If someone asked me (right this second) what the most crème de la creme item of clothing is, on the market, at this exact moment, I’m pretty sure I would shove this JPEG into their face.
I’m also pretty sure Hieronymus Bosch would too.
Get it HERE.
Got the blues?
Slip on some shoes.
Recently, the color blue has seriously tickled my fancy (serious tickles, people). In this case, however, were talking shoes – blue shoes. Why blue shoes? Because blue shoes are crème de la trendy (particularly for FW 12), but if done wrong (aka Courtney Stodden) there is a high chance of losing (all of) your friends. So, lets keep this crème de la crème and (of course) a little sassy (as one must always stay true to some bad-ass-sass). In dedication to Elvis, I’ve compiled three outfits in hopes of revealing the (at times, underestimated) power and versatility of: the blue shoe.
I think there is this misconception that if one wears blue shoes, one mustn’t toy with other colors – as if the color blue, is more than enough. This, I disagree with. Blue lends itself to versatility: it should be taken advantage of, not wasted. So, (trail) mix your blues up, people. Mix in color, mix in print, mix in texture – MIX IT UP.
First outfit: Stella McCartney pants, T by Alexander Wangtop, Stella McCartney beanie, Dannijo necklace, Jérôme Dreyfuss bag, Pierre Hardy shoes, sunglasses by Illesteva, cuffed bracelets by Noir and Anndra Neen. Second outfit: top by Lanvin, Moschino Cheap and Chic pants, Dannijo and Cast of Vices bracelets, necklace also by Dannijo, YSL bag and shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood. Third outfit: Versus jacket, 3.1 Phillip Lim leather pants, headpiece by Erickson Beamon, cuffed bracelet by Anndra Neen, the bag is Jimmy Choo and shoes by Miu Miu. And… I’m done – keep it crème de la crème, people; as always!
F/W 12, CHAIN YO SELF
Now that summer is nearing to an end and fall is approaching us (except not in LA, as there really is only one season here: the season of sun), we can begin to ponder: what to buy, what to wear, and who to hate (Courtney Stodden). Booyah. Recently, my heart has coveted all things badass. But by badass I really mean, chains: big chains, small chains, short chains, long chains, thick chains (you get it).
Why? Because nothing is more provocative than adorning oneself in something that legitimately could be categorized under: body armor. So, when is it appropriate to chain? It is always appropriate to chain. But before beginning the process of ‘chaining’ we need to get some points in to clarify chaining the right way VS chaining the wrong way. Picking the right kind of chain is essential – one does not want to look like Marilyn Manson’s sister.
Delicate chains are your safest (or easiest) pick, the more delicate the chain the more you can wear. The thicker the chain, the less you should wear. Make sense? I always like to, however, take this suggestion with a grain of salt. Some of us (myself included) are devotees to bracelet-and-necklace-stacking. When it comes to jewelry, I prefer to mix larger chains with more delicate ones. Or, in the words of trail mix (aka completely made up by myself): mix that shit up.
Get these pieces here (left-to-right-to-left-then-right-again): Gold chunky chain bracelet by Michael Kors, nude iphone case by Stella McCartney, Prada chain link sandals (on sale BTW), Stella McCartney Falabella bag in black, nude Isabel Marant rio chain-strap sandals, black chain belt by DVF, Lanvin gold tassel necklace, Stella McCartney Falabella tote, McQ Alexander McQueen ankle boots and scarf, Michael Kors ring and last but not least gold-plated necklace by Aurélie Bidermann.
Yesterday was my last day interning at the Peninsula Beverly Hills, so today I have allowed myself to move three times: from my bed to my couch, from my couch to the bathroom (when a girls gotta go…you know the rest), then a quick pit stop to the kitchen, where I grabbed a bag of pistachios, and now I’m back where I started. Her name (my couch) is Soothie, by the way: because she soothes me (ha-ha-ha) – ok, enough.
Today, we’re talking headwear. Hats people, hats. I have always been that person who buys a hat but never (ever) wears the hat. Hats are an inconvenience; expensive hats are an even bigger inconvenience. Countless of times, in the past, (never anymore, N-E-V-E-R anymore) I chose to wear a hat and then only on my return home will I realize, ‘wait, where the crème de la crème is my hat?’ Seriously, where do my hats go? What’s worse than having your hat burgled by hat-burglars (who, by the way, exist predominantly at night clubs) are the hat-burglars that only want to borrow - like they don’t have the balls to follow through.
To my hat-burglars: once you have taken my hat and put it on your own head, I do not want it back. Let me repeat myself: I-do-not-want-it-back. Don’t attempt to reposition it back on my head, no – don’t do that. It has touched your scalp and thus no longer has any use to me. In dedication to Marilyn, here is a photograph I have personally created to all you hat-burglars out there.
Lets move on as I am not one to let a few negative experiences forever pollute my stance on anything – even this one. So, we’re all going to give hats another go. Which hat, you ask? THIS hat. But WAIT, before you freak out about the choice of hat let me explain why I have chosen to use this flat cap and not one of a more common caliber, like a fedora: because everyone knows how to wear a fedora. Google it, magazine it, look out your window – fedoras are everywhere. This, however, is not. Give it a chance people. Let me show you how crème de la cool this flat cap really is. Here are two outfits I’ve compiled together using Faith Connexion’s denim flat cap.
(this is mad hatter cool and there is nothing cooler than mad hatter cool)
For the first outfit: the striped top is MiH Jeans, Jason Wu’s leather pencil skirt, ‘C’ brooch by Markus Lupfer and shoes by Altuzarra. The necklace and bracelets are all Dannijo (they can do no wrong). Now to the second outfit: Acne’s parker silk shirt (roll up the sleeves), bad-ass-crocodile-print Roberto Cavalli skirt, Giuseppe Zanotti leather booties and the clutch is Jil Sander’s leather lunch bag (which is currently sold out everywhere – I know…I know). Again, all bracelets are Dannijo – sue me.
Stay mad people, mad as a mother-phuckin-hatter.
