Just casual and comfy. I have been obsessed with knit sweaters and cardigans, especially when combined with thin slik-like material. This is pretty much the closest I could get with my closet. But I also love the resurgence of my old colour-blocking tendency here. Sweater by & Other Stories from last year, Issey Miyake dress and Orla Kiely shoes from ebay.

it’s called fashion?

Feeling stressed? Overworked even though it seem to do, or to achieve nothing? Unmotivated and empty inside? Aimless? It’s stress! (Probably) Lavendar or yoga might help but in most cases therapy will be your best bet. And good news: you will still feel stress. One way to alleviate (or suppress – it depends) is a good mindless distraction. One that keeps you interested and occupied so your mind will stop racing, but something without too […]

backlog

From a while back. I got these Ann Demeulemeester boots second hand while just casually browsing for second hand knee high boots because I have wanted some good ones for ages and then all of a sudden straight out of my dreams these pop up! I got them in the mail and I haven’t gone outside without them since. Cute comfy cool, a perfect excuse to forgo tights in this mild winter. The sweater is […]

Walk up in my high heels all high and mighty

I love Mitski’s new album. I hear country, shoegaze, synth, indie pop,… From one moment to another often just in one short burst of a song. But mostly every listen I hear something new a mix if it all and all I don’t know. She’s coming to Belgium soon, I should probably go. Anyways, I think I got this dress last year and practically wore it all summer. It looks even neater with my blue hair. […]

oh hello

Apparently this is my first legit outfit pic of 2018 and my face looks kinda dumb but whatevs; it is what it is. Anyways, one of my hobbies/coping mechanisms when I get anxious is to window shop (on eBay) for a couple of my fave designers. Mainly I go looking for: Issey Miyake, Walter Van Beirendonck, specific designers of Comme des Garçons such as Junya Watanabe, Ann Demeulemeester (I’ll never get my hands on those […]

I said to myself, you can’t shatter open

“I said to myself, you can’t shatter open.” A sentence in Esme Weijung Wang’s The Border of Paradise. I told myself this often enough, I cannot shatter; even the smallest cracks weren’t allowed. And then. Not cracks. No shattering. Disintegration. Myself, my world and the chilling after-waves, still rippling across everyone and thing I was near. Some after-waves choking and drowning some, sometimes happily or sacrificially so. Time, opportunities, trust: long since washed away. It’s a […]

new song

I love this dress. I got it because it felt work appropriate and I’m always trying to find a balance between work and fun in my clothes. Reading the sartorial guidelines on a possible new job opening……. I am very much off the mark. Haha! It’s way too short and of course I cannot ignore my instinct to pair it with bright colours (so bright here). Oh well. No job yet. Maybe a break instead. […]
