While shooting for Elle at Nicole's apartment the other day, I saw this amazing gray colored softness peeking out of one of her cupboard drawers. I just had to take a closer look.
Taken into consideration that I personally don’t wear too much brightness on a regular basis, this might sound a bit odd. But what I find the most inspiring - over anything else - is when I see fellow fashion enthusiasts passing by in unexpected color combinations. Something that I wouldn’t even throw together if I did wear multiple colored ensembles. Something though that works like magic.
Joanna Hillman does not only have impeccable layering skills, she knows her shades pretty well too. (And with shades I don’t mean her choice in the sunglasses department.) Back in Paris during Fashion Week, I saw her rocking this striped long sleeve, mixed with a light brownish blazer, camel tuxedo pants and a desaturated red/orange floral scarf.
Bold words coming from someone who doesn’t do brown, but I think this is brilliant!
After two beauty posts here on afterDRK, it is time to properly introduce myself. Hi!
Remember the 6 Spring Beauty Essentials and my avowal about their potential? A promise made is a debt unpaid. That’s why I decided to use my first cameo to demonstrate the potential of the beauty products I discussed before. Please bare with me.
One face, six products, three Spring beauty looks: let’s go!
They make me think of the long summers I used to spent in Italy when I was little, building sand castles in flirty colorful dresses and eating gelato until I nearly died from multiple food babies. (Pistachio being my favorite flavor back then.) To stick to those childhood memories and to channel my inner mini-me, I decided to attach a playful hint in the shape of a charm from my baby bracelet to my anklet. Yes it's a sheep. Don't ask.
I have to say I wouldn't wear it with heels because double femininity is just not my thing and I feel like it could get an itsy bit tacky.
Anklet, bought from a random jewelry store (but Asos has a few nice ones too).
After seasons of seeing minimalism and less is more just about anywhere/everywhere, it is time for some more excitement in our sartorial lives. Time for more guts, perhaps even in the form of prints. Now I know this was part of my New Years resolutions list, but I haven't been able to completely live up to it daily. Probably due to the fact I still very much work from home, which brings along laziness when it comes to getting dressed in the morning, but...I am ready for it!
