Benetton inspired Outfit.

Let's face it everyone, I like the United Colors of Benetton.
I love them?
adore them.
Me encanta Benetton, and I was excited to learn that a few minutes walk from my future university campus, in a mall I was in last summer, is a Benetton outlet! Little did I know we actually had them over here!

I don't think it will be as awesome as the one my and my friends visited in Munich a month ago (it was 5 stories tall, you know), but I'm still excited!

Today's outfit was inspired by my faaaaavorite ad photo that they have ever done. It's from the Spring 2008 campaign, and I saw it online, then in an ELLE Canada once at a tire store and promptly tore it out when the attendant wasn't looking...

It lives on my wall now, and I stare longingly at the pastel colours all the time.




(Suzy Shier top, DIY braid-scarf, DIY flower-like pins, Old Navy pants, American Eagle flats, Bluenotes tank)

Isn't it just a lovely image? Not me...the Benetton one, of course. hah!
For some reason it has always stuck in my mind, ever since I first saw it, and today was my first attempt to channel it.

I need some lighter colours, I think.

Hair cut on Thursday evening! Although I do sort of enjoy whatever whispy thing it's trying to do right now. Can you tell? It reminds me of the twenties.

By the way, I was wondering: What sorts of things would you all like to see on this blog? Do tell!
