I'm developing a penchant for furry, fuzzy, or fluffy textured clutches. I don't know why, it's quite irrational, but I have an inkling that it stems from my lifelong fondness of stuffed animals. I think I've come to believe that a fluffy clutch is the grown-up's edition of a teddy bear, something soft and moderately huggable that can be carried everywhere. On another note, I also have a craving for embellished pieces featuring lovely, sparkling jewels, which can make any plain t-shirt more glittery and fun. It appears I have the fancies of a five-year-old at the moment, but so be it.
Anyway here's a tune to listen to for today, it's super good:
As I write this, I'm sitting happily in my cozy house reveling in the bliss of the first snow day of the year. I woke up this morning, drowsily peeked open one eye, and almost cried when I registered the unbelievable winter wonderland scene outside my window, the bedside alarm clock that read 9 A.M., and the realization that I'd evaded the educational system for one heavenly day. So, in order to appreciate the joy of a snow day to its utmost authenticity, I swear that after this update I won't go on the internet again. Instead, I'm looking forward to the old-fashioned drill of watching movies, reading books, playing boardgames, and sipping hot cocoa.
I was in a heated fervor when scouting for pieces to create this set. In fact, this was all passionately spontaneous. I was scrolling through some Art Basel photos online, and it transported me to this awesome, bizarre place in my mind where I saw everything to the soundtrack of Funky-town. It's amazing what an "anything-goes" attitude can do. Suddenly, as I scrolled through online shops, my eyes were opened to all these colorful, fantastic garments, shoes, and accessories that I would normally never have the originality to appreciate. And voila, this set was made.
Among my favorite labels featured here are Charlotte Olympia (of course. they're everybody's, meaning my, favorite all the time these days) and the SUNO x The Webster capsule.
I wish I was in Miami so badly right now, I say as I watch snow fall and ice freeze outside my window...
Like everyone else, and as evident by my Tumblr, I've been obsessed with blacks, whites, and grays, with crisp lines, with effortless minimalism, and with a modern-chic aura. Enjoy this mood board that pretty much sums up the go-to mindset in the fashion realm for fall 2013:
In my small and sartorially-cautious hometown, I'm normally not one to wear bold statement pieces like this coat, with wool like a fuzzy, blushing sheep. It's a subtly whimsical thing no matter how you dress it up or down and I wish I had the guts to proudly wear it. But alas, I've instead been sticking to relatively safe, while still chic, winter shades of black, gray, white, deep green, deep red, beiges of all kinds, etc., etc. I like my moody color palette, but I was happy to see this emerging trend of lovely, soft-hued overcoats! They brighten up any dreary December outfit, and must be so warm to bundle up in. Perfect for holiday shopping in the city while shielding yourself from blustering winds.
The boxy sweater is definitely the staple piece for this winter season. Just pair it with your favorite skinnies, a chic heel, and a dash of jewelry to get away with a modern luxe look while staying blissfully comfortable. I chose an irresistibly adorable MARC by Marc Jacobs 'Critter' Cat Dial Watch for this look, along with a sheer NARS foundation to give you a fresh glow. For shoes, indulge a bit in some cream-colored ankle boots with a quirky, golden heel. Pair it all off with a supple, leather clutch and you're good to go. Simply substitute different colors, textures, prints, and jewelry to give this basic outfit endless variety.
I've decided to reawaken my Polyvore account from its slumber. It's with the intent of styling my own looks while avoiding failed attempts at fashion blogger modelling. For this set, I put together "a frosty-hued ensemble," as the self-explanatory title so describes. The powder blue, chiseled gray, and inky navy epitomize for me the color scheme of a light flurry in early December. And I'm such a fan of the oversized over coat trend, in all its man-repelling glory. As for the rest of the outfit, these days you can't go wrong with a flared skirt and black boots.
