Go long, baby!

Back to basics with the iconic raincoat simply known as the classic trench, a fashion crowd staple and the best invention since sliced bread. Well no that’s not true, denim is. It’s no secret that the tried-and-true neutral is the perfect transitional topper for Spring, meant to be flung over any and all outfits no matter the occasion. Light and cozy, it comes with its very own lighting team and personal wind machine brought to you by the climate of Los Angeles in vain hopes of favorable scenarios of bumping into an ex. Although…perhaps in current reality, converting it into a throw blanket wrapped over silk pajamas never leaving bed isn’t a bad idea either. No downside whatsoever. Necessary in most cases.
Primarily emphasizing on long and loosely fitted shapes where proportions are a key element to this silhouette. It works best keeping it simple yet balanced with a fitted ribbed top sandwiched between a gargantuan coat and floor grazing wide-legged jeans, virtually remaining a repeat offender among the rotation as of late. A bit demure-but effective office uniform. Take a gander at some lengthy basics that will boost the look generating a strong ensemble. Mix’n’match everyday separates bringing your wardrobe to life without breaking the bank. Go long, baby! Causal finishes relating to sneakers/net bag signal an unconstrained tone relevant to California; cue my morning coffee run look. Caution: To all you haphazard eaters out there like myself, (nemesis to white denim) avoid wearing your avo-on-toast for breakfast.
Because Tide-to-go is your best friend…

My Ode To Boudoir Dressing

What is it about the bedroom we crave (I mean besides sex, you guys! Come on! You have a dirty little mind, don’t you!). This isn’t that type of blog. Now back to topic. Oh yeah, wait a minute, now I remember, I must have some kind of sartorial amnesia. Was it me or was virtually every fashion designer, editor or blogger ramming the trend of boudoir dressing down our throats for past few months, so much so that I began to have hives the moment I saw someone wearing a slip dress. Much to my surprise, the trend finally wore me down. Or shall I say peaked my interest. Immediately, I combed through my closet picking and sifting through random knits and dresses (and making a fucking mess of clothes right in the middle of my bedroom floor, by the way). It wasn’t pretty. Needless to say, I’m disgusted with myself, the trend of boudoir dressing has absolutely swept me off my feet. I have officially joined the natives. Now I feel like one of those people being called home to the mother ship. However, let me state that trends do tend to spiral out of control, not to mention the overkill, too much trend over-exposure and how I loathe it, but I will say this after a little knit layering in my closet that day, I caved, totally and completely. I buckled under pressure. Yup, I sure did and you know what, I would do it again.
