Aphrodite 's Thoughts:

Hello everyone!!!!!!! =)

This is my photo before i got killed by that car behind me!!! Hehehehe! Kidding.=) The driver somehow knew how important it was for me to take that shot and stopped/waited (or maybe that’s just what i want to believe!) but he did wait for a couple of minutes while my sister was clicking as fast as a humming bird’s wing beat!! It was already getting dark and i needed my shot! Using the flash would make it look like it’s taken at night and i hate night shots. The flash destroys the colors (or again maybe that’s just me!) And like most of you, i will have a problem with this because it gets dark fast these days and it’s only autumn here where i am. You can see that our trees are still green-ish. Anyway, even if it looked a bit stupid, i liked the photo. I shouted “Thank you” to the grinning driver who first looked at my hat and then my boots. Here, you wont see anyone, girl anyway, wearing these kind of men’s inspired hats and they think only the rangers wear these boots. But like i said in one of my old posts, i might die tomorrow, so nobody can stop me wearing my hats—i will wear my hats!!!!!!!! =) Those two guys were waiting for the traffic and i am sure they were wondering what i was doing but thankful that i was! (Doing it!) =)

Anyway, the girls (my two sisters and our friend Esmira) were going to see a play (Shakespeare) sponsored by their school and i needed a reason to go out so i took them out for tea a couple of hours before the show starts. ‘Wore something simple but warm enough for the chilly November days of our city. The crazy winds are not yet here to terrorise me so the weather is still beautiful. They say that Chicago is the “Windy City”, and i think there are a couple of theories about that. But ours is called “The city of winds”. It is bad, almost evil!! During winter anyway, as it makes the weather 20 times colder than it really is. I dont like cursing, but all the bad words i know come out when the wind is like that. So yes, this is what i wore, inspired by the last pic (Stella McCartney-one of my favourites in her AW10-11 collection) but i decided to make it less sophisticated and make it more “out with the girls” mood. Nah, do you believe me? I just wanted to wear the shoes again that’s all! =) No, really, i wanted it more “Street style” than runway though i would love to do the runway version one day too. Debut of my velvet skirt (which used to be one of my dresses when i was still with the band/singing, i use to wear it all by itself, barefoot and all, just the dress and the mic (and stand). But those days are in a box (for now at least) so i took this dress out and said goodbye to it’s previous self, with my bad scissors that the man hates so much. It has a slit at the back and shows my Darcies when i walk—-i like.=) I hope you like it too.=)

That’s it really. I am off to check your looks and continue to update PANDORA’S BOX and speaking of our box, Chictopia has offered (more like allowed?) me to link my posts to the pages of Chictopia. So while you’re looking at my outfit you can also enjoy other’s (Chictopians) take on the same item. Thank you Chictopia, maybe it’s a small thing for you but really something for me. I also lost my Canon EOS 50D in Dubai (while i was shopping at H&M! I’ll tell you about it and the drama in Pandora’s Box) and i bought a Canon EOS 7D specially for Pandora’s box because it has a video-it’s for our give away so you can watch how we pick the winner(s). And i will be doing 2 giveaways soon, instead of doing 7 again like before, i decided to do 2, 2 boxes of goodies (i’m sure there something there, one at least, that you will like/be useful to you!) About 5 items or so per box (Box 1 for gaining a few more readers and Box 2 for Christmas.) And starting next year we will do one giveaway every month as my token of gratitude for keeping me company.Anyway, will talk about that more in Pandora’s Box as this is getting really long.=) Too long.

Alright, i’m shutting up!!!! =)

Omg... When I read the sentence about being killed by the car, I thought you meant that seriously, that it really happened! But that's so unlogical, hahaha. It's you who wrote the text after all! Anyway, great sweater! And I like the buttons on it, they're a nice detail. :D

londondude on November 22
OWOW! What an awesome picture! Well, I am glad that the driver did wait, mainly because a ton of metal is dangerous if it hits you. And secondly, the picture is super! I love the hat very much. Great style dear! : ) CHIC x

angiekje on November 22
love your sweater and hat!! chic!! great shots too!! happy you are alive!!
deathbyplatforms on November 22
i can totally relate to you about night shots. i get so frustrated when i see the sun setting and i still haven't gotten my outfit photos shot. i am not a fan of shots taken with a built-in flash. daytime shots are always better and come out more beautiful. love the sweater with the epaulettes! and i tried on that hat but it looked weird on me.
JennaStevie on November 22
I love the photo, that sweater is so pretty, love it. Looks great with that hat!!
vanitychick on November 22

VixieVaporous on November 22
@Donata, haha hey, I'm a Pinay myself. I'm always ready for colored hats. The rest of the populace probably don't... But this is a lovely hat, I love your striped top. Been looking for one for ages.
Donata on November 22
so inspiring! i bought a bunch of colored hats but you think the pinoys are ready for them?? =)
Chaba on November 22
