Two years ago I bought a pair of cropped jeans – I think they were by Stella McCartney – for a super duper reduced price. The fact that they were so cheap was probably because nobody thought these awkward length pants and shape would ever come back into fashion.. Boy have we been wrong!
If you would ask about my favorite colors, I would without any doubt tell you navy and dark green share the number one spot, followed by an on and off relationship with mustard yellow, a red-addiction on some occasions, and of course bubble gum pink, when I feel like it. Other colors, as much as I love the idea of “liking” them, they just don’t pass the bar. On me. Let’s be clear here, on me, which doesn’t mean I don’t like them in general. No judgement! But finding “your” colors is like… mmm really freaking hard! It took me about 30 years, and I still am sometimes pulled to the dark side – all black errrrrything… So the story of true color-love is fragile… but it’s there!
If there is one thing we’ve learned the past season, it’s that glasses are cool. The nerdier the glasses – opticals so to speak – the better. We’ve seen them with big framers, thin frames, and even Harry Potter was an inspiration to some. By accident I got my hands on these Chanel ones last August, and when I finally found the pair I saw on the Gucci runway earlier that year, I couldn’t help myself, and bought them.
After spending the most amazing weekend in the mountains for our 12 yearish anniversary it’s time to get back behind my laptop, and start the week… I’ve had easier Mondays… Somehow this one is going very very slow. All the things I planned to do this morning, I didn’t do so far, and this makes me quite behind on my schedule in preparation for Paris Fashion Week! But, somehow – and this is a new thing – I’m not feeling too stressed about it. Probably because I’ve sorted out most of my looks last week, scheduled my fittings upon arrival, and arranged a few of my favorite pieces to be delivered to Paris. Outfit-wise not everything is set in stone, but with my strategy of bringing key-pieces and looks, with the option of buying some basics when I get to Paris, I’m sure I will be fine. The only challenge now is to get everything in my two suitcases… for 8 days in Paris… But before I can get to that, I have to unpack my weekend suitcase… Which is one of the things I dislike the most!
Earlier this week I talked about transitional coats, wardrobe staples, and personal favorites. I showed you my favorite military-coat, and went on and on about why this is one of the pieces you should invest in. But when talking about wardrobe-investments, I realized there was another coat that should be on this list too: My Acne shearling coat.
