COPYCAT / ALEXANDER WANG VS. ZARA STRAPPY BAG

posted in: Bag Dreams, COPYCAT | 0

The original is pretty much sold out, but I remember it being one of my lust items (the black one), that I never got to put my hands on unforch. When it comes to Alexander Wang, there is a big chance you can find a cheap(er) alternative somewhere (psssst, Zara!). The Zara version is currently on sale at the men’s department, and is probably sold out as well..

COOL HUNTING / ASOS DENIM SKIRT

posted in: COOL HUNTING | 0

I haven’t had denim skirts since forever, especially since mini denims are so so out, I forgot they existed. So yeah, Asos had a major sale, and even though I am trying to stop myself from overshopping, I did some small damages (oops, I just ordered from them again). Love this skirt, good with everything and is also fine at the office on one of those less tough days.

FASHION NEWS / KANYE WEST X MARGIELA COLLAB

posted in: Fashion, Fashion News, SHOE LAND | 0

Kanye West used to be my all time favourite rapper back in the days (out of the very few anyhow), until he sold his soul to the marketing idea of acting like the king of the world douche bag, and started to concentrate on everything  but making good tunes. That aside, what strikes me about him are his fashion ideas that I deeply love. You normally don’t expect a celebrity to come up with very unique fashion items everytime a collaboration hits the stores. I mean look at these Giuseppe Zanotti heels, or the beautiful Louis Vuitton sneakers, they might not be fore everyone and some will find either of them ugly, but there is a lot of thought behind them.

Back to the point, Kanye West has now collaborated with Maison Margiela and came up with these furry guys. Ugly? Perhaps, but so Kanye and yes unique, so respect for that. (909 USD price tag attached)

TOTALLY NEED OF THE DAY / ALEXANDER WANG INSIDE-OUT ROCKIE

As much as I appreciate Alexander Wang, I currently don’t own any of his ‘works’, although I could probably accept almost anything. His designs are perfectly what I could imagine myself being comfortable in all day every day. I always liked the Rocco bag, but never got around to at least considering, although it would be a perfect match next to my all time fave giant city Balenciaga (yeah metal, yeah spikes, yeah leather).

Is it me or is this Alexander Wang Inside-Out Rockie version just amazing? (And I won’t even bother talking about this special super colour it comes in)

TREND ATTACK / WHAT’S UP WITH THE SKINNY JEANS?

posted in: SMALL TALK, TREND ATTACK | 0

I remember being able to point out the year a picture was taken by the type of jeans worn. We have had all sorts of style come and go quite fast, and never really stick around, except when in early 2000′s the wicked skinny jeans trend kicked in and stayed forever. I have never loved a jeans trend as much as skinny, but I am also lucky they suit me and my legs are long and skinny enough for me to enjoy wearing skinnies non stop.

I heard about the 6% drop in skinny jeans sales this year, but since there is just nothing new and interesting around, I really think we will live with this trend for a long ass time. I always thought ballet slippers are forever, but somehow even they have been switched around and currently we have the pretty pointy ones to rock, but..but..it seems the skinnies will not die off any time soon making them probably the longest lasting trend? If you think about it even Yosetime Sam had shown full love for them, and yes they do kinda suit some of the men out there.

SMALL TALK / JUST GOT MYSELF A NIKON

posted in: SMALL TALK | 0

This was in my to do, or rather to buy list for half a year for sure, and I have finally ordered myself a Nikon D7100 after reading a zillion of reviews, it made perfect sense to go for the best enthusiast camera. Even though I have been working with fashion and street style photographers for ages, the closest I got to a DSRL was by helping hold one. So here I am, I ordered two lenses to get the best out of it, so it’s time to learn the manual, ask for help and do a bunch of photography courses I guess. See ya .))
