Going Pink

Unlike the previous post, I decided to dress up something more “myself” this time.

This is no doubt a suitable outfit for Recife’s never-changing weather. I got the sunset light on the shot but the brightness turned out over exposed. So I waited the sun to set completly to take a picture with a better lighting to post on my lookbook.

I don’t really have anything interesting to say… actually I’m just mumbling random words to fill this post.

Jeans Vest – Forever 21 (loose… but I still like it)
Baby Doll Top – Mom’s gift (a long long time ago)
Pink Tote – Handmade (bought on my favorite street market)
Purple & White Stripped Shorts – American Eagle (5 DOLARS!!!!)
Pink Gladiators – Schutz
Hat – Annual Art Fair

This is so lookbook.nu

Okay, to be very honest, this is not really my kind of look. I did it on purpose cause I thought it was very “lookbook.nu” material and I wanted to see some people’s reaction (and it was totally as expected). Anyone who follows it might’ve noticed how one person’s obsession grows to everyone’s obsession there easily… until it spreads out of the internet. Isn’t it how trends are supposed to come up? Anyways… it is a bit late to mention sandals (or ankle boots, or peep toes) as a trend as it might be already fading… but I decided to give it a try. I don’t know how far this trends can get to me… I’m getting sick of some stuff. I don’t even feel motivaded to update my lookbook anymore. Seems like everyone is dressing the same way now (and yeah, the look on the picture is kinda an irony but done on purpose).

Anyways. On the look:

  • Silver Dress and Belt, Opção Jeans Wear (love it or hate it.. but who knows the brand gotta reckon that they have improved a lot)
  • Jacket, Limelight (great store, great prices, worst website I have ever seen)
  • Ankle Boots, Bottero (brand that you can find ANYWHERE in Brazil)
  • Necklaces, Vintage Gifts (the firefly one my grandma gave me. the long one has a creepy story)
  • Present Memories

    Me @ Fort Lauderdale

    Although some of this picture might show some solitude they picture some moments of the best time of my life (so far).

    I find myself reminding some moments with my roommates or coworker or even random friends from november ’09 to february this year… I wish that time would repeat over and over every single year. I know, I have mentioned it before. But it makes me feel good reminding these moments constantly.

    What those pictures might seem to look (although not real) may picture what I do feel at the present moment.

    Sounds confusing. But it’s just random mumbling of someone who runs this blog for random mumbling.

    In fact, I should change it’s URL. What I might do in a near future.. or not. Does the name BellaEpoque sounds nice? (don’t make me feel stupid by correcting the Bella to Belle. It really means to be my name as it’s actually spelled)

    Needless To Say that I love them in PJ (meant to rhyme. silly i know)

    (this picture totally breaks the solitude mood of the post)

    Obviously you can tell that they were my roommates. We were all in PJ except Mariana cause she had the worst work shift ever. As each of us had different shifts, the rare times we could all be together were precious.. like this one on the picture.

    I mean.. what could be better than spend some time together in comfy PJ with the best roommates ever drinking a cup of capuccino french vanilla and eating cookies during an endless girls talk during a cold morning in a warm room?

    Vista Way's 1007 – Revival

    From June’s 19th to the 25th, I had the chance to meet with my ex-roommates in Maceio and here in Recife.

    Unfortunatly, Mariana and Andrea couldn’t go. So it was me, Robe’r’a, Lu and Linoca.

    Not much to say about the meeting except that we could feel a taste of being in Vista Way’s 1007 once again.

    Besides reminding of all important and funny things that happened there.

    I wish we still lived all together.. in the same apartment. They were the best roommates I could ever have. ): I miss them so much.
