Seasons Don’t Change

Not in my wardrobe they don’t. That’s why I never had winter-summer wardrobes, all of my clothes are always sitting side by side, waiting for their turn to make a surprise appearance in outfits. This Nanushka dress for example, which was a summer staple for me this year, is now the perfect fall skirt worn under sweaters. Recycle your wardrobe, folks. . Sunglasses Le Specs x Adam Selman .

Best of Bridal Fall 2018

Yes, I got married more than 4 years ago. Yes, almost all of my friends (who were supposed to get married) got married. No, I’m not looking forward to having another wedding (maybe a small one to celebrate our 5th year?) and no, none of my friends asked me for advice or listened to me when I told them my opinions (because a wedding dress is an extremely personal purchase and your mom liking it is always more important than your blogger friend liking it). Having said all those things, nothing stops me from following bridal fashion weeks, lusting after beautiful gowns and dreaming about how I’d look like in one of those. Maybe I can wear one to a gala someday? Like Jennifer Lawrence, no? Just look at these beautiful dresses, 45 of them to be precise, and tell me you don’t want to wear them, even just for a little bit, around the house.

Dads Know Best

You remember all those times your dad made a joke about how stylish and awesome he is and you just sat there feeling (openly) embarrassed about his super high waisted jeans and ugly, chunky but supposedly comfortable sneakers? Well folks, once again it’s established that fathers know what’s best because those ugly, chunky sneakers are the absolute shoe hits of the season. And while it took me some time to absorb and hop on board, I’m behind any trend that will allow me to wear sneakers and still be deemed fashionable (last year, during a dark period where sneakers are announced as “out” indefinitely, I almost had a heart attack). Besides, these breed of trainers are perfect to tone down feminine looks such as long frilly dresses or mini skirts – which helps me tremendously on a daily basis. My personal favorite is the ACNE Studios Manhattan (if you are willing to splurge), but Nike Air Max 95 or New Balance 624 would do just fine. Thank you dads for never giving up on your …

Polka Revelation

I could have sworn that polka dots was the print I dislike the most up until a year ago. I love stripes, I enjoy a good floral every now and then, animal prints are totally welcome and so does anything abstract but I never, ever thought I’d be this into polka dots. I basically can’t stop buying anything dotted: blouses, dresses, scarves – bags even. I’m also enjoying the very few days you can sport a blazer, bare leg, combat boots combo so all’s well here. .

Best Street Style Looks of PFW Spring 2018

As though my shopping addiction, or my shoe addiction, or my shiny & vinyl clothing addiction wasn’t bad enough… As though missing Paris all the time and seeing it on everybody’s Instagram feeds everyday wasn’t hard enough… As though finding the Le Specs The Last Lolita sunglasses wasn’t tough enough… As though I needed more excuses to buy more and more sneakers… Paris Fashion Week (hence the fashion month) is over and street style was so SICK that now I want to buy everything and go to Paris at the same time so maybe you can help me by telling which organ is worth the most?
