Three Things #1

In the intent to relaunch my blog, I will be starting this series called "Three Things". Since I'm always browsing - especially over on tumblr - and online shopping, the result is the development of tiny obsessions with specfic details; a type of shoe, colour, clothing, jewellery and such. So I will be sharing a few of these over here - god willing it interests someone else haha. 

1. Silver

Over on my Tumblr, I've been loving silver nails, shoes and satin, silver-coloured garments. In general, silver coloured jewellery is not really my thing as I definitely tend to gravitate towards gold accessories... but silver shoes and dresses? - I've been loving, lately.

2. White Lace

In particular, these embroidered light bomber jackets below - if I find one to buy this spring I'll be the happiest. My favourite is the jacket in the top right picture; it is from Valentin Yudashkin SS15 (a great collection in general, you can view it here.)

3. Hair Inspiration

Have you ever been in a "Hair-rut" ? A phase where you felt that you were really bored with your hair? The way it fell, the colour, the terrible need of a cut and a pick me up? Well, I'm there right now, so I have been looking up styles - colours, mostly - so that I do something with it. 

I'm leaning towards ginger hair a lot, but my hair colour is a sort of medium dark, ashy kind of brown, so it's either that or I simply go lighter on my natural shades. 

Or Pink. (I wish)

Those were my three things for this first post. Not the only things I'm fawning over at the moment, but more on that later!

Hope you're having a good day :)

A Clothing Rack

Here's a sneak peak of my clothing rack, just because it's pretty. :)

Also, can you guess who the poster on the wall to the left depicts? Bonus points if you do! :P

It's not vanity. Seriously, it's not.

I have a different kind of post for you guys today. I've been thinking, you see, and since I do quite a lot of it, I managed to actually get somewhere.

I had a short day at University today. So after a lesson of 'Tool-kit For Thinking Out Of The Box' I decided to treat myself to a shopping spree and spend every single shiny euro. It didn't really end up to that but I did spend the majority of what I had. I would say I feel guilty, but I don't.

I feel I have to say this; it was a special day. It was a special day because for the past few days I've been pin-pointing shopping and spending habits I have that are rather annoying. For one thing, it's incredible how much I skimp on bottoms; ie. trousers, skirts and shorts. The second and most annoying is that I tend to be scared of buying things for fear of spending the little money I have. The thing is, I bloody spend it on food, drinks and useless stuff then. *disbelieving* *ugh*.

So today I feel like I've launched a personal project. One that's all about spending my money on things that really matter. Specifically, on building a wardrobe of quality items. These are to me the equivalent of quality art paints. Dressing up is an art. It's not vanity. Seriously it's not. 

Take it like this: Would have Van Gogh been able to create his masterpieces without paint and canvas? No. So we need clothes. We need bags and scarves and shoes. It's our creative side which compels us to translate this artistic streak through what we wear. With that being said, I feel completely justified for not feeling guilty at spending my money on clothes.

Also, in spirit of Van Gogh and Fashion:
