ELEVEN THINGS YOU DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT ME
TAG, you’re it! It was with great enjoyment that I started reading the Eleven Things You Didn’t Know About Me post on Afrodite’s blog The Fashion Folio. Turns out she tagged me at the end of the article, urging me to get in on the fun and share my own eleven things. So here I am, turning myself inside out for the world to see. Warning: this list may contain weird confessions.
10 I love pandas.
It depends what day it is – I work part time as a stylist and use up all of my free time working on the blog. On Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and in the weekends, I’ll wake up around 9 and check my social media from within the confines of my warm and cosy bed. Then I’ll slowly move myself towards the kitchen to make a cup of green tea or a soy latte and some oats with almond milk and fruit (whatever’s around). After that it’s back to my desk, where I’ll reply e-mails, schedule posts and arrange collaborations with brands and labels. On days like these I try to shoot an outfit, which leads to editing and uploading photos, looking for links and writing text. This is all very exciting, right? ;-) I’ll spend my evening together with my boyfriend, going out for dinner and watching a movie. Never do I go to bed before midnight.
Come to think of it, I have dropped some serious cash on a few items so far – there’s the Balenciaga, the Mulberry, the See by Chloé boots and the Surface to Air sandals. I tend to spend money on bags and shoes, but keep my clothing on the affordable side. I was lucky enough to adopt my dad’s brand new car (thanks pap!) so I think the next big expense will be my own place to live. Or a Chanel Boy bag.
I suspect New York City would be my kind of place, but I would also love to check out Los Angeles. When it comes to Europe, on the top of my list are London and Barcelona.
Really? You still have to ask that?
I recently wrote an article about the things I love the most about blogging. Find it here. In short, the answer is: YOU GUYS.
Not having the guts to wear what you want. I’ve always adorned myself in pieces that I loved, but stood in front of the mirror doubting my choices more than once. Is this appropriate to wear on a school day? Will my classmates approve? Is this ‘in’? Moving to Antwerp really opened up my view on what you can and cannot wear – turns out you can get away with just about everything, as long as your hair’s looking good ;)
Actual magazine please! If I see something that catches my eye while flicking through the mag, I’ll grab my iPhone and snap a picture of it. I sometimes press my index finger onto the image in an attempt to save it. Doesn’t work yet.
Can’t really tell, I don’t think I ever really had a teen crush. Of course there was the Backstreet Boys and 5ive era (yep 5, real fans write it like that!). This calls for a musical intermezzo, now doesn’t it? Dance / dance / dance.
I hardly ever notice somebody’s eyes – I often forget what colour mine are. So no, I’m probably not attracted to a person’s eyes. I’d say sense of humour and ability to put things into perspective. I like smart people. And shoulders. I have a creepy thing for good shoulders.
I have really fond memories of London Fashion Week, strolling through the streets of my favourite city, soaking up the creativity and individualism of the people surrounding me. The people attending LFW are just so cool! But I love the je-ne-sais-quois and magical moments of Paris Fashion Week, and the busy beehive that is NYFW.
Only one way to answer this one.. COLLAGE OF CUTENESS.
We’ve come to the end of this show kids. I hope you enjoyed this way too egocentric post about me, and I’m looking forward to getting to know you better as well. Let me know if you want to write your own 11 Things post on twitter (@dogsanddresses) and I’ll gladly provide you with a couple more questions. Chain posts FTW!
