GRATITUDE


WEARINGCameo The Label Shirt, H&M Bermudas, Alexander Wang Marion Bag, Zara Sandals, Club Monaco Sunnies and Vanessa Mooney Bracelet.

The past week was a mix between hard work and enjoyment. Hard work because even though it was my "birthday week", I worked non stop to get Two M Projects where it needs to be (good old deadlines). Enjoyment because I can finally see some of the samples taking shape and form. Any free time I had was spent on Skype, with friends and family, and I got to spend real time with my friends over the weekend. Their company was great and I had (many) birthday drinks. Thank you everyone who took the time to make me feel special, for all the love and positivity. "The more grateful you are for what you have, the more the universe wants to give you. Abundance favours gratitude." Feeling so blessed! ♡

BIRTHDAY WEEK


WEARING: Melissa Araujo Slip On Dress, American Apparel Mesh Dress, H&M Leather Jacket, Alexander Wang Marion Bag, Alexander Wang Kori Boots, 8 Other Reasons Rings, and Margiela Necklace Worn as Bracelet.

I can't believe it is my birthday week again, time is going by so quickly. Friday is not a bad day for a birthday and I have some exciting plans for the week + weekend, with some of my best friends. As for birthday gifts I am a hard person to buy for, here are few links if anyone needs a hint! I am also a fan of an emerging tradition of envelopes with cash, this way there is no disappointment. Here is my wish list:

1. Rachael Ruddick Le Trop Bag 2. Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag 3. Acne Jensen Boots 4. Carven Curly Wool Coat 5. Another Feather Curve Cuff 6. Kara BackPack, 7. Tom Ford Book.

Before I forget, head out to my friend Vanessa's blog The Haute Pursuit, she has a new lookbook out that we shot last week, her THPSHOP also has a whole new layout.

SUMMER COATS



WEARING: Rodebjer Kimono CoatCyeoms Crop Top, DIY Skirt, Celine Trio Bag, Zara Sandals and Ray Ban Sunnies.

Sure, I probably don't need a Summer coat, but as I have mentioned many times, I am constantly cold. So the excitement of wearing sleeveless pieces ends pretty quickly for me, as I always look for an extra layer. In the past I have worn my leather jackets year around (and I still do), but now I find that lighter fabrics such as linen, cotton or even silk work better for me during the day at least, then I resort to leather for the evenings. Here are my three favourite coats for the Summer that can definitely be styled during the Spring and Fall, they also have added versatility as they can all be worn as dresses:

1.  Rodebjer Kimono Dress Coat, 2. Front Row Shop Duster Coat and 3COS Silk Dress Coat.

NEOPRENE AKA WETSUIT MATERIAL


WEARING: Novevite Neoprene Top, Cameo The Label Shorts, Club Monaco Top and Sunnies, H&M Bag. Until recently, my only experience with Neoprene was with my beach wear, since last year though we have all seen it on the runway. A lot of designers have incorporated in their collections, beyond just using it for surfing and swimsuits designs. I decided to give this fabric a try. The Black Novevite Neoprene Top oozes strength, I love the fact that it reflects a sport silhouette and it is not clingy. I am looking forward to wearing it more this coming Fall, as it insulates well and I am always trying to keep warm. Are you guys for or against neoprene outside the swimwear section?
