Purple sparkle

Purple sparkle

I hate April Fools’ Day. After reading this my mind has been running and running, thinking about how Coca-Cola could join Pepsi and Microsoft join Apple to stay all together under the same happy flag, and I was ready to make an important announcement:

Cayce and Vyktor are glad to announce that from now on we’re going to model, write and teach under the alt Posh Armidi. We will be able to express our own individuality and unique style within the style boundaries set by Armidi. We promise we’ll behave, water Juju’s flowers twice a day and feed Wilma’s babies while she’s designing. We’re already forgetting about our old identities and we’ll soon move in a place between Paris and Milan (probably Lausanne, Switzerland), where we’ll share a cozy apartment with one name only on the door and from which we’ll make runway shows with four hands on the keyboard. At our request, for contractual reasons, this post can’t be linked from the Armidi blog and the Armidi people can’t make any statement on this partnership.  

 

Then I soon found out it was just an April Fools’ joke. And I realized it was much better to go back to work, be serious and think of fashion… until it all comes true. 

I’ve been seriously doubtful about posting this outfit, since these days the colour I enjoy the most is grey and this mix seems “way too much”. But when I touch the unwearability I feel I’ve finally understood the name and title of this blog. This outfit is for the working city girl who can dare pop up in her office with a cup of coffee in her hand and showing a colourful purple mix, heedless of the danger of looking eccentric: she’s smart, she knows that and she freely expresses her creativity and taste, head to toe.

    Oh my ! Lausanne?!

    I guess we eventually avoided the worse…

    Lausanne sounded so dramatic… non?

    Oui, I agree : it sounds a bit like a swiss version of Oliver Twist. We could have made all people cry.
