Ok, so it has taken me forever to write a new post, but here it is:
First of all, Paris was great. The hotel was amazing as it's location was utterly convenient, and it's interior made me feel like I was sleeping in a giant Versaillesque dollhouse. I already showed you some of the photographs I took in the previous post (and thanks everyone for leaving such nice comments about them!) and here are a couple more: http://www.flickr.com/photos/carbon_monoxide/
When I returned from Paris, having bought nothing more than some underwear and a striped cardigan, I convinced myself that it was ok to indulge in some (online) shopping to acquire those much needed essentials. Like a pair of creme coloured converse sneakers for spring (haven't owned a pair of those in years), a couple of lightweight v necks, and a loose silk cardigan. Yet I still feel like I'm nowhere near wardrobe completion. Sometimes I think that I'm never going to reach the point of having that perfect wardrobe I'm so "desperately" aiming for...
I've also been once again thinking about which direction I want my 'style' to take this year (typing that out makes it sound so silly) and to be honest, I don't think it's going to change much from where it's been going during the past year. I think I have a pretty solid idea of what I like these days, and therefor I've decided that I can afford a bit of experimenting. So now I'm kind of contemplating on how I should do that. The idea is to add some sort of 'bold' piece of clothing or accessory to my wardrobe.
One potential candidate is this skirt from APC's spring collection. I love it's colour and the shape of those pockets is pretty magnificent, but it's 100% woolen and I think paying 130 euros for a woolen skirt that's meant to be worn during spring and summer isn't exactly the most sensible thing to do.
On a totally different note, has anyone checked out the Vanessa Bruno website lately? If you haven't, you really should, because it's a little piece of heaven. The new campaign featuring Lou Doillon is so stunning! And I simply love the new Athe collection! The colours, the designs, it's wonderful ♥
