NIKE AIR #VAPORMAX (is back)

VAPORMAX OPENING IMAGR.jpg
 

Ask me ten years ago if run baby run was anywhere on my to-do list. Don't take me wrong, I liked me some sort of training but that mostly consisted of shopping for shoes for 4 hours straight and finger muscle training up on Net-a-porter. 
Buuuut...gone are those hot summer days when I could order triple scoops of ice-cream topping sea-salt french fries just because I could - fluorescent adolescent. Out, are the thoughts that fleeted into my brain, mocking that I would be young forever aka speedy metabolism amongst others. My early twenties was in fact, punctuated with poor choice in food: Mac had me at hello. Damn those fries are good. Anyhow!
One decade after and body cells turn over, metabolism abates, you suddenly think the Olympics could be your next goal.. and your nevers become… well.. forevers?

Maybe it's life's Yin and Yang but now my fridge mostly consists of avocados, fresh greens et al and I own a huge load of trainers.. usually form Nike. Just (makes me) do it. 
Here, Vapormax.. oh Vapormax you have been oh-so-real. Doing the work a lot more fun and easy as it actually feels like walking on air (at least my Aero cravings are compensated *rolling eyes emoji) - anything that contains bubbles and isn't fun anyway?!
Lightweight, revolutionary, knitted (fashion alert), feeling like running on air. Check, check, check and check.

All good with gymnastics food and all but let's be a real for a minute — this is a fashion blog.. and please do remind me when are we not looking for a pair of photo-worthy pair of shoes?
Needless to say, it feels like these kicks can match anything in my closet.. but first thing's first, you know I love me some co-ordinating action.
All purple everything and... #kissmyAirs!
Sold out globally in no time, Vapormax launches again today with a black / anthracite game changer - and I already see the pairing; 'never have I met a suit I didn't like' or an off-shoulder dress it is.
Shopping card ahoy!

I have enough shoes said no woman ever and hey Stuart, I luv ya mate.
Current favourite pair of flats, perfectly working their way with my other geeky usual - do, colour blocking red with pink.
As for my clothes; apparently it's the week (month / year) of the suit.

PLAYING UP TO GENDER STEREOTYPES

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.

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

 
 

Ph. credits: Moeez Ali, Jonathan Daniel Pryce for British Vogue, ShotbyGio, TheStreetPie

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.

à tout à l'heure
