Celine Pre Fall 2018

My most recent Cèline experience (and a certain highlight of the year) involved having the opportunity to wear one of my favourite looks from the Spring 2018 Ready To Wear show, Phoebe Philo’s last Ready To Wear collection for the French luxury house of our dreams. In my eyes Philo has always been one step ahead, whether its Furkenstoeks

The Long & The Short Of It

Today we’re going to talk about proportions… and no you heard me right not portions (I’ll will definitely have fries with that), but proportions as in ratios in the fashion sense.

The Patriot

If you’re not the girl who lives in Paris, you’re most likely me … yep that’s right that girl who imagines that she lives there. On the weekends I order croissants, when I leave my makeup on at night I like to reason that it’s ok because it’s so very French no? And I can […]

Ice Age   Trading in my usual all-black-everything for tonal icy hues in winter white & pale blue.

Celine Spring 2018

Entering a marshmallow-cloud-like tent within a Parisian Tennis Club felt somewhat comforting. And this comfort was further enhanced by wooden benches covered in Céline printed sleeping bags. Now that’s what I’m talking about, good ol’ fashioned camping…  But I knew this was going to be a camping experience that I was neither previously accustomed to, nor had encounter before.The bespoke Céline […]

How to be (successfully) overdressed

In this look: Dress: Hana Tajima for Uniqlo How to be (successfully) overdressed. Hint: channel Holly Golightly, in the supermarket, on the train, at the Laundromat… Created in collaboration with Uniqlo Australia Everyone is looking at you – whispered my commute companion, gesturing at the gaggle of archetypal scarved-to-the-upper-lip Parisian Madames that were our fellow passengers. ‘I guess you’re a bit overdressed for the Metro’, he concluded. Had I the get-up-and-go to argue at that moment, I might have suggested a number of similarly plausible explanations more kind to my eight in the morning delicate self-esteem. However, glancing down at my flowy bias cut dress (from the functional and beautiful Hana Tajima for Uniqlo collection), the floor length skirt of which almost needed a seat all on its own, and feeling the weight of my oversized sunglasses on the bridge of my nose, I had to admit to feeling somewhat ridiculous within the context of this commonplace scenario. As one determined to experience life by living out film references, I felt very much like a Holly Golightly in that quintessential Audrey Hepburn film. The protagonist, lending circumstance to the film’s name, takes a flimsy takeaway pastry and coffee breakfast while […]

Function & Form

Function & Form   When you wear a lot of all-black everything like me, you rely on a twist of a classic to make an all black wardrobe feel different, despite having re-occuring pieces that can feel similar or the same. I seem to have an endless amount of black coats, pants & tops but […]

Open Doors

Last night I promised myself I would actually go to bed, when I went to bed but yet again it didn’t happen. I know that this may sound weird but in a recent conversation while lunching with my team during a shoot that we were producing, there was a serious number of offenders (myself included) who ..

Neutral Knits

Neutral Knits   A look that could define the phrase “sweater weather” and perhaps the next best thing to actually wearing a blanket…this practically head-to-toe knit look hits the comfort mark but still stays street appropriate. Showing a handful of neutral options below that can be mixed, matched and layered, to me, there are no rules…I […]

You don’t have to be athletic to appreciate the everyday wear of a sneaker. Embracing my sporty side here, or the closest thing to it, with one of the last looks to finish off the year.

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 & […]

Monnier Frères

I guess that you could say that I like to look at the world differently, sometimes it’s just a little more obvious than others.  Good hardware is one of my all time weaknesses and I’m pretty sure you’ve realised by now I’m not talking about the household kind.

Tan + Tweed

Tan + Tweed   Cheating a little on black lately with an array of Fall hues. The usual suspects of colors like tan, olive, camel and army green have been on regular rotation for me this season. I’ve added a handful of these muted, toned-down colors in easy to wear pieces like dresses and coats […]

Weekender

Weekender   When you work from home like me, the lines between weekdays and weekends sometimes start to blur a bit. I seem to have adopted an “off-duty” mentality almost full-time lately. Opting for sneakers instead of heels in most cases, scaled-back instead of over-styled, I love easy pieces that don’t require much thought (or effort!). And […]

Great Lengths

Great Lengths   Feeling carefree and cool (despite the heat!) in maxi length wrap skirt and off the shoulder top. All black everything and fairly covered up in a sea of cut off shorts, crop tops and floral summer dresses in my neighborhood…and while those are the most typical summer go-to’s (even for me) it’s nice to […]

Simple Silks + Statement Slides

Simple Silks Statement Slides   The simplest of silk dresses paired with an elevated slide for an uncomplicated yet pulled together look. My go-to pieces tend to be “no brainers” and this slip-on silk dress is just that, throw it on and go and it will always just work. The delicate fabric is perfectly contrasted with structured […]

Keeping it real

Keeping it Real   Shot in LA not too long ago, this look is all about my comfort zone, all black (almost) everything, offset with crisp white sneakers and oversized sunnies. Staples kicked up a notch with tailoring, texture or a slight twist on a basic. Crop flares, high-neck shell, leather kicks and gradient sunnies…a nod to […]

Final Hours

I swear I’m not giving you the cold shoulder, but let’s be honest there’s nothing like a good upper arm detail.  I’ve always been a believer in the theory that less is more and this instance a hint of shoulder through a man style crisp white shirt is just what the doctor ordered .. White […]

It ain’t just Celine and Vetements who have ignited our penchant for the wild west.  Bandana scarves, hardware heavy belts and a sturdy pair of ankle boots may already be hidding in your closet, and there’s no better time than now to roll those babies out with the kind of vigour that a western belle draw […]

pop of color in SoHo

I can’t figure out whether it’s the move back to NYC or the reuniting with 4 seasons (yes, my first true spring in many years), I couldn’t help but add a little more color into my life. When I saw this Acne Studios cardigan, I knew it was the perfect add to my wardrobe – blue has always been a favorite color of mine after all. If you haven’t been to lower Manhattan, you’re in for a treat. From SoHo to LES, every neighborhood is filled with history, fashion, art and lots of character. Hubby to this day makes fun me because how well I know SoHo. I did spend most my NYC days there back then, and *AHEM* now.

Lace Up

It’s safe to say that you can forget everything you once though of lace.  The imagination has previously conjured images of Victorian style dramas the minute the thought of lace had entered our minds.  Recently however thanks to the likes of Riccardo Tisci’s lace wrapped Givenchy warriors, lace has received a contemporary overhaul and with […]

Logic

The trans-seasonal wardrobe, in my opinion, should consist of a crisp white shirt, a good pair of denim jeans and let’s be honest a comfortable pair of ankle boots for all of those miles we walk girls.  Thanks to this trio, you’re set for any occasion .. 3 is always the magic number .. white […]

Loose Ends

Taipei travel journal

It was an amazing experience to see Taipei in person after listening to so many stories from Abel. This city is filled with amazing food, history and latte/nail art. Can’t get better than this! We walked a lot during this part of the trip – over 10 miles on one of the days, probably a good thing since we ate so much. So a simple white tee or a cozy cardigan and denim became my go-to uniform. To me, comfort is #1 priority in these kinds of situations. Highlights: In% Cafe (accidentally discovered the cutest 3-D latte art place), Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, Taipei 101 panoramic views, Shilin Night Market.
