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. Thank you Nanushka for creating the dress of my dreams just in time for summer. . Cream weave dress Nanushka . Brown leather Puzzle bag Loewe (or get it here & here) .

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 …

Peek A Boo

Today is a very good day. Today I’m proud of myself because while there may be some people out there saving the world, I figured out a way to wear two summer pieces (in winter) both of which are quite hard to wear by themselves yet are very much loved. This wrap skirt is without a doubt the best skirt I’ve ever bought, totally compliments my figure and super stylish but the slit is just to deep for a boy like me to wear on a regular day. The white sundress however was already an under-dress for another apron, kind of see through so it was useless by itself. Then a photo I stumbled upon on Pinterest (or was it tumblr?) gave me the idea to pair these two and wow! Who could have known they were made for each other, like Kanye and Kanye. .

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. .

Connect The Dots

Look ma I’m wearing a dress, a maxi one with polka dots and frills no less! And the weird thing is, I’m not feeling girly at all. I’m wearing metallic, heeled boots with my ruffled dress and I’m not feeling girly. Is it the oversized trench? Is it the Vetements effect? I know I’m not that cool, what is it that makes sloppy girlish look this cool? I don’t know the answers but I know I’m more comfortable than I’ve ever been. .
