“Music really influences my wardrobe; I listen to a lot of techno from Berlin or from the UK. Their techno venues are pretty underground so people have a crazy yet dark sense of style.”

“La musique influence énormément mon style; j’écoute beaucoup de techno, que ça soit de Berlin ou du Royaume-Uni. Ce sont des milieux assez underground dans lesquels les gens ont des styles assez poussés et dark.”

“Fab has a lot of charisma, that’s his personality. The vibes that he gives off are what makes everything look good on him. He’s not afraid to try new things; I’ve always liked that about him.”
“What I like the most about Sidney’s style is that whatever he wears, he wears it well. He can put together any outfit while blending  styles, colors and trends from different eras.”

“Fab a un vrai charisme, c’est sa personnalité. Tout ce qu’il dégage qui fait que tout lui va. Il ose; j’ai toujours apprécié ça chez lui.”
“Ce que j’aime le plus dans le style de Sidney, c’est que peu importe ce qu’il porte, il réussit à bien l’assembler tout en mélangeant les styles, les époques et les couleurs.”

“You’re probably thinking that this is a co-ordinated outfit, but it’s not. I like mixing and matching different clothes like this top and skirt I got from Brandy Melville. Unless you try it, you won’t know if you like it!”


“Contrairement à ce que l’on peut penser, je ne porte pas un ensemble. J’aime rassembler des pièces différentes comme j’ai fais aujourd’hui avec un top et une jupe Brandy Melville. Essayer c’est l’adopter ! ”

“When I started my blog, fashion was an important part of my life; it helped me express myself and my creativity. Now I’m more into minimalist clothes and relaxed silhouettes with a hint of athletic attire, like COS, one of my favorite brand names.”

“Quand j’ai commencé mon blog la mode tenait une place primordiale dans ma vie et me permettait d’exprimer ma créativité. Mon style évolue de plus en plus vers le minimalisme, des coupes droites, des choses épurées, comme la marque COS que j’adore par exemple. Mais tout en gardant quelques touches de sportwear. “

WIWTW: Orange is the New Black

Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.

This week, my teenagehood BFF Lolo and I decided to go to a garage sale/brunch type of event. Yes, I realize that the two have absolutely nothing to do with each other, but we felt like it was an excuse to dress up. (We stayed for two minutes, there was no more food left, and the rude vendors sold tacky clothes.)

Event/Occasion: Worst Garage Sale/Brunch ever
Lipstick: Sephora R02 Courtisane in dark red

I never wear orange because it really makes me feel like a carrot or a pumpkin. But in honor of Orange is the New Black’s Season 3, I made an exception. (Who else had no life for a week or so, bingeing on OITNB episodes?!)

To lighten up the mood and to dress up a little, I decided to wear a white crop top that I made myself out of an old tank top from H&M. It’s really, really easy, especially if you’re not that great at sewing like me.

I borrowed this cute pumpkin-colored skirt from Lolo which she bought from Showpo, an amazing Australian brand I’ve fallen in love with. They make all sorts of stylish clothes and accessories for affordable prices, plus they ship worldwide!

Because the garage sale/brunch was on a boat, on a Sunday afternoon, I decided to casualize my look by wearing my good ole Nike Air Force 1 sneakers.

To get my look, check these out:

Top: $12.69 at Asos or make it yourself!
Skirt: $36.24 at Asos
Sneakers: $100.00 at Nike

WIWTW: Lupita Nyong’o Inspiration

Hey guys! Welcome to another What I Wore This Week post, where I feature an outfit I wore during the week, the occasion and how I styled it.

This week’s outfit is inspired by Lupita Nyong’o on the Mujerhoy Magazine cover for June.

Event/Occasion: Chilling Outside for no reason
Lipstick: REVLON ColorStay lip liner in Wine

I’ve loved Lupita Nyong’o ever since 12 Years a Slave and I can’t get enough of her red carpet looks, street style and her beautiful smile. Yesterday I saw her Mujerhoy cover and decided to recreate a similar outfit, because yellow is a sunny color and why not?

I decided to wear an H&M bathing suit top as a crop top, because I love the pattern and it’s so comfortable. I simply paired it with this beautiful pleated maxi skirt that my mother made for me. It’s elegant and pale yellow so it’s a win-win situation. Finally I added a pair of white flip-flops from Aldo for comfort.

To get my look, check these out:

Top: $43.00 at Asos
Skirt: $108.00 at Asos
Flip-flops: $45.00 at Asos

“Before I decide what I want to wear, I search “90’s” on Google. The 90’s inspire me the most: hip-hop culture, huge earrings and high-waisted skirts; I just love it!”

“Avant de choisir ma tenue, je tape “années 90″ sur Google. C’est ce qui m’inspire le plus: le côté hip-hop, les grosses boucles d’oreilles et les jupes tailles hautes; j’adore!”

“I never change hairstyles (I always have straight bangs) so I like to dye my hair to look different from others. Burgundy is a beautiful color and I’ve wanted to dye my hair burgundy for so long so I did!”

“Je change jamais de coupe de cheveux (toujours une frange droite!) alors j’aime bien changer de couleur pour me différencier un peu des autres. Le bordeaux est une couleur que j’aime beaucoup et que je veux faire depuis longtemps alors je me suis lancée!”
