You remember all those times your dad made a joke about how stylish and awesome he is and you just sat there feeling (openly) embarrassed about his super high waisted jeans and ugly, chunky but supposedly comfortable sneakers? Well folks, once again it’s established that fathers know what’s best because those ugly, chunky sneakers are the absolute shoe hits of the season. And while it took me some time to absorb and hop on board, I’m behind any trend that will allow me to wear sneakers and still be deemed fashionable (last year, during a dark period where sneakers are announced as “out” indefinitely, I almost had a heart attack). Besides, these breed of trainers are perfect to tone down feminine looks such as long frilly dresses or mini skirts – which helps me tremendously on a daily basis. My personal favorite is the ACNE Studios Manhattan (if you are willing to splurge), but Nike Air Max 95 or New Balance 624 would do just fine. Thank you dads for never giving up on your …
As though my shopping addiction, or my shoe addiction, or my shiny & vinyl clothing addiction wasn’t bad enough… As though missing Paris all the time and seeing it on everybody’s Instagram feeds everyday wasn’t hard enough… As though finding the Le Specs The Last Lolita sunglasses wasn’t tough enough… As though I needed more excuses to buy more and more sneakers… Paris Fashion Week (hence the fashion month) is over and street style was so SICK that now I want to buy everything and go to Paris at the same time so maybe you can help me by telling which organ is worth the most?
Two down, two more to go – the fashion week that’s the least cared about (despite giants like Burberry and stars like JW Anderson, Joseph, Rejina Pyo and so on; I don’t know why people still don’t take London seriously – to me it’s a lot more relevant than NY lately) is over now leaving a pile of Gucci fanny packs, mid-length dresses styled in not such a feminine way (my favorite!) and lots of blazers. Best of best from London Fashion Week street style coming your way!
The last thing I needed during a “we moved, we traveled so now we have to save a little” period was a fashion week that pushed me further and further to shopping with its street style scene but I guess we all knew it was coming. Even my husband knew it was coming. When it’s fashion week he just lets me be, possibly praying I’ll just stare and not try to buy every single thing on every single gorgeous woman. So far the damage is manageable but we have 3 more weeks so who knows what other piece I’ll attack next. More sock boots (more being the operative word here)? Printed long dresses? Polka dots? Balenciaga pointed toes or Celine toe cap sandals? A friend that I can twin with? Thank god I already have a fanny pack and biker shorts… The list goes on and on, so do the photos of best street style looks from NYFW and here they are, all 90 of them.
I know I’ve been neglecting the blog to a point where social services may take it away from me until I prove I can still be a good and responsible parent to it; I apologize to anyone who actually cares about it. BUT, even with all the moving/vacation craze, I wouldn’t (couldn’t) miss Copenhagen Fashion Week: my favorite of all non-major fashion weeks. The street style is as unique as the runway itself, crazy vibrant and always inspiring; makes you want to wear color over color. Even worse, makes you want to look forward to Autumn!
