Less of the ‘minimalist’ look that I usually tend to go for, more of a city girl look. It is not often you see me in a light pair of skinny jeans, I guess it is because of the light-jeans-do-me-no-good syndrome a lot of us women struggle with. On the other hand light jeans are a very good substitute for the obvious dark jeans I always carry my behind around in.
I was wearing a DIY top, Diesel jeans, JW Anderson for Aldo shoes and holding an ABC bag.
You see, the thing with dresses is that I feel the ways to wear it are pretty limited. This dress for example only looked perfect with a pair of boots and maybe a great headscarf. Or maybe it is just my restricted brain when it comes to getting dressed with dresses. Either way, in a spur of the moment I grabbed a stanley knife and cut of the biggest part of the embroidery. Et voila, we are talking a whole new level of possibilities now.
It is not often that I get super enthusiastic by a DIY. I have tried some myself and I think the results were pretty ok, but it does not come near the DIY’s Ivania Carpio from Love Aesthetics is executing. The sliced shades she did last week -inspired by the Grey Ant The Foundry sunglasses are such an amazing find that I had to share.
