Parisian Student-esque



My outfit today is totally random. Sometimes I get this idee-fixe stuck in my head about wearing a certain piece, but can't think of anything to wear it with/a way to make it seasonably appropriate. I got my mind set on wearing this dress because it's a weird but cute one and I like to tackle a challenge from time to time. How to style it? I ended up with this combination that sort of reminded me of a Parisian art student in the fourties: I could totally see myself painting a corny rendition of the sun setting over the Seine in this particular getup. RIGHT? Haha I don't know, it's a weird outfit that feels ridiculously costumey but I still secretly really like it (can I cram even MORE words ending in -y in a sentence?). I guess I'm in two minds about the look! What do you think?


dress, shoes: T2 vintage
beret: old
coat, socks: Pimkie
bag: Zara


PS: one of the buckles on my stupid bag was open and I didn't notice until later on and I was too lazy to take my pictures again, so that's what you get. I'm so totally real and shiz.


PPS: my boyfriend was apparently feeling frisky so he suggested we'd spend our free day tomorrow (had totally forgotten about it being a holiday until my classmates told me yesterday) driving all the way to Liège to visit a practice of his favorite soccer club. That's a two hour drive. The practice starts at 10 in the morning. And I need to wash my hair tomorrow. Yeah, I'm a lucky girl.

  2. I love the Parisian student in the forties vibe! Was gonna make some grinchy remark about Parisian students being overrated, but the forties connotation totally de-grinched me! ; )
    P.S. Hmmm, I understood something pretty different from "frisky." (as in he wants to get it on, yo). Sure you don't mean "antsy?" Haha.

  10. Ahh! This is so cute. The buttons on the dress are adorable and I love the beret. Tres chic!
    I actually don't think it looks costumey at all. You balanced the dress out well with the bag, coat and shoes. You are super awesome.

  13. I'm hoping you get delicious waffles out of this early morning road trip?? I am the same way about winterizing vintage dresses, usually I just pull on a random coat and tights and hope for the best. Your look works as is but I can see this dress being wonderful with a brightly colored coat too (hunter green?). I pretty much wear a beret every day in the late autumn/winter, I'm actually sitting here wearing the twin of your hat! :)
