Need a smile?

Finally something theatrical, lately most runway shows have forgotten that they are simply that. A show, merely for entertainment. I don't know about you but I prefer something outrageous rather than something wearable. Obviously, they have to have something (not necessarily shown) to sell, but when I watch a fashion show I want to be wowed like in Agatha+Ruiz+De+La+Prada. She has a lot of references to Dali, with the ants, eggs, crutches but she didn't make it gloomy or dark. And those tights are delicious.


On another note, my outfit, we've mentioned that we have been really into DIYing, I turned the floral skirt into a_puff skirt.
What I wore: Flowy shirt from H&M, black tights from a drugstore, puff skirt I made (originally from Salvation Army, and the ribbon from a craft store.
