Sometimes you just need the magic to happen...and put on the pink flower-printed everything to get rid of the weird feeling. Neon coloured shoes help to keep the feet on the ground and watch the walking direction when the mind is a blur. Sometimes it's good to just disappear, "fall through the ground" as we say in Russian. And then reappear at the right place at the right time...like magic, when someone else just needs it to happen.
Sometimes your job is the only reason to wake up in the morning, and the only thing that gets you through the day are the sweet words from a close/distant friend. I was right to walk around Brussels dressed like a neon hippie, wasn't I?

Now I wasted so much time writing about fashion that someone else came up with that idea first and called the publication Cat People.
It has been published in English and Japanese, and is apparently available at Colette, which is a good thing since I just booked a Paris round-trip. Meowing of joy!

Sometimes I just love to feed you yet another crappy mirror shot. But sometimes the details are missing and the way I take pictures does not do my clothes any justice. Today I'm wearing two new things - freshly out of a package that arrived yesterday from &Other Stories webshop - the black neoprene quilted bomber and an ear frame. I've ordered the bomber once already, but it was too big and I had to send it back. Now I have finally decided that I cannot live without some quilted neoprene and placed a new order which arrived promptly and fits like glove! Who would have known that neoprene can be so warm and light?!
As the obsession for jewellery continues to grow, browsing through &Other Stories becomes dangerous. There's just too much choice. This time around I stopped mine at a very peculiar object - an ear frame. We've heard of ear cuffs in all shapes and sizes, but an ear frame is something new. It's a kind of flat frame that repeats the ear shape and hooks onto it so that a subtle golden shine is coming from behind your ear. If you look closely to the right-hand side of my head you can almost see it. The hair needs to be pulled back to wear such an accessory, oh well, why not?

What else do you do on a Sunday in the garden covered in bloom? You get the two white sausages (i.e. legs) out of the eternal winter shade into the sunshine, go say hello to the fish in the pond and share pictures of the cherry blossom on Instagram. Then you chill some. Pastel+neon hedonist.

This is the only way to describe 'The Terror's sound that hoovers somewhere beyond light and dark. Sunlit and haunted all at once.
This is 'You Lust' track featuring Phantogram - a band I've been paying utmost attention to lately. Enjoy!
But don't forget the sunscreen.
