My outfits have been mainly black and brown recently. And I think I will always be a dark colour person. Black, grey and brown simply suit me and my skin tone best. But I do have some bright pieces in my closet, and I also love to play with nail polish colours. So, this is a rather random post about the colours in my life.
This week at the office in front of photo booth…
I’ve bought this sleeveless Marni top ages age (when Dubai still had a Marni flagship store. R.I.P. Marni flagship store Dubai.) – only because of the colour and the huge dark grey zipper going down the entire back of the top. My colleagues used to make fun of me when I wore that top. They said I looked like someone from the maintenance. Haha. But I don’t care. I just love the stiff cotton. And with my necklace and scarf I’m also sure I it looks less workshop/maintenance, too.
I’ve been searching everywhere for a dark green nail varnish. Finally, I found the perfect green at Bloomindales (though I’d sworn never to buy anything from Bloomingdales in Dubai, ’cause the sales staff sucks in general. Too many, too stupid, too arrogant). The brand is called Illamasqua, and they’ve got really cool colours. This green is called “Rampage”, and it’s a deep seaweed green, which appears blue-ish in industrial light. I really like it, even though I have to say: it doesn’t have the same high-gloss effect that Chanel nail varnishes have.
My absolute favourite nail polish at the moment: Anna Sui’s gold glitter, which I’ve introduced to you here already. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to show its real colour on a photo. The varnish usually appears really bright glittery golden (like on my small finger). You wouldn’t believe how many strangers already approached me to ask me about this nail polish: sales assistants at the cashier, business men in the office elevator, little girls in the supermarket… Seriously, this polish is an attention-whore! And it gives every super serious outfit that certain “twinkle in they eye” (so sorry, but this nail polish screams for shallow plays on words).
No colour makes your hands look as good as a classic red, no? I don’t remember which red this one was, but I think it’s Chanel’s Dragon.
This Phillip Lim top was a sales mispurchase. (Please listen to me: never buy anything only because it’s cheap.) I still like the powdery green, so maybe I’ll give it another try.
The same green is in this LV scarf. But in contrary to the PL top, this scarf is perfect for me, and I colour-clash it with everything in my closet.
Do you know what this is? Me neither. I mean, I know exactly what it is: three pompon ribbons, which I bought in that super-fantastic store in Omotesando, Japan. What I don’t know, yet: what should I make out of it?
Same goes for those three fringy beauties.
Last but not least I want to show you my inspiration for this post (and for more colourful outfits).
Those red boots… they look like velvet. Aren’t they fantastic?
