Stripey stuff, short skirts and sandals.. and fast food


I'm not even going to comment on the fact that again it's been quite a while that I blogged something. We all know how time flies, right? ;-)

Summarising the summer: it has been a busy couple of months.. haven't had any holidays yet.. and in 2 days, it's going to be officially autumn ( or fall if you're American :-P ).

Though that didn't stop me from enjoying the occasional sunny day with my friends!

When it comes to outdoor outfits, I noticed I usually wear dresses or jeans. I think that's because choosing a dress is much easier and wearing jeans is just super comfy. With skirts, I always have to think about a flattering top.. hoping that it will enhance my almost non-existing curves.

My previous post was on black and white patterned dresses and yes.. even my top couldn't escape my preferences. I do love how it makes the outfit give off a sort of French Parisienne vibe! The only thing I need now is a beret, some wine and a baguette! ;-)

I don't know if the pink/coral strappy heels can be considered French... but it was one of the last nice days of summer, so I was dead set on wearing these kind of shoes before boots season starts!

As you can see in the pics above.. our afternoon late lunch was not exactly French cuisine! :-P

Earlier that afternoon, we parked the car somewhere near a park.. but there was no real path to the water. So I just got one shot on the gravelly path and then we headed back to the car to go the Burger King.

That's it for this week.. hope to post something next week. We can always have good intentions! ;-)

 Hope you're all off to a great start of this week!

And yes, new footage means a new YouTube video! Short and sweet.. so enjoy! :-)

The quest for the perfect black and white dress


Oooh.. boy! Almost a month since my last blog-post and YouTube video.. what is up with that?! 

It's supposed to be summer, but it has been so busy with work that I couldn't find time to properly sit down and do some editing and create actual stuff. And yes, I do notice that it's far easier to just post a photo to Instagram or Flickr. Still, not as fulfilling as writing and finishing a blog-post.

Anyway, enough yammering! It's Sunday and I thought to post a few pics of my indoor test photo-shoots I did last Friday. The theme of the shoot was black and white patterned dress.. and I ordered two dresses to see how well they fit me. I would love to hear your opinions!  ;-)

The first B/W dress has all these black stripes in a random pattern which I really like. With my height of 1,70 metres ( that's 5 feet 7 for you Yanks :-P ), this dress ends just above my knees. Respectable, right?

With B/W dresses, I like to put in some bright colours in there. So for this outfit, I chose red heels and slightly brighter bag. Just for that added pop!

The second B/W dress has a pattern which I think is inspired by both florals and ink-blots. I do think this dress looks darker because there's more black in it. And with these kinds of dresses, I do prefer them to be a bit more brighter.

No bag for this outfit, but I did change the shoes.. because variety is the spice of life.. or something like that! :-P

So, what do you think of these dresses? Do they fit and flatter me? I'm not super convinced yet.

And what colour would you choose for the heels? You all know I have many to choose from! ;-)

 Hope you had a great weekend!

Haven't found the time yet to create new videos, even though I have tons of material just waiting to be editing. So I will just put some links to these older ones. :-)
