I don’t know how you guys are dealing with SUNDAYS generally speaking. For my part, it’s the day of the week I don’t particularly enjoy. Can’t say I hate it, obviously we all need time to rest, but I often wished I could do something really special on Sunday. Not only having brunch, not only meeting friends.
Until we decided to organize a fashion brunch at home with some friends. That’s what we did last Sunday, and it’s been a real nice experience I would recommend to everyone.
The idea: a group of 2-3 persons invites each 2 or 3 contacts. Make sure that they have a similar taste and size, I know it’s not always easy. Otherwise you can organize a shoe & accessory brunch! So beyond the fact that you’re enjoying precious time with friends with cool foods & drinks, the benefits are diverse:
1. It’s obviously an ‘eco-conscious’ process.
By this occasion you’ll clean your closet, give some stuffs you don’t wear anymore and get ‘new’ ones. Make sure that the stuffs are undamaged, and don’t give something you won’t get -please let this parka you wore in 1996 at home : )
2. You might discover a new way to combine something you actually wanted to exchange, OR/ AND simply give each others styling tips.
3. It brings relationships to a new level. You’ll laugh a lot, believe me. Stuffs are a strong connexion to people, I’d never though that my Sandro jeans would make me laugh to such a high point > thanks to Luana, her new ‘dating’ pants looks amazing on her!
Meet new people, share something with them, it’s finally the best plan on a Sunday afternoon!
What comes out from my closet:
A striped cropped pullover by Zara, Sandro red pants (with zips along the legs!), Sonia Rykiel scarf.
And what comes in:
Leather brown cuff, velvet oversized vintage top, Sandro white dress and cognac leather skirt. Can’t wait to wear them for fall, and already wish ‘viel Spass‘ with my past-beloved items…
Do you ever happen to buy a (strange) stuff only because its material was appealing to you? Of course I did. No later than last month. I get this huge men shirt on the flea market. I knew that I’d never wear it, and to me it was clear that a new home decor item would come soon. Actually I already made a similar experience here, but it’s been a while.
So it is now a pillow case, and it looks much better than on myself… I liked the mix of colors and the rough material effect.

What you’ll need:
-a XXL men shirt,
-tick thread and needles,
-a sewing machine,
-cotton thread in 2 colors (for the pom poms)
Mixing classic items with unconventional pieces doesn’t only suggest some creativity, but proves that it might be worth, not to take fashion too seriously. I like this idea anyways.
An example with this ‘Classy’ watch by Daniel Wellington. The label focuses on long lasting designs for both men and women, with a clever removable strap system. I’m currently wearing the 3-colored strap -so frenchy!- that I combined with this transparent white jacket.
Getting a ‘new’ watch during winter, only by changing the strap, is already on my plan…
And for those who are looking for a preppy watch like this one, you can get 15% off on your order on www.danielwellington.com with the promotion code PenysDW. It works until 30th September 2014.
