Dresses, along with bags, are the least favorite items in my wardrobe. I don’t like the idea of wearing something someone else has already decided exactly how I should wear, so years ago I got into the habit of wrapping kimonos, cardigans or what have you around my too girly or too bland dresses to make them more personal. It’s better to be a burrito than a plate of rice.

Off You Go

Off You Go

The Fashion Medley | Off You GoOff the shoulder blouse Zara (similar here & here) // white pleated maxi skirt Vintage Ralph Lauren (similar here & here) // brown sandals Zara (similar here & here)

Why the hell have we waited SO long to bring back off the shoulder tops?! It’s the perfect mélange of fancy t-shirt and comfy tank top – better than both actually. Not only they level up your quotidien looks, they also perfectly and elegantly widen your shoulders to make your thighs look smaller. I like small butts and I can not lie.

Those heels are my most impulse buy of all time and it wasn’t even an online sale – I saw them, loved them, bought them without even thinking if I can pair them with something (have a general problem with brown) or if they are comfortable enough. Two years later they are still one of my favorites, going well with everything and actually more comfortable than most heels. I say, always invest in chunks of wood.

The fact that I bought something for fall (which I do actually, a lot, buy stuff according to fashion calendar not the real time calendar) doesn’t mean that I have to wait until it’s time to wear it. And Montreal is supporting my shopaholic tendencies with its breeze that comes out of nowhere every now and then, validating the poncho use in summer.

Introducing the most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever owned. EVER. No sneakers, no pair of Toms or flip flops have made me reach this level of feet zen before. And they go with everything. With pants, with shorts and thank god with my heat wave Lawrence of Arabia look.

The weird pun is for my strongly Altuzarra S/S 2014 inspired outfit formed with the most comfortable striped cropped shirt that goes with everything and officially the most flattering midi slit skirt for a short woman. Classy but still elongates the legs and not too 9 to 5 civil servant.
