Them Apples




I'm well aware that I've worn this mustard oversize trench about 3 or 4 times on my blog but its just that its one of my favourite things to wear, it cost virtually nothing and in the name of being true to life as in blog I've got to feature it AGAIN. Do any of you style bloggers out there find it difficult to continually keep your blog updated with new pieces all the time? I find it such a drain to always create an original look... one day you'll all tune in to find 3 weeks of pictures - zanita, tee shirt, jeans.
I love fashion passionately, so I guess thats why I'm sporadically drained of inspiration, there's only so much you can give and I'm surrounded by fashion all the time.
The dress with the apples is very special to me, my Mum made it. Its the most cheerful thing I have in my wardrobe.
Love you Mum!!!

What could be more flattering than having a talented artist do an illustration of you? Thanks so much to my Finnish friend Maria at Mon Modèle for exercising her artsy muscles to create this work of me, I love it so much, much more ethereal than the original.




Anyone reading this, I think you're the greatest. X

Best outfit you have ever worn on your blog.

aww i think you're the sweetest! i know how hard it feels to keep having new things to wear coz it's a fashion blog but i usually just mix it up with photos of what's up & down in my life. or simply what i find interesting on the internet. love the tones of your pictures <3

Well I think you can check "adorable" off your list of attributes you can commit to modelling. That first shot is super cute! Technical question on the 2nd photo - how are you able to capture walking poses? Whenever I try to, even on speed settings, I end up getting the most awkward results. Any suggestions?

There's no shame in wearing things multiple times. If I'm ever blessed with opportunity to actually get the fashion side of my blog up off the ground, you'll see ALOT of repeat clothing. Sometimes there's more creativity in recreating looks in your own wardrobe than entirely new garments.As far the mustard trench, I only have one thing to say...

Wear it loud, wear it proud! :)

I wonder about reposting items but I think "fuck it" because let's be realistic - people rewear things they like! I wear the same thing almost every fucking day because I like it and feel comfortable. I won't blog it every day but you know, people expect it from a real person. You're real and have exceptional style so it's OK.

tiltumaria said...

Ooh yay you posted it :) I'm glad you liked it!

And LOVE this outfit! And I don't think it's bad to wear the same garments in photos, on the contrary. I think it becomes dull if it's just outfit after oufit with new garments, without exceptions. Seeing a person's favorite clothing tells you a bit about them and lets them get to know you a bit better in some way!

Keep up with the awesome pics and say hi to your fabulous mother! (For she must be fabulous having made that dress!)

Nana said...

are you serious?your mom did it?:D

Pascal Grob said...

yes! I kind of have the same problem. I can't create something completely new everytime or use new pieces all the time, so sometimes I really dunno what outfit to take pictures of .....

Luxe. said...

Ahhh you are so pretty! The print on the dress is so cute!!.x

Anonymous said...

you look like gweneth paltrow and blake lively in my humble opinion. and your lookbook looks are simply the greatest! love the fifties rebel one.

Coco said...

These are your best photos yet, in my opinion. By the way, I've been meaning to get back to you about that email - so sorry about the delay! I'll email you tonight. x

Crystal said...

I personally love it when bloggers post looks with items that have already been worn. I feel as though it shows their creativity and the ability to recreate an item into several looks: that to me is a true fashionista. So keep wearing that trench and recreating it! It's a great piece and should be shown off.

Love these photos btw!

That dress is gorgeous, if your mum were to make another I would definately buy it!!! I agree about the outfits, but I think its fine to have key pieces that feature over again and go with everything. :) Your blog is beautiful xxx
