NOVEMBER LOOKBOOK




Divorcing myself from my usual pleats and color blocking, November was centered more around casual outfits, with a touch of class. Although color was not absent this month, and will never be absent from my future posts, as most of my closet is an ensemble of the varying colors of the rainbow, this month was more about monotone and two-tone colors. This was also a month of great learnings. I provided you with a visual display of one of the most important life lessons a short girl should possess; how to deceive people in thinking your legs are longer than they appear. I then went on to teach you the fine art of corporate seduction, only to find myself joining a Mariachi band a few short weeks later. But I quickly redeemed myself with pants reminiscent of couture bed sheets. Alas, it was not long before I succumbed back to the pleated skirts and bright colors


Oh, and what month is complete without verbal abuses heralded towards morbid Twillight fans? Although my ‘What to wear to Twilight’ post was meant for the LULZ, the vast majority of folks seemed to have missed the point. I guess sarcasm doesn’t really translate too well over the internet, eh? I mean, I had people commenting on the post saying ‘cute look’ or ‘you look stunning’… um... I have a fucking beret covering my face… it’s not meant to be cute. But such is the nature of fashion blogs. They are only meant to serve as masturbation images for drooling vegetables, and not meant for the purpose of reading. I never understood why famed fashion blogger, Atlantic-Pacific, never wrote or added any text with her images. I thought it was because she was shallow, or stupid, or both and had nothing interesting to contribute to her posts. But having read a few of her interviews, she seems anything but that. Now I think that Atlantic-Pacific had it all figured out from the start. No one really reads fashion blogs, so why bother writing about how one arrived at styling a certain outfit the way they did? I mean, it isn’t it apparent from the photos? 


But there were many genuinely great comments that I received throughout my posts. They had taken the time to read my posts, and had commented in an articulate way. My interest was piqued in the said commentators’ blogs, because their comments made me realize that they weren’t just brain-dead drones, here to spam and advertise their own blogs like many do (and something I’m terribly guilty of also). 

 

Also new this month, I crossed to the dark side and joined Instagram. My Holy Trinity of Social Stalking is now complete. Though, what’s sad is that, Chiara Fergani’s dog (from The Blonde Salad)  now has its very own Instagram account and has infinitely more followers than me. So there you have it folks. A dog has more fucking followers than me. 

 



And the world continues to crumble…

  8. Have always loved that celine detail shot (hope to own a bag like that one day). I follow ciara feragni but will never follow her dog-dogs should NOT have instagram accounts, especially when their mothers post so many pics of them anyway! I can't wait for decembers looks! xx

    ps. never stop writing text with your shots; you are hilarious and they make your posts much more enjoyable!

  22. Bahahaha I have thought the same thing for the past couple of months..... If I get one more "cute look" I may vomit.... I'm not 5..... I'm no longer "cute"! And I realized early on that having a few "readers" is better than 1000 "followers"...... Keep being freaking awesome!

  24. Ha ha ha ha, you just made my night! You are too hilarious, and so honest...I love it! I just went back and read the twilight post too, and while I'm embarrassed to say that I am a Twilight fan, you had me laughing out loud! What?!?! A stupid dog has over 12,000 followers?!?! I've really heard it all now. I must also say that your November recap is full of such gorgeous photos and beautiful colour...I love your style!!

  32. hahaha totally true, i mean some Fbloggers don't read what you write, is like they just scroll through your picture and comment straight away lol,i don't bother my self about it any more, i still express myself through my blog no matter who reads it or not:) and the stupid dog having more followers on instagram than you lol, i guess is the benefits that comes with having a famous owner,who new dogs could post pictures hahaha, crazy world we live in, people will do anything for attention.
    love the November outfits

  33. First off, those purple pants are amazing and I must tell you that!
    Secondly, I totally know what you mean about getting comments without actually have read the content. I get that often. I honestly think it's because people like to look at the photos, get some fashion inspiration and what not but they aren't really interested in the content. I used to be bothered about that but I kind of understand now that it's nice to have both fashion-oriented and content-oriented readers. Of course though I sometimes get comment that make no sense at all and those are just like what the heck?

  37. Can we seriously talk about how much I kind of love you? You are hilarious, witty, and have amazing height-morphing-blue pants. The twilight post pretty much proves people fail to read fashion blogs (I'm going to admit, I do kind of skip if it looks like a boring post) which yours definitely aren't. I always feel like animal blogs/accounts are a bit like Garfield only because they can't talk in witty speech bubbles, the appeal goes down by a bazillion points.

  39. Well that things happen, I see a lots of comments too on my blog where you notice they didn`t completly read the post, but.. I don`t know, it`s ok, like I made a lot of tutorials I try to take pictures step by step so if someone does`t wanna read it, they still can check the how to. And even if it doesn`t meant to be cute, you are a beautiful girl and everything looks nice on you!!

I'm new to this blog and I went back to a couple of your previous posts and I had a great time looking at the pictures and reading them, especially because they're very well written and is very refreshing for a style blog. I'll definitely be coming back for more. I also must say that you have a great style and your outfits for the month of November were very beautiful. My favorite was the printed pants!

  59. Don't feel bad, dogs and kids always steal the show.... I love this November retrospective (only thing is that you missed my birthday, a bit disappointed but I'll live). Wait, this is about you not me, so: I really love your style. It's simple and classic and timeless but with a little bit of an edge that I really appreciate!!!! I still think you need to make that pic of you smelling the flowers your signature.

  71. Ha ha ha- I just read you what to wear post! I love it! Especially about choosing the right bag ( might carry around a fozeneggs from now one just incase). if a bag dent fit a round rosebuds clearly not big enough
    Absolutely love roundup posts!! Your pink blouse with the frilly front is beautiful and love the panelled pencil skirt.
    I agree with you people don't seem to want to read posts anymore (or are like me where I read it have a giggle then can't remember how to type a coherent comment)
    You've inspired me to try colour blocking (I hope my wardrobe is big enough to supply indprstin)
    Thank you for te lovely comment on my blog- would lobe to follow each other and I already follow you :)

  74. Oh lordy. Don't even get me started on that dumb comments that get sprinkled all over the fashion blog community. I'm not even kidding, there are so many commenters who don't even look at the photos either. They just scroll down. I once did a post where I featured a gorgeous Kate Moss editorial and I had THREE bloggers comment: "You look pretty in all these photos! Follow me?" Huh.

    I love that you write and post photos. You're witty and funny and smart. It's refreshing.

    Looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us next year!
