Dusty Pink, pale pink, call it how you like!


For about two weeks now I have been waking up with a great feeling inside my belly. For those who don’t know I am engaged to an incredible guy and I still feel butterflies when he kisses me but the feeling I am talking about here is a complete different one. It is the one you feel when you found a job you finally like! I used to be quite upset to be working weekends or late nights but I don’t think it is a problem anymore as I am now surrounded by clothes and awesome people who loves clothes! Plus, I have what you can call an obsession with order so being in charge of tidying what I love the most, fashion, I can’t complain! I have done a few late shifts and I loved it, weekend as well are cool as it is incredibly busy you literally have no time to be bored and you better run! Anyway, I enjoy my spare this morning to write a little article on what I have bought in my H&M store where I benefitiate of a discount! With this last argument, I convince myself I have found the perfect job!

Wherever you go on the high street pink is a dominant colour this winter. On knitwears, on sheer shirts/blouses, on tops, on accessories, well pink is the colour to wear! So I decided to go for what we call at H&M the dusty pink and I picked a knitwear jumper composed of 90% Acrylic and 10% mohair. It makes me feel cuddled by like a soft warm wool and this last bought comes right on time with the cold weather! I made it contrast with a very natural white pointed flat collar from a chiffon blouse that I also got in H&M! I love the finished style that this combination gives me, I look like the first of the class which is exactly what I wanted to do so I am satisfied!

I took some pictures last friday after going to a casting to be fitting model for Topshop, apparently my measurements are not close enough to their perfect measurements of a size 6 so that will not be for this time but who knows what the future keeps for me! I did enjoy having little yellow and blue dot stickers all over my body for the day as I did not remember to take them off and noticed them in the shower, haha!

Okay! How are you guys?

I am going pretty well, it was another beautiful hot day up here in London! plus, I don’t think I told you guys but I registered myself in a Fitting Model Agency, so I am no longer unemployed! I didn’t tell you that either?! I decided to take a step forward in my career and work in Fashion, not only blog about it. so here I am getting a little closer to a bright Fashion future! Yeah!!! The next step is to find a sales assistant position in a Fashion Retail company, I’ve started giving my CV over London so let’s see what happen! So many exciting things happening recently!

Anyway that is not why I wanted to write you guys, it was to share with you some dramatic pieces of jewellery that I love a lot! You will see them just underneath my text! They caught my eyes in the Topshop Flagship Store on Oxford Street, I didn’t buy them, because at this moment, I had already spent spent far too much money on clothes… Hihi! I couldn’t stop thinking about them so I went on the Topshop website. I found them and I did some more research on them. I discovered they were made by a designer called Sarah Angold and she does each handmade piece with her team in her studio in East London, how cool is that? So those pieces of Jewellery I saw are in fact exclusive online and at the flagship store on Oxford Street! The intricate constructions made with tiny brass watch bolts, solid silver, gold and cast acrylic can take up to a day to build. With most runs capped at thirty, every limited edition piece is engraved with its own production number.
If you want to know more about Sarah, or her studio, just click on her name above and you will be directly on her website where there is a lot of cool pictures of her designs! Right under my words you can see one of her, next to her cool design sculpture at the London Fashion Week Style Lounge at the May Fair Hotel.

Yeah by the way, I put you the picture of the Topshop bag they give you when you buy items, I am so much in love with their brand at the moment, they get it right from their Pinterest to their Take away bags!!!

Xxx You bought it? Tweet me a pic of it around your neck @theapoupidou!
