  • WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT HEDI
    on Oct 1, 2014 in Runway
    We really do. I mean, I know a lot of you aren't too fond on Slimane and I understand why you may dislike his work for Yves Saint Laurent, but for SS15 he featured wide brim hats, fluffy coats, leather and platform sandals... and those are only a few...

  • BABY BLUE
    on Sep 16, 2014 in Outfit
    Although I've never been the firmest believer in love at first sight, I think it is safe to say that this old folk (the overalls, that is) fell for each other pretty fast. And if you need proof let me just tell you I have been wearing these for...

    FILED UNDER: OUTFITUnbuttoned is the way to go. Always. Especially if you're like me and only wear a bra when it's absolutely necessary. For the most part, I keep all of my shirts and blouses open to JLo at the 2000 Grammys level, with a lace bralett...

    on Aug 5, 2014 in COS Loafers Personal
    FILED UNDER: PERSONALI know it might be too hot to wear mid-calf socks with loafers, but as Icona Pop's most well known and slightly annoying song says; I don't care, I love it. For two reasons, 1: I don't know how to dress appropriately for summer.
