Alter Ego would definitely want to star in Pulp Fiction.. as Vincent Vaga, obvs.
Aside from my kick ass pick up line (tongue out emoji, hashtag tapping myself on the back), there is nothing I like more than playing up to gender stereotypes (or a nice tailored suit for that matter). Stunning silk aka capital-F femininity ( c'mon this is MaxMara, can't go more chic than that) contrasting casual sneaks, topped up with a black lace sexifier for a dose of Mia. This is still Pulp Fiction, let us not forget.

Although Spring and I have started getting closer, I think I owed you the last part of (almost all) my looks from PFW. 
So, yay or nay?

RED. DON'T SAY I DIDN'T TELL YOU | PFW LOOKS #2

Wearing: red Velvet dress/jumpsuit - VETEMENTSxJUICYCOUTURE from Splash by the Beach /  trainers - OFF WHITE / cluch - NATARGEORGIOU

Bright, bold, show-stopping, red!
Don't say I didn't tell you!
Total red will be more sizzling than the chicken curry you ate last week.
Prada, Fendi, Proenza, Jil Sander, Maxmara and the rest of the gang have made their note and apparently I did my lil' forecasting alright - monkey face emoji. This should also give you another hint.
You will be seeing red everywhere next season, whether it is in shoes, coats, dresses or in a total look.
Co-ord is the word for a few seasons now and code red is in for A/W17. 
Cap ou pas cap?

ELEVEN INCH GUN CLUB | PFW LOOKS #1

Wearing: Top + Skirt - VETEMENTS X CARHARTT from Splash by the beach / Sunglasses - Marni from Splash by the Beach / shoes - Melis Yildiz / clutch - Natargeorgiou

As promised, my outfits from Paris Fashion Week will start dropping one by one!
First day, first look - 10:00 am at Charles De Gaulle, 11:45 at my Airbnb home away from home (Parisian traffic is out of this world! If you know Paris, 1:45 to get to the centre is just TOO MUCH) and first call was at 12:00 for LANVIN's show.
I had like 15 minutes to get ready and teleport myself from Marais to the oh so beautiful Hotel de Ville - quickly (and I mean very quickly) changed my hiking boots and fur monster (always simple and incognito *rolls eyes) to this VETEMENTSxCARHARTT attire ('durable workwear '- I thought to myself, perfect). Stepping out of my Montorgueil apartment (hands down, best area to live in Paris), I found the sky raining to fashion death (perhaps the floor length skirt wasn't such a good choice after all but I had no nano seconds to even consider changing clothes - at least my dearest Vogue et al approved) and it was freezing AF - that's (fashion) life, I kept reminding myself at all times I was ready to collapse. 
Anyhow - no kidding, Paris Fashion Week was intense but amazing this season!
I got to see stunning shows, walked around, met new interesting people, went to amazing places, had finger - licking food. Let's say I got my dose to keep me (from insanity) going for a little while - Paree mon amour, till the next time.
Everything from my trip is up on Instagram but more detailed looks with their where-to-buy links are coming soon.

#WhenIwasabrunette volume 01. 
Right before I joined the blonde land, with a rather impulsive and oh-so-very-sudden decision, we had shot a few stories featuring some favourites from the S/S17 collections so - whoopsie - my sincere apologies for this mix-and-match that is about to follow.
It's no secret, that I am a huge fan of head-to-toe monochrome (in red until further notice), so when I saw these Givenchy pinkies I was like
oh-la-la - come to mama!
The luscious camisole hits my bed outfit leaves the bedroom soft spot - too good for a simple goodnight - and the cardigan that 'effortlessly' drops off the shoulders for the 'show the right amount of skin' rule, perfectly contrasts the tailored pants and casual sneaks. 
After all, it's all about balance and proportions innit?
Whatcha think?
Love you, leave you.

P.S. My PFW outfit roundup is coming your way very soon! 

 

PAREE WITH FOLLI FOLLIE

Photography by Shotbygio
Location: Palais de Tokyo, Paris

Featuring: Style Code Shopper Bag | Cyclos red watch | Sparkle Ball ring | Knots ring | Cross earrings // Fashionably Silver collection


Hey hey!
Sup?
If we are Instapals, you should already know most of the things I am about to address, but if not please bare with me...I will try to explain what happened to the brunette you used to know.. who's that strutting in the Parisian streets, what for, when et al. 

Let me start from the new me part. Not much to say other than it was one of those days..!
I needed to do something, pronto.
It was either gonna be the balance of Visa or the guys looking after my hair (you can also call them psychotherapists, whatever works) .
Emptying my Visa was not really a choice that day (used that excuse the previous week) so hair had to pay the dues. Aaaand blonde it is. It took me some time to process but me likey.
Thoughts? Hit me up. Honest and constructive feedback pretty please.

Second subject matter! Paree, l'amour de ma vie.
Dat season of the year.. Paris Fashion Week; and I visited the French capital for my blogger's duties.
 Shows, presentations, streetstyle struts et al, coming your way very soon. (I still have a lot of unpublished material so be in the know). 

For now, let me talk to you about my little Parisian get-together with Folli Follie.
We all know I love my bling. And I love a lot of it. So when the brand got in touch in order to introduce their new lines suggesting this shoot (so you guys can find out more about it), I was like hell yes! Classy and chic, but with a twist. Bingo, my soft spot. 

So. 
The convo went like this:

- Hey miss Dose. We wanted to see if you'd like to join us in a shoot with three other lovely ladies (Nat, Patricia & Chrissiana) to showcase some pieces from our new collection.
- Sure guys, I'd love to. Who's the photographer?
ShotbyGio.
(Thinks.. tick - one of her favourites). 

- And location?
- Meet you at Palais de Tokyo?
- Sure
(Thinks.. okay this will be a good one. One of the most beautiful places this city has to offer) .

- And what about the pieces?
- The collection is called Fashionably Silver, you can pick what you like.
- Awesome
(Leaves 3 hours blanc on her Moleskin as she knows this 'pick what you like' thing will be pretty damn hard.)

So?!
Fall for them already? FYI the only answer is yes! Otherwise I am filing a divorce.
We should know each other better. 

Let me know.
