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

Californian Vibes

Pink is power. Sun is love. Beauty all around you is byzance (made-up french expression for describing something that is magnificent/ ‘grandiose’). Warm air is a divine hug. With all this combined, throw some aesthetically-pleasing clothes on you, whatever you feel like mixing together, it will always make you shine bright like the sun that first shines on you. Because YOU have to wear the clothes and not the clothes wearing you. 😉

Have a lovely rest of your weekend! sunkissed bisous to you all. X, -B

Barefoot & Backyards

The weather these days makes me feel like Summer time is soon approaching, and I cannot help but want to turn into more of a ‘natural-less-makeup-barefoot-silky-flowy-comfortable-garments’ kind of look.I love to be walking and playing around in parks, gardens, and just generally being outside within fresh air, without a cellphone, without the weekday hassles. I feel like it is so reviving and nourishing for our minds. In my opinion, it is important to remember the simplicity of life back then. To me, beauty is simplicity (but hey not all the time because I do love to be glamorous and regal). On the other hand, simplicity is subjective, and so I am not going into that path now.

Anyways, I hope you enjoy this one, and that you find yourself getting more outside. Today, I challenge you to express your style in the most of natural ways.  X, -B
