Shirt and Silk/Linen Trousers by H&M, Shoes by TOMS, Selfmade 'Karl Who?' Bag (also available at Colette.fr)
While the shirt and trousers are two very classy garments, the shoes and the bag are two very casual ones. I like to break my outfits down by mixing classy and casual pieces together. I also like my shirt tucked in a bit and because it's still quite hot around here, rolling up the sleeves is a must.
T-Shirt by Weekday, Blazer by Whyred, Chino Trousers by ASOS, Straw Hat by ASOS
I had to retake some pictures this weekend with some previous outfits and fell in love againwith my relatively new blazer by Whyred. Due to the very fine wool and its cut, it falls so nicely on my body and looks almost like a very light short trenchcoat. With that said, if you love blazers as much as I do, you should definitely go one step further than H&M, if your wallet allows you to – otherwise there's always a next season sale ahead.
I've been tagged by my dear fellow blogger from Frauenzimmer. While I usually ignore those tags, I thought this subject is actually quite interesting and I'm going to answer the questions as well.
What are you getting weird looks for on the street?
Nowadays I rarely notice those looks anymore, but sometimes friends tell me afterwards and I suppose it's because of the way I dress. I don't know whether those looks are meant positive or negative though. Sometimes it's not just a look but also a comment, like are you gay or what and I find this rather amusing and quite silly to judge someone because of their style or even use the word gay as an insult.
How do you handle these reactions?
Depends on the situation. Sometimes I just ignore them, sometimes I stare back and sometimes I approach them and start a conversation.
Do you like to provoke people or stand out in the crowd?
I guess it's nice to be noticed rather than being unnoticed, which is also a reason why I have this blog. But I'm not dressing while thinking oh yeah, this will surely get lots of attention on the street. I dress the way I do because I like it and it's just me.
On another note, some people have asked me to present some of my favourite blogs, since I'm subscribed to so many with my Google Reader. There's a link on the right side called Inspiration Troves. I'm always tagging interesting blog entries in my Google Reader and then they all land in a special folder in the reader itself and you can take a look at it by following the link mentioned before.
When Lanvin's designers Lucas Ossendrijver and Alber Elbaz got an invitation for the launch party of the summer issue of Acne Paper at the Ritz Hotel in Paris, they decided to use the setting for the new ad campaign of Lanvin's menswear.
