Today I want to show you two items that have worn quite often in the past few days. As the title of this post suggests, one of them is relatively old while the other is definitely new.
These are my beloved Docs. I don’t remember the exact model number but it’s definitely one of the Pascals (8 eyelet). I’ve had them since autumn 2012 and they’re definitely my favourite pair of shoes. I wear them a lot and the fact that they still look nice and not-too-beaten tells you something about their quality. I’ve never got a single blister from walking in them and they’ve kept my otherwise icy-cold feet really warm. Now I’m thinking of getting another pair but this time it’s going to be a black patent leather style. If I manage to get an immaculate pair, that is. For some reason, the ones I tried in the shop (brand new, in fact) were already damaged!
Surprise, surprise. I love Jasmine-Immortelle-Neroli EDT. It was designed by Olivier Baussan and Pierre Herme, two French masterminds in their own right. It’s definitely a feminine, floral scent, which isn’t overly sweet and not at all citrusy, despite the top notes of lemon. Basically, I could bathe in this scent (as it turns out, it’s totally possible, hehe). I find the sillage average but that is a good thing – I don’t want to choke everyone with my fragrance, no matter how nice it smells. 😉 It lasts from 4 to 6 hours on my skin, which I find excellent, but I haven’t yet found the right formula to make it last longer.
Stay tuned for the next installment: Something Borrowed, Something Blue!
