About a boy

All pics by Vincent Ducard

Hi Dears;
No street style since a while, I figured we should do something about it.
This one is around that bombers. But it's so much more.

You know I changed , style , lifestyle, who cares anyway, but what matters the most to me is that I haven't really left my vintage side apart. What I loved so much. I only changed a bit from the years that interested me I think? And it goes along with my lifestyle. I was really into the fifties remember ? Well, my relationship was at this point kind of as narrowed as in the fifties (apart from the fact that I was actually with a girl, it was kind of that 50s structure, oddly.)
And now that I moved from decades , I might say 40 years after, well its weird but it's like everything goes along.
1990 touch of clothing, of music ( that techno scene I've been discovering and enjoying for the last few months) , and of course it goes along with my relationship where I stand free and happy of what I am living with my new special one.

Let me explain touch by touch , deeper and deeper all this stuff.

About that make up;
I had that feeling I could not be as over prepared like when I had my 50s style because of the boyish side of me which popped last year (remember?) so first I thought I should stop wearing make up.
But , thing is .. I like it ! It's fun an all covering what I dislike from me , well make up y'a know ! haha.
So then I started again wearing very discreet make up. I even started doing my brows again, but this is very new because it reminded me so much of the pin up look that I quitted this routine straight away a long time ago now!

Anyway , this is my new daily routine / products used:

For the primer; I shopped this on actually

Natural Collection, for the foundation and corrector, used with the tiny sponge from Primark
Revolution eye shadow palette still in love with the whole thing
Sleek eye marker
Rimmel Super Mascara
And  last but not least, the velvet mat lipstick from Kiko

Loving that brownish color (poke Phoebe from Friends , first seasons right!)

About the shoes;
I don't think I mentioned my new job ... Well I am now a member of the English Dr Martens industry!
Indeed , I made it !
Haha. It must feel like a very little detail but to me it means a lot.
(okay thats technically a french song... #privatefrenchjoke )
It means that I joined the Brits for once ! I felt so disconnected and far from "my" country here in France, but to be in Dr Martens, I'm very glad about that fact.
Second fact; the music. Oh my god , the music.
I meet again some rock playlist that could have been played in my last hair salon and this is dope. Finished the 60s , nostalgic sad and depressing song from Stories ... Maybe good songs, but god not something to work in all day, or you're turning even more depressed!
And last point; the House is a name, has a history. A vintage one, a subcultural one, a story from and among the people, a story from music and fashion.
So what could I dream about if not all this combo.

Oh, yes about the shoes:: the KAMIN are my last and new pair.
Shop them till you can !

About that bag;
It's my last birthday present from my special one Oli.
You can shop it at Brandy Melville shops (don't think they sell online; well not in France I reckon)

About that skirt;
So Grease is not it !
I haven't been wearing a leather skirt for ages; I love the style of this one mixed with one of my Stories jumper.
Love it ! My first purchase from ages in a vintage shop, next to mine:: the Vintage Partner

And to finish; on and about that bombers;
this is my birthday present from my best friend Nordine , when he saw it he wanted it for him but s a matter of fact this is quite too small so it is mine ! héhé. Goes along with this image that people have from me (that I cultivate I have to admit) of skinhead (I haven't say bonehead so no screaming around here!) mainly because of my family name! People.

Hope you enjoyed the reading!
See you soon folks;



  1. Lorena, this is a really fantastic post. I love that you went to the heart of the look, by, fittingly, speaking from your heart and sharing so much more than "just" what you wear wearing with us. Bold, beautiful, inspiring approach to fashion to blogging and certainly to your great ensemble itself, too.

    Many hugs & joyful holiday season wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  2. Love those Dr. Martens with the leather skirt!
