I think there was only one way to make a slip dress look cooler and even more sexy at the same time and Millie +Lou managed to find it: hot pressing harriet prints on a vintage ivory satin apron dress. I’m so insanely in love with this dress I even got over my “wearing sleepwear outside” phobia (FOWSO?) – I needed a trench to make it more city-friendly but I’m taking this baby to vacation and there will be numerous nights where it will be just me and her (and some underwear probably…maybe). .

Fashion weeks usually make me really happy, despite all the “circus” leading up to fights between bloggers and editors (that I find really, really lame of editors btw), I look forward to fresh inspiration from runways and streets. However this time New York Fashion Week kind of made me sad when I saw all these amazing women looking just as fine even during horrible winter conditions, something which I always claim is the reason why I look like crap in winter. Apparently it’s not winter, it’s me. Here’s hoping these 100 best looks from NYFW starring Ramya Giangola and Jan Michael Quammie will light a fire in me.
No, in fact, there’s nothing rebellious about my outfit other than the fact that I’m still mad enough to go bare ankle so the name of the post is indeed referring to the latest Star Wars movie which I just saw (and LOVED) today. If you’re following me on Instagram and watched my stories you might know that I’m a big Star Wars fan, one who watches the entire trilogy at least 2-3 times a year (and the battle scenes of the prequels every now and then) and one who was skeptical when Disney first acquired the movie rights but was eventually content after watching The Force Awakens, though not completely satisfied as to why that movie was even necessary in the first place. Rogue One however, managed to exceed all my expectations with an amazing story line and an orgasmic Darth Vader scene (no further spoilers) so I’m a happy little fan today. .

I’m usually not that good with noticing details in a pile of “something” at first glance, I know what I like and don’t like but that’s pretty much it, which results in me having to check that said “something” over and over again with %110 attention to figure out styling tricks, accessories, lengths etc. Though that was not the case this time, probably because it was so dominant and obvious, sequin pieces put together with casual everyday clothing is like a much too literal yet ironic representation of “street style at a couture week”. Especially Miroslava Duma and Yasmin Sewell’s sequin & oversized blazer combos gave me serious style chills, making me dig up old photos for inspiration too. Here are my picks for the best everyday sequin looks, and a butt load of inspiration for how to wear them.
I’ve probably never wanted anything more than wanting this to be the last time I’ll wear a thick winter coat, until November at least, and unless Montreal is planning on throwing us another impromptu snow tragedy, it seems like we are good to go. And the best part of spring is getting to wear all the shoes that had to wait in dust bags for months, especially this one. I was a little skeptical at first as to whether they will be worth the splurge but in fact they were worth even more, best shopping decision I’ve made this year: unbelievable statement piece, insanely comfortable and actually keeps warm.
