Magali Pascal French Country

French Country   – New editorial, featuring one of my favorite labels, Magali Pascal. My interpretation of their new collection “La Cabine” below, think very French, slightly country, easy, effortless and altogether chic.

New Year Eclectic

  New Year Eclectic   – An eclectic look to start the New Year, a dress that references 70’s flair and disco, 80’s shoulder pads and excess, a luxe faux-leather puffer and Balenciaga sock boots that seem to just work with everything and anything.

L’appartement Magali Pascal

L’appartement   Magali Pascal   – An inspired city, an inspired interior and an inspired collection appropriately called L’appartement by Magali Pascal. Cue all-things Parisian…(I can almost taste the croissants) Think delicate lace, intertwined embroidery, ruffles and vintage prints, the details do all the work so you don’t have to. Perfectly pulled together and effortless, […]

Shape Up

I’m fully aware that I’m not the most lady-like ‘eh-hem lady’ that you’ve ever met.  With a track record of tomboyish behaviour when it comes to dressing (stealing dad’s cardigans included) this girl-slash-boy tends to shy aware from the overly pretty. However why would you cut off your nose to spite your face and when

Shop My Closet!

Shop my closet…   – From essentials to statement pieces, my closet edit is made up entirely of items in my wardrobe! You’ll find black bags on repeat, oversized silhouettes, monochrome, neutrals and denim. My favorite little luxuries to bigger investment pieces along side classic converse. A little essentials inspo for pieces that make up my wardrobe […]

To the Point

To The Point   – A look that speaks for itself when nothing but all-black-everything will do. Second skin boots, pleats and an oversized knit…Sharp, all-black and to the point! – Wearing Aritzia pleated skirt – similar splurge option / mid-range & budget-friendly Exact Black Oversized Knit | J.W.Anderson Bag Balenciaga Tall Boots (also avail. in ankle length here)

Spring Line Up

shot in collaboration with mytheresa.com Spring Line Up   – It all started with a skirt…I had every intention of posting a single look for a fresh Spring Story featuring a favorite new piece… my J.W. Anderson Striped Skirt from mytheresa.com. This idea quickly evolved, thanks to endless style options (and some indecision) but…I call these good problems! There is nothing […]

Black & Balenciaga

Black & Balenciaga   – Wearing my new hoodie on repeat. Oversized, slouchy, black and Balenciaga…I was sold immediately! Already styled it with boyfriend jeans, pleated skirt and favorite leather leggings. Doubled down and paired with Balenciaga sock boots here, because the more Balenciaga, the merrier… And I have to do a shout out to luisaviaroma.com, I ordered […]

Beyond Basics

Beyond Basics   – Covering all the basic bases…leather jacket, worn-in jeans, black boots & button down shirting…while these are all considered basic in theory, in this case, they go beyond the basics and work overtime as stand-out, hero pieces. Each with impeccable attention to detail, from statement sleeves to strategically distressed denim. Simply said, basics made better. […]

Knifes Edge

Monday life hack … When you’re running late and cannot work out what to wear, let alone begin to entertain the thought of executing an outfit with any real co-ordination … solution ‘the suit’. One entire outfit that comes packaged in a head to toe ensemble and requires no conscious aesthetically speaking thought process .. much like a […]

Luxe Black Layers

Luxe Black Layers   – Labels like Gucci and Balenciaga make up some of my investment wardrobe pieces, but when spending more than usual, I never shop trend and stick to classics. Think black ankle boots and chain crossbags, a simple oversized knit and distressed denim… key items with longevity that are basic (…but not boring) On the flip side, […]

Oversized Winter Whites

Oversized   Winter Whites – Oversized, slouchy and relaxed, wearing monochrome pleats & knits…but despite the obvious volume here, a little much-needed balance comes via my sleek Balenciaga boots. Altogether simple & uncomplicated while playing with texture & proportion. – Wearing Zara skirt + knit (similar skirt here and similar knit here) Balenciaga boots | Simon Miller […]

Sweater Weather

Sweater Weather   – To me, sweater weather, as people affectionally call it, is beyond conventional “sweaters”. When I think of sweater weather, I think of all knitwear, in all forms…and the best knitwear of all? Easy…cue the cashmere! This is the second time I’ve partnered with my friends at Naked Cashmere to show knitwear […]

Boss Boots by Everlane

It is officially time for boots. Leather and Suede. Always opting for ankle boots with block heels, pointed toes, and zippers to add an edge. The first choice will always be ones which combine comfort, minimalism, style/character, and qualitative fabri…

Ice Age

Ice Age   Trading in my usual all-black-everything for tonal icy hues in winter white & pale blue. My friends at Primary New York have me covered with this long-line, Michelle Waugh, cashmere coat…and while it also comes in black and navy, it was this icy blue shade that had me sold. It screams drama and luxury while still […]

Express Yourself

shot in collaboration with Express Express Yourself   – When in doubt, I love to wear all-black-everything, think effortless and minimal but not boring! Currently navigating my way through New York Fashion Week, it can get completely overwhelming with the sheer range of options, styles and looks to choose from. So how do you manage to stand […]

Sleek

Shot in collaboration with rag & bone Sleek   Back at it with rag & bone denim… I’m officially obsessed with my new jeans! I’m forever on the hunt for what I call “airport” jeans, my code for denim comfy and stylish enough for a long-haul flight. After all, if they can survive travel, they are […]

The Balenciaga Effect

  As I walk down the street where I live, I notice how strange I must look.  Walk is probably not the right word either .. slink, meander or even drunkenly shuffle would probably be better words to describe the movement that I would otherwise prefer to deem as walking. With the kind of sunglasses that […]

All Day Everyday

All Day Everyday   – Not sure if its a girl thing or a New York thing, but I seem to have a lengthy list of items I’m convinced I need to have with me when out and about, you know…”just in case” haha…When you’ve been stuck on subways or bumper to bumper Ubers and taxis like […]

Acne Studios Silhouettes

Acne Studios Silhouettes – A label synonymous with “it” girls, cool kids and all things edgy, Acne Studios has quite the cult following. It also has some of my favorite ready-to-wear silhouettes including the recognizable Jensen Ankle Boots and Canada Scarf. Wearing both here, along with minimal pieces and classics within the label for an all-black-everything Winter […]

Hounds Toothed

Houndstooth is back baby.  Originating in Scotland in the early 1800’s and then embraced by the upper class in the 1930’s as a symbol of wealth, you might say that the canine christened print has had a ‘checkered’ past. With some of our favourite designers aka Dior, Balenciaga and Acne unleashing the.. eh-hem ‘hound’ in […]

May / December

May/ December   My friends at Hironae – Paris are thoughtfully keeping me warm this December with their chunky May Cardigan. The perfect oversized, slouchy cardigan which has quickly become one of my staples. Paired with black pointy ankle boots, a simple white tee, sleek black leggings and its back to basics with this look. Somewhere between boho & […]

Military Influence

Military Influence   Free of extra, unnecessary embellishments, wearing new long-line coat from my friends at Marks & Spencer. Fits the mark for being current, but sticks to the classic end of the spectrum. Military trends, for me, can go too far at times and be on the brink of feeling too much like a costume. […]

Winter Whites

Winter Whites   When I think Winter Whites, I think of a wide range of muted shades in off-white, camel, nude and beige. De-saturated colors, all bordering on pastels but very much in neutral territory. I love layering these tones in wintery textures of leathers, wools and knits. This particular look stemmed from this buttery soft […]

Satin + Suede & Slouchy Dusters   I don’t need much convincing to get a jump start on Fall dressing…one cool(‘ish) New York day will do it! While most people hope for hot sunny weather and long for Summer days to drag on and on, I must admit I love a break in temperatures. The […]

Summer Interlude | Fall Dreaming with Moda Operandi

Summer Interlude   Fall Dreaming…   – I can’t imagine a more perfect collaboration for my first video project than to bring my new Moda Operandi wardrobe additions to life! Moda Operandi has been a favorite online shopping destination for me for a while now. I think of Moda as an “it girl”. A fashion insider […]

Boot Camp

You don’t need to be Dorothy from the Wizard Of Oz to prove that a good pair of shoes can change your life.  To be honest I’ve always been a shoe person, just take a look inside my wardrobe and you’ll see that if you’re anything like me, shoes take a priority over most things […]

Autumn Fade

If you haven’t already met her, her name is Faye, she likes taking long walks, holding all of my everything and goes with just about anything. For someone that owns one too many black bags,a Faye like this is the perfect fawny toned companion.  That’s one more step towards colour, even if it is a […]

My Picks of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

#Nsale   The Nordstrom’s Annual Anniversary Sale started today! With thousands of items on sale, it can seem overwhelming to navigate…where do you start? I got a jump start early this morning over a strong coffee (or two…) and sorted through essentials, staples, fashion forward finds, classics and can’t miss deals! I’ve always relied on Nordstrom’s […]

Shop NOIR

Bold, classic, powerful, dependable, mysterious, strong and luxe…there have been many ways to describe black. Always considered a fashion staple and default hue for us New Yorkers, there is just something about slipping into a fave black sweater or all black everything that just makes me feel polished, sleek and pulled together, even when the silhouette […]

Lineal Diversion

Considering the current state of my wardrobe .. (note to self: colour co-ordinated piles of clothing heaped over various pieces of bedroom furniture does not clarify as tidiness), I do not deserved to be welcoming more garments into the stable.   However 2 things .. firstly .. a tidy up of the ‘said’ above disaster zone is currently […]

Light Of Day

You could say that it’s been slightly busy around here lately.  Last week we had the production of a national Tiffany Campaign that I creatively directed, photographed and styled, with a team of 7, including 3 crew from interstate.  Thankfully the weather was perfecto and if you were following me on snapchat (‘amandashadforth’), you would […]

Go Big or Go Home   Big cuffs, big bag, big baggy jeans…check check and check. Feeding my love of all things oversized and breaking down all the details of a recent look. A nod to my comfort zone wearing pieces I somewhat disappear in while still finding balance and injecting a little edge. Wearing Anna […]

Cross Over

   So this is apparently the beginning of winter down here yonder in the southern part of the hemisphere.  With reports that this April may be the hottest on record when in fact we are nearing the end of Autumn, I’m confident in saying that trans-seasonal dressing now should officially have it’s own hashtag. Whether you’re […]

Going Nowhere

On location in the south of France, nothing could seem better than some of my favourite black classics after a long day discovering the secrets of the Cote D’Azur.  It’s all about minimal layering, a stand out shoe.. and oh just the right amount of Mediterranean breeze to achieve the kind of hair flick that […]

Lace Love

Lace Love   The last word I would ever use to describe myself would be “girly” but there are exceptions to the rule and Magali Pascal makes me want to break all my rules !! If you keep up with me on Instagram, you would have seen me wearing Magali Pascal dresses, blouses and skirts, none […]

Knit Separates + Top Coat

Knit Separates & Top Coat   So of course I found a way to wear knits into Spring…Eileen Fisher luxe silk and organic cotton knit separates feel soft but still have structure to maintain the boxy cut of the pieces that I was so drawn to. And while this skirt & sweater come in black, I […]

LA Story

LA Story…   Structure meets relaxed meets business meets casual…only a few pieces make up my latest look shot in lovely LA…but even though there are so few elements here, they all have impact and have versatility to spare. Each can be paired up or down depending on mood but all work well here in keeping […]

Acne Studios Boots

Classics, essentials, indispensable…there are many ways I could describe my 2 new Ankle Boot additions but really, at the end of the day, they are just plain cool ! Acne Studios iconic Jensen Boot and newer stacked heel version, Loma Boot add a pop of cool to any look. In-demand, often sold out (or at […]

Going Green…

Going Green   Leave it to me to find the perfect shades of neutral greens… although black is always my default go-to, its nice to mix it up once in a while. Embracing color here with army and olive tones in effortless sweater dress & wrap coat, anchored with essential black scarf and ankle boots, […]

All Black Everything

All Black Everything   If I could wear a version of this every day, I would ! Despite wearing an oversized coat and knit, in all black, against a canvas of white, I still feel like I kind of disappear and sink into this comfy uniform…a perfect cold day look mixing Winter textures, slouchy fit and sleek details. All […]

Slits, Wraps & Crops…

Slits Wraps & Crops   Last season, I did a feature on the art of Fall to Winter dressing,  A Good Transition Part 2. I wanted to address those in-between seasonal temperature shifts that change from day to day, sometimes requiring heavy coats other times an oversized wrap will do…this is just one of those looks. Still completely […]

New Year x New Additions…

New Year New Additions   – I am a fan of fewer, better pieces…uncomplicated, rooted in quality but with attention to design. I try and surround myself with simple objects that have impact from clothing, jewelry & accessories, beauty & scents and even to home elements that define my space and make up my everyday. When […]

Charles & Keith in Soho

Soho with Charles & Keith – Street Stomping in Soho with Charles & Keith ! My friends at C+K recently sent me my favorites from their new Fall/Winter Collection of Shoes & Handbags.  The iconic Cast Iron architecture of Soho is the perfect location to road test, or street test in this case, my new pieces. Loving […]

Fashion Bunker…

Fashion Bunker…   Thanks to my friends at BNKR (aka fashionbunker.com) for introducing a little color in my life…still very neutral, with a nod to my usual color palette, this khaki knit + skirt combo give me just enough variety and twist on my everyday but are still rooted in my tonal & neutral go-to’s !

Falling for Prints…

Falling for Prints…   I was lucky enough to get to raid the Yigal Azrouel Sample Sale early, this printed dress was the first thing to catch my eye. While I’m usually not a “print” person I definitely made an exception for this subtle but bold print that makes a statement. Paired it here with […]

Isabel Marant Naelle Leather Boots

As always I want yet another pair of black boots…Still love the Isabel Marant “cone” heel and have a few a pairs from season’s past with this styling feature and pointed toe. My other pairs are suede and have much wider ankle so love the sleeker update to one of my fave styles ! Isabel […]

Current Obsession / Acne Studios Jensen Chelsea Boots

Let me start off by saying, who isn’t obsessed with these boots ??  I resisted as long as I could to not get on the band-wagon, so to speak, as everyone has these but resistance is futile… The Acne Studios Jensen Boots have been on my wishlist since last Fall and I regretted not getting […]

Neutralize

A change of season means a change of perspective.   In the southern hemisphere Summer is nearly upon us and it’s time to rework the wardrobe which may sound easy, that is unless you have an inability for making clear decisions like myself, the text book Libran.  Sometimes however, I believe the weakness to be precise […]

Snake Oil

Breaking from the routine of owning 4000 pairs of black shoes, I must admit that I was proud of myself the other day when I came across these python beauties from Isabel Marant.  Not really what you’d call a colourful shoe, but with an A+ in the personality stakes all the way, the python ankle […]
