I said yes do the dress

My cousin is getting married in Rome next month and I finally managed to find a dress. I’ve been searching high and low for the past two weeks and I’m so happy that the chase is over. What made it difficult was that I did not know what I wanted to wear, only that I wanted a colorful dress. So when I saw this dress at Zara today I said “YES, I do!” 

SOD – Do You Boo

I remember once, when I was a kid, I ran home and asked my dad to buy me the same toy a friend of mine had. When he asked me why I wanted it, I said “because she got one and I want the same”. Then he told me never to ask him for something just because he or she had it “but because YOU want it”. From that day, I knew it was “safe” for me to do things differently. Because at the end of the day, that was what I wanted. 

At a young age I started dressing the way I liked and not necessarily after what was trendy. And I do the same today! Like these earrings that I found at H&M the other day, I fell in love with them so bad and send a picture to my sisters and said that they had MY name on it. Nobody agreed with me (zero out of four) but that dont change the fact that I love them! #doyouboo

  

Dj Du Style

I’ve got a new obsession to add to my list and its a capsule collection done by Izé Teixeira and Atelier Beaurepaire. These dope bombers are designed by Izé and his work is inspired by the urban lifestyle in Paris. When I asked about the name for his brand, “Dj Du Style”, he explained that for him, one can not talk about style without including art, music and culture. “At the end, we mix our influences from creative aspects to create a look, just like a Dj who mix different tracks to create a cool sound”.

Time to party!

The 34th edition of Fête de la Musique will take place this Sunday and Paris will literally transform in to one big dance floor! There will be countless of concerts, parties and different kind of performances to enjoy the whole day for free so check out this years program. I’m a bit frustrated over the fact that I will be working that day but I will hit the streets dancing as soon as I get off. #letsdance
