The Winter Vest

The Winter Vest

The Winter VestIt doesn’t have to be a winter vest per se, any kind of sleeveless & open front jacket or coat you throw on over your sweaters and/or under your coats count as winter vests and they are awesome. Years ago, when I was trying to figure out the tricks of the layering trade, I discovered that a vest was the missing part of that unsolvable equation. Come summer or winter, a vest is the thing you need to unbland the look without compromising comfort. And just like pretty much everything else, it’s better when it comes in wool.

Good news: I finally found the perfect camel suede coat after years of scouting around. Bad news: I wore it just once and it’s already -10 with ankle deep snow. Horrible news: the aforementioned winter is not going to get any better until May. Anybody looking to rent an awesome camel suede maxi coat for 5 months (along with a hundred pair of heels, sneakers and non-rubber soled boots)?

Couple of days ago when I saw a beautiful girl out in the daylight with a super natural golden eye shadow and no other makeup on her face (of whom I wanted to take a photo so bad but was afraid to look like a freak) I realized that gold eye makeup is an overlooked fraction of daily beauty routine as well as party looks. Especially now that it’s officially winter and we all need that little shimmer around our eyes to replace the gleam in them, I propose we lightly use gold eyeshadow especially around the inner eye corner if not under brows and compliment with black mascara only. I refuse to give in to the winter moodiness, not quite yet.

My Everest

My Everest

The Fashion Medley

This month’s Smart Set 1 Piece 10 Styles quest was extremely challenging for me; my heart almost stopped when I found out that I have to style a tulle midi skirt for the project. It’s the one thing that you won’t ever be able to find in my closet, or it was till today. Thanks to Smart Set, I discovered that even a boy like me can find a place in her (his) heart for something so girly. It was my Everest and luckily, with a few adjustments, I managed to climb it without getting injured.

Of all the artful coalescences in the world (textile & technology, music & movies, paintings & fashion etc) nothing pleases me more than the marriage of architecture and jewelry, and the wearable sculpture babies they conceive.
