When it comes to getting dressed, fashion can be a foreign language. Most fashion we wear originates in another country, well at least that's how it is where I live. Regardless of it being something we sometimes do not understand, it is simple enough that we do know if we like it or not.  You see a handbag and without uttering a word you've already made your appreciation of it. Someone enters the room with a printed garment and you want it... or not.
The beauty of the foreign fashion language is that we can all appreciate it even though we may not totally get it... What was the last "it" item you totally loved, or hated ? 

Beauty weapon

Blue and yellow print dress, self made - Light blue bow flats Gio Zanotti - Turquoise sequins straw bag, nicer one 

The other day I was reading about beauty products and how everyone has a secret beauty weapon. 
In my case, I think the most efficient beauty weapon is the one you do not need to purchase: a smile. What's yours ?

Exactly a year ago I was wearing this uncomplicated outfit... which I could wear today if I wanted, as all garments are still in the closet a year later. Going back to see what I was wearing one or eight years ago is an interesting way to check up on garment rotation, style evolution, if I was having a bad hair day and weight ;)
