Hello everyone! As you know I will go to Paris fashion week, where I’ll be able to watch a lot of Fashion Shows and attend glamorous parties. I will sleep at the Four Seasons where I’ll be guest of Dior….
STOP STOP STOP STOP!
This might be the kind of post you’re used to read on other blogs.
But (unluckily) it’s not the case here.
True is: I’m going to Paris fashion week(end)
I might watch a fashion show (one) if they remember to send me an invitation, I will eat couscous with my sister at the Mosquée de Paris and I’ll sleep in a 40 euros room in the apartment of a young musician that I found on my own on Airbnb.
That’s the blog you’re reading.
I’m sooo excited to go there and I’ll take really lots of photos for you (well, I’ll try to) but if you decide to follow me in my journey you’ve got to consider one thing: it’s fashion week Al style, there’s not much bling bling but more of adventures of a very unlucky and goofy girl that one day finds herself among hundreds of well-dressed thin fashionistas and has the behaviour of a kid that sees a giraffe for the first time.
Believe me, I’d like to be you and enjoy the show from afar instead of being the protagonist.
Ok so wanna know the first chapter of the story?
I’ve got nothing to wear. Seriously nothing, not like mywardrobeisfullofCélineandIwantto playthemodest-nothing, but really NOTHING. Empty space. Vacuum.
So I went to Zara today (because let’s say it between me and you, it’s the only thing I can afford right now) to see if I could find something.
I found nothing.
And I’ve got no time to shop anymore, so the new clothes option is eliminated.
My first idea was to wear a round neck plain sweater, a nice button up shirt and a statement necklace. Because I am be the queen of statement jewelry in my own personal view of the world and this should save me from any dress-code issue
The fact that Fashionologie published a post about statement necklaces and plain shirts after a week that I was looking for a necklace to wear like this convinced me that I had a cool idea. Unluckily…
… I found no necklace.
The only thing I’ve got left is creativity.
And my own style, that I don’t want to change.
This means: boring outfit but nice accessories, cool lipstick and nail polish and a very smart face (uh yeah, especially this one). And desperately try to get out something decent from my wardrobe.
I’ll let you know what I’ll come up to in the next chapter (but I have to admit that I already have a few ideas, mainly DIY and casual version of some of the latest runway and street-style looks I’ve seen)
You wish me luck
