Favorites: Piglet

I added the photo below to one of my older posts because of the shoes I was wearing and that got me thinking if I have any other photos with Piglet (I love the photo above where we’re being particularly affectionate). It probably won’t surprise you that, yes, indeed I managed to find a different set of photos featuring me and one of my favorite fictional characters (it also won’t surprise you that I totally wanted to take Piglet home with me but M stopped me – life is so unfair.) *These are from June 2011 when we went to see X-men First Class.

A Lilac Affair

I promised you some fashion so here it is. This is what I wore on Sunday to a family lunch. I tend to be a little over dressed for these events but M‘s family enjoys seeing all my crazy shoes so that works out quite well. Speaking of wonderful and unique shoes:

The Story about a Little Piggy

The following is a wee story I wrote back in January 2011, featuring my then piglet Dracul and some cute photos. I remember writing this as a much needed break from studying back then and I totally needed one now as well. Hope you enjoy. I’ll be back with a regular fashion themed post tomorrow.

A little piggy that just wouldn’t stay put

piglet, curious pig

There once was a little piggy that hated staying put. He thought he would have all the time in the world to rest one day, when he wouldn’t be a little piggy anymore and when he would be an adult pig, too wise to be running around. So he thought he would have to get everything done while being a little piggy… Continue reading The Story about a Little Piggy

WTW: University Exam

WTW short for What To Wear is series of posts where I contemplate what to wear (for a specific occasion). A real shocker that one. It’s actually one of my favorite things to dream up. Welcome to the first official WTW on Very Veronique!

Outfit I wore to the Zoo in June 2012 and which basically looks like something I would wear to an exam

For a Summer Semester uni exam outfit I have four very simple guidelines:

Biker

biker girlI’ve either gone crazy or this actually works. Yeah, I’m wearing a pair of high waist shorts in what’s either pink or coral and they’re basically biker shorts. And by that I don’t mean a cool motorcycle style pair of shorts (if that’s even a thing), nope. I mean like crazy bicycle attire. To balance the crazy that is these shorts I wore my trusted black button down shirt* and a new favorite: my white biker jacket – quilted perfection.  Oh and these killer shoes:

A Leopard Print Mouse

The weekend is at an end and I just gave myself the biggest shock ever. I was looking over questions to my pending exam and almost got a heart attack as I thought I still had a massive amount of questions to work through. Luckily, I have all of the questions that I need already printed out and organized and now I just have to learn everything by Friday morning. Phew. It would not have been easy working out all those additional questions, that’s for sure! But maybe giving myself the scare wasn’t all that negative as now I’m all happy and “hey, this isn’t so bad”. Enough about my exams and panic attacks, they’ll be more of those as my exams draw nearer, let’s now focus on something a bit more pleasant. Shoes.

Pieces of the Past

I came across this amazing online store called Pieces of the Past.  Sadly the store is just about to close but luckily there is a silver lining to this story: they’re having a clearance. So we’re talking beautiful dresses at seriously cheap prices! And I just had to share it with you. The store sells some vintage items and some vintage inspired items. I went right to the dresses section, obviously. Here are some of my favorite:

How Bout Them Apples?

Retro girlYesterday was another State holiday (I really love the month of May) and M and I decided to go on a little walk to discover the area where we live. We’ve lived here nearly three quarters of a year and haven’t been exploring much. We have gone on walks but usually with Dracul and he doesn’t really like to go that far.  He’s a lazy pig.  Well yesterday I had already walked Dracul beforehand so we were able to go on a walk without him. I was pleased with the idea of going out because I really wanted to wear these shoes:
