This Is The Day

Here are a few self-portraits I took in my apartment, featuring my absolute favourite vintage dress. I love wearing clothes that possess a unique vibe and a bit of history! This dress has the loveliest ethereal shape and some delightful crochet details. However, it is super fragile so it's more of a collection piece that I save for special occasions. It has more than 40 years of existence, after all. I must take great care of it!

Side note: I'm obsessed with shooting RAW and editing my pictures in Adobe Lightroom. Taking outfit photos inside my apartment is pretty hard since the lighting is quite poor, but I can fix it in Lightroom without destroying the originals. I like how these photos turned out, especially the rainbow sorbet colours of my dress! Just one thing: I should have smiled. Hehe.

Memphis Blues Again

I must admit that writing a blog post after such a long absence is incredibly bizarre - I almost feel like a stranger on my own blog. Never mind! I was going through my hard drive and found some outfit shots I took last October. It took these on a very windy day, just 30 minutes before sunset - my favourite conditions to take pictures. Even if the wind makes my hair go nuts (so. many. tangles), I love how it gives movement to clothing. With long pleated skirts, the effect is almost surreal and clearly worth the consequent hair untangling session ;)

Hello redhead my old friend + Movember!

Yup, I did it again. I guess I'll never settle down! Since trading my signature black locks for a ginger mane back in march/april, I've been trying various shades of brown, auburn, deep red and briefly went back to black after a fling with ombré hair (back then, it was down to my ribcage and I felt like a mermaid!). I even thought of dying it pastel pink around the end of summer, but I got hired at a boutique where I am not allowed to have an "unnatural" hair color. Bummer. I would have loved to style it in a cotton-candy beehive. I hope I will someday get a job that allows me to have more fun with hair color.


In another note. happy Movember! For starters, Movember is about growing a moustache to raise funds and awareness to combat prostate and testicular cancer and mental health challenges. The Mo Bros (ha!) must start the month clean-shaven, then grow and groom their moustache all through November, asking friends and family to donate to their efforts. My best guy friend is participating in this year's edition - you can donate through his team's page right here. Feel free to spread the word among your male friends so they can participate, too!

My friend (and ex-creative director) Emilie made the logo, you can read her blog here.
She's travelling Europe while freelancing. Dreamy!

Strange Magic


You guys. I had been searching for the perfect mint-colored dress for such a long time! The folks at Sway Chic were super nice to send me this skater dress to style on the blog. Isn't it lovely? I had never seen this find of fabric before: it's embossed - kind of like paper towels - and so soft! I wanted to pair the dress with a pastel green or yellow cardigan like this outfit from New Girl, but it was way too hot outside to wear extra layers. Instead, I wore it with my newest thrift store finds and added my good old flower crown and a tiny deer necklace for a touch of fun. I already have a bunch of remixing ideas involving the dress! Next time, I think I'll try to wear it as a jumper on top of a peter pan collar blouse. 

In other news: I got a job! Yay! I needed a "safe" job to combine with my freelancing and I got hired as a full-time stylist in a nearby boutique. I'm starting in September. It's a bit stressful, since I've never worked in retail before. I'm glad to have a fashion-related job, but I hope everything will be fine. Fingers crossed!
