Belt the Bag

I literally can’t get enough of this belt bag trend, and I have to say I’m not always this well put together when I wear one. I usually just hang it around my shoulder and forget about it –  but that’s the whole point. Whether it’s around your waist or on your shoulder, you can just forget about it. And whilst I love the style factor bags brings to outfits (+ the color factor for me) I simply can’t stand carrying something with me all day. This one just stays there quietly while emphasizing my waistline, what more can you ask of something so little? . Sunglasses Le Specs x Adam Selman .

Polka Revelation

I could have sworn that polka dots was the print I dislike the most up until a year ago. I love stripes, I enjoy a good floral every now and then, animal prints are totally welcome and so does anything abstract but I never, ever thought I’d be this into polka dots. I basically can’t stop buying anything dotted: blouses, dresses, scarves – bags even. I’m also enjoying the very few days you can sport a blazer, bare leg, combat boots combo so all’s well here. .

Not So Subtle

I know no one will believe me when I tell that I’ve always worn my button down shirts one part tucked in and the other part out ever since high school and it has nothing to do with Vetements – especially when I’m head to toe Vetements styling overdose – but it’s true. It’s like telling you always knew your team will score or how the movie will end after it happened, you have to make the declarations beforehand to be credible, but if I spend enough time in old photo albums I may find a couple of “rebellious” high school looks with my oversized shirts and super mini skirt (only time in history I wore mini skirts) to prove my point. Though I can’t deny the not so subtle Vetements references appearing in every single outfit of mine lately. . Black oversized leather jacket Zara (similar here & here) .

Plaid Echo

I don’t know if the term “never say never” applies to anything more than fashion choices in this life but I know I’ve said “well I never thought I’d see myself in this thing” more times than I’m proud to admit. Colorful plaid, for me, is one of those things that was always a no go; check print I’m fine with but gingham was a hellish nightmare so much that I was genuinely upset when I saw the F/W 16 runway filled with plaid earlier this year. Yet here I am in a plaid blazer, a purple one for that matter. Now I desperately need to find some more styling options to integrate this new “thing” into my wardrobe.

Ball In My Court

The title of the post is a part of the little poem I just wrote, it goes; Balenciaga on my mind… and that’s pretty much it. Everything from the last two Balenciaga collections is on my mind and it has completely changed my styling habits altogether. Call me a fashion victim but I can’t wear my jackets and coats properly anymore; I constantly feel the need to open the shoulders, button it wrong or at least choose the most oversized design possible, all the while feeling glad I kept my still-relevant-last-season white booties, found the tree-that-keeps-on-giving vintage Levi’s 501s and recently bought freakish-bargain-find Forever21 handbag. .
