The weather as of now is definitely hormonal. This constant change from cold to %#%#^$$&$ cold, has got me thinking about which coats I will be sporting this season. They say a woman’s shoes makes them, however I beg to differ as a woman’s coat definitely defines her. The palatial fabric one drapes their body in truly shows their personality. A sleek, modern camel coat may read as sophisticated or simple and safe. The hardcore coat rockers are those who chose to wrap themselves in a poodle. Yes, a poodle; nubby, soft, poodley goodness. So, this cold as F season, chose to sport a poodle. Just imagine yourself strolling down the street, eyes in awe and babbling mouths asking “Poodle or Coat”?
School is fully back in swing, hard to wrap my head around it. As much as I want to hold onto summer, fall is here and it’s time to get back into the fashion groove. This time of year I like to transition my wardrobe by incorporating summer favorites into falls new. This starts with a base; usually a basic white tee and an amazing pair of chunky shoes. This season I’ve been OBSESSED with Steve Madden’s Schoolz. They’re so very comfy and make me feel like a badass; what a score!

Have a great weekend. Xxx
In my sixteen years I’ve learned two important things; stay in school(thank you grandpa) and dress as you please. The art of dressing is an adventure chalked with ups and downs. The downs being a time when you don’t quite know who you are and it therefore shows in your trendy skinnies. The highs; a time when have figured yourself out and have come to the realization you are in fact dressing for yourself and not for others. Leandra Medine is for me and woman alike a light in the darkness, she’s like Prada platforms among basic platforms beside her on the racks in the store, one of a kind and a dresser in her own right. The erection of Man Repeller was a liberating moment, I finally felt as though my convoluted ideas of outfits that my peers frowned upon made sense and I could be myself in my clothes. I could wear my white sneakers, silk skirt, and mens blazer with pride. She taught me to dress as I pease and stand tall. I owe a lot to Leandra as she has guided me down the path fashion, through the computer, hand in hand.
This photo basically defines my life.
Some of my favorite looks…
Sisters creating music, a perfect combination, especially when the sisters are not only making musical breakthroughs but sartorial breakthroughs as well. Haim has been together since 2006 and is now at the top of our fashion radars. Each sister has such unique style yet they seem to melt perfectly as it is clearly presented in all of their 90s-esque, free spirited photographs. Dressed classic with a true edge, each individual, they radiate a cool rocker girl vibe. They’re the kind of girls you see buying milk and are overwhelmed by why they look so great doing it. These three girls are definitely ones to watch.
We can thank farmer Joe for this one. Overalls are just about the greatest sartorial accident EVER…and I mean EVER. What started as a convenient garment for farmers has evolved into a staple for women. What I love most about overalls are the endless possibilities in styling them. A pair of overalls can be thrown on with a t-shirt and sneakers or an oxford and pumps, a chunky knit and boots, hell, even with nothing if you so desire. Overalls are what I call an outfit goal: the perfect amount of comfort along with a hint of high fashion.
We are over half way through the summer now which for me means the anticipation of fall. Fall for me and for most woman alike means the beginning of a new meaningful relationship with her clothes. The roll around of september is a fresh start, a reinvention of old pieces with a cocktail mix of the new. This fall I have to reinvent the old by going mod. Much of my sartorial choices already come from a mod inspiration to some degree but this fall is all about full-fledged minis and rock ‘n’ roll as this years runways have fully embraced. Consider the following…
1) CARVEN wool-crepe mini skirt
2) TIBI ribbed-knit cotton sweater
3) Ankle or over the knee boots(preferable patent-leather)
4) Any jewelry that resembles space metal
5) Clean cuts
6) Portable record player(If you’re a die hard)
Cheers to fall.
Kate moss. Say her name and heads turn. Just the thought gives me goose bumps. Kate Moss has been my ultimate source of inspiration since I was a little girl. If she doesn’t epitomize effortless beauty, I don’t know who does. She is the kind of women who could wear a sack with some gorgeous pumps and start a new trend. She could appear with olive green lipstick and today’s youth would be emulating tomorrow. I have a Pinterest board dedicated to her and all her glory. I keep just about every glossy magazine clipping I come across. An obsession? I think, yes! I love every South London bit of her. Kate Moss is truly a boss. Moss the Boss.
