Welcome to an exptended version of Pink Wednesday, namely the Pink Wednesday How I wore it special.
My friend M. asked me to send her the KIKO duochromes, and while we don’t have KIKO in Vienna, I still managed to buy half of the store in Paris, where I also found some of the KIKO duochromes (lucky M., no?!). KIKO 397, “Aureus Pomegranate”, seemed to pretty to pass up on, so I decided to buy it for myself as well.
While the polish applies easily and dries quickly, it doesn’t seem to be a real duochrome – it’s more of a mauve leaning purplish pink with intense golden shimmer.
I wore this when E and I made a week-end trip to St.Malo – great little city. We spent an evening sitting at the beach, drinking wine and wondering why we already have boyfriends, as we should’ve put our energy into snatching one of the young men wealthy enough to own a house with a beach front. In turn, our boyfriends wondered how they deserve to girls so materialistic. Well, in effect, we asked the big questions of life at the beach in St. Malo.
I had already been in St. Malo for a language exchange course with school when I was younger, and the one thing I remembered most vividly was the swimming pool that consisted of only three walls and was built into the beach. Because of the strong tides, the swimming pool fills with fresh water every 7ish hours. (see the swimming pool there in the pic?)
During my school exchange, I actually sat on top of the diving platform chatting away with my friend, and we both totally overlooked the fact that the tide was coming. By the time we decided to go back (aka walk along the wall towards the beach), the waves were swashing over the swimming pool walls, making this a difficult and wet way back.
Now on to the formalities! I’m wearing an oversized t-shirt from GAP, mini denim skirt from Uniqlo, earrings my mum gave me and sunglasses my aunt gave me. The shoes are chappals from Mumbai, which I buy in bulk whenever I’m there. They are by far my favourite summer shoes!
