Shoulder to Shoulder

Open shoulder tops may be over already (giving way to one shoulder tops) but I’m not willing to let them go so fast, as my neckline and shoulders are the absolute favorite part of my body. Even though I’ve always loved one shoulder everything (even during those cheesy times circa 2001) I feel like this envelope open shoulder top style flatters me the most, so much that I didn’t even care it turned into a Bardot top as I walked. Just one more shoulder before summer goes forever. . Pink open shoulder top bxtwxxn (similar here & here) . Straight leg jeans Citizens of Humanity (or get it here & similar here & here) .

Fringing Fall

One of the (only) upside of fall must be being able to dress up in layers and knits because I’m thinking more and more about it and I can’t seem to find any other reason to love this unlovable son of a season. For many people it means unhappiness, illness, rain, raising hydro bills and winter coming but for individuals like me whose lives revolve around getting dressed, it means the season of no-sweat freedom. Stay with me fall, I have more sweaters for you. . Ivory fringe long knitted vest Mango (similar here & here) . Cropped boyfriend jeans Vintage Levi’s (similar here & here) .

Upside Down

My all time favorite outfits are usually the ones where I manage to turn one garment into something else completely: kimonos into skirts & skirts into strapless dresses were among my personal hits. So it should come as no surprise that whenever someone else does it for me, I go nuts. I tried wearing my shirts as wrap tops and skirts in the past but couldn’t do it quite right, thanks to this skirt that looks like an oversized shirt-apron I’m now on top of the world. .

Suede Lovin Has Me A Blast

From my previous personal experience I gather that it’s NOT OK to tell people you don’t like summer. Every time I make this declaration I’m faced with shock, rage and I think I lost some friends because of this opinion so I learned to rather keep it to myself. However it’s impossible for me to hide the joy of wearing trench coats again, especially suede ones. Everything I wear looks better with a long layer of thin outerwear so sue me, I love autumn, I love September. . Tan suede trench coat Persephone Vintage (similar here & here) .

Yeti On My Feet

About three years ago I found a long fur string (which was probably a stole once) at a vintage store in Montreal for just $10, under many many other fabrics and immediately thought I should have it. The friend I was with that day, who wasn’t particularly interested in fashion, looked at me in shock and asked me what the hell I’m going to do with it. “I don’t know, something, someday” I replied, thinking I’d probably hem a skirt or stitch a collar with it and left the store as the cashier thought I was buying it for a Halloween costume and mumbled some jokes. Three years later and that fur not only turned into several pieces of jewelry but also helped me transform my once-cool-now-dull Zara black slides into furry sandals, and I still have more fur left.
