Retro Chic

No need to check your calendars, you haven't traveled in time. The year is 2010, it's just that I wanted to try a 60-70's inspired look. The retro print dress was laying in my closet for too long now and since the weather we had in November was incredibly warm, I thought I should give it a try one last time before winter kicks in.
  I throw on a mustard scarf and high knee boots and I was ready to" Go-Go" . Wait, something isn't right here, I am not wearing white "go-go" boots and my dress isn't mini. Oh, well, then I was just ready to go.
 Sorry I am not very talkative today, but I am watching Mnet Asian Music Awards right now and I can't miss any performance.

Leopard print

Hi, or should I say Rrrrr. Today I will greet you with a roar because I am wearing my leopard print faux fur and it brings out the beast in me. I am just kidding, you know I am harmless. Take a closer look, I won't bite. So, I too was contaminated by this animal print frenzy that's been going on for a while and bought myself a leopard print fur coat.
If you are planning on buying one too, let me give you a tip because a look with an animal print coat it's very hard to pull off.  It can draw a lot of attention to yourself and you need to look your best.  First of all, you have to make sure that the rest of your outfit is pretty simple, you don't want to look too flashy, so go for basic items. Second, don't wear too much make up and style your hair in a casual way. Follow these simple steps and you are good to go, no one can confuse you with Peg Bundy now.

Over the knee socks

Hi. So, the last item that I had to show you from Topshop was this pair of over the knee socks. They are, in my opinion, PERFECT. The only problem was, my wardrobe wasn't fully prepared to welcome them, as I had no short dresses, nor skirts to show them off. Then I remembered that I had bought this military print mini skirt almost 6 years ago. Who thought that I would still fit in that? I certainly didn't think it was possible until, in a last, desperate, attempt to find something to wear, I've taken it out from the back of my closet.  Let me tell you what a great feeling is to see you can still wear your high-school clothes. 
Come to think about it, I was quite a visionary back in the days, don't you think? The military fashion trend it's still going strong after all these years but in 2005, no one gave it a chance, it wasn't until 2008 that it became popular. 
Anyway, I have been very surprised by the weather we have been having lately. Even though winter is right around the corner, it feels like it's spring here. We have record warm temperatures for this time of year, 20-25 degrees Celsius, can you believe it? I guess I am fine with it, I am not much of a winter person anyway.

Floral Boots

Hi. Remember when I told you I won the "Color Up" fashion contest at Hypeed? Due to some unforeseen circumstances, my prize had to be replaced and the kind team at Hypeed offered me the possibility to choose some items from Topshop. So, I browsed and I stumbled across these floral print boots that I found exquisite and I just knew I need to have them. Also, I chose this snood scarf , that has a beautiful mint color. Together they make a pretty good pair, don't you agree? And I still have something to show you, but I will wear it in my next post, so be sure to check that out. Thank you so much Slanelle for everything, I really appreciate it . I also want to give a big shout out to Blondie Brune. Check out this stylish, unique, French clothing brand here
