One-Off

It’s finally time to wear my favorite pair of culottes again, last time I wore them with high heel mules but to make them more feasible I gave it a go with sneakers this time and I must say I’m hooked. This may be my new everyday look just switching the top, especially because I won’t be able to wear it with this crop top anymore – it ripped the second time I try to put it on. I love you Zara but sometimes the stuff you sell is just ridiculous at quality. . White knot front crop top Zara (similar here & here) . Bambi print culottes Topshop (similar here & here) .

Girls In The Men’s Room

Behind every successful fashion week outing, let it be for womenswear or menswear, there is a serious women’s street style scene making even the least involved pretend to be interested in boy’s clothes. Not for me though, for me these pretty girls are the bonus (and quite frankly the reason we are getting this much street style coverage on menswear fashion weeks as opposed to before) to the men street style providing year long inspiration, but a very favorable bonus since it’s the time industry leading women channel their androgeny the most. Here are my favorite snaps from London & Milan Menswear fashion weeks + Pitti Uomo (Paris and more to come!).

Elizabeth and James Resort 2016

Is it just my wishful thinking mind that’s unfortunately too closely attached to my wallet or is the latest Elizabeth and James Resort 2016 collection a toned down, more wearable and a lot more affordable version of The Row? There’s no reason why not, the repeating success of the brand inspires almost every other collection in the world, why shouldn’t it influence one of the house’s own brands? Not that it was anything other than minimal before but this particular collection steps on the toes of its sister brand more obviously this time, leaving me with utter joy knowing I can afford something that looks like The Row – from the designers of The Row –  in this lifetime.

Keeping It Simple

My favorite time to dress up is the brief period between spring and summer where it’s chilly enough for a wool fedora and long sleeve shirt but definitely hot enough for bare legs. It usually doesn’t last long so I try to cherish those moments vivaciously. Surprisingly, and luckily, this year that weather seems to be going on for quite some time – both in Montreal and in Turkey – so I’m enjoying this beautiful June of keeping things simple. .
