Thursday

don't you get off on it.

a little sneak peek of an outfit post to come soon.

tag from the lovely L from tjejsajten;

Describe your personal style: modern vintage.

What are the staples in your wardrobe? black tights, pashminas, a boyfriend blazer, slouchy sheer tees, cheap mondays, bandage skirts, floral dresses, oversized cardigans, tight leggings, vintage boots,
black lace bras.

What's your signature look? messy hair, american apparel basics in monochrome colours, a huge pashmina scarf wrapped multiple times around my neck, topped off with vintage jewellry & accessories; usually bags, sunnies, shoes.

What inspires you? the fashionable people on city sidewalks & whatever song my ipod shuffles to next.

Who is your fashion muse? "going out & getting dressed up at the weekend is fabulous! with a gareth pugh dress or a mad knitted outfit, you're suddenly beyond the narrow constrains of your normal everyday life." - róisín murphy.

Favorite purchase of all time? my 1970s vintage ysl heels.

Biggest splurge? weekends in nyc are always a big splurge.

Beauty routine? sunblock, ysl touche éclat, nars blusher, face stockholm lipstick in matte rod,
heavy mascara & never brushing my hair.

What jewelry do you never take off? i always take off my jewellry. but everyday i rotate through my gigantic collection of rings. mostly vintage, flea market found & given to me by mates.

What are you wishing for? a record player, leather soled brogues for the dancefloor
& a monthly rent in les nyc.

What are your obsessions? overpriced fashion magazines, street divas & cups of tea.


i tag my darling lizzy.

love, A.

Ugh, high-priced fashion magazines are a HUGE weakness for me! And I love that Roisin quote. Guh, I fall in love with her more & more.
