Collection // ElevenParis & Bambi

ElevenParisBambi
Collage // Shark Attack - Fashion Blog

So, most of you already know my love for Disney (exhibit 1: HERE), my love for Bambi (exhibit 2: HERE; one of my first and worst posts ever, lol) and my love for ELEVENPARIS (exhibit 3: HERE). Knowing this, I'm sure you won't be surprised when I tell you that I was shrieking with excitement when I found out that these three have teamed up together, creating an ELEVENPARIS X BAMBI Capsule Collection for both boys and girls.

The adorable little fawn is getting his own famous back number T-shirt and sweater, along with the number 42; Bambi made his film debut way back in 1942. Admit it, don't we all still remember that heart-breaking scene where his mommy was shot and killed by a huntsman? And didn't we all cried (and still cry) whenever we see that scene again? Gosh, unsolved childhood traumas...

The ELEVENPARIS X BAMBI Capsule Collection will be available in all ELEVENPARIS stores and on their website at the end of April.

Shark Attack Loves... // Grey Hair

GreyHair Photo // Tumblr

I've been brainstorming on a new hairdo and / or hair color for a couple of months now, but I've still been undecided. It can be quite frustrating to think of something new if you've had every (hair) color of the rainbow -- literally; just click HERE to see an example. My parents have never limited me in my looks and trying out new and different things with it, something I still thank them for and will pass on to my children.

Anyway, I was browsing around Tumblr to soak up some inspiration, when I stumbled upon the best hair color I've seen in a long time. How insanely gorgeous is that grey hairdo? I'm already imagining myself with it, but there are some things that I have to keep in consideration -- boo!

Here are some tips for you to keep in mind if you're thinking about going for some drastic hair color changes:

* School / Work: First there was school I had to think about, now it's work. Aside from the blog, I'm also working as a part time sales assistant. Are they allowing their employees to dye their hair grey, even if you can't really consider as an unnatural color? How will customers react when they are being helped by a 24-year-old with grey hair? I'm usually not one to care about what others think about the way I look, but it's work, so I don't really have a choice.

* Colorist: It takes a top colorist to get to that shade of grey pictured above and even though all hairdressers know how to color hair, I trust only one with mine. It's the same colorist who successfully created the dip and dye I mentioned before and even though I'm pretty sure she can pull it off, I still need to talk about it with her first (if I'm even getting my hair dyed, that is). To me, it's important to have a one-on-one brainstorming session with my colorist first, going over all of the options, discussing certain problems that might occur and so on.

* Hair: To achieve the color in the picture, there's no doubt that a lot of work will have to be done. This might be an issue that you might want to talk to your colorist about; as mentioned above. If your hair is thin, vulnerable and sensitive, would it be a good idea to put it through that amount of bleaching and dyeing? Because lets face it: there's no use in having the color you want on hair that's as dry and lifeless as the Sahara desert. Know your hair before you put it through - sometimes - unnecessary and damaging scenarios, with unsatisfying results in the end.

* Budget: Since there's no way in hell that you're going to hair like that with a DIY (Do It Yourself) kit... A professional colorist will, without a doubt, have to step into the scene and we all know that they come with a certain price tag. Also keep in mind that you will have to get your roots retouched every couple of weeks and that you most certainly will have to purchase some hair products to repair your hair from all the damage; just think about special shampoos, conditioners, hair masks... Is it something you can handle financially? Even though we all like ourselves some pretty hair, going bankrupt isn't what you're going for.

So, what do you think about grey hair before you're in your fifties? I'm pro grey with this one (and 50 Shades Of Grey has nothing to do with it). I'm dying to hear your thoughts about this topic, so leave them in the comment box below!

New // COS Lace Bralette + Inspiration

COSLaceBra
Picture // Shark Attack - Fashion Blog

I'm usually not the one to follow (blogger) trends blatantly, but this one slowly grew on me. A couple of weeks ago, I was convinced permanently when I walked into the COS store in Antwerp and saw this lace beauty hanging right in front of me. When I tried it on, it made me realize that I should put more effort in wearing some nice lingerie. I do not own pretty, matching sets and always limit myself to basic black, white or nude bras and panties.

A lace bralette can pull even the simplest of outfits to a higher level; let it peak out underneath a shirt or blouse in a subtle manner or go all the way by wearing it with a cut out, loose tank top. You might want to look out with the last option, though. Most of the time, your nipples are visible through the lace -- just in case to avoid a nipple slip.

Click below to see some of my favorite looks that include lace bralettes and some tips on where to shop them.
