Cold shoulder

Just the one. This off the shoulders trend isn’t going away, might as well embrace it! I am obviously joking, do it only if you like it. I am a firm believer a girl shouldn’t follow all trends, just the ones one fancies or can actually wear (due to personal shape).

I do think this one is cute, not worth investing too much, but cute nevertheless. I also think it needs to be done with a reasonable amount of taste, otherwise one risks falling into “trash” territory….

The icon for this kind of top is of course Brigitte Bardot,original but I have never been a fan of “girly girls”, I tend much more for androgynous….I don’t mind a little femininity though here and there. You know those women who, even if wearing something sexy or frilly don’t look overwhelmingly feminine ? (or “tarty” some of the time, again, due to body shape too).

 

I find this TOPSHOP blouse quite flamboyant yet tasteful. Perfect match with jeans but also great with a pair of soft tailored trousers or a midi skirt, I would certainly wear this top:

I would lose the ’80’s haircut though!!

ITEM 1

I know…. I have been taking time off without saying a word… but hey! this is not my job, so, if I don’t feel like writing, well, that’s the way it is.

BUT, here I am, still effected by a certain degree of laziness though, so I am only going to post ITEMS I like, and with very little in the way of writing….Here’s today’s:

The (Gucci) loafer

I have always wanted a pair of Gucci loafers but I will never own a pair. Today, I have come across a much cheaper pair which I think would be an alternative to them:

TOPSHOP KARTER Loafer in black

They are nothing like the real thing, but hey! they are a fraction of the price and the shape is there. I also always love a great denim skirt, which, surprisingly enough (!!) looks very nice with loafers…

And if you want to stand out a little more:

Or the other way around, mix the light skirt with the garish shoes and do very classic with dark & dark…

(if you can buy the real shoe though, do so!! Just not the hairy one please)
