Crop Top - Stradivarius // Skirt - Vintage // Shoes - Marques' Almeida

The first time I wore this skirt, a Vogue freelancer approached me downtown asking if she could take some pictures. I had bought the skirt 10 minutes before for 2€, because it was so hot I couldn't bear wearing trousers. So, as you can imagine, the combination was as weird as it gets; picture a pleated skirt with an oversized white T-Shirt tucked in it and some Nike Free Run. As for this time, stepping up a notch was mandatory and what better solution than paring it with my beloved Marques' Almeida shoes, right?

Some of you who follow me on Facebook might have already seen my Tåka·Mau earpiece, which I got for my birthday. I'm not much of an accessories girl, it's rare to see me wearing rings, earrings, necklaces, etc, because it always feels too much! Exceptions made, this earpiece can be discrete or the high point of an outfit, it all depends on how you stylish your hair and clothes.
Since I've had this blog I feel the urge to divulge portuguese brands; we have so many talented and sometimes underrated designers and artists, it's a shame not to post about them. Moreover the brand is fresh, clean, contemporary and above all: innovative. Each piece can be adapted to the user, therefore each piece is personal and right off the runway.

Finally enjoying my moment of pure darkness: black hair, pale skin, red lips. As I said previously, black hair (or almost) had been on my wish list since last summer and now it's done. Although I didn't bleach it - because I want to maintain my natural color - , I bought some dark brown, almost black ink to give it a first try and the best thing about it is you return to your original color after washing it circa 8 times. Perfect if you're afraid it won't suit you.

Tatiana Lёshkina is one of those photographers you find and never forget; I've known her work for more than a year now and it still feels fresh to me. Everything in her photographs seems so light and effortless, even though most of them defy gravity, placing bodies and objects in harmony as if they were born to be together. Sometimes the line between forced and natural is so thin, you are afraid that the next time she'll cross it, like many other photographers do. Not Tatiana, she is in full control of her aesthetics, standing out for not being afraid of taking risks
Pure, clean, balanced, structured and subtle; maybe that's the reason why it can get quite paradoxical with fragile positions sculpting a solid image. But at the end of the day, isn't that the feeling you want to get? Contrasting elements that disturb your ideal of beauty, becoming simultaneously fragile and powerful.

Photos by Rita Fernandes

T-Shirt - Primark // Pullover - Carolina Herrera (for only 5€, lucky me) // Trousers - H&M // Sneakers - Nike Free Run 5.0

Starting this post must have been one of the hardest things for me lately, meaning this especial hobby will suffer some changes. As you might remember I had (past tense) a boyfriend who was my photographer as well as my biggest motivation to keep updating. Now that it has ended, I'm trying to get my life back on track, staying as positive as I can (believe me, it's a struggle) and starting a fresh new chapter! You'll no longer see his photos, but the quality won't be compromised , as you can see. Rita was the first one to offer to help me and I'm so thankful for her patience, working with a perfectionist is a hard challenge. As for the blue-toned photos matching my pullover, they also accentuate this change of aesthetics, I'll now take more risks, wrap my pullover sideways, stand out for who I am and accept my flaws. 
Nonetheless my hair will also suffer an intervention, one I've been daring myself to make over the past year and a half, but never had the courage to. More on that later. And more on the new header I'm currently working on, too.
Although I know this might be a bit of a shock for you as it is for me, I hope you love the photos as much as I do and accept this change.
