Very Real Real

Very Real Real

The Fashion Medley

For the last couple of weeks I was betting against myself about when I’m going to give up and finally order something from The Real Real – an authenticated luxury consignment sale website offering amazing deals on thousands of stuff – and last week, I won. Or I lost. I don’t know. But I do know that I now own a gorgeous pair of Prada boots that I bought for a fraction of the price and I’m happy, cause I know what happiness is to me. It’s shoes.

Lemairezation

Lemairezation

The Fashion Medley

I don’t know about you but I’m seriously starting to get depressed every time I look at my outfit photos, while the rest of the world has already passed from spring to summer we are still miserably trying to make it through winter and getting happy when it’s plus 2 degrees or the pavement is non-icy enough to wear anything other than combat boots. For me, a relatively warmer weather means going a little more minimal, adopting a signature Lemaire style with my old Zara pieces.

. Brown leather boots Zara (similar here & here)

Stripe Town

The Fashion Medley

My 4th and final challenge for Smart Set’s 1 piece 10 styles project is here and I’m so glad to have done the grand finale with a stripe explosion. The item of the month for March is the striped skinny jean and what better way to style it with even more stripes, all the while having a go at the dress over pants trend I’ve been meaning to try for so long. Layering like an onion was an inevitable but in my case voluntary choice for these horrible winter days. After all, the only upside of winter is being able to wear one item from each clothing category one over the other.

Wishful Thinking

Wishful Thinking

The Fashion Medley

Last week, for a very brief period of time, it was so hot (well it probably wasn’t hot, but 7 degrees is basically summer in Montreal when it hits in March) that I not only ditched my boots for sneakers (or combats for suede boots in this case), coats for ponchos but also dared to bare my legs. In the process of letting myself go, Dynamite was my weapon of choice, giving me the chance to create a head to toe perfect pre-spring outfit. Now it’s winter again and all I can do is look at the photos, like it’s a retrospect, and do wishful thinking that I’ll be able to wear them again very soon.

Bell Bottomed Girls

Bell Bottomed Girls

The Fashion Medley

You didn’t think for a second that I’d wear the most 70’s outfit ever and not make wordplay with one of Queen’s best songs ever, especially when I get a chance like this, do you? I know that bell bottoms, or flares, or anything really can make the rocking world go round like fat bottomed girls do, but still they are very much on the front burner lately and I had to jump on the train at some point. Not my usual everyday style but I have to admit I’m liking it. GET ON YOUR BIKES AND RIDE!

. Cropped flare jeans H&M (very similar styles here & here)
. Black leather boots Inci (similar here & here)
