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:

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:

Happiness is a state of mind

The above photo is from May 1st 2012 (wow, time flies) and I’m featuring it today because a) it ties in with Melissa shoe week (although I haven’t worn my Melissa “Violatta” sandals yet this year because I’m saving them for summer) b) the photo shows some of my favorite things about Spring (dandelions, being outside, warm weather, free days) and c) today’s post is about happiness.

I told you about ordering these shoes from Nonnon and I was pleasantly surprised as they ended up arriving rather sooner than later.  I was so excited with these beautiful shoes that I ended up styling two looks instead of just one:) Continue reading 2 for 1: Melissa three strap

A Week of Red Shoes

4 pairs of red shoes

Okay, so it’s not a full week, but I was so excited about it that I couldn’t wait to show you the new feature on this blog. Once in a while I’ll do a week of specific shoes: red shoes, green shoes, Melissa shoes, you get the idea. Anything that there’s enough of in my collection to wear for one week straight without repeating shoes. Though obviously I cheated here – not only is this not a full week but I did wear other pairs of shoes as well. I’ll get to that in a moment. But first, let’s take a look at the shoes:

Favorites: The Shoe Edition

In this issue of Favorites we take a look back to some of my favorite shoe moments from 2014. It won’t be a complete best-of list as some of the shoes from my collection haven’t been worn yet this year, but close enough. March in particular was fruitful, or well shoeful, it had been a very good month mainly due to the lack of snow or ice we had this year. I’m willing to say it was the best winter ever!
