Giving you an Insight

Hey girls! Do you ever happen to see something you absolutely love and want, only to realize it's actually menswear?

Meet the Topsy Turvy t-shirt, from Insight's artist collaboration line. This one in particular, is printed with artwork by Justin Lee Williams. Just do a google image search with his name - it will leave you speechless.


Well, a mens t-shirt? Who cares? I wanted it! And getting it for free for helping with a project didn't hurt either... Thanks for that Athlorama Sports and Dimosthenis!

Anyway, looks like it was fate for me and the Insight t-shirt to meet, because a few weeks after that, I got a newsletter from an online boutique, saying they were having a huge sale on all their womens Insight clothes. In other words, they made me an offer I couldn't refuse. Let me just say, I got four items in total and I'll leave you with that for now. Big post coming next, featuring all my newly delivered goodies.

If my camera decides to behave, that is...

Inevitable, after all


Well, she already is incredible and invisible, so I guess it was inevitable for Sugahspank! to start her own blog too, a fact I discovered thanks to her leaving a comment on my dear blog-friend Lucia's latest post. I have already mentioned her before in this post, where the picture above was taken from, but if you can't be bothered to click on the link (seriously, how lazy are you? just click already!) then let me just tell ya that I admire her for her unbeatable style as much as for her amazing music.

I already know Sugahspank! is just a girl like the rest of us who really likes clothes, so should we hope to see some fashion-related posts from her?
We'll just have to wait and see...

For the time being, show her some blog-love at

Running errands

Now the whole studying thing is over, I love getting my life back to its normal pace. This Monday morning, I got up at 10 and made a huge to-do list. Boringly, most of it was about house chores, but there was also a "pick up parcels from the post office" entry.
Which, needless to say, got crossed off first thing!
Expect photos of my newly delivered goodies tomorrow.

Pegged grey sweatpants, H&M. Plain black t-shirt, ZARA. Anthracite grey long cardigan, ZARA. Stripy scarf, BERSHKA. Silver ballet flats, ZARA.

I need to file a complaint, Im hoping I'll have fellow complainers!


Dear Marc Jacobs
Come on!!!
It really isn't fair
you could have at least launched this idea for fall
it would be great because
our identical collections
could exist at the same time
Our ideas are always intertwined, but this is when it counted!!!
The teachers stick you on the same collection for a year and a half

I have no choice, it all has to go!

but really
Ive worked on this collection for a year and a half!!
luckily I haven't sewn anything yet!!!

Now I'm going to be behind
in my fashion school thesis!!!

It is your fault

I have to re-work everything

see for your self.

I mean come on look at these pants below
stop it!!!!!!!!!!!
