The-Summer-Of-2016 Souvenir

August 31, 2016


A souvenir which, actually, wasn’t even made in 2016, but in 2012 and this is how fashion is not just about the nowadays trends or “musts”. As long as you feel a connection to it, go for it. Regardless of almost anything and by “almost” I mean you not being an asshole and you are an unicorn so you can wear whatever. #becoolbegood

A connection?, you.

Being a person is getting too complicated, it’s time to be a unicorn, me.

Can you believe I wanted the scarf because I really like Consuelo Castiglioni? Ok, the scarf and Marni (it is a h&m x Marni scarf), too. Yet, I hadn’t got it back in ’12 due to my belief that there’s always time. There wasn’t  any and it was sold out. Faith is, a couple years (!) later (4!), a dear person in my life offered it to me as a gift after me previously mentioning it. And she hadn’t even worn it.


And so now it was mine. Mine, mine, mine. Oh, and I have been wearing it.

The whole summer and today, on 31st of August, I do not show any intent of stopping.

Every summer I have this one thing I could wear over and over again. I just can’t get enough of it. I couldn’t have let the last official day of summer to pass and not give a round of applause to the thing that will always be the-summer-of-2016 souvenir to me.

The dots, colours, silk, prints combination, Consuelo or the story above, Idk. But it got me and I wanted to have it with me almost everywhere. Just like when you love someone and you want to take them to your couch on Friday evenings, to your kitchen for breakfasts, on a blanket under the stars and talk about the universe at 3 a.m.. Pf!

A scarf has been a very big deal in ‘fæʃən for quite some time now and it’s been everywhere suggested to be worn around head, neck, wrists, ankles. Oh, ankles! I haven’t yet checked them, but am going to. My summer vacation is just about to get started. Can you believe it? Me neither.

Anyway, I bet you are already on your way to the closet to get that one piece out and I am yada-yadaing here by myself, but hat’s all right.

Now you are making connections and I get to be an unicorn!












In your mailbox would be ideal, yet in your e-mail is pretty close, yay!
