Think Pink

Skirt & Top // CHICWISH
Bag // Missguided (old), similar here
Black pom-pon // thanks to A&M Fashion Culture
Shoes // ASOS (old), similar here

October is already here and it's that time of the year that we have to talk about Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention. Last year, I had my first mammogram and I shared my experience with you here. Not pleasant, but absolutely necessary.

I have two cases in my close family where, on the one hand, prevention saved a life more than once, but on the other, negligence almost costed a life. Almost, thank God, however left behind significant damages... I believe in prevention, I preach prevention, I live with prevention. So far, so good. I suggest you do that to. Love your bodies, love yourselves, stay healthy and strong and enjoy life.

Visit your gynecologist and ask them everything you need to know about this subject.
Prevention saves lives, so, in October we 'Think Pink'!

Carrie Bradshaw // Favorite Looks

Carrie Bradshaw has inspired thousands of women with her unique, outstanding style, including myself. Mixing patterns, fabrics and styles, she is a true inspiration to me and on the top-10 of my best dressed list of on-screen characters. So, here is a tribute to my personal favorite looks of Carrie.

Le Chat Noir

Bag // ASOS (old), same here
Beret // Stradivarius, same here
Ballerinas // ZARA Kids (DIY*), similar here
  *coming soon

I wanted to wear this bag so badly, so the inspiration of this outfit was that cute black sleepy cat. When I think of cats, I think of romance. When I think of romance, I think of Paris (and there you have your French title). When I think of Paris, I think of ballet flats and berets and romantic dresses! And this was the most simple and quick way to reveal my inspiration process...

Now, about the ballet flats with the tulle ribbon. These are from ZARA Kids. They come up to size 38 (I am a 36). The idea came to me the moment I saw them and I am preparing a DIY post for you my darlings so that you can make them too for yourselves or for your daughters or both! It's inexpensive and amazingly easy so stay tuned!

Fall 2015 Prêt-à-Porter // Balenciaga


Some serious inspiration from Balenciaga's ultra feminine looks for this Fall. Loved the furry details (hope they are faux...) and the slim, high-waist designs in black, white and grey

The Slits

Dress // ZARA, similar here & here
Bag // Vintage, similar here
Heels // Sante Shoes (old), similar here
Belt // ASOS

Although I am a colorful girl, a black dress is always welcomed in my closet. It's a classic and never goes out of style. This one made the cut for one reason, two actually: the slits, one on the front and the other on the back. 

I love slits, I find them sexy and elegant if they are: 1. discreet, 2. show not too much skin and 3. the rest of the body is covered, well, most of it... The fact that this dress had long sleeves also played a significant part in my decision. The metallic gold belt and the lace up heels added some extra glamour to the look.

Would you go for the slit? And where would like it/them to be?
