A ladylike to wear your boyfriend oversized blazer


Look cool, not sloppy.

By now you should be used to the latest trends, that tell you oversized is cool!
The bigger the better. With the risk you might look homeless sometimes, go for it!

It’s time to wear anything that is two size bigger, so don’t hesitate to borrow your boyfriend shirts, blazers, jeans, but hey, not the shoes! We don’t want some circus going on, pretty ladies! Haha!
My favorite part is that everything is so comfortable plus you can easily hide all the deserts you had lately. 😌

Let me tell you the story, I’m flying to NY, the photo shoot has been already planned for a while, so I’m looking forward to meet my dear Sinziana, who is already having a career as a photographer in the lovely New York, New York.

Overpack- it’s why suitcases have wheels now.

Time to pack! Oh, only one suitcase, only 24 hours, that’s already a difficult start!
Late in the evening, all clothes out, trying to mix and match and play games with my clothes! Let me add some of my boyfriend’s, I’m quickly thinking.
Anyway, Dubai is way too hot at the moment to wear blazer, he won’t notice.
Done! His jacket straight away in my suitcase!
By the way, we kind of have the same size, we can borrow each other clothes and this is not the first time, actually he was wearing mine too, shhhh, our secret!

The masculine meets feminine

What do you do with an oversized blazer though? I don’t want to wear anything under, but I can’t walk in a bra around Manhattan either. Let me add that vintage belt I bought in a second-hand! Oh, did I mention how much I love these shops? Cheap&chic, that’s the etiquette!

I want a feminine look though. I’ll take some stilettos! Hum, dead man walking around NY in high heels, that’s definitely something that you need to see, after such a long flight and no sleep! But, hey, we can do anything we want, can’t we? Yes, who cares, Starbucks is my favorite addiction, it always keeps me going, so why would I give up now? Caffeine won’t give up on me without getting this done!

Oh, let’s go back to fashion! Still one item missing.
Mmm, this floral skirt was trying to get my attention, since it’s been a while I didn’t wear it. Ok, I’ll take you to NY dear, don’t cry!

Voila, my look is complete! Time to explore New York. 🙂

Drops of happiness


February showers bring March flowers.

I have not seen anyone loving the rain more, anywhere in the world, than the way they love it in UAE.

I mean, let’s be honest, I am from Europe and I know very well how Europeans behave when it starts raining, we get all moody and comfy in our beds and we start complaining about how bad the weather is and then we go to sleep, cause nothing beats the sleep with the music of the rain on.

Well, the opposite happens in Dubai and you must experience this! Rain comes with happiness! When the first drops are seen we all jump out of beds and we go out. Go out to feel the touch of the warm rain drops on our bodies, to walk in the rain, to drive in the rain, to dance in the rain, anything, but we don’t stay indoors! We simply don’t! For instance, we’d rather go and take some cool pictures! 🙂

Staying fashionable regardless the weather?!

We all know how hard that is, no one feels like making any effort to dress up on a wet weather, but it shouldn’t be that difficult!

snapseed

First, make sure you stay warm at all times and you’ve got the right boots on! How else would you be able to jump around and splash water all over?

No umbrella? Nothing to worry about!

Put on a hat, I guarantee it will protect you from the rain as much as it does it from the sun!

There you go! All set, ready to Click, Click, Click, ohhh wait,  Taxiii!!!

snapseed

Now tell me…

When was the last time you fell in love with the rainy weather? Come on, if not the drops of the rain, then what brings out the romantic side in you?

Grab his hand and swim in laughter, 

Dance together and he’ll be your lover. 

 

Love,

What is your obsession?


” I wanted to examine the single dot that was my own life. One polka dot: a single particle between billion.”

I’m thinking for a while now, if I actually have any obsession and most probably not. I don’t even know if that is a good or a bad thing. I believe it depends on the type of obsession or the intensity of it.

snapseed

It might be good if you think about the fact you are not addicted to anyone and anything. But when you turn your dream and your passion into an obsession, I believe you are 100% focused on success. It will bring the success! You will make it! Just because everything revolves around your obsession!

That’s what Yayoi Kusama (87 years old!) Japanese artist, did!
Her Dots obsession turned out to be a success and took her work all over the world!

This is when the love is transformed into dots! Nothing makes more sense to her, but dots. She sees dots everywhere. There is no life around without the polka dots.

snapseed

I know, many of you will find it silly, you will say the same as I did, yeah, right, everyone can do it, just some dots hanging from the wall or laying on the ground and here is the art, there you are, a successful artist. But she start working on her project back in the 1990s. It takes perseverance, it takes motivation, it takes strong belief in what you are doing, she was basically breathing dots for 26 years now and today everyone knows about her.

I have seen her work currently in Sharjah Art foundation, it might be looking simplistic but it brings happiness! So again, she knew exactly what her purpose was.

Here are some of our fun pictures taken on the day, around Kusama’s dots. She makes you breath those dots, I’m telling you!

Based on her words I dare to say that we must be living in a colorful polka world.

Therefore I want you all to examine your polka dot. Examine your own life.

Let today be the magical beginning of an enchanted life.

Love,

Andra
