BASICS

WEARING: No Brand Bomber, Topshop Crop Top Sweater, Jaggar The Label T-shirt, J Brand Jeans (DIY), Vanessa Mooney Bracelet, American Apparel Clutch.

I read the book "How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are", it is a very easy read. Normally this genre is not my type of book (I am more into classics), but my friend Aina mentioned that a lot of what the authors wrote, reminded her of me. I was intrigued and decided to give it a go. She was right, many topics were very similar to my life choices and personality in general. I never knew my behaviour was so "Parisian". It is a book of common sense, highlighting natural beauty, cultural knowledge, empowerment for women, and touches on our fragility with good humour, in an easy tone. I recommend it. Here I am with no make up, natural hair, black clothes with minimal accessories and my sunglasses. Slight variations of this style make up for my everyday wear, with self-assurance and a touch of fragility to face a new challenge everyday.
PS. My favourite look from the Oscars was from Cate Blanchett. A sophisticated minimal gown from Margiela by John Galliano, paired with a Tiffany statement necklace, if you missed it check it here.
