The Good ACNE

I have two types of ACNE in my life; one I’ve been struggling with for over a year and giving me a hard time, and the other which is my favorite brand in the entire world, delivering season after season. It’s a plot twist in my life really, but I’ve come to accept it as it is. Before 2018 was over, ACNE Studios gave me a Christmas gift by launching their full collection on Farfetch, one of my all time favorite e-tailers, giving me the opportunity to get my hands on more pieces and more sizes. Starting with these wool beret & scarf combo, tested at -25 degrees Celsius & I survived. . Grey wool Toronty scarf ACNE Studios via Farfetch . Grey wool oversized beanie ACNE Studios via Farfetch .

The Cold Nosed Reindeer

Elif the cold nosed reindeer, had a very frozen nose. And if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows. All of the other Québécois, used to stare and tell her to put more clothes on. They never let poor Elif, look fancy even one afternoon. Then one snowy December day, Montreal came to say: Elif it’s not that cold today, won’t you make a game out of your clothes and play. .

Severusly Black

Dark grey coat Choies // black mohair sweater dress H&M // leather trousers ASOS // black patent booties Zara I did it! I wore all black. It was so black that I very much resembled Severus Snape everytime I didn’t smile, which was not pleasant. Sure he’s a big hero and our favourite character but let’s be honest, he’s not a looker. Mental note: next time try wearing your hair up, not wear black trousers under a black dress and maybe choose a coat that doesn’t look like a witch cape. Oh wait though, all my coats look like witch capes. .
