I'm very excited, because they proposed me to try out some of their dresses to take pictures and to give you my honest opinion about their garments, and of course I said a big YES! Scroll down to discover some of their beautiful dresses and to find a 10% additional discount!!!


❤️ Here are the two beautiful dresses I've selected ❤️



The shipping was quite fast, it took about a week to arrive in France. The dresses were nicely wrap is a beautiful pink paper with a leaflet that features some of their more popular styles.


To select the right size I've followed their size chart and went for a size 12 for both dresses. I'm a 96-73-103 fyi (I definitely need to cut out the cheese and sugar from my diet, but I fail every single time I try! If you have tricks to help me, comment below). For choosing the size and because I like to feel comfortable in the bust area, I select the clothes that fit my bust even if I need to rework my dresses at the waist most of the times. 

Let's move to the worn pictures!

----

The fit of the navy dress is perfect! Because it's a bit pleated at waist it's very forgivable and I didn't have had to modify the waist. The fabric is thick and even thought it's not lined it doesn't mark the underwear lines. I feel very glamorous wearing this dress and it's already one of my "go to" dress when I have to choose what to wear for going to the office.  



Also, it makes the perfect base for a Genie disneybound! I wore this dress at Disneyland Paris and the Genie recognized me, we even danced together for few minutes! It was sooooo cool, I felt very special!


----

The red dress is a faux wrap style with beautiful sleeves, stunning, perfect for summer. As the blue one, it's not lined. The fabric feels a bit thinner but heavier at the same time (even in french, I don't know how to explain it correctly)! It's very comfortable and I like how the fabric falls when worn, but at the same time it shows a bit more the underwear lines.

For this dress, I had to rework the waist as it's very very elastic! I think I should have chosen the size 10! Still, it's one of my favorite dress now, and I'll definitely wear it for valentine's day!


I hope you enjoyed this review! If you'd like to treat yourself, Pretty Kitty Fashion sent me a promo code just for you! With the code POM10 you can save 10% on your basket! Isn't it amazing?

Zapaka - Vintage inspired dress review


Happy New Year everyone! New year, same me. What's your projects for the roaring twenties? For me it's the same as always, traveling as much as possible! I'll start with a weekend in Marrakesh with my mother and my sister in a few days.
Anyway, we're not here to talk about my wanderlust, at least not in this entry. We're here to talk about clothes. Nothing's better than cute affordable clothes, don't you agree?

Today, I'd like to review a dress from the shop Zapaka
This is a sponsored review. They kindly sent me a dress so I can write you my true opinion about it. So, here we go. 


What is Zapaka ? "Created out of one girl's love for vintage clothing, Zapaka.com is here to serve like-minded retro and vintage-inspired fashion fiends"
First of all, what I like with Zapaka is that they take pictures of all their dresses. So the ones you see on the website are real, you should not have any bad surprise this way.


♥ The dress I choose it's the following one, in M size
Click on the picture to see it on the brand's website

https://zapaka.com/collections/1950s-dresses/products/green-pockets-vintage-dress

The dress has been sent to me on December the 30th and I've received it on January the 2nd. I'm very pleased about how fast it was! I've received the dress in a plastic envelope, wrap in a cute zip plastic bag with the logo of the brand (I really like that kind of bag to be honest!).



The dress doesn't have any lining, but the fabric used is very soft and opaque. I love that the dress has pockets!!!! Another very good thing, is that it doesn't need ironing! I'm terribly lazy and I hate to iron my clothes. After washing it (at 30°C, using the machine machine),  just hung the dress and it will be ready to wear once dry!


About the color, it varies if you look at it inside or outside. It looks more bright outdoors, as you'll see in the worn pictures.

About the fit, I've nothing to say! I fit like a glove! M size was the perfect choice for me! It's very comfortable. PERFECT!
It's a beautiful dark green dress, simple enough to be worn day and night. That's why I've decided to make a day outfit and an evening outfit to show how with small different accessories you can twist your style and go out just after work.


 Day wear: 


I styled the dress with a mak sweater cardigan (review coming soon!), a brown beret, a vintage bag, and flats. During the day I'm very active, so flats are the best option for running around!




 
Evening Wear:

For the night I like to feel fancy. I added Vivienne Westwood earrings, a matching belt, a pair of leather gloves and true vintage shoes and hat.


So far, I'm very pleased with everything! My only criticism is that because of the lack of lining, the dress has a bit of static electricity when you wear tights. Nothing that can't be resolved with a bit of hairspray (apply a bit of hairspray on the inner side of the skirt, it works like magic for static electricity!) 


This dress is 42€. You can take en extra 15% with the code "EXTRA15". 
More? The shipping is free worldwide! 

♥♥♥ 
What do you think? Do you like this dress as much as I do? 
A huge thank you to Zapaka for this collaboration ♥

Thank you for reading me and see you soon in a next entry

Miss Candyfloss - Gigi Bo Jumpsuit review


I know there are already tons of review of this glorious jumpsuit all around the internet. But, maybe you don't know about this brand or this jumpsuit. Or maybe you're here because you want to read another review, just to find an excuse to buy it, because -spoiler alert- this jumpsuit is fantastic and you need it in your life!

Well, you pretty much know my opinion about it by reading those lines... But let's talk about it anyway, starting with the brand.

Miss Candyfloss is "a retro brand inspired by the styles of 1940´s and 1950´s, with a twist of the 21st century’s sexy women [...] manufactured within Europe under fair trade conditions. [...] The clothes aren’t mass produced in large factory lines, so things like working conditions, salaries and good item quality can be kept a closer watch upon."





I know, it's pretty rare and impressive to read this nowadays. I have the chance to own several items from this brand and I can confirm that the quality is amazing.

The Gigi Bo jumpsuit is one of their best sellers. As said by Top Vintage (who regularly sell this jumpsuit) :

"Cassy, elegant, playful but also very sexy! The fitted top is nicely cut into a v-neckline and features a pleated bust part which is both suitable for a fuller and a smaller cup. The flattering 3/4 sleeves feature playful wrap overs and the pleated legs are true eye-catchers; typical forties"

What do I think about it? Well, pretty much the same.


You have to know that one of my biggest fears when I buy clothes, is that it would make my breast appear bigger than reality. I was afraid of that because of the pleats, but to be honest, it doesn't enhance or minimize the breast, it just compliments it - which I really appreciate. The fabric hugs your waist elegantly and the legs are very comfortable. By the way, you have to know that the legs are veeeery long, they may have to be shortened depending on if you want to wear the jumpsuit with or without heels!

Do I see a negative point? Yes, I do. Now I own two of them, I need them in every single colorway!!!

I hope I successfully convinced you. See you soon for a new entry ♥

Finland - May 2019


I'm back (again)! Well, kind of, because I won't post as often as before, because my style has changed a lot, because I have a busy life. But I still want to share here some of my pictures and my memories. This blog is my diary in the end.

This May my boyfriend and I went to Finland for a week to visit one of our friends. I thought you would have liked to see some pictures of our trip.

But first, let me tell you something: May is not the right period for visiting Finland. Not cold enough to be covered by snow and not warm enough to enjoy bloomed flowers. It's pretty much like the end of March in France, gloomy and cold. This said we really enjoyed our trip because:

- Saunas
- Vegan / Vegetarian food everywhere
- Lakes
- Friends

As Finland is expensive, we decided to take the bus to visit it. We decided to go with Onnibus company, which offers affordable prices to travel from one town to another. Also, their bus is comfortable! Our road map was short, we didn't have much time:
Our road map was short, we didn't have much time :


Helsinki -> Turku -> Tampere -> Helsinki.




The highest escalators I've ever seen were at Helsinki airport!


Turku:

Turku Cathedral

 Turku Castle / Saint Michael's Church

Turku is very well known for its castle. It's definitely a must do / must see. We spent 3 hours walking around this wonderful place. Also, you can dress as a princess, a lord or a knight to take pictures. Beautiful gowns, vintage shoes, cutleries, jewelry and so on are displayed in many rooms.


We enjoyed visiting Ruissalo, a small island near Turku where you can walk on sandy beaches, visit a nice botanical garden, but also admire colorful gothic style houses by the lake (this is what we liked the most).


Tampere:


Tampere is known as the Finnish Manchester. You can definitely see the industrial past of this town everywhere. We liked walking around the town to admire the buildings.


We had our first sauna in Tampere, and for this experience, we decided to go to the famous Rauhaniemi sauna. Built in 1929, the beach and the buildings retain almost their original appearance. Swimming in the 4°C lake after melting by almost 100°C in the sauna is very enjoyable, I mean, once you go over the first thermal shock!


A must do in Tampere is visiting the pyynikki observatory tower. The view up there is stunning. Also, you can find the best donuts in Finland at the observatory. So tasty! We also liked to walkaround the Pispala district where you can admire colorful cute houses.



Helsinki :

Random pictures of buildings, landcapes, food and happiness!


Some of these pictures have been taken while visiting Suomenlinna, the fortress island in Helsinki (it was windy and cold, but beautiful! The best part was having a beer and admiring the view sat on the rocks), some are from our random walks in town with our friend Iris. And the food you can see is vegan. It was so tasty I gained 2kgs in a week (thanks hummus and falafels) 



I hope I made you travel with me!
