I hope that you’ve had amazing holidays so far, Flames. I don’t know about you but I always tend to get a little pensive around this time of the year, also reflecting what has happened over the year, what I have learned, achieved, experienced…
My second year of blogging can be compared to a bumpy road- finding amazing opportunities and achievements at the very peaks of it – things I couldn’t even have asked for or dreamt of. I also went through more difficult times, when I couldn’t manage to bring my private life and blogging life together, which resulted in longer breaks. But it was exactly in those times that friends, fellow bloggers and readers had let me know how they appreciate this fashion fueled outlet of mine. I don’t know if you guys actually are aware that it was only thanks to your encouraging words and comments I knew it was right to continue the Flamboyante, no matter what! Thank you so much!!
For my last outfit post for this year I decided to take a couple of snap shots in my favourite jacket ever – an embroidered silk bomber jacket that can be worn on both sides by coveted designer Isabel Marant. When it had hit the stores almost two years ago I never thought that spending a thousand pounds on it was a crazy thing to do, it is the jacket I cannot live without, it has my name written all over it. In fact I wore it to many important events, so shame on me I never gave it the attention it deserved on my blog before. Today I am showing my personal style at it’s most realistic – because frankly speaking I don’t run around in high heels all day. If you’d ever bump into me in my home town Vienna, I’d probably be wearing something like this:
I was wearing: Isabel Marant silk bomber jacket, Asos Anytime biker boots, Zara leather insert leggings, Gucci Soho textured leather disco bag, Maria Black oxidized silver earrings, Isabel Marant ring and Made rings
Always remeber to be yourself and be proud of it, don’t let anyone tell you that you cannot achieve something because they couldn’t and collect those words of positivity, love and encouragement to keep them locked in your heart! Oh – and in case of doubt: wear a baseball jacket – that’s just always chic!
xox, the Flamboyante
