Halloween may be over for another year but my obsession with the colour orange certainly isn’t. Even the makeup I’ve been wearing all month has been bright orange!

Autumn is finally here which means that it’s time to bring out the shades in your wardrobe that match with the harmony of the falling leaves on the trees. Autumn has always been my favourite season for two reasons; the first being that the colours are just so warm, so ethereal and the world is practically dyed a different shade of beautiful by the faint sun that shines through the trees as well as the multi-coloured leaves that fall from them. The second reason is because it’s just so delightfully cozy and that’s exactly why I’m coming to you for today’s post from the comfort of a Parisian cafe corner.

An Outfit Inspired by Ireland

Old Places, New Outfits

F.png

Hello my lovelies! Happy New Year to you all! I really hope that 2019 is off to a good start for all of you and that you’re feeling just as motivated for the new year as I am.

For our first post of 2019 I’m coming at you from Ireland with an outfit that I was absolutely loving during my stay there over the holidays. This ensemble is one that makes me feel so killer. I don’t know what it is about setting foot on Irish soil that makes me want to embrase a wilder dress sense but growing up by the mountains and by the sea always made me feel so inspired by the ruggedness and unpredictability of the landscape. Whenever I touch down in Ireland I love letting that edginess and impulsiveness shine through in my look.

How A Year in Paris Changed My Life Ft High Dive Apparel

Smooth Seas Don’t Make Good Sailors

highdive2

It’s been a little over a year now since I left my old life in Dublin in search of a new one in Paris. Being able to survive far away from home for such a long period of time and at such a young age is definitely something I feel very proud of doing.

Living abroad has taught me so many new things and has enabled me to overcome so many challenges that I never would have even been capable of imagining when I left Ireland as a naive twenty year-old. Today’s outfit is inspired by being able to adjust your sails to the waves life throws at you as well as the ways that living in Paris has changed my perspective on the world.

A Week in The Algarve

A Travel Guide to The South of Portugal

algarve22

The long summer evenings are finally drawing to a close and as a last hurrah to get my holiday blues in order before going back to college in Paris, myself and my family decided to take a quick trip to the Algarve to mark the finale of our summer. Located in the very south of Portugal, the Algarve is a region in which I found myself becoming utterly enamoured with the embellished sandy beaches, enormous cliffs and of course,  warm (yet breezy) weather.

Wearing Marzia’s Dress Part II

Hey everyone! Welcome back to another Parisian fashion post here on LaDameWhoFellToEarth.
Earlier in the month as I was scrolling through her website I noticed that the clothing line of one of my favourite YouTubers and fashion bloggers, Marzia, had gone on sale. Having always been quite inspired by her style and having previously coveted many of her unique creations from previous lines, I thought I would take the opportunity to nab something from the Amore line before it all sold out.
I’ve always been quite impressed by Marzia’s designs and if you’ve been on my blog for a while you guys probably know by now that one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe is the lace dress that she designed for her limone line. If you haven’t seen the post already and you are curious to see how that dress looks you can check the shoot out here.
As Marzia will soon be releasing yet another selection of her creations into the world I thought I would share with you a little review on this dress from her Amore line as well as the way I’ve been styling it lately.
The first thing I have to address of course when it comes to her designs is the price. Although her creations are all extremely beautiful and unique, they are rather expensive. I personally have been lucky enough to always get my size during the sales but at full price, I wouldn’t exactly call her clothing affordable, especially not on a student budget. However her clothing is ethically made which is important to take into account and the designs are like nothing you would find on the high street. Each time I unbox a new item from her collection I know from the very first touch of the fabric that these clothes are going to occupy a spot in my wardrobe for a very long time.

Where the Amore dress is concerned the first thing that struck me was how soft the material is. Lately the weather has been quite cool in Paris (don’t ask me where the summer went) so it’s the perfect dress to wear as you snuggle up with a hot coffee on a cosy café terrace. The material is soft without it being too thick so it’s a lovely breathable piece that is wearable during all seasons. The back of the dress has a very pretty, oversized gold zip which makes it a very detailed piece that is easy to slip on and off. The embroidery on the front is also elegant and understated but adds a unique allure to the outfit. The fact that it said « amore » really won my heart over when it came to choosing this dress. Being the Italian word for love, I feel like it captures a really charming aesthetic.
While this pinafore stands out quite a lot on it’s own thanks to its rich teal colour, today I wanted to add a little bit of extra intrigue by playing around with some contrast which is why I opted for a striped long sleeve paired with these spotty tights. Bringing together two opposing elements like spots and stripes can be hard to pull off but something subtle will always add something that little bit more unique to your look which is what I really love about this outfit.

A final note about Marzia’s clothing lines is that the sizing is quite generous. This is something I’ve noticed across each of her collections. If you love a more oversized look then it’s perfect, however if you are in any way a petite girl or you are more used to European sizing over UK and US sizing then I would probably recommend sizing down.
You can see in the photos that this is the XS on me but it’s still quite baggy.

And that’s it for this post. What do you guys think of the outfit? Are you excited for the release of Marzia’s new clothing line? Let me know in the comments below!
Thank you so much for reading and I’ll see you very soon,

Look Parisienne: The Graphic T-Shirt ft Stay Home Club

My Go-To Outfit In Paris Right Now

IMG_9555.jpeg

If you guys have seen my most recent post then you’d know that lately I have been completely and utterly enamoured by the adorable illustrations of Lorraine Sorlet, an independent illustrator here in Paris.

One of my top goals for 2018 when it came to our blog was to make more of an effort to support sustainable fashion brands as well as smaller artists, creators and designers. We live in a world where huge fashion franchises have a monopoly on what we wear and where we shop. This year I wanted to rebel against that. One of my all-time favourite places to do so when I go shopping is of course  Family Store UK, a Brighton-based boutique which is just an awesome place to shop for pins, patches, printed matter and apparel created by less well known labels.
