Last hurrah for winter fashion! let’s bring those hats out! I am very fond of berets. I think they make the perfect statement accessory. It ties up your whole look and gives off a Parisian vibe regardless of what you’re wearing.
This was probably the quickest photo shoot we have ever done, 15 minutes approx. We came straight from Starbucks after having a grande each of our usual drinks, exchanged opinions about various topics and laughed our little heads off. Sometimes not having a plan is the best plan. Being pushed for time we got lucky with a beautiful pumpkin spice latte inspired sunset. Don’t you just love watching the sunset to cap off the day?
I was once asked, If I go on a holiday which country would I visit? I quickly responded, countries with big cities. Ultimately, NYC and the rest of the fashion week cities. I love the cosmopolitan vibe—fashion forward people, street noise and random conversations, colorful lights and an array of cuisines, etc. I find the cities more interesting and at the same time mysterious. Don’t get me wrong I have an appreciation for nature but like they say “once a city girl, always a city girl”.
As a stylist and with my deep passion for fashion, I pride myself in wearing the latest trends but have always avoided patterns. Maybe, because I am vertically challenged and wearing patterns wouldn’t really help in creating the illusion of height or I just really prefer a clean minimalist look. But I must admit this pattern really got my attention. First of all, I have worn gingham as part of my uniform during my entire university days. Secondly, it’s almost always in black and white (which is a huge factor for me). Lastly, it creates an effortless but sophisticated statement. Ditch your stripes and florals— gingham is making a huge come back this season.
