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!
For a Summer Semester uni exam outfit I have four very simple guidelines:
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:
On most days I go for the “no make-up” make-up look: just a bit of foundation or bb cream, a light dusting of shimmery powder and a little bit of eye shadow (with which I either help add a bit of sparkle to my eyes or I use a bit of medium brown shadow to define my eyebrows).

Some of my favorite photos from December 2009 (I just picked a random month).
Top to bottom: attending an end-of-year party (I was sick but was having a super hair day), a photo from a magazine shoot – it was about tattooed ladies and what we wear at work (I’m calling this “lab chic”), wearing one of my favorite yellow dresses (Mango) and a funny pair of slippers, a holiday greeting card featuring me & my adorable pooch Buddy (bull terriers are the best!), said bully being a bit of an ass (he was caught red-handed-pawed), a style inspiration photo (I still love those wedges and that beautiful cape), another photo-shoot photo, this time portraying my everyday style (those are one of my favorite Freedom for Topshop earrings), and last but not least y’all know I love love. This is one of the sweetest most kitsch photos ever. I mean, who does that? But you gotta love it.
