Well, now that fashion month is over and I am safely back to LA I finally have time to do a couple of posts with my Paris outfits 🙂 This one is from a beautiful Sunday afternoon that probably was the only ‘day off’ I had in a month and we went brunchin’, flower shopping and wine-drinking. I wore this fab Chanel-esque jumpsuit (very similar here) with a warm cashmere sweater from Basler (similar here) and a great pair of brogues from a French brand called Mellow Yellow (similar here, and here) I also had a wool jacket to go with this outfit that I had to take off as it suddenly got warm and sunny!
I have spent a day in Milan with my family before heading to Cinqueterre (Italian seaside) and we had a fantastic time gelato-eating, aperitivo-drinking, shopping and finishing off with Magic Flute opera at La Scala. Busy day but just one outfit that I wanted to share with you:)My absolute favorite striped 2-piece is from Loup, a NYC-based brand inspired by Parisian film, art and fashion icons such as Brigitte Bardot and Jane Birkin. Those very 70-s wide high-waisted culottes and belted kimono jacket look equally stylish with heels or Converse –
It’s almost fall….but still summer. How to dress? Depending on where you live days can be pretty hot but evenings get really chilly so little white dresses are ready to go hibernate on shelves and hangers till next summer. Even though autumn is clearly approaching, many of us are still not ready for sweaters, thick denim, sneakers and boots – we need a fall transition plan. Some people are never cold, I’m sure each of you have one of these superhuman on your friends list:) That girl in a short backless dress that is sitting on a terrace with an ice margarita at 60F (15 degrees celsius for my dear Europeans) –
SOME THOUGHTS ON QUALITY OVER FAST FASHIONLike many of you, I have a very busy life. Rare are the moments where I can sit down and relax, read a book, fake online-shop by adding items to cart and never pressing ‘checkout’, do silly stuff just to kill time. Busy life has also affected my shopping habits- I went from impulsive frequent shopping for things I don’t need to carefully selecting what I buy, simply because I am tired of the waste and tired of things I wear once and don’t want to look at ever again.
Those of you who travel a lot or who lived in different countries will agree that one’s style naturally adjusts to the current habitat. When I lived in Paris my color palette was to the point: black, grey, navy, beige. When I moved to London my style has changed completely and that is when I promised myself to never shop in one country for another country :))) Since I moved to LA my style has evolved again. Here in Sunny California I feel like giving in a little and embracing the boho-vintage vibe that is so predominant in LA.
