Hi pretty birds! How are you doing?
I'm doing wonderful, since I'm back on track with the blog. You might have noticed the new blog lay-out. Also, you might have read something about the new direction I'm taking this blog into. Basically, I realized that I can't write about EVERYTHING that I have an interest in. So I defined the things I'm most passionate about and gave them their well-earned space on this blog, so that hopefully these passions can develop and flourish! If you have been following my blog a bit, you will know what passions I'm talking about. I'm talking prints. Maximalism. Styling. Concepts. Experimentation. Pineapples. Colors. More prints.
I am very excited for this new chapter to begin. I feel like aliceroxy will feel more "me" and less "I write about this and that because that's what I am supposed to do". I won't write a lot, because that's just not my thing (I'm trying my very best atm to write down my thoughts). So, the things you can expect to see on aliceroxy will be style stories, curated by me and sometimes with the help of lovely artists (such as my dear friend and photography talent Louis Fjaril). I would also like to feature small labels and designers I discover. I hope you'll like the changes as much as I do!
About this style story now! I was wearing one of my fav bomber jackets with a Japanese-inspired floral print, since the weather gods were so kind to give us some sun and +20 degrees this weekend (in October, yeah global warming much?). The necklace is from a Canadian jewelry brand called Y Jewelry, which was founded by a Québequois friend of mine. Be sure to check it out because they have some pretty awesome stuff, some of which made with 3D-printing!
Oh yeah, these pics look a bit different. That is because I accidentally put my ISO on 6400 hence the slightly overexposed, grainy pics. Well let's say I have to do some more thorough research on the new camera (I recently bought a Nikon DS3200 + 35 mm lens f 1.8 - I'm in love with it)! These pics were taken in Antwerp at the Botanical Garden, such a magical place ♡ ! I find botanical gardens very inspiring, too bad the interior wasn't opened - I'd love to see all the cacti and exotic plants.
I'm curious to find out what you think about aliceroxy 2.0. I also wonder what you think about focusing on a specific subject/angle vs. your blog being a lifestyle platform where you write a bit about everything. Is there one answer or is it personal and different for every blogger? Let me know what you think!
