What I wore in Lisbon

Some of it, anyway. After a while it got a bit boring to take outfit photos in a hurry because it was raining or the light was too crappy... I thought I should relax and not think about it instead. Here's the few I did register.

As you can see, we got totally caught up in the rain. I am drenched and huffing and puffing too, as climbing the stairs up to the 6th floor is no easy business. Details: Green cardigan - Zara, Dress - sample, c/o Dorothy Perkins (from the vouchercodes.co.uk event), Necklace- c/o Name the Necklace, Shoes - Matalan , Nail Wraps - Machesa Fashion for L'Oreal

I bought this jumper because Mr D's grandparents back in the US have an adorable hairy chihuahua named Lovey. I miss them so it helps me remind me of them. Details: Cardigan - Zara, Skirt - Monki (swap with Lili), Hairy Chihuahua Sweat - H&M, Glitter shoes - Springfield, Hair Bow- Matalan

The light was fading fast on this one, even the details came out awful, but I have to show you my Star Wars tee. I just love it. Details: Green cardigan - Zara, Star Wars Tunic - H&M, Leggings - Tezenis (I had to pick them up in a hurry when I realized I couldn't bend without showing my arse to the world haha), Necklace- c/o Name the Necklace, ShoesMatalan.

Bonus: my very first video. Just some outtakes of Mr D and I walking around, the rain and some more rain. The music is by The Japanese Girl and you can download the whole album for free.

Hand painted signs of Marrakech

IMG_5650

I still have lots of photos from Marrakech... The last theme I shared was the cats, if I'm not mistaken. This time I'm sharing the hand painted and shop signs that can be found everywhere. I find them quite inspiring and charming in their own way, although the locals looked at us like we were crazy for photographing these things. Prepare for some image overload, but I am sure it's worth it.

Floppy hats and bell bottoms

IMG_8426

I've always thought the 70's got too much of a bad rep. Yeah, sometimes the home decors were a bit too brown and some clothes a bit over the top and in a bad way. I still don't think we should throw away a whole decade because of a few faux pas. I mean, why do we think we are so stylish? I always wonder what our descendants will say about the see-through legging trend... I sincerely think it's a lot worse than many of the 70's styles. When I look at the Cholas by Irregular Choice (worn below), all I can think of is 70's. Look at them and at the amazing shoe adverts below. Aren't they amazing?

To what I believe was my workmates amusement and giggles, I wore this 70's style ensemble to the office, complete with the I-can-barely-walk shoes. I still like the outfit though... Mind you that I had to keep the hat in place with my hand as the wind never stopped. I realized that is why I rarely wear it!

Details: Hat - H&M (also worn here), Shirt - Stradivarius, Furry vest - Primark (also worn here), Green Jumper - Zara, Cords - Vintage White Tab Levi's, inherited from my great aunt, Bangles - Poundland (classy, I know), Bag - traditional "choukaras" bag from Morocco worn as a clutch, Shoes - "Cholas", by Irregular Choice

There's a funny story about this bag. When I went to Morocco I decided I wanted to try and find a bag just like the one I'd been playing with at my grandparent's when I was a kid. It was a bag someone had brought back from Morocco for my Mum back in the 60's but somehow I have no idea what happened to it. It didn't take too long. One day as I was walking down the souk I found it and of course, I had to get it.

Yup, they're real white tab Levi's.

How about you? Do you like 70's style?
