Printmix


Whenever I do my nails like this, I just can't stop looking at my hands, marvelling at the glittery splendor. I cannot stress enough how easy it is to create this look, and how perfect your nails will look with a minimum of effort. Seriously, try it out! I explained it here

I bought this skirt last week for 7 euros in the T2 monthly sales. The merchandise was marked down 30%, but next week their down to 2 and then 1 euro, so I can't wait to go check it out again. Nothing is quite as awesome as rifling through someone else's discarded treasures, picking up unique pieces and separating the dirt from the delicacies. This one stood out to me because of the silky fabric, vibrant colors and pleats. It reminded me of one of those elegant old lady scarves. The other pieces I picked up were an elegant black/white polkadotted dress and a summery full skirt with palmtrees and busstops on it. It sounds bonkers but it looks awesome. At least I think so! :-D

At first I was a bit apprehensive about styling this skirt, but I just went ahead and piled on another print and more red. I love how the colors in this skirt return in the sweater, lipstick and shoes. Sometimes it's hard to make a look really come together in a harmonious end result, but I feel like this one did.

skirt: T2 vintage
sweater: Pimkie
shoes: River Island
headband: don't remember
ring: Alex Monroe


PS: for those of you who are still sad about missing out on the Lanvinxh&m collection: I found a site selling cheap knockoffs that seem to look almost just as good!

  8. For once, I was hoping the skirt wasn't vintage, because I want one too! The nails are awesome... I've also got sparkles on top of colour, but they're chipping like nobody's business.

    You look like a work of Modern 20th century art!
