OOTD – Layer Cake

Image

Simply put, in cold weathers you layer. However if you care about what you are wearing more than anything, you are probably finding ways of doing so in all ways possible.
I have always been a fan of long sleeve. Long sleeve t-shirt, sweater, dress pretty much anything that you wear on your upper body will most likely be with a long sleeve. Until l came across that perfect tuxedo dress that just so happened to be with NO sleeve. The horror. Obviously it had to be bought and figured out later, so my idea for this including considering the weather was to implement a warm cashmere piece in an earth tone to slow the sexiness down a little bit. However if you want to avoid being mistaken for a librarian wearing that kind of layering, something needs to be added to this look. So I went for my to-go-to safe card which is leather, suede or faux leather 😉 . You could never go wrong with a leather Balenciaga anything so pants and clutch its was.

Style Stealer of the week – Clemence Posey

Image

Ok , So I usually don’t have a lot to say about actresses when it comes to style. However we absolutely adore Clemence!
She just has that effortless parisian style that we all try to achieve from time to time but never really get there. Her signature style is quite romantic and she often wears liberty flower prints combined with a lot of leather and suede.
One of our favorite looks this spring season is her long skirt with a leather biker and matching biker boots which she carries so incredibly well with that wavy blonde bob!
Clemence also stunns in her tomboy style thus she often wears boots and tailored blazers with a pleated trouser to shows, sometimes with just a lace top or a simple white shirt to keep it classy.
Another way we have seen her is in a signature Chanel tweed piece combined with a mini skirt strutting around the European fashion shows with a sky high heel to stay true to her super french heritage.

Either outfit, we love her sense of delicacy and cannot wait to catch her next time in Paris!

Stay tuned for more “Style Stealer” action!

Look of the day – minimal 70’s

Image

As we all know now, the 70’s influence is officially everywhere and you couldn’t avoid it if you tried. However, it is not quite the average 70’s dressing that is all over the runways, its a fresh and updated version with a minimal approach this season, so I wanted to channel a daily look which still touches on the super trend but in a more simple way.
I found this yellow cashmere jumper just a few days before we took off to New York in a consignment shop called “Ampersand” near larchmont in LA.
I know it is a little bit to hot in LA right now to wear 100% cashmere but I just fell in love with the color and the fact that Its slightly cropped. It works really well with a high waisted trouser and a pump for everyday office or like my days running around to meetings around town 😉

Inspo of the week – NYC

Image

After a long time on traveling foot, it is finally time to go through all the material we assembled during our time away!
Our time during NYFW was super hectic and inspirational and we wanted to channel our favourite looks in our own way within the short of space of time we had.
Living on the east coast during this time made me realize how much I layered and how many styles I was mixing! Rick Owens sweatpants went with Stan Smiths and a huge tent-sized wool coat. Cashmere sweaters on top of other cashmere sweaters paired with ponchos and suede trousers, and these were our “safe” options! Obviously the cold weather conditions had a great impact on our outfit choices but I have to say that I really miss the ways of dressing already!Screen Shot 2015-03-06 at 23.18.43
