BALANCE








WEARING: 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?

  8. I've had to learn to accept that when you dress differently (different from the mainstream), people will always try to put you in a box- often it's the people we know well who feel the urge to be most verbal. You seem to have accepted it, too, and done your own thing, regardless of criticism or judgment. Bravo! And I think you always look incredibly chic. Keep it up. :)

  18. That coat is so gorgeous and I love how you stay true to who you are. Even if others consider it "weird" or something. I think it's refreshing to see someone bold enough to actually use fashion as an expression of themselves rather than loudly announce it in generic, trendy stuff. It's something that annoys me to no end. Especially when they let the clothes wear them rather than the opposite and it's something I come across way too often.

    Have a gorgeous weekend doll and stay awesome!

  23. Your coat is really amazing!
    I don't think standing out is a bad thing, it's better to be interesting than boring if you ask me.
