basic.

And earn your stripes.

Subliminal

IMG_6743I’m very into neon grass right now. And subliminal erotica.

Random manifestation of this act would certainly be (at least in my book) a dusty pink pencil (very) lace skirt and fur sandals that could easily double as slippers. Dita Von Teese slippers. Keeping the rest of the outfit minimal (grey ex boyfriends t shirt that he hasn’t asked for) and ancient denim jacket with custom embroidery. I would sew my name on everything if I could.

I really would.

Too pure to be pink

IMG_6414

Frenchy: Doody, how do I look?

Doody: Like a beautiful blonde pineapple!

Rizzo: [singing] I don’t steal and I don’t lie / But I can feel and I can cry / A fact I bet you never knew / But to cry in front of you / That’s the worst thing I could do.

Danny: Uh, I’m not very hungry; just gimme a double Polar Burger wit’ everything and a cherry soda wit’ chocolate ice cream.

Danny: [singing] I got chills / They’re multiplyin’ / And I’m losing control / Cause the power you’re supplying / It’s electrifyin’.

Frenchy: What do you guys think of Sandy? Do you think we can let her into the Pink Ladies?

Rizzo: Nah, she looks to pure to be pink!

Cause the outfit might be grey but my heart is pinker than this wall.
