Not single but ready to mingle, then.. I met her…

Dear Fair People,

FullSizeRender

I met a dress last week. She looked (yes, a lady, no doubt) very sweet, a little sophisticated and not a bit old.

FullSizeRender[1]FullSizeRender[2]

Well actually, she was. The lady is 30 years old.

I met her at a homesale from Fabulous Fair Fashion last week, when I snooped in the 2nd- hand department. There she was : 30 years old, the only one of her kind, so single and ready to mingle! What can I say?

With my crib in the eighties.. I feel there’s a connection. I now wear her with love, a naughty apple and vintage kitten heels that I’ve bought at DOEK pop-up

Accessorize your day!

Hi fair ladies,

I’m here to brighten your day with some great accessories.

I wore plain black pants with a white shirt + lovely Alice in Wonderland- Quote (yes I still feel the little Alice in me sometimes) and accessorized it with a headband, a scarf and a geometric necklace.

Enjoy ladies 🙂

A sweater and a (Girlie) skirt, really?

Dear Fair ladies,

This week I’d like to present you the result of a styling session I did to prove that sweaters do fit with -in my case- a girlie skirt.

I admired the look from Elena Borden and Elisa Nalin in Elle and what I loved about it was the mixture of nonchalance and sweet chic so I went for it myself…
IMG_0718I started my look…with an ethical sweater from Les Gens de Labas and a Belgian designed skirt from Odette en Ville

Wearing my heels and having no sleep

A sneak peak in my calendar learned me that my weekends give a pretty good overview of my life as it is. Saturday Afternoons are for baby visits with coffee and treats; Saturday Nights stands for parties with cocktails. Both events in heels off course. So after the laughing, the cuddles and the whispers, the sweets, the cocktails and the treats, both events left me tired and with unhappy feet.

So that’s where I stand…somewhere in a place between babies and parties. I couldn’t tell which event made me happier. Both trips offered me loud noises, headache and almost no sleep.. making me wonder: is having a baby like having a party? (That is : If I’m allowed to drink cocktails either way of course, just to be clear!)

Somewhere in the beginning of my twenties, this phrase would have let me choke in an olive at the bar.. but now in my late twenties, it looks more like a party invitation..

So now, will I attend?

I shopped in a Fashionista’s closet!

Dear Fair ladies,

I’ve talked with you about a couple of tricks to consume in a smarter and more fairer way. Because when you feel the urge to shop, there are still a lot of fair possibilities, one of them is shopping in another Fashionista’s closet, as you can read HERE 

About that..I’d like to share some outfits I made with a vintage Escada blazer I bought on Fashionup from another Fashionista (Blogster) : Lima Ché

I styled it in 2 different ways :
