The colour is just something special, so bright , that it will seamlessly fit almost any outfit. It pure perfection and I am in love with this hat, I need 7 of them for each day of the week. I saw this jam crying out my name on net-a-porter , and it has filled my dream even since. Pair , this beautiful creation with denim skins and any classic coat you have from black to brown. I should just like to say , Thank you Madison Michel, for answer my prays and creating an orange hat. Jus next time , can you put C.O.D on it !

 

Confession from the weekend rave

I like to go out , its fun! I get to drink, I get to mingle , I get to pretend I am French to get free drinks its great ! And most of all I get to dress up! However , this one particular night , I encountered one of the most interesting remarks from a drunken person. It was interesting to say the least.

Let me paint a picture, I was wearing my trusty fun as tweed hot pants from forever 21. They are amazing , I love hot pants, comfortable and they make your legs look amazing. Matched with a loose Zara stripped cotton tank and leather patterned oxfords, I was comfortable and personal thought I looked amazing, for a number of reason. Firstly, I looks pretty good just the right balance of riskaay, flirty and polished, just the right amount of spark to get me a free drink . I wasn’t dressed slutty, the outfit was a typical Claire outfit and from fellow friends , I received many complements on how I was nicely dressed. And secondly, I knew if I was a unique outfit, that was a bandage dress or something tacky that I would attracted decent people, its a none science.

Enter, some random drunken guy. Yes, he was cute. Yes, he was well dressed , I did like his watch , I would wear that.Conversation was okish, going along nicely until he says to me . ” your really hot, you know you would get more guys if you dressed cuter’

Now , let that soak in. My firstly response was , Yes ! I am now a successful man repeller and secondly, what a dick head. But, his comments made me think, does it all come down to the clothes or lack of clothing on my body ,are guys going to more  attracted to me if I wear the same thing as the girl next to me ?  Its seemed that bandage dress and a  life as sheep is the way to win some dick head heart. Now, I know I can’t change some party boys mind, cause to a degree he is very correct. And its sad that to be notified people think they must camouflage into the crowd. I say wear what you want , but first and for most wear it for yourself, never anyone but yourself and trust me you will be surprised by the result

The morning after

We all know the feeling the morning after a really good night out, one that you may have over stepped your judgement on what ever it may have been , but ooooh was it worth it ! However no morning after can compare to the Tuesday after cyber Monday. You have had a full on 5 days my friend, starting it of with thanksgiving ,followed by black Friday and then the whole weekend just rolled into buying everything in site, off and online.

Some of us my be buried m physical and mentally, are finger my be swore and we may still be fragile ,that is why you must rest, in your Egyptian  cotton sheets that where 30% offfff ! SCORE ! and rest it all off, maybe Piperlime will miss read your addressed and that shift dress you ordered will never arrive….. we can only dream Now, you may be left with some items that you are thinking ….” why the hell did I get this , I don’t even like purple” or ” what was in my Starbucks pumpkin latte that possessed me to buy these mint ear warmers, I live in Florida ! “. Its time to stop, rethink and evaluate if you actually won anything of value. Just because the lady in the Juicy sweat pants wanted that heavily discounted bad Marc Jacobs look alike bag for her 12 year daughter, doesn’t mean your going to like it. So listen here friends, this is what we are going to do ,

1. Keep all cashmere items , you will always wear them

2. Try everything you brought on , if some thing that may match, play around with things in your wardrobe. Now , if it doesn’t go with anything and its got you thinking, I should buy that cute Zara skirt it will go with it . DON’T ! You are poor now until Grandma gives you a Christmas coupon

3. Make a pile two piles, re gift and EBay . Use each wisely

4.Although  you may have made money on eBay ,do not go shopping until boxing day, give yourself and your credit cards a rest
