it's been such a hectic week. i've been running around like a mad man doing errands, been swamped at work, studied for my driver's licence exam, took my first driving lesson and so on. i am sure glad it's over and i can relax and enjoy my weekend. all this running around gave me no time to dress up and set the creative wheels in motion. it's been a week full of pants, t-shirts and sneakers until friday when i decided to put a bit of effort into my dressing up, and this is what i came up with. i've been quite excited to introduce you to my new vintage skirt i picked up in paris. i was hesitant to buying it at fist because of the price - 25 euros! - but it was such i statement piece, i couldn't resist it.. it has the most gorgeous print and colors and the label says it was made in west germany. how cool is that? i love a full skirt and the way it accentuates the waist. i definitely wanted all eyes to be on the skirt but i also wanted to avoid pairing it with a plain black or white shirt. and so i decided to play a bit off the colors of the skirt and paired it with what i call my tattoo shirt. it also has a beautiful print on it and it's a bit transparent so if you look real close you can actually see my real tattoos underneath it. i haven't worn so much color at once in a really long time, but it sure paid off taking this chance.
