The Fashion Medley for Carrera

Carrera Bound

As I was trying to find a witty title for this outfit post (which quite frankly is the hardest thing after finding Instagram captions) I realized the Carrera sunglasses I’m wearing already have the perfect name. Created using the retro aesthetic of the classic pilot shape bound together with a double metal bridge and the iconic Carrera logo, the name may be hinting at anything; a destination, a root, a union… For me, it’s a bold way to embrace the good old pilot with a hint of red, a color I’m trying to adopt into my everyday looks. .

Concrete Jungle

I fell in love with this dress the minute, nay, the second I saw it (and here’s proof) so it’s no surprise that I immediately made it mine. Everything about it is just perfect; the fabric, the length, tassel detail at the skirt, the belt, the neck… Flattering and not so girly, subtly sexy but mostly cool.

The System

I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of uniforms. I was probably the only girl in high school who was more than content with the dress code (with slight rule breakers of course) and despite my interest in fashion and the constant need to be the first one to try something new as a blogger or always do something different, I’ve always felt more comfortable when I’m wearing my wardrobe staples. That’s probably why when you see me on a regular day I’ll be wearing pretty much the same things: tapered pants, boyfriend jeans, basic t-shirts or tank tops, simple non-stretch maxi dresses, oversized sweaters and my most comfortable pair of shoes. This style formula has never failed me and now we have a brand that’s creating and delivering that formula for us. Introducing EILEEN FISHER and The System ladies and gentlemen. With a focus on 8 core pieces at the heart of the system, EILEEN FISHER wants to show the world we can do more with less, buy fewer pieces and still create endless …

Turn It Around

One of the happiest “fashion” moments of my life was when I learned, two years ago, that COS was opening in Montreal. Before that I was literally saving money to shop from the brand whenever I’m in Europe so it was unreal for me that I would have access whenever I want. I love it so much that if I’m not supposed to shop I don’t enter the shop at all because I know that I will buy at least one thing every time I go in. Every single item is so well tailored with the right fabrics that it’s no coincidence whenever someone asks me where I bought something the answer is almost always, COS. This dress is my last favorite and it fits so freakin well that even when I wear it backwards it still looks good (yes it’s backwards in these photos and I didn’t realize it until I came back home). .

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) .
