(All Alternatives)

Dog Emblem T-Shirt –  Rebels Market/Etsy (Mostly Pugs)

Long shirt/Overcoat – ASOS1/ASOS2

Under the Knee Socks – Boohoo1/Boohoo2

Flatforms – Ebay

I tried to get alternatives as close to the original items as I could but it was pretty difficult considering all that this style savvy girl had on was from Buenos Aires. I loved midnight blue overcoat and really hope I come across something similar to it soon, it would be perfect to layer with… although I really should cut back on the layering with it being summer and all that. I found the under the knee socks interesting seeing as they’re normally worn over the knee by most people but I think it accommodates one’s height and looks pretty fetch either way. (Yes. Fetch is a thing!)

The t-shirt, to me, was reminiscent of a much tamer version of Givenchy’s bulldog emblem and I dug the vibe the outfit as a whole gave off. Pretty groovy, pretty different. And that my loves, is what I aim to showcase on this blog – although I did start to forget the point of it recently but ayyy, I’m back now.

Also Portugal got knocked out in the group stages although we did win our last game (thank God for little mercies)! However my team Germany is still in it to win it which it probably will. My bets between Germany and Netherlands although it would be nice to see Brazil win. I think it would be really uplifting for its population and the economic crisis they’re in. Part of me (most of me) does disapprove of the brazilian government for bypassing the needs of its citizens in favour of hosting the World Cup but sigh… this is just the way in which the world works.

Sorry for getting so downcast towards the end of that, hope you all have a great week ahead!

I’ve been away for quite some time now and for that I apologise but now I’m back, back again xoxoxo
So, recently I’ve been very, incredibly, positively leaning towards the fringe trend. It’s fun, it’s sassy and very pro-boho chic if you pair it with the right apparel and accessories. The fringe trend has been around for decades so to suddenly highlight it now would in no way downplay its significance in the past. One of the reasons I adore it so would be due to its spread during the flapper era – 1920’s. And what’s not to love about flappers? They openly flouted social and sexual norms and did so with great style whilst listening to American jazz music. I have half a mind to base my 3rd year dissertation on flapper’s characterised in great works of literature. I haven’t even started university yet but this is just me thinking ahead as always.
How exciting is it that summer is here? It doesn’t quite seem like it but it is!
I won’t lie, my main source of excitement at the moment is the World Cup… although Portugal’s first game had me clutching my sides in pain. You do have to credit Germany for their tactical team and unified strength though. In my opinion, I think this is Germany’s year to win it.
That being said, keep Portugal in your prayers because my mother and the rest of her side of the family (including me) would be over the moon if they were to get anywhere close to semi’s. Good luck to England too!
Hope the teams you’re supporting fare well XO
