The blur of the city.
One of those night when you think you are heading home to cook dinner but one too many cocktails and then the mood to stay out has taken over. It was a beautiful, windy night and I had B take a million hipstamatic snaps until his phone died.
I have this ultra soft cotton maxi dress c/o Elan but of course, for me it’s just a bit too maxi. I have this trick where rather than hanging the dress up I twist it up and tie it in knots to get that major crinkly look. But alas, I am still just a bit too wee. So instead of rocking the platforms, I just knotted the skirt in the back. It’s a sexy halter dress that is not appropriate for work so I layered it with a loose tee c/o Line + Dot that I hacked to give it a cropped effect. My summer shoes of choice this season tends to be my Melissa’s because it’s like wearing slippers. It’s all about proportions when it comes to being small. They are lots of looks and trends I would love to wear but if you can’t make it work for your body then it’s best you just pass on that style and move on to the next one.
Bag: YSL Muse, Arm candy: friendship bracelets and sparkles c/o Shashi. Oh yeah, dinner was at Republic. But this isn’t really a food blog.
Maxi Skirt, Mini Girl: San Sebastian Edition
A major trend that I love right now is the maxi skirt. Being a mini size person the maxi doesn’t always work. It requires the perfect balance between top and bottom to pull it off without looking like you are dressing up in your normal sized friend’s clothes. It was our first night in Spain and I was dying to wear this Rebecca Minkoff maxi skirt. It felt so feminine and silky with a fantastic swishy effect. I layered it with a tie-dye tank c/o OBEY Clothing and a slouchy tee c/o Line + Dot and my suede MIA sandals. We went out and ate pintxos and drank Txakolí every night. The best place we found was A Fuego Negro.
Oh man, was I jet-lagged at that point.
