Aphrodite 's Thoughts:

Hello everyone!=)

I’m a bit late to wish you a good day, sorry.=( We walked the doggies, ate some Kebab/had tea, played games and ended up staying there for 5 hours! It was fun though, didnt laugh that hard for a while.=) When did you last laugh till you cough and have stomach pain? I hope the answer is not 300 years ago.=)

Anyway, to make it up to you, i’m giving you 3 outfits today.=) This is my little entry for the Wardrobe Remix Contest.=) Like the first attempt, i styled the favourite item and tried to come up with 3 styles/trends i love. Which means you can use one piece and get 3 styles all looking very different and so you can rock 3 trends if say you only had one top- maybe you didnt have time to wash, or you’re on a 3 day trip/holiday, or you simply wanna make a point-that you can repeat an item and look different each time. There are a dozen ways to style this top as the colour is quite versatile-it will work with most things. But i decided to style it using the 3 trends i have been exploiting lately. =)

OUTFIT 1: Smart Casual/Tropical Corporate/Safari Chic
BY: Chloe (mainly) and also done by Valentino, Celine, Kenzo, Loewe, Paul & Joe, Jil Sander, Tommy Hilfiger, Oscar Dela Renta, Phi, Sportsmax and Aquascutum
TIP- Stick to brown family and play/mix with different shades or settle on one and just add some interesting prints or other outside colors. And the more Masculine the better, with some cat prints or stilettos to add sex and femininity. One good thing with it is that it’s one look which you can rock if you are not sure about the day’s schedule, you can wear it to work, then to the unplanned (?) shopping trip, then to dinner (to get the energy back from all the walking, and fitting, and carrying bags) then finally to get that one drink just to keep the gang happy.=) And yes, you can still wear it (minus the shoes, jacket and bag) while feeding the cat, having tea and checking Chictopia.=)
WEARING:
Transparent Postcard Paris Sunglasses- Prada
CHESTNUT SILK TOP WITH GOLD BUTTONS ON SHOULDERS- ZARA
Beige Boyfriend Jacket- Zara
Beige High waisted shorts with gold buttons- Michael Kors
Black Caviar 1994 shoulder bag- Chanel
Red oversized ring- f21
Two tone open toe ankle boots- River Island

OUTFIT 2- Military
BY: Balmain (mainly) and also done by Dior, LV, Comme Des Garcons, John Galliano, Jean Paul Gaultier, Stella McCartney, Isabel Marant, barbara Bui, Max Mara, John Richmond, Iceberg, Marc Jacobs and believe it or not Diane Von Furstenberg!
TIP- Wether the color or the design, it’s easy to do. You can do sexy, casual and tough, depending on your mood or the activity. It’s one time, now, that you can even wear it with sequins, glitters, lace, pearls, silk, chiffon, gold, silver, cats—-oh anything you fancy! So i think we should take advantage of that and just enjoy it while it lasts.=) Unlike the Smart Casual, Military is for everyone. Young and old, girly or androgynous, macho or Freddie, Simple or Brave etc. And yes, who doesnt want to be in the army, even just for one day?=)
WEARING:
Military Green Shirt with epaulettes- Zara
CHESTNUT SILK SHIRT WITH GOLD BUTTONS ON SHOULDERS- ZARA
Black high waisted shorts- Mango
Gladiator heels- Mango
Black leather Bayswater bag- Mulberry

OUTFIT 3- New Vintage/Avant Garde (Boater and Maxi skirt)
BY: Rochas and Ann Demeulemeester (Mainly) and also done by Yohji Yamamoto, Tsumori Chisato, Rochas, Antonio Marras Y3, Marios Schwab.
TIP- Ok, i have to admit this one’s a bit tricky. My look is a combination of the two (Boater and Maxi skirt with Junya Watanabe’s Brogues) my modern take on Coco Chanel with a bit of help from Vogue US magazine (Float On). But let’s forget about my little look and talk about a more normal one, shall we? =)
New Vintage- It’s one look that some might not want to wear because maybe they are surrounded with people who would tease them and say “You look so grandma!” (One of my favourite looks!), you cant spend the rest of your life educating people about the beauty of vintage. So to those who dont want to be teased, wear the boater hat (which always raised eye brows in some places where the only existing hats were baseball caps and a Police Hat.) with a half NOW half VINTAGE outfit. Going all the way is great but like i said, some people dont want the aggravation. A nice peice from Mama maybe plus an on trend/current/modern/normal one and add the boater to make you feel like you are in the late 19th century while playing with your Blackberry.
Avant Garde- Anything that pushes the boundaries, for anyone who is willing to suffer (enjoy) the extra attention. Only 1 out of 10 (if you’re lucky) would wear the maxi skirt (Maxi dresses are always a hit/sold out and seen everywhere.) Why, cuz it’s a bit difficult to wear- Height and Size and the fact that it is not a popular choice in the streets. So the only thing i can say is that you have a serious conversation with youself, do you really wanna wear it, and if the answer isa sure yes, then you can start from there and the thing is, once you’ve decided and wore it out, the 2nd time would be as easy as ABC. The fact that it’s not an ordinary outfit gives you the freedom to experiment, cuz it wont get any weirder anyway.=)
WEARING:
Black boater hat- Zara
CHESTNUT SILK SHIRT WITH GOLD BUTTONS ON SHOULDERS- ZARA
Black belt- Accessorize
Black Maxi Skirt
Black+White Brogues- Topshop
Gold rings- f21
Black Caviar 1994 shoulder bag- Chanel

That’s it really, i hope you liked the looks.=)

Have a good sunday everyone!!!!=)
