MIXED FEELINGS

 
WEARING: H&M Faux Fur Vest, Vintage Leather Jacket, Splendid Zipper Leggings, Alexander Wang Marion Bag, Club Monaco Sunnies and Thrifted Shoes

Well, Spring is supposedly around the corner; but I have to say that it does not yet feel like that here. Until it arrives, I will continue to wear leather and fur (or in this case faux fur). A great way to break up an all black outfit is by adding some "colour" to your shoes. Here, I went with metallic, which for me is as much of a basic, as black and white. Long live simplicity and minimalism, where a colour or one piece is in itself enough.

Good news: I have finally finished drafting all my patterns, and purchased amazingly soft fabric. The cutting has already began, if things go to plan and I don't have any road blocks, I should be done that phase by next week. I am so excited, anxious, you name it - if there is an emotion I am feeling it - up and down, my heart and mind are constantly freaking out. Every new collection, old feelings re-emerge and others also arrive. The assuring thing is that I have finished and survived my own doubts every collection, so I am positive that this one will be the same.

  7. I like it. I like the concept of breaking the black. It makes black ensemble less (goth) ostentatious.

  11. I love how you layered the vest over the jacket. I had thought this was a one piece coat. Very nice.

  29. The first picture Melissa is amazing ! You should do a wardrobe feature. I know most of your clothes are black but the way you put things together is really great.
