Spring 2014 : Outfit 47

It’s so hot right now, going out in anything but shorts and sandals seems unbearable! Today i’m wearing one of my very old A.P.C shirts. Probably from 2011 or 2012, but I just love it, the shape is just perfect! It’s so hard to find a wider but shorter classic shirt, I find they make them extremely long and in my opinion that is not very flattering, it shortens the figure. The best part of this shirt though is the color, a mix of blue and purple, something like a dark lavender maybe? I’m not sure how to classify it, I think it really depends on the light, but I just love it!

I’m wearing: Ray-Ban sunglasses (get them HERE), A.P.C shirt, Wood Wood shorts and Salt Water sandals that you can get HERE. Handbag is Louis Vuitton.

How I wear: LBD Little Black Dress

I decided to start doing a few new things in my blog. One of them is the one garment, three ways (or four: one for each season). Also I came up with the idea of making a summary of my staples, how I wear them and where you can get similar items. Since the weather has been so hot lately, lets start with something you can wear all year long, but that I have been wearing a lot in hot days.

So for today: how I wear my LBD Little Black Dress in hot weather.

1.- I styled my white collar LBD by Sandro with black Chanel flats and my Chanel flap again. For a similar dress I found this one by Boutique by Jaeger that you can SHOP HERE.

2.- I styled my skater LBD by The Kooples with beige Chanel flats and my Chanel flap. For a similar dress this one by Free People is quite close and you can GET IT HERE.

3.- I styled my knee length LBD by Gap with Robert Clergerie heels and yet again my Chanel flap. I found an almost identical dress by Topshop that you can SHOP HERE and a classic pair of heels for a fraction of the price by Topshop too. GET THEM HERE.

For a black chain bag in the line of my Chanel check this bag by Whistles, it’s gorgeous at a much much lower price. SHOP IT HERE.


Inspiration: The Row Pre-Fall 2014

I know, I know! We’re not even in summer and we already have to think about fall? At least with the weather here it is unbearable to think about this kind of clothing yet, but with my upcoming trip this week to a somewhat cooler place, where spring/summer is not what I’m used to, inspiration is needed! Browsing through designer collections is one of my favorite sources of inspiration, so when one of my favorites came up, I decided to share it with you.

If it were up to me, i’d wear The Row head to toe frequently. All the collections, every single one of them is so breathtaking. The cuts, the colors, accessories, everything is so wearable, and seems so comfortable and so real it is hands down one of the best (in my opinion) every year.

About this particular collection I love the choice of the models, nice, fresh idea to only use mid-age, older models, clothes look just as special and beautiful as in a younger one. I also love the use of the camel color in this collection, the longer skirts, and the footwear, the flat mules I would so love to wear them, a great alternative to loafers and flats.

With this in mind, I know feel more inspired to go back to thicker garments for a few days.

Spring 2014: Outfit 46

Trini Acne shirt The Kooples skirtTrini Chanel flap black outfitTrini black outfit chanel bag   Today i’m in an all black outfit again! But quite opposite to last week’s. Today is all about casualness and comfort and relaxed vibes. Yesterday I was watching the first episode of Downton Abbey, a series I have wanted to watch for ages, but caught in between The Killing, Girls, Looking and Breaking Bad, I had not time for a fifth one. Finally I finished three out of those four and decided to start a new one. I was not expecting to find such great quotes and one instantly got my attention: “No one wants to kiss a girl in black”. Right away I was reminded about Coco Chanel, specially because the series is happening in the same era, and all I could think of is how Chanel would have said exactly the opposite. Then I went even further and just thought about how many times we sober girls, and I bet some of you my lovely readers have heard this more than once, get the “boring” adjective in reference to our outfits. To me all black outfits, and in general soberness is underrated of course, always will be, but it also is everything but boring! The fun factor does not lie on colors, it lies on so much more elements such as fabrics, cuts, details. I do understand though that only people with a sharp eye can see it, and that is the minority all along. So therefore probably the “Kardashians” of the world (sorry I could not think of anything tackier at the moment) will probably always be more appealing to the masses than the “Cocos”.

I’m wearing: Ray-Ban wayfarer sunglasses, Acne Studios t-shirt, The Kooples skirt, Adidas Gazelle sneakers via and Chanel bag. bloglovin
