How to go to Coachella and not look like a hippie asshole.
Keep the florals to a minimum. Don’t give people seizures. Don’t even think about coloured Ray-Bans.
1. Any kind of Mara Hoffman bathing suit will get you through the festival, really
2. Karen Walker’s Helter Skelters, which have been sold out, like, everywhere. Sorry.
3. Kitsune x Aigle rainboots (available along with awesome soundtracks for your shopping pleasure at Kitsune)
4. Gladiator sandals ( buy em in bulk here)
5. Floral panel 5 cap ones (similar here)
6. Sleek black tote (no fringe, no Aztec pattern, no tie die) from Loeffler Randall
I’ve recently moved to a new apartment, and have been looking for decor inspiration pretty much anywhere. I never really had to decorate before, so I’ve never really had to settle on a style before. In university it was all kind of piled on top of each other because, well, university. In my previous apartment, the piling on theme continued mostly to an incessant lack of space. But now I have to decide on what my style seems to be. So this week is dedicated to the things I am obsessed with right now: light pinks/golds/yellows, Moroccan, old French chic, minimalism and geometrical art. Cue: gold bar carts, lucite nesting tables, golden cages, mirrored trays and an excess of blush/gold. Today’s theme? Colours. Take with a grain of salt, because I have no idea what that combination creates… Stay tuned.

It’s fall. And that means a little more than rich shades of burgundies, and suede booties, and thickly knit scarves. It also means red wine, and re-organization, and hot cups of chai (pumpkin, vanilla, anything goes) latte. And cuddling up in bed. And red lipstick, with lots of black. And silks, and textures, and messy top knots. It means the cozy, comforting season is here–and so’s the time to pick up a great book, sleep in a little (just a little), and bust out the layers.
A deep, red lip for those mornings when sleeping in means makeup foregone
When Cab means one thing, and one thing only. And it has nothing to do with transportation, but staying right where you are.
Cozy, minimalist decor.
Comfort food. For those cold days and indulgement.
Fluffy, fresh sheets.
Deep shades of burgundy, greys, camels, and of course–blacks.
New shit from NYFW. Pretty damn dope. All courtesy of my new (Canadian!) discovery, Four Pins. Sleek and clean as anything.
There are so many things about an outfit that strike you. The fold of cascading fabric, the way a leather-embossed accessory catches the light, the manner in which the individual encased within it moves. Then there’s the colours, the details, the finishing touches. There are so many people (the most hopeless pragmatist, my dad, amongst them) that don’t quite catch these nuances, who see design as a means to an end–but it’s much more than that, isn’t it? The Sartorialist had just released his new tribute to that world (The Satorialist: Closer), and it most definitely warrants a closer look.
It’s almost that time of year, and inspiration’s everywhere. My favourites are in the detail: the unexpectedly bright sock, the lace cuff, the textured contrast. With lace and leather transitioning from summer and combining with the heavier, wooly fabrics for fall, the contrast makes an insane impact. Try it out, I’ll totally vouch for it.
