Summer Heat

Again a messy-mixy post. Can't help it, my brain cannot work as it should because it's finally holidays (yayy!!) and it decided that, after numerous finals, it should take a break. So no clean stuff what-so-ever for some time now.

I really liked Cool Like Chloé 's post about summer. Read it. It kind of inspired me to write, heeee :D

Here we go.
What's hot (except the weather, heee) this summer? In Power Rangers Go land anyway. (Yup, a big land that fits in my head)

*Bobs! No, not Sponge Bob Squarepants (although I do love him), neither that working Bob-guy, I'm talking about hair bobs! I really like this 90's kid look I sported myself in the early days. As every other kid actually...so f done right , it can look really cool. Check out these people (from face Hunter). Models have caught up too. Beloved Olya Ivanisevic (patriotism again, ssssh) sports a heaaavy fringe with short carré bob whilst super-sexy super-hot Alison Nix opts for a Louise Brooks flapper haircut.
*The Greek Goddess. This summer, I decided I want to look like a Greek Goddess. Think lots of white, draping, and dark leather gladiator-inspired sandals.After spending some time in the Louvre with school, I decided the Diane Chasseresse looked really cool and her drapey dress looked very Chloé-ish back then. Check out Sophia Kokosalaki's craftsmenship! When fashion meets art...

*Your best friend : your bicycle. Eco-friendly and practical, it's got everything but bad sides : You'll save the planet, you can go where you want whenever you want , you don't have to depend on your parents to drive you somewhere (okay so this doesn't apply to US girls who can drive their own car soon) , no parking freak outs, plus you'll look hot as ever with your hair flowing in the wind and the sun shining on your skin while loosing calories and getting fit. Convinced?

*The ultimate party accessory: the cigarette-holder.If you smoke, say bye to smelly yellow fingers and say hi to elegance. I've been obsessed with those since I saw Chicago. Seriously, is there any other way to look sexy and elegant at the same time? Get in gear with a nude color palette and dropped-waist dresses à la roaring 20's or go Audrey Hepburn all the way.
*It's all about looking breath-taking with miles long legs. Think either minidresses or micro shorts. Minidresses are what you need, right now. Check out Gucci, Chloé, Christian Lacroix...
As for micro shorts, Prada fo sho! Get your grab on satin shiny micro shorts (check out Bershka) or disco-glam gliterry highwaisted hotshorts the Chanel way. But you can also go out on the streets wearing...erm, nothing. Dear little panties seemed to be designers' favorite. Why bother with bottoms when you can go out in your underwear?
*Colors : white, anyone?. Crisp, clean, bright and cool white that will refresh you from the hot sweaty summer days. Always a nice classic.

Another favorite of mine? Bright green. There is such a springy feel to it, and I feel like a flower. The dream dress? Stella mcCartney. That dress seriously looks like a jewel to me. Just look at it! It's shiny, sexy, perfectly cut and and and oooh!



Have a nice summer!

I love all those trends
and I love this post
I'm a fan of the square bob, i'm not willing to cut my hair so I just gave myself bangs instead hahahah.
I don't like the cigarette holder, I had an ex boyfriend who had one and used it everywhere, it was so stupid;)

You just made me realize that I really want to be a bike riding greek goddess as well. Now all I need to do is get myself a new bike and I'm ready to go 8)

Je suis triste que je ne peux pas porter n'importe quel de ces choses parce que je suis trop petite et un peu grosse... peut-être le vélo.

One of my flatmates at uni this year was from Belgium. She was cool.

Yay I am inspired now

Love this post! Its funny and well written as always, and I'm a sucker for pretty pictures.

Yayy, hoorah for bicycles, although here in the UK crazy motorists are kind of offputting! But When I went to Copenhagen a couple of years back, I was totally inspired by the amount of chic ladieees riding around on their bikes with their bags in their baskets. And I love the eco element. No carbon footprint for me!

The Bob is a very cool look. Apart from the v. high maintenance side of things. I love the girl on the far right best.

emerald green....Wow!! awesome colour. I love this shade. and the white dresses were also very attractive. Thanks for the lovely pictures.

I've been seeing way to many cool bikes around lately. I need a bike. And a flat in central Tel Aviv so I can bike around to the 24/7 market and to the gallery.

In the greek goddess picture, the girl in the light blue dress- where is that from? (or could you send me that picture?)

This was good. I love you in green, I look sick in that colour.

coco a dit…

wow i love the bicycle pictures
great finds

Vanessa a dit…

Weird, this is pretty much exactly the summation of my summer look so far! I've been biking everyhwhere in my cheapo gladiators and tiny shorts!

I had a blunt bob about a year ago, but decided to let it grow as my hair texture demanded daily heat-processing and I didn't want to do that. Strange how just as it's growing out it becomes hot again...

ps. I love your blog even though I don't comment much.

Meg a dit…

Merci ;)
