As promised, here’s the first in a series entitled “Alex Steals Her Blogger Friends’ Clothes Then Restyles Them and Takes Pictures!”. When my wonderful friend Cee of Coco and Vera showed us this pleated rose Zara number, I knew I had to grab it: the ultra-femme details and cut are right up my alley.
Zara silk blouse and skirt, H&M booties, earrings & ring,
vintage clutch & belt, great-grandma’s ring
I’ve been really into what I like to call “macaron” colours as of late: pretty pastels like soft butter yellow, pistachio green, and dusty rose have quite literally taken over my closet. Standing in front of my closet with Cee’s rose skirt in hand, I instinctively grabbed my new and already very-worn Zara silk blouse in this beautiful light grey-green (one of my recently acquired “macaron” pieces), some cream accents to brighten the look, and warm brown leather accessories to round off the whole thing.
Matt and I are off to watch a matinée of Drive in a minute here and I’m way too excited…I really have no idea what the movie is about, I’m definitely just in it for Gosling. I’m gonna go out on a limb here and declare Gosling as the new Clooney. I don’t think there’s a single woman (or man) who, regardless of what her “type” is, doesn’t find him attractive. I’m usually into really funny guys (Jason Segel, Conan O’Brien), drummers (Dave Grohl…my lifelong love), or big burly guys (cue in the whole New Zealand rugby team). Someone could seriously write a thesis on this phenomenon…what makes these few men (Pitt, Clooney, Gosling) appeal to everyone?
Forget journalism school, this is my new mission in life! Just joking (sort of). Hope all you lovelies have a great Sunday and spend some time thinking about this very deep and thought-provoking issue 🙂
