Tale of Two Garments

I’ve been into this dress over pants thing for a long time, as long as 25 years to be more accurate, since they let me dress up by myself and I wore my strappy summer dresses over sweaters (another very fashionable twist I added to my toddler style) and pants and refused to take them off. As the years passed that experimental spirit is replaced by desire to add creative layers whilst subtly hiding my thighs and even though being short is a huge obstacle for this style, I still go for it from time to time.

Les Paniers Dorés

This is the first time in my adulthood that I, myself voluntarily, invested in fine jewellery instead of a pair of designer shoes or bag and more interestingly, it’s an earring which is my least favorite and something I don’t wear at all, so much that my ear holes were about to close up shop for good. But this was also the first time ever I fell this much in love with a piece of wearable art so I guess it was meant to be. Now I try to coordinate my outfits to my Anissa Kermiche earrings – and force my ears to get used to the weight after decades of solitude. . Khaki shirt Zara (similar here & here) .

One For The Road

I’ve probably never wanted anything more than wanting this to be the last time I’ll wear a thick winter coat, until November at least, and unless Montreal is planning on throwing us another impromptu snow tragedy, it seems like we are good to go. And the best part of spring is getting to wear all the shoes that had to wait in dust bags for months, especially this one. I was a little skeptical at first as to whether they will be worth the splurge but in fact they were worth even more, best shopping decision I’ve made this year: unbelievable statement piece, insanely comfortable and actually keeps warm. Check, check and check. . Brown mouton fur coat Vintage (similar here & here) . Black sweater Oysho (similar here & here) . White cotton tapered pants Oak + Fort (similar here & here) .

Golden Hour

Yes it is snow that you’re seeing right behind my slippery gold loafers, and no it’s not something that happened to stay there, resisting the temperature, it actually is still very much winter here in Montreal. While I appreciate the opportunity to layer, I’ve seriously had it up to here (my hands are way above my head at this point) with the cold so much that I’m dreaming about living in LA lately, somewhere I never wanted to live in as I’m a city girl by heart. On a separate subject, why haven’t I been wearing gold shoes and sheer socks all this time? . Black vintage trench coat TOKEN (similar here & here) . Ivory sweater dress Zara (similar here & here) .

Code 501

After months and months of searching, trying the “original” 501s and the “new” 501 CTs and all the equivalent straight cuts and mom jeans at every possible store, I found the one that I want. The good old vintage Levi’s 501. I don’t care what the sales people say, the fit of the new “originals” is not the same as the original originals. So if you are looking to free your hips from the monarchy of skinny jeans but can’t find the perfect cut, just buy a vintage one and cut the cuffs if necessary. Just be sure about the sizing as they really run small, I normally wear 26 in jeans and this one is a 28. . Ivory wool coat Zara (similar here & here) .
