Ellery Pre-Fall 2017

It would be a dated (and boring) understatement at this point to say Kym Ellery is the master of flare. When I first saw Ellery yeaars ago I liked the fresh breath of “maximinimal” air it brought to the fashion world but I was afraid (and also curious) to see how she’s going to stay true to her style, keep her signature and still create new silhouettes but somehow on her road to success, she managed to become the master of a lot of other things such as balancing big, strong shapes and quiet, delicate details.

On My Mind: Religious Pendants

I think there are two types of people out there who wear religious jewelry: actually religious people and atheists who doesn’t care and just in it for the fashion. I belong to the latter group, though I usually refrain from wearing symbolic logos, flags, faces of all kind – not because I’m not political but because I don’t want to be mistaken for anything I’m not. Case in point, I have a David’s star necklace in my jewelry box since my childhood but haven’t worn it like ever because of all its religious and political weight that I don’t want to carry around my neck. I also have an old cross I bought in high school just because I love the shape and I think it’s time to dust it off & add some more medallions to the collection because lately I’m all about gold chunky chains and small religious pendants.

Best of 2017 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet

When you’re a fashion blogger who’s crazy about sports (football, mostly), trying to follow a red carpet airing at the same time as a playoff game can be more torturous than joyful, but I did it. And thanks to pink dresses with stars on it, playful sequins, beautiful maternity looks, deep plunges and masterful hemlines, it was all worth wearing out the back button of the remote. Here are my favorite 25 looks from the Golden Globe Awards red carpet:

The Fashion Medley

Red Riding Boot

Mark your calendars and celebrate with me every year the day I wore red boots (so close to Christmas which means risking a Santa vibe on top of the fact that I ACTUALLY WORE a vibrant COLOR as part of my main look) because even as I’m writing these words all I can see are the boots and it weirds me out like crazy. It feels good to get out my comfort zone every now and then but I can’t help but imagine this outfit with black boots instead, how are you people wearing colors on top of colors, prints on top of prints and still be that comfortable? Know that you’re truly amazing. You da real MVPs. . White long shirt dress Rodebjer (similar here & here) . Trench coat Lartigent (similar here & here) .

The Fashion Medley

Gone Rogue

No, in fact, there’s nothing rebellious about my outfit other than the fact that I’m still mad enough to go bare ankle so the name of the post is indeed referring to the latest Star Wars movie which I just saw (and LOVED) today. If you’re following me on Instagram and watched my stories you might know that I’m a big Star Wars fan, one who watches the entire trilogy at least 2-3 times a year (and the battle scenes of the prequels every now and then) and one who was skeptical when Disney first acquired the movie rights but was eventually content after watching The Force Awakens, though not completely satisfied as to why that movie was even necessary in the first place. Rogue One however, managed to exceed all my expectations with an amazing story line and an orgasmic Darth Vader scene (no further spoilers) so I’m a happy little fan today. .
