I always wanted to be skinny, ever since I had the first spark of vanity. I am very petite so it is more difficult for me to achieve the skinny look, I have to excersice every day & choose the right food. My obsession: looking good in jeans. Always looking for the right pair, perfect cut, european design, expensive, designer. My fashion mantra was: when I´m skinny I will just need a t shirt and a pair of jeans, maybe a navy blazer when it gets chilly, that was the vision of myself with the perfect bod.
I finally lost weight & clothes look great on me. The problem is....everything looks very good: leggins, jeans (every style, price and nationality) dresses, blouses....god! And so I realized, I don´t have the budget for a skinny body.
before (Isabel Marant jeans) & after (Hollister skinny jeans)
I have been so entertained with Nicole´s "Candidly Nicole" youtube series. 5 minutes of very, very creative dialogue. Her style is not as great as it was a few year ago (when Rachel Zoe was her stylist). Her L.A. bohemian high-end look was amazing, it got me to buy in stores & boutiques like Curve and Fred Segal. Also, I have to admit that, although not healthy at all, her skinny look & hair extensions were part of that magic.
Laboutine pumps, Lanvin flats, Alaia sandals Balenciaga bags, stylish little Anna Sui dresses, jeans, t-shirts, bikinis and great scarfs....all great choices and very well put together.
Like the lyrics in the song some velvet morning sang by the one & only Kate Moss/ Primal Scream "look at us but do not touch" I have bought so many pieces just out of admiration for design. It gives me a kinda-feeling je ne sais quoi, so difficult to explain. I just have to have them, no matter the price. Examples found in my closet ( worn maybe only once):
Prada wedge shoes, Isabel Marant boots, Christopher Kane for Top Shop dress, Prada tie dye pumps, Kate Moss for Top Shop...& the list goes on
