The Joy of Mixing

A vintage designer blazer, a thrifted shirt, a bag from a trip abroad, a belt from a discount store, sunglasses from TJMaxx... this is what I call the joy of mixing. Mixing vintage and current, designer and fast fashion and making it your own. What are your favourite mixes ?

The Underbuyer

Blue striped long sleeve tee shirt Stradivarius - Jeans Red Valentino - Doctor's bag Venezia - Brown espadrilles from Spain

Most comfortable shoe ever: my brown espadrilles from Spain, similar here, here and here in a lighter shade.

After reading this interesting piece I've come to understand that I am "under buyer" when it comes to toiletries. I avoid stocking up on products, unless, of course I find a very unusual Chanel product sale. I like to use up one entire bottle of perfume before going on the next one. The same for creams, lotions, shampoos, hair products... and yes, I also love the unusual yet apparently common feeling of "conquest" once I finish a product to its last drop and take an #empties shot and post in on my Instagram. Which one are you and under or over buyer ?

Venezia bag revisited

Jeans Liz Claiborne - Turquoise bow top Zara - Block heel red sandals Zara - Doctor's bag Venezia 

I've been getting a lot of wear out of this Venezia Doctor bag lately. A purchase from a trip to Krakow in 2014, its a bag with a lot of character, sturdy and practical - just the attributes I need to be right now ;) 

Yes, its backwards

I am pretty sure some people wondered, but did not dare to ask "Is your shirt on backwards?" Yes, its backwards.
