Me Everyday

Do you see the reflection in the window?

This is how usually people react on me. I have difficulties to say if it's shock? embarrassment?
The same question appears on their faces: WTF?

Definitively most of them feel offended by my look. Some of course get a courage to say some shy compliments. However I never wait for any. 

I always enjoyed to shock people. Just because I think they're hypocrites.
I don't need to be fluorescent glowing. Don't have to be naked. 
Torn stay ups  fully visible under mini - skirt won't do it either.
It's enough to have a nice styled hair-do. Some make-up. Red lips, this is really Oh My!
Add some knee length dress, skirt. Waist. High heels not even.
There you have it.

Being Natural is this what counts the most nowadays. 
Make - up so natural that no one can say if you have it. Loose hair, gently touched by the wind when you leave in the morning. Glowing face. Smudgy lips and eyes. Shining, glittering tan, preferably also in winter. Suffer on high heels but never bind your figure.
Everything looose. To hide there anything you want.
But Who wants to look like a girl next door? and Why?

You can imagine how people react when they see me on the train like this. 
Especially here in Denmark where Done - look is rather bad taste. 
Happened that even in my working place I was reprobated for dressing up (I mean everyday style).  Everything is fine until it's by people whom you don't value.
And when I had a trip in summer to Malmo in this dress....
I almost felt guilty :)

I don't really like to go lower just because of technical obstacles. So no matter where, I always feel good because I stay myself.


On winter it is much more difficult. Especially I don't wear furs...
However I so like some fur imitations! But first my friend would have to kill me.

People always think it takes all ages for me to leave the flat.
Probably just to comfort themselves. But of course and unfortunately I am also a part of this world and I have to manage to be ready in one hour, that's my limit,  including breakfast and shower.

I so love hats!!! I find it so amusing how disturbing it is when you walk down the street in one.

You wear it to relax. Maybe to cover your bad hair day. Maybe just to escape... and it appears to be the most eye catching thing in the crowd.

Hat with net is absolute killer. Even my boyfriend won't dare to be next to me when I put it on. But I just can't resist! I so adore them.
But that's true that people are rather afraid of me. They feel uncomfortable talking to me. However there's no obvious reason.
Thanks God for, Charleston and Vintage at Goodwood....and many more.

I love all kind of accessories which most of women find unnecessary. I am ready to spend a fortune for a petticoat or long nylon gloves. For white or net gloves that make people ask me : 
Why do you wear it?

(I'm sorry but) I've never heard about Anne Slowey until I read this in Elle:

 So Ms Slowey doesn't believe it is possible :) I would LOVE to own dresses, costumes taken from MadMan! I spend sometimes hours to track down some special vintage piece online.
My clothes definitively never did and never will depreciate me.
I feel as strong as I am, naked, in 50s full skirt, corset or silk night gown.
Also men - women relation in 40s, 50s... I really couldn't care less.
The only things which touch me deeply do so because I allow this to happen.
So, no, 50s fashion doesn't shake my personality. I believe it is your personality that shakes.

But I found so funny article showing how Anne Slowey enslaved herself, probably just as men enslaved women 60 years ago.

'Check out the food diary she kept for New York magazine’s coverage of Fashion Week.  Here’s her self-reported intake for one day (though you might want to merely skim her list of vitamins—it’s lengthy):
7:30 A.M. Home
Two 1,000-mg. Emergen-C with seven mineral ascorbates and 32 mineral complexes, one ounce of Super KMH, Mona Vie (berry extract), aloe juice, chlorophyll, two Nature’s Way Fenu-Thyme, one advance natural FloroMax, three Wellness Formula tablets, twenty drops Super Lysine Plus, two Theraveda Usha daytime stress formula tablets.
10:30 Sant Ambroeus
Milanese eggs and iced skim latte.

2:00 P.M. Patrik Ervell
Bottle of water and glass of white wine.
3:00 Waiting for the United Bamboo Show
4:00 Waiting for the Diane Von Furstenberg Show
5:00 Waiting for the Luella Bartley Show
6:00 Waiting for the Phillip Lim Show
7:00 Waiting for the Tuleh Show
8:30 At a Friend’s London Terrace Apartment Watching TV
Two glasses of red wine, Camembert and crackers, three olives during Prince’s Super Bowl halftime performance.
11:30 Home
Repeat Fenu-Thyme, Wellness Formula tablets, and add Theraveda Nisha nighttime stress formula.
So it’s totally understandable that she dispenses terrible advice, considering her brain must be more or less pickled by her alcohol intake that appears unmitigated by anything so exotic as actual food.  Maybe she believes that swallowing her own meager weight in vitamins every morning is nourishment enough.  Or maybe she’s gearing up to claim a spot of her own on the runway—amazingly, model Denise Mullins actually ‘fesses up to eating more than Slowey does, and everyone knows models don’t do anything so base as consuming food.  Watch your back, Denise!  If this fashion reporting thing doesn’t work out for Slowey (and, at the very least, it sure isn’t working for us), she may use her bony claws in an attempt to claim your spot on the runway.'

In the end the point is to be inspired and inspiring.
