Hello dear Dresscape followers 🙂
Claire writing. We are back to fashion world this week! I am very excited to present to you an article which was rather special for me. I particulary enjoyed preparing it. First because of this place: it’s in Divonne, France, really close to where I live. I spotted this special setting a few weeks ago, and I became obsessed with it, I really wanted to do something there. I am so fascinated by abandonned places, which look like they’re stuck at one point in time. I find it very inspiring! Oh and by the way, we are soon going on a trip and there will be an article about it very soon 🙂 In the meantime, you can follow our adventures on our Instagram!
About my outfit, it is the result of a big experimentation. I found a tutorial explaining how to fringe your jeans, so I tried it out on this old Lee jeans I had and I think it looks totally awesome, what do you think?
I used this flannel shirt as a jacket. I bought it in a vintage shop in Amsterdam last year and had no idea of how to wear it. Now I do 😉
And I’m wearing a bodysuit as well… If you had told me a few years ago that I would wear bodysuits in a near future, I would probably have laughed. An item I found ridiculous and weird became a piece I really like.
Finally, about the choker, I ordered it from a very nice Etsy Boutique called Twirly Trinkets. I chose a velvet choker and had it made sur-mesure, handmade by the lovely Penny who owns this boutique. Chokers are so trendy right now, and I found myself falling in love with these again (after the 2000’s tattoo chokers’ trend). Chokers can actually be very flattering on a thin neck, as it will put the spotlight on it. Nonetheless, I wouldn’t recommend wearing one if your neck is rather wide, as it the attention will be drawn on it.
That’s it for today, see you next week! 🙂
