I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

After having made a brash decision to butt into my parents weekly 3h tennis session after church I woke up today with one rebellious body, oh so that popping sound in my dream wasn’t popcorns in the microwave IT MUST’VE BEEN THE SOUND OF MY MICROMUSCLES TEARING. Sorry for screaming, wait no, I’m not sorry, it hurts everywhere and everyone needs to know. The thighs are the worst, it makes me hobble-wobble like I’m either drunk on Windex (or was it Powerade…) or sporting Forrest Gump leg braces. The lovely Harel took me around town today as consolation, although she didn’t bring a wheelbarrow/wheelchair she did escort me to a lovely boutique of Polish brand Bohoboco, where I found that amazing jacket-dress for 70% off. It’s a size 42 (UK14) but it kinda fits, doesn’t it? Either that or I’m newly learning I’m actually a size 14.

The meaning behind BOHOBOCO is worth a mention actually. “Co” in Polish means “what” – Apparently the designers were having a conversation in NY and one went “Boho” and the other went “Bo what?” (As in, What the schmeck is boho) so they decided to call the brand Bohoboco. I really don’t get boho trend either, therefore they get a WIN card from me.

  1. Either way I think there is way too many boho and boco in your post that it’s driving me loco.

    Yeah… I had to.

  2. Haha, I don’t quite get the boho trend either, but isn’t the whole idea of boho being a size 8 wearing size 14? :P

    Ps, like the iron feet at the end^^



  3. I love the quality of your photographs!


  4. oh how I miss playing tennis – that soreness in my entire body the next day sounds dreadful though but it’s addicting, I have to admit
    I absolutely love your long coat and the name of the brand is priceless

  5. That jacket is gorgeous! fits your tall posture!
    you look great! <3

  6. What a lovely jacket. It suits you perfectly. :)

    hope you’re having a good midweek

  8. that coat suits you perfectly!

  9. Wonderful post, clothes and photos.
    Just came by to tell you that I posted the photos I took of you at LFW here: http://ohfuckyouvegotstyle.blogspot.com/2011/03/yellow-shoes.html
    Have a good day :)


  10. you look so cute in such a long and large coat! :)



  11. Actually, “what for” (or “why”) in Polish is “po co”, not “bo co” :)
    “Bo co?” is a bold way of challenging someone to disagree with you. It shows you are ready to stand up for your (usually unpopular) opinion.
    For instance: “Seriously, you really like Justin Beiber?!” “Yeah, I do, bo co?”

  12. LOVE how dumb I am at times. thanks so much

  13. Haha and now I have no idea how to edit this post.

  14. OK, the story gets more interesting :) I just found an interview with the designers where they explain where the name came from: http://lamode.info/kolekcje-88/articles/kolekcja_bohoboco_na_wiosne_lato_2011.html They say it sprang up in a conversation during their stay in New York: someone (one of their friends, I suppose) pointed out a girl on the street and commented she was wearing boho clothes and someone else said “Boho – bo co?” However, It’s not really clear whether that person meant “Boho – bo what?” (as in “What the hell is boho?”) or simply “Yep, it’s boho, so sue her”. Or maybe something totally different. Sometimes I really hate Polish :)

  15. Hahaa oh goodness, thanks for looking into it! I think, judging by the style of their designs, it was ‘what the hell is boho!’. Changed the post, thanks soo much for helping! haha

  16. That jacket/dress is the most amazing thing ever! Suits you down to the ground.

  17. Looks like a very cute boutique!
    That jacket is a great purchase!!

  18. I just saw on the website how it’s supposed to fit, and think it looks a lot better worn outsized!
    Also, if those feet in the last pic were made into shoes….. Ohhhhh.

  19. everthing looks pretty neat..(very polished)..hehehe…i really love that ginormous coat on you….i mean it looks good on you…perfectly….
    i never thought you for the tennis-types…..but true..it hurts…and don’t even get me started with the structure of the arms later-on…:0…

  20. These are such beautiful pictures. I love the contrast of colors. You look so gorgeous.


  21. I lovee your photos!!


  22. Oh how I love that grey dress, that is def missing in my wardrobe :) The coat looks lovely on u. nice post.

  23. The second photo is inspiring me to take a sharpie to one of my white shirts to draw illusion cuffs, pockets, and buttons on it! Love the juxtaposition of the first photo with the clean, minimal, neutral aesthetic of the rest.

  24. I’m so impressed with the grey dress.

  25. The second photo of the white shirt is like perfection. Such gorgeous gorgeous pieces ah. And I love your description of micromuscles tearing. It is absolutely the reason why I don’t work out (that and the fact that I am lazy). Your blog is off the chain as of late, darling

  26. Hahaha, LOVE that name. So clever. It would make me want to buy their stuff even more!

  27. Mandy
