paste it n' post it


Just so you know I'm alive and well. Well, well.. (haha) I have some issues and all, don't I always, but they're not in any way related to what this blog is (supposed to be) so I'll leave it be :)

My sowed patch gave up. So I taped my shoe. Both of them, actually: the other big toe had found its way through as well. The tape won't last, though. I went to take out the garbage and I live on the fourth floor so don't get me wrong.. but they gave in already. So I might just have to find myself new blue shoes/lace-ups. Or a combination. Or both.

Now I'll have to study for a French grammar test.. They're so stupid because the explanations are in French. So if you don't get French, you simply look at the explanation and.. oh no!
(I'm not bad at French but grammar is just horrible in whatever language..)

Nightie night :)

going cheap


Vogue UK November 09 'Greatest Hits' I was flicking through this in the store (no chance of buying it for near 10 euros, sorry) and loved this look. It was easy and sailor and stripy and you must know I'm a sucker for stripes. Then I looked at the shoes. I felt I needed a pair of those. Then I looked at the price, and discovered that the world of fashion and magazines is going the right way. Because among all those other pieces in it that were all 'just above' 100 pounds, these shoes are 2. 2! At Primark! Even I could afford that.

Speaking of bargains (which is a loose term), we went shopping today.. or actually we were there for groceries but had to stop at this cheap-o store 'Bristol' for just a quick peak. We found out you could stuff the entire collection in bags and get 20% off. So we did that. And actually this feels way better than H&M because you're pretty sure no one else has got it ;)


A spencer: this is something I've been looking for for a while now and I found one in the boy's section :D boys rock. (14,40)


A Jimi Hendrix shirt! It isn't all too clear in this picture but it's really an amazing thing :) (12,00)


A basic red/grey striped shirt and I'm going to ask my friend to put the Beatles logo on it! (8,00)

Also I bought a really cool dres but the picture and the no-body in it really don't do it justice so you'll see it in an outfit sometime soon :) And now.. I am out of money.

May I also please tell you to answer these questions here :)

flash back or flash forward

All I showed you of this season's runways was the one Comme des Garcons picture, which I thought had gotten bad reviews but wasn't in fact true! It was Louis Vuitton who was found ridiculous but I didn't agree on that either. Anyway, since I think I should give you more than my crappy outfit shots once a week, I decided to do a quickie-review on my favorite brands and their Spring '10 RTW shows.



Moschino Cheap & Chic I love the colors, fabrics, patterns, accessories, pieces! Everything! It's so playful, as always, and wearable as well as just inspirational.



Marc Jacobs Marc did okay I suppose, but some things were just slightly 'off' and I didn't like the pyjama pants a lot. The shoes simply confused me. There were some really good dresses in there but you had to look for them. Not his best.



Chanel I think this might have been the most memorable show of the season because of the original setting and all. It gives it the spring feel that is kind of missing for the outfit colors, but I guess that's a trademark, the black and white. I did like the looks: they were Chanel no doubt but still again unique and new. I thought the clogs were very cool, and the white tights with stripes too. Could we DIY that? ;)



Viktor & Rolf I found I should add these amazing guys to my favorites because they're so creative and outstanding.. I'm so proud of our country 'sniff'.. A Viktor & Rolf idea of wearable is quite different from the public's. But you gotta love it. The color schemes were really springish but still 'sober' (meaning not over the top) which delivered some great things. I especially loved the rose shoes! There were a few pieces, though, that were probably a great idea on paper but in execution a little less. The impression I got from the total was 'modern, silk angels' which is to me a pretty lovely concept.



Emanuel Ungaro I'm actually not at all familiar with his work but when I'd heard Lindsay Lohan was the new creative editor here I had to take a look. I always found she has a great sense of style, though the last I've seen of her it was all leggings and I'm not the greatest fan of those. Anyway, I don't know how much influence a creative editor has on the final result, but I actually liked this show! The colors and patterns especially stood out to me and of course not everything was perfect, but the overall thing seemed pretty good to me. I do have to say that, in contrast to the V&R collection, 'ready to wear' is maybe an understatement here. Then again there's nothing wrong much with a simple look once in a while :)

i'll tell you what


Cardigan, Benetton. Shirt, C&A. Skirt, H&M. Leggings, H&M. Ski socks, ?

I found out this is the last outfit I photographed, being also the only one since my last post. Which has been ages ago.
Tomorrow I have a chemistry test, Tuesday a physics test, Wednesday a French test and I wouldn't be surprised if the last two weekdays I have tests too. At my school they just adore these kind of practical jokes.

So school, friends and crushes (no just one :p) are taking over me. No time for dressing left. Do you know how horrible that sounds??

I don't blame you for abandoning me, I'm just hating the fact that I'll have to get all my 20 (or even more :o) visitors back someday, somehow. And I haven't checked bloglovin' for WEEKS so I might just be walking around totally old-school without even noticing :') wount that be funny.

So here's an ANNOUNCED break. Pause. Vacation. Name it whatever. I'm gone for a while again now. G'bye. X.
