Classics and modern classics.. that is what this post is all about. Inspired by Victoria’s Secret perfume ‘Rapture’ — a name I absolutely adore — that I got myself some years ago. I saw it was on a discount, and since it is not being sold in the Netherlands, I looked up reviews on makeupalley.com (great site!). They were all lyrical about the perfume, getting comments from random people and strangers about their smell and men seemed to love it. Reasons enough to click it home as fast as possible. When it came in, I tried SO hard to like it, but it just didn’t work – it made me think of old grumpy women. Now that I’m such an old grumpy woman myself, I tried it again and must say I like it much better now! Anyway, it made me think of those classics (red lipstick, sleeve-hold-ups – which I accidentally found since my mom was tidying up her jewellery box today).. and how they perfectly match with modern classics like nude nailpolish (instead of the classic red one) and leather pants.
— Oh and.. oversized sweaters from your dad are always classics 😉 They should definitely bring this colour green back in the high street collections, the colour is so pretty!
