The last (neurotic) romantic

My internet is back and I feel whole again!
I swear to you, guys, the internet addiction of our generation is bad, I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown and I was cut out (literally - an assface cut the internet wire) for a bit over 30 hours - I felt completely empty inside :))))))))))))))).
The good thing is I cleaned my apartment, finished a book, modified two dresses, made myself a ring and actually cooked something (after work that is:). I can’t even imagine what I could do if I wasn’t connected to the World Wide Web for a week.
The superstars of the world are super lucky I’m not, otherwise they should SO watch their backs:)))

On the dressing front I feel the compulsive need to wear floral prints. I don’t know what came over me but I can’t control myself. I hope you’re in the mood for some print mixing because this outfit is all about that. I got so many stares wearing this you’d think I was naked or something.

I have this soft floral blouse for a long time, Sara bought it in high school and I still love it, especially the interesting back. The cute hat is vintage, I just added the colored bow to give it a little something extra.

Everybody loves the hat, I’m pretty sure Denisa (who gracefully took all the photos) has a complicated and effective plan to steal it from me in motion right now (she does look amazing wearing it). The socks have a double role in the outfit: a visual/stylistic effect and a comfort/bumper effect as these heels are a bitch to walk in.

I kind of went overboard with the pictures but the background was strangely beautiful, I’ll admit it, I was having a little bit of a "Great Expectations”  fantasy while posing!:))))

 Excuse my tanning lines, me and direct sun exposure are not great friends!:)))))
I’m wearing:
skirt, belt, bag, hat - vintage
 socks – H&M
 heels - New Look
 blouse, rings – random brand

Stilettostetico said...

WOow There is a giddy vibe of floral Freshness in your outfit, in which this subtle back cleavage (faultlessly) achieves to infuse a lot of Sensuousness !!!
ps: Your hieratic prestance effortlessly dazzles Here I (shyly) must add Dear . . .

à Bientôt, Antoine

I love this mixed florals. My favorite though is the pink socks in the black strappy heels. Looks great.
I always get looks when I wear ankle socks with open toed heels. My city is so not ready or aware of that trend.
The back of the blouse is very cool.
Loving your vintage style purse as well.
Thank you so much for visiting/following my blog.
I like your blog as well.
