Chateau Chic/Twitter Newbie

Hat: H&M
Blouse: Daisy Rae Boutique
Suspenders: H&M
Skirt: Promod (old, very old)
Tights: H&M
Boots: H&M (old)
Necklace: HRHCollection
Ring: Pilgrim








Nowadays most of us look at suspenders as antique objects but back in the 60's they made some interesting fashion statements. As a lover of old Hollywood movies I always adored men wearing suspenders, I think they symbolize classic menhood, well with one exception :-): -> Steve Urkel
When I went shopping with an old university friend in Constance I discovered those cute burgundy babies and onsidered to add a pair of suspender to my collection of accessoire. It's just a fun way to accessorize your clothing and immediately bring that chic twist  and a unique vintage yet elegant touch to your look.
I have worn another look with suspenders here.


I think my whole outfit wouldn't be as audacious without suspenders. So little accents like these transform an outfit and can be the finishing touch to pull your color or outfits all together!

PS: I have finally jumped on the Tweet train (@fleurani) or however you describe my twitter name? hahaha oh my.  I have realized that I am probably the last humanbeeing on earth but seriously the bitmarks the hashtag etc. are overstraining me. I highly appreciate if you you have any tips for a Twitter Newbie? :-)

PSPS: I really need your help. I have a hair appointment on thursday. I had brown hairs 6 years ago and I am ready for a change now. Do you think I should get them coloured brown again or should stay blonde. The reason I am hesitating is that it takes a while to get complete blonde again. Would love to hear what you think?

  4. I could never pull off suspenders- but you are rocking them! I like you with both shades of hair- maybe do a really light brown? Then it's in-between your darker brown and current blonde :)

  8. Very cute Anni. I love your hat!! I think that chocolate brown you're wearing in the first picture is extremely flattering for you. So if you want a change don't hesitate and pick that color!

  9. Wow, you looked very exotic as a brunette. I think it really makes your eyes pop. I'd say go a warm brunette, like that first photo. Just lovely.

    I'm a blond actually. Went red about 2 years ago and have never looked back. This past trip to the hairdresser's though they did my colour too dark and I really dislike it. I'm trying to decide if I should try to start doing it by myself at home or not. So many people do it on their own and it would save me time and money, but I'm scared to wreck my hair.

  10. Love how you rocked the suspenders! I don't have a pair of suspenders but I do agree that accessories is what an outfit standout!

    You look great both a blonde and brunette. You eyes really pop as a brunette!

  11. I love this outfit, great fall hues and the top and skirt are so cute! Loving the tights too! As for your hair twin, I love you as a blonde, but if you decide to go brown, I like the colors of the lighter brown in your first photos on the left side you posted. But either way I like both colors!

  28. Ani, you look so adorable in those suspenders! Such a cute look on you! WOW, you look stunning as a brunette too! You are so lucky that blonde and brown hair look awesome on you. I tried to go blond-ish last year and I looked terrible. Can't wait to see what you decide!
