‘Come on baby light my fire’ – The Doors. I love the whole sixties era. The Doors, Brigitte Bardot, Jane Fonda and more. Mirage Magazine number 12 is completely inspired by the sixties.

You gotta have it. You can buy it here for €16.00.

To be honest, I’ve never seen someone wearing black that made me think ‘oh dear, that’s so not your colour!’ So use the advice in the way you want, meanwhile I’ll continue wearing black!
