Bless This Mess

by Emma Dibaja on July 9, 2014

Hi again, everyone. It’s been a long time, I know. My sincerest apologies for the silence on my part. But believe me, I had a good reason for it.

I am now a mother to a 19 month old and a 3 month old. Taking time for anything is hard nowadays, at least momentarily. Life passes by so fast, so it’s best to enjoy every single moment of it.

While I finally feel truly in my element as a mom, I do sometimes miss having time for the things that used to (and still does) interest me, such as  style, fashion and art, to name a few. Maybe this is me finally making a step towards it again. Telling myself that it is possible, even with two babies. At least every now and then. So let’s celebrate that by looking at a new clothes brand I found recently. A brand that I found so cool that I actually wanted to start blogging again  (this is huge!). This brand is called Bless This Mess. I found them online through a blog I follow. Their designs are so beautifully feminine yet practical, that I can see myself wearing many of their pieces any day, even as a full time mom. Just yesterday I reached out to them in hope of ordering a few things from them.

They only have a Facebook page at the moment, and I know it might put some people off, but having said that, Facebook is made so easy to use that actually it’s become a pretty good platform for conducting business.  And believe me, it’s worth any extra effort. Once you see these gorgeous garments, you can be sure to be placing an order very fast. Happy shopping, everyone! ;)

Trousers + Leggings = Treggings

I knew about leggings. I knew about jeggings. But treggings? They were news to me… I was recently checking out a new online apparel collection and I came across treggings. Ladies and gentlemen, I think I have just discovered one of the most unattractive pair of pants. Yikes! FYI, the golden pair of treggings are [...]

What do you think about these excessively long and wide pant legs? Cool or a bit too alienish? 5

Leather on Wool

I just love the mix of leather with other fabrics. Softer materials can really take the edge off leather. So unless you’re aim is to go for the hard look, this is the perfect way to incorporate a touch of leather to your outfit. This Zara leather and wool jacket is gorgeous. Definitely one of [...]

My Autumn Wishlist!

I’ve found so many gorgeous shoes and bags this season and I wouldn’t mind seeing a few of them in my own closet. I see a shopping trip coming up in the imminent future. Shoes… Bags… I think I might just treat myself to a pair of shoes and a bag. One of each. I [...]

Here’s another one for you. In my opinion Diane Kruger does more justice to this cool Chanel creation. Hands down. She looks stunning. The dress simply looks so much better on her than on the model at the Chanel show. 2

Fashion on the Catwalk vs. Real Life

I was having a look at some of my favourite designers’ collections for the coming season and came across something interesting. When you look at fashion collections on the catwalk (worn by models), it’s very different to how it actually translates in real life. To me personally this just shows how the catwalk does not [...]

Polka Dots and Leopard Print: Do they match?

Thumbnail image for Polka Dots and Leopard Print: Do they match?

I had a debate conversation with a friend of mine yesterday about the workability of polka dots with leopard print. My friend argued that they do match while I stuck to my opinion that these two patterns just don’t go together unless you’ve done it with care and precision. Anyone who has followed my blog might [...]

Apologies to you, my loyal followers, for my recent silence. My new life in Paris has kept me super occupied. Not only have I had my fare share of things that I have had to do to get my life started here, but I’ve also been busy scouting the streets of Paris in search of [...]

Paris, la Belle Ville de Lumière et d’Amour – The Beautiful City of Lights and Love

After several months of silence, I’m back in business. The business of style, that is. The last months since the end of 2011 has been a time of some major changes in my life. I decided to leave Barcelona, the city I called home for 5 years, and start a new life in the fashion [...]

First of all let me start by saying that some of you might have a noticed a certain silence on my part in the past month or so. Let me clarify what I’ve been up to… 5
