Hello, folks! I can't express how pleased I am to see four more of you in that little box at the right - no matter how little time I have for it, I do love this blog with all my heart and I'm certainly delighted to see that I'm not the only one! 

I've been ridiculously busy this whole week - school and the like - and even now I should be working on my French project. But I'm not (it's so boring!). Instead I'm here with you to share something I made a while ago out of a few pics from my old looks. Once upon a time I had a free moment so I stylized four pictures to look like something from almost a hundred years ago! Guess which eras I chose?

Yep. Twenties and fifties. 'Cause they're soo in style.
actually I have no idea how that choice happened, haha

Anyway, here they are, without further ado:

You've seen this one before, but not the next one...

Hello, both my lovely followers (there are twelve of you now, my extended family is growing rather nicely!) and those of you who have wandered over here accidentally and are rather confused by the title of this post. I can even read your mind, no, really! You're thinking something along the lines of: 'But this is a fashion blog! She isn't supposed to be inspiring me to live on, to stay happy, unless it concerns fashion directly! Sheesh!' Well, 'kay, maybe sans the sheesh, but you get the picture.

But then, all of you random people reading this are also intrigued by this unlikely title, eh? Which is exactly why you will indeed read on to see what I have in store for you.

Okay, so since the link to this blog can only be found on my LB page (yes, I chose not to let my Facebook friends know about it; no, I am not weird) most of you guys have probably already seen my latest look. For those of you who HAVEN'T, well, that isn't for long! It's crucial that you see this look before reading the embarrassing words I'm about to write, so here it is, brace yourselves:

This is actually one of the rare occasions when the look turned out better than I had thought it would when planning it! I guess it's because it's a tiny bit more casual than the others, as well as the fact that it's much closer to my everyday style. I mean, it's not like I never wear all those pretty strappy dresses, but I just don't wear them quite as often as cute mini's and baggy shirts.

That being said, read on for some very nostalgic, melancholy and obviously sappy words.

So because I'm such a nail-polish freak, I decided to show you what my nails currently look like as well as a few new polishes I bought yesterday as part of my glitter obsession!

But first of all, I want you to know that I am neither a totally glamorous airhead nor do I support such behavior in girls (or guys, for that matter). Obviously there's no reason for a girl to give up beauty and nice clothes altogether, but why become obsessed with it so much as to give up other hobbies and interests altogether? Sure, it's harder to be a multi-talented person with views on everything AND look like a million dollars, but who says the easy way is the best?

Okay, rant done! Read on for nail polish galore.

YOU'LL NEVER BE POPULAR: Why kills the artist in you

Everyone more or less involved in the Internet fashion scene has at least heard of Most of you even have accounts on there, and regularly post new outfits. I'm no exception - I got hooked almost two years ago and returned last month because its pull was too much for me to resist. And before you read this somewhat angry rant, I want you to have no doubts about my future - Lookbook is here to stay, leaving is out of the question, DESPITE - or even because - of what I have to say.

Intrigued? Then read on.


Hello, everyone! Nice to see so many people in my subscribers box. Nine is the largest single-digit number, after all, and it just gives me hope to see that someone in this world wants to hear what I have to say! So thank you, darlings, I'm sending my love with this post.

Anyway, today's post (article? no, too pretentious) concerns me in the most egotistic way imaginable. I plan on showing you what inspires me and my style right now - music, movies, pictures, random pieces of Internet that I stumbled upon in my pursuit of something a little more beautiful, a little less ordinary.

Let's begin, shall we?

Hello everyone! This is me, Alice again, still with you on this somewhat tedious yet endearing little blog. And today's post will differ slightly from my usual style - there will be neither narcissism (i.e. numerous pictures of me in a dress) nor mindless ramblings (i.e. check last two posts). Nope, today you'll get a refreshing break from my usual rambly style because I decided to feature someone verrry fashionable!

So... Introducing Amanda R of Something Fashionable! Enjoy, ladies and gents:

Elie Saab Spring-Summer 2012

Hi everyone, Alice here, once more! So I decided that since this blog is technically supposed to be dedicated to fashion (and not just yours truly in various subtly unfashionable outfits) I should write a bit about the trends of the following season, DESPITE the fact that I rarely pay any attention whatsoever to what designers say should be worn. And yet... The other day, while my nails were drying (bright retro red!) I leafed through a few of my new magazines halfheartedly only to discover that the new trends were VERY much worth attention this season!

Anyhow, without further ado, ladies and gents: I present to you the top THREE hottest trends of the season!

So I decided to start a series of posts about 20th century fashion icons: actresses, singers, models, politicians, etc, that helped shape the fashion industry and help it become what it is today!

And to start I will talk about the actress that inspires many girls even today: Audrey Hepburn, born Audrey Kathleen Ruston. Her style is pure minimalism with a very classy vibe. Apparently, she was the kind of girl who never went out unless wearing mascara! That sounds like a good rule to live by. Always look your best.


One of my favourite dresses, I think. Zara just keeps enchanting me with their amazing sixties silhouettes and vibrant colours!

Dress : TRF by Zara
Pumps : Bershka
Flower : H&M
Purse : Lindex
Bracelet : New Look
Belt : ?

Well, hello there, whoever you are, and welcome to my blog... I'm not very good at this type of thing, but I suppose we'll see how true that is in the future. Anyway, this is my new look. I wear this to school rather often (minus the thigh highs), so it may seem somewhat boring, but I love the schoolgirl vibe it has.
