outfit | fucsia

Everyone has their own way to shop…

My mom for example always shops full outfits, meaning that she probably won’t buy an item unless she builds the whole look… she likes to make sure she’ll actually wear the piece she’s investing on and not just buy something she will forget at the back of her closet… I guess we could say she has a very effective and methodic approach.

Me on the other hand, I do the exact opposite I shop impulsively… If I love it, I go for it thinking that eventually at some point, I might find the way to wear it, so pretty often I find myself having pieces that I love but that I haven’t worn at all even after 1+ year of purchasing it.

But sometimes magic happens and the things I buy randomly suddenly fit together as if I had done it on purpose, only better…

This outfit is exactly that…

I know this is not an outfit for everybody, but you know I love me some flashy! Plus I had lots of fun wearing it for a sunday stroll under the sun, and celebrating the birthday of one of the loveliest girls I’ve met in Paris :)

Hope you like the photos!
