LONG-LOST

Hiding in a folder named miscellaneous was this all black outfit that we shot in early November. I tripped over it during my annual new years computer cleaning, that also revealed many other long-lost photos, which made me realize once again how fast time flies and people change. But let’s not turn this into a sad nostalgic moment because there’s a reason why some things belong and should stay in the past. I’d rather focus on today’s look.

It was a few days after the AW x H&M collection was released, that I wore this dress together with the croc-embossed ankle boots from Nelly and the distressed B-bag. I seriously never thought that I would get so much wear out of these wang-clothes but with the right and most simple little tricks even a sheer-paneled shirt dress can be turned into an office-appropriate piece. You wonder how? Well just add a nude tank top underneath and you’re good to go. It’s easy as that.

I noticed that quite a few people were unhappy because they missed this collection’s key pieces and I did my absolute best to hunt them down for you, but unfortunately I failed this time. Hope’s not lost because my recommendation for you is to frequently head over to Vestiairecollective . The Wang pieces seem to pop up there quite often. You just have to be quick and a bit lucky.

I must admit that it came in handy to stumble upon this forgotten outfit, as I’m currently at home with a huge eye-infection that needs to be cured before shooting any photo. Now the sunnies in my last post do make sense right? 😉 My eyes seem to compete against each other when it comes to being more red and it honestly looks terrible. Can you believe that I called around 20 doctors specialized in eye-treatments and that the earliest appointment would have been in March?Seriously?My eyes hurt now, not in March. Thanks a lot doctors of Luxembourg. I had no other choice as to spend a few boring hours in the emergency section at the hospital in order to receive the right treatment. Crossing my fingers that my eyes will be better soon as the albino rabbit look clearly isn’t for me.

    Super cool – Wang’s designs are so edgy and modern. I wouldn’t expect it to be an office friendly dress but I’m glad you found a way to make it one! :)
