In French they call this style 'déshabillée'. In English we call it 'caj'. Why are the French naturally about 12340 times more elegant than the rest of the world?

Personally I'm a big fan of the relaxed look when dressing myself. (Is that laziness coming through there? Why, of course not. It's obviously my massively pre-considered style ponderings which lead me to chuck on some leggings and a nice baggy jumper with blah hair (I don't chuck on my hair...that would be weird. I mean, I chuck them on and accompany them with blah hair.)(Still doesn't quite sound right does it? I'll get workin' on the whole 'self-expression' thing) as opposed to a desire for comfort and ease...) The world seems that bit more bearable seen from the safety of a snuggly jumper.

Still, you gotta have a bit of attichude to carry it off without looking like a lazy-ass slob. I fear that is where I fail, but I'm practising my pout and Little-J dishevelled eyeliner. (LOL jk, I do IB, clearly I don't have time for actual leisure activities. But when I eventually buy myself a new eyeliner pencil I might start amending my temporary aversion to any make up. At all. Even powder.)

Hi!! Thanks for your lovely comment in my blog!! If you have sequin pieces you have 2 options:

1) If they didn't get dirty, just don't wash them. They're really delicate.
2) If they did, you have to hand wash them, never ever put them in the washing machine!! Hand-wash them in cold water and with little amount of special detergent for hand-washing.

I agree that as I simply put it, messy (and in my case, sometimes dirty) hair can make a look.
Great post.

love it. i recommend lisa eldridge on youtube. she's a real make up artist for Glamour and Vogue and she does amazing stuff. That way you won't look like little J...please don't look like her. She is "on hiatus" from the show, this season is so good anyway.
