I have a weak spot for masculine suits, so you can imagine how happy I got when I saw this one with the open sleeves. Very unique and it gives the whole look a total different vibe. In motion they feel very 70s, yet when standing still it’s more like a cape. Either way beautiful and the playfulness makes it a great pieces to a wardrobe that’s already full of black jackets – like mine.
It feels like forever ago that Adam – Le 21ème – and I shot this “Everyday Icons” feature for H&M Life. As people around me know, I’m a very inpatient person, so I had kind of a meltdown waiting to share this with you… Yesterday morning it finally happened and I’m absolutely thrilled with the result!
I wouldn’t say I’ve ever had a real issue with my length – I’m 1.68 – but growing up with two super tall model-like sisters, made me always feel a little “short”. Having that said – my legs being at least 10 cm shorter that theirs – I must admit I like to play the long-leg-game every now and then, and hide a pair of super high heels under my favorite flared jeans. Not that I have a choose really, otherwise I have to tailor them big time. Anyway, the result is just as I want it to be: like my sisters’ legs, when they wear a pair of Converse with their flared jeans!
With a wardrobe clean out also comes a seasonal laptop clean out. All outfit posts from last Fall/Winter, press features, and other stuff I collected in a million random folders have to be arranged and transferred to a safer place, a place where I can make sure it never gets lost. So when I was going through all folders from the shoots Jeff and I did, I found this look, which I ended up not posting, because I’d totally forgotten about it!
Starting the week with some casual glitter in an unusual combination. At the time I shot this look – which I have to admit is a little while ago – it wasn’t anywhere near possible to wear this dress without thick tights or, as I did in this look, a pair of jeans. I’m very aware of the fact that this look won’t be something everyone will appreciate, but I personally love the “weirdness” of it. A mix of favorites, making a statement, while being playful. The perfect recipe for the Monday morning!
