Shake your tailfeather....

A friend's coming over from Mexico and will be staying with us, so the weekend has been spent pretty much cleaning. Our guest room hosts all my spare "rubbish" i.e. clothes, accessories, shoes, vintage, etc.....and so I had to clean it all out/compartmentalise/rationalise. I'm buggered from cleaning! Can I get a weekend to recover from my weekend?!?! Here's where I iterate that lovely concept of the 4-day working week. Which I could arrange with work, but would need to work much longer hours for.....hmmm.....

I wore this dress out, and some random guy came up to me and asked why it was so loose fitting. He then proceeded to give me styling advice. About wearing a belt to cinch it in. Etcetera. Really.....how very metrosexual of you buddy. Aren't you just supposed to enjoy the view? I kid. Point taken. Although after a few long island iced teas....not quite sure there was a point, or what it was ;)

p.s. I've recently discovered the brilliance that is Sportsgirl's matte nailpolish. I'm wearing a turquoise blue here. Yours for $7.95. I've since bought a matte mint green, and a matte coral. Who knew I was capable of such girlie-ness?!?!

Did we have a good weekend? And please don't say it involved cleaning. I'm banning that word. Seriously. In all seriousness though, how did you spend the weekend?

dress, vintage. shoes, camilla and marc. rings, diva and asos.

Mmmmh Frankly I am not sure this Dress needs a belt to sparkle, your boots already instil a ("Fetish/Roaring") twist on it !!!
ps: AND the Soccer's coach who gladly slumbers on me can Only wish you Bon courage for the cleaning Dear Anika !!!

à Bientôt, Antoine

I really don't pay attention to what guys say about my style unless he's hot and has the potential to be my boyfriend. lol. But, in all seriousness, I think your dress is fine the way it is and Anika you so have great fashion sense!

marvellous shoes! sweet, don't worry about others' comments- ya know, that a couple of days ago an anonim wrote to me that I'm fat and I should do sth with it, since later it will get even worse, and after writing back, she replied that that's sad that so much people are over-weight and don't know what a proper diet is! embarrasing, but nevermind.
Have a fashionable week! ;**

As for my weekend nothing special. Saw the Texas Chainsaw Massacre in a viewing a friend of mine held. Pretty damn disturbing.
