Algorithm of an obsession

Sneaker dilemma

Saucony beige suede sneakers. How cool are those. SO COOL. I need them. I NEED THEM SO MUCH!!! I can't live without them. They will become a perfect companion for all my summer dresses, ALL of them, which is so rare, because, hello, they are beige! Aaand they will look perfect with my fake tan. It's not summer yet, but it will be soon. Three more months to go. In the meantime, I will pair them with my office trousers for casual fridays. Or even wear them when I'm on my way to the office and change afterwards to get the cost per wear.

They will look perfect with my bare ankles and checked trousers. And beige trousers with my new sweater for a total beige look that Kim K would definitely approve. It’s not like I care. Wait. They are out of my size… Does somebody else sell these? I am asking to the omniscient searching devise. There is a pair. Half size too big. Half size is ok, but they are much more expensive. Not sure I am willing to spend this much.

Let me explore other options. I need to search for beige suede sneakers. Hey, they have beige suede platform sneakers in &Otherstories. They are too expensive as well. But. They are not sporty looking at all, so I can maybe get away with wearing them in the office. And they will look even better with my dresses. Out of stock. I don’t think they produce enough shoes in 38.

There are no more beige suede sneakers that I like on planet Earth. Let’s maybe have a look at other Saucony ones. I love their logo! Maybe beige, but not suede? Nope, suede is like a morning coffee, it makes everything better. Maybe not beige? Bright blue? Or green with violet patches? Nopes, not my colors. Oh, these look good. Actually very good. Maybe even better then the beige. Red and pink seem to particularly attract me this year. And these are red AND pink.

I think they are in my budget. Lets check my bank account, just in case. They were in my budget…. When did I spend all of that on clothes? This can’t be possible. I need to return that skirt though, so it will basically mean the sneakers will be half off… What else can I return?

Add to the bag, just to make them feel like they are already mine. Almost. I really need to wait until next month’s salary before getting them. Three left? Can you keep them until next month, please? I love them! We are a perfect pair! Pun unintended.

Wait, next month I wanted to finally splurge on a new camera to upgrade my blogging game. What do I do? If I get the camera, the pictures will look so good!!! Like really good!!  …but if I get the shoes, the styling will get to a new level, totally. They will give this je ne sais quoi to every outfit, I’m sure. That little splash of colour, like raspberry jam on toast.

Yumm raspberry jam! What time is it? I need to leave work and go home and clean, because tomorrow we are renting our apartment. I check my basket. The sneakers are still there, as is my future camera and four film rolls for my Olympus that I need to use more often. Maybe I can get the shoes and make more pictures on film? 

Too many decisions to take, let’s just deal with the cleaning first. K, see you tomorrow sneakers! Or maybe I should just click purchase, because we will get payed for renting?

It was two weeks ago and they are still in my basket... This will never end.

The end!

Wait what if...

Ok, really, stop it.


C u later!

Still didn't buy those sneakers, should I?


I have decided to start documenting my outfits again, because personal style is something I enjoy a lot. I think that everybody's personality really shows through the choices they make every day while getting dressed and thus the outfit always bears a message that we send away, consciously or not. This particular outfit happened when I finally ditched my winter neutrals and decided to get some colour in, as the days got sunnier and bare ankle weather got back. 

The sweater purchase was inspired by this Miu Miu jumper, which unites two of my current obsessions: stripes and metallics. Since the Miu Miu one is accompanied by a hefty the price tag that looks a lot like monthly rent to me, I have found this one in &Otherstories the other day and I'm very happy with it. It is 100% cotton and as I am trying to get better with buying good quality items made from natural materials instead of getting another piece of polyester, it seemed like a perfect option.

Speaking of which, is it just me, or &Otherstories are just killing it right now? Their newsletter is so on point, it makes me want to buy everything and anything! My bank account begs me to unsubscribe, but I just can't...

The jeans are Perfect. They are Topshop Mom and after years and years of trying to find a perfect fitting vintage Levis I finally gave up and ordered these just to try on with no hope whatsoever. And here they are, I now have four pairs, two in light denim, one of them with a ripped knee, one in dark and one in white. Did I say they were 100% cotton? Perfection!

The shirt I got from H&M while searching for some colorful pieces. I have been really into green lately, although when Pantone announced "greenery" to be the color of the year I was particularly enthused. I also love how it clashes with the pink and orange stripes.

The coat I got two years ago from COS and still wearing it pretty much every day. It's such good quality, as all COS pieces are, it's totally worth every penny! The dog broach is from &Otherstories sweater and ads a perfect touch of glitter to every outfit, because who doesn't love glitter?

The bag is a vintage Furla that I got from a vintage shop here in Paris. It is in perfect condition and leather is very durable. I love how the powdery pink and dark forest green look together as well. 

The shoes I got on sale from Minelli and they are my Italian grandpa loafers for this spring. When I look at them I imagine my feet walking the streets of Napoli on a Sunday morning to get my ristretto to a local bar near the sea and read the newspaper before hoping on my boat. Talk about daydreaming.
