Feather Fetish

Feather Fetish

I have a confession to make, dear readers. In a fashion world where every woman is glued to her lipstick and addicted to her “slim fit”-jeans, there are a few fashionistas who take it one step further and develop a more “exotic” fashion addiction. As you may guess, I am one of them. My addiction? Feathers!  I honestly can’t stop buying feathery things: from feather embellished skirts and dresses, to feather jackets and collars. As well as feather boots, bags and earrings. My feather collection is absolutely enormous! For some absurd reason, I especially love black feathers, because they stand for both classiness and mystery. A black feather outfit is edgy, eclectic and elegant: three words that – in my humble opinion- represent me as a young woman.

In short, I am seriously infected with feather flu. 😉

But what about you? Are you a feather fan as well, or do you have another fashion addiction?

It’s time to SHINE!

It's time to SHINE!

Black and gold together is without a doubt the coolest combination of the season. It’s glamourous, luxurious and it adds that little touch of drama to an ordinary day at the office. If you want to take it even one step further, opt for a Baroque-style outfit in black and gold.

(Or as I like to call it: Barock ’n roll 😉 )

Still not convinced of the awesomeness of a black and gold Baroque outfit? Look at Dolce & Gabbana’s  fall/ winter collection for inspiration.

However, most of us – aka 99% of the population- can’t afford to buy a $26,600 embellished dress. So that is why I went shopping yesterday to see whether it was possible to find a low budget black and gold Baroque outfit… and guess what? I FOUND IT!!  For just 25 euros I bought this cute baroque peplum blouse at New Look. It will go perfectly  with my last year’s gold jeans !(yes, you’ve read that correctly: I am the proud owner of  gold jeans)

In short, this winter I am going to SHINE! And I want YOU to shine with me! Because when we shine, we will always find our way through darkness.

Mums know best… except when it comes to my wardrobe

7. 30 this morning. I was just about to go out the door when my mom suddenly said : “Don’t you think those shorts are a little bit too short?” But I could see in her eyes that what she actually meant was: “ Put on something else or I’m not letting you out that door!”
What followed was a very loud argument and eventually I angrily put on something else…
Now, there is something you need to know about me: Although I can handle criticism pretty well, NEVER EVER EVER dare to criticize my outfit.
Every outfit of mine is planned to detail, from accessories to the type of socks. I had been putting this outfit together for the whole bloody weekend. So when someone comments on my clothes, they don’t just comment on that, they comment on the entire creative concept. Being a true fashionista, that hurts like hell.
I love my mom, I do. I always go to her for advice and I appreciate her opinion on a lot of different matters. But fashion? No. That’s between me, my closet and my sense of style.
Hence, I still believe the outfit was RIDICULOUSLY COOL . A short black playsuit with a white collar and golden buttons. Black transparent tights with knitted over-the-knee socks. (I LOVE layering tights and knee high socks, because it adds another dimension and is fall appropriate) Black pumps and a leather jacket. Surely, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! If Alexa Chung can pull it off, well so can I!
But nevertheless, I would like to hear your opinion, fellow fashionistas! Was my mother right or not? That is the question…
