Girl Crush: Kamilya Kuspan

Kamilya Kuspan 15

With her trademark dreamy hair, always make up free exotic face and effortless style that boosts elegance and still manages to surprise every time with little remarkable details; this modern day Yoko Ono has been my muse for a very long time. Kamilya Kuspan was born in Kazakhstan but she’s now living in Paris working as a stylist, which makes me so happy because I get to see her street style shots every now and then. Besides her natural beauty, another thing you realize in her looks is how she repeats the same accessories (like the brown croco bag and the grey suede pumps) and tells a different style story each time. She makes you reconsider all your shopping habits and trend chasing tendencies. She’s perfection.

A New Superstar

A New Superstar

adidas superstar22

Move over Stan Smith, there’s a new star on the block. Adidas’s incredible style revival campaign continues with Superstar; iconic shell toe with three side stripes. Adidas at its best. If you don’t own one already (from your childhood or bought it in the last couple of months) you can get it here, before it’s soldout worldwide. A hint: if you want to stay ahead of the game, I strongly think that Gazelle is going to be the next best thing.

Thanksgiving Attire

As a non-american shopaholic who lives to eat, thanksgiving means guilt free binge eating & sales shopping in good conscience to me. With all the black friday & cyber monday sales coming up, I of course made my studies and piled up tens of items in my shopping cart(s) ready to be attacked when time comes. And the time has come guys. Shopbop‘s biggest sale of the year starts as of this moment and will last for an entire week, though I don’t think much will be left by December 1st. There are NO brand exclusions and the more you purchase the better the savings. (I’m the girl your parents would tell you to stay away.)

Here are my 5 recent favorite fall looks to copy that would ease your thanksgiving belly while amping up your style game.

The Winter Vest

The Winter Vest

The Winter VestIt doesn’t have to be a winter vest per se, any kind of sleeveless & open front jacket or coat you throw on over your sweaters and/or under your coats count as winter vests and they are awesome. Years ago, when I was trying to figure out the tricks of the layering trade, I discovered that a vest was the missing part of that unsolvable equation. Come summer or winter, a vest is the thing you need to unbland the look without compromising comfort. And just like pretty much everything else, it’s better when it comes in wool.

Must Have: Camel Coat

Must Have: Camel Coat

Must Have: Camel Coat

Life lesson of today: One simply cannot have too many camel coats. It’s so essential that it should have had its own initials by now, you know like a LBD – every woman has to have a CC. It makes every outfit look at least twice as expensive, it brings out the most of grey, black, white and blue jeans & it’s one of my personal favorites. I have a camel blazer, boyfriend, maxi, hooded and teddy; one suede and printed coat on the way and still there are at least two camel coats in all my shopping lists. After getting the stamp of approval from The Cut, I decided to make a post about the 20 must have camel coats of the season & 40 best camel street style looks.

Fire The Flare

Fire The Flare

Flare JeansI can’t think of another bottom – skirt, shorts, pants or otherwise – that looks good, I mean GOOD, on every.single.woman on earth. That super power is bestowed upon only and only one thing: flared trousers. Not bootcut, not boyfriend, not bell bottoms – flare is a complicated yet a Parisianly simple cut: fitting around thighs with gradually and tastefully widening cuffs starting from below the knee; flared trousers are the invisibility cloaks of real world. Elongating the legs by at least 10cm no matter how high your heels are and slimming you down 2 sizes at a time, it’s always a chic, safe, photo proof, easy to make a transition from day to night option that you should have in your closet in every possible color.

Why am I making a post about flared trousers now while they were always in fashion? Their only downside is (was) you have to keep on wearing your heels and can’t change into flats when you need to but now it’s acceptable, if preferable, to wear them with sneakers and flats with a shorter cuff. Hip hip hooray and fire the flare!
