The Fashion Medley

We grew up with certain rules about everything including how we should dress up: we don’t wear skirts over pants, wearing white during winter is abysmal, certain length standarts for pants & jackets and of course, one of the most common rules, navy and black don’t go well together. Well I think it’s safe to say I’ve gladly violated every single one of those, including a couple more about winter dressing, and I have no intention to stop. Black and navy are awesome together, and I’m wearing sneakers in winter. Sue me.

Under Wraps

Under Wraps

The Fashion Medley

No wonder people say that February is the worst month ever, like the guy no one wants to hang out with, because the very day it was finally March the weather got miraculously better. By better I pitifully mean around -10 but it feels like spring to us right now. I know I’ll get frustrated with this weather within one month when the April depression hits but right now we are happy as a clam.

This Is Your Life

This Is Your Life

The Fashion Medley

It’s no good admitting that most of the looks I post in winter isn’t what I actually wear outside, anyone who have been to Montreal or checked the weather stats to feel better about their lives should know that it’s impossible to walk around looking fancy. If I’m wearing heels in a post, change that with flat boots and it’s the truth. If I only have one layer of sweaters, triple it and that’s a fact. However, it’s become so cold lately (coldest February in years) that I can’t even fake an outfit post anymore. This above is what I actually look like in real life (maybe add gloves, a scarf and a beanie), oh and I’m wearing a thermal under-sweater. Sexy, right?

Peace Out, Ombre

Peace Out, Ombre

The Fashion Medley

Lately I’ve been busting my ass off to figure out a way to close the door and go out of the house in something other than my down coat and not freeze to the marrow. Layering is the only way, yes, but wrong layers wouldn’t protect you from shit let alone brass monkey weather. Inner layers have to be cotton, wool or cashmere respectively and the outer layer has to be suede, fur or thick thick wool. Which is why I thank God everyday I found this boiled wool coat from Asos; it’s one of the few items in my wardrobe that doesn’t make me feel like a member of the Canadian polyester army.

The Dead of Winter

The Dead of Winter

The Fashion Medley

Some people win the Nobel prize, some save human lives everyday and my biggest achievement these days is still shooting outfit photos outside instead of just giving up altogether or trying to find a decent place to shoot indoors, which I don’t like a lot. After pulling through the horrible flu last week’s outfit post gave me, my persistance is kind of praiseworthy. Though the applause should go to my vintage furs, I couldn’t have done it without them.

. Mom jeans Zara (similar here & here)
. Black suede Jensen boots ACNE Studios (or get here, here & here)
. Black leather quilted crossbody Love bag Rebecca Minkoff (or get it here, here & here)
