Hiding from the world under a glam hat

I never was the kind to try my best to stand out of the crowd. As my mother taught me, it’s best to let the crown put you first then to force yourself into.

But sometimes, advices are made to be broken so last weekend I did, I have to admit this, tried some of my best to stand out. And, well for my surprise it actually works.

I’m not the kind to underestimate myself but I do believe that too much confidence can ruin a good person, and unfortunately I have many examples like this.

So, to a very cute and intimate event I put on the gala dress, the high heels and the all professional make up and stand up as the one that needs and will capture all the attention.

And because a glamour’s dress will never be perfect without the big, mysterious hat, I managed to take a small break for an on the street, stylish (from my point of view) photo shoot.

The results below:

Fashion advice of the day!

Do trust you mother for advices, even if they are a bit vintage for this days, the life and experiences made them see things from another perspective.

But, some days your gut might just be the best solution. And take that glam dress, high heel and wonder the street in the most elegant way possible, if you can manage to get a photographer with you even better! Oohhh and don’t forget the hat!

Offer happiness, receive kindness!
