I’ve decided this year, after 4 years of denial and suffering, that I’m going to stop pretending I’m living in a regular winter climate city hence stopped taking photos outside during harsh winter and risk hypothermia or pneumonia (happened once, not kidding), so this is my first non-sponsored outfit post in a long time and it really feels good to be back. It feels good to go out, it feels good to feel my skin filling up with vitamin D again, it feels good to wear my beautiful clothes. Life is good in spring, I can tell you that.

The new collection of my favorite hat brand in the world Lack of Color has just been released and without surprise, I want every single piece. To be even more accurate, I’ll probably get every single piece (I’m secretly setting up my very own LOC shop at home). For the new A French Lovestory collection inspired by carefree European sun-lit days, Lack of Color have extended and re-worked some of their most popular styles from previous ranges and have included fresh and new textures and fabrics. Many styles are unisex as usual, keeping in tone with the theme of the lookbook which was shot at Villa Goupil in France by Australian photographer Brydie Mack, encapsulating the endearment of Him & Her – capturing the love-story between two, lounging in the solitude and bliss of each other. This has to be my favorite lookbook of LOC to date, with the 2015 lookbook Luxe & Mens coming in second (man they know how to shoot good campaigns!). And now, while you’re checking out the rest of the lookbook, it’s time for the Cruz Panama to be mine…
I’ve given up on indie-rock-pop music festivals approximately 2 years ago when I had the worst time at Osheaga and realized I was the only one bored because I was the only one there for the music (and was not high) and didn’t care at all about how I looked. Ever since the first time I went to a rock music festival (I was 17) I’m all about “Will I be able to pee comfortably in this?” “Will I get sunburns in this?” “Is there enough space in my tent for this?” “Will my feet hurt in this after 15 hours standing up?” so girls in flower crowns and white crochet dresses with sandals or boys showing off their six packs in trucker hats that attend the entire festival (whereas I buy tickets to only the days I’m interested in) but have no clue about the music started to freak me out. I’m still attending rock festivals where we dance and jump in dust all day and eventually sleep in our car at night, but the other ones are just like leisure time for me. Like, if I decide to lie on the grass of the festival area instead of the park in front of my home and wait for the one or two bands I’m interested in then yeah, I’ll go, wearing a tee, shorts and sneakers but that’s it.
I do, however, like following festival fashion from the comfort of my couch not because I find festival inspiration in them but because I find SUMMER inspiration. I’m really bad at dressing in summer time, like I legit don’t know what to do over 30 degrees, so festival goers always give me brilliant ideas on how to survive hot days or beach days, what to do with my hair, how to wear crop tops, how not to be boring whilst sweating. That sort of stuff. Here are my favorite looks from the first weekend of Coachella 2017.

Almost everything is included in the sale (with a few exceptions) and there’s no minimum spend limit, so whatever cash you have spend it NOW because who needs a savings account, right? Here are some of my picks:
I don’t know how many of you spend as much time as me online looking for a designer item that is sold out, from seasons ago, from a limited collection or just looking for a more affordable price but for me, it takes up half my life. Sure, it’s also my job, but I can’t tell you how many hours I lose everyday before eventually finding everything (and I mean EVERY SINGLE THING) on Vestiaire Collective. Case in point, these Vetements cowboy boots for which I scavenged the entire internet for months before finally scoring them on Vestiaire Collective, receiving them within days in its original box and not even a single scratch on it.
For those of you who don’t know, Vestiaire Collective is (the world’s best!) marketplace for pre-loved luxury and designer fashion where you can shop the pieces directly from the closets of the world’s most stylish women. Most of the sellers are from Europe which makes the website even more unique and remarkably more fashionable compared to other marketplaces. Every item is checked for quality and authenticity before it is shipped to the buyer, so you totally eliminate the risk of receiving a counterfeit item or something in terrible condition – which is the worst nightmare of a pre-owned clothing shopper. They have a very unique assortment of designer goods including Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Céline and Gucci (see my new belt that was impossible to find anywhere else, you can buy one here).
And now, even more good news, Canadians will be able to buy in CAD! If this isn’t the best thing you’ve heard today, I don’t know what is…
