Summer Look n°2

When in doubt, go for a simple white over the shoulder dress and pair it with a handmade straw hat and bag to keep the look minimalistic and effortless yet chic and classy. Wear this look to go on a boat, for a walk in the countryside, to lunch in on a park picnic, or even as a day date look! Sunflower’s pride my lovelies! 😉

Stayed tuned to summer look n°3, coming to you soon. Meanwhile, shine bright! X, -B

Summer Look n°1

Sporty chic- Yes, this is what I decided to put on today to go about Saturday morning and afternoon, spent getting a late breakfast on sunshine-and-sunglasses filled terrace, not taking myself too seriously and being goofy with my foamy cappuccino. Smiling at passersby and absorbing radiating energies from everyone and everything that surrounds my pastel colored headband. This look was so easy and comfortable to style, wear, and pull off. Light-hearted feelings given by a sustainable and still energy given by a light outfit…given by TDA 😉 Here is an important cycle, one that makes you feel dynamic. The book intelligence will tell you that absolutely everything that you live and feel within your inner self is produced by your brain; how unpoetic and down to earth lovelies… Keep a little magic in your life, don’t let the tricks be revealed to you, be dynamic with your look, adapt it to your thoughts, to your interior poetry and then let this look affect you with its magical energy. I know… how hard not to let your thoughts take over. But sometimes the question is ‘why would we always be into controlling our thoughts?’ Let things happen. Let your clothes influence your feelings and states of mind. Finally do not forget ; EVERYTHING MOVES, ALWAYS.

What to wear to the laundromat

When you think you have nothing to wear and/or it is laundry day, take my input on what I am sharing below.

First, don’t pick up any drabby sweater-material-tracksuit-like ensemble that you have handy (I know that it is easier said than done). But, instead, why not trek into the laundromat with a full on vintage look? Well, that’s what I did today ;D (see below). It was quite a fun change, because usually I would have gone in sporty attire.

I have been thinking about a few things lately, and what I arrived to is this. Dressing well is a strong core for a solid mentality. How you feel carries you for the whole day, and no that is not fully influenced on WHAT is on the INSIDE. Yes, that is a part of it. The other pulling factors come from WHAT lies on the OUTSIDE. The inside pulls on the outside and the outside pulls on the inside- hmm are we achieving perfect harmony? I tell you YES. So, when we do the little, daunting tasks that are part of the everyday mundane, why not do them in style- in spunk? in love? in a smile? in a calm outlook? in italian vintage if you want 😉 ?

Outfits are a presentation of a kind of you to the world, let me be frank with you. Clothes were invented for a purpose (to cover and protect obviously) but no not just that. Express. Be audacious. encourage others to do the same. And might as well take advantage of the fact that there are so many lovely kinds of patterned silk shirts that you can spend days matching them with the oddest trousers and bottoms that you can think of, just to step out to perhaps do your grocery shopping. There’s some inspo for your groceries. Let your imagination take you to places, literally! Anyways, you get the point…

Hope I inspired you there for a moment, at least. X, -B

What to wear to a day party

Happy Friday my lovelies! Today, I bring you a precious look that I’ve been wanting to wear lately. An ensemble that can make you feel like a fairy princess (YES). Mixing floral-ruffle-denim with see-through delicate lace, fixed by nothing but an eyes catching, rhinestone studded belt. Yes, because why not? I say, dare to be risky in blending different textures and materials together. Fashion can be dictated but style cannot. Carry the outfit within the attitude you want to transmit. If you’re confident in the way that you love what you’re wearing, then it will follow. I suppose the goal of all this is to say dare to take risks, trust your aestehtic intuition, and don’t think too much about what you SHOULD wear instead of what you WANT. I hope you enjoy what I have put together, and I look forward to our next session. Until Then.. X, -B

Hello Yellow

Summer weather (unofficially) has arrived, and I am officially back reporting to you from where I stand. Apologies for not having posted in awhile. I have been more active on instagram these past few days, so make sure to follow me there to stay up to date (@thedirtyaesthetic). All you need to know to be caught up is the following. I have been enjoying dazzling summery days in beautiful sunny towns. Today, I was captured wearing a yellow floral dress that made the day an immense ease. And no, I didn’t even have a cup of coffee to get me through. So here I am, swirling in my dress, and remembering that to be at ease is to be yellow mellow. Be mellow (not yellow), and enjoy your weekend. See you soon! X, -B

The “Casquette-Visière”

Idea and creation of the week by Tobias FØR. Allowing me to see the world through different eyes, swapping visions like I swap my caps. Sometimes, when you feel like wearing sunglasses plus a hat is way too much, why not having one thing that combines the both to give you the look you want. The “Casquette-Visière” infuses the two into a one fabulous phenomenon. It is a one-piece thing, convenient, casual, and yet futuristic. We can all thank Toby for that! Cheers X,-B

Furry Friends Are Forever

Today is ‘TDA’ for ‘The (most) Dandy Animal.’ Of course, those fabulous furry friends require time, energy, and a lot of love. To give attention to the camera for a little while is dangerous, he might bite your attire, rip it off with his gigantic paws. And if you take a walk in the forest, you better carry some honey to trade your escape, because his charming face will devour you. He is of course a fashion designer on the side..remodeling your leggins with his teeth, cutting your top to make it hole-y, and sneezing on your sunglasses to make them blurry.

But after all, isn’t he the best friend of humankind?  See you soon 😉 X, -B

Do not mess with my Hijab

And I am back, world! I apologise extensively for not having posted in such a long time. I have been on holiday and am currently preparing for my final exams (yikes I know but do wish me luck). Anyways, let’s chat…

A month ago, my team and I thought of an idea for a shirt, and it is this below:  ‘The Do Not Mess with My Hijab’ shirt. This very special shirt (created and designed by the TDA team) is dedicated for all my hijab-wearing beauties out there. I stand before you wearing an emblem of the utmost support, respect, and admiration. You might ask why, and I would answer you with the following. I believe in the power and importance of self-expression, and how much more we all need to support and encourage one another. I am here to remind you to express; never suppress. Through fashion, I am able to do so much of that. Wearing a garment that has some words of value empowers me to expand my thinking sphere, to have the power to say ‘um why not? because really who is who to say ‘no’ but YOU. All this to tell you, I hope you’re wearing something extraordinary that makes you feel GOOD, happy, satisfied, empowered, warm as sunshine, and as smooth as the ocean floor (okay I had to say that!)

X, -B

How to style a vibrant jacket

I am in love with Asian fashion and style. Specifically, I am obsessed with this brocade mandarin collar traditional Chinese Jacket. Everything about it is just splendid, the detailing of the patterns, the green and pink together…marvelous! So I was a bit flustered on how to style it in my wardrobe, so I brought this jacket out of its traditional wear and turned it into a modern-casual piece to top off a jeans and white crop-top look. And voila! Below here is what I arrived to. I pulled my hair in a tight top-knot to have more of an emphasis on the jacket and the simplicity of my ensemble.

Let me know what you think of this look. Hope you enjoy this little style blurb of mine. X,-B
