My shopping bag is full of..

Treasures, if you ask me! Might have gone a bit overboard lately, but I really don't like my job, so I thought I could at least turn what's bad into something good. Which is, in order of appearance:

back garden, Bruxelles, 26th February 2012
knitwear and chocker: Zara
1)  The fact that here in Belgium we live in a neverending winter limbo gives you that "naturally depressed" air that many find irresistible.
(We are in fact quite depressed, hence the chocolate and beer abuse that, personally, I love).

2) I have a thing for powdery pastels, all of them, even the ones that don't get no love. I still love them. And I must say I really - REALLY - do not like all the neon colors we've been seeing lately. Because if you think about it, nobody looks good with some neon orange on his/her bum. At least me. Please, Fashion God, Make them stop.

leather trench: Amuleti J
3) I have always had a love/hate relationship with the trench. I find it very elegant and classy, but not on me.  There's something about it, just like about Mary: can't explain it, but it's there.
Then I got pregnant, and decided I was only gonna eat spring rolls for breakfast. No wonder I gained 24 kilos. Anyways, back to the trench: I was big as a whale, feeling sorry for myself and looking for something to wear, and I saw IT. So pretty, so sweet, and so small I could not even try it on. I told myself that seeing it in my wardrobe would have been a good reason to get back into some sort of shape, and it might have actually helped.

4) The Gran Finale.
I love bags. I think I got it from my mum, and I can't help it. They always look good on you, they put the outfit together, they can tell a lot about someone, and can be a bit of a show off. Destiny made me stumble on The Outnet homepage, and it was love at first sight.
So much that when the guy that was delivering the bag called me to tell me he was gonna send it back since I was not home I begged him so much that I managed to convince him to come look for me. Still don't know how I did that.
He had actually rang the neighbour's bell and asked her if she could accept my parcel, but she said no - Thank God, she would have never given it back to me!

So, Spring, I made my move. Now it's your turn.

Ultimately when you done with them and throw them out, they still end up durante a [url=]Hogan scarpe[/url]
landfill where they can get wrapped around an animal neck and legs where likely the animal will starve that way. Ora the wind blows them so they get stuck per mezzo di trees. Or they end up quanto a the ocean where they are confused for jellyfish and consumed by sea [url=]Hogan[/url]
life that normally eat jellyfish (just one example of [url=]Hogan[/url]
plastic impact on our seas).

Necklaces can enhance the aspetto of [url=]Hogan[/url]
your shirt, sweater ora dress by adding color, brightness and beauty. You can even make your neck and upper pagliaccetto appear thinner by wearing certain types of [url=]Hogan[/url]
necklaces. For example, if you have a [url=]Hogan[/url]
solid colored shirt or dress with a [url=]Hogan[/url]
rounded neckline, wear a [url=]Hogan outlet[/url]
necklace of [url=]Hogan[/url]
medium length that hangs in a [url=]Hogan[/url]
