Me and the post-christmas sale have a love-hate relationship, that’s for sure. And it’s also kind of predictable, because in the end I’m always the one who gives in. Unfortunately – my closet is about to burst.
Although the shipping to where I live always takes a little long (up to 2 weeks!), I’m usually pretty impressed with the quality of the things I order and I can’t remember being disappointed even once. So I’d definitely say that ASOS is one of my favorite online shops as they offer a wide variety of brands and styles.
MONKI baseballcap + plaid blanket scarf / CHEAP MONDAY clutch bags in silver and black / ASOS eye ring + black knit beanie + black knit scarf
Unfortunately there’s no UO store where I live, so I have to get their stuff either when I’m traveling, or online. The shipping usually takes up to 7 days.
I'll show you everything I got in some outfit posts soon, so stay tuned for that!

You know those days when your hair is sitting so flat on your scalp it looks like it's glued on?
No, I'm not talking about the slicked-back-wet-look which is the next big thing in SS15. I mean those streaks of hair and flat-like-a-pancake parting you can't even "push up" with tons of hairspray.
If you know what I'm talking about, try: headbands
(definition: the object your mom forced you to put on when you were little)
And if not: congratulations, you are the lucky one.
both from URBAN OUTFITTERS • and currently on sale!

Mom jeans, scrunchies, tattoo chokers, jelly shoes, overalls, Doc Martens and Timberlands, bucket hats, slap bracelets, ... (the list goes on and on and on). Yes, the 90s were pretty good.
And I can still remember chokers being a big thing back then. Little L of course tried to pull it off, but not too successfully. I wish I had a photo to proof that.
And after all, I'd have never expected to fall in love with any of these things ever again.
But I did, recently.
I'm not sure how long this 90s-revival-phase will last, but I'll wear whatever I like anyway, because that's what you're supposed to do: not giving a ef about if it's in trend at the moment or not -
IF YOU LIKE IT, WEAR IT. ALWAYS.
(Except bucket hats and slap bracelets, you can ditch those.)
mom jeans - ZARA
choker + headband - UO
dark grey sweater - Brandy Melville
leather belt - vintage
By the way, I apologize for the absolutely miserable quality, I think Apple needs to upgrade their webcams instead of bringing out the next iPhone.
