I was wearing my catprint dress with my birdpin because I thought it would be a cute juxtaposition, and then my kitten started being all cuddly and cute and it wouldn’t leave me alone so he ended up in virtually every shot I took, which worked quite well with my cat print dress! So no, I did not plan this but it ended up working nicely.
My bag is absolutely AMAZING, don’t you agree? I told you guys I had been fawning over it over at the Zara online shop for weeks, but it didn’t show up in our Zara, and then suddenly, tuesday, there it was! It really is the perfect bag. I love how it’s brown and black so it goes with both, and it looks so classy and expensive and girly and perfect. I placed it on our dining table and kept glancing over and felt butterflies in my stomach every time I layed eyes on my pretty bag.
I’m also totally enamored by my greasy messy hair. It almost looks like Alexa’s, don’t you agree? Key to perfect Alexa Chung hair: don’t wash it too often.
This is one of my favorite looks I’ve done lately, I just love everything about it: the socks, the shoes, the bag, the cardi, the dress, the cardi, the birdpin, my make up (cat eye, very appropriate): love it all. And yes, I’m wearing nude sheer stockings, it’s just too cold for bare legs but I wanted the bare leg effect with socks. These H&M stockings almost have the same coloring as my own proper legs so they are perfect.
I ended up finishing a project I’d been laying off for months yesterday. I bought an oversized lace top in the sales at H&M (this one ) and I wanted it to be a lot smaller and more cropped but somehow I couldn’t bring myself to actually cutting into the fabric, which is VERY unlike my impulsive self. But yesterday I altered it while watching Fresh Prince of Bel Air reruns, and I love it a lot more now. I’ll be wearing it soon!
I’ve also been mailing with this gorgeous creative girl at Etsy to get myself a perfect flower crown, check out her cute little shop, littlehoneypies – everything she makes is just so pretty and perfect and very moderately priced to boot!
