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 any kind of connection, go for it. Regardless of almost anything. You are an unicorn, so that almost that implies any sort of a bad attitude doesn’t include you, you 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 liked Consuelo Castiglioni at Marni? However, I hadn’t got it back in 2012 due to my belief that there’s always time. It was from the h&m x Marni collaboration. It was sold out pretty fast. Faith is, a couple years (!) later (4!), a friend gave it to me as a gift after me having mentioned about it. And the friend 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 to do so.

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 suggested everywhere to wear one. Around the head, neck, wrists, ankles. Oh, ankles! I haven’t yet checked this, but am going to. My summer vacation is just about to get started. Can you believe it? Me neither.

Anyway, I bet you are now thinking of your one dear piece and here I am yada-yadaing here by myself, but hat’s all right.

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

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