Melissa Araujo Dress (New Collection Coming at the end of Summer), Rodebjer Kimono Coat, Adidas Superstar 2, Club Monaco Clutch and The Haute Pursuit's Cuffs.
I always feel that I am wearing something that is borderline, maybe like a costume, simply not what you see most people wearing around. It is a fine balance choosing pieces like this coat, which has been described to me as a house-coat or doctor's lab jacket. I have never shyed away from being different, what I like to refer to as "unique" (what some really might call weird).
Growing up in Brasil it was quite clear to me and my poor mother (who really, really wanted a regular daughter that would love girly things) that from an early age, I was never that kind of girl. People always tried to figure it out or put me in a box, but every time they thought they knew what I was all about I would change things up. I love minimal, monochrome and simple but I am certainly not one dimensional. I think every individual is so much more than just labels, don't you?
